Government agents ‘directly involved’ in most high-profile US terror plots

Nearly all of the highest-profile domestic terrorism plots in the United States since 9/11 featured the “direct involvement” of government agents or informants, a new report says.

Some of the controversial “sting” operations “were proposed or led by informants”, bordering on entrapment by law enforcement. Yet the courtroom obstacles to proving entrapment are significant, one of the reasons the stings persist.

The lengthy report, released on Monday by Human Rights Watch, raises questions about the US criminal justice system’s ability to respect civil rights and due process in post-9/11 terrorism cases. It portrays a system that features not just the sting operations but secret evidence, anonymous juries, extensive pretrial detentions and convictions significantly removed from actual plots.

“In some cases the FBI may have created terrorists out of law-abiding individuals by suggesting the idea of taking terrorist action or encouraging the target to act,” the report alleges.

Out of the 494 cases related to terrorism the US has tried since 9/11, the plurality of convictions – 18% overall – are not for thwarted plots but for “material support” charges, a broad category expanded further by the 2001 Patriot Act that permits prosecutors to pursue charges with tenuous connections to a terrorist act or group.

In one such incident, the initial basis for a material-support case alleging a man provided “military gear” to al-Qaida turned out to be waterproof socks in his luggage.

Several cases featured years-long solitary confinement for accused terrorists before their trials. Some defendants displayed signs of mental incapacity. Jurors for the 2007 plot to attack the Fort Dix army base, itself influenced by government informants, were anonymous, limiting defense counsel’s ability to screen out bias.

Human Rights Watch’s findings call into question the post-9/11 shift taken by the FBI and other law enforcement agencies toward stopping terrorist plots before they occur. While the vast majority of counterterrorism tactics involved are legally authorized, particularly after Congress and successive administrations relaxed restrictions on law enforcement and intelligence agencies for counterterrorism, they suggest that the government’s zeal to protect Americans has in some cases morphed into manufacturing threats. …

I put this in the “autism” category because of the inability of the author to follow the logical progression back to the most extensively documented, researched and debunked piece of BS ever to come out of ANY national government or journalism establishment in history, that being 9/11 itself, the gold standard against which all future corruption, deception and psychological warfare must be judged.  Seriously people, the verdict is in.  All that remains is for the professional liars to casually admit it in passing so as to normalize it in the public mind, long after the most recent batch of homeless cannon fodder is too destitute and intoxicated to raise a whimper.   It’s not enough to enslave us you see, we have to embrace the tyranny and fight for our right to be slaves.  It’s our new national identity.

The same autism label could be applied to the government agents themselves who seem oblivious to the broader consequences of their actions in undermining the constitution they swore an oath to uphold.    I know we’re all supposed to be automatons in the big machine to make the trains run on time, but it might be useful to act like sentient beings at times.  We do have sufficient gray matter, but it seems the will to resist big brother is being beaten out of us at a very early age.  Probably has something to do with “money”, which itself is in competition with 9/11 for the nobel prize for fraud.

It seems the devil has a sense of humor.

Ukraine: A National IQ Test for the USA

Dear fellow American:

Do you remember that our government liedusinto a war in Iraq?

Do you remember that that didn’t turn out very well?

Do you remember that the U.S. government came really close to lying us  into a war in Syria?

Or that the mainstream media played a big part in both wars  … and apologized for their horrible coverage?

So why do you now believe – without any investigation or evidence – the American government and media now saying that Putin is guilty for the shootdown of the Malaysian plane?

The mainstream media – and large gatekeeper “alternative” media – are ALWAYS pro-war.

While the Soviet Union was an awful place – where dissenters were routinely murdered, imprisoned, or sent on 1-way trips to the insane asylum -  American politicians and press have exaggerated the dangers coming from the Soviet Union and Russia for decades.

Do you remember that wars are often started by government lies about the enemy … and that blowing up things and falsely blaming it on the enemy is the oldest trick in the book?

Do you remember … anything?

US Business Primary Victims of Allegedly anti-Russian Sanctions

Two giant U.S. business groups – the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and National Association of Manufacturers – ran ads in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and Washington Post protesting sanctions against Russia.  These are not do-good political groups … they are conservative, hard-nosed pro-business groups.

The New York Times reports today:

American business groups have objected to unilateral sanctions, arguing that they would only hurt domestic businesses while their European competitors swooped in.

The National Association of Manufacturers said it “is disappointed that the U.S. is fundamentally extending sanctions in increasingly unilateral ways that will undermine U.S. commercial engagement and reduce the effectiveness of the measures imposed.”

Zero Hedge notes that the sanctions don’t seem to have hurt Russia much:

[The U.S. has] underperformed Russia by almost 20% since unleashing the first set of sanctions and sell recommendations ….

U.S. News and World Report pointed out in April:

Sanctioning Russia’s energy sector is a bad idea that will only marginally hurt Russia ….

Russia is the world’s third largest oil producer, and U.S. or E.U. sanctions against Russia will dramatically lower the global supply, thus raising global prices.

Bloomberg also reports that American power plants are “desperately” turning to Russia for their coal.

And sanctioning Russia has also pushed Russia to bypass US-controlled oil and gas systems altogether, and pushed Russia, China and Iran closer together.

The Wall Street Journal reports that – according to a new study – sanctions against Iran cost the U.S. as much as $175.3 billion in lost export opportunities over 18 years…

Once again we are faced with the question of whether the US government is controlled by idiots or by traitors.   The technocrats that the politicians consult on such issues are college educated professionals.  They are lobbied by or “retired from” transnational corporations which have already moved most of their investments elsewhere.  What do you think?

Ukraine air traffic controller suggests Kiev military shot down passenger plane

ETN received information from an air traffic controller in Kiev on Malaysia Airlines flight MH17.

This Kiev air traffic controller is a citizen of Spain and was working in the Ukraine. He was taken off duty as a civil air-traffic controller along with other foreigners immediately after a Malaysia Airlines passenger aircraft was shot down over the Eastern Ukraine killing 295 passengers and crew on board.

The air traffic controller suggested in a private evaluation and basing it on military sources in Kiev, that the Ukrainian military was behind this shoot down. Radar records were immediately confiscated after it became clear a passenger jet was shot down.

Military air traffic controllers in internal communication acknowledged the military was involved, and some military chatter said they did not know where the order to shoot down the plane originated from.

Obviously it happened after a series of errors, since the very same plane was escorted by two Ukrainian fighter jets until 3 minutes before it disappeared from radar.

Radar screen shots also show an unexplained change of course of the Malaysian Boeing. The change of course took the aircraft directly over the Eastern Ukraine conflict region. …

Fifty Years of the Deep State

Today, Nov 22, 2013, is the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. About 6 years ago, quite by accident, I took a passing interest in the assassination of JFK. My research into the assassination of JFK took me on a path into the dark underbelly of the CIA, and from there, I traced a web of criminality that ran throughout the huge sections of federal government, the political power structure, and the business interests that control our country. As I researched more, I learned that the criminal network behind JFK’s assassination did not retire after his killing. Instead, the need to cover up past crimes has motivated them to commit more crimes in a never ending cycle that continues to this present day. I have tracked this criminal network through time, and I have learned that this cabal has been the most significant political force in the United States for the last 50 years. Yet most people don’t have any idea that it exists.

My research project has grown to be a major interest in my life. I have a total of 180 books on the topics of the JFK assassination and the ensuing actions of the criminal cabal that seized control of our government. 70 of these books I have read cover to cover, and the rest I have either read a particular section or skimmed. I have dozens and dozens of books on my “to read” list, as I am continually researching different strands of government criminality. In addition to reading books, I have spent countless hours doing research on the internet.

I now have a profound understanding of the dark forces that control how politics in our country really work. 50 years ago a network of criminals took control of our government, and they have not let go until the present day. I cannot passively accept living in a country where the democracy has been overthrown, yet I cannot help but feel helpless against powerful forces that have been systematically killing their opposition for decades.

In my desire to heal our democracy, I have searched for answers as to how the powerless can confront the powerful. When confronted with evil that they could not prevent, Quakers have a tradition of bearing witness, so that this evil does not pass unnoted. On this 50th anniversary of the Coup d’état known as the JFK assassination, this document is my attempt to bear witness to the crimes of the last 50 years in my hope that, in my own small way, my voice can help repair our country.

As I have studied the hidden history of the United States for the last 50 years, I have not only learned of criminal networks embedded within our government, I also have learned the stories of many, many honest Americans who have fought to save our country. These unsung heroes of democracy have fought courageously to save the soul of our country. These Americans have risked their careers and their lives so that our dreams of freedom and democracy would not die.


This document is dedicated to the hundreds and hundreds of Americans who have paid with their lives the ultimate price of confronting the cabal embedded within our government.

Its most important source of power is our refusal to believe it exists.

US Congress Manuvering to Enter Military Alliance with Ukraine

The U.S. Congress passed in two readings a Russian aggression prevention bill that provides major non-NATO ally status for Ukraine, Georgia, and Moldova (during the period in which each of such countries meets specified criteria) for purposes of the transfer or possible transfer of defense articles or defense services. The bill was submitted to the competent commission for being prepared for the final reading, APA reports, quoting the official website of the U.S. Congress.

The bill directs President Barack Obama to increase U.S. Armed Forces interactions with the armed forces of Ukraine, Georgia, Moldova, Azerbaijan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, and Serbia; and U.S and NATO security assistance to such states. Armenia is not included in the list.

The bill also amends the Natural Gas Act to apply the expedited application and approval process for natural gas exports to World Trade Organization members, and urges the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), the Trade and Development Agency, the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC), the World Bank Group, and the European Bank for Reconstruction to promote assistance to Ukraine, Georgia, and Moldova in order to exploit natural gas and oil reserves and to develop alternative energy sources.

The document prohibits any federal department or agency from taking any action that recognizes Russian Federation sovereignty over Crimea or otherwise endorses the Russian Federation’s illegal annexation of Crimea, and directs the Secretary of State to strengthen democratic institutions, the independent media, and political and civil society organizations in countries of the former Soviet Union; and increase educational and cultural exchanges with countries of the former Soviet Union.

Apparently we have to check the media in Azerbaijan to find out what’s going on in Washington.  It’s no wonder, as usual congress is being led around on a leash, this time straight to catastrophe.

NY Politicians Scramble to Keep 9/11 Initiative Off the Ballot

Two weeks ago we had the satisfaction of being present for the submission of 67,000 signatures calling for a ballot measure to require the City of New York to investigate the collapse of WTC 7. A week later, as word of the campaign spread, Mayor Bill de Blasio made his position known, calling our efforts “insensitive” and “inappropriate”, and saying that he would work with the City Council to keep it from appearing on the ballot.

Now we need your help to fight back. Already, the Mayor and City Council Speaker are moving to have the City Council vote down our proposal so that it does not appear before the voters. But we can override their veto by submitting another 33,000 signatures on September 4th. So far the team has gathered 13,000 signatures, but to reach 33,000 we must raise $28,000 more by the end of next week.

Please donate what you can today so that we will have enough funds to finish the job we started. With all eyes on us, it is imperative we submit the second petition, or we will have little chance of appearing on the ballot this November.

Visit HighRiseSafetyNYC.org/donate to make your contribution.

We thank you for digging deep at this important juncture in our efforts, and we are grateful for the generosity that so many of you have shown already.

Obviously this is a national issue and deserves national funding.  It’s really about mass child abuse.  Kids are being fed a brazen lie so they’ll sacrifice their bodies fighting a phantom on some distant battlefield.  We need them home to overthrow the reign of al  qaeda in washington.
