The idea of this post is to list men and women in political power and their counterparts in the corporate world who owe their allegiance to the FBI.
A judge who hands out a light sentence to a FBI  agent arrested for raping a 10 year old girl. The judge then gets promoted to the state Supreme Court or a political candidate who wins office after fixing a case for a FBI  agent.

I want to list specific cases on this forum with the eveidentiary proof and names of the predators both in the FBI  and public life.

I am also interested in listing any research, news stories or reading materials that  show a criminal pattern upon the part of  FBI agents in building an illegal RICO  organization  using the tools of our open and democratic way of life.

My first nomination is a book that appeared several years ago written by North Carolina attorney Alec Charns called CLOAK AND GAVELS which shows FBI  agents working behind the scenes to get the United States Supreme Court stacked with judges who reflect the views of the FBI  agents.

November 15, 2006 -- Reid selects GOP hack as Senate Sergeant-at-Arms. Incoming Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has picked former chief of the US Capitol Police Terrance W. Gainer as the Democrat's political patronage position of Senate Sergeant-at-Arms. Ironically, Gainer, who is a Republican who started out his police career by clubbing protestors at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago in 1968, was the choice of House Speaker Dennis Hastert and former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay to head the Capitol police. Gainer was forced to resign after it was discovered he violated Capitol police ethics rules by hiring his son-in-law as a Capitol policeman. Gainer is also suspected by African American members of the Capitol police of being involved in setting up an incident with House GOP staff in which Georgia Rep. Cynthia McKinney was harassed by a white Capitol cop, resulting in a GOP and right-wing media feeding frenzy over the confrontation.

Gainer also headed the Illinois State Police at a time during which ex-Governor George Ryan cited police misconduct by the state police as a primary reason for his commutation of the death sentences of death row inmates. Gainer, while Chief of the Capitol Police, worked under the aegis of the House Sergeant-at-Arms who was partially responsible for House pages in his role as a member of the House Page Board. Capitol Police failed to get involved in the predatory pederast activities of ex-Rep. Mark Foley in targeting underage House pages. As Senate Sergeant-at-Arms, Gainer will have direct responsibility for the Senate Page System.

Sign of things to come? Harry Reid rewards ethically-tainted GOP operative with Senate Sergeant-at-Arms job.

It did not take very long for the next Democratic Majority Leader to taint himself in the Pagegate and nepotism scandals with the appointment of Gainer. The rank and file Democrats in the Senate should expect more from a leader who is supposed to clean up the ethics mess left by the Republicans.

What to do,what to do what to do ?
C'mon' we know you have some solutions to these problems.

and Puleeeeeze remember the FBI never did anything.
It is just 3 letters of the alphabet.
Once you name Tzamarev's FBI agent handlers
then extracting a confession from those persons is
the next step.

We know FBI agents Anticev, Floyd , Fox and others higher up agents
like Louis Freeh perhaps who
handled Ahmed Salem , the FBI informant who created the 1993
1st World Trade Center bombing.

Then we have FBI supervisor Larry Potts and other FBI agents higher up
like maybe Louis Freeh who handled Timothy McVeigh in the 1995 Oklahoma
City bombing. Also cross index Assistant FBI Director Oliver
Buck Reville with Larry Potts.
Assistant Director Reville has been accused of pulling
his son off the plane in Europe before it took off and exploded
over Lockerbie.

Then you may want to identify the FBI handlers of Whitey Bulger
who provided Whitey with C4 explosives that were transferred by
Whitey to the IRA and used in the Omargh bombing by ,you guessed it,
FBI informant David Ruppert.

Then you have the principal architect behind the Mumbai
attack in India, David Headley.
Who were the FBI agents handling Headley?

Did I forget FBI Uber SAC Kallstrom and the downing of
TWA flight 800 over Long Island?

Judge names ex-FBI director as VW diesel settlement adviser

Published: 15:19 EST, 19 January 2016 | Updated: 15:19 EST, 19 January 2016

WASHINGTON, Jan 19 (Reuters) - A former Federal Bureau of Investigation director was named on Tuesday to help settle more than 500 lawsuits filed against German automaker Volkswagen AG over its excess diesel emissions, after no parties filed objections last week.

Robert S. Mueller, a Washington lawyer, was named as "settlement master" in the lawsuits by U.S. District Judge Charles Breyer, who oversees the cases.

Breyer announced his intent on Jan. 11 to name Mueller to "use his considerable experience and judgment to facilitate settlement discussions among the various parties in these complex matters."

No one had filed objections to Mueller's appointment by the judge's deadline of Jan. 15.

VW potentially faces billions of dollars in claims from owners of vehicles with excess emissions. Separately, the Justice Department sued VW earlier this month under the Clean Air Act seeking up to $46 billion.

On Friday, the Justice Department suit was transferred to Breyer's court.

VW has admitted to using software to allow 580,000 vehicles to emit up to 40 times legally allowable pollution. It also faces investigations by 47 state attorneys general.

Last month, VW named its own adviser, lawyer Ken Feinberg, to create a VW diesel owner claims program. Feinberg said the program is aimed in part at settling lawsuits out of court.

VW has not decided the details of the compensation program or on remedies, including potential vehicle buybacks.

Separately, Sueddeutsche Zeitung reported on Tuesday that VW plans to hire Louis Freeh, another former FBI chief, to help the carmaker deal with authorities in the United States investigating an emissions scandal.

A special committee on Volkswagen's supervisory board is due to discuss his appointment on Tuesday, the German newspaper said.

A Volkswagen spokesman declined to comment on "speculation" about Freeh's appointment.

President Obama Clinton
Madison , WI
Saturday, January 23, 2016

In the seventy years since World War II America has risen to be a mighty empire, the so-called indispensible nation towering over all nations in the world. Eat you heart out, Rome. As such, it has long had the strongest military in the world, devoting far more than other nations in terms of the percent of the economy or just plain outright in money. So it comes as no surprise that presidential candidates from above average per capita military spending states won all eleven elections of the Cold War and since then the only two presidents from below average military spending states each had worked with the CIA in their college days and since. This is poorly understood by most Americans, as secrecy even from one's spouse is asked of agents.

The Press and the CIA

The Church Committee investigation of the CIA in the seventies exposed the deep connection between the agency and the press. Many of the most prominent journalists in America started their careers in the CIA, and one CIA head boasted he had had close ties to 400 of the top journalists when he was in office. There is no evidence that things have changed since then. CIA recruitment features the same 1% type ivy leaguers that go on to dominate politics, business, and the press. These elites know each other. Bob Woodward and Ted Koppel were once Naval Intelligence, Walter Cronkite was OSS during the war, and Phil Graham and Ben Bradley, editors of the Washington Post, were CIA. Stories come more easily to those with connections to the most secretive agency in the country, so these people easily rise to the top. That Bush the father, Clinton, and Obama used the CIA to propel their careers is really nothing new under the sun. Ford reported proceedings back to J. Edgar Hoover while on the Warren Commission, and the CIA kept Carter and his CIA head Admiral Turner out of the loop according to one Bob Woodward book. Funny how he knew that, see what I mean?

Obama and the CIA

When Carter was elected president, Hamilton Jordan, his campaign manager, said in his book that the election would be futile if Zbigniew Brzezinski was appointed national security advisor. Sorry about that Hamilton. When Brzezinski retired to teach at Columbia, he soon chose this student Barack Obama as a young protégé. The article shown below suggests Obama visited Pakistan twice in the eighties, once as a student, once working for CIA front company Business International for three years just out of college, most probably as a CIA agent. At the time Pakistan was the staging ground for mujahideen warriors against the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan. No wonder Barack Obama tripled troop strength in Afghanistan in his first year as president. He was a good disciple of Brzezinski who went on to write The Grand Chessboard about that part of the world. So when Saturday Night Live made fun of the press fawning over Obama in 2008, they were probably criticizing members of the same intelligence fraternity: Obama and the press. As the famous quote in the movie "JFK" states, "once CIA, always CIA."

Clinton and the CIA

When the CIA was looking for a place to manufacture guns for the contra war in Nicaragua, they picked a backwards state not on the border to minimize interference with other government agencies like Customs or Firearms (ATF). The $100 million annual revenue from this activity created Clinton's claim that Arkansas had the strongest economy of any state under his leadership during that period of time, a big boost to his presidential campaign. Terry Reed witnessed an unhappy Clinton being assured by Bob Barr that he was "number one on the list" for the position he really wanted. That evidently meant the CIA would help him get the presidency. By the way, the $100 million a year came from crack cocaine sales in Los Angeles as explained in Gary Webb's 1998 book Dark Alliance and the 2015 movie "Kill the Messenger."

Here is the Progressive Review story on Obama:


The Strange Rise of Obama

Progressive Review 3jan2009

As we have noted, one of the unanswered questions about Barack Obama is how a young politician of such little achievement got so far so fast — from state senator to president in four years. Bill Blum provides new light on the subject. To understand this phenomenon, it is important to recognize that if a young Obama was vetted or otherwise used by the CIA, it was not all that unusual. From the 1950s on, the agency repeatedly interfered in the education of the talented young by recruiting or co-opting them for its own purposes. Yale's Skull & Bones Club, for example, was a classic case of a recruitment camp for future intelligence types. The purpose — for the short run — is more information, and — for the long run — a supply of US future government officials whom the agency trusts and can use. And it often begins with a bright college student an insider thinks might fill the bill. . . .

Bill Blum, Anti-Empire Report — The question that may never go away: Who really is Barack Obama? In his autobiography, "Dreams From My Fathers", Barack Obama writes of taking a job at some point after graduating from Columbia University in 1983. He describes his employer as "a consulting house to multinational corporations" in New York City, and his functions as a "research assistant" and "financial writer." The odd part of Obama's story is that he doesn't mention the name of his employer.

However, a New York Times story of 2007 identifies the company as Business International Corporation [1]. Equally odd is that the Times did not remind its readers that the newspaper itself had disclosed in 1977 that Business International had provided cover for four CIA employees in various countries between 1955 and 1960. [2]

The British journal, Lobster Magazine — which, despite its incongruous name, is a venerable international publication on intelligence matters — has reported that Business International was active in the 1980s promoting the candidacy of Washington-favored candidates in Australia and Fiji. [3] In 1987, the CIA overthrew the Fiji government after but one month in office because of its policy of maintaining the island as a nuclear-free zone, meaning that American nuclear-powered or nuclear-weapons-carrying ships could not make port calls. [4] After the Fiji coup, the candidate supported by Business International, who was much more amenable to Washington's nuclear desires, was reinstated to power.

In his book, not only doesn't Obama mention his employer's name; he fails to say when he worked there, or why he left the job. There may well be no significance to these omissions, but inasmuch as Business International has a long association with the world of intelligence, covert actions, and attempts to penetrate the radical left — including Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) [5] — it's valid to wonder if the inscrutable Mr. Obama is concealing something about his own association with this world.

William Blum - Homepage: http://killinghope.org/bblum6/aer65.html

Colony Net, 2008 — In an effort to shore up his foreign policy credentials during the primary campaign, the junior senator from Illinois — then in a tight primary contest with Hillary Clinton in Pennsylvania — bragged about the time he had spent in Pakistan. He argued that Clinton's foreign policy "experience" consisted only of quick photo ops, while he had spent "quality time" with "real people." Not only that, he had actually gone on a partridge-hunting trip near the Pakistan city of Larkana. His partridge-hunting apparently impressed the gun owners of Pennsylvania very little, inasmuch as Clinton won that primary by 10 per cent.

Eager to impress the Pennsylvania crowd with his "foreign policy experience" and knowledge of guns, Obama thus let slip the fact that he'd been to Pakistan. (It is believed that he made two trips to Pakistan.) There must have been more to that trip than meets the eye, however, because the candidate has said virtually nothing about it since. You won't find anything on the Obama campaign site. . .

Astute readers may have begun to wonder how a struggling young college student with a divorced, middle-class mother managed to fund a three week trip to Pakistan. . . But Barry Obama-Soetoro was off shooting partridges in Pakistan, hosted by a young man named Muhammed Hasan Chandio. Chandio's family owned a substantial amount of land in the region, and Obama apparently met him while both were students. (Chandio is currently a financial consultant in New York, and a donor to the Obama campaign.). . .

Another of Obama's hosts in Pakistan was Muhammadian Mian Soomro, Obama's senior by about 11 years, son of a Pakistani politician and himself a politician, who became interim President of Pakistan when Pervez Musharraf resigned in August of 2008. Soomro has said that "someone" personally requested that he "watch over" Barack Obama, but will not name that individual . . .

A trip to Pakistan is no doubt more than a jaunt to a Florida beach. Few Americans would consider traveling there now, thinking it to be a dangerous place. In 1981, when one of Obama's possible two trips there occurred, it was less safe. Because of the war between Afghanistan and the Soviet Union, millions of Afghan refugees fled to Pakistan, which was under martial law. The Afghan "mujahedeen" fighters had bases in Pakistan, and they moved back and forth to fight the Soviets. . .

In the early 1980s, Pakistan was one of the destinations Americans were prohibited from visiting — it was on the State Department's list of banned countries. Non-Muslims were not welcome, unless they were on official business, formalized through the embassy of the country of origin. The simple truth is that no young American would have a reason to or be able to visit Pakistan in 1981, unless he was on official government business of which the State Department was aware. . .

Adding to the mix is the fact that Ann Dunham, Obama's mother, had visited at least 13 countries in her lifetime, and had worked for companies that required travel to Pakistan. Her employers appear to have included the U.S. Agency for International Development, the Ford Foundation, Women's World Bank, and the Asian Development Bank. Note that USAID and the Ford Foundation have (allegedly) been used as covers for CIA agents. . . .

The story of Business International also includes its 1960s joint meetings with members of SDS at the prodding of Carl Oglesby. Not everyone was happy at the idea — including Bernadette Dorn — and probably for good cause.

Obama also was one of eight students selected to study sovietology by Columbia professor Zbigniew Brzezinski who, if he wasn't a CIA official, was as close as you can otherwise get. Brzesinski is now a member of Obama's inner circle.

If the Obama Pakistan story sounds somewhat familiar, it may because the Review was one of the few places that reported one of Bill Clinton's similarly interesting trips:

"1960s: Bill Clinton, according to several agency sources interviewed by biographer Roger Morris, works as a CIA informer while briefly and erratically a Rhodes Scholar in England. Although without visible means of support, he travels around Europe and the Soviet Union, staying at the ritziest hotel in Moscow. During this period the US government is using well educated assets such as Clinton as part of Operation Chaos, a major attempt to break student resistance to the war and the draft. According to former White House FBI agent Gary Aldrich Clinton is told by Oxford officials that he is no longer welcome there." source: 6jan2008

Here is the text from the Amazon listing of the 1994 book Compromised: Clinton, Bush, and the CIA by Terry Reed and John Cummings:


Compromised is the true story of Bill Clinton's political sell-out to the CIA.

Clinton's unbridled political ambitions and his campaign pledge to create "jobs for Arkansans" led him to compromise his ideals in exchange for CIA support in his bid for the Presidency.

He permitted the "Agency" to use Arkansas factories to make untraceable weapons and he allowed CIA contract agents to train Contra pilots on rural airstrips in support o

two stories about very very special FBI Supervisor Andrew Arena


Dawud Walid, executive director of the Michigan chapter of the Council
on American-Islamic Relations, said the federal authorities' description
of Abdullah's extremist links didn't match what he knew of Abdullah.

"I knew him to be charitable," Walid said. "He would open up the mosque
to homeless people. He used to run a soup kitchen and feed indigent
people. ... I knew nothing of him that was related to any nefarious or
criminal behavior."

Abdullah had a wife and children, Walid said.

Flint Water Crisis
Schuette taps ex-prosecutor, FBI chief for Flint probe


January 26 2016

Former Detroit FBI head Andrew Arena, left, Attorney General Bill Schuette and attorney Todd Flood discuss a Flint water crisis investigation on Monday.

Lansing — Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette is bringing on some high-profile hired guns to help investigate Flint’s water crisis and create a firewall as his office also defends the state in lawsuits brought by Flint residents.

Schuette on Monday announced that former Wayne County Assistant Prosecutor Todd Flood will serve as special counsel for the Flint probe. Retired Detroit FBI Chief Andrew Arena will help investigate.

The appointments will help create an “iron-clad conflict wall” between the investigation and civil lawsuits, according to the Republican attorney general, whose announcement was met by pushback from Democrats, who continue to question Schuette’s ability to represent the people of Flint with impartiality.

A glimpse inside the FBI Investigation into Judi Bari and Earth First!
The environmental activist’s file contains fake press releases, the Bureau’s take on the Civil Rights movement, and a redacted description of The Nation magazine
Written by Julia Rock
Edited by Beryl Lipton, JPat Brown
Judi Bari and Darryl Cherney, members of the environmental organization Earth First!, were driving Bari’s car through Oakland, California one night in May 1990 when a bomb exploded in the vehicle’s backseat. The Oakland Police Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation were soon on the scene, arresting the pair for possessing and transporting an explosive.
The FBI’s subsequent inquiry involved an intelligence gathering operation into the politics and tactics of Earth First!, according to the agency’s file on Bari, in addition to forensic research and interviews.
At the time of the car bombing that almost killed Bari, she and Cherney were organizing the Redwood Summer, a movement to stop lumber companies from clear-cutting old-growth redwoods in Northern California. In 2002, the FBI and OPD awarded Bari and Cherney’s estate $4.4 million following a federal civil suit against the agencies, which were charged with falsely arresting Bari and Cherney and violating their rights.

Who Bombed Judi Bari? Documentary Trailer

While the mystery of the car bombing remains unsolved, the information contained in the file reveals the scope of the FBI’s investigation into Bari as a suspect in the case. The file contains notes from searches of Bari’s home, news clippings about Earth First! activities during the Redwood Summer, and arrest reports - all standard features of such an investigation. More unusual are letters addressed to the Bureau, which recount strange and interesting theories of who the perpetrator may have been: A religious extremist calling themselves “The Lord’s Avenger,” Maxxam, the owner of Pacific Lumber, and even the OPD or FBI itself.
The most striking aspect of the file is the presence of misinformation about Earth First! and Bari in the FBI file. Lies and smear tactics were an important aspect of the campaign by Maxxam and pro-logging groups against Redwood Summer, and it is notable that the FBI retained this “intelligence” as part of its investigation.
One document, sent to the FBI from Mother’s Watch, an organization that judibari.org lists as a front for Maxxam, is likely a flyer that was distributed as part of the group’s disinformation campaigns against Earth First!
This document is almost certainly fake - Earth First! sought solidarity with loggers as a key feature of their Redwood Summer platform.
Other disinformation about Earth First! tactics were retained by the FBI. One clipping from the Earth First! Journal headlined “Eco-Kamikazes Wanted” is included in the file, although the sender and recipient of the clip are redacted.
