Being retired gives your Latter Day Iconoclast lots of time to do research. Being harassed by some right wing nutsack’s pals gives him the motivation. And just look at what a bit of good old fashioned investigative journalism dug up!
Upon further research on the fella doing the “aw shucks, ah’m just a po’ misunderstood country boy” act on WXIA-TV in Atlanta Tuesday, we’ve stumbled upon some disturbing allegations that Bill Looman of Waco, Ga., (the guy with the “no hiring until Obama’s gone” signs on his truck) may have been involved in an attempted takeover of a county courthouse in Madisonville, Tenn., on April 20, 2010
Now, before a complete review the evidence:
(Sorry, I have to leave it in all caps… that’s how he writes.)
PRIOR TO THE ELECTIONS OF 2008, I PAID CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE PRIMARIES. MY GUT INSTINCT WAS THAT OUR NEW (UNKNOWN) DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE WAS ACTUALLY A MUSLIM. A FOLLOWER OF ISLAM THAT DID NOT HAVE OUR COUNTRY’S BEST INTEREST IN MIND.
AFTER HIS ELECTION AND INAUGURATION, IT BECAME QUICKLY OBVIOUS, WITH THE RELEASE OF THE D. H. S. MEMO THAT STARTED RETRAINING THE AGENCIES PERSONNEL THAT VETERANS WERE LIKELY TO BE RECRUITED BY RIGHT WING FRINGE GROUPS. THAT MEMO WAS BLATANT AND OBVIOUS WRITTEN DOCUMENTATION THAT PROVED TO ME THAT THIS ADMINISTRATION WAS MOVING TOWARD TRYING TO CHANGE PUBLIC OPINION OF OUR MOST PATRIOTIC FACTION OF OUR SOCIETY AND PAINT THEM TO LOOK LIKE BAD PEOPLE THAT NEEDED TO BE FEARED BY LAW ENFORCEMENT AND EVENTUALLY THE REST OF THE COUNTRY. AS A MARINE VETERAN…….. I TOOK THAT AS AN INSULT!
THAT MEMO BY ITSELF, MAY VERY WELL HAVE BEEN A MINOR HICCUP FOR THE ADMINISTRATION, IF HIS GROUP OF APPOINTEES HAD NOT ALSO STARTED TO TRY AND WHITEWASH THE REPUTATION OF THE GROUP THAT HAD ATTACKED OUR NATION ON 9/11. HE STARTED DICTATING THAT ISLAM WAS A MISUNDERSTOOD AND PEACEFUL RELIGION, THAT 9/11 ATTACKS WERE NOT A VILE ATTACK BUT A “MAN MADE DISASTER”, AND THAT ISLAM WAS TO BE ASSIMILATED INTO OUR SOCIETY, WHETHER WE LIKED IT OR NOT.
HE ALSO ISSUED A SERIES OF EXECUTIVE ORDERS THAT MADE HIS HISTORICAL PRESENCE ON EARTH, OFF LIMITS TO THE PUBLIC AND SET THE PLAYING FIELD FOR EXECUTIVE RULE, BY HIM, THROUGH MARTIAL LAW. SIMILAR EXECUTIVE ORDERS WERE SIGNED BY JOHN F KENNEDY DURING THE “COLD WAR” ERA BECAUSE OF THE FEAR THAT RUSSIA AND THE UNITED STATES MAY ENGAGE IN A NUCLEAR EXCHANGE. THOSE SAME EXECUTIVE ORDERS WERE LATER SET ASIDE AS THE “COLD WAR” FEARS ABATED.
THOSE INITIAL STEPS THAT OUR NEW PRESIDENT TOOK, ALL PAINTED A PICTURE TO ME, THAT MADE IT OBVIOUS OF HIS TRUE INTENTIONS. FROM THAT POINT ON I PRAYED THAT I WAS WRONG AND JUST MISUNDERSTOOD WHAT HE WAS ATTEMPTING. THEN HE AND HIS ADMINISTRATION CONTINUED THAT HAMMER AMERICA WITH AND ONSLAUGHT OF LEGISLATION THAT WAS UNPOPULAR, ARROGANTLY INDICATED TO OUR LONG TIME ALLIES THAT HE COULD CARE LESS ABOUT OUR RELATIONSHIPS WITH THEM THAT HAD BEEN FORGED THROUGHOUT OUR HISTORY, AND HE WENT ON AN APOLOGY TOUR THROUGH THE MIDDLE EAST. HE ALSO DID ILLOGICAL THINGS SUCH AS SUE STATES IN HIS ATTEMPT TO KEEP THE SOUTHERN BORDERS OPEN FOR EASY ENTRY, SHUT DOWN PRODUCTION OF OIL OFF OF OUR SHORES, ATTEMPTED TO SLOW OUR ENERGY PRODUCTION THROUGH THE E. P. A. WHEN CAP AND TRADE LEGISLATION FAILED…. AND RUINED OUR ECONOMY ANY WAY HE COULD TO FURTHER BRING OUR COUNTRY TO ITS KNEES OR HUMBLE AMERICAN AND CHRISTIAN PRIDE.
JUST AFTER I READ EXECUTIVE ORDERS THAT HE HAD SIGNED, PUTTING IN PLACE POWERS THAT HE COULD EASILY ASSUME THROUGH MARTIAL LAW, I STARTED TO GET PREPARED. THE FOLLOWING LIST ARE SOME OF THE THINGS I HAVE DONE TO PREPARE MYSELF, MY FAMILY, MY COMMUNITY, AND YES….. EVEN MY HOME STATE OF GEORGIA.
START SEEKING AND NETWORKING WITH PATRIOTS OF LIKE MIND. SEEK OUT AND FORGE FRIENDSHIPS WITH SURVIVAL SKILLS. THIS INCLUDED GROUPS SUCH AS OATH KEEPERS, MILITIAS, AND POLITICAL GROUPS THAT APPEARED TO HAVE OUR FOUNDING FATHERS CORE MESSAGE AND CONSTITUTION IN THEIR BASIC PHILOSOPHY. BUILT AND STOCKED A FISH POND. STARTED STORING FOOD. SELLING WEAPONS THAT WERE COOL BUT WERE ODD CALIBERS AND WOULD BE HARD TO GET AMMUNITION FOR. BOUGHT NEW WEAPONS TO REPLACE THE ONES I SOLD AND STOCK PILED AMMUNITION. HONED MY HUNTING SKILLS AND LEARNED HOW TO COMPLETELY PROCESS ALL MY CATCH. PERFORMED NEEDED MAINTENANCE ON MY HOME. BECAME POLITICALLY ACTIVE IN MY COMMUNITY AND STARTED TO FORGE FRIENDSHIPS WITH OLD AND NEW FRIENDS THAT HAD SKILLS THAT MAY BE NEEDED IN THE FUTURE.
STARTED FURTHER TRAINING OTHERS AS THEY APPEARED WAKE UP TO PRESIDENTS PERCEIVED INTENTIONS WITH MARKSMANSHIP TRAINING, POLITICAL DISCUSSIONS, AND YES, EVEN RELIGIOUS DISCUSSIONS. DIVESTED IN STOCKS AND PURCHASED MORE PROPERTY. DIVESTED IN RETIREMENT FUNDS AND MOVED THE MONEY TO SAVINGS TO PROTECT AGAINST WALL STREET VOLATILITY.
PURCHASED AN EMERGENCY POWER SOURCE AND AND FUEL TO SUPPLY THAT SOURCE. THIS POWER SOURCE WILL BE USED TO DRAW WATER FROM OUR WELL AND KEEP OUR COLD STORAGE RUNNING FOR AS LONG AS FEASIBLE.
AS I OBSERVE THE FURTHER ACTIONS OF THIS ADMINISTRATION, I HAVE BECOME MORE SURE THAT MY “GUT INSTINCT” WAS CORRECT. I ALSO HAVE NEVER BEEN MORE ANGRY AT MYSELF FOR BEING RIGHT! WHY HAS HE TAKEN OUR COUNTRY IN THIS DIRECTION? MY ANSWER IS SIMPLE…….. HE HAS BEEN TRAINED FOR THIS AND HE IS A MARXIST/ISLAMIC TOOL TO TEAR APART OUR ONCE GREAT NATION.
SO IN LIGHT OF WHAT I HAVE WRITTEN, DONE FOR OVER 2 YEARS, I DARE YOU TO PREPARE AND PROTECT YOUR FAMILY, FRIENDS, AND COUNTRY. OUR FOUNDERS WOULD HAVE BEEN DONE BY NOW….. SO THE T SHIRT SAYS!
So, why was none of this explored in the all-encompassing expose by WXIA?
Here’s what we’ve managed to learn with a little applied Googling.
As fellow Examiner Radell Smith reported in October:
Dallas, Ga resident Darren Wesley Huff was convicted today by a jury of his peers for his role in the alleged takeover plot of a Monroe County Courthouse. Huff was ordered taken into custody immediately after the jury reached its verdict on Tuesday after the 8-women and 4-man jury veered towards a mistrial Monday afternoon. Sentencing for the 41-year-old Georgia “birther” will take place in February, according to CBS News.
Huff came to the attention of law enforcement after bragging to a Chase Bank teller that he and fellow militiamen were planning to pay a visit to Monroe County Courthouse, where fellow milita and retired Navy man Walter Fitzpatrick had failed to secure an indictment against Pres. Barack Obama.
We’ve found indications that Looman and other members of his Northern Georgia Militia (see attached photo) were with Duff that day, but cut and ran when they saw the cops.
The Monroe County Courthouse takeover in Tennessee was to be attempted on April 20 of 2010, but Huff and the 12 militia men with him did not follow through after it was apparent that as many as 100 law enforcement officers were waiting for them in the Tennesse town.
According to the Knoxville News Sentinel, while the takeover did not occur, prosecutors still contend that Darren Huff’s words five days earlier to the bank employees – coupled with his actually traveling to Monroe County with two weapons and 300 rounds of ammunition speaks for itself, despite a strong law enforcement presence that disuaded Huff and his fellow militiamen from acting.
Apparently, Looman was one of Huff’s 12 “apostles of hatred.”
This comes from a right wing online newsletter, the Post and E-Mail, dated June 16, 2011.
Fitzpatrick then sent The Post & Email the following additional recollections of April 20, 2010:
The law enforcement presence was like a kicked over hill of red fire ants.
Easily over 200 uniformed police.
There was a platoon strength contingent of police/agents in the courtroom.
Unknown in number but obvious and ubiquitous plain close officers/agents (ear pieces, wires, weapon bulges).
Monroe County Sheriff’s tactically deployed (CAMOs every where).
Tennessee State Troopers.
Many K9 units from various agencies.
The Monroe County Courthouse (two blocks away) was swarming. Federal Agents at that location.
Police/Sheriff’s cruisers everywhere, circulating the streets as sharks roam and converge on a meal.
Sergeant of Marines Bill Looman reports two helos spotted as an airborne umbrella.
Fitzpatrick is the person who attempted to secure an indictment against President Obama. If “Sergeant of Marines Bill Looman” was not there on April 20, 2010, how in the world could he report helicopter sightings?
Apparently, these actions got him kicked out of the Oathkeeper’s organization.
He received this e-mail from a fellow Oath Keeper asking him to keep his Georgia nose out of Tennessee business.
Bill: Darren’s email is not in the data base, please forward.
I am asking you as a conservative and person interested in advocating for restoration of the Constitution to refrain from further potentially inflammatory activity in the Fitzpatrick trial in Monroe County, TN. Your recent appearance in Madisonville did nothing but corroborate what the local residents and police had hypothesized. Schools were put on standby and municipal offices were closed in anticipation of what turned out to be a non-event or would have been if it had not been for your traffic stop. I do not find your video going beyond CFP and WND to the main stream but it is likely that it will. The “militia” truck and your presence with pistol and assault rifle is the stuff that main stream hysteria is built on. The Fitzpatrick trial is based in the “birther” movement so is not the best venue to make a stand but when the main stream spins your portrayal of the right wing radical, that effort will be dead and the good folks who supported it will crawl away with their tails between their legs. I am pleading with you not to lend your presence to the Madisonville effort on May 4th.
TO ALL THAT SHALL SEE THESE PRESENTS…..GREETINGS:
I am a little bit disturbed by the events that have been stirring [last night].
I have been made aware that because of my actions surrounding the events that are occurring in Madisonville, TN that I am pending, what I term, a discharge from Oath Keepers.
I feel that I am being considered a rogue. If I am relieved, I will consider this an insult somewhat.
I will not be portrayed as being stupid, ill informed, and a coward.
If this is the path they decide to take then it is my thought that I will support my right to defend the Constitution.I will actually move forward to reach out to active duty Marines, Veterans, and our brothers in the Navy to move forward in the salvation of our country.
It is their right to do whatever they deem is necessary to protect their agenda. Good Luck in your endeavors.
I will put forth an alternative group that will not slander the proud message of OATH KEEPERS in any way, but will build on that message. That message should always be left unstained!
I served my country proudly and will continue to do so as long as our Lord will allow me to breath air on this earth.
Semper Fi and Godspeed,
PS Goodnight my friend Rex
All of this apparently earned Looman a visit from the Secret Service, which caused him to make changes in some of his alliances. The slideshow includes a screencap from the North Georgia Militia (you can find them at [email protected]). Looman scrubbed himself from the Milita’s Facebook page after the Secret Service visit.
“SOME PEOPLE GOTTA DIE!”
Four members of an unnamed North Georgia militia planned to attack cities including Atlanta with deadly ricin, bomb federal buildings and murder law enforcement officials and others, according to charges leveled yesterday.
The four elderly men were arrested after a lengthy investigation that began last March, when a confidential informant began secretly recording the group’s conversations. The man described as the group’s leader, 73-year-old Frederick Thomas, was recorded at a meeting that month allegedly saying, “There’s no way for us, as militiamen, to save this country, to save Georgia, without doing something that’s highly illegal – murder. … When it comes to saving the Constitution, that means some people gotta die.”
Looman is also listed as a member of a Facebook group called 100,000 strong for armed rebellion if the traitor is re-elected! But the Secret Service visit apparently got that website scrubbed as well.
His involvement with the “Beaver Run Landowners Association” merits its own website. Check it out for an education in sleaze.
But now, at least I understand why he won’t answer my questions. A Marine lives by the code, “no man left behind.” When Looman and his confederates apparently cut and ran in the face of strong police presence during the courthouse takeover plot, he apparently left Fitzpatrick and Huff to face the music he didn’t have the courage of his convictions to face himself.
It’s hardly surprising that he would lie to a nice little TV station and hide behind supporters instead of facing questions.
