Ominous music

William (“Wilkie”) Fain has posted a trailer on YouTube titled “WFF3,” obviously in reference to Walter Francis Fitzpatrick III. I’m not sure whether the viewer is invited think that the World Wrestling Federation is being crossed with World War III, or just what. And what’s the bit about the orange screen with a black square and circle?

The main feature of the video, besides a little dialog from Walter Fitzpatrick that briefly recounts his attempt to arrest a Tennessee grand jury foreman, is the ominous music. I left the following comment on the video:

Since when can anybody off the street go and arrest someone they think has committed a crime? Exactly what criminal code section did this grand jury foreman allegedly violate?

Convicts say that the jails are full of “innocent” people. That’s what they say. For the rest of us, juries listen to the evidence and decide these things. Setting it to ominous music changes nothing.

I expect that it will get It was deleted.

Surprise! Tea Party to hear Rondeau tomorrow

imageThe Surprise Tea Party Patriots (not to be confused with the Surprise Tea Party or The Judean People’s Front), will hear Post & Email web site editor Sharon Rondeau make a presentation September 2, 2014, via Skype™ about her favorite subject, the travails of Walter Francis Fitzpatrick III. STPP describes the Post & Email:

The Post & Email is a child-friendly site which focuses on government corruption and constitutional issues.

The heavily-spun article on the STPP site is quite lengthy with a bio of Rondeau and a narrative of Fitzpatrick’s run-ins with the State of Tennessee over his attempt to force his interpretation of Tennessee grand jury statutes on the State.  One can be sure that the Arizona patriots will not hear both sides of the issue.

The Surprise Tea Party Patriots is the bunch that petitioned Sheriff Arpaio to investigate Obama’s birth certificate.

Judge sentences Fitzpatrick to 3 years

Calls him a “moral coward”

Judge John Blackwell had no sympathy for Walter Fitzpatrick’s claims of defending the constitution, as he sentenced the former Navy Lt. Commander to 3 years in jail with the possibility of parole after serving 30% of the sentence following a June conviction on felony charges of extortion and aggravated perjury.

The judge was quoted by defense attorney Van Irion as saying: “I’m sick and tired of all these people who want to talk about their Constitutional rights.” The context of that remark, if accurate, was not readily available.

According to the Chattanooga Times Free Press, something over 25 people were in the court gallery to support Fitzpatrick. Fitzpatrick was taken into custody following the sentencing. For a first-hand account of the hearing:

Fitzpatrick sentencing hearing August 19

I have not been a close follower of Walter Fitzpatrick III and his battle against the grand jury system in Tennessee that led him to some jail time. His most recent conviction has a sentencing hearing in Athens, Tennessee, next Tuesday, August 19. Fitzpatrick has not been cooperating with the process, refusing to meet with probation officers.

So the schedule is:

  • August 18 at 8 AM – Prayer breakfast at the Cracker Barrel
  • August 18 at 3 PM – BBQ at the Athens Regional Park
  • August 19 – Sentencing hearing

The Abel Danger radio show is interested, and Lt. Col. Field McConnell, Ret., that show’s host, will be at the hearing. Some fellow named William “Wilky” Fain (of William Fain Productions) will be making video which promises to uncover widespread corruption in Tennessee family courts.

Here’s a video from yesterday about Fain making the video including Sharon Rondeau. (Warning: Cookies are eaten during the video).

In other Fitzpatrick news, Attorney Van R. Irion filed a motion for a new trial, as well as to suspend sentencing pending appeal.

Birther movement creator found with potentially smoking gun

Joseph Farah, editor of the Internet tabloid WorldNetDaily, was detained at the Dulles Airport after TSA screeners found a loaded 38 caliber revolver in his carryon luggage. He faces a class 1 misdemeanor charge, says The Southern Poverty Law Center web site.

Farah famously claimed to have created the birther movement. His WorldNetDaily “Where’s the Birth Certificate” billboards and a similarly-named book by Jerome Corsi popularized the movement, and their support for Sheriff Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse kept the movement alive after Obama released his long-form birth certificate.

I wonder what he planned to do with that gun?

Update:

Farah has commented on his experience in an article at WorldNetDaily calling his action “something stupid.” Farah then goes on to use the incident to push some other left-wing bashing agenda.

Farah and WorldNetDaily have been very critical of the TSA, writing a series of articles such as:

That’s not half of them. You would think that Farah feels the way about the TSA as I feel about birthers. :shock:

Commentary

This article appears because I felt that my readers would want to know about the Farah incident. There is some satisfaction seeing what I think is a successful “bad person” get his comeuppance.1 It is not intended as evidence that birthers are a special class of scofflaw, at least not consciously. Perhaps part of it is that vocal birthers hold themselves as upholders of the law (in particular the Constitution) and ones who resist what they perceive as the lawlessness of the Executive. The “Birthers behaving badly” series seeks to poke holes in that argument with counterexamples, but don’t expect tomorrow’s headline to be “Birther fined for littering.”


1I don’t think I’ve ever written that word before.

Walter Fitzpatrick: Guilty!

One-man birther crime wave Walter Francis Fitzpatrick III was found guilty of two felony counts: aggravated perjury and extortion.

The McMinn County jury began deliberations this morning and returned its verdict later in the day.  He was not found guilty of stalking and harassment. Fitzpatrick was arrested last March on four charges stemming from allegations that he harassed and stalked a grand jury foreman. According to the indictment, reports the Daily Post-Athenian covering McMinn and Meigs Counties :

…it was claimed that Fitzpatrick "did unlawfully and intentionally threaten … to take action known to be unlawful…"

Fitzpatrick is also accused of making "a false statement, under oath, during or in connection with an official proceeding," as well as engaging in "a willful course of conduct involving repeated or continuing harassment that would cause a reasonable person to feel terrorized, frightened, intimidated, threatened, harassed or molested and actually caused (his alleged victim, a former member of the McMinn County Grand Jury) to feel terrorized, frightened, intimidated, threatened, harassed or molested."

Fitzpatrick was represented by well-known attorney, and failed judicial candidate, Van R. Irion.
