Charles William Young passed in February 2011. Charles was married at the time to Deborah Jean Grey Young. Deborah found her husband home alone on 25 February 2011 in his home in Corker Creek, Tennessee off of New Highway 68. Corker Creek sits in Monroe County Tennessee.

Charles’ son, Marvin William Young (depicted in the YouTube below), travelled from his home and workplace in Florida to attend to his father’s-Charles-estate.

Marvin discovered evidence of criminal activity regarding Charles’ estate. A criminal enterprise that included a long list of participating outlaw actors.

While Marvin’s investigation broadened, Deborah maintained control over her former husband’s possessions, property and assorted assets.

Deborah Jean Grey Young remarried sometime in September 2011, seven (7) months after Charles’ death.

Deborah married a man named David Godwin.

Then, just about seven (7) months after remarrying, Deborah Godwin passed away on 8 April 2012 under what are now recognized as suspicious circumstances. There are suggestions of foul play at the hands of new husband David Godwin.

Marvin approached David Godwin after Deborah died in the hopes of reconciling the estate of Charles William Young, now under David Godwin’s control.

Recognizing that Marvin held solid evidence of what I’m now calling David Godwin’s claim jumping of the Charles William Young estate, David Godwin aggressively leveled a host of false charges against Marvin for which Marvin is entangled within the massive corruption that describes Monroe County Tennessee.

I’m guessing at the spelling’s of the various names above.

Not being reported in the press:

J. Reed Dixon is the judge to the General Sessions Court in Monroe County.

Dixon is the only lower court judge in Monroe County.

On Thursday, 8 October 2009 Dixon refused to issue criminal summons naming Assistant District Attorney James H. Stutts or Gary D. Pettway for their obstruction as we understood the nature of the Stutts-Pettway obstruction on 8 October.

Fast forward to 4 May 2010

J. Reed Dixon is the judge who found probable cause that I’d committed each of four Class “A” misdemeanors:

1. Riot.
2. Disorderly conduct.
3. Disturbing a public meeting or procession.
4. Resisting arrest.

Dixon’s probable cause hearing began at 1:00 p.m. (1300 hours local).

J. Reed Dixon is recognized as a person who, by failing to issue criminal summons last October 2009, is blame worthy and stands as one of the proximate causes to the eventual necessity of Citizens’ arrest in April 2010.

Said another way: Dixon’s refusal to issue criminal summons in October 2009 represents one cause of many in what became the necessary and inevitable Citizens’ arrest in April 2010.

Recall that Dixon demurred last October stating 1) The criminal accusations brought before Dixon were not judicible anywhere in Tennessee State (“it’s all federal’), and 2) Jim Stutts and Reed Dixon had once practiced together as partners in the same law firm.

Staff writer Michael Thomason correctly reported that Dixon was challenged regarding
Dixon’s conflict of interest during the 4 May 2010 hearing, but gave himself permission to continue with the hearing.

Again, Reed Dixon accepted the state’s case against me, found probable cause, and sent (moved) the case to the Monroe County Grand Jury #1. (CLICK HERE)

Assistant District Attorney James H. Stutts presented the state’s case during the 4 May 2010 hearing. Stutts called two law enforcement officers to the stand as witnesses.
My case is now moved to the Monroe County Grand Jury #1 (sitting on 3 June 2010) to determine whether to move the case to a trial jury.

Dixon’s work is complete.

I went to the Monroe County Courthouse before the General Sessions hearing on 4 May. I pulled the from the bulletin board just outside Marty Cook’s office (Monroe County Circuit Court Clerk) the public announcement naming Gary D. Pettway the Grand Jury foreman for the Thursday, 3 June 2010 assembly.

Cook made copies at my request.

Then I left the County Courthouse and walked to the General Sessions trailer park courtroom (a few blocks away, across the street).

It was publicly announced, and Dixon knew he was assigning my case to the Monroe County Grand Jury #1.Monroe County Grand Jury #1 was sitting with Pettway as foreman on 1 April 2010!

Jury #1 witnessed Gary Pettway Citizens’ arrest!

Pettway’s 3 June 2010 Grand Jury #1 is to decide whether my case goes to a trial jury.


Every person who knows Gary Pettway is barred from sitting in any Jury deciding any issue that involves Gary Pettway.

People sitting in a Grand Jury wherein Pettway is foreman are certainly prohibited.

Everyone sitting in 2010 Monroe County Grand  “Jury #1” and “Jury #2” are proscribed from making decisions regarding those four misdemeanor charges leveled against me.

The very special conflict regarding “Jury #1” is in plain view.

Monroe County officials must select a new Grand Jury with a different foreman to properly adjudicate my case.

What’s going to happen instead (I opine) is that it’s full speed ahead going to “Jury #1,” – Gary Pettway foreman.

Reed Dixon is out of the picture

Should Monroe County Grand Jury #1 move the case to the lower criminal court (and won’t that be fun!), a different judge will be sitting on the bench.

First Amendment Dead in Tennessee pb

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


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 |


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 |


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.

In re: United States v. Darren Wesley Huff

CASE #: 125581


Unites States Court of Appeals for the federal Sixth Circuit

540 Potter Stewart United States Courthouse

100 East Fifth Street

Cincinnati, Ohio 45202

 And many others in a wider distribution

To: Chief Judge Alice M. Batchelder

Copies to: Various and numerous government agencies and law enforcement offices previously contacted

With waning deference and respect I write to you this day to report the scope and operation of a government I’ve been trained to fight against and destroy.

I sound the alert that a fraud is being perpetrated on the U.S Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. Federal and state judges, federal and state prosecutors, federal and state law enforcement officers, lower ranking state and federal court officers and Mr. Huff’s court appointed defense attorneys are criminally complicit in the fraud being visited upon this federal appellate Court.

I am commanding you to recognize this fraud and release Navy Veteran Darren Wesley Huff as an innocent man. I demand and command that Mr. Huff’s innocence be publicly and loudly declared and that Mr. Huff’s name be cleared causing to expunge all government records naming Mr. Huff a criminal in matters related to his case that have come into existence since April 2010.

I am commanding that the Court become the forcing function behind causing criminal investigations against those people who have acted to wrongfully harm or injure Mr. Huff resulting in his illegal incarceration presently. I furthermore call upon this Court to lash out and act against the fraud presently being visited upon this bench.

I am commanding that the Court order a federal grand jury assembled for these express purposes. The grand jury is to be impaneled to hear my testimony and inspect my voluminous investigative work product representing proofs and evidences going to Mr. Huff’s innocence and egregious maltreatment at the hands of various government officials; then to broaden their investigation from that starting point. For the sake of efficiency this federal grand jury is to be formed near the community of Athens, Tennessee.

Federal agents, assisted by Tennessee Start law enforcement officials arrested Mr. Huff in Tennessee State on Friday, 30 April 2010 on charges arising from activities that occurred in Madisonville, Tennessee on Tuesday, 20 April 2010 that have become commonly referred to as “The Madisonville Hoax.”

Federal Bureau of Investigation Mark A. Van Balen criminally accused Mr. Huff of being physically present armed with gun(s) at the R. Beecher Witt government building in Madisonville, TN on Tuesday, 20 April 2010. Van Balen further asserted under oath that Mr. Huff, while standing outside the R. Beecher Witt government building armed with gun(s), was thinking about using gun(s) to commit acts of violence against persons and property at that location.

Van Balen stated under oath that Mr. Huff was joined with other armed individuals at R. Beecher Witt government building and outside the building with Mr. Huff who were thinking about joining Mr. Huff at that location in carrying out acts of violence against persons and property using gun(s).

The truth is Mr. Huff was never physically present at the R. Beecher Witt government building at any moment in time on Tuesday, 20 April 2010. Enclosed, see former Sergeant of Marines William Looman’s sworn statement. Other fact witnesses, eye witnesses, ear witnesses have always been available to attest to Mr. Huff’s whereabouts in Madisonville, Tennessee on 20 April 2010.

The truth is that Mr. Huff was unarmed at every moment he was physically present in Madisonville, Tennessee on Tuesday, 20 April 2010. Again I invite focused attention to Marine Sergeant Looman’s sworn affidavit.

State and federal prosecutors, law enforcement officials, judges and court officers and public defenders all blocked unassailable testimonial and physical evidences proving Mr. Huff’s innocence from ever coming forth. They have instead created, enhanced and embellished upon The Madisonville Hoax!

Mr. Huff’s presence in Madisonville, Tennessee on Tuesday, 20 April 2010 was due to the discovery that Mr. Gary Pettway had stood in the Monroe County Tennessee grand jury as its foreman for twenty-eight (28) consecutive years.

The hearing Mr. Huff wanted to attend was part of a process seeking to expose Mr. Pettway’s criminal conduct and eventually effect Pettway’s peaceful removal from Pettway’s illegal yet officially declared job as “grand jury foreman.”

Federal and state government functionaries took action in bad faith against Mr. Huff and myself based on the false claim that Mr. Gary Pettway was, in fact, a legally summoned and impaneled “juror.”

Mr. Gary Pettway testified at Mr. Huff’s October 2011 federal trial passing himself off as a lawful and legal “juror” who was the object of Mr. Huff’s “thoughts” on Tuesday, 20 April 2010.

Mr. Pettway committed perjury by so testifying.

Other state and federal functionaries, mendacious muckrakers, embellished Mr. Pettway’s perjury, adding their own.They reported that Mr. Pettway, with other people and property, were somehow, in someway at risk of being harmed, injured or damaged on Tuesday, 20 April 2010 by Mr. Huff or other innocent men and women who came to Madisonville to attend a public court hearing as court watchers. 

This was all accomplished through the guise of The Madisonville Hoax.

State and federal officials used Mr. Huff in The Madisonville Hoax as a pawn to extend the durable myth that criminal court appointed foreman in Tennessee State were (1) jurors, and (2) legally acting as foremen.

One hundred and two (102) days ago, on Friday, 20 September 2013, Assistant Tennessee Attorney General Kyle Hixson, in a brief filed with the Tennessee’s Criminal Appellate Court in Knoxville gave up the game.

Hixson declared in an affirmative admission against state’s-interest that Mr. Pettway had never, in fact, been a “juror.”

The Hixson Brief affirmatively declares that no Tennessee grand jury foreman has ever been a “juror” going back scores of years.

This admission is ominous. Tennessee State law declares that the foreman of the grand jury, like any other member of a Tennessee State trial jury or grand jury must be in fact a juror.

The Madisonville Hoax was a brazen law enforcement operation the design of which was to cloak the decades old practice of criminal court judges illicitly anointing their own non-juror advocates and sycophants into what might have otherwise been a lawful grand jury.

Mr. Huff became a government tool, a pawn in breathing life into their hoax from that day to this day.

I’ve been conducting an investigation into the Madisonville Hoax ever since Tuesday, 20 April 2010. State and federal judges and prosecutors have ruthlessly blocked every effort I’ve made to report the results of my investigation and offer up for examination my investigative work product. I hold extensive proofs and evidences intended for presentation to a seated federal or state grand jury.

My investigation proves no prospective court-watcher who came to Madisonville, Tennessee on 20 April 2010 attempting to attend a court hearing that day carried a gun in the city of Madisonville.

No court watcher intended or planned any violence of any description. I have all their names. I’ve been in contact with them all. I have statements from several.

Creators, facilitators and agitators of the Madisonville Hoax steadfastly maintain to this day, some under their perjured oaths, that Mr. Huff carried a gun in Madisonville on that troubled day.

They continue to maintain and falsely report that other frustrated court watchers, wrongly accused as was Mr. Huff, were carrying guns with intent to carry out violence.


It’s all a lie. It’s all part of the Madisonville Hoax! None of the court-watchers carried a gun. Mr. Huff did not carry a gun.

Mr. Huff was never physically present at any time at the R. Beecher Witt government building on Tuesday, 20 April 2010.

Mr. Huff’s variously assigned defense attorneys were all on notice that this information was available to them then as now. An exhaustive record has always been available to them as the volume of amassed information, proof and evidences of Mr. Huff’s innocence continued to grow. Mr. Huff’s appointed defense counsels turned their heads away from all of it, laughing up their sleeves as they walked away.

In April 2011 Federal Judge H. Bruce Guyton personally intercepted my direct submissions to the two federal grand juries sitting in Knoxville seeking to appear before one of both of those two assemblies. I was prepared to prove Mr. Huff’s innocence to the grand jury. I was prepared to tell the grand jury, under oath, about my discoveries regarding The Madisonville Hoax and the part played in the hoax by state and federal officials so far as I knew in the spring of 2011.

Guyton personally blocked my submissions.

Guyton then personally refused to grant me permission to appear, deflecting my attempts to the U.S. Attorney for Tennessee’s Eastern District, William C. Killian.

H. Bruce Guyton was the presiding judge in Mr. Huff’s federal prosecution at the very moment H. Bruce Guyton obstructed my efforts to report to the federal grand jury on The Madisonville Hoax.

ONE OF THE LEAD PERPETRATORS OF "THE MADISONVILLE HOAX!" ~ William C. Killian - U.S. Attorney for Tennessee's Eastern District


U.S. Attorney Killian, named as one of the perpetrators in The Madisonville Hoax, continues to block my efforts to appear before a federal grand jury to this day. See Killian’s enclosed letter dated Friday, 14 June 2013 that reintroduces Guyton’s letter dated Wednesday, 6 April 2011.

I was defeated again just fourteen (14) days ago, attempting to report to a local Tennessee State grand jury regarding the criminal court judges’ take down, take away and the take over of our local grand juries by way of judicial appointments of non-juror foreman.

I call attention once more to the Hixson Brief dated Friday 20 September 2013.

It was the criminal court judge, judicially anointed, county employee non-juror foreman, actually named in my submission as a fraud using the Hixson Brief as evidence, who personally blocked my submission and presentation from being reviewed or heard by the grand jury on Tuesday 17 December 2013, and then ordered a deputy sheriff to escort me from the courthouse.

I’ve aggressively attempted to report these matters to the Federal Bureau of Investigation at various locations in the country.

One of my more significant and memorable contacts occurred on 28 June 2011 (3½ months before Darren Huff’s October 2011 trial). I met with Special Agent Roxanne West for approximately three hours in Knoxville.

I’ve lost count of my reports to the FBI. They are numerous. And all of them ignored and trashed.

One reason why is that The Madisonville Hoax, as an extra added bonus, allowed for federal judges, prosecutors, law enforcement officials and court functionaries to exploit false accusations against Mr. Huff so as to achieve the first ever successful “thought crime” prosecution in United States history.

Van Balen’s sworn affidavit is based upon what Van Balen personally thought, and other FBI agents and law enforcement agents said they personally thought Mr. Huff was thinking about.

Maintaining Mr. Huff’s wrongful conviction in place, as FBI Special Agent Scott Johnson gleefully reported on 5 May 2012 is supremely important:

“This case is monumental to the FBI because it will set precedent for case law in future domestic terrorism cases throughout the United States.” (LINK)

I am not going into my efforts to report these matters to Tennessee State law enforcement officers that are as unceasing and unrelenting as they are numerous.

One other man who has been regularly defeated in attempting to bring to the attention of a sitting grand jury those actions of a corrupt government, and particularly those actions taken against Mr. Huff wrote this yesterday:

In Devvy Kidd’s piece today she refers to the movie “Open Range” where Kevin Costner tells the complainer who asks what he can do” You’re men ain’t you?” The complainer says he didn’t raise his sons to get killed, to which Costner replies: “You may not know this, but there’s things that gnaw on a man worse than dying.”

Darren’s hearing is one of those incremental crossroads things where we take an extra large step further into servitude it the state prevails.

I am sure no one will die if they make a stand. To put their name to paper and send it to a judge or stand with Darren in the courtroom will not get anyone killed. But to not make a stand and continue the incessant pecking on a computer keyboard will accomplish nothing.

Walt [I’m Walt] has nailed the dire circumstances involved in this hearing. If the state succeeds it will hamper the future efforts of all activists, but most specifically veterans.

The state motto in New Hampshire is: “Live Free or Die.” That’s what Costner was referring to. Are we there yet?

Getting close…

Repeating for emphasis, I SAY AGAIN to this U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, that I’m reporting in this EMERGENCY CITIZEN’S WRIT the scope and operation of the government I was trained to fight against and destroy.

The immediate reaction I expect to cause is that this Court take actions to guard itself against the fraud being committed against it, and after that see to Mr. Huff’s release from federal prison.

Accept my EMERGENCY CITIZEN’S WRIT as but another sworn criminal complaint. I’m calling for the immediate arrests of persons I’m able to name in the conduct of those criminal acts I’m able to credibly report.

Accept this as but one more demand to appear before sitting federal and state grand juries. Accept it as well as an emergency court filing in Mr. Huff’s pending judicial review.

Distribution of this writing is online and wide. Common law grand juries emerging around the country are free to use this actionable information as they wish.

Beware the fury of patient men. 

Dauntless and Unafraid in Defiance, Born fighting,

Darren’s only stop in Madisonville on Tuesday, 20 April 2010 was at Donna’s Old Town Cafe.




Photos below show Darren standing in front of Donna’s eatery with other folks who’d traveled to Madisonville to attend a public court hearing. Darren never made it to the R. Beecher Witt government building courthouse. Donna’s was as close as he got (two-tenths of a mile distant ~ 4 blocks away on a different street).

There were many others not photographed who were with Darren at Donna’s who are not shown in the photos above.

I count myself as one of those eye witnesses.

There exists a great deal more evidence proving the state and federal “MADISONVILLE HOAX.” which extends as well to prove Darren Huff’s innocence.

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 |


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.”

William C. Killian - U.S. Attorney for Tennessee's Eastern District

William C. Killian – U.S. Attorney for Tennessee’s Eastern District

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.

“Madisonville Hoax” Eyewitness Refutes Government’s Claims against Federal Prisoner Darren Huff pb

Posted By Sharon Rondeau On Friday, June 21, 2013 @ 12:32 PM In National No Comments


by Sharon Rondeau

On April 20, 2010, the federal government, in concert with corrupt Monroe County, TN law enforcement, carried out a massive police presence based on the false threat of a “courthouse takeover” which never happened. Ten days later, Darren Wesley Huff was arrested for crimes he did not commit. He was convicted on one charge on October 18, 2011 after the judge refused to accept the jury’s “hung” verdict on one charge and acquittal on the other.

(Jun. 21, 2013) — On June 19, 2013, The Post & Email spoke with William R. Looman, who was with Darren Wesley Huff throughout the day and evening of April 20, 2010 and produced a notarized affidavit to the events that day in Madisonville, TN, the day on which Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III attended a short assignment hearing at the Monroe County courthouse located in Madisonville.  Huff had traveled to Madisonville and locked his legally-owned firearms in his truck before entering a restaurant located across from the courthouse with Looman, who also secured his firearms before exiting his vehicle.

On April 30, Huff was arrested on two federal firearms charges after numerous eyewitnesses were interviewed following Fitzpatrick’s hearing ten days before.  Huff was convicted on one charge on October 28, 2011 and is currently imprisoned at the federal prison in Texarkana, TX.

On April 19 and 20, 2010, members of a pro-Obama online group, The Fogbow, called then-Madisonville Mayor Allan Watson to convey false “threats” allegedly posed by Fitzpatrick which had, in fact, never been uttered.

Screenshot from The Fogbow’s “Forum,” where the group’s direct involvement in staging the “Madisonville Hoax” was discussed.  The text reads, “Mayor Watson confirmed that they are working towards Fitzpatrick”

Despite mainstream news reports which failed to interview eyewitnesses, there were no threats made, confrontations with law enforcement, or arrests effected on April 20.  Law enforcers had been present in an unusual showing that day of approximately 100 combined FBI, TBI, local police, sheriffs’ deputies, Tennessee Highway Patrol, and a sniper team on the roof of the courthouse.  However, an affidavit from an FBI agent signed six days later stated that “at least a dozen” individuals were armed and planned to “take over the courthouse” with Darren Huff as their ringleader.

Huff’s arrest ten days later was based on the agent‘s “personal knowledge and observations” despite the agent’s second-hand account, lack of identification of law enforcement officers upon whose information he reportedly relied, and incorrect date and location of some of the events described.

Darren Huff has been incarcerated since October 18, 2011, when the jury found him guilty on one of the two counts with which he was charged.  The jury initially acquitted Huff on one charge and produced a “hung verdict on the other but was advised by Judge Thomas Varlan to “try again,” after which it produced a “guilty” verdict.

Since at least 2009, the federal government has been applying extra scrutiny to Second Amendment advocates, Christians, military veterans, members of various Tea Party groups, traditional marriage supporters, and “conservatives” in general as evidenced by the IRS, Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security (DHS), FBI and Department of Justice.  White male veterans appear to be a specific target.

Huff is white, male, Christian, veteran, pro-Second Amendment citizen and member of the Oathkeepers, which has been demonized by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).  The SPLC works in concert with the Obama regime to marginalize Americans who ascribe to some of the above beliefs and value systems.

Our interview with Looman follows.


THE POST & EMAIL:  Did you hear that anyone would be carrying guns illegally or with the intent to do harm on April 20?

MR. LOOMAN:  No. Darren and I both knew that we would be carrying weapons because we both held legal conceal-carry permits and we have reciprocity.  To be frank with you, I don’t go anywhere without a weapon, whether it’s Wal-Mart or Madisonville, TN.

THE POST & EMAIL:  Do you recall what time you arrived in Madisonville?

MR. LOOMAN:  Not off the top of my head; it was three years ago.  It was in the morning, and I was about 30 minutes behind Darren when he got pulled over.  I had been on the cell phone with him.  I was about ten minutes behind him at one point, and then I pulled over, remembering that I had two five-gallon diesel jugs in the back of my truck that were empty.  To eliminate the possibility, if there were law enforcement there (and I didn’t know that there would be) of them thinking that I was coming in to do something stupid, I pulled off an exit and got rid of the diesel cans in a dumpster about 20 miles outside of Madisonville.  I didn’t want the local populace or officers or whoever thinking that I was coming in to burn down something.  So I ended up 30 minutes behind him, and I was on the phone coming off the exit from I-75, and he said, “Hey, I have to go; I’m being pulled over.”

So I said, “OK,” and I hung up.  That’s when I called Carl Swensson, who I had met before.  I knew he was going to be in the area.  He pulled over and took video of the traffic stop.  He told me that the officers actually were approaching him and driving around him as he was taking the video, and he felt intimidated.

THE POST & EMAIL:  I remember receiving a call from Carl after Darren was stopped.  How long did you spend talking to Carl?

MR. LOOMAN:  About 15-20 minutes.  By the time I pulled off the same exit, they had just wrapped up their discussion and released Darren.  He had been sitting there for a few minutes and called me back and said, “They cut me loose and had no problem with me.”  At the time, he knew his rights; he knew he was allowed to carry; he told them that he had weapons.  They asked him to secure those weapons in another part of the vehicle, and he did that, and they basically let him proceed.

THE POST & EMAIL:  We know for a fact that he drove to Madisonville.

MR. LOOMAN:  I know he did, because I followed him there.

THE POST & EMAIL:  So at that point, you caught up to him.  Did you literally follow him into Madisonville?

MR. LOOMAN:  Yes.  Not only did I follow him, but there were at least two police cars following me.  I told Darren, “Observe that speed limit, do not swerve; go straight there.”  So I followed him until there was a left turn into Madisonville.  I forget the name of the road.  At point he pulled over.  Then he and the guy who was with him got out, and I got out.  Then Darren said, “I want my flags.”  He had “Don’t Tread on Me” flags, and he had just gotten done putting “Oathkeepers” all over his truck in vinyl yellow lettering; it was a beautiful truck.  He wanted to set it off with some flags.  So we took three-quarter-inch conduit to make it easy to put them up and down.  It was more for show.

We eased into Madisonville and Darren parked his truck on the corner in a parking space near Donna’s Old Towne Cafe.  So he had it displayed out there.  People saw the truck; they loved it; they wanted pictures of him beside it and of them with him beside it, and Darren was eating it up.  They were all civilians; I don’t think anybody was posing as a civilian but actually was law enforcement.  I’ve been to a lot of rallies and done a lot of public speaking, and I think I can tell the difference now.

THE POST & EMAIL:  What happened from the moment Darren exited his truck to the moment he left Madisonville?

MR. LOOMAN:  I had parked my vehicle, which had an Oathkeepers logo on it, and then he and I went into the cafe, as we were running late.  There were other supporters of Walt there saying that the hearing was either almost over or over, I’m not sure which.  Because we were running late, we just kind-of hung out there.  Carl was there, and I said, “He almost got arrested just coming in to town,” and we talked about how overwhelming the security was.

After being ten years in the Marine Corps and going to numerous events, I can say that they way overstepped.

THE POST & EMAIL:  Why do you think there was such a large police presence?

MR. LOOMAN:  Walt is very much a political activist, and my personal opinion is that he touched a nerve in the good old boys’ system when he became refocused on what was happening locally.  When he did that, he started rooting out dirt.

THE POST & EMAIL:  How many law enforcement people would you say were there?

MR. LOOMAN:  Counting the ones in the helicopters, I’d say about 60.

THE POST & EMAIL:  Did they seem to be in pursuit of someone?

MR. LOOMAN:  No, ma’am.

THE POST & EMAIL:  What were they doing there?

MR. LOOMAN:  There were SUVs parked around the main courthouse.  A couple of helicopters were flying over; there were guards at the courthouse and two at the main door of the courthouse.  There was a lot of traffic, and a lot of police were cruising around.  The Sons of Liberty was represented there; Oathkeepers was represented there by Darren and me.  I also saw two individuals in woodland pattern who were unshaven, kind-of scruffy-looking, who for all I know could have been cops or militia.  My first impression was, “These cops need to watch that guy,” or “These cops need to watch this guy.” They were walking around with a “don’t-see-me” attitude which was very obvious.  But I didn’t see anybody with weapons.

I was seeing just the cops, who were strategically-placed in case something happened at the main courthouse.  I still don’t know where Walt’s hearing was or how many cops were there.  The cops were all over where we were, which was a logical location for a hit. That’s where there was a lot presence, and I saw the two helicopters which were different models and marked differently.  What I saw there was, in my opinion, people waiting in case something were to happen and they were there as a backup force to react in case something happened at the hearing building.  A lot of them were in SUVs.  There were a couple of cops inside the cafe.  There was one officer that a local identified as a jailer, and he actually rubbed up against Darren Huff with an attitude, and Darren just kind-of blew him off.

THE POST & EMAIL:  Would you characterize the jailer as looking for trouble?


THE POST & EMAIL: But Darren let it go?

MR. LOOMAN:  Yes, he let it roll off his back.  He was reliving what happened when he was stopped, talking about Oathkeepers and a little bit of religion.  So he was kind-of a showman at that stage.

THE POST & EMAIL:  When you said the two scruffy-looking men could have been “militia,” what does that mean?

MR. LOOMAN:  They appeared to be militia, but for all I know, they could have been cops.  As a Marine and one who is used to wearing the uniform, their uniforms were unkempt.  If anything, I’d say they were “wash-’n’-wear” militia.

Militias have been given a negative connotation since the Oklahoma City bombing.  To this day, in my opinion, it’s another way of saying “racist” to strike fear in the hearts of some uninformed people.  Obviously, they weren’t there to start an incident, and they weren’t in large numbers. They weren’t marching in and brandishing weapons, but they may have been there to support Walt and civil rights.  I know a lot of militia, a lot of Oathkeepers, a lot of Sons of Liberty, and they are very honorable people who don’t want to start anything.  But if a fight is started, they won’t back off, either.  The two I saw, if they were militia, were just walking around the neighborhood in support of Darren in case something happened.

THE POST & EMAIL:  How long were you in the cafe?

MR. LOOMAN:  At least a couple of hours.  As a joke, I said, “Let’s go buy ‘em biscuits.”  So we bought biscuits at the cafe, put them in a bag, and tried to hand them to what looked like federal agents kitty-corner across the street, but they refused them.  So we took the bag and handed them to the guards and the local boys at the courthouse.  They look like they eat well.  They grabbed ‘em up and took ‘em inside.  It was my way of trying to calm things down.  They made sure they got a good look at me, and I wanted to get a good look at them, and I wanted to give them the proper body language so they would know we weren’t a threat.  They could see that none of us were packing concealed; none of us had our weapons on us.

THE POST & EMAIL:  After the two hours, did everybody decide to break and go home?

MR. LOOMAN:  Walt was released, and he came over and met with us at the cafe.  After talking to him and the crowd was leaving, Darren and I decided that we needed to move on. We had actually gotten a call from someone that Stewart Rhodes, the head of Oathkeepers, was going to be in Knoxville.  So I said, “Let’s go to Knoxville and meet Stewart Rhodes.”  He’s the one who founded Oathkeepers.  The president of the Tennessee Oathkeepers, who was also a board member, was going to be there; he was also a Marine – a Marine sniper.

THE POST & EMAIL:  Were they going to be speaking to a group that night?

MR. LOOMAN:  They were actually having an Oathkeepers meeting that night.  Stewart happened to be in town visiting the president of the Tennessee chapter, and they caught wind of what was going on down there, because we had corresponded back and forth.  Stewart, Rand, Darren and I met in the parking lot in back of the Cracker Barrel restaurant before the meeting.  He had the misconception that our being involved in Madisonville might embarrass him in some way or create a flash point.  At the same time, the day before, the group was gathering in support of an armed rally on the Virginia border, next to DC.  Stewart Rhodes and the Oathkeepers have been under attack from the Southern Poverty Law Center [SPLC] for years.

THE POST & EMAIL:  I’ve seen that on their website.

MR. LOOMAN:  So they’re always doing damage control, trying not to embarrass themselves.  He was worried that the name would get out, that some Oathkeepers were involved in the situation with Walt, and that it would embarrass them if things went south.

THE POST & EMAIL:  But nothing happened?

MR. LOOMAN:  No.  Even the Sons of Liberty who were there – one of them said, “If I had known it was going to this stupid, I would have pulled my weapon out and put it on my side.”  But nothing happened; there were no weapons presented.  I can’t say it enough, to be honest with you.  I was confused about this whole thing…I thought Darren was arrested on April 30 for what was happening on April 30.

THE POST & EMAIL:  The affidavit says nothing about the 30th; I have a hard copy here.  It says that he drove to Madisonville on April 20, 2010 with the intent to cause a civil disturbance with his firearms. District Attorney General R. Steven Bebb is quoted as having said, “It was the tensest day we ever had.”

MR. LOOMAN:  They created a scenario which made them tense and overstepped their budget.  I’m going to use an analogy:  I’m home and it’s 3:00 a.m., and my wife isn’t home yet.  There are two things that would go through my mind:  either she’s cheating on me, or she’s been in a wreck.  And I would be wound up like a banjo string when she pulls up in the driveway and I find out that it was just a flat.

That’s what they did to themselves; there was no intent.  Darren popped off because he’s a showman.  I told this to the FBI.  He is all talk.  He’s a Navy veteran who may or may not be impressed with Marines.  I told them, “You don’t have to worry about Darren.  He is harmless unless he’s been trained by somebody – and he has not been trained by anybody.”  Darren’s primary focus is to get the Word of God out.  People always fear the conversation about the Word of God.

THE POST & EMAIL:  Do you have any idea what gave Monroe County the idea that they had to call such a heavy police presence that day?

MR. LOOMAN:  I’m going to be honest:  I think Darren popped off at the mouth.  He’s a showman; I can’t reiterate that enough.

THE POST & EMAIL:  When do you think he might have said something that would have caused concern?

MR. LOOMAN:  From what the agents told me – and I kind-of rolled my eyes and said to myself, “What an idiot” – that he had made a statement in a bank to a friend of his that ended up not being such a good friend, that he was intending, with help, to go up and perform the citizens’ arrests, and he had warrants in hand, that Walt Fitzpatrick had not been able to perform.

So that’s why on the night before he got a visit from his FBI friend – he had one FBI friend – and the reason I know that that guy showed up was his wife was in a panic and sent me the guy’s number and said, “You need to talk to this guy.  My husband isn’t a bad guy,” and she gave me his number.  Then I put his number on the internet and said, “This is happening; this is the FBI agent’s number,” and I made him famous.  The reason I know that is that when I had my visit from the FBI, they said, “Here’s our number; do not put it on the internet.  Do we have your word?” and I said, “I will not put it on the internet.  You don’t want to be famous like that guy, do you?” (laughs)

THE POST & EMAIL:  Did Darren describe the FBI agent’s visit to you at all?

MR. LOOMAN: We talked on the phone after he got the visit, and I told him, “Don’t worry about it; just chill out; they’re just checking you out, and they’re well within their duties to do so.”  Then we talked about it over the next few days, because after I got my visit, I had to tell him what I said.  So, yes, we discussed it.  Keep in mind:  the whole time, I was trying to do two things:  I was trying to calm Darren down a little bit, and he knows this, because I told him he needed to back up and readjust how you present yourself. At the same time, I was trying to recruit Darren because he’s a very good speaker, very eloquent; he can get his point across if he is focused on one topic.

THE POST & EMAIL:  What were you trying to get him to be a spokesman for?

MR. LOOMAN:  I was trying to get him to be a spokesman for Oathkeepers.  He was good at it.  With a shave, he would have definitely impressed a lot of people at a lot of speaking engagements.  He would have been a poster boy for Oathkeepers if he had taken guidance on how he should present himself.  For any speaking engagement I get stuck with, I always get out the things I do that I think are important:  taking care of family and getting to know your neighbors, working from the neighborhood out for protection.  There’s nobody out here who can guarantee the position of being the one riding George Washington’s horse.  You shouldn’t be looking for notoriety; you shouldn’t be looking for grandeur; you should be trying to protect what’s home.  If you end up stuck as an elected politician, you consider it an honor, or if you end up being the general in a revolution, you consider it an honor, or if you end up being the guy who jumps on a hand grenade to save his platoon’s life, it should be an honor.  But Darren seemed to be in pursuit of notoriety, and I think that’s mostly what got him in trouble.  It wasn’t his skill set; it wasn’t that he wasn’t abiding by the law, because when the cops told him, “Please put his stuff away and lock it up,” he did it immediately.  He told me to do the same with mine; I had two weapons in my vehicle.  Out of courtesy, not because it was unlawful, I secured my weapons and I did not carry.

THE POST & EMAIL:  And you were not arrested.

MR. LOOMAN:  I wasn’t arrested.  Marines are a little better trained than Navy, and we know our skill set.  Locking a weapon up, you know that you need to secure your skill.

THE POST & EMAIL:  Are you accustomed to carrying all the time?

MR. LOOMAN:  Yes, I’m always carrying.  My wife carries; I carry; most of my neighborhood carries; most of my county carries, just as a carpenter would carry a hammer.

THE POST & EMAIL:  Did the FBI interview you before April 20 or after?

MR. LOOMAN:  It was a few days after but before Darren’s arrest.

THE POST & EMAIL:  [Which was April 30.]

MR. LOOMAN:  I have the agent’s name.  My sheriff wouldn’t let them come to my house, so we met at a local truck stop and they ate.  They asked me if I perceived Darren as a threat and they wanted to know if he was a member of the militia, and he was; he was a chaplain in the militia here in Georgia.  They wanted to know his background, how we met; they wanted to know if I knew anything about his training.  With a lot of the questions, they wanted to know my opinion of Darren:  “Do you think Darren would do this or that?  Does Darren have a propensity for violence?” – those kinds of things.

One guy – I’ll call him “Mike” – was the older gentleman who was playing “good cop” and throwing out those questions, and the younger one – I’ll call him “College Boy,” was the one taking all the notes.  They sat there and ate.  I didn’t eat; I sat there and drank some sweet tea.  Mike told me about his roles; he said he had cancer.  They went through a series of questions, and I knew where they were going.  They were trying to get me to say that Darren was a nut-bag and was going to shoot people.  They gently guided me through questions, and I never gave them an indication that that would be the case.

THE POST & EMAIL:  And was that because you did not believe that he would?

MR. LOOMAN:  I don’t think he had it in him, to be honest with you.  If Darren was sitting in the house and somebody came in his house, he would not hesitate to eliminate that threat. But honestly, I think the only thing he’s aggressive about is trying to recruit for God.  I say this because he’s been over at my house, and I said, “Dude, you’re preaching to the choir,” because he was trying to talk my wife into a version of Christianity she was already a member of.

THE POST & EMAIL:  So he likes to talk.

MR. LOOMAN:  He loves to talk, and he’s very structured.  He doesn’t realize that he’s talking to somebody who is a Christian, who believes in God, because all the time he’s so focused on recruiting.

THE POST & EMAIL:  Perhaps he feels that that’s his mission.

MR. LOOMAN:  I honestly think that is the perfect way of saying it.  It’s probably his calling, and wherever he’s at, he’s going to find  an audience.

THE POST & EMAIL:  At that point, Darren was not arrested.  Did you get the idea that they already suspected him of having committed a crime?

MR. LOOMAN:  No.  I got the,e idea that they were focused on that he was going to commit a crime and they wanted some indication that that was going to happen.

THE POST & EMAIL:  Were you surprised when you heard that Darren Huff had been arrested?

MR. LOOMAN:  Part of me was and part of me wasn’t.  Part of me was surprised because I knew Darren to be of good character, but the other part of me wasn’t because Darren has a tendency to pop off at the mouth and say things that just are not true.  I’m not saying Darren was lying; I’m saying that Darren was thinking that there was a possibility that he or someone would be able to complete a mission that Walt had started.  That actually came from Darren.  Darren and I had a number of discussions, and I was all the time trying to pull the reins back on this, saying, “Walt’s got it under control.  He knows what he’s doing.  Obviously he does; he has paperwork that speaks volumes about his ability to figure out this legal system; he was an officer in the Navy and a very honorable person.  Even Stewart Rhodes can be critical on only one point:  that some sort of paper that he should have filed to assure that the citizen’s arrest was performed correctly and that Walt overlooked.  So there was one little loophole that Walt missed, in Stewart Rhodes’s opinion.

But I was constantly pulling Darren back, and even Walt sent out an email saying, “Stand down. I’ve got it under control.”  But all the time, Darren was saying, “We’re going to finish this.  We’re going to complete these citizens’ arrests.”  I used Athens, TN as an example, when the World War II vets came back.  I said, “You have to let the neighborhood take care of the neighborhood.  If there’s corruption, you identify it and bring it out, but the community that actually lives there has to act on it.”

But he did want to, all the time, finish the citizens’ arrests.  I think when he saw Walt get arrested, he was a little traumatized and he wanted to finish the arrests, and I was pulling him back.


THE POST & EMAIL:  Did Darren ever mention bringing firearms with the purpose of completing the citizens’ arrests or doing anything violent?

MR. LOOMAN:  No, ma’am.

THE POST & EMAIL:  Did you attend Darren’s federal trial in October 2011?

MR. LOOMAN:  No, ma’am, because I wasn’t invited.  I fully expected to have a subpoena served.  As a matter of fact, a close friend of mine who is also an activist named John Bigham was served, and he testified.  This is not a small circle; this is a big circle.  We happened to interact in a way that has put everybody together.  John was served, and he testified, and he got a little aggressive on the stand, which I’m sure did not go over well from what he told me.

But I fully expected to be there.  Think about it:  I had already been to the event and was there on April 20.  I haven’t brought this up, but about five days before, I went up there with Darren.  We did a video interview with Walt where Walt started talking and there was a lot of traffic going through; it’s a really good video.  Then we went up on April 20, and you always want to know what is going on.  I fully expected to be there testifying because I could have answered questions such as “Did Darren sneak out the window?” to which I would have said, “Well, Darren is kind-of big, and the window is kind-of small.”

THE POST & EMAIL:  Did you and Darren leave town together?

MR. LOOMAN:  Yes.  We weren’t in the same vehicle; I was 20-30 feet behind him in my vehicle, and then we went to Knoxville.

THE POST & EMAIL:  Did you ever hear Darren say the words “take over the courthouse?”

MR. LOOMAN:  No.  To add to that, there is no way, based on what I have read on the internet or been provided by Walt Fitzpatrick, that that officer who swore out the affidavit who said he witnessed Darren at that building is telling the truth, because he was with me.  The officer is lying and in my opinion, is an oath-breaker.

THE POST & EMAIL:  He’s an FBI agent named Mark van Balen, and he said that his statements were second-hand and gleaned from unnamed public officials.  He also stated that “at least a dozen individuals” were walking around the courthouse armed, but he doesn’t name any of them, either.

MR. LOOMAN:  The only armed individuals who were concealing and in plain sight with weapons were law enforcement.  Even the militia guys I spoke of earlier, I looked, and I looked hard, had no concealed bulges in their uniforms.

THE POST & EMAIL:  Did those two men ever resurface before you left Madisonville?

MR. LOOMAN:  No, and I’ve been to 20 speaking engagements across seven or eight states and have not seen them there.  As time goes on, it makes me wonder if they were just dressed-up agents trying to look like the public’s vision of a militia.  If they want to know what a militia guy looks like, then the NSA, the FBI, and the Department of Homeland Security need to hire me and I’ll teach ‘em. (laughs)

The militia members I know are decked out; they all have a presence; most of them have prior service; some of them are current.  Some of them just want to be patriotic.  For the most part, they have a military presence about them that Walt smells; I smell; even Darren will smell or can sense.  Those guys almost looked like homeless guys – wash-n-wear – they weren’t kept.  It’s the difference between the Santa Claus at J.C. Penney’s and the real Santa Claus.

THE POST & EMAIL:  Do you remember when you heard that Darren was convicted?

MR. LOOMAN:  It was the day he was convicted.

THE POST & EMAIL:  Have you heard from Darren at all since he’s been in prison?

MR. LOOMAN:  No, ma’am.  My opinion is that Darren is falsely accused.  I think the officers blatantly lied to create an event so that they would have something to point at and say, “Look, this is how bad the conservatives are.”  You know how many Tea Party events there are; there’s one going on right now.  There isn’t going to be any violence or litter unless the other side comes unglued.  But they needed a poster child to convict Darren; that’s my opinion.

I’ll tell you this:  Darren was convicted of a thought crime that a Marine was holding him back on.  And even if I wasn’t holding him back, I don’t think he would have been volatile.  I don’t think he would have done anything other than look for Walt’s guidance.  If Walt had said, “Step back, sailor,” he would have stepped back.

Editor’s Notes:  Looman told The Post & Email that Huff was not a “Sovereign Citizen” because he paid taxes, had operated a business with a license, carried a driver’s license and registered his vehicles according to the law prior to his incarceration.  “True “Sovereigns” don’t do those things,” Looman said.

Carl Swensson, who was present in Madisonville on April 20 and a witness for the prosecution at Huff’s trial told The Post & Email:

Prosecuting attorney Will Mackey [sic]…appeared extremely ineffective…as he, time after time, attempted to show that those in attendance on April 20th were wild eyed, crazy conspiracy theorists…

However, this case is no laughing matter as it will set precedence for future “Thought Crimes” prosecutions.

Darren Huff: Obama’s Political Prisoner pb

Posted By Sharon Rondeau On Friday, June 21, 2013 @ 10:11 AM In National | 2 Comments


by Sharon Rondeau

Darren Wesley Huff was convicted of planning to engage in a civil disturbance with firearms on October 18, 2011. Despite an FBI agent’s affidavit stating that Huff was outside the courthouse on April 20, 2010, the government never presented photos or video of the alleged event and lied to a federal grand jury in order to obtain indictments against him.

(Jun. 21, 2013) — For more than three years, The Post & Email has reported on corruption in eastern Tennessee as exposed by Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III, following his filing of a criminal complaint for treason against Barack Hussein Obama on March 17, 2009.

The accusation of treason stemmed from Obama’s approval of the dispatching of U.S. Army troops into Samson, AL to perform civilian police duties after a shooting, in violation of the Posse Comitatus Act.  The Army Inspector General affirmed several months later that the law had, in fact, been violated.

Fitzpatrick first took the complaint to the U.S. District Court in Washington, DC and then to his local grand jury in Monroe County, TN.  After several months of delay, the foreman refused to allow the grand jury to review it.  During that time, Fitzpatrick discovered that the foreman had occupied the post for nearly 28 years in violation of state law.

On April 1, 2010, after having approached every possible local, state and federal official about the foreman’s illegal occupation of the post to ask for assistance, Fitzpatrick attempted to carry out a citizen’s arrest of the foreman.  Instead, however, Judge Carroll Lee Ross ordered Fitzpatrick arrested, and he spent five days in jail.  Two months later, the Monroe County grand jury indicted Fitzpatrick on “riot,” “intimidation,” and other charges.  The acting grand jury foreman who signed the indictments had served a previous term on a Tennessee jury, which also violated the law.

The Tennessee General Assembly is aware of the entrenched grand jury foremen but has taken no definitive action to rein in the rogue judges who appoint them year after year, sometimes for decades.  The Monroe County Sheriff’s Department; detectives; local judiciary, including court personnel; and town officials have been known unequivocally to lie and break the law.

An assignment hearing for Fitzpatrick was scheduled for April 20, 2010.  After hearing of Fitzpatrick’s arrest the heavy-handed and corrupt practices of the local government, concerned citizens from several states, some from considerable distances, traveled to Madisonville to observe the hearing.  One of those was Darren Huff, who lived in Georgia.  As a matter of course, he brought his legally-owned firearms with him and traveled with a passenger that morning.

Most of those who arrived to observe the hearing were not allowed to enter the courtroom, having been turned away by sheriffs’ deputies armed with assault weapons at the door.  On that morning, more than 100 FBI and TBI agents, local police, county sheriffs’ deputies and Tennessee Highway Patrolmen were positioned at entrances and exits to Madisonville as well as around the courthouse, including a sniper team on the roof and a SWAT team with bomb-sniffing dogs.  The media and public were told that a “takeover” of the courthouse had been planned and thwarted by the presence of the lawmen, but in reality, no such plot had ever been formulated.

Huff had been visited on the evening of April 19 by the FBI and explained to them why he planned to travel to Madisonville the next day.  The agents did not tell Huff not to go.

William L. Bryan, founder of “The Fogbow,” an Obama-supporter site, said online that he was responsible for getting “more than 100 cops ready for Cdr. Walt Fitzpatrick, when he showed up on April 20 with a group of armed men who thought they’d take over the Monroe County courthouse.”  But there were no “armed men,” and the hearing lasted only a few minutes without incident.  There were journalists present in Madisonville that day, but their television footage did not indicate that anyone had been apprehended, arrested, or cited for carrying a firearm near the courthouse.  There were no arrests.

To date, the government has produced no video footage or photographs of anyone committing a crime in Madisonville on April 20, 2010, despite the presence of multiple pole cameras placed in strategic places by Monroe County jail inmates the day before.

A man identifying himself as aWhite House attorney” was associated with The Fogbow in September 2010 and possibly much longer.  After the IRS’s targeting of “conservative” groups which had applied for non-profit status became public several weeks ago, ABC News reported that “there are people very close to this president that not only knew what the IRS was doing, but authorized it.”

Significantly prior to the exposure of corruption within numerous departments run by the Executive Branch of the federal government this spring, Fitzpatrick had stated that the plan to frame Huff and him “goes right into the White House.”

The Post & Email submitted a FOIA request in March 2012 to obtain documentation from the FBI on the large officer deployment of April 20, 2010 in Madisonville but was refused after an initial search reportedly turned up no responsive documents.  Two subsequent appeals were denied on the basis of “privacy.”

On April 30, 2010 ten days after Fitzpatrick’s hearing in Madisonville, Darren Huff was arrested on two federal firearms charges stemming from an affidavit signed by FBI Special Agent Mark van Balen on April 26, 2010.  In the affidavit, Van Balen states, “On April 20, 2010, your affiant was present in a Command Post in Madisonville, TN, where he was informed by law enforcement officers who were reporting that HUFF and several individuals were in the possession of openly displayed and concealed firearms and were at the time present outside the Madison [sic] County General Sessions Court located in the Beecher Witt Government Building.  HUFF and numerous others had also been observed gathering at restaurants and other locations near the Madison [sic] County Courthouse.  Some of these persons gathered outside the Courthouse appeared to be conducting surveillance on law enforcement officers, their vehicles, and police observation posts, as well as the entrances to the court building.”

[Editor’s Note:  Madison County, TN is in western Tennessee, while Monroe County, in which Madisonville is located, is in southeastern Tennessee on the North Carolina border.]


However, according to eyewitness William R. Looman, who was in Darren Huff’s company from the time he entered Madisonville to the time they left together, Huff was never present at the R. Beecher Witt building.  Looman’s account that no civilian was seen carrying a gun, concealed or openly, agrees with sworn affidavits from other eyewitnesses that day and refutes Van Balen’s statement on page 8 which reads, “Your affiant knows that on April 20, 2010, there were over a dozen armed members of this loose knit group who had assembled with the stated intent to effect the citizens arrest warrants that had been issued by FITZPATRICK and/or take over the courthouse if it was deemed necessary.”

In August 2012, three of the officials who had testified against Huff were named by The Chattanooga Times Free Press as under investigation by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI), Tennessee Attorney General’s office, and the Office of the State Comptroller.  The Times Free Press ran a six-day series exposing allegations of misconduct on the part of Tenth Judicial District Attorney General R. Steven Bebb, which included accusations of grand jury influence by a prosecutor in Bebb’s office who also happened to pursue a charge against Fitzpatrick last year.

After the attorney general declared that Bebb’s and others’ conduct did not amount to criminal wrongdoing, members of the Tennessee legislature took up the probe upon the demand of citizens who were not satisfied with the state’s investigation.

Two eyewitnesses in Madisonville on April 20, 2010 told The Post & Email afterward that they observed officers taking photographs of the license plates of those who had traveled to attend the hearing.  One eyewitness said that when she stopped to refuel her car and purchase some coffee on the trip home from Madisonville, she believed she was being followed based on odd behavior and remarks exhibited by a stranger.  She also thought it unusual that she and her husband were audited by the IRS for the second time in several years and was told thatabout half” of those who had attended Fitzpatrick’s hearing were also audited by the IRS afterward.

On June 6, The Washington Post began to publish information provided by former NSA contract employee Edward Snowden, who revealed that the NSA under Obama conducts data-mining of virtually, if not all, American citizens when the NSA’s stated mission is to gather information from foreign countries to prevent attacks on the United States.

In October 2011, Huff was acquitted on one charge with a hung jury on the other, after which Judge Thomas Varlan ordered them to resume deliberations and “try again.”  A “guilty” finding was then produced on the charge of “transporting firearms across state lines with the intent to cause a civil disorder.”  Huff was sentenced in May of last year to four years in federal prison plus two years’ probation.

Despite Obama’s claimed public support of the Second Amendment, his regime has made considerable effort to change federal firearms practices by issuing “executive actions,” thereby circumventing Congress.

The office of U.S. Attorney William C. Killian of the Eastern District of Tennessee prosecuted Huff.  Killian was nominated by Obama in 2010 and was the keynote speaker at the opening of a controversial mosque in Chattanooga, TN last August.

On June 4, 2013, Killian spoke at an event focused on “civil rights” of Muslims in Manchester, TN after having told the press that anyone posting derogatory comments or photos about Islam could be subject to federal jurisdiction.”  His presentation to the Muslim group was roundly criticized and heavily protested by local Tea Party members and blogger/author Pamela Geller, who has written extensively on what she perceives to be the dangers of Islam in America and to the world.  The Tea Partiers booed Killian and Knoxville FBI Director Kenneth Moore, who delivered their remarks haltingly between the protesters’ shouts of disapproval.

The event earlier this month is not the first time Killian has spoken about Muslims’ civil rights.

Following Huff’s sentencing, Killian’s website proclaimed:

U.S. Attorney William C. Killian for Tennessee’s Eastern District


KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – On Tuesday, October 25, 2011, Darren Wesley Huff, 41, of Dallas, Georgia, was found guilty of transporting firearms across state lines with the intent to cause a civil disorder by taking over a Monroe County, Tenn., courthouse and executing “citizens arrest warrants.” Huff faces a maximum possible punishment of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine. As a convicted felon Huff will also be prohibited from possessing a firearm. Sentencing is scheduled for February 29, 2012, before the Honorable Thomas Varlan, U.S. District Judge.

The “citizens arrest warrants” were directed at numerous local, state and federal public officials, including sheriffs, police chiefs and United States President Barack Obama. The “citizens arrest warrants” Huff attempted to execute listed the public officials as “Declared Domestic Enemies” and cited them for treason. Huff traveled from his residence in Dallas, Georgia, on April 20, 2010, to Madisonville, Tenn., with the stated intent of “taking over” the courthouse in Monroe County, and arresting the public officials for treason. The treasonous acts Huff alleged stemmed primarily from the refusal of the Monroe County grand jury to indict President Obama, who Huff claimed was not the legitimate President of the United States. On the day of the offense, Huff carried in his vehicle a .45 caliber handgun and an AK-47 with ammunition. During a traffic stop by at Tennessee State Trooper on his way to Madisonville, Huff told the trooper, “I’ve got my .45 because ain’t no government official gonna go peacefully.”

U.S. Attorney William C. Killian 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. “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, ” said U.S. Attorney Bill Killian.

Assistant U.S. Attorneys Jeff Theodore and Will Mackie represented the United States.

A week following Huff’s sentencing, an FBI agent stated on a radio program, “This case is monumental to the FBI because it will set precedent for case law in future domestic terrorism cases throughout the United States.”

Unbeknownst to the public, beginning in 2009, Obama’s FBI had been instructed to “target” military veterans by way of programs entitled “Operation Vigilant Eagle” and “Sovereign Citizen.”  Huff and Fitzpatrick were both identified as “Sovereign Citizens” in a law enforcement training program circulated nationally during the summer of 2011, just prior to Huff’s federal trial.  The FBI states on its website thatSovereigns” could include those who quote from the Bible, the U.S. Constitution, and U.S. Supreme Court cases.

In April, an Army trainer in Pennsylvania was found to be teaching his students thatChristians,” and “Catholics” could be considered “religious extremists.”  Christians in the military have been told they cannot discuss their faith with others under the threat of court-martial.  In Northern Ireland on Monday, Obama told an audience that “segregated” Catholic and Protestant schools have “discouraged cooperation” and caused division among people.  After promising the Catholic church that his health care bill would not force them to provide coverage for items they deemed immoral, Obama broke his pledge and is now attempting to force religious institutions to cover abortions and abortifacients or face hefty fines.

During the 2008 campaign, Obama made a statement about “bitter” people who “cling to guns or religion” with “antipathy towards others” out of a feeling of “betrayal by government.”  Obama promised “an unprecedented level of openness in government” but has produced no documentation on himself except forgeriesHis regime is currently embroiled in numerous corruption “scandals” involving intimidation tactics and subpoenas of reporters’ phone call and email records without their knowledge.

On June 19, 2013, The Post & Email interviewed Bill Looman, a former Marine of ten years, who was with Huff on April 20, 2010 in Madisonville from the time he followed Huff into Madisonville through that evening, when both men traveled to Knoxville for an Oathkeepers event.

In late 2011, Looman was interviewed by a local television station, Channel 11, because of a sign he placed on the back of his truck which said, “Company Policy: We are not hiring until Obama is gone.”  At the time, Channel 11 reported that “someone, and he [Looman] thinks he knows who it was, reported him to the FBI as a threat to national security. He said the accusation filtered its way through the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security and finally the Secret Service. Agents interviewed him.  The Secret Service left here, they were in a good mood and laughing,” Looman said. “I got the feeling they thought it was kind of ridiculous, and a waste of their time.

Fitzpatrick also received a visit from the Secret Service after lodging the treason complaint with the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee, F. Russell Dedrick, Killian’s predecessor, at the end of which one of the agents told Fitzpatrick privately, “We can’t arrest him [Obama], you know.”

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) considers WorldNetDaily Editor Joseph Farah, Center for Security Policy founder Frank Gaffney Jr., Pastor Chuck Baldwin, and “anti-government ‘Patriot’ groupsto be “extremists.”  The SPLC has been an adviser to the Obama regime, and specifically, the Department of Homeland Security, which in its April 7, 2009 report stated that “returning veterans” could fall prey to “radicalization.”  The SPLC deplores those who it perceives are “anti-immigrant,” “Sovereign Citizens,” “extremist,” members of “hate groups,” and “domestic terrorists,” the majority of whom are law-abiding citizens.

The SPLC’s theme of “extremist” and the 2009 DHS report contain similar language in describing “right-wing domestic terrorists” being tied to “the election of an African-American president.”  The SPLC considers “anti-immigrant sentiment” to be “a hate crime.”

Looman told The Post & Email that he attended the hearing in Madisonville because he was acquainted with Huff, who had told him about the the citizen’s arrest on April 1.  “We weren’t close friends at the time, but when I saw the videos going viral, it caught my interest and I wanted to help Walt however I could,” Looman said.  “Neither Darren nor I knew Walt prior to the citizen’s arrest and the videos.”  Looman was not present at the citizen’s arrest on April 1, 2010 but followed Huff into Madisonville on April 20, 2010, spending the entire day and evening with him.

In Looman’s sworn affidavit, he stated that he was “always within eyesight of Darren Huff” and that they spent nearly the entire time in Madisonville at Donna’s Olde Town Cafe, not at the courthouse.  Therefore, Huff was not situated where the government placed him as the perpetrator of a crime.

On several occasions, Fitzpatrick has requested an opportunity to appear in front of a federal grand jury in Chattanooga or Knoxville to discuss the exculpatory evidence in Huff’s case but has been denied by U.S. Attorney William C. Killian, most recently on June 14, 2013.  “The grand jury is being used as a tool against us; it’s being used to destroy our republican form of government.  It’s the oversight function our founders gave us to stop tyrannical government,” Fitzpatrick said.  “The government was able to convict Darren Huff because agents of the government lied to the grand jury.  People who could report the truth to a grand jury are being prevented from doing so.  The grand jury no longer operates as it was supposed to by the Fifth Amendment.”

Our interview with Looman on the events of April 20, 2010 in Madisonville, Tennessee will immediately follow this report (SEE FOLLOW-ON POSTING ABOVE).

A Special Report on the Case of Darren Wesley Huff 

“No one knows the meaning of innocence except those who are!”



by Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III

Edited by Sharon Rondeau – The Post & Email (link)



The federal arrest, prosecution and conviction of Mr. Darren Huff was a successful disinformation operation carried out by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in hand-to-glove cooperation working with their “law enforcement partners” (Link #1) (Link #2) (Link #3)

The mission of the DISOP was to render an obscure and heinous “thought-crime” law actionable as part of the creation of a new government offensive against Citizens’ fighting crime in government. 

FBI Special Agent Scott Johnson said, “This case is monumental to the FBI because it will set precedent for case law in future DOMESTIC TERRORISM CASES throughout the United States!

So anyone who even THINKS about standing up to federal or local government outlawry is this day considered an EXTREME DOMESTIC TERRORIST!

Having realized breathtaking success in appropriating and neutralizing federal and community grand juries everywhere in the nation, the goal of this FBI DISOP was to steal away an individual’s authority conduct a Citizens’ arrest.

In this case purported to be one of “domestic terrorism” carried out by “extremist militiamen,” elsewhere characterized as “Sovereign Citizens” in the FBI’s pejorative, there were no extremists, there were no “extreme militiamen,” no Sovereign Citizens, there was no “plot,” there was no planning, no threat stream, and no criminal conduct.

On 20 April 2010, in the city of Madisonville, Tennessee, there were no guns except for the guns the cops carried. And there were a lot of guns in Madisonville that day!

Law enforcement officials (LEOs) everywhere in East Tennessee were placed on notice regarding the corruption in Monroe County (Madisonville the county seat) and throughout the region going back to 2009.

LEOs were put on notice regarding the necessity, the authority and the intent to carry out a series of Citizens’ arrests on 8 March 2010. We asked for their assistance.

Instead, all we heard was the cricket laugh-track.

When questioned, Darren Huff reaffirmed his intent to carry out the lawful exercise of Citizens’ arrest.

Darren told FBI Special Agent Chuck Reed that if there were any problems, to give Darren a call.

Reed never called.

Darren drove to Madisonville.

Then LEO lying began.

Exploiting the press like the big-man-on-campus exploits the raging hormone adoration of nearby teen-age girls, the FBI and other LEOs played the press for all they could.

The FBI played us all!

The FBI planted a story working the criminal syndicate that’s this day splashed all over the front pages of local and regional newspapers, reports that when gathered together are book-length,

Success in their lying to the press, LEOs were emboldened to lie in court.

Now caught in their foolish allegiance to the government criminal adventures, press outlets of every description are the three monkeys on the fence: Hear no Evil; See no Evil; Speak no Evil.

The FBI and other law enforcement agencies are deflecting questions away like animals in a horse stable swatting at flies.

Afraid of what they might step in, and overwhelmed by the aroma, the press—until just recently—refused to put them to the question.

Well, we’ve only just begun!

In the winter of 2009 moving into the spring of 2010 federal agents and state and local law enforcement described Citizens standing up for their Constitution in the fight against a mindboggling government criminal industry as holding an “EXTREME POLITICAL BELIEF!”

So now that’s it’s out in the open, reported using barrels of ink, whatta we gonna call it today?


This report is submitted for a number of reasons.

First: To secure Mr. Darren Wesley Huff’s immediate release from federal prison.

Next: Accept this writing as a public criminal complaint aimed at seeing to it that the people who locked Darren up as an innocent man take Darren’s place in his cell and fill up several more.

Next: As an object lesson regarding the dictatorial oppression and totalitarian actions being visited on us all by high and low governments alike, functioning within OBAMA’s criminal industry.

Next:  To get this report into the hands of state and federal grand juries.

Additional motivations are discussed at the end of this work.


This case began when Sergeant of Marines Timothy Joseph Harrington and I crafted and advanced a criminal complaint naming Barack Hussein Obama in commission of Treason. (Link)

Repeated attempts were made to advance the Obama treason complaint to a number of federal grand juries. All were repulsed.

In September 2009 the treason complaint was brought before a four-member panel of the Monroe County grand jury.

While expending maximum effort to bring the treason complaint before the full 13-members of the local, county grand jury it was disclosed that the jury foreman—Mr. Gary D. Pettway—was holding his foremanship illegally.

Eventually we’ve come to discover Pettway stood as foreman in front of 56 different county grand juries over the course of 28 years consecutively.

Federal, state and local law enforcement officials refused to remove Mr. Pettway from his career post, leaving in place Pettway’s obstruction of the criminal complaint for treason.

An assistant district attorney named James H. Stutts stood shoulder-to- shoulder with Pettway in blocking the complaint.

Meanwhile, much more had been discovered regarding the corruption in Monroe County.

The situation deteriorated to the point where Citizen’s arrest was the only peaceful recourse left to me by way of removing the Pettway-Stutts obstructions.

Notice of necessity, authority and intent to carry out a series of imminent Citizen’s arrests was delivered to local law enforcement officials on Monday, 8 March 2010. The notice included a request for local law enforcement guidance and participation.

The written notice went ignored.

Mr. Pettway and others were subsequently placed under Citizen’s arrest during the scheduled assembly of the Monroe County grand jury on the first Thursday in April 2010 in the brick and mortar County Courthouse.

A judge not present in the Courthouse counter attacked and ordered my arrest for misdemeanor charges of riot, disorderly conduct and disrupting a meeting. (Link)

Darren Huff had operated a video camera and captured footage of the Citizen’s arrest inside the courthouse.  I had never met Darren prior to April 1 and had no contact with him afterward.

I was locked up and manhandled in the Monroe County Jail (dungeon) for five days and over Easter.

Judge J. Reed Dixon finally released me on 6 April.

As a condition of my bond, Dixon ordered I show up for a psychological examination in Knoxville on Friday, 16 April, and to appear in his court for a preliminary hearing set for Tuesday, 20 April 2010.

Dixon ordered the psychological evaluation to determine my competency to stand trial and to determine my mental condition on 1 April 2010, the day of the Citizen’s arrests.

Recognizing the assigned clinical psychologist as a law enforcement official no different than any sheriff or policeman, I arrived for my appointment and had him read me my rights.

He did.

Then I walked out the door.

News reporters Sharon Rondeau and J.B. Williams watched closely and reported carefully.

The news spread over the Internet and by word of mouth regarding the rumblings and expansive government corruption in Monroe County Tennessee.

As the date of my preliminary hearing approached, righteous outrage and public support grew.

Word reached Mr. Darren Huff in his Georgia home. And support grew.

Darren learned that the county grand jury foreman had acted as foreman for 27 consecutive years.

Darren was aware of other dimensions of the official banditry.

Darren, with others in support, was concerned about what this meant regarding our country and our Constitution.

In the context of Obama’s treason at the national level, Darren was aware that I was being assaulted and brutalized for bringing a newly-discovered local criminal industry to public attention in our own back yards.

On Tuesday, 20 April 2010, in a continuing effort to fight back against and further expose government tyranny, Darren drove to Madisonville, Tennessee to attend my court hearing.

Darren came to act as a court watcher and to stand in peaceful assembly with other folks as upset about government outlawry as he and I were.

In simple terms, Darren was coming to Madisonville, Tennessee to protect me and other Americans from a tyrannical and dictatorial local government operation.

Darren signaled his purpose speaking with others in his community.

Darren wanted people in his hometown to take a hard look at what was occurring in Monroe County as an example of what they were sure to find, to one degree or another, in their own neighborhoods.

By calling attention to the emerging news of the cancerous corruption in Tennessee, chillingly exampled by the government takeover of the Monroe County grand jury, it was hoped that folks in their own locales would be inspired to take a first look, a hard look into the scope and operation of their own local governments, (Link) and to especially take a hard look at government as it related to the scope and operation of their own community grand juries.

On 20 April 2010, in a continuing expression of the people’s power of Citizen’s arrest, Darren and I were simply and peacefully doing what could be done to fight government corruption, and with that, to start the process of taking back our grand juries back.

Others traveled independently to Madisonville that day for the same reasons.

In turn, state and federal government sycophants, who to this day still run roughshod over state and federal grand juries, criminalized the Citizen’s arrest and turned the peaceful exercises of people seeking remedy and redress into gun crimes and the crimes of riot, aggravated kidnapping, aggravated assault, and disorderly conduct.

What we shall review here is the violently tyrannical government retaliation Darren Huff and others have experienced as government officials of every stripe tried to stop us from finding out more of their corrupt activities and  hold them accountable.

This report is about Darren Huff for sure.

It’s also about folks who stood up for America and blew the whistle loudly!


Tuesday, 6 April – Tuesday, 26 April 2010

Unknown to anyone at the time, William Little Bryan was involved is some sort of intrigue that alerted state and federal law enforcement officials that I was part of a group threatening to take over the city of Madisonville and the courthouse(s) in that city.

William Little Bryan a,k.a. “P.J Foggy

William Bryan is also known as William B. Given and goes by a number of aliases. (Link)

Thursday, 15 April 2010

Darren went to his bank, the Chase Manhattan in Hiram, Georgia. Darren reportedly engaged in conversation with the bank’s manager, Robert Shane Longmire, and teller Erica Dupree, with all three standing together. (LINK)

Longmire and Dupree reported their conversation with Darren to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The two bankers told FBI agents that Darren said he was traveling to Madisonville, Tennessee on 20 April 2010 “with the Georgia militia along with eight or nine other militia groups to “take over the city.”

Monday, 19 April 2010

During the day, the FBI, working with their “law enforcement partners,” made preparations in expectation of Darren’s trip to Madisonville.

Monroe County Sheriff Bill Bivens assigned inmates from the County Jail (dungeon) to set up FBI pole cameras in town.

The FBI placed banks, schools, and government employees throughout the nearby area on alert to close down or skip work on Tuesday.

Tennessee State Highway patrolmen were assigned to the 10th Judicial District Drug and Violent Crime Task Force for planned operations the following day.

Acting on information allegedly received from the Chase bankers, FBI Special Agent Chuck Reed drove to Darren’s home on Monday night, April 19, to officially interview Darren.

Two Paulding County Sheriffs escorted S/A Reed (Link)

S/A Reed showed up on Darren’s doorstep wanting to know about what Darren was going to do.

More about this interview and the bankers’ involvement is found below, as the bankers and S/A Reed testified at Darren’s trial.

Tuesday, 20 April 2010

On Tuesday morning, 20 April 2010, Mr. Darren Huff drove from Dallas, Georgia toward Madisonville, Tennessee to attend and witness my preliminary assignment hearing in the General Sessions Court in Monroe County, Tennessee.

Riding with Darren was a young 19-year old man named Michael DeSilva. Michael was a friend of the family and part of Darren’s Bible study group.

Tennessee Highway Patrolman Michael Wilson was up early that Tuesday morning and on the road with Darren.

When Tennessee State Trooper Michael Wilson left his residence that morning he said,


“I felt sick to my stomach not knowing what might happen.” (Link)


Wilson was one of the Highway Patrol troopers deployed as part of the Tennessee 10th Judicial District Drug and Violent Crimes Task Force. (Link)

The Traffic Stop on New Highway 68 in Sweetwater, Tennessee Tuesday, 20 April 2010

Trooper Wilson pulled Darren over on 20 April 2010. Wilson’s cruiser is parked directly behind Darren’s truck in film footage recording that 20 April 2010 felony stop.

(Dash cam video links #1 & #2)

(You Tube link)

(You Tube link#2)

(WBIR video footage capturing events on Thursday, 1 April and Tuesday, 20 April 2010)

The officers claimed that Darren had run through a stop sign and was following the vehicle ahead of him too closely, claims which Darren and an eyewitness refute.

Darren declined a search of his vehicle requested by the Tennessee Highway Patrol because the officers did not have a search warrant.  One of the officers suggested that Darren lock his firearms in the toolbox in the back of his truck upon arrival in Madisonville.  Instead, Darren locked them in the toolbox in the presence of the officer at the traffic stop.  He was allowed to proceed into Madisonville.

An eyewitness who had traveled from out-of-state to observe the proceedings stated that upon Darren’s arrival in town, he led a small group in prayer before approaching the courthouse to attend my hearing.

In the City of Madisonville, Tennessee 20 April 2010

The Monroe County Sheriff’s Department S.W.A.T. was deployed.

SWAT teams from 6 (six) surrounding Tennessee Counties deployed to Madisonville, Tennessee on this day.

A total of 7 (seven) S.W.A.T. were in the field in Madisonville.

Many S.W.A.T. sniper teams were seen in windows and on roofs.

Uniformed and plain-clothes LEOs and sheriffs were on the ground like ants at a picnic.

The Tennessee State Highway Patrol in force set up checkpoints on roads leading into and out of Madisonville.

A number of canine units roamed Madisonville streets.

The FBI had alerted local banks to shut down.

Two helicopters flew in umbrella coverage.

Local schools were locked down.

The presiding judge that day—J. Reed Dixon—was under Tennessee Highway Patrol armed escort and driven to within feet of the entrance to the trailer park courthouse.

State Highway Patrol, Sheriffs’ and City police cruisers of every description ran up and down the streets of Madisonville.

Cost to the community here was in excess of $450,000.00 (nearly half a million dollars). This is believed an extremely conservative estimate.

Federal Agents were in Madisonville on 20 April 2010.

  While local news reports were issued stating that several people had been seen carrying guns near the courthouse, no arrests were made and such individuals were never identified or arrested. 

While Darren Huff and I have been characterized as members of “right-wing militia groups” plotting to “take over the courthouse,” there was no contact between Darren and me prior to the 20 April 2010 assignment hearing.  I did not know who would be coming, nor did I expect the turnout of folks from out-of-town and out-of state who came.

Darren Huff and many others traveling from out of the area were not permitted to observe my hearing, and several went to a nearby restaurant to have lunch, including Darren.  Afterward, Darren traveled home uneventfully.

However, on April 30, 2010, Darren Huff was arrested on two federal firearms charges, jailed over the weekend, and interrogated by federal agents for six hours.

Eventually released on bond, he was tracked with an ankle bracelet and experienced severe economic hardship.  He insisted that he was innocent of any crime and repelled a plea deal, choosing instead to go to trial.

“Mom…why are we standing out here in a parking lot in the rain?”

At some point after Tuesday, 20 April 2010, and prior to Darren’s trial in October 2011, Madisonville Chief of Police Greg Breeden officially interviewed Chase Manhattan Bank Teller Erica Dupree.

Breeden and Dupree both testified at Darren’s trial.

Dupree gave testimony during the case-in-chief.

Breeden testified during the sentencing phase.

A witness talking to another witness before a trial is a prosecutable offense.

Breeden’s crime is aggravated by the fact it was Breeden who approached Dupree under color of authority, representing himself as an investigator in the case.

The FBI was the lead-investigating agency. (Link #1) (Link #2) (Link #3)

DARREN’S TRIAL (22 September, 18 – 25 October 2011)

Darren faced two gun charges during his October 2011 trial:

CHARGE 1: Transporting a firearm in furtherance of a civil disorder (18 U.S.C. § 231(a)(2));


CHARGE 2: Using a firearm in relation to a felony crime of violence (18 U.S.C. § 924(c)(1)(A)).

The statute for CHARGE 1 reads:

 “Whoever transports or manufactures for transportation in commerce any firearm, or explosive or incendiary device, knowing or having reason to know or intending that the same will be used unlawfully in furtherance of a civil disorder” is guilty of this crime.

The statute for CHARGE 2 reads:



(A) Except to the extent that a greater minimum sentence is otherwise provided by this subsection or by any other provision of law, any person who, during and in relation to any crime of violence or drug trafficking crime (including a crime of violence or drug trafficking crime that provides for an enhanced punishment if committed by the use of a deadly or dangerous weapon or device) for which the person may be prosecuted in a court of the United States, uses or carries a firearm, or who, in furtherance of any such crime, possesses a firearm, shall, in addition to the punishment provided for such crime of violence or drug trafficking crime

(i) be sentenced to a term of imprisonment of not less than 5 years;

(ii) if the firearm is brandished, be sentenced to a term of imprisonment of not less than 7 years; and

(iii) if the firearm is discharged, be sentenced to a term of imprisonment of not less than 10 years.


Assistant U.S. Attorneys Jeff Theodore and William Mackie prosecuted Darren. Theodore and Mackie worked under William C. Killian, U.S. Attorney for Tennessee’s Eastern District.

It was the United States’ position in charging Darren that:

(1) Citizen’s arrest in Tennessee State constituted a violent crime, an act of domestic terrorism, an act of aggravated kidnapping, an act of aggravated assault,

(2) Darren intended to carry out a Citizen’s arrest in Tennessee State while armed,

(3) Darren was a domestic terrorist, an extreme militiaman

(4) Darren plotted together with other domestic terrorists and extreme militia members to “take over” courthouses in Madisonville, Tennessee, and carry out citizens’ arrests,

(5) Darren joined with domestic terrorists in Madisonville, Tennessee to carry out the plot,

(6) And that Darren actually used a gun in carrying out an act of domestic terrorism.

Prosecutors maintain Darren committed the crime described by CHARGE 1 the moment Darren crossed from Georgia into Tennessee. (Link)

U.S. Attorney William C. Killian, his two assistants Theodore and Mackie, FBI agents Mark A. Van Balen, Scott Johnson and Chuck reed maintains a citizen’s arrest conducted in Tennessee state meets the threshold for the crimes of riot, civil disorder, aggravated assault and aggravated kidnapping, although it is legal by state statute. Prosecutors Theodore and Mackie maintained that “intent to unlawfully arrest government officials would constitute confining them unlawfully, substantially interfering with their liberty.” (Link)

Repeating for emphasis: A Citizens’ arrest in the State of Tennessee is legal.


Wednesday 22 September 2011

U.S. Magistrate Judge Bruce Guyton presided over this preliminary hearing in Darren’s case.

Jonathon Moffat was Darren’s assigned defense counsel. Darren dismissed Moffat days later.

Michael Wilson, a Tennessee Highway Patrolman who had pulled Darren over on 20 April 2010, testified this day for the prosecution.

Wilson’s cruiser is parked directly behind Darren’s truck in film footage recording of that 20 April 2010 felony stop.

Wilson said he was deployed as part of the Tennessee 10th Judicial District Drug and Violent Crimes Task Force. (Link)

Twenty-seven (27) days later, testifying at Darren’s trial on 19 October, 2011, Wilson said,


“When I left I that day, I felt sick to my stomach not knowing what might happen.” (Link)


At the 22 September 2011 preliminary hearing, Wilson denied knowing about FBI S/A Chuck Reed’s interview with Darren the night before Wilson stopped Darren on New Hwy. 68 in Sweetwater, TN.  In that 19 April 2010 interview with Reed, Darren told Reed that he would be traveling from Georgia to Tennessee carrying his legally-owned and registered firearms. (Link)

Trooper Wilson said under oath that when Wilson pulled Darren over, Wilson didn’t know anything about Darren’s FBI interview the night before. Wilson said he didn’t know Darren had announced his travel plans to FBI S/A Reed 

Darren’s black truck is captured in pictures all over the Internet. It was tricked out with decals and huge artwork. The words “Oath Keepers” were decaled on the truck’s rear window. And there was a decal celebrating militias (you know, those pesky “well-regulated” militias our Founding Fathers championed in the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution).

While “feeling sick to his stomach, not knowing what might happen,” Trooper Wilson said he just happened upon Darren’s truck serendipitously, a chance encounter while driving to Madisonville.

Wilson admitted to profiling Darren’s truck.

No doubt Wilson had been trained to profile vehicles bearing markings and bumper stickers such as those found on Darren’s truck.

Wilson testified, “This vehicle [Darren’s truck] had suspicious indications on the vehicle. This vehicle caught my attention [because] the vehicle had a large amount of writing on it.”

Wilson lit up Darren’s truck in a felony stop, with four LEO chase vehicles in trail, because, according to Wilson, Darren had committed a few minor traffic violations.

Darren was held for around two-hours according to one witness on the scene.

The black LEO SUV chase vehicle that pulled up directly behind Trooper Wilson’s cruiser videotaped the stop using a dashboard camera.

According to one press account, “Wilson ultimately issued warning citations for Huff for following too closely to another car and failing to stop at a stop sign.”

“It also netted federal authorities Huff’s own admission that he was headed to help [with others] to take over Madisonville.” (Link)


OPENING ARGUMENTS Tuesday, 18 October 2011 – Day One

The prosecution

Assistant U.S. Attorneys Jeff Theodore and William Mackie represented to Darren’s jury that Darren was a poster child for a “domestic terrorist” bent on mayhem.

The federal prosecutors said Darren drove to Madisonville, Tennessee on Tuesday, 20 April 2010 with a .45 Colt handgun and AK-47 rifle threatening to use force and give up his life if necessary to “take over” the city and the Monroe County Courthouse. (Link)

In this regard, the prosecutors said Darren plotted with and was going to join with other domestic terrorists (militiamen) in Madisonville to carry out their plot.

The Defense

G. Scott Green, Darren’s appointed defense attorney, delivered this first impression to Darren’s jury. “Everyone of you might think [Darren] and his ilk [those other extremists and terrorists as prosecutors depicted] are kooky as all get out.”

Green called Darren a “loudmouth.”

Backtracking a bit, Green feebly offered that Darren was “not the scary guy [prosecutors] have been trying to paint.” (Link)


FBI Special Agent Mark A. Van Balen’s Sworn Affidavit

Federal Bureau of Investigation Special Agent Mark Van Balen’s sworn affidavit was entered into the record.

Prosecutors relied heavily upon Van Balen’s sworn statement. 

CLICK HERE: 26 APRIL 2010 FBI Special Agent MARK A. VAN BALEN’s  SWORN AFFIDAVIT with interlineations

Agent Van Balen reported Darren was interviewed at Darren’s home in Dalton, Georgia on the evening of Monday, 19 April 2010. Van Balen stated that Darren “told the agents that he [Darren] was planning to travel to Madisonville, Tennessee the next day.”  As Van Balen put it, Darren “and others were planning to assist Fitzpatrick in making citizens arrests.”  Van Balen attributes to Darren the statement “that [Darren] and others were planning to assist Fitzpatrick in getting the charges against Fitzpatrick dropped.”

It’s reported that Darren “was not sure how many individuals would be traveling to Madisonville to assist Fitzpatrick” and that, “there would be no violence unless they were provoked into violence.”

Van Balen attributes to Darren the statement that Darren “would be armed with his Colt 45 handgun when he traveled to Madisonville, TN” and that [Darren] would also be carrying his AK-47 rifle in his truck.

According to Van Balen’s written statement, Darren told other law enforcement officers (LEOs) the same thing.

Van Balen told us that he [Van Balen] personally knew that Darren was under constant FBI surveillance from the time Darren left home the next day and all through the rest of that day (Tuesday, 20 April 2010).

Agent Van Balen recorded the time Darren crossed the Georgia/Tennessee state line as approximately 0650 hours local (ET)

Van Balen says he interviewed Lieutenant Donald Williams from Tennessee’s 10th Judicial District Drug and Violent Crimes Task Force over the course of two days, 21 and 22 April 2010. According to Balen, Williams said this:

  • Tennessee Highway Patrol Troopers Michael Wilson and Kelly Smith, with Lt. Don Williams in company, pulled Darren over on the morning of 20 April 2010 for traffic violations.
  • Lt. Williams saw Darren’s .45-hand gun and disarmed Darren for “officer safety reasons.”
  • Williams said that when [Darren] opened the door [of Darren’s truck] Lt. Williams observed two blue .45 pistol magazines in a pouch for which Darren claimed ownership.
  • Williams said Darren declined to relinquish his weapon, but agreed to lock it in his [Darren’s] toolbox later when he approached the Courthouse.
  • Williams said Darren would not consent to the officers searching [Darren’s] truck.
  • Task Force Supervisor Williams took a copy of an Affidavit of Complaint and Citizens’ Arrest Warrant Darren held. These documents were those Walter Fitzpatrick had written, signed, filed and executed on Thursday, 1 April 2010. These documents named 24 federal, state and local officials.
  • Lt. Williams said that once Darren was free to go, Darren engaged LEOs there assembled in a conversation. During that conversation Williams quoted Darren as saying:
  • “…all the members of the group he planned to join in Madisonville (which [Williams] believed included members of a group known as the ‘Oath Keepers’) had a copy of the Complaint and arrest warrants and were going to effect a citizen’s arrest”
  • “they [this group] intended to make physical arrests of various individuals and then turn these officials over to the State Police to place them in jail.”
  • “that their group had their own Grand Jury and Judge.”
  • “that he [Darren] had the constitutional right to bear arms, that he had an AK-47 and ammunition in the tool box of his truck and that he [Darren] had the right to take it out to protect himself.”
  • “that if necessary, they [this group] didn’t have enough people on April 20 to do all they planned to do that day, that they would be back in one to two weeks.
  • Lt. Williams repeated to S/A that Darren said, “that if necessary, they [this group] would come back and have a lot more armed people to take over the Courthouse and effect the arrests.”
  • According to Lt. Williams Darren said “he [Darren] was ready to die for his rights and what he believed in.
  • After his interview with S/A Van Balen on Wednesday, 21 April 2010, and later the same day, Lt. Williams  “recorded a radio broadcast in which [Darren] talked about his traffic stop on April 20, 2010.”  Williams then interviewed with Van Balen the next day, Thursday, 22 April 2010. According to Williams, [Darren] “stated in the broadcast that when he [Darren] had traveled to Madisonville, TN on April 20 he had his AK-47 and ammunition with him.”

It was based upon the statements of Longmire, Dupree, and Williams that FBI S/A Van Balen affirmed Van Balen had:

“…probable cause to believe the [Darren] had both the intent and the means to immediately carry out his [Darren’s] threats of violence to take over the Madisonville, TN courthouse and/or arrest individuals by force based on the FITZPATRICK complaint and “citizens arrest warrants.”

Van Balen wrote that [Darren] had traveled interstate with one or more weapons to accomplish his [Darren’s] planned takeover of a courthouse and/or arrests of persons together with more than three persons.

Speaking on his own behalf, S/A Van Balen wrote under oath that he [Van Balen],

“…was present in a Command Post in Madisonville, TN, where [Van Balen] was informed by law enforcement officers who were reporting that [Darren] and several individuals were in possession of openly displayed and concealed firearms and were at the time” seen at various locations in Madisonville, TN… “Some of these persons,’ Van Balen wrote, “gathered outside the Courthouse appeared to be conducting surveillance on law enforcement officers, their vehicles and police observations posts, as well as entrances to the court building.”

FBI S/A Van Balen asserts that he personally knew on 20 April 2010,

“…there were over a dozen armed members of this loose knit group who had Assembled with the stated intent to effect citizens arrest warrants that had been issued by FITZPATRICK and /Or take over the courthouse if it was deemed necessary.” (Link)

Van Balen wrote that based upon Longmire’s, Dupree’s, and Lt. Williams’ statements, taken together with his own personal knowledge, Van Balen had:

 “…probable cause to believe that [Darren] traveled in interstate commerce from the State of Georgia to the State of Tennessee on April 20, 2010, with the intent to incite riot at Madisonville, TN and that he transported in commerce a firearm knowing or having reason to know or intending the same would be used unlawfully in furtherance of a civil disorder…” (Link)

Van Balen said in his sworn statement that surveillance in [Madisonville] “found Huff and more than a dozen other individuals with openly displayed and concealed firearms outside the courthouse. Some of these persons appeared to be conducting surveillance on law enforcement officers, their vehicles and police observation posts, as well as entrances to the court building.”

Darren asked for permission to travel to Madisonville legally armed. The FBI said it was O.K. Van Balen added in his sworn statement that Darren was traveling with others to Madisonville to help carry out citizens arrests of 24 federal, state and local officials.

The Prosecution: Tuesday, 18 October 2011

Gary Pettway testified that he’d been placed under Citizen’s arrest on 1 April 2011 because Pettway blocked a complaint naming Obama in commission of treason. Pettway was the illegitimate Monroe County Grand Jury foreman from 1982 through 2010.

Shane Longmire testified. Longmire was the Chase Manhattan branch manager in Hiram, Georgia, Darren’s bank. Longmire testified that on 15 April 2010 Darren “came to the bank and said he had an AK-47 and intended to travel to Madisonville, Tennessee to take over the town with militiamen.”

Erica Dupree testified: Dupree was a teller at the Chase Bank. Dupree testified that on 15 April 2010 Darren “came to the bank and said he had an AK-47 and intended to travel to Madisonville, Tennessee to take over the town with militiamen.”

Longmire and Dupree described Darren as a longtime bank customer. (Link)

The Prosecution: Wednesday, 19 October 2011:

Michael Wilson testified. Wilson was the Tennessee Highway Patrol trooper who told the court with tears:

“When I left I that day, I felt sick to my stomach not knowing what might happen.” (Link)


Jamie Satterfield captured Wilson’s quote and emotions in her Knoxville News Sentinel article initially datelined 20 October 2011 at 5:56 a.m.

(Note: That portion of Satterfield’s article regarding Trooper Williams testimony has since been scrubbed from the online report. But screen shots of people quoting Satterfield before her comment was stricken are captured from among the 61 comments Satterfield’s narrative generated before it was scrubbed). Satterfield was otherwise quoted elsewhere on the Internet with the comment.) (Link)

An Associated Press reporter, Lucas L. Johnson, II, is here quoted in an article Johnson published on 25 October 2011 at 7:31 p.m. (ET),

“Huff said in the video that he and others were ready to help carry out the citizen’s arrest Fitzpatrick wanted.” Johnson went further, writing that Darren told police, “I’ve got my .45 because ain’t no government official gonna go peacefully.” (Link)

A Knoxville News Sentinel staff reporter wrote in a piece dated 15 May 2012:

“When a Tennessee Highway Patrol trooper stopped Huff, Huff told the officer, “I’ve got my .45 because ain’t no government official gonna go peacefully.” (Link)

LEOs recorded Darren’s felony stop using a dashboard camera.

The dashboard camera is positioned in an unmarked, black SUV.

Trooper Wilson’s cruiser is depicted in film footage parked directly behind Darren’s truck.

10th Judicial Drug and Violent Crime Task Force Supervisor Donald “Don” Williams testified on Wednesday morning of the trial that he pulled [Darren] over on the morning of 20 April 2010 for a traffic violation as Darren was on his way to Madisonville.

A dashboard camera positioned in an unmarked, black SUV recorded the stop. The black SUV was directly behind the Tennessee Highway Patrol cruiser that was directly behind Darren’s truck. (YouTube link)

In agreement with FBI S/A Van Balen’s sworn statement, Williams told Darren’s jury that just before Darren was to drive off, he started talking about his “intentions of taking over the Monroe County Courthouse and effecting citizens’ arrests.” It was Williams who said Darren handed Williams a copy of the Citizens’ Arrest Warrant.

Williams opined, “It wasn’t a real arrest warrant.”

Williams added, “(Darren and others) had their own grand jury and judge.”

The dashboard camera video was played. It’s reported that Darren said on camera that he and others were ready to help carry out the citizens’ arrests Fitzpatrick wanted.

It’s also reported that Darren is heard on the dashboard video footage as having said, “I’ve got my .45 because ain’t no government official gonna go peacefully.” (Link)

Williams said that Darren had a loaded .45 in a holster on his hip as well as an AK-47 assault rifle and 200 or 300 rounds of ammunition in a toolbox in the bed of Darren’s truck.

Task Force Supervisor Williams told the federal jury he [Williams] didn’t arrest Darren, allowing him to continue his journey into Madisonville, because “he [Darren] had not violated state law.”

Former 10th Judicial Drug and Violent Crime Task Force Supervisor Mike Hall (link) testified after Don Williams. Hall guessed under oath that “the presence of about 70 officers likely discouraged Huff and other out-of-towners carrying guns from getting violent. Hall said, “Police restraint was more important than anything. There was a sense of who is going to fight first. It was very tense.”

FBI Special Agent Charles Reed testified.

S/A Reed told the jury he drove with other LEOs to Darren’s Dallas, Georgia home on Monday evening, 19 April 2010.

S/A Reed said he interviewed Darren at home that night, the night before Darren’s trip to Madisonville.

S/A Reed testified that Darren told Reed that Darren was traveling to Madisonville “to take over the courthouse and make citizens’ arrests of judges and other government officials.” (Link)

S/A Reed said Darren told him that Darren “wanted to help Walter Fitzpatrick, a military retiree who was arrested after he tried to put the local grand jury foreman [Gary Pettway] under citizens’ arrest.”

Darren assured S/A Reed there was going to be no violence. But the FBI followed Darren the next morning, holding him under surveillance.

S/A Reed said Darren wasn’t arrested the night of 19 April 2010 because, as Reed testified, “no crime had been committed.” According to Reed, Darren said, “[I] and others would not resort to violence unless they were provoked. Darren also told S/A Chuck Reed “if there’s a problem, would you call me? Don’t kick in my door at four in the morning. Just call me.”

The Prosecution: Friday, 21 October 2011

Tenth Judicial District Attorney General Robert Steven Bebb testified Friday morning. Bebb said he coordinated around 100 LEOs in Madisonville on 20 April 2010 to deter what Bebb described as “extremists.” Bebb had sniper teams in windows and on roofs. Bebb said “it was the tensest day we ever had…there were a lot of people I didn’t know carrying guns…I saw one man loading a gun in the parking lot near the jail.” (Link)

Bebb testified “The citizen’s arrest warrant that Huff and others were there to support stemmed from the Monroe County grand jury’s refusal to allow Fitzpatrick, a military retiree and government critic, to pursue treason charges against local judges, and other officials” and resident Obama. (Link)

District Attorney Steve Bebb testified that he was the top operations law enforcement officer in Madisonville coordinating about 100 officers. (Link)

Accounts from eyewitnesses report that Bebb’s battalion included S.W.A.T. teams from Monroe County and six nearby counties. LEOs were called in from 100 miles around in every direction. On cross-examination, G. Scott Green, Darren’s appointed defense attorney, asked Bebb about film or photo coverage of the days events in the city of Madisonville. Bebb responded that there was none.

Green shot back: “I can’t fathom how something this monumental—and you’re telling me they didn’t have a single camera there! I submit to you there was nothing to see.” (Link)

I’m told Jim Stutts and Gregg Breeden also testified for the prosecution. Jim Stutts works under Robert Steven Bebb as an assistant district attorney in the Tennessee’s 10th Judicial District. Breeden is the grossly overweight police chief in Madisonville. I have no more details about when or what they testified about.

Prosecutors Jeff Theodore and William Mackie elicited testimony from prosecution witnesses that Darren possessed an “anti-aircraft” gun, and that Darren was a “racist.” Theodore and Mackie called Darren other names. (Link)

The prosecution rested on Friday morning, 21 October 2011.

The Defense: Friday, 21 October 2011

John Bigham testified. I can find no press coverage of Mr. Bigham’s testimony. John was a member of the Georgia militia with Darren. Bigham was not part of the group in Madisonville on 20 April 2010. 

Carl Swenson testified. I can find no press coverage of Mr. Swensson’s testimony.  Carl traveled to Madisonville from Georgia driving his own car. Carl saw Darren get pulled over in Sweetwater. Carl then positioned himself to film the felony stop from a distance.

Jim Renn testified: Jim rode with Carl Swensson. Messrs. Swensson and Renn arrived in Madisonville with Darren.

Cindy Huff testified: Darren’s wife. I find no press coverage of Cindy’s testimony.

Michael William DeSilva testified: Michael was Darren’s passenger on the trip to Madisonville. I don’t find reports of Michael’s testimony in any press account.  

Darren Huff testified. Darren vehemently denies he ever claimed a “takeover” of anything.

About FBI S/A Chuck Reed’s interview with Darren the night before Darren’s trip to Madisonville, Darren said, “I told Reed I ‘intended to go armed with a .45 on my side and an AK-47.’” Darren added “I never made a statement about taking over the courthouse, the city, the state, nothing. I never said anything about taking anything over.”

Darren gave his cell phone number to S/A Reed. Darren asked Reed to call Darren if there were any problems.

Darren even asked for permission to travel to Madisonville legally armed. The FBI tacitly agreed it was okay for Darren to make the trip.

Darren told S/A Reed, “If there’s a problem, would you call me? Don’t kick in my door at four in the morning. Just call me.” Darren told Reed that “he would call the whole thing off if there was a problem.” (Link)

That call never came! (Link)

Darren told the court he and about 15 others traveled (independently) to Madisonville in support of Walter Fitzpatrick who had a hearing that day. (Link)

Darren said “We were going up to protest” the massive government corruption which The Chattanooga Times Free Press is finally reporting now, two years later. 

In August 2012, an investigation was launched by the Tennessee Attorney General, State Comptroller, and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation into allegations of jury-influencing, professional misconduct and misallocation of taxpayer funds on the part of R. Steven Bebb and others under his supervision as well as members of the Tennessee Highway Patrol, at least two of whom testified at Darren Huff’s trial.  (See additional information below)

It was reported to the jury that Darren locked up his handgun with his rifle while stopped in Sweetwater, 14 miles away from Madisonville. Darren said he kept his handgun and rifle locked in the truck bed toolbox for the remainder of that day (20 April).

“Huff told jurors he kept his handgun and assault rifle locked in a toolbox on his truck that day and took no action to seize the courthouse or the town. He noted he was in the midst of a campaign to recruit East Tennessee sheriffs to the cause of combating corruption in Madisonville when, 10 days after his…trip [to Madisonville], he was arrested on the federal charges…” (Link)

Darren told jurors he was looking for East Tennessee sheriffs to take action against the corruption in Monroe County when the FBI arrested him.

During his testimony Darren broke down, saying, “This is the most humiliating thing I have ever been through. My government has called me a potential domestic enemy.”

The defense rested.

Darren’s defense counsel ran through six witnesses in less than one day.

I was waiting to testify, but was not called, as defense attorney G. Scott Green talked Darren out of using me as a witness.

I was in federal custody and in the building wearing my jail “stripes.”  Green was concerned about how Darren’s jury would react to my appearance, and I had been denied access to basic hygiene while incarcerated in the Monroe County jail.

Green made no effort with the feds to allow me to wear civilian clothing and appear in court unshackled.

During trial prosecutors insisted Darren and his “fellow supports were outgunned and outmanned by a slew of law enforcers and the plot, therefore thwarted. His intent, they insisted, is what was at issue in the case.

State and federal LEOs said “Huff and several others ‘were in the possession of openly displayed and concealed firearms’ outside a court building and some appeared to be conducting surveillance on officers.” (Link)

According to an FBI affidavit attributed to FBI agent Mark Van Balen, Huff claimed he and others were going to Madisonville to help carry out citizen’s arrests of 24 federal, state and local officials named in the so-called warrants signed by Fitzpatrick.”

CLOSING ARGUMENTS (Friday, 21 October 2011)

In closing arguments, federal prosecutors described the peaceful assembly as “a frightening standoff between law enforcement and an armed man who vowed to take over [the Courthouse].” (Link)

Attorney Mackie said, “This is a well-established statute that just hasn’t been used that much but fits the circumstances of the events that happened in Madisonville that day.”

Mackie was talking about carrying a firearm in interstate commerce with the intent to use it in a civil disorder (citizens’ arrest) if he has to arrest these people and take over the town. Everybody took it serious because it was serious, and that is a crime.”

Mackie told jurors in his close, “There was a very real and immediate danger of acts of violence. [Darren’s] stated intent was to use (guns ferried across state lines) if he has to arrest these people and take over the town.” Mackie said, “Everybody took it serious because he was serious, and that is a crime.” (Link)

Mackie pleaded with jurors “to consider what could have happened if law enforcement had not had such a show of presence in the town to discourage action by Huff and his militia friends.”

Attorney Theodore said in summary remarks, “It is because of [Darren’s] actions. There are so many people who have extreme political beliefs. It is what he did on April 20 and what his intent was on April 20.”

Theodore said, “The fact [Darren] backed off because they [Darren’s alleged militia team mates] didn’t have the numbers is not a defense.”


Friday, the 21st, Monday the 24th, and Tuesday the 25th of October 2011

The jury received the case late Friday afternoon, then adjourned for the day.

Jury deliberations began on Monday, 24 October 2011. They came back at the end of the day reporting to Judge Varlan they were deadlocked.

Refusing the jury’s position, Varlan called them back to work on Tuesday.  (Link)

It took one hour on Tuesday morning for the jury to come back with a finding of “guilty” on Charge 1, and “not guilty” on Charge 2.


15 May 2012 

Scott Johnson, the FBI case agent, said of Darren that “he thought he was going to ride in from out of town with the guns on his hip and right all the injustices.”

Daniel Dockery is reported to me to have testified against Darren in the sentencing phase of the trial. Dockery was a detective in the Madisonville Police Department.

The jury deliberated about 8 hours on Monday. They came to Judge Varlan deadlocked. Varlan sent ‘em back to the jury room. On Tuesday morning 25 October 2011 they came in with a verdict.


U.S. Attorney for Tennessee’s Eastern District released this statement on Tuesday, 15 May 2012,

“Militia Extremist Sentenced to Four Years in Prison

for Take Over Plot 

“This sentence will send a strong message to those who attempt to take the law into their own hands. 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 take over government buildings.” (Link #1) (Link #2)

A week later on Tuesday, 22 May 2012, the FBI launched this Podcast and Radio press release,

“Militia Extremist Sentenced

Mollie Halpern: The FBI prevents a group of militia extremists from taking the law into their own hands.

I’m Mollie Halpern of the FBI, and this is Gotcha. 

Darren Huff, of Georgia, and his followers wanted to indict President Barack Obama and many other federal, state, and local officials for treason. When a Tennessee County grand jury refused them, they wrote up their own bogus arrest warrants. Case Agent Scott Johnson, of the Knoxville FBI Division, says Huff armed himself with a handgun, an AK-47, hundreds of rounds of ammunition, and headed for the courthouse.

Scott Johnson: He thought he was going to ride in from out of town with the guns on his hips and right all the injustices.

Halpern: When Huff and others arrived, they found the FBI and its law enforcement partners waiting for them. Huff was sentenced to four years in prison for transporting firearms across state lines with the intent to cause a civil disorder. It was the first time this violation was successfully prosecuted.

Johnson: This case is monumental to the FBI because it will set precedent for case law in future domestic terrorism cases throughout the United States.

Halpern: This has been the FBI’s closed case of the week.



Not brought up in Darren’s trial by either side is the self-proclamation of William Littell Bryan, Jr., also known as “P.J. Foggy.”

Bryan is a well-known Obama operative. Working with his associates, Bryan has “engaged in an aggressive campaign to disrupt any and all attempts to pursue legal challenges to Obama’s eligibility, while seeding to ridicule in vile and abusive terms those who dare advance or support publicly such legal efforts.” (Link)

In a 16 June 2011 article, 14 months after 20 April 2010, these two Bryan Internet postings were captured and publicly printed:

“We’re the ones who got more than 100 cops for Cdr. Walt Fitzpatrick when he showed up on April 20 with a group of armed men who thought they’d take over Monroe County.” (Link)

“We’re the ones who got more than 100 cops ready for Cdr. Walt Fitzpatrick when he showed up on April 20 with a group of armed men who thought they’d take over the Monroe County courthouse.” (Link)

Bryan and his criminal cohorts advertised that they had incited the federal and state LEO response we all experienced on 20 April 2010.

Bryan does not itemize the names of those people implied in the use of the personal pronoun “we.”

The dates of these two postings are not known.


We’ve all been played!

Law enforcement officials served up to the liberal left media a story they couldn’t refuse.


Birthers Plan Armed Takeover of Courthouse!


MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, TIME magazine’s Managing Editor Richard Stengel, TIME’s Washington Bureau Chief Michael Duffy and Pulitzer Prize winning investigative correspondent Barton Gellman, Jim Matheny of  NBC’s Knoxville affiliate –WBIR, Pam Sohn of the Chattanooga Times Free Press, Jamie Satterfield, Lance Coleman and Tom Humphrey, from the Knoxville News Sentinel, Bill Poovey and Lucas L. Johnson, II from the AP, Michael Thomason and Tommy Milsaps from the Monroe County Democrat & Advocate, and cowardly staff reporters ashamed to print their names lapped it up like kittens splashing in warm milk.

Then there’s J.J. McNabb, the self-descried expert on “Sovereign Citizens,” and right-wing extremists and militiamen. (Link)

But none of these charlatans ever checked for facts!

Law enforcement officials represented to press lackeys they were acting on actionable intelligence that a “domestic terrorist” episode was in planning and under way when they interdicted to save the day.

Press chuckleheads just bought the spoon-fed and ridiculous notion that the feds and their “law enforcement partners” prevented a gun battle bloodbath from erupting in the streets of Madisonville, Tennessee!


But this is the premise reporters of the day swallowed, worm and all.

WBIR-TV reporter Jim Matheny had a cameraman on the ground in Madisonville that day. There was nothing in the news that night or in the papers the next day about any “takeover” attempt.

In Madisonville, it had been a very quiet and peaceful day.

In the immediate aftermath, Rachael Maddow interviewed retired BATFE S/A James Cavanaugh. (Link)

Cavanaugh is in other places known as “WACO Jim,” a reported perjurer in testimony he gave regarding his participation in the Branch Dividian tragedy in Waco, Texas. (Link)

(Sidebar: The federal siege of the Waco compound began on 28 February 1993. It came to a violent end 51 days later on 19 April. “WACO Jim” Cavanaugh played a central role.)

Cavanaugh is a “go-to guy” for the press anytime they want to build a molehill into a mountain regarding “extremists,” or “Sovereign Citizens.”

In October 2010, Barton Gellman jumped on the bandwagon in his “special investigation” TIME MAGAZINE cover report “Locked & Loaded: The secret world of extreme militias.” Mr. Gellman names both Darren Huff and me as objects of his derision and defamation. (Link)

Links to the fictional reports from the others are spread throughout this work.


The FBI declares Darren Huff, myself, and everyone who drove to Madisonville to support me and fight against government corruption on 20 April 2010 as “Sovereign Citizens:” A code phrase meaning “domestic terrorist.”

OBAMA’s Justice Department/FBI describes these folks as “armed domestic terrorists–SOVEREIGN CITIZENS–No one, I say say again, NO ONE was carrying a gun!


More has come to public attention since the winter of 2009 and spring of 2010.

Beginning on Sunday, 12 August 2012, a regional mainstream newspaper in eastern Tennessee, The Chattanooga Times Free Press, launched a scathing series of articles laying out massive corruption in Tennessee’s 10th Judicial District, which includes Monroe County and the town of Madisonville.

The print narrative ran for six days, front page above the fold, from 12 to 17 August this year. Those reports spawned two editorials and three side stories. Editors allocated approximately 1,844 column inches in newsprint. Taken together with articles published exclusively online, the reportage became a narrative of book length.

Links to the articles are supplied below for ease of reference.

Described in this extraordinary writing is an institutionalized and industrial culture of corruption that is predatory and cannibalistic which Darren Huff and I recognized back in April 2010 and about which average citizens tried to take action.

Government in the 10th District is eating its own citizenry.

The 10th Judicial District comprises four counties: Bradley, McMinn, Monroe and Polk. R. Steve Bebb, the 10th District’s attorney general, is a point target of the Times Free Press exposé.

A partial list of the scoundrels named in the CTFP work includes:

  • Lieutenant Mike Hall – former supervisor to the 10th Judicial District’s Drug and Violent Crime Task Force (DTF). Hall skedaddled in August 2010. (Link)
  •  Lieutenant Donald Williams – former #2 under Hall in the DTF. Williams was promoted to supervisor upon Hall’s escape. Williams holds the DTF top position as of this writing and testified at Darren Huff’s trial.
  • Bill Bivens – Monroe County Sheriff (MCSO) since 2006. Up for reelection in 2014. (Link)
  • Pat Henry – former detective captain under Bill Bivens in the MCSO.

Many law enforcement officers named in the CTFP diatribe are variously accused of ripoffs, shakedowns, courtroom perjury, misspending of taxpayer dollars, tampering and withholding evidence, jury tampering, violating Citizens’ civil rights, and manipulating the justice system.

These ingredients were all baked into Darren Huff’s charade trial.

The former McMinn County grand jury foreman, Joel Riley, working with 10th District ADA Paul D. Rush, are publicly accused of jury tampering in 2010.  Riley and Rush were illicitly attempting to influence the McMinn County grand jury at the same time Gary Pettway was discovered illegally heading the Monroe County grand jury with sidekick, ADA Jim Stutts.

Stutts and Rush both work under R. Steve Bebb, who testified at Darren Huff’s trial.

Bebb is further accused of patronage hires and firings.


Statements Donald Williams attributed to Darren are uncorroborated and unsubstantial.

The United States relied heavily on the theory that Darren planned to join a group of people who were carrying guns intending some type or kind of “civil disorder.”

The case regarding Darren’s “intent” is based solely upon statements made by two bankers and government officials. And those statements are undone by what Darren actually did.

What Bebb left out is this: The Monroe County dungeon is across the street from the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department. So what Bebb said to Darren’s jury is that there were a lot of people I didn’t know carrying guns—all of ‘em cops amongst the 100 cops Bebb was “coordinating,” that day, and that Bebb saw one man in a parking lot next to the Sheriff’s Office loading a gun…most likely a Sheriff’s deputy.

S/A Reed’s statement is uncorroborated!

Now this is the scenario law enforcement officials want the outside world to believe.  

Van Balen swore in his statement that Darren plus “more than a dozen other individuals” were observed outside a Courthouse in Madison “with openly displayed and concealed firearms.” Other LEOs in Madisonville that day reported that “several others” (no number specified) were in the possession of openly displayed and concealed firearms.”

But no one tells us who were carrying guns.

No civilians are known to have been carrying weapons that Tuesday. No one!

Van Balen failed to tell his readers that only LEOs were carrying guns in Madisonville on 20 April 2012.

Consider this as well: No one fact-checked Van Balen’s written sworn statement at that time or since!

Van Balen’s sworn statement was uncorroborated the day he signed it and goes uncorroborated to this moment.


Lying LEOs give up the game.

Trooper Wilson about how and why he pulled Darren over in Sweetwater.

The two top dogs on the Drug Task Force, Mike Hall and Don Williams, both lied. Hall left the Drug Task force under suspicion of being a “pill-billy,” that is, using drugs himself. The CTFP accuses Hall of a great deal more. (Link)

District Attorney Bebb and FBI S/A Van Balen stood together in a command post on 20 April 2010.

Implying it was folks in my support group, Bebb said he saw people he didn’t know carrying guns. Bebb said he spotted one person loading a gun.

Pointing to people in that same group, Van Balen said he had personal knowledge that over a dozen people were carrying guns in plain sight or concealed.

Both men lied.

The only people carrying weapons that day were cops. They carried badges and they carried guns. A lot of guns!

No one—I say again!—No one who drove to support me in Madisonville was carrying a gun on his or her person.

Tennessee State troopers told Darren during the I-75 felony stop he’d be arrested if he decided to proceed into Madisonville (14 miles distant) openly carrying his sidearm.

So Darren locked the gun in his truck bed toolbox. (Link)

No one was arrested.

No LEOs stopped a single person for questioning, as Darren was stopped off the road in Sweetwater some 14 miles distant.

Drug Task Force honcho Don Williams testified in court that no arrests were made in Madisonville, fearing an arrest would spark a running gunfight. (Link)


The local NBC TV affiliate, WBIR, had a cameraman on the ground in Madisonville and captured footage of people peacefully assembled.

FBI pole camera film footage shows the same thing. That footage betrays people who testified against Darren, people who lied, so it’s not been released to the public.

Days after the peaceful assembly in Madisonville, the FBI fanned throughout Tennessee and Georgia to interview people who were in Madisonville on 20 April 2010. It’s suspected LEOs took down vehicle license plate numbers facilitating the FBI showing up at people’s front doors in the next week.

No one the FBI interviewed came up as having carried a gun to Madisonville on April 20th. No one turned out to be a militia member. No one showed any evidence of being anything but a solid U.S. Citizen in good standing.

We’d know the name(s) today of any civilian who was carrying a gun in Madisonville. They would’ve been approached, questioned and made part of an official report.

Didn’t happen!

FBI Special Agent Mike Harrell called me at home on 9 March 2011 to set up an interview with me the next day. I volunteered to come into the Knoxville, Tennessee FBI complex.

Tennessee Highway Patrolman (Senior Trooper) J.C. Parrott and Tennessee Bureau of Investigation S/A Andy Corbitt joined with Special Agent Harrell for the 10 March 2011 interview.  The three were members of the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force.

These three knuckleheads targeted me as a “domestic terrorist.”

Contrariwise, the FBI never approached William “P.J. Foggy,” also known as William Given.

The boastings and self-admitted role William “P.J. Foggy” Bryan were reported to FBI S/A Roxanne West (28 June 2011), and Reanna Day (6 December 2011).

The FBI didn’t follow up.

To this day we do not know if there’s a connection between the Chase bankers and “P.J. Foggy,” all three people attributed as saying there was a “take over plot” of Madisonville being hatched in the days leading up to 20 April 2010.

Two folks in Georgia, one buffoon in North Carolina using the same phrase “take over,” and the FBI doesn’t see the need to investigate a possible connection?


The major point here is that there was NO plot. Darren never spoke the words “take over,” and the people who said he did are liars!

I talked about Gregg Breeden’s interview of banker Erica Dupree above.

What’s that about?

Recall Gregg “jabba-the-hut” Breeden is the Madisonville police chief.  He and Dupree were both witnesses against Darren, not allowed to talk with each other.

Breeden did not play any investigative role in Darren’s case. So what’s he doing interviewing Dupree?

Today there is an outcry demanding folks in the 10th Judicial District “Give Bebb the Boot” regarding the operation of Bebb’s fantastical criminal machine. (Link)


Once Darren became aware of massive government corruption in Monroe County, Tennessee he took a stand against it.

Darren didn’t know that due to statements he had made (some corroborated, some not) the Federal Bureau of Investigation would use and manipulate him as one of many props in a government disinformation operation that would make guys like Hitler and Stalin proud.

Certainly it does OBAMA proud!

The successful mission of the FBI’s DISOP was to make and take America’s first “Minority Report Thought Crime” law operational.

Today Obama’s anointed U.S. Attorney William C. Killian is bragging about how the Obama Justice Department is going to do it again and keep doing it until they’re stopped. (Link #1) (Link #2) (Link #3)


Obama’s Justice Department (FBI) unilaterally rendered Tennessee statutes regarding Citizens’ arrest null and void, thereby denying U.S. Citizens their right to make use of it!

More than that: Obama and his team transformed the laws of Citizen’s arrest into the violent criminal acts of riot, aggravated assault and aggravated kidnapping.

Obama, on his own initiative and outside the legislative and rule-making process, created a new way of making and enforcing federal and state statutes, not constitutionally recognized, which violates current laws and rules governing Citizen’s arrest.

Obama and his criminal assistants prevailed in these activities to include the wrongful prosecution of Darren Huff by deliberately misrepresenting material facts upon which Darren’s case relied.

Memo to U. S. Attorney William C. Killian and his two nefarious assistants, Theodore and Mackie: Citizen’s arrests are legal in the United States. (Link)

In Tennessee, the laws regarding Citizen’s arrest are considered some of the strongest in the nation.

Anything Darren did in furtherance of a lawful act is lawful.

See Tennessee Code Annotated (state statutes) applying to Citizen’s arrest that is available online:

  • 40-7-101: An arrest may be made by a private person,
  • 40-7-103: Grounds for arrest without Warrant,
  • 40-7-109: A private person may arrest another for a public offense committed in the arresting person’s presence, or when the person arrested has committed a felony (although not in the arresting person’s presence), or when a felony has been committed and the arresting person has reasonable cause to believe that the arrested person committed the felony,
  • 40-7-110: A private person may make an arrest for a felony at any time,
  • 40-7-111: Notice of grounds in support of arrest by a private person of another,
  • 40-7-112: Notice of intention to make an arrest – If the person to be arrested has committed a felony, and a private person, after notice of the person’s intent to make the arrest is refused admittance, the arresting person may break open an outer or inner door or window of a dwelling house to make the arrest,
  • 40-7-113: A private person who has arrested another for a public offense shall, without unnecessary delay…deliver the arrested person to an officer.

Specific felony criminal acts, for example, supporting a Citizens’ arrest include:

  • 39-16-402: Official misconduct, and,
  • 39-16-403: Official oppression.

Darren and others knew two years ago what Judy Walton at The Chattanooga Times Free Press is reporting today.

To make Darren’s prosecution possible, the test and criterion which the assistant U.S. attorneys Theodore and Mackie applied in Darren’s case is that Citizen’s arrests in Tennessee State are unlawful.

Judges Guyton and Varlan played right along.

So did G. Scott Green, Darren’s appointed defense attorney. It was Judge Guyton who appointed Green.

Now…how was Darren’s intent manifested? Where did it come from? Well, policemen put words in his mouth. Words Darren did not speak!

The Carl Swensson videos were not shown to the jury. 


Of primary concern is to see to the immediate release of Mr. Darren Huff from federal prison.

This acts as a criminal complaint

A third purpose is to directly connect the explosive government corruption that began to come into public view back in the fall of 2009 to reports just five weeks ago in a local, regional newspaper, The Chattanooga Times Free Press (CTFP). It needs to be brought to public attention how concerned citizen watchdogs were handled and treated compared to how the identical reports of government’s criminal industry are being viewed today.

Another purpose is to revisit the events of 2009-2010 in the context of the CTFP book-length exposé, as it appears the managers and editors of that paper aren’t likely to do so on their own without this encouragement.

Then there is a need to teach the object lesson regarding the dictatorial oppression and totalitarian actions being visited on us all by high and low government as it functions under OBAMA’s criminal industry.

Sharon Rondeau and J.B. Williams have been reporting on the events in East Tennessee from the beginning of this nightmare.

Sharon is the owner and editor of The Post & Email.

J.B. Williams is a freelance writer and co-founder of The U.S. Patriots Union. with Sergeant of Marines Timothy Joseph Harrington.

Articles Sharon and J.B. wrote are linked in this work. Others are easy to find online.

I and others, to include The Post & Email Editor, Sharon Rondeau, are the object of death threats.

Worthy of attention is that the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department is enjoying and nurturing the masquerade that defames Editor Rondeau and myself as “cult” members, “radicals,” and “eccentrics.”

Death threats can be connected not only to Mr. Bryan, but also collectively to deputies in the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department. (Link)

This report is meant to expose those responsible for locking Darren up as having carried out a tremendously successful disinformation operation (DISOP) to protect themselves, working as criminals with their criminal assistants in a massive governmental criminal industry, from We the People exercising our power of Citizen vigilance and oversight and from We the People exercising our Power of Presentment as we find these powers in our state and federal Constitutions.

The narrative discussed herein is intended to be taken up by anyone in the country to present to either a federal or state Grand Jury as they find appropriate.

Darren had become aware of massive government corruption in Monroe County, Tennessee, of which Madisonville is the county seat.

Of primary concern is to see to the immediate release of Mr. Darren Huff from federal prison.

Dictator Carroll L. Ross during a 28 June 2010 arraignment hearing in the Monroe County Courthouse!

Something wicked this way comes (click here)

Tennessee Judges J. Reed Dixon, Amy Armstrong Reedy, Carroll L. Ross and Jon Kerry Blackwood are criminals.

The crimes of J. Reed Dixon, Amy Armstrong Reedy, Carroll L. Ross and Jon Kerry Blackwood are actionable in Tennessee State only by an independent and lawful Grand Jury.

No independent and lawful Grand Juries exist in Tennessee State.

J. Reed Dixon, Amy Armstrong Reedy, Carroll L. Ross and Jon Kerry Blackwood along with other Tennessee State judges and government officials murdered Tennessee’s Grand Juries decades ago.

I have reason to believe it was K(C)athy Pendleton who told me yesterday no Tennessee law enforcement agencies can on their own authority open even a homicide investigation when the murderer is  suspected to be a Tennessee judge.

Special Agent Pendleton works out of the Chattanooga office of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation – Criminal Investigation Division. Yesterday’s phone conversation is recorded and distributed publicly elsewhere.

Tennessee judges like J. Reed Dixon, Amy Armstrong Reedy, Carroll L. Ross and Jon Kerry Blackwood can commit any crime against you or your family they wish from the bench, and walk away cleanly.

I’ll leave it to the readers’ imagination what else judges can do from the bench in an environment wherein there is no law enforcement to stop the judge or to protect you.

People in my Tennessee community are scared to death!

In our human history we’ve come to describe the state of affairs in Tennessee as a Dictatorship. We’ve identified people like Tennessee State judges as Dictators.
