“OBAMA’S POLITICAL PRISONER”
by Sharon Rondeau
(Jan. 29, 2014) — A hearing at the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati, OH will be held on Thursday at 9:00 a.m. for Darren Wesley Huff, who was incarcerated on a federal firearms charge after Monroe County, TN officials falsely claimed that Huff and others had planned to “take over the courthouse” on April 20, 2010.
The hearing will take place in the 8th Floor Courtroom at the 540 Potter Stewart U.S. Courthouse located at 100 East Fifth Street, Cincinnati, OH 45202.
On April 20, 2010, Huff traveled to the Monroe County seat of Madisonville to attend an assignment hearing for Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III, who had begun exposing grand jury corruption in late 2009 in the Tenth Judicial District, which includes Monroe County. After an attempt to arrest the grand jury foreman on April 1, 2010, a judge ordered Fitzpatrick arrested instead and he was jailed for five days.
Upon arriving in Madisonville, Huff and others were greeted by between 100 and 200 law enforcers from the local, county, state and federal levels. A SWAT team with bomb-sniffing dogs and sniper team on the roof of the courthouse surveilled anyone approaching the center of town. A group of Obama supporters claimed responsibility online for summoning the heavy police presence, which was not only unnecessary but also reportedly cost the county approximately $500,000.
District Attorney General R. Steve Bebb, who is now under scrutiny by the Tennessee General Assembly and may be removed from his post, stated that he noticed “a lot of people he didn’t know carrying guns” outside the courthouse which was not supported by any documentation or photographs. FBI Special Agent Mark Van Balen provided false statements to federal authorities, who arrested Huff ten days later as he drove lawfully through Knoxville. Van Balen’s sworn affidavit stated that Fitzpatrick and Huff had planned violence at the courthouse, while Bebb stated that “It was the tensest day we ever had” in regard to the “violence” that was reportedly planned.
Van Balen’s claim of “eight or nine other militia groups” never materialized, although it was accepted as fact by the local press. Contrary to Bebb’s and others’ statements, Huff was not armed while in Madisonville, as his firearms had been locked in the toolbox attached to the back of his truck.
In October 2011, Huff was convicted of “transporting firearms across state lines with the intent to cause a civil disorder,” but acquitted on another charge. Originally, the jury produced a “hung” verdict on the remaining charge, but Varlan ordered them to “try again” in order to return a different verdict.
Fitzpatrick has termed the unnecessary massive police presence on April 20, 2010 “The Madisonville Hoax” and believes Huff is a political prisoner incarcerated for a “thought crime” in the vein of George Orwell’s 1984.
No one besides Huff was prosecuted for any crime, although an eyewitness reported that she and several others who tried to attend the hearing were audited by the IRS later that year. In May of last year, the IRS admitted to targeting “conservative” groups and individuals whose political views were seen as oppositional to those of the Obama regime. After an alleged review, the FBI stated that no arrests would be made despite the ongoing harassment of certain applicants for tax-exempt status.
Huff’s public defender for his trial, G. Scott Green, did not call key witnesses, including Fitzpatrick, to the stand, where Monroe County officials perjured themselves.
Huff’s assigned attorney for the appeal, Gerald Gulley, Jr., has been unresponsive to Huff’s appointed Power of Attorney, to Fitzpatrick, and others who possess evidence in the case favorable to Huff. The Post & Email has been told that Gulley’s specialty is traffic tickets, but his profile states that he is experienced in criminal law and other areas.
Huff has told The Post & Email that the appeals court is a “court of error” and therefore cannot consider exculpatory or new evidence on Thursday.
Obama sycophants continue to post propaganda about Huff’s case.
Fitzpatrick has attempted on numerous occasions to testify to a federal grand jury, but the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee, William C. Killian, and Judge Thomas A. Varlan of the U.S. District Court in Knoxville have refused to allow it. Fitzpatrick has stated that the loss of the Fifth Amendment grand jury as a barrier between the government and the people has dealt a blow to the Republic which could prove fatal.
In April 2009, a report from The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) was leaked to the media and revealed that the Obama regime considered military veterans to be “right-wing extremists” and later, “sovereign citizens.” Over the last five years, hundreds of veterans have reported trouble receiving pensions, medical benefits, intimidation from government officials and employees, shake-downs, and false arrests, including former Marine Brandon Raub, who was seized by federal agents without a warrant, arrested, incarcerated in a psychiatric institution and told he would be forced to take medication during the summer of 2012.
Huff has told The Post & Email that he knows he has been labeled a “sovereign citizen” by the prison staff and has been subsequently discriminated against in numerous ways, including withheld and damaged mail; the suspension of email privileges for no valid reason; and being held in a facility greater than 500 miles from his home in violation of Bureau of Prisons regulations.
The FBI claims that “Sovereign Citizens” “follow their own laws,” make “References to the Bible, The Constitution of the United States, U.S. Supreme Court decisions, or treaties with foreign governments,” and “often express particular outrage at tax collection, putting Internal Revenue Service employees at risk.”
Fitzpatrick and Huff were identified in a Tennessee law enforcement training program as “Sovereign Citizens” capable of and likely to commit violence.
Several weeks ago, Huff mailed a summary of his perception of the treatment he has received while in federal prison to The Post & Email, which he followed up with an allowed 15-minute phone call during which he discussed a “shot” (BOP incident report) resulting in the suspension of email privileges for referring to some of the guards as “fairies.”
The Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, and FBI launched a program dubbed “Operation Vigilant Eagle” to observe veterans returning from war theaters for “extremist” behavior or speech which Huff believes governs his treatment at the federal prison in Texarkana, TX, where he has been housed since the summer of 2012 following his sentencing.
