“CREATIVE” U.S. ATTORNEY CLAIMS “TEXT MESSAGES” BETWEEN HUFF AND FITZPATRICK WHICH DO NOT EXIST
by Sharon Rondeau
(Feb. 1, 2014) — On Thursday, January 31, 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.
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.
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 first 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 6, 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 for a brief time the following day.
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.”
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 Eagle, Sovereign 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 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 not armed. 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.
Sharon Rondeau has operated The Post & Email since April 2010, focusing on the Obama birth certificate investigation and other government corruption news. She has reported prolifically on constitutional violations within Tennessee’s prison and judicial systems.
