Monroe County, TN judicial corruption has been proven, but law enforcement has taken no action.

(Feb. 18, 2012) — Darren Huff, who was a co-defendant with Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III on June 28, 2010 at the Monroe County courthouse, has recently been moved from a federal prison in Georgia to a state prison in Tennessee while awaiting his sentencing hearing on February 29 from a federal firearms conviction.

In October 2011, Huff was found guilty of one count of “carrying a firearm in interstate commerce” and acquitted of another federal violation as a result of traveling from his home in Georgia to Madisonville, TN to observe an arraignment hearing for Fitzpatrick.

Fitzpatrick was expected to testify at Huff’s trial but ultimately was not called upon to do so.

Both Huff and Fitzpatrick are veterans of the U.S. Navy.  Fitzpatrick is a retired Lt. Commander, and Huff served in Operation Desert Storm.  Huff and Fitzpatrick have an entry at Wikipedia which begins, “The refusal to accept that Obama is the lawful president has led to acts of civil disobedience that have been criminally prosecuted.”

On April 1, 2010, Fitzpatrick had attempted to carry out a citizen’s arrest of the acting grand jury foreman, Gary D. Pettway, for over-serving his term.  Tennessee state code mandates that a person cannot serve on a jury if he or she has done so within the last 24 months, and the Tennessee Rules of Criminal Procedure, Rule 6, states that “The foreperson shall possess all the qualifications of a juror.”  Pettway had been acting as foreman for 27 consecutive years at the time, although no appointing orders or evidence of his having taken an oath of office could be produced by the court clerk upon request.  The clerk has actually told the local press that “The judge can pick the foreman from wherever they choose” even though there is nothing in the law which states that.  At least one judge has acknowledged that some jurors are used in consecutive terms in Monroe County but taken no steps to correct the deficiency.

A citizen’s arrest is legal in Tennessee, according to Tennessee code.

The Post & Email has been told that the court clerk who was a witness at Fitzpatrick’s June 28, 2010 arraignment where he appeared with Huff also “chose” his trial jury.  Huff’s account of the arraignment states that “the hearings were probably the most unprofessional courtroom proceeding I have ever thought possible.”

Of the case in which he and Huff became co-defendants, Fitzpatrick recently told The Post & Email, “Jim Stutts, the state prosecutor, with the permission of Judge Jon Kerry Blackwood, tied us together, working with the federal government, to show that Darren and I were militaristic, right-wing extremist militiamen coming into Monroe County with bombs – I’ve been called a bomb-thrower in this community – and that did not happen.”

A copy of the alleged transcript from Fitzpatrick’s June 28 hearing appeared on the internet even though Fitzpatrick himself was unable to obtain a copy other than from The Post & Email after we received it on February 2011.  There were differences in the two “versions” of the transcript, and the name of the county where the hearing took place was incorrect.  The internet version was watermarked “Friends of Politijab,” an Obama-friendly website which is no longer active and later was melded into “The Fogbow” in a possible Terms of Service violation.

Huff had also been charged by Monroe County with participating in the “riot” with which Fitzpatrick was charged by using a video-camera on April 1, 2010.  Huff ultimately pleaded “no contest” on December 1, 2010 and did not have to pay a fine.  Fitzpatrick’s trial also took place that day, after which he was convicted of two misdemeanors.  Before the trial began, Fitzpatrick asked the jury if any of them had served on a jury within the last two years, and one of them said he had.  The judge then dismissed the juror.  Handwritten notes of the jury selection were provided to Fitzpatrick on the day of his trial, December 1, 2010, which indicated human intervention rather than jury selection by “automated means.”

In interviews leading up to Huff’s trial which were published at The Post & Email, Huff said that “nothing happened” on April 20, 2010.  The mainstream media had widely labeled Huff a “birther” and accused him of plotting a “courthouse takeover.” Huff has denied any intent to commit violence of any kind, and the courthouse was not “taken over” that day.  Prior to his conviction, Huff had submitted pleadings to the federal court in Knoxville in defense of his Second and Fifth Amendment rights.  His defense attorney, Scott Green, stated during the trial that “there was nothing to see” that day in Madisonville.

An eyewitness agreed with Green, having told The Post & Email that “SWAT teams, snipers, state police, Monroe County Sheriff’s Department cars, unmarked cars, and other law enforcement officials were poised for action when Darren Huff and several others came to the courthouse for the hearing in Madisonville…” and described the heavy police as “costing somebody ‘a lot of money’ which was spent ‘for no reason.’”

Fitzpatrick reported the cost to the community that day as being $450,000.  No arrests were made that day, and Huff was not arrested until ten days afterward.

Was Huff made a scapegoat after the sizable resources and expense on April 20 produced no arrests?

Reports that Fitzpatrick wanted Obama to “show proof of U.S. citizenship” are false, as the issue Fitzpatrick had asked the Monroe County grand jury to examine was a charge of treason against Obama.  Pettway had refused to allow the treason charge to be reviewed, and Judge Carroll Ross, whom Fitzpatrick has labeled as a “criminal,” stated that treason was a federal charge and could not be reviewed by a county grand jury.

In a TIME Magazine article dated September 30, 2010 written by Barton Gellman, both Huff and Fitzpatrick were identified as extremists.  Gellman wrote:

…In April, for example, Navy veteran Walter Fitzpatrick, acting on behalf of a group called American Grand Jury, barged into a Tennessee courthouse and tried to arrest the real grand-jury foreman on the grounds that he refused to indict Obama for treason. In May, Georgia militia member Darren Huff was arrested by Tennessee state troopers after telling them that he and other armed men intended to “take over the Monroe County courthouse,” free Fitzpatrick and “conduct arrests” of other officials, according to Huff’s indictment and his own account in an interview posted online.

Gellman is incorrect on several points.  Fitzpatrick was not “acting on behalf of a group called American Grand Jury” when he tried to advance his treason complaint.  He authored the complaint on March 17, 2009 and submitted it to the U.S. District Court in Washington, DC before attempting to gain an audience with his local grand jury in September 2009.  Beginning in May 2009, the criminal complaint was included in presentments made by members of the American Grand Jury to various judges, members of law enforcement, attorneys general, governors and state and U.S. legislators.  The original American Grand Jury website is now offline but maintains a Facebook page.

Huff was arrested on April 30, 2010, not May.  Gellman fails to link to any alleged “account” or interview of Huff’s which he claims was “posted online.”  Where is the evidence to support his statement?

After almost three years since Fitzpatrick’s original treason complaint against Obama, others have also labeled Obama a traitor, including a New Hampshire state representative, actor Peter Fonda, and prominent attorney and founder of Judicial Watch, Larry Klayman.  Former Vice President Richard Cheney reportedly described Obama as “giving aid and comfort to the enemy.”

Huff had told us that he took no position on Obama’s eligibility and that whoever was in the White House “was not supposed to impact” him; therefore, reports that Huff had intended to “force Obama out of office” are patently false.  The Post & Email recorded the interviews with Huff.  “That [Obama] is not my issue,” Huff had said.

Fitzpatrick has traveled to Knoxville to speak with the FBI on numerous occasions about the judicial corruption in Monroe County but has reportedly been told by agents, “This is the way it is.”

On June 16, 2011, WorldNetDaily had reported that William L. Bryan, aka PJ Foggy, “suggested he and others had organized in-person efforts designed to interfere in the cases of police officer Ronald C. Dischler in Beaumont, Texas, and Navy Lt. Com. (Ret.) Walter Fitzpatrick III of Monroe County, Tenn…”  Bryan had taken responsibility for the aforementioned heavy police presence in Madisonville of April 20, 2010, which resulted in schools being closed for the day and the presence of “roof-top sniper teams” and “Federal Agents,” according to Fitzpatrick.  District Attorney General Steve Bebb stated that he had expected “a turnout of extremists.”

In a follow-up article, Corsi stated that “Bryan and his associates have engaged in an aggressive campaign to disrupt any and all attempts to pursue legal challenges to Obama’s eligibility, while seeking to ridicule in vile and abusive terms those who dare advance or support publicly such legal efforts.”

Bryan is reportedly an attorney who no longer practices and the person “who forged and distributed a fraudulent Kenyan birth certificate in August 2009.”  He appears to be the administrator of The Fogbow, a pro-Obama website with forums in which members discuss the latest eligibility challenges, refute the allegations that the “long-form birth certificate” Obama showed to the public is a forgery, and “ridicule in vile and abusive terms” such individuals as Darren Huff, Walter Fitzpatrick, and readers of this newspaper as well as its editor.  The Post & Email cannot link to The Fogbow forum because of its obscene content.

It is possible that “PJ Foggy” has attempted to take down The Post & Email on numerous occasions.

Of the news that Huff’s sentencing had been postponed, Fitzpatrick said:

Mr. Bryan, who is an Obot, is being teflon-coated.  Mr. Bryan needs to be placed under arrest and held accountable for the events of 20 April 2010 because he has admitted to being responsible for them.  We shouldn’t be talking about Darren’s sentencing at this point; we should be talking about Darren’s release and the connection to Obama’s FBI top dogs.

Obama is tied to Bryan.  Bryan was bragging about being one of the agitators behind what happened on April 20th:  “We did that; good for us!”  The FBI has done nothing with this information.  The Department of Justice should have been looking into this, because if nothing else, they needed to look at this to clear Bryan from any participation in April 20 before they went after Darren Huff and held him responsible.  But the FBI and Department of Justice, working together, never went to Bryan, ever.

It was William Bryan.  This is clear evidence of FBI complicity.  They should at least have investigated.  Agent Roxane West was told on 28 June 2011.  She’s declared everything that we’ve brought to her “radioactive;” she’s not going to touch this stuff.  Then I spoke with Special Agent Reanna Day at Internal Affairs and nothing’s been done.  In the meantime, they’re looking to sentence Darren.  Darren should be released; he’s committed no crime.  He wasn’t responsible for that extraordinary police response.  Who is?  The man who admitted to doing it:  William Bryan.

I gave this information to Atty. Scott Green on 7 October 2011 when I was in jail, and Green told me he was going to pursue it, and evidently he didn’t do it.  He came into Cell #9 and sat down.  It was a Friday afternoon, as I recall.  He was being told for the first time about William Bryan.  I first said those words to the Terrorist Task Force Team headed by Mike Harrell back on 1 March 2011, almost one year ago.  I told Green, “If this comes up during the trial, Counselor, I don’t want you to be blindsided.  I did say these words, and now you know.”  That was the right thing to do.  If you’re a defense attorney and you want to introduce the concept of reasonable doubt as it goes to your client “taking over the courthouse,” let’s look at somebody who really has a motive to plant this kind of false flag.  Both Darren and I were set up.

During the course of Darren’s trial, Darren was accused of having been responsible for that extraordinary police response, and we now know that the police fell into that trap.  Bryan was the one who set the trap, and when the police found themselves with egg on their face, they had find some kind of scapegoat.  They couldn’t go after Bryan because he’s being protected by Obama.  Bryan has been protecting Obama, and Obama returned the favor.  This is the qui pro quo.  That’s why the FBI is being prevented from going after Bryan.  Scott Green did not introduce the issue of reasonable doubt as it goes to what happened on 20 April 2010.  William Bryan took credit for that.  An FBI agent needs to go and talk to him and say, “Who did you call, when did you call them, and what did you tell them?”

It the past, it has been considered a crime to give false information to the FBI.  Martha Stewart was convicted and jailed for allegedly doing so.  Did Bryan lie to the FBI about “armed men” who would be attempting to “take over the courthouse?”  Is it no longer a crime to lie to the FBI or other investigators because Obama is in office?

Fitzpatrick continued:

Who took down that information?  I asked Capt. Pat Wilson of the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department about this on 17 November 2011 when he called me down to his office and said, “Now, back away from this; we’ll give you a nice, cushy place over at the Annex,” and I said, “No, I’m not backing away from this. ” And I said, “Where did you get the information that caused the reaction of 20 April 2010?” and he said, “Well, we got it from your website and we got it from The Post & Email.” And I said to him, “No, you didn’t.”  So we now know that the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department and the FBI are working together; they’ve been working together for a long time.  And of course, the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department alerted other Tennessee authorities, which is why we saw that response on the 20th.

The Post & Email unequivocally denies Wilson’s statement as it was reported.  We had no prior knowledge of a heavy police presence in Madisonville, TN on April 20, 2010 and reported on the incident after it happened, not before.

Fitzpatrick added:

They took my computer because they’re looking for something that’s going to connect me to some kind of “anarchy” before April 20, 2010 so that they could say, “Fitzpatrick’s been involved with this all along.”  Well, that’s not there.

We have everything we need to see Darren Huff released.  This is Obama caught in his own Watergate moment:  having an innocent man arrested for a crime which he had nothing to do with. Obama is using Darren as a poster child for this “militia” group which he thinks is out there that’s trying to take over the country when we’re talking about a group of tried and true veterans who are patriots and trying to defend the Constitution against the kind of attack which Obama and his people are bringing against it.  That’s what’s going on.

In 2009, The Department of Homeland Security had assigned the term “extremist” to returning war veterans, gun owners, and about those “expressing concerns about the election of the first African American president” (page 4 of 9).  Its report was “coordinated with the FBI.”  DHS had also released a report on “leftwing extremism,” citing an expected increase in “cyber attacks” targeting businesses for maximum economic impact.

The “Occupy Wall Street” movement which began last September uses the clenched fist, also used by the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), as its logo.  Obama has endorsed OWS despite incidents of violence, obscenity and destruction of private property, by stating, “I think people are frustrated and the protesters are giving voice to a more broad-based suspicion about how our financial system works.”

So why has William L. Bryan not been prosecuted for his claim that he “got more than 100 cops ready for Cdr. Walt Fitzpatrick, when he showed up on April 20 with a group of armed men who thought they’d take over the Monroe County courthouse?”  Is he being protected by someone? the TBI? the FBI? the Obama regime?

The Knoxville FBI has been made aware of several “smoking guns” proving judicial corruption in Monroe County but appear to have taken no action.  Are they on the side of the people victimized by the corruption or those who perpetrate it?

The FBI has acknowledged that “government professionals” lie.  However, under Obama, are government liars prosecuted for it?  Has the FBI been co-opted by Eric Holder because his boss, Obama, is an impostor?  Is the FBI “going along to get along?”

Fitzpatrick had sent his complaint against Obama for treason to the federal grand juries in Knoxville but was told that any complaint had to be addressed to Killian.  Killian is an Obama appointee.

The U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee reported Huff’s conviction by labeling him a “militia extremist” and stated that “his conviction is a great achievement by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Theodore and Mackie and several local, state and federal law enforcement agencies.”  How did Killian determine that the statements made at Huff’s trial by prosecutors were truthful?  And to which “agencies” does he refer?  Could he mean the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department, the TBI, and the Knoxville FBI?

Why was Huff’s conviction “a great achievement?”  If someone else committed the crime, why is Huff sitting in jail?


Update, February 22, 2012, 7:55 p.m. ET:  The Post & Email has just learned from a source very close to Huff’s case that a continuance has been granted and a new sentencing date of April 3, 2012 has been set.

  1. From Zeb:

    William Bryan has always been a wild card in the Monroe county “riot”.
    Now attorney Green seems to have joined those ranks.
    Mr. Fitz made Green aware of Bryan.
    The “militia” presence at the “courthouse” was actually made up of a couple dozen Oath Keeper and SOLR members. There was no riot.
    One of the Oath Keeper attendees at the courthouse annex (the actual venue) met with attorney Green on the first day of Darren’s trial in Knoxville and offered to testify to the fact that there was no riot or intent to create one. He refused to introduce Bryan’s involvement and the fact that there was no intent to create a riot.
    So Green is complicit, along with the FBI and who knows what offer federal and state agencies in what has now been shone to have been a potentially dangerous false flag operation.
    One other interesting bit of irony is that Darren was never actually at the courthouse venue. It was raining that day and Darren was in a local coffee house while Fitz was in the courtroom!
    Green demonstrated incompetence during Darren’s trial, but what attorney would take an appeal? Who would dare risk their license, or worse? The ultimate question, perhaps, is if there is any avenue left for a citizen to redress grievances, effectively and safely?
