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’

Two cops have been stripped of their guns and shields following the death of a college student, killed when a drunken off-duty rookie cop drove onto a Brooklyn sidewalk, the Daily News has learned.

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

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.”

(NASA satellite shot of massive wildfires burning in Central Chile on January 21 of 2017. Image source: LANCE MODIS.)

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. Image source: NOAA.)

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

Exposing the US Crime Cabal Spy Ring that’s now Paving the Way to WWIII

by Joachim Hagopian

source of featured graphic : WWIII horizon


My last article focused on concrete evidence recently unfolding that confirms the near four decade long Bush-Clinton-Obama pedo crime cabal empire is collapsing. Every day the elite is growing more desperate that its age old crimes are being uncovered like never before, and with a vacuum created by the recent death of globalist kingpin David Rockefeller, the planetary controllers are recklessly pushing back with near daily acts of terrorism – the London false flag attack, the suicide bombing on the St. Petersburg subway followed by US backed terrorists’ chemical weapons gassing more Syrian children falsely blaming Assad again , and now the 59 US tomahawk missiles fired upon the Syrian army, and the surging North Korean “threat.” With their crimes against humanity in full display now, it’s more than clear the globalists are moving in for their kill. All this horrific violence and worldwide upheaval takes the focus off the Western pedophilia infested, thoroughly busted international crime cabal.

This presentation will examine the latest bricks in the wall to quietly fall, further crumbling the Rothschild-Rockefeller controlled Western empire’s final death throes as the demonic driving force behind the world’s descent into madness, vis-à-vis the coming civil war on the North American and European continents and a Third World War against the Eastern alliance timed with dominos crashing the theft-debt-based slavery central banking system. We are witnessing the elite’s frantic, last gasp effort to retain its satanic power, resisting the changeover from evilly misused US global dominance based on a fiat US dollar currency reserve to a multipolar world based on a return to the gold standard.

From all this current cataclysmic flux came act one in Bill and Hillary’s treasonous drama – selling America out to foreign national interests starting with Bill’s 1996 presidential reelection. Chinagate has been around for over 20 years, involving President Clinton accepting illegal campaign contributions from China. Of course the Clintons would repeat this same “pay-to-play” scheme ad nauseam with the real Russiagate, Israelgate, Saudigate, Qatargate and on and on, allowing the world’s wealthiest bidders to stake claim buying pieces of “enriched” America as part of the globalist plan to morph our nation into a totalitarian run banana republic. The treasonous irony is that all these nations, minus the two cold war exceptions, have been US Empire’s chief partners-in-crime as the biggest state sponsors of Wahhabi Takfirist terrorism (ISIS/al Qaeda).

The Chinagate scandal used several Chinese Americans as the main go-betweens to funnel foreign money into Clinton coffers during his 1996 election. One originally from Taiwan was a naturalized American citizen named Johnny Chung, who eventually was investigated by the FBI, prosecuted by the Clinton Justice Department and sentenced to five years’ probation for campaign finance violation. During a two year span in the mid-90’s the modest Southern California businessman made 57 trips to the White House, 8 off the books, to meet with Bill but most often with Hillary.

Though Clinton law enforcement vigorously prosecuted Chung and other Chinese Americans of relative modest means, and even attempted to use Chung to arrest a Chinese general visiting the US, the Clintons and their notoriously corrupt Democratic National Committee that eagerly received millions of dollars, never hesitated nor questioned where all the riches were coming from. Yet the Clintons and DNC absolutely knew all along that the dirty money originated in China and that accepting funds from a foreign nation or interest is clear violation of federal law. Yet not one person from the receiving end of this lawbreaking operation was ever investigated or charged, much less punished for their treasonous crimes.

… which brings us to Bill Clinton’s lead China trade liaison within his administration – Secretary of Commerce Ron Brown, abruptly killed (along with 34 others) in 1996 when a US Air Force plane allegedly flew off course into a mountainside in Croatia, seven months prior to the November election. This highly suspicious crash and Brown’s untimely death became yet another suspected Clinton hit in response to Brown’s pending disclosure of the illegal Chinese campaign contributions. Air Force pathologists went on record noting that, unlike the other crash victims, Brown sustained a gunshot wound to the head yet the White House insisted on no autopsy accompanied by a whole slew of other atypical anomalies associated with this atypical aircraft disaster. With the infamously long trail of the Clinton body count, employees turned corpses all have one thing in common, damaging dirt on the filthy Clintons going back to their Arkansas days, where telling the truth about the Clintons became the surefire way to end up dead.

With Brown’s likely murder and three attempts on Johnny Chung’s life, in 1998 Mr. Chung feared becoming the latest Clinton statistic, especially when the FBI suddenly dropped him from its witness protection program two months prior to Chung’s scheduled appearance at a Congressional investigative hearing. So Chung made a video interview as both a life insurance policy and a last resort to tell the truth, distributing it to family and friends for release to media should he join the dozens of others who suddenly met with foul play. Today Johnny Chung is believed to still be alive quietly living in China.

Yet another Chinese American who temporarily “made good” by the Clinton crime cartel was John Huang, promoted by Bill in 1993 as deputy commerce secretary before transferring over to the lucrative DNC where he raised tens of thousands of dollars from foreign Chinese investors. Ultimately Huang pled guilty to one felony count of illegal campaign finance law.

The one central figure from China in this 21-year old scandal is a real estate billionaire from Macau named Ng Lap Seng, who began donating funds in 1994, a single financial drop-off of $1.2 million made towards Clinton’s 1996 reelection, laundered through a Clinton associate Chinese restaurant owner living in Arkansas Charlie Trie. In 1997 ABC News reported that Ng made at least a half dozen trips to the White House, The Daily Beast reporting ten such visits between June 1994 and October 1996, confirmed per a Senate report. But unlike Johnny Chung and Charlie Trie who as American citizens pled guilty to violating campaign finance laws, both cooperating with subsequent investigations and duly punished, Ng Lap Seng holding close ties to the Beijing government refused to come to the US and, as the scandal front man, be confronted with China’s overt attempt to interfere with the US electoral process by influencing the 1996 election outcome. In the late 1990’s while Bill was president, Ng was allowed to flee the US to avoid reckoning. Like the Clintons, because of his money and power, the Macau gambling tycoon also was protected and, for his criminal part, immune from ever serving any jail time.

With chummy photos depicting Ng with both the Clintons and even one with Obama on public record, demonstrating a still cordial relationship with the Clinton-Obama crime cabal, both Obama and the Clintons assured Ng that he would neither be questioned nor arrested should he return to the US after escaping in the late 1990’s to avoid Chinagate prosecution. Thus, in 2015 the Chinese billionaire finally began flying back to his $3 million New York City residence, only to have FBI Director James Comey for once acting in defiance against his superiors, actually arrest the billionaire in September 2015. Ng was caught carrying a suitcase full of cash payoffs intended to bribe UN officials upon his “safe” reentry to the United States. A criminal complaint was filed against him in federal court charging him with bribery. Ng had been under FBI surveillance for several prior months making a series of trips by private jet, each time carrying a cash bundle that Ng falsely claimed was for buying real estate, artwork and gambling. Per the federal complaint, on one trip to New York in June 2015, Ng dropped off a suitcase filled with nearly a half million dollars in cash when he met “Business Associate-1” in Queens.

Speaking of “Business Associate-1,” the scandalous Clinton plot thickened when a prominent UN official that Ng was attempting to bribe suddenly was found dead in his New York City suburban home in June last year, a scant few weeks prior to DNC leaker Seth Rich’s untimely murder in DC. The former president of the UN General Assembly as well as former UN ambassador from Antigua and Barbados, John Ashe was a key witness scheduled to testify against the Clintons in the Ng bribery corruption case. Ashe had been accused of accepting a $500,000 bribe from Ng and a total of over $1 million from others as well. Authorities initially declared his cause of death a heart attack, but later disclosed that Ashe’s neck was crushed from an alleged barbell accident. Any way you look at it, it smells foul. Silencing Ashe and his critical testimony linking Ng to the Clintons in a trial leading up to last November’s election couldn’t have come at a more opportune moment for Hillary Clinton.

Meanwhile, last year in the thick of Hillary’s run for president as her corrupt, pay-to-play Clinton Foundation was being exposed through WikiLeaks, Ng Lap Seng managed to avoid further questioning over his past Clinton bribes by the House Oversight Committee despite Congress’ power to issue Ng a subpoena. But he was apparently permitted to dodge that bullet due to his New York pretrial hearings. Along with Ashe’s abrupt nonappearance in court, not having to testify before Congress effectively prevented the Chinese kingpin from the Clinton’s original pay-to-play operation to bring out any further “bad” publicity to Hillary’s already scandal-ridden campaign.

In October 2015 Ng’s New York City judge granted the billionaire house arrest status while awaiting his trial finally set to begin next month. Monitored by GPS, the federal judge has allowed him to continue living the life of luxury from within his gilded Manhattan cage. Apparently since the Macau businessman had gotten away scot free bribing the Clintons in the 1990’s, the billionaire was emboldened to attempt to allegedly bribe UN officials to “arrange” the construction of a UN convention center in his hometown back in China. Ng’s defense team claims his charges are geopolitically motivated to halt construction on a Macau UN branch in order to diminish China’s growing influence amongst developing nations where China is heavily investing in Third World infrastructure in exchange for needed raw materials. Ostensibly Ng’s current legal problems in the States are completely unrelated to the millions he spent on bribing the Clintons two decades ago.

Speaking of infrastructure, China is spearheading the elite’s agenda to centralize energy on a globalized power grid. And its lead facilitator in the US is none other than the Senate majority leader’s wife Elaine Chao, who was deputy transportation secretary under George Bush senior, the labor secretary throughout the George W. Bush years, and is now transportation secretary under Trump. Her father is a Chinese mogul who owns a large shipping company out of Hong Kong. A conflict of interest? On top of that, 90 pounds of cocaine were discovered by Colombian authorities on board one of her father’s cargo ships in 2014. Chao’s father’s transportation company is shrouded in secrecy with offices in New York and Hong Kong, but a flag ship fleet operates out of Liberia to bypass standard maritime labor laws and registers its vessels in the Marshall Islands to avoid paying taxes where all company records are safely sealed from US authorities. This is hardly an “America first” company.

As labor secretary, Chao failed to enforce existing wage laws, weakened labor unions and worker safety conditions and made time-and-a-half overtime wages less available. In 2009 labor department staffers hosted “a good riddance” party at the end of her reign because she so favored owner-management over the basic worker rights of the American people.

Chao is now actively recruiting and inviting private Chinese corporations and other foreign investors to America to become the driving force engine behind Trump’s $1 trillion allocation (when an estimated near $5 trillion is barely deemed adequate) to upgrade the crumbling US infrastructure. This public-private partnership ploy fails to make “America first,” or great, but is only further selling off our country to yet more foreign bidders and Chao’s Chinese connections are salivating.

Under UN Agenda 21 and Agenda 2030, our globalist presidents from the last five administrations have all been undermining US national sovereignty at every turn, granting increasing authority to the United Nations and America’s biggest investor China on their dystopian, “utopian” vision of global socialism. A covert land grabbing scheme currently using eminent domain is the pretext that will be used to forcefully relocate American citizens off their private properties to designated internment and resettlement (aka FEMA) camps and large coastal urban high rise zones. With the nation’s vast interior becoming a designated wilderness area, devoid of human habitation, it’s been speculated it will be handed over to China to extract natural resources as NWO’s debtor nation payback. Obama’s opened the door allowing China to buy oil and gas rights.

Last year a naturalized Chinese American citizen born in China who infiltrated the FBI and gained top security clearance was arrested for selling US trade secrets to China since at least 2006 in exchange for cash payments, international travel and occasional prostitutes. Last August a 47-year old 20-year FBI employee Kun Shan “Joey” Chun pled guilty for illegally acting as an agent for a foreign government. His supplying sensitive and restricted information to Chinese intelligence operatives and then lying about it could have resulted in a 10-year prison sentence but under a plea deal reached in February this year, the former FBI technician-Chinese spy received just two years in federal prison.

In a related spying for China case, last week another Clinton plant employed in the state department since 1999 and under her boss Hillary in 2009 gained top security clearance, just got busted by the FBI for also supplying economic and diplomatic information and failing to report contact with agents of the Chinese government. 60-year old Washington DC resident Candace Claiborne received “tens of thousands of dollars in gifts and benefits” from the Beijing government. In addition to gifts, Chinese intelligence operatives also provided multiple electronic cash transfers, paid vacations, and paid tuition for a co-conspirator relative studying fashion in China. She is believed to have been sharing top secret information with Chinese spies since 2011. The veteran state department official held positions in various diplomatic posts around the world, including Iraq, Sudan and China. Within the state department Claiborne worked in the Office of Caucasus Affairs and Regional Conflicts, part of the largest geographical Bureau of European and Eurasian Affairs. The Clinton-China spy was installed to forward Chinese interests in Armenia, Georgia and Azerbaijan, where the volatility over disputed territory between Armenia and Azerbaijan could potentially ignite WWIII. Claiborne is due back in court on April 18th. Her felony crimes carry a maximum sentence of 20 years for obstruction of justice and 5 years for making false statements to the FBI.

The Kremlin’s Foreign Intelligence Service maintains that these two above arrests are just the beginning. The Clintons have infiltrated throughout the US government a massive spy ring that’s been allegedly operating since the 1990’s. Starting with Chun and Claiborne, the Department of Justice and FBI have begun arresting treasonous members of the Clinton-China spy ring network. This latest uncovered Clinton crime operation harkens back to their 1996 Chinagate scandal, considered to be the most serious scandal in US history; that is until this year’s PedoGate, the global epidemic involving child sex trafficking rings that the Clintons are also directly linked to.

Also to provide background information that’s led to today’s international crisis with North Korea and how potential nuclear holocaust fits in with long-term globalist objectives is the fact that Bill and Hillary Clinton gave space technology away to China, that then passed secrets on to nations like North Korea and Pakistan, enabling other countries to advance their nuclear weapons capability. In 1996 President Bill Clinton approved radiated hard chips necessary for waging nuclear war. There’s nothing new here, the Clintons have always placed trade and moneymaking above national security.

But that was just the beginning. Author David Horowitz asserts that aside from funneling millions from China into Bill’s 1996 reelection campaign, the Chinagate scandal in exchange facilitated:

[The Clinton] administration’s voluntary release of all the secrets of America’s nuclear tests, combined with the systematic theft of the secrets that were left as a result of its lax security controls, effectively wiped out America’s technological edge.

The Clintons also lifted the security ban in order to give China our supercomputers, also a prerequisite to nuclear warfare. In the first 9 months of 1998, nine times the number of supercomputers were delivered to China than all the previous years of the Clinton presidency combined. Traitors in the White House were determined to give China the advantage to eclipse America as the most powerful nation in the world.

This endgame outcome was envisioned long ago when Rockefeller globalists financed Mao’s victory over Chang Kai-shek in 1949, then sent Kissinger in the early 1970’s to set up the imperialistic corporate invasion tapping China’s unlimited slave labor in order to eventually sap our once vibrant middle class and manufacturing sector. Long in advance of the current global crisis that now has humanity teetering on the edge of World War III, the planetary rulers methodically used their chosen pawns like the Bushes, the Clintons and Obama to undermine and destroy the United States of America.

Comey urges health systems to work closely with FBI to combat cyberattacks



 May 09, 2017 |

FBI Director James Comey on May 8 encouraged hospital and health system leaders to form connections with law enforcement.

"We will be open and honest with you and treat you as what you are: victims," Mr. Comey said at the American Hospital Association's Annual Membership Meeting in Washington, D.C.

He emphasized hospitals and health systems should not only promptly report security incidents to the FBI, but also proactively reach out and build a relationship with their local FBI field office. This familiarity will help law enforcement officials respond more quickly in the event of a security incident, according to Mr. Comey.

















Whitey Bulger: I Was a Guinea Pig for CIA Drug Experiments

By James "Whitey" Bulger


In 1957, while a prisoner at the Atlanta penitentiary, I was recruited by Dr. Carl Pfeiffer of Emory University to join a medical project that was researching a cure for schizophrenia. For our participation we would receive three days of good time for each month on the project. Each week we would be locked in a secure room in the basement of the prison hospital, in an area where mental patients were housed. We went in from 9 a.m. Tuesday to 9 a.m. Wednesday. We were injected with massive doses of LSD-25.

In minutes the drug would take over, and about eight or nine men — Dr. Pfeiffer and several men in suits who were not doctors — would give us tests to see how we reacted. Eight convicts in a panic and paranoid state. Total loss of appetite. Hallucinating. The room would change shape. Hours of paranoia and feeling violent. We experienced horrible periods of living nightmares and even blood coming out of the walls. Guys turning to skeletons in front of me. I saw a camera change into the head of a dog. I felt like I was going insane.

The men in suits would be in a room and hook me up to machines, asking questions like: Did you ever kill anyone? Would you kill someone? Two men went psychotic. They had all the symptoms of schizophrenia. They had to be pried loose from under their beds, growling, barking and frothing at the mouth. They put them in a strip cell down the hall. I never saw or heard of them again. They failed the Babinski test.




Lots of tests that have caused me sleeping problems and nightmares to the present. They told us we were helping find a cure for schizophrenia. When it was all over, everyone would feel suicidal and depressed, wrung out emotionally. Time would stand still. I tried to quit, but Dr. Pfeiffer would appeal to me: “Please, you’re my best subject, and we are close to finding the cure.”

Years later, when I read the book The Search for the Manchurian Candidate, which came out in 1979 and was written by State Department whistle-blower John Marks, I found out there was a CIA project code-named MK Ultra. The project was a violation of my rights, using prisoners for dangerous tests. I was angry reading that because I’d never mentioned how I felt hallucinating. I kept silent because I thought they might commit me to a mental institution.



I never slept more than two or three hours a night, waking up in cold sweats with side effects. The tests damaged my sleep and gave me nightmares. I had to sleep with the lights on and only for a few hours at a time. The government used us and never tried to help us out after injecting us with government LSD. I’ve had brain scans that told me I was damaged by the tests. The government did a number on us and walked. If anybody opened a shop selling LSD in my neighborhood he would have lost his life.

Prison has changed for the worse. Longer sentences, no mandatory release, no parole after one-third of your time. More laws covering weirdos. They are everywhere you look. In this place they banded together and s

Social media reminds the FBI director of a dive bar filled with yelling and opinions - and it must be protected as free speech, he said.

During a speech Monday, FBI Director James Comey told the Anti-Defamation League that he does not tweet but uses the social media platform to read what is being said about the FBI.

"It feels like I'm all of a sudden immediately in every dive bar in America, where I can hear everybody screaming at the television set," Comey said. "But it is free speech, you don't have to like it, you don't have to agree with it, but we will protect it."


















High school seniors entering service to be saluted

May 9, 2017 • 




With graduation just around the corner, the Greater Bristol Veterans Council at its annual salute dinner will honor local seniors who have decided to serve their country.

The dinner, which honors graduates who are making the transition into the military or military academies, will take place on Friday, May 19, 4:30 p.m. at Nuchie’s Restaurant.

At least 30 graduating men and women from Bristol and other surrounding communities are expected to attend the dinner, where they will receive special recognition from the Veterans Council as well as a red, white, and blue tassel.

“When you put the uniform on, you don’t know if you’re putting it on at peacetime or wartime. You don’t know where you’re going to be sent, and the families don’t know where their children are going to be sent, so it’s stressful,” said Greater Bristol Veterans Council Chairman Russ Trudel. “This is the first step into their adult lives.”

During the dinner, Al Terzi, an Air Force Intelligence veteran, will serve as the MC, while Army veteran Michael Heimbach will serve as the guest speaker.

Currently the vice president of Global Security and Facilities Operations at ESPN, Heimbach set the foundation for his 20-year career in the FBI while serving in the Army.

The veteran also is the father of a Marine Corps officer who is currently serving overseas.

Trudel said a guest speaker like Heimbach could provide extra comfort to not only the graduates, but also the parents.

The FBI has acknowledged its analysis of hair in a 1994 bank robbery case in La Crosse County was flawed. Patrick W. Greer, who had denied involvement in the robbery, was found guilty and sentenced to 25 years in prison.

Wisconsin Department of Corrections


FBI whistleblower Frederic Whitehurst is credited with exposing fraud and misconduct at the FBI laboratory, including unscientific hair analysis. Thousands of cases are now under review nationwide in large part because of Whitehurst, including at least 19 in Wisconsin. He called the FBI’s use of false and misleading hair analysis a “national tragedy.”

National Whistleblower Center

Here’s how the FBI got it wrong

The FBI, the New York-based Innocence Project and the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers are examining nearly 3,000 cases nationwide in which the FBI may have misused microscopic hair comparison.

The review so far found statements and findings that “exceeded the limits of the science” in more than 90 percent of the cases. The errors fall into three broad categories:

Claiming a ‘match’

What they did: Examiners stated or implied that the evidentiary hair could be associated with a specific individual to the exclusion of all others.

Why it was wrong: Absent DNA testing, hairs are not unique enough to be associated with one person, even by looking at them under a high-powered microscope.

Claiming a statistical weight

What they did: Examiners assigned a statistical weight, probability or likelihood that the questioned hair originated from a particular source.

Why it was wrong: No such weight can be assigned because no one knows how many people have microscopically identical hair.

Citing experience to bolster findings

What they did: Examiners cited statistics such as the number of hair cases they or the FBI lab had handled to bolster the findings.

Why it was wrong: Unlike DNA, there is no database of hair profiles. Analysts cannot memorize every hair they have ever examined. And comparing vast numbers of hairs — even billions — does not change the fact that an unknown number of people have hair that looks identical.

Top ICE Official to Leave for Job at Private Prison That Got Lucrative Government Contracts

The second-in-command at Immigration and Customs Enforcement is leaving his job of overseeing detention and deportations to take a position with a private prison.

Daniel Ragsdale temporarily served as the head of ICE until President Trump replaced him in January. He then became the deputy director.

Ragsdale will be working for GEO Group, a Boca-Raton-based private prison company, the Daily Beast reports. His position is unclear.

“While you may be losing me as a colleague, please know that I will continue to be a strong advocate for you and your mission,” Ragsdale wrote in an email to his ICE colleagues on April 28.

Ragsdale plans to step down on May 27.

“Dan is a person of great honor and a strong ethical code,” said a source close to Ragsdale. “I have no doubt he will bring great deal of integrity to the process to make sure organizations like GEO are complying with the rules and regulations regarding folks who are in detention because of their immigration status.”

Neither Ragdale nor the GEO Group responded to requests for interviews.

ICE is no stranger to GEO, which has lucrative contracts with the federal agency. The timing coincides with President Trump pledging to increase the use of private prisons,

SANTA CRUZ >> UC Santa Cruz has agreed to the demands of the Afrikan Black Student Alliance after a three-day occupation of Kerr Hall, the primary administration building on campus.

To loud cheers of victory, UCSC director of News and Media Relations Scott Hernandez-Jason stood before hundreds of students at Kerr Hall about 5:30 p.m. Thursday and announced that the university was committed to better serving its African, black and Caribbean-identified students.

To illustrate this, UCSC Chancellor George Blumenthal agreed to the Alliance’s demands and made the following commitments:


• UCSC committed to extending up to a four-year housing guarantee to all students from underrepresented communities who applied to and live in the Rosa Parks African American Theme House.

• UCSC committed to converting the first floor lounge area of the Rosa Parks African American Theme House from housing back to a community lounge space.

• USCS committed to painting the exterior of the Rosa Parks African American Theme House in the Pan-Afrikan colors red, gold and green.

• USCS committed to delivering a mandatory “educational diversity” orientation to all incoming freshmen and transfer students.

Police union examines incident at Pasadena hotel involving a former USC dean after an officer is disciplined
Dr. Carmen A. Puliafito

The union that represents the Pasadena police officer who was disciplined for not filing a prompt report on a drug overdose witnessed by the then-dean of USC’s medical school is conducting a legal review of the incident, the labor organization said Thursday.

A tip about the March 2016 overdose of a young woman at the Hotel Constance in Pasadena led to a Times investigation that found that Dr. Carmen Puliafito associated with criminals and drug abusers who said they used methamphetamine and other drugs with him while he headed the Keck School of Medicine.

Puliafito, 66, resigned as dean three weeks after the overdose. USC kept the renowned ophthalmologist on faculty and he continued to accept patients at university medical offices, according to a USC website. The overdose suffered by Sarah Warren, who survived after being rushed to a hospital, was not publicly reported until The Times published its findings Monday.

Alleged conduct by former USC dean 'horrible and despicable,' med school head tells angry students »

Officer Alfonso Garcia did not write a required report on the overdose until three months after the incident — in response to repeated requests by The Times for information about the episode.

Garcia did not respond to an interview request made through the Pasadena city manager’s office Thursday. He otherwise could not be reached.

The president of the Pasadena Police Officers Assn., Sgt. Roger Roldan, said in emails that attorneys for the union are reviewing the circumstances surrounding the overdose. Roldan declined to provide any details about the review, including whether it was aimed at challenging the discipline of Garcia.

The type of discipline has not been disclosed.

Last year, a Pasadena police spokeswoman said Garcia’s failure to file the report was a “training issue,” but offered no details. This week, city spokesman William Boyer said Garcia was disciplined.

City Manager Steve Mermell said in an email Thursday that the Times’ findings “have raised many questions. As it relates to the city, I have made a public commitment to review the facts and circumstances involving city personnel. I expect to have more information in the near future.”

Mermell did not elaborate.

Puliafito has not responded to numerous interview requests. In an email shortly after resigning the $1.1-million-a-year deanship, Puliafito told The Times he made the move voluntarily to pursue a biotech job.

In the wake of The Times’ investigation, USC has said that Puliafito is on leave from the university and is no longer seeing patients. Puliafito’s successor as dean, Dr. Rohit Varma, on Wednesday told a gathering of students, many of them angry about the affair, that Puliafito’s conduct is the subject of several internal investigations.

The Medical Board of California has said it is also investigating Puliafito on the basis of The Times’ reporting.

In the months after the overdose, authorities did not release Warren’s name. The Times identified her through interviews, social media and property records.

Now 22, Warren has been in an Orange County drug treatment program since November, and said she no longer has contact with Puliafito. She told The Times in interviews that she and Puliafito had been partying at the hotel for two days. Then she “took too much GHB” — gamma-hydroxybutyrate, the so-called date-rape drug that some users take in lower doses for its euphoric effect. Warren said the drug left her “completely incapacitated.”

After she awoke in the hospital six hours later, Puliafito picked her up, and “we went back to the hotel and got another room and continued the party,” she said.

Puliafito and his much younger acquaintance captured many of their exploits together in videos and photos. Sources allowed The Times to review dozens of the images on condition the videos not be published. They were consistent with Warren’s account of drug use at the Hotel Constance.

An overdose, a young companion, drug-fueled parties: The secret life of USC med school dean »

The police confiscated a little more than a gram of meth in the hotel room. No arrests were made, and Warren said the police never interviewed her.

A week after the March 4, 2016, overdose, a witness filed an anonymous complaint through a city website urging Pasadena authorities to investigate Puliafito and the police handling of the incident, according to a copy of the complaint obtained through the California Public Records Act.

Three days later, the same witness phoned the office of USC President C.L. Max Nikias and told two employees about Puliafito’s role in the hotel incident. The witness spoke to The p

Texas Cop Just Indicted On First Degree Murder For Killing Unarmed black teen With AR-15


We were sentenced to death for crimes we did not commit. Collectively we spent more than 100 years on death row. In the last three years, three innocent men have been released from death row in Ohio after their wrongful convictions were finally exposed. Ohio has freed a total of nine innocent men from death row, but we have no idea how many more still sit on death row. One estimate by the National Academy of Sciences suggests that as many as 4% of death row prisoners could be innocent.

Despite this shameful record, Ohio has scheduled 27 executions after a three and half year hiatus.

Five of us--all death row exonerees--have started a petition to the governor asking him to halt these executions. Will you please join us? Please sign here.

The first of these executions is scheduled for July 26, 2017. With the state’s history of wrongful convictions and botched executions, this rush to resume executions is risky, unnecessary, and it is bad for business.

We need Americans from around the country to join us in telling Gov. Kasich to stop these executions. Please sign here.

Local teens got a chance to see just what it's like to be an FBI agent

6:31 PM. EDT July 21,
CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The secret is out. Some local teenagers are getting the 'inside scoop' on what it's like to be an FBI agent.

Today marks the last day of the week-long FBI Teen Academy held at the offices of the FBI's Charlotte facility.

"We have some other techniques that we're showing them," said agent Kevin DeShazo. "That they get a little bit better in-depth understanding of what we're doing."

Activities include dusting for fingerprints to figuring out the trajectory of a bullet.

"You can tell like where the bullet came from and where the shooter was standing," mentioned academy attendee, Ciara Weaver. "I thought that was pretty interesting."

And for these high-schoolers, some are hoping to, one day, bear the title and badge of "FBI Special Agent."

Attendee Shannon Gardner said, "Coming here truly helped me learn that this is what I want to do

Former Youngstown city worker and FBI agent jailed

Posted: Dec 04, 2014 2:21 PM EST
Updated: Dec 09, 2014 5:13 PM EST

After lengthy legal battles, a former Youngstown city employee who was at one time an FBI agent has been sent to jail.

A visiting judge sitting in Youngstown Municipal Court ordered on Wednesday that 49-year-old Sheila Lawson immediately begin serving a 100 day sentence in the Mahoning County Jail.

The judge found that Lawson, a former Youngstown Municipal Court administrator, violated terms of probation for an earlier conviction of domestic violence.

In March 2012, Lawson was arrested for hitting her father during an argument at their Youngstown home. She was convicted of domestic violence the following September and sentenced to 100 days in jail.

The Seventh District Court of Appeals subsequently denied Lawson's appeal of the misdemeanor conviction in March, and the Ohio Supreme Court refused to hear the case in July.

Lawson served as Youngstown Municipal Court administrator from December 2008 until March 2009, when she was terminated.

According to documents filed in connection with a federal civil suit that Lawson filed against the city when she was fired from her court job, Lawson was employed with The Federal Bureau of Investigation's Washington D.C. office from July 2002 through July 2006 as a Special Agent, Acting Unit Chief, and Supervisory Special Agent

Branding Hoover's FBI
How the Boss's PR Men Sold the Bureau to America

Matthew Cecil University of Kansas Press 2016

Hunting down America’s public enemies was just one of the FBI’s jobs. Another—perhaps more vital and certainly more covert—was the job of promoting the importance and power of the FBI, a process that Matthew Cecil unfolds clearly for the first time in this eye-opening book. The story of the PR men who fashioned the Hoover era, Branding Hoover’s FBI reveals precisely how the Bureau became a monolithic organization of thousands of agents who lived and breathed a well-crafted public relations message, image, and worldview. Accordingly, the book shows how the public was persuaded—some would say conned—into buying and even bolstering that image.

Just fifteen years after a theater impresario coined the term “public relations,” the FBI under J. Edgar Hoover began practicing a sophisticated version of the activity. Cecil introduces those agency PR men in Washington who put their singular talents to work by enforcing and amplifying Hoover's message. Louis B. Nichols, overseer of the Crime Records Section for more than twenty years, was a master of bend-your-ear networking. Milton A. Jones brought meticulous analysis to bear on the mission; Fern Stukenbroeker, a gift for eloquence; and Cartha “Deke” DeLoach, a singular charm and ambition. Branding Hoover’s FBI examines key moments when this dedicated cadre, all working under the protective wing of Associate Director Clyde Tolson, manipulated public perceptions of the Bureau (was the Dillinger triumph really what it seemed?). In these critical moments, the book allows us to understand as never before how America came to see the FBI’s law enforcement successes and overlook the dubious accomplishments, such as domestic surveillance, that truly defined the Hoover era.

“This unique, creative, and excellent study makes a significant contribution to the literature on the FBI. Cecils brilliant mining of FBI personnel files has resulted in a fascinating, richly detailed, and wholly satisfying look at the inner workings of Hoover’s FBI.An outstanding work on an important subject.”

—Douglas Charles, author of Hoover’s War on Gays: Exposing the FBI’s “Sex Deviates” Program

“Branding Hoover’s FBI is a path-breaking assessment of former FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover’s public relations initiatives. Cecil’s brilliantly researched study documents Hoover’s success in transforming the image of the FBI from a minor and suspect to a powerful and autonomous agency, in the process reshaping American politics in the twentieth century. His thoughtful monograph has particular contemporary relevance highlighting how control over information undermined a constitutional system based on accountability and transparency. ”

“In the present day, when Edward Snowden’s journalistic salvo has exposed the National Security Agency for peering over every digital shoulder, Hoover’s FBI offers key insights into the origins of the still contentious boundaries between the members of the Fourth Estate and the modern police state that Hoover began to build 90 years ago.”

—Annals of Iowa

“Ultimately, as a history book, Hoover’s FBI and the Fourth Estate should be required for all young and aspiring journalists. Just as Hoover and the FBI used journalists to burnish a public image that lasted for decades, so too are today’s reporters subject to similar forces, especially inside access to get the story. Let us hope history does not repeat itself here.”

—Journalism & Mass Communication Quarterly

See all reviews...
The Federal Bureau of Investigation was an agency devoted to American ideals, professionalism, and scientific methods, directed by a sage and selfless leader—and anyone who said otherwise was a no-good subversive, bent on discrediting the American way of life. That was the official story, and how J. Edgar Hoover made it stick—running roughshod over those same American ideals—is the story this book tells in full for the first time.

From Hoover's first tentative media contacts in the 1930s to the Bureau's eponymous television series in the 1960s and 1970s, FBI officials labored mightily to control the Bureau's image—efforts that put them not-so-squarely at the forefront of the emerging field of public relations. In the face of any journalistic challenges to the FBI's legitimacy and operations, Hoover was able to create a benign, even heroic counter narrative, thanks in part to his friends in newsrooms. Matthew Cecil's own prodigious investigation through hundreds of thousands of pages from FBI files reveals the lengths to which Hoover and his lackeys went to use the press to hoodwink the American people. Even more sobering is how much help he got from so many in the press.

Conservative journalists like broadcaster Fulton Lewis, Jr. and columnist George Sokolsky positioned themselves as "objective" defenders of Hoover's FBI and were rewarded with access, friendship, and other favors. Some of Hoover's friends even became adjunct-FBI agents, designated as Special Service Contacts who discreetly gathered information for the Bureau. "Enemies," on the other hand, were closely monitored and subjected to operations that disrupted their work or even undermined and ended their careers. Noted journalists like I. F. Stone, George Seldes, James A. Wechsler, and many others found themselves the subjects of FBI investigations and, occasionally, named on the Bureau's "custodial detention index," targeted for arrest in the case of a national emergency.

With experience as a political reporter, a press secretary, and a scholar and professor of journalism and public relations, Matthew Cecil is uniquely qualified to conduct us through the maze of political intrigue and influence peddling that mark—and often mask—the history of the FBI. His work serves as a cautionary tale about how manipulative government agents and compliant journalists can undermine the very institutions and ideals they are tasked with protecting.

Of all federal government agencies in the U.S. from the 1930's to the 1980's, the Federal Bureau of Investigation probably had the most successful media relations program. The Bureau's leaders seemed to be masters at getting good publicity and avoiding bad.By describing a quantitative analysis of the FBI's publicity over that 50-year period, this article attempts to show why those efforts were so successful. It identifies the themes that typified the verbal component of Bureau publicity, and the broad spectrum of mass communication channels that were tapped.

 According to Swearingen, Lee Harvey Oswald did not act alone in assassinating Kennedy as was claimed by the FBI, the Warren Commission and other investigating bodies. Instead, he argues that rogue CIA agents acting in concert with the mafia and certain Cuban exiles plotted to kill Kennedy. Swearingen contends that the conspiracy was covered up by the FBI, an effort that continues to this day through the agency's unwillingness to disclose key details about the events surrounding Kennedy's death.  see

Williams,  Dennis O. Fidelity Bravery Integrity No Way!  Dorrance Publishing Company 2009

In 1979 FBI Supervisory Special Agent Dennis O. Williams moved across the country when he was promoted from the FBI’s Los Angeles Division to a supervisory position at FBI Headquarters. Soon after his arrival, Williams discovered that the mover had defrauded the FBI by billing for a higher weight of his household goods than actually existed. As Williams pursued the matter, he discovered a cover-up at FBI HQ; his attempts to expose this conspiracy resulted in his receiving threats and becoming the subject of retaliation. Though an investigation by the FBI Washington Field Office demonstrated that Williams was correct in his suspicions, the cover-ups continued for decades, eventually leading to a conspiracy to deceive the Senate Judiciary Committee regarding an inquiry into the involvement of Thomas J. Pickard.

Pickard was the acting director of the FBI when 9/11 occurred, despite Williams’ repeated warnings to the White House that Pickard did not have the integrity for such a position. The 9/11 Commission report reflects that the Phoenix Division of the FBI produced a memorandum dated July 10, 2001, advising FBI HQ that an inordinate number of supporters of Osama Bin Laden had attended civil aviation universities and colleges and would be in a position to conduct terror activity against civil aviation targets. Williams believes that Pickard’s testimony that no managers at FBI headquarters saw the Phoenix memo before September 11 constitutes a red flag indicating a conspiracy to defraud the 9/11 Commission.

Ex-NYPD big uncorks Twitter barrage on assistant chief: ‘u will hide in a corner like a b---h’

Wednesday, August 23, 2017, 10:24 PM

A retired NYPD deputy inspector went berserk on social media, threatening the department’s transit bureau chief over a perceived slight.

Corey Pegues, a former commanding officer of the 67th Precinct in Brooklyn, posted bizarre rants in which he called out Chief Joseph Fox — one of the city’s highest-ranking cops.

Pegues, 48, referring to his daughter who is a police officer, posted on Twitter Monday, “Chief Fox, don’t ever say anything to my child!”

He linked that remark to the Twitter pages of NYPD News and Police Commissioner James O’Neill.

Later Monday, on Facebook, he added, “If anyone ever sees that racist punk from the NYPD Chief ‘Kiss A--’ Fox tell him to give me a call, my number still the same. Don’t hide behind your 3 Stars punk come and get at me.

“Address still the same also so come see me and u can bring ya team punk! I’ll be waiting but as usual u will hide in a corner like a b---h!”

Research investigates effects of peer officer leadership on law enforcement ethical climateAll levels of law enforcement are asked to participate in a dissertation study of the current ethical climate in law enforcementAug 17, 2017

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. — On a daily basis, it is possible to read about police officers who commit acts of misconduct, with many of these acts having causes that are unfathomable to other officers and the public. An important area to examine in understanding law enforcement misconduct is the role of peer officer leadership.

Misconduct incidents repeatedly show the effects of unethical peer officers on their fellow officers. While officers receive formal training in ethics throughout their careers, law enforcement subculture related to ethics is learned through informal social processes among officers. These informal social processes linked to ethical climate may lead to ethical perceptions and decisions that may not be in line with normative law enforcement ethical practices and codes of conduct.

This study is being conducted to develop quantitative understandings of ethical climate in law enforcement.

"RACIAL MAITERS": THE FBI'S SECRET FILE ON BLACK AMERICA, 1968-1972. By Kenneth O'Reilly.1 New York: Free Press, 1989. Pp. vii, 456. Cloth, $24.95.

The 1988 movie "Mississippi Burning" depicted the FBI as a protector of blacks. Led by Gene Hackman, its agents streamed into Mississippi to do battle with bigots and the Klan. Although "Mississippi Burning" simply reiterated in a somewhat more fic- tionalized form the heroic portrayal of the FBI's role in the fight for racial justice already presented by Don Whitehead in his 1970 book Attack on Terror3 and by the 1975 made-for-television movie of the same title, it became the target of vocal critics, such as Coretta Scott King, who complained that, among other things, the film grossly overstated both the FBI's commitment to the cause of civil rights and its contributions to the success of the civil rights movement.4 Professor Kenneth O'Reilly's compelling account, Racial Matters, proves beyond question that the critics were correct. O'Reilly dem- onstrates that, far from protecting the civil rights movement, for about a decade in the 1960s and early 1970s the FBI waged war on black America. He leaves in doubt only the motivation behind the Bureau's attack.

Democrat introduces bill to protect FBI director

A Black House Democrat has introduced legislation to prevent future directors of the FBI from meeting the same fate as James Comey did under President Trump.

Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.), a member of the House Judiciary Committee, filed a bill that would limit the president’s at-will ability to remove an FBI director by only allowing dismissal for specific wrongdoing.

That would include violating the Justice Department’s code of conduct or ethics policy; being convicted of a crime; misusing the FBI’s resources; making false statements during official duties; or “for other good cause.”

“A free and independent federal law enforcement agency is critical to upholding our democracy, and all the values we cherish as Americans,” Johnson said in a statement. “Instead of the FBI director serving at the pleasure of the president, this legislation will mandate a for-cause standard to justify an FBI director’s dismissal.”

Current law limits FBI directors’ terms to 10 years as a way to help protect them from electoral politics. Yet the decadelong limit is also designed to avoid another entrenched FBI director like J. Edgar Hoover, who led the nation’s law enforcement agency for 48 years.

Comey was just under four years into his term before Trump abruptly fired him in May and offered contradicting explanations as his reason. Before Comey, the only other FBI director to be dismissed prematurely was William Sessions in 1993 by President Bill Clinton, amid ethics concerns.

The Trump administration originally cited Comey’s handling of the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server as the reason for the dismissal. But the president later said in an interview with NBC News that he was thinking of “this Russia thing” when he decided to fire Comey amid the agency’s probe of whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government during the 2016 election.

The Senate confirmed Comey’s successor, Christopher Wray, as the new FBI director earlier this month.

Another House Democrat previously introduced a similar bill to prevent another FBI director from being dismissed under circumstances like Comey’s.

Rep. Anthony Brown (D-Md.) filed a bill — the Fighting for Intelligent, Rational and Ethical Dismissal (FIRED) Act — in mid-May that would only allow the president to remove the FBI director for “inefficiency, neglect of duty or malfeasance in office.”



Should Black Folks Trust the FBI’s Russia Investigation, Given Its History of Targeting Our Communities?

Martin Luther King Jr. asks that then-President John F. Kennedy issue an executive order declaring all forms of racial segregation illegal at a press conference June 5, 1961, in New York. (Associated Press)
Why trust the FBI or any intelligence agency on Russia? They targeted civil rights activists for years.

We really don’t have proof of the Russians doing anything. Why trust these agencies now?

These are completely legitimate questions that I hear from black folks from time to time on social media and in person. I get it. Black people have a very conflicted relationship with law enforcement, be it local or federal policing. There are plenty of examples throughout the decades of these powerful entities harming black communities. Yet we depend on them to protect and serve us, despite their horrendous records of abuse.

The FBI has a particularly violent history (and if we are discussing the intelligence community in general, that extends to the present) of being aggressive against black liberation movements. COINTELPRO, for example, was one of the most disruptive anti-black law-enforcement programs the nation has ever waged against black civil rights activists.

Yet today the FBI stands as the single most important federal entity that will ultimately determine whether charges should be filed against people in Donald Trump’s presidential campaign for working with Russian entities to secure his victory on Election Day.

Jeffrey O.G. Ogbar, a historian at the University of Connecticut who researches the history of law enforcement targeting black people, told me he looks at the FBI the same way he does police agencies, school systems, the military or any other institution in the United States over the course of history. Ogbar brings up the history of the Atlanta Police Department as an example. One-quarter of the officers were once allegedly Ku Klux Klan members, and black officers could not arrest white people until 1960, Ogbar told me. By comparison, today’s Atlanta Police Department is majority African American and has black leadership.

“Institutions aren’t static,” said Ogbar, who believes the intelligence community’s assessment of Russian collusion. “I can’t see the Atlanta Police Department the same as it was in 1960, any more than I can think [the] FBI is the same as it was in 1960. It doesn’t mean it is incapable of committing some of the same offenses as it did before.”

For me, one of the toughest facts to respond to is that there is no publicly available smoking gun proof connecting the Democratic National Committee hack and other disinformation efforts to the Kremlin. The intelligence report released (pdf) in January is an assessment of what happened, not proof of an actual crime. It’s the job of the FBI and special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation to figure out if any crime happened from either the Russian or Trump sides.

C. Christian Grant, who spent 12 years as an FBI and Defense Intelligence Agency officer, told me it could take decades before Americans learn the real facts of the Russia investigation. For starters, if the intelligence community laid out every detail of proof it has of Russia collusion, it could hamper the current investigation and even lead to the loss of life.

“If you divulge that information, you run the risk of divulging sources and collecting methods, and you want to still continue to be able to collect [information],” Grant, who is African American and tracked Russian targets in the U.S. for four years, told me. “That information is probably held by a small number of individuals or possibly one individual. If that information gets out, Russia, as you know, has a way of dealing with spies and folks who they think are giving up information.”

A recent example of the FBI’s surveillance of black people dates back to the years after 9/11, when, Vice reported, the bureau identified Ayyub Abdul-Alim as a possible informant who could spy on members of the Mosque of the Islamic Brotherhood in Harlem, which was connected to the black nationalist movement during the 1960s. Somehow, the FBI drew a connection between black nationalism and al-Qaida, Michael German, a fellow with the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University and a former FBI special agent specializing in terrorism, told Vice earlier this year.

“The [FBI] files suggest that Muslims with family connections to black nationalist groups of the 1960s and 1970s were, after 9/11, viewed as suspicious, as part of the heightened focus on international terrorism and al-Qaida,” German said.

Abdul-Alim is serving a four- to six-year sentence for illegal-gun-possession charges. He believes that the charges are connected to his refusal to become an FBI informant.

Of course, the Russia investigation is a different can of worms. But the case of Abdul-Alim is another example of how our federal agencies have tried to draw conclusions that simply are not there. There was no proof of criminal activity at the Mosque of the Islamic Brotherhood, but the possibility of criminality was strongly considered after Sept. 11.

I asked Grant, the FBI and DIA officer, if he was ever asked to spy on black organizations. He said, “No.” (I get it. He would not admit to such actions anyway, but I had to ask.) But he did tell me that he was very aware of the history of modern-day

Black Lives Matter protesters reportedly cursed at officers outside a police union fundraiser for a white officer who’s been suspended after fatally shooting a black man in the back following a traffic stop.

Asa Khalif, one of the group’s coordinators, shouted at police through a bullhorn on Sunday that, “It’s a disgrace you’re having a party for a murderer.”

Union president John McNesby declined comment.

Police commissioner Richard Ross says Officer Ryan Pownall has been suspended and should be terminated later this month.

Ross says the 12-year police veteran used “poor judgment” when he fired on David Jones on June 8.

Roy Cohn Is Disbarred By New York Court
By Margot Hornblower and Washington Post June 24, 1986
Roy M. Cohn, the flamboyant lawyer who became famous as the communist-hunting counsel for Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy's committee in the 1950s, was disbarred today by the Appellate Division of the state Supreme Court in Manhattan.

The decision, part of a four-year battle between Cohn and the New York legal establishment, upheld a judicial disciplinary panel's charges of "dishonesty, fraud, deceit and misrepresentation."

It went beyond the panel's recommendation in finding that Cohn had entered the Florida hospital room of dying multimillionaire Lewis Rosenstiel, founder of the Schenley Distillers empire, while Rosenstiel, 84, was senile, semicomatose and drugged in December 1975. Rosenstiel died 6 1/2
Cohn held Rosenstiel's hand to sign a document naming Cohn a co-executor of Rosenstiel's will after falsely telling him that the document dealt with his divorce, the court found.

According to the 49-page decision, Cohn refused to repay a $100,000 loan from a client and lied about it in court; violated an escrow order, allowing dissipation of a corporation's assets in a securities-fraud case, and concealed pending disciplinary proceedings on an admission application to the District of Columbia Bar.

"For an attorney practicing for nearly 40 years in this state, such misconduct is inexcusable, notwithstanding an impressive array of character witnesses who testified in mitigation," the court found.

Cohn's attorneys had sought to have the disbarment proceedings halted on grounds that Cohn, 59, is dying. His doctor testified in October that Cohn had a "life-threatening disease" and a life expectancy of two to 12 months. Cohn has described the illness as liver cancer.

Cohn did not return calls today to his New York office or his home in Greenwich, Conn. One of his attorneys, Eugene Gelernter, said no decision had been made on whether to appeal the disbarment.

However, in interviews last year, Cohn called his accusers "left-wingers," "deadbeats" and "a bunch of yo-yos just out to smear me up." The disbarment action, he said, was "a broad ideological question . . . . What McCarthy was accused of practicing is actually being practiced against me."

Cohn's case attracted wide attention not only because of his notoriety -- he has stayed in the news as a lawyer for organized-crime figures and the jet set -- but also because of character witnesses who came to his defense during 27 days of hearings.

Among them were Rep. Mario Biaggi (D-N.Y.), ABC's Barbara Walters, developer Donald Trump, syndicated columnist William F. Buckley Jr. and New York Times columnist William Safire.

A prominent supporter of President Reagan and occasional guest at the White House, Cohn received a get-well telegram from Reagan while in the hospital a few months ago.

Cohn contended that his law firm, not he, handled the escrow account, that the $100,000 loan was an advance on legal fees and that the misconduct charges were not "formal" and therefore need not be reported to the D.C. bar.

In the Rosenstiel case, a Florida judge invalidated the codicil on grounds that Cohn "misrepresented" the document to him.

The New York disciplinary committee declined to add that case to its charges, but the court reinstated it after reviewing evidence, including Rosenstiel's illegible signature, and testimony of doctors and nurses present when Cohn made an unannounced late-night visit to the hospital 6 1/2 weeks before Rosenstiel died.

According to the court, Rosenstiel had suffered a stroke and was partially paralyzed and nearly blind. Cohn had been his attorney in a bitter divorce case but had never dealt with Rosenstiel's will.

However, Cohn flew to Florida while Rosenstiel was on the critical list and, without notifying Rosenstiel's regular attorney or family members, had him sign a document naming as trustees Cohn and a Rosenstiel relative with legal claims against the Rosenstiel estate.

The hospital attendant on duty that night testified that Rosenstiel was "almost comatose" and that Cohn had "tried to take Rosenstiel's hand for him to sign" the document.

When Rosenstiel was unable to move, Cohn returned the following morning, the court said. The nurse on duty testified that she heard Cohn describe the document as "tak ing care" of his divorce and telling Rosenstiel, "We will help you, Lew, to sign."




Republican Senator caught making up fake news about fake news doubles down



Judge: FBI can keep cost of iPhone hack secret


10/01/2017 11:49 AM EDT
A federal judge has ruled that the FBI does not have to make public how much it paid last year to unlock an iPhone used by one of the apparent perpetrators of a terrorist attack in California that killed 14 people.

Three news organizations — USA Today, The Associated Press and Vice Media — sued under the Freedom of Information Act to try to force the FBI to reveal the amount of the payment and the identity of the company that received it, but U.S. District Court Judge Tanya Chutkan ruled Saturday that information is exempt from mandatory disclosure under the landmark transparency statute.

The Justice Department waged a high-profile court battle to force Apple to help unlock the iPhone 5c, arguing that accessing the data on it was important to thoroughly investigate the 2015 shooting spree at a county health department office in San Bernardino, California. However, government lawyers abruptly abandoned the court fight in March 2016 because investigators managed to access the phone. It quickly emerged that the FBI had paid a private firm to unlock the device.

The FBI refused to identify the company did the work or how much it was paid, although then-FBI Director James Comey said at a conference last year that the cost was more than he was expected to make in salary during the remainder of his term as head of the FBI — approximately $1.4 million. (President Donald Trump fired Comey in May with more than six years to go in his 10-year term.)

As Seas Warm, Whales Face New Dangers
October. 2, 2017


MOUNT DESERT ROCK, Me. — From the top of the six-story lighthouse, water stretches beyond the horizon in every direction. A foghorn bleats twice at 22-second intervals, interrupting the endless chatter of herring gulls.

At least twice a day, beginning shortly after dawn, researchers climb steps and ladders and crawl through a modest glass doorway to scan the surrounding sea, looking for the distinctive spout of a whale.

This chunk of rock, about 25 nautical miles from Bar Harbor, is part of a global effort to track and learn more about one of the sea’s most majestic and endangered creatures. So far this year, the small number of sightings here have underscored the growing perils along the East Coast to both humpback whales and North Atlantic right whales.

This past summer, the numbers of humpback whales identified from the rock were abysmal — the team saw only eight instead of the usual dozens. Fifty-three humpbacks have died in the last 19 months, many after colliding with boats or fishing gear.

Shootings by officers, other Kansas cases cloaked in secrecy


Some Kansas police departments do not identify officers involved in fatal shootings, and body camera footage from the incidents may never become public. Records in unsolved criminal cases can remain closed indefinitely, even to victims’ families.

Grieving families can wait years to get answers about relatives who’ve been killed, and weak state transparency laws can allow law enforcement agencies to avoid public scrutiny, The Kansas City Star reports . And Kansas is less open than other states, including neighboring Missouri.

Kansas in 2014 became the last state in the nation to open affidavits that spell out the details behind arrests, though judges in some counties still seal them.

“I don’t trust a government that wants to let us know what we can and cannot know,” said attorney Cheryl Pilate, who recently helped win the release of a Kansas City, Kansas, man who was wrongly convicted of a 1994 double homicide. Pilate works in both Kansas and Missouri, and said obtaining investigative records is far easier in Missouri.

A 2016 state law designated officers’ body camera footage as a criminal investigation record, meaning that without a court order, authorities can refuse to make it public.

Topeka has refused to release body camera footage from the September shooting of a 30-year-old black man by two as-yet-unidentified officers and even told his family’s attorneys that for now only his minor children could see it. The family of a 47-year-old Leavenworth man shot to death in July by a police officer does not know the officer’s name and hasn’t seen body camera footage.

In response to open records requests on shootings involving officers since 1980, police departments in Kansas City, Kansas, Olathe, Overland Park, and Wichita declined to name the officers involved. Authorities cite officer safety and the need for thorough investigations.

“There’s a climate of anti-law enforcement sentiment in this country,” said Overland Park Police Chief Frank Donchez.

Hours after a fatal shooting in Minneapolis, the officer’s name, how long he’d been on the job and some details from his personnel file were released. That same month, the names of two Plant City, Florida, police officers were released days after a fatal shooting.

In Kansas, secrecy can surround more than shootings involving police officers. Harold and Alberta Leach filed a lawsuit to get access to records related to the 1988 disappearance of their son, who has never been found. The Kansas Bureau of Investigation says it is still investigating the case when new leads arise.


Police dog to regularly search public schools in Springfield

Springfield Public Schools officials have hired a canine handler to regularly search middle and high schools for drugs, bombs and guns.

The (Springfield) State Journal-Register reports that the school board has hired a former Springfield police officer who spent 20 years training police dogs and handlers. School officials say the searches will deter bringing contraband into schools buildings and possibly allow schools to avoid an evacuation if there’s a bomb threat. Springfield Public School District 186 has had six bomb threats so far

The Equatorial Pacific is Going Through its Variable Cool Phase, But 2017 is 94 Percent Likely to be the Second Hottest Year Ever Recorded
During late 2016, the Pacific Ocean started to cool off along its Equatorial region after experiencing one of the strongest warming events for that zone ever recorded. But despite this late cooling phase, the year ended up being the hottest ever recorded in the 137 year climate record — topping out at around 1.22 degrees Celsius above preindustrial temperatures. A longer term warming trend that has been directly driven by human burning of fossil fuels and related greenhouse gas emissions.

This year, the periodic Equatorial cooling known as La Nina is again taking place in the Pacific during fall following a very mild warming during winter and spring. But despite the appearance of a second such periodic cooling event, according to NASA 2017 is 94 percent likely to be the second warmest year ever recorded (see above).

October readings have come in and at 0.9 C above NASA baseline (1.12 C above 1880s averages), temperatures are disturbingly high. The month is now the second hottest ever seen by modern humans. With only October of 2015 coming in warmer at 1.08 C above the 20th Century baseline (1.3 above 1880s).

(Heat transfer into the polar zones is increased during La Nina periods. This effect is enhanced by polar amplification related to human caused climate change. This week, very high relative temperature departures are expected for the Arctic. Image source: Climate Reanalyzer.)

Over the past two years, La Ninas (cooling Pacific) appear to have been at least partly off-set by very strong warming in the Arctic and Antarctic. Atmospheric circulation tends to transport more heat into the polar zones as the Pacific cools. This is due to the fact that temperature differential between Equator and poles during La Nina is less and the lower temperature differential causes the upper level winds to slow and meander. Coupled with polar amplification due to human-caused climate change, the result can be some pretty extreme temperature departures. This week is no exception as Arctic temperatures by Thursday through Saturday are expected to be between 4 and 5 degrees Celsius above average for the entire region above the 66 North parallel.

Such record warm temperatures do not occur in isolation. They help to drive extreme weather events such as severe droughts, rainfall, and powerful hurricanes. They are also accelerating sea level rise by melting glaciers even as both warming temperatures and related increasing ocean acidification contribute to dead zones, coral reef deaths and declining ocean health. Global temperature rise coupled with rising CO2 is therefore producing a major systemic crisis the world over.


FBI COINTELPROCOINTELPRO (an acronym for Counter Intelligence Program) was a series of covert, and often illegal, projects conducted by the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) aimed at spying on, infiltrating, discrediting, disrupting and destroying domestic organizations considered "subversive". According to the FBI, "intensified attention under this program should be afforded to the activities of such groups as the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, Revolutionary Action Movement, the Deacons for Defense and Justice, Congress of Racial Equality, and the Nation of Islam."
On March 8, 1971, a group of anonymous activists broke into the small, two-man office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Media, Pa., and stole more than 1,000 FBI documents that revealed years of systematic wiretapping, infiltration and media manipulation designed to suppress dissent. The Citizens' Commission to Investigate the FBI, as the group called itself, forced its way in at night with a crowbar while much of the country was watching the Muhammad Ali-Joe Frazier fight. When agents arrived for work the next morning, they found the file cabinets virtually emptied.
Within a few weeks, the documents began to show up -- mailed anonymously in manila envelopes with no return address -- in the newsrooms of major American newspapers.

COINTELPRO tactics included discrediting targets through psychological warfare, planting false reports in the media, smearing through forged letters, harassment, wrongful imprisonment, extralegal violence and assassination. Covert operations under COINTELPRO took place between 1956 and 1971, however the FBI has used covert operations against domestic political groups since its inception.

I was Ubering down Pennsylvania Avenue the other day when I passed my favorite Washington location that demands a wrecking ball. It’s not a statue to some forgotten slaveholder nor a memorial to some Jim Crow booster — Woodrow Wilson, for instance — but a building bearing the name of a racist, anti-communist zealot who, in the name of God and the American flag, set out to destroy Martin Luther King Jr. I am talking about J. Edgar Hoover and the lump of cement named for him.

The J. Edgar Hoover FBI Building, headquarters of the FBI.



A review of “Hoover’s FBI and the Fourth Estate: The Campaign to Control the Press and the Bureau’s Image” by Matthew Cecil, University Press of Kansas, 355 pages, $34.95

Matthew Cecil, a communications professor at Wichita State University, has resolved a conundrum that’s bedeviled me since 1970, when I was a fledgling investigative reporter.

I had just completed my first interaction with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the supposedly crackerjack national law enforcement agency. But the crackerjack part escaped me. My initial experience suggested an agency that produced inaccurate information inefficiently, failed to respect the constitutional liberties of U.S. citizens, and often resorted to intimidation and lies to get their way. Yet many of my journalistic “betters” told me I was misguided.

Smart people who think they are well informed about a subject—say, the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s role as the nation’s elite law enforcement agency—usually “know” what they think they know based on exposure to mass media—television, radio, newspapers, magazines, books. But when mass media have been corrupted, the reliability of the “knowledge” becomes suspect. That’s the case with the FBI.

As “Hoover’s FBI and the Fourth Estate: The Campaign to Control the Press and the Bureau’s Image” shows, the performance of supposedly first-rate FBI agents has been dismal time and again when the citizens of the United States needed them most, including perhaps most notably the run-up to the events of September 11, 2001.

1Readers of WhoWhatWhy will be familiar with our frequent reports of problems with FBI operations (see for example this, this and this). And may be asking themselves: why don’t I see this in the media? The answer is in this book.

What the FBI excelled at, especially under its long-time chief J. Edgar Hoover, was a non-stop public relations campaign that portrayed the agency as a heroic band of G-men who skillfully tracked and felled dangerous criminals.

“Tales of the FBI’s infallible laboratory and army of honest and professional agents became part of popular culture,” Cecil writes. Thanks to mass media, “the FBI was widely considered to be an indispensable government agency.”

In fact, in all too many cases, dangerous criminals were eluding capture, while that “infallible” forensic laboratory wrongly analyzed evidence again and again, leading to the pursuit and convictions of innocent individuals.

J. Edgar’s 48-Year Reign

The publicity juggernaut to gild the FBI’s image began during the directorship of J. Edgar Hoover. He died in 1972, after 48 years at the helm. But the campaign he initiated was so pervasive, and the propaganda he peddled so appealing, that the image of incorruptible, invincible agent-heroes lives on in perpetuity.

Only gradually, since Hoover’s death, has the true story of the FBI begun to emerge. As Cecil explains, the course of events and countless investigations have exposed “a lawless and uncontrolled Bureau that expended enormous amounts of time and resources policing political thought rather than investigating violations of federal law… Hoover had ultimately transformed the Bureau into an American secret police force, even as he convinced the public and many in the news media that he was a trustworthy defender of civil liberties.”

Cecil says he wanted his book to reveal “how, in a nation so proud of its watchdog press, a high-profile federal agency managed to hide the reality of its activities for so long. The answer is as complex as the FBI’s decades-long deception, but it surely includes failings entrenched in the ideology of journalism and in readers’ and viewers’ often uncritical acceptance of news as truth.”

The reference to the “watchdog press” is central here. Yes, starting in the first decade of the twentieth century, what today we call “investigative reporting” began to take root in the U.S. media. But no more than a handful of media organizations ever practiced serious investigative journalism. The vast majority of journalists were too untrained or lazy or gullible or corrupt to seek the truth behind the FBI’s public-relations façade.

Unfortunately, as Cecil points out, many, probably most, consumers of news cannot or will not distinguish the excellent journalists from the untrained, lazy, gullible and corrupt ones and therefore have no idea whom to believe about the FBI. Through wise choice of media outlets and via pure luck, some consumers of mass media inevitably learned the ugly truth about the FBI—while most never did.

In the book’s Introduction, Cecil renders the abridged history of the FBI public relations campaign:

“After a few tentative steps into the realm of publicity during the late 1920s, the Bureau became a key element of FDR’s New Deal war on crime in the mid-1930s. Two journalists, independent author Courtney Ryley Cooper and Neil (Rex) Collier, collaborated with Hoover and his top lieutenants to create a template for FBI news stories emphasizing responsibility and science and featuring Hoover as America’s always careful and reliable top law enforcement officer. With the creation of the public relations-oriented Crime Records Section in 1935 and the establishment of clear lines of public communication authority, Hoover had both a public relations message and a management team to amplify and enforce it.”

During the mid-1930s, Collier, a Washington Star reporter, oversaw a comic strip called “War on Crime” that ran for two years in 80 newspapers across the United States.

Cecil summarizes the first six weeks of the strip: “Week one of ‘War on Crime’ focused on Hoover, who, Collier wrote in the comic strip’s text, ‘had the vision of a man twice his age.’ Hoover had cleaned up the Bureau, and ‘now he had men of unassailable integrity’ in the field.”

After touting the agents’ grueling training regimen and the cutting-edge science of the FBI’s crime-fighting laboratory, the strip focused on the Agency’s success in capturing criminals: “In the morgue of the Fingerprint Division are the cancelled records of criminals removed from circulation such as Dillinger, Floyd, and Nelson.”

Cooper had worked as a publicist for a circus before turning to newspaper feature writing. He met Hoover in 1933, while rewriting a profile of the FBI chief for American Magazine. After completing the rewrite, Cooper suggested a more permanent arrangement to Hoover. Soon, articles ghost-written by Cooper about the FBI began appearing in magazines and newspapers under Hoover’s byline. Other pieces appeared under Cooper’s name after FBI staff had carefully vetted them. Among the influential periodicals that published such public relations material as “news” were the respectable magazines Cosmopolitan and Saturday Evening Post.

Cecil notes:

“At a time when Americans were desperate for government to do something right, the FBI’s pursuit and elimination of John Dillinger and the other ‘Robin Hood’ outlaws of the Midwest provided a compelling hook on which to hang the Bureau’s reputation. Hoover built on that narrative, erecting an FBI built not only on real law enforcement innovation but also on a manufactured public relations foundation that hid mistakes and excesses from public view for nearly 40 years.”

Accused bank robber Bennie Dickson, for example, died on a St. Louis street during 1939 after he supposedly threatened to unload his weapon in the direction of four FBI agents. Cecil, relying in part on previously undisclosed FBI reports, shows that Dickson was actually trying to flee the scene when a trigger-happy agent shot him in the back.

The evidence appears overwhelming that in the aftermath of Dickson’s death, FBI agents coordinated their accounts, offered perjured testimony and threatened a key witness into silence after she had told the truth.

Cecil says that holes first began to appear in the FBI’s holier-than-thou image around 1940. Media accounts of agents falsifying testimony, conducting illegal wiretaps and raiding homes of Americans involved in the Spanish Civil War brought the agency unwanted attention.

Hoover found ways to fight back. His staff maintained lists of hundreds of journalists, and categorized each as friend or foe. Foes were denied access to FBI information, while friends, like famed columnist Walter Winchell, got “insider” tips they could use, often unattributed, to spin coverage of specific investigations and to burnish the FBI’s overall reputation.

While most major media outlets willingly joined the pro-FBI chorus, low-circulation intellectual magazines like The Nation and The New Republic probed deeper.

Fred Cook’s critical reporting about the FBI filled the entire 58 pages of The Nation magazine for October 18, 1958. Cook questioned the American public’s “worship” of an agency that was “part heroic fact” to be sure, but also “part heroic myth.” Cook would expand the magazine tour de force into a 1964 book, “The FBI Nobody Knows.”

While trying without success to refute Cook’s facts, Hoover and his supporters accused him, and other critics, of being un-American—a charge that bore considerable weight during the Communist-hunting hysteria of the 1950s.


But even Fred Cook’s hard-hitting expose could not come close to neutralizing the Bureau-friendly “journalism” of Don Whitehead.

Whitehead had established his credentials as a newspaper reporter and war correspondent by the time he completed an “authorized” history of the FBI in 1956. “The FBI Story: A Report to the People” became a big seller. Whitehead had no qualms about FBI censors vetting his manuscript. In discussing the agency’s propensity for tapping telephones and bugging private homes and offices, Whitehead compared these actions to a potential employer examining “every possible source for information as to the honesty and reliability of a prospective employee.”

As Cecil sees it, “Whitehead sold out his own journalistic credibility to the heroic history of the FBI. Hoover counted on the public’s logical conclusion that a famed, objective journalist had reviewed the evidence and verified the Bureau’s history as it had always been told.”

1In 1959, Whitehead’s book “became the basis for a popular motion picture, also titled ‘The FBI Story,’ starring Jimmy Stewart. And when Hoover moved the FBI story into television in 1965, carefully selected scriptwriters were provided copies of Whitehead’s book.”

Under press liaison Louis B. Nichols, FBI staff “edited and rewrote news, feature, and magazine stories produced by cooperative reporters…[plus] rewrote scripts for radio, television, and film.”

In 1965, the hour-long television drama “The F.B.I.” started airing on the ABC network, a co-production of Warner Brothers and Quinn Martin. The dramatization of FBI cases reached millions of viewers each week, 241 episodes over a nine-year period, not including re-runs and syndication showings. An FBI agent worked on the set. FBI employees reviewed and rewrote the scripts line by line. The agency had the right to approve production crew members, performers and advertisers.

The FBI censors objected to scenes in which agents killed criminals, because that seemed to indicate a lack of responsibility. “In addition to limiting violence…FBI reviewers rejected scripts that showed agents drinking alcohol, using diet pills to make their weight requirements, exercising poor judgment, losing their composure, and…demonstrating excessive compassion for criminals.” The censors insisted any reference to wiretapping be omitted.

I watched episodes of the television drama while in my final year of high school and during my freshman year of college, and swallowed whole the idealized image of the FBI. But in the years since 1970 when I began my career as a professional journalist, I have cast a skeptical eye on all kinds of institutional glorification. I now know that much of the FBI story I bought qualified as… bullshit.

In this book, Cecil spells out how Americans were sold an image of an FBI beyond reproach. It’s not only a solid, fascinating work of history, it’s a cautionary tale against current and future attempts to mold public opinion about government actions in the face of inconvenient facts.


How to tell someone's lying to you by watching their face

Mark Bouton, an FBI agent for 30 years and author of "How to Spot Lies Like the FBI," tells Business Insider that he used certain tells to help identify Timothy McVeigh as the Oklahoma City bomber.


Nichols says bombing was FBI op
Detailed confession filed in S.L. about Oklahoma City plot

The only surviving convicted criminal in the April 19, 1995, bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City is saying his co-conspirator, Timothy McVeigh, told him he was taking orders from a top FBI official in orchestrating the bombing.

A declaration from Terry Lynn Nichols, filed in U.S. District Court in Salt Lake City, has proven to be one of the most detailed confessions by Nichols to date about his involvement in the bombing as well as the involvement of others. However, one congressman who has investigated the bombings remains skeptical of Nichols' claims.

The declaration was filed as part of Salt Lake City attorney Jesse Trentadue's pending wrongful death suit against the government for the death of his brother in a federal corrections facility in Oklahoma City. Trentadue claims his brother was killed during an interrogation by FBI agents when agents mistook his brother for a suspect in the Oklahoma City bombing investigation.

The most shocking allegation in the 19-page signed declaration is Nichols' assertion that the whole bombing plot was an FBI operation and that McVeigh let slip during a bout of anger that he was taking instruction from former FBI official Larry Potts.

The heat that has characterized this L.A. winter is forecast to continue next week, with temperatures in the 70s and 80s for the next few days.

The high temperature could reach 81 degrees on Sunday in downtown Los Angeles, cooling to 75 onMonday and Tuesday before potentially spiking up into the low 80s again Wednesday and Thursday, said National Weather Service weather specialist Stuart Seto.

That's above the average — 68 degrees — for this time of year downtown, Seto said. Temperatures throughout the region on Saturday were expected to hover around the low 80s.

And, of course, Los Angeles has barely seen any rain.

Downtown Los Angeles has recorded 1.89 inches of rain since Oct. 1, compared with the average 7.38 inches, Seto said. Last year, the area had seen 14.33 inches of rain by Feb. 2.

Boston gangster James 'Whitey' Bulger

New book details operation to smuggle weapons from US, writes Jim Cusack


February 24 2013 4:00 AM


A new book on the notorious Boston gangster, James 'Whitey' Bulger, details his meetings with the Provisional IRA in setting up the arms smuggling deal which led to the arrest of Sinn Fein TD Martin Ferris in 1984.

The book also says that Bulger's involvement with the IRA "took off" after he began working as an FBI informer and quotes one of Bulger's associates saying that C4 plastic explosive supplied to the IRA came from a corrupt FBI agent who was supposed to be one of the Irish-American gangster's handlers.


The book is written by Boston Globe journalists Shelley Murphy and Kevin Cullen. Cullen, former crime correspondent for the newspaper, reported on Bulger and his gang for decades and had his life threatened by both Bulger and the corrupt FBI agent, John Connolly, now serving 40 years for involvement in three of the reputed 19 murders carried out by Bulger and his gang. Bulger, who was arrested in California in June 2011, faces trial in June on 19 murder and other charges.

Who does the CIA get to talk about Black History?

For one the Agency’s earliest programs, they ran through a few options first

Written by Beryl Lipton

Edited by JPat Brown

Here’s an understatement: the African-American community and the United States government’s intelligence apparatus have had a rather complicated and controversial relationship. A dive into the Central Intelligence Agency’s CREST archives reveals a bit of this curious crossover during the CIA’s search for a speaker at the Agency’s 1977 Black History Month celebration, one of its first.


The occasion, which took place on February 14th, ultimately featured C. DeLores Tucker, then-Secretary of State for the State of Pennsylvania and, later, a vocal opponent of gangsta rap. Based on the communications found in the archive, the talk went quite well …




and involved a job offer of indeterminate seriousness that the Civil Rights activist declined.




The theme of the Agency’s Black History program that year was the “historical and contemporary achievements of black American women,” and, according to other materials in the file, it appears that multiple others turned down the Agency offers to speak, including Barbara Jordan, a House Representative from Texas …




and Shirley Chisholm, a Congresswoman from New York.

Protesters in Portland take a knee to take back a message

Faith-based demonstrators at the jetport ask for the national conversation to return to racial injustice



On the eve of the Super Bowl, nearly 100 silent protesters “took a knee” at the Portland International Jetport to call attention to racial injustice and inequality.


Beginning at 4:30 p.m. Saturday, the protesters – including many clergy members – held signs and knelt on yoga mats, pillows and the hard floor to take back a message they say has been “hijacked” by the debate over the patriotism of NFL players who kneel during the national anthem.


The protesters, some wearing Patriots gear, lined either side of the jetport between the escalators/stairs and baggage claim, leaving plenty of room for disembarking travelers to walk a kind of prayer gantlet in between them. Signs invited the travelers to join them: “Take a Knee in Prayer,” one read. “Will you take a moment to kneel with us in support of justice & kindness for people of color?”


Holding the sign were Andy and Dorothy Grannell of Portland, who are “veterans of 50 years as a transracial family.”

NWC Joins SCOTUS Amicus Brief with FBI Whistleblowers

By Aaron Jordan on March 9, 2018


Earlier today, the National Whistleblower Center (NWC) joined a friend-of-the-court brieffiled with the Supreme Court in support of FBI whistleblower John Parkinson’s petition for certiorari, seeking review of the Federal Circuit’s decision denying veterans’ preference-eligible FBI employees the right to raise whistleblowing as an affirmative defense in an appeal to the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB).

The amicus brief, filed on behalf FBI whistleblowers Michael German, Robert Kobus, Jane Turner, and Frederic Whitehurst, as well as the NWC and the Project on Government Oversight, details why the Department of Justice’s procedures for FBI whistleblowers are not an adequate substitute for a veterans’ preference-eligible FBI employee raising a whistleblower claim in an MSPB case.


Lt. Col. Parkinson was dismissed from the FBI and sought to raise whistleblower reprisal as an affirmative defense at his MSPB hearing. He was denied the opportunity by the MSPB, won an appeal of that denial before a Federal Circuit panel, but then lost on rehearing en banc. The Federal Circuit overturned, in part, a panel decision and determined that FBI whistleblowers may not raise whistleblower reprisal as an affirmative defense before the MSPB.

The amicus brief chronicles the long-winded paths to justice of four former FBI whistleblowers, including former FBI crime lab expert Dr. Frederic Whitehurst, who bravely blew the whistle on flawed forensic science at the FBI lab; former FBI agent Michael German, who reported the FBI’s illegal recording of conversations in violation of Title III wiretap regulations during a counterterrorism investigation; former FBI agent Jane Turner, who reported to the DOJ Inspector General that colleagues had stolen items from Ground Zero after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks; and retired FBI employee Robert Kobus, who worked at the FBI’s New York Field Office for 35 years and made a protected disclosure regarding some of his colleagues’ abuses of the FBI’s leave policy. Both Whitehurst and Turner hold leadership positions at the NWC.

Unfortunately, this is not the first time the Federal Circuit has issued a decision denying whistleblowers the rights intended by Congress. The Supreme Court should agree to hear this important case in order to correct the Federal Circuit’s dubious decision and to ensure that veterans who work at our foremost law enforcement agencies are fully protected when they blow the whistle.

FBI Racially Profiling "Black Identity Extremists"

At the same time that white supremacists were preparing for the "Unite the Right" demonstration in Charlottesville, which resulted in the murder of Heather Heyer in August 2017, the FBI's counterterrorism division produced an intelligence assessment warning of a very different—though actually non-existent threat: "Black Identity Extremists." The report appeared to be the first time the term had been used to identify a movement, according to Foreign Policy magazine, which broke the story.

"But former government officials and legal experts said no such movement exists, and some expressed concern that the term is part of a politically motivated effort to find an equivalent threat to white supremacists," Foreign Policy reported.

"The use of terms like 'black identity extremists' is part of a long-standing FBI attempt to define a movement where none exists," said former FBI agent Mike German, who now works for the Brennan Center for Justice. "Basically, it's black people who scare them."

"It's classic Hoover-style labeling with a little bit of maliciousness and euphemism wrapped up together," said William Maxwell, a Washington University professor working on a book about FBI monitoring of black writers. "The language—black identity extremist—strikes me as weird and really a continuation of the worst of Hoover's past."

"There is a long tradition of the FBI targeting black activists and this is not surprising," Black Lives Matter activist DeRay McKesson told Foreign Policy.

A former homeland security official told them that carelessly connecting unrelated groups will make it harder for law enforcement to identify real threats. It's so convoluted that it's compromising officer safety, the former official said.

"The corporate media [has] covered the FBI report on 'black identity extremists' in narrow or misleading ways," Project Censored noted, citing examples from The New York Times, Fox News and NBC News. "Coverage like this both draws focus away from the active white supremacist movement and feeds the hate and fear on which such a movement thrives."

Cooking with FOIA: The CIA’s TOP SECRET anti-poop diet

Declassified manuals in the Agency archives reveal the “high protein, low residue” diet U-2 pilots used to keep from soiling their suits

Written by JPat Brown

Edited by Beryl Lipton

Practically synonymous with high-altitude espionage, the Lockheed U-2 spy plane played an almost legendary role in the Central Intelligence Agency’s activities during the Cold War, so much so that a 1/6th scale model of the plane currently hangs in the Agency atrium in Langley, Virginia. The aircraft was notoriously difficult to pilot and physically demanding (flights of over ten hours at over 70,000 feet were not uncommon), and a formerly TOP SECRET manual uncovered in the Agency archives outlines a strict regimen to keep pilots fit and healthy.
