DWS missing a lot of votes at end of 2017 for some odd reason? Debbie Wasserman Democrat Rep for the Miami District of Florida has missed 545 votes in total, but it looks to be like 30 percent of these missed votes in the US House by Debbie Wasserman Schultz have all come in the time frame of October 2017 to December 2017. So this begs the question where is DWS all of a sudden, is she locked up, has she ran away, or in some kind of custody. This is very telling, because she has missed votes before, but 1/3 of the DWS missed US Congress votes have come in the time frame of October 2017-December 2017. She hasn’t really been in the news as of lately, and has been one of those DC elitist who haven’t made a public appearance in a while either.
If this doesn’t show you how crooked the federal judicial system is, nothing will.
Ammon Bundy’s attorney in the Oregon Malheur Wildlife Refuge case, Marcus Mumford, had criminal charges filed against him after he was tased and tackled by federal marshalls for simply arguing for his client’s release in court.
Listen to his account of what happened.
Judge Anna Brown said that Mumford was issuing a threat, and that is why he was charged.
Back in April 2017, The Oregonian reported:
Attorney Marcus Mumford, who last month had criminal charges dismissed against him stemming from his arrest on the day his client Ammon Bundy was acquitted of conspiracy in federal court in Portland, now faces more legal challenges.
Oregon’s Chief U.S. District Judge Michael W. Mosman is seeking to revoke Mumford’s ability to practice law in any federal court in the District of Oregon, a rare move.
In a court filing Wednesday, Mosman cited Mumford’s repeated failures or refusals to observe court rulings in the Bundy trial last fall, repeated instances of Mumford arguing with the judge with a raised voice and sometimes in the jury’s presence, inappropriate commentary on a witness in the presence of a jury, his arguing for Bundy’s release from trial after his acquittal “without a good-faith basis to believe that the pre-existing custody order” from Nevada was not still in effect and his yelling at the court when he objected to the trial judge’s rulings.
Mosman also alleged that Mumford failed to timely disclose to the trial judge that Rick Koerber, who served as part of Bundy’s defense team, was also a client of Mumford’s in an unrelated, criminal proceeding. In 2014, a federal judge in Utah tossed out 18 charges against Koerber that had alleged he operated a giant Ponzi scheme through his real estate company, but Koerber was recently re-indicted on 18 charges in January.
The judge filed 25 exhibits with his order, mostly transcripts from Bundy’s trial to support his move to revoke Mumford’s admission to practice in federal court in Oregon.
For Mumford’s part, he simply responded in an email, “My initial reaction is ‘the Empire strikes back.’ I know of no court order that I violated, and no reason to impose some kind of lifetime ban to practice law in Oregon.”
Mumford then filed an 11-page memo in which he wrote about the challenges against the court he raised during the trial.
“In these matters, I do not necessarily intend to argue in each instance that I was right and the court was wrong,” Mumford wrote. “As Judge Brown pointed out, there were several instances over the course of the trial where we likely just misunderstood each other.”
“There should be no mistake that I think the Court is gravely mistaken to even issue its (order to show cause),” Mumford added. “Nevertheless, I take this matter seriously.”
However, NextRush Free reports, “Judge [John C.] Coughenour agreed to a request by federal prosecutors to drop the criminal charges after Mumford’s lawyer asked for communications between the marshals. Mumford’s legal assistant and other defense lawyers said the federal marshals in the courtroom were antagonistic towards him.”
As of today, Nextrush Free reported, “In a series of rulings Judge Coughenour has ruled against Mumford including this latest request for a delay citing a new lawyer representing him and the presence of witnesses in Nevada this Monday January 8th (in connection with the Bunkerville Standoff case). Marcus Mumford also brought up personal and financial issues in his filing with the judge.”
Mumford’s hearing is scheduled Monday morning January 8th at 10am.
Now, contrast that with Bundy Ranch Standoff prosecutor Steven Myhre.
Myhre engaged, and has a history of engaging, in multiple Brady violations to rig the case in his favor, which could have led to wrong convictions in the first trial, intimidation that led to plea bargains in the first two trials and definitely led to a mistrial in the last one.
And what happened to Mr. Myhre?
Well, first, he was not arrested and charged with a crime, which he should have been.
Second, he was then allowed to actually file to retry the Bundys and Ryan Payne after his “willful” violation of federal law and the rights of the defendants.
Third, following a look into the matter by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Myhre was not fired and brought up on charges. He was simply demoted and another man took his place.
Does anyone see the glaring injustice here?
One attorney merely argues for his client’s release which is not criminal and another attorney willfully violates federal law.
One had charges against him but were dropped when his accusers were called on it. The other has had no charges against him.
One is facing disbarment. The other continues to have a job in Nevada where he can continue to violate the law and the rights of the citizens.
This is not equal protection under the law, friends, nor is it justice.
This is how tyranny works.
By Anna Von Reitz
It is my understanding that the bad behavior of the FBI and BLM in this matter has finally caught up to them and that the Bundys’ and all those who have likewise been falsely accused and prosecuted and persecuted will now be set free and the record established as a finding in their favor “with prejudice”—-preventing the vermin responsible for this travesty from ever coming back and bringing forward any more complaints.
A federal judge ruled Monday that the federal government may not retry Cliven Bundy and his sons after rebuking prosecutors for withholding evidence during their felony trial stemming from an armed standoff four years ago.
U.S. District Court Judge Gloria Navarro declared a mistrial in the case last month, saying federal prosecutors willfully withheld evidence that lawyers for the Bundys and alleged co-conspirator Ryan Payne should have had access to while mounting their defense.
She said the attorneys were in violation of the Brady rule, which requires prosecutors to disclose evidence that could be favorable to a defendant, and told them it wasn’t possible to proceed with the case.
On Monday, she dismissed the case “with prejudice,” meaning the government cannot retry the defendants. “The court finds that the universal sense of justice has been violated,” Navarro said.

~@ WHAT is going on at Guantánamo Bay?
Behind the scenes, the U.S. military is planning for nearly a half-billion dollars in new construction during the Trump administration, including a Navy request to build a $250 million, five-bed hospital here that has been singled out for study by a Senate committee.
Despite President Donald Trump’s campaign promise to reduce costs at the remote U.S. Navy base — at one point he mused that his new Cuba policy might import cheap, local labor from across the minefield — the Pentagon’s appetite to spend at this outpost of about 5,500 residents and 41 wartime prisoners continues unsated.
In two other major projects, Congress is poised to give the Army $124 million to build a new barracks for 848 prison troops to be ready in four years. And on a different corner of the base, the Pentagon is soliciting bids of up to $100 million to build a skeletal structure for a 13,000-migrant tent city and housing for 5,000 U.S. forces.
But it was the hospital plan that prompted the Republican-led Senate Armed Services Committee to ask Defense Secretary James Mattis to conduct an analysis of “remote locations with high family support costs” — noting the “proposed $250 million replacement hospital at Guantánamo Bay would cost $50 million per bed.”
The Senate tasked Mattis to undertake a “comprehensive study” that essentially asks the Pentagon to take a hard look at the costs of bringing families to distant, remote places like Guantánamo Bay and Kwajalein in the South Pacific. The Pentagon proposes to build 52 family homes at a cost of $1.3 million each on the atoll in the Marshall Islands. The Senate, however, called small post, so-called unaccompanied tours costly, “which is a primary reason why locations such as Diego Garcia are unaccompanied.”
It cited as an example, the “significantly higher” costs of “school construction.” At Guantánamo a Miami-based Cuban-American construction firm is building a new pre-K through grade 12 school for up to 275 students with imported labor, materials and equipment for $66 million.
It’s all part of the mix-and-match nature of life on the 45-square-mile base. Sailors who come on long-term tours of duty bring their families and move into suburban-style tract housing while the prison personnel who come for about nine months are housed in townhouses and containerized housing units (CHUs) for which the Army pays rent to the Navy. The base’s workforce of about 2,200 Jamaicans and Filipinos lives in old barracks and separate trailer camps.
The Defense Health Agency said in a statement that it wants to replace the many times renovated, current 12-bed hospital with one that can better withstand earthquake tremors rattling the region. “The facility has a significant risk of collapse in a major seismic event due to the lack of seismic design features,” the statement said.
It was built in 1956 and needs upgrades to continue “providing comprehensive, ambulatory and specified specialty care services” to 3,200 of the 5,500 or so people on base who are covered by TriCare, the Pentagon’s health system. Troops in need of specialized care are flown to the United States.
Jamaican and Filipino guest workers are entitled to emergency services but are not explicitly entitled to Navy healthcare. An example: A base Subway restaurant worker who was discovered to have an active tuberculosis case was quarantined there.
Hospital staff also sometimes provides care to the 41 war-on-terror prisoners and the Detention Center’s 1,500 troops, who have their own clinic. A new $8.4 million clinic for the captives is under construction, as is a new $12.4 million dining room for prison staff.
The proposed $124 million barracks would consolidate enlisted troops into one or two large dormitory-style buildings near the base church and McDonald’s, far from the Detention Center Zone where the prisoners are kept. Trump’s chief of staff, former Marine Gen. John Kelly, had championed the replacement for the CHUs when he was in charge of the U.S. Southern Command. But the Obama administration repeatedly rejected the idea as an unnecessary investment in dwindling detention operations it sought to close.
Now the Department of Defense under Trump has blessed the request and committees in both chambers of Congress have supported it. A document obtained by the Miami Herald shows the barracks would be ready in 2021, the War on Terror Detention Center’s 20th year, if Congress funds it soon.
The proposed up-to $100 million migrant camp project is a bit mysterious.
In 2007, the Bush administration invested $17 million in preparing empty fields on the leeward side of the base, not far from Guantánamo’s lone functioning airfield, for a series of pop-up tent cities capable of housing 30,000 migrants. A northern Florida contractor, Islands Mechanical, leveled fields, built cement-block bathhouses and set up sewage treatment capacity. The Navy spent another $6 million on a firm to scavenge the area for unexploded ordinance at abandoned firing ranges nearby.
Now the Navy is soliciting bids for work on the same site to include demolition of certain structures, addition of concrete slabs for field kitchens, dumpsters and a new headquarters building. A public-address system atop utility poles is also to be added for a population of up to 13,000 migrants and a potential staff of 5,000 U.S. forces. The migrants, according to design plans released with the $25 million to $100 million project solicitation, are to be housed in five pop-up tent cities and a 900-person medical unit.
Southcom spokesman Army Maj. Vance Trenkel said the site would be accessible to people with disabilities and have a “minimum life of 50 years.” The Navy said it was handling the bid process for Southcom but could not explain why, if Congress appropriated $33 million for the project in its 2017 budget, the solicitation exceeded funding by $67 million.
Moreover, spokesmen for the Navy, Southcom and the Department of Homeland Security were unable to say why the military had concluded it needed to bring in and house 5,000 U.S. forces and other staff at the base to run an encampment housing 13,000 people. A surge of that size would more than triple the population on base.
The Army holds regular training exercises there, spending millions of dollars to rehearse a mock migration crisis. This year, it flew in 400 troops plus Homeland Security and Department of State officials, and housed them around the base for the drill, which was closed to press coverage.
At DHS, spokesman David Lapan said by email that the department’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement division “was not directly involved in this contract.” ICE he said, “does not have any plans to use this facility for any new/additional detention.”
Separately, the Pentagon announced on Aug. 21 that it had signed a contract with a Texas firm, Xtera Inc., to build a $43 million Guantánamo-Puerto Rico fiber-optic link to complement its link from Florida. The first leg was funded at $40 million.
Editor’s note: This story was updated with the last paragraph noting the awarding of the fiber-optic contract.
~@ As usual, TONS of questions – waiting for answers! If you are curious too, follow links on some of the info available so far….
The definition of military arrest is very straightforward. As the phrase suggests, this simply refers to being detained or arrested by a member of the armed forces. The United States has long been wary of giving domestic powers of arrest of citizens to the military and has chosen to leave domestic arrests in the hands of non-military law enforcement agencies such as local and state police departments or federal groups such as the FBI or the Drug Enforcement Agency.
Members of the armed forces, whether on American soil or abroad, are subject to military laws, which are enforced by military police and tried by courts martial. An enlisted soldier who violates a military law by being insubordinate to a superior officer, for example, may be subject to arrest by members of the military police. Similarly, crimes committed by soldiers on a military base would be enforced by military police and result in a military arrest.
Another form of military arrest involves the capture and detention of enemies of the United States on foreign soil. Recent examples would be suspected militants or terrorists captured in Iraq or Afghanistan. The United States and the international legal system have special rules on the detention and treatment of enemy soldiers or combatants captured abroad. This has led to controversy for the United States in recent years with respect to detention centers such as Abu Ghraib prison and Guantanamo Bay.
Because of a fear of an overly powerful military, the United States has long been wary of giving the military the power to arrest civilians domestically. In 1878, in the aftermath of Civil War Reconstruction, the federal government passed the Posse Comitatus Act, which generally forbids federal military personnel–including members of the National Guard acting under federal authority–from engaging in activities typically undertaken by law enforcement agencies, such as arrests.
The Posse Comitatus Act has several exceptions. For example, Coast Guard units under the authority of a state governor may act in a law enforcement capacity. Additionally, an exception exists for military personal engaged in support roles for the Joint Special Operations Command. Another exception concerns nuclear weapons or materials. The attorney general may request military personnel to supplement civilian law enforcement to respond to certain nuclear threats. Perhaps the most familiar use of the military in a law enforcement capacity is the Insurrection Act, under which the president may order the military to engage in law enforcement activities during certain emergencies.
The Insurrection Act was passed in 1807 with the express purpose of allowing the president to use the military to suppress domestic violence, insurrection and rebellion. Actions undertaken pursuant to the Insurrection Act are exempt from the Posse Comitatus Act. In 2007, the act was amended to add natural disasters and terrorism to the list of situations in which the president may use the military for law enforcement purposes; however, those changes were later repealed and the Insurrection Act has reverted to its 1807 form.
ALMOST 10,000 Sealed Indictments?? and who are they for?? Why so secret?
~@ If you read the article on ‘Military Arrests’ it outlines the presidents power in under certain circumstances… which may be tied to the recent Executive order to ‘freeze property and assets of those involved in human rights abuse and corruption, a Declaration of National Emergency and also a vow to ‘free 25 Million Human Slaves’ in 2018 (that is a very tall order)… Only time will tell…
McCarran Act (or Internal Security Act of 1950) that allows for the detention of dangerous, disloyal, or subversive persons in times of war or “internal security emergency”
It is five years since the Dec. 14, 2012 shooting massacre of 20 children and 6 adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.
Wolfgang Halbig, a former Florida state trooper and school safety consultant, is one of many Sandy Hook “truthers” who
On New Year’s Eve, Dec. 31, 2017, Fellowship of the Minds received an email from Mr. Halbig, with the startling claim that the 20 Sandy Hook child victims are alive and well. His words:
TRULY THANK FACEBOOK IN HELPING ME FIND THE SANDY HOOK CHILDREN THAT ARE STILL ALIVE AS YOU CAN SEE
To support that claim, Halbig included this composite image (see below) of the 20 victims as 6-year-olds and as they presumably are today.
↓Click image to enlarge↓
Three things about the above image:
Halbig would not give the source(s) of the pics of the child-victims-as-adults. In an email to me, Professor James Fetzer said:
“I think the photo of seven girls [Avielle Richman, Grace McDonnell, Olivia Engel, Madeleine Hsu, Charlotte Bacon, Caroline Previdi, Allison Wyatt] is right. Wolf[gang] talked about it on [John B. Wells’ internet radio show] Caravan to Midnight and said that he had had it vetted by an expert who works w/ FBI.”
Since Halbig said in his email that Facebook had helped him find the child “victims” as adults, I searched for each of their names on Facebook. This is what I found:
(1) Olivia Engel: The only Olivia Engel on Facebook says she is the owner of Olivia Engel Jewelry Designs (she makes necklaces) and lives in West Hartford, CT. Here’s a screenshot of her Facebook page, in the event she deletes the account or takes it to private.
Below is the composite I made of Sandy Hook Olivia Engel (#1), Halbig’s Olivia Engel (#2), and Facebook Olivia Engel (#3). Note the striking resemblance: same eyebrows, same nose, same labial folds when she smiles, same chin.
(2) Allison Wyatt: I found an Allison Wyatt whose adult image (#3) resembles the Sandy Hook Allison Wyatt (#1) and Halbig’s Allison Wyatt (#2) — same eyebrows, same face shape, same blonde hair color. However, one must be “befriend” Facebook Allison Wyatt for information on biographical details.
(3) Emilie Parker: Out of several Emilie Parkers on Facebook, there is one “Emily Parker” (#3) who most resembles Sandy Hook Emilie Parker (#1) and Halbig’s Emilie Parker (#2) — same blonde hair, same nose, same fondness for the color pink. There is no biographical information other than “Community Organization”.
(4) Jesse Lewis: Out of the Jesse Lewises on Facebook, this Jesse Lewis (#3) — who is a HVAC Tech (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning Technician) at Tri State Enterprise (a contractor in Flatwoods, Kentucky) and lives in Argillite, Kentucky — most resembles the Halbig Jesse Lewis (#2).
Of the above four (Olivia Engel, Allison Wyatt, Emilie/Emily Parker, Jesse Lewis), the strongest resemblance is among the child, adolescent and young adult versions of Olivia Engel.
To make the case that the Sandy Hook child victims are still alive, all that is needed is just one case. If, say, Olivia Engel is alive and well and living in Hartford, Connecticut, then it means the other 19 child victims also did not die at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14, 2012.
Lastly, here’s something rather bizarre.
I found the Facebook page of the Nancy Lanza: https://www.facebook.com/nancy.lanza.79.
There is very little on Nancy Lanza’s Facebook. Her last post (see below) was an update of her profile picture on March 5, 2013 — 2 months 19 days after she had been shot to death by her son, Adam.

The Trump Administration quietly issued an Executive Order (EO) last Thursday which allows for the freezing of US-housed assets belonging to foreign individuals or entities deemed “serious human rights abusers,” along with government officials andexecutives of foreign corporations (current or former) found to have engaged in corruption – which includes the misappropriation of state assets, the expropriation of private assets for personal gain, and corruption related to government contracts or the extraction of natural resources.
Furthermore, anyone in the United States who aids or participates in said corruption or human rights abuses by foreign parties is subject to frozen assets – along with any U.S. corporation who employs foreigners deemed to have engaged in corruption on behalf of the company.
In fact, anyone in the world who has “materially assisted, sponsored, or provided financial, material or technological support for, or goods or services” to foreigners targeted by the Executive Order is subject to frozen assets.
The EO, based on the 2016 Global Human Rights Accountability Act, immediately added 13 foreign individuals to a list of “Specially Designated Nationals” (SDN) maintained by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) – several of whom have ties to the Clintons, the Clinton Foundation, or Clinton associates (details below). Moreover, the Treasury Department sanctioned an additional 39 people, for a total of 52 under the new order – including the son of Russia’s prosecutor general.
The Order reads:
I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, find that the prevalence and severity of human rights abuse and corruption that have their source, in whole or in substantial part, outside the United States, such as those committed or directed by persons listed in the Annex to this order, have reached such scope and gravity that they threaten the stability of international political and economic systems.
Last Week’s Executive Order could have serious implications for D.C. lobbyists who provide “goods and services” (e.g. lobbying services) to despots, corrupt foreign politicians or foreign organizations engaging in the crimes described in the EO. “Virtually every lobbyist in DC has got to be in a cold sweat over the scope of this EO,” said an attorney consulted in the matter who wishes to remain anonymous.
And because the phrase “person” means “an individual or entity” in the order – any US organization which merely employs a foreigner engaging in the listed offenses is also subject to frozen assets. “Consider, what would happen if Apple, say employed a foreign national who bribed a PRC official for government approvals? How about a hypothetical case of a company like Northrop or Boeing where an employee, or consultant, who is a foreign national bribes a Saudi official to direct government purchases of airplanes and military equipment? At least some or all of their assets could be frozen.”
Now consider that if reports from The Hill are accurate – an FBI mole deep within the Russian uranium industry uncovered evidence that “Russian nuclear officials had routed millions of dollars to the U.S. designed to benefit former President Bill Clinton’s charitable foundation during the time Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on a government body that provided a favorable decision to Moscow (the Uranium One approval)” – a deal which would eventually grant the Kremlin control over 20 percent of America’s uranium supply right around the time Bill Clinton also collected $500,000 for a Moscow speech, as detailed by author Peter Schweitzer’s book Clinton Cash and the New York Times in 2015.
“The Russians were compromising American contractors in the nuclear industry with kickbacks and extortion threats, all of which raised legitimate national security concerns. And none of that evidence got aired before the Obama administration made those decisions,” a person who worked on the case told The Hill, speaking on condition of anonymity for fear of retribution by U.S. or Russian officials. –The Hill
The same FBI informant claims to have video evidence showing Russian agents with briefcases full of bribe money related to the controversial Uranium One deal:
Hypothetically, if the Uranium One deal is deemed corrupt by the Trump administration, and “Russian nuclear officials” indeed routed millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation, and Tony Podesta lobbied on behalf of the deal for the Clinton Foundation – it stands to reason that this Executive Order could freeze the US-housed assets of quite a few individuals. Of note, assets can be frozen with no prior warning, as trump has declared a national emergency due to the “scope and gravity” of the threat posed by said individuals.
To simplify this complicated legal document a bit, keep in mind:
Section 1. (a)(i-ii) outlines all foreigners the Executive Order applies to:
Section 1. (a)(iii) defines U.S. Citizens who have assisted foreigners in any of the crimes described above:
Note: The above section (iii)(A)(3) means any foreign person engaging in “serious human rights abuses” or listed forms of corruption on behalf of a U.S. entity. Also of note – Attorney General Jeff Sessions rolled back a series of Obama-era curbs on civil-asset forfeiture over the summer, strengthening the federal government’s ability to seize cash and property from Americans without criminal charges. That said, this Executive Order only freezes assets, it does not allow the government to take custody of them.
In regards to the 13 listed individuals targeted by this order – several of whom have ties to the Clintons, the Clinton Foundation or Clinton associates – we find the following:
Goulnara Islamovna Karimova, 45, daughter of former Uzbekistan leader Islam Karimov, headed a powerful organized crime syndicate that leveraged state actors to expropriate businesses, monopolize markets, solicit bribes, and administer extortion rackets.
In early 2016, Amsterdam-based telecom giant VimpelCom (now VEON) admitted to a conspiracy in which they paid millions in bribes to Karimova for entry into the Uzbek telecom market. In a series of related cases, the U.S. Justice Department has sought the forfeiture of $850 million in bribe money from various bank accounts across Europe. In July, Uzbek officials arrested Karimova for fraud, money laundering, bribery, and embezzlement and a variety of other claims.
In 2009, a WikiLeaks cable notes that Karimova set her sights on Bill Clinton to gain access to then-Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton.
Three years later, Karimova co-sponsored a 2012 Clinton Foundation fundraiser in Monaco. Hillary Clinton’s State Department was asked to weigh in on Bill Clinton’s contacts with Karimova. Pictured below with Bill Clinton at an AIDS charity event in Cannes, France.
Goulnara Karimova and Bill Clinton
Dan Gertler is an Israeli billionaire mining magnate revealed by the Paradise Papers to be chief negotiator between the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and his primary business partner – mining company Glencore, founded by Marc Rich – who was pardoned for corruption by Bill Clinton on his last day in office after his wife gave $450,000 to the Clinton Library foundation.
Glencore immediately cut ties with Gertler following Trump’s Executive Order.
In 2001 Gertler gave $20m in cash to DRC President Joseph Kabila to use to buy weapons and fund his war against rebels to consolidate his grip on power. In exchange, Gertler’s company IDI was granted a monopoly on the DRC diamond trade, worth hundreds of millions a year. In 2013, Gertler sold the DRC rights to mine oil for $150 million, a 300x increase on an asset he purchased from President Kabila 7 years prior for just $500,000.
In 2012, Kabila offered Bill Clinton $650k for a speech in the DRC – for which Clinton sought State Department approval – only to have his speaking agency recommend against the appearance which would require photos with the dictator.
Yahya Jammeh is the former President of Gambia who came to power in 1994 and stepped down in 2017. He has a long history of serious human rights abuses and corruption – creating a terror and assassination squad called the Junglers that answered directly to him.
Yahya and Zeinab Jammeh with Barack and Michelle Obama, 2014
Jammeh was installed as President during a 1994 CIA-led coup in Gambia authorized by the Clinton administration, and in 2014, the Obama administration effectively sidelined an attempted coup. Indeed, Jammeh appears to have been a friend to both the Clinton and the Obama Administrations.
Angel Rondon Rijo; Dominican Republic – Sanctioned for funneling a $92 million bribe from Brazilian conglomerate Odebrecht to Dominican Republic officials as kickbacks. Odebrecht Donated $50-$100k to the Clinton Foundation.
Benjamin Bol Mel; Sudan – Financial Advisor to South Sudanese President Salva Kiir and president of ABMC construction company accused of corruption. Hillary Clinton pushed for a waiver from the Obama Admin on the prohibition of military aid due to the use of child soldiers in South Sudan.
Artem Yuryevich Chayka; Russia – Son of Russia’s Prosecutor General, Yuri Chayka (Chaika) – used father’s connections to win state owned contracts. Curiously, Russian Attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya met with Yuri Chayka before her involvement in the infamous Trump Tower meeting arranged by Fusion GPS associate Rob Goldstone – a meeting many believe was one of several schemes used by the Obama administration to justify wiretapping the Trump campaign. Of note – Donald Trump Jr. reportedly shut down the Trump tower meeting when Natalia Veselnitskaya began discussing lifting sanctions under the Magnitsky act – the very legislation Trump’s Executive Order is now leveraging against Artem Chayka.
Mukhtar Hamid Shah; Pakistan – surgeon specializing in kidney transplants, believed to be involved in kidnapping, wrongful confinement, and the removal of and tracking in human organs from Pakistani laborers.
One wonders if perhaps the purpose of this Executive Order addressing serious human rights abusers and corruption – a national emergency, was intended to ensure the much talked about swamp renovation comes in ahead of schedule and under budget. We’ll know for sure if Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin starts freezing bank accounts after the holidays.
Frank Sinatra went from saloon singer to Oscar winner and music industry icon – and for 54 years the FBI spied on Ol’ Blue Eyes, compiling a bulging 1,300-page case file on the troubled legend and his notorious associates.
The earliest cases in Sinatra’s FBI file relate to a 1938 incident when cops in Bergen County, N.J., snagged 22-year-old Frank in two sleazy sex stings. He was charged with “seduction and causing the pregnancy of an unmarried young woman,” and later with adultery.
So far, so predictable. But Sinatra’s behavior got darker from there.
In the 1940s a shrink diagnosed Frank as mentally unstable, saying he suffered from “severe psychoneurosis.” The report helped keep him out of the Army during World War II, and he used this time to cozy up to the biggest gangsters of the era, providing them with underage sex slaves.
The FBI first noted Frank’s ties to organized crime in 1947 when he partied in Havana, Cuba, with Charles “Lucky” Luciano and other high-ranking Mafioso, including Albert Anastasia, Carlo Gambino, Frank Costello, Joe Profaci and Santo Trafficante.
FBI files also reveal that when notorious Chicago crime boss Sam Giancana’s daughter got married, Frank put up the mobster’s mistress, singer Phyllis McGuire, at his home.
RadarOnline reports: Informants told the FBI that Frank had twice taken over an entire floor of an Atlantic City hotel “for a private party which lasted several days and included hoodlum guests such as Giancana, Al Capone cousins Joeand Rocco Fischetti, and Joseph ‘Joe Bananas’ Bonanno,” who was head of one of New York’s five crime families.
The “My Way” singer met John F. Kennedy in the late 1950s and worked on his presidential campaign. FBI files alleged they engaged in wild sex orgies with very young women in hotels across the country.
Agents wanted to bug Frank’s Palm Springs home, but their request was denied.
The feds investigated Frank in a “White Slave Traffic Case.” They believed he provided girls for wild sex orgies with JFK and other celebs — and reported “unnatural sex acts” took place at the parties.
Nobody, apparently, had an immediate answer, but many conjectured that the curious weather was due to the positions of the planets, the distance between Earth and the Moon, or sunspots.
At the time, Earth was already experiencing the concluding decades of the Little Ice Age, due to a period of relatively low solar activity from 1790 to 1830 known as the Dalton Minimum. May 1816, in particular, had had the lowest sunspot number (0.1) to date since record-keeping on solar activity had begun. As you may know, we at The Old Farmer’s Almanac use solar activity as the driver of our long-range weather forecasts, and one factor we’ve found is that periods of low activity are associated with colder temperatures, averaged across Earth.
But it was not only solar activity that contributed to the summerless year.
The volcanic eruption of Mt. Tambora, a 13,000-foot-high volcano on the island of Sumbawa, near Bali, Indonesia, was the primary cause of the Year Without a Summer. The eruption happened in April of 1815 and was one of the greatest volcanic eruptions in history. Its toll: perhaps as many as 90,000 lives.
Photo Credit: University of Arizona. Mount Tambora in Indonesia erupted in 1815, which had catastrophic effects globally.
Mt. Tambora ejected immense amounts of volcanic ash into the upper atmosphere, where it was carried around the world by the jet stream. The volcanic dust covered Earth like a great cosmic umbrella, dimming the Sun’s effectiveness during the whole cold year. This resulted in a further reduction in solar irradiance, which brought record cold to much of the world during the following summer. Such an eruption would explain the appearance of the 1816 Sun as “in a cloud of smoke.”
To which must be added the speculation surrounding a complete eclipse of the Sun on May 26, 1816, and of the Moon on June 9 and the “greater number of conjunctions of the planets than usual,” which would favor, wrote Robert B. Thomas, editor of this Almanac, “old maids and bachelors.”
According to an apocryphal story that goes back to as early as 1846, Thomas had predicted for July 13, 1816, “Rain, Hail, and Snow”—all three of which, greatly to his amazement, did fall on this day.
The unusual cold played havoc with agricultural production in many parts of the world, directly or indirectly creating crop failures, dramatic increases in food prices, famines, cultural disruptions, and epidemics of cholera and other diseases. There were major weather events across the United States (which numbered 18 states at the time, with Vermont, Kentucky, Tennessee, Ohio, and Louisiana having been added to the original 13).
In the United States, among the hardest hit were the people of New England. All through July, heavy frosts and occasional ice storms were commonly seen. Most people took off their winter clothing, only to have to put it on again. So many young (and old) birds were frozen that but a few were found around New England in the following 3 years.
Suicides were also not uncommon: Drought, financial panic, and lack of food goaded many to desperation.
In sum, as one anonymous poet put it:
The trees were all leafless,
the mountains were brown,
The face of the country was scathed with a frown;
And bleak were the hills,
and the foliage sere
As had never been seen at
that time of year.
A variety of almanacs and magazines have published their thoughts on the event, too:
“The Sun’s rays seemed to be destitute of heat throughout the summer; all nature was clad in a sable hue.” –Albany (N.Y.) Almanac, 1852
“During the entire season, the Sun arose each morning as though in a cloud of smoke, red and rayless, shedding little light or warmth and setting at night as behind a thick cloud of vapor, leaving hardly a trace of its having passed over the face of the Earth.” –American Magazine of History
“What would happen if the Sun should become tired of illuminating this gloomy planet?” –North American Review, 1816
The Year Without a Summer was far from the only time when weather determined livelihoods and changed the course of history: Did Weather Change History?

~@ We are celebrating COLD weather?.. It is all we get, most of the year.. We had COLD and rainy summer (again) with little sun… We have had extended winters with snow and ‘Killer Frost into May’ – continuing over several years … That leaves our ‘safe season’ for growing, from mid June to August as it was already threatening frost by end of August… Let me assure you that in the 1980’s we could have a dark suntan by the end of May! A sun worshiper knows these things 🙂
So understanding, by definition and being able to testify first hand – our weather is NOT getting worse but our CLIMATE is changing…
It is gradually getting COLDER an NOT warmer, this is progressive year after year… It is not weather!.. When does the WARMING begin??…

Title: Meet The Most Powerful Islamic Network In The World, Controlled By The CIA
Posted 11 Dec 2017 by The Alex Jones Channel
WATCH DOCUMENTARY AT THIS LINK
In the early 90s, a mysterious muscular disease began to surface among multiple patients in France. A team of doctors in Paris discovered that these patients had developed a new disease called Macrophagic Myofascitis, or MMF, which occurs when the aluminum hydroxide adjuvant from a vaccine remains embedded in the muscle tissue.
Note: This film was released in France under the title L’Aluminum, les vaccins and les deux lapins (translated: “Aluminum, vaccines and two rabbits”). The aluminum adjuvant was only tested for 28 days, on two rabbits, and their remains have mysteriously disappeared.
KEY INFORMATION:1) Macrophagic Myofasciitis (MMF), also referred to as Macrophagic Myofasciitis Syndrome (MMS), is a rare muscle disease characterized by microscopic lesions found in muscle tissue. It causes fatigue, chronic inflammation and joint pain.
2) The CDC has a complete list of vaccine ingredients on their website, which can be found HERE.
3) From FDA.gov: “Aluminum is incorporated into some vaccines as an adjuvant. The purpose of formulating vaccines with adjuvants is to increase the immune response to the antigen (the component of the vaccine that stimulates the immune system to make antibodies). When FDA evaluates a vaccine for safety and effectiveness, an adjuvant such as aluminum, is considered to be a part of the vaccine, rather than a component that is licensed separately.”
4) Aluminum is present in U.S. childhood vaccines that prevent hepatitis A, hepatitis B, diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis (DTaP, Tdap), Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib), human papillomavirus (HPV) and pneumococcus infection.
5) The FDA study on aluminum in vaccines found that the maximum amount of aluminum an infant could be exposed to over the first year of life would be 4.225 milligrams (mg). Federal Regulations for biological products (including vaccines) limit the amount of aluminum in the recommended individual dose of biological products, to not more than 0.85-1.25 mg.
6) Amount of aluminum in vaccines include:
- Hib (PedVaxHib brand only) – .225 mg per shot
- Hepatitis B – .25 mg
- DTaP – depending on the manufacturer, ranges from .17 to .625 mg
- Pneumococcus – .125 mg
- Hepatitis A – .25 mcg
- HPV – .225 mg
- Pentacel (DTaP, HIB and Polio combo vaccine) – .33 mcg
- Pediarix (DTaP, Hep B and Polio combo vaccine) – .85 mcg
7) Recently, a new syndrome was introduced by Dr. Yehuda Shoenfeld, called
EXCERPT FROM THE SITE
Autoimmune/inflammatory Syndrome Induced by Adjuvants (ASIA). The activation of the immune system by adjuvants, a desirable effect, could trigger manifestations of autoimmunity or autoimmune disease that includes postvaccination phenomena, macrophagic myofasciitis, Gulf War syndrome and siliconosis. This syndrome is characterized by nonspecific and specific manifestations of autoimmune disease. 8) The French and British use the pronunciation “aluminium.” We’ve elected to use the American-ized version “aluminum.”
Prof. Christopher Exley recently published a new study on aluminum in the brains of 10 donors who had autism. They contained some of the highest levels of aluminum ever recorded in the human brain. Read more here.
CMSRI (Children’s Medical Safety Research Institute)helped fund the grants for several scientists featured in Injecting Aluminum, to do research, specifically Dr. Christopher Exley as well as Dr. Romain Gherardi, Dr. Jerome Authier. This nonprofit organization is dedicated to funding independent research at leading universities and medical facilities worldwide to identify the causal factors behind today’s epidemic of chronic illness and disabilities.

Many things we know about the government’s misdeeds started with the research of the Covert Action Quarterly.
Founded by former CIA agent James Agee, it featured research and writing by Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Michael Parenti, and Christopher Hitchens and published from 1978 – 2005.
Fred Hampton was well spoken, he was out spoken, and he was a real community leader.
And he was young. Just 21. He had a life of social and political action in front of him.
Then, with intelligence provided by the FBI, Chicago Police raided his apartment in the early morning, shooting directly at the bed he was known to sleep in. They missed his eight and a half month pregnant girlfriend – and him.
Then they cleared the room and finished him off with two close range shots to the head.
The police report said that Hampton shot at them and refused to surrender.
The evidence shows nothing of the kind happened. He was murdered in cold blood.
No one has gone to jail for this yet – but there is no statute of limitations on murder and many of the people involved in the killing involved are still alive so we can hope. The law says they’re as guilty as the person who pulled the trigger.
From October 30 through November 22, 2017, there were 4,289 sealed indictments filed in the past 3 weeks in all 94 federal District Court Districts in the United States. This is utterly unprecedented in US history.
The “normal” is 1000 in 12 months.
Skuttlebutt from my former colleagues in the Intel Community is that the feds are going to “swoop” all of them in one massive action, to “drain the swamp.”
This is a developing story . . . check back for further details Tuesday Morning.
There are many reason a case may initially be “sealed.” From it being a Minor charged with a first-time possession of minor drugs, to a Civil Case where trade secrets are involved, there are legitimate reasons for a case to show up on federal dockets as “Sealed.”
Historically, however, the overwhelming majority deal with Indictments that a Defendant DOES NOT KNOW ABOUT, and they keep it secret until he/she is arrested.
Here is a federal ANALYSIS of how and why cases may be “SEALED” — a primer on the additional details to come from all 94 federal district courts. . .
At the link below is the PROOF, taken directly from United States District Court computers via the Public Access to Court Electronic Records (PACER.gov) system, which is the automated filing system for ALL United States federal courts.
These official court records show that between October 30 and November 22, 2017, a grand total of 4,289 SEALED Indictments/Cases now have docket Numbers from various federal courts. This has NEVER happened before.
Yes, there have been occasional SEALED cases- maybe three or four per District. It was previously considered “unusual” to have five or six such sealed cases.
Now, in some Districts, there are several HUNDRED such sealed cases, all filed between October 30 and November 22, 2017 —– about three weeks!
While I do not know the nature or the names of Defendants of ANY of these SEALED Cases, SPECULATION (i.e. skuttlebutt / gossip / perhaps some inside info) in the Intelligence Community from my former colleagues on the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force and elsewhere, is that much of this has to do with SEX CRIMES uncovered by the Search Warrant for former US Congressman Anthony Weiner’s laptop computer!
That search warrant (Shown below) ALLEGEDLY led law enforcement to a virtual treasure trove of kiddie porn pics- and child trafficking rings in the US and other countries, and investigators needed many months to build all these cases.
The files I am releasing today are the downloaded files from federal courts showing the public court Dockets in all 94 federal districts. The link below will get you to a Google-Drive that I have set up to be accessed by the Public.
The one main file is a .ZIP file named Pacer_2017.11.22-20171128T141642Z-001.zip and within it are 94 separate Court Dockets from each of the 94 federal “Districts” in the USA. They are named by state name abbreviation. So, for instance, the Southern District of New York would be “NY-S” while the Eastern District of New York would be “NY-E.”
These files were taken directly from the federal court system computers via a lawful manner. None of this involved any shenanigans or dubious actions by anyone, so all of it is perfectly lawful for you to download and look at.
I spoke to a former Assistant United States Attorney in New York City regarding this story while I was developing it. According to him, in the past, if the government had an Indictment against a “big fish” they didn’t wait very long at all to grab him and make a big public spectacle. His exact words were “They are not respecters of people.”
While that may have been the method IN THE PAST, there’s a new Sheriff in town: Donald J. Trump. And if the skuttlebutt is correct, it may have been decided to keep this under wraps longer — until they get Indictments against ALL the big fish — so that once they move to grab some of these folks, the others won’t find out about it fast enough to flee.
My gut tells me, many of these Indictments will be unsealed BEFORE CHRISTMAS and a lot of very high profile people are in for a very nasty holiday season.
Here are a couple of articles to help you keep up with the Bundy federal court case.
In the summer of 2006 I spent considerable time researching the Mena connection to the Iran-Contra affair and sent many letters to various people involved as well as to Reader’s Digest and other publications for a chance to cover the story for them.
Here is one of many I wrote to Washington officials, which I now believe is the reason I was put on some kind of ‘watch list,’ requiring me to get double and triple screened at the airport. I stopped flying immediately once I realized these searches were not ‘random’ as I’d been repeatedly told.
Senator Jim Leach
2186 Rayburn House Office Bldg
Washington, D.C. 20510
Dear Senator Leach,
First, I would like to thank you for the many years of work you have dedicated to office in order to further the social amelioration of our country and make our political arena a more just and honorable institution.
I am writing to you as a concerned citizen in regards to the investigation on Mena, AR conducted while you were Chairman of the House Banking Committee. At that time, I applauded your diligence in pursuing the matter of the train murders and their subsequent cover-up and entanglement with the Iran-Contra affair after no fewer than eight state and federal investigations had been dropped. I felt so strongly that your honesty and integrity would triumph no matter who was learned to be at fault, in other words, I thought you had a non-partisan commitment to this issue.
I know you can understand my disappointment in learning that your investigation has also been dropped and this terrible series of crimes continues to be unsolved and its perpetrators unpunished. I have contacted your office several times to try to find the reason behind this dismissal despite the years and millions spent to bring it to justice. I was finally told by a quite impertinent staffer of yours, named Mr. Greg Wierzynski, that if no report has been published than it is none of my business and that if I feel far too much money was wasted in all these fruitless investigations that were started and never finished than this was ‘just my opinion.’
Why were there years of research conducted by Steve Ganis never completed? Why, as a tax-paying citizen, do I have no right to such information as he was able to un cover? And how could so many investigations be started and never finished if in fact there is nothing to hide?
Honorable sir, do you really want your name attached to another incomplete and unpublished investigation for all of history? Do you really think the future citizens of the country will leave such a scandal permanently undisclosed? Do you not worry about the political climate we are handing down to our children—one that is wrought with bi-partisan criminals go unpunished because they are above the law? It is very hard for me to imagine that a man who has dedicated his life to politics did so not out of any sense of moral or social duty, but rather for some other, and therefore far less honorable, reason.
This scandal touched so many Americans on so many levels and to see it continually ignored by every administration is no less than heartbreaking. It makes me afraid for the world, and very frankly, ashamed to call myself an American.
Thank you for your time and consideration, honorable senator.
(I was one small voice in an enormous sea of outrage. My deep gratitude to those actual journalists, investigators, whistleblowers who provided all the content for researching this subject. I will give them credit wherever I know who they are over these series of posts.)
A good documentary to start with some of those biggest names and efforts:
~@ Finally! And hopefully the dirty deeds of the Arkansas governor, at the time, will also be exposed.
Order revives theories about government cover up of drug smuggling in Mena airport
The documents may or may not reveal anything new about the death of Linda Ives’ 17-year-old son, Kevin, whose body was discovered before dawn on Aug. 23, 1987, alongside that of his friend, Don Henry, 16, on a dark stretch of Saline County railroad tracks. But the Benton woman says it’s time to find out.
Though the state medical examiner initially determined that the boys were struck by a train as they lay in a marijuana-induced deep sleep, another pathologist said he believed they were killed before their bodies were placed on the tracks — though no one has ever conclusively said how.
A number of wide-ranging theories, many revolving around reports of drug smuggling in the 1980s out of the Mena airport in Polk County, and some suggesting a government cover-up, have since taken root and developed lives of their own. They have been the subject of documentaries, movies and books.
The enduring mystery surrounding the boys’ deaths led the Benton woman to file a lawsuit last year seeking to force eight federal agencies and three Arkansas-based law enforcement agencies to produce any and all documents amassed over the past 30 years that may provide some answers. The lawsuit accuses the agencies of violating the federal Freedom of Information Act by failing to turn over complete documents in response to requests Ives and her Little Rock attorney, R. David Lewis, filed in 2012.
The requests sought all information the agencies may have in their archives pertaining to Kevin Ives or Barry Seal, a pilot who in 1985 testified that he smuggled tons of cocaine from Colombia to drop zones in the Louisiana swamps, and was assassinated in 1986 in his hometown of Baton Rouge.
Rumor has it that Seal, who flew regularly in and out of the Mena airport, was initially hired by the CIA to fly low over Central American countries taking photographs of rebels, and then began smuggling drugs back into the United States for extra cash.
Talk of low-flying planes in the area where the boys were run over by the train led to suspicions that their deaths might have had something to do with drug drops — and that perhaps they were killed, and then laid out on the tracks to cover up any evidence of murder, because they witnessed or tried to intercept a drop.
Ironically, the in-camera review, which is conducted by a judge in private, coincides with the recent release of a movie, American Made, that is based on the saga surrounding Seal.
Miller dismissed most of the agencies from the lawsuit in a July 25 summary judgment order. But on Nov. 15, he ordered the three remaining defendants — the Executive Office of U.S. Attorneys, the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Department of Homeland Security — to turn over to him, by Dec. 1, all the unredacted documents they say are exempt from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act.
According to the government’s written objections to the records requests, the documents may include the minutes or transcripts of grand jury proceedings dating back to the early 1990s; investigators’ private notes to one another; the names of confidential witnesses; secret investigative techniques and theories; and possibly more recent information that has surfaced in an ongoing investigation.
Lewis said he doesn’t trust the government to supply all the information that Miller wants to review privately.
First Assistant U.S. Attorney Patrick Harris, whose office in the Eastern District of Arkansas is representing the federal defendants, said Wednesday that attorneys in his office are gathering all the documents in an attempt to comply with the order by the deadline, and that there is no plan to contest it.
The agencies Miller dismissed from the suit were the CIA, the Defense Intelligence Agency, the Department of Justice’s Criminal Division, the State Department, the FBI, the Arkansas State Police, the Saline County sheriff’s office and the Bryant Police Department.
Ives and Lewis said any documents they have obtained over the years from the various agencies in response to the Freedom of Information requests have been so heavily redacted as to be indecipherable and basically useless. They contend that after 30 years, the release of the information isn’t likely to put anyone in danger or upset any current investigations.
“I’m not after any grand jury minutes,” Lewis said last week. He said he and Ives just want information that may explain how and why Kevin Ives died. “Plaintiff is trying by this action to learn how her son was killed, by whom, and how and why, how and by whom his cause of death was covered up,” the lawsuit states, complaining that the named agencies have provided “inadequate responses by virtue of no response or highly redacted responses.”
The suit states that Ives “believes the only reason she has not received adequate responses is that an adequate response would show crimes by government officials and would expose them and government agencies to suits for damages.” Ives could not be reached for comment.
According to news articles shortly after the boys’ deaths, the engineer of the train that couldn’t stop in time to avoid running over the boys at 4:25 a.m. Aug. 3, 1987, later said the train’s spotlight had illuminated them shortly before they were struck. He said they were lying on their backs, motionless and in a somewhat unnatural position, and covered by a tarp from the waist down. A rifle and a flashlight lay beside them.
The boys’ friends and acquaintances from Bryant High School later told authorities they had seen the two friends together earlier that night, Kevin Ives with a bottle of whiskey, and that Ives and Henry said they planned to go “headlighting” for deer later. Crew members of an earlier train that had passed over the same stretch of tracks at 1:30 a.m. reported seeing no one on or near the tracks.
“There are lots of accounts of the cause of death of Kevin Ives from lots of books and other sources,” Lewis wrote in the lawsuit, “but the accounts support several inconsistent theories of who did what, which will be difficult to reconcile without the investigative reports from the defendants.”
According to an Oct. 4 memorandum written by Assistant U.S. Attorney Stacey McCord in Little Rock, both the Executive Office of U.S. Attorneys and the DEA have provided a “Vaughn index” to the court to explain their reasons for exempting some documents matching the request. The memo says an index “must adequately describe each withheld document or deletion from a released document, must state the exemption claimed for each, and explain why the exemption is relevant.”
McCord said a Freedom of Information request received by the Executive Office in 2013 had been referred from the FBI, which had received the request from Lewis in 2012. The request sought all records, recordings, documents and emails, unredacted, relevant to the death of Kevin Ives and regarding Mena Airport drug trafficking as related to Seal.
In response, the FBI referred 13 pages to the Executive Office, which on Sept. 20, 2013, sent Lewis a letter saying it was withholding the 13 pages “in full,” pursuant to laws prohibiting the disclosure of grand-jury material. It said Lewis appealed to the Office of Information Policy, which on Feb. 25, 2014, affirmed the exemption.
The memo says the 13 pages include an 11-page letter from the U.S. attorney for the Middle District of Louisiana to an FBI agent that “discussed the investigative techniques used by law enforcement during a Grand Jury investigation of a criminal case. … The document contains information that would reveal the identity of sources of information, the scope of the investigation and where the government is seeking its evidence. It contains names of the targets of the investigation and members of the law enforcement who were involved in the investigation.”
The second document is a letter from the U.S. attorney in Louisiana to the Administrative Office of the Courts and an attachment, which McCord said discusses the scope and direction of a grand jury investigation, and constitutes attorney work product, making it exempt.
She said the two documents comprising the 13 pages also were withheld “to protect the identities of third-party individuals named in the documents, such as potential witnesses and law enforcement personnel,” and because the release of the information “could subject the persons to unwarranted invasion of their personal privacy and subject them to harassment, harm, or exposure to unwarranted or derogatory publicity and inferences.”
She said the Executive Office “determined that there was no countervailing public interest” that would outweigh the privacy rights. McCord said other documents withheld include DEA reports of investigation, which memorialize investigative and intelligence activities related to a law enforcement activity and are protected by the Privacy Act, and interoffice memos, which, by revealing the identity of a confidential source, “could reasonably be expected to endanger the health and safety of individuals whose names appear in the materials or those connected with them.”
The memo says the requests to Homeland Security couldn’t be answered because the agency was created Jan. 24, 2003, after Ives’ death, and no records responsive to the request could be found.

Declassified files are useful in a world where truth tellers and open-minded investigators are shut down, censored and accused of being “conspiracy theorists.” Our world is fast becoming a digital censorship grid, where corporate technological behemoths like Google (who own YouTube) and Facebook rig algorithms (which control search engine results and news feeds) to elevate the information they want you to see and bury the information they don’t want you to see. Amazon too is part of this emerging multinational corporate technological oligarchy, and you may remember they have been caught censoring books in the past (such as No One Died at Sandy Hook by Jim Fetzer) by forbidding them to be sold on their platform.
The handy thing about declassified documents is that they are genuine pieces of black-and-white evidence that prove governmental collusion, corruption, criminality and conspiracy. They show the shocking extent to which groups of people, using and hiding behind the concept of “government”, have committed egregious crimes against humanity. It’s hard for naysayers and censors to deny the authenticity of governmental declassified files which show that our history is full of conspiracy fact, not conspiracy theory. And thanks to the internet and the spread of information it enables, we can access and verify what happened, and break through any denial with undeniable black and white documents.
With that in mind, here is a list of 20 declassified files (most from the US Government) proving the very real crimes it has been engaged in, spanning a variety of areas including forced sterilization, mind control, weather modification, false flag operations and igniting war.
The documents speak for themselves.
Think that World War II ended with the defeat of the Nazis? Think again. They didn’t get defeated; they just went south (Argentina) and joined the ranks of their conquerors (US, UK, Russia) in a dirty deal of legal immunity for inside information. German scientists, technicians and engineers had made brilliant and groundbreaking advances in many fields in the lead-up to and during the war, and the victors didn’t have a moral problem with the Nazi weapons of destruction … the only problem was that the brilliant scientists were on the wrong side. The US got a sizeable portion of these Nazi scientists (around 1500) and smuggled them into NASA and the CIA, where some of them such as Wernher von Braun went on to make a name for themselves. Thus, the US willingly allowed its military and intelligence agencies to be infected with Nazi ideology, which continues to this day.
You can read the declassified docs relating to Project Paperclip or Operation Paperclip here.
The mainstream narrative is that at the end of WWII, Hitler committed suicide in Berlin in a bunker. It’s a nice story, but apparently, that’s all it is – a story. In his book Hitler in Argentina: The Documented Truth of Hitler’s Escape from Berlin, author Harry Cooper produced a slew of astounding evidence that Hitler and other top Nazis such as Martin Bormann traveled in German submarines all the way to Argentina.
Some of the evidence that this astonishing claim is true are these FBI declassified docs.
The article FBI Quietly Declassified Secret Files Attesting Hitler Fled to Argentina in 1945 contains further information:
“Along with FBI documents detailing an eye witness account of Hitler’s whereabouts in Argentina, more evidence is coming to light to help prove that Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun did not die in that bunker. In 1945, the Naval Attaché in Buenos Aires informed Washington there was a high probability that Hitler and Eva Braun had just arrived in Argentina. This coincides with the sightings of the submarine U-530. Added proof comes in the form of newspaper articles detailing the construction of a Bavarian styled mansion in the foothills of the Andes Mountains. Further proof comes in the form of architect Alejandro Bustillo who wrote about his design and construction of Hitler’s new home which was financed by earlier wealthy German immigrants.
… [an] archeologist from Connecticut State, Nicholas Bellatoni was allowed to perform DNA testing on one of the skull fragments recovered. What he discovered set off a reaction through the intelligence and scholarly communities. Not only did the DNA not match any recorded samples thought to be Hitler’s, they did not match Eva Braun’s familiar DNA either.”
This is a great one for all those who think that the government would never hurt its own citizens. Operation Northwoods was the outrageous plan for the US military to attack its own people and cities (Washington DC and Miami) as a false flag operation to frame Cuba. It was a pretext to invade Cuba. The 1962 declassified US Joint Chiefs of Staff Memo was entitled “Operation Northwoods – Justification for US Military Intervention in Cuba.” In its own words, the document states that a “series of well coordinated incidents will be planned to take place in and around Guantanamo to give genuine appearance of being done by hostile Cuban forces.” Luckily JFK had the nous to reject the plan; by 1962 he had discerned the insidious influence of Military Intelligence Complex upon his presidency.
You can find some of the declassified docs for Operation Northwoods here.

CoIntelPro has become a famous word of its own, derived from the full operational name Counter Intelligence Program. This was a program run by the FBI under Hoover which started in 1956. CoIntelPro was a series of undercover operations that targeted people and groups the US Government deemed were a problem, such as the communist party, other far left groups, civil rights groups, far right groups (e.g. the KKK) and individuals activists such as Martin Luther King. The scope of CoIntelPro was broad: it involved monitoring, surveilling, infiltrating, discrediting and disrupting. Although then Attorney General Robert Kennedy authorized some spying, the FBI was given an inch and took a mile (much like today’s spy agencies), clearly overstepping the bounds of legality. It became a way for the government to intimidate and stifle dissidents.
You can read declassified docs on CoIntelPro here.
Operation Mockingbird was a CIA disinformation project to infiltrate and covertly control the mainstream media. It began in the 1950s under then CIA director Allen Dulles. The declassified files (most are classified and secret, but a tiny fraction are here) show how the CIA infiltrated the mainstream media and had its pieces inserted into TV, newspapers and journals everywhere as “news” when they were nothing more than lies and propaganda. Richard Salant, former President of CBS News, once said that “our job is to give people not what they want, but what we decide they ought to have.”
Mockingbird was famously exposed in the 1975 Church Committee hearings (see a video excerpt here), with CIA Director William Colby testifying that over 400 CIA agents were active in the US media, to control what was reported through American mainstream television, newspapers and magazines.
Nothing much has changed today. Journalists worldwide are still on the payroll, and some were brave enough to talk about it, such as the late Udo Ulfkotte.
Operation MK Ultra has become so infamous that the term is basically synonymous with mind control. The “MK” of MK Ultra stands for mind kontrolle (German spelling of control), with a nod to the German Nazi scientists who developed it for the CIA who were brought in under Paperclip.
In 1953, CIA agent Richard Helms (later CIA director in 1966) chose Dr. Sidney Gottlieb to run the TSS (Technical Service Staff) to develop truth serum drugs, hypnotic techniques and mind control techniques, with the purpose of creating spies, couriers and assassins. Eisenhower approved using Nazi scientists and Jewish victims as guinea pigs. MK Ultra was so large it had 149 sub-projects. By 1953, the emphasis of MK Ultra was LSD (see below), but by the 1960s, this had changed into biological radio communications.
Helms later destroyed much of the MK Ultra archive when he left in 1972, but some declassified files remain.
Operation Midnight Climax, one of many MK Ultra sub-projects, used paid prostitutes to lure people into CIA safe houses in San Francisco, Marin and New York. There, they were surreptitiously given a wide range of substances, including LSD, and monitored behind one-way glass. This was not the first time, nor the last, that the US Government used drugs and other substances with which to experiment upon unsuspecting individuals. The point was to study the effects of LSD and gain research on the potential military and intelligence uses of sexual blackmail, surveillance technology and mind-altering drugs.
Some of the declassified files are available here.
The CIA has long used illegal drugs to fund its illegal operations. Drugs are often one of the secret motivation behind wars. Vietnam is part of the Golden Triangle of heroin-producing opium poppies, Afghanistan is also home to huge swathes of opium poppies and after the US invaded many Central and South American countries, it took control of the cocaine production there.
In 1996, journalist Gary Webb exposed the connection between the CIA, cocaine and the Nicaraguan contras. In the early 1980s the CIA pushed the sale of cocaine in Los Angeles to help finance their covert war against the Sandinistas in Nicaragua. (Also see: The Clinton Body Count)
You can read some of the declassified files on the CIA’s connection to the drug trade here, including excerpts from Oliver North’s notebook obtained under the FOIA. North writes that Air Force General Richard Secord told him (North) that “14 M to finance [the arms in the warehouse] came from drugs.”
Operation Gladio, which still continues to this day, is the codename for a clandestine NATO “stay-behind” operation in Italy during the Cold War. The CIA spearheaded Gladio under the pretext of preventing the spread of Soviet communism in Europe. The name gladio is the Italian form of gladius, a type of Roman short sword. Gladio came to refer to a whole range of stay-behind cells and groups in Europe, although originally, Operation Gladio was the Italian branch.
Gladio became famous when then Italian Prime Minister Giulio Andreotti talked about it. Gladio involved the Freemasons, Mafia members and Vatican, who all united with the CIA and NATO in a holy war against communism. Operation Gladio was responsible for some horrible atrocities and false flag attacks in Italy, such as the bombing of Bologna train station in 1980. Today, even the Western-backed fighters in Nazi Ukraine and Syria are basically Gladio fighters.
Declassified files on Gladio can be found here.
The United States Government has a long and sordid history of using its own people as guinea pigs and unwitting subjects for experimentation, much of which was done without their knowledge or consent. Some of this came in the form of forced sterilization programs. This article describes a particular program aimed at Native American Indian women:
“During the late 1960s and the early 1970s, a policy of involuntary surgical sterilization was imposed upon Native American women in the United States, usually without their knowledge or consent, by the federally funded Indian Health Service (IHS), then run by the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA). It is alleged that the existence of the sterilization program was discovered by members of the American Indian Movement (AIM) during its occupation of the BIAheadquarters in 1972. A 1974 study by Women of All Red Nations (WARN), concluded that as many as 42 percent of all American Indian women of childbearing age had, by that point, been sterilized without their consent. A subsequent investigation was conducted by the U.S. General Accounting Office (GAO), though it was restricted to only four of the many IHS facilities nationwide and examined only the years 1973 to 1976. The GAO study showed that 3,406 involuntary sterilizations were performed in these four IHS hospitals during this three-year period. Consequently, the IHS was transferred to the Department of Health and Human Services in 1978.”

One of the darkest episodes in the history of the US Government, the Tuskegee syphilis experiment was a nefarious clinical study conducted by the US Public Health Service which began in 1932 and lasted all the way to 1972.
The point was to study the natural progression of untreated syphilis in rural African American men who thought they were receiving free health care from the government. It involved knowingly giving the men syphilis without their knowledge, telling them they just had “bad blood”, then watching them as the disease progressed. The researchers (or perhaps better put, sadists) deliberately didn’t treat the men with penicillin which was found in the 1940s to be an effective cure for syphilis. Meanwhile, numerous men in the study died of syphilis, 40 of their wives contracted the disease and subsequently 19 children were born with congenital syphilis.
If you feel angry reading about this, or shake your head in disbelief at the sheer level of evil involved, I don’t blame you.

Human experimentation has not just been limited to the injection of diseases and sterilization. There have also been tests upon the population which have involved spraying entire areas with pathological agents — sometimes natural, sometimes man-made biological warfare agents.
Two examples of this are Operation LAC (Large Area Coverage) and Operation Dew, both carried out by the US Army Chemical Corps in the 1950s, both of which involved dispersing tiny zinc cadmium sulfide (ZnCdS) particles (which were fluorescent) and plant spores (lycopodium) from an aircraft over much of the country. The goal was to ascertain the dispersion and geographic range of the sprayed agents. The Government said it was safe at first, but “according to the National Library of Medicine’s TOXNET database, the EPA reported that Cadmium-sulfide was classified as a probable human carcinogen.”

Body snatching and experimentation upon dead bodies (cadavers) is also a documented fact when it comes to governmental crimes. During the 1950s, the US AEC (Atomic Energy Commission) and US Air Force conducted a study on the global health effects of fallout from nuclear weapons testing. The AEC wanted to learn more about how strontium-90 (a radioactive isotope of strontium) affected human tissue and bones, so they secretly collected (stole) over 1500 tissue samples from the bodies of dead babies and young children from around the globe – without consent.
Project Sunshine was declassified in 1959.
All those who are still in denial over the reality of chemtrails, cloud seeding and geoengineering programs may want to take a look at this. Operation Popeye was a weather modification program in Southeast Asia (mainly Laos and Vietnam) from 1967 to 1972. The purpose was to aid US efforts in the Vietnam War. Specifically, it was a cloud seeding operation which aimed to extend the monsoon season (targeted over areas of the Ho Chi Minh Trail) by inducing rain over the “infiltration routes in North Vietnam and southern Laos” and therefore to “interdict or at least interfere with truck traffic between North and South Vietnam” – as written in this memo from the Deputy Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs (Kohler) to Secretary of State Rusk.
Remember, this was the 1960s. Imagine what they can do today with HAARP and geoengineering.
The US and Iran have been on tense terms for a long time. In 1953, the US decided to target Iran with one of its now famous regime change programs to overthrow the democratically elected Mossadegh and replace him the puppet dictator Shah who was happy to give the US and UK a cut of the Iranian oil profits. Then, during the Iraq-Iran War of the 1980s, the US took the side of Iraq against Iran. Towards the end of the 1980s (July 3rd, 1988 to be exact), Iran Air Flight 655 (a commercial flight) was travelling along a standard flight path through Iranian airspace on the way to Dubai. Just a few minutes after taking off, it was shot down by the US Navy, killing all 290 people on board.
The Navy lied and stated they thought Flight 655 was an attacking fighter plane, and that they had attempted radio contact but received no response. However, declassified documents (here) reveal a different story. The truth was that the US only used emergency radio frequencies but not air traffic control frequencies, and also that the Navy cruiser registered the plane was climbing at the time, not descending as an attacking plane would be. Some of the files were declassified in 1988 and others in 1993.
This one is another shocking event in the annals of governmental crime, although in the case the perpetrator was the Japanese Government. Unit 731 refers to a covert biological and chemical warfare research and development unit of the Japanese Army located in China during World War II. Under the command of General Ishii, the Japanese committed war crimes and lethal human experimentation upon around 300 people, mostly Chinese victims (though there were some Mongolian, Russian, Korean and Allied POWs too).
At the end of the war, the Japanese were caught, but in a familiar tale, the US traded immunity for data (a common theme which also happened with Project Paperclip). The Unit 731 researchers were secretly given immunity by the US in exchange for the data they gathered through human experimentation. Wikipedia quotes Hal Gold on Douglas MacArthur (Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces), who wrote to Washington that “additional data, possibly some statements from Ishii probably can be obtained by informing Japanese involved that information will be retained in intelligence channels and will not be employed as ‘War Crimes’ evidence.”

It was the war of a generation. It was a war of failure. It was a war that should never have been. It was a war that awoke a mass of peace activists across the US and the world. It was a war that produced swathes of soldiers suffering from PTSD. It was a war that killed millions.
The Vietnam War was brutal, and so was the deception that started it. LBJ, fresh from his role in the Kennedy assassination, decided to plunge the US into war in 1964 by “making shit up.” He claimed that the US ships were being fired upon int he Gulf of Tonkin, but it was an utter lie. In 2005 and 2006, NSA documents were declassified showing that the second Gulf of Tonkin incident, which was used as a justification for the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution (which led to the Vietnam War), never happened.
The Gulf of Tonkin incident is in many ways the epitome of government crime. The whole thing was entirely fabricated; lying, deceit. Although there was no enemy ship, it was designed to frame the enemy — a false flag operation. It was only invented as a pretext for war, to start a war the New World Order already wanted. Then, the truth was hidden afterwards for decades and decades until finally it was decided that enough of the people involved were old, well out of office/power or dead, and the truth was finally revealed in 2005 after being “classified” for 40+ years.
For the last 3 declassified projects, we delve deeper down the rabbit hole, beyond human experimentation, war crimes and weather modification and into strange and mysterious operations, which although far out, are nonetheless proven to have taken place.
Project Stargate was the code name for a secret US Army unit established in 1978 at Fort Meade, Maryland, by the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) and SRI International (a California contractor). The goal was to analyze psychic phenomena (remote viewing, ESP, clairvoyance, astral travel, etc.) and see if they could be weaponized for military and intelligence purposes. The original founders of the program were Russell Targ, Hal Puthoff and Ingo Swann – nicknamed the “Psi Spies” by the late Jim Marrs. The Project had various predecessors and offshoots (such as Gondola Wish, Grill Flame, Center Lane, Sun Streak and Scanate) until 1991 when they were consolidated and renamed under the umbrella term Stargate Project. At one point, the late Major General Albert Stubblebine was in charge, the same one who was outspoken in exposing the 9/11 false flag operation, and who was the husband of health and nutrition activist Dr. Rima Laibow.
The CIA terminated Project Stargate in 1995, deeming that it had provided no use. You can read the declassified files here.
There are some who can accept many parts of the worldwide conspiracy, but simply “can’t go there” when it comes to UFOs and ETs. If you or someone you know is such a person, take a look at this. Project 1794 is black-and-white proof that the US military, specifically the USAF (US Air Force), was developing UFOs or flying saucers. In 2012, the USAF revealed that its Aeronautical Systems Division had plans to produce a UFO craft in the 1950s. The craft vehicle was designed to reach speeds of Mach 4, an altitude of 100,000 feet and have a range of over 1,000 nautical miles. The project was abandoned in 1961.

Finally, we come to one of the biggest and most exciting bunch of declassified documents – those of Majestic 12, also known as MJ-12 or MJ 12. This shadowy group was allegedly given the task of overseeing the “alien question” during the aftermath of WWII, the start of the Cold War and the aftermath of the 1947 UFO Roswell crash.
Many researchers and whistle blowers have drawn the conclusion that MJ-12 was the core group within other groups that controlled access to extraterrestrial technology. Some of its members included famous people such as Vannevar Bush, who was also instrumental in the development of weather manipulation programs (as exposed by Peter Kirby in his research on what he calls The New Manhattan Project).
Respected UFO researcher Bob Wood (together with his team including son Ryan Wood, UFO researcher Nick Redfern, UFO researcher Stanton Friedman, Timothy Cooper, Jim Clarkson and the late Jim Marrs) has made a website with many Majestic docs available. You can read these MJ-12 files here. They have they own system of rating the documents for authenticity.
This is an authenticated MJ-12 document written by former CIA chief Allen Dulles.
Some governmental crimes are difficult to prove conclusively. We have a pretty good idea of what happened in the JFK assassination and on 9/11, but it’s difficult to prove every detail, since so many agents were involved and so many docs are still classified. However, there is little arguing with the declassified docs presented above. They are part of the record of historical fact. Therefore, they are great proof to show skeptics and those stuck in denial. They are also very important pieces of evidence for those mysteries we are still yet to uncover. They function as clues pointing us in the right direction…
If the Government was willing to kill its own innocent citizens to start a war with Cuba (Northwoods), to entirely fabricate an incident that never happened to start a war with Vietnam (Gulf of Tonkin) and to experiment on its own citizens no matter what harmed it caused them (MK Ultra, Midnight Climax, Tuskegee, forced sterilization, etc.), what lengths is it not willing to go to? Are there any limits at all on its behavior or capacity to harm?
Giving deep thought to that last question alone may help those wallowing in the Matrix to free themselves from the cognitive dissonance which entraps them.

Julian Assange is back on the scene, and we all know that he doesn’t post his subtle tweets without having some serious evidence to back it up. While speculation has run rampant on social media forums as to what actually happened in Las Vegas, we can now be assured that Assange knows something and fully intends on showing us exactly what that something may be.
Questions seem to be more abundant than answers this time around, and that is what most likely can attribute to the mass influx of regular people trying to solve the mystery by any means necessary. We have seen things ranging from green aliens to the very same thing that Assange is alluding to. The FBI was responsible. Which is not very far-fetched on the grander scale of things already proven in the past about CIA and FBI involvement with events like this.
The average American, however, is becoming more attune to those very sad realities, and due to that the sub-groups won’t be able to continue their nefarious works for much longer. When Assange publishes whatever information it is that he surely has, we will know much more than we ever would otherwise.
According to AFF :
In a pair of tweets that will leave you scratching your head and blinking at the screen, Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, let loose what he really thought about the FBI in the wake of the deadliest mass shooting in American history.
His words came as a reply message to another Twitter user that posted about FBI methodologies. The content is alarming and that’s partly what is so fascinating about the statement’s placement as a reply which was assumedly meant to go largely unnoticed. Assange, who hasn’t said anything else about the shooting orchestrated by Stephen Paddock, hasn’t tweeted on the topic since and has returned to his regular rant about the Catalonia independence movement. Still, these few words will leave you wondering just how much we have left to learn.
Almost all “terror” plots are created by the FBI as part of its business model.
What is the business of the FBI? Extracting tax. What does it need to do that? A stable threat. Prob? Real terrorists are sporadic & make FBI look weak. Solution? Make them.
Wow. The implications here are rather damning particularly in the aftermath of the Mandalay Bay Massacre. Truth be told, the FBI does in fact have a long history of giving mentally deranged individuals weapons and then arresting them for plotting attacks.
This is well documented and there is often some news segment discussing the latest sting conducted by federal agents resulting in the arrests of a radical or potential domestic terrorist. In a number of cases, the FBI have facilitated the procurement of explosives even.
The risks involved in these high stakes set ups must go without saying: if anything goes wrong, people die.
Take for example the gun running scheme conducted under the operation name “Fast & Furious.”. Acting under the theory that weapons could be used like a medical tracer at a hospital, guns were injected into the cartel system by federal agents that sold them to the gangs in the hopes that they could trace them back to the organization.
The results were abysmal and people died — some of them were border agents.
The FBI is giving guns to the mentally ill to attack people then leaping in to save the day, cameras rolling. What a bunch of jerks.
Linking to an article from Business Insider, Assange conveyed one of the darker tendencies of Federal agents: encouragement.
In many cases, agents will seek out people who have somehow demonstrated radical views, and then coax them into plotting an act of terrorism – often providing weapons and money. Before the suspects can carry out their plans, though, they’re arrested.
Last March, The Intercept profiled 25-year-old Sami Osmakac, who was “broke and struggling with mental illness” when he became the target of an FBI sting operation. “The FBI provided all of the weapons seen in Osmakac’s martyrdom video,” The Intercept reported. “The bureau also gave Osmakac the car bomb he allegedly planned to detonate, and even money for a taxi so he could get to where the FBI needed him to go.”
Now, this leaves every sane individual with a number of questions left unanswered. First, if the sheriff believes it was impossible for Paddock to have acted alone, who helped him? And, second, what if the federal agents were in contact with him? Finally, why would Assange choose to tweet this information out now?
Aaron Rouse, the special agent in charge for the FBI’s Vegas investigation is likely the only one that knows the answers to the questions keeping many American up at night. He also doesn’t seem inclined to reveal them anytime soon.
During his recent statement before the press he seemed quite annoyed at some of the questions being asked and very reluctant to field any at all. It was almost as if he was ashamed.
You will find this interesting, it won’t be hard to do your own searches if you use the list of victims… Do your own fact checking… Nobodies opinion matters like your own!
~@ The Mandalay is behind the concrete wall… The ‘tarp moves in toward the police officers area’ …
One of the victims in Sunday’s Las Vegas mass shooting claims the onslaught felt like it was carried out by more than one person, and thinks he has the evidence to support it.
The Blast spoke with Rocky Palermo, who has 30-40 pieces of bullet shrapnel still inside his body after taking a .223 round to the pelvis. He says the bullet was inches from paralyzing or even killing him.
Palermo strongly believes there were between 3-5 active shooters during the attack because as he ran away from the initial gunfire, he describes bullets not only raining down, but flying horizontally at the crowd.
Palermo — an avid hunter familiar with guns and ballistics — says the different trajectories of gunfire was extremely evident, even in the midst of chaos.
He is skeptical of the information being given by authorities regarding Stephen Paddock being a “lone wolf” gunman and has a theory as to why cops don’t buy it.
Further, Palermo is questioning why certain exits out of the venue were suddenly closed off just before the shooting, but claims the same exits were open during the previous nights of the concert.
Palermo says he relayed his theory to the FBI during an interview while being discharged from the hospital, but has not heard any follow up since.
The “multiple shooter” theory has been rampantly discussed among conspiracy theorists since Sunday’s deadly massacre. The theorists believe audio and video from the shooting support their claims.
BTW, Rocky’s friends set up a GoFundMe to help cover medical and other expenses while he gets back on his feet.

From the very first moment of reading about and viewing the media material regarding the Las Vegas mass shooting, the entire SOTN staff was really struck by a specific occurrence.
We watched many videos of American country music singer Jason Aldean singing his last song — and then quickly and mysteriously disappearing from the stage when the shooting began. Who has not seen this by now?
Through it all, we were really bothered about the fact that:

Without Prejudice and Without Recourse
BREAKING BOMBSHELL: TONIGHT’S LIVE MFA UNDERGROUND SHOW WITH MFA – MARCH FOR AMERICA FOUNDER/CEO “SCOTT J. BINSACK” – “VEGAS SHOOTER DID NOT FIRE FIRST ROUNDS OF SHOTS/CNN EXCLUSIVE VIDEO PROVES NO INITIAL SHOTS FIRED FROM THE 32ND FLOOR OF MANDALAY BAY” Live Private MFA Underground Show 10/04/2017 With MFA – March For America Founder/CEO “Scott J Binsack”. Scott proves 100% no initial or secondary rounds of shots came from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Casino from Mandalay Bay Resort. He further goes into detail how clearly “Stephen Paddock” is a patsy and had nothing to do with this shooting!!
So here goes…. Especially to those of you saying to stop talking about this, stop making assumptions etc.
Call me crazy, call me dramatic, call me whatever you want. I’m posting this for those of us who were on the strip Sunday night, who know what we saw and what we were told by police officers, security guards, and even the local news when all of this madness started. And I am posting this in hopes of informing others who have believed everything they’ve seen on the news. If while leaving the Cosmopolitan, we had been told there was one shooting at the Mandalay Bay, Anthony and I would have not been worried for our lives and we would have continued to go out, knowing we weren’t headed to that particular area of the strip. But that’s not what we were told. We were told that there were 7 confirmed shooters, and confirmed deaths at multiple hotels. Including Bellagio, the Aria and New York New York. Being told this by a security guard, who then told us to go to the third floor for safety. However, Anthony says, “No Rikki. This is a very popular hotel, I don’t feel like the third floor of this popular hotel in public is the safest place. We’re going to try and get out of here right now.” Running back to our hotel next door, Vdara, we are told once again by police/security checking our id and room key, “yes multiple hotels effected. Go to your room and do not leave.” We then get to the room, immediately turn on the news and start watching out of our windows to figure out what is going on. The news also states, live, that the Bellagio had been effected and there was one confirmed death.
Now… skip ahead about an hour. The news is no longer stating anything about the other hotels effected. They say it is one person. Every bit of info that was being initially given to us was disappearing. We could physically see from our window view, fire alarms going off at the cosmopolitan, and multiple cop cars and ambulances pulling up there as well. We wanted more information about what was happening at these other hotels right next to us, and we weren’t getting it. And we still aren’t.
Monday morning I am of course telling my friends and family about our experience, and I was starting to really feel like I was crazy. Everyone was telling me there was only one shooter, and I just couldn’t understand what I had seen. Finally, other people like myself started speaking out. I was relieved to know that I wasn’t crazy, but now just as confused as to why the media is trying to hide this information. There are now videos and statements popping up all over the web, showing proof of other shooters and other effected hotels.
Why are they trying to hide this?! If for no other reason, think about being a family member of the others who died or were injured at these other hotels. They deserve the respect, and the truth as to what happened to their loved ones.
Now, can we please stop talking about Gun Control for just a few minutes, and figure out what is really going on here? Figure out the real motive of this incident, and inform people of the truth. Laws can be put in place for anything and everything. There will always be people who break them. And especially with all of the technology we have now days, it is not very hard to find anything you want. Whether it’s an illegal weapon, drugs, anything. Laws will always be broken. So let’s stop pretending this incident wouldn’t have happened if more laws were in place, but instead demand the truth about what really happened that night, and why? Don’t be so naive.
A few internet sleuths have taken matters into their own hands after the obvious disinformation campaign by the mainstream media surrounding the Las Vegas shooting. Mounting evidence of what looks like a false flag is worrying many. And once you read this, those fears will be shoved into overdrive.
On the surface, the tweet doesn’t say much. But how much can Mike Toke really say in a limited amount of characters? But what he does manage is enough to get anyone seeking the truth to follow all these leads and look into everything that the media and our government continues to hide from us. It’s what’s embedded in the tweet that counts.
Looking closely, the first thing you will notice is that the shooter, Stephen Paddock, had a pilot license and owned two planes. This is well-established fact. The tail number of one of those planes is N5343M, a Cirrus SR-20. You can see that this was owned by Paddock by going to the website Flightaware.com. But Paddock doesn’t own this plane anymore. It was grounded three years ago, and it’s now in the hands of none other than Volant LLC, which there is little information on.
However, Volant Associates is none other than a Department of Defense contractor. Meaning Paddock’s plane has been in the hands of the United States government for the past three years and grounded since – if Volant LLC is being used as a way to hide information. Considering what Volant Associates does, that wouldn’t be so far fetched. But the plane’s information is all easily verified here on Flightaware.com. It’s been in Roanoke, Virginia since April 25, 2014.
Volant’s describes it’s mission on their website as providing “the industry’s preeminent professionals to discriminating U.S. government and intelligence-and-defense-industry customers.”
The registration of this plane is also listed as “active” even though it hasn’t been flown in three years. Strange enough yet? Well, it gets even better. The FAA should have this same information. But they don’t. Their website shows that a different aircraft, a Cessna 152, maintains that tail number and it was last registered to a person in San Diego, California. The FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) is a government agency, and it appears that it has scrubbed this plane’s information. Now, why would they do that? Well, the plot still thickens.
There is little to be known about Volant LLC., in Roanoke, Virginia. A company big enough to have a plane should have a website, at least that would be the assumption. But a Google search netted very little information other than they provide “business services.” But Volant Associates is a completely different matter. That’s your defense contractor. And their website says they are located in Chantilly, VA, which wouldn’t be too far from Volant LLC. in Roanoke. And a quick Google search of that verifies that the two cities are only 219 miles apart. So is Volant LLC., a cover company for the defense contractor? Is this a coincidence?
For a list of all of the contracts between Volant LLC. and the government, click here. They have worked for the Obama Administration. Could Paddock’s plane have been used in other scandals, such as the Fast and Furious gun running scheme? Who knows, and at this point, we may never know.
What all this means is entirely speculation right now. But isn’t is strange that this information is being kept from the public, and those who seek the truth are stuck finding it on their own?

An undercover reporter has obtained footage showing Antifa organizers secretly plotting to lure conservatives into ‘kill zones’ and then shoot them with guns.
Radio host Steve Crowder recently went undercover to covertly film the domestic terrorist group. The disturbing footage, shown below, reveals how Antifa are planning the mass killing of conservatives in the coming months.
Gotslaves.com reports: Watch the video below and you’ll get a sense of where Antifa is headed. These people — all of whom are deranged, left-wing lunatics who have been radicalized by late-night TV and the mainstream media — have dedicated themselves to committing whatever violence is necessary to silence voices of reason across America. These people are also, of course, complete idiots: They accuse Ben Shapiro — a Jew — of being a Nazi, and they confuse capitalism with fascism. (They probably also think Princess Leia is a KKK member because she wears white robes with a hood.)
Hilariously, none of these people would last five seconds in a fight with a real patriot, by the way. Any concealed carry holder with a minimal training could easily defend themselves against these clumsy weirdos and gender-confused terroristas. Yet the truly disturbing part in all this is how Antifa lunatics believe they are bad-ass ninjas who can pull off a popular uprising against a well-armed citizenry. Honestly, watching these weaklings walk around on camera talking about knives and guns like they’re soldiers of fortune, I’m highly doubtful any of them have the grip strength to rack the slide on a Glock 21, much less engage in hand-to-hand combat with real men who are defending their country. As usual, Leftists confuse owning a weapon with the skill set of using a weapon. They probably also think buying a guitar makes them amazing musicians. (Which is why so many of them own guitars they can’t play…)
Despite their delusions, these left-wing lunatics are obviously quite serious (in their own minds) about committing violence against their intended targets… which, let’s face it, is anyone saying anything they don’t like. The Left is “tolerant,” you see. And inclusive, too. They’re so tolerant that they only murder those with whom they disagree. That’s “equality” in their twisted minds. And they’re being taught all this insane nonsense by all the usual left-wing TV hysteria pushers like Michael Moore or Whoopi Goldberg, both of whom have become an embarrassment to human reason.
The left-wing disconnect from reality has reached a whole new height of insanity
The Trump-hating Left has become so deranged and insanely stupid that the Mayor of San Juan in Puerto Rico recently condemned Trump for not helping with enough rescue supplies while standing in front of massive pallets of rescue supplies clearly visible in the background. (See photo, below.)
This is the total disconnect and delusion that the Left is now parroting on a daily basis, everywhere across the culture. The hysteria has reached such levels of insanity that many black people literally believe they are living in a nation that’s running active cotton-picking slave plantations, which is why one black woman in Texas recently decried all cotton products, claiming all cotton is derived from slaves! (No, I’m not even kidding… just stop and think about the mindless hysteria behind all this for a minute…)
Antifa members are too historically illiterate to realize they ARE the fascists
Antifa members, by the way, openly justify violence against anyone they hate by claiming their targets are “fascists” and thereby deserve to be murdered by any means necessary. This tactic, ironically, perfectly mirrors the mindless violence of actual fascists, whom Antifa claims to despise.
“These folks aren’t playing a game anymore,” Crowder explains. “This is serious violence.”
This is the new logic of the deranged, lunatic Left in America… the same Left that’s so disconnected from reality that they have no clue the KKK was run by Democrats, and Abraham Lincoln was a Republican. They also don’t realize that JFK praised Adolf Hitler and his actual fascism, which has served as a totalitarian blueprint for the Left ever since.
In the photo to the left, we see two police with drawn weapons while two civilians stroll by.
Wouldn’t the police tell them to stand back
In the picture above, the young couple looks terrified, but if you look in the background, you will see people in line getting food. There is an older couple strolling along; two women are in a kneeling position. Notice the woman on the left in line who has her hands on her hips. Seriously, these do not look like people that are in a sniper situation.
A very emotional female police officer from Puerto Rico’s police department in Guaynabo calls in to a U.S. spanish speaking radio station to tell listeners what is going on in Puerto Rico. The police woman is very upset, crying and sobbing often, and shares how the Mayor of San Juan is politicizing the situation and not offering help.
The call and video was recorded September 28th, and highlights the corruption within government within Puerto Rico and the Municipal authority of San Juan. The video is English closed captioned (hit “CC” option) and a transcript is below:
Radio Announcer: What is your name?
Police Caller: I cannot give my name because I work for Puerto Rico’s Police Department. I need to pass this information out because the stuff that is being brought from the U.S. is not being distributed. They are not allowing the Puerto Rican people to receive the donations.
Radio Announcer: What part of Puerto Rico are you calling us from right now?
Police Caller: I am right now in Guaynabo.
Radio Announcer 2: Wow.
Radio Announcer 3: But what information do you have? What have you seen?
Police Caller: The Mayor, Carmen Yulin, is not allowing anyone to distribute… We need… what Puerto Ricans need is that the U.S. armed forces come in and distribute the aid. And that they stop the governor, Rosello, and the mayor, Yulin, on doing what they are doing… It’s an abuse, it looks like communism, in our own island (sobbing)… (sobbing continues, inaudible translation due to cries)…
Police Caller (cont.): People are helping us, but they are not accepting it, they are not accepting anymore help supposedly: “they have to wait for the license, that there are no buses.” …Let me tell you something Boricuas (Puerto Ricans) are dying of hunger (crying continues) … This is a bureaucracy, everything has to be protocol, the lines are stretched. …We can only give one box of water per person (sobbing continues). …The medics here, people are dying, the hospitals are in crisis.
Police Caller (cont.): I am embarrassed, as a Boricua to work for Puerto Rico’s police and see that we cannot do anything. There are dozens and thousands and thousands of food and when people ask we cannot give anything away because [Mayor] Carmen Yulin says that we cannot take anything out; because everything is a soap opera, everything is a show and there have to be cameras here and there. ….Because you know they are just looking for votes for the upcoming years.
Radio Announcer 2: Wow
Police Caller: And the governor won’t move unless there is a camera behind him; [Mayor] Carmen Yulin won’t move unless there is a camera behind her. This is how we are living in Puerto Rico, meanwhile artists are giving money and the people of Florida are sending stuff, and I don’t know how many more people are helping because we have very limited communication, very limited, and we have no idea what’s going on outside; and the people who are sending stuff, they have to come in; they have to come to help Puerto Rico and distribute what is being wasted …because what else are we going to do? You tell me, what are we going to do?
Radio Announcer #2: Of course the desperation..
Radio Announcer #3: We are with our hearts broken listening to you describing this situation which is heartbreaking when we know that so many people are helping …this is a police officer speaking.
Police Caller: I’ve been for one hour and a half just trying to download an application because the phones that they give to us I cannot use them as a police officer due to security measures. But I need to speak for the people because the people are suffering. Because I, as a cop, and other partners are seeing it. A lot of people have been posting videos (sobbing – inaudible) …and no-one is paying attention.
Radio Announcer #3: We are truly sorry for this situation, we did not know that..
Police Caller: If Cuba and Venezuela want to help and we are grateful for that; and that the government denies their help, the government denies Cuba’s help. …That they reject Venezuela’s help, …Look for God’s sake! Tell me how is that possible, we need help.
Radio Announcer #3: We are going to send this message out so that it gets to where it needs to get to…
Police Caller: We want the U.S. to come in, that the strongest forces come in and take the governor out, he is not doing anything, he is just going around and around, …and everyone is like: “oh, look how nice, the governor, he is going in the mud, he is going in the water”, And where is it? Pardon the expression: WHERE IS THE FOOD?
Police Caller (cont.): Look, grab the food, grab the sausage can and take it to the families! Stop the show! The governor is just doing a show, is all a show. There are many mayors that are suffering because they cannot do anything for their people.
Radio Announcer #2: What are they doing with the food? Is it being kept in storage because they are not allowing to give it out?
Police Caller: They are not doing anything, and they tell the harbors (ports) that they cannot bring stuff anymore. If the U.S. government doesn’t get involved they will finish us. We are going to end up worse. …Worse than Cuba, Africa, or worse than Haiti. We are living in an era that you don’t want to see, people are desperate. The gasoline, people are already killing each other. Not to rob you, they are doing it so they can be the firsts to get food and take it to their families.
Police Caller (cont.): Do you know what it is when a woman approaches me and tells me “I don’t have any more.” “I don’t know what else to give my kids because I don’t have anymore.” “Water and crackers”!
Radio Announcer #1: Sweetie, thank you for calling us and using this medium to denounce this situation; and good thing that it was you who explained this so that people don’t think that we are making up stuff; because this has nothing to do with politics. This is a very serious situation.
Police Caller: Very Serious (sobbing continues)

Why are we constantly being told that Abraham Lincoln was the “greatest President ever”? I can tell you that the truth is quite different. In the book Lincoln Unmasked, by Thomas J. DeLorenzo, you will find a bounty of evidence that exposes Lincoln as a usurper, an occupier and a fraudulent “President”. He neither cared about eliminating slavery OR following the rule of law. He simply had one goal. Preserve the Union of States or at least what was left of them. He was bent on starting a war with the seceded states and forcing them by threat to “re-join” the Union of States, whether they like it or not. This was an act of war upon a set of sovereign nations, simply exercising their “Constitutional” right to be free. It’s actually an inherent NATURAL right of life.
As it was at the time, there were not enough states left IN the Union to create a quorum necessary to a cause. Therefore, the Constitution became null and void, the “United States” ceased to exist and Lincoln was NO LONGER “President” of ANYTHING! Therefore, every act by him to “preserve” anything was completely unsupported by any natural or Constitutional law. He had no right to declare himself “President” or start a war, undeclared and unauthorized by Congress, (if we assume as he did, that he had a Congress). If you still don’t believe;

Back in 2015 the libtard hack Bill Nye said this (from Weasel Zippers):
“Speaking to students at the University at Albany, Bill Nye the Science Guy said that a carbon tax was needed for the purpose of redistributing wealth.
“We need, dare I say it, a tax, or should I say a fee,” Nye purportedly said Wednesday, right before an anonymous student began recording.“It’s not just to be mean, it’s to redistribute wealth,” Nye said.
Nye went on to claim that instituting such a tax would drive innovation in more environmentally friendly ways.
“It will stimulate people investing in more energy efficient means. If you gotta pay a fee every time you make carbon monoxie and somone comes up with a more efficient car, you’ll use that car. Somebody comes up with a more efficient blender, you’ll use that blender. I mean, that’s just how it’s going to go.”
How much of that $37 million Nye deems is his do you think he will redistribute? If he’s like every other good little socialist, it will be a big fat ZERO.
From NY Post: Bill Nye is suing the Walt Disney Company and a host of its subsidiaries today for more than $37 million, alleging he didn’t receive his fair share of the net profits generated by his long-running series “Bill Nye the Science Guy.”
“Plaintiff is informed and believes and thereon alleges that as a direct and proximate result of the Defendants’ breach of fiduciary duty, Plaintiff has suffered damages in the amount of not less than Nine Million Three Hundred Fifty Thousand Five Hundred Sixty dollars (USD$9,350,565.00), the final amount to be proven at trial,” says the complaint, dropping some big bucks demands (read it here).
And then the big bucks get bigger, like three times bigger.
“Plaintiff is further informed and believes and thereon alleges that the Defendants, by breaching their fiduciary duties, enriched themselves, at the expense of the Plaintiff and the BNSG Owners, obtaining ill-gotten profits of not less than Twenty Eight Million Fifty One Thousand Six Hundred Ninety Five dollars (USD$28,051,695.00),” Nye figures in some math at Disney’s expense that alleges to be at his expense.
The 28-page suit, filed Thursday in Los Angeles Superior Court, says Nye received a check in April 2008 for $585,000 as his share of the net profits. However, a few months later, Buena Vista Television sent a second letter retracting its prior calculations. According to the second letter, Nye instead owed BTV $496,111.
Deadline has reached out to Disney for comment but has not heard back.
“Bill Nye the Science Guy” ran on PBS from 1994 to 1999 and also was syndicated to local stations. The show aired for 100 half-hour episodes spanning five seasons and was nominated for 23 Emmy Awards, winning 19.
The suit that Nye and his lawyers put before the court contends that “the disturbing size of the supposed ‘accounting error,’ coupled with the seeming indifference of both BVT and WDC, left Nye suspicious of the veracity of the accounting.”
Nye claims he stopped receiving royalty or participation payments as of July 22, 2008, with the suit stating accountants insisted that he first repay the amount allegedly owed from the “overpayment.”
Formally, Nye’s action claims fraudulent concealment, breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing, and various accounting issues.
On the attorney front, Nye is represented by Burbank’s Hamrick & Evans LLP.
Via Local Florida News outlet, the article I posted yesterday about Dutch banker Ronald Bernard was a case of similar names but NOT correct… According to local news via the Palm Beac Post, the mans FULL name was Ronald Bernard Fernandez and obviously NOT the same man who exposed satanic ritual abuse, among elite bankers…
A Florida man who became lost while walking along a nature trail in Florida was found dead on Sunday.
Ronald Bernard Fernandez, 61, of Sebring, was walking along a nature trail at Sun ‘n Lake of Sebring when he called Highlands County Sheriff’s Office dispatchers to report that he had gotten lost, according to a Highlands County Sheriff’s Office news release.
Fernandez called 911 several times, telling dispatchers his cellphone service kept disconnecting and that he wanted to conserve his phone’s battery. Rescue crews used pings from his cellphone while trying to locate him, but they showed Fernandez was moving despite being told to stay in one spot.
The release said a search involving air units from Highlands and Polk counties, more than a dozen deputies and multiple vehicles from multiple law enforcement agencies ended after a Polk County helicopter found Fernandez face-down in shallow water.
Fernandez’s cause of death has yet to be determined by a medical examiner, but the sheriff’s office cites heat, humidity and dehydration as possible factors in his death.

Following the recent clashes between the alt-right and the group antifa, some libertarians have debated which group they should support. The answer is simple: neither.
The alt-right and its leftist opponents are two sides of the same authoritarian coin.
The alt-right elevates racial identity over individual identity.
The obsession with race leads them to support massive government interference in the economy in order to benefit members of the favored race.
They also favor massive welfare and entitlement spending, as long as it functions as a racial spoils system.
Some prominent alt-right leaders even support abortion as a way of limiting the minority population.
No one who sincerely supports individual liberty, property rights, or the right to life can have any sympathy for this type of racial collectivism.
Antifa, like all Marxists, elevates class identity over individual identity.
Antifa supporters believe government must run the economy because otherwise workers will be exploited by greedy capitalists.
This faith in central planning ignores economic reality, as well as the reality that in a free market employers and workers voluntarily work together for their mutual benefit.
It is only when government intervenes in the economy that crony capitalists have the opportunity to exploit workers, consumers, and taxpayers.
Sadly, many on the left confuse the results of the “mixed economy” with free markets.
Ironically, the failure of the Keynesian model of economic authoritarianism, promoted by establishment economists like Paul Krugman, is responsible for the rise of the alt-right and antifa.
Despite a recent (and likely short-lived) upturn in some sectors of the economy, many Americans continue to struggle with unemployment and a Federal Reserve-caused eroding standard of living.
History shows that economic hardship causes many to follow demagogues offering easy solutions and convenient scapegoats.
Left-wing demagogues scapegoat businesses and the “one percent,” ignoring the distinction between those who made their fortunes serving consumers and those who enriched themselves by manipulating the political process.
Right-wing demagogues scapegoat immigrants and minorities, ignoring how these groups suffer under the current system and how they are disproportionally impacted by policies like the war on drugs and police militarization.
As the Keynesian-Krugman empire of big government and fiat currency collapses, more people will be attracted to authoritarianism, leading to an increase in violence.
The only way to ensure the current system is not replaced with something even worse is for those of us who know the truth to work harder to spread the ideas of liberty.
While we should be willing to form coalitions with individuals of good will across the political spectrum, we must never align with anyone promoting violence as a solution to social and economic problems.
We must also oppose any attempts to use the violence committed by extremists as a justification for expanding the police state or infringing on free speech.
Laws against hate speech set a dangerous precedent for censorship of speech unpopular with the ruling elite and the deep state.
Libertarians have several advantages in the ideological battle over what we will replace the Keynesian welfare model with.
First, we do not need to resort to scapegoating and demagoguing, as we have the truth about the welfare-warfare state and the Federal Reserve on our side.
We also offer a realistic way to restore prosperity.
But our greatest advantage is that, while authoritarianism divides people by race, class, religion, or other differences, the cause of liberty unites all who seek peace and prosperity.

These tyrants just can’t let it go. They can’t make their case to the jury to find these men guilty so they are going to try them a third time and push other defendants’ court date back further into the future!
Still, they were released from prison on Tuesday evening, but discovered on Wednesday that the government, who could not make their case to the jury, want to try them again.
“Surprised? No. Disappointed? Yes,” said Parker’s lawyer, Jess Marchese. “It’s clear at this point the prosecution is taking this personally now.”
Marchese said it was unprofessional and unnecessary. “This is a business,” he said. “And there’s no need for emotion in a business.”
It’s actually pretty cowardly what Mr. Myhre has been involved in, in attempts to bring in situation and conduct that occurred well after Bundy Ranch against defendants to make his case, as well as being just fine with holding defendants up to five years without worrying about violating their right to a speedy trial.
Consider that Mr. Myhre is the same man who would not include the men found guilty in the first trial in the retrial for the charges they were not found guilty on because of time and expenses, but he will not let these men go to save money and time and actually give the other men their day in court in a timely manner.
AZ Central reports:
The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Las Vegas confirmed Wednesday it will go back to court for the third time in an attempt to convict two men accused of taking up arms against federal agents.
Less than 24 hours earlier, a jury had acquitted two standoff defendants and dismissed the most serious charges against two others. Now federal prosecutors say they will retry the men next month on outstanding weapons and assault charges.
The move pushes back the trials for 11 other defendants in the 2014 Bundy Ranch standoff, including Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and his sons Ammon and Ryan Bundy, who have spent 18 months in prison while awaiting their court date.
Parker and Drexler face one count each of assaulting a federal officer and carrying a firearm in the commission of a crime. Parker faces two additional counts of using a firearm to threaten a federal officer.
Nevermind that the keeping and bearing of arms is a right protected under the Second Amendment.
Nevermind that the position of the men and their weapons was a defensive position in the face of hundreds of armed, tactically trained federal agents and snipers with their weapons targeting innocent Americans who were simply engaged in protesting the lawless actions of the Bureau of Land Management.
To demonstrate just how crooked Judge Gloria Navarro’s court is and how in lock step it is with the tyrannical central government it works for, even AZ Central saw what was going on.
Navarro’s rulings, aimed at trying to avoid jury nullification, severely limited defense arguments. Jury nullification occurs when a jury returns a verdict based on its shared belief rather than on the evidence in a case.
Navarro barred defendants from discussing why they traveled thousands of miles to join protesters at the Bundy Ranch. She did not allow them to testify about perceived abuses by federal authorities during the cattle roundup that might have motivated them to participate.
Navarro also restricted defendants from raising constitutional arguments, or mounting any defense based on their First Amendment rights to free speech and their Second Amendment rights to bear arms. In her rulings, Navarro said those were not applicable arguments in the case.
Federal officials did not face the same restrictions. To show defendants were part of a conspiracy, they referenced events that happened months, or years, after the standoff.
Federal prosecutors, led by Myhre, argued in court the case wasn’t about the First or Second Amendments; that the Constitution doesn’t give people the right to threaten federal officers.
And the Constitution doesn’t give the right for members of an unconstitutional agency to threaten American citizens either, Mr. Myhre.
Because of Myhre’s and Navarro’s reckless and lawless behavior, now Drexler and Parker will have to face another trial and the Bundys and reporter Pete Santilli will have their court date delayed well into October or possibly November.
And why? Because for Myhre this is not about justice, it’s personal. That was demonstrated in his attacks on the defendants and their attorneys.
Indeed, it is personal, but it should be about justice.
There are still 11 defendants who remain incarcerated for the past 19 months without a trial and the court’s actions continue to infringe on the rights of these men.
“Those guys want their day in court,” said Marchese.
As for at least one of the defendants awaiting trial, Pete Santilli’s attorney, Chris Rasmussen has filed a motion for pre-trial release.
Sadly, I can tell you they aren’t going to grant it. They haven’t done so thus far. There’s no way the government is going to give an inch here. They have too much to lose.

Ronald Bernard, the elite Dutch banker who exposed the financial industry Illuminati in a series of TV interviews, has been found dead in Florida. He was
Bernard, who was 61-year-old, had been living in Sebring, Florida for the past year after marrying an American citizen. The Highland County Sheriff’s Office said that Ronald Bernard called 911 at 3:46 p.m. saying he got lost after leaving for a walk at 1 p.m. on the nature trail on the west end of Sun ‘n Lake in Sebring.
More than a dozen deputies along with K-9 units, air units from Highlands and Polk counties, four-wheelers from HCSO and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission searched for Ronald Bernard. “The terrain was very difficult, and searchers were at times in waist deep water as they tried to zero in on Fernandez’s location,” the sheriff’s office said.
Deputies pinged his cell phone but it kept showing different locations and Bernard called back several times — he said his life was in danger — but he kept moving despite being told to stay put, deputies said. The last contact dispatchers had with the former banker was at 6:13 p.m.
At 8:24 p.m., the Polk County helicopter spotted Bernard, who was face down in shallow water about 300 yards away from the last known location of his cell phone and 1.8 miles from the entrance to the trail at Sun ‘n Lake Boulevard and Balboa Boulevard.
The cause of death will be determined by the medical examiner.
Ronald Bernard blew the whistle on occult practices and child sacrifice among banking industry elites, describing his experiences in a gut-wrenching TV interview that went viral earlier this year. Sharing explicit details about the way the Illuminati uses child sacrifice to test and blackmail its members, he said he was asked to sacrifice a child at a party.
“I was warned off when I got into this – don’t do this unless you can put your conscience 100% in the freezer. I heard myself laugh at it back then, but it wasn’t a joke at all.”
“I was training to become a psychopath and I failed.”
Describing the period his “freezer began to malfunction”, Ronald also told stories about crashing national economies and bankrupting companies. These actions led to suicides and destruction – successes worth celebrating, according to his banker colleagues.

The 2014 Bunkerville Standoff saw over 200 armed federal agents aim their guns at American citizens who had gathered in support of rancher Cliven Bundy. This shocking footage includes never before seen video clips from BLM dash and body cams.
I would be glad to credit whoever put this footage together, but since it was leaked video I’m not aware of the original creator. If any of you know, you are welcome to pass the info on to me.

Under Section 107 of the Copyright Act 1976, allowance is made for “fair use” for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research. Fair use is a use permitted by copyright statute that might otherwise be infringing. Non-profit, educational or personal use tips the balance in favor of fair use.
Yesterday the jury in the trial of four men accused of offenses related to a standoff near the Bundy ranch in Bunkerville, Nevada sent a resounding message to prosecutors and the judge in the case by returning absolutely no Guilty verdicts.
Instead, jurors found Ricky Lovelien and Steven Stewart Not Guilty of all 10 charges against them. Jurors found Scott Drexler and Eric Parker Not Guilty of most charges against them, with the jury undecided on four charges against Parker and two charges against Drexler.
“There was not a dry eye in the room, except the prosecutors’, who were steaming mad, and the judge’s. I was literally balling my eyes out,” said FIJA Advisory Board member Dr. Roger Roots, who was in the courtroom when the verdicts were delivered.
This is the second trial for all the defendants. They cannot be retried on those charges for which jurors delivered Not Guilty verdicts. However, they can be retried on any charges for which jurors failed to reach a verdict. It is not clear yet whether the prosecution will continue jury shopping in order to find jurors who will convict.
Demonstrators were publicly visible outside the courthouse in recent weeks, including several who educated the general public about jurors’ right of conscientious acquittal by jury nullification. While FIJA previously pointed out that the Malheur Refuge occupation acquittals were probably not the result of jury nullification, we have been keeping an eye on other related trials, such as this one, for potential conscientious acquittals.
According to Dr. Roots, “This was almost certainly jury nullification. I see no other realistic interpretation. I say that because the defense pretty much did not put on a case, and in fact, were not allowed to put on a case.”
Among other things, the judge forbade the defense from many lines of inquiry including
● how well-armed Bureau of Land Management (BLM) agents were or how frightened defendants were of a potential attack,
● any mention of bullying or physically violent behavior of BLM agents leading up to the protest (though the prosecution was allowed to bring up things that happened months beforehand),
● any reference whatsoever to Constitutional First or Second Amendment rights, and
● any testimony from five prospective defense witnesses, whose testimony Judge Navarro pre-screened outside the presence of the jury and ultimately rejected.
Navarro cut off defendant Eric Parker mid-testimony and kicked him off the stand for supposedly breaking the rules laid down by the judge. At the time he was cut off, he was rebutting a statement made by a prosecution witness claiming that he looked in a particular direction. That testimony was allowed, but Parker was not allowed to testify that he looked up and to the right. After Not only that statement, but his entire testimony was stricken from the record. Jurors were ordered to disregard all of his testimony, leaving him completely voiceless in his own defense.
Defense attorney Jess Marchese confirmed after speaking with jurors that the treatment of the defense factored into their decisions.
“The court’s restrictive limitations on the defense were overtly aimed at stopping jury nullification, and yet the irony is that they absolutely fueled it,” Roots said.
(MR) — Abby Martin sits down with Peter Joseph, the founder of the Zeitgeist Movement, to discuss his most recent book, ‘The New Human Rights Movement’ and his urgent call for global activists to replace the violent oppression that defines our economic order.
We’re revolutionizing the news industry, but we need your help! Click here to get started.
Founded in 2008, the Zeitgeist Movement is “a global sustainability activist movement presenting the case for the needed transition out of our current unsustainable economic model and into a new sustainable socioeconomic paradigm based on using the best that science and technology have to offer to maximize human, animal and environmental well being in accordance with the natural world.” The movement utilizes a network of regional chapters, teams, events, charity work and media to conduct community based activism and increase awareness.
Having a background in advertising and equity trading has lent to an informed and unique perspective on capitalism in the United States. According to Peter, without advertising, a necessary piece to our consumption based economy, “you wouldn’t have people aspiring to things that are highly irrational.” Our susceptibility to advertising is written into our biology, it is a matter of social inclusion. We identify by how others see us and therefore desire things that others have and desire, causing this need for material things to spread like a virus. Advertising thus manipulates this primal biological human desire to belong, in order to make a profit.
A false sense of progress has emerged from our hypercapitalistic society— an abundance of production and ownership is perceived as a sign of progress despite it being at the detriment of human psychology and the environment. The term “cultural violence” applies directly to this manipulation of human psychology for the benefit of the economy. Cultural violence helps justify structural violence so that it feels “right” and acceptable.
Capitalism supports the destruction of the environment and promotes significant structural violence, creating an ingroup-outgroup of those that can afford desired goods and those that cannot. We see this magnified in today’s culture with a sitting U.S. President immersed in a lavish lifestyle that has been paraded through and praised by the media for years, a President that profits off the primal desire of humans to need and want material goods in order to belong. Advertising and the flaunting of material goods can barely be ignored in U.S. culture today.
This ingroup-outgroup phenomenon of material desire has been magnified to the extent of normalizing control of the economy by the wealthy and elite when, in reality, the economy should function to benefit and provide for all Americans. However, a system controlled by the rich lacks the sympathy to function in this way as profits remain the sole focus without a critical eye questioning why the have nots are unable to have.
Abby and Peter go on to discuss the purpose and current state of the stock market, a system that creates profit for the rich and absolutely no material goods or other benefits to society at large, the concept of debt throughout the world, Wall Street’s covert control over U.S. politics, the ability for automation to free humans from labor, what he advocates to save the planet from catastrophe and more.
(Washington, DC) — Judicial Watch announced that on August 8, 2017, D.C. District Court Judge Amit P. Mehta ordered the State Department “to search the state.gov e-mail accounts of Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills, and Jacob Sullivan,” former aides of Hillary Clinton during her tenure as Secretary of State. The State Department is ordered to search in those accounts “for records responsive to [Judicial Watch’s] March 4, 2015, FOIA [Freedom of Information Act] request.” (A separate Judicial Watch FOIA lawsuit first broke open the Clinton email scandal.)
Judge Mehta described Judicial Watch’s Clinton Benghazi FOIA lawsuit as “a far cry from a typical FOIA case. Secretary Clinton used a private e-mail server, located in her home, to transmit and receive work-related communications during her tenure as Secretary of State.”
[I]f an e-mail did not involve any state.gov user, the message would have passed through only the Secretary’s private server and, therefore, would be beyond the immediate reach of State. Because of this circumstance, unlike the ordinary case, State could not look solely to its own records systems to adequately respond to [Judicial Watch’s] demand.
[The State Department] has not, however, searched the one records system over which it has always had control and that is almost certain to contain some responsive records: the state.gov e-mail server. If Secretary Clinton sent an e-mail about Benghazi to Abedin, Mills, or Sullivan at his or her state.gov e-mail address, or if one of them sent an e-mail to Secretary Clinton using his or her state.gov account, then State’s server presumably would have captured and stored such an e-mail. Therefore, State has an obligation to search its own server for responsive records.
State has offered no assurance that the three record compilations it received [from Secretary Clinton and her aides], taken together, constitute the entirety of Secretary Clinton’s e-mails during the time period relevant to Plaintiff’s FOIA Request. Absent such assurance, the court is unconvinced “beyond material doubt” that a search of the state.gov accounts of Abedin, Mills and Sullivan is “unlikely to produce any marginal return.”
Accordingly, the court finds that State has not met its burden of establishing it performed an adequate search in response to Plaintiff’s FOIA Request and orders State to conduct a supplemental search of the state.gov e-mail accounts of Abedin, Mills, and Sullivan.
“This major court ruling may finally result in more answers about the Benghazi scandal – and Hillary Clinton’s involvement in it – as we approach the attack’s fifth anniversary,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “It is remarkable that we had to battle both the Obama and Trump administrations to break through the State Department’s Benghazi stonewall. Why are Secretary Tillerson and Attorney General Sessions wasting taxpayer dollars protecting Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration?”
Judicial Watch asked a federal court to compel the Trump State Department to undertake a thorough search of all emails of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton regarding the terrorist attack on Benghazi, including those of Clinton’s closest advisors. Judicial Watch also specifically asked the court to compel the agency to produce all records of communications between Clinton and top aide Jake Sullivan relating to Ambassador Susan Rice’s appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press” the Sunday following the 2012 Benghazi massacre.
The State Department has until September 22, 2017, to update the court on the status of the supplemental search and production of additional emails to Judicial Watch.
On May 6, 2015, Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit when the State Department failed to respond to a March 4, 2015, FOIA request (Judicial Watch, Inc. v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:15-cv-00692)), seeking:
