You’re a F—cking Liar’: Whitey Bulger and the FBI’s Sordid History
T.J. English
07.01.134:45 AM ET

In the history of the FBI, there have likely been few special agents as unimaginative in their corruption as John Morris. As supervisor of the bureau’s organized-crime squad in Boston from 1976 to 1983, and later part of a local organized-crime task force, Morris accepted from gangsters $7,000 in bribes, bottles of wine, a silver-plated wine bucket, and airfare for his secretary, who also happened to be his mistress. Morris took these gratuities from the very men he was empowered to investigate, mobsters James “Whitey” Bulger and his partner Steve “the Rifleman” Flemmi.

On the witness stand Thursday and Friday, at the Moakley Federal Courthouse on the South Boston waterfront, Morris, age 67, wants you to know that this weighed heavily on his mind. As a key witness in the ongoing trial of the infamous Whitey Bulger, who faces 32 criminal counts, including racketeering charges and 19 counts of murder, Morris came across as remarkably bland. He has a tight little mouth and beady eyes. His complexion somewhat rosy from his retirement years as a “wine educator,” Morris is soft-spoken and hollow, the face of corruption as white bread and Velveeta cheese.

“I don’t know why I did it,” said Morris from the stand. “I had given over all my power and authority at this point to John Connolly.”

John J. Connolly was Morris’s subordinate, a hotshot special agent in the FBI’s organized-crime squad with vast contacts in Boston, both in the underworld and in the legitimate world of politics and business. It was Connolly who, starting in 1975, had enlisted Bulger as a source of underworld information. To Connolly and Morris, Bulger was a TE, or top-echelon informant, the highest designation in the Bureau for a snitch. Having a TE under your jurisdiction was a major feather in the cap of any agent, the kind of accomplishment that could lead to commendations from headquarters, financial rewards, and promotions within the ranks of what J. Edgar Hoover once called “the sacred trust.”

The government’s case against Bulger is based partly on his role as an FBI informant, particularly how he used his connections with law enforcement to engage in an underworld version of insider trading. Bulger received information from Morris and Connolly about investigations conducted by other law-enforcement agencies into his criminal activities. The agents tipped him off about potential informants in his organization. Bulger allegedly used that information to murder said informants before they could do him any harm. Incredibly, in 1983, Morris and Connolly even allowed Bulger and Flemmi to listen to highly confidential Title III recordings from a bug they had placed in the main headquarters of the Mafia in Boston. They did so over wine in a celebratory fashion in a room at the Colonnade Hotel, where Morris got so drunk he needed to have one of the gangsters drive him home.

From the stand, Morris related how he and Connolly often engaged in “puffery” in memos that exaggerated Bugler’s value as an informant, how they routinely took information given to them by other informants—including Flemmi—and put it in Whitey’s file. Even worse, they knowingly allowed Bulger to plant disinformation into FBI files, through memos they signed off on, about crimes his gang had committed, effectively derailing the likelihood of Bulger being investigated and prosecuted for innumerable horrendous acts, including murder.

[Bulger] also told Morris, ‘You took money from me. If I go to jail, you’re coming with me.’

“You knew this information was false,” said Fred Wyshak, the lead prosecutor, of one such memo.

“I did,” said the former agent.

Over time, as Morris told it in direct testimony elicited by Wyshak, other agents from his squ



New FBI chief in Boston talks on terror, espionage
Special agent in charge of the FBI's Boston division Harold Shaw speaks Monday with a reporter in his office in Boston.

Posted Nov 23, 2015 at 6:00 PM

BOSTON — For Harold Shaw, starting a job as the new special agent in charge of the FBI's Boston office is a bit of a homecoming.

Shaw, who grew up in Weymouth and Hingham, returned to Boston last month after spending much of his nearly 17-year FBI career in the New York office. Shaw has worked on several high-profile terror investigations, including the Sept. 11, 2011, attacks, the bombing of the USS Cole in Yemen in 2000 and the Benghazi attacks in 2012.

Shaw, 49, said his priorities for Boston are similar to the FBI's national priorities, including national security, identifying homegrown violent extremists and preventing cyber espionage.

"Really, in the last year alone, you're looking at in excess of $400 billion in terms of economic espionage that is happening," Shaw said.

"It's a significant problem that's happening ... especially in our area where we have a number of high-end businesses ... that could be targeted by any foreign state actor or any criminal organization in terms of the loss."

Shaw began working for the F

couple of reads about terrorists
let god sort out who the bad guys are


Boston FBI boss focused on stopping would-be jihadis
Agent has counterterrorism background


Thursday, January 07, 2016

DOWN TO BUSINESS: Harold H. Shaw, recently appointed the special agent in charge of the Boston Division of the FBI, says the Hub office is focused on stopping would-be jihadists like Tarek Mehanna and Rezwan Ferdaus, and solving the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum art heist.

The Hub’s top G-Man — who called counterterrorism his priority No. 1 as he settles into his new post — is girding for a long hunt for potential jihadis who these days rely on simple Internet connections rather than travel to war-torn hot spots.

“In the past ... (you’d ask), ‘Did an individual travel to get training from al-Qaeda? Did they return? Is there some degree of command and control to that operation?’ ” Harold H. Shaw, the special agent in charge of the FBI’s Boston office, said yesterday. “The likelihood was you would have to travel overseas to receive training, vetting and financing to conduct a terrorist act. Now it can be a jihadist on the back-end of the computer attempting to really become self-radicalized and is prone to move forward. The thing that concerns me most is what we don’t know. Being able to piece together these certain threads of information — to be able to confront the next emerging threat — is the thing we need to do even better.”

Shaw, a Weymouth native, arrived in Boston in October with a background in counterterrorism, including time as the bureau’s first liaison to the CIA’s Counterterrorism Center in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and later as director of the New York FBI office’s international terror probes.

A wall in his downtown office is adorned with framed copies of New York tabloids documenting his cases, including the foiled bombing of the New York Federal Reserve in 2013. They speak to a decade-plus chasing would-be jihadis — also evident in Shaw’s conversation, which is rich in acronyms such as HVE (homegrown violent extremist) and USIC (United States Intelligence Community).

Shaw said it’s far more difficult now to detect terror plots, even since recent cases such as the 2011 arrest of Rezwan Ferdaus — who later pleaded guilty in Boston to concocting plans to fly explosive-rigged model airplanes into the Pentagon — or the charges brought against Tarek Mehanna, who was sentenced in 2012 in Boston on terrorism-related charges.

“They’re not going away and they’re only getting harder to discern,” he told the Herald in a wide-ranging interview. “The harsh reality is that in this day and age, in some instances, it’s trying to find a needle in a haystack.”
Shaw noted the FBI faces huge hurdles in combing through social media and other online sources for lone-wolf terrorists.

“We are not in the business of doing basically bulk analysis,” he said. “It’s not in our framework or business basically to be just searching all open-source venues without a specific predicated reason as to why. So trying to comb through that vast domain to try to figure who might be radicalized or who might be conducting

FBI Denies Witness Tampering In Oklahoma City Bombing Lawsuit

Posted: 11/10/2014 6:09 pm EST Updated: 11/10/2014 6:59 pm EST

SALT LAKE CITY — The FBI did not pressure a former government operative into backing out of testifying in a lawsuit claiming the agency failed to search its files for additional videos of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, a new FBI report shows.

The bureau's office of inspections disclosed the report on Friday, a day after U.S. District Judge Clark Waddoups threatened the FBI with contempt of court for not completing the tampering investigation as he had ordered.

A hearing is scheduled Thursday to discuss the matter.

The lawsuit was filed by Salt Lake City attorney Jesse Trentadue, who believes there is video showing Timothy McVeigh was not alone in detonating the bomb in Oklahoma.

Trentadue believes the presence of a second suspect would explain why his brother was flown to Oklahoma months after the bombing. His brother died in a federal holding cell.

The case reached trial because the judge was not satisfied by the FBI's previous explanations after the lawsuit

No, he’s on our side

Having a group identified by the mainstream media as Sanders supporters attack a Trump rally is classic false flag, and the obvious culprit, the only group that benefits, is the Clinton camp, or any group attempting to have Clinton beat Trump.

“Someone Will Die” Note the spin here. Somebody makes a violent attempt on the person of Trump, while he is making political speech, and somehow this is Trump’s fault? He brought it upon himself, you see. Imagine what the reaction would be if everything was the same but the attack was made against Clinton.

We don’t have to imagine what might happen should there be a completely non-violent, non-threatening protest against Clinton: “Hillary’s Double-Standard on Protests”

“Trump Supporter To Dutch Reporter: ‘Go To Auschwitz!'” It seems some Trump supporters have identified the source of the problem.

From December 2015: “Front Row Protester Disrupts Trump’s Michigan Speech with “ISRAEL DID 9/11! FIVE JEWS ARRESTED ON 9/11 IN NEW JERSEY, NOT MUSLIMS.” Trump: “No, he’s on our side.”

“Fans cheering for Catholic basketball team shout ‘You killed Jesus’ to opposing players – Valerie Strauss/The Washington Post”

“The Blessed Bigotry of Mr Trump” (Israel Shamir):

“If I were a self-conscious American Muslim, one who cares for Islam, I’d say to myself: which candidate, if elected, will do less harm to the Ummah, to the Muslim world? Should I support the lady who was so beastly joyous at watching the horrible brutal death of a Muslim ruler, Muammar Gadhafi? Should I support the lady who will do this week her star appearance at AIPAC conference, pledging to do Israel’s bidding for the next four years? Or, for that matter, should I support Ted Cruz who takes his orders in Tel Aviv, or should I rather support the man whom Cruz accused of being an enemy of Israel?”

“Eagles of Death Metal Frontman Apologizes for Implying Bataclan Security Had Advance Knowledge of Paris Attack [Updated]” It’s classic in all the big conspiracies for the official and quotidian guardians to suddenly and mysteriously disappear just before the attack.

Parry on the sarin false flag story as told by a concentration camp guard: “Neocons Red-Faced Over ‘Red Line’”.

“Was Mikhail Lesin Killed by the FBI?” A lot of good, logical points.

to Dave Slesinger’s comments about AE911Truth. The amended
agenda was APPROVED.

Dr. Mary’s Monkey presentation
Cat McGuire announced our guest speaker for the call, Ed
Haslam, the author of Dr. Mary’s Monkey. Haslam gave a
fascinating presentation on the contents of the book.

Expansion of debate length
It was agreed that the April 27 debate between Barbara
Honegger and Craig McKee/Adam Ruff on what happened at the
Pentagon on 9/11 would be the only item on the agenda for
that call. The decision was made to increase the time for
the debate itself to up to one hour with questions and
discussion of up to 30 minutes.

Survey regarding teleconference
Facilitator Ken Freeland asked teleconference participants
to respond to the survey
on the subject of whether changes should be made to the
scheduling or frequency of future teleconferences.

Debate topics
Ken Freeland raised the possibility that other topics could
be debated on future calls. Dave Slesinger proposed a debate
on whether AE911Truth has become an “encrusted
bureaucracy.” As of this writing, no one has offered to
take the negative position.

Aviation details
Because of the length of the call, Robin Hordon agreed to
postpone his presentation on aviation issues related to 9/11
but he was given a few moments to introduce the topic.

Dave Slesinger offered critical comments about
AE911Truth’s policy of denying others access to the
contact information of petition signatories. Andy Steele
responded on behalf of AE911Truth.

* Dave Slesinger asked if anyone would be willing to work
with him in approaching Professor Zdeněk Bažant of
Northwestern University who has written papers supportive of
the 9/11 official story. Wayne Coste said he is trying to
get the American Society of Civil Engineers to retract four
papers that are not scientifically valid, and he would also
like help with this.
* Cat McGuire asked that participants support Newsbud, a new
alternative news outlet being started by Sibel Edmonds,
James Corbett, and others. Newsbud can be supported
financially by going to the Kickstarter fundraising page.
* Barbara Honegger announced that she has tentatively
decided to run for Congress in the 20^th Congressional
District, California, on a 9/11 truth ticket. She would be
running against Jimmy Panetta, son of former CIA director
Leon Panetta.

The Persecution of Robert Fitzpatrick

In Beantown, the indictment and upcoming trial of retired FBI agent Robert Fitzpatrick on perjury charges is a vindictive prosecution designed to intimidate potential whistleblowers and rewrite history.
By T.J. English
The case of the notorious Boston gangster James “Whitey” Bulger is not yet over. It is not over because a federal prosecutor in the District of Massachusetts does not want it to be over.
Earlier this week, Assistant U.S. attorney Fred M. Wyshak Jr. filed papers in the case against Robert Fitzpatrick, a retired FBI agent who, in the summer of 2013, testified on behalf of the defense at the trial of Whitey Bulger. In April 2015, nearly two years after the trial was over, the U.S. Attorney’

One of the guns used in the November 13, 2015 Paris terrorist attacks, as reported by Judicial Watch on June 28, 2016, came from a gun store in the Phoenix, Arizona metropolitan area. This is an area where senior law enforcement leaders of the Obama administration permitted and facilitated known criminals to buy thousands of weapons in an illegal “gun-walking” operation known as “Fast and Furious.” That operation, in part, resulted in the murder of former Marine and Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry as well as hundreds of others.

An excerpt from the June 28 Judicial Watch article suggests a continued opaqueness surrounding both Operation Fast and Furious and any ongoing investigation:

Move to Give FBI More Warrantless Spying Powers
Thursday, January 26, 2017

Congress is backing off from a push to grant the Federal Bureau of Investigations more warrantless surveillance powers.
Lawmakers had been attempting to use the annual intelligence policy bill to allow the FBI to obtain more sensitive digital information from Americans, using only a subpoena.
That effort, however, has been abandoned, this year, according to a recently published Senate Intelligence Committee report on the legislation.
"This expansion of government surveillance authorities was both far-reaching and intrusive, potentially covering records related to Americans' email exchanges as well as their login history, IP addresses, and internet browsing history," said Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore).
Wyden said the proposal would have given the FBI such spying authorities "with no court oversight."
In the report, published late last week, on the day of Donald Trump's inauguration, Wyden noted that he would back the legislation, the Intelligence Authorization Act of 2017, with the additional surveillance powers stripped from the bill. He had held up the proposal on the Senate floor, in June 2016, after its authors sought to expand FBI's spying authorities.
Hawkish senators had attempted to grant the FBI such powers, in the wake of the June 12, 2016 shooting at Pulse, a popular gay nightclub in Orlando, Fla. The massacre left 53 people wounded and 49 others dead, including

Seattle is considering removing federal surveillance cameras around the city to avoid potential misuse under President Trump’s administration.

The Seattle City Council plans to call for the removal of the cameras, which have been operating since at least 2015, Seattle Weekly reports.

Leading the move is Seattle City Councilmember Kshama Sawant.

“It is totally unacceptable for the City of Seattle to be complicit in federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies surveilling Seattle’s public spaces,” Sawant said in a press release. “As a sanctuary city we should not be filming our general population, and we certainly should

Chilean Wildfires are Worst to Ever Strike the Country
Drought in Chile has now lasted for more than a ten years.

Yearly precipitation deficits have ranged from 30-70% for most of central Chile for the last decade. But the ongoing drought’s intensity has increased since 2011. The result has been “an unprecedented drought in terms of intensity, spatial and temporal extent.”

Over recent days, the forests of Central Chile appear to have finally succumbed to the unprecedented and unrelenting punishment. One by one, massive wildfires ignited through Chile’s bone-dry woods — scorching hillsides, decimating more than 100 vineyards, and resulting in the tragic loss of four firefighters. As of today, more than 85 wildfires have burned approximately 190,000 hectares of land — or about 733 square miles.

This charred chunk of Chile more than half the size of Rhode Island represents the worst fire disaster in the state’s history. Now, nations are scrambling to help Chile respond to the crippling disaster as more than 35 large fires continue to rage out of control.

President Michelle Bachelet, visiting the hard-hit Maule region, stated to Reuters:

“We have never seen something of this size, never in Chile’s history. And the truth is the (firefighting) forces are doing everything that is humanly possible and will continue to do so until the fires are contained and controlled.”

These massive fires serve as the most recent book-end to a crippling climate change related situation that has been impacting Chile and larger South America for years. The fire situation has obviously been set in place by current ‘Mega Drought’ conditions. A drought period that “stands out not only in the historical record but also in precipitation and stream flow reconstructions for the last 1000 years.”

It’s a drought situation that’s replete with climate change related signals. Negative Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO) values helped to push Chile into a dry phase through 2012 even as drying was considerably stronger than during past negative PDO periods. As PDO flipped to positive from 2013 onward, related El Nino conditions failed to bring expected rainfall to the state and drought conditions worsened. Due to these factors, climate researchers note: “there is an strong suggestion that anthropogenic climate change is [at least in part] responsible for the present Mega Drought.”

(It’s not just wildfire-ravaged Chile. Large regions of South America are also experiencing severe drying which is helping to increase wildfire risk. Such drying is a feature of human-caused climate change in that human-forced warming due to fossil fuel burning increases evaporation rates and related stress to forests even as it drives fundamental alterations to precipitation patterns that can substantially worsen drought and wildfire intensity.

Climate change also appears to be driving drying in neighboring South American states like Brazil and Bolivia — where severe droughts and related warming are drying up massive lakes and helping to worsen the wildfire situation in the Amazon Rainforest. In Bolivia, drought has combined with a climate change driven removal of key mountain glaciers that has produced an endemic state of water scarcity. In Brazil, warming and deforestation are combining to remove a large portion of the atmospheric moisture plume that the great Amazon Rainforest provides. So the historic Chilean wildfires should also be considered in the larger context of ongoing South American droughts related to climate change.

This Election is an Encounter with the Force of Destiny
Hi Everyone,

Well, Election Day has finally arrived. Whew. Today in deciding who will be our next President, we are truly casting a vote for which path of destiny this nation will follow, because symbolically that is the significance of this extremely chaotic, ground-shifting, mind-boggling political campaign. Clinton and Trump are symbols – at least from my perspective – of our collective energies, of all we have done wrong as a nation, of all we are losing within a once high functioning society, of hidden desires to return to eras long past, and of fears associated with going into the unknown. This election also represents what we imagine as our potential for a positive future – but the underlying rage and anger that we witness in so many people tells me that few actually trust that anything will change. They know it in their collective gut and their rage gives voice to their hopelessness and their feelings of helplessness. We all know those feelings these days to some extent.

Like all leaders that have arisen in times of great change – from Mahatma Gandhi to Nelson Mandala to Winston Churchill and Franklin Roosevelt to the nightmares of Adolph Hitler and Joseph Stalin – such leaders rise on the wild spinning energies of the collective grace and psychic free radicals in the atmosphere that the societies-at-large generate. We are the engines that give life to those that emerge from the crowds. We are the residents of the societies-at-large. Leaders and candidates – whether from the past or Clinton and Trump – are not apples that randomly fall from trees. They are grand reflections of who we are and our responses to this moment in evolution and how we are handling it. They embody our collective values and morals – or lack thereof. Consider that Gandhi lifted the people of India into a conscious awareness of what their anger represented: They wanted radical change and freedom from British rule. Rather than hate each other and the British, he offered a positive means of channeling that collective energy into a positive transition. But like all transitions, it came at a price in the beginning stages because those who were comfortable in the old way, those who liked being superior to the Indian people (aka the British), did not want the system to change. Rulers never want a system to change and they will fight to the death to hold the high ground. But they always – and I do mean always – end up losing. Evolution itself inevitably defeats them.

We have approached that moment in history at which believing in any expression of superiority flows against the course of evolution. We are in the holistic age now. Your own body pulsates with that truth – and your body is the micro reflection of the macro collective Earth. You body will not heal if you do not approach your health – indeed your entire life – from a holistic template. All life systems are directing us to merge into a conscious community of human beings. Our religions are breaking down, our national boundaries our evaporating, and our technology is serving the creation of an intimate humanity. We have to move forward toward wholeness if for no other reason than all the problems we now face – from having the capacity to destroy ourselves through our own foolish nuclear weaponry – to refugees to food and water distribution to climate change and so many more – require every nation’s participation in creating solutions. This shift is epoch is size and scope. I believe it is greatest challenge in the history of civilization itself – the evolutionary leap to become a global humanity. We do not even have a thought in our head capable of seriously considering that. And we ourselves won’t make it to that Promised Land. But that is the path every molecule in us is on, magnetically, psychically and spiritually. All choices that we make that oppose that holistic map run counter to that archetypal map that now governs our psyche and soul.

No wonder this election has driven people to near madness. Deep in the blood and bones of people, they know that this election is not an ordinary one. It is a choice between paths of destiny – one going backwards and one going forwards. Neither person is popular because no one – absolutely no one – wants to be on this path. No one wants to vote for either because no one wants this election to be an encounter with the force of Destiny. But it is. So we can scream about emails or women’s issues or whatever – but that’s all nonsense. Utter blather. The real power is unfolding in the unseen world. Indeed, the power is unfolding in your very biology.

Choose wisely.

WASHINGTON, July 4— A Chicago-based agent of the Federal Bureau of Investigation has acknowledged that he and other white colleagues planned a campaign of ''retribution'' against a black agent, Donald Rochon, whose case has prompted a national debate over racism in the bureau.

Newly released F.B.I. documents also show that the white agent, Gary W. Miller, has conceded that in 1985 he forged Mr. Rochon's signature on an application for death and dismemberment insurance for the Rochon family.

Mr. Rochon has described the unsolicited insurance policy as a death threat. Mr. Miller, who was suspended without pay for two weeks as a result of that incident and others aimed at Mr. Rochon, has denied that he was trying to harass the black agent. Agents Admit Harassment

The disclosures, contained in court papers filed here Friday, amount to the first public acknowledgment by the bureau that white agents may have participated in harassment of Mr. Rochon in Chicago, where he was assigned from 1984 to 1986.

The newly released documents are bound to cause further embarrassment for the bureau, which has been criticized by Congress over the Rochon case and over other discrimination claims involving black and Hispanic employees. More than half of the F.B.I.'s Hispanic agents have joined in a separate lawsuit against the bureau, charging that they faced discrimination in hiring and promotion.

Mr. Rochon has said that while he and his family were living in Chicago, their safety was repeatedly threatened in anonymous telephone calls and obscene, racist letters from white F.B.I. agents.

The Justice Department and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission have found that Mr. Rochon was the victim of ''blatant racial harassment'' in the F.B.I.'s Omaha office in 1983 and 1984. In one incident, someone in the Omaha office taped a picture of an ape's head over a photograph of Mr. Rochon's son.

Mr. Rochon has long contended that the later incidents in Chicago, which are the subject of an investigation by a Federal grand jury, were more serious than the harassment in Omaha. Charges Rights Violations

The newly released documents were made available to Mr. Rochon's lawyer, David Kairys of Philadelphia, in preparation for trial on a civil lawsuit filed by Mr. Rochon in Federal District Court in Washington. The suit charges the bureau and several white F.B.I. officials in Chicago and Omaha with violations of Federal civil rights laws.

''It's quite significant,'' Mr. Kairys said of the F.B.I. documents. ''This corroborates what Don Rochon has been saying all along. It corroborates that there was a conspiracy among F.B.I. agents to racially harass Donald and his family.''

The documents, which include the records of an internal investigation of Mr. Rochon's charges, make it clear that Mr. Rochon became the foc
