Courts Pretty Much OK With FBI's Occasional Stints As Child Porn Distributors
from the the-fine-art-of-honeypottery dept

Law enforcement agencies commit criminal acts while conducting criminal investigations. It happens all the time. With the blessing of their handlers, confidential informants routinely engage in criminal activity. Investigators act as co-conspirators in the planning of terrorist attacks and the robbing of imaginary "stash houses."

But many people are taking issue with the FBI's decision to use seized servers loaded with child pornography as honeypots rather than immediately shut them down. For some, this is the one unforgivable criminal act -- the possession and distribution of child porn.

This is something the FBI has done twice (that we know of). The first time was back in 2012, when it seized a server in Bellevue, Nebraska linked to a website called "PedoBook." It ran the site for three weeks while it deployed a Network Investigative Tool to find out more info about its users.

It did it again in 2015. Joseph Cox of Motherboard was the first to cover it, detailing the FBI's two-week stint as the new hosts of "Playpen," another child porn site accessible only to users utilizing the Tor browser. Again

Buffalo FBI Agent Busted
Dec 10, 2012

BUFFALO, NY - A Special Agent working in the Buffalo office
of the FBI is due in Eden Town Court later this month, after
being arrested by New York State Police last Friday night,
charged with exposing himself to a fellow motorist on the
New York State Thruway.

State Police Lt. David Denz confirmed for WGRZ-TV that John
A. Yervelli Jr., 48, of Lakeview, was charged with Public
Lewdness, a class B misdemeanor, punishable by up to 90 days
in jail.

According to Denz, a truck driver from central New York was
traveling in the right lane while east bound on the Thruway
near mile marker 442, between Exits 57 and 57A, when he
noticed a grey minivan pull alongside him in the passing

The trucker told police that when he looked down, he noticed
the driver of the other vehicle (who had turned his dome
light on) was not wearing pants.

"At that point the complainant stated that the driver of the
minivan was exposing himself and making lewd gestures," Denz
told 2 On Your Side.

Denz says the trucker called police, who then intercepted
the minivan at the Hamburg toll plaza, where the trucker
also went to identify Yervelli. Denz said it appeared
Yervelli was wearing pants when he was pulled over.

"He denied exposing himself," Denz told Channel 2, but added
that "inconsistencies" in the account given by Agent
Yervelli lead State Police to file charges.

A source says Yervelli insisted to the trooper who pulled
him over that he was attempting to relieve himself into a
bottle while he was driving. However, the location where he
said that occurred was within a few miles (or minutes) of
the exit he was headed to, and even closer to a Thruway rest

"I don't want to give you too many specifics as far as what
he stated, but he made statements that would lead you to
believe that the truck driver's story was credible," Denz

Former Scout leader, FBI agent indicted on child sex
News-Times, The (Danbury, CT)
Saturday, February 4, 2006

NEW HAVEN (AP) - A retired FBI agent was indicted Friday on
federal child sex charges dating back more than a decade
when he was a Boy Scout leader.
William Hutton, 63, of Killingworth, was arrested Friday.
The federal grand jury indictment accuses Hutton of enticing
a member of his Scout troop to Maine for the purpose of
sexual activity in 1994 and 1995.

"It's obviously devastating. He was an FBI agent in this
district and was reputed in this district," defense attorney
Hugh Keefe said.

"The people who worked with him in the U.S. attorney's
office and FBI respected him."

Keefe said the investigation has been going on for years. He
would not discuss the details of the case or how the
allegations surfaced.

Investigators asked anyone who knows anything about the case
to call the FBI. U.S. Attorney Kevin O'Connor said that's
standard practice whenever there might be more victims.

"In any case that's a concern," O'Connor said. "Whether
that's the situation here I can't say."

If convicted on all four charges, Hutton faces up to 30
years in prison and up to $250,000 in fines.

Hutton was released on a $200,00 bond. He may not own any
firearms or have any unsupervised contact with children. He
was also ordered to stay away from playgrounds, schools,
arcades or anywhere children congregate.

Local attorney arrested
On child indecency accusations

Updated: Wednesday, 22 Apr 2009, 1:33 PM CDT
Published : Monday, 20 Apr 2009,
MOBILE, Ala. - Mobile Police arrested 52-year-old Phillip
Kent Baxley on child indecency charges. Baxley is a local
attorney in Mobile, but he's also a former coach and acting
president for the Mobile Soccer Club.

"I'm surprised to hear it," said Mobile Soccer Club
Director, Mohammed Elzare. "He's a former FBI agent and
attorney. So we're definitely saddened to hear this."

Baxley was arrested at his Dauphin Street office on a
fugitive felony warrant out of Harris County, Texas.

Texas police officers say Baxley was involved in an incident
with a nine-year-old girl in 2004.
Investigators say it happened at a family member's house in
a Houston suburb, but the girl waited some time before
saying anything.

"When the victim, the nine-year-old made the outcry she was
interviewed in another county and all of the information was
forwarded to us and the investigation went from there," said
Lt. Wade Conner with the Deer Park, Texas Police

Mobile Soccer Club Board Members say they were blind-sided
by the news on Monday. For now, the board likely plans to
distance itself from Baxley.

"Stopping ties until this situation is resolved and
hopefully it comes out to a good outcome," said Elzare.

But Texas investigators are confident the charges will
stick, despite Baxley's background. "If they're a pedophile
then we deal with them all the same," said Wade. "It doesn't
matter what they do for a living."

Baxley is locked up in the Mobile County Jail. That's where
he'll stay until he's extradited to Texas.

Ex-FBI man gets 7 years for child sex
Former FBI analyst sentenced in child sex case

A 17-year veteran of the FBI will serve seven years in
prison for having sexual relations with a young girl in
Spotsylvania County, a judge ruled yesterday.

Anthony John Lesko, 44, entered an Alford plea yesterday in
Spotsylvania Circuit Court to nine counts of felony indecent
liberties upon a child.

Lesko, who later moved to Jacksonville, Fla., worked as an
intelligence analyst at the FBI for 17 years, according to
his attorney, James A. Carter II. He is a major in the U.S.
Army Reserves and has received numerous military awards.

An Alford plea means Lesko doesn't admit guilt but believes
there is enough evidence for a conviction. Under the terms
of the plea, he was sentenced to seven years in prison with
another 15 years suspended.

Lesko engaged in a sex act with a girl, 9 and 10 at the
time, at least nine times in 2003-2004, according to
evidence put forth by Spotsylvania Commonwealth's Attorney
William Neely.

The girl told a member of the Spotsylvania Department of
Social Services about the activity in February 2004,
according to the evidence. Lesko at first denied the
allegations, but later spoke with a U.S. Navy counselor
about them.

Lesko told the counselor that he was the victim of the
sexual assault; he said the girl initiated the contact,
according to the plea. Lesko entered the plea partly to
spare the girl the pain of a trial, his attorney said.

Donald Sachtleben was arrested in May 2012, following an

Authorities said they were able to trace online activity

According to court documents, Sachtleben hid behind the
email ‘pedodave69@yahoo.com
and openly traded child porn. In one email he attached nine
images of child pornography and child erotica and wrote:

“Saw your profile… Hope you like these and can send me
some of (y)ours. I have even better ones if you like.”

Police obtained a search warrant on May 3. During an initial
forensic examination of Sachtleben’s laptop computer,
approximately 30 images and video files containing child

FBI agent convicted of daughters' abuse
July 11, 1993|By Traci A. Johnson | Traci A. Johnson,Staff

An FBI agent who lives in Carroll County has been convicted
of sexually abusing his daughters over a 14-year period.

The agent, as part of an agreement with prosecutors, pleaded
guilty Friday before Circuit Judge Francis M. Arnold to two
counts of second-degree sexual offense and two counts of
child abuse.

The agent's name is being withheld to protect the privacy of
the victims.

In exchange for the agent's plea, the state dropped 18 other
counts against him, ordered a presentence investigation and
agreed to let him remain free on $125,000 bond pending
sentencing Sept. 10.

The agent was suspended from the FBI's Baltimore field
office when he was arrested in December.

The original indictment also charged the man with fondling
his oldest daughter's friend several years ago when the girl
had slept over at the agent's home.

An investigation began after one of the man's daughters told
a county child-abuse investigator of at least five incidents
of molestation from 1980 to 1987, court documents said.

The victims said their father performed sexual acts ranging
from fondling to intercourse beginning when each was
preschool age. The abuse lasted until the girls were in
their early teens, said Assistant State's Attorney Kathi
Hill in a statement of facts presented in court.

In February, defense attorney John E. Harris Sr. tried
unsuccessfully to have the case moved out of Carroll on the
grounds that pretrial publicity had damaged the defendant's
chance for a fair trial.

Ms. Hill said the state will recommend a sentence of 35
years in state prison, with 15 years suspended.

Although Ms. Hill said she once argued that the agent should
be incarcerated until his trial, she said Friday she was not
worried about whether he will return for his sentencing.

"Even if he'd take a walk, when he eventually comes back he
wouldn't have to be tried again. He'd just be sentenced,"
Ms. Hill said. "There's not so much fear on our part,
because we don't have to prove the case again."

The state will ask the court, as part of the agent's
sentence, to impose five years of supervised probation and
order him to have no contact with females under 18 and to
undergo psychological therapy.

Judge Arnold also accepted a plea agreement Friday in which
a Mount Airy hairdresser admitted sexually abusing a
teen-age boy he befriended in 1990.

David Curtis Flynn of Grimes Court in Mount Airy was
immediately sentenced to four years in prison for a
second-degree sexual offense.

From January 1991 to November 1992, Flynn had a sexual
relationship with the boy, whose family knew and trusted the
man, according to a statement of facts that Ms. Hill read in

The victim told authorities that Flynn talked to him before
the incidents, saying he had been abused as a child, Ms.
Hill said.

"I am deeply sorry . . . in my soul," Flynn said. "None of
my attentions were meant as wrongdoing. I showed [the
victim] the kind of love and affection I was brought up
with. I'm deeply sorry for upsetting his childhood."

Judge Arnold sentenced Flynn to 10 years in state prison,
then suspended six years of the term.

The judge also ordered five years of supervised probation
for the defendant after the prison term and ordered him to
participate in all recommended treatment programs.

Mystery Over FBI Agent's Firing
Government shrouds details of why top child porn prober got

Mystery Over FBI Agent's Firing

AUGUST 20--The lead FBI investigator on several of the
government's highest profile child porn prosecutions has
recently been fired in connection with her work on those
cases, though details of why the agent was terminated have
been sealed by a federal judge.

The canning of Monique Winkis, 40, was just disclosed by
federal prosecutors to a Tennessee defense lawyer who
represents Timothy Richards, who was convicted in a case in
which Winkis was the lead FBI agent. In an August 8 U.S.
District Court filing, defense lawyer Kimberly Hodde stated
that prosecutors had informed her that Winkis was canned due
to her 'conduct in the investigation of cases related to
Defendant Richards' prosecution.'

Specific details of Winkis's firing are contained in a court
filing made by Department of Justice officials, a submission
that was ordered sealed last week by Judge Aleta Trauger. In
her court filing, Hodde argues that Richards, pictured at
left, is entitled to details about the Winkis firing since
the ex-prober was the FBI case agent assigned to his

The Winkis firing was apparently first disclosed by
government lawyers during a late-June status conference, at
which Trauger set dates for court pleadings 're: FBI
Wincus,' according to a court filing. Winkis did not respond
to a detailed message left with her mother, and the federal
prosecutor handling the Richards case did not return a
message left at her office. An FBI spokesperson declined
comment, noting that the agency is prohibited from
discussing personnel matters.

According to court records, Winkis worked for the FBI for
about 13 years, most recently from the bureau's Washington,
D.C. headquarters where she was a supervisor in the Innocent
Images Unit. In that capacity, Winkis developed cases based
on information provided by Justin Berry, who began operating
an X-rated Webcam business while still a teenager. Berry's
cooperation was, in large part, arranged in late-2005 by
Kurt Eichenwald, then a New York Times reporter
investigating online child porn businesses.

According to a December 2005 Eichenwald story, the Times
'persuaded Justin to abandon his business and, to protect
other children at risk, assisted him in contacting the
Justice Department.' That Times report also quoted Winkis
commenting on the breadth of potential targets identified as
a result of Berry's cooperation and how 'hundreds of other
kids that we are not aware of yet' could be saved from
sexual abuse and exploitation.

GREG RISLING | September 24, 2012
LOS ANGELES — An undercover FBI agent has been accused in
court documents of spending U.S. taxpayer dollars on
prostitutes in the Philippines for himself and others during
an international weapons trafficking probe last year.

Deputy Federal Public Defender John Littrell filed a motion
last week asking a judge to toss an indictment against his
client, Sergio Santiago Syjuco, for "outrageous government
misconduct." Syjuco, 25, and two other Philippine nationals
have been charged with conspiracy and face up to 20 years in

The agent, who wasn't identified in court documents, paid up
to $2,400 each time he went to brothels with Syjuco and
others to reward them for their work to secure weapons to
ship to the U.S. without a license, court documents show.

"I have never seen anything like this during my career as a
criminal defense lawyer," Littrell told The Associated Press
on Monday. "I hope that the Department of Justice takes
these allegations seriously, does a complete investigation,
and ensures that whoever authorized this outrageous
misconduct is held accountable."

FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller declined comment Monday, but
federal prosecutors acknowledged in court documents that the
agent sought nearly $15,000 in reimbursements for
"entertainment" and other expenses related to the
investigation. The prosecutors said they don't have any
receipts from the clubs, but two of them listed in the
filing, "Air Force One" and "Area 51," are suspected

No charges have been filed against the agent.

Syjuco, Cesar Ubaldo and Arjyl Revereza, a Philippines
customs official, were charged earlier this year with
violating arms import laws by selling a grenade launcher, a
mortar launcher and other weapons to the undercover agent
who said he was interested in buying high-powered weapons
that could be used by drug cartels in the U.S. and Mexico.

The case was part of a federal investigation of Asian
organized crime groups involved in the illicit trafficking
of firearms.

The weapons were eventually loaded onto a ship that arrived
at the Port of Long Beach in June 2011 and the items were
seized by authorities.

Littrell argues that the agent – and none of the three
defendants – arranged importing the weapons to the U.S. He
also questioned why the weapons were first shipped from the
Philippines to China, where it wasn't known whether
officials there checked the container, before arriving in
the U.S.

Littrell and an investigator recently visited the
Philippines and interviewed several people who claim the
agent, using an alias "Richard Han," paid for himself and
others to have sex with prostitutes. Alex Escosio, who
worked at Area 51, told defense attorneys that Han "always
paid for everything, including alcohol, private rooms, food
and girls for the entire group of people he brought in,"
court documents show.

"Although the government represents that these expenditures
were for `entertainment and cocktail (tips included),' it is
impossible that the agent could not have known that they
money went toward prostitutes," Littrell wrote in court

Area 51 was raided in May by Philippine authorities where 60
victims of sex trafficking were rescued, some of whom were
underage girls, Littrell said. At least seven people were

Keith Dietterle, FBI analyst, accused of distributing child
By Jennifer Donelan
December 3, 2012 - 05:37 pm

An FBI analyst has been accused of distributing child
pornography in a disturbing case that's left his neighbors
wanting answers.

A task force made up of FBI agents and D.C. police officers
busted Keith Dietterle. The 28-year-old will appear for a
preliminary hearing Tuesday.

Dietterle is accused of sending child pornography to another
man he met in a chat room frequented by individuals who have
a sexual interest children. But the person Dietterle was
allegedly speaking with was a D.C. police detective.

According to court documents, agents say Dietterle thought
he was communicating with a man who claimed to be sexually
abusing a 3-year-old nephew and 12-year-old daughter. The
detective wrote he and Dietterle discussed a possible
meeting with the "children" for sex. Over a two week period,
Dietterle sent three images via Yahoo instant messenger
depicting child pornography, court documents state.

Dietterle is accused of later sending multiple links,
including a 13-minute video, images and six separate videos
of underage children all being sexually abused.

FBI employee accused of rape remained on job for months
Sheriff's officials in Porter County, Indiana, now say they informed the FBI last July that one of the bureau's employees had been implicated in a teenage rape case
Friday, January 29, 2016 06:29PM
CHICAGO -- Sheriff's officials in Porter County, Indiana, now say they informed the FBI last July that one of the bureau's employees had been implicated in a teenage rape case. Despite that, the employee remained on the job in Chicago for months.

As the I-Team first reported, FBI computer specialist James Luttinen told police last summer he was drunk when he had sex with a teenage relative who was babysitting his sons.
Chicago FBI employee charged with raping teen relative

Even though Indiana authorities now say they reported Luttinen to FBI officials in July, he continued working at the Chicago field office for nearly six months, according to sources familiar with the case.

Luttinen worked at the FBI's regional headquarters on Chicago's Near West Side. He wasn't a special agent, but did have a government security clearance since being hired in 2009 because he worked on federal law enforcement computers.

Police say the 33-year-old resident of Crown Point, Ind., admitted in July to having sex in his home with a teenage girl - a relative who was babysitting. The police report lays out in graphic details how Luttinen gave the girl alcohol and Jell-O shots and was drunk himself, along with very specific details that he admitted according to the report.

Paperwork was provided to FBI officials in Chicago in July, according to Porter County officials, but Luttinen continued working at the Chicago FBI office for nearly six months, according to sources familiar with the case.

According to a statement from Porter County, it was last July that "contact was made with the agency to make them aware of the allegations and copies of the report were faxed to them."

He was arrested a week ago Friday at the FBI office - with the FBI's assistance - charged with rape and is still being held on $100,000 bond.

The FBI now has him on administrative leave, according to a spokesman.

However, FBI officials in Chicago won't explain why Luttinen was not removed from his post when they were first informed of the rape admission last summer.

The FBI requires employs to self-report a wide range of personal conduct to their superiors - from name changes to bankruptcies to DUI's. Certainly rape would be on the list, and all federal agencies require those with security clearances to self-report.

Whether Luttinen did so is not clear, but the FBI knew about this. The question

After 30 years, a prisoner gets a chance for justice

George Perrot was tied to a rape by an FBI analysis of a strand of hair, a method that has since been discredited.

George Perrot was tied to a rape by an FBI analysis of a strand of hair, a method that has since been discredited.

January 28, 2016

George Perrot could soon be free at last. He should never have been behind bars.

In a groundbreaking ruling with national implications, a Superior Court judge on Tuesday ordered that he be given a new trial on the rape charge that put him behind bars for so long. It is the first time a judge in the United States has ruled that justice was denied because prosecutors relied on forensic hair analysis, now widely discredited.

“George was only 17 when he was arrested and has spent 30 years in prison without ever receiving a fair trial,” said his attorney, Kirsten V. Mayer. “He never had the opportunity to do the everyday things that are so easy to take for granted when you are not in prison. We are now working to reunite him with his family as soon as possible.”

Perrot was charged with raping an elderly Springfield woman in 1985, when he was 17, even though the victim, a neighbor, insisted he was not her attacker.

No matter, prosecutors argued: There was other evidence against Perrot — most notably, a single strand of hair found at the scene. On the stand, an expert witness from the FBI testified that the hair, found on the victim’s bed, was a match for Perrot, and that only someone “with a lesser amount of training” would conclude otherwise. In closing arguments, prosecutor Francis Bloom told jurors the hair evidence was so strong that Perrot could be innocent only if police had planted that strand in the victim’s house.

The jury convicted him.

We now know that Bloom crossed a line — in this and in other ways — presenting the jury with a false choice, a fact underscored by Judge Robert J. Kane’s thoughtful and thorough decision Tuesday.

Over the last two decades, consensus has grown that the microscopic hair analysis that was crucial to Perrot’s conviction, and a factor in hundreds of others, amounts to bogus science. The FBI now acknowledges that nobody can identify a particular person as the source of a hair or say whether a match is even probable.

“It is not a close call,” Judge Kane wrote. “Without that [hair analysis], the Commonwealth’s claims of Perrot’s violence were open to several lines of attack conducive

Nevada Assemblyman Accuses FBI, Oregon State Police of Murder in Shooting Death of LaVoy Finicum

In Portland on Friday, after the last four Malheur wildlife refuge occupiers made their first court appearance, Nevada Assemblyman John Moore spoke to reporters outside the Federal Courthouse. “In my opinion, Mr. Finicum was murdered,” he said, referring to LaVoy Finicum’s shooting death by Oregon state police.

“This man was trying to surrender,” Moore said, “but they chose violence and murder rather than to apprehend him.” A member of the Libertarian Party of Nevada and a former Army Ranger who was elected after having raised essentially no money at all, Moore described the action taken in the video that the FBI released of Finicum’s death as an “ambush.”

“That man died at the hands of the Oregon state police, and federal agents, and he did not need to. That’s why I’m here today, that’s why I came up here—to try to prevent the further loss of life,” he said. “I will travel anywhere for that purpose.”

Finicum’s death last month, following a car chase in which most of the Oregon occupiers leadership was arrested, has become the subject of much paranoid theorizing by militia and patriot groups across the country, as well as by those sympathetic to such groups. Shortly after his death, another Nevada lawmaker, Assemblywoman Shelly Shelton, wrote a Facebook post comparing Finicum to Moses and Jesus:

From Moses who killed an Egyptian for abusing his people, to Jesus who died on a cross as a condemned criminal, many of those who operate outside the box and promote love and justice over the current form of government are treated as outcasts and many times murdered.

Today we were reminded that the power of evil is still alive and well as LaVoy Finicum was gunned down and murdered in Oregon. LaVoy was a man who had documented the suffering to which he and his family had been subjected, via the heavy hand of the government, through his writings and his videos.

Oregon lawmakers are considering a bill to (temporarily) bar the disclosure of the officer’s name who actually pulled the trigger, the Oregonian reported last week. Oregon State

San Diego Police and FBI Drove Local Black Panthers Underground

by Frank Gormlie on March 15, 2016 · 2 comments

in California, Civil Disobedience, Civil Rights, Culture, History,
Media, Organizing, Politics, San Diego
black panthers U-TUnion-Tribune Finally “Finds” San Diego’s Black

In a very decent February 28 article about San Diego’s Black Panthers
penned by Peter Rowe of the San Diego U-T, some of the city’s
turbulent civil rights and Black power movement history from the
Sixties and Seventies was uncovered.

First, it’s amazing to some San Diegans, including Rowe, that San
Diego even had a Black Panther chapter back in the day. And that’s a
credit that the San Diego Union and Tribune themselves can claim, for
the coverage of local Panthers and the civil rights movement in
general was skewed due to the right-wing – and yes, racist – policies
and bias of its owners and editors. Think the Copley family, who ran
the city’s only pair of dailies for decades.

But now thanks to Rowe, some of this history has been dusted off and
bared for all to read. Much of the article recounts the experiences of
one Henry Lee Wallace, now 64 and still in San Diego, but back then, a
member of the local Panthers.

Wallace told Rowe, that:

“San Diego has never wanted to recognize its history within the civil
rights movement, especially the Black Panthers.”

In an accompanying article, Rowe tells how the reporter found out
about surviving members of the local Panthers by a fluke, when a U-T
photographer met Wallace, who is now a musician and bus-driver, in an
unrelated story. Fortunately for us, Rowe followed it up, and
interviewed the former chapter member.

Much like the current Black Lives Matter movement, fifty years ago,
the Black Panther Party demanded an end to discrimination against
African-Americans and wanted a crackdown on abusive police.

And Rowe adds, that the Panthers still have survived “as a potent

There are echoes in pop culture: During the Super Bowl halftime show,
Beyoncé performed with dancers in Panther-style berets and leather
coats. On the street: The “Black Lives Matter” movement revives a key
part of the Panthers’ agenda, arguing that law enforcement still
violently targets African-Americans.

Even on television: Public Broadcasting recently aired a new
documentary, “The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution.”

Plus, we find out that Wallace and other local former Panthers are
assisting a filmmaker, Cheryl Morrow, in making a documentary,
“American Patriots: The San Diego Chapter of the Black Panthers,”
which is planned for completion this month.

Wallace joined the Panthers in the late Sixties, along with his
stepfather and mother and siblings, having been recruited by its
leader, Kenny Denmon, whom Rowe calls “a fiery San Diego State
University student enlisted by the Panthers’ national spokesman,
Eldridge Cleaver.”

Rowe was surprised to learn that the Panthers, despite their militant

… had an ambitious social program. They started schools, supplied
groceries to seniors and operated a free breakfast program that, at
its height, fed 20,000 children a day (nationally).

In San Diego, the Panthers served breakfasts in the parish hall of
Christ the King church, at first, then moved the program to a quieter
area. They also began what they called “freedom schools”for Black
kids and tried to instill pride and self-worth into the children. Rowe
found that many in the Southeast neighborhood –

… still applaud the Panthers, citing the free breakfasts, the baskets
of groceries, the willingness to campaign for black political
candidates and to oppose police brutality.

So, what happened to the Black Panthers of San Diego?

Rowe racks it all up to “internal schisms and external pressure” –
that the local Panthers disagreed with another local Black nationalist
group, and had shoot-outs with them, and 2 local Panthers were killed.
Plus the FBI claimed credit for forcing the chapter to be defunct.

But what Rowe misses is the emphasis of history. And it’s this:

Local San Diego police – and the FBI – literally drove the Black
Panthers underground. With daily harassment, arrests, jailings of its
members, city cops did their best to ensure that local members
couldn’t walk children across the street or drive across the city
without being stopped by San Diego police. If a cop saw a Black
Panther bumpersticker on a car, that car would be stopped and its
occupants probably arrested.

No one outside the Panthers knew this better than local attorney
Charles “Ted” Bumer, who took on their many cases, usually pro bono,
and tried to defend them from a law enforcement and criminal justice
system that was out and out racist.

Local legal worker Kathy Gilberd used to work for Ted Bumer after he
helped the Panthers, but he shared some of his experiences with her.
“Ted used to tell me some of the stories when he worked with the
Panthers doing draft counseling in the Black community,” she said.
Bumer was the movement lawyer for San Diego.

From the local gerdames to the FBI’s COINTELPRO Program, the Panthers
were forced out of San Diego, at least, from being public. Nationally,
cops were involved in numerous shoot-outs with Panthers, such as in
Chicago and Los Angeles. Panther leaders were assassinated by police
in some cities.

But here in San Diego, chapter members had to refrain from doing
things publicly and openly. Partially because there’s never been a
large African-American community in San Diego, local Panthers could
not draw upon the support that larger cities provided.

Rowe provides:

In retrospect, though, it became evident that much of this violence
was incited by the FBI. Under then-director J. Edgar Hoover, a
counter-intelligence program dubbed COINTELPRO worked to discredit
many “hate groups,” with the Panthers leading the list.

Congressional investigations into COINTELPRO revealed that the FBI
tried to stir up hostility between the Panthers and US, a black power
group embracing a pan-African philosophy. During a January 1969
skirmish on the UCLA campus, two Panthers were shot to death by US

Later, three more members of the different Black groups were gunned
down in this FBI-fueled rivalry.

In the end, as Rowe recounts, the FBI took credit.

“San Diego has aggressively pursued a policy of disrupting and
neutralizing the local chapter of the BPP in San Diego through
Bureau-approved counterintelligence maneuvers,” an agency memo
reported in March 1969. The memo added, “it appears that Special Agent
personnel may merit some sort of recognition.”

It is now very clear that the local San Diego Black Panthers didn’t
just fall victim to “rivalries” with other groups and from “internal
schisms” (they had them), but were consciously and intentionally
driven from sight by law enforcement, the local cops and the FBI.

And with the handmaiden work by the local establishment press, the
twins San Diego Union and Evening Tribune, no one knew what was really
going on. It’s fairly recognized now that the earlier renditions of
our current monopoly daily were publications that gave San Diego the
nickname of “Little Mississippi” – understood all too well by the
African-American community.

At least now, Peter Rowe has taken it upon himself to tell some of
this story. We certainly applaud his efforts, but need to remind him
of the true reasons San Diego lost their Black Panthers. How do I
know? I was there – I was p

EVERYBODY does it.

That’s the response Jane Turner got when she told federal
investigators that a fellow FBI agent had stolen a Tiffany globe found
at the World Trade Center after the Sept. 11 terror attacks.

In a meeting, two agents from the U.S. Department of Justice inspector
general’s office said they already knew personnel had taken property
from Ground Zero.

“What do you expect – that we go into every FBI office to retrieve
trinkets?” Turner quoted the agents as saying, according to a document
obtained by The Post.

The inspector general’s office did go on to investigate Turner’s
allegations – and found that “many FBI employees” took “souvenirs”
from the WTC site and the Fresh Kills landfill on Staten Island, where
Ground Zero rubble was sifted for body parts, personal belongings and

The “souvenirs” the agents stole included a mangled fork, a broken
figurine of a police officer, a small metal plate and keys that read
“WTC,” “WTC Security” patches that were found on shirtsleeves, and a
WTC Christmas ornament.

One of the agents had taken more than 70 pounds of debris from Fresh
Kills, keeping some and doling out the rest to friends, relatives and
colleagues, the report says.

And it wasn’t the first time something like this had happened – the
report found FBI agents had helped themselves to keepsakes in other
infamous cases, including the Oklahoma City bombing and the Unabomber.

Turner, 53, of Minneapolis, told The Post she thought twice about
coming forward with the information that resulted in citations of
misconduct against two FBI agents and the discovery of widespread
removal of grisly mementos from Ground Zero by FBI personnel.

“Did I really want to end my career over a stupid crystal ball?” she
asked herself.

Turner noticed the chipped, cracked globe displayed on a holder while
walking by a FBI secretary’s desk in 2002. She told the secretary it
was “interesting.”

“It came from Ground Zero!” the secretary boasted, saying an FBI agent
had brought it back from New York.

But, the secretary mused, “It kind of gives me the creeps, because the
person who owned it is probably dead.”

He was. It wasn’t until last week, when the paperweight was shown on a
newscast about the scandal, that the apparent owner was identified.

Adele Milanowycz of Cranford, N.J., said it belonged to her son
Gregory, 25, who kept the gift from his girlfriend on his desk at Aon
Corp. on the WTC’s 93rd floor.

Milanowycz sent letters requesting the return of the globe a week ago,
a plea that was seconded by her state’s senators, but she has yet to
hear back from the FBI or Justice Department.

“I think they should try to get back everything that was stolen, even
if they have to offer amnesty to people,” she told The Post.

TURNER said she finally decided to report the globe not just because
it probably belonged to a 9/11 victim, but because it could torpedo a
criminal case on which she had been working.

She had just finished investigating Kieger Enterprises, a

FBI agent faces gun-possession trial

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Anti-War Editors Test FBI's 'Threat Assessments'

http://www.courthousenews.com/2016/03/2 ... sments.htm" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

SAN FRANCISCO - The FBI's power to investigate people based purely on their speech was tested in a Federal Court hearing Thursday, with the judge seemingly inclined to side with the feds on the issue.
Two antiwar news editors who sued the FBI in 2013 say the decision to investigate them lacked a legitimate law-enforcement purpose and files on them should therefore be purged.
Dennis Joseph Raimondo aka Justin Raimondo and Eric Anthony Garris, editors of the Antiwar.com news site, sued the FBI in 2013 for allegedly brushing off their FOIA requests and violating the Privacy Act.
The Privacy Act requires the government only hold information on people that is "relevant and necessary to accomplish a purpose of the agency."
The editors say the FBI had no legitimate basis to suspect them of any criminal wrongdoing and that they were investigated purely because of their First Amendment activities.
They also say the FBI improperly invoked exemptions to withhold redacted portions of files it released after the suit was filed three years ago.
Three FBI memos from 2004, 2002 and 1972 were the focus of debate between civil rights attorneys and the government during Thursday's hearing on dueling motions for summary judgment.
The first file at issue was a threat assessment conducted on the two editors

FBI Director James Comey,

Your recent statements and actions in the Apple vs FBI case have made it clear: you’ve lost touch with reality in your misguided crusade against basic encryption technology. You repeatedly stated, under oath, that the FBI had no alternatives other than forcing Apple to build a backdoor into the San Bernardino iPhone, a claim that technology and security experts quickly disproved. If your statements to Congress were not outright lies, they imply that you are deeply ignorant of basic technology. In this modern age, that’s unacceptable for someone in your position. But the FBI’s very public mishandling of the Apple case is just the latest example of your dangerous lack of judgment and regard for civil liberties. The media may not mention it, but we remember that you authorized Bush’s massive, illegal domestic surveillance program; that you approved torture techniques like waterboarding; that you moved effortlessly from the DOJ to defense contractors and hedge fund boards and now to the FBI. We’re afraid that after all these years unchecked, you’ve lost sight of what’s good for American Democracy.

Director Comey, you’re off the rails and your extreme behavior is putting lives in danger.

We all know that the Apple v. FBI case was about more than just one iPhone. When pushed, you admitted as much yourself. This was just your latest of many attempts to circumvent the constitution in the name of fighting terrorism. But the worst part is that your quest against encryption is not only an attack on our civil liberties, it’s an attack on our all of our security and public safety. Encryption protects our hospitals, airports, and power plants. Your obsession with demonizing basic security technology could seriously harm our national security.

We’re not the only people who are concerned for you. Current and former NSA directors have spoken out against you. NSA Director Adm. Mike Rogers has called the FBI’s campaign against encryption a “waste of time.” Rogers believes that end-to-end encryption is foundational to this country’s future.

When even the NSA thinks you’re spying too hard, it’s time to resign.

You’ve been pursuing this destructive path for a long time. As Deputy Attorney General under President Bush, you helped invent the illegal mass surveillance of all Americans, in part by forcing the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to rubber stamp a dramatically expanded (and illegal) reading of surveillance law, creating and subsequently upholding the NSA’s warrantless eavesdropping program.

Perhaps the most upsetting part of it all is that while the FBI under your leadership has committed itself to dangerous and illegal activities, you have refrained from doing a critical part of your job: investigating crimes committed by the politically powerful. Instead of prosecuting banks, you literally work for them. You haven't even read the infamous torture report, which details flagrantly illegal activity by the government and even the FBI.

Why haven’t you investigated torture? Perhaps because you authorized “enhanced interrogation techniques” like waterboarding, or maybe because you personally pushed forward a case in which an American citizen was imprisoned and and tortured on American soil for years without a trial.

We’ve written to you today because enough is enough.

You’re hurting your own reputation, but you’re also hurting us. You’ve lost sight of what’s important, and what so many people love and value about America. If you continue as FBI Director, we believe you will do irrevocable harm to our country. We implore you to resign.

Deal in cops' whistleblower case means Emanuel won't testify on code of silence

Chicago police
1:25 pm, May 31, 2016
With a trial just minutes away, the Emanuel administration announced a $2 million settlement in a lawsuit brought by two Chicago police officers who alleged they were blackballed by the department for blowing the whistle on corruption, keeping the mayor from having to testify about the code of silence.

The explosive civil rights lawsuit filed by Officers Shannon Spalding and Daniel Echeverria against the city and top department brass had threatened to expose an ugly side to the police code of silence that allegedly put at risk the lives of cops willing to uncover corruption within their ranks.

The city's top attorney, Corporation Counsel Steven Patton, said the decision to settle the case had nothing to do with the fact that the judge had ordered Mayor Rahm Emanuel to testify about what he knew about the code of silence in light of his acknowledgment of its existence in a highly publicized speech to the City Council days after the court-ordered release of the video of the Laquan McDonald shooting.

Patton told reporters the settlement was hammered out over the weekend after attorneys for the officers approached them with a settlement offer that was "substantially lower" than what they had previously demanded. The payout, which needs to be approved by the City Council, includes about $1 million in legal fees, so each officer would wind up splitting about $500,000, he said.

The trial had been scheduled to

Gitmo Redactions Confound Defense Counsel

     GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE, Cuba (CN) — Defense attorneys for an accused 9/11 financier complained about how prosecutorial redactions impede their work.
     Kicking off pretrial proceedings Monday, Ammar al Baluchi's attorney Col. James Connell accused the government of scrambling discovery productions to make it harder on his team to match up documents.
     Al Baluchi, who is also known as Ali abd al Aziz Ali, is accused of helping to finance the 9/11 attacks and arranging travel to the United States for some of the hijackers. He, along with alleged plot mastermind Khalid Shaikh Mohammad and three other alleged co-conspirators, faces the death penalty if convicted.
     The case has dragged on for years. These latest proceedings mark the third attempt to try the five men. The case was briefly set to be tried in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York before being sent back to a military commission in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in 2011.
     Al Baluchi's defense team says the government has improperly redacted hundreds of documents, depriving it of hundreds of thousands of pieces of information that could potentially be valuable to his defense.
     Such evidence is known as Brady material after the landmark Supreme Court case Brady v. Maryland, which compels prosecutors to turn favorable evidence over to the defense.
     Since the government has blacked out serial numbers of documents in al Baluchi's case, as well as names and numbers of potential witnesses, the defense claims it has been prevented from compiling information that could help their case.
     In a motion from March 2014, al Baluchi's team said the government turned over multiple sets of FBI documents but that it had removed serial numbers and scrambled the pages to leave the lawyers unable to match them with other documents they have received.
     Not having serial numbers also left the defense unable to compile a spreadsheet that could show holes in the government's production or find references to the documents found in other reports like the 9/11 commission.

Senate Bill Allows FBI to Snoop Emails


Posted May 31st, 2016 @ 4:44am by iHeartMedia's Nik Rajkovic
The FBI is pushing legislation giving it warrentless power to check emails, and the bill already passed the Senate Intelligence Committee.

The 2017 Intelligence Authorization Act would extend current FBI powers authorized under the Patriot Act, forcing telecoms to hand over email and phone records of terror suspects.

“It is a warrantless search because it is not signed by a third-party judge, where an agent has to provide probable cause in the form of an affidavit, its an administrative subpoena basically,” says former FBI counter-terrorism agent Jim Conway, president of Global Intel Strategies.

Abuses on the Border

Donald Trump says he plans to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, but civil liberties advocates say the border is already over-policed, with reports of abuses and even fatal shootings in Southwestern communities.

In this Tuesday, September 15, 2015, photo U.S. Customs and Border Patrol agents patrol along the border fence in Hidalgo, Texas.

Amanda Rodríguez Varela, who lives in Ciudad Juarez just south of El Paso, Texas, is fearful that her husband will find out that officials at the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency (CBP) have concluded that she’s a prostitute.

The 51-year-old wife and mother’s ordeal began last September, when CBP officers grilled her as she crossed the border from Juarez to El Paso to shop at Walmart. “I don’t know why they decided I was a prostitute,” Varela told the Prospect in Spanish. “It seemed very arbitrary.”

As Varela tells it, CBP agents called her a puta, or whore, and asked her if she had syphilis or gonorrhea. After about an hour, the officials let her cross, but a month later, she was detained once again. This time, she faced almost ten grueling hours of detention and interrogation. The agents fingerprinted her and searched her body, she says. An officer named Quintanas (she only remembers his last name) mocked her work as a women’s rights advocate.

“I was just crying and praying,” Varela recalled recently during an interview. “They left me in a room for hours with just a little bottle of water. I was afraid I was going to go to prison. I was so scared that I didn’t even think


What Happened When the FBI Investigated Foreclosure Fraud in Florida
By David Dayen

May 31, 2016
https://www.vice.com/read/what-happened ... in-florida" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Six years ago, FBI agents in Jacksonville, Florida, wrote a memo to their bosses in Washington, DC, that could have unraveled the largest consumer fraud in American history. It went to the heart of the shady mortgage industry that precipitated the financial crisis, and the case promised to involve nearly every major bank in the country, honing in on the despicable practice of using bogus documents to illegally kick people out of their homes.

But despite impaneling a grand jury, calling in dozens of agents and forensic examiners, doing 75 interviews, issuing hundreds of subpoenas, and reviewing millions of documents, the criminal investigation resulted in just one conviction. And that convict—Lorraine Brown, CEO of the third-party company DocX that facilitated the fraud scheme—was sent to prison for duping the banks.

Thanks to a Freedom of Information Act request, VICE has obtained some 600 pages of documents from the Jacksonville FBI field office showing how agents conducted a sprawling investigation. (The Jacksonville case is also featured in my new book, Chain of Title.) The documents suggest the feds gained a detailed understanding of how and why the mortgage industry enlisted third-party companies to create false documents they presented to courts, as detailed in the 2012 National Mortgage Settlement, for which the big banks paid billions in civil fines. The banks' conduct is described in the settlement documents as "unlawful," and the Jacksonville FBI had it nailed almost two years earlier.

In these case files, you can see the seeds of an alternative history, one where dedicated law enforcement officials take on some of the country's most powerful financial institutions with criminal prosecutions.

So why didn't they?

"Given everything I see here, you'd have thought there would be many more convictions," said Timothy Crino, a now-retired FBI forensic accountant who reviewed case file documents. "If I was the case agent, I would be devastated."

At the center of the FBI investigation were the documents required to turn ordinary mortgages into mortgage-backed securities (MBS). During the housing bubble, banks bought up mortgages and packaged thousands of them at a time into MBS; this was known as securitization. The mortgages were transferred through a series of intermediaries into a trust, and the trust paid out investors with the revenue stream from homeowners' monthly payments.

In the end, of course, an upswing in the number of homeowner defaults led the MBS market to collapse disastrously, nearly taking down the worldwide financial system along with it. But there was another problem. In order to legally foreclose on homeowners, the financial institutions doing the foreclosing must produce documents proving the mortgages were properly transferred from their originators through intermediaries and on to the trusts, detailing every step along that chain.

"If evidence collected shows intent to defraud investors by the real estate trusts, this matter has the potential to be a top ten Corporate Fraud case." —FBI Criminal Investigative Division memo, June 2010

This is common sense: If you accuse someone of stealing your car, you have to establish that you actually owned it in the first place.

This chain of ownership was at the heart of the FBI investigation, according to a "request for resource enhancement" sent on May 25, 2010, from the Jacksonville office to Sharon Ormsby, then chief of the FBI Financial Crimes Section in Washington. (Ormsby no longer works for the bureau, and an attempt to contact her through the Society of Retired Special Agents of the FBI was unsuccessful.)

"The fraud in this matter was the result of negligence in the process of creating Mortgage Backed Securities (MBS)," the memo reads.

The Jacksonville FBI agents cite three reasons why the banks didn't properly transfer the mortgages. First, the sheer volume—millions of loans—would have made it too time-consuming to file each transfer in county courts in advance. Second, it would have been too costly, as each transfer triggers a recording fee of somewhere between $35 to $50. And finally, "during a booming market, the trusts did not recognize the need to secure the loans," because they didn't believe it would ever be called into question in the courts.

The Jacksonville FBI memo claims the trusts committed fraud by reporting to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the credit rating agencies, and investors that they had clear title to the properties when they actually didn't. And agents present evidence that mortgage-servicing companies and their law firms hired third-party outfits to falsify the mortgage documents needed


A belated reckoning

Posted on May 31, 2016 by Farah Jamil in Latest, National

http://aaj.tv/2016/05/a-belated-reckoning/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

WEB DESK: An Argentinian federal court has sentenced the country’s last military dictator, 88-year-old General Reynaldo Bignone, to 20 years imprisonment for kidnapping and ‘disappearing’ more than 100 people during the 1976-1983 dictatorship.

Of this period, Bignone was himself holding absolute power in 1982-1983. The General is already serving life sentences for multiple human rights violations during that dark period. In the landmark trial, 14 other former military officers were sentenced to between eight and 25 years imprisonment for criminal association, kidnapping and torture. Many of them are also serving prison sentences already.

They include one Uruguayan former Colonel, Manuel Cordero Piacentini, who tortured prisoners inside Automotores Orletti, the Buenos Aires repair shop where many captured leftists were ‘interrogated’ under orders from their home countries. One other defendant was convicted on charges separate from the larger case, involving a different set of victims.

Two other accused were absolved of similar charges against them. The unprecedented court verdict after a trial lasting three years in which the four-member judges’ bench received testimony from about 370 witnesses, ruled that Operation Condor was a criminal conspiracy to kidnap and forcibly disappear people across international borders. The covert operation was launched in the 1970s by six South American military dictatorships that used their secret police and intelligence networks in a co-ordinated effort to track down and eliminate their opponents abroad.

Most of those disappeared, tortured and killed were leftists who had sought refuge from brutal repression at home in neighbouring countries and further abroad. The sentences are seen as a milestone because they mark the first time a court has proved that Operation Condor was an international criminal conspiracy by the US-backed regimes in Chile, Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay.

The investigation into the affair was launched in the 1990s when an amnesty law still protected many of the accused. Argentina’s Supreme Court overturned the amnesty in 2005 at the urging of then President Nestor Kirchner. It has taken 40 years after Operation Condor was formally founded and 16 years since the judicial investigation began to deliver justice to some of the victims of Latin America’s past military dictatorships. During this protracted process, several defendants either died or were removed from the judicial process.

Their victims reflected conflicted and bitter feelings about the verdict. Since the bodies of many victims have never been found, Argentine prosecutors argued that the crime of covering up their deaths continues to date and therefore statutory time limits do not apply. A key piece of evidence in the case was a declassified FBI agent’s cable sent in 1976 that described in detail the conspiracy to share intelligence and eliminate leftists across South America. Operation Condor, which started in 1968 and was officially implemented in 1975 by the right-wing dictatorships of the Southern Cone of South America.

Augusto Pinochet of Chile was the most brutal military dictator among them, who had come to power through a bloody US-backed coup in

5 Reasons The Comey Hearing Was The Worst Education In Criminal Justice The American Public Has Ever Had
What America Saw on July 7th in No Way Resembles Our Justice System

Full disclosure: After graduating from Harvard Law School in 2001, I practiced criminal law in multiple jurisdictions over the following seven years, representing more than 2,000 criminal defendants in all. While I supported and voted for Bernie Sanders during the Democratic primary, I’m aware that Sanders is likely to endorse Clinton next week and ― having voted for the Democrat in every election I’ve ever voted in ― I likewise plan to vote for Hillary Clinton if her major-party opponent is Donald Trump come November. So if your reaction to this article in any way depends on the theory that I’m something other than a lifelong Democrat who currently plans to vote for Hillary Clinton in the fall, please reconsider that position.

Having said the above, and speaking as a long-time criminal attorney, what I heard discussed on July 7th, 2016 during FBI Director James Comey’s testimony before Congress in no way resembles the criminal justice system I worked in as a public defender between 2000 and 2007. In representing more than 2,000 indigent defendants in multiple jurisdictions, neither the values nor practices I heard described by Director Comey were at all familiar to me. I feel compelled to speak out about this in part because Comey’s testimony before Congress coincides with the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile ― not to mention scores of other highly publicized shootings of unarmed black men by police officers ― and I have not yet seen anyone draw the conn

The first hugely shocking revelation in the 28-page secret chapter of the Joint Congressional Intelligence Committee Inquiry into the 9/11 attack occurs less than half-way down the very first page, and raises the chief question arising out of the release.

The story of the 9/11 attack is a story of Saudis in Florida.  But the until-now classified pages report show that fully one year after the attack the CIA and FBI remained inexplicably uncomfortable with the essential fact of any real 9/11 investigation: that 15 of the 19 hijackers were Saudi.

Train to Detain: 159th Military Police Battalion at Guardian Shield 2016
Story by Spc. David Alexander 
215th Mobile Public Affairs Detachment
Subscribe 3
CHARLESTON, S.C. – U.S. Army Reserve Soldiers with the 159th Military Police Battalion, Criminal Investigation Division, began the two-week Guardian Shield training event at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Charleston, S.C. on July 24th, 2016. Guardian Shield is a U.S. Army Reserve training exercise focused on the many different aspects of criminal investigations to include domestic violence, intervention, hostage situations, and reactions to active shooters.

The annual event began in 2010 and was originally designed for Army Reserve CID special agents exclusively. However, Guardian Shield has expanded to include training for non-agent Soldiers as well. Agents will train simultaneously with active duty Soldiers, civilian law enforcement, and international law enforcement.

“The general purpose of [Guardian Shield] is to affect the core competency training of our Army Reserve CID Special Agents, as well as our Drug Suppression Team,” said Lt. Col. John M. Dunn, commander of the 159th MP Battalion.

During this year’s training, numerous speakers from additional law enforcement agencies, such as the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force and the DEA, will share best practices and exchange ideas with other Guardian Shield participants. With training offered through Guardian Shield, such as hostage negotiation, 30 special agents will be able to become certified hostage negotiators.

Each year, Guardian Shield evolves to include new training aspects to better prepare Army Reserve CID Soldiers for the variety of threats they may encounter.

“It’s something that we’re continually evaluating at the leadership level in terms of what skills, and what issues we need to address to maintain not just the educational proficiency

Chief Barber said the initial panel was formed with help from U.S. Attorney Kenyen Brown, and FBI Special Agent in Charge Robert Lasky.  

The panel consists of 12 pastors, activist, and community leaders from an area known as the "Campground".  Part of the panels objective is to "review incidents related to police-community relations." 
A second 12 member panel was later formed from the Maysville community. 

According to Chief Barber those two "sub panels" make up the Citywide Citizens Advisory Panel approved last June.  Barber says the citywide panel is still "a work in progress" 

Has the panel's input had an impact on complaints against police employees?
To answer that question FOX10 News checked police data to determine how many citizen complaints have been filed against the department in recent years.

According to the Annual Reports on the MPD website In 2012 there were citizen complaints filed against 24 MPD employees.  That number increased to 64 in 2013.  In 2014 citizens filed complaints against 86 MPD employees. 

But Barber says some of the numbers reflect inaccurate reporting by the department that led to a scandal just before he took over.  For example,  Barber says Internal Affairs records show there were actually complaints involving 93 additional MPD employees that never made it into the annual report in 2012.  Those complaints were labeled inquiries in the IA report.   Barber said his one of his first tasks

Ocean County prosecutor fires detective who sued over alleged misconduct

on July 29, 2016 at 2:58 PM, updated July 29, 2016 at 4:01 PM

TOMS RIVER — Ocean County Prosecutor Joseph Coronato has fired one of two detectives in his office who claimed they were passed over for promotions and retaliated against when they tried to expose alleged misconduct by their co-workers.

Steven Mecka, who had been a detective for the prosecutor's office since 2004, was fired last month after an administrative disciplinary hearing, said his attorney, George Cotz.

Mecka and Detective Juan Pastrana, have filed separate lawsuits against Ocean County Prosecutor Joseph Coronato and some of their co-workers, contend in the litigation that they were retaliated against when they resisted pressure to falsify reports in cases they handled and when they tried to report the alleged misconduct.

Al Della Fave, spokesman for the prosecutor's office, defended the timing of the firing and

a few years later, Kobus noticed a problem — a small-time problem — that could have been fixed right away. He says a bureau supervisor in New York was allowing favorite employees to take time off for their birthdays, so the government had to pay more for other people at the agency to work overtime.

"You know, this is not our money. This is the taxpayers' money, and I want it to be correct," he says.

Kobus documented his concerns in an email. He says he hoped new managers would fix the problem. Instead, the new supervisors were furious with him.

"I was basically told, 'We're going to look at the person that initially did it, and we're going to look at you. And we may fire him or we may fire you,' " he says.

But the worst, Kobus says, is how his request for flextime was handled. Kobus wanted to leave work early to visit his mom in a nursing home, but the FBI sat on the paperwork for months.

UN Rep Slams US Police for Trampling Protesters' Rights
Recent police responses to protesters in Baton Rouge and other US cities violate international human rights law, the representative says

Amid renewed nationwide protests over police killings of black men, a representative from the United Nations toured the United States with a peculiar goal: to assess whether the exercise of freedom of assembly and association in the country conforms to international human rights law.

UN special reporter Maina Kiai concluded a 17-day tour on Tuesday, during which he met with protesters, law enforcement, and government officials in 10 cities—including Baton Rogue, Louisiana; Ferguson, Missouri; Baltimore; and New York City—and observed protests at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland and the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, as well as Black Lives Matter protests in other cities. A full UN report on Kiai's visit is due in June 2017, but Kiai posted his preliminary findings on his Facebook page on Wednesday. Many of them weren't pretty:

US police officers understand appropriate crowd management and de-escalation techniques, but chose not to use them, Kiai said. Black protesters face more aggressive responses from police than other groups, experience "more intimidation and more disrespect," and are detained longer and face more serious charges when arrested. Such treatment can discourage people from participating in protests—an illegal curtailment of their right to do so, Kiai said. He also compared the Baton Rouge Police Department's aggressive response earlier this month to protesters of Alton

Yesterday's Crimes: The SLA, FBI, and Assassination Attempts on Gerald Ford
Posted Fri, Jul 29, 2016 at 8

Ford's second potential woman assassin in two weeks was just as strange as the first, if not even more so. Sara Jane Moore was a middle-aged mom with a son in private school. She was also an FBI informant with ties to the Symbionese Liberation Army (SLA), the group that kidnapped Patty Hearst, as well as the Hearst family itself.

Moore had even been questioned by SF police and Secret Service agents two days before the president's visit, and after she had told San Francisco police that she might try and "test" the president's security team. Police lieutenant and future mayor Frank Jordan confiscated a .44-caliber handgun from Moore, but federal agents deemed her “not of sufficient protective interest to warrant surveillance" and let her go. Nobody bothered to search her house.

Moore later told the Berkeley Barb that the gun she used to try and shoot Ford and the one that was confiscated were both purchased from a Danville gun collector as part of an ATF sting operation. Moore was first recruited as an FBI informant when she volunteered for People in Need, a food distribution program funded by the Hearst family to appease demands by the SLA.

Moore was sentenced to life in prison, and released on parole in 2007 at the

Overtime pays big for handy NYPD workers who aren’t cops

Christopher Millevoi is a stationary engineer for the NYPD who brought home $84,435 in overtime. With his regular salary and miscellaneous additional pay, he made a total of $295,419 in the fiscal year that ended June 30, 2016. (FACEBOOK)
The top overtime earners at the NYPD aren’t patrolling the streets — they’re fixing the pipes and tending the thermostats.

Of the 20 NYPD employees who pocketed the most overtime during the 2016 fiscal year, only three are cops, payroll records show. The rest are civilian tradesmen — including engineers, steamfitters, carpenters and plumbers.

The biggest overtime paycheck went to Christopher Millevoi, a stationary engineer for the department who brought home $84,435.

Millevoi, who has worked for the NYPD for five years, logged 7651/2 extra hours in the year that ended June 30, the records show.

NYCHA plumber racks up $228G in overtime
With his regular salary and miscellaneous other pay, he made $295,419 — beating Police Commissioner Bill Bratton’s $217,442 salary.

Even though cops didn’t dominate the list, the NYPD blew past the $513 million cap on uniformed overtime that Mayor de Blasio and the City Council promised to impose when they struck a deal to hire 1,300 more officers.

Instead, the department doled out $573.6 million in overtime to uniformed members, according to the Independent Budget Office. That’s down from $610.6 million the year before, but well above the “hard cap” officials had pledged to enforce.

Total NYPD overtime costs for both cops and civilians jumped to $716.9 million in 2016, documents show — up from $704.1 million the previous year.

The No. 2 overtime earner was Thomas Incantalupo, a steamfitter, who brought in $84,385 in overtime, bringing his total pay to $212,376.

Formerly-‘Gagged’ FBI Whistleblower Details Congressional Blackmail, Bribery, Espionage, Corruption in Remarkable Videotaped Deposition

Sibel Edmonds’ full under-oath testimony transcript from Ohio election case, details explosive allegations against key members of Congress and other high-ranking State and Defense Department officials...

Just over two weeks ago, FBI translator-turned-whistleblower Sibel Edmonds was finally allowed to speak about much of what the Bush Administration spent years trying to keep her from discussing publicly on the record. Twice gagged by the Bush Dept. of Justice’s invocation of the so-called “State Secrets Privilege,” Edmonds has been attempting to tell her story, about the crimes she became aware of while working for the FBI, for years.

Thanks to a subpoena issued by the campaign of Ohio’s 2nd District Democratic U.S. Congressional candidate David Krikorian, her remarkable allegations of blackmail, bribery, espionage, infiltration, and criminal conspiracy by current and former members of the U.S. Congress, high-ranking State and Defense Department officials, and agents of the government of Turkey are seen and heard here, in full, for the first time, in her under-oath deposition. Both the complete video tape and transcript of the deposition follow below.

Though there was much concern, prior to her testimony, that the Obama Dept. of Justice might re-invoke the “State Secrets Privilege” to keep her from speaking, they did not do so. Nor did they choose to be present at the Washington D.C. deposition.

The BRAD BLOG covered details of some of Edmonds’ startling disclosures made during the deposition, as it happened, in our live blog coverage from August 8th. The deposition included criminal allegations against specifically named members of Congress. Among those named by Edmonds as part of a broad criminal conspiracy: Reps. Dennis Hastert (R-IL), Dan Burton (R-IN), Roy Blunt (R-MO), Bob Livingston (R-LA), Stephen Solarz (D-NY), Tom Lantos (D-CA), as well as an unnamed, still-serving Congresswoman (D) said to have been secretly videotaped, for blackmail purposes, during a lesbian affair.

Ex-FBI special agent to teach protection at conference

In a climate where active shooter situations are increasingly common, knowledge is power when it comes to staying safe.

Preparation is what’s being preached at an upcoming conference on “active shooter or workplace violence” situations Saturday, Aug. 20 in the WiFire conference room. The presentation, sponsored by community education non-profit Pacific Northwest Coalition, is designed to teach everyday people measures that they can take to protect themselves in such situations. The conference presenter is Daniel Guerrero, a former United States Marine Corps officer and FBI special agent of 26 years. Guerrero was a first responder for multiple and significant oversea investigations including the U.S. embassy bombings in Pakistan, Sweden, Kenya and others.

The conference is scheduled to take place from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. and space is still available. Admission costs $25 per person and includes a deli-style lunch. Attendees must RSVP at https://squareup.com/store/pacific-northwest-coalition.

Outside of Guerrero’s service with the marines and FBI, he is currently the director of Security and Emergency Preparedness at Edmonds Community College. Guerrero’s presentation will emphasize the need to increase awareness of actions that can be taken in active shooter situations while not employing scare tactics.

“We never want to create paranoia or any type of hysteria, but rather to increase awareness and simply encourage people to start thinking about it,” Guerrero said. “These are uncomfortable topics for many Americans.”

The presentation will be geared toward situations where people aren’t armed, says Guerrero, since he realizes that most Americans aren’t packing. He will discuss current trends and possible behavior indicators of potential shooters, all while driving home the point of education and preparedness, Guerrero said. The conference will divide an active shooter situation into three phases: preparation, the actual event and the transition to recovery.

“This is common sense information that all of us need to have,” Pacific Northwest Coalition Programs Coordinator Mary Jane Olson said. “Overall, we feel like this is a public service, but I haven’t seen a service like this around.”

Guerrero is fully aware of the increased level of anxiety in society, whether people fret over terrorism or general crime. He says that’s not good, and is doing whatever he can to educate rather than stir the pot.

“Knowledge is power,” said Olson. “It’s a cliché, but it’s true. Not everybody is going to be walking around with a handgun, so this is crucial information for everyday people.”

Judge orders FBI to turn over terrorism task force documents

A federal judge has ordered the Boston office of the FBI to disclose information about its Joint Terrorism Task Force in Massachusetts, including the number of ...
ACLU sought information about the number of terrorism investigations and open cases in Massachusetts and how those investigations were structured. The nonprofit group also wanted details on the task force’s staffing, budget, and overtime. In addition, it demanded “information about how the Massachusetts JTTF functions, how its authority is divided and shared, what safeguards are in place to ensure the civil liberties of those whom it targets, and the number and type of investigations conducted out of Massachusetts.”

The FBI had previously released some of that information to the ACLU, but left much of the documents redacted. Ortiz’s office previously declined to conduct a search, arguing that the request would be repetitive since her office owns the same documents as the FBI.

Burroughs ruled that the FBI and Ortiz’s office will not have to release information about what kind of cases were open at the time of their complaint in 2014, just the quantity.

Are Boston police as enlightened as we thought?

  AUGUST 17, 2016

As is police officers’ resistance to other measures that would improve their performance and make them more accountable. This week, we got word that not a single officer has agreed to take part in a mediation program designed to resolve minor public grievances against them. It’s a constructive, progressive way to settle disputes, defusing the smaller conflicts that can lead to bigger ones — and apparently not one police officer is interested in trying it.

Then, on Tuesday, we learned the department will be assigning body cameras to 100 officers. They’ll be ordered to wear them because, after months of delays and union negotiations finally resulted in a voluntary pilot program, zero officers stepped up to wear the cameras.

“Community policing is about trust,” said Matthew Segal, legal director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Massachusetts, which first approached the department about cameras two years ago. “There have got to be real, meaningful policies . . . in place that assure that accountability isn’t just something we talk about.”

Folk icon Buffy Sainte-Marie continues her journey — performs at Philadelphia Folk Festival 2016

Published: Wednesday, August 17, 2016

After publicly addressing the mistreatment of Native Americans, Sainte-Marie was ultimately blacklisted, first by American radio, as well by Presidents Johnson, Nixon and FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover.

“I found this out years after the fact,” recalls Sainte-Marie, “and I was put out of business in the United States. I didn’t know what it was. It’s not like somebody calls you and says, ‘Guess what? You’re on a black list.’ I didn’t find out ‘til almost 20 years later. So I had no idea. I just figured all singers come and all singers go. I just thought it was a normal music business happening. I had no idea my music had been repressed.”

Postby msfreeh » Thu Aug 25, 2016 7:23 pm

http://oswaldconference.com/speakers/judyth-vary-baker/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Judyth Vary Baker was born South Bend, Indiana, is an American artist, writer, poet and social scientist specializing in linguistics. She is the author of Me & Lee: How I came to know, love and lose Lee Harvey Oswald, which is an underground best seller. Her newest book is David Ferrie, Mafia Pilot and Key to the Kennedy Assassination.

When Judyth was 16, her abilities in science were first recognized when she invented a modified method for obtaining magnesium from seawater. But her dream was to cure cancer after her beloved grandmother, Anna Whiting, died of breast cancer in 1954. Judyth’s work in cancer research as a teen attracted national attention and widespread support, culminating in inducing lung cancer in mice, using tobacco aerosols and radiation, in only seven days — a feat that had not been accomplished, at the time, in the nation’s top laboratories.

Newspaper articles chronicled her work, which was investigated, then mentored, by three doctors noted for their crusade linking cancer to tobacco products: Dr. Alton Ochsner of Ochsner Clinic, Dr. Harold Diehl (Vice President of Research of the American Cancer Society), and Dr. George Moore, Director of Roswell Park Institute for Cancer Research. These doctors, along with Nobel Prize winners Dr. Harold Urey and Sir Robert Robinson, gave Judyth assistance and and training, with a focus on melanoma and cancer viruses, described in newspaper articles as an assignment “to make cancer more deadly…” The argument was that enhancing cancer growth could be a key to controlling it.

After nearly two years of training at Roswell Park Institute, in laboratories in Indiana, and at the University of Florida, Dr. Ochsner invited Judyth to work with noted cancer specialist Dr. Mary S. Sherman in New Orleans. After the ‘summer internship’ she was promised early entry into Tulane Medical School. However, she was steered into a biological warfare project aimed to eliminate Cuba’s Fidel Castro, directed by Ochsner, whose organization, INCA, was famed for its anti-communist zeal.

Author Edward T. Haslam has linked a linear particle accelerator that Baker said was involved in the project to Drs. Ochsner and Sherman, through a detailed study of Dr. Sherman’s brutal, unsolved murder on July 21, 1964, the day the Warren Commission came to New Orleans to obtain testimonies. During this same time period, Baker met and fell in love with Lee Harvey Oswald, the accused assassin of President John F. Kennedy.

Witnesses and a mass of documentation support Judyth’s efforts in what she describes as a crusade “to clear Oswald’s name of a crime he didn’t commit, and to reveal the cancer treatment industry’s crimes. “They could have cured cancer decades ago — but that would have ruined their cash cow.,” Says Judyth. Due to death threats as a whistler-blower, Judyth is forced to live overseas, though she returns periodically to continue her crusade.

“Everything you’ve been told about Lee Oswald by the government is false,” she states. “Lee actually saved Kennedy’s life in Chicago. The full truth is in my book Me & Lee, which has become an underground best seller.” A History Channel documentary “The Love Affair” (2003) is available on YouTube. Me & Lee: How I came to know, love and lose Lee Harvey Oswald (Trine day, 2010), and Judyth’s new book, David Ferrie: Mafia Pilot (Trine day, 2014), along with her many appearances on TV, radio and Internet have created a following of supporters who, she says “now understand how they’ve been lied to by the government — and they want justice for John F. Kennedy, for Lee Oswald, and for those who suffer from cancer.

I want everybody to know that the government weaponized cancer back in 1963, that the government has patented cures for cancer — but cancer treatment is such a profitable industry that a cure for cancer is always last in line for funding.” She states that Oswald was working for the FBI, and had been loaned to the CIA from the Office of Naval Intelligence, to keep watch over the cancer project “that was being developed to kill Castro, whose death by a weaponized form of lung cancer could be called a ‘death by natural causes’ — because previous methods tried by the CIA had all failed.”

Oswald’s job was to identify pro-Castro spies in New Orleans, and his “pro-Castro activities,” Judyth says, “were to make him look like a harmless pro-Castro fool.” Judyth joins former Secret Service agent Abraham Bolden in confirming that Oswald was the informant named “Lee” who saved Kennedy’s life in Chicago three weeks prior to the assassination. “I spoke of Lee’s attempts to save JFK a decade before Abraham’s story reached the public.”

In 2003, Judyth was filmed saying Oswald called the operation to kill Kennedy “The Big Event,” several years prior to CIA’s E. Howard Hunt identifying the CIA operation to kill Kennedy by the same name. For a number of such reasons, Judyth’s claims are being more widely supported than when she first spoke out, except by those defending the Warren Commission’s conclusions, which Baker calls “an obsolete failure and an odious obstruction of justice for both Kennedy and Oswald.”

Judyth says she was ejected from the project to kill Castro because of her ethical objections to use one or more prisoners who had volunteered to test the deadly, SV-40 derived cancer bio-weapon. “They wouldn’t have volunteered to be tested for something that would kill them, if it was successful,” she states. After she was forced to return to Florida, Judyth was placed in a high-end chemistry laboratory, Peninsular ChemResearch, to temporarily hide her being “blackballed” from cancer research. She was then forced to leave the field altogether.

Judyth says she and Oswald kept in touch after her return to Florida, and that they planned to divorce (both had unhappy marriages), but first, Oswald had to deliver the material, after it was successfully tested, to a contact in Mexico City. When the contact failed to show, Oswald suspected that he had been lured to Mexico City. Bitter over being banned from cancer research, and their plans to marry delayed when Oswald was ordered back to Dallas, Judyth was devastated when she saw Oswald shot on live TV. Judyth says Oswald was part of an “abort team” that he described to her only 37 ½ hours before the Kennedy assassination. When Baker told researcher Jim Marrs about the “abort team” in late 1999 or early 2000, at this time only a handful of insiders knew of its existence.

In 2000 Baker was nearly filmed three times by Sixty Minutes in a 14-month investigation that Sixty Minutes’ founder, Don Hewitt, said was the most expensive investigation in the history of the program at that time. He stated to C-Span that “the door was slammed in our faces.” But then Gerry Hemming, a legendary name in Kennedy assassination research, met Judyth, who gave him “insider information” that impressed him so much that he asked British documentary maker Nigel Turner to film her. “The Love Affair” [Episode 8: “The Men Who Killed Kennedy”] was aired by The History Channel in Nov. 2003, but none of Baker’s living witnesses were included. Episode 9 [“The Guilty Men”] quickly generated lawsuit threats from former Pres. Lyndon Johnson’s widow, and two former Presidents: all three new episodes [7-8-9] were quickly banned, and The History Channel apologized to the Johnson’s. Over the next few years, all of the other segments of The Men Who Killed Kennedy filmed by Turner, aired for over a decade on the History Channel, were also removed. “Mr. Turner has now vanished,” Judyth said. “He’s obviously been told to shut up. This happens to many brave souls who dare reveal the truth.”

In 2012, a 3-act play by noted playwright Lisa Soland [“The Sniper’s Nest”], based on Me & Lee, began production in the United States and overseas. In 2014, Me & Lee was issued as an audiobook. Judyth, who has lived mostly overseas since 2003 due to death threats, has been hosted by supporters in nation-wide book tours in 2011, 2012 and 2013. In 2014, she was asked to host and direct The JFK Assassination Conference (held in Dallas/Arlington Nov. 22-23-24), which was financed by numerous donations from supporters.

Judyth’s poetry is collected into two books: When the Clouds Came Flying By (for children) and A Dangerous Thing to Do (available on Kindle) She was co-author of a three-act play, Castles in the Sky, with John MacLean, for the Texas regional LDS Sesquicentennial. She also composes music. In 1976, Judyth’s name was one of those placed on the Bicentennial Monument in Stafford, Texas for civic service. Her oil and mixed-media paintings, logos and lithographs sell worldwide.

Judyth was married to Robert A. Baker, III in Mobile, Alabama in 1963. They had five children between 1968-1978: Baker says David Ferrie “warned me not to speak of what I knew, if I wished to stay alive. I was told to be ‘a vanilla girl.'” She thus remained silent for 35 years. Then, when Baker’s last child left home Dec. 26, 1998. she began writing a series of letters for her son to publish. “I felt guilty,” she says, “after seeing the film ‘JFK.’ I had promised Lee I would tell his children the truth about him. I had to do it.”

Since then, Judyth has continued to gain support as researchers meet her and familiarize themselves with her account. Today, Judyth lives in various countries overseas. “I regret that I haven’t been able to be a grandma and great-grandma,” she says. “Some of my family

For one bright moment back in the late 1960s, we actually believed that we could change our country. We had identified the enemy. We saw it up close, we had its measure, and we were very hopeful that we would prevail. The enemy was hollow where we had substance. All of that substance was destroyed by an assassin’s bullet. – William Pepper (page 15, The Plot to Kill King)

By Craig McKee

The revelations are stunning. The media indifference is predictable.

Thanks to the nearly four-decade investigation by human rights lawyer William Pepper, it is now clear once and for all that Martin Luther King was murdered in a conspiracy that was instigated by then FBI director J. Edgar Hoover and that also involved the U.S. military, the Memphis Police Department, and “Dixie Mafia” crime figures in Memphis, Tennessee. These and many more incredible details of the King assassination are contained in a trilogy of volumes by Pepper culminating with his latest and final book on the subject, The Plot to Kill King. He previously wrote Orders to Kill (1995) and An Act of State (2003).

With virtually no help from the mainstream media and very little from the justice system, Pepper was able to piece together what really happened on April 4, 1968 in Memphis right down to who gave the order and supplied the money, how the patsy was chosen, and who actually pulled the trigger.

Without this information, the truth about King’s assassination would have been buried and lost to history. Witnesses would have died off, taking their secrets with them, and the official lie that King was the victim of a racist lone gunman named James Earl Ray would have remained “fact.”

Instead, we know that Ray took the fall for a murder he did not commit. We know that a member of the Memphis Police Department fired the fatal shot and that two military sniper teams that were part of the 902nd Military Intelligence Group were sent to Memphis as back-ups should the primary shooter fail. We have access to the fascinating account of how Pepper came to meet Colonel John Downie, the man in charge of the military part of the plot and Lyndon Johnson’s former Vietnam briefer. We also learn that as part of the operation, photographs were actually taken of the shooting and that Pepper came very close to getting his hands on those photographs.

Unfortunately, the mainstream media has ignored all of these revelations and

Former Clinton email tech aide won’t testify at congressional hearing Tuesday

Former secretary of state Hillary Clinton testified before the House Select Committee on Benghazi in Washington on Oct. 22, 2015. (Melina Mara/The Washington Post)
By Spencer S. Hsu September 12 at 9:40 PM
Lawyers for a former State Department staffer who worked on Hillary Clinton’s private email system have notified a House committee that their client will not testify Tuesday morning, saying that he previously invoked his constitutional right against self-incrimination before another Republican-led panel of Congress.

Bryan Pagliano, who worked on Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign before setting up a server for Clinton in her New York home in 2009 during her tenure as secretary of state, last year invoked the Fifth Amendment and declined to answer questions by a House committee investigating the 2012 attacks on U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya.

Immunity is not a Guarantee Says Judicial Watch on DOJ’s Odd Deal With Hillary Email Deleter


     Monday, September 12, 2016 at 3:48pm

“Why would the DOJ give immunity to someone who arguably obstructed investigation?” asks Judicial Watch president, Tom Fitton, responding to reports that the Department of Justice granted immunity to the computer expert responsible for deleting Hillary’s emails.

The supposed immunity deal is as odd as the findings of the FBI investigation, and really, the whole email scandal.

The New York Times covered the matter fully (and it’s worth reading in its entirety), but the gist is as follows:

WASHINGTON — A computer specialist who deleted Hillary Clinton’s emails despite orders from Congress to preserve them was given immunity by the Justice Department during its investigation into her personal email account, according to a law enforcement official and others briefed on the investigation.

Republicans have called for the department to investigate the deletions, but the immunity deal with the specialist, Paul Combetta, makes it unlikely that the request will go far. Representative Jason Chaffetz of Utah, the top Republican on the House oversight committee, asked the

Beach town reels over chief's death after gun investigation

September 12, 2016 10:00:11 AM
BAY ST.

But the death of the city's well-respected police chief who shot himself in the chest after being suspended from duty has shaken many in the small Mississippi Gulf Coast community. 
The shooting -- in the police station's parking lot -- happened soon after police chief Mike DeNardo had learned authorities were investigating allegations he illegally sold city-owned firearms, including an assault rifle, a sheriff's deputy said.

Petition: make the FBI explain why they didn't bring criminal charges against bank execs

Last month, Senator Elizabeth Warren published an open letter to FBI director James Comey observing that, in revealing details of its investigation into the Clinton email scandal, the Bureau had seemingly abandoned its longstanding policy of not sharing its deliberations, meaning that there was no longer any reason to keep secret its reasoning for not bringing criminal charges against the bankers who did trillions of dollars' worth of damage to the world economy, sparking wars, starvation, and personal ruin for millions of people.

The Credo Action petition demands that the FBI do just that, and quickly, before the statute of limitations runs out.

If FBI Director Comey is willing to spend hours publicly detailing the ins and outs of an investigation, surely we should start with the failure to prosecute the bankers who crashed the economy, cost countless Americans their jobs and homes, and stole millions of dollars out of Americans’ pockets.

Stand with Sen. Warren: Tell the FBI Director and Justice Department to explain the failure to prosecute bankers.

The 10-year statute of limitations on many of these crimes runs out in 2017. We are running out of time to demand accountability. Bringing people to trial would not guarantee a guilty verdict or jail time. It would not bring back the jobs and homes lost. But prosecutions would send a clear message to Wall Street and help prevent the next financial crash. As Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission Chair Phil Angelides put it: “If you can steal $1,000 and settle for $20 would you do it again? Probably.”5

Who Was Frank Wilkinson And Why is the House Science Committee Talking About Him?

September 16, 2016 by Chip Gibbons

Dr. King, Frank Wilkinson, Carl Braden and Dr. James Dombrowski the night before Wilkinson and Braden entered jail

During the House Science Committee’s hearing on its Constitutional authority to issue subpoenas one name got bandied about quite a bit–Wilkinson.
The reference was to the 1961 Supreme Court case Frank Wilkinson v. United States, which still to this day defines the extent of Congress’s subpoena power. However, the Frank Wilkinson named in the suit happens to be our founder.
Little was said during the hearing about who Frank was or about the facts of the case, which was probably for the best since while it may be the law of the land the facts and circumstances of the case are not ones the committee and its supporters would want to cite in their favor.*
Frank had been an employee at the Los Angeles Housing Authority and was working on creating a very progressive, integrated public housing project in Chavez Ravine. Real estate developers didn’t like his project and the FBI was able to lend them a hand by giving them Frank’s FBI file. During an eminent domain hearing in which Frank was testifying as an expert witness, lawyers for developers, using Frank’s FBI file, began to ask him questions about his political affiliations.
When he refused to answer the questions he was disqualified as a witness, lost his job at the Los Angeles Housing Authority, and was subpoenaed by both the California Senate Committee on Un-American Activities and the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC). At each hearing, Frank refused to answer questions about his political affiliations stating that being compelled to do so violated his First Amendment rights. Many people who were called before HUAC invoked their Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination, which didn’t carry legal consequences, but did lead to being blacklisted, lost jobs, and getting expelled from civil society organizations. When individuals cited the First Amendment, however, they were frequently cited for contempt and jailed.
It was the second time Wilkinson was summoned before HUAC that brought him to the Supreme Court. By 1958, Wilkinson had become an anti-HUAC activist. When HUAC held hearings in Atlanta, Georgia–aimed at intimidating the civil rights movement–civil rights activists Carl and Anne Braden asked him to come to help organize against the hearing.When Frank arrived in Atlanta he discovered that he had now been subpoenaed, which was remarkable given that the hearing was ostensibly about Communist activities in the South and prior to this incident Frank had never been to the South. The Committee claimed they were subpoenaing Frank, because they had information that he had been sent to the South for “the purpose of developing a hostile sentiment to HUAC.”
All of the witnesses except for Frank and Carl pled the Fifth Amendment; Frank and Carl cited the First Amendment in their refusal to testify. As a result they were charged with and convicted of contempt. Both men appealed their conviction all the way to the Supreme Court where they lost. Ultimately, Frank and Carl would serve nine months in federal prison.
While Frank may have lost before the courts, he ultimately won the political battle. The movement he helped to build successfully led to the abolition of HUAC. HUAC would go onto live in ignominy, forever synonymous with political repression, while Life Magazine would chose to celebrate Frank’s commitment to civil liberties in its Bill of Rights bicentennial issue.
Throughout the House Science Committee’s inquisition against environmental groups we have frequently cited our own history and the story of Frank Wilkinson as part of our opposition to their antics. Today by resting their claim to legitimacy on Wilkinson, a case in which the Supreme Court approved of one the worst abuses of the HUAC era, our fears have been proved true.
We had urged the House Science Committee to learn the lesson of HUAC and Frank Wilkinson.
They did apparently.
Just the wrong lesson.
*Whether the House Science Committee actions were constitutional, even taking Wilkinson into account is a separate story. We maintain, as do many other leading First Amendment scholars and advocates, that the House Science Committee’s actions are unconstitution

James Comey Salary, Net Worth: FBI Director Benefits From Hillary Clinton Foundation?

: Sep 30, 2016
FBI Director James Comey has been under fire for his handling of the investigation of Hillary Clinton. Now a review of his professional history and relationships has raised concerns that he politicized the criminal probe against the Democratic nominee.

The review shows that the FBI Director is deeply entrenched in the cronyism culture of Washington D.C. which might have played a part in the FBI’s refusal to investigate Clinton.

Comey reportedly accepted millions of dollars from a Clinton Foundation defense contractor. He was also a former member of a Clinton Foundation corporate partner’s board.

According to Breitbrat, James Comey allegedly made over $6 million in one year alone while working for Lockheed Martin. The aerospace company then became a Clinton Foundation in 2010, the same year Comey left.

James Comey Made Millions From Clinton Foundation

Records later revealed that the company is a member of the American Chamber of Commerce in Egypt. The same organization later paid Bill Clinton $250,000 to deliver a speech in 2010.

Lockheed Martin seemed to benefit from the partnership not long after. The company reportedly won 17 approvals for private contracts. All of them from Hillary Clinton’s State Department that very same year.

The devil in Donald Trump

Saturday, October 1, 2016, 5:00 PM

As old-school as a Brooklyn-Queens real estate developer could be in post-World War II New York, family patriarch Fred Trump gave Donald Trump his start in life.

Lawyers Ready to Move Forward With Cases Against Saudi Arabia Over 9/11


   Sunday, October 2, 2016 at 1:30pm
Plaintiffs must convince the courts of Saudi Arabia’s involvement.

The Senate voted to override President Barack Obama’s veto of a bill that allows families of 9/11 victims to sue Saudi Arabia, which means lawyers have started to move ahead with cases already pending in court:

James Kreindler, whose New York firm represents hundreds of victims’ families, said attorneys would soon file papers at the Second U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York seeking to reinstate Saudi Arabia as a defendant in lawsuits filed shortly after the 2001 terrorist attacks and consolidated in the New York-based federal court.

“If we haven’t done it by today, we’ll do it Monday,” Mr. Kreindler said in an interview.

But what challenges do the plaintiffs face? The families and victims have sued across the country, but “consolidated into one suit in the Southern District of New York.” Lawyers have admitted that the 9,000 plaintiffs face an uphill battle:

“Although there is loose talk of 10 billion dollars’ worth of judgments against Saudi Arabia, in fact the deck remains stacked against the plaintiffs,” said Raj Bhala, a professor of international and comparative law at the University of Kansas Law School.

The plaintiffs must convince the court that Saudi Arabia had a hand in the terrorist attack that left almost 3,000 dead and tens of thousands injured. Unfortunately, the investigations and reports from the U.S. government have not shown direct involvement from the kingdom:

The 9/11 Commission found “no evidence that the Saudi government as an institution or senior Saudi officials individually funded” Al Qaeda. But the commission’s phrasing left some to speculate that there might be evidence of involvement by other, lower-ranking officials.

Some investigators have long believed that the various inquiries never unearthed the tru

Look at Freeh’s record

More than 15 years ago, an employee brought evidence of child sexual abuse to the attention of superiors. The most powerful people in the organization ignored the employee’s concerns, and also retaliated against the employee. They endangered other children by not interviewing the victim even though he might have had information about other victims.
Louis Freeh was FBI director when the law enforcement professional in question, Jane Turner, brought her concerns to him and other superiors. The incident involved the forcible rape of 9-year-old boy at the Turtle Mountain reservation in Minot, N.D. Other FBI personnel wrote off the boy’s injuries to an “auto accident” to avoid having to investigate a crime outside the FBI’s usual purview. A court later found that Turner’s superiors had retaliated against her, and awarded her damages.
Penn State’s trustees, including current Chair Ira Lubert, Vice Chair Mark Dambly and Homecoming Marshal Joel Myers, knew Freeh’s record when they hired him to investigate Penn State because Turner’s attorney at the National Whistleblowers Center informed them and President Rodney Erickson in writing in November 2011.
They nonetheless permitted Freeh to write a report that best described his own performance at the FBI rather than anything at Penn State, and then failed to review or challenge

Deputy involvrd in 'glaring' incident still on the force

The night of Dec. 8, 2012, a sheriff’s investigator invited a female grand jury witness to meet for a drink in Montvale, a small community between Roanoke and Bedford.

The woman wondered whether she might be in trouble. They parked her car shortly after midnight. The investigator, a member of a multijurisdictional drug task force, assured her she was in the clear.

He wanted sex. She told him no thanks.

She later told federal authorities that Bedford County Sheriff’s Deputy Christopher Lee Cook, 42, intoxicated on more than six beers, exposed himself during the encounter. He subsequently admitted the same to his superiors.

Authorities tried to keep Cook’s misconduct from being brought up in federal court when he testified against a man he investigated in a drug case. That backfired. The judge kicked the prosecutor off the case and the defendant went free, avoiding most of an 11-year prison term.

Cook was quietly suspended and demoted but kept his job. Unaware of his past, a group later named him Virginia’s school resource officer of the year.

The 19-year law enforcement veteran’s work history is documented at the Lynchburg federal courthouse in 91 pages of reports and memos that read like a made-for-TV police drama. An incident involving an extramarital affair cost him an earlier job with another agency.

The Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services, the state agency created to set and enforce standards for law enforcement, has taken no action against Cook. Sexual misconduct with witnesses, clients or patients can get doctors or lawyers sanctioned in Virgi

OCTOBER 21, 2016 11:33 AM
A boat captain was arrested at gunpoint. Now he’s suing the feds for false imprisonment.

Three years ago, Joshua and Sharyn Hakken, two college-educated engineers with a history of drug addiction and paranoid theories about the government, took their two young sons, boarded their sailboat and headed out of a Tampa marina.
They told the slip master before leaving on April, 3, 2013, they were taking the 25-foot vessel to Key West, and maybe to South America. What wasn’t known to the slip owner was that the Hakkens had just lost custody of the children and kidnapped them from their grandmother’s house the day before. The State Attorney’s Office in Hillsborough County issued a warrant for their arrest.
When it was discovered they fled on their boat, the FBI got involved in the manhunt.
Three days later in Key West, charter boat captain Tim Curtis took his wife and their young daughter out on the water in their sailboat for an afternoon swim. He anchored his 34-foot vessel right outside the Stock Island Marina, swam with his family and returned to the marina.
As the family was leaving the marina in their car, they were approached by “at least four men armed with machine guns,” according to documents filed in federal court this week.

“These men, with their guns pointed at Tim, forced Tim out of his car and forced him to lay flat on the ground with their guns pointed at his head. During this time, one of the men told Tim that if he (Tim) moved, that they would shoot him,” Curtis’ lawyer Andrew Moss wrote in a complaint against the federal government filed Oct. 18 in the U.S. Southern District Court.
The men, it turned out, were officers with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission helping an FBI agent who was in Key West looking for the Hakkens. They cuffed Curtis and held him for questioning before determining he was not Joshua Hakken.
Curtis is suing the government on civil charges of battery, inflicting emotional distress and false imprisonment on behalf of himself, his wife and his daughter.
He declined to comment on the case. Moss said the government did offer Curtis money but it was “a pittance” compared to what he was put through. Moss did not specify how much his client is seeking. He has requested a jury trial. FBI spokesman Christopher M. Allen said he could not comment on “matters pending litigation.”

Moss said that had the FBI done proper surveillance, the agent and FWC officers would have no reason to mistake Curtis for Joshua Hakken. Curtis was 47 at the time and had long hair. Joshua Hakken was 35 and wore his hair short. The men’s wives also did not look similar to one another, Moss wrote in the complaint.
But most importantly, authorities were looking for a couple with two boys — ages 2 and 4. The Curtis’ daughter was 7, had long hair and was wearing a girls swimsuit when

Patty Hearst, Double Agents and the Symbionese Liberation Army
He claimed to have been an undercover agent for the FBI, a fact verified by FBI director Clarence Kelley. Surfacing at a press conference in Los Angeles, Lewis ...

Jeffrey Toobin’s new book, “American Heiress,” presents a mean-spirited approach to the kidnapping of Patty Hearst by the Symbionese Liberation Army in 1974, but he’s clueless about the significance of the SLA, for which she was forced to rob a bank. I covered her trial for the weekly underground paper, the Berkley Barb.

At the end of a tape by Hearst, Donald “Cinque” DeFreeze, the SLA’s black leader of a white group, came on with a triple death threat, especially to Colston Westbrook, whom he accused of being “a government agent now working for military intelligence while giving assistance to the FBI.” This communiqué was sent to San Francisco radio station KSAN. News director David McQueen checked with a Justice Department source, who confirmed Westbrook’s employment by the CIA.

Conspiracy researcher Mae Brussell traced Westbrook’s activities from 1962, when he was a CIA advisor to the South Korean CIA, through 1969, when he provided logistical support in Vietnam for the CIA’s Phoenix program. His job was the indoctrination of assassination and terrorist cadres. After seven years in Asia, he was brought home in 1970 and assigned to run the Black Cultural Association at Vacaville Prison, where he became the control officer for DeFreeze, who had worked as a police informer from 1967 to 1969 for the LAPD’s Public Disorder Intelligence Unit.

If DeFreeze was a double agent, then the SLA was a Frankenstein monster, turning against its creator by becoming in reality what had been orchestrated only as a media image. When he snitched on his keepers, he signed the death warrant of the SLA. They were burned alive in a Los Angeles safe house during a shootout with police. When Cinque’s charred remains were sent to his family in Cleveland, they couldn’t help but notice that he had been decapitated. It was as if the CIA had said, literally, “Bring me the head of Donald DeFreeze!”

Consider the revelations of Wayne Lewis in August 1975. He claimed to have been an undercover agent for the FBI, a fact verified by FBI director Clarence Kelley. Surfacing at a press conference in Los Angeles, Lewis spewed forth a veritable conveyor belt of conspiracy charges: that DeFreeze was an FBI informer; that he was killed not by the SWAT team but by an FBI agent because he had become “uncontrollable”; that the FBI then wanted Lewis to infiltrate the SLA; that the FBI had undercover agents in other underground guerrilla groups; that the FBI knew where Patty Hearst was but let her remain free so it could build up its files of potential subversives.

In February 1976, while Hearst’s trial was still in process, a similar charge was made when a Berkeley underground group, Tribal Thumb, prepared this statement:

Donald DeFreeze escaped from the California prison system with help from the FBI and California prison officials. His mission was to establish an armed revolutionary organization, controlled by the FBI, specifically to either make contact with or undermine the surfacing and development of the August Seventh Guerrilla Movement…DeFreeze was let loose and given a safe plan to surface as an armed guerrilla unit. That plan was to kidnap Patty Hearst.

One warm afternoon I was surprised to receive a letter by registered mail on Department of Justice stationery.

Dear Mr. Krassner:

Subsequent to the search of a residence in connection with the arrest of six members of the Emiliano Zapata Unit, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, San Francisco, has been attempting to contact you to advise you of the following information:

During the above indicated arrest of six individuals of the Emiliano Zapata Unit, an untitled list of names and addresses of individuals was seized. A corroborative source described the above list as an Emiliano Zapata Unit “hit list,” but stated that no action will be taken, since all of those who could carry it out are in custody.

Further, if any of the apprehended individuals should make bail, they would only act upon the “hit list” at the instructions of their leader, who is not and will not be in a position to give such instructions.

The above information is furnished for your personal use and it is requested it be kept confidential. At your discretion, you may desire to contact the local police department responsible for the area of your residence.

Do Not Resist: How America's Police Are becoming an Occupying Military Force
Gar Smith
Friday October 21, 2016 - 12:58:00 PM

Opens October 21 at the Elmwood in Berkeley

Filmmaker Craig Atkinson's dad was a Detroit-area cop for 29 years and a member of his town's first SWAT team in 1989. Both the filmmaker and his retired father are troubled by the direction policing has taken in the US over the post-9/11 years and Do Not Resist—a visceral, unnarrated 73-minute documentary—presents a powerful warning about the perils and growing presence of an American Police State.

Director/cinematographer/editor Atkinson's pro-police background enabled him to gain uncommon entrée into the world of policing—hanging out with cops, attending their conferences and training sessions, even squeezing his camera inside urban tanks crowded with automatic weapons and combat-ready enforcers heading to suburban drug raids.

The 1878 Posse Comitatus Act prohibits the federal government from using military personnel to enforce domestic laws. In the 1960's, however, when UC Berkeley was besieged by bayonet-wielding soldiers, we saw how the National Guard could be deployed to avoid this law. In the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, the Pentagon and the War Lobby found a new

Matt Damon explains why he made this surprising new film
By Valerie Strauss October 28 at 12:50 P

[Why the movement to privatize public education is a very bad idea]

The description also notes that the term “backpack full of cash” refers to the belief by corporate reformers that every child should be allowed to take their share of public education dollars — their “backpack full of cash” — to any school they want, charter, religious, online or public. (The problems with such a system are many: Public money shouldn’t be used for religious purposes; traditional school systems, which educate the vast majority of students, need dependable budgets to properly operate; and the public has little or no oversight over private, religious and charter schools.) The title could equally refer to the billions of dollars that private philanthropists have spent in recent years to privatize the public education system through pet projects that have no research to back up their effectiveness.

“Backpack” was directed and co-produced by Sarah Mondale, president and co-director of Stone Lantern who is also a public school teacher in New York. She directed and co-produced the 2001 four-part series titled “School” — and she was nominated for an Emmy for her direction of “Asylum: A History of the Mental Institutions in America.” The film makers are seeking funding via a Kickstarter campaign to complete final work on the film and distribute and promote it.

Keep Reading
The film makers got Damon, who has been vocal about the importance of public education for years, to narrate it. In an email, Damon explained why he agreed:

“I got involved in the making of ‘Backpack Full of Cash’ because it tells the important story of how current education reform policies are increasing inequality and causing harm to our most vulnerable children.

The expansion of charter schools is draining funds from our public schools and benefiting some children while leaving others behind with fewer resources. We need a public school system that gives every child an equal chance to a great education.

I had that chance in the public schools I attended and I want to see it given — fairly and on an even playing field — to every child in our nation.

“Backpack Full of Cash” helps us realize that true education equity will come when we address the deeper issues underlying education inequality such as child poverty, racial segregation, and the unequal funding of our schools.”

Supporters of the  privatization of public education say that outsourcing school management and running public schools like businesses is more efficient than allowing government to do the job. Critics say civic institutions can’t be properly run like businesses in part because children aren’t widgets.

According to Samuel E. Abrams, director of the National Center for the Study of Privatization in Education at Columbia University’s Teachers College, whose recent book, “Education and the Commercial Mindset,” details how and why market forces have become important in corporate school reform:

… where there is insufficient transparency for proper contract enforcement, the free market fails. Laissez-faire enthusiasts neglected to differentiate discrete (that is, easily measurable) from complex services. In the case of schooling, which is a classic complex service, the direct consumer is a child, who is in little position to judge whether classes are being properly taught. The parent, taxpayer and legislator are at a necessary distance. And standardized testing as a check on quality is rife with problems. It isn’t merely that teachers and principals under tremendous pressure to raise test scores can correct wrong answers on bubble sheets, as documented in Atlanta most notably, but they can also give students more time to complete tests and lend help in the process. More fundamentally, heavy reliance on standardized testing leads to teaching to the test, which means crowding out instruction in subjects that aren’t tested, particularly art, music, crafts and play, which are fundamental to a well-rounded education.

Damon’s involvement is the latest in a string of education-related activities. In March 2011, he said during a television interview that President Obama’s standardized test-based school reform policies had disappointed him. Two months later, Obama took a shot at Damon in a comic address to the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner, saying:

“I’ve even let down my key core constituency: movie stars. Just the other day, Matt Damon — I love Matt Damon, love the guy — Matt Damon said he was disappointed in my performance. Well, Matt, I just saw ‘The Adjustment Bureau’ so . . . right back atcha, buddy.”

Then in July of the same year, Damon came to Washington and delivered a speech at the Save Our Schools rally where teachers, parents and others protested the Obama administration’s standardized test-based school reform policies. Damon came at the request of his mother, Nancy Carlsson-Paige, a well-known child development expert and professor emeritus at Lesley University in Cambridge, Mass., who was involved with the rally.

The administration at the time was concerned enough about his speech to attempt to arrange a meeting, with then-Education Secretary Arne Duncan offering to meet Damon at the airport and talk to him on the drive into the city, according to sources at the time. Damon refused.

In 2014, Damon had an online conversation with fans on Reddit and among the subjects he discussed was his opposition to standardized test-based school reform and the exclusion of teachers from the shaping of education policy.

And now, he has narrated “Backpack Full of Cash.”

How the Federal Government Is Using the US's Concern With Bullying as an Excuse to Spy on Teens
Friday, 28 October 2016 00:00

The Obama administration is instructing the multiple federal agencies behind the national Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) program to "find opportunities" to integrate into bullying prevention networks at the local level, according to a strategic plan released by the White House last week. The move could open the door for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Department of Justice (DOJ) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to apply a counter-terror mentality to youth wellness and safety, in a national environment where law enforcement already plays an outsized role in the education system.
The new guidelines are already raising concerns among civil rights advocates, who say that a federal counter-terror program has no place in school discipline -- and will only put children at greater risk of being funneled into the prison system or suffering mistreatment themselves.
The CVE program has been dogged by civil rights concerns since it was launched five years ago to "address ideologically inspired violent extremism in the Homeland." The three pilot programs rolled out under CVE in 2015 exclusively targeted Muslim-American communities, prompting charges of ethnic and religious profiling. Scholars, meanwhile, warn that the very premise underlying CVE -- that violent extremists can be profiled, identified and stopped before they commit an act of terror -- has been challenged by a strong academic consensus, which finds that there is no single pathway to "terrorism."
The latest version of the plan doubles down on the most widely-opposed aspects of the CVE program, including "local intervention teams" via which health practitioners, faith-based leaders and educators will collaborate with law enforcement.
But one line, in particular, caught civil rights campaigners by surprise. The document states that the CVE Task Force, comprised of th

Lou Dobbs’ Rant About ‘Mormon Mafia’ Becomes Twitter’s Best New Hashtag
Don’t mess with Mormons.

10/27/2016 01:58 am ET |
Fox Business host Lou Dobbs recently fired off an angry tweet about Evan McMullin, the third-party conservative running neck-and-neck with GOP nominee Donald Trump in Utah. 

McMullin’s strong showing is threatening to hand the state to Democrat Hillary Clinton, or he could win the state’s six electoral votes himself ― a notion that has Trump supporters such as Dobbs steamed enough to blame a “Mormon Mafia.”

Although the tweet was published over the weekend, it was widely retweeted late Wednesday and led to the birth of a new hashtag: #MormonMafia. 

Here’s a sampling:

Comey Praises Brave F.B.I. Agents Who Had to Touch Anthony Weiner’s Computer —Borowitz

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—James Comey, the embattled director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, presided over a special ceremony on Friday evening to commend the brave F.B.I. agents who had to touch Anthony Weiner’s computer.

In awarding the commendations to the agents, whom Comey called “the bravest men and women this country has to offer,” the F.B.I. director criticized the political uproar that he said had overshadowed “their selfless acts of heroism.”

“These agents have performed far and beyond the call of duty,” a visibly angry Comey said. “I know we’re eleven days away from an election and tensions are running high, but we shouldn’t let that subtract in any way from what these brave agents did with their own hands.”

“Who among us could look at ourselves in the mirror and say, ‘I have what it takes to touch Anthony Weiner’s computer’?” Comey asked. “I know I sure as hell couldn’t.”

Harland Dorrinson, one of the agents who received the official commendation, acknowledged that touching Weiner’s computer was “the toughest mission I’ve been on” since signing up with the F.B.I. “I spent two weeks undercover in El Chapo’s drug cartel, and this was much scarier,” he said.

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – The supervisor of the Harrisburg Bureau of Police’s vice unit is facing federal charges. He’s accused of stealing money during undercover sting operations.

Sources say there are accusations Cpl. Sean Cornick was shaking down drug dealers. Now, he could face years in prison.

“Number one, it does send a message to other police officers that they’re not above the law, that they have to abide by the laws they’re asked to enforce,” national civil rights lawyer Devon M. Jacob said.

This type of arrest also builds confidence in police, said Jacob, whose law practice is based in Mechanicsburg.

The red flags in this case, he said, set off the right alarm bells.

“It’s when the alarm systems aren’t in place that there’s a problem,” he said, “and unfortunately there are a lot of departments that don’t have the proper checks and balances in place.”

It looks like they’re in place here, Jacob said.

Police arrested the 19-year Harrisburg police veteran on federal theft charges. Investigators say the vice unit supervisor was caught on camera stealing money from a police evidence locker.
