Was Brandon Raub Labeled a “Sovereign Citizen?”
Posted on The Post & Email-By Sharon Rondeau-On August 28, 2012:
“(Aug. 28, 2012) — After The Blaze interviewed the president of a civil liberties advocacy organization about its recent defense of seized former Marine Brandon Raub, the video and story were widely disseminated on the internet with the statement that people have reportedly been “disappearing,” particularly veterans.
John Whitehead, who has been president of The Rutherford Institute since 1982, is featured on the home page of “Veterans Today.” In his interview with told Glenn Beck, owner of The Blaze, he told Beck that “the Rutherford Institute is getting flooded with calls, many of them from military veterans, who say they have been victims of involuntary civil commitments like Raub.” Whitehead added, “What I’m getting from veterans is, they say they are getting picked up by the FBI, mainly for 9/11 ‘truther’ statements” (emphasis The Blaze’s).
Rutherford has described the accounts coming in from veterans and others as “Orwellian,” referring to the novel 1984 by George Orwell about a world controlled by “Big Brother” in which people were regularly surveilled, brainwashed, deprived of their dignity, and beaten and tortured into submission. A review of the book stated:
You’ll find yourself asking how this man who wrote the novel in 1948 could possibly have such foresight into what would evolve into the world as we know it today. Similarities between life as we know it and life as Orwell foresaw abound.
For more than two years, The Post & Email has been reporting on the cases of Darren Wesley Huff and Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III, both of whom have been incarcerated as a result of attempting to expose government corruption. Huff is currently in a federal prison, while Fitzpatrick is fighting a charge of “tampering with government records,” after having spent more than six months in total in the Monroe County jail.
While The Blaze injected its opinion about those who doubt the official 9/11 narrative into the story, thereby editorializing, it vindicated statements Fitzpatrick has been making for nearly three years: that the Obama regime has targeted veterans, particularly white men, for incarceration if they speak out against government corruption on any level. The “Sovereign Citizen” training program assembled by the FBI, Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI), Department of Defense, U.S. Department of Justice, and the Tennessee Department of Safety is one example, as Huff and Fitzpatrick, who did not commit violent crimes, are portrayed as dangerous criminals in the same category as Terry Nichols and Timothy McVeigh.
Months ago, The Post & Email contacted The Blaze regarding judicial corruption in Tennessee, Fitzpatrick’s repeated incarcerations, and the police brutality which have been reported, but never received a response. We have contacted National Review Online, multiple law firms, Tennessee television stations and other news sources, none of which took interest in the story. Now Whitehead cites similar stories from “thousands of people” reported as having disappeared, to which Whitehead responded, “The government covers their tracks and they don’t tell the truth most of the time, unfortunately.”
What happened to Navy veteran Darren Huff?
He drove to attend an assignment hearing for Fitzpatrick on April 20, 2010 and was arrested ten days later. No crimes occurred that day nor on any other, yet FBI affidavits state that Huff had planned to commit acts of violence against public officials in Madisonville, TN. Huff claims that the witnesses lied on the witness stand during his trial and that he never made any claims to violence. Huff has told The Post & Email that he has been labeled a “sovereign citizen” in the prison where he is currently being held.
The federal government has failed to produce any documentation of the planning of the heavy police presence in Madisonville on April 20 six months after The Post & Email filed a Freedom of Information Act request to obtain it. Initially, the U.S. Department of Justice said it possessed no such documentation, and an appeal requesting another search has remained unanswered since May 1, 2012.
Fitzpatrick believes that the orders to mistreat and incarcerate veterans come from Obama personally. He has had many threats made against his life which have been reported to the FBI but appear not to have been investigated. After reporting judicial corruption to the FBI on a particular occasion, three agents laughed and responded, “This is the way it is.”
Instead of revealing his birth certificate and other probative materials to show that he is a “natural born Citizen” and constitutionally eligible to serve as president, Barack Hussein Obama remained mute and a decorated Army flight surgeon spent five months in Ft. Leavenworth for questioning him. While Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin was still incarcerated, Obama released what he claimed was his birth certificate, although an official law enforcement investigation has concluded that it is a “computer-generated forgery.”
The law enforcement officer overseeing the investigation of Obama’s birth certificate, Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, AZ, has been sued by the U.S. Department of Justice on charges of discriminating against Hispanics in the custody of his department. Arpaio denies the claims and is fighting the lawsuit in court. Fitzpatrick has stated that Arpaio is being treated like a “sovereign citizen” by the Obama regime.
The Post & Email has submitted two Tennessee Open Records Act requests for documentation of how and by whom the “Sovereign Citizen” training program was written and will report any results received in a future article.
Despite two pronouncements of forgery in regard to both Obama’s Selective Service registration card and his long-form birth certificate, Obama has not been arrested or charged with a crime. Members of the military, whether on active duty or retired status who have spoken out about what they see as Obama’s abuse of power or corruption within the federal government have been dismissed from the military, jailed, financially ruined, and in Raub’s case, intimidated by a psychiatrist.
When The Post & Email contacted the Washington, DC bureau of the FBI, the media contact person told us that the FBI “is investigating really serious crimes” and advised us to contact our congressman about the forgery issue.
Fitzpatrick was also ordered to obtain a psychiatric evaluation in April 2010, to which he reported but refused to undergo.
In April 2009, the Department of Homeland Security under Janet Napolitano stated that “returning veterans” were susceptible to succumbing to “right-wing extremism.” Major media outlets appear to have expounded on that theme.
Fitzpatrick spent 25 years in the U.S. Navy, earning numerous medals and letters of commendation, but has been labeled a “terrorist” by the Obama regime.
How many other veterans have stories similar to those of Fitzpatrick and Huff?
I. Mainstream Media Report: TBI Investigating Alleged Tenth Judicial District Corruption!-Posted on The Post & Email-By Sharon Rondeau-On August 28, 2012:
“(Aug. 28, 2012) — The Chattanooga Times Free Press is reporting that the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, Attorney General, and the state Comptroller’s Office have opened a probe into claims of malfeasance and fiscal improprieties in the Tenth Judicial District of the state.
A statement from Attorney General Robert E. Cooper, Jr. says that “there will be no public announcements regarding the progress of this investigation.”
The Post & Email has been reporting prosecutorial misconduct, rigged juries, hand-selected jurors, libel, defamation, and criminal conduct on the part of the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department, judges prosecutors and for nearly three years. Monroe County is one of four counties of the Tenth Judicial District.
While The Post & Email did not specifically investigate misspending of public money, while in the Monroe County jail, Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III reported that a human trafficking operation was ongoing which channeled people into the jail, many on bogus charges, in order to maintain a steady flow of cash which did not go toward upkeep of the building. The Monroe County jail was placed on a “Plan of Action” because of substandard conditions early last year but remains open today.
Many readers of The Post & Email and this writer have contacted Cooper and Gov. Bill Haslam over the last two years to protest police brutality, rigged juries, and unlawful conduct on the part of judges and members of the district attorney general’s office. The Tennessee Attorney General is appointed by the state Supreme Court rather than elected by the people. Others have contacted their legislators, who attempted to ignore the communications.
Fitzpatrick has called District Attorney General Steve Bebb “a criminal” along with Assistant District Attorneys General Jim Stutts and Paul D. Rush. Rush is prosecuting Fitzpatrick on a case involving government records which Fitzpatrick’s attorney, Van Irion of Knoxville, said that “Facts alleged in the indictment could only have occurred if members of the Monroe County Court’s staff first acted negligently.”
The state of Tennessee has insulated its judges and prosecutors from public scrutiny with layers of bureaucracy. The state Supreme Court operates the Board of Professional Responsibility to discipline attorneys. The now-defunct Court of the Judiciary was recently replaced by the “Board of Judicial Conduct” which still contains mostly judges and attorneys. One, Judge Christy Little, has exhibited less than professional conduct while on the bench in a child custody case reported exclusively by The Post & Email.
Tennessee General Assemblywoman Mae Beavers, who is chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, had wanted to institute a judicial oversight board with more citizen authority but was urged to drop her proposed legislation by Lt. Gov. and Senate Speaker Ron Ramsey earlier this year. Ramsey had never responded to any of The Post & Email’s telephone calls about judicial corruption in the Tenth Judicial District.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation told Fitzpatrick almost two years ago that it could not launch an investigation into a judge’s conduct unless ordered to do so by the District Attorney General or the “Attorney General in Nashville.” At that time, Agent Cathy Pendleton rudely said to Fitzpatrick, “I don’t know what to tell you. You could call the governor…” and then called Fitzpatrick a “blowhard.” “You’re just running your mouth,” Pendleton said, concluding with “I think you need to find somebody else to ying-yang with, sir, because I’m not gonna talk to you,” after which she hung up on him.
Fitzpatrick had contacted Attorney General Cooper and said he had “gotten the runaround.” Fitzpatrick told Pendleton that “the judges have taken over our grand juries,” citing the long-standing grand jury foreman in Monroe County, Gary Pettway. Local FBI office agents have told Fitzpatrick, “Live with it!” in regard to the corruption of the juries.
Fitzpatrick has recently met with his state senator and representative and given them copies of 1984 laws still current which state that Tennessee’s criminal courts were directed to reorganize into and empanel jurors from districts consisting of several counties, in most cases. Neither of the legislators has responded to an invitation from The Post & Email to a complimentary subscription to read its now-extensive collection of evidence pointing to massive corruption in their districts and their state.
Given the 1984 laws, it appears that Fitzpatrick was correct when he said that the “Monroe County Criminal Court” had no “jurisdiction” over him. Fitzpatrick has been jailed on five occasions totaling over six months and labeled a “sovereign citizen” by the TBI and FBI for his exposure of corruption within the Tenth Judicial District and Tennessee as a whole, beginning with his filing of a criminal complaint for treason against Barack Hussein Obama in March 2009.
In the Fourth Judicial District, a former deputy sheriff is awaiting sentencing for a felony he did not commit which has ruined his career and besmirched his reputation. A phone call from The Post & Email to the Sevier County Sheriff’s Department asking for information on the case last week was not returned.
Have enough Tennessee residents spoken up about the corruption in their midst to effect action? Could the evidence against officials in the Tenth Judicial District be taken to a lawfully-empaneled grand jury for review, as outlined in the Fifth Amendment?”
