(Jul. 29, 2010) — MONROE COUNTY, Tenn. — Christian Citizens against Corruption.

Monroe County Tennessee Sheriff Bill Bivins wasn’t very happy when Christian Citizens against Corruption sent a news release two days ago through a Christian News Wire service implicating him in an attempted murder plot and may connect his office to the recent murder of Monroe County Election Commissioner Chairman, Jim Miller.

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.

Later, CCC workers encountered an employee of the Sweetwater Valley Oil Mart (a BP Station in Tellico Plains) who stated that she had orders from Melinda Bivins not to receive any Christian New Wire releases at that store. Sweetwater Valley Oil denied that a Melinda Bivins worked in their office. Melinda Bivins is a relative of the sheriff.

Mr. Morgan’s father, Scott Morgan, was jailed a little over a month ago for exposing corrupt public officials. Sherriff Bivins retaliated in response to an earlier press release by Daniel Morgan by sending Scott Morgan into a concrete isolation bunker where prisoners are severely punished, tortured, injured and maimed. God performed a miracle according to Scott Morgan, “I prayed and God safely released me back in with the other prisoners unharmed. Prayer had saved my life.”

The CCC asks everyone to pray for Sherriff Bivins.

Every American citizen is endowed with an inherent right and responsibility to hold public officials accountable.

    Thanks Leo! On June 13th, 2008 see CNW Press Release Christian Citizens against Corruption filed formal charges against 19 public officials to most of the members of congress both in the upper and lower houses. A bill of indictment was also sent to all the Tennessee state representatives including Sens. Alexander and Corker for investigation. No response was received. I will send a copy of the above Post & Email article to the above e-mail address. Thank you for the referrals. We believe the truth will set people free and the Post & Email is an excellent example of that principle as awareness precedes change. Thanks for the input Leo. Job Well done Post & Email!
    Mrs. Rondeau replies: Thank you, Mr. Raudenbush.

    I do not understand how one county with a bunch of thugs running the law enforcement operations can continue to be rogues, break the law, trampling citizens’ rights and continue to get away with it.. is there no REAL law, and if not the citizens should probably man up and take care of it themselves..

    The People of Monroe County need to demand that Sens. Alexander and Corker call for an investigation of any involvement by democrat BHO Cohort gov Bredesen in this investigation and the alleged coverup of the murders of the Identity Theft & Voter Fraud Whistleblowers, Katherine Smith and Jim Miller.

    I suggest all concerned Patriots send emails to the following TV and Newspaper reporters in Tennessee.

    Unfortunately I don’t see one bit of difference between the corruption that is happening in Monroe County from that which is happening in the rest of the country, and especially in Washington DC. Sad but true, and if we don’t take a strong stand against such evil “this evil will not cease to happen amongst us”. We obviously deserve that which we condone.
