These days, law enforcement at all levels -- from the local cop shop to obscure federal agencies -- uses snitches to trap ordinary people. Snitches tell lies that send their friends to jail. Paid agents provocateurs talk or trick otherwise harmless people into committing crimes. In many places, Snitch culture has virtually replaced real investigation of real crimes.

Don't think you're exempt if you're a "law-abiding citizen." The most trusting, naive, innocent people often make the easiest targets for these weaselly, lying, opportunistic vermin. Snitches specialize in targeting the vulnerable.

You may be in danger if you are:

  • A political activist
  • A recreational drug user
  • A hobbyist or business person who works with "sensitive" materials
  • A member of an unpopular religion
  • A gun owner or dealer
  • A participant in the underground economy
  • A photographer or videographer
  • A controversial thinker or writer
  • Or you just happen to hang out with the wrong people

Snitches are everywhere and they're hard to detect. This brief, FREE ebook, Rats, can help you:

  • Identify a snitch
  • Protect yourself against snitches and agents provocateurs
  • Protect your friends or colleagues
  • Know how to handle yourself if you get arrested

It could even help you avoid being pressured into becoming a snitch, yourself.

Story Highlights

Inmates who operated the schemes have alleged that agents knew what they were up to
The past five years, almost 49,000 federal convicts have had their sentences reduced
Sometimes, the amount paid for information can approach $250,000

ATLANTA – The prisoners in Atlanta's hulking downtown jail had a problem. They wanted to snitch for federal agents, but they didn't know anything worth telling.

Fellow prisoner Marcus Watkins, an armed robber, had the answer.

For a fee, Watkins and his associates on the outside sold them information about other criminals that they could turn around and offer up to federal agents in hopes of shaving years off their prison sentences. They were paying for information, but what they were really trying to buy was freedom.

"I didn't feel as though any laws were being broken," Watkins wrote in a 2008 letter to prosecutors. "I really thought I was helping out law enforcement."

That pay-to-snitch enterprise – documented in thousands of pages of court records, interviews and a stack of Watkins' own letters – remains almost entirely unknown outside Atlanta's towering federal courthouse, where investigators are still trying to determine whether any criminal cases were compromised. It offers a rare glimpse inside a vast and almost always secret part of the federal criminal justice system in which prosecutors routinely use the promise of reduced prison time to reward prisoners who help federal agents build cases against other criminals.

Snitching has become so commonplace that in the past five years at least 48,895 federal convicts — one of every eight — had their prison sentences reduced in exchange for helping government investigators, a USA TODAY examination of hundreds of thousands of court cases found. The deals can chop a decade or more off of their sentences.

How often informants pay to acquire information from brokers such as Watkins is impossible to know, in part because judges routinely seal court records that could identify them. It almost certainly represents an extreme result of a system that puts strong pressure on defendants to cooperate. Still, Watkins' case is at least the fourth such scheme to be uncovered in Atlanta alone over the past 20 years.

Those schemes are generally illegal because the people who buy information usually lie to federal agents about where they got it. They also show how staggeringly valuable good information has become – prices ran into tens of thousands of dollars, or up to $250,000 in one case, court records show.

John Horn, the second in command of Atlanta's U.S. attorney's office, said the "investigation on some of these matters is continuing" but would not elaborate.

Prosecutors have said they were troubled that informants were paying for some of the secrets they passed on to federal agents. Judges are outraged. But the inmates who operated the schemes have repeatedly alleged that agents knew all along what they were up to, and sometimes even gave them the information they sold. Prosecutors told a judge in October that an investigation found those accusations were false. Still, court records show, agents kept interviewing at least one of Watkins' customers even after the FBI learned of the scheme.

The risks are obvious. If the government rewards paid-for information, wealthy defendants could potentially buy early freedom. Because such a system further muddies the question of how informants — already widely viewed as untrustworthy — know what they claim to know, "individual cases can be undermined and the system itself is compromised," U.S. Justice Department lawyers said in a 2010 court filing.
INTERACTIVE: THE BIG BUSINESS OF SNITCHING
Click to view U.S. map of federal convictions from 2006-2011 where sentences were cut for 'substantial assistance,' according to a USA TODAY investigation.

Before Watkins became an informant, he was a prolific armed robber.

In 1995, he held up a string of shops and restaurants, sometimes robbing the same place more than once, and sometimes pulling more than one robbery a day, according to court records. The last time he was arrested, in 2006, Atlanta police said he asked a supermarket clerk for a pack of cigarettes, stepped back, pulled a handgun and yelled "robbery." He fled before he got any money, employees caught him, and federal prosecutors hit him with a gun charge that could have put him in prison for the rest of his life.

By then, Watkins had been a federal informant for a decade, he said in a letter to USA TODAY. He claimed he once wore a wire inside a prison to help catch another man who was selling information to would-be witnesses. That man, Gregory Harris, later confessed, but, in an unusual move, the government agreed to halve the 20-year prison sentence Harris was already serving in exchange for his cooperation in other cases. (Harris was found dead this year inside the trunk of a burning car.)

And so began a career of trying to cash in on what he knew.

Pressure, and plenty of cooperation

People charged with federal crimes don't have many ways to avoid a tough sentence.

Nearly everyone charged is convicted. They usually face the prospect of a lengthy prison term, driven by long minimum sentences for drug crimes and sentencing rules that leave judges little leeway to make exceptions – unless they cooperate. Often, becoming an informant is the only chance defendants have.

An experienced lawyer who knows what his client has been charged with "can ask a client three or four questions, and you can get 95% accuracy on the sentencing range within 10 minutes … unless he has something to trade," said Tim Saviello, a John Marshall Law School professor and former federal public defender in Atlanta. "People are willing to pay $20,000 or $30,000 to get a piece of information. That tells you how valuable it is."

Every year for the past decade, 11% or more of the people convicted of a federal crime got a shorter sentence because they provided "substantial assistance" to investigators, a USA TODAY examination of federal sentencing data shows. That figure almost certainly understates the extent to which defendants cooperate because some get breaks that aren't reflected in court records and others only pass on information that the government doesn't find useful.

In return, prisoners offer up names and addresses of drug dealers. They wear recording devices or let police listen to their phone calls. They introduce undercover agents to their contacts inside crime organizations.

That kind of help has become indispensable for law enforcement. The Drug Enforcement Administration told the Justice Department's inspector general in 2005 that it "could not effectively enforce the controlled-substances laws of the United States" without its confidential sources.

Cooperation is especially common when drugs are involved. Nationwide, at least a quarter of the people sent to federal prison in drug-trafficking cases over the past five years successfully traded information for a shorter sentence. In some parts of the country – including Idaho, Colorado and western New York – more than half did, while in Nebraska, fewer than 5% of convicted drug traffickers got deals. One reason is that some prosecutors' offices demand far more cooperation to get a deal.

The benefits can be huge. Last year, half of the defendants who cooperated with the government got their sentences chopped by 50% or more, according to a U.S. Sentencing Commission report. People convicted of some white-collar crimes such as bribery and tax evasion usually avoid prison entirely.

It's up to Justice Department lawyers to decide who gets a break.

A jailhouse enterprise

Watkins' business plan was simple.

His associates on the outside collected information about drug dealers and other criminals, and he offered to sell it to other prisoners at the Atlanta City Detention Center who had money but lacked the facts or criminal contacts to cooperate with the government on their own. Sometimes the money ended up in a jail account that inmates use to buy commissary items, according to court records.

In exchange, he would deliver "packages" of information that his customers could share with federal agents looking to open new cases or buttress old ones.

The trouble was most of what Watkins had to sell was "classic street-level information" that was of little interest to federal agents looking to take down major drug traffickers, said Robert McBurney, who worked a related case when he was a federal prosecutor in Atlanta. He said Justice Department lawyers were uncomfortable shortening one prisoner's sentence as a reward for someone else's information, and doubly so when the would-be informants concealed the fact that their information was secondhand.

And then there was the money. "There were discussions that, if the information he relayed is valid, maybe he's an entrepreneur. If he chooses to get money instead of a reduction in sentence, Adam Smith would applaud that," McBurney said, invoking the 18th-century economist. But prosecutors didn't take the same view.

Watkins said he didn't see the problem. "The biggest buyer of information is the government," he said during a brief phone call from a detention center in Georgia. "But they pay in years."

He claimed during a phone call that the agents who debriefed him "knew money's been changing hands," and his lawyer said in court filings that it should have been obvious to investigators that Watkins was getting outside information. "They basically authorized all of this," Watkins said. He said he is still providing information to federal agents, an allegation that prosecutors have disputed.

Watkins' enterprise didn't come to light until the summer of 2008, when another inmate contacted prosecutors looking for a deal – with information about Watkins. (He got one.) Watkins later told the FBI that he had brokered deals for four inmates. James Rochester, the informant who turned him in – and had been intercepting his mail – told federal prosecutors through his lawyer that he thought there were at least a dozen customers. Watkins himself wrote to agents and prosecutors admitting that he had acted as a broker for other prisoners seeking information.

McBurney said prosecutors tried to review all cases that could have been tainted by Watkins' scheme. "It's a pernicious situation that, sadly, undid some good works," McBurney said. But FBI agent Mile Brosas testified in December 2010 that agents went "just based on the names that Mr. Watkins gave us."

Neither Watkins nor his customers were ever prosecuted for the scheme. At least one actually won a reduced sentence.

Watkins is still angling to get his own sentence reduced.

He pleaded guilty to a federal gun charge in 2007; in exchange, the government promised in a written plea agreement to recommend a 30-year sentence. But five and a half years later, he still hasn't been sentenced. Part of the reason is that he's still trying to get a judge to force the Justice Department to give him a "substantial assistance" reduction as a reward for the help he said he has given to state and federal agents.

The Justice Department "feigns dismay that Marcus Watkins was allegedly buying and selling information when the Government had been legally buying information from him over a lengthy period of time," his lawyer, Martin Cowen III, alleged in one court filing. He said it should have been obvious to agents by 2008 that Watkins – who had been in prison for two years by then – couldn't have been giving them current information about criminals unless he was getting it from someone outside the jail.

The government, Cowen said, was "'shocked, shocked' to find that information was being sold in the jail."

But if prosecutors weren't actually surprised, Atlanta's chief federal judge was. At a hearing in 2010, U.S. District Court Judge Julie Carnes excoriated the "abominable situation" of prisoners trading for outside information, and said she was "appalled that it's going on to the level it appears to be going on." The scheme, she said, could let the wealthy buy their way to reduced sentences, conjuring images of Hessian mercenaries of the Revolutionary War.

Carnes still hasn't decided what to do with Watkins.

Information has a price

Watkins' enterprise wasn't the only time someone here figured out how much information was worth.

In 2010, federal prosecutors indicted another man, Sandeo Dyson — an Army medic locked up on charges that he had tried to burn down a strip club for money — for running a similar scheme out of the same jail at the same time as Watkins. His customers paid $5,000 and $10,000 for information they hoped would win them lighter sentences. Prosecutors said he made $50,000 selling information to four other inmates.

Dyson pleaded guilty to a charge of encouraging his customers to lie to agents about the source of their information and was sentenced to 18 more months in prison.

U.S. District Judge Richard Story had planned to lock Dyson up longer. But by the time Dyson's attorney, Barry Lombardo, finished sketching the history of the pay-to-snitch business in Atlanta, Story instead sentenced him to the bottom end of what the federal sentencing guidelines said was appropriate, Lombardo said. (The transcript of that hearing remains sealed.)

In 2000, prosecutors here convicted Harris.

Four years before that, agents charged a prominent local defense lawyer, Robert Fierer, and his former drug-dealer client, Kevin Pappas, with running an even bigger information-for-sale enterprise. Their customers were quoted prices up to $250,000 for information that they hoped might help them go home sooner, according to court records.

To get a deal, Pappas said, people needed the right kind of information about the right kind of criminal – solid information about someone significant enough to be worth a federal agent's time, but not so ironclad that they'd ever be asked to testify. "The key is you got to know what the point of interest is in a given office today," he said.

The prosecutor who put the pair in prison, Buddy Parker, says he understands the pressures that made the information so valuable. "The only way to avoid a long sentence was to cut a cooperation deal. People without information, they're screwed," he said. "The guy who was the greatest criminal had the greatest likelihood of getting a low sentence."

Fierer got a two-and-a-half-year sentence. But he went home early after he gave agents information about another case.

Following the information, and the money

Watkins' information is still reverberating through one drug case.

In early 2008, an Atlanta jail inmate facing mortgage fraud charges approached FBI agents with information about a drug trafficker who was dealing in tractor-trailer loads of marijuana and cocaine. Leon Lumsden was by then practiced at trying to use information to win a deal. At his sentencing hearing that July, so many federal agents showed up on his behalf that the judge gave him an even bigger sentence reduction than prosecutors had sought.

The prosecutor on Lumsden's case, Gale McKenzie, had warned state and federal officers that his "credibility was nil." Still, she wrote in a September, 2008 e-mail, "many from state and federal law enforcement debriefed him and reported receiving verified information of value as well as making arrests based on his cooperation."

But the information about the drug dealer panned out. Marlon Burton — "Bird" on the street — lived in a country club south of Atlanta and traveled in a Mercedes; he had a direct connection to a Mexican cartel, according to court records.

What was less clear was how Lumsden — a white-collar crook — knew about him. During a phone interview this month, Watkins said he provided the information about Burton to Lumsden, and that he was compensated for it. Court records show he had previously offered the same facts to federal investigators.

Lumsden insisted that the information he got from Watkins was worthless. "I didn't benefit from all the garbage he gave me," he said during a brief phone call from a Georgia prison. "Everything he gave me was straight BS."

A reliable source, and more arrests

Still, in November of 2008, the FBI used Lumsden's information to ask a federal judge to let agents wiretap the trafficker's cellphone. He was an important part of the case because the agents' other informant hadn't done business with Burton in years, meaning a judge might think it was too stale to justify a wiretap. The agent who signed the wiretap application, Nikki Badolato, told the judge that Lumsden was "reliable."

Badolato later testified that she didn't know that Lumsden had been buying information because his name was misspelled in an FBI database.

The FBI got its wiretap. Agents arrested Burton the next year.

Burton in turn informed on the other members of his organization. In return, prosecutors chopped a decade off his prison sentence, a bargain the judge called "more than generous." One of the people Burton implicated was the owner of a Lithonia, Ga., machine shop where he said he would park, and sometimes unload, truckloads of marijuana and cocaine.

Agents arrested the owner, Ivey Grant, in the drive-through line of a Sonic Drive-In. It was the first time Grant, 61, had been charged with a crime, and when FBI agents booked him they found his hands were so scoured by years of labor that his fingerprints had worn away.

Grant is serving nine years in federal prison.

He insists he didn't know what was in Burton's trucks; to him, they were just like any of the other big rigs and dump trucks that rent space in the shop's dusty parking lot. Now he's asking a federal appeals court in Atlanta to overturn his conviction, saying that the judge who approved the wiretap that ensnared him should have been told about the shaky informants behind it.

Sitting in a cinder-block prison office in Atlanta's federal prison last month, Grant sounded more confused than angry about how he ended up facing almost a decade in custody. "I don't think it's right for a convicted felon to get up on the stand in front of honest citizens and convict other people," he said.

But with seven years to go, he sees the appeal.

"If someone says you can go home today if you say that box is blue," he said, stabbing a thick finger at a big, white cardboard box in the corner of the office and grinning, "then that box is blue."

Who's a rat still in the TOP 5 most controversial websites
December 5, 2012 12:07 PM | By Jason Buckland, MSN Tech & Gadgets

http://tech.ca.msn.com/the-internets-most-controversial-websites?page=6

Advertising over 5,000 profiles of police informants, Who’s A Rat has been called an incredibly dangerous site by authorities. Founded by a former marijuana dealer in 2004, the site was put up to expose informants (“rats”) and has been festooned with mug shots, court papers and, what the Associated Press notes, “rumours” about possible legal co-operators.

American prosecutors have lamented the site, alleging it encourages violence and discourages police cooperation.

He has been working with Federal agencies since 1991-1992. An ex-pimp and car theif turned informant. Information is vital to a case in which this snitches testimony led to a federall conviction. This snitch was born 5/12/1957.



If there are any P.I.'s or other similarly coneccted individuals capable of accessing the needed information, monetatry compensation can and wll be negotiated for said services.

According to his dockett entry sheet, he got his 84 month sentence reduced to TIME SERVED for cooperating, I would talk to his co-defendants or their attorneys, I am sure they would have plenty of info to help you discredit this RAT.

I appreciate everyones help thus far.



I plan on posting his information in the informants section, but I am awaiting some documentation that I can post about him (snail mail).



I truelly appreciate the info pfstein ! and I will take your advice on checking with the co-d's and their attorney's. Would the attorney's typically charge for this info, and if so, what's the ballpark on that figure? Seems like he had a lot of co-d's?

Senator Wyden calls for FBI
mail covers review after KGW investigation


September 26, 2016


Portland, Ore.— Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) is calling for a review of a government surveillance program that allows postal workers to monitor the mail.

A KGW investigation found over the past decade, more than 3,000 Oregonians have been the target of a little-known surveillance program called "mail covers."

“Given this high volume, it is important to make sure there are strong controls on the program to ensure that this technique is not used improperly,” wrote Wyden in a letter to Postmaster General Megan Brennan.

Read investigation: Secretive mail surveillance program targets Oregonians

Mail covers allow postal workers to record information from the outside of every letter that comes or goes from a particular address.  The information is then turned over the law enforcement agency that requested it.

Unlike other government surveillance programs, like wiretaps, the use of mail covers does not require a judge’s approval.    

Records obtained by KGW through the Freedom of Information Act showed the 3,114 requests for mail covers for Oregon addresses came from a variety of state and federal agencies including Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, Bureau of Diplomatic Security, Naval Criminal Investigative Service, U.S. State Department and U.S. Marshals Service. Local police and sheriff’s offices also called on postal workers to help snoop. 

A 2014 federal audit found the United States Postal Service failed to follow key safeguards while running the mail covers program.

Officer Gonsalves involved in fatal El Cajon police shooting was embroiled in sexual harassment lawsuit


According to the lawsuit, Gonsalves texted Officer Christine Greer with lewd messages, including an "obscene and indecent photograph of his somewhat-erect penis." Other messages included propositions for sex with Greer and her wife, court documents say.

"He was her sergeant and for about a year was texting her and propositioning her for sex," Gilleon said Thursday. "You can't text your subordinate a picture of your penis. He should have been fired."

 

Court documents say Gonsalves texted Greer multiple times with messages like "Uhm... 3 some?" and "U r too hot! U make everybody think about sex."

Other women were also harassed by Gonsalves, according to the lawsuit.

NRA’s Influence Over Congress Leaves ATF Understaffed



Even if the government decided to take away people’s guns, the ATF is so understaffed that it would be unable to follow through.

“Look, we don’t have the people,” Corey Ray, an ATF spokesman told Mother Jones. “Even if we were like, ‘Yeah, we’re coming to take your guns,’ 30 years from now you might get a knock on your door.”

The ATF said the lack of manpower is the result of the NRA’s powerful influence over Congress.

FBI Believes Russia Is Behind Attempted Hacks of Voting Registration Sites



The FBI believes Russia is behind attempted hacks of voter registration sites in more than a dozen states.

FBI Director James Comey relayed his concerns to a House Judiciary Committee hearing Washington, CNN reports.

“There have been a variety of scanning activities which is a preamble for potential intrusion activities as well as some attempted intrusions at voter database registrations beyond those we knew about in July and August. We are urging the states just to make sure that their deadbolts are thrown and their locks are on and to get the best information they can from DHS just to make sure their systems are secure,” he said.

Comey is warring states that would-be hackers are “poking around” voter registration systems.

Comey said the hacking attempts weren’t successful and didn’t compromise voting systems, at least not yet.

FBI Agent Ben Jones, who belongs to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, said

Lapp also acknowledged that government informant Mark McConnell, who was driving the Jeep in which Ammon Bundy was riding when police stopped it on Jan. 26 and arrested Bundy and other occupation leaders, likely was paid by the FBI for his help.

Lapp wasn't allowed to say how much McConnell was paid, but said he had seen a bureau proposal to pay McConnell.

Trump tops Clinton in Maine’s student mock election
The students also vote down a ballot initiative to legalize recreational marijuana.

AUGUSTA — Maine students chose Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton for president during a mock election Wednesday, with Trump receiving 10,785 votes, or 42.3 percent, to Clinton’s 10,077, 39.5 percent.

Students from 155 schools voted in the 2016 Maine Student Mock Elections, casting ballots for president, the state’s two congressional races and Maine’s six referendum questions. The election was open to all Maine K-12 students, but most of those who voted. are middle- and high-school students.

The Great Seal of the State of Maine was adopted in June 1820. There have been variations in the details of the seal, but the overall design and images remain true to the original. The center of the seal is a shield adorned with a tranquil scene of a moose resting in a field bordered by water and woods; a pine tree stands tall directly behind the moose. On either side of the shield, a farmer rests on his scythe, and a sailor leans on an anchor. Above the shield is the motto "Dirigo" (I lead), and a stylized North Star. Below the shield is a banner that reads "Maine". The legislature of 1919 decided that the design of the seal should no longer vary, and the design is still used today.




The Maine Ranked Choice Voting Initiative, also known as Question 5, is on the November 8, 2016, ballot in Maine as an indirect initiated state statute.
A "yes" vote supports establishing a statewide system of ranked-choice voting.
A "no" vote opposes this proposal to establish ranked-choice voting, thereby maintaining the current voting system.
Overview
Ranked-choice voting (RCV) is also known as instant-runoff voting. If approved, ranked-choice voting would be used to elect U.S. senators, U.S. representatives, the governor, state senators, and state representatives.[1]

Question 5 defines ranked-choice voting as "the method of casting and tabulating votes in which voters rank candidates in order of preference, tabulation proceeds in sequential rounds in which last-place candidates are defeated and the candidate with the most votes in the final round is elected."[1]

As of August 2016, there were no states that used ranked-choice voting for standard statewide elections. Currently all states use the method of voting that allows voters to choose one candidate, and the candidate with the most votes in a single round of voting is elected.

Recall that in a March 2015 interview with CBS, just after the NYT reported of Hillary’s use of a private email server, president Obama told the American public he had only learned about Hillary’s “unusual” arrangement from the press. As we further reminded readers one month ago, CBS News senior White House correspondent Bill Plante asked Mr. Obama when he learned about her private email system after his Saturday appearance in Selma, Alabama. “The same time everybody else learned it through news reports,” the president told Plante.

Independent Investigative Journalism Since 1995
Sessions’s Old-Time Contempt for Civil Rights
November 26, 2016

President-elect Trump’s choice of Sen. Jeff Sessions as Attorney General would put a longstanding opponent of civil rights for African-Americans in charge of the Justice Department, reports Dennis J Bernstein.


By Dennis J Bernstein

While much media attention has focused on President-elect Donald Trump’s fringe supporters in the “alt-right” and white-nationalist movements, there’s been less press alarm about his appointment of Sen. Jeff Sessions to lead the U.S. Justice Department despite the senator’s long record of hostility toward civil rights.

Yet the Sessions appointment may have much more ominous implications. As a legal official in Alabama last century, Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III conducted phony voter fraud investigations aimed at African-Americans and denounced leading organizations in the fight against racial segregation, telling aides that he considered the NAACP and the ACLU to be “un-American” and “Communist-inspired.” Sessions also is anti-LGBT rights, pro-capital punishment and hostile to abortion rights.

Responding to Trump’s nomination of Sessions to be Attorney General, the ACLU said, “as the nation’s highest-ranking law enforcement official, the attorney general is charged with protecting the rights of all Americans, yet Sessions has a reported history of making racist comments.”


Jeff Sessions supports Donald Trump at a rally. (Wikipedia)
But Sessions’s record goes far beyond racially insensitive remarks. In 1996, I traveled through Alabama and Mississippi with fellow journalist Ron Nixon as we investigated a wave of arson against black churches.

President Bill Clinton had said, “It is clear that racial hostility is the driving force behind a number of these incidents.” said Clinton. Then-U.S. Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights, Deval Patrick, launched what he called “the largest federal civil rights investigation that we have had in sometime. This is not a lightly taken investigation.”

However, Alabama’s Attorney General at the time was Sessions, who was in a close race for the U.S. Senate. Sessions’s approach to the burning of some 40 black churches over 18 months from late 1994 into 1996 was to turn the investigation into a joint probe linking the church burnings to an investigation of black voter fraud through alleged misuse of absentee ballots. The connection supposedly was that black voting-rights activists tried to cover up the fraud by burning down their own churches.

In hearings held at the time by the House Judiciary Committee, one minister told Congress that he had been asked to take a lie-detector test regarding voter fraud. Another testified that the financial records from his church were subpoenaed.

“Why are they harassing members of the church instead of these redneck terrorists who are burning down black churches,” asked the Reverend Joseph Lowery, then President of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC). “It’s hard for me to believe we can find terrorist all over the world with our sophisticated equipment, but we can’t find a bunch of amateur terrorists here in America.”

Despite the long history of white racists burning down black churches as a means of political intimidation, state and federal investigators found nothing to suggest a racial motivation to the dozens of church burnings. Thomas Figures, a black former Assistant U.S. Attorney who had worked under Sessions before quitting and accusing Sessions of calling him “boy,” said it was highly unusual to combine two investigations, the church burnings with the voter-fraud suspicions.

Figures blamed the lack of any positive breakthrough in the church fires on “the recalcitrance and the reluctance and the outright hostility of some Southern law enforcement agencies and officials, like Sessions, toward enforcing civil rights.”

But the Clinton administration also appeared hesitant to move too aggressively on such a politically sensitive topic. Barrown Lankster, Alabama’s first elected black district attorney, unsuccessfully petitioned the Justice Department to conduct an investigation into the vandalism of three churches in Sumter County and a shooting into the house of a Circuit judge who had ruled against two white youths in a church arson case.

“I even wrote to Attorney General Janet Reno personally asking that these actions be pursued as civil rights violations,” Lankster said in a 1996 interview. “The criminal division in Washington told me they

Internet mogul Josh Harris (above in 2014) is living in Las Vegas in a grubby apartment after becoming convinced he is the subject of FBI surveillance 

An internet mogul who was once worth $95million is now living in a grubby apartment on $650 a week with a budgie, convinced he is being watched by the FBI.

Josh Harris pioneered webcam technology and made millions after predicting how the internet would grow in the 1990s.  

Now 56, he lives alone in Las Vegas with an army knife next to his sleeping bag. He believes he is under FBI surveillance and has been for years for his role in a mysterious art installation at the World Trade Center before the 9/11 attacks. 

The installation saw a group of performance artists apparently remove a window on the 91st floor of the North Tower in 2000 with suction pads and replace it with a balcony where they stood, one by one and naked, at 6am on a March morning in 2000. 

It has eerie links to the atrocity which destroyed the towers, however.

Harris claims he was put on the FBI's watch list for his involvement in a 2000 art installation at the World Trade Center which saw a group of artists replace a window on the 91st floor of the north tower with a balcony and stand on it at sunrise while the internet mogul filmed them from a helicopter.

Washington Post Disgracefully Promotes a McCarthyite Blacklist From a New, Hidden, and Very Shady Group
Ben Norton, Glenn Greenwald
November 26 2016, 1:17 p.m.

THE WASHINGTON POST ON THURSDAY NIGHT promoted the claims of a new, shadowy organization that smears dozens of U.S. news sites that are critical of U.S. foreign policy as being “routine peddlers of Russian propaganda.” The article by reporter Craig Timberg – headlined “Russian propaganda effort helped spread ‘fake news’ during election, experts say” – cites a report by a new, anonymous website calling itself “PropOrNot,” which claims that millions of Americans have been deceived this year in a massive Russian “misinformation campaign.”

The group’s list of Russian disinformation outlets includes WikiLeaks and the Drudge Report, as well as Clinton-critical left-wing websites such as Truthout, Black Agenda Report, Truthdig and Naked Capitalism, as well as libertarian venues such as Antiwar.com and the Ron Paul Institute.

This Post report was one of the most widely circulated political news articles on social media over the last 48 hours, with dozens, perhaps hundreds, of U.S. journalists and pundits with large platforms hailing it as an earth-shattering exposé. It was the most-read piece on the entire Post website after it was published on Friday.

Yet the article is rife with obviously reckless and unproven allegations, and fundamentally shaped by shoddy, slothful journalistic tactics. It was not surprising to learn that, as BuzzFeed’s Sheera Frenkel noted, “a lot of reporters passed on this story.” Its huge flaws are self-evident. But

Court Statement by Louis Wolf
Testimony before Judge E. Mallon Faircloth,
Federal Court, Columbus, Georgia, January 26, 2009,
by Louis Wolf

Since 1946, the School of Americas (SOA), then based at the American base, Fort Gulick in Panama, trained ten different Latin American military officers who would become the most renowned dictators in the hemisphere, and hundreds of senior and mid-level officers who distinguished themselves as gross human rights abusers, serial torturers, drug traffickers, and associates of organized crime.
Your Honor, I do not stand here today just in moral opposition to curricula that SOA created across the map of torture. It is because torture is a logical and necessary component in the very wide gamut of special operations, commando tactics, sophisticated counterinsurgency techniques, covert procedures, military intelligence, covert intelligence activities,psychological warfare, psychological operations or “PSYOPS”, etc., all honed by the British in Malaya, and by the U.S. in the Philippines, Vietnam and Laos, and more recently in Iraq and Afghanistan. Likewise, the 1963 CIA ‘KUBARK’ interrogation and torture documents and the early 1980s torture manuals authored by the U.S. Army both documented what has been central to the SOA/WHINSEC curricula taught to thousands of officers from eighteen Latin American countries: Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Mexico, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay, and Venezuela. These materials specifically instructed their students on how to motivate civilian targets by fear, by extortions, by kidnappings, by use of truth serum, by beatings, by rapes, by false imprisonments, by torture of children in front of their parents and vice versa, by beheadings, by live burials, by public executions, and by massacres.

At this writing, five countries have decided to completely withdraw their personnel from future training at WHINSEC: Costa Rica, Argentina, Uruguay, Venezuela, and Bolivia. They have stated “. . . we have absolutely no need for training at this kind of school.” A former Uruguayan general stated he felt “used” by the Pentagon to protect U.S. interests, to the point of leading many of his fellow officers to repress, torture and kill his own people. Other nations which have for years sent their military officers to SOA/WHINSEC for training are actively considering their immediate options as well. Last year, the vote in Congress to cut off funding lost by just six votes, so we may not need to return to Columbus to protest again next year.

It is instructive to read about the WHINSEC seal on WHINSEC’s web site that it features “the colors blue and white and the Maltese cross, the insignia of Christopher Columbus during his explorations of the Caribbean Sea, which represents the heritage of security cooperation of the Western Hemisphere.” After a slave raid in 1495, Columbus later wrote: “Let us in the name of the Holy Trinity go on sending all the slaves that can be sold.” Columbus was true to his word affirming it further, saying: “We shall take you and your wives, and your children, and shall make slaves of them, and we shall take away your goods, and shall do you all the mischief and damage that we can, and we protest that the deaths and losses which shall accrue from this are your fault.” Historians estimate that during four years, four million native lives were taken in what is now San Salvador. In their effort to whitewash SOA’s role in facilitating the tortures and massacres in Latin America, did Pentagon policymakers choose Christopher Columbus to be a role model for the WHINSEC seal as a declaration that future training should go down a similar path as Christopher Columbus?

As dawn broke on November 23 last year, thousands of people young and old, black, brown, yellow and white, who had come to Fort Benning from across the United States to protest the continued existence of the institution began to gather for the sixteenth year outside the Fort Benning Drive entrance to the base. Some noticed that the very tall and robust flagpole which rises just outside of the newly enlarged perimeter fence, showed a shiny, slippery surface that glistened in the sun. It was apparent that either the U.S. Army or the Columbus police had greased the surface of the flagpole, ostensibly to discourage protesters from shinnying up its heights to enter Fort Benning and register their protest. What traditionally is the patriotic flagpole was this year covered with ignominious grease, thus dishonoring the flag itself.

A visit to the WHINSEC website [www.Benning.army.mil/whinsec] states the following as the seventh of eight objectives of the facility in answer to the question “What is the purpose of WHINSEC?”: “. . . to eradicate extreme poverty, which constitutes an obstacle to the full democratic development of the peoples of the hemisphere.” It certainly is true that grinding poverty is prevalent in many of the 22 countries of Latin America and the Caribbean. However, to suggest that WHINSEC and the military training it conducts day in and day out is a new and viable solution to the profound poverty and social inequality that prevails in these nations is nothing less than breathtakingly shallow Pentagon propaganda. This is also personified by the fact that every occupant of the White House routinely recites the mantra: “The United States is the greatest nation on earth.” This statement is certainly not endearing to the other 192 nations of the world, and is a huge and explicit insult to them and their citizens. This is a new era. The day has finally arrived when America’s arrogant doctrine of exceptionalism, as both preached and practiced by George W. Bush and numerous presidents before him, must cease.

President Obama has stated: “I have said repeatedly that America doesn’t torture. And I’m gonna make sure that we don’t torture. Those are part and parcel of an effort to regain America’s moral stature in the world.” Obama also said: “[w]e’ll reject torture – without exception or equivocation.” In the context of SOA/WHINSEC, even if we accept the new President’s premise that American military and intelligence operators will actually stop the practice of torture, will this also mean that we will no longer “outsource” it – or encourage others to torture their citizens for us? If so, then it must start right here at this very United States military school.

In its 50 years, the SOA (and the WHINSEC in its nine years) has trained more than 64,000 Latin American (and more recently, Caribbean) soldiers in combat skills, sniper training, counter-insurgency techniques, use of advanced combat arms systems, commando tactics, and psychological operations. SOA graduates include some of the region’s most despicable military strongmen and human rights abusers.

Brother of Fla. airport shooting suspect blames FBI

Saturday, January 7, 2017, 11:08 PM



The unhinged Army veteran who flew 5,000 miles to execute five strangers at a Florida airport could face the death penalty for his baggage carousel killing spree.

Esteban Santiago, described by his brother as a walking time bomb, was charged with an act of violence resulting in death at an international airport — making him eligible for federal execution.

“(The) charges represent the gravity of the situation and reflect the commitment of federal, state and local law enforcement personnel to continually protect the community and prosecute those who target our residents and visitors,” said U.S. Attorney Wifredo Ferrer.


A day after the massacre — the nation’s first mass shooting of 2017 — investigators were still stumped over why Santiago, 26, flew from his home in Alaska to target passengers at the Fort Lauderdale airport.

A federal complaint revealed the New Jersey-born Santiago told the investigators that his carnage was planned, right down to purchasing a one-way ticket to Florida.

As officials searched for a motive, Santiago’s brother said the assault could easily have been prevented if the FBI had stepped up and used a little common sense.
