White House Proposal Grants FBI Access to Internet Activity Records Without Court Order

Posted on Jul 30, 2010 in Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Featured Articles, Police, Military, & War

Source: Washington Post

The Obama administration is seeking to make it easier for the FBI to compel companies to turn over records of an individual’s Internet activity without a court order if agents deem the information relevant to a terrorism or intelligence investigation.

Hayden’s Note:

Apparently, some of us need a history lesson.  Maybe even a civics course and a refresher on government duties and abilities.

4th Amendment:

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

The administration wants to add just four words — “electronic communication transactional records” — to a list of items that the law says the FBI may demand without a judge’s approval. Government lawyers say this category of information includes the addresses to which an Internet user sends e-mail; the times and dates e-mail was sent and received; and possibly a user’s browser history.

[Revised] 15 Shocking Facts About Illegal Immigrants

Investigated by Kevin Hayden

TruthisTreason.net

The following information is compiled from law enforcement reports, statistics and investigations.  I received this original report in my email and am now in the process of verifying each “fact.”  I have made several notes and included my opinion on many of these figures.

* 83% of warrants for murder in Phoenix are for illegal aliens.

* 86% of warrants for murder in Albuquerque are for illegal aliens.

* 75% of those on the most wanted list in Los Angeles, Phoenix and Albuquerque are illegal aliens.

(This is a very questionable fact, seeing as how many of those on the list are unknown subjects or merely list their nationality.)

*~24% of all inmates in California detention centers are illegal immigrants (as of 2000, according to the LA County Sheriff & a New York Times report).

* 40.1% of all inmates in Arizona detention centers are illegal immigrants.

* 48.2% of all inmates in New Mexico detention centers are illegal immigrants.

* 29% (630,000) convicted illegal alien felons fill our state and Federal prisons at a cost of $1.6 billion annually....

Terawatt Research, Free Energy & the CIA

How many “free energy” companies have a former Director of the CIA and FBI on their payrolls? By my math, there’s just one: Terawatt Research, LLC.

Hayden’s Note:

Here is a graph showing certified results from UL and TUV Rheinland. I noticed that at the ~9.8Hz and ~19Hz ranges, the energy peaks most. These are nearly exponential ranges.  I wonder what energy ouput looks like at ~40 Hz…?

This article explores the backgrounds of the leading personnel at TeraWatt Research, LLC.  These men all have operational intelligence and Special Forces backgrounds at very high levels, including Director of the FBI and then the CIA.  Ever heard of the “black budget?”  Why do you think that the Pentagon needs $800 billion dollars as a yearly budget?  How much of that is siphoned off into black projects or “off the books” operations?  Does human greed not play a factor in this, as well?  Imagine the greed of KBR, Halliburton and Booze, Allen & Hamilton.  Now imagine a free energy machine in their hands, under their friend’s personal patent.  Dick Cheney, CEO of Halliburton, has extremely…extremely close ties to the Pentagon and has for decades as he rose up the ranks under George Bush Sr., the former Director of the CIA....

Six New Orleans Police Officers Indicted for Danziger Bridge Shootings

Posted on Jul 14, 2010 in Police, Military, & War

Six more New Orleans police officers have been indicted by the federal government for their involvement in the killing of two men in the days after Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and in a broad effort to cover it up. The charges were announced yesterday by Attorney General Eric Holder and the Assistant AG Thomas Perez, along with other New Orleans officials.

Four officers (Sgt. Kenneth Bowen, Sgt. Robert Gisevius, Officer Anthony Villavaso and former Officer Robert Faulcon) were charged with civil rights violations for killing a teenaged boy named James Brissette. Their supervisors, Sgt. Arthur Kaufman and former Sgt. Gerard Dugue, were charged with helping orchestrate a cover-up of the September 5, 2005, shooting that also left a 40-year-old mentally disabled man named Ronald Madison dead. Four other people, relatives of Brissette, were also injured that day.

Five years later, FBI investigators are still trying to piece together the actual events that day. The NOPD maintains that its police officers were defending themselves from gun fire on the Danzinger Bridge, but victim and witness accounts say the victims were unarmed....

FBI’s Spy Inquiry Hits Dead End in Cyprus

Posted on Jul 07, 2010 in Alphabet Agencies & Operations

Source: The Age.au

THE furore sparked by the escape from Cyprus of a man said to be one of Russia’s most capable spies has intensified with authorities rejecting a request to hand over his personal effects to the FBI.

A laptop computer and several USB memory sticks confiscated from Christopher Metsos, a Canadian citizen believed to be the paymaster of an espionage ring in the US, should remain with local police, the Attorney-General decreed.

”They will stay with us for the time being, and not be given to US authorities,” police spokesman Christos Savvides told The Age. ”The laptop is currently being investigated.”

Metsos, who escaped the island in mysterious circumstances less than 48 hours after his arrest last week, is alleged to have financed the spy network shuttling between Moscow and the US. US authorities had hoped the portable computer would provide clues to his cloak and dagger activities.

The ruling by Attorney-General Petros Clerides will add to the disappointment already expressed by the US State Department over a court’s surprising decision to release the suspect on bail. There have been thinly disguised accusations that Cyprus’s communist-backed government colluded with Russia’s secret service to allow the operative’s escape....

Ex-Chicago FBI Agent Receives 30 Year Sentence in Home Invasion Scheme

Posted on Apr 27, 2010 in Police, Military, & War

Source: AOL News

A former FBI agent was sentenced today in California to 30 years in prison for plotting a violent home invasion of a suspected drug stash house in Orange County in what turned out to be an FBI sting.

Vo Duong Tran, 42, of New Orleans, was convicted in March 2009 of plotting the robbery with an accomplice, Yu Sung Park. Park, 36, of Wilmette, Ill., was also sentenced today in U.S. District Court in Santa Ana, Calif., to 30 years in prison.

Tran worked for the FBI’s Chicago Division from 1992 to April 2003.

According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles, Tran organized and Park schemed “to commit a violent home-invasion robbery” of a home in the middle-class community of Fountain Valley, Calif. They thought the home was a base for a drug-trafficking organization and was flush with drugs and cash, prosecutors said. But the home was actually vacant.

Tran repeatedly expressed interest in traveling from New Orleans to Orange County to pull off the robbery, authorities said.

According to undercover FBI tapes played in court, Tran said he would provide the necessary equipment, namely firearms, silencers and bulletproof vests, authorities said....

CIA Documents Suggest Foreign Involvement in 1995 OKC Bombing

CIA documents suggest foreign involvement in OKC 1995 Bombing but a Judge refuses to make them public in FOIA case.

Someone from a foreign country was involved in the Oklahoma City 1995 bombing of the Murrah building, either as a participant, planner or government operative, suggests a Utah federal judge’s ruling in a Freedom of Information Fight. 

    And the same ruling by U.S. District court judge Clark Waddoups showed the CIA assisted federal prosecutors in the cases they built against Tim McVeigh and Terry Nichols.  The ruling last week in Salt Lake City came in the FOIA challenge made by Jesse Trentadue, an attorney who has been in a long struggle to get government documents regarding the 1995 death of his brother Kenneth in the Oklahoma City Federal Transfer Center.

   Jesse Trentadue sought a dozen documents from the CIA and Judge Waddoups ruled they were considered ‘national security’ and would not be made available to the public.  It was the first such national security defense ever used by the government in denying records to Trentadue.

   While the exact content of the documents was not revealed in detail, Judge Waddoups, in making his ruling against Trentadue hinted at what they regarded....

FBI Making ‘Steady Progress’ Toward Releasing Massive Kennedy File

Posted on Apr 13, 2010 in Alphabet Agencies & Operations

Source: FOX News (bleh!)

The FBI records center is making “steady progress” toward completing its review of Ted Kennedy’s 3,000-page file and plans to release it well before the end of the year, a records official said Monday. 

The FBI, as a courtesy, plans to give the Kennedy family advance notice before making the file public and may allow immediate family members to raise objections to parts of the record — a veritable encyclopedia on the late Massachusetts senator that could date back decades. 

Despite concerns the review could redact some of the more alluring aspects of Kennedy’s life, FBI spokesman Dennis Argall said officials are aiming to disclose as much as possible, as is the case with any public figure’s file. 

He said the family members would be able to raise concerns about sections that “implicate” their privacy once the FBI is finished with its internal review. 

“The FBI’s under an obligation to balance the public’s right to know with the surviving family’s privacy interest,” he said.

S. 3081 Enemy Belligerent Interrogation – A Sick Merry-Go-Round

Posted on Apr 01, 2010 in Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Political Issues

Truth is Treason.net

I was notified of this bill some time ago, but could not find the time to sit down and read over it.  Today, I finally had a chance to get my hands on it and was a bit shocked by what I read.  And nowadays, that’s a pretty difficult task to do.  

The bill in question is “S.3081 – Enemy Belligerent, Interrogation, Detention, and Prosecution Act of 2010” which thus far has been referred to the Senate Judiciary Committee. The bill outlines the process by which Americans may be held indefinitely, without notice of their Miranda Rights, and without ever being charged with a crime. Worse, detainment of an individual according to the legislation is authorized by mere suspicion that the individual did or seeks to harm any asset of the United States government or any civilian target.

Even more disappointing, the bill introduced last Thursday, March 4th, already has nine eight co-sponsors, including the supposed “Tea Party” candidate Senator Scott Brown of Massachusetts.  David Vitter, of Louisiana has taken his name off of the bill....

Federal Judge Determines NSA Wiretapping Program Illegal

Posted on Apr 01, 2010 in Alphabet Agencies & Operations

Source: NY Times

A federal judge ruled Wednesday that the National Security Agency’s program of surveillance without warrants was illegal, rejecting the Obama administration’s effort to keep shrouded in secrecy one of the most disputed counterterrorism policies of former President George W. Bush.

In a 45-page opinion, Judge Vaughn R. Walker ruled that the government had violated a 1978 federal statute requiring court approval for domestic surveillance when it intercepted phone calls of Al Haramain, a now-defunct Islamic charity in Oregon, and of two lawyers representing it in 2004. Declaring that the plaintiffs had been “subjected to unlawful surveillance,” the judge said the government was liable to pay them damages.

The ruling delivered a blow to the Bush administration’s claims that its surveillance program, which Mr. Bush secretly authorized shortly after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, was lawful. Under the program, the National Security Agency monitored Americans’ international e-mail messages and phone calls without court approval, even though the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, or FISA, required warrants.

The Justice Department said it was reviewing the decision and had made no decision about whether to appeal....

Man Arrested For Alleged Threats Against Rep. Eric Cantor

By Frank James

Federal Bureau of Investigation agents have arrested a man for making threats against Rep. Eric Cantor, the Virginia Republican who last week reported that a bullet was shot through a window of his district office.

Norman Leboon, 33, was charged with two counts related to alleged threats to kill Cantor and his family according to an affidavit.

According to the federal charges, Leboon is clearly seen in a video that was posted but since removed from YouTube threatening the congressman.

On March 26, 2010, the FBI, San Francisco Division, received a copy of a video that had been removed from the internet website YouTube. The video included images of a white male, later identified as NORMAN LEBOON, making threats against United States Congressman Eric Cantor, 7 Congressional D th istrict – Virginia. The video appeared to be homemade and was of good quality. The face of the white male can clearly be seen.

And the profanity laced message was an unambiguous threat.

The FBI made emergency disclosure requests to both Google, which owns YouTube, and Verizon which was identified as the provider of Internet service to the suspect IP address....

2nd Mistrial in Hal Turner Case; Testifies Under Oath He Was FBI Informant

Posted on Mar 11, 2010 in Global & National News

Source: AP & Various

The federal trial of radio host Hal Turner ended in a mistrial — for the second time.

After deliberating for three days in Brooklyn’s U.S. District Court, jurors said they were hopelessly deadlocked. They had been deliberating since Monday afternoon, according to The Associated Press.  Judge Donald Walter declared a mistrial and scheduled a third trial for April 12. Turner’s first trial in December also resulted in a deadlocked jury. An Internet radio host from New Jersey, Turner was charged with threatening to assault and murder three federal judges in Chicago after he wrote on his blog in June that they “deserve to be killed” because they had upheld a local handgun ban.

As during the first trial, the proceedings this month focused on whether Turner’s blog entries constituted a criminal threat or merely heated rhetoric that’s protected under the First Amendment. However, the second trial differed from the first in key ways, according to news accounts. This time, for instance, the judges that Turner targeted on his blog testified, saying that they were in fear of their lives at the time.

UPDATE

An official with the U.S. Postal Inspection Service said Monday a suspicious substance found at a federal tax agency building in Utah is not hazardous.

The FBI’s Salt Lake City division said hazardous materials crews were called to the Internal Revenue Service building about 35 miles (55 kilometres) north of Salt Lake City in the western state to respond to a possible hazardous material threat.

Parts of the building were evacuated.

U.S. Postal Inspection Service national spokesman Pete Rendina told The Associated Press the “matter was non-hazardous.”

OGDEN, Utah – Hazardous materials crews and the FBI were on the scene Monday at the IRS building in Ogden, Utah, where several people were subjected to decontamination showers.

Two people were taken out of the building on stretchers for “medical emergencies,” but their conditions “do not appear to be related to this incident,” said the the FBI, which is leading the investigation.” It released no further details.

The IRS confirmed that “an unknown substance” was discovered but also gave no further details. Local news reports suggested that a suspicious white powder may have been found in mail delivered to the facility....

Congressional Hearing Reveals US Intelligence Agencies Shielded Flight 253 Bomber

Posted on Feb 03, 2010 in Alphabet Agencies & Operations, Featured Articles

Source: WSWS

(Hayden’s Note: I noticed that Flight 253 was a Northwest airlines flight.  Why is it that EVERY SINGLE photo on the internet and from major media outlets shows a Delta Airlines plane being surrounded by police on Christmas day?)

A January 27 hearing of the House Committee on Homeland Security established that US intelligence agencies stopped the State Department from revoking the US visa of Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab. The Nigerian student, whom US officials suspected of being affiliated with the Yemeni terrorist group Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, attempted to set off a bomb on Northwest Flight 253 into Detroit on Christmas Day. Revocation of Abdulmutallab’s visa would have prevented him from boarding the airplane.

The hearing was reported in a brief article posted January 27 on the web site of the Detroit News, headlined, “Terror Suspect Kept Visa to Avoid Tipping Off Larger Investigation.”

The revelation that US intelligence agencies made a deliberate decision to allow Abdulmutallab to board the commercial flight, without any special airport screening, has been buried in the media. As of this writing, nearly a week after the hearing, the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post and Los Angeles Times have published no articles on the subject....

Filmmaker Who Made ACORN Videos Arrested; Wiretap Plot Alleged

By Mark Memmott

“The FBI, alleging a plot to wiretap Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu’s office in downtown New Orleans, arrested four people Monday, including James O’Keefe, a conservative filmmaker whose undercover videos at ACORN field offices severely damaged the advocacy group’s credibility,” the Times-Picayune reports.

The Associated Press says that:

An FBI affidavit says four people were arrested Monday. At least two of them were dressed in work clothes and construction hats and claimed they were technicians for a telephone company.

It’s not clear from the affidavit why they might have been trying to interfere with the system.

Update at 4:05 p.m. ET. The AP now reports that:

O’Keefe, 25, was already in Landrieu’s New Orleans office Monday when Robert Flanagan and Joseph Basel, both 24, showed up claiming to be telephone repairmen, according to U.S. Attorney Jim Letten’s office. Letten says O’Keefe recorded the two with his cell phone.

Once inside the reception area, Flanagan, the son of acting U.S. Attorney Bill Flanagan in Shreveport, and Basel asked for access to the main phone at the reception desk.
