Pedophilia In The Catholic Church: Coverup Operation At Vatican?

leave a comment »

March 31, 2010: Mike Whitney / Global Research – March 31, 2010

Pope Benedict should do everyone a favor and resign. By hanging on, he’s just making matters worse. Who does he think he’s fooling anyway? Everyone knows that he was involved in the sex-scandal cover up. Does he really think that a few papal apologies will make a difference?  He was in charge and knew everything that was going on. That makes him responsible. His best option now is to “man up” and face the consequences. He needs to arrange a press conference, tell the truth, and resign. End of story.

It’s clear that the problem isn’t going to go away. In the last week, three more incidents have surfaced adding more fuel to the fire.  In Wisconsin, Father Lawrence Murphy abused as many as 200 boys at a Milwaukee school for the deaf. One of the victims, Arthur Budzinski, has been all over TV telling his story and blaming the pope. It’s pretty heart-wrenching stuff, too. According to Budzinski’s daughter Gigi:

“The pope knew about this. He was the one who handled the sex abuse cases. So, I think he should be accountable, because he did nothing.”

This is bad. Anyone can see that the Vatican was shuffling predators from one spot to another trying to keep the details out of the news.  Maybe Benedict thought he was doing the right thing? Maybe he thought he was just being loyal or protecting the church from litigation? Who knows what he thought; it’s beside the point. The bottom line is that people’s lives have been ruined and someone has to pay.

Here’s another bombshell which appeared in the Associated Press last week:

“In a signed statement last year, the 67 former pupils at a school for the deaf in Verona described sexual abuse, pedophilia and corporal punishment from the 1950s to the 1980s. They named 24 priests, brothers and lay religious men at the Antonio Provolo Institute for the Deaf.

One victim, Alessandro Vantini, told the AP last year that priests sodomized him so relentlessly he came to feel “as if I were dead.”

“How could I tell my papa that a priest had sex with me?” Vantini, 59, said through a sign-language interpreter. “You couldn’t tell your parents because the priests would beat you.” (“Sex abuse scandal in US, Italy taints papacy”, Nicole Winfield, AP)

67 victims here, 200 victims there; this is industrial-scale sex abuse, a veritable pedophile conveyor belt!

Naturally, the Vatican has circled the wagons and is lashing out at the media. But it’s a hopeless cause. As the head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Cardinal Ratzinger (as Benedict was known at the time)  took steps to silence priests who wanted to reveal  what they knew. In a 2001 letter to the bishops, Benedict “ordered them to keep sexual abuse allegations secret under threat of excommunication – updating a noxious church policy… that both priests accused of sex crimes and their victims “observe the strictest secret” and be “restrained by a perpetual silence.” (Washington Post)

This is obstruction of justice, and Benedict should be prosecuted. No man is above the law; not even the pope. Religious freedom isn’t license to rape children.

Benedict’s letter helps to illustrate a larger point, too. It shows that the sex abuse scandal isn’t really about sex abuse at all. It’s about the people in positions of authority who violated the public’s trust. That’s the real story. It’s about people who pretend to be “spiritual advisers”, but don’t even do the right thing when a child is sexually molested. And, these are the people who are giving advice on issues like homosexuality and birth control?

Benedict has also been implicated in a German case involving Father Peter Hullermann who was suspended from his duties but then, allowed to return to work “without restrictions” as a priest in Munich, even though a psychiatrist described him as a potential danger.

According to the New York Times: “In September 1979, the chaplain (Hullermann) was removed from his congregation after three sets of parents told his superior, the Rev. Norbert Essink, that he had molested their sons, charges he did not deny, according to notes taken by the superior and still in Father Hullermann’s personnel file… “Reports from the congregation in which he was last active made us aware that Chaplain Hullermann presented a danger that caused us to immediately withdraw him from pastoral duties.” Hullermann was allowed to return to his parish work on Feb. 1, 1980. He was finally convicted in 1986 of molesting boys in Bavaria.

Can you see a pattern here? These are more than isolated incidents. It’s like some gruesome papal crime-ring; Ratzinger’s Sopranos.

A few weeks ago, Benedict issued an apology to Catholics in Ireland for decades of cruelty and abuse. In the papal communique Benedict opined, “I can only share in the dismay and the sense of betrayal that so many of you have experienced on learning of these sinful and criminal acts and the way Church authorities in Ireland dealt with them.”

Benedict’s comments are predictably insincere. He knew exactly what was going on. As Catholic theologian, Hans Kueng points out:

“There was not a single man in the whole Catholic Church who knew more about the sex-abuse cases than him, because it was ex officio (part of his official role)… “He can’t wag his finger at the bishops and say, you didn’t do enough. He gave the instruction himself, as head of the Congregation of Doctrine of the Faith, and repeated it as Pope.”

Sinead O’Connor, Irish musician and abuse-victim, was so incensed by Benedict’s fake empathy, she wrote a fiery article for the Washington Post where she said:

“Irish Catholics are in a dysfunctional relationship with an abusive organization. The pope must take responsibility for the actions of his subordinates. If Catholic priests are abusing children, it is Rome, not Dublin, that must answer for it with a full confession and a criminal investigation. Until it does, all good Catholics… should avoid Mass. In Ireland, it is time we separated our God from our religion, and our faith from its alleged leaders.”

This case goes way beyond the sleazy details of one man’s repeated attempts to conceal the criminal activities of serial molesters and child rapists. The real issue is whether people in positions of power are to be held accountable  for their actions and whether the law really applies to everyone equally and without exception. That’s what’s at stake here.  Ratzinger needs to be indicted, prosecuted and – if found guilty – sentenced to prison.

The Tonka Report Editor’s Note: And the chances of the Pope being legally held accountable for these crimes are about as good as the CRU climate scientists being found guilty who were just cleared of any wrongdoing in a one day hearing… Zero!SJH

ClimateGate: British Committee Clear CRU Scientists Of Any Fraud

leave a comment »

March 31, 2010: Mark Matheny / Sic Sempter Tyrannis – March 31, 2010

In an article from FOX, British investigaters have cleared the Climate Gate scientists of any wrongdoing. “The House of Commons’ Science and Technology Committee said Wednesday that they’d seen no evidence to support charges that the University of East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit or its director, Phil Jones, had tampered with data or perverted the peer review process to exaggerate the threat of global warming — two of the most serious criticisms levied against the climatologist and his colleagues,” stated the article.

This “finding” comes shortly around the time Senator John Kerry, a Skull and Bones Member, who also is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, stated “In the wake of health care’s passage, we have a strong case to make that this can be the next breakthrough legislative fight,” and “Climate legislation is the single best opportunity we have to create jobs, reduce pollution and stop sending billions overseas for foreign oil from countries that would do us harm.”

An article in AFP on March 22, 2010 stated, “After a hard-fought victory on health care reform, President Barack Obama’s allies in Congress are pledging to move forward on climate change — but some environmentalists remain skeptical.

Twenty-two Democratic senators have signed a letter calling for climate legislation within the year, although some observers question whether the White House will want another divisive vote as November midterm elections approach.

Senator John Kerry, the chief architect of climate legislation, said White House officials can now “pour their energy and attention” into the issue after Sunday’s down-to-the-wire vote on expanding health care coverage.”

Could it be that the UN, U.S. and many NGOs are now in the process of damage control and media preparation in order to make way for carbon taxes? Apparently this seems to be the case. The Commitee, according to the same article, as far as they were able to ascertain, stated “the scientific reputation of Professor Jones and CRU remains intact,” and were at the conclusion that nothing contained in the 1000 plus leaked e-mails, or the controversy brought about by them challenges the global consensus that ”global warming is happening and that it is induced by human activity.”

Although the evidence of global warming has been refuted by thousands of credible scientists, the powers that are, (and who want more power) have decided to once again ignore sound evidence and public consent that global warming is a bogus sham (or just a bunch of hot air?), and have now decided to force climate legislation on us! – just as they did in the National Healthcare Bill!

It goes to show that once again, there is a deaf ear on Capital Hill, and that it will take literally millions of America’s voices to make them hear us say – NO MORE TYRANNY!

Global warming is a scam to further erode sovereign boundaries of nations, and to further destroy property rights, as well as individual freedoms.  The House of Commons’ Science and Technology Committee may have found these scientists and the CRU not guilty of wrong doing, but We The People find both the Global Warming supporters, and all who are pushing to enslave us through it – GUILTY!

FOX News Trawls Infowars Then Reports Alex Jones To Authorities

leave a comment »

March 31, 2010: Paul Joseph Watson / Prison – March 31, 2010

For anyone who thought Fox News would offer any kind of alternative to the fever pitch media demonization campaign being run by the likes of CNN and MSNBC against conservatives, libertarians, and anyone angry at the passage of Obamacare – think again. It turns out that Fox News has been spending its time trawling the comments section of looking for any excuse to shop Alex Jones in to the authorities.

That’s right – amidst thousands of political websites and millions of comments left on articles and forums across the entire spectrum of the world wide web, Fox News decided to target Alex Jones’ websites for a Nazi-style denunciation campaign in an effort to have the powers that be crack down on Infowars and shut down their competition.

“Hundreds of comments were posted in response to an incendiary story on, the radical far-right Web site owned by radio host Alex Jones. The story, entitled, ‘The Cost Of Defying Obamacare: $2,250 a Month And IRS Goons Pointing Guns At Your Family,’ focused on the ‘increasing militarization of the IRS’ and its expansion of powers under the new health care law,” writes Fox News’ Jana Winter, adding that a “federal probe has been launched into the comments”.

In a separate Fox News article about an investigation into comments allegedly posted on by an individual calling himself “ACA,” we learn that it was Fox News itself who reported the comments to authorities.

“ACA,” the husband of a military servicewoman living on a Tennessee Naval base, had his weapons seized and is under scrutiny by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service as a result of alleged threats he made to kill police officers and other government officials.

“This action was taken after inquired about the online comment,” states the article. The Fox News story is posted in the “Terror” section of the website, an effort to link Alex Jones and to terrorists.

So in actual fact Fox News is paying its employees to search through the thousands of comments Infowars receives each day that even our own moderators cannot properly keep up with, in a desperate effort to find any hint of violent rhetoric as an excuse to turn in Alex Jones to the authorities, in some kind of bizarre thought police/Nazi denunciation campaign.

Fox News isn’t interested in Neo-Nazi and white supremacist websites that openly call for violence on a daily basis, nor do they care about the hundreds of comments that can casually be found on any day of the week underneath You Tube videos calling for Obama to be assassinated – no – they’re only interested in sifting through mountains of comments on websites owned by Alex Jones that might be perceived as violent.

Anyone who listens to the Alex Jones Show will know that Jones repeatedly denounces violence on a daily basis and constantly urges people to follow the non-violent principles of Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King. This can hardly be considered a political doctrine of the “radical far-right,” as Fox frames it.

Unlike Fox News, whose lies about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq led to the slaughter of over a million people, we have no interest whatsoever in falling into the government’s trap by promoting violence.

Unlike Fox News, who aggressively push for Iran to be bombed on a regular basis, an attack that would slaughter 16-20 million people, we do not want to see anyone killed.

Behind every so-called “patriot” spouting violence you will find a federal informant. Just as OKC bomber Timothy McVeigh was directed by an FBI agent, so were the members of the Hutaree militia arrested this past weekend. Precisely as we predicted on Monday, it turns out that the group had been infiltrated by an undercover FBI agent named Thomas William Piatek.

As we have highlighted in every other major terror bust in the U.S., planned violence is always provocateured by a federal informant who has penetrated the group, providing the excuse for the bust and allowing the media to enjoy more grist for their endless fearmongering about how we need to give up our rights because terrorists are everywhere.

While scaremongering about Americans turning to violence in response to the passage of Obamacare, the government itself funds double agents like Hal Turner to pose as patriots, telling them directly to spout violence and threaten to kill federal judges.

Let us be clear – unlike the government, we don’t pay people to make violent threats against public figures, and unlike Fox News we don’t allow our media platform to be used to disseminate baseless propaganda that leads to the violent slaughter of millions of innocent people.

Fox News’ ludicrous agenda to frame Alex Jones and Infowars as instigators of violence is a blatant ploy to chill free speech, characterize opponents of Obamacare as violent thugs, and demonize us as extremists that should be silenced through the power of the state – thereby pushing the same rhetoric constantly invoked by their so-called “liberal” adversaries over at CNN and MSNBC.

This proves once again that while some of its hosts, people like Glenn Beck, masquerade as great defenders of conservatives and libertarians, Fox News itself is hell bent on joining the rest of the establishment media in framing Tea Partiers, Constitutionalists, Ron Paul supporters and patriots as violent radicals and even terrorists.

Americans Fear Totalitarian ‘ObamaCare’ Could Result In Violence

leave a comment »

March 31, 2010: Kurt Nimmo / – March 31, 2010

Rasmussen Reports released a poll on Monday indicating more than half of those surveyed are “concerned that those opposed to President Obama’s policies will resort to violence, up 10 points from last September.”

As should be expected in the highly divisive and polarized political climate in the U.S. — a climate encouraged by the government and corporate media — a split in the results falls along party lines.

“Seventy-one percent (71%) of Democrats are at least somewhat concerned that Obama’s policies will trigger a violent reaction. Fifty-six percent (56%) of Republicans are not concerned while unaffiliated voters are almost evenly divided on the question,” reports Rasmussen.

“Democrats in particular have raised the specter of possible violence following their passage of a national health care plan that has been consistently opposed by most voters. They raised similar concerns following the angry congressional town hall meetings last August when voters complained about the health care plan and other expensive Obama initiatives.”

Another poll shows that a majority of Americans want Obamacare repealed. “One week after the House of Representatives passed the health care plan proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats, 54% of the nation’s likely voters still favor repealing the new law.”

Most voters, according to the poll, are not taken by the rhetoric of Democrats. Only 17% of all voters believe the plan will achieve one of its primary goals and reduce the cost of health care. Most (55%) believe it will have the opposite affect and increase the cost of care.

A Washington Post poll produced similar results. “Americans overwhelmingly see the new health care law as a major shift in the direction of the country, but they remain as deeply divided today over the changes as they were throughout the long congressional debate,” write Jon Cohen and Dan Balz.

“The health care debate galvanized the country to a remarkable extent. About a quarter of all adults say they tried to contact their elected representatives in Congress about health care in recent months, including nearly half of those who say they are ‘angry’ about the changes. In general, opponents of the measure were more than twice as likely as supporters to say they had made the effort.”

A CNN poll conducted on March 22 showed that 59% of respondents opposed the bill, and 56% believed the bill gave the federal government too much power.

Democrats in Congress ignored overwhelming opposition and passed Obama’s “historic” legislation, thus demonstrating the federal government does indeed have too much power.

“Nearly two-thirds of Americans say the health care overhaul signed into law last week costs too much and expands the government’s role in health care too far,” a USA Today/Gallup poll shows. “Those surveyed are inclined to fear that the massive legislation will increase their costs and hurt the quality of health care their families receive.”

Obamacare “scares at least half of this deeply divided nation. They should be scared,” writes one blogger. He points out the obvious: Obamacare will increase an already unsustainable national debt significantly.

Obama has increased the national debt over $2 trillion since he took office. The debt now stands at $12.6 trillion. On the day Obama took office it was $10.6 trillion. “President George W. Bush still holds the record for the most debt run up on his watch: $4.9 trillion. But it took him over four years to rack up the first two trillion dollars in debt. It has taken Mr. Obama 421 days,” reports CBS News.

CBS quotes official numbers that are demonstrably inaccurate, however. “Washington’s Enron-style accounting is now so widespread and so deeply ingrained, the nation could be bankrupt and not even know it,” writes the August Review. “The national debt is at least five times bigger than official tallies… Almost every number coming out of Washington has been thoroughly massaged and greatly distorted, almost always with a bias toward sweeping the dirt under the carpet and sugarcoating the truth.”

“ObamaCare is a bad deal made to look good through funny accounting,” writes Evan Newmark for The Wall Street Journal. “Rep. Paul Ryan (R., Wisc.) puts the real cost on ObamaCare at $2.3 trillion. That is a lot of money — especially in a country that already has $13 trillion in debt.” (Again, the actual debt is much higher.)

Obamacare will cost 50 times what the AIG bailout cost. It will cost six times the $400 billion that will end up squandered on Fannie and Freddie. Obamacare will raise taxes significantly and wreck future GDP. It will impoverish your children and grand children who will owe a massive debt to the bankers.

Democrats are oblivious to all of this. Instead, they whine about irate and even obscene phone calls and emails sent to Congress by outraged Americans. Republicans hope to exploit it so they can be the Tweedledum party in control after the next dog and pony show.

Fox News, supposedly a bastion for “conservative” Republicans, has run two articles over a period of 24 hours claiming that anti-IRS forces are mustering on Alex Jones’ website, Hysteria created by Fox News, the corporate media, the Southern Poverty Law Center and numerous “liberal” blogs and websites over the last few weeks has now resulted in a government investigation of

Makes sense. The bankers and globalists own both political parties and control the corporate media. Establishment foundations fund and call the shots for many so-called liberal websites and blogs., Prison, and a handful of other patriot websites are the only information sources out there telling the truth.

Here is the truth: Obamacare is about banker debt. It is designed to destroy the United States under the smoke screen of soft and squishy “yes we can” humanism. Democrats and Republicans will not tell you this. The New York Times and the cherished Operation Mockingbird crown jewel, the Washington Post, will not tell you this. The Wall Street Journal and the Financial Times will nibble around the edges, but they will not level with you either.

The American people, in ever increasing numbers, are beginning to learn the truth through truth telling alternative news websites and many are mobilizing in response. That is why the establishment is attempting to take down Alex Jones and It has nothing to do with blather mouths and irrational comments on Jones’ websites — that is common fare across the internet. The establishment is desperate to take down the truth in any way they can. False flag attacks and violence pinned on their enemies are the preferred methods.

The United States Biometrics Identity Management Agency – BIMA

leave a comment »

March 31, 2010: Steven Aftergood / Secrecy News – March 29, 2010

As of last week, there is now a U.S. Government national security agency called the Biometrics Identity Management Agency (BIMA). It supersedes a Biometrics Task Force that was established in 2000. Though nominally a component of the Army, the biometrics agency has Defense Department-wide responsibilities.

“The Biometrics Identity Management Agency leads Department of Defense activities to prioritize, integrate, and synchronize biometrics technologies and capabilities and to manage the Department of Defense’s authoritative biometrics database to support the National Security Strategy,” according to a March 23 Order (pdf) issued by Army Secretary John M. McHugh that redesignated the previous Biometrics Task Force as the BIMA.

Biometrics is generally defined as “a measurable biological (anatomical and physiological) [or] behavioral characteristic that can be used for automated recognition.”

“Biometric data [are] normally unclassified,” according to a 2008 DoD directive (pdf). “However, elements of the contextual data, information associated with biometric collection, and/or associated intelligence analysis may be classified.”

“Biometrics-enabled Intelligence [refers to] intelligence information associated with and or derived from biometrics data that matches a specific person or unknown identity to a place, activity, device, component, or weapon that supports terrorist / insurgent network and related pattern analysis, facilitates high value individual targeting, reveals movement patterns, and confirms claimed identity.”

“Biometrics is an important enabler that shall be fully integrated into the conduct of DoD activities to support the full range of military operations,” the 2008 directive stated.

“Every day thousands of [biometric] records are collected and sent to the Department of Defense (DOD) Automated Biometric Identification System (ABIS) to store and compare against existing records,” a 2009 DoD report (pdf) said. “The technology is improving such that a submission from theater [e.g., in Afghanistan] can be searched in the DOD ABIS and a response sent back to theater in less than two minutes.”

“Realtime positive identification of persons of interest enables Coalition forces to target, track, and prosecute known or potential adversaries,” the DoD report said.

100 Million Americans Question Government’s Official 9/11 Story

leave a comment »

March 30, 2010: Joel S. Hirschhorn / Global Research – March 30, 2010

The failure to rebuild the World Trade Center site in Manhattan has received endless attention.  But public anger about this failed reconstruction should not be seen so negatively.  After all, mental reconstruction has also still not been successful and is surely more needed, with too many Americans still accepting the official government story about 9/11.  This, despite a huge amount of compelling evidence that elements of the US government played some role, despite a very large, active 9/11 truth movement, and despite an impressive number of highly credible people demanding a new investigation as documented at

In the recent Angus Reid Public Opinion survey of a representative national sample of American adults, 62 per cent of respondents disagree with the view that the “Sept. 11 incident was a big fabrication as a pretext for the campaign against terrorism and a prelude for staging an invasion against Afghanistan.”   Far more Republicans disagree at 80 percent, compared to 66 percent of Independents and 55 percent of Democrats.

Consistent with this is that two-thirds of Americans (67 percent) agree with the government commission that investigated the events of Sept. 11, 2001, which concluded that an attack was carried out by 19 hijackers who were members of the al-Qaeda terrorist organization, led by Osama bin Laden.  Though 12 per cent of respondents reject the commission’s findings, one-in-five Americans (21 percent) are undecided.  In particular, 35 percent of Independents and 34 percent of Democrats do not accept the official version, compared to just 20 percent of Republicans.

These figures translate to about 100 million Americans that question or find fault with the official 9/11 story, far from a trivial number and far too many to dismiss as conspiracy nuts and part of the lunatic fringe.  This is the important message that merits public appreciation.

That the mainstream media refuses to acknowledge this kind of public sentiment reflects on their lack of courage to dig deep into the role of the government and face the truth.  This behavior does nothing to improve American democracy and trust in government.  True patriots must acknowledge that government through the terrible acts of some individuals can carry out hideous acts; there is a bipartisan history of this.  Truth is the best way to stop such behavior.

Clearly, Republicans have blocked out the painful possibility that the Bush-Cheney administration played a role in 9/11.  This may also explain why the large tea party movement that results from strong disillusionment with government does not embrace the 9/11 truth movement.

Here is my perspective: If far more Americans rejected or questioned the official government story and demanded a new investigation, we would get the mental reconstruction sorely needed to ensure that the government never again uses a false flag operation to advance a policy (wars in Iraq and Afghanistan) that would not otherwise receive public support, especially one that kills thousands of Americans, both civilians and soldiers.

That the reconstruction at ground zero in Manhattan has still not succeeded symbolizes that the wounds of 9/11 are not healed, which means that we still have some chance of demanding and discovering the full truth, regardless of how painful it is.  The cost of a first-rate new investigation might be $50 million, far less than the billions of dollars to reconstruct the Manhattan site.

In the end, truth is more important than new buildings.  Worse than a hole in the ground is a hole in our national soul.  We need Congress to authorize and fund a new 9/11 investigation.  The highly fragmented 9/11 truth movement must unite behind a political strategy to make this happen.  The only reason to fear a new investigation is the likely unsettling finding that, indeed, the US government was a lot more than incompetent and negligent.

HR 4872: The Reconciliation Act Brings Microchipping To America

leave a comment »

March 30, 2010: Skywatch Canada / Infowars – March 30, 2010

During the thorough coverage of H.R.3590 America thought it was free of a ‘Healthcare System’ that allowed a national medical registry to be created and the population to be tagged with implantable RFID chips. But a second heath care related bill called “The Reconciliation Act of 2010” (2300 pages) was recently passed by the Senate on March 25th after being passed by the House on March 21st. This bill has been cleared for the White House and awaits the signature of the Dictator and Chief. Buried in the text of the 2300 page monstrosity in section 2521, the creation of a National Medical Device Registry is enacted. This is portrayed as a registry to collect safety data on medical devices such as pacemakers and to put the safety data in a publicly accessible national electronic database.

But as usual the wording of this bill permits the creation of something entirely quite different. In 2004 the FDA approved the Verichip for use of storing medical records. This device was classified as a Class II medical device. This is most likely the Class II implantable device being referred to in this section of the bill. The bill allows the unique device identifier (Chip ID tag) to be linked to “postmarket safety patient outcome data” regarding the implantable device itself. In order “to facilitate the analyses of postmarket safety and patient outcomes” the health secretary will examine ways to gain access to Medicare health records, private sector health records and other data deemed necessary (including surveillance data) by the Health Secretary and then link it to the database and your RFID implant. Just to be accurate, section (3) defines “data” as “claims data, patient survey data, standardized analytic files that allow for the pooling and analysis of data from disparate data environments, electronic health records, and any other data deemed appropriate by the secretary.”

So basically this bill creates a National Database of any type of data deemed appropriate by the executive branch of the US Federal Government. This could literally be anything. This could include anything you might have expected to find in an East German Stasi file. All of this data will then be linked to a “Class II implantable device” under your skin. There you have it, just like Lindsey Williams warned us. Forget the national ID card, implantable microchips are coming to a clinic near you no later than 36 months after the bill is signed into law.

The Strange Case Of Kristopher T. Sickles And The Hutaree Militia

leave a comment »

March 30, 2010: Kurt Nimmo / Infowars – March 29, 2010

One of the men arrested in the FBI and Homeland Security raids on the Hutaree Militia in Michigan last weekend appeared on the Alex Jones Show in 2009 after it was widely suspected he was a government operative. Kristopher Sickles, aka “Pale Horse” (a reference to the late William Cooper’s book Behold a Pale Horse), is named in the federal indictment against members of the Hutaree Militia. He is reportedly a member of the Ohio Militia.

It turns out he is probably not a government operative as originally suspected — at least not consciously — and is instead a mentally ill individual who joined the Hutaree in order to realize his perverse fantasies. In October of 2008, Sickles posted a video on YouTube. Dressed in military fatigues, wearing a camouflaged balaclava over his face, and cradling an AR-15 carbine, he calls on Americans to arm themselves. “Things are bad. Things are real bad, and it’s going to be a lot worse — our country is in peril,” he declares. The video was viewed more than 70,000 times before YouTube removed it.

In April of the following year, Pale Horse posted another video on YouTube. In the second video, he calls for a demonstration of at least one million armed militia men marching on Washington. “No shooting, no one gets hurt. Just a demonstration,” he explains. “The only difference from any typical demonstration is we will all be armed.” He specifically mentions Alex Jones in the video.

Soon after the first video drew attention, accusations arose that Sickles, then known only as Pale Horse, was a government operative and his video was specifically designed to portray legitimate state militias in a negative and sinister light. In fact, the corporate media did use the Ohio Militia video as part of its campaign to demonize the patriot movement in 2009.

On August 17, 2009, Alex Jones interviewed Pale Horse after the corporate media exploited him as part of its ongoing propaganda offensive.

“Either you were doing this to get attention, knowing that putting this mystique on [Pale Horse’s use of a voice changer in the video], as you call it, would make the media pick up on what you were saying — because it was useful to them — or you are a Adam Gadahn type fed or foundation hired person meant to make the militias look dangerous and fringe and bad,” said Jones.

Adam Gadahn is the American media spokesman for al-Qaeda and widely regarded as an intelligence operative. Gadahn is the first American charged with treason by the U.S. government since 1952.

Alex characterized Pale Horse’s video effort as an “art project” intended to draw attention to himself and the Ohio Militia. During the interview, Sickles described himself and the Ohio Militia as legitimate and not part of a disinformation or intelligence operation designed to discredit the larger militia movement. See the video below.

According to the Irregular Times, however, there is a darker and more perverse side to Kristopher Sickles. He is not a constitutionalist or mainstream militia member. “For Kristopher Sickles, who used the Hutaree pseudonym ‘Pale Horse,’ Christianity served as a perfect combination of righteous indignation and an excuse to behave in inexcusable ways. In particular, Sickles found in Christianity an excuse to kill people.”

Hutaree Militia members in Federal custody. Kristopher Sickles is second from left on bottom row.

Sickles released a film in 2009 he had written and directed entitled Dement Incarnate. The main character of the film is a serial killer who is depicted reveling in the slaughter of a young child. Sickles created a MySpace page on the film.

Irregular Times: “The fascination Sickles has with serial killing is particularly fascinating when it is considered in the context of a shorter film Sickles made: American Jihad. That video depicts a fantasy sequence of a businessman happening upon an Islamic terrorist hideout in rural Michigan. Men in camouflage shout Muslim catch phrases as they torture and kill the businessman. The interesting thing is that the deadly terrorists, in their rural Michigan hideout, are quite like the group Kris Sickles aligned himself with. The only difference is that the Hutarees practice a different religion.”

We now know that Kristopher Sickles, as Alex Jones speculated, is little more than a self-absorbed poseur who lives in a violent fantasy world. The Hutaree Militia allowed him the possibility of realizing his warped and sadistic fantasies.

Irregular Times continues: “Considering American Jihad [another violent film produced by Sickles], we see that Pale Horse Kris Sickles was, consciously or not, using these videos he created as a way of contemplating his own violent desires. In both videos, he copes with his own guilty interest in killing by depicting the murderers as his enemies: Muslims and other non-Christians. However, as much as he attempts to place the urge to murder outside of himself, the reflection of Sickles’s own fascination emerges clear as day. The very sadism he accuses others of in order to justify their murder is a cruelty he harbors within himself.”

The Michigan Militia quickly moved to put an end to any speculation that it was associated with the Hutaree Militia. On the United States Militia message board yesterday, a post emphatically decried any association:

“Please convey to the fools that are propagating this dis-information that it is the Hutaree, an extreme right Christian group that has been targeted and members from Ohio… along with some people affiliated with the Hutaree. I can tell you that the Michigan Militia Corp Wolverines, SMVM, WMVM, WCMVM and any other affiliated units of ours have NOT been targeted and we have no knowledge of any Michigan Militia member being arrested. The Hutaree is NOT the Michigan Militia and they are NOT a Constitutional based militia but rather a biblical based militant group.”

As of this writing, it appears Mr. Sickles is not a government operative, although as history repeatedly demonstrates the FBI is not beyond exploiting such mentally unstable individuals in its effort to demonize the establishment’s enemies.

Sickles is entirely responsible for his fate. His association with the Hutaree is more about his violent fantasies than restoring the republic and demanding the federal government respect and obey the Constitution.

The Tonka Report Editor’s Note: Depending how the corporate media is ordered to spin this and/or how the government will exploit it, this all leads to the same dark road of demonizing the real Patriots in order to quell any uprising as they rape the last vestiges of our freedom and Constitution into oblivion… – SJH

NYC Activates A Police State Security Plan After Moscow Bombings

leave a comment »

March 29, 2010: David Morgan / Reuters – March 29, 2010

(Reuters) – New York police doubled patrols of the subway system and sent a battery of police cars to transit hubs as a precaution on Monday following the Moscow subway bombings.

In Washington, police sent bomb-sniffing dogs to random Metro stations and rail yards as part of heightened security associated with the Moscow attacks, in which two female suicide bombers killed at least 38 people on packed metro trains during rush hour on Monday.

Though the Moscow bombings appear related to the conflict in the North Caucasus and New York’s greatest threat is seen as coming from al Qaeda, police enacted the same security detail that they roll out after any attack elsewhere in the world.

This time it closely follows one man’s admission he was plotting a suicide bombing of New York subways with al Qaeda training. “We don’t have any information suggesting that it’s related (to al Qaeda) but as a precaution we are increasing coverage,” police spokesman and Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne said.

The city’s fleet of “critical response vehicles” that guard sensitive locations were sent to mass transit hubs such as Grand Central Terminal and Penn Station, Browne said. Officers patrolling the subways overnight were kept on duty as the morning shift reported, practically doubling the number of officers. The city may also send a detective to Moscow, as it often does following similar attacks around the world, Browne said.

The New York Police Department has detectives in 11 foreign cities working to prevent foreign extremists from hitting New York, which has been attacked twice — on September 11, 2001, and in a 1993 truck bombing of the World Trade Center.

The New York subway system security came under intense scrutiny after the transit attacks on Madrid in 2004 and London in 2005. On February 22, Afghan immigrant Najibullah Zazi pleaded guilty to plotting a suicide bomb attack on New York City subways with al Qaeda training for what would have been the worst attack on the United States since 2001.

“Whether they are related or not our standard operating procedure is to take precautions until more is known,” Browne said.

Coincidentally on Monday, Washington’s Metro was holding a planned drill simulating a bus explosion in the parking lot of a sports stadium. That coincided with the sweeps of train stations, the locations of which were not being announced in advance.

“When we opened the Metro system this morning, we did so with heightened security,” Metro Transit Police Acting Chief Jeri Lee said in a statement. “We remain an open system and we do what we can to be as secure as possible.”

Feds Release An Indictment Against The ‘Hutaree’ Michigan Militia

March 29, 2010: Kurt Nimmo / Infowars – March 29, 2010

In the wake of the FBI and Homeland Security raid on the Hutaree militia in Michigan over the weekend, the government has released its indictment.

“Nine members of a Lenawee County-based militia group were planning to ‘levy war’ against the United States and ‘oppose by force’ the nation’s government, according to an indictment released this morning in U.S. District Court in Detroit,” reports the Detroit News. “The five-count indictment was unsealed this morning and alleges that between August 2008 and the present, the defendants were attempting to use bombs and other weapons to oppose the U.S. government.”

In addition to weapons charges and use of a “weapon of mass destruction” (sic), the government plans to charge the defendants with sedition. Sedition is regarded as falling one step short of the more serious crime of treason. The seditious conspiracy charge carries a maximum prison term of 20 years. The charge of using a “weapon of mass destruction” may result in a life sentence for the defendants.

The accused include: David Brian Stone, 45; his wife, Tina Stone, 44; his son, Joshua Matthew Stone, 21, all three of Clayton; and his other son, David Brian Stone Jr., 19, of Adrian. Also, Joshua Clough, 28, of Blissfield; Michael Meeks, 40 of Manchester; Thomas Piatek, 46, of Whiting, Ind.; Kristopher Sickles, 27, of Sandusky, Ohio; and Jacob Ward, 33, of Huron, Ohio.

“This is an example of radical and extremist fringe groups which can be found throughout our society,” Andrew Arena, FBI special agent in charge, told the newspaper. “The FBI takes such extremist groups seriously, especially those who would target innocent citizens and the law enforcement officers who protect the citizens of the United States.”

The Department of Homeland Security has worked closely with the Southern Poverty Law Center, long a source of conspiracy theories about militias. In 2004, the FBI revealed the SPLC was involved with government operative and convicted Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh and the Aryan Republican Army at Elohim City. McVeigh’s contact at Elohim City was Andreas Carl Strassmeir, a former German intelligence officer. Peter Langan, the son of a retired U.S. Marine intelligence officer and said to be the leader of the Aryan Republican Army, was a government informant.

Radio talk show host and racist firebrand Hal Turner recently admitted in federal court that he worked for the FBI as a “National Security Intelligence” asset. “Turner also claims the FBI coached him to make racist, anti-Semitic and other threatening statements on his radio show, but the newspaper also found many federal officials were concerned that his audience might follow up on his violence rhetoric,” the Associated Press reported in November, 2009. Turner’s code name was “Valhalla” and “he received thousands of dollars from the FBI to report on such groups as the Aryan Nations and the white supremacist National Alliance.

The FBI, under its long-running COINTELPRO, subsidized, armed, directed and protected the Klu Klux Klan and other racist groups.

“Because the Hutaree had planned a covert reconnaissance operation for April, which had the potential of placing an unsuspecting member of the public at risk, the safety of the public and of the law enforcement community demanded intervention at this time,” said Barbara McQuade, the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan.

Hutaree means “Christian soldier,” according to the group, and members say they are preparing for battle with the Anti-Christ.

The indictment accuses the Christian group of planning to kill a member of law enforcement, possibly after a traffic stop, to “prompt a response by law enforcement.” The alleged goal of this murder, according to the government, would be to “intimidate and demoralize law enforcement, diminishing their ranks and rendering them ineffective.”

The indictment says the group then intended to use the incident to spark a “war” against law enforcement, using bombs, ambushes and prepared fighting positions.

It remains to be seen if the FBI had informers and agents provocateurs in the Hutaree militia.
