A number of years have passed since you have heard from me. I have been living a quiet life in South America, while there I noticed a number of articles written about statements I had made. I hope to clear the air on some of these.  First and foremost President Bush did not order the assassination of Ross Perot. That is pure conjecture on the part of internet conspiracy theorists. He wanted Mr. Perot out of the race. That is true. But the order was to pressure him out, that would have been by intimidation. Believe me, there were archives of information that could have intimidated Mr. Perot sufficiently to leave the presidential race. The team that accepted the mission instead used the family tact. Which is intimidating the target by using family members? And so it was. That License to kill was not a Ross Perot Order.

Then there is the nonsense of the killing of Senator Tower. Pure B*** S***. Whoever dreamed up that line needs some serious help.

I believe those are the two items that need immediate corrections. There are others of course, but I will address those in the course of this series.

I believe to start I should introduce the players on the field. Once a mission was successfully completed, a call was made to our Mission Specialists (lets use a NASA term, sounds cooler than controller or handler. J.B. would have liked that).  The message was simple. “The playing field is clear”

So let’s set up the Playing Field in Series 1.

There is a broadcast that can set up the background very efficiently. Here is the abridged text of the broadcast.

The death of drug smug­gler and CIA oper­a­tive Barry Seal encap­su­lates much of the secret his­tory of Amer­i­can covert oper­a­tions in the sec­ond half of the 20th cen­tury. A pri­mary oper­a­tor in the Contra-related cocaine smug­gling of the 1980’s, Seal was gunned down in Feb­ru­ary of 1986 because he was threat­en­ing to “roll-over”—to squeal on his han­dlers. Had Seal done this, it might have led to the down­fall of the Reagan/Bush admin­is­tra­tion and the cur­tail­ment of the Contra-support oper­a­tion. Begin­ning with the account of Seal’s mur­der being broad­cast over the police radio in the Baton Rouge area, the pro­gram relates the extra­or­di­nary cir­cum­stances sur­round­ing the arrest and “pros­e­cu­tion” of the Colom­bian assas­sins who killed Seal. Even more extra­or­di­nary was the behav­ior of the FBI, which (con­trary to legal pro­ce­dure) con­fis­cated evi­dence that had been kept by Seal in the trunk of his Cadil­lac. That evi­dence con­sisted of tapes of Seal talk­ing with his han­dlers, who appar­ently included ele­ments of the CIA and then Vice-President George Bush. When one of Seal’s attor­neys prod­ded Seal for more infor­ma­tion about whom he was work­ing for, Seal handed him the phone and told him to call a num­ber that he gave to his coun­sel. When Unglesby (the lawyer) called the num­ber, he got Vice-President Bush’s office. When Seal attempted to pre­vail on Bush to inter­vene on his behalf with the IRS, Seal was mur­dered. Much of the pro­gram deals with Seal’s his­tory in the world of covert operations

1. The show begins with an account of a Louisiana State Police lieutenant’s hear­ing of Barry Seal’s death. This lieutenant—Robert Thomasson—had long tracked Seal, in a vain attempt to bring the CIA agent extra­or­di­naire to jus­tice. “The white unmarked police car car­ry­ing Louisiana State Police Lt. Robert Thom­mas­son, head of a spe­cial 21-man nar­cotics unit tasked solely with stop­ping Barry Seal, rolled slowly out of New Orleans in the hazy twi­light. . . After another long day Thom­mas­son was going home; his car inched through long day Thom­mas­son was going home; his car inched through traf­fic onto the 24-mile long Cause­way across Lake Pontchar­train which con­nects New Orleans with its leafy north­ern sub­urbs.” (Barry and the Boys; by Daniel Hop­sicker; Mad Cow Press [HC]; Copy­right 2001 by Daniel Hop­sicker; ISBN 0–9706-5911–0-5; p. 425.)

2. “Though Thom­mas­son was tired, fatigue has not dulled his vivid rec­ol­lec­tions of what hap­pened next. . . . A call crack­led over his police radio. ‘1018. Repeat: 1018. Imme­di­ately call head­quar­ters,’ ordered a grim dispatcher’s voice. A cop who had learned a grudg­ing respect for his elu­sive quarry, Thom­mas­son heard the news in dis­be­lief. . . ‘What’s white-and-brown-and-red and rolling around in Baton Rouge?’ asked the dis­patcher in the mirth­less tone cops use to dis­tance them­selves from bloody events. ‘Barry Seal. They just gut­ted him.’”

3. “As he heard the news, in the dis­tance he was still lis­ten­ing to his cruiser’s tires rolling over the causeway’s grat­ing. Thump . . .Thump. . . Thump. . . A $500,000 Medellin car­tel mur­der con­tract had hung over Seal’s head, upped to a cool $1 mil­lion if he was brought alive to Colom­bia. Still, the chill­ing bru­tal and clin­i­cal effi­ciency with which the ‘rene­gade’ agent had been dis­patched was breath-taking. . . espe­cially given that Seal him­self, a man with the most impec­ca­ble intel­li­gence sources, had not felt threat­ened. He cer­tainly hadn’t availed him­self of the Fed­eral Wit­ness Pro­tec­tion pro­gram when it was offered to him.”

4. There was appar­ently con­cern on the part of law offi­cers who had pur­sued Seal that they might be blamed for his death. “The dis­patcher asked, ‘Hey, bud, where you at?’ Thump. . . ‘Mid­dle of the cause­way,’ Thom­mas­son replied numbly. ‘Good,’ came the curt rejoin­der. ‘Get a bridge ticket on your way back into town, stamped with date and time.’ ‘See, how volatile the whole Seal thing was,’ says Thom­mas­son today, ‘is that they wanted me to have proof of exactly where I had been when Seal was killed, to remove any sus­pi­cion that we had played any role in it. It felt very much like ‘where were you when Kennedy was shot?’ It was that big—at least in Louisiana it was—especially since ten­sions had been run­ning so high since Barry was con­victed.’”

5. “In ret­ro­spect, Thom­mas­son says, the mur­der was a shock, but no sur­prise; Seal had seem­ingly fallen from favor with who­ever had been pro­tect­ing him. He’d been on a well-documented down­ward spi­ral for over a year, los­ing sta­tus, pos­ses­sions, and immu­nity from pros­e­cu­tion he had once taken for granted as a mem­ber of a ‘pro­tected’ class.”

6. “Most who knew Barry Seal were sad­dened at his exe­cu­tion, but not sur­prised. His sec­re­tary Dan­dra Seale (no rela­tion) was typ­i­cal. . . ‘The day Barry was killed, when he came back from lunch. . .’ she began, then stopped, her throat catch­ing. ‘See, he knew that day that they were killing him. Yes he did. Good lord. And he took it calmly, and con­tin­ued with what he’d been doing, which was try­ing to get the Play­boy Chan­nel into the Sal­va­tion Army, so that he and the rest of the men could watch it while he was locked up there at night.’”

7. Although the offi­cial story of Seal’s mur­der holds that he was exe­cuted by the Medellin car­tel, few who knew him believed it. His per­sonal sec­re­tary was among the skep­tics. “Not sur­pris­ingly, Dan­dra blames the ‘gov­ern­ment’ for Seal’s mur­der, and not the Medellin Car­tel ‘tar baby’ of the offi­cial ver­sion of events. . . ‘The CIA peo­ple here allowed it to hap­pen. He had a chart; he had dirt on any­body and every­body.’”

8. “Bob Thomas­son, now a fed­eral drug enforce­ment offi­cial teach­ing inter­dic­tion tech­niques to state and local police offi­cers, recalled what hap­pened when the state Police learned that Barry Seal had been mur­dered. . . ‘I imme­di­ately put out troops in Baton Rouge. Now, keep in mind, we are the State Police. The mur­der juris­dic­tion was in the city/parish. State police go in only when they’re called in, all right? Then I put the crime lab on standby. The city cops took one look at Seal’s bloody body, real­ized what they had, and requested the state police at the scene. So I imme­di­ately put the New Orleans office on standby,’ he con­tin­ued.”

9.” ‘At that time we had no idea yet that these guys—the shooters—were like rab­bits spread­ing out in a wild­fire. None what­so­ever. Thirty-five min­utes after the shoot­ing, I had dis­patch call the Baton Rouge office of the FBI, and the New Orleans office of the FBI, to give a noti­fi­ca­tion, just because it’s the right thing to do. . . You know, we’ve got a major smug­gler mur­dered, da-da-da-da-da.”

10. Here it is related that when one of Seal’s exe­cu­tion­ers were arrested at the air­port, the arrest­ing FBI agent acci­den­tally exposed the film the killer had taken of Seal’s mur­der. “We dis­cov­ered that one of the killers actu­ally took pic­tures of the murder-in-progress, but that the FBI agent who nabbed this guy at New Orleans Inter­na­tional Air­port as he was try­ing to flee the coun­try that night exposed the film, ren­der­ing it use­less as evi­dence.’ Thom­mas­son chooses his words care­fully. ‘What you get, when you call the FBI at night,’ he explains, ‘is a duty agent, okay?’ He’s just a kid, usu­ally, just out of the FBI Acad­emy, his stand­ing orders are, ‘Make No Deci­sions under Any Cir­cum­stances.””

11.” ‘What you don’t get at that time of night is a sea­soned agent or a SAC (Spe­cial Agent in Charge). You don’t get any­body impor­tant. So the appre­hen­sion at the air­port was made by a kid. It went like this: my head­quar­ters called the New Orleans FBI office. As soon as that phone call was received, the two ‘baby’ agents that had watch that night—they’re called ‘watch sups’—went out to cover the air­port.’”

12. ” ‘Now, never in a thou­sand years would this ever hap­pen again, but these two lucky guys park their car at the air­port, and head into the ter­mi­nal at the exact same time as this shooter, and they’ve got a phys­i­cal descrip­tion over their radio that exactly matches the guy they’re see­ing. That’s the only way that guy got caught. So . . . if you’re ask­ing me, did they delib­er­ately expose that film at the air­port? I got to say: look at who these two FBI guys were. Rook­ies. These are not the Men in Black.’”

13. After Hop­sicker braced Thom­mas­son about the involve­ment of the CIA in Seal’s mur­der, Thommasson’s demeanor dark­ened. ” ‘Why was there so much sus­pi­cion of the CIA?’ we asked. From his gri­mace we sur­mise he feels we’re push­ing. He pauses, straight­ens in his chair, and then fixes us with a state felt before, no doubt, by innu­mer­able South­ern mis­cre­ants. ‘Tell me why you’re doing this,’ Thom­mas­son demands. From the way he says ‘this,’ we know exactly what he means. . . And after we tell him he sits, think­ing hard. And then with­out another word of com­ment, while star­ing fixedly out a 12th story win­dow of a hotel room in Day­tona Beach, Florida at the blue-green Atlantic, turn­ing now a deeper blue as the sun slowly sets some­where a mil­lion miles away, he starts to talk. . . And the words at first come slowly, but soon enough are pour­ing out in tor­rents.”

14.” ‘This gets really black, okay, and it gets black for a lot of peo­ple. . . But I’ll give you a sequence of events: The FBI appears shows up, on site, at the shoot­ing, okay? And I go, hmmm. . . . It hap­pens. . . .It’s not too fuck­ing extra­or­di­nary, but still. . . And then the con­tents of the car, the trunk, were seized.’”

15. Appar­ently, the FBI vio­lated stan­dard oper­at­ing pro­ce­dure by con­fis­cat­ing evi­dence from the trunk of Seal’s car. ” ‘But they can’t just seize mate­r­ial evi­dence in a cap­i­tal crime!’ we protested. ‘Isn’t it ille­gal for any­one but the inves­ti­gat­ing offi­cers to remove evi­dence from a crime scene?’ ‘I told you,’ he con­tin­ued, ‘this gets really black. But some of the con­tents of the trunk, any­way, made it to my lab . . . our Louisiana State Police lab, which is def­i­nitely not a mom and pop shop—they’ve got 60–80 highly-trained employ­ees. . . Here’s the police pro­ce­dural: if it’s my case and I call the lab, I own the lab, okay? They take orders only from me. It would be the same pro­ce­dure if a sher­iff from Podunk called—they would then own the lab, the lab would work only for them. Under­stand?’”

16.” ‘Now, it would be beyond a breach of ethics, it would be crim­i­nal. . . . If, say, I called the lab and said, hey, I hear the city police sub­mit­ted a report on Joe Schmo, I’m com­ing by to pick it up. It’s called ‘tam­per­ing with evi­dence.’ We’re into crim­i­nal acts here. The evi­dence that went into that lab on Barry Seal went to a guy that won’t talk to you, so don’t ask me for his name or phone num­ber. This has caused a lot of stress in his life. He’s a long-time friend, and a top gun in foren­sics. And he gets the con­tents of Barry Seal’s brief­case, and some other con­tents of the car as lab exhibits. And he brings it into the lab. Our lab had worked the scene, and so had then brought the trunk’s con­tents back to the lab,’ he con­tin­ued.”

17. When Daniel inquired about the nature of the con­tents of the trunk of Seal’s Cadil­lac (con­fis­cated by the FBI), it became appar­ent that he was tread­ing on very sen­si­tive turf. Appar­ently, Seal had taped all his phone calls—including those made to his intel­li­gence handlers—and kept them with him at all times. Lieu­tenant Thom­mas­son received a pointed warn­ing about the sen­si­tiv­ity of the Seal case—his family’s dog was decap­i­tated and found float­ing in their back­yard pool. “We can’t help our­selves, and blurt out the ‘Big Ques­tion.’ ‘What was in the trunk of the Cadil­lac?’ ‘I’m not try­ing to be eva­sive. . . ’ Thom­mas­son answers somberly. ‘But, I want to make it very clear . . . I only have third-hand reports. Okay?’ ‘Seal’s trunk con­tained com­pelling and–again, from 3rd hand data—very very com­pelling doc­u­ments and tapes. Sev­eral brief­cases, boxes—wherever Seal’s Cadil­lac was, that was where Barry’s instant records were.’ From the way he stressed ‘3rd hand’ we knew he was speak­ing for the record. Later, we dis­cov­ered that this man’s fam­ily dog was decap­i­tated and left float­ing in their back­yard pool as a warn­ing. . . .Fully three months after Seal’s assas­si­na­tion. . .”

18.” ‘See, Barry taped his calls. Barry taped all of his calls, includ­ing all his calls to his con­trollers. I sus­pect that were you to have seen the con­tents of the trunk, it would cer­tainly val­i­date for whom he was employed, and what his mis­sion was.’ ‘Okay, who has heard those tapes that I could talk to?’ The ten­sion in the room rises. When he speaks his voice is soft, barely above a whis­per. ‘That’s liv­ing?’ he asks. ‘No one. I told you: this gets really black.’”

19. Hopsicker’s fas­ci­nat­ing nar­ra­tive gets into the sub­ject of whom had Barry Seal killed, and why:” . . . If Seal was right in being unafraid of Medellin car­tel retal­i­a­tion, and then who then was respon­si­ble for his mur­der? There is no bet­ter source for this crit­i­cal infor­ma­tion than the three Colom­bians con­victed of the killing, sen­tenced to life in prison with­out parole. We inter­viewed Richard Sharp­stein, a promi­nent Miami crim­i­nal defense attor­ney, and the lawyer for one of the three con­victed assas­sins, who casu­ally revealed the explo­sive truth about who ordered Barry Seal killed—and why.”

20. Seal’s killers were under the dis­tinct impres­sion that the US mil­i­tary offi­cer who directed their actions was Oliver North. ” ‘I rep­re­sented Miguel Velez for the Barry Seal homi­cide, which was one of the most incred­i­ble expe­ri­ences I have ever been through,’ Sharp­stein began. ‘It was an amaz­ing expe­ri­ence. Nobody wanted to think about what any of this meant back in 1986. The impli­ca­tions were just too big. And I’m only speak­ing with you now because some of this has leaked out. All three of the Colom­bians who went on trial always told us—their lawyers—that they were being directed, after they got into this coun­try, on what to do and where to go by an ‘anony­mous gringo,’ a United States Mil­i­tary offi­cer, who they quickly fig­ured out was Oliver North,’ Sharp­stein says.”

21.” ‘Say that again?’ we asked. We were sure we’d heard it right the first time; we just needed con­fir­ma­tion. . . ‘Once they ren­dezvoused together in the States,’ explained Sharp­stein, ‘they, the Colom­bians, were being directed, by phone, by a man who insisted on remain­ing anony­mous, but who did iden­tify him­self as being an offi­cer in the Amer­i­can mil­i­tary. . . They were put in touch with this offi­cer through Rafa (a Colom­bian smug­gler) who was the guy my client worked for. And they all believed that it was Oliver North.’”

22. The pro­gram broaches the sub­ject of the mar­tial law con­tin­gency plans drawn up by Oliver North when he worked for the White House. (For more about this sub­ject, see RFA#32—available from Spit­fire.) “What cor­rob­o­ra­tive indi­ca­tions are there to jus­tify the charge of mur­der against Lt. Col. Oliver North? North, numer­ous sources stated with­out prompt­ing, had been run­ning an assas­si­na­tion squad right out of his White House office. So the extra-judicial exe­cu­tion of Barry Seal wouldn’t have made him blink an eye. There are even alle­ga­tions that he had been tasked with draw­ing up plans to sus­pend the US Con­sti­tu­tion and declare mar­tial law, in the event the mas­sive drug smug­gling tak­ing place ever came to pub­lic light.” (Ibid.; pp. 438–439.)

23. “In Guts and Glory: The Rise and Fall of Oliver North, author Ben Bradlee, Jr., writes. . . ‘North’s work for FEMA from 1982 to the spring of 1984 was highly clas­si­fied, and some would say bizarre. He was involved in help­ing to draft a sweep­ing con­tin­gency plan to impose mar­tial law in the event of a nuclear war or less seri­ous national crises such as wide­spread inter­nal dis­sent or oppo­si­tion to an Amer­i­can mil­i­tary inva­sion abroad.’”

24. Mov­ing beyond the Medellin car­tel dis­in­for­ma­tion, the pro­gram delves into what actu­ally hap­pened. “But the pop­u­lar mythol­ogy of Seal’s assas­si­na­tion is—not just wrong—but active dis­in­for­ma­tion. When we began to exam­ine Seal’s assas­si­na­tion more closely, we saw then even basic facts, like how many killers there were, was stated wrong to slant the story. In the offi­cial ver­sion of events recounted in news­pa­pers, the killers were always described as a ‘three-man hit team of Colom­bian nation­als.’ Even a cur­sory read­ing of the head­lines revealed, to our amaze­ment, there weren’t, hadn’t been, three men involved . . . there had been eight. Three men may be a hit ‘team. Eight is a hit ‘squad.’ So this is clearly active dis­in­for­ma­tion; even news­pa­per reporters can count to ten . . . unaided.”

25. In addi­tion to the Colom­bian exe­cu­tion team, Jose Coutin was impli­cated in the mur­der. “Six men had been arrested at var­i­ous stages of attempt­ing to flee the scene. A sev­enth, Rafa Car­dona, who had dis­patched the team, was safely ensconced in Colom­bia . . . at least for a while. He was charged in absen­tia for plan­ning the hit, but was him­self mowed down, in a spray of auto­matic gun­fire inside his antique car deal­er­ship, in Colom­bia later that year. Then there was the ‘eighth man,’ Miami CIA ‘asset’ Jose Coutin, who had sup­plied the machine gun. More on him in a moment. . .”

26. “Richard Sharpstein’s client, Miguel Velez, aka ‘Cum­babamba,’ has been described as a ‘CIA hit man’ in the New York press, where he was wanted for mur­der. It was a total fluke that he was caught. He was done in by a deer. Ear­lier, Velez had been spot­ted, ques­tioned, and then released at the air­port, by those sharp dressers at the FBI. After escap­ing the fee­ble clutches of the FBI at the air­port, Velez had hired a cab to drive him from New Orleans to Miami.”

27. “In the mid­dle of the night, in Merid­ian Mis­sis­sippi, the cab hit a deer at a lonely gas sta­tion on the inter­state. While wait­ing for repairs, a high­way patrol­man hap­pened by, and noticed that the sur­gi­cal out­fit worn by the cab’s pas­sen­ger fit the descrip­tion released by Baton Rouge police of one of the trig­ger­men. Offi­cers imme­di­ately put Velez in hand­cuffs. The cab­bie, irate at los­ing such a big fare, pro­fessed to the cops that he couldn’t under­stand why the police were mak­ing such a fuss over a dead deer. . . .”

28. “Police then raided two ‘safe’ houses in Algiers, a seamy sub­urb of New Orleans, and nabbed Bernardo Vasquez and Louis Quintero-Cruz, the other two men later con­victed, as well as John Car­dona, brother of the man fin­gered at the trial, Rafa Car­dona Salazar. Elib­erto Sanchez was caught try­ing to flee at the New Orleans Inter­na­tional Air­port. Jose Rente­ria was nabbed the next day while wait­ing to board a plane in Miami. The ‘eighth man’ in the assas­si­na­tion is Jose Coutin, who had sup­plied the weapons for the hit. He is thus, by law, guilty of mur­der; or, at the very least, of con­spir­acy to mur­der. But being con­nected means never hav­ing to say you’re sorry. . .”

29. “Coutin was never even charged with a crime. He went on to tes­tify before the Kerry Com­mit­tee, say­ing, no doubt, any­thing his ‘bene­fac­tors’ wanted him to say. Coutin was the pro­pri­etor of the Broad­way Bou­tique, a Miami fash­ion shop with a unique inven­tory: ladies cloth­ing in the front, and mil­i­tary gear in the back. Accord­ing to Les­ley Cock­burn in ‘Out of Con­trol,’ he was a well-known CIA asset, FBI infor­mant, and Con­tra weapons sup­plier. Why Sanchez and Car­dona were sim­ply deported and never charged with mur­der has never, unsur­pris­ingly, been sat­is­fac­to­rily explained. . .”

30. “But what hap­pened to Jose Rente­ria is reveal­ing. Tes­ti­mony at the trial of the three accused of killing Seal revealed that Rente­ria had been the cut-out between Coutin, known to be linked to Oliver North, and the shoot­ers, to whom he deliv­ered the weapons from Coutin. . . So Jose Renteria’s case was sev­ered from the trial of the other three.”

31. “It was the strangest thing,’ says attor­ney Sharp­stein. ‘He was sev­ered on some odd the­ory that he wasn’t at the mur­der scene. What really hap­pened is he had indi­cated that he might, in exchange for a deal, be will­ing to talk. . . . Some­one on the gov­ern­ment side was clearly not very eager for that to hap­pen. Accord­ing to trial tes­ti­mony, it was Rente­ria who took pic­tures of the mur­der. When his cam­era was con­fis­cated by an FBI agent at the New Orleans air­port, it was opened and the film inside exposed. Rente­ria was sent to Miami to face (minor) pend­ing charges. His bosses must have felt that his was a job well-done.”

32. ” ‘They cut him a deal, they made a fast plea and he was in and out, serv­ing a bit of time and then being deported,’ states Sharp­stein. ‘The result was we never got to hear the story he was ready to sing at the trial.’ And Coutin? ‘Same thing,’ Sharp­stein said. ‘They made a deal with him; he tes­ti­fied at the trial, and then later before the Kerry hear­ings in Wash­ing­ton. I was the lawyer who brought up his CIA and Con­tra con­nec­tions in the trial, because I felt that there were lots of rea­sons why the CIA might want to mur­der Barry. . . .’”

33.” ‘And Coutin went crazy on the stand when I did. You’d have thought he’d been zapped with a ray gun.’ Had the Colom­bians dis­cussed motive with their lawyers? ‘They were just sol­diers,’ Sharp­stein stated. ‘They did what they were told. But in tes­ti­mony at the trial given by one of Seal’s attor­neys, Lewis Unglesby, we did finally hear about motive. . .’”

34. “Lewis Unglesby is today a promi­nent and very well-connected Louisiana lawyer. At the time his name was daily on the front page of the state’s news­pa­pers, defend­ing his long-time client and asso­ciate, Gov­er­nor Edwin Edwards. Unglesby had told us about a con­fronta­tion he had with Barry over the fact that Seal was keep­ing him in the dark about mat­ters Unglesby con­sid­ered cru­cial to defend­ing him. . . .”

35. One of the most dra­matic of the dis­clo­sures in Barry and the Boys con­cerns what Seal’s lawyer Lewis Unglesby revealed about who was con­trol­ling Barry Seal’s operations—then Vice-President George Bush! ” ‘Barry pushed the phone across the desk to me and said, ‘You want to know what’s going on? Here dial this num­ber. Tell ‘em you’re me,’ Unglesby related. ‘When I did what he requested,’ he con­tin­ued, ‘A female voice answered the phone, say­ing, ‘Vice Pres­i­dent Bush’s office, may I help you?’ ‘I said, ‘This is Barry Seal.’ She asked me to wait while she trans­ferred the call, which was imme­di­ately picked up by a man who iden­ti­fied him­self as Admi­ral some­body or other, who said to me, ‘Barry! Where you been?’”

36. Seal was try­ing to get George H.W. Bush to get the IRS off his back. He allegedly threat­ened to blow the whis­tle on the whole Con­tra scheme, includ­ing the com­plic­ity of the US gov­ern­ment and the Rea­gan admin­is­tra­tion in the mas­sive cocaine influx that bedev­iled the US in the 1980’s. ” ‘That’s when I told him that I wasn’t Barry Seal, I was his lawyer,’ said Unglesby. ‘Imme­di­ately he slammed down the phone.’ ‘So why was Barry Seal mur­dered?’ we asked Sharp­stein. ‘Unglesby said he had been with Seal when the IRS came and seized all his prop­erty,’ Sharp­stein related. ‘The IRS man said, ‘You owe us $30 mil­lion for the money you made in drug deal­ing.’ ‘Hey, I work for you,’ was Seal’s reply. ‘We work for the same peo­ple.’ ‘You don’t work for us,’ the IRS agent stated. ‘We’re the IRS.’”

37.” ‘Unglesby was with Seal when he retired to a back room,’ Sharp­stein. ‘He watched as Seal placed a call to George Bush. He heard Barry Seal tell Bush: ‘If you don’t get these IRS ass­holes off my back I’m going to blow the whis­tle on the Con­tra scheme.’ Sharp­stein spoke solemnly, aware of the grav­ity of his words. . . ‘That’s why he’s dead,’ is what Unglesby said.’”

38. “One week after the phone con­ver­sa­tion between Barry Seal and George Bush, Seal was sen­tenced to a half-way house. Two weeks later he was dead. ‘Barry Seal, you mean that agent that went ‘bad?’ Gor­don Novel had casu­ally inquired when we’d posed the ques­tion of his asso­ci­a­tions with Seal. An agent that ‘goes bad,’ as we under­stand intel­li­gence indus­try trade jar­gon, is one who con­tem­plates talk­ing. ‘Seal was gunned down, sup­pos­edly by those Colom­bians,’ says Sharp­stein. ‘But they were fed infor­ma­tion by the ass­holes in our gov­ern­ment who wanted him dead.’” (Ibid.; pp. 442–443.)

39. More about the alleged role of the CIA in Seal’s death: “The assas­si­na­tion of Barry Seal was very likely not even the first attempt on Seal’s life by North, we were told by CIA elec­tron­ics expert Red Hall, on the ground in Nicaragua with Seal on the San­din­ista drug sting. . . ‘The only thing I knew was the CIA had to do a lot with it (Barry’s mur­der.) The killers were being directed by Oliver North at the time. It was the same thing Oliver North pulled on us down in Nicaragua. Then, I didn’t know yet that Oliver North had it for Barry Seal, because he was work­ing with Oliver at that par­tic­u­lar point. We were under­cover, and we were still down there (Nicaragua), when Oliver North blew the whis­tle on us.’”

40. “Chip Tatum, another covert oper­a­tive who had known Seal and shared con­fi­dences with him, lis­tened with amuse­ment the first time we breath­lessly relayed what we’d dis­cov­ered: that Oliver North is guilty in the assas­si­na­tion of Barry Seal. . . ‘No shit, Sher­lock,’ he replied, laugh­ing. ‘It isn’t exactly the secret of the cen­tury, I can tell you.’”

41. The IRS wound up on Barry Seal’s case for rea­sons sim­i­lar to the ulti­mate appre­hen­sion of Al Capone: “Barry Seal had threat­ened George Bush over the IRS trou­ble he was hav­ing. Why couldn’t Bush have ‘taken care’ of the IRS? Per­haps he could have. But there were other Seal ‘prob­lems’ as well, like state police so dis­gusted they were threat­en­ing to go to the media with damn­ing evi­dence of offi­cial cor­rup­tion in Seal’s case, should the biggest drug smug­gler any of them had ever seen receive no ‘time’ at all. ‘Al Capone killed over five hun­dred peo­ple. What did he go to prison for?’ asked one for­mer state police offi­cial. We remem­bered. ‘Tax eva­sion?’”

42. “Exactly. Tax eva­sion. Get the pic­ture? I beat on desk­tops in IRS offices all across the United States to find some­body that would take the case, till I found a crim­i­nal inves­ti­ga­tor for the IRS named Earl Buck Holmes, will­ing to come down and set up a wardroom in my office.’ Some ‘wised-up’ local and state cops had fig­ured out that Barry Seal had been too valu­able to cer­tain peo­ple in the fed­eral gov­ern­ment of the United States of Amer­ica to ever go to prison for his crimes. . . .”

43. “Know­ing this, local law enforce­ment had done an end-around on them, and taken their case to the IRS, where they hatched a plan to at least strip Seal of some of his ill-gotten goods. Remark­ably, in the court pro­ceed­ings in nei­ther Miami nor Baton Rouge had Seal’s orga­ni­za­tional assets—like his fleet of planes—been con­fis­cated, although this is stan­dard oper­at­ing pro­ce­dure in drug cases. Why not? Because they were still being used . . .”

44. “Local and state cops, we found, to our amaze­ment, had tracked a ship­ment of cocaine to one of Seal’s ocean-going ves­sels, the Cap­tain Won­der­ful, just weeks before Seals’ mur­der. There they were met—and dis­suaded from boarding—by DEA and CIA agents. State and local cops in the South often appear to know the score. . . When we told one Louisiana law enforce­ment source what we had learned from Miami attor­ney Richard Sharp­stein, about how the hit team had been get­ting orders from Oliver North, he said sim­ply, ‘That doesn’t sur­prise me at all.’”

45. Seal was mur­dered because he was indeed get­ting ready to spill the beans about some of the unsa­vory events with which he had been involved and who was direct­ing these events: “Then we dis­cov­ered why Seal had been so uncon­cerned about being killed by the Medellin car­tel. . . ‘I asked Barry why he wasn’t wor­ried about the Colom­bians killing him,’ stated close asso­ciate, Mob pilot Rene Mar­tin. ‘He said he had told the Colom­bians he was going to pull a fast one, and tes­tify for Ochoa against the US gov­ern­ment.’ Two weeks before he died, Barry Seal had hired a pri­vate inves­ti­ga­tor in Miami, Steve Din­er­stein, to run FAA title searches on 15 dif­fer­ent air­planes he had used in his smug­gling Enter­prise. . .Seal was get­ting ready to talk about who had owned his smug­gling fleet fif­teen years ago.”

46. “Barry Seal was assas­si­nated because he was get­ting ready to talk. . . He had even con­tacted a Para­mount Stu­dios pro­duc­tion vice-president about mak­ing a movie. While the killers approached Barry Seal’s Cadil­lac in the Baton Rouge twi­light, Seal had been on his car phone with a CIA air­craft pro­cure­ment exec­u­tive in Ari­zona, Bill Lam­beth, who will him­self be mur­dered in Phoenix seven years later. Sud­denly cut off, and fear­ing the worst, Lam­beth fran­ti­cally dialed Barry’s home phone, where his wife Deb­bie answered. ‘I think something’s wrong with Barry,’ Lam­beth said omi­nously.”

47. “Deb­bie, unable to reach her hus­band, bun­dled her three small chil­dren into the car and fran­ti­cally headed for the Sal­va­tion Army half-way house where he had been sen­tenced to sleep for six months. On the way she stopped at a pay phone to make another attempt to reach her hus­band, and learned he was now ‘unreach­able.’ ‘He’s not going to the hos­pi­tal she remem­bers being told. ‘He’s dead. Don’t come here Deb­bie. Don’t.’”

48. “As she returned to her car, she could see through her tears, her three small children’s heads barely peek­ing over the car seats. And though Barry Seal is any­thing but blame­less, his three small chil­dren were. . . .They sym­bol­ize the mil­lions of lives ruined by a small but powerful group of public officials whose only pur­pose is to line their pockets with even more illicit monies at the cost of many lives.  ‘All I could think of was my poor lit­tle babies. . . .My poor babies,’ Deb­bie Seal told us, chok­ing back tears. ‘I didn’t know how I was going to tell them that their Daddy was dead.’

Comet Ison (Video)



TOP SECRET From Intel Sources not the author make this viral for all Humanity: Comet Ison What the Government will not tell you. We all have maybe a week maybe a month we have 2 large comets and 300 smaller rocks they are shooting them now with bombs, Russia also involved (Google Russia Rocket tests this week the cover story). Ison is made of platinum or gold they cannot break them up. If a semi-truck size hits yellow stone the volcano goes off. One of the 2 larger football field size is expected to hit London another to hit the Northern Hemisphere real soon. The one that hit Russia this year was the size of a refrigerator. For those Bible believers could this be in Revelation 8:11 (Wormwood) the two asteroids that destroy 1/3 of mankind?
I believe if we all came together and have faith like Jesus stated, we ourselves can move this out of harms way. Matthew 17:20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

18 U.S.C 4 The Federal Reporting Crime Act

Re: MDC Holdings, Inc. (MDC-NYSE)

To the Following:;;;;

I filed an Official SEC Whistleblower Complaint below that has been ignored.

I filed in U.S. District Court Kansas City, Kansas September 5, 2012

I am being Obstructed from proceeding with my Open and active Grand Jury

Case Number 95-Y-107 10th District to prosecute the Mortgage Back

Securities Fraudsters

Larry Mizel and Leonard Millman, Millman Organized Crime Syndicate.



Stew Webb Filed U.S. District Court Today

U.S. Magistrate Judge Gerald L. Rushfelt appears to be a felony violation

of 18 U.S.C. § 241

Stew Webb Official SEC Whistleblower Complaint Mortgage Backed Securities Fraud

Enclosed below names of entities used: Assett Investors et al:

I am not an attorney but I am writing to you to inform you that the order

by Magistrate Judge Gerald L. Rushfelt appears to be a felony violation of

18 U.S.C. § 241 in Magistrate Rushfelt’s knowing furtherance of the

conduct by state of Kansas officials in trafficking children to defraud

the federal government out of US Treasury Medicare and Health and Human

Services funds through false claims and to protect the order made by Hon.

Judge Carlos Murguia that was used to obstruct Bret Landrith’s US District Court

reciprocal disbarment proceeding and hearing.


Magistrate Rushfelt was the magistrate in Hon. Judge Carlos Murguia

Novation Cartel case where the two Assistant US Attorney died. First

Assitant US Attorney Thelma Quince Colbert who brought the sealed False

Claims act proceeding against Novation with testimony of a Novation

medical supply purchasing executive verifying the nationwide restraint of

trade in hospital supplies that Bret Landrith had alleged in the private civil action

Med. Supply Chain, Inc. v. Neoforma, Inc., 419 F. Supp. 2d 1316 (D. Kan.

2006) against Novation for violations of 15 U.S.C. §§ 1,2 (Sherman

Antitrust Act) and for predicate acts of 18 U.S.C. § 1962 (Racketeer

Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act ) that are also grave felonies.


Assistant US Attorney Shannon Ross, who supervised 70 US Justice

Department prosecutors and who signed the criminal subpoenas against

Novation was found dead in her home just before Bret Landrith’s expert testified in

the US Senate antitrust hearing on Novation’s conduct to restrain trade in

hospitals, and mere days after she signed the criminal subpoenas.


Hon. Judge Carlos Murguia’s sanctioned Bret Landrith for asserting there was a

private right of action under the USA PATRIOT Act (Public Law 107–56—OCT.

26, 2001) which had been used by the Novation cartel members to keep Bret Landrith’s

client out of the nationwide hospital supply market they monopolized. It

is beyond dispute that expressly creates several new private rights of

action by modifying existing statutes to create liability from private

actions for damages. Specifically the USA PATRIOT Act expressly recognizes

private liability related to Suspicious Activity Reports made with

malicious intent:


‘‘(3) MALICIOUS INTENT.—Notwithstanding any other provi- sion of this

subsection, voluntary disclosure made by an insured depository

institution, and any director, officer, employee, or agent of such

institution under this subsection concerning potentially unlawful activity

that is made with malicious intent, shall not be shielded from liability

from the person identified in the disclosure. “


Magistrate Rushfelt, knowing the misconduct of Hon. Judge Carlos Murguia

in ordering that Bret Landrith be sanctioned over $20, 000.00 for lawfully reporting

the commission of federal felonies under 15 U.S.C. §§ 1,2 and 18 U.S.C. §

1962 in Med. Supply Chain, Inc. v. Neoforma, Inc., 419 F. Supp. 2d 1316

(D. Kan. 2006) had a duty to report Hon. Judge Carlos Murguia. Which to everyone’s

knowledge he did not. See Abramson, Leslie W., The Judge’s Ethical Duty to

Report Misconduct By Other Judges and Lawyers and its Effect on Judicial

Independence. Hofstra Law Review, Vol. 25, No. 751, 1997.

Clearly I Stewart Webb went to court to obtain injunctive relief under federal law to

protect my Constitutional rights. I respectfully do not believe

Magistrate’s Rushfelt’s dismissal of my action before it is served is a

trial on the merits or anything other than a continuation of a conspiracy

among some state and federal officials to prevent me from having federal Constitutional

rights. I have laid out my reasons for this belief below.

Please review and give advice.

Thank You

The S&L scandal is the vehicle for telling the story about these leading American politicians and businessmen. But the relationships between these individuals and how they control and manipulate public and private institutions is the bigger story. Unless we know who these people are and understand how they operate, we can all look forward to more S&L-type debacles to come.

The S&L scandal was almost the perfect crime. The layers of protection and insulation between what the public discovered was going on at the savings and loans and what actually happened with the money were so many and so thick that the crimes and theft would never be completely figured out. And even if the truth were ultimately unearthed, there were additional layers between that revelation and the bringing of those responsible to the bar of justice and recovering the money.

The first and foremost layer of protection is the difficulty in tracking the money from the savings and loans to its ultimate destination. That is why almost no FBI agent, federal prosecutor, S&L regulator, congressional committee or journalist has been able to track the money. Yet where the money went is really the only thing that matters. The rest of the “facts” that, typically, got investigated, prosecuted and written about were mostly smoke and mirrors, set up to shield who really got the hundreds of billions of dollars that taxpayers must pay back and to hide what the money was used for.[1] —– [1]–A notable exception is the book Inside Job, by Stephen Pizzo, Mary Fricker and Paul Muolo, which nailed down the fact that the savings-and-loan debacle was caused primarily by fraud. —- The five years that went into this book represent my efforts to peel back all the layers of insulation and protection to get to the real culprits. I have organized this book with that process in mind, to help the reader understand a complicated and confusing subject.

In general, the bulk of the money lost in the S&L crisis that American citizens must now pay for went to the owners of the property and assets that the more notorious borrowers purchased with money from S&Ls run by equally infamous owners. This seems to be obvious, yet it somehow got lost in all the hype and hysteria. While Congress, the Justice Department and the press concentrated on the flamboyant borrowers and managers of the S&Ls, the big recipients of the money — the wealthy, powerful landowners and property owners — crept off quietly with their profits.

In the second half of this book, a number of examples will be detailed to show how this happened, and who got the money. For example, one later chapter deals with a $200 million, 21,000-acre land transaction in Florida in which much of the borrowed S&L money went to a paper company owned by the Du Pont empire, one of the oldest, richest, most powerful bastions of wealth in this country.

We know this because many of the lending documents were pursued by a lone, shrewd, tenacious federal regulator named Kenneth Cureton. However, the unraveling of this transaction was a rare and exceptional event. But even it could not be called a complete victory. The Department of Justice’s International Division, the government body through which subpoenas to offshore banks must pass, inexplicably became a brick wall for Cureton’s efforts to obtain records on the Isle of Jersey in the English Channel, where a big chunk of the money went — possibly to buy weapons for Iraq.

Since so many of the crucial documents in this scandal are not available, we are left with the second-best avenue of investigation: finding out who the original property owners were and everything we can about them, and then doing the same thing for the S&L proprietors and borrowers. The bulk of this book consists of that enterprise.

The evidence uncovered is clear, convincing, and compelling: Members and associates of the Mafia and the United States Central Intelligence Agency were key participants in our nation’s savings-and-loan debacle, and some of the richest, most powerful people in the country did business with these participants and profited from the S&L crisis.

That members of the Mafia and the CIA, two organizations that operate in secrecy and whose members take sacred oaths — one supposedly dedicated to national security, the other simply to their organizations’ security — may have been working together is not unprecedented in this country. But that fact doesn’t make their cooperation any less outrageous.

It is well known that members of the Mafia and the CIA conspired to try to assassinate Fidel Castro. There are other, less substantiated, although credible, allegations regarding the two groups’ involvement together in drug smuggling and money laundering in Southeast Asia, Australia and the Caribbean.[2] —- [2]–The Politics of Heroin in Southeast Asia, by Alfred W. McCoy (New York: Harper and Row, 1972); The Crimes of Patriots, by Jonathan Kwimy (New York: Norton, 1987); and In Banks We Trust, by Penny Lernoux (Penguin Books, 1986). —- There are also some curious, ominous connections between members of these groups and JFK-assassination figures Lee Harvey Oswald and Jack Ruby.


Drawing a straight, direct line from the CIA operatives discussed in this book to the top officials of the CIA and on to the President is extremely difficult because of the way the CIA works. Most of the characters in this book are not the card-carrying bureaucrats and bean counters at CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia. They are what are called CIA “assets,” who can be someone who turns over an occasional piece of information to the CIA, without even knowing it is for the CIA, all the way up to someone who is continually working for the CIA in covert operations.

A similar and, likewise, important cog in CIA operations is what is known as a cutout. A cutout is a front man or middle man set up to protect the identities of the primary participants. Like an asset, a cutout may or may not know for whom he is working and the actual purpose of his work. (The Mafia also makes use of such cutouts, except they call them “mustaches” or “beards.”)

The CIA uses assets and cutouts to maintain one of its prime directives: plausible deniability, or, in other words, “Don’t get caught embarrassing the President.” (The CIA is the intelligence-gathering and covert-action arm of the President. Perhaps that is the definition journalists should always refer to, rather than just throwing the general term “CIA” around as if it were some sort of independently run mythical loose cannon.) So . . . if an asset or cutout is caught breaking the law, the CIA can deny that its operative was working for it at that particular time.

This leads to one difference between the Mafia and the CIA, particularly in this story. Once it is established that members and associates of the Mafia are involved in a failed savings and loan, that is usually enough to establish, prima facie, the involvement of the Mafia. Members and associates of the Mafia don’t do such things without the knowledge, permission and the sharing of the spoils, with their superiors.

The destruction of the savings and loan industry in Texas, and in some other parts of the country, worked basically like an organized-crime bustout or burnout. This is a mob scam in which a failing company is taken over, built up on credit, then drained of all its assets and purposely put into bankruptcy, leaving the creditors holding the bag.

Marc Rich Leonard Millman and Marvin Davis

What sets this tale apart, what makes it truly extraordinary, is the extent and degree of the apparent exploitation and deceit. Even in this town, where huge sums are routinely paid as the price of political access, the figures are astonishing.”

–Senator John McCain, chairman,

Senate Committee on Indian Affairs

While media cameras were focused on Scooter Libby, who obtained access to executive decision-making through the front door of the White House, attention to the back door process had been lagging. An examination of Abramoff’s political background and connections to the current administration reveals a closely kept secret about how political campaign funds are siphoned from the very clientele the U.S. Department was designed to protect. Deeper investigation will also reveal historical ties that extend back to Theodore Roosevelt’s so-called “progressive” reforms at the turn of the 20th century that put the damper on populism. [1]

The Revolving Door Between Government and Industry

CSPAN viewers had a fascinating peek at Interior’s intrigue on November 2 when two former officials of George W. Bush’s Interior Department, sitting side by side, facing the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs, related completely contradictory interpretations of Jack Abramoff’s touted access to Secretary Gale Norton and her former Deputy Secretary, J. Stephen Griles. Michael Rossetti, the Department’s former counsel, had accused Griles of aggressive meddling in land-into-trust applications requested by Abramoff’s Indian gaming clients, while Abramoff’s emails indicated a belief he had Griles in his pocket. In contrast, Griles, his face growing increasingly red, spluttered that he had done nothing to give Abramoff such an idea.

Exemplifying what a recent New York Times editorial called an “ever-whirring carousel for business lobbyists and government appointees,” Rosetti left the department to work for Akin, Gump, the Dallas-based lobbying and law firm, [2] and Griles set up a lobbying firm of his own. [3] Griles worked six years under James Watt in the Reagan and Bush administrations, dealing primarily with surface mining issues. As Judy Bonds, director of the Whitesville, West Virginia-based environmental group phrased his performance, “Griles allowed the coal industry to rape the people and the environment of Appalachia.” [4] He then re-entered the private sector in 1989 to work in the mining industry and as a lobbyist for a firm which represented the National Mining Association and Dominion Resources, among others. [5]

The Reservation’s Resources—Fair Game?

Though Chairman McCain indicated there was “no evidence to suggest that Secretary Norton knew of, much less sanctioned, Mr. Abramoff or anyone else using her name in seeking fees and donations from Native Americans,” yet, because of Norton’s close ties to Italia Federici, a former aide, to whose political action committee Abramoff is alleged to have directed $250,000 from his Indian clients, can it be only a matter of time before another Cabinet official is dragged into the spotlight?

There is a familiar pattern to Norton’s background which should cause concern. Like Condoleezza Rice, Norton acquired her undergraduate degree from the University of Denver, graduating in 1975. She followed up with a law degree therein 1978 and then spent four more years in Denver, working for Mountain States Legal Foundation, an organization set up by James Watt with funds from the Coors family and Colorado’s mining interests.[6] Again following Condi’s path, Norton completed a one-year fellowship at the Hoover Institution in Stanford, California before beginning work for the federal government in the Reagan Administration, first at Agriculture and then Interior until 1987. 

When she ran for the Senate in 1996, after two terms as Colorado’s state attorney general, Federici came onboard as Norton’s chief fundraiser, joining forces with the same types of aggressive fundraisers previously described in this writer’s articles on Karl Rove and Tom DeLay. 

After the Senate defeat, Norton worked as a lobbyist for NL Industries (formerly known as National Lead), which faced numerous lawsuits over toxic-waste sites and lead paint products that it had sold.  Today’s largest shareholders of NL Industries are Harold C. Simmons of Dallas and his brother through various corporate holdings like Valhi, Tremont, Titanium Metals, Keystone Consolidated Industries, and Kronos Worldwide. [7]

However, according to research of professor of chemistry Alanah Fitch:

NL dates back historically to William Collins Whitney, Bernard Baruch (son of Daniel Guggenheim’s physician), and attempts by Theodore Roosevelt’s cronies to take control of the industry. [8] Baruch, liked Whitney, worked in the administrations of Democrats (Wilson, FDR and Truman). What Fitch fails to mention in her environmental case study is the Yale and Skull and Bones connections of many of those involved, as well as the overriding presence of the families behind the Chicago Tribune–the Medill-McCormick-Patterson-Blair axis, previously mentioned at this website. [9]

In 1987 Norton became a trustee of the Coors-funded Independence Institute, and in 1998 (four years after Adolph Coors Foundation spun off Castle Rock Foundation) Norton founded the Council of Republicans for Environmental Advocacy (CREA). With help from chief aide Griles’ nemesis, Italia Federici, CREA was designed and set up by Republican fundraiser Grover Norquist. Coors money is makes up one of the largest components of the Heritage Foundation. [10]

During 1999 and 2000 Norton worked in private practice at Brownstein, Hyatt, Farber & Strickland, “known in Denver as a predominantly Democratic law firm,” according to an ABC news profile.  Actually, the Brownstein firm, founded by Norman Brownstein, Vice President of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), has used the Democratic Party to gain access to the White House for pro-Zionist issues. Brownstein has been attorney and friend of the late Denver oil magnate Marvin Davis, who was a one-time partner with Marc Rich in 20th Century Fox holdings. 

Brownstein’s connection to the Bush family through the President’s brother, Neil Mallon Bush, was well documented by author Pete Brewton, who called Brownstein “one of the key figures in the middle of the big Silverado borrowers from Denver.” It was the billion-dollar failure of Silverado Savings that tainted the so-called career of Neil, who served on the board from 1985 to 1988. While Brownstein was acting as Marvin Davis’ attorney, Davis’ daughter—Nancy Davis Zarif—was involved in a “small cookie business called Cookie Express” with Neil’s wife (now ex-wife) Sharon Bush as her partner. The two women made the rounds of Denver’s charitable social scene together. 

In Pete Brewton’s groundbreaking expose The Mafia, CIA and George Bush, Brownstein is named as “one of the most influential political fund-raisers in Colorado.”  What is most revealing about Brownstein and his Denver law firm (which included attorney Gale Norton) is the knowledge acquired as a result of Brownstein’s relationships with other attorneys like Calvin Eisenberg and Burton Wallace Kanter, two Chicago tax attorneys with secretive connections to CIA attorney and paymaster Paul Helliwell, who incorporated drug airline Air America and helped to launder its cash profits into Florida real estate. Kanter used his contacts with Helliwell to launder the proceeds into Chicago real estate. [11]

Whether the Senate committee will follow this money trail or not once the Senators come face to face with Italia Federici still remains to be seen.

Don’t hold your breath.

The greening of Italia Federici

To buy influence at the White House, GOP operative Jack Abramoff gave $500,000 in tribal loot to a Gale Norton pal who heads an “environmental” nonprofit.

By Michael Scherer


Topics:John McCain, R-Ariz.

Italia Federici is a minor Republican player in Washington, the sort of dime-a-dozen functionary who can build a career trading favors in backrooms and producing political campaigns for moneyed interests. Her specialty is the environment. She leads a conservative front group called the Council of Republicans for Environmental Advocacy, or CREA, a tiny outfit, originally founded by Interior Secretary Gale Norton, that argues it is healthy for forests to clear-cut trees, good for the air to weaken air-quality controls, and “environmentally responsible” to drill for oil in the Alaskan wilderness.

For the past five years, Federici has limited her public activities to supporting President Bush’s environmental plans. She claims that traditional environmentalists, groups like the Sierra Club and Democrats like Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., are dishonest and deceptive. But that is just the public face of Federici. In private, she has played a very different role in Washington, one that has now put her in the middle of one of the largest political ethics scandals in a decade.

On Thursday, she appeared before the Senate Indian Affairs Committee to explain under oath her relationship with Jack Abramoff, the disgraced Republican lobbyist whose exploits have already led to a handful of criminal indictments. For critics of Republican politics, the Abramoff investigations are a gift that keeps on giving. They reveal a world of ethical violations, illegal money transfers, perjury and graft that flowed between some of the biggest names in Republican politics. Already, Abramoff has been charged with fraud; a top White House official, David Safavian, has been charged with perjury; and another former White House official, Timothy Flanigan, has withdrawn from a Senate confirmation process.

Abramoff’s dealings have thrown ethical clouds over a number of Republican heavyweights, including Rep. Tom DeLay, R-Texas., evangelical activist Ralph Reed, and anti-tax crusader Grover Norquist. And the investigation is far from over.

Under the direction of Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., the committee has uncovered evidence that suggests Federici entered into an unspoken deal with Abramoff, who is accused of stealing millions of dollars from his Native American clients. He funneled nearly $500,000 in donations from these clients to her environmental organization. In exchange, Federici became his advocate in the inner sanctum of the Bush administration, offering him access to at least two of her close friends, Norton and Deputy Secretary J. Steven Griles. “Ms. Federici would help get inside information about and possibly influence tribal issues within the Interior,” explained Sen. McCain, at the start of the hearing.

For her part, Federici flatly denied all allegations that she had done anything untoward. “We provided excellent environmental advocacy consistent with our mission,” she said of her work with CREA, which is registered as a nonprofit. “I get a lot of unsolicited e-mail, and I am helpful to all of my friends.”

Sitting before the Senate panel, Federici had the bearing of a quiet, sympathetic elementary school teacher. She wore her blond hair loose over her shoulders, and spoke in soft tones. At one point she portrayed herself as an honest subordinate who had found herself working with unethical friends. “Jack was close to 50, a man and a high-dollar donor,” she said of his blunt e-mails to her. “I did not feel comfortable correcting his vernacular.” But she gave no ground to her inquisitors. She said, instead, that she believed the committee’s staff had engaged in a smear campaign against her. She called McCain’s investigation a “witch hunt,” adding that she believed the senator might hold a grudge because she had opposed a bipartisan bill on air quality that McCain had sponsored.

McCain seemed to take pleasure in the suggestion that he was the one bending ethical rules. He focused instead on the evidence he had compiled. He described multiple e-mails in which Federici responded to Abramoff’s requests for help lobbying Interior officials. In April of 2003, for example, Abramoff asked her to find out about a procedural change proposed by the department that had upset his clients. “Hi Jack: I will definitely see what I can find out,” she wrote back, before immediately changing the topic. “I hate to bug you, but is there any news about a possible contribution…?”

“Any objective observer would see that there is a connection between contributions to your organization and the work that you would be doing on behalf of Mr. Abramoff,” McCain said.

“I attached a second unrelated thought about an environmental project,” Federici protested.

“Since your answers are so bizarre, I won’t continue,” said McCain a few minutes later. “I will let others make the judgment.”

The e-mails released by the committee on Thursday certainly presented a damning case. At minimum, it appears Abramoff believed he was buying access to the Interior Department through Federici. He claimed to colleagues that Federici had “juice” at the agency. He claimed that CREA functioned as “Norton’s main group outside the department.” He offered Federici skybox seats at Redskins games and paid the bill for her meals and cocktail parties at his downtown restaurant, Signatures.

At the same time, Federici appeared to be catering to Abramoff’s every wish. She arranged meetings, requested photo opportunities, delivered memos and newspaper articles to Interior officials. She even organized Georgetown dinner parties, under the cover of CREA, so Abramoff’s clients could meet with Norton and Griles. “Thanks for all you do for my clients, the cause and me personally,” Abramoff wrote her in a 2002 e-mail.

“When my friends reach out to me and ask me to help them with things, I never turn around and say why don’t you just do it yourself,” Federici said, adding that she paid for her own cellphone to facilitate this process. “I believed at the time that the reason Jack was giving us money is because he was a very generous Republican contributor,” she said at another point in the hearing.

“That is unbelievable,” said Sen. Byron Dorgan, D-N.D., who is co-chairman of the committee.

There was far less disagreement about what Federici had done with the tribal money she collected from Abramoff’s clients. CREA spent it on initiatives that had nothing to do with the Native American tribes, but much to do with furthering President Bush’s agenda. In April 2002, for example, CREA ran a $40,000 full-page ad in the Washington Post praising the environmental merits of the president’s plan to drill in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

“We are also going to do something mean to Senator John Kerry,” Federici wrote Abramoff, a few days before the ad ran. She then described a video CREA had packaged that showed Sen. Kerry leaving an Earth Day celebration and stepping into a gas-guzzling sports utility vehicle. She sent the video to at least two television programs on the Fox News Network, “The O’Reilly Factor” and “Hannity and Colmes.” “I am letting EVERYONE know that you are the only reason we have the funding to do this,” she gushed to Abramoff in the same e-mail.

At the same time, e-mails show that Abramoff and Federici plotted to use environmental causes to help Abramoff’s gambling clients. In December 2002, Abramoff proposed to Federici that she encourage the Interior Department to “say that they are not satisfied with the Environmental Impact Report” of a proposed casino in Michigan that would compete with one of Abramoff’s clients. “This is a direct assault on our guys,” Abramoff wrote to Federici. Eight minutes later, she wrote back to say she would contact Griles. “I will call him asap,” she said. The casino was eventually approved, after a protracted delay.

Sen. Dorgan compared Federici’s story to a fairy tale. “You know what bothers me?” Dorgan asked at the end of the hearing. “It’s pretty clear that this is one of the most disgusting tales of greed and avarice, and perhaps fraud and stealing. It’s unbelievable what we have uncovered here. It’s almost sickening to see what we have uncovered. And you come to our table and say, ‘Oh, gosh, this is just about friendships.’

“Somehow none of this adds up,” he continued. “This committee, in my judgment, has had people testify, and, in my judgment, some of the testimony was fraudulent. We need to find out who, because there are consequences to that.”

Dorgan may well have his way. The Senate Finance Committee is beginning its own investigation into the use of nonprofits like CREA by lobbyists like Abramoff. The Justice Department is in the midst of a wide-ranging investigation of Abramoff’s lobbying operation. Sen. McCain has suggested the Internal Revenue Service should mount its own investigation. And Dorgan said he will ask for another hearing of the Indian Affairs Committee.

No date has yet been set. But it is clear that Federici, a backroom player in big-money politics, will not have the last word.

Solution Brownstein shepherded all real estate aspects of KSL’s 2006 acquisition of ClubCorp, and has provided ongoing representation to them ever since. This in-depth knowledge of the client, their objectives and real estate holdings, enabled the firm to be well ahead of the curve to assist ClubCorp with this complex refinancing and restructuring.

The resulting transaction totaled $725 million in financing from Citi through a unique combination of term and revolving loans and high yield notes. Brownstein handled all real estate issues of the transaction including the transfer of Barton Creek and Homestead Resorts to KSL Resort, with a new $94 million Deutsche Bank term loan on Barton Creek.

Overall, the client secured outstanding financing on excellent terms. The proceeds from the issuance of the notes, together with borrowings under the new credit facilities, were used by ClubCorp to retire the debt due to mature in 2012.

Additionally, Brownstein continues to provide ClubCorp support in a variety of matters as needed.

Dividend Capital Group


Dividend Capital Total Realty Trust Inc., a Denver-based diversified REIT, sought to buy 25 supermarket-anchored retail properties in the Greater Boston area from Tedeschi Realty Corp., a Rockland, Mass.-based real estate development and property management firm. With nearly two million square feet of space and a total purchase price of $377 million, the retail portfolio would be the largest ever sold in Massachusetts.
Dividend Capital needed a law firm partner with the depth, experience and breadth to handle a deal of this magnitude. They needed real estate counsel in negotiating the purchase agreement and the financing for acquisition. They needed a legal team robust enough to complete due diligence on the transaction in relatively short order. They also needed counsel with the appropriate expertise to handle any environmental questions that might arise during the investigation of the large, diverse group of properties.
The deal was set to take place in the summer and fall of 2007. Issues with the financial markets at that time added a level of intensity to the process. The legal partner would have to work thoroughly, but very quickly as well.


Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck tackled the transaction with a team-based approach. Bringing together Shareholders from a variety of disciplines, the firm assembled a team of 10 attorneys and 5 paralegals from the Real Estate Finance, Land Use and Tax groups. The team worked together tirelessly to accomplish the acquisition within the scheduled timeframe. They completed due diligence, negotiation of the purchase agreement and negotiation of the financing in less than four months. Brownstein’s land use and environmental attorneys worked through a variety of issues to the satisfaction of both Dividend Capital and its lender, allowing the deal to continue as planned.
Ultimately, Brownstein attorneys helped arrange an initial purchase of 22 properties for $329 million, and then a secondary purchase of the three remaining properties for $48 million. The completion of the deal allowed Dividend Capital to employ a significant amount of its equity commitments in two large transactions, rather than going through a tedious and time-consuming process of 25 separate transactions. With the REIT buoyed by the new portfolio of shopping centers, Dividend Capital Total Realty Trust is poised to provide strong returns for its investors in the coming years.
Of course, Brownstein didn’t just close the deal and walk away. In keeping with its strategic partner model of client service, the firm is involved with various financing, leasing and property management issues on an ongoing basis.

The Brownstein Advantage

6. Norman Brownstein & Steven Farber (4)

Co-founders, Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck From their 17th Street law firm, these boyhood friends continue to quietly influence city, state, and national politics. Brownstein handles the national business and is such a D.C. heavyweight that the late Ted Kennedy once dubbed him the “101st senator.” If a Colorado U.S. senator or the governor needs something in Washington, there are times when they turn to Brownstein. Farber tends the parochial backyard. Locally, Farber, too, has a share of the proposed Gaylord hotel business and is a hired gun in the restructuring of Pinnacol Assurance. The firm’s managing partner Bruce James has become more prominent, but some political players are of the opinion that James’ first high-profile foray into local politics—advising Mayor Hancock on how to handle Denver Players—didn’t go so well. Noteworthy, too, is that one of Brownstein’s sons just pleaded guilty to insider trading.

7. Larry Mizel (15)

Chairman/CEO, MDC Holdings Inc. This reclusive Republican oversees the Denver-based, multi-million-dollar home-building company, which enables him to be a mighty rainmaker. In the 2010 election cycle, he raised a total of at least $1 million for local and national elections for U.S. Senator Mike Lee, New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez, Colorado State Treasurer Walker Stapleton, and U.S. Congressman Cory Gardner. Mizel made a power move among power moves when he threw his typically Republican money and weight behind Democratic gubernatorial candidate John Hickenlooper. In return, he’s not afraid to ask for—make that demand—assistance, nor is he afraid to throw elbows when it comes to raising money, like for events such as 9/11 Remembers. A board member of the influential American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), he was no small force behind the Pro-Israel Resolution passed in the Colorado Legislature last March, further evidence that he can make his causes state issues.

8. Phil Anschutz (12)

Media Mogul He’d be No. 1 on this list every year if he cared enough about such things, but he’s a bit distracted with his diverse, privately held Denver-based empire of holdings in oil and gas, railroads, media, and entertainment (AEG). All of which makes him the richest person in Colorado—according to Forbes, he’s worth $7 billion. The assertively private billionaire conservative doesn’t say much (never publicly), but when he does, everyone, especially Republicans, listens. Former GOP gubernatorial candidate Scott McInnis got as far as he did largely because McInnis was who Republicans thought Anschutz wanted. Only a GOP moron runs for political office in this region without wondering what Phil will think, though smart Democrats respect him, too. When U.S. Senator Michael Bennet comes back to town, he stops to see his old Regal Entertainment boss. Even President Obama gives careful consideration to Anschutz’s desires, as POTUS recently fast-tracked the permitting process for an Anschutz power line that will cross five states, including Colorado, into California, with energy supplied by a $6 billion wind-energy operation Anschutz plans to build on one of his own ranches in Wyoming.,1

4. Norman Brownstein/Steven Farber

Cofounders, Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck

While the sun is rising in Finegan’s sphere, that doesn’t mean the looming moon of Brownstein and Farber has fallen. Pals since childhood, Brownstein and Farber have been kingmakers in Denver for years, using their considerable charisma and contacts to elevate Denver’s profile, while advocating for their clients’ agendas and making their firm profitable. Brownstein handles the D.C. business, while Farber is the big man on Denver’s campus. Brownstein’s ability to galvanize funding for virtually anything, from DIA to Stapleton, is so legendary on Capitol Hill that Ted Kennedy once called him “the 101st senator.” Championing pro-Israel causes while making fund-raising magic, Brownstein has ingratiated the firm with, it seems, every power broker on the Hill. He needs an annex just to accommodate his freeze-and-squeeze pictures with the senior-most D.C. political establishment. As the cochair for the Host Committee of the DNC, Farber found the funding for the Obama-Fest. He’s a former chairman and ranking member of Colorado Concern, which is a collective of private-sector business leaders that arguably has more to say about business in Denver than does the city’s own chamber of commerce (think the Carlyle Group of Denver). Farber has become more selective about when and how he exercises his muscle since a kidney transplant in 2004 (the donor was his son, Gregg). Healthy (and with a George Hamilton tan), he has emerged as one of the country’s leading organ donor activists and recently cowrote a book about it that has Hollywood interest.

15. Larry Mizel

Chairman/CEO, MDC Holdings Inc.

Whenever there’s been a hush-hush meeting about the future of the GOP or the business interests of the Front Range, chances are Mizel’s agenda was in the room, even if he wasn’t. He’s run the multibillion-dollar MDC for almost 30 years, developing homes all over the Front Range. He also cofounded the Simon Wiesenthal Center, one of the world’s foremost human-rights organizations. Like Benson and Anschutz, Mizel has major sway over statewide strategy as Republicans try to get their mojo back in 2010. Yet, make no mistake, he’s a businessman and his power transcends party: At the 2009 Allied Jewish Federation Men’s Event in November, Mizel gave a warm introduction to Senator Bennet that could have been read as something of an endorsement. What’s telling about that, says a muckety-muck who was in the audience, is that while Bennet has Jewish ancestry, he was not raised in the faith; what’s more, Bennet, of course, is a Dem.

The Big One

The Big One

Holder’s “El Cid” U.S.  Attorney  Ron  Machen Jr.,

Why There Will Be No Grand Jury on Fast and Furious, Benghazi,  the AP and Fox Wire Taps,  or  Judicial Corruption


By  Stew Webb  – Federal


At the center of today’s headlines, the point man on the ground for the government is United States Attorney Ronald C. Machen Jr. USAttorney Machen obtained the AP and Fox News subpoenas and timed the leak of the AP surveillance to be the same day as the preplanned leak of IRS disclosures about Tea Party processing delays. The real story is bigger and USA Machen holds the career futures of both Attorney General Eric Holder and Chief Supreme Court Justice Roberts in his capable hands.

Like my Veterans’ Today readership, I have been paying special attention to the news leading up to Memorial Day, that time when we remember our fallen comrades and can’t help but measure our own lives since leaving the service of our nation USMC. All of us wonder from time to time, but especially on the national holiday dedicated to the ones that sacrificed all, if we have upheld the values, the constitution, and the America they died defending.

In the weeks leading up to Memorial Day, articles in this publication and others have revealed the top brass in all branches of the military having a Major General Smedley Butler-esque crisis over the lawfulness of their ordered prosecution of America’s armed conflicts and the mass human suffering it caused. MSNBC’s  Rachael Maddow reported last week that other leader, that civilian General, Attorney General Eric Holder admitted for the first time that the U.S. killed 4 Americans with drone strikes despite having only targeted one. The following day the Commander in Chief, President Obama directed that operations of the drones will be mostly be returned to military control and never used against Americans on American soil.

As Americans, we can be proud of a military that has always remained loyal to the constitution and the rule of law, and a national leadership that reflects openly upon its efforts and failures in measuring up to the legacy passed on to us. However, in this article, I am going to be calling your attention to something more related to the roots of Memorial Day.  Decoration Day, as it used to be known, when our grand parents and great grand parents carried on the tradition of decorating the graves of America’s civil war dead.  A great way to memorialize why we never can tolerate such a conflict again. Because there were so, so many fallen.

Check your history books sometime. Do an exercise with me. Look at the biggest casualty count on one of the worst days in your war, then turn to your father’s or grandfather’s war and pick a day out of one of the worst campaigns he ever mentioned. You know the one. Some European or Pacific town you never heard of, and which he never spoke about around the kids or grandkids. Then go look that battle up. And, when you think you have some serious numbers go read about Sharpsburg or Antietam.

How do we now as citizens, protect our civil liberties, a representative government, and fair and unbiased courts? The only deterrents to citizens taking up arms against each other, so that we will uphold our duty to our fallen comrades, our fathers and grandfathers and ensure we will never see another civil war? Well if you have been following the wars for the last twenty years or so, you can see civil society and the institutions that permit citizens of a country to peaceably settle their differences are very fragile. Remember the war in Kosovo?  Europe woke up one day in the late 1990’s seeing ethnic cleansing and concentration camps on the evening news as if everyone had forgotten the lessons of World War II. But Kosovo didn’t just “happen”, the media those same citizens relied upon for everything from information decisions in voting to international aid and peacekeeping intervention was infiltrated and propagandized . Even media “incitement to genocide” was used by the forces controlling the newspapers, radio, and television as a strategy to plunge the region into civil war.

Who has the day job of protecting America from this kind of domestic threat? And, you know it is out there. You can’t be living in America today without hearing these voices. Inciting Americans to “stand up against” their government or its institutions and laws. Even around here at Veterans’ Today, we have taken to labeling the establishment media which has forgotten what journalism means and has so obviously become an instrument of special interest groups and even foreign powers as the “ lame stream media.” And, when the so called “alternative press” becomes dominated by a few externally funded loud mouths that clearly are following the same talking points of disinformation in furtherance of an agenda opposed to American interests for a criminal purpose or to compromise American forces abroad in time of war, who polices against them for sedition and treason?

Thankfully for us, that civilian general, Attorney General Eric Holder still has a champion swordsman that will saddle up and ride out to defend the castle. No matter how depraved and treasonous the elites inside have become, and no matter how powerful the enemies surrounding the capitol have grown. He is United States Attorney for the District Columbia,  Ronald C. Machen, Jr. You can all him “The Man”.  No doubt what Attorney General Eric Holder does every day that Holder is not behind bars.

US Attorney Ron Machen heads the biggest prosecutors’ office in the nation and has over 300 Assistant US Attorneys reporting to him. Machen does it all from prosecuting narco-terrorists to corrupt government officials. But, from the beginning, Machen has been the go to guy for investigating government leaks. Look closely at the center of every controversy facing the Obama administration over the last couple of months, and you will find US Attorney Ron Machen.

Publicly, Attorney General Eric Holder may voice some second thoughts about authorizing the wire tapping of journalists, like he did after reading the Washington Post article on the targeting of Fox News reporter James Rosen, or he might spend the next two days  with media bureau chiefs retooling the US Department of Justice policy manual about getting search warrants on journalists.  Russia Today is reporting now that the House of Representatives Committee on the Judiciary is considering filing perjury charges against Attorney General Eric Holder for stating to them on May 16 that he was not involved in the decision to investigate 20 AP reporters. But, that is the same committee that made Holder the first Attorney General found to be under Contempt of Congress. And, the surveillance of the AP reporters included their conversations with members of Congress and their staff in the cloak room , another active marketplace for special interests and foreign powers. Did anyone say cloak and dagger yet? But, General Holder does not have to pay too much attention to questions from the House Judiciary Committee because US Attorney Ron Machen is the guy Congress has to go to in order to convene a grand jury over whether to indict Attorney General Eric Holder.

Congress has already been stopped by this obstacle to prosecuting General Holder. In a June 29 letter from Senator Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa) about whether to pursue indictments against Attorney General Eric Holder over his role in the “Fast and Furious” scandal, Grassley states that under the statute, Machen’s “duty… shall be to bring the matter before a grand jury for its action.”

US Attorney Ron Machen is like a battlefield commander walking around with both sets of launch keys in his pocket. Like I said before, every day that Attorney General Eric Holder is not behind bars, its because US Attorney Ron Machen is a loyal soldier. Attorney General Eric Holder gives the orders and US Attorney Ron Machen follows them.

Some sharp bloggers have caught on to the significance of US Attorney Ron Machen disclosing to the Associated Press in a letter dated May 10 that the Department obtained telephone toll records for more than 20 separate telephone lines assigned to the AP and its journalists” earlier this year were subject to subpoena. Why did such a loyal soldier for General Holder give this notice to the subjects of the investigation? Jason Kissner, an associate professor of criminology at California State University, Fresno writing at the American Thinker speculates that US Attorney Ron Machen made the disclosure after a May 7 AP article on the CIA preventing a Bin-Laden death anniversary terrorist bombing in Yemen in order to protect the Obama administration from embarrassment. Kissner suggests that the administration itself likely made the leak through the CIA and that the AP became subject to broad subpoenas once it had utilized the leaked information. However, even Professor Kissner admits he cannot account for the reason behind US Attorney Ron Machen disclosing the AP subpoenas on the same day that the IRS officials preplanned their disclosure of that other scandal shaking the Obama administration and the foundations of our voluntary tax code.

Everyone will agree that it is highly unlikely US Attorney Ron Machen was part of a plan to hurt the administration. Machen who is also a Harvard graduate, as Fox News cries was one of the first to have donated to Obama’s Senate campaign. President Obama certainly has days where he questions the loyalty of General Holder, who has a history under earlier administrations. But, US Attorney Ron Machen will likely be the last champion standing for the president. However, one must ask: What are General Holder and US Attorney Ron Machen up too?

My job with Veterans Today is starting to remind me of Henry Fonda playing Lt. Colonel Kiley in the movie Battle of the Bulge. I am supposed to be covering the government corruption beat and I keep getting bits and pieces, like Henry Fonda flying through the clouds and snapping a few pictures in the woods of the Ardennes. It’s not till I get back to the CQ and develop the film that I can detect what looks like big armored divisions hidden in the trees, massing for a battle.

The AP and FOX News wire tapping scandals are attracting a lot of attention, but these were instances where the subjects of the investigations were notified of the subpoenas. General Holder and US Attorney Ron Machen were likely following the law, and certainly were if they had probable cause that treason and sedition were being committed. Even had they failed to give notice. Today, the lame stream press is concerning itself over US Attorney Ron Machen having to go to the Chief Judge of the District of Columbia District Court, Hon. Royce C. Lamberth to overrule two other judges that refused to grant the subpoenas on Fox News reporter James Rosen. However General Holder and US Attorney Ron Machen are in the same District of Columbia courthouse defending Supreme Court Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr in LANDRITH et al v. JOHN G. ROBERTS 1:12-cv-01916-ABJ regarding a secret policy associated with the USA PATRIOT Act of targeting private civil litigants with warrantless wiretaps and other forms of surveillance. I broke the story Chief Justice Roberts Fails To Dismiss Lawsuit and provided Veteran’s Today readers an update Chief Justice Roberts Gets Personal Sanctions Motion.


Samuel Lipari and his attorney Bret Landrith were among the first persons targeted by the original US APTRIOT Act warrantless wiretapping when they were trying to break the Novation Cartel monopoly that controls manufacturers’ suppliers, and distributors’ access for selling hospital supplies to thousands of American hospitals and health systems.


After Attorney General Ashcroft was pushed out by the George W. Bush’s illegal presidential administration to make way for Alberto Gonzales, Bush’s former Texas Attorney General, the Assistant US Attorney for the Northern District of Texas who had been prosecuting Novation LLC for false claims against the government was found dead in her Fort Worth swimming pool by her daughter.  A few weeks later, the Assistant US Attorney supervising over 70 federal criminal prosecutors was found dead in her home after she had signed the criminal subpoenas for Novation LLC operation of the hospital supply cartel. The story was broken in the main stream FWWeekly article Hijacking at the Hospital by Pablo Lastra. Novation was being defended by Vinson and Elkins, a law firm formed by two of President Lyndon Johnsons’ cabinet members and the only private sector employer of Alberto Gonzales.


A succession of federal judges threw out both the Lipari and government cases against Novation in decisions contradicting the applicable controlling law. Senator Charles Grassley spearheaded a change in the False Claims Act, the law that is most frequently used to combat Medicare fraud so that it would expressly include the conduct of hospital group purchasing organizations like the Novation Cartel and Chris Evans, the actor that re-popularized the Marvel comic book hero Captain America played a third attorney found dead in the Novation cartel litigation in the fictional movie Puncture.

Understandably, Samuel Lipari and Bret Landrith have a debt of honor to be settled with Chief Justice Roberts over the current judicial ethics reporting system.

On May 23, the court docketed a motion by the plaintiffs to include Attorney General Eric Holder as a defendant for his personal role in implementing the policy, alleged to have repeatedly violated the constitutional rights of the plaintiffs and other litigants before federal courts:


Landrith Lipari v. Chief Justice Roberts Motion for Leave to Amend ( Proposed 2nd Amended Complaint )

Landrith and Lipari Motion For Leave To Amend


Originally, the case was merely part of the academic debate on whether ethics complaints against judges should be publicized or not. The original defendant Supreme Court Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr. appears to have partially agreed with the plaintiffs. During the time period addressed by the lawsuit, Chief Justice Roberts changed the policy of the courts and directed that the complaints be publicized, just that the judge’s name be omitted. The plaintiffs argue that the judge’s name is required so that litigants can accurately appraise whether the judge is deviating from clearly established laws for an improper purpose as part of a bias or corrupt influence, and thereby be better able to protect their rights.

US Attorney Ron Machen appeared from the beginning to be zealously defending Chief Justice Roberts. However, later it became clear that Machen was even utilizing extrajudicial means that violate attorney ethics rules and furthered the conduct complained of in the original lawsuit complaint as violating the constitution and creating the liability of Chief Justice Roberts to injunctive relief against his role as Chief Administrator of the Courts.

Like the puzzling disclosure US Attorney Ron Machen made to chief counsel Laura Malone for the AP leaking the fact that the 20 AP reporters had been under surveillance for a substantial part of this year, there is a mystery as to why the plaintiffs Landrith and Lipari were forced by Machen to seek to amended their complaint and to include Attorney General Eric Holder as a defendant for what under the facts established in the complaint show was a policy of Supreme Court Chief Justice Roberts predating the Obama administration. US Attorney Ron Machen may be setting up Attorney General Eric Holder or Chief Justice Roberts, or both.

At law, you are responsible for the actions of those who work for you and are under your direction or control. When attorneys defending Chief Justice Roberts break the law, it is the same as if Chief Justice Roberts broke the law. Similarly, under the ethics rules applicable to attorneys and judges, when a person commits a felony, they are a felon. There is no requirement a court convict them of the crime before they resign or are impeached. Thankfully in America being a judge and being a gangster are two mutually exclusive career paths.

When wars turn ugly, we remember those watershed shifts in the mentality of our strategists. Machen’s prosecution of Chief Justice Roberts’ defense reminds me of the Vietnam Era distorted philosophy that you have to burn the village to save the village. But that’s failure talking. US Attorney Ron Machen does not fail.

Trust me, whenever the fog breaks, I will be there trying to cover this final battle of the Obama administration to defend our nation’s institutions and constitution. For those of you with some free time around the campfire this summer, get out your pencil and paper and brush up on your iambic pentameter, heroic couplets, and quatrains. Someone needs to write an epic poem about General Holder’s great swordsman and champion, United States Attorney Ronald C. Machen, Jr., who rode outside the walls to defend the District of Columbia when no one else would.

Chief Justice Roberts Gets Personal Sanctions Motion

Chief Justice Roberts Gets Personal Sanctions Motion

Breaking News May 1, 2013


By  Stew Webb  – Federal


On Monday, Chief Justice John Roberts and the staff of the United States Attorney for the District of Columbia were served with a Motion for Sanctions under Rule 11 in the injunctive relief case LANDRITH et al v. JOHN G. ROBERTS 1:12-cv-01916-ABJ

The Chief Justice has 21 days to withdraw his misrepresentations to the court of Judge Amy Berman Jackson.


The Veteran’s Today readership is so vast that many fellow Missouri citizens have contacted me, mad about the fact that only Veterans Today and this Article is exposing the real reason behind the loss of almost all of our Show Me State’s auto plants.


During Sam Lipari’s quest to enter the national hospital supply market he repeatedly informed the courts that America was in danger of thirty more auto plant closings if the hospital supply monopoly was not broken and healthcare costs continued to be too expensive for American employers to compete with foreign manufacturers in the domestic US market.


At the time Lipari filed the Medical Supply Chain, Inc. antitrust lawsuit in 2005, Ford knew it was going to be forced to close 14 plants in North America by 2012 and lay off 30,000 American workers, but federal judges could not be bothered with the felony Sherman Antitrust Act violations Lipari had evidence were breaking the bank of private and government healthcare plans. Back in 2006, General Motors was closing its Oklahoma City plant and even US Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals judges from Oklahoma could not be troubled to understand the significance of General Motors having to close another eight plants and lay off 30,000 workers of its own because it was being crippled by healthcare costs and the rising expenses of its retirees.


The auto plant closures rippled through the national economy. In the neighboring state of Kansas which had only one General Motors plant, Governor Kathleen Sebelius who is now President Obama’s Secretary of Health and Human Services warned: “There are an estimated 60,000 Kansas workers whose livelihoods depend on the survival of the American car companies..” No state was immune from the loss of Blue Collar middle class jobs and the loss of the tax revenue this wealth brought in. The State of Kansas would later have to cut the budget of the state judge colleagues of the federal judges refusing to hear the evidence in the Medical Supply Chain antitrust litigation.


I have agreed to provide our readers updates on the case against Chief Justice John Roberts to force federal courts to publicize judicial ethics complaints. Landrith and Lipari argue that this change will prevent the repeated violations of the constitutional rights of parties in federal litigation. And, it looks like it is shaping up into a real fight to reclaim the soul of justice in our once great nation.


On Monday the plaintiffs were forced to serve a Motion for Sanctions against Chief Justice John Roberts for repeated and intentional misrepresentations to the Washington, D.C. court.



While this seems unbelievable and outrageous that the man in charge for enforcing the code of ethics and judicial canons in America’s courts would make fraudulent misrepresentations to the court he is on trial in, readers must remember that Chief Justice John Roberts’ legal defense is being controlled by Attorney General Eric Holder, the first Attorney General in the history of the United States to be under a Contempt order by Congress. Of course that was also for misrepresenting the facts and preventing access to records that are believed to contradict his testimony.


The Congress is suing Attorney General Eric Holder to get those same records in a case that like Bret Landrith and Sam Lipari’s lawsuit is also being heard by Judge Amy Berman Jackson.


Landrith and Lipari have answered Chief Justice John Roberts’ Motion to Dismiss the Amended Complaint and the Answer is available online. Fair warning though, don’t try to read it unless you have your blood pressure medicine within reach.

It seems that civilian public servants in the District of Columbia have some casual attitudes toward their solemn responsibilities. Attorneys cannot ethically misrepresent the material facts or the relevant case law to a tribunal. But, I guess if you are defending the Chief Justice of the United States to keep the process for reporting judicial ethics violations from being improved, the Department of Justice must feel its okay to break some rules.


The First Amended Complaint reveals for the first time known to this author, a secret part of the USA PATRIOT Act that was never published, but enforced as an official policy by government employees in the Department of Justice and Judicial Branch. How people could enforce a law that is secret and not published where citizens can learn of it and change their conduct is a new one to me.


Reading between the lines, it is clear that the policy being enforced was the censoring of political and business speech. So not putting this part of the USA PATRIOT Act into a published statute probably kept a lot of the people enforcing the censoring of US Senate campaign sites and blocking hospital supply sites to restrain trade from knowing just how bad they were violating the constitution.
