Whistleblower Alayne Fleischmann on How JPMorgan Chase Helped Wreck the Economy

As a follow-up to the Rolling Stone article, here’s a recent interview with the “$9 Billion Witness”

http://democracynow.org – A year ago this month the U.S. Department of Justice announced that the banking giant JPMorgan Chase would avoid criminal charges by agreeing to pay $13 billion to settle claims that it had routinely overstated the quality of mortgages it was selling to investors. But how did the bank avoid prosecution for committing fraud that helped cause the 2008 financial crisis? Today we speak to JPMorgan Chase whistleblower Alayne Fleischmann in her first televised interview discussing how she witnessed “massive criminal securities fraud” in the bank’s mortgage operations. She is profiled in Matt Taibbi’s new Rolling Stone investigation, “The $9 Billion Witness: Meet the woman JPMorgan Chase paid one of the largest fines in American history to keep from talking.”

Brainwash Update: How America Recruited, Protected, and Continue to Pay Nazis to this Day

Abby Martin takes a look at two recent investigative reports from the Associated Press and New York Times, uncovering the recruitment of Nazi spies for the CIA and the US’ policy of giving social security payments to former Nazi leadership.

Canadian Terror Wave: a Modern-Day Gladio

If you haven’t seen yesterday’s video roundup of Ottawa Shooting videos from the truther community, you can find them here. -LW


 As warned, after multiple staged incidents used to ratchet up fear and paranoia in the build-up to US and its allies’ military intervention in Syria and Iraq, at least two live attacks have now been carried out in Canada – precisely as they were predicted. 

The first attack involved a deadly hit-and-run that left one Canadian soldier dead. AP would report in its article, “Terrorist ideology blamed in Canada car attack,” that: 

A young convert to Islam who killed a Canadian soldier in a hit-and-run had been on the radar of federal investigators, who feared he had jihadist ambitions and seized his passport when he tried to travel to Turkey, authorities said Tuesday.

The second, most recent attack, involved a shooting in Ottawa injuring several and killing another Canadian soldier on parliament Hill. RT in its article, “Ottawa gunman ‘identified’ as recent Muslim convert, high-risk traveler,” would report that: 

While the name of the Ottawa gunman is yet to be announced, a number of officials told numerous media that the shooter is believed to be Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, a recent Muslim convert, allegedly designated as a high-risk traveler. 

Michael Zehaf-Bibeau was born in Quebec as Michael Joseph Hall north of Montreal, two US officials told Reuters, claiming that American law enforcement agencies have been advised that the attacker recently converted to Islam.  

AP sources also identified the man to be Zehaf-Bibeau. A Twitter account associated with Islamic State militants tweeted a photo they identified as the Ottawa shooter. The Globe and Mail reports that the shooter was designated a “high-risk traveler” by the Canadian authorities with his passport seized.

Clearly, both suspects were under the watch of not only Canadian authorities, but also US investigators, before the attacks. 

Canada’s Attacks Were Predictable – Western Security Agencies are Prime Suspects

It was warned last month after security agencies staged scares in both the US and Australia, that suspects under investigation, being walked through planned terrorist attacks by Western security agencies as part of “sting operations” would inevitably be switched to live terrorist attacks.

In mid-September A Rochester man, Mufid A. Elfgeeh, was accused by the FBI of attempting to provide material support to ISIS (undercover FBI agents), attempting to kill US soldiers, and possession of firearms and silencers (provided to him by the FBI). The FBI’s own official press release stated (emphasis added):

According to court records, Elfgeeh attempted to provide material support to ISIS in the form of personnel, namely three individuals, two of whom were cooperating with the FBI. Elfgeeh attempted to assist all three individuals in traveling to Syria to join and fight on behalf of ISIS. Elfgeeh also plotted to shoot and kill members of the United States military who had returned from Iraq. As part of the plan to kill soldiers, Elfgeeh purchased two handguns equipped with firearm silencers and ammunition from a confidential source. The handguns were made inoperable by the FBI before the confidential source gave them to Elfgeeh.

It was warned that only an inoperable firearm stood between Elfgeeh’s arrest and his successful execution of deadly plans hatched by him and his undercover FBI handlers. This script, written by the FBI to entrap Elfgeeh, would be followed almost to the letter in live attacks subsequently carried out in Canada resulting in the death of two Canadian soldiers. Conveniently, both suspects are now dead and little chance remains of ascertaining the truth of who they were in contact with and how they carried out their deadly attacks. 

With both suspects having been on both US and Canadian watch lists – it is very likely undercover agents were involved in either one or both cases. While many possibilities exist, Western security agencies should be among the first suspects considered as potential collaborators. 

A Modern-Day Operation Gladio – Inducing Fear, Obedience, and Control

Before Elfgeeh’s entrapment and later live attacks in Canada, US policymakers and pundits had begun in earnest setting the rhetorical stage for eventual staged attacks. With serial beheadings failing to raise Western public support necessary for an expedient intervention in Syria, more insidious provocations appeared to be in the works. Setting the stage, a CBS/Associated Press story titled, “Former Deputy CIA Director: ‘I Would Not Be Surprised’ If ISIS Member Shows Up To US Mall Tomorrow With AK-47,” would claim immediately after the initial James Foley ISIS execution video that:

“The short-term concern is the Americans that have gone to fight with ISIS and the west Europeans that have gone to fight with ISIS could be trained and directed by ISIS to come to the United States to conduct small-scale attacks,” Morell stated. “If an ISIS member showed up at a mall in the United States tomorrow with an AK-47 and killed a number of Americans, I would not be surprised.”

Morell warned that over the long-term the extremist group could be planning for a 9/11-style attack that killed thousands of Americans.

The FBI has a long list of foiled terror plots of its own creation. More disturbingly are the plots they conceived but “accidentally” allowed to go “live.” One might recall the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. FBI agents, according to the New York Times, were indeed overseeing the bombers that detonated a device killing six and wounding many more at the World Trade Center.

In their article, “Tapes Depict Proposal to Thwart Bomb Used in Trade Center Blast,” NYT reported:

Law-enforcement officials were told that terrorists were building a bomb that was eventually used to blow up the World Trade Center, and they planned to thwart the plotters by secretly substituting harmless powder for the explosives, an informer said after the blast. 

The informer was to have helped the plotters build the bomb and supply the fake powder, but the plan was called off by an F.B.I. supervisor who had other ideas about how the informer, Emad A. Salem, should be used, the informer said. 

The account, which is given in the transcript of hundreds of hours of tape recordings Mr. Salem secretly made of his talks with law-enforcement agents, portrays the authorities as in a far better position than previously known to foil the Feb. 26 bombing of New York City’s tallest towers. The explosion left six people dead, more than 1,000 injured and damages in excess of half a billion dollars.

Considering the 1993 bombing and the fact that the FBI literally oversaw the construction and deployment of a deadly bomb that killed 6, it is clear that the FBI can at any time through design or disastrous incompetence, turn one of their contrived entrapment cases into a live terror attack. One can only guess at how many similar FBI operations are currently taking place within the United States involving ISIS sympathizers – any one of which could be turned into a live terror attack provided the weapons handed over to potential terrorists are functioning, just as the bomb was in 1993 when it was driven into the lower levels of the World Trade Center.

It is very likely that the recent attacks in Canada involved at least one “informant” working for the FBI. Because the FBI uses confidential informants to handle suspects, if a plot is switched ”live,” the informant will be implicated as an accomplice and the FBI’s covert role will remain uncompromised. 

Image: The FBI has an impressive portfolio of intentionally created, then foiled terror plots. Its methods include allowing suspects to handle both real and inoperable weapons and explosives. These methods allow the FBI to switch entrapment cases “live” at any moment simply by switching out duds and arrests with real explosives and successful attacks. Because the FBI uses “informants,” when attacks go live, these confidential assets can be blamed, obfuscating the FBI’s involvement. 

Everything from a mass shooting to a bombing, and even an Operation Northwoods-style false flag attack involving aircraft could be employed to provide Wall Street and London with the support it needs to accelerate its long-stalled agenda of regime change and reordering in both Syria and across the Iranian arc of influence. Readers may recall Operation Northwoods, reported on in an ABC News article titled, “U.S. Military Wanted to Provoke War With Cuba,” which bluntly stated:

In the early 1960s, America’s top military leaders reportedly drafted plans to kill innocent people and commit acts of terrorism in U.S. cities to create public support for a war against Cuba.  

Code named Operation Northwoods, the plans reportedly included the possible assassination of Cuban émigrés, sinking boats of Cuban refugees on the high seas, hijacking planes, blowing up a U.S. ship, and even orchestrating violent terrorism in U.S. cities.

In addition to Operation Northwoods, the public must also consider NATO’s Operation Gladio, and its larger “stay behind” networks established after World War II across Europe and at the center of multiple grisly assassinations, mass shootings, and terrorist bombings designed to demonize the Soviet Union as well as criminalize and crush support for left-leaning political parties growing in popularity in Western Europe. It would be determined that NATO’s own covert militant groups were killing innocent Western Europeans in order to effect a “strategy of tension” used to instill fear, obedience, and control over Western populations. 

That the FBI and Australian authorities had coordinated staged security operations in tandem on opposite ends of the globe to terrify their respective populations into line behind an impending war with Syria, and now two highly suspicious attacks have been carried out using the very script Western security agencies were using to lead suspects through “sting operations,” suggests a new “Operation Northwoods” or “Operation Gladio” of sorts is already being executed. 

Staged executions on cue by ISIS in the Middle East of US and British citizens at perfectly timed junctures of the West’s attempt to sell intervention both at home and abroad, and now live shootings just in time to heighten a new “strategy of  tension” reek of staged mayhem for the sole purpose of provoking war. Could grander and ultimately more tragic mayhem be in store? As ABC News’ article on Operation Northwoods and the Military Channel’s documentary on Operation Gladio suggest, there is no line Western special interests will hesitate to cross. 

With the West attempting to claim ISIS now has a “global” reach, the US and its partners’ attempts to obfuscate the very obvious state-sponsorship it is receiving will become exponentially more difficult. That the FBI is admittedly stringing along easily manipulated, malevolent patsies who at any time could be handed real weapons and sent on shooting sprees and/or bombings – and now apparently have been – Americans, Canadians, Europeans, and Australians would be foolish to conclude that their real enemy resides somewhere in Syria and not right beside them at home, upon the very seats of Western power.

Coming Soon: Major Turning Point in Sandy Hook Shooting Hoax

I had mixed feelings about posting this video because it’s long and strikes me as a wee bit of fear-mongering. Wolfgang makes some good points, but there is a lot more drama in his presentation than I feel is necessary. On the positive side, it seems that there are common law grand juries getting ready to expose the truth of Sandy Hook. -LW


Wolfgang Halbig on Sandy Hook ~ Staged Government Community Event- It was a DHS/FBI/FEMA HSEEP/ICE Drill- an “INTEGRATED CAPSTONE EVENT” (see DHS website)

“There WILL BE a proper Coronial Inquest where all the witnesses (including the cops/feds) are put on the stand and cross-examined under oath and where ALL the evidence (forensic, ballistics, eye-witnesses, documentary) is also presented and carefully analysed and tested again, under oath.

A Common Law Grand Jury constituted of WE THE PEOPLE will challenge the state’s assertions that Sandy Hook really happened as they say it did, their assertions will be vigorously contested.

Their completely discredited and bogus “narrative” wouldn’t stand up for two seconds under competent and rigorous cross-examination.”

GREENLAWN, NY– Wolfgang Halbig, former teacher, law enforcement, and current national school safety assessment & emergency management consultant, maintains that the so-called Sandy Hook CT shootings were a staged cooperative government – community “Capstone” exercise planned years before December 2012, for the purpose of banning commonly-used firearms and limiting free speech. Halbig asserts the incident was a financial bonanza for the Newtown community and involved parents, all of whom moved into the CT community only between 2009-2011, and all receiving over $200K each for their involvement in the exercise.

Halbig’s questions are returned with silence and contempt; threat of arrest. Many details don’t add up… record shows no report of actual shots fired; no social security numbers for the dead students; 16 state troopers pre-positioned 45-60 minutes before the alleged shootings, and much more. Halbig also presents the proper safety procedures that schools must follow in a code-red event and urges parents to study your local school emergency management plan.– FULL LENGTH VIDEO– October 6, 2014

Did the Bowe Bergdahl Story Get Michael Hastings Killed?

Good question. DID the Bowe Bergdahl story get Michael Hastings killed? Like the writer says in the article below… “If you don’t believe that is possible then you simply have not been paying attention. Our government doesn’t like real investigative reporters who expose the truth.”

I’ve been waiting for more information on the murder of investigative journalist Michael Hastings because we have not yet learned the official truth. A bogus article came out shortly after the car crash saying Hastings had been working on a story about Obama’s birth certificate, so we KNOW it wasn’t about THAT.

If research on that topic got people killed, then Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his men would already be dead, and plenty of others.

The people who are erased are the ones who are bribed or threatened, perhaps like the Director of Health in Honolulu, HI, Loretta Fuddy, who (maybe falsified records?) and authenticated and released Obama’s birth certificate. Funny how she was the only one killed in the convenient little plane crash off Molokai recently, isn’t it? Now she’ll never be able to tell the truth about what transpired.

Oh, but NBC reported she died of heart arrhythmia AFTER the crash, when the first eyewitness reports said she didn’t make it out of the plane with the rest, and we know how good the feds are at creating heart attacks in their victims. But that’s another story.  There’s always more than one yarn to be spun after a witness is offed.

Below is one offering as to why Michael Hastings may have been assassinated to shut him up and end his investigation.  More dots may have been connected with this Bowe Bergdahl event. 

Could this suggest why Obama refused to follow through on his promise to close Guantanamo—because it gives the criminal cabal the bargaining leverage they thought they might need at some point?  ~ BP

michael hastings crash

June 5, 2014

There have been many credible reports, from those who were in Afghanistan, which stated clearly that fellow soldiers were under orders of silence in reference to the desertion of Bowe Bergdahl. It is somewhat understandable to be guarded of sensitive information.

However…

If a reporter was able to reach out to those same troops, and get them to break that silence, would that be enough to get such reporter killed?

On June 7, 2012 Michael Hastings had a piece published in Rolling Stone titled America’s Last Prisoner of WarThis was not a fluff piece. It was hard-hitting journalism that was the trademark of Michael Hastings’ reporting. Even back in 2012 Hastings was reporting that Bowe was a deserter and a lot of the stories you have been hearing and reading over the last week stemmed from that ground-breaking account. He was ahead of his time and effectively blew the lid off this story long before it was a story. Here is a brief excerpt from the article, although I would encourage you to read it in full.

The next day, American forces had a chance to free Bowe. The battalion operations officer, call sign GERONIMO 3, met with two tribal elders from the nearby village. The elders had been asked by the Taliban to arrange a trade with U.S. forces. The insurgents wanted 15 of their jailed fighters released, along with an unidentified sum of money, in exchange for Bowe. The officer hedged, unwilling or unable to make such a bargain, and no deal was struck. Instead, the Army ordered all units stationed in the eastern half of Afghanistan – known as RC East, in military jargon – to join the search for Bowe.

On July 4th, the search effort got a break: Bowe was spotted in a village in Ghazni, about 15 miles across the mountains to the west. He was wearing khaki, with a bag covering his head, and he was being driven in a black Toyota Corolla, escorted by three to five motorcycles. But by the time troops arrived to investigate, it was too late. That was the last time that Bowe would be seen until the first propaganda video, released later that month.

Michael Hastings got Bowe Bergdahl’s fellow soldiers to speak upon conditions of anonymity while disobeying the “gag orders” of their superiors.

Many in the alternative media community believe that Michael Hastings did not simply die in a car accident on June 18, 2013. They believe that accident was the result of sabotage. However, the prevalent theory has been that, if he was targeted, it must have had something to do with the NSA. Tim Brown reported back in August of 2013:

Ironically, Hastings had sent the following email to close friends just hours before his death:

“Subject: FBI Investigation, re: NSA -Hey (redacted names) — the Feds are interviewing my “close friends and associates.” Perhaps if the authorities arrive “BuzzFeed GQ,” er HQ, may be wise to immediately request legal counsel before any conversations or interviews about our news gathering practices or related journalism issues. Also: I’m onto a big story, and need to go off the rada[r] for a bit.”

Some have speculated that Hastings’ car was booby trapped due to the numerous explosions. Former counter-terror czar Richard Clarke reacted to the news by telling the Huffington Post that the fatal crash was “consistent with a car cyber attack.”

Even though the FBI was investigating Hastings over his NSA reporting, that was not their only investigation into Michael Hastings. Yesterday Eric Barlow, reporting for wearechange.org, brought to light a scarcely known FBI document that was obtained through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request:

At the time of the story’s publication, the media had all but forgotten about Bergdahl — who was released on Saturday after five years in the hands of the Taliban, in exchange for five Guantanamo prisoners. And, with the exception of some initial chatter, Hastings’ piece, which paints a deeply unflattering picture of Bergdahl’s unit and its leadership, hardly had the impact of some of his other investigations.

But someone did pay attention to it: the FBI.

That, at least, is what was revealed in a heavily redacted document released by the agency following a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request — filed on the day of Hastings’ death — by investigative journalist Jason Leopold and Ryan Shapiro, an MIT doctoral student whom the Justice Department once called the “most prolific” requester of FOIA documents.

For the FBI to launch an investigation into a Rolling Stone article about a military deserter would seem to open up a whole line of potential questions, but it can be simplified with just one.

Why?

These are the things that conspiracy theories are made of. Would this story have been enough to get Michael Hastings silenced permanently? Was it more of a case of Hastings whole body of work? Or was it simply a legitimate car accident?

We will likely never know the answer to these questions and some will say it’s a stretch to even ask them. But you do not get to the truth without asking tough questions. My personal opinion is that this would only be enough if there was something larger that the government was trying to hide. For instance, and I am not stating these as facts, maybe Bergdahl worked for the CIA or maybe he really was working with The Taliban.

The original FBI report has been partially unredacted because of legal challenges. If you would like to read the report, you can see it at www.documentscloud.org

Whether the story of Bowe Bergdahl would have been enough to get Michael Hastings killed is certainly debatable. But you can not deny that he was way ahead of everyone else on this story as with many other stories.

This is the same guy who ended the career of General Stanley McChrystal.

In the current political climate I doubt nothing and am surprised by nothing. Could Michael Hastings have been killed by our government to shut him up?

If you don’t believe that is possible then you simply have not been paying attention. Our government doesn’t like real investigative reporters who expose the truth. They prefer the lap-dog media that simply follows the “talking points” and narratives they are given.

‘There’s something wrong at the FBI’: Maddow Urges Release of Boston Bombing Autopsy Report

First Ashleigh Banfield on Fox, and now Rachel Maddow on MSNBC?!  The media are coming around? 

Something’s up. For the lamestream to question the validity of the official stories has always been taboo. Were they just playing along all this time, waiting for their time to step into the role they’d planned, at the perfect moment—to kick the process of reasoning into high gear?

 The fact that these two popular women are drawing a bead on this particular aspect of this particular story is  crucial, and I don’t believe it’s an accident.  It opens the door for even more dialogue—not only concerning this event, but others—and to jar the masses awake.

What’s next? Benghazi? 9/11? The star nations???!!!!

I don’t think it’s about ratings. The energies are supporting it now. It’s happening. Day by day our reality is morphing. Our new world is about to emerge. Right now we’re spinning the silk. Soon… the butterfly will emerge.  ~ BP

‘There’s something wrong at the FBI’ Maddow Urges Release of Boston Bombing Autopsy Report

Infowars

Questions surrounding mysterious death of alleged Boston bomber acquaintance pile up

Most people wouldn’t consider MSNBC host Rachel Maddow a conspiracy theorist.

The liberal-left poster child and Rhodes scholar often belittles so-called “9/11 truthers,” people who think the Sandy Hook school shooting was a staged event and people who believe the government is stockpiling ammunition.

But there’s one pesky detail concerning the Boston Marathon bombing Maddow just can’t get her head around: the mysterious circumstances behind the death of 27-year-old Ibragim Todashev at the hands of the FBI during questioning, an incident that has all the makings of a government cover-up.

In a segment last night discussing the ridiculousness of a report which found that every FBI shooting since 1993, about 150 of them, has been “deemed justified,” Maddow questioned if the agency investigating itself might not be such a good idea.

“The fact is that no one else really reviews FBI shootings other than the FBI itself, other than this internal review board. They’re federal agents, right? Nobody prosecutes them for shooting people, nobody looks into their shootings except the FBI itself. And unless you believe in the ‘perfect angels’ theory of FBI agent bullets, you better believe there’s something wrong at the FBI.

Even when games are rigged they don’t go 150 and 0. That’s not a real record. That’s not actually found in nature. Nobody is supposed to be above the law in this country, even the FBI, and there is something wrong, something obviously wrong with the way we are handling FBI shootings if every one ever reviewed in the last 20 years has been ruled ‘justified.’”

Maddow also found it strange that the FBI blocked the release of Todashev’s autopsy report, and that Todashev’s girlfriend and two friends were all “quickly deported or kept out of this country” after his death, people who could otherwise “conceivably talk about it or shed light on what happened.”

Todashev’s death really bugs Maddow. Like most Americans, she’s reluctant to accept the government purposely murders innocent people then rushes to cover it up. Yet this is, and has always been, the standard modus operandi.

The MSNBC host hopes against all odds, however, that Obama’s recent appointee as head of FBI, James Comey, who she says has a reputation for “doing what’s right,” and Attorney General Eric Holder, whose notorious reputation precedes him, will release the full report on Todashev’s death.

Is the liberal host off on a jag on this issue because she knows people are tuning out the lame-stream dinosaur media in droves? In 2013, MSNBC saw its ratings fall by nearly half, losing as many as 45 percent of its viewers. Have multiple segments on the subject been produced in a desperate attempt to ingratiate MSNBC to an information-hungry public and appear as though they actually question the government?

If you can stomach it, here’s a few of Maddow’s past conspiratorial segments aimed at getting to the bottom of the inexplicable FBI killing.
