Tensions raised after new shooting.

SAYS, “I’M TIRED OF THESE PEOPLE WHO SAY THEY’RE KEEPING THEIR OATH” by Sharon Rondeau

An eyewitness who lives in the Athens, TN community said that Blackwood’s performance in the courtroom was the “most corrupt judiciary I’ve ever seen.”
Character statements were taken from Fitzpatrick’s attorney, Van Irion, and Lt. Col. Field McConnell, USMC (Ret.), who came from his home state of Wisconsin to stand beside Fitzpatrick, who graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy four years after McConnell did.
Fitzpatrick was led away in handcuffs by McMinn County Sheriff’s deputies, whose patrol cars say on the back, “Keeping the Oath.”
On March 18, Fitzpatrick tried to submit evidence of criminality on the part of judges, prosecutors, the grand jury foreman and the sheriff’s department to the McMinn County grand jury but instead was himself arrested after waiting quietly on a bench outside of the courtroom for a decision on his petition.
On June 24, a jury found Fitzpatrick guilty of the two felonies, despite a lack of evidence, prosecutorial misconduct and no accuser or victim in the case.
The eyewitness reported that Blackwood disparaged Fitzpatrick’s character viciously, just as Judge Roland Freisler did in The People’s Court hearings of 1944 of participants in a plot to assassinate Adolf Hitler. At one point, Blackwood was heard to say, “I’m tired of these people who say they’re keeping their oath.”
Prior to Tuesday, Blackwood’s office received dozens, if not hundreds, of phone calls asking that the verdicts be vacated. On Monday, Blackwood’s secretary told a caller that she was not keeping track of the calls or relaying the information they contained to Blackwood.
The observer said that her understanding is that Fitzpatrick must serve 30% of the sentence, which will run concurrently with a conviction from Monroe County suspended by Judge Walter C. Kurtz pending appeal.
That case has now been appealed to the Tennessee Supreme Court. For the last five years, Fitzpatrick has referred to the corrupt Tennessee court system as a “dictatorship of the judiciary.”
When Fitzpatrick was led out of the courtroom in handcuffs, several attendees applauded to show support.
Two mainstream media stations were there with cameras. Channel 12′s Jason Mahon tweeted, then removed, a comment addressed to filmmaker William Fain which incorrectly identified Fitzpatrick as “William:” James Mahon News 12 (@JamesMahonWDEF) tweeted at 10:10 AM on Tue, Aug 19, 2014:

The eyewitness said that both stations planned to air a report sometime today. McConnell promised to file a wrongful death lawsuit against Barack Hussein Obama in the event that Blackwood did not vacate the verdicts.

Plum City – (AbelDanger.net): United States Marine Field McConnell has linked Serco’s ITT ad-hoc waypoint service to Fugro timing signals allegedly used by White’s Club bookmakers to game the hijacks of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 and 370, and an apparent attempt by Serco banker HSBC to launder spot-fixed vigs through the accounts of three Flight 370 passengers into a fourth passenger’s account in Kuala Lumpur on July 18.
McConnell claims that David “Riot Club” Cameron (Treasury 90-93) and Nicholas “White’s Club” Soames (UK Minister of Defence 94-97) arranged HSBC dirty loans to SBA protégé companies to set up Serco’s ITT ad-hoc waypoint service for elite spread-betting guests of Sheraton and Marriott hotels during the 9/11 attack on America.
McConnell alleges that Fugro provided GPS and GLONASS orbit/clock data needed by White’s bookmaker to time the MH 17 and 370 transits through Serco’s ITT ad-hoc waypoints and ensure that pre-positioned triage teams associated with the Offender’s Tag Association could care of spot-fix body counting and the spoliation of evidence.
McConnell notes that Australian Prime Minister Tony “Bali Bombing Hotel” Abbott’s government has hired Amsterdam-based Fugro to search for the wreckage of MH 370 in the Southern Indian Ocean – a decision presumably taken because Fugro has the best technology to determine where the spot-fixed plane is not!

Islamic State militants have released a graphic video allegedly depicting the beheading of American photojournalist James Wright Foley, who has been missing in Syria since 2012.
The Islamist group also threatened to kill another American journalist, Steven Joel Sotloff of World Affairs and Time, stating his fate is in the hands of President Barack Obama.
Foley went missing almost two years ago while covering the conflict in Syria as a freelance photographer. The 39-year-old reporter was working for Agence France-Presse when he disappeared, and his whereabouts were essentially unknown until this recording surfaced.
His November 22nd disappearance was classified as a kidnapping by the FBI, which stated he “was taken by an organized gang after departing from an internet café in Binesh, Syria.”
In the new video, the militants proclaimed the violent act as “a message to America” for its decision to launch airstrikes against the Islamic State in Iraq, where it has made rapid territorial conquests over the last few months.
After stating that President Obama’s decision to authorize military action against the extremist group “effectively [placed] America upon a slippery slope towards a new war front against Muslims,” Foley appears kneeling beside a masked man. He is forced to read a letter which blames the US government for “hammering the final nail into his coffin” before the masked man takes his life.

Sotloff’s life, meanwhile, “depends on Obama’s next decision,” the group claimed. Sotloff has been missing since mid-2013, and his Twitter account indicates his last known location was Libya.
In a statement, the US National Security Council confirmed it had seen the video, but added that it’s still working to determine its authenticity.
“If genuine, we are appalled by the brutal murder of an innocent American journalist and we express our deepest condolences to his family and friends,” NSC spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden said.
The video’s release comes just one day after militants declared they would attack American targets “in any place” if American airstrikes kill any of their members. Militants said, “we will drown all of you in blood” and flashed images of an American was beheading during the United States’ initial invasion of Iraq.
So far, the Islamic State’s campaign through Iraq has seen numerous reports of beheadings, including those carried out against child victims. The group has regularly threatened Christians and other minorities to either convert to their radical take on Islam or die, and even forced tens of thousands of ethnic Yazidis to flee to Sinjar Mountain with no food or water in order to escape being executed.
The last event triggered renewed military and humanitarian action by the United States earlier this month, and airstrikes have been used to help Kurdish security forces beat back militant fighters from northern Iraq. On Monday, Obama announced Iraqi and Kurdish forces had retaken control of the Mosul Dam – Iraq’s largest, and a key strategic landmark – marking the most significant victory for Iraqi troops since the US became involved again.
