Every American should be paying attention to what the fully weaponized Communist O’Biden regime is doing to silence all political opposition and stomp out free speech. The federal government is pulling out all stops to silence its critics, truth-tellers, truth-seekers, meme-makers, and mockers of a system captured by the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) model of censorship and punishment for the non-compliant. Anyone posting to social media sites, writing, or otherwise exercising their Constitutional right to free speech is a target for criminal investigation by Communist/NWO overlords and their minions who are embedded in every government intitution. WE ARE ALL TARGETS.

Consider the case of Douglass Mackey, a “social media influencer” known as Ricky Vaughn on Twitter. The case is not new, but is (or should be) in the news as he is currently standing trial in the Eastern District of New York (EDNY) under federal charges. Mackey, of West Palm Beach, Florida was charged over two-years ao, on January 22, 2021, and taken into custody on January 27, 2021 “on charges of conspiring with others in advance of the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election to use various social media platforms to disseminate misinformation designed to deprive individuals of their constitutional right to vote.”

Mackey is on trial for allegedly violating 18 USC § 241, known as “Conspiracy against rights.” According to the law:

If two or more persons conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same; or

If two or more persons go in disguise on the highway, or on the premises of another, with intent to prevent or hinder his free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege so secured—

They shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, they shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death.

So what exactly did Douglas mackey do to warrant being charged under this obscure law that originated from the Klu Klux Klan Act of 1871? Did he conspire with others, using social media, to show up at polling places during the 2016 election with weapons, like this?

NOPE. He posted memes to Twitter. Read the Complaint and Affadavit in support of an arrest warrant:

Complaint and Affadavit in Support of Arrest Warrant

So what were the most egregious memes that were posted by Mr. Mackey? Well, let’s take a look, shall we?

Oh the horror! You must be kidding me. FIVE YEARS AFTER THE 2016 ELECTION, the US Department of Justice arrested Douglass Mackey under an 1871 law known as the Klu Klux Klan Act for posting the above memes on Twitter in 2016. The satirical “ads” were made to resemble an ad created by the Hillary Clinton campaign. No reasonable or sensible person, however, would possibly believe that you could cast a vote by texting or by voting the day after election day by posting a hashtag on Facebook, right? RIGHT?

The Obama-Biden-Communist-CCP-Maoist DoJ, with Merrick Garland at the helm, alleges that about 4900 people sent a text or were otherwise deceived, which constituted a conspiracy to deprive them of the right to vote. Mackey was released from custody after US Magistrate Judge Roanne L. Mann formalized Mackey’s $50,000 personal recognizance bond during a brief telephone arraignment on February 3, 2021.

Remember the 2008 presidential election? On Election Day, Nov. 4, 2008, the New Black Panther Party sent 300 members to polling places across Philadelphia. At one location, Jerry Jackson and King Samir Shabazz, carrying a nightstick, stood outside dressed in black, official-looking garb. The two were accused of making intimidating remarks to voters, both black and white. Then Attorney General Eric Holder refused to press charges and, of course, “fact checkers” backed him up because, well, you know… “Fact Check: Reports of voter ‘intimidation’ appear exaggerated” [SOURCE]. Remember, it’s NOT voter intimidation when the New Black Panther Party shows up en masse with nightsticks and other weapons.

For Douglass Mackey, it gets worse. Mackey’s trial is being held at the Theodore Roosevelt Federal Courthouse in Brooklyn, New York, where the court ruled that “all jurors must have been vaccinated” to sit in judgment on his case. There is more – much more, but for now, the key takeaway is that this case will set the stage for anyone concerned about freedom of speech, the First Amendment to the the US Constitution, and our individual and collective future.

More to follow.

Despite assertions by Hillary Rodham Clinton that the Uranium One scandal has been debunked as “fake news,” there exists ample evidence to suggest otherwise—with additional corroborating evidence being revealed almost daily. In today’s environment where few people care to read a report that extends beyond a sentence or two, the facts behind the Uranium One scandal are often readily dismissed due to its transactional complexity, the complicity of those involved, and the media’s collusion in keeping this story under wraps.

That is beginning to change, however, as more information is being forced into the open by a precious few members of the conservative media and truth-seeking journalists. In the mainstream media, Sean Hannity has taken point on exposing this wholesale web of corruption and sale of our national security. His frequent guests including John Solomon of The Hill and Sara Carter of Circa news have also been at the forefront.

Uranium One “scandal”  Timeline

Perhaps the most damning evidence today, however, exists in the form of a FBI informant who possesses video and audio evidence and documentation to support the allegations of the use of positions of power and influence to sell one of our nation’s most important natural resources, and the abuse of power to cover it up.

Peter Schweizer, author of Clinton Cash, The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich, was one of the first to document the story behind what has become known as the Uranium One scandal. Mr. Schweitzer painstakingly detailed the events that led to the transfer of 20% of uranium from the United States to Russia through a complex and confusing maze of domestic and foreign businesses. Building upon that foundation, the American public is now learning much more. The information being uncovered is creating an even stronger case of self-enrichment at the cost of national security.

The Uranium One “scandal” is not a scandal at all, but a host of potential crimes against the United States. Not just one crime, but many overlapping crimes. It not only involves the Clintons, but many others who potentially conspired to use their positions of power and political influence to facilitate one of the most egregious crimes against America—and others who assisted in covering it up.

The following is presented as a detailed (but not exhaustive) outline, in chronological format, of key people and events comprising what is known as the Uranium One scandal. It is intended as a reference resource for those truly desirous to understand the depth and scope of one of the most disturbing allegations of criminality in modern U.S. history.

September 6, 2005: Former U.S. President Bill Clinton and Canadian billionaire Frank Giustra appear together in Almaty, Kazakhstan. The stated purpose of their trip was allegedly humanitarian, where they were to help HIV/AIDS patients gain access to certain drug therapies. Interestingly, Kazakhstan, a nation of 15.4 million, did not have an HIV/AIDS problem as pointed out by Peter Schweitzer. In fact, only about 1,500 people in Kazakhstan needed such treatment.

Kazakstan, however, has rich natural resources estimated at $5 trillion, including uranium.

Interestingly, the Almaty trip was also organized, in part by Sergi Kurzin, who once worked for the former federal fugitive Marc Rich, who was pardoned by Clinton on his last day as President.

Giustra, at the time of that trip, was the head of UrAsia Energy Ltd. During this trip, Giustra reportedly met with Kazakhstan officials to securing uranium mining contracts.

While the Giustra-Clinton partnership began publicly in 2005 through the establishment of the Clinton-Giustra Sustainable Growth Initiative, Clinton and Giustra have a rich history as well that predates 2005 and traces back to Arkansas and mutual friends, Jean-Raymond Boulle and Jim Blair.

September 7, 2005: Hillary Clinton, former Senator for New York and then-member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, threatened to withhold aid to Kazakhstan unless and until the UrAsia mining deal went forward amid political bureaucracy inside Kasakhstan.

September 8, 2005: Giustra’s UrAsia Energy Ltd was awarded Kazakhstan mining rights from Kazatomprom, the atomic energy agency for Khazakhstan. UrAsia suddenly became the world’s largest uranium mining producer.

February 2006: Frank Giustra donates $31.3 million to the Clinton Foundation.

August 2006: FBI Director Robert Mueller, in conjunction with the CIA reportedly begins an investigation into uranium smuggling/corruption from the former Soviet Republics.

February 2007: The head of Kazatomprom, Mukhtar Dzhkishev, meets with Bill Clinton at his Chappaqua residence to work out a new business deal with Frank Giustra.

Also that same month, Uranium One buys UrAsia Energy Ltd for $3.1 billion. However, this was not a typical purchase, but a reverse merger. Giustra and his associates maintained a 60% controlling interest in UrAsia Energy Ltd. Giustra and associates announce a recurring commitment to donate $100 million and half of future profits to the Clinton Foundation. The deal would ultimately result in an estimated $145 million in contributions to the Clinton Foundation.

June 2007-June 2008: Uranium One begins to purchase U.S. mines, acquiring sites in multiple states in the United States, including Wyoming (representing 20% of U.S. uranium deposits).

August 2008: Then FBI Director Robert Mueller was notified of alleged corruption and bribery involving a Uranium One and Rosatom State Atomic Energy Corporation deal in the state of Wyoming and elsewhere.

January 20, 2009: Barack Hussein Obama becomes the 44th President of the United States.

January 29, 2009: Hillary Rodham Clinton becomes the U.S. Secretary of State.

February 3, 2009: Eric Holder becomes U.S. Attorney General

June 4, 2009: Rosatom State Atomic Energy Corporation (Rosatom) established in 2007, the regulatory body of the Russian nuclear complex and the body that controls the Russian nuclear arsenalsecures a 17% ownership stake in Uranium One, marking the beginning of an aggressive campaign to control the U.S. uranium market. The head of Roasatom is Sergei KirIyenko, former energy minister and then prime minister of Russia (the latter during the Clinton presidency).

Note: Rosatom also built the Bushehr nuclear reactors in Iran and supplies Iran with uranium.

Wikileaks Revelations: Diplomatic cables sent to Hillary Clinton in 2009 and during her tenure as Secretary of State confirmed that she knew of Moscow’s nuclear ambitions via Rosatom in Ukraine and Kazakhstan, and knew that Russian military intelligence (GRU) was directly behind these nuclear ambitions.

June 9, 2009: Kazakhstan government arrests head of Kazatomprom (former Clinton Chappaqua guest Mukhtar Dzhkishev) on charges related to Uranium One deal corruption. The reason? Putin wanted the uranium in Kazakhstan and put pressure on Kazakhstan’s dictator to keep his hands off the uranium. This prompted the arrest Dzhkishev and jeopardized the sale of Kazakhstan’s uranium to Rosatom. The Clinton State Department intervened. Hillary Clinton used her position to threaten to withhold financial aid to Kazakhstan, which resulted in the Rosatom purchase to proceed.

June 12, 2009: Rod Rosenstein, U.S. Attorney for Maryland, reportedly begins an investigation into bribery and corruption regarding Uranium One and Rosatom deals. It is important and perhaps relevant to note the existence of the FBI informant William Campbell who was “outed” by U.S. intelligence and whose name was provided to the media in November 2017.

The reason for Rosenstein’s involvement is simple and relates to the existence of the government whistleblower (Mr. Campbell). The Russian commercial agent responsible for the sale and transportation of uranium from disassembled nuclear warheads from Russia to the U.S. is Tenex, a subsidiary of Rosatom. The U.S. arm of Tenex is known as Tenam USA, based in Bethesda, MD and headed by Vadim Mikerin. Mikerin was responsible for managing Rosatom/Tenex contracts with U.S. uranium purchasers, thus giving him leverage over U.S. companies. He used this leverage to extort and defraud U.S. contractors into paying highly inflated prices for uranium, enriching Kremlin officials and compromised the companies who paid the bribes.

More importantly, the informant learned from Mikerin (and others) that Rusian nuclear officials were trying to penetrate the inner circles of Bill and Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation.

September 21, 2009: Robert Mueller, then-FBI Director, personally delivers a 10-gram sample of highly-enriched uranium to the Russian government at the behest of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. This was learned through Wikileaks via Twitter (on May 17, 2017) in reference to a State Department cable. The uranium was allegedly confiscated from smugglers in Georgia, although raising legitimate questions about the role of Mueller with the Clintons and Uranium One.

Notably, Wikileaks released the controversial cable on May 17, the same day that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein tapped Mueller as an “independent” counsel to investigate any supposed Trump-Russian ties.

Mid 2009 through Late 2010: While Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton intervenes on multiple occasions on behalf of Uranium One/Rosatom and the inner workings of the transfer of the sale of U.S. uranium assets in her official capacity.

June 2010: U.S. intelligence agents break up Russian spy ring in the U.S., arresting ten-(10) sleeper agents/spies. A leading fundraiser for Hillary Clinton and Clinton friend was one of the spy ring targets.

June 29, 2010: While Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, Bill Clinton collected $500,000 (one-half million dollars) for a one-hour speech he delivered in Moscow, his first Moscow speech in five years. The speech was given at a seminar hosted by Renaissance Capital inMoscow, a Kremlin-controlled investment bank populated by former Russian intelligence agents with close ties to Putin.

October 22, 2010: The Committee on Foreign Investments (CFIUS) approves Rosatom-Uranium One merger. Hillary Clinton served as the titular head of CFIUS in her capacity as Secretary of State. Other committee members included the secretaries of the treasury, state, defense, homeland security, commerce and energy; the attorney general; and representatives from two White House offices (the United States Trade Representative and the Office of Science and Technology Policy). The President of the United States has the final approval of the merger and allowed it to proceed.

THE RESULT: “Uranium One and half of projected American uranium production were transferred to a private company controlled in turn by the Russian State Nuclear Agency.” – Peter Schweizer

Of important (and recent) note is that the FBI informant with direct knowledge and evidence of corruption, bribery, and other related crimes were allegedly never reported to CFIUS. Based on more recent research, this vital information was intentionally withheld by those at the highest levels within U.S intelligence agencies and the top judiciary position(s).

December 10, 2010: Rosatom completes its acquisition of Uranium One.

In 2013, Rosatom announced plans to take 100% control of Uranium One, a move that was hailed in Russia under the headline “Russia Nuclear Energy Conquers the World.”

It should be abundantly clear, from this rather abbreviated timeline alone, that U.S. government officials, including but not limited to Hillary Rodham Clinton as Secretary of State were instrumental in the selling of one of most precious natural resources to foreign interests for self-enrichment. Such enrichment is estimated to exceed $145 million in quid-pro-quo contributions from foreign entities, including and especially those representing Russia, to the Clinton Foundation funneled through shell corporations.

Barack Hussein Obama had not only the power but the responsibility to stop this transfer in the interest of our national security but failed to do so.

Then U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, who was informed of bribery and corruption related to the multiple transactions in the sale of one of our most strategic assets, also failed to intervene. His successor, Loretta Lynch, also failed to launch any investigation into the foreign dealings between Bill and Hillary Clinton, the Clinton Foundation and foreign nationals in this matter.

Former FBI Director Robert Mueller, who is now tasked with investigating Russian collusion between Russian and Donald Trump and his campaign officials, apparently did nothing as well. Nor did Rod Rosenstein.

The bottom line: The American people deserve answers. Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were executed on June 19, 1953 after being convicted of committing espionage for the Soviet Union. They were accused of transmitting nuclear weapon designs to the Soviet Union when, at that time, the U.S. was the only country with nuclear weapons.

Why is there an investigation of collusion between Russia, Donald Trump and the Trump campaign when there is smoking gun evidence of collusion and more between Russian and other foreign assets, Hillary and Bill Clinton and the Clinton Foundation?

Minutes after midnight this morning local time, shots rang out amid the presence of protestors and police gathered outside of the police station in Ferguson, Missouri. Two police officers on duty from neighboring departments were seriously wounded. One 32 year-old officer from Webster Groves was shot in the face, and a 41 year-old officer from St. Louis County was shot in the shoulder. Whether by pure luck or poor or perhaps incredible marksmanship, thankfully, both officers are expected to survive.

But something smells bad about this incident. I suspect we are being “gamed” in a manner few have bothered to consider.

Initial reports stated that the shots came from a gunman “embedded” within a group of protestors that gathered outside of the police department last night in response to the police chief’s resignation. His resignation, along with a number of other city employees, was the direct result of an extensive and scathing 105-page report released on March 4, 2015 by Eric Holder’s Department of Justice. That report was commissioned by Holder and Barack Obama after Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson was exonerated from any wrongdoing by a state grand jury related to the on-duty shooting death of Michael Brown.

Further investigation of the origin of the shots, however, found that the shooter was not embedded within the group of protestors, but far behind them, atop a knoll near Tiffin Avenue. The positioning of the shooter, the timing of the shots, and the timing of the shooting in general relative to the Justice Department’s report should be of serious concern and not dismissed out of hand.

Readers of my columns will recall my source within the Department of Homeland Security asserting that members within and associated with Obama and Holder were, and are, doing everything possible to foment a new racial divide, or plainly stated, cultivate a new race war. I have written prolifically about the planned, orchestrated take-down of America from within, with the exploitation of racial division being a key strategy and expertly employed as one of a series of methods of our own destruction.

Over the last few years, I have written extensively about my sources’ inside information about economic chaos as well, that will perhaps coincide or converge with this new race war being planned from the pit of the Potomac, the belt hole of the Beltway, by those who actually control the leaders and their agenda. It’s the destroy-us-from-within agenda.  Today, quite literally, we are seeing the race war being ratcheted up with Ferguson as “ground zero.”

A staged shooting?

It was during the early hours of this morning, within 30 minutes of the shooting in Ferguson that I was contacted by my source within the Department of Homeland Security. He conveyed his concern that the shooting was staged based on conversations with other officials in the days following the release of the March 4th Justice Department’s report. He stated that the report did not seem to have the “desired effect” on the general public as expected from those who had it commissioned. It went “flat” within the media, and there was also some pushback from some Ferguson officials. The situation behind the scenes was “tense,” he said.

This source stated that the protests that formed last night were coordinated by key members of one or perhaps two groups closely associated with organizations that can be traced back to “Soros money,” or groups funded by the infamous George Soros. “What troubles me is what I’ve been hearing about an event, or series of events, that are needed to usher in a ‘summer of 1968 on steroids.’  Something that would absolutely galvanize the public into opposing camps for a greater cause. And the cause,” he added, “is to create a reason to clamp down on guns, freedoms, and impose other restrictions that are inconsistent with our way of life. We’re talking about the complete transformation of our way of life as sketched out by the revolutionaries of the 1960s,” he stated.

According to this source, the shooting early this morning was completely out of place. “What happened in Ferguson should stand out like a sore thumb to anyone with a working brain. It was contrived, pre-planned, and purposely done, but not for the reasons people think. Everybody tends to think inside the box, and on this one [the shooting], people need to think bigger, because the lies are getting bigger and bolder, and the objectives more evident. The bottom-line objective here is chaos. Pure chaos. And from this orchestrated chaos will come tighter controls and more restrictions on freedom. The timing of this could not be better scripted, It’s right in front of everybody, but nobody seems to be seeing the bigger picture. The big picture is a total take-down of our country by the Marxists in power. Stand back and look at the larger view. This event is just one of many more that will unfold in the weeks and months ahead. Count on it,” he concluded.

Who benefits from the shooting?

In the investigation of a crime, one of the first and primary questions that must be asked is “who benefits?” Accordingly, before we hastily conclude that this was a random act of violence based on racial hatred, we must ask this one very basic but most important question: who stands to benefit the most from the shooting early this morning of two Caucasian police officers during a protest by a majority of Black protestors? What is the true motive of the shooting? Perhaps more importantly, will they ever identify the shooter, and if so, what will be the result?

To understand “who benefits,” you must not just look at the larger picture, but understand it.  The race war being organized serves as the backdrop for more draconian measures about to be implemented against each and every American. It is merely one aspect of a larger game afoot, part of a larger strategy that will weaken the social and moral fabric of America. It is one play in a series of plays that are designed to destroy our country, our sovereignty, national identity, and even our wealth. It is just one element of numerous events, having been planned long ago, being implemented to complete the takeover of our nation.

It is here that we must use our intellectual prowess to see through the agenda of those orchestrating the chaos. We must not be so naïve to accept what many believe to be the obvious.

We must look deeper, ask questions, demand answers and accountability. We must not rely solely on those congressmen who claim to represent us or our cause, for they have sold us and themselves out long ago for a seat at the globalist table. If history has taught us anything, we cannot expect the truth from those already subjugated to a higher power.

It is critical that we see through the globalist agenda that has found fertile ground in Ferguson. Do not be so quick to accept the official narrative once it is rolled out for public consumption.

Think. And above all, pray.

Longtime former CIA field operative turned whistleblower Robert “Tosh” Plumlee is currently in the crosshairs of a very angry Holder Justice Department for publicly posting 11 “questions” about Benghazi and the illegal weapons running operations being conducted by criminal elements within the U.S. government. Mr. Plumlee is no ordinary CIA whistleblower, however.

Because of his extensive history and knowledge of the criminal infiltration into the U.S. government, their methods and operations, Mr. Plumlee has become one of the most dangerous men to the criminal cabal operating at the highest levels of the U.S. government. The Holder Justice Department and the criminal “gatekeepers” within the CIA and other government agencies desperately want him silenced—and they absolutely intend to do just that.

Against the advice of many people, from his own attorney to those who care about his welfare in the face of direct and subtle threats, and under the reported threat of subpoena by U.S. Attorney General Holder himself, Mr. Plumlee laid it all out in stunning detail on the Wednesday, April 30, 2014 edition of The Hagmann Report. Based on information from his deep cover sources, the questions Mr. Plumlee formulated about Benghazi leave no doubt that criminal elements that exist within the highest levels of the U.S. government were engaged in a massive weapons smuggling operation based out of Benghazi and other locations in Libya.

His disclosures, in the form of 11 questions, validate the information I provided in nearly four dozen separate reports since the 2012 attacks. They expose that the operations of the criminal cabal that were operating under diplomatic cover are in direct violation of U.S. and international law. They are, in large part, responsible for the quarter-of-a-million deaths of men, women and children in Syria and the millions of refugees. Those numbers are still climbing, and the path being laid is taking us and the world to World War III.

Through their “gatekeepers,” a cover-up of unprecedented magnitude about what the takeover of Libya and the attack in Benghazi is really about continues. Under the direction and with the imprimatur of the highest levels of government, facilitated by the infiltrated and fully captured corporate media, the American people are being lied to, misinformed and misdirected about criminal actions that have global implications that are orchestrating a war to which we did not sign on.

The disclosures by Mr. Plumlee represent a very serious threat to the plans of the globalist war machine, and this criminal cabal is actively trying to cover it up and keep it secret from the American public and the world. This operation is, by orders of magnitude far greater than anything we have seen to date, including the operations known as Iran-Contra. Mr. Plumlee should know, for he admits and has testified before congress to transporting some 40 tons of cocaine into the U.S., while transporting tons of weapons, including automatic weapons and grenade launchers out of the U.S. into the hands of “rebels” during the Iran-Contra era.

At that time, Mr. Plumlee was told that the drug shipments coming into the U.S. were part of a drug interdiction program in the government’s war on drugs. When he learned that he was being used as a pawn in a much larger game of criminal geopolitical chess, he did what our laws required him to do; he testified about his actions and knowledge before a Congressional committee, and turned over his log books, maps and other supporting documentation so that the criminal enterprise could be exposed and stopped.

Once he provided his testimony, much of the information was immediately classified and he was gagged from talking about what he knew. Incredibly, his own testimony exceeded his security classification, which denied him access to his own records and testimony. That is one of the ways they are able to silence and bury the truth of a world that few Americans know exist.

The current plight of whistleblower Robert “Tosh” Plumlee began last October, when he posted 11 “questions” about Benghazi and the illegal arms running operations on Facebook. As quickly as they appeared in the social media stream, the CIA and the Department of Justice instructed him to remove those questions from the public domain and remain forever silent about the covert and highly illegal weapons running operations being conducted. Despite his classification as a photojournalist with Salem-News that provided him the legitimacy to report on Benghazi, he complied.

When certain revelations about Benghazi were recently made public, Mr. Plumlee knew that remaining silent was not an option. The deaths of four Americans weighed heavily on his conscious, and his own character and integrity would not allow him to be silenced, regardless of the threats to him. Accordingly, Mr. Plumlee decided to republish the 11 questions that provide insight into the activities being covertly performed by the U.S. government. His actions quickly caught the attention of the government “gatekeepers,” who are now reportedly coming at him with a vengeance to silence him and all further discussion about Benghazi.

Earlier this week, Mr. Plumlee was told by two high-level sources that a subpoena was being prepared by the Holder Justice Department, and would be soon served upon him. The purpose of such a subpoena is twofold. First, the government needs to legally silence him, which becomes automatic once he is under subpoena. Secondly, the government is desperately seeking the identity of his source(s) who provided him specific information about Benghazi. Mr. Plumlee knows what to expect as he has traveled this road during Iran-Contra. Unlike Iran-Contra, however, the stakes today are much greater, the crimes much more egregious, the death toll exponentially higher, and the political ramifications exceedingly greater than at any other time in history.

It is the sole objective of Mr. Plumlee to tell Americans, and the world, what he knows without any political spin. He wants us to know exactly what is going on under the direction of the criminal elements that exist within our government and a rogue element within the CIA operating under their authority. Before he could be served with a subpoena that is reportedly being prepared that would make it impossible for him to talk without facing prison, for this is how the government now treats whistleblowers, he laid it all out in his 90-minute interview.

For his candor and hours after the interview, he confided to me that he was informed by at least one highly placed government source that his public interview on our show was heard and documented by the Department of Justice. He was informed, as I was, that his disclosures angered the Department of Justice as well as some in the CIA hierarchy and other government offices, and that he had no “right” to discuss such matters. This, despite the inconvenient fact that he would be guilty of a felony by not disclosing illegal government operations to authorities. But when the authorities, or those we have elected to oversee and stop such egregiously illegal actions fail to do anything other than respond by asking for campaign contributions via form letters, he felt he had to go public. And so he did, with a clear conscious and without regard to the peril he now faces.

The corporate media, from MSNBC to Fox, have treated the issue of Benghazi as the “third rail” of subjects. They call it a scandal, but it’s not. It’s a crime, as is its cover-up. They have failed the American people by not holding government accountable for their illegal actions, which are only escalating as a result. MSNBC considers Benghazi a “myth” trumped up by a right-wing political agenda, while Fox considers the topic just too “edgy.” Meanwhile, the American public is being thrust into a covert war without our approval yet in our name, and the flagrant violations of U.S. and international law are being conducted with impunity. Continuing the cover-up will merely embolden the criminals and criminal element within our government and will cost more lives in the process. It is also leading us headlong into World War III.

We must continue to demand full disclosure by those we elected, and demand accountability by those in the media. We are running out of time.

The questions asked by Mr. Plumlee that the government wants so badly to censor remain, at least for now, on his Facebook page. They are reprinted here for your review. I suggest that everyone reading this demands answers, if not for the sake and future of Mr. Plumlee, then for the sake of our future.

  1. Is the United States secretly arming and supporting various factions of the Syrian Rebels with high-caliber impact weapons from The United States arsenals?
  2. Is the United States’ little-known Direct Commercial Sales Program, also known as ʻ‘The Blue Lantern Report”, being used as a ʻ‘cutoutʼ’ to secretly aid both sides of a Middle Eastern civil war?
  3. Is America again playing both sides against the middle for corporate gain as previously demonstrated by the Cuban Project of the fifties and sixties, as well as the Iran Contra fiasco of the eighties and the South American—Mexican Drug Wars of the nineties? It has been established via some field reports from the Middle East and some isolated media reports that the Direct Commercial Sales Program (DCSP) an American international program, which legally allows the United States to sell weapons to a host of foreign countries without monitoring those weapons after leaving our arsenals, stockpiles, and jurisdiction, has shipped High Impact weapons to Syrian Rebels during the last two years.
  4. I have to ask. What happens to those weapons after legally being sold via this program and they leave our control?
  5. Are they being monitored, traced, certified, and inventoried after arriving in other countries?
  6. Will our troops one day again face these American-made weapons on some foreign battlefield?
  7. Is this Direct Commercial Sales program a secret cash cow for many US Corporations, International arms merchants, its insiders, or affiliates?
  8. Is it possible this could be another ʻ‘off-‐‑the-‐‑booksʼ’ secret covert operation ran by the CIAʼ’s Special Tactical Unit, similar to the Iran-‐‑Contra operations of the eighties and the old Cuban projects of the fifties and sixties, where we supplied both sides weapons and escalated the conflict for personal and corporate gain?
  9. Could we be selling and supplying dangerous high-impact weapons, while aiding and financing both sides of a Civil War in Syria?
  10. Could we be escalating the Middle East conflict either knowingly or unintentionally providing weapons to both sides of the Syrian conflict? These are simple questions. I’m just asking:
  11. Did our Ambassador and others, weeks before they were murdered, notify our State Department and CIA that Syrian Rebels had obtained US Weapons, including “Stinger missiles’ from Jordan, Turkey, Pakistan, shipped from CIA safe houses?
  12. Were they told to “Stand Down?

What’s one of the most effective and expedient methods of taking a true incident and making it not only appear false but outrageously and demonstrably false? You know the kind of false I mean… the “urban legend” type of false, causing anyone who hears about the incident to immediately dismiss it and attack the messengers as conspiracy nuts?

The answer is playing out, in real-time, right before all of us, and we all need to understand the methods that are being used to cover the lie. To answer the question, though, is for a government official or agency to take what is true, and wrap it in the bait of a more significant lie where the larger, more outrageous lie is proven untrue. Soon, people don’t know what to believe, so they discount the entire story, even (and especially) the kernel of truth covered by the lie. Then, when anyone refers to the incident, they are told that the entire story was proven false.

I am referring to the allegations that the Holder Justice Department “wiretapped” the cloakrooms or the private, “members-only” areas just off the floor of the House and Senate. The story originated with the disclosure that the Associated Press received a letter from the Holder Justice Department last week stating that the government had obtained two months of telephone records that included each incoming and outgoing telephone number and the length of each call for over 20 different lines used by reporters. Additionally, the records also included personal lines for reporters and phones in the congressional press gallery.

Since the story broke, some lawmakers and others have gone public to decry the allegations that the Holder Justice Department “wiretapped” the Cloak Room. Wiretapping indicates real-time telephonic surveillance of the phone lines by Holder’s agents. Wiretapping is, of course, the incorrect word to describe the DOJ’s attack on our separation of powers through the questionable, if not illegal, use of his agency’s powers in a manner that seems to summon the ghost of J. Edgar Hoover during the darkest of times. The incorrect use of the word wiretapping was about all the tyrannical despots within the Obama regime needed to immediately and forcefully deny that any such surveillance had taken place—and be technically correct. Thus began the clever word games.

The truth, however, is even far more disturbing than the big lie. According to one intelligence official close to the situation who provided information specific to this incident, Holder’s Justice Department not only attacked the sacred separation of powers through his agency’s actions by obtaining the aforementioned telephone records, but what has yet to be disclosed is that all electronic communications data was included in this overreach. According to this source, the records not only included those within the cloakroom but in other areas throughout and within the Capitol. Not in real-time, of course, to maintain the infamous Nixonian plausible deniability amid the semantics serving to sully the truth.

The purpose is to identify the media contacts used by members of the House and Senate as they look for leaks in the house of the people. Do not fall for the redefinition of the word “is,” and don’t dismiss the lengths to which the Obama regime is going, through Holder’s Justice Department, to identify the leaks that might expose what’s really going on behind the scenes.

There will be more to follow.

As politically incorrect as this might sound before one gives it careful and thoughtful consideration, I’ve often stated the following during my many hours of talk radio. Imagine yourself standing among the rubble of what once were the World Trade Center towers, still smoldering and riddled with the carnage of nearly three thousand people in the wake of the 9/11 attacks just a few days earlier. Smell the sickening and acrid smoky haze of death as it invades your nostrils and clings to your clothes. Regardless of where you look, all 360 degrees of your vision is filled with nauseating devastation. Visualize the recovery efforts that surround you and listen to the sobbing as loved ones of the missing place photos on bulletin boards near Ground Zero, hoping and praying for a miracle that would never come.

Watch as others bring flowers, small stuffed animals and votive candles to the edge of makeshift fencing hastily erected to separate the crime scene from what still strives to be normalcy.  Like the rest of mainstream Americans, you are still stunned by the worst attacks on America since Pearl Harbor, ostensibly at the hands of some obscure Muslim group known as al Qaeda.

Now imagine that I walked up to you and told you that ten years from that date, a man named Barack Hussein Obama II, who as a youngster in Indonesia studied the Qur’an and as a man, publicly admitted that the Muslim call to prayer was “one of the prettiest sounds on earth at sunset,”  would occupy the White House. Then I proceeded to tell you that the construction of Islamic mosques would be at an all-time high across the United States, including the push for a new Islamic center less than a hundred yards of the very site on which we stood. I then added that a Muslim advocacy group known as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), having ties to the Muslim Brotherhood (the ideological predecessor of Qaeda and Hamas), would be heavily involved in shaping U.S. policies ranging from domestic security to the implementation of Sharia (Islamic law) inside the United States.

Still standing amid the smoking ruins, I proceed to tell you that this man in the Oval Office, after years of legal stonewalling against providing authenticated, historical documentation of his personal and professional life, including his own Certification of Live Birth, was pressured into providing a copy of his Certificate of Live Birth that a commissioned law enforcement body in Arizona deemed a forgery. Not only is the man in the Oval Office Constitutionally ineligible to hold that position under the Natural Born Citizen Clause of the U.S. Constitution, but veteran investigators of that law enforcement body deemed the document that he ultimately provided to be a forgery!

As you continue to gaze at the destruction, you see not only the sadness of the people nearby, but hear comments from others that indicate an anger unlike this generation has ever seen. On trucks, recovery vehicles and elsewhere, you see the American flag gently flapping in the breeze, and tell me that I’m crazy and that you’ve heard enough. It would never happen in America, and tell me that we will exact our revenge to emerge victorious over the evil that descended upon us just days earlier. You note that churches and synagogues have been filled to capacity since the attacks, and have been assured by President George W. Bush that we will identify and punish those who did this, and the nations who aided and abetted them.

Before you walk away from my narrative of conspiratorial madness, you allow me a few more seconds to continue. I then tell you that the man in the Oval Office will not only apologize for America’s historical foreign policy to the Muslim world, but embrace the very entities behind the attacks. He will be the impetus behind a major change of the landscape in the Middle East that not only allows for our abandonment of Israel, but an antagonism toward our ally. It’s all part of a larger, more sinister globalist plan of an Islamic-Marxist alliance that’s been planned and in place for decades. He will open his office, and the whole of the U.S. government, to the Muslim Brotherhood, and will not only change fundamentally America, but will “change the world.”

Convinced of my lunacy, you hastily leave, walking over the dust covered but still visible bloodstain on the walkway where at least one of the bodies landed after jumping from the raging inferno inside one of the towers. Averting your eyes, you take comfort in what’s visible around you. It’s men, women and even recovery dogs working together, on a mission to do what Americans do. Unite, recover, rebuild. The visible signs are everywhere, contrary to the narrative of the future I shared with you.

Back to the present day, I now ask that you be as intellectually honest with yourself as possible as you consider what your reaction would have been at that time, in that place and under the circumstances I described. Frankly, even I would have departed in disbelief.

In fairness, the few Americans in September, 2001 outside of the 13th Congressional district of Illinois or fellow politicians knew the name of the man known as Barack Obama II, who was serving only his second term as a state senator. Few could have anticipated his meteoric rise from a community organizer just over a half decade before to White House denizen. I suspect that even fewer would have envisioned the rapid changes to the geopolitical landscape that resulted from this man after assuming the seat of power over the free world.

Egypt: Obama’s staging ground

I imagine that few people, from the vantage point of “ground zero” in the immediate days following 9/11, could have predicted the events described above a decade in advance. Unless, of course, you are one of the planners, one of the men behind the proverbial curtain. But let’s take a look at what looked like lunacy in 2001.

On June 4, 2009, less than six months after assuming office, Barack Hussein Obama II delivered a speech in Cairo, Egypt, that ushered in dramatic changes within the Muslim world that would forever alter the political landscape of the Middle East. Perhaps acting in response to correspondence by Sheikh Yusuf Qaradawi, spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, Obama is openly apologetic to the Muslim world while being passively aggressive to the nation of Israel, our only democratic ally in the Middle East. At the same time, he opens his arms to the Muslim Brotherhood while tactically omitting any reference or acknowledgment to then-Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak.

Less than a year later, Obama advances the agenda of the Muslim Brotherhood by appointing a young lawyer named Rashan Hussain to the position of Special Envoy to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation. This post was created by George W. Bush in 2008, ostensibly to promote mutual understanding and dialogue between the United States and Muslim communities around the world. Hussain has tangential ties to the Muslim Brotherhood via common and connected entities.

That same year, the United States State Department under the direction of Hillary Rodham Clinton, lifts the visa ban on Tariq Ramadan, the Egyptian-born grandson of Muslim Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna. Also in 2010, Rashan Hussain wastes no time in meeting with Tariq Ramadan at a U.S. sponsored conference, and meets with the Mulsim Brotherhood’s grand mufti in Egypt.

Promoting change in Egypt, the man called Obama has a private meeting with Ahmed Aboul Gheit, Egypt’s foreign minister. Gheit recounts the meeting to an audience of millions on Egyptian television that “the American president [Obama] told me in confidence that he is a Muslim.”

Events in Egypt move quickly, and the Mubarak government loses the support of the United States. Muslim Brotherhood Sheikh Yusuf Qaradawi calls for “days of rage” in Egypt and throughout the Middle East, ultimately prompting riots in Egypt and elsewhere. Within months, Qaradawi, who was in exile from Egypt for 30 years, is welcomed back after the orchestrated fall of Mubarak.

The power vacuum that exists in post-Mubarak Egypt is quickly filled by the Muslim Brotherhood with the help of the U.S. State Department. It is at this time that Egypt’s new power structure advises Israel and the rest of the world that the peace treaty with Israel will be null and void.

On the home front

While the Muslim Brotherhood assumes control in Egypt, Obama, who has yet to visit Israel, makes demands that Israel revert land back to the Palestinians, calling for Israel to go back to their indefensible 1967 armistice lines. Obama also authorizes $1.5 billion in foreign aid to the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas in Egypt, while instructing his Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, to assure congress that the Muslim Brotherhood has changed from its extremist roots to a secular organization. The birthing of tolerance that began under Bush 43 has led to full nurturing under Obama.

Obama also orders Department of Justice head Eric Holder to cease and desist any further criminal prosecution of the Muslim Brotherhood front groups and offshoots identified as co-conspirators who ultimately funded Hamas and other Islamic terror groups.

The Hillary Clinton State Department, meanwhile, dispatches William Taylor, special envoy to the Middle East and an associate of members to the Muslim Brotherhood, to Egypt to assist in the transition from the Mubarak regime.

It is disclosed that Hillary Clinton’s “body person,” Huma Abedin, the wife of disgraced Congressman Anthony Weiner, has close and personal ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and by association, to Muslims connected to al Qaeda. This is further detailed in correspondence from U.S. House of Representative Michelle Bachman.

Obama’s Muslim, Marxist and Communist agenda

Today, well over a decade after the attacks of 9/11, we find infiltration of Islamists, Marxists, Communists and globalists in nearly every area of American government. What Progressives have gleefully praised as a wave of democracy sweeping the Middle East known as the Arab Spring is nothing more than the foundation for a New World Order, where Islamists and the Muslim Brotherhood are working in conjunction with their secular partners to forever change the geopolitical landscape of the Middle East. Egypt is just one country, one regime, one piece of the global puzzle. There have been others, and there will be more.

Looking though the current Middle East situation through the prism Obama the Progressive, the Marxist or Muslim, one thing is clear. Obama exists and remains in the Oval Office to advance a specific agenda. He was selected as the man for the job based on his past, the part to which we are not privy. And therein lies the importance of his Certificate of Live Birth, his identity and his past associations. It’s about his allegiance and agenda. His agenda, in part, was set for him. It is an ambitious globalist agenda, one that will neutralize the United States while elevating the very people, groups and nations that attacked us on 9/11. But that’s only the first part. The rest of the agenda has yet to be implemented.

Lunacy? Let’s talk in ten years, perhaps when we stand on the rubble of what once was.

As U.S. Attorney General, Eric Holder frequently testifies before the House Judiciary Committee. He was scheduled to appear before the committee on May 3, 2011, and ultimately provided just over three-and-a-half hours of testimony, available here in its entirety.

During that hearing, Holder was questioned about Project Gunrunner and Operation Fast & Furious on two notable occasions. Holder was asked direct questions by Congressman Darrell Issa (49th District of California)  about when he first learned of the operation, and who else knew about the project. This exchange begins about 90 minutes into the hearing, and Holder was elusive with his answers. He ultimately stated to the best of his recollection, he first became aware of the deadly operation within the last few weeks of that hearing.

Holder-Napolitano meet with Obama

The day before Holder was scheduled to appear before the House Judiciary Committee, U.S. White House logs show that Attorney General Eric Holder and DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano met with Barack Obama in the East Room of the White House on May 2, 2011. Omitted from the log are the nature and purpose of the visit.

The timing of the meeting is quite suspect based on Holder’s planned testimony the following day, the mounting pressure from Congressman Issa’s committee, and Holder’s stonewalling Issa’s request for documents related to Fast & Furious.

Foreknowledge memorialized in a press conference – in 2009

Two years earlier: On March 24, 2009, a 30-minute news conference was held at the White House by Press Secretary Robert Gibbs that included Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, newly appointed Deputy Attorney General David Ogden, and Deputy Secretary of State Jim Steinberg.

About 13 minutes into the press conference, Ogden, a man already mired in controversy over his opposition to internet filters to block child pornography sites and opposition to requiring parental notification for girls seeking underage abortions, was introduced to discuss joint DOJ and ATF operations.

Ogden, who had been on the job for a mere 12 days, referred to Project Gunrunner and other ancillary ATF programs by name, and stated that he was working directly with the Attorney General on the implementation of these programs that included Project Gunrunner. For reference purposes, the entire news conference is memorialized here.

It should be noted that Ogden resigned from his position in February 2010, less than a year later, after allegedly being at odds with Holder over undisclosed procedural issues.

The AG’s Inspector General

Each department of government is assigned an Inspector General, or an official to conduct an investigation of the individuals and actions of a particular department, if necessary, to determine whether any improprieties were committed or laws were broken. For the Department of Justice and the Fast & Furious investigation, that Inspector General would be Cynthia A. Schnedar.

As it turns out, however, Katie Pavlich, author of the book “Fast and Furious,” notes that Holder and Schnedar have connections that go back a long way. While Holder worked as a U.S. Attorney in Washington from 1994 through 1997, she was the Assistant U.S. Attorney, reporting to Holder. In other words, Holder was Schnedar’s boss. They also worked on legal briefs together, and filed over a dozen such briefs together during that period.

Now, Schnedar has been running interference for Holder, reportedly obstructing the procurement of documents requested and subpoenaed by Issa.

Just after 10:00 a.m. on March 23rd, 1973, John Dean, White House counsel to former President Richard M. Nixon, advised Nixon of “a cancer within-close to the presidency, that’s growing. It’s growing daily.” Within the same breath, he advised Nixon that “people are going to start perjuring themselves very quickly that have not had to perjure themselves to protect other people and the like.” That cancer became known as “Watergate” and eventually led to Nixon’s resignation.

Nearly forty years later, another “scandal,” exponentially larger than Watergate, has the potential to bring down the occupant of the oval office along with other high-ranking officials. While no one was murdered as a result of Watergate, two law enforcement officers are dead because of the current “scandal” that is leading closer and closer to the highest levels of the Obama administration, including the Department of Justice and the U.S. State Department.

Obama’s “war on guns”

After taking office, Barack Hussein Obama began a coordinated effort with U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to control the purchases and ownership of guns in the United States. To justify the implementation of tougher gun control laws and in a direct assault on the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, this administration cited a statement made to Congress by William Hoover, Assistant Director for Field Operations for the BATFE on February 7, 2008. According to that report, 90 percent of the weapons used by the Mexican drug cartels were purchased from or originated from the U.S.

That stunning revelation empowered the Obama administration to solicit public support for banning so-called assault weapons in the U.S., and calling for tougher gun control laws. The problem, however, is that the 2008 statement is disingenuous at best.

First and perhaps most transparent, it has been noted that only 1 in 5 guns that have been recovered in Mexico actually underwent any form of tracing, leaving 80% untraced. Accordingly, the 90 percent figure is already factually inaccurate.

Secondly and perhaps the most scandalous of all is that all figures cited by this administration pertaining to weapons tracing include weapons sold to the Mexican military via U.S. arms-trading policies under programs such as Direct Commercial Sales (DCS) initiatives. The fact is that the bulk of the arms used by the Mexican drug cartels did not – and do not originate from gun shop sales in the U.S., but from U.S. government sponsored programs that sell weapons and ammunition to the Mexican military as well as other third-world nations.

Many of the weapons used in Mexico and counted in border violence statistics actually arrived in that area from Central American countries involved in U.S. government-sanctioned programs administered by the Pentagon and with the knowledge and imprimatur of the U.S. State Department.

Interestingly, confirmation of the government’s programs and knowledge by government officials, particularly Hillary Clinton, was made public by the recent release of State Department cables published by Wikileaks. The cables prove that the U.S. State Department and Hillary Clinton knew the origins of the bulk of the weapons used by the Mexican drug cartels, although kept this information secret for the greater agenda of U.S. gun control.

Meanwhile, it appears that the Obama administration, via Eric Holder, used various weapons tracking programs already implemented to inflate the statistics involving guns originating in the U.S. to advance even tougher gun control measures.

Research and investigation indicate that a series of programs implemented under the umbrella of a government-sanctioned program known as “Project Gunrunner” was purposely exploited with the knowledge and consent of government officials at the highest levels.

Project Gunrunner

Part of the Southwest Border Initiative (SBI), Project Gunrunner was an operation that was started under the Bush administration. Ostensibly, the program was established to conduct surveillance, and identify and stop the flow of weapons from the U.S. into Mexico and eventually into the possession of drug cartels. The pilot project was initiated in Laredo, Texas, by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) in 2005.

In April of 2006, the program was expanded to a national level as a weapons interdiction program under the BATFE, formerly known as the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF).. Project Gunrunner also involved the use of an Internet-based weapon tracking system known as eTrace, a program that would permit participating law enforcement agencies to track the origin of confiscated or questionable guns, through their serial numbers, to their point of origin.

On April 10, 2008, former Attorney General Michael Mukasey briefed the U.S. Senate Committee on Appropriations on the status of the project. At that time, Mukasey stated that the “ATF has approximately 148 special agents…and 56 industry operation investigators (IOI) responsible for conducting regulatory inspections.” Mukasey also stated that the ATF “is also expanding its presence at the El Paso Intelligence Center (EPIC), which serves as the central repository and “clearinghouse’’ for all weapons-related intelligence collected and developed by ATF’s field personnel and attaches in Mexico as well as by all other Federal, State and local law enforcement entities involved in narcotics interdiction and investigation along the U.S./Mexico border.”

By 2009, Project Gunrunner resulted in approximately 650 criminal cases being filed against about 1400 defendants. These cases involved about 12,000 firearms.

It is relevant to point out here that “Project Gunwalker” is not the name of any ATF operation but a satirical moniker attached to Project Gunrunner.

Operation Fast & Furious

Under the Obama administration, “Operation Fast and Furious” was launched in early 2009. Under the umbrella of Project Gunrunner, The BATFE commissioned gun shops in the U.S. to sell weapons to known criminal suspects. Ostensibly, this operation was for interdiction purposes, but the agents involved were ordered not to interdict the weapons. What resulted was a mass amount of weapons that actually and genuinely originated in the U.S., with the knowledge and approval of the BATFE, being permitted to “walk” unmolested across the southern border (hence the satirical name “gunwalker”).

From early 2009 through December 2010, this process was repeated over and over in the southern U.S. despite the objections of numerous BATFE agents and gun shop owners. During this time, several agents began to notify congress and became “whistleblowers” about the stand-down orders.

On December 14, 2010, the inevitable happened. U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was gunned down in Rio Rico, Arizona by an AK-47 that was “walked” across the U.S. Mexican border with the knowledge and allowance of the BATFE.

In addition to Agent Terry, Immigration Customs Enforcement Agent Jaime Zapata was also killed in a separate incident by a weapon allowed to “walk” into Mexico from the U.S.

With the tragic death of agents Terry and Zapata, the blame began to shift to those knowledgeable about the operation, including the acting director of the BATFE, Kenneth Melson.

Much bigger than being reported

Unfortunately, the arguably illegal and certainly ill-advised methodology implemented by the BATFE is not limited to the Project Gunrunner offshoot of “Operation Fast & Furious.” Other similar operations, each with the apparent knowledge and approval of the U.S. Justice Department, began to spring up elsewhere. There was also Operation Castaway in Tampa, which mirrored the methods of lack of interdiction as Operation Fast & Furious.

According to several agents who are now ready to offer testimony, each operation where weapons were allowed to “walk” into Mexico from the U.S. was approved at the highest levels of the United States Department of Justice and the U.S. Department of State. Some believe that operations of this magnitude could not have been possible without the knowledge and approval of Obama himself.

Almost 40 years after the biggest scandal to rock the nation, it is again time to ask the question to Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama under oath and in front of congress: What did you know and when did you know it?

By Douglas J. Hagmann

In the U.S., under the Obama-Holder “Justice” Department, which can be considered a policy extension and acceleration of the former administration and Department of Justice policies in many ways, it is certain that “something really wrong is going on here.”

Many might recall the scene in the 1979 hit movie And Justice For All when star Al Pacino, cast as lawyer Arthur Kirkland, delivered his opening statement to the jury in the packed courtroom of Judge Francis Rayford, played by actor Jack Warden. Sick of the injustice system that would allow a guilty man to go free and innocent men jailed, Pacino stated about his own client, “That man is guilty! That man, there, that man is a slime! he is a slime! If he’s allowed to go free, then something really wrong is going on here!”

At that point, Judge Rayford angrily slammed his gavel and retorted, “Mr. Kirkland you are out of order!” Attorney Kirkland then responded with a full-throttle meltdown, shouting, “You’re out of order! You’re out of order! The whole trial is out of order! They’re out of order! […] It’s just a show! It’s a show!” As he was being dragged from the courtroom by bailiffs, Kirkland (Pacino) added,” Hold it! Hold it! I just completed my opening statement!”

The opening statement of this article bears repeating. “Something really wrong is going on here.”

Consider the following two unrelated cases, one involving a Marine who served two tours of duty in Iraq and was shot dead in his Tucson, Arizona, home by a Pima County SWAT team, and the other involving the raid on a Florida mosque where three Muslims were arrested on suspicion of providing aid to the Taliban. I don’t believe there can be two more different approaches than those represented by these two cases. One case involves a U.S. Marine veteran, the other a mosque whose leaders are under indictment for providing aid to the Taliban.

In the case of Jose Guerena, the Marine who served two tours of duty in Iraq, a Pima County, Arizona SWAT team was serving a narcotics conspiracy warrant at his home earlier this month. Guerena, who had been sleeping just two hours after working his shift at a local mine, was awakened by screams from his wife when she observed an unidentified man with a gun outside their home. She grabbed her baby and hid in a closet as Guerena grabbed a rifle and proceeded to investigate. He was shot dead inside the sanctity of his own home in the U.S. and not by some sniper in Iraq. In total, seventy-one rounds were fired at Guerena.

To make matters worse – much worse, medical treatment was withheld by the SWAT team, according to his widow and verified by police and medical logs. At this point, it would appear that Guerena was startled awake and, thinking he was protecting his family from a possible home invasion, stumbled onto a police raid. He never had a chance.

As a result of the lax border security at the hands of DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano, there has been a sharp rise in home invasions in Tucson over the last few years. Of course, one would not know that by the “cocky football spiking” Obama from his recent speech in El Paso, where he mocked and ridiculed anyone who dared to question the state of U.S.-Mexico border insecurity.

Consider the raid on a south Florida Mosque at about 6:00 a.m. Saturday, by dozens of heavily armed federal agents. They pounded on the door of the Masjid Jamaat Al-Mumineen mosque in Miami-Dade county, armed with warrants for Muslims who are suspected of a long-running conspiracy to murder, maim and kidnap people overseas in support of the Taliban. As morning prayers were in progress inside the mosque, the armed agents respectfully waited until the prayers ended, and then entered the mosque only after removing their footwear.

The raid at the mosque resulted in three arrests: Imam Hafiz Muhammed Sher Ali Khan and his two sons, Izhar Khan, and Irfan Khan. Irfan Khan was arrested in Los Angeles.

Additionally, three others named in the indictment are currently at large in Pakistan. They are identified as Ali Rehman (a/k/a Faisal Ali Rehman), Amina Khan (a/k/a Amina Bibi), the daughter of Hafiz Khan, and her son, Alam Zeb, who is also Khan’s grandson.

Yes, “something really wrong is going on here.”
