Charles H. Kable, IV Named Special Agent in Charge of Counterintelligence Division of the Washington Field Office
Washington, D.C. December 09, 2015        

FBI National Press Office (202) 324-3691

FBI Director James B. Comey has named Charles H. Kable, IV as the special agent in charge of the Counterintelligence Division at the Washington Field Office.

Coup still shares laughs after 75 years together

Published: Saturday, December 12, 2015 at 1:00 p.m.
Last Modified: Friday, December 4, 2015 at 3:14 p.m.

For the past 75 years, Phil and Bea Stewart have shared love, laughter and happiness.

While sharing their 70th wedding anniversary Dec. 1, they reflected on what has kept them together.

“Glue,” Bea said, jokingly.

The couple met in the ninth grade when they were 14 years old in Detroit.

“We grew up together, really,” Bea said. “It was a different world then. There were rules and restrictions, and we lived by them.”

The two married right out of high school while Bea was attending Wayne University on a full scholarship, and Phil enlisted in the Navy. He attended the same university after serving in World War II on a Navy destroyer ship performing anti-submarine sonar maneuvers.

“I do – those two little words meant something. Divorce – you didn't even spell it back then. People were just together forever,” Bea said.

After two years of teaching, Phil left the profession when his brother suggested that he become an FBI agent. He did that for 29 years.

“We thought, 'Oh this is great, we will travel the world,' but we ended up in Baltimore

The FBI Agents That Arrested Martin Shkreli Are Pretty Hot
NextShark-22 hours ago
The two FBI agents flanking the 32-year-old CEO of Turing Pharmaceuticals in arrest photos have been singled out for their good looks and tailored suits.



Texas: In February, 2004, John Conditt Jr., 53, the former head of the FBI's internal affairs unit at the Office of Professional Responsibility was sentenced to 12 years in prison in Tarrant County court after he admitted molesting the daughters of two FBI agents after he retired in 2001. Conditt had been an FBI agent for more than 30 years before retiring. A retired FBI whistleblower said she had brought allegations of child abuse on Indian reservations to Conditt's attention and the FBI had not aggressively pursued the allegations. She now questions whether having a pedophile in charge of an FBI office would influence how aggressively child abuse charges were investigated.


FBI kept quiet about sexual relationship between agent, star witness in Jefferson trial

As the corruption case against former Rep. William Jefferson was about to go to trial in June, prosecutors learned from their star witness that she had had a sexual relationship with the undercover FBI agent who drove her to all the meetings where she secretly taped and delivered cash to the New Orleans Democrat.

william-jefferson.JPGMichael DeMocker / The Times-PicayuneOn Monday, Judge T.S. Ellis III denied a request by Jefferson's lawyers for a new trial, a request based in part on defense claims that Ellis erred in not letting them bring up Lori Mody's relationship with an FBI agent at trial.

But according to court documents unsealed last week, the FBI and its Office of Professional Responsibility knew at least as far back as last December that the agent, John Guandolo, "had had an intimate relationship with a confidential source that he thought could damage an investigation." But they never passed that information to the U.S. attorney's office prosecuting Jefferson or the lead FBI agent in the investigation.

The failure to provide the court and the prosecutors with such explosive information raises questions about FBI conduct, even as the revelation about Guandolo's relationship with Lori Mody, the northern Virginia businesswoman at the center of the Jefferson probe, adds a new layer of intrigue to the case.

It also shows how the actions of a single agent could have wrecked the long and meticulous Justice Department pursuit of Jefferson. Mody did not testify at the trial, but the tapes she secretly recorded were allowed to be played for the jury and were a key to the conviction of the nine-term congressman on 11 of 16 corruption charges.

"This is just unbelievable, " said George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley, who has followed the case closely. "If the FBI was aware that an agent had an improper relationship with a confidential source, it is information that should have been disclosed to the court."

"It's very disturbing, " said Harvey Silverglate, a Boston lawyer and author of a recent book critical of the federal law enforcement. "First of all, an agent shouldn't be having an affair with a government informant. And if it does happen, of course it must be disclosed because it could affect the credibility of the informant and the individual agent and investigation."

FBI agent resigns

Guandolo resigned from the FBI on or about Dec. 1, before the bureau's Office of Professional Responsibility could question him about his sexual liaisons with Mody, as well as with women FBI agents, relationships detailed in a document Guandolo had prepared.

FBI spokesmen at the Washington, D.C., field office and at national headquarters said Friday that they could not comment on personnel matters. William Carter of the FBI National Press Office said he had brought the question of why the FBI did not pass along what they knew about Guandolo to the federal court, to the FBI's Office of General Counsel for their review.

On Friday, Guandolo declined to go beyond a statement he gave to the FBI on June 7, in which he expressed his "deep remorse" for his sexual relationship with Mody, and his hope that it wouldn't damage the case against Jefferson.

After Mody told prosecutors of her relationship with Guandolo, the government announced that they would not call her as a witness and scrambled to have the lead FBI agent in the case provide the testimony to establish the surveillance tapes.

On Monday, Judge T.S. Ellis III denied a request by Jefferson's lawyers for a new trial, a request based in part on defense claims that Ellis erred in not letting them bring up Mody's relationship with Guandolo at trial. After sentencing Oct. 30, fter sentencing Oct. 30, the defense is expected to appeal Ellis' decision to deny a new trial.

Chance of appeal

Turley and other expert observers said that defense chances of a successful appeal based on the new information are slim. But Turley said that Guandolo's brazen behavior in such a high-profile case raises questions about the "FBI culture, " especially in light of somewhat similar claims in the botched prosecution of former Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens.

Stevens was convicted of corruption last October, but on Dec. 2 -- right when Guandolo was leaving the FBI -- one of two FBI agents assigned to the Stevens case filed a complaint suggesting, among other things, that there has been an "inappropriate relationship" between Mary Beth Kepner, the lead FBI agent in the case, and the key government witness, Bill Allen. Earlier this year, Attorney General Eric Holder dropped the charges against Stevens.

Ellis ruled that Guandolo's relationship with Mody was irrelevant, and telling the jurors would have had a "prejudicial" effect on their deliberations.

But, Turley said, "the judge was very forthcoming with the government in allowing highly damaging and personal facts about Jefferson to go before the jury, including the fact that he had slept over at the house of a female aide." The aide said they slept in separate rooms.

The relationship between Guandolo and Mody is all the more stunning because she was described as being a volatile and vulnerable figure, especially in her relationships with men.

'Mild intimacy'

According to a statement from Mody included in the unsealed document, she and Guandolo engaged in "mild intimacy" in New Orleans in April 2005, and that on subsequent occasions Guandolo made "inappropriate sexual advances" in a car, at her townhouse and at her parents' home. On one occasion, she said, he was "overly aggressive" but she fended him off. Then once or twice, between late April and the end of May 2005, they had consensual sex.

lori-mody.JPGLori Mody

On May 12, 2005, Mody and Jefferson shared a four-hour dinner at which she talked to Jefferson about her problems with men while Guandolo, posing as her driver, waited in the car.

According to the law enforcement Web site "Tickle the Wire, " the FBI learned of Guandolo's misbehavior because he had, on the advice of his therapist, made a list of his sexual affairs so he could better see the damage he had done to his marriage.

Asked how the list came into the hands of FBI officials, Guandolo said Friday, "it's a lot simpler than you think." He did not elaborate.

At his last meeting with Mody, in early 2006, after the Jefferson investigation had ended, Guandolo, a counter-terrorism expert in the FBI, asked her to contribute $75,000 to one of several anti-terrorist organizations.

Since leaving the bureau, Guandolo has been writing and speaking about the Islamic terrorist threat in America, which he has said the leadership in the FBI is being inadequately aggressive in combating

Ex-FBI agent wants to serve jail time in style
Jan. 6, 1988

AUGUSTA, Maine -- A retired FBI agent serving nine months in jail for sexually abusing a 12-year-old girl is asking to serve a subsequent house-arrest term at an Idaho apartment complex with a swimming pool, tennis court and jacuzzi.

John H. Kenoyer, 65, who retired from the FBI a decade ago after serving 30 years, made the motion in a handwritten letter to a SuperiorCourt judge, who scheduled a hearing for today.

In his letter to Judge Donald Alexander, Kenoyer said the move would allow him to 'get away from the scene of all my troubles ... (and) to alleviate the arthritis in my hip by living in a climate that is much drier and milder than Maine.'

Kenoyer, who once jumped bail, said he would also like to live away from the woman to whom he was engaged to marry at the time of his conviction.

Kenoyer of Winthrop is expected to be released from jail next month, when his nine-month sentence for the assault on a young girl in his neighborhood ends. But then, he must serve a two-year period of house arrest -- a confinement that is not in a jail or prison but in private quarters.

He said he hopes to spend those years at the Lake Villa Apartments in Coeur D'Alene, Idaho, where he lived as a fugitive prior to his arrest last February. The apartment complex has a swimming pool, jacuzzi and tennis court.

District Attorney David Crook said he did not plan to object to Kenoyer's request.

'I think it is a reasonable request, provided all the other conditions of probation are met,' Crook said. 'I think it is pretty routine.'

Kenoyer was indicted in March 1986 but later jumped bail and disappeared until last February.

10 Jan 2016

Famed attorney Alan Dershowitz has retained former President Bill Clinton’s FBI director to help show Clinton was not present at alleged sex orgies thrown by his former client, a convicted pedophile and close Clinton friend.

Clinton’s friendship with a convicted child sex predator, Jeffrey Epstein, again is coming under increased scrutiny, thanks in part to a recent civil lawsuit for defamation filed in Florida against Dershowitz by representatives for two of Epstein’s alleged victims. Dershowitz served as Epstein’s lawyer during Epstein’s criminal criminal.

Not only has Bill Clinton’s name come up in the court proceedings, but Dershowitz, one of the key figures in the case, says that he cannot conclusively deny that Clinton was present at lavish sex orgies thrown on a Caribbean island by Epstein. What’s more, one of the victims said that Bill Clinton in fact was present at an Epstein island orgy.

Epstein pleaded guilty in 2008 to soliciting prostitution from a minor. Though he was represented at trial by Dershowitz, he still had to serve 13 months in prison on an 18-month sentence.

Flight logs also connect Clinton as they show he made multiple trips on Epstein’s private plane, including a September 2002 jaunt to Africa with actor buddies Kevin Spacey and Chris Tucker. So does Epstein accuser Virginia Roberts, who claimed that she was used as a sex slave by Epstein and his friends, said that she met Bill Clinton on one of his trips with Epstein when she was only seventeen, but that she did not have sex with him.

Super-lawyer and Clinton and Epstein pal Dershowitz recently testified in circuit court in Broward County, Florida. Transcripts of his testimony reveal that Clinton administration FBI chief Louis Freeh has been called in to run interference. Freeh served as FBI director from 1993 to 2001, during almost the entirety of the Clinton presidency.

Freeh is representing Dershowitz , who recently has been at the center of civil claims involving allegations that he had sex with underage women on Epstein’s private plane and at parties on Epstein’s private island, including at times when Clinton also was on the island.

“Well, we have made a Freedom of Information request,” Dershowitz testified. “My — my attorney in New York, Louis Freeh, the former head of the FBI, has made a FOIA request for all information

Are the documents Phil Eil is requesting from the DEA public?

January 22, 2016

philIf you follow Phil Eil on social media you’ve surely heard about his public records request of the DEA. Eil is working on a book about Paul Volkman, a doctor who was convicted to four consecutive life sentences for dealing drugs under the guise of writing medicine prescriptions.

Eil has requested from the DEA all the evidence presented at the trial, he says he’s requested more than 200 pieces of evidence that the DEA has interpreted as 15,000 pages of documents. The trial ended in May of 2011 and Eil filed his FOIA request in February, 2012.

Is Eil getting the run-around from the feds? He told me an FBI agent subpoenaed him as a witness during the trial and he wonders if that was a ploy to keep him from covering the trial as a journalist. Or is he requesting documents that aren

FBI agent faces gun-possession trial

Updated Tuesday, March 22nd 2016 at 10:48 GM
FBI Agent Richardson Clyde Roller and Mercy Shirley Mwendwa at Mombasa Court.

A former Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agent was Monday charged in Mombasa, alongside his wife, with illegal possession of firearms.

Richard Clyde Rollier (left) and his Kenyan wife Mercy Shirley Mwendwa, who were arrested on Saturday, were charged with possession of two stun guns without lawful authority.

They denied the charges when they appeared before Chief Magistrate Susan Shitubi and were released on a Sh500,000 bond with a similar surety.

The two were arrested while at their home in Nyali, Mombasa, according to police records.

The magistrate directed the American to deposit his passport with the court and report to the Anti-Terrorism Police Unit (ATPU) once a month.

"Considering your citizenship, you shall deposit your passport with the court and report to the ATPU once per month," directed Ms Shitubi.

Prosecutor Sarah Ogweno opposed bail, saying the American was likely to leave the court's jurisdiction if freed pending trial.

"If the accused is granted bail, he should report to the CID offices in Mombasa and go to the ATPU," said Ms Ogweno.

According to the police reports, the American was arrested for the second time in a month over the alleged importation of banned goods.

The retired FBI agent, who came to Kenya 11 years ago, has been under police investigation for possession of explosives.

FBI Trying to Sneak In Ability to Access Emails Without Court Order
An attempt to secretly expand what can be gathered with National Security Letters

|May. 26, 2016 4:55 pm

Right now Congress is attempting to hammer out rules that would eliminate an old loophole that permits the government and law enforcement to get access to Americans' old emails with a simple court subpoena instead of a warrant.

But at the same time, the FBI is trying to write up special new rules that would let them use a National Security Letter (NSL) to get access to email records without any sort of court order.

NSLs are secret orders that allow the government under the PATRIOT Act to not just demand data from Internet and telecom companies about specific users but also to legally gag these companies from communicating any information about their existence. Currently, NSLs can get all sorts of information and metadata (like phone records) that way, but not emails. The 2017 Intelligence Authorization Act would change the rules. Senate Intelligence Committee leaders Richard Burr (R-N.C.) and Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), originators of proposed encryption legislation that would utterly destroy everybody's cybersecurity, put out a statement in support of the legislation, which passed a committee vote.

There was one dissenter, Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) who has been the primary voice in that committee against unwarranted surveillance. CNet takes note of his response and warning:

But Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), the lone dissenting voice on the 15-member Senate committee, vowed to work on reversing the "dangerous provisions."

"This bill takes a hatchet to important protections for Americans' liberty," he said in a statement. "This bill would mean more government surveillance of Americans, less due process and less independent oversight of US intelligence agencies. Worse, neither the intelligence agencies, nor the bill's sponsors have shown any evidence that these changes would do anything to make Americans more secure."

Jenna McLaughlin at The Intercept has more about the FBI's lengthy efforts to try to use NSLs to secretly access email communications here.

Note that the FBI is now taking some hits by judges over its insistence on secrecy. Yesterday a federal judge tossed out evidence the FBI had collected in a child pornography case because they refused to reveal to the defense the tools that they had used to exploit Tor to track pedophiles, even if that information was kept


Did the CIA Help Kill Mexican Journalist Manuel Buendia?

Published 25 May 2016
Compartir Facebook WhatsApp Twitter Google+
Manuel Buendia was the most influential investigative journalist in Mexico, exposing state corruption, organized crime and the drug trade.
Manuel Buendia was walking to the parking lot where he used to park his car everyday in the center of Mexico City, but on May 30, 1984, a hired killer was waiting for him. He was shot and killed, taking four bullets in the back. 

At the time Buendía was the most influential investigative journalist in Mexico, his column Red Privada ("Private Network")—which exposed state corruption and took on organized crime—distributed and read in over 200 newspapers across Mexico.

Impunity Is The Beast That Keeps Killing Journalists in Mexico

But his influence cost him his life, his killing coming after he uncovered links between Mexico's federal police agency, the CIA and long-time fugitive drug lord Rafael Caro Quintero. His murder is known as the “first crime of narcopolitics,” and for five years it went unpunished.

The case was handled by Jose Antonio Zorrilla Pérez, then the head of the infamous Federal Security Directorate (DFS), which led the “dirty war," persecuting political dissidents between 1960 and 1980. Dubbed “the Mexican FBI,” the directorate was abolished in 1985.

Zorrilla, later accused of masterminding the murder of Buendia, was the first to arrive at the murder scene and paid for the journalist's funeral. According to later investigations, however, Zorrilla had ordered the collection of all the evidence from Buendia’s office, including documents that tied Zorrilla to drug traffickers and the CIA, which was operating in Mexico by training Guatemalan guerrillas in the west state of Jalisco at a ranch owned by Caro Quintero.

Killed Journalist in Mexico Made the Powerful Uncomfortable

The relationship between Zorrilla and the most powerful drug kingpin of the 1980s was quite close. When Caro Quintero fled to Costa Rica in 1985, he was traveling with a safe-conduct pass signed by the police head.

Zorrilla’s agents arrested 10 young “porros” (state-sanctioned thugs) and accused them of murdering Buendia. However, this story fell apart in 1990, when Zorrilla was himself charged with the crime and sentenced to 25 years in prison along with Juan Rafael Moro Avila Camacho, the alleged hitman and grandson of former president Manuel Avila Camacho, both are free now. 

However, some colleagues of Buendia claim the CIA was also interested in silencing the journalist, especially after he wrote his book "The CIA in Mexico," in which he tied various fascist organizations to the U.S. spy agency, which helped the Mexican far right combat leftists up until the early 1990s. 

Hector Berrellez, a former DEA supervisor and special agent who served in Mexico in the 1980s, told Xinhua last year that the CIA killed Buendia, claiming that the order came from the then-Interior Minister Manuel Bartlett.

Jennifer Barnett, 38, of Pocatello, was charged with destruction, alteration or concealment of evidence.

Barnett is the head of building security at the FBI office in Pocatello.

Sixth District Magistrate Rick Carnaroli dismissed the charge without prejudice, meaning that the state can refile charges against Barnett in the future.

During the preliminary hearing Wednesday, Barnett was represented by Aaron Thompson of May Rammell and Thompson law firm, and Deputy Prosecutor Ashley Graham argued the state’s case against Barnett.

Pocatello Detective Niko Gordon was the first to testify Wednesday.

Gordon said he was investigating a report that involved Barnett’s husband, David Phillips, 41, and Barnett’s 17-year-old daughter.

According to the report, the victim was made to stand in her underwear in front of two male friends and Phillips for four minutes. Then she was forced to stand naked for an additional five minutes as punishment for bad grades.

The incident was reported by another high school student.

Gordon said he interviewed the victim and witnesses in the case and then contacted Barnett.

The detective said he informed Barnett that he was investigating inappropriate sexual contact between Philip and the underage victim and that it was possibly a criminal investigation.

Following an interview with the victim and Barnett at Bright Tomorrows Child Advocacy Center on May 4, Gordon said a safety plan was developed, and he instructed Barnett to not discuss the case with her husband.

On May 11, Gordon said he obtained a search warrant to examine all electronic devices in the home. However, investigators discovered that two computer towers had recen


FBI Octopus


Espinosa, a former FBI agent, federal prosecutor and trial judge appointed to the high court by Malloy in 2013, suggested the re-examination of the Santiago decision was a farce.

"Dismissing the state’s arguments in the present case in a per curiam opinion creates the appearance that the outcome was predisposed, and that oral argument was allowed merely to avoid the perception that the state was being treated unfairly," Espinosa wrote. "Indeed, Mark Rademacher, the assistant public defender who argued this appeal, stated that the purpose of granting the state’s motion for oral argument was  ‘[to make] the state feel good about losing.’ ’’

Aberration in the Heartland of the Real: The Secret Lives of Timothy McVeigh by Wendy S. Painting, PhD

I'm about 150 pages into this and it's must reading.  There are four to six paragraphs in the prologue that provide an overview for all crimes of the deep state that are simply some of the best stuff written ...  Her next work is based on the research ... and it's obvious she's become an expert in investigative research .. of a previous writer who went to ground after she discovered some things.

In memory of Vince Foster who cannot rest in peace
By World Tribune on October 30, 201

Allegations of cover-up by lead investigator

Kenneth Starr’s at-the-time lead investigator, US attorney Miguel Rodriguez,[8] emphatically disagreed with Starr’s conclusion that Foster committed suicide, referring to photographs and medical testimony suggesting a second gunshot wound on Foster’s neck, evidence he asserts Starr suppressed.[9] Concerning the cover-up, he wrote in his resignation letter, “As an ethical person, I don’t believe I could be involved in what they were doing.”[10]

Other theories

James Norman, former senior editor at Forbes Magazine, discussed[11] and wrote about Vince Foster having a Swiss bank account and possible espionage.[12] An FBI interview report by agent Russell Bransford and a handwritten note from the Office of Independent Counsel found at the National Archives refer to Vincent Foster’s Swiss bank account.[13]

The comments of Patrick Knowlton, a grand jury witness who had been at the park where Foster’s body was found, were included as part of Starr’s Report over Starr’s objection. Judge John D. Butzner wrote to Judges Peter Fay and David Sentelle after Knowlton submitted a motion that his comments be included as part of an appendix to the final report, “I suspect that if we deny this motion we will be charged as conspirators in the cover-up,” and concluded “I suggest we let the motion and attachments speak for themselves.”[14] Judge Peter Fay wrote that Knowlton contradicted “specific factual matters and takes issue with the very basics of the report” filed by Kenneth Starr.[15] Knowlton’s comments were ordered[16]included as part of the official report on September 26, 1997. Two days later, Kenneth Starr filed a 9-page motion[17] to appeal that the comments by Knowlton not be included in the report. The next day, Starr’s motion was denied[18] and Knowlton’s comments were included as part of the final official Report on the Death of Vincent W. Foster.[19]

John H. Clarke, attorney for Patrick Knowlton, argued that by using the FBI, the Office of Independent Counsel employed “the very agency it [was] designed to be independent from, the Justice Department.”[20] Clark further stated “The investigation under the auspices of…Mr. Fiske was little more than an FBI investigation. Publicly available official federal government records indicate that throughout the 16-day U.S. Park Police investigation into the case, FBI participation was significant.[21] Attorney Clarke’s letter argues, “The publicly available federal government record upon which the Fiske Report is based is replete with evidence that the FBI concealed the true facts surrounding Mr. Foster’s death.”[22]

The Arkansas Project

On May 2, 1999, the Washington Post published new details on the pursuit of a Vincent Foster conspiracy in an article by David Brock, a key figure in the Troopergate and Whitewater scandals whose disillusionment with the political corruption motivating what would come to be known as the Arkansas Project ended his lifelong commitment to the Conservative movement and facilitated public dissemination of insider details on G.O.P. machinations. The article explains how Brock was “summoned” to a meeting with Rex Armistead in Miami, Florida at an airport hotel. Brock claims that Armistead laid out for him an elaborate “Vince Foster murder scenario” – a scenario that he found implausible.[23]

In an interview for Salon.com in 2000, Brock also revealed that he and Armistead received funding throughout Clinton’s two terms in office from Richard Scaife for the initiative known as the Arkansas Project.[24] The Project aimed to discredit the sitting president and first lady through investigations into a range of issues that could potentially prove problematic for the couple, from rehashed drug smuggling allegations to their long-standing relationship with Foster and other professionals/officials in Arkansas.

Another prominent reporter to have received funds from Scaife was Christopher W. Ruddy[25] – a former writer for the Scaife-owned Pittsburgh Tribune-Review (and later founder of NewsMax). Eventually, Scaife became the third-largest stockholder of Ruddy’s Newsmax;[26] and both NewsMax and the WorldNetDaily continued to publish materials that showed the Clintons in a negative light.[27]

Ruddy also enjoyed the backing of Joseph Farah and Farah’s organization, the Western Journalism Center. This group supplied him with “additional expense money, funding for Freedom of Information Act requests, legal support and publicity” around his book deal & the requisite research into a conspiracy surrounding Foster’s death.[28] He published his findings in 1997 under the title The Strange Death of Vincent Foster (pub. Simon & Schuster).[29] In the book, he discusses mistakes and transgressions that occurred in the original investigations – in particular, alleged obstruction of justice by White House Counsel Bernard Nussbaum – but stops short of positing an original theory on the circumstances surrounding Foster’s death.

Distracted by Election 2016, No-one Resisted the Deep State’s Patriot Act 2

Nathaniel Mauka, Staff Writer
Waking Times

Congress overwhelmingly voted for the Patriot Act nearly 16 years ago, and our civil liberties have never been the same since. As if this singular bill, passed by George W. Bush, wasn’t invasive enough, allowing big banks to demand our internet data, and more — the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA) makes cyber-spying by the shadow government and the financial entities controlling it, a forgone conclusion.

As with most shadow government legislation, the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act is packed with hidden surveillance allowances. CISA was quietly passed to allow government to demand that private companies hand over personal information to them at will. It also allows companies to mine data, under the auspices of government-created urgency.

The mere fact that this act passed in late 2015 is monumental, since it has been before Congress in different forms for over a decade. The election seems to have offered the perfect cover, as Americans and activists were too busy arguing over Trump vs. Hillary.

Scott Talbott, senior vice president of government relations at the Electronic Transactions Association believes the value of sharing our personal data as a means to be alerted of ‘cyber threats’ outweighs any hazard to our civil liberties. Talbott states,

“The value is that everyone can be alerted to cyber threats and take precautionary countermeasures before they materialize and spread,” he said. “Before CISA, corrective measures could be taken only after the cyber threat had done its damage. CISA allows each company to serve as an early warning system to the entire economy.”

Who exactly would be determining if someone is a ‘threat’ is the meat of the sandwich, though. CISA is ripe for abuse, just as the Patriot Act has been.

The Patriot Act has made it legal for law enforcement to spy on people, without probable cause – to enter their homes, or even to strip search them before they’ve been to court, had the opportunity to argue a case, or given ‘authorities’ a motive for this type of interrogation.

The stated purpose of the Patriot Act was to deter terrorist acts in the United States, but what do you do when the terrorists have already taken over your country? CISA simply expands the reach of a shadow government which has already been proven to reach beyond the boundaries of constitutional law.

More importantly, who specifically is CISA targeting? After multiple hack­ers have in­filt­rated com­puter sys­tems at the White House, the State De­part­ment, the Pentagon, and the Of­fice of Per­son­nel Man­age­ment, along with the Democratic National Committee, and numerous multinational banks run by the cabal, is the shadow government simply

Why Oregon Standoff Verdicts Set Dangerous and Far-Reaching Precedent
Malheur acquittals raise stakes for next year’s trial in Nevada and beyond
byTaylor McKinnon

I was nearly killed earlier this year while counter-protesting the paramilitary seizure of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon. After accusing me of being an FBI agent, the armed occupiers there worked themselves into a mob. Hog-faced militia thugs barked, “he’s a fed.” Some pawed their pistols. I was told snipers were trained on us. It was dangerously close to violence.

"The cradling of the Bundy’s media circus at Malheur, and the government’s over-confident bungling of the ensuing prosecution—sets a dangerous and far-reaching precedent for the kind of paramilitary intimidation and right-wing violence that underpins their movement."
For weeks last January a small rag-tag group of public lands supporters protested the Malheur occupiers. There was a handful of us, and dozens of them—all 30 miles from the nearest law enforcement. We crashed press conferences, staged counter protests, and marched into their occupied barracks with signs. We were threatened, harassed, blasted with bull horns and trailed by thugs with assault rifles.

We saw first-hand what was live-streamed to the world: An illegal paramilitary seizure of one of the crown jewels of our national wildlife refuge system, and the months-long social, cultural, economic, and environmental terrorization of an entire community. So, like many others, I was jarred by last Thursday’s acquittal of seven defendants: How could such an obvious, video-taped crime could go unpunished? Here’s how: Federal fumbling.

The Bundy clan and their followers peddle a dangerous brand of radicalism. Their core ideas—that the federal government lacks authority to own public land, and that county sheriffs are the highest form of law enforcement—are rooted in hard-right racist ideologies created to sidestep federal civil rights laws by elevating local authority. They’re perfectly suited to ranchers, like Cliven Bundy, who refused to pay deeply subsidized federal grazing fees.

After Cliven Bundy’s 2014 Nevada standoff—where militia thugs with assault rifles stood down federal officials corralling Cliven’s illegally-grazing cows—the Obama administration did nothing. The standoff was a big win for anti-government militants, and in the two years following, facing no arrests or federal enforcement, the movement grew, spawning the Malheur seizure last winter.

"It’s a stepping stone toward fascism, not nonviolent civil disobedience."
There, the kids-gloves stayed on. Militants were free to come and go from the refuge. They visited town, harassed locals, and crashed community meetings armed. They held press conferences, trenched Burns Paiute sacred sites, and shook hands with the FBI in front of news cameras. And because refuge employees were told to stay home, the jury could cynically find that the lynchpin charge in the government’s boldly-narrow prosecution—that occupiers had conspired to impede federal employees from doing their jobs—wasn’t supported by evidence.

All of this—the federal inaction following the Nevada standoff, the cradling of the Bundy’s media circus at Malheur, and the government’s over-confident bungling of the ensuing prosecution—sets a dangerous and far-reaching precedent for the kind of paramilitary intimidation and right-wing violence that underpins their movement. Social change in America depends on nonviolent civil disobedience, like the brutal struggles of indigenous activists in North Dakota and Black Lives Matter activists throughout the U.S. But right-wing paramilitary intimidation is different. It’s a stepping stone toward fascism, not nonviolent civil disobedience. Its rise should concern anyone who cares about America’s public lands, civil rights, and a political system that refuses to be bullied by violenc

American Express disowns Pink Floyd singer Roger Waters because of pro-Palestinian views

Roger Waters
     
When it comes to aiding Israeli Apartheid, American Express is just another brick in The Wall, according to a new report.

Roger Waters, lead singer behind Pink Floyd, lost a multimillion dollar American Express sponsorship for his 2017 US+Them tour after expressing solidarity this month with Palestinian students trying to end Israel’s apartheid system of military occupation using the same protest tactic that helped dismantle South African Apartheid (and, earlier, America’s Jim Crow): Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions, or BDS.

“I’m going to send out all of my most heartfelt love and support to all those young people on the campuses of the universities of California who are standing up for their brothers and sisters in Palestine and supporting the BDS movement,” Rogers said, according to CBS News, “in the hope that we may encourage the government of Israel to end the occupation.”

American Express decided it would be a good idea to leak the cancellation of the contract to the New York Post, where Page Six’s Emily Smith has the exclusive story.

“Roger is putting on a huge show. The company was asked to sponsor his tour for $4 million, but pulled out because it did not want to be part of his anti-Israel rhetoric,” an American Express spokesman told the paper. “We never committed to sponsoring Roger Waters’ upcoming tour. When we were approached with the options, w

Pacific Northwest threatened by hottest weather ever recorded; Seattle could hit 100
By Jason Samenow August 2 at 4:19 PM

Excessive heat warnings blanket the western third of Northern California, Oregon and Washington state. High temperatures just inland from coastal locations are forecast to soar to between 100 and 110 degrees.

“We are talking about one of the major sustained heat waves in a long time around here,” writes Cliff Mass, professor of meteorology at the University of Washington. He said that “there is a lot of confidence” temperatures will at least reach the mid-90s in Seattle and notes the GFS model projects a high of 100 on Thursday — a reading he can’t “remember ever seeing”.

NAACP issues travel advisory for Missouri in wake of police brutality incidents, passage of ‘Jim Cr

Wednesday, August 2, 2017, 8:18 AM

The NAACP has adopted a travel advisory for Missouri, the first of its kind issued in the organization’s 108-year history.

The warning to travelers comes after several high-profile police brutality assaults on black residents in the last few years as well as a new “Jim Crow Bill” that makes it harder to sue for discrimination.

“The advisory is for people to be aware, and warn their families and friends and co-workers of what could happen in Missouri,” Rod Chapel, president of the Missouri NAACP, told the Kansas City Star. “People need to be ready, whether it’s bringing bail money with them, or letting relatives know they are traveling through the state.”

Chapel’s state chapter first issued the advisory in early June, and the national organization adopted it last week. The advisory will be ratified in October.

Advisories typically come from the State Department and warn about visiting other countries with unsettled political conditions or health hazards.

But the Missouri NAACP crafted its warning in part because of recent incidents that included racist statements to University of Missouri students, a hot glue gun attack on black teens in St. Louis and the May death of Tory Sanders.

Sanders, 28, suffered from depression and lived in Nashville when he went for a drive on May 5, the Riverfront Times reported at the time. A wrong turn landed him in Mississippi County in southeast Missouri, where the married father of eight ran out of gas.

Video shows a second group of Baltimore cops allegedly planting evidence in drug bust


Tuesday, August 1, 2017, 7:37 PM


bodycam video showing a second group of Baltimore cops apparently planting evidence has been uncovered, the Maryland public defender’s office announced Monday.

The video shows seven officers “working together to manufacture evidence,” according to The Baltimore Sun.

Police said the video includes “two arrests and the recovery of drugs from a car during a traffic stop.”

The footage released by the public’s defender’s office and obtained by ABC News shows the officers searching through the driver’s car before turning their body cameras off and on. An officer allegedly plants something in the car, and then the others discover the drugs, the video shows.

Charges against the driver in the November arrest were dropped, according to the network.

The same office released a video last month depicting an officer apparently planting drugs in an alley filled with trash. Officer Richard Pinheiro was suspended as a result, and two other cops, Hovhannes Simonyan and Jamal Brunson, were placed on administrative duty.

Disgraced Staten Island FBI agent /Congressman Michael Grimm wants his job back after going to prison for tax fraud

Grimm represented Staten Island and a part of Brooklyn as a Republican from 2011 to 2015. In 2014, the feds indicted the pol, once an FBI agent, on multiple charges.

He won reelection — despite being under indictment — before he gave up his seat after pleading guilty.

Grimm copped to helping prepare a false tax return.

When he pleaded guilty, he admitted to concealing more than $900,000 in receipts from Healthalicious, a Manhattan restaurant he owned.
