“DICTATORSHIP OF THE JUDICIARY” HAS REMAINED IN PLACE UNDER TN GOVERNOR
by Sharon Rondeau
The event will take place at Michael’s Restaurant, 2011 Congress Pkwy., Athens 37303.
Haslam has spent the last two days campaigning with U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander, who, like Haslam, is seeking re-election. The two began their series of meetings with constituents on Monday in Jackson in West Tennessee, moving to Middle Tennessee on Tuesday and East Tennessee planned for Wednesday.
Haslam and Alexander are Republicans, and the Tennessee General Assembly has a majority of Republicans in both chambers.
Athens is located in McMinn County, one of four counties in Tennessee’s Tenth Judicial District plagued by judicial corruption which includes jury-rigging, false arrests and indictments, and judicially-appointed grand jury foremen who serve for years, if not decades, unduly influencing the decisions of grand jurors who are easily intimidated.
An unknown number of Tennesseans are serving jail and prison sentences after corrupt juries and judges conducted show trials, failing to present evidence which the laws of any state would require in order for a prosecutor to prove his case. Nevertheless, juries often convict, after which prosecutors and defense attorneys have been seen congratulating one another.
On June 24, CDR Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III (Ret.), a 24-year Navy veteran, was found guilty of “aggravated perjury” and “extortion” without the existence of a police report or criminal complaint. The grand jurors who issued the presentment were compromised; the judge was not impartial as a result of previous knowledge of Fitzpatrick and his denial of a restraining order Fitzpatrick requested against his accuser; the accuser recanted his accusations on the witness stand; and the jury allegedly reviewed hundreds of pages of Fitzpatrick’s submissions to the grand jury in a relatively short period of time, the only “evidence” presented against him.
Fitzpatrick’s attorney, Van Irion, told radio show host Dr. Laurie Roth that the jury declared the First Amendment’s provision for a citizen to petition his government for redress of grievances a crime. “I’m now afraid to go to the grand jury,” Irion said.
Two weekends ago in southern California, Capt. Neil Turner attended a talk given by Maricopa County, AZ Sheriff Joe Arpaio about border insecurity and held a sign which said, “Free Commander Fitzpatrick,” then urged observers to spend three minutes making three phone calls urging that Judge Jon Kerry Blackwood vacate the verdicts against Fitzpatrick and that the U.S. House and Senate Judiciary Committees open an investigation into the corrupt Tennessee court system.
Fitzpatrick has called the power which Tennessee judges wield “the dictatorship of the judiciary.” He first exposed judicial corruption in neighboring Monroe County after inadvertently discovering that the grand jury foreman had served consecutively for at least two decades and had been hand-picked by a judge.
Fitzpatrick and others have reported inaccurate court transcripts; the Monroe County grand jury foreman attempting to obtain a confession from a prisoner; judges, including Blackwood, denying defendants their constitutional right to defense counsel; police brutality and the confiscation of prisoners’ funds while incarcerated; “medieval” jail conditions without proper sanitation; and the death of former elections commissioner Jim Miller in 2010 as “a government hit” which was never investigated.
Fitzpatrick is facing sentencing on August 19 for two felonies which he did not commit, his “punishment” for taking evidence of systemic corruption to the McMinn County grand jury for its review.
On Tuesday, Lt. Col. Field McConnell (Ret.) issued a press release in which he promised to release incriminating information about Blackwood and Obama if Blackwood does not vacate the verdicts against Fitzpatrick by 10:00 p.m. CDT. McConnell is a resident of Wisconsin and investigates crime and corruption as reported on his “Abel Danger” radio show.
McConnell has also promised to file a wrongful death lawsuit against “Barack Hussein Obama, aka Barry Soetoro,” if Blackwood does not vacate the jury’s decision.
Athens, TN is where the “Battle of Athens” took place 68 years ago when World War II veterans returned home to find their county tainted with election fraud, voter intimidation, police brutality, illegal gambling, bribery and other crimes. A group of veterans borrowed rifles from the armory, firing at the sheriff and some of his deputies, who had absconded the ballot boxes and physically assaulted a black man attempting to cast a vote in the August election.
The veterans acted because they were appalled at the “tyranny” they saw in their community. Fitzpatrick took action because of the “tyranny” he saw in the community, for which he was convicted of two felonies on June 24.
A detailed video entitled “The Battle of Athens: Restoring the Rule of Law” tells the story of the conflict which concluded in Sheriff Pat Mansfield and several of his deputies fleeing the county permanently.
Another innocent man, Marvin William Young, is facing up to 40 years in prison for uncovering his late father’s forged will, while Monroe County Sheriff Bill Bivens is protecting the man with a lengthy criminal record who stole the estate and is quickly selling off the assets.
Bivens is also seeking re-election this month.
Who will take the opportunity to tell Gov. Haslam?
