Should Judge Blackwood Be Criminally Prosecuted?

Posted By Sharon Rondeau On Monday, June 30, 2014 @ 1:57 PM In National 

PETITIONING GOVERNMENT NOW A CRIME PUNISHABLE WITH PRISON TIME

by Sharon Rondeau

(Jun. 30, 2014) — 12:40 p.m. EDT – The petition launched at change.org on Sunday calling upon the Tennessee judiciary to cease and desist its illegal arrest, charging and conviction of innocent citizens for attempting to expose government corruption has garnered 55 signatures as of this writing.

The petition specifically demands that Senior Judge Jon Kerry Blackwood vacate the verdict of a jury from last Tuesday which convicted CDR Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III (Ret.) of “aggravated perjury” and “extortion” after attempting to petition the McMinn County grand jury with evidence of crimes committed by the judges, prosecutors and grand jury foremen of Tennessee’s Tenth Judicial District.

One of the signers, Col. Harry Riley (Ret.), is founder of Operation American Spring (OAS) and has called upon numerous federal officials to resign their posts for violations of their oaths to the U.S. Constitution.  In a comment left under his signature on Monday, Riley stated:

Judicial illegal activity has become tyranny in the U.S. What is the matter with “we the people” in Tennessee?? These judges, prosecutors, jury foreman are criminals that should be prosecuted.

Since late 2009, Fitzpatrick has exposed systemic corruption in the Tennessee courts which has been borne out by many other victims and members of the Tennessee House of Representatives and Senate.  In Tennessee, no private citizen can bring evidence or a criminal complaint to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) or the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee, as The Post & Email has recently re-confirmed.

For decades, criminal court judges have been appointing grand jury foremen, who often exert undue influence on the grand jury, which affects whether or not they issue an indictment against an accused.  Last Tuesday, Fitzpatrick’s conviction was issued as a result of of a tainted grand jury which, in January, had been prejudiced by then-McMinn grand jury foreman Jeffrey Cunningham and then voted to indict Fitzpatrick in March.

Blackwood refused to consider that the grand jury’s indictment of Fitzpatrick was affected by Cunningham’s informing of them of Fitzpatrick’s “history” in January and the escorting of the grand jury members out of the courthouse after Fitzpatrick was asked to leave, giving them the impression that he was a dangerous person.

One grand jury said in sworn testimony in a pre-trial hearing in the Fitzpatrick case that she voted to indict because she herself felt “threatened” by Fitzpatrick based on what she had been told.

Blackwood upheld the indictments and the convictions.

Prosecutor A. Wayne Carter claimed that Fitzpatrick lied in petitions he attempted to submit to the grand jury over a period of months and which were blocked by Cunningham, but in sworn testimony last Monday, Cunningham stated that Fitzpatrick made no misstatements.

Fitzpatrick’s attorney, Van Irion, claimed that Fitzpatrick had exercised his constitutional right to petition his government for the redress of grievances under the First Amendment, “to do what the law plainly allows.”

During his closing argument at the trial, Carter objected to Fitzpatrick’s having worn his Navy uniform to the trial, although a congressional statute allows retirees to do so.

The Post & Email launched a second petition at whitehouse.gov here:

http://wh.gov/l6S38

urging that the FBI be tasked with launching a criminal investigation into public corruption in Tennessee, which has been ranked third in corruption in a recent research study.

Since at least 1980, Blackwood has participated in choosing grand jury foremen who have worked for years and sometimes decades in violation of Tennessee code.

The conviction of a citizen without a proper trial is called “attainder.”

Assaults on the First Amendment have increased under the Obama regime to include as targets veterans, homeschoolers, religious freedom groups, Second Amendment advocates, Tea Parties, traditional marriage and pro-life groups.

As a result of Tuesday’s verdict, in Tennessee and the nation as a whole, petitioning the government for redress is now a crime punishable by prison time.  How many are willing to live with that?

A CHRISTIAN CITIZEN, EUGENE WITING’S PREAMBLE

“The Constitution of the United States is dead. 

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

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

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

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

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

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

“Shame on the judges, prosecutors and juries!”

First Amendment Dead in Tennessee pb

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

WHAT DOES THAT MEAN FOR THE REST OF THE COUNTRY?

by Sharon Rondeau

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

How, then, did the jury reach its conclusions?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“NOW THE GLOVES COME OFF”

by Sharon Rondeau

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fitzpatrick further detailed his conversation with Willis:

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

We talked about Jim Miller’s murder.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

We talked about The Fogbow.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

by Sharon Rondeau

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

He continued:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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