A former military officer who has pursued a criminal complaint accusing President Obama of treason over his refusal to provide his original birth certificate that could document his presidential eligibility is facing a court hearing in two weeks over allegations of disorderly conduct and “rioting” for confronting a grand-jury meeting in Tennessee.
In his complaint addressed to Obama via U.S Attorney Russell Dedrick and Assistant U.S. Attorney Edward Schmutzer, Eastern District, Tennessee, Fitzpatrick wrote then: “You have broken in and entered the White House by force of contrivance, concealment, conceit, dissembling, and deceit. Posing as an impostor president and commander in chief you have stripped civilian command and control over the military establishment.”
He continued, “I accuse you and your military-political criminal assistants of TREASON. I name you and your military criminal associates as traitors. Your criminal ascension manifests a clear and present danger. You fundamentally changed our form of government. The Constitution no longer works.”
Now Fitzpatrick is facing a local court hearing in Monroe County, Tenn., on municipal and county allegations of resisting arrest, riot, disorderly conduct and interrupting a meeting.
Officials with the sheriff’s office said he was released today, and his supporters said he staged a five-day hunger strike in jail before leaving on the $1,500 bond.
According to JB Williams, who writes at Canada Free Press, a sheriff’s department officer confirmed to him that Fitzpatrick had declined food and water during his incarceration following his arrest last Thursday.
He reported that while Tennessee law specified that a “foreperson” of a grand jury shall hold office for two years, the actual case in Monroe County involved a foreman who had been in the position for 27 years.
Fitzpatrick then filed paperwork with the court in his attempt to make a “citizen’s arrest” of the alleged offender, and he was in return arrested when he attempted to make the arrest.
A video has been posted by his supporters explaining the case:
Fitzpatrick’s supporters called for a rally Wednesday at the Monroe County Courthouse in Madisonville, Tenn.
The same panel repeatedly had rejected his requests to express his concerns that Obama is ineligible to be president, the report said.
The U.S. Grand Jury website earlier issued a report on the Monroe County grand jury procedures that alleged that the process there “has been tainted and corrupted by the continuous service of Mr. Gary Pettway as grand jury foreman for the past 27 years” and that there exists “evidence of obstruction” in Fitzpatrick’s efforts to present his evidence to the panel.
“On Thursday of last week, Lt. Cmdr. Fitzpatrick attempted to exercise his right as a citizen, NO, his DUTY as a citizen and effect a citizen’s arrest against known criminals named in Monroe County Tennessee,” said a commentary posted on the site. “He was met with opposition from the local law enforcement to include the Madisonville Police Department and the Monroe County Sheriff Department taking orders from one of the named criminals in his arrest complaint.
“Although you may not live in Monroe County or even in Tennessee, make no mistake, this does affect you. If this action is not met with swift and certain justice, we will see similar scenes unfold all across this country.”
Besides Obama’s actual birth documentation, the still-concealed documentation for him includes kindergarten records, Punahou school records, Occidental College records, Columbia University records, Columbia thesis, Harvard Law School records, Harvard Law Review articles, scholarly articles from the University of Chicago, passport, medical records, his files from his years as an Illinois state senator, his Illinois State Bar Association records, any baptism records, and his adoption records.
The issue has prompted a number of state legislatures to work on proposals that would require presidential candidates to submit proof of their eligibility. And a similar proposal has been introduced in Congress by Rep. Bill Posey, R-Fla.
The Constitution, Article 2, Section 1, states, “No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President.”
However, none of the cases filed to date has been successful in reaching the plateau of legal discovery, so that information about Obama’s birth could be obtained.
The White House has not replied to numerous requests for comment.

The “certification of live birth” posted online and widely touted as “Obama’s birth certificate” does not in any way prove he was born in Hawaii, since the same “short-form” document is easily obtainable for children not born in Hawaii. The true “long-form” birth certificate – which includes information such as the name of the birth hospital and attending physician – is the only document that can prove Obama was born in Hawaii, but to date he has not permitted its release for public or press scrutiny.
