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

I just learned that oral arguments in Darren Wesley Huff’s case are to be heard before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit on Thursday, 30 January 2014: CASE # 125581 ~ United States v. Darren Wesley Huff. The Courthouse for Darren’s hearing is located in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Darren’s case is presently and singularly the most important case in United States history (CLICK HERE)!

I’m reaching out in an effort to find an attorney who can intervene and intercede on Darren’s cause. The stakes here are epic in that Darren’s case stands to set precedent giving license to future and fruitful federal “thought crime” arrests and prosecutions (CLICK HERE)




(Note: Why Cincinnati, Ohio?  The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th federal district, located in Cincinnati, Ohio, is responsible for appellate review of cases emanating out of Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Tennessee. Darren’s federal trial ran from 18 – 25 October 2011 in Knoxville, Tennessee ~ Judge Thomas A. Varlan presiding)

The appellate “REVIEW” is very narrowly restricted as it was explained to me yesterday afternoon. The court will not hear any newly discovered evidence. The court will only consider Darren’s Record of Trial and briefs that were filed afterwards (more about those filings below).

As things stand, the court will not entertain, for instance, former Sergeant of Marines William Looman’s sworn eye-witness account statement attesting to Darren’s physical presence on 20 April 2010. The court will not hear Sgt. Looman’s  first hand, sworn factual statement that Darren was unarmed.

The court will not entertain proof of perjury as it relates to the testimony of 10th Judicial District Attorney Robert Steven Bebb, the perjury of any of Bebb’s subordinates, or the perjury of Mr. Gary Pettway who testified against Darren as a prosecution witness on behalf of Tennessee State and the federal government representing himself under oath as a “juror” and foreman of the Monroe County Tennessee grand jury.

The court will not hear of any of the uncounted attempts to bring the criminal adventures of Tennessee State and federal officials in their conspiracy against Darren to the attention of both state and federal grand juries such as the MADISONVILLE HOAX or the murder of  JIM MILLER. The court will not hear or read about any of the unceasing, relentless and continuing reports to state and federal law enforcement.

The court will not learn of Tennessee State Assistant Attorney General Kyle Hixson’s 20 September 2013 state filing and and statement against self-interest admitting that grand jury foremen in Tennessee State are not jurors! Had this information been disclosed in 2009 or 2010 Navy Veteran Darren Wesley Huff would not be wasting away in a Texarkana, Texas federal prison during this Christmas season! Nor would have Gary Pettway been passed off as a “real juror” back during Darren’s October 2011 federal hearing.

It’s confirmed that Counselor Gerald Gulley is Darren’s attorney of record. So you better believe the court will not hear of any of Gulley’s obstructions injuring Darren’s case or of the criminal conduct of Darren’s trial attorney, G. Scott Green.

I’m told the court will not hear anything about witnesses who were prepared to testify on Darren’s behalf as to the best of their knowledge during trial in Knoxville, TN between 18 – 25 October 2011, and who G. Scott Green turned away.

The court further will not consider any information as far as is known today regarding connections between Darren’s rigged federal trial, the interference’s and involvements of members of William Bryan’s FOGBOW gang, A SPECIAL REPORT ON THE CASE OF DARREN WESLEY HUFF!or about the MADISONVILLE HOAX, or about connections to the Saturday night, 17 July 2010 mob-style murder of JIM MILLER!


The case manager for Darren’s case is Mr. Brian Crutcher. I spoke with a member of Mr. Crutcher’s case management team late yesterday afternoon.

Information I pass out here is preliminary based upon yesterday’s telephone exchange. It’s also the product of Mr. Huff’s plea for help which also came in over the transom just hours ago.

I’m told Gulley filed a brief on Darren’s behalf on 17 May 2012. The federal government filed a response thereafter.

Copies of these filings may be available off of PACER.

I’ve not seen the briefs. Nor do I know anyone who has.

Gerald Gulley’s Knoxville office closed down last Monday afternoon. It won’t reopen until Monday, 6 January 2014 according to the phone message currently playing (865.934.0754). No email address is available.

Tennessee Grand Juries Co-Opted by Government, Operating Illegally

Posted By Sharon Rondeau On Wednesday, December 18, 2013 @ 8:39 AM In National |


by Sharon Rondeau

(Dec. 18, 2013) — On Tuesday, CDR Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III (Ret.) went to the McMinn County, TN courthouse to submit a criminal complaint naming the grand jury foreman, court clerk, three Tenth Judicial District prosecutors and two criminal court judges as “illegally, individually and judicially selecting installing [sic] people into the grand juries,” thereby wielding undue influence in order to obtain specific outcomes.

Rhonda Cooley is the elected Circuit Court Clerk for McMinn County, and Atty. Jeffrey Cunningham, who is also a local bank official, is the appointed grand jury foreman.

Fitzpatrick had wished to explain to the grand jury that while the state attorney general’s office claims that the foreman is not a juror, but rather, a county employee, state law requires that the foreman must be a juror.  Criminal court rules posted on the website of the Tennessee Administrative Office of the Courts state that “the foreperson shall possess all the qualifications of a juror.”

TCA 40-12-206 mandates that juries comprise 13 jurors and as many as five alternates.  There is no mention in state code of a “foreman” who is injected into the grand jury or trial jury by the action of a judge, although the Tennessee Administrative Office of the Courts maintains that that process is legal.  Local media have reported that “the foreperson is appointed by the judge and doesn’t necessarily have to come from the jury pool.”

the foreperson is appointed by the judge and doesn’t necessarily have to come from the jury pool. – See more at: http://advocateanddemocrat.com/story/21576#sthash.XqNwo0ZV.dpuf

Although the criminal courts in Tennessee have contorted the laws and court rules to allow the judges to choose the grand jury foreman, who often serves for years or decades at the judge’s behest, the District Attorneys General Conference has officially stated that the foreman is to be chosen from among 13 eligible citizens of the county who are selected by automated means.

Earlier this year, the Tennessee Attorney General declined to criminally prosecute District Attorney General R. Steven Bebb, who is named in Fitzpatrick’s current and previous complaints, after allegedly performing an investigation following extensive reportage at The Post & Email and The Chattanooga Times Free Press of Bebb’s alleged misconduct and criminal activity.  The legislature, however, has taken action in an apparent attempt to remove Bebb from his post.

The Tennessee Supreme Court issued an opinion contending that a district attorney general “is answerable to no superior and has virtually unbridled discretion in determining whether to prosecute and for what offense.”  Historically, the Tennessee General Assembly and the judiciary have acted at odds with and in contradiction to one another.  The original 1796 Tennessee constitution contained no judicial branch, although the legislature later created one.  Current General Assembly members are aware of the corruption within the grand juries and criminal courts.

Fitzpatrick’s four-page criminal complaint, dated December 16, 2013, can be read in its entirety here:  17DEC2013 GJCRIMCOM

Monroe County, TN has misrepresented the grand jury foreman as a juror and based criminal charges against Fitzpatrick and Darren Wesley Huff upon that false statement.  On June 3, 2010, then-grand jury foreman Gary Pettway was described as a juror in indictments issued against both men signed by Angela Davis, who acted as foreperson for that day.  Davis was herself serving illegally in a second consecutive term as a juror in violation of TCA 22-2-314.

On Tuesday and three previous occasions on which Fitzpatrick attempted to present criminal evidence to the McMinn County grand jury, the foreman, Jeffrey Cunningham, refused to recuse himself despite his having been named in the respective complaints.  Instead, Cunningham brought the complaint in to the members of the grand jury and presided over them, then conveyed their “conclusion” to Fitzpatrick, as he did on Tuesday.

“This government is completely out of control,” Fitzpatrick said.  “The grand jury is being controlled by the judges who appoint the foreman.  Cunningham should not have been in the room today.  He should have said, ‘I’m named in this complaint; I’m going to step outside and give it to Jack or Sally or whoever…You guys decide for yourselves…’ It’s astounding how serious this is; it’s breathtaking.

“Today was a special day because the report that I was bringing to them wasn’t my report; it was the report of the Attorney General‘s office for the State of Tennessee.  They had a decision to make.  I have very clearly demonstrated to them that Mr. Cunningham is not a juror, and they refused to look into this.  The government is controlling the grand juries, and you cannot bring a complaint against the government because of people like Jeff Cunningham.  It’s not just the foreman; it’s all of them.  This grand jury is not protecting the people of the county,” Fitzpatrick said.

After Cunningham re-emerged from the grand jury room, which is also the office of U.S. Congressman Chuck Fleischmann, he informed Fitzpatrick that the grand jurors would not take action on his complaint and had asked that a deputy escort Fitzpatrick out of the building.

On December 7, 2011, Fitzpatrick observed Judge Amy Armstrong Reedy, who is named in the complaint submitted on Tuesday, peruse slips of paper containing the names of prospective jurors and choosing those she wanted, a fact which was presented to the appeals court on November 20 by Fitzpatrick’s attorney, Van Irion, who is defending him against the charge of “tampering with government records.”

One of the three appeals court judges appeared incredulous when Irion stated that Fitzpatrick had witnessed Reedy hand-picking jurors in open court.  Fitzpatrick describes what Reedy did as “one example of how the system is vulnerable to human agency; picking your grand jury by pre-selecting them and knowing exactly what you’re going to get.”

The Tennessee constitution requires that evidence of a criminal nature be presented to a grand jury before a presentment against the person initiating a charge can be issued.

“This was historic.  This grand jury in east Tennessee was shown unarguable, unassailable, unquestionable evidence that their foreman is not a juror, and they walked away from it, refusing to give their names.  This is the kind of thing that would go into the history books when they used to be reliable.”

Tennessee state law requires that 13 people comprise a grand jury, but only 12 members routinely serve on a grand jury.  Since the foreman is not a juror, but rather, represents the interests of the state, no grand jury in Tennessee can be operating impartially as is required by the Fifth Amendment to the Bill of Rights.

“This is the control that the government exercises over our jury system now.  The jury system is completely unreliable and taken over.  We don’t have any better example of that than what happened today.  This is extraordinary.  The person who was criminally accused, their buddy, the guy they’ve worked with all year, was standing in the room with them.  The conflict here is just overwhelming,” Fitzpatrick told us.

Fitzpatrick has presented evidence to the local FBI in Knoxville as well as the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI), both of which have chosen not to act.

When The Post & Email asked Fitzpatrick if he believed that the grand jurors did not want to know the facts about their proper function and that of the foreman, he responded, “It’s not that they don’t want to know; it’s that they have been told not to act.  ‘Do not do anything at all. You’ve been picked for a special purpose; you are not to act against the government.  Cunningham is your foreman; that’s that; live with it.  If you don’t like it, leave, and we’ll get somebody else.’”

At 6:35 in the following recording, Cunningham states that he was serving as the foreman on Tuesday, despite having been named in the criminal complaint:  17 DEC 2013 FIRST CONTACT WITH CUNNINGHAM

Fitzpatrick said that the inaction of the grand jury on Tuesday “washes over every grand jury that’s had a court-appointed foreman for the last unknown number of decades.  There was no more clear a case than the one that walked in the door today, and they said, ‘We’re not interested.’”

Cunningham did not make copies of the complaint for the grand jurors, but rather, “read it to them” while he stood in the room, where Fitzpatrick was not allowed to enter.  Cunningham also told Fitzpatrick that he “did not appreciate” that Fitzpatrick had accused him of “blocking” criminal complaints from reaching the grand jury.  “His physical presence is an influence; it cannot be argued,” Fitzpatrick said.  “He’s the one who broke the seal on the package, even though it said, ‘Do not open unless you are a grand juror.’  He knew that he was named in the complaint, and he should have said at that point in time, ‘I’m sorry, but I know I can’t be in the room.’”

“This is exactly the function that these foremen have been serving for decades throughout the entire state of Tennessee. This is the reason that the judicial system is so highly successful in bringing in the amounts of money that they have been generating and sending people to jails and prisons for untold years.”

Cunningham did not return Fitzpatrick’s complaint or provide him with a signed statement from the grand jurors.   17 Dec 2013 PET 0838

Cunningham told Fitzpatrick that he “had made that mistake once and wasn’t going to make it again” when he provided Fitzpatrick a copy of the grand jury’s decision not to review his complaint containing their signatures.  Tuesday’s “decision” was said to be “unanimous.”

At slightly past halfway in the following recording, Cunningham refused to return Fitzpatrick’s paperwork and contended that Fitzpatrick’s claims against him were “absolutely false.”  Cunningham then said that “the grand jury would like for him to leave” and asked a deputy sheriff and chaplain to escort Fitzpatrick out of the building.

Have the Perpetrators of Jim Miller’s Murder Been Identified?

“HILTON says to his jail audience that Mr. Miller was killed because of what Mr. Miller knew regarding the obscenely corrupt Monroe County government. HILTON reported that Mr. Miller’s specific information about incumbent Sheriff Bill Bivins (taken together with additional information regarding the massive corruption within the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department)—in days prior to the 2010 County Sheriff’s election—was particularly dangerous to local office holders and other Monroe County officials.”

“At issue is whether or not Blackwood was compromised for in the past having appointed a foreman to the grand jury in Roane County, where Blackwood had presided prior to his formal retirement in 2004. There is no provision in Tennessee state law for a judge to make such an appointment, although the Tennessee Administrative Office of the Courts has admitted that it is done routinely throughout the state, citing the Rules of Criminal Procedure as justification.”

Monroe County TN Corruption Turns Violent

By JB Williams

What started out over a year ago as what seemed to be a simple citizen effort to report government wrong-doing in a Treason case against Barack Obama, filed by Retired Navy Lt. Commander Walter Fitzpatrick III, turned into something unexpected when the Monroe County justice system obstructed justice and turned its evil sights on the Commander.

Since then, Fitzpatrick has been arrested and jailed twice, humiliated by local character assassination, threatened, roughed up and accused of inciting riot, which in Tennessee code can apparently be used against anyone when three or more citizens attempt to address their local public servants in a public place.

Fitzpatrick now stands trial on a host of rigged charges, all at the hands of local corrupt public servants who seem to have a history of such activity, and a growing tendency to become violent when citizens try to make public the level of crime and corruption in that quaint little Tennessee community.

Corruption becomes Deadly

On Saturday July 17, 2010 – Republican Election Commissioner Jim Miller was brutally murdered in a Chicago mob style slaying and set ablaze in the trunk of his car.

Monroe County Sheriff’s Deputy Capt. Kenny Hope was immediately a “person of interest” in the case, but has since been “cleared” by TBI officials.

What does this have to do with the Treason charges filed against Obama in Monroe County? That depends on whether or not Commissioner Miller had seen similar evidence filed with his office concerning election fraud in the 2008 election, and whether or not Miller was about to shine a local light on that or other reports of systemic corruption in Monroe County…

The Violence Continues

As news of local corruption concerning Fitzpatrick spread throughout the community, other local citizens began to come forward with other similar and much more bizarre horror stories with crime family type charges against the local Sheriff Bivins and what is locally referred to as his “henchmen.”

An online Christian News Wire published at story accusing Sheriff Bivins of involvement in the murder “cover-up.”

The following day, locals involved in that report were visited by Bivins “henchmen” as they were leaving an East Tennessee Health Care facility. Chilling events of that day are described in a follow-up Christian News Wire release dated July 30, 2010.

From that report – “Two Christian Citizens against Corruption workers reported attempting to leave a parking lot of an East Tennessee Health Care Facility around 3:00 pm yesterday when a black Ford F-150 pulled up behind them blocking the workers’ vehicle from moving. The car’s driver, Daniel Morgan, identified the driver of the black truck as Travis Jones, a detective of the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department. Wearing no uniform and showing no badge or identification, he angrily ordered the driver and passengers out of the vehicle. Mr. Jones made a holstered gun visible during the ordeal.

Fearing for the safety of his passengers, Mr. Morgan cautioned the passengers in the vehicle from leaving the vehicle as detective Jones was not displaying typical police behavior. According to passengers, Travis Jones was forced to move his truck as an ambulance became impatient with him blocking the road. Mr. Jones left the scene after he observed Mr. Morgan making a cell phone call to state officials, during which he made a police report of the incident to Sergeant Kevin Smith of the Tennessee Highway Patrol.”

With each passing day, more and more local citizens are coming forward with stories of systemic corruption in the Monroe County government that seems to date back years.

Locals report threats from local officials that have caused them great fear in coming forward in the past. But recent events seem to be causing more fear of remaining silent, than fear of retribution.

It All Started with a Treason Case against Obama

Tennessee has some of the strongest citizen Grand Jury and citizen arrest laws in the nation. Yet when Monroe County resident Walter Fitzpatrick attempted to deliver evidence of fraud and treason to his local Grand Jury, he was met with obstruction and corruption that is now spiraling into violent acts of retaliation by the very people sworn to uphold the rule of law in Monroe County.

Clearly, the small town good-ole-boy system is peeved that a local peasant like Fitzpatrick would dare question their authority or challenge their acts of corruption. Yet this is exactly what our nation’s Founding Fathers would have done and would call upon each of us to do, in the preservation of freedom and self-governance.

As an increasing volume of evidence against local officials comes out, those officials seem to be using an increasing level of thuggery in an attempt to silence locals and protect their neat little game.

But small town thugs were in for a rude awakening when Fitzpatrick delivered the news that he would not stand against them alone…

Enter Federal Defense Attorney Steven Pidgeon

Attorney Steven Pidgeon will be handling the Fitzpatrick case in Monroe County and beyond, and he wasted no time filing demands for production of evidence that could very well sink the Monroe County cabal in their own history of corruption and obstruction of justice.

This case has nothing to do with the charges brought against Fitzpatrick in the effort to silence Fitzpatrick on the matter of Obama Treason. The case is much larger than just Monroe County and seems to have brought the kinds of systemic corruption to be found in governments all across the nation into the limelight.

With a national spotlight complete with a federal defense attorney in place, all eyes are on Monroe County public servants and just how far they are willing to go to keep their boot on the neck of the local community.

Monroe County citizens willing to come forward should contact Attorney Steven Pidgeon’s office for further assistance. (425) 605-4774 (tel) – 425)818-5371 (fax)

JAG HUNTER here with Sergeant of Marines Timothy Joseph Harrington:


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


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

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

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

The Jury Laundry is a black-wash.

The Jury Laundry is no Jury at all.

The Jury Laundry used to be called The Grand Jury.

The Monroe County Tennessee Jury Laundry

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

Jury Laundrymen

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Pettway’s Jury term ended on 31 December 2009.

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

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

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

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

Davis and Pettway are co-workers…workmates.

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

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

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

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

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

Note 1: Robert F. Cooper, Jr.–Tennessee’s Attorney General–notified today at 1333 hours. Point of contact is Marie (the receptionist) who refused to take the complaint. She refused also to transfer my call to anyone else. Marie the receptionist tells me Robert Cooper does not hold jurisdiction over the matters before us. Guess Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Special Agent Washington was wrong (I spoke to him in person Wednesday morning, 9 June 2010–Chattanooga office)

Note 2: Incumbent Tennessee Democrat Governor Phil Bredesen first appointed Amy Reedy into her criminal court judgeship back in January 2006 (click here). Bredesen is running for reelection in November this year.
