‘Justifiable Homicides’ by Police at Record High: Notes on Police Violence in America

FBI data released over the past month reveals that so-called ‘justifiable homicides’ reached a record high last year, while the number of officers killed in the line of duty fell to its lowest level in decades.
According to the data, which appeared in a Monday article on theWashington Post web site, 461 American civilians were killed by on-the-job police officers in 2013, while 27 police officers were killed by civilians.
The article notes the correlation between the record killings and the militarization of American police over the same period, ‘fueled by a glut of surplus military equipment heading home from Iraq and Afghanistan.’ The FBI’s ‘justifiable homicide’ figures increase steadily around 1998, the year after the start of the US Government’s Defense Logistics Agency’s 1033 program, which parcels out surplus military equipment to state and local police.
The FBI figures for ‘justifiable homicide,’ defined by the agency as ‘the killing of a felon by a law enforcement officer in the line of duty,’ is widely acknowledged to be an undercount, according to thePost, because the methodology is not uniform from state to state. There are no comprehensive nationwide statistics on police brutality, despite the government being required to do so by the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act passed in 1994. However, a Facebook page titled ‘Killed by Police,’ which posts links to news stories on police killings, has counted more than 1,450 killings by police officers since its launch on May 1, 2013…

Ferguson’s Violent Hangover and The Incredible Shrinking President

A verdict was returned, and Ferguson burned. Anyone who was really paying attention was hardly surprised.
It brought back memories of similar scenes; the 1965 Watts Riots, the Rodney King verdict and the subsequent 1992 LA Riots, and most recently the aftermath of the Zimmerman-Martin verdict in 2013. But this time it made little, if any sense.
Monday evening in Clayton, Missouri, St. Louis County prosecutor Robert McCulloch announced that a Grand Jury had delivered its decision for Officer Darren Wilson vs. Michael Brown. Five indictment charges were presented and the jury found ‘no probable cause’ and returned a ‘no true’ bill for all five charges. Tremors began to shake the streets almost immediately after…
See Full Ferguson Time Line Here
Professional street agitator of Freddy’s Fashion Mart fame, FBI supergrass, and (somehow) now a White House ‘advisor’, Al Sharpton, wasted no time getting in front of TV cameras and claiming that street outrage, rioting and looting were somehow ‘warranted’, and proceeded to deliver a veiled threat to the prosecutors office stating, ‘This is not our first rodeo McCulloch, we will deal with this in a way civil rights leaders have’.

Two FBI Agents Shot Near Ferguson Protests

While the second day of protests in Ferguson were far more contained as a result of the tripled presence of national guard troops in the St. Louis suburb, with media instead focusing on events in New York, LA and other major metropolitan centers, St. Louis violence failed to avoid the headlines for another day when shortly before 3 am, two FBI agents were shot early Wednesday morning in north St. Louis County.
Rebecca Wu, an FBI spokeswoman, says the shooting happened at approximately 2:53 a.m. She says two special agents were shot while helping the University City Police Department execute an arrest warrant at a home on North Hanley Road, near Monroe Avenue.
Quoted by USA Today, Wu says one agent was shot in the shoulder, the other was shot in the leg. Their injuries are non-life threatening. Police officials say someone is barricaded inside the home.

Obama’s Blueprint for the Destruction of America: The Decimation of Military Leadership

Since even before Obama assumed the Presidency, his mere presence in the 2008 election was an affront to every member of Congress that has Presidential aspirations. The foreign born and disbarred Barack Obama, who never held a real job in his life, and did not even serve one full term as a senator, was a slap in the face of our political system and all of those with much more experience were passed over for a ‘community activist’.
Obama Worse Than Woodrow Wilson As I have pointed out in Part Three of this series, Obama was not even vetted as a Presidential candidate by the FBI as required by law. Not since J. Edgar Hoover was complicit in the assassination of JFK, have we seen the FBI so manipulated and compromised in terms of validating Obama’s candidacy.
The day that Barack Hussein Obama took the oath of office, in January of 2009, was the day that the sun set on America. I never thought the country would ever see a President as corrupt, immoral and incompetent as Woodrow Wilson. After all, in 1913, Wilson worked towards eliminating tariffs, the American government’s mainstay of economic support since the country’s inception. Wilson, on behalf the globalists, replaced tariffs with the corrupt and unconstitutional income tax and of course the Federal Reserve which has eroded the dollar to a net value of 3 cents of worth today. Wilson lied us into World War I, he jailed legitimate protesters and he helped make it possible to usher in the direct election of senators which handed over the Senate to the globalists. Wilson even tried to sacrifice the nation’s sovereignty by handing over our nation’s political authority to the League of Nations which was the globalists first attempt at world governance and he would have succeeded had it not been for the Ron Paul of his day, Henry Cabot Lodge. I never thought that there could be anybody worse for the country than Woodrow Wilson, until now. Obama is the most treasonous and destructive force to ever occupy the White House.
Just how destructive is Obama? Is he just incompetent? I have said it before and I will say it again, Obama, like Wilson, is following a systematic plan. Wilson’s agenda was relatively tame compared to Obama’s. It was Wilson’s mission to hand off the control America to the banksters and economically enslave the nation in debt. Obama’s mission is much more nefarious as his objective is clearly based upon the goal of the total destruction of the United State as have known it.

Is Barack Obama Attempting To Harass And Intimidate Media Personalities On His ‘Enemies List’?

Someone is attempting to harass and intimidate media personalities that are very critical of Barack Obama and his administration. Whoever is doing this has extremely advanced technical capabilities. As you will see below, there is very strong anecdotal evidence that federal agents are involved. But these agents would never commit such actions on their own. It seems clear that they are getting orders from someone above them. Of course Barack Obama (or any of his top lieutenants) would never come out and publicly admit that Gestapo tactics are being used against media personalities on Obama’s rumored ‘enemies list’, but that appears to be precisely what is happening. Hopefully by shining a light on these activities it will cause those that are doing these things to cease and desist. And it is very important to point out that what is being done to these media personalities isillegal. Anyone that is involved in harassing media personalities because of what they are saying is violating federal law and is in danger of going to prison for a very, very long time.
Later in this article, I want to share with you the shocking harassment and intimidation that Rick Wiles of TruNews has been enduring lately. But first, let’s review what has happened to former CBS News reporter Sharyl Attkisson. She was an award-winning journalist for more than thirty years, but that didn’t stop the Obama administration from systematically harassing her. In her new book entitled Stonewalled: My Fight for Truth Against the Forces of Obstruction, Intimidation, and Harassment in Obama’s Washington, she makes some extremely startling claims. She believes that the harassment and intimidation that she experienced were the direct result of her determination to get to the truth about Benghazi, Fast and Furious, the green energy scandals and Obamacare. The following are some of the main points that she has been sharing with the media in recent weeks…
-While she was working at CBS News her computers were hacked by the government, her keystrokes were monitored and potentially incriminating classified material was planted on her hard drive.
-She says that her computers would ‘turn themselves on in the night, make strange noises, then shut themselves down’.
-An exhaustive examination of one of her computers found that it had been hacked by ‘a sophisticated entity that used commercial, nonattributable spyware that’s proprietary to a government agency: either the CIA, FBI, the Defense Intelligence Agency or the National Security Agency.’

Another Fake Bin Laden Story – Paul Craig Roberts

RT, one of my favorite news sources, has fallen for a fake story put out by the Pentagon to support the fantasy story that a SEAL team killed Osama bin Laden, who died a second time in Abbottabad, Pakistan, a decade after his first death from illness and disease. This fake story together with the fake movie and the fake book by an alleged SEAL team member is the way the fake story of bin Laden’s murder is perpetrated. Bin Laden’s alleged demise at the hands of a SEAL team was a propaganda orchestration, the purpose of which was to give Obama a hero’s laurels and deep six Democratic talk of challenging his nomination for a second term.
Osama bin Laden died in December 2001 of renal failure and other health problems, having denied in his last recorded video any responsibility for 9/11, instead directing Americans to look inside their own government. The FBI itself has stated that there is no evidence that Osama bin Laden is responsible for 9/11. Bin Laden’s obituary appeared in numerous foreign and Arabic press, and also on Fox News. No one can survive renal failure for a decade, and no dialysis machine was found in the alleged Abbottabad compound of bin Laden, who allegedly was murdered by SEALs a decade after his obituary notices.
Additionally, no one among the crew of the ship from which the White House reported bin Laden was buried at sea saw any such burial, and the sailors sent messages home to that effect. Somehow a burial was held onboard a ship on which there are constant watches and crew on alert at all hours, and no one witnessed it.

FBI uses fake ‘Associated Press’ article to infect computer with government spyware

OLYMPIA, WA – The FBI created a fake online newspaper article, masquerading as the Seattle Times, and used it to covertly install spyware on a targeted individual’s computer and gather his personal information.
The FBI’s controversial tactics were recently brought to light as the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) obtained federal documents detailing the little-known program.
Officially, the program is dubbed the Computer and Internet Protocol Address Verifier (CIPAV). The bureau uses the software to infect a target computer – unbeknown to its operator – with a program that will silently report to the government about the user’s activities and other information.
The CIPAV provides the FBI – at a minimum – with the ability to obtain targets’ IP addresses, MAC addresses, open ports, operating systems, running programs, installed application registration and version information, default web browser, and a log of time-stamped internet browsing history.
When hackers use these tactics to steal identities, the software is dubbed ‘malware’ or ‘spyware.’
The program first publicly surfaced in 2007, when the FBI used its program to target a juvenile who had allegedly placed hoax bomb threats at his high school. To infect the teen suspect’s computer with the CIPAV, the FBI concocted a fake article and disguised it as a report from the Associated Press.

FBI Broke Multiple Laws When Entrapping 15-Year-Old With Fake AP Article

In 2007, the FBI used a fake news story and website that used the names of the AP and The Seattle Times to catch a bomb threat suspect.
Last week, documents revealing the deception were publicized on Twitter by Christopher Soghoian, the principal technologist for the American Civil Liberties Union. They included a copy of the fake news story, headlined ‘Bomb threat at high school downplayed by local police department.’
Here’s a bit of background, from Fox News:
Police in suburban Lacey, near Olympia, sought the FBI’s help as repeated bomb threats prompted a week of evacuations and closures at Timberline High School in June 2007.
After police interviews of potential suspects came up empty, the agency obtained a warrant from a federal magistrate judge to send a ‘communication’ to a social media account associated with the bomb threats, with the idea of tricking the suspect into revealing his location, according to documents obtained by the San Francisco-based Electronic Frontier Foundation.

FBI Quietly Seeks Broader Hacking Powers

The FBI is seeking to expand its hacking and surveillance powers through ‘an apparently backdoor route,’ the Guardian reported Wednesday, a move that civil liberties groups say could infringe upon constitutional rights.
The Department of Justice (DOJ) has proposed (pdf) an amendment to Rule 41 of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure, having to do with warrants for remote access to electronic data. The rule changes, according to the DOJ, would make it easier for law enforcement ‘to investigate and prosecute…crimes involving Internet anonymizing technologies,’ such as Tor.
The federal Advisory Committee on Criminal Rules is scheduled to hear testimony on the proposal at a hearing next week.
The Guardian reports:
Under existing wording, warrants have to be highly focused on specific locations where suspected criminal activity is occurring and approved by judges located in that same district.
But under the proposed amendment, a judge can issue a warrant that would allow the FBI to hack into any computer, no matter where it is located. The change is designed specifically to help federal investigators carry out surveillance on computers that have been ‘anonymized’ – that is, their location has been hidden using tools such as Tor.

FBI agents cut internet access, pose as repairmen to perform warrantless search

LAS VEGAS, NV – To investigate a purported case of untaxed sports betting, federal agents turned off internet access to three luxury hotel suites then impersonated repair technicians to covertly get inside and collect evidence. The FBI contends that this ploy is sufficient ‘consent’ to perform warrantless searches in private residences.
* * * * *
In June 2014, the Federal Bureau of Investigation suspected that a wealthy Malaysian real estate developer and a few of his associates were betting on FIFA World Cup games. The bureau believed that 50-year-old Wei Seng ‘Paul’ Phua and his son Darren Phua had accessed ‘online sports books’ on their laptops as part of the unpermitted betting operation taking place at the Ceasar’s Palace Hotel and Casino.
The FBI was in need of an articulate reason to acquire a warrant on the Phuas. To obtain one, agents devised a plan to sneak into three hotel suites masquerading as helpful computer technicians, arriving to solve a problem with the internet service.
To create a disturbance, the scheme involved flickering the internet connection to the suspects’ villas over the course of two days, with the help of hotel computer contractors. Agents disguised as technicians responded to the villas with laptops to attempt to ‘fix’ the problem. The plan was derailed when a butler refused to allow them to enter.
‘I just want to make sure they can connect before I leave,’ one FBI agent said, his hidden camera revealed. ‘Can we just make sure they can connect, OK?’

15 Signs That We Live During A Time Of Rampant Government Paranoia

How does it feel to live under a government that is getting even more paranoid with each passing day? Yes, we live in a world that is becoming increasingly unstable, but that is no excuse for how ultra-paranoid the federal government has become. Today, every single one of us is viewed as a ‘potential threat’ by the government. As a result, the government feels the need to intercept our emails, record our phone calls and track our expenditures. But they aren’t just spying on individuals. The government keeps tabs on thousands of organizations all over the planet, it spies on our enemies and our allies, and it even spies on itself. The American people are told that the emerging Big Brother police state is for our safety, but the truth is that it isn’t there to protect us. It is there to protect them. Our government has become kind of like a crazy rich uncle that is constantly spying on everyone else in the family because he believes that they are ‘out to get him’. The following are 15 signs that we live during a time of rampant government paranoia…
#1 Former CBS News reporter Sharyl Attkisson says that the federal government was so concerned about her reporting on Benghazi, Fast and Furious and other Obama scandals that they hacked her computer, monitored every keystroke and even planted classified material in an apparent attempt to potentially frame her.
#2 The United States has become the nation of the ‘permanent emergency’. In fact, there has been at least one ‘state of emergency’ in effect in this countrysince 1979.
#3 In America today, almost everyone is considered to be a criminal. At this point, nearly one out of every three Americans has a file in the FBI’s master criminal database.

FBI Raids Federal Contractor’s Home – Has the Government Identified the ‘Second Leaker’?

Anyone who has been following Edward Snowden’s heroic whistleblowing, and the reporting of Glenn Greenwald on the classified documents that prove egregious violations of the United States Constitution by the NSA, will also be aware of speculation that a ‘second leaker’ had emerged earlier this year. It appears this person may have been identified by the FBI.
Yahoo News’ Michael Isikoff reports that:
The FBI has identified an employee of a federal contracting firm suspected of being the so-called ‘second leaker’ who turned over sensitive documents about the U. S. government’s terrorist watch list to a journalist closely associated with ex-NSA contractor Edward Snowden, according to law enforcement and intelligence sources who have been briefed on the case.
The FBI recently executed a search of the suspect’s home, and federal prosecutors in Northern Virginia have opened up a criminal investigation into the matter, the sources said.
Marc Raimondi, a spokesman for the Justice Department, declined to comment on the investigation into the watch-list leak, citing department rules involving pending cases.

Land of the Free – 1 in 3 Americans Are on File with the FBI in the U.S. Police State

The sickening transformation of these United States into a authoritarian police state with an incarceration rate that would make Joseph Stalin blush, has been a key theme of my writing since well before the launch of Liberty Blitzkrieg. One of the posts that shocked and disturbed readers the most was published a little over a year ago, and titled: American Police Make an Arrest Every 2 Seconds in 2012. In the event you never read it, I suggest taking a look before tackling the rest of this piece.
Fast forward to fall 2014, and the Wall Street Journal has a powerful article about how children in schools systems across the U. S. are being arrested or turned over to police custody for doing things that children have always done since the beginning of time. Things such as wearing too much perfume, sharing a classmates’ chicken nuggets, throwing an eraser or chewing gum.
As a result of our insane societal obsession with authority and disproportionate punishment, the WSJ reports that ‘nearly one out of every three American adults are on file in the FBI’s master criminal database.’
USA! USA!
From the Wall Street Journal:
A generation ago, schoolchildren caught fighting in the corridors, sassing a teacher or skipping class might have ended up in detention. Today, there’s a good chance they will end up in police custody.

FBI To America: “Let Us Spy On You”

“If you like your phone secretly spied on, you can keep it,” appears to be the message from the FBI, asBloomberg reports, FBI Director James Comey said yesterday that companies like Apple and Google should be required to build surveillance capabilities into their products to help law enforcement with their probes. Technology has become ‘the tool of choice’ for terrorists and other dangerous criminals, Comey fears(and so Americans should willingly give up their privacy?) “we are struggling to keep up with changing technology and maintain our ability to actually collect communications we are authorized to collect.” Concluding with his M. A. D. “it’s for your own good” propaganda, Comey warned “if the challenges of real time data interception threatened to leave us in the dark, encryption threatens to lead us all to a very dark place.”
As Ars Technica reports,
The expanding options for communicating over the Internet and the increasing adoption of encryption technologies could leave law enforcement agents ‘in the dark’ and unable to collect evidence against criminals, the Director of the FBI said in a speech on Thursday. In a post-Snowden plea for a policy more permissive of spying, FBI Director James B. Comey raised the specters of child predators, violent criminals, and crafty terrorists to argue that companies should build surveillance capabilities into the design of their products and allow lawful interception of communications. In his speech given at the Brookings Institute in Washington DC, Comey listed four cases where having access to a mobile phone or laptop proved crucial to an investigation and another case where such access was critical to exonerating wrongly accused teens.

YES, WE CAN! OPPOSE THE STATE…BUT BE CAREFUL ‘HOW’

You can’t fight City Hall. This is propaganda issued by City Hall – government and bureaucrats – to discourage those who would dissent, rebel or resist. ‘Nothing can be done to change the situation,’ they declare, ‘so nothing should be attempted.’
A corollary lie is that one person cannot successfully stand up against the system. Bradley/Chelsea Manning, Julian Assange and Edward Snowden prove the opposite. Each contributed a surprise plot twist in the history of totalitarianism being written by officials. Each also point to the price individuals can pay for speaking truth to power. They provide valuable lessons on how to dissent, rebel or resist while sustaining the least possible damage to your life. [Note: the following are examples of extreme dissent, not more muted protest such as walking down a street while carrying a sign.] Spotlighting Others Who Made a Difference
Other dissidents have grabbed recent headlines for counter-state actions in the past.
On the night of March 8, 1971, eight proto-Snowdens stole files from an FBI office in Media, Pennsylvania. They were anonymous members of the leftist anti-Vietnam war group, Citizens’ Commission to Investigate the FBI. After careful surveillance, the activist-burglars timed the break-in to coincide with the hyped boxing match between Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier; they figured security guards would be glued to their radios.
The resulting files documented the FBI’s COINTELPRO program with its explicit mission to “expose, disrupt, misdirect, or otherwise neutralize” groups considered to be “subversive.” Anti-Vietnam war and civil rights organizations were particular targets. The purloined information was disseminated to media sources, many of whom initially declined to publish. Enough information became public to create a furor, however, especially in concert with the Watergate scandal. The ensuing Church Committee, named after its chairman Senator Frank Church, investigated the FBI, CIA, and NSA for illegal gathering of information. COINTELPRO was disbanded. And Americans learned shocking secrets about government such as the FBI bugging of Martin Luther King and the CIA medical experiments on American citizens.
