Something Stinks In DC – The FBI and the Proud Boys – Lying Down With Criminals

I have written about this in the past. It is the FBI’s penchant for protecting top level criminals in exchange for those criminals giving it  information about others. It is an absurd program that was created by J. Edgar Hoover back in the 1960s when he got embarrassed by the Mafia. His first instinct was to get back at it by doing black bag jobs (illegal break-ins) and planting electronic listening devices. When it became apparent that he was going to get jammed in doing that because it was illegal he came up with the Top Echelon Informant program which protects some criminals while it chases after others.

Sadly it does a great injustice because the FBI decides who can commit crimes with impunity while prosecuting others. We know about the program in Boston because the Boston office had to identify two of these informants and a State Police interception disclosed another. The ones identified involved a really evil guy, Steve Flemmi, and a another much less evil, Whitey Bulger. The State Police intercepted an FBI agent telling his Top Echelon Informant who was suspected of murders and armed robberies, “my job is to keep you safe.”

The idea behind the program is to keep the criminal as a long time asset who will provide information over time. Of course, to provide information the asset has to continue to be involved in criminal activity. For that to happen the FBI has to protect him so that he can continue to do it.

I should have been suspicious something was a little awry when the Washington, D.C. police arrested Enrique Tarrio the leader of the Proud Boys on January 4, 2021. He was charged with a misdemeanor ” burning a Black Lives Matter banner.”  A couple of other charges were filed against him relating to two firearm magazines found in his possession. On June  5 the judge released Tarrio on his own recognizance Tuesday but ordered him to stay outside the nation’s capital until his next hearing in June.” 

He was not going to be in DC on the day of the insurrectionist attack on the nation’s capitol. Too bad he was not going to among the rioters. He was lucky because he would be charged with participating in the riot had he been there because as the Proud Boys leader he would have had to be out front. He was saved from being charged with participation in the riot unlike another Proud Boys such as leader Joseph Biggs or Andrew Bennett.

Was it luck? Or, was it a big FBI pretense to keep Enrique Tarrio out of the riot and on the street so it could continue to get information on the Proud Boys. It has all the marks of a pretense.

What then. We learn that Tarrio has been an informant in the past. He has worked with the FBI to get a good deal on a crime he committed. Which begs the big question.

If the FBI used a cover story to get Enrique Tarrio out of D.C. because it did not want him caught up in the riot then the FBI must have know a riot was being planned by the Proud Boys. It follows that if the FBI knew that then there should have been warnings and preparations much greater than we saw. Did the FBI deliberately let the January 6, 2021 attack take place so that it would not compromise its Top Echelon Informant Tarrio?

There is a great smell coming out of the FBI in DC. Was the FBI aiding and abetting Trump in his attempted overthrow of the government? It is important for Congress to know what the FBI knew about the riot, what is its relationship with Tarrio, and why it did not warn the appropriate authorities what it knew  was about to happen.

It’s an old story. Lie down with the dogs wake up with fleas. Lie down with criminals wake up as a criminal. Time to stop the FBI from lying down with criminals.

    A chapter from Gangster Planet

    The crash of a Cessna Citation business jet three weeks ago in mountainous terrain in Oregon raises questions—both immediate and going back twenty years—about the pilot who died when it nosedived into the ground at 400 miles per hour.

    The pilot, Richard Boehlke, is no stranger to trouble. In 2000 and 2001 he was in a criminal conspiracy—pump-and-dump stock fraud that bankrupted two small airlines and related businesses—with Wallace J. Hilliard, the owner of the flight school in Venice Florida attended by Mohamed Atta and Marwan Al-Shehhi, the 9/11 pilots who crashed airliners into the World Trade Center Towers.

    How can this be? All residents and staff vaccinated for Covid, then all test positive and 7 die, after zero prior cases
    Can it be true? I have put out requests for more information. I have never heard of a situation where EVERYONE in a large group catches an illness. Some people always avoid it. Could something in the vaccine be leading to positive tests? Most tests look for other parts of the virus, not the spike protein, which is coded by the vaccine’s mRNA. What could possibly be going on?

  4. From Meryl Nass MD in her blog yesterday

    “ These simple facts, along with the arguments I have made in the two linked blog posts, confirm that we are facing an infectious disease, and it is caused by a virus.
    4.  Hundreds of thousands of whole genome sequences (maps of every nucleotide in the virus’ RNA) have been uploaded by scientists in scores of countries to international databases, each with its own local mutations.  You would need to isolate and grow these viruses in order to sequence them.  Saying that all these sequences are false requires that thousands of scientists are lying, together, about the work they have done.  Since these scientists are from the US, China, Russia, and everywhere else, getting them all to tell the same lie would not be simple.
    5.  Did this virus originate in a lab?  Almost certainly. Was it spread deliberately?  I don’t know.  It could have been accidental.  It it was spread deliberately, who did it?  I don’t know that either.
    If you approach this question by asking who had the means, motive and opportunity to commit such a crime, we can at least begin the discussion.
    a.  Scientists in multiple countries, including the US and China, had the means to produce a virus like this.
    b.  Motive:  who is benefiting from the pandemic?  The $US dollar, Amazon, Elon, Facebook, Zoom, Twitter and the surveillance state, for a start.
    c.  Opportunity?  Since the world military games were held in Wuhan in October, military staff from dozens of countries had the opportunity.  Wuhan is also an international trading center. Maybe anyone visiting Wuhan last fall had an opportunity. ”

    The Model Emergency Health Powers Act Creates Its Own Emergency

    THIS IS NOT A HEALTHY PIECE OF LEGISLATION

    Meryl Nass, MD

    April 8, 2002 – One year ago, the Centers for Disease Control began negotiations for a model piece of legislation that would help states deal with a bioterrorism epidemic. Why focus on the states rather than the federal government? Because control of the practice of medicine is regulated at the state, not federal level. Some emergency responses are also handled at the state level, such as disasters in which the national guard (really a state militia) is called to assist. Other preparations for emergencies are made at the federal level.

    The CDC negotiations concluded rapidly after September 11, and Georgetown and Johns Hopkins University Professor of Law and Public Health Lawrence O. Gostin received a CDC contract to write and do public relations to help pass such a bill in every state. He says, “America is experiencing a tragedy of unprecedented proportions, but there is one silver lining: the political community is coming together with a clear determination to protect the civilian population from harm.”

    The silver lining for him was a $300,000 per year contract for up to three years for his services.

    By October 30 (was it a trick or a treat?) the first version of the Model Emergency Health Powers Act was unveiled, and presented to every governor and state legislature for review. Outside the halls of government, the bill bombed. A wide variety of pundits blasted its unprecedented incursions of our civil liberties. George Washington University Law Professor Jonathan Turley points out that “what the Act does not mention is that governors in most states already have all of the authority contained in the Act.”

    The bill allows a governor to declare an emergency on almost any infectious basis (emergencies are loosely defined in the bill) — and once declared, would then give the governor “unchecked and unfettered power,” according to Turley. He also notes, “What is most astonishing is the triggering of this absolute authority is left entirely to the discretion of each governor.”

    According to Jennifer King, Director of the Health and Human Services Task Force of the American Legislative Exchange Council, “Most unusual is the fact that there are no provisions for judicial or legislative review of the emergency declaration. In fact, the legislature is pointedly prohibited from reviewing the declaration for 60 days.”

    She also points out the bill’s “blatant disregard for personal privacy and individual liberties… All information gathered by medical professionals and pharmacists [must] be reported to public health authorities,” who may share it with “persons who have a legitimate need,” including law enforcement authorities. But ‘legitimate need’ is not defined.

    That is only the beginning. The bill further gives the authorities the right to seize or destroy property, food, medicines, firearms, etc. Citizens can be subjected to medical examinations and treatments against their will. The bill’s first draft made refusal of medical care a misdemeanor! In addition to compulsory acceptance of medications and vaccinations, citizens can be forcibly quarantined. According to Jennifer King, “public health authorities may determine who gets what drugs when, ‘without any additional legislative authorization.’”

    Dr. Jane Orient, Executive Director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, has pointed out what should be an obvious problem: “Public health officials are not omniscient.” For example, “They were silent as the WHO destroyed tens of millions of smallpox vaccine doses in the 1990s for want of $25,000 per year to buy electricity for the storage freezers.” More recently, CDC made a number of poor decisions when it came to handling the anthrax crisis.

    Dr. Orient sums up what the Act provides, compared to what would really be needed in an actual emergency: “In improving emergency preparedness, States should emphasize abilities to mitigate the situation, not powers to seize, commandeer, coerce, punish and disrupt. Better laboratories with surge capacity; stockpiles of vaccine, drugs, medical equipment and supplies; protective gear; decontamination equipment; and improved training of both officials and citizens would all be very helpful, but are not part of the Emergency Health Powers Act.”

    The Model Emergency Health Powers Act will be coming to your state for a vote sometime this year, if it has not already done so. Consider letting your representatives know what you think about this bill.

    FBI SNITCH SENTENCED TO LIFE 

    In the series of trials which followed the capture of the Ohio 7, the government relied heavily upon the testimony of an informant named Joseph Aceto (aka: Joseph Balino), a former member of Statewide Correctional Alliance for Reform (SCAR), a prisoners-rights organization founded in Portland, Maine during the early 1970s by Tom Manning and Ray Luc Levasseur.  Aceto offered considerable “evidence” concerning the original formation of the SMJJ, its evolution into UFF, and supposedly first-hand recollections of the defendants’ having described their bombing and bank-robbing exploits to him. Only later did it emerge conclusively that the government’s star witness had consistently lied under oath, passing off third-hand gossip and utter fabrications as conversations in which he himself had participated.   It also came out that Aceto had been diagnosed as psychotic and administered heavy doses of the tranquilizer Mellaril – to “increase his veracity” – prior to testimony.   To top things off, it was revealed that, in exchange for such testimony, the FBI had arranged for him to be released from prison where he was serving a life sentence for a brutal stabbing murder and placed on the federal witness protection program (a package with an $800 per month stipend).   All this information had been withheld from the defense – and consequently from the jury – at trial.
