Forgotten FBI Anti-Terrorism Entrapment Debacles – James Bovard

Posted by M. C. Fox on October 18, 2018

A Justice Department inquiry found that prosecutors failed to turn over more than 100 documents to defense attorneys during the trial, including a letter written by a convict who served time with Hmimissa that stated that the star witness had bragged about “how he lied to the FBI” on the terror-cell case

The owner of the limousine company that killed 20 people in New York last weekend was an FBI informant who helped carry out two big entrapment operations against Muslims after 9/11. Prior to being recruited by the FBI, he was caught helping people cheat on DMV tests.  Before that, he was arrested for murder in Pakistan but escaped after someone bribed police.  FBI officially permits its informants to commit 5000+ crimes a year. But running an illegal limousine service that kills 20 people was probably not pre-approved. Actually, the FBI provided luxury cars to help get this business started in 2008.

Here’s a piece I did 14 years ago on FBI and Justice Department entrapment and other debacles in the first years of the War on Terror.

On May 7, the FBI arrested Brandon Mayfield, an Oregon lawyer, for his alleged involvement in the Madrid train bombings of March 11 that killed 191 and left 2,000 wounded. A U.S. counterterrorism official (almost certainly an FBI or Justice Department official) told Newsweek that Mayfield’s fingerprint was an “absolutely incontrovertible match” to a copy of the fingerprint found on a bag of bomb detonators near the scene of the Madrid attack. News of Mayfield’s arrest provided alarming evidence that Americans were involved in international conspiracies to slaughter civilians around the globe, and he was informed that he could face the death penalty for his crimes.

Why Nobody Trusts the FBI… and that’s a good thing | The Daily Bell

Posted by M. C. Fox on October 8, 2018

More recently the FBI spent three years covering up evidence that they sent snipers to surround Bundy Ranch. They conspired with the Bureau of Land Management to suppress evidence favorable to the Bundy’s.

The FBI also performs warrantless searches of computers using paid informants on The Geek Squad.

By Joe Jarvis

When the FBI came out with a report on Hillary Clinton weeks before the 2016 election, Democrats were livid.

But so were Republicans… The report said that even though she had committed a crime by negligently using a personal computer for state business, she would not be charged.

Democrats later cheered the FBI as the Mueller Probe began investigating Trump. Investigations are the same thing as a guilty verdict, right?

And Republicans fumed when it surfaced that two agents exchanged anti-Trump text messages. They even discussed ways to subvert the presidential election and choose the winner!

And now Democrats are back to accusing the FBI of being a partisan tool used by whoever is in power. That’s because an FBI investigation could not prove a 36-year-old sexual assault accusation true.

Clearly, no one feels super confident in the FBI. And of course, we shouldn’t. They’re sketchy as all hell. Read the rest of this entry »

Actress Ellen Barkin: Trump Should Be ‘Removed… Not Just from Office’

Posted by M. C. Fox on October 1, 2018

The Hollywood/Progressive position succinctly stated.

Barkin is not in jail because…maybe the FIB/DOJ aren’t all that offended.

Lucky for Trump is isn’t as easy as in 1963.

Actress Ellen Barkin took to Twitter on Monday and suggested that it wouldn’t be enough to remove President Donald Trump from office.

“this man should be removed…and not just from office,” Ellen Barkin said of President Trump. The Animal Kingdom star was reacting to a video that showed President Trump demanding that CNN reporter Kaitlan Collins ask questions about the newly minted trade deal between the U.S., Mexico, and Canada.

Defeat the Deep State – Antiwar.com Original

Posted by M. C. Fox on September 13, 2018

This isn’t about Trump. The stakes are much higher than the fate of his presidency and political fortunes. It’s about preserving what’s left of our old republic.

ie battling the military/industrial/congressional/bankster complex that wants to build an empire by assassination, invasion and regime change.

Gee Wally, that sounds a lot like John McCain.

…The bottom line is that the intelligence services of the United States, and top officials of the FBI, have indeed launched a regime change operation comparable to the dozens carried out by these very same spooks over the years from Latin America to the Middle East. Like most of these campaigns, it’s a multilateral effort, with the intelligence services of at least three “allied” countries involved. Co-authored with the Clintonistas, the Russia-gate hoax is their invention: it was the perfect pretext to conduct surveillance on a rival presidential campaign. For all the talk of “collusion,” the real colluders were the Obama administration and the Clinton campaign organization who utilized the British “former” MI6 agent, Christopher Steele, and his infamous dossier. This fake intelligence was used by the Justice Department to justify spying on Carter Page, George Pappadapoulos, and other Trump campaign contacts.

There’s your collusion. Read the rest of this entry »

How the Department of Homeland Security Created a Deceptive Tale of Russia Hacking US Voter Sites – Antiwar.com Original

Posted by M. C. Fox on August 29, 2018

Ken Menzel, the legal adviser to the Illinois secretary of state, confirmed what Ozment had testified. “Hackers have been trying constantly to get into it since 2006,” Menzel said, adding that they had been probing every other official Illinois database with such personal data for vulnerabilities as well. “Every governmental database—driver’s licenses, health care, you name it—has people trying to get into it,” 

The FIB, DHS, your government lies to you again.

You need a program to identify the hackers. There are more hackers than baseball teams have legs. How many legs are wearing Russian boots?

by 

The narrative of Russian intelligence attacking state and local election boards and threatening the integrity of U.S. elections has achieved near-universal acceptance by media and political elites. And now it has been accepted by theTrump administration’s intelligence chief, Dan Coats, as well.

But the real story behind that narrative, recounted here for the first time, reveals that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) created and nurtured an account that was grossly and deliberately deceptive.

DHS compiled an intelligence report suggesting hackers linked to the Russian government could have targeted voter-related websites in many states and then leaked a sensational story of Russian attacks on those sites without the qualifications that would have revealed a different story. When state election officials began asking questions, they discovered that the DHS claims were false and, in at least one case, laughable… Read the rest of this entry »

DNC Says Reported Hack Attempt Was a False Alarm

Posted by M. C. Fox on August 23, 2018

The DNC didn’t know it was going to happen. Then assumed mistook it for a Russian attack, then guessed determined it was a test-all without who really did it or why.

One person familiar with the matter…Oh THAT person.

The Michigan Democratic Party and DigiDems couldn’t be immediately reached…haven’t got the stories straight yet!

Don’t worry…the FIB is right on top of it. They will figure a way to Trump and/or the Ruskies. Let’s start with a racist/hate crime angle and go from there.

To paraphrase a progressive democratic hack-I am betting the dems won’t let a bunch of twits bungle an opportune mistake.

By Dustin Volz

A suspected attempt to hack into the Democratic National Committee’s voter database was actually a cybersecurity test, the organization said.

The DNC, which was hacked by Russian intelligence officers during the 2016 presidential campaign, said Tuesday it had contacted the Federal Bureau of Investigation after being alerted to an apparent phishing scheme by the computer security firm Lookout Inc., which uncovered a replica of the login page to the DNC’s VoteBuilder database during an online scan.

In a statement early Wednesday, Bob Lord, the DNC’s chief information security officer, said the DNC and its partners who reported the site “now believe it was built by a third party as part of a simulated phishing test.”

Finally’ — Donald Trump Celebrates After Agent Peter Strzok Fired by the FBI

Posted by M. C. Fox on August 13, 2018

It is so bad even the FIB can’t lie their way out of this one. That is saying something!

Exclusive: FBI Told Former Agent Not to Help 9/11 Victims Build Case Against Saudi Arabia | 28Pages.org

Posted by M. C. Fox on August 2, 2018

Owens, a plaintiff in the suit against Saudi Arabia, says news of the FBI’s obstructionism in her case “confirms what we’ve been suspecting all along—that the government, through three administrations, has decided that staying friends with Saudi Arabia is more important than holding accountable the sponsors of the 9/11 attacks.”

The FIB-To Serve and Protect-themselves and the state.

You and I are not in the picture.

Exclusive: FBI Told Former Agent Not to Help 9/11 Victims Build Case Against Saudi Arabia

By Brian P. McGlinchey

A retired FBI counterterrorism agent with a notable role in the story of 9/11 says the FBI’s Office of the General Counsel told him not to cooperate with attorneys representing 9/11 victims in their suit against the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, because it could harm U.S.-Saudi relations.

In an exclusive interview with 28Pages.org, Kenneth Williams, author of an ignored July 2001 memo warning that Osama bin Laden may be training pilots in the United States, explains why he has now decided to ignore the FBI’s instructions,and illustrates how the failure to share critical information continued into the 9/11 investigation—possibly to the benefit of the kingdom… Read the rest of this entry »

Martyrs to the Cause: Carter Page and Julian Assange – Antiwar.com Original

Posted by M. C. Fox on July 23, 2018

For it wasn’t Page they were really after: they simply used him to get to other members of the Trump campaign staff.

Name names and we will let you go. Sounds like the ’50’s.

https://original.antiwar.com/justin/2018/07/22/martyrs-to-the-cause-carter-page-and-julian-assange/

by 

In an unprecedented move, the Justice Department has released the FISA application submitted by the FBI to spy on Carter Page, the rather hapless would-be advisor to the Trump campaign who has been smeared as a “Russian agent” – but has not been charged after almost two years…

In order to get the judge to agree to the surveillance, the FBI had to establish a fairly convincing probable cause: at a minimum, agents had to identify multiple sources indicating that an act of espionage may have occurred or is about to occur imminently. This FISA application shows that the FBI had a single source: the unverified “dossier,” compiled by “former” MI6 agent Christopher Steele, bought and paid for by the Clinton campaign to dig up dirt on Trump. The other ostensible “sources” were news articles by journalists whom Steele had leaked to. There was a clear intent to deceive the judge who read this application.

This technique is a familiar one: remember how the neocons used to quote each other as “proof” that Saddam had “weapons of mass destruction”? It’s the old echo chamber trick, and every third-rate smear artist deploys it. The question arises: so is this how the FBI carries out its “investigations” into espionage?… Read the rest of this entry »
