“SHE TRIED TO GIVE THEM BACK TO ME”
by Sharon Rondeau
(Feb. 12, 2018) — The following is the third in a series of articles in which LCDR Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III (Ret) detailed an encounter he had with his congressman’s staffer in the Athens, TN district office last Wednesday after he delivered, at her request, a documentation package containing information about his 1990 court-martial; a 2010 FBI false-flag operation dubbed “The Madisonville Hoax” over which now-Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller, III presided as then-FBI director; and the apparent involvement of the FBI and DOJ in presenting unverified information to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) between October 2016 and June 2017 to obtain warrants to monitor the communications of former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.
In the first article, Fitzpatrick contended that as head of the investigation allegedly probing whether or not Donald Trump and/or anyone in his campaign “colluded” with the Kremlin as well as alleged Russian “interference” in the 2016 U.S. election, Mueller is “using the same tactic against Trump as he used against military veterans” during “The Madisonville Hoax,” which took place on April 20, 2010.
A project called “Operation Vigilant Eagle” reported on by the mainstream press was revealed as having targeted military veterans as “potential domestic terrorists,” including those returning from wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, by the Obama regime. In August 2012, former Marine Brandon Raub was arrested and placed in a psychiatric ward against his will after FBI agents arrested him as a result of non-threatening Facebook posts. After Raub’s case became public, he filed suit, represented by The Rutherford Institute, which reported that hundreds of other veterans came forward to relate similar stories of “involuntary civil commitments like Raub’s.”
Rutherford directly connected Raub’s arrest and forced admission to a VA psychiatric ward to Operation Vigilant Eagle. Although the charges against Raub were dismissed by a federal judge and his immediate release ordered, the federal courts dismissed the lawsuit, up to and including the U.S. Supreme Court.
In regard to “The Madisonville Hoax,” a sworn affidavit signed by then-FBI Acting Supervisory Special Agent Mark Van Balen claimed that on April 20, 2010, Darren Wesley Huff traveled to Madisonville with the intent “to take over the city.” In the affidavit, Fitzpatrick was stated as having “personally drafted and issued citizens [sic] arrest warrants for twenty-four Federal, State and local officials,” a factual inaccuracy.
On April 1, 2010, Fitzpatrick had attempted to conduct a citizen’s arrest, legal in Tennessee, on the Monroe County grand jury foreman, Gary Pettway, for having served in the position for 28 continuous years in violation of TCA 22-2-314.
Van Balen misstated the date of the citizen’s arrest as April 2, 2010.
Fitzpatrick had provided local law enforcement advance notice of his intention to place Pettway under citizen’s arrest given that he was handpicked by a judge and was therefore unduly influencing the decisions of the grand jury.
Van Balen additionally claimed in his affidavit that he was told by unnamed “law enforcement officers” in Madisonville that day that “several individuals were in the possession of openly displayed and concealed firearms and were at the time present outside the Madison County General Sessions Court located in the Beecher Witt Government Building.”
The name of the building where Fitzpatrick’s hearing took place is the “J. Beecher Witt Judicial Building” as shown in a photo taken by Fitzpatrick this past Saturday.
The name of the county in which Madisonville is located is Monroe, not “Madison,” County.
No individuals were arrested that day, and law enforcement was subsequently unable to name anyone who was confronted for carrying “openly displayed” or “concealed firearms” in the vicinity of the courthouse. Virtually all mainstream-media coverage of the “event” has disappeared from the web, while much of the remaining coverage mischaracterized what actually took place.
After arriving in Madisonville that morning, Huff went to a nearby restaurant while his legally-owned firearms remained locked in the toolbox attached to the rear of his pickup truck. An eyewitness who spent the day with Huff, former Sergeant of Marines Bill Looman, said in a sworn affidavit that there was no confrontation with police and that they left town uneventfully that evening, with both men arriving safely at their respective Georgia homes.
Ten days later, Huff was arrested and charged, as a result of Van Balen’s affidavit, with two federal firearms violations.
Looman told The Post & Email that he was never called to testify at Huff’s trial.
Huff was acquitted on one charge and a hung jury resulted on the other, after which U.S. District Court Judge Thomas A. Varlan urged the jury to “try again.” Huff was then found guilty on the second charge and spent three and one-half years in federal prison.
In 2012, both Huff and Fitzpatrick were labeled “Sovereign Citizens” by Tennessee government in a training program funded in part by the U.S. Justice Department.
In regard to Carter Page, Fitzpatrick said that Mueller’s current investigation is tainted because the documentation presented by the FBI and DOJ to the FISA court was tainted, as is claimed in a four-page memo authored by Republican members of the House Permanent Subcommittee on Intelligence (HPSCI) made public on February 2. “They accused him of being a Russian spy, and they made it all up,” Fitzpatrick said. “They accused Darren and me of being domestic terrorists. How do I know that? Because Darren and I are the ‘stars’ of this DVD which I gave to the congressman,” he said, referring to the Sovereign Citizen training program.
On Thursday, Fitzpatrick reported that on Wednesday, Rep. Chuck Fleischmann’s staffer, Maxine Gernert, was “on the phone with Washington” when he arrived at the office at approximately 1:45 p.m. EST with the document package she had requested. “She didn’t want to come to the door,” Fitzpatrick said, although she eventually did so.
After entering the office, Fitzpatrick said he handed her the document package, which consisted of the following:
AN AUDIO CD OF ONE OF OBAMA’S WHITE HOUSE ATTORNEYS HOSTING A FOGBOW PODCAST
A COPY OF THE FORGERY FROM FITZPATRICK’S 1990 COURT-MARTIAL FOUND FILED IN THE NATIONAL ARCHIVES, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 2018: FORGERY ARCHIVED rec 6 Feb 2018
TWO DOCUMENT EXAMINER REPORTS DECLARING FITZPATRICK’S SIGNATURE FORGED:
A COPY OF A SEPTEMBER 5, 1997 NCIS INTERNAL MEMO DESCRIBING THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THE FITZPATRICK FORGERY AS PROVING FITZPATRICK’S COURT-MARTIAL WAS RIGGED MAKING THE NAVY AND THE MARINE CORPS LOOK “REALLY BAD.” 5 SEPTEMBER 1997 ERNIE SIMON NCIS MEMO
He then said he told Gernert, “The congressman needs to act on this. This is real-time, hard evidence of Mueller’s criminal invention.”
Given the May 2012 podcast and the Van Balen affidavit, Mueller created “a group of at least 13 people who made up extremist militia groups” who were planning on coming in and taking over the courthouse. And Mueller said in the podcast that it actually happened and that the FBI confronted the group and stopped them from carrying out the rest of their plan.
None of that happened.
The podcast talks about the FBI taking the lead and working with its “law enforcement partners.” There were literally hundreds of officers deployed there that day, with seven sheriffs’ departments involved. One of the officers, Mike “Too Tall” Hall, was in the café where they were surveilling us. He testified in court that Darren was at the café. There was not one single law enforcement official who said that he saw Darren at the courthouse or that they saw him in Madisonville with a gun. They made this all up.
We have sworn statements that say that Darren was not at the courthouse or have a gun. I have a list of people who were there that day; some of them gave statements. One of them died. There are others I was told were there, but nobody will give me their names. Part of that group included a woman with her home-schooled kids. None of these people were domestic terrorists, but according to Robert Mueller, there was a domestic-terrorist event which the FBI “stopped” with its law-enforcement partners.
There were people who were able to testify that Darren was at the café and nowhere else who were never called to the stand.
For anyone who wants to challenge what I’m telling you: all they have to do is give me one name of the people supposedly carrying guns that day. Just give me one. And they can’t. If they come up with the name “Darren Huff,” he never made it to the trailer-park courthouse and didn’t have a gun in his possession. So give me the next name.
There’s no question about the FBI’s position on this; it’s in a sworn statement which I gave to the congressman on Wednesday. It’s the same tactic that was used against Naval Academy graduate Page.
She took the materials I gave her and put them in a manila envelope with my name on it and I was standing to leave. “The congressman needs to act on this or I will hold him accountable,” I told her. And then she reacted to that with, “If that’s your position, I can’t receive this material,” and she tried to give them back to me.
She tried to hand them to me there, and I said, “No.” She then said, “You know what? We have to go down to the mayor’s office. Come with me. I’m going to give these materials back to you in front of someone in the mayor’s office.”
