“THE LAWLESS ONE”
by Michael Jackson, ©2014
(Aug. 23, 2014) — [Editor’s Note: On Thursday, The Post & Email received the following copy of a letter sent to Judge Jeanine Pirro, host of “Justice with Judge Jeanine” aired on Saturday evenings on the Fox News Channel.
On August 16, Pirro’s headline topic was the indictment issued by a Travis County, TX grand jury claiming that Texas Gov. Rick Perry abused the powers of his office by vetoing funding to the office of a district attorney who had been arrested, spent time in jail, and was convicted of driving while intoxicated while heading the state’s Public Integrity Unit.
Over the last five years, The Post & Email has published the findings of CDR Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III (Ret.), who discovered in 2009 that county grand juries in Tennessee are tainted by a judicially-appointed foreman who consequently holds undue sway over the grand jurors. The grand juries in Tennessee’s Tenth Judicial District have been shown to not only be illegally-formed, but also to issue indictments under pressure from prosecutors or to refuse to review a petition because of influence from the foreman.
On Tuesday, Fitzpatrick was sentenced to three years in jail after attempting to take a petition with evidence of criminality on the part of judges, prosecutors, grand jury foremen and court personnel involving rigging juries over many decades and violations of state law. On March 18, Fitzpatrick was arrested while awaiting the disposition of his petition on a bench outside the courtroom in the McMinn County courthouse and reading, “The Last Juror” by John Grisham.
Fitzpatrick believes that the existence of grand juries as the Fifth Amendment intended them to function is that which “makes us a constitutional republic.” Having taken an oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution upon enrolling in the U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis in 1971, Fitzpatrick felt it was his duty to attempt to present the alleged violations of law to the McMinn County grand jury for redress, as the First Amendment and Tennessee law allow.
However, the trial jury criminalized the First Amendment and found Fitzpatrick guilty of “aggravated perjury” and “extortion” despite a lack of evidence, including police reports, criminal complaints, dates, times, and witnesses other than two court clerks and former McMinn County grand jury foreman Jeffrey Cunningham, who denied having been Fitzpatrick’s accuser.
The grand jury which issued the indictments was already prejudiced against Fitzpatrick, as Cunningham stated under oath that he had provided them with “history” on Fitzpatrick in January, after which one of the grand jurors asked, “Should I be afraid of Mr. Fitzpatrick?” However, the indictments were allowed to stand.
Under Judge Jon Kerry Blackwood, the district attorney general’s office assumed the role of accuser as well as that of prosecutor. Blackwood was also compromised from his previous knowledge of Fitzpatrick but refused to recuse himself.
Last winter, grand jury expert Dr. Roger Roots told a radio audience that he has followed Fitzpatrick’s efforts to expose grand jury corruption and that he has never seen anything as egregious involving grand juries as that which occurs in Tennessee routinely. Roots has written that grand juries are only a shadow of their former stature, construction and power in the community, where they would investigate citizen reports of crime, issue subpoenas, and meet without the influence of a prosecutor, attorney, or judge.
During sentencing on Tuesday, prosecutor A. Wayne Carter and Blackwood insulted Fitzpatrick and his military service in an attempt to publicly impugn his character. Blackwood was reported by several eyewitnesses and the mainstream media to have said, “I’m sick and tired of all these people who want to talk about their Constitutional rights” and “So what if the grand jury foreman is serving illegally? Who cares?”
Jackson’s letter also makes reference to the declared forgeries of Barack Obama’s long-form birth certificate by the Maricopa County, AZ Cold Case Posse and the jailing and dishonorable discharge of Lt. Col. Terry Lakin, a decorated Army medical doctor who made a decision not to follow orders from his chain of command until Obama could prove that he was constitutionally qualified to serve as president.
As Lakin served his six-month term at Ft. Leavenworth following a court-martial in which he was not allowed discovery, the White House released an image purported to be a scan of Obama’s long-form birth certificate from Hawaii. The image was declared a forgery within 24 hours by various experts who went on camera to explain how the image was fabricated. In August 2011, members of the Surprise, AZ Tea Party approached Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio to request an investigation into the image to prevent voter disenfranchisement for the upcoming 2012 presidential election.
In September of that year, Arpaio assigned the Cold Case Posse, which works at no cost to taxpayers, to investigate the birth certificate image. On March 1, 2012, Arpaio and lead investigator Michael Zullo held a press conference at which they announced that not only the birth certificate, but also Obama’s Selective Service registration form, are “computer-generated forgeries.”
The White House has not responded to the many allegations of forgery, fraud and treason from both the criminal investigation and graphics experts. In February, Zullo announced on Carl Gallups’ “Freedom Friday” radio show that Arpaio had launched a second criminal probe into matters ancillary to the birth certificate.
Tonight’s main subject on “Justice with Judge Jeannine” is “Can President Obama handle the ISIS threat?”]
