Michael Hastings alive and well

Standard

American investigative journalist Michael Hastings was resurrected this week, and rightly so.

An article authored by Hastings and featured in a June 2012 issue of Rolling Stone was reprinted this week after American POW Bowe Bergdahl and five top Taliban prisoners held in Guantanamo bay were exchanged, causing an uproar along the political spectrum.

The deal brokered between the White House and the Taliban was not subject to any approval or congressional oversight and the war-hawks calloused by years of war heralded the decision to exchange five detainees as ‘not worth it’.

 ‘the definitive article’

Details of Bergdahls time in Afghanistan have unnerved the spindly in congress and the media who remained complacent when Bush released over 600 terrorist detainees during his reign.

Hasting’s article Bowe Bergdahl: America’s Last Prisoner of War” is a novel biopic of prophetic proportions detailing the personal story of Bowe Bergdahls parents and their son a small town home schooled ballet dancer of noted self-discipline enlisted in the marines, lost his faith in the mission and abandoned post- becoming the idol of discontent for many, including the Taliban.

All operations and resources ceased until Bergdahl was found, but he never was.

The complexity of the curious case of Bowe Bergdahl is lined in a whole new context with the war(s) drawing to a close and American support for the wars long abandoned years before Bergdahl walked away.

The detailed reporting of the sensitive case was labeled ‘controversial’ by the FBI. 

A 22-page secret FBI report dated June 11, 2012, obtained by investigative reporter Jason Leopold, shows that both Hastings and former Afghanistan war veteran and co-writer Matt Farwell were under an intense FBI investigation in early 2012. The document is highly redacted; but it appears Hastings and Farwell were under direct FBI surveillance, including when they met with Bowe Bergdahl’s parents in 2012.

Hastings, best known for the 2010 Rolling Stone cover story that ended the career of Army General Stanley McChystal began to show signs of paranoia when it became apparent this war had been extended to investigative reporters.

Michael Hastings lost his life on June 18th, 2013 after his Mercedes C250 Coupé exploded before crashing into a tree at 4AM in Los Angeles.

In its coverage of Hastings’ death, the Canada Free Press noted:

“It appears that Mr. Hastings made multiple contacts with sources directly associated with the illegal NSA domestic spying program, and either recently acquired materials and/or information about the extent of, the targets of, and the recipients of the information of domestic spying program.

 

“It is speculated that the latter information was of particular concern to as yet unidentified individuals holding positions of authority within the US Department of Defense and their subcontractors, as well as certain parties within the Executive branch of the United States government.

 

“Investigation and research suggests that Mr. Hastings might have obtained, or arranged to obtain, information pertaining to the role of a particular high-ranking officer within the US military overseeing the domestic aspects of the NSA project.”

Hours before his death, Hastings contacted Jennifer Robinson (a lawyer with Wikileaks, the secrets-sharing website) to report his concerns that the FBI was investigating him. (An FBI spokeswomen swiftly and emphatically denied that the bureau was investigating the reporter.)

Meanwhile, the possibility of “foul play” was bolstered by the discovery of a panicked email that Hastings sent to friends. In what proved to be his last message, Hastings wrote:

“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.

 

All the best, and hope to see you all soon. Michael.”

With his name in the news the lemmings that blacklisted him for breaking the ‘unwritten rules of access’ are now forced to acknowledge his journalistic achievements and foresight that cost him his life.

US Attorney General announces task force on ‘homegrown’ terrorists.

Standard

Called the Domestic Terrorism Executive Committee, it is a recreation of a task force formed by former Atty. Gen. Janet Reno after the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. The task force fell into disuse after 9/11.

Though the original task force, which was little known, focused mainly on right-wing zealots, Holder’s version is aimed at U.S. citizens or visitors radicalized via the Internet. Holder said the government will continue to fight terrorists abroad.

The ‘conference’ affirmatively ‘off-the-record’ was created with the support of the CIA after WWII with the hope of fostering dialogue and better understanding between the two cultures as anti-American sentiment in Western Europe increased and Europe fell into geo-political chaos.

[UPDATE] U.S. Supreme Court protects Fox News reporter

Standard

The Supreme Court won’t force Fox News reporter Jana Winter to reveal sources for her story on the Aurora theater shooter James Holmes, the Associated Press reports.

Image

The high court’s refusal to hear James Holmes‘ appeal leaves intact a December 2013 New York Court of Appeals ruling that said reporter Jana Winter did not have to disclose details about her sources- sources who ultimately perjured themselves under oath in Colorado and brought all credibility into question in regards to their testimony.

(link to my previous post on the subject)

A source close to the investigation disclosed the contents of a notebook to reporter Jana Winter who first ran the story that was then echoed throughout global mass-media as the key-piece of evidence detailing his planned mass-shooting, violating a gag-order placed by the first judge (who decided to quit the case all together and retire) immediately following the events of July 20th, 2012.

From Reuters article:

The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday declined to hear an appeal by a man facing trial for a high-profile mass shooting at a Colorado movie theater in 2012 over his lawyers’ attempt to force a Fox News reporter to testify.

 

The case is Holmes v. Winter, U.S. Supreme Court, No. 13-1096

 

Image

A statement from Fox News hailed the decision as a victory for free speech.

The most interesting part of this story isn’t even about how the US Supreme Court rejected the case refusing to hear the appeal by Holmes defense thereby defending free-speech or even about how a shield law in New York can and is being used to protect criminal sources in Colorado due to the complete lack of a Supreme Court decision, but that the evidence in question, a notebook; whether it will be allowed in trial is still in question- not to mention the contents of which have yet been confirmed by any entity outside Fox News. Nothing to report from law enforcement, FBI or any official appointed by court because of the gag order still in place.

Conspiracy Theorists Vindicated: HAARP confirmed weather-manipulation tool

Standard

‘Fringe Science’

The small percentage of Americans and people worldwide who understand the science, technological mechanics and potential of the HAARP facility are far and in between.

ImageAccording to Wikipedia:

HAARP, which is an acronym for High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program is an ionospheric research program jointly funded by the U.S. Air Force, the U.S. Navy, the University of Alaska, and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).[1]  It was designed and built by BAE Advanced Technologies (BAEAT) and its purpose is to analyze the ionosphere and investigate the potential for developing ionospheric enhancement technology for radio communications and surveillance.[2] The HAARP program operates a major sub-arctic facility, named the HAARP Research Station, on an Air Force–owned site near Gakona, Alaska.

The covert use of weather modification is the “climate change” we should fear most.

HAARP has long been speculated to be the culmination of eclectic research on electromagnetic radiation done by Nikola Tesla who died on January 7th, 1943.
