Judge Napolitano On Orlando Nightclub: “Nobody Died Until 5:13 In The Morning”

Judge-Andrew-Napolitano-Said-Rand-Paul-Is-Every-Bit-As-Libertarian-As-His-Father

The judge is more than aware that the US government orchestrates false flag events! Let’s not forget that he already lost his show on Fox because of saying things he wasn’t supposed to say on TV.

“According to the FBI, the supposed Orlando shooter, Omar Mateen, entered the club around 02:00 AM and began his killing spree. However, as Judge Andrew Napolitano points out in this clip, that story, the story based off of the un-redacted FBI transcript released Monday doesn’t just directly contradict eye witness testimony, but the FBI’s official narrative itself.”  Continue reading

Watch This Baltimore Protester Completely Shut Down Geraldo Rivera and Fox News

bmore protestor

A protester in Baltimore, who Fox News reporter, Geraldo Rivera, described on television as a “vandal,” gave the newsman the real story when the official cameras were turned off Tuesday night.

The protestor laid into Rivera about the national media’s obsession with black rioting and criticized him for ignoring stories about Baltimore’s poverty, and nonviolent protests which had also taken place in the city.

“You’re here for the black riots that happened,” said the man. “You’re not here for the death of Freddie Gray,”

State Department Accused of Covering Up Prostitution Scandal

An internal memo from the State Department’s inspector general has surfaced that calls into question the State Department’s ability to investigate wrongdoing by its staff. The memo outlines eight examples of wrongdoing by agency staff and contractors, including hiring prostitutes and committing sexual assault, and seems to imply that the agency attempted to halt investigation into these matters.

A number of the allegations outlined in the memo are against then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s security detail, some of whom have been accused of hiring prostitutes. Likewise, a U.S. ambassador is accused of perusing public parks in search of paid sex, and a security official allegedly committed sexual assaults on foreign nationals in Beirut hired as embassy guards.

The memo notes that members of Hillary Clinton’s security detailed “engaged prostitutes while on official trips in foreign countries,” and stated that the problem was “endemic.”

The memo indicates that four members of Clinton’s security detail received one-day suspensions.

According to the memo, which was first obtained by CBS News, the State Department has attempted to stop investigations into these cases. For example, the investigation into the Ambassador’s pursuit of paid sex was allegedly interrupted by the agency. Fox News reports:

The memo also seems to indicate that the government agency tried to use its authority to stop the investigation and instead, opting to have the official, whose name has not been released, meet with Undersecretary of State for Management Patrick Kennedy in Washington. The official was then allowed to return to his job overseas.

Responding to media reports on Tuesday, Kennedy defended himself, asserting, “I have always acted to honor the brave men and women I serve, while also holding accountable anyone guilty of wrongdoing. In my current position, it is my responsibility to make sure the Department and all of our employees — no matter their rank — are held to the highest standard, and I have never once interfered, nor would I condone interfering, in any investigation.”

While CBS did not disclose the name of the ambassador, the New York Post reported it was U.S. Ambassador to Belgium Howard Gutman.

Gutman responded to the allegations on Tuesday.

“I am angered and saddened by the baseless allegations that have appeared in the press and to watch the four years I have proudly served in Belgium smeared is devastating,” he said. “I live on a beautiful park in Brussels that you walk through to get to many locations and at no point have I ever engaged in any improper activity.”

The memo also reveals details about an “underground drug ring” near the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad and that allegedly supplied State Department security contractors with drugs.

Upon learning of the allegations of misconduct, Representative Ed Royce, who chairs the House Foreign Affairs Committee, called on congressional staff members to launch an investigation.

And a State Department spokeswoman, Jen Psaki, has announced that the department’s Bureau of Diplomatic Security has requested a “review by outside, experienced law enforcement officers” to work with the Inspector General’s office to make “expert assessments about our current procedures.”

Psaki denies that the improper behavior outlined in the report is “endemic.”

“I’m not going to speak to specific cases, but it’s hardly endemic,” Psaki told reporters at a State Department briefing. “Any case we would take seriously and that’s certainly what we’re doing.”

On Tuesday, Psaki said, “The notion that we would not vigorously pursue criminal misconduct is not only preposterous, it’s inaccurate.”

Reporters attempted to question Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on the subject during a press conference on Tuesday, but Reid quickly cut them off.

“I don’t know what you’re talking about,” he said. “What are you talking about?… I don’t know what you’re talking about.”

But White House spokesman Jay Carney did respond to the allegations on Tuesday, asserting that President Obama has “zero tolerance for misconduct by any government employee.”

He added, however, that the White House “won’t prejudge anyone or anything before all the facts are determined.”

As noted by Fox News, this is not the first time allegations of sexual misconduct have been raised against the Obama administration. Fox News observes:

In April 2012, members of the president’s Secret Service detail were caught in a prostitution scandal involving 12 women they picked up during an official trip to Colombia. The Secret Service was slow to disclose any information and issued only limited public statements in the weeks following the incident in Cartagena.

In the end, a dozen agents, officers, supervisors and 12 other U.S. military personnel were implicated in a night of heavy drinking and misconduct.

The Secret Service forced eight employees from their jobs. The military canceled the security clearances of all 12 enlisted personnel.

However, the bigger issue is the State Department’s alleged efforts to cover up the allegations.

The memo indicates that recent investigations into these matters were influenced, manipulated, or called off.

According to Aurelia Fedenisn, a former investigator with the Inspector General’s office, “We also uncovered several allegations of criminal wrongdoing in cases, some of which never became cases.”

Members of the Diplomatic Security Service (DSS), which is the State Department’s security force in charge of investigating any cases of misconduct on the part of State Department employees, claim that senior State Department officials had told them to back off in many of these cases.

Fedenisn states, “We were very upset. We expect to see influence, but the degree to which that influence existed and how high up it went, was very disturbing.”

Mike Pohelitz, a retired Senior Agent at the DSS who had been involved in one of the cases listed in the memo, recalls being told to stop investigating, and assumes that the orders came from the upper ranks of the DSS.

“I got the information through my DS channel,” he told CBS. “But it had to come from somebody higher than DS, I’m sure.”

CBS reports that Fedenisn was a part of the team that prepared the Inspector General’s draft report on the DSS’ performance and is now a whistleblower who has taken her concerns to Congress.

Fedenisn explains “hostile intelligence services” permit bad behaviors like these to continue. “I would be very surprised if some of those entities were not aware of the activities,” she said. “So yes, it presents a serious risk to the United States government.”

A draft of the Inspector General’s report on the DSS’ performance, obtained by CBS News, articulates similar sentiments.

“Hindering such cases calls into question the integrity of the investigative process, can result in counterintelligence vulnerabilities and can allow criminal behavior to continue,” it reads.

20 HUGE scandals since Obama took office

Here are 20 impeachable unconstitutional economically terroristic things that have happened since obama took office

-IRS targets Obama’s enemies: The IRS targeted conservative and pro-Israel groups prior to the 2012 election. Questions are being raised about why this occurred, who ordered it, whether there was any White House involvement and whether there was an initial effort to hide who knew about the targeting and when.

– Benghazi: This is actually three scandals in one:  The failure of administration to protect the Benghazi mission.  The changes made to the talking points in order to suggest the attack was motivated by an anti-Muslim video  The refusal of the White House to say what President Obama did the night of the attack

– Watching the AP: The Justice Department performed a massive cull of Associated Press reporters’ phone records as part of a leak investigation.

– Rosengate: The Justice Department suggested that Fox News reporter James Rosen is a criminal for reporting about classified information and subsequently monitored his phones and emails.

– Potential Holder perjury I: Attorney General Eric Holder told Congress he had never been associated with “potential prosecution” of a journalist for perjury when in fact he signed the affidavit that termed Rosen a potential criminal.

– The ATF “Fast and Furious” scheme: Allowed weapons from the U.S. to “walk” across the border into the hands of Mexican drug dealers. The ATF lost track of hundreds of firearms, many of which were used in crimes, including the December 2010 killing of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.

– Potential Holder Perjury II: Holder told Congress in May 2011 that he had just recently heard about the Fast and Furious gun walking scheme when there is evidence he may have known much earlier.

– Sebelius demands payment: HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius solicited donations from companies HHS might regulate. The money would be used to help her sign up uninsured Americans for ObamaCare.

– The Pigford scandal: An Agriculture Department effort that started as an attempt to compensate black farmers who had been discriminated against by the agency but evolved into a gravy train delivering several billion dollars in cash to thousands of additional minority and female farmers who probably didn’t face discrimination.

– GSA gone wild: The General Services Administration in 2010 held an $823,000 training conference in Las Vegas, featuring a clown and a mind readers. Resulted in the resignation of the GSA administrator.

– Veterans Affairs in Disney World: The agency wasted more than $6 million on two conferences in Orlando. An assistant secretary was fired.

– Sebelius violates the Hatch Act: A U.S. special counsel determined that Sebelius violated the Hatch Act when she made “extemporaneous partisan remarks” during a speech in her official capacity last year. During the remarks, Sebelius called for the election of the Democratic candidate for governor of North Carolina.

– Solyndra: Republicans charged the Obama administration funded and promoted its poster boy for green energy despite warning signs the company was headed for bankruptcy. The administration also allegedly pressed Solyndra to delay layoff announcements until after the 2010 midterm elections.

– AKA Lisa Jackson: Former EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson used the name “Richard Windsor” when corresponding by email with other government officials, drawing charges she was trying to evade scrutiny.

– The New Black Panthers: The Justice Department was accused of using a racial double standard in failing to pursue a voter intimidation case against Black Panthers who appeared to be menacing voters at a polling place in 2008 in Philadelphia.

– Waging war all by myself: Obama may have violated the Constitution and both the letter and the spirit of the War Powers Resolution by attacking Libya without Congressional approval.

– Biden bullies the press: Vice President Biden’s office has repeatedly interfered with coverage, including forcing a reporter to wait in a closet, making a reporter delete photos, and editing pool reports.

– AKPD not A-OK: The administration paid millions to the former firm of then-White House adviser David Axelrod, AKPD Message and Media, to promote passage of Obamacare. Some questioned whether the firm was hired to help pay Axelrod $2 million AKPD owed him.

– Sestak, we’ll take care of you: Former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel used Bill Clinton as an intermediary to probe whether former Rep. Joe Sestak (D-Pa.) would accept a prominent, unpaid White House advisory position in exchange for dropping out of the 2010 primary against former Sen. Arlen Specter (D-Pa.).

– I’ll pass my own laws: Obama has repeatedly been accused of making end runs around Congress by deciding which laws to enforce, including the decision not to deport illegal immigrants who may have been allowed to stay in the United States had Congress passed the “Dream Act.”

The U.S. Government Is Monitoring All Phone Calls, All Emails And All Internet Activity

The U.S. Government Is Monitoring All Phone Calls, All Emails And All Internet Activity - Photo by Jo Amelia Finlay

Big Brother is watching everything that you do on the Internet and listening to everything that you say on your phone.  Every single day in America, the U.S. government intercepts and stores nearly 2 billion emails, phone calls and other forms of electronic communication.  Former NSA employees have come forward and have described exactly what is taking place, and this surveillance activity has been reported on by prominent news organizations such as the Washington Post, Fox News and CNN, but nobody really seems to get too upset about it.  Either most Americans are not aware of what is really going on or they have just accepted it as part of modern life.  But where will this end?  Do we really want to live in a dystopian “Big Brother society” where the government literally reads every single thing that we write and listens to every single thing that we say?  Is that what the future of America is going to look like?  If so, what do you think our founding fathers would have said about that?

Many Americans may not realize this, but nothing that you do on your cell phone or on the Internet will ever be private again.  According to the Washington Post, the NSA intercepts and stores an astounding amount of information every single day…

Every day, collection systems at the National Security Agency intercept and store 1.7 billion e-mails, phone calls and other types of communications. The NSA sorts a fraction of those into 70 separate databases.

But even the Washington Post may not have been aware of the full scope of the surveillance.  In fact, National Security Agency whistleblower William Binney claims that the NSA has collected “20 trillion transactions” involving U.S. citizens…

In fact, I would suggest that they’ve assembled on the order of 20 trillion transactions about U.S. citizens with other U.S. citizens.

And NSA whistleblowers have also told us that the agency “has the capability to do individualized searches, similar to Google, for particular electronic communications in real time through such criteria as target addresses, locations, countries and phone numbers, as well as watch-listed names, keywords, and phrases in email.”

So the NSA must have tremendous data storage needs.  That must be why they are building such a mammoth data storage center out in Utah.  According to Fox News, it will have the capability of storing 5 zettabytes of data…

The NSA says the Utah Data Center is a facility for the intelligence community that will have a major focus on cyber security. The agency will neither confirm nor deny specifics. Some published reports suggest it could hold 5 zettabytes of data. (Just one zettabyte is the equivalent of about 62 billion stacked iPhones 5?s– that stretches past the moon.

Are you outraged by all of this?

You should be.

The U.S. government is spying on the American people and yet they continue to publicly deny that they are actually doing it.

Last week, this government spying program was once again confirmed by another insider.  What former FBI counterterrorism agent Tim Clemente told Erin Burnett of CNN is absolutely astounding

BURNETT: Tim, is there any way, obviously, there is a voice mail they can try to get the phone companies to give that up at this point. It’s not a voice mail. It’s just a conversation. There’s no way they actually can find out what happened, right, unless she tells them?

CLEMENTE: “No, there is a way. We certainly have ways in national security investigations to find out exactly what was said in that conversation. It’s not necessarily something that the FBI is going to want to present in court, but it may help lead the investigation and/or lead to questioning of her. We certainly can find that out.

BURNETT: “So they can actually get that? People are saying, look, that is incredible.

CLEMENTE: “No, welcome to America. All of that stuff is being captured as we speak whether we know it or like it or not.”

Yes, “all of that stuff” is most definitely being “captured” and it is time for the Obama administration to be honest with the American people about what is actually going on.

Meanwhile, the recent bombing in Boston has many of our politicians calling for even tighter surveillance.

For example, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg recently said that our interpretation of the U.S. Constitution will “have to change” to deal with the new threats that we are facing.  More “smart cameras” are going up in New York, and Bloomberg says that we are “never going to know where all of our cameras are”.  The following is from a recent RT article

New York City police officials intend to expand the already extensive use of surveillance cameras throughout town. The plan, unveiled Thursday, comes as part of a drive for increased security around the US following the Boston Marathon attack.

New York City Police Department Commissioner Ray Kelly announced the plan during a press conference with Mayor Michael Bloomberg, in which the two announced that the suspected Boston Marathon bombers were planning to attack New York next. The pair said they hope to discourage criminals by using so-called “smart cameras” that will aggregate data from 911 alerts, arrest records, mapped crime patterns, surveillance cameras and radiation detectors, among other tools, according to The Verge.

You’re never going to know where all of our cameras are,” Bloomberg told reporters gathered outside City Hall. “And that’s one of the ways you deter people; they just don’t know whether the person sitting next to you is somebody sitting there or a detective watching.”

Will you feel safer if the government is watching you 100% of the time?

Do you want them to see what you are doing 100% of the time?

You might want to think about that, because that is where all of this is headed.

In fact, the truth is that spy cameras are not just going up all over New York City.  Most Americans may not realize this, but a network of spy cameras is now going up all over the nation.  The following is an excerpt from one of my previous articles

“You are being watched.  The government has a secret system – a machine – that spies on you every hour of every day.”  That is how each episode of “Person of Interest” on CBS begins.  Most Americans that have watched the show just assume that such a surveillance network is completely fictional and that the government would never watch us like that.  Sadly, most Americans are wrong.  Shocking new details have emerged this week which prove that a creepy nationwide network of spy cameras is being rolled out across the United States.  Reportedly, these new spy cameras are “more accurate than modern facial recognition technology”, and every few seconds they send back data from cities and major landmarks all over the United States to a centralized processing center where it is analyzed.  The authorities believe that the world has become such a dangerous place that the only way to keep us all safe is to watch what everyone does all the time.  But the truth is that instead of “saving America”, all of these repressive surveillance technologies are slowly killing our liberties and our freedoms.  America is being transformed into an Orwellian prison camp right in front of our eyes, and very few people are even objecting to it.

For many more examples of how the emerging Big Brother surveillance grid is tightening all around us, please see my previous article entitled “19 Signs That America Is Being Systematically Transformed Into A Giant Surveillance Grid“.

Meanwhile, Barack Obama is telling us to reject those that are warning us about government tyranny.  The following is what he told the graduating class of The Ohio State University on May 5th, 2013

Unfortunately, you’ve grown up hearing voices that incessantly warn of government as nothing more than some separate, sinister entity that’s at the root of all our problems. Some of these same voices also do their best to gum up the works. They’ll warn that tyranny always lurking just around the corner. You should reject these voices.

So what do you think?

Should we just ignore all of the violations of our privacy that are happening?

Should we just ignore what the U.S. Constitution says about privacy and let the government monitor us however it wants to?

‘Journalists Everywhere Would Go Nuts’: Why the Case Against a Fox News Reporter Is So Important

Fox News reporter Jana Winter returns to the court house after a midday recess to face Arapahoe County District Judge William Sylvester regarding evidence in the case of Aurora theater shooting suspect James Holmes at the Arapahoe County Justice Center in Centennial, Colo. on April 1, 2013. Winter is facing contempt charges for not revealing her sources that broke a gag order in the case.
The attorney for the Fox News reporter facing possible jail time for refusing to reveal her sources in a report about the Colorado movie theater massacre said her client knows the consequences of not talking. And a media expert tells us the implications in the case are far-reaching.
Jana Winter exclusively reported days after the Aurora shooting that suspect James Holmes mailed a notebook “full of details about how he was going to kill people” to a University of Colorado psychiatrist before the attack. Winter cited confidential law enforcement sources for her report, and attorneys for Holmes want to know who they were — arguing they violated a gag order and could jeopardize Holmes’ right to a fair trial.
Winter has said she will not testify and give up her sources, and says Colorado’s reporter shield law and the First Amendment protect her from having to do so. But if that doesn’t hold up, it could mean jail time.
“She knows what the potential consequences are of being compelled to give up confidential news-gathering information and refusing to do it,” Winter’s attorney Dori Ann Hanswirth told TheBlaze in an interview Friday. “She can’t give up who her sources are because if she gives up her source, then no journalist in the country is going to be able to definitively convince a source that ‘journalists just don’t do that sort of thing and therefore you can trust me with your information.'”
At issue is whether the judge decides the notebook Holmes mailed should be evidence against him. If the notebook is deemed to be communication between a patient and a mental health professional, it would be considered privileged and therefore inadmissible in court — and the issue of forcing Winter to testify who told her about it would likely be over, Hanswirth said.
Judge Carlos Samour Jr. said Wednesday he was not ruling on the notebook issue yet, and said Winter did not have to return to Colorado until a hearing Aug. 19 — staving off any potential jail time at least until then.
“Even if the judge does rule that the notebook is admissible, that doesn’t mean necessarily that Jana will have to testify,” Hanswirth said. That’s because Holmes’ attorneys would have to prove the information she holds would be “directly relevant to a substantial issue in the proceeding” and therefore an exception to Colorado’s reporter shield law.
Shield laws to protect journalists vary by state — there is no all-encompassing federal law. Hanswirth said there’s case law in Colorado that’s on Winter’s side, but it’s not as “robust or wide-bodied” as in, say, New York, which has a stronger shield law and is where Winter lives.
Hanswirth believes there is no way that the names of her client’s sources are critical at all to the case against Holmes.
“We have a trial that’s not scheduled to begin until February of 2014 — by that time it will have been a year and half or so [since her reporting] — it’s really hard to understand how whatever conversation Jana Winter had with people back in July would really have any relationship to the issues in the case,” she said. “And because of that tenuous connection between information she had and the case, it’s even more troubling that Holmes is trying to make her disclose her confidential news-gathering.”
A First Amendment issue
Kelly McBride, an ethics faculty member at the Poynter Institute, a journalism think tank in St. Petersburg, Fla., thinks it’s more about the First Amendment than the shield law. When the Founding Fathers enshrined freedom of speech and a free press in the Bill the Rights, they specifically guaranteed the press — journalists — the ability to be critical of the government.
“When a government tries to force a reporter to reveal her sources for information, that is interpreted by the press as a hostile act meant to curtail the freedom of the press,” McBride told TheBlaze.
The shield law, McBride said, creates a special class for journalists, but First Amendment protections for the press can extend to anyone, particularly given new technology and the proliferation of blogging.
“If a court did send Ms. Winter to jail…I would think that journalists everywhere would just go nuts,” McBride said.
Anti-Fox bias?
There is the question of why it took so long for Winter’s case to gain widespread attention; until this week, coverage was largely limited to Fox News itself. Judith Miller, a Fox News contributor and former New York Times reporter who spent 85 days in jail in 2005 for refusing to give up the name of a source, said an anti-Fox bias was to blame.
“If she worked for mainstream newspapers or CNN, I think the case would have been covered,” Miller told BuzzFeed last week. “There’s a certain reluctance because it’s Fox News.”
Starting Monday, coverage about Winter’s case appeared in many of the major news outlets, including the Times and on CNN, where new anchor Jake Tapper demanded to know, “Where’s the public outrage?”
But McBride said she’s not convinced there was an anti-Fox sentiment in play, and thinks the general news blackout had more to do with the unbelievable nature of the case.
“The main thing I think is most people, when they look at the facts of the case, said ‘oh, this couldn’t possibly go anywhere,” she said.
Hanswirth, Winter’s lawyer, seconds that assessment.
“Probably people were thinking, ‘oh that’s never gonna happen, no judge is going to make her testify about that, that doesn’t happen in the United States,” she said. “I think that once it came to light that this was a potential reality, that the media indeed started to pay the appropriate attention to this matter.”
If it goes much further, Winter’s situation could have grave consequences for news and news-gatherers, Hanswirth said.
“As a society, we value our freedom of speech very highly…anytime somebody interferes with the relationship between a journalist and a source it is bad for journalism as a whole. It makes sources scared to come forward, it makes editors fearful, and it kind of chokes off the flow of news,” Hanswirth said.

Rand Paul: Don’t Jail People for Non-Violent Drug Crimes

1aa

(Breitbart) -Sen. Rand Paul, speaking on Fox News Sunday, said today that although he is against legalizing drugs, he doesn’t think people should be incarcerated for non-violent drug crimes. Paul stated:

I don’t want to encourage people to do (drugs). I think even marijuana’s a bad thing to do. I think it takes away your incentive to work and show up and do the things that you should be doing. But I also don’t want to put people in jail who make a mistake. There are a lot of young people who do this and then later on in their twenties they grow up and get married, they quit doing things like this.

Paul pointed out that both Barack Obama and George W. Bush admitted using drugs: “Look, the last two presidents could conceivably have been put in jail for their drug use. Look what would have happened. It would have ruined their lives. They got lucky, but a lot of poor kids, particularly in the inner city, don’t get lucky. They don’t have good attorneys. They go to jail for these things, and I think it’s a big mistake.”

You have been lied to by the Government, again – and here’s how you can know

You have been lied to by the Government

(Prepper Podcast Radio) -“People think that a liar gains a victory over his victim. What I’ve learned is that a lie is an act of self-abdication, because one surrenders one’s reality to the person to whom one lies, making that person one’s master, condemning oneself from then on to faking the sort of reality that person’s view requires to be faked…The man who lies to the world, is the world’s slave from then on…There are no white lies, there is only the blackest of destruction, and a white lie is the blackest of all.”

― Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged

“When truth is replaced by silence,the silence is a lie.” Yevgeny Yevtushenko

As an investigator I learned early two things: How to lie well enough to get the information I wanted, and the other is never to believe what you’re told. As Ronaldus Magnus (Ronald Reagan) love to repeat, “Trust, but verify”. It is an old Russian proverb that I’m afraid many people have never learned.

Fox News recently ran a story by the Associate Press, presenting the Government’s case in the ammunition purchase. But it was poorly written and the reporter did not ask the right questions, nor did they do all their homework.

From the story:

ICE’s ammunition requests in the last year included:

  • 450 million rounds of .40-caliber duty ammunition
  • 40 million rounds of rifle ammunition a year for as many as five years, for a total bullet-buy of 200 million rounds
  • 176,000 rifle rounds on a separate contract
  • 25,000 blank rounds

This small segment highlights the poor research conducted by the AP reporter. Right off the top – The 176,000 rifle rounds were cancelled. As we reported 2 October 2012:

“Put this in the “I don’t believe it” file, but something unusual has happened. The Department of Homeland Security /Immigration Customs Enforcement (DHS/ICE) has CANCELLED their request to purchase 176,000 rounds of .308 hollow point boat tail ammunition. According to an email that was passed onto me, Harry at the Federal Service Desk stated that a notice could be cancelled for a variety of reason.”

Another glaring issue is the “450 million rounds purchased”. What are not considered are prior year purchases. The following chart provides the breakdown of three branches of DHS that purchases ammunition: Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Customs Border Protectorate (CBP), and the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) over the past four years.

2009

2010

2011

2012

ICE

575,759,800

487,200

350,004,000

165,012,000

CBP

1,000

77,400

88,000

250,000,000

FLETC

69,920

20,000

154,000

63,742,350

I could present a chart, but ICE’s purchases make the others seem insignificant.  The large numbers are taking the total number of contracted purchases to the date the contract was signed. Many contracts were for 4 or 5 years. Click HERE for the Excel file.

If Mr. Obama’s administration had no ammunition at the very beginning, they certainly develop a stockpile very quickly.

Had the Associated Press reporter had done their job; they would have asked the following questions:

  1. If FLETC requires 15 million rounds a year, how did they get their required ammunition in 2009, 2010, and 2011?
  2. If FLETC borrowed ammunition from ICE, is it not possible that ammunition could be allocated to Mr. Obama’s Civilian Army Corps without public notification?
  3. If FLETC has contracted out for 63,000,000 rounds of various ammunition in 2012, why then are they purchasing 200,000 rounds of .40 caliber JHP ammunition in December 2012 and 140,000 rounds of 9 mm and 100,000 rounds of .40 caliber February 2013?
  4. If over 15 million rounds of .40 caliber JHP ammunition is required per year, why did ICE order 38 years of ammunition in 2009, and another 23 years in 2011?
  5. If over 15 million rounds of .223 EP ammunition is required per year, why did ICE order 11 years of ammunition in 2012?
  6. If over 15 million rounds of .40 caliber JHP ammunition is required per year, why did CPB order 13 years of ammunition in 2012?
  7. Does the DHS Inspector General know that the December 2012 contract may have been fraudulently awarded?
  8. If the grand total that we’ve come up with is: 1,405,455,670. That roughly translates to 1,000 people firing 1 round a second for 16 days, at what point has too much ammunition has been purchased?

Transferring assets from one Department or Agency is as easy as filling out a sheet of paper listing the departments, assets, and quantities involved. Don’t be fooled. Bureaucracy has been around since Roman times. Bureaucrats know how to manipulate paper, and how to make it disappear.

And the silence becomes the lie.

Media Icons Piers Morgan, Anderson Cooper, and Megyn Kelly Should be Outed as Traitors to the American People

 

Megyn-Kelly

By Shepard Ambellas

(TheIntelHub) -Intelligence operatives or globalist cronies? One thing is for sure, contrived media propaganda is in full swing for 2013.

Recently, rouge factions of our government and media have seemingly been following a terrorist version of a “False Flag” play-by-play manual aimed at disarming the American populace once and for all.

In fact CNN has recently been implicated in airing bunk footage of another “active-shooter” drill as the “LIVE BREAKING” feed of the Sandy Hook School shooting on the morning of December 14, 2012 the day of the reported shooting. But why would the media be involved?

For years the government has been pecking away at our constitutional rights as American citizens, trying to limit and impose more stringent limitations regarding firearm use and ownership. But never before have we seen this type of rhetoric and blatant attacks on our constitutional rights by media “icons” and the media establishment itself then in recent months following the Aurora theatre shooting in Colorado.

The media has always been a big part of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) as it not only gathers intelligence information but serves as a propaganda mouth piece for various intelligence operations worldwide.

It is also well known now and openly admitted that Anderson Cooper and other predominant members of the media are indeed affiliated with the CIA.

Anderson Cooper

Anderson Hays Cooper (born June 3, 1967) is an American journalist, author, and television personality. He is the primary anchor of the CNN news show Anderson Cooper 360°. The program is normally broadcast live from a New York City studio; however, Cooper often broadcasts live on location for breaking news stories. As of September 2011, he also serves as host of his own eponymous syndicated daytime talk show, Anderson Live, which will be cancelled at the end of the second season.[2]

…. During college, Cooper spent two summers as an intern at the Central Intelligence Agency. Although he technically has no formal journalistic education, he opted to pursue a career in journalism rather than stay with the agency after school,[13] having been a self-proclaimed “news junkie” since he was “in utero.”[14] After his first correspondence work in the early 1990s, he took a break from reporting and lived in Vietnam for a year, during which time he studied the Vietnamese language at the University of Hanoi.[15] — Wikipedia

Other media icons such a Piers Morgan have possible intelligence ties and at the least are accepting of their master bribes. Morgan has formerly been implicated in a British hacking scandal essentially showing some connection to an intelligence operation as talk show hosts and actors typically are not hackers.

The Huffington Post reported:

Piers Morgan was not treated too kindly by the just-released Leveson Report, which called his testimony about phone hacking “utterly unpersuasive.”

The CNN host and former British tabloid editor gave testimony to the inquiry into the ethics of the British press back in December. There, he was confronted with past statements he had made about phone hacking, both in his book and in interviews. Other witnesses also testified that he told them how to hack into phones.

While Morgan has freely admitted to knowing about the practice, he has vociferously denied allegations that he condoned it at the Mirror, and no concrete evidence has ever been found tying him to hacking. The newspaper has, however, been sued by people who claim their phones were hacked during his editorship.

Lord Justice Leveson, who chaired the inquiry, devoted a small chunk of his voluminous report to Morgan’s testimony. He concentrated on a 2007 interview Morgan gave in which he called phone hacking an “investigative practice that everyone knows was going on at almost every paper in Fleet Street for years.” Morgan said he was “passing on rumors.”

This is alarming as a British National comes out the day of the Sandy Hook School shooting demanding that all Americans firearms should be taken away. This globalist sponsored propaganda was later countered by radio talk show host and filmmaker Alex Jones in what some would call a controversial interview on Piers Morgans CNN show.

Megyn Kelly

Megyn Kelly

According to the Fox News official website, “Megyn Kelly currently anchors “America Live,” (1-3 p.m. ET), a daytime news program on Fox News Channel (FNC), which launched in February of 2010. She previously co-anchored “America’s Newsroom” with Bill Hemmer (9-11 a.m. ET) and appears weekly on “The O’Reilly Factor” in a segment entitled The Kelly File. Throughout her tenure with FNC, Kelly has covered breaking news and has reported live from numerous political events….

… During the 2007 Virginia Tech campus massacre, Kelly reported live from Blacksburg, Virginia. Additionally, she was in Huntington, Utah as rescue efforts were underway for six trapped miners.

Kelly notably covered the Duke University rape case involving three of the school’s lacrosse players. Reporting from Durham, North Carolina, she broke new details that would ultimately help exonerate the defendants.”

Recently Kelly made on-air remarks during a Fox News broadcast and referencing and essentially calling for the removal of constitutional rights (our freedom of speech) in response to the victims families of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting and their alleged feelings toward bloggers and internet news publications like theintelhub.com which continue to point out facts and points that the mainstream media still fails to cover regarding what is being dubbed the most deadly school shooting in U.S. history.

Kucinich joins Fox News Channel

(TheHill) -Former Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) is joining Fox News Channel as a regular contributor, the network announced Wednesday.

 

Kucinich, the liberal firebrand and former two-time presidential candidate, will make his first appearance on the channel on Thursday night during “The O’Reilly Factor,” according to The Associated Press.

“Through 16 years in Congress and two presidential campaigns, Fox News has always provided me with an opportunity to share my perspective with its enormous viewership,” Kucinich said in a statement. “I look forward to a continuation of our relationship, this time as a Fox News contributor.”

Fox News CEO Roger Ailes praised Kucinich in a statement, saying he’s always been impressed with the former congressman’s “fearlessness and thoughtfulness about important issues. His willingness to take a stand from his point of view makes him a valuable voice in our country’s debate.”

The Matrix-like reality created by our media

The Matrix(Redressonline.com) Carl Bernstein, of “All the President’s Men” fame, has a revealing commentary in theGuardian today, though revealing not entirely in a way he appears to understand. Bernstein highlights a story first disclosed earlier this month in the Washington Post by his former journalistic partner Bob Woodward that media mogul Rupert Murdoch tried to “buy the US presidency”.

A taped conversation shows that in early 2011 Murdoch sent Roger Ailes, the boss of his most important US media outlet, Fox News, to Afghanistan to persuade General David Petraeus, former commander of US forces, to run against Barack Obama as the Republican candidate in the 2012 presidential election. Murdoch promised to bankroll Petraeus’s campaign and commit Fox News to provide the general with wall-to-wall support.

Murdoch’s efforts to put his own man in the White House failed because Petraeus decided he did not want to run for office. “Tell [Ailes] if I ever ran,” Petraeus says in the recording, “but I won’t … but if I ever ran, I’d take him up on his offer.”

The pair [journalists Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward] presumably expected the story [Murdoch’s attempt to buy the US presidency] to prompt congressional hearings into Murdoch’s misuse of power, parallel to investigations in the UK that have revealed Murdoch’s control of politicians and the police there.

Bernstein is rightly appalled not just by this full-frontal attack on democracy but also by the fact that the Washington Post failed to splash with their world exclusive. Instead they buried it inside the paper’s lifestyle section, presenting it as what the section editor called “a buzzy media story that … didn’t have the broader import” that would justify a better showing in the paper.

In line with the Washington Post, most other major US news outlets either ignored the story or downplayed its significance.

We can probably assume that Bernstein wrote his piece at the bidding of Woodward, as a covert way for him to express his outrage at his newspaper’s wholesale failure to use the story to generate a much-deserved political scandal. The pair presumably expected the story to prompt congressional hearings into Murdoch’s misuse of power, parallel to investigations in the UK that have revealed Murdoch’s control of politicians and the police there.

As Bernstein observes: “The Murdoch story – his corruption of essential democratic institutions on both sides of the Atlantic – is one of the most important and far-reaching political/cultural stories of the past 30 years, an ongoing tale without equal.”

What Bernstein cannot understand is why his media masters don’t see things the way he does. He reserves his greatest dismay for “the ho-hum response to the story by the American press and the country’s political establishment, whether out of fear of Murdoch, Ailes and Fox – or, perhaps, lack of surprise at Murdoch’s, Ailes’ and Fox’s contempt for decent journalistic values or a transparent electoral process.”

But in truth neither of Bernstein’s explanations for this failure is convincing.

A far more likely reason for the US media’s aversion to the story is that it poses a danger to the Matrix-like wall of static interference generated by precisely the same media that successfully conceals the all-too-cosy relationship between the corporations (that own the media) and the country’s politicians.

…the story reveals the charade of that electoral game, one in which powerful corporate elites manipulate the system through money and the media they own to restrict voters’ choice to two almost-identical candidates. Those candidates hold the same views on 80 per cent of the issues.

The Petraeus story is disturbing to the media precisely because it tears away the façade of US democratic politics, an image carefully honed to persuade the American electorate that it chooses its presidents and ultimately decides the direction of the country’s political future.

Instead, the story reveals the charade of that electoral game, one in which powerful corporate elites manipulate the system through money and the media they own to restrict voters’ choice to two almost-identical candidates. Those candidates hold the same views on 80 per cent of the issues. Even where their policies differ, most of the differences are quickly ironed out behind the scenes by the power elites through the pressure they exert on the White House via lobby groups, the media and Wall Street.

The significance of Woodward’s story is not that it proves Rupert Murdoch is a danger to democracy but rather that it reveals the absolute domination of the US political system by the global corporations that control what we hear and see. Those corporations include, of course, the owners of the Washington Post.

The saddest irony is that the journalists who work within the corporate media are incapable of seeing outside the parameters set for them by their media masters. And that includes even the most accomplished practitioners of the trade: Woodward and Bernstein.

FOX mogul wanted David Petraeus to run for President in 12′

(RT) -The president of Fox News sent a reporter to Afghanistan with a message for Gen. David Petraeus shortly before he was appointed head of the CIA in 2011: News Corp. thinks you should run for president.

Both Roger Ailes, the head of Fox News, and Rupert Murdoch, the CEO of parent company and media conglomerate News Corporation, were interested in seeing Gen. Petraeus toss his hat into the 2012 presidential race. The news comes courtesy of a just published recording of a conversation between Ailes and Fox News national security analyst Kathleen T. McFarland that was provided to the Washington Post.

Bob Woodward, a longtime Post journalist and one of the reporters credited with exposing the Watergate scandal of the Nixon administration, was given access to the audio and reports this week on a presidential ticket that may have almost been.

According to Woodward’s take on the tape, both Ailes and Murdoch floated the idea of endorsing Gen. Petraeus as a presidential contender, at least to some degree, and the Fox News chief urged McFarland to make their intentions known on the then-commander of US troops in Afghanistan during a Spring 2011 interview.

The “advice to you from Roger Ailes is. . . . He says that if you’re offered [JCS] chairman, take it. If you’re offered anything else, don’t take it; resign in six months and run for president,” McFarland says in the recording.

“I’m only reporting this back to Roger. And that’s our deal,” she told him, to which Gen. Petraeus responded that any answer “has to be off the record.”

“His deal with me was that I was only supposed to talk to you,” McFarland said. “And he is a little paranoid, so believe me, he doesn’t have anybody in that room.”

“Tell him if I ever ran,” Petraeus told her in a light-hearted tone, “but I won’t . . . but if I ever ran, I’d take him up on his offer.”

“He said he would quit Fox . . . and bankroll it,” the general told her

“Bankroll it?” McFarland asked.

“Or maybe I’m confusing that with Rupert,” Petraeus responded.

“I know Roger, he’s done okay,” McFarland countered, “but . . . no, I think the one who’s bankrolling it is the big boss.”

“Okay,” McFarland said, “the big boss is bankrolling it. Roger’s going to run it. And the rest of us are going to be your in-house.”

Since being provided with the audio recording of the encounter, the Post has reached out to all parties involved to find out if any of the matters discussed were seriously considered by either Petraeus or the president of Fox. Murdoch, who is no stranger to stirring up matters within US politics, did not respond to calls for comments by the Post.

Weighing in with Woodward, though, Fox chief Ailes says he thinks McFarland made more of a to-do with his request than he intended.

“It was more of a joke, a wiseass way I have,” he said. “I thought the Republican field [in the primaries] needed to be shaken up and Petraeus might be a good candidate.”

Ailes added, “It sounds like she thought she was on a secret mission in the Reagan administration. . . . She was way out of line. . . . It’s someone’s fantasy to make me a kingmaker. It’s not my job.”

On his part, Petraeus never had to quite consider the offer, serious or not. Within weeks he was appointed the head of the Central Intelligence Agency, a post he held until just last month when he resigned amid a highly publicized sex scandal.
