FRAUD – the motion picture

What sizes up to be a very angry attack on Barack Obama from Quad City Pictures is supposedly “coming soon to a theater near you.” That was November of 2009, but it’s still making the rounds. I include it here for the sheer anger expressed by these anti-Obama folks.

Wake up America! Stop watching Oprah

    sfjeff: Is this the new definition of trailer trash’?

    Good one…As I had indicated on another thread the so called creator of the film is interviewed over at the post and fail….He is a full blown birther repeating the same discredited talking points….

    And as I noted in the other thread, Brent Bateman also sees dead people. From his MySpace profile:

    “I’ve always been intrigued by the after life, so it’s not a surprise that I really do see dead people, and I have the ability to embrace the spirit world.”

    Of course, when they can’t find a distributor to get it into the theaters or if it does get into the theaters and it bombs, they’re sure to claim some sort of conspiracy.
    When An American Carrol (the film by the Zuckers where a Michael Moore-like character was shown the error of his ways) didn’t do as well at the box office as its backers had hoped, they claimed it was because when people bought tickets to see it, the theater gave the patrons a ticket with the name of another movie on it.

    Walt Fitzpatrick is back pretending to be a legal expert….Notice how he interjects his case in this one…He still has a hard on for being Court martialed 21 years ago….He is really crazy…

    http://www.thepostemail.com/2010/09/28/introduction-anatomy-of-a-court-martial/

    “Lt. Commander Walter Fitzpatrick contacted The Post & Email out of his stated concern for Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin, who is scheduled to be court-martialed next month as a result of his refusal to follow orders on the grounds that Barack Hussein Obama does not meet the constitutional eligibility requirements to serve as commander-in-chief of the military.”

    …………….

    “However, Fitzpatrick has stated that military courts-martial are “rigged” against the defendant with no appeal process, and that in his case, the accuser and prosecutor were one and the same, in violation of proper procedure. He claims that “forgery has been proved” in regard to a “confession” document which was produced and put in his file (shown below) and that military commanders up to and including Admiral Michael Mullen are aware of but have taken no steps to correct the injustice which he was dealt 21 years ago.

    According to Fitzpatrick, “The official Navy-Marine Corps position remains undisturbed.”

    The following is the first of a series of reports which The Post & Email will be publishing in regard to Cdr. Fitzpatrick’s court-martial, how his experience relates to Lt. Col. Lakin’s upcoming court-martial, and finally, how the absence of a jury trial within the military justice system has been imposed on the civilian population by the government takeover and/or abolition of Fifth Amendment-guaranteed grand juries.”

    …………….

    “My captain was a man named Mike Nordeen, and his brother was murdered in a car bomb attack by November 17th. We sent people to the funeral. I was court-martialed for “stealing” the money that was used for that funeral trip. Not a single penny went into my pocket. Everything was made up because I was the kind of officer who, if I had been promoted to senior rank, would have been causing trouble about the types of things that you and I are both discussing today. Bitoff is a political animal. I told you about the “Courtney Massengills” of the world, the court-martial people, the guys who climb on the backs of the people? John Bitoff is one of those kinds of guys.”

    ………………

    CDR. FITZPATRICK: I had been transferred from the USS Mars to the Naval War College under orders. I had finished my executive office tour with magnificence. I received a 4.0 fitness report. I got straight “As,” everything. I have the “fit rep” and can send it to you. It was a glowing report. I was put in for the Meritorious Service Medal, which is the peacetime Bronze Star. Part of what I was being commended for was the way I handled the ship as my captain had to go and attend to his brother’s remains. We were going through refresher training at the time. Mike Nordeen was the Naval escort to bring his brother home, and we sent a team of people with wives to escort the women in the Nordeen family to the funeral. I was court-martialed 14 months later for “stealing the money” for that funeral.

    Again, there was no crime committed. The whole thing was nothing but a fabrication, and again, to this day, nobody can tell me what it was that I did for which I was court-martialed and then attainted. The attorney who was assigned to me, Kevin Anderson, ended up moving to where I used to live. We used to shop in the same stores. At the end of all this, and because of what Bitoff and Zeller did, and because they didn’t want the information to eventually come to light and be seen, ever, they ordered Anderson to construct my confession and put it into the record.”

    …….

    “Bitoff saw that I was the kind of officer who would blow the whistle, so he needed to find a way to get me out of the military. So this is the way that he used: he rigged a court-martial. If I were still on active duty today, or if I had been promoted into the Pentagon, I would have been looking at the kind of corruption that we see now today in plain view. They saw me as a Boy Scout, as a guy who was actually going to stand behind the Constitution and defend it; where I saw corruption, I would report corruption. I was on my way to the War College. I was being groomed for flag rank, and Bitoff knew that. He took me out of the game when he was able to do so, and that’s what’s been going on in the military everyplace. You have senior officers now in command who have been groomed to be criminals. The people who would have fought against this kind of corruption have been removed; they’ve been ostracized.”

    Patrick McKinnion:

    This was fascinating; a troubling record of a very troublesome man. I imagine that Fitzpatrick’s bitter record of anti-social, litigious behavior is mirrored in the biographies of many other birthers.

    Got a question for you. . . I’ve read about the incident that scuttled Fitzpatrick’s career, and frankly, his violation seemed rather benign. Do you think the Navy acted as it did because Fitzpatrick was a major pain in the ass? Were they just looking for a way to get rid of the guy?

    That’s a good question. I suspect if he had been anything other than the XO of the ship in question (other than the captain that is), they might have gone “swat, don’t do that again”. However, the XO and CO are supposed to set better examples – and at that level, it’s pretty easy to be beached for otherwise simple mistakes. There’s only a set number of ships to be captain or executive officer of – and the XO position is supposed to be a final test before being offered a captain’s slot of your own.

    BTW, the USS Mars Reunion Association does list him as XO from 1988-89. And that’s pretty much the only mention of him on their website.

    Patrick:

    Thanks for your response to my question. I can see how the Navy would brook no errors of judgment in a man who was in line to become CO of a warship. I think Fitzpatrick is a fascinating character. It’s interesting to me that a fellow who spent a good part of his life in authoritarian, top-down institutions like the Naval Academy and Navy, has become such a bilious antagonist of authority–whether at the local, state, or national level. It might be that the Navy’s action against Fitzpatrick not only destroyed his career, but destroyed his ability to be at peace with himself or those around them. I feel sorry for that twisted little misanthrope, but I doubt he’ll ever acknowledge the role he plays in his own misery.

    That strikes me as a fair assessment. I always thought that it was notable that the Navy never gave John McCain a sea command. I suspect that the top brass had reservations about his temperament and judgment, given his history of carousing and sometimes reckless behavior. I would have loved to have seen McCain’s Navy fitness reports, but he never released them and no one with any influence ever asked to see them. It likewise would be interesting to see Fitzpatrick’s pre-court-martial fitness reports. I wonder if he had a reputation for being angry and combative.

    By the way, your blog is essential reading.

    It could also be that Fitzpatrick’s refusal to admit error and insistence that he knows the law better than the lawyers was already in evidence back then. Do we know if he was offered non-judicial punishment? The personality we see today would probably reject that option and demand a court-martial because he did nothing wrong in his eyes and would take the higher risk rather than admit error.
