Chapter Cinco | de Mayo

Last Updated on by

The days of May in Texas can be hot, rainy, humid, sunny and cool, all in the same day, especially when on a motorcycle.
The 17th day of May in 2015 was one such day for at least 192 motorcycle enthusiasts as they came from different parts of Texas and even one C.o.C.&I. member rode in from Oklahoma. They traveled to attended a scheduled, Regional Confederation of Clubs and Independents, meeting at the Twin Peaks restaurant in the Central Texas Market Place in South Waco near where Interstate 35 and Hwy 6 interchange.

Many of the pictures of the tragedy from the media, bystanders, Wacoans or even law enforcement, each have a different back drop, which will help those who view the image, to understand that the time of day matters quite a bit when trying to piece together what is being viewed.

Cossacks ABC hugging member | SS Tattoo and patches
Approximately 1pm on 05-17-15 the Cossack ABC – the Bearded fellow near the wall with a white cell phone in his hands (which was not included in Discovery) is hugging another Cossacks MC member | Also pictured are Army Veteran Kris Rhyne – left center – with an SS Tattoo on his left arm and Army Veteran Trey Short -far right- with SS patches on his cut. (Trey Short is now deceased) The MC Member being hugged – in front of ABC, as well as the member with his right arm in the tree branch – far left, and the tall lanky guy – right center – do not seem to be among those whom were arrested on May 17th, 2015. The bearded man with a Yellow bandana in the back left pocket is Bryan Harper, as seen with blood on his hands after transporting several of his wounded brothers to EMS staging areas far away from where they were injured.

The images, details, facts, and a true account of what happened that fateful day in May, were all limited by Law Enforcement to such a degree, that one would now ask, “did they know they would have to lie to the public, in order to win in court?” (The answer: Yes. This is a mess of epic proportions.)

The definition of a “Sniper” from the United States Marine Corps is: “A USMC Scout Sniper is a Marine, highly skilled in fieldcraft and marksmanship, who can deliver long-range precision fire on selected targets, from concealed positions.

USMC scout snipers in front of SS flag 2011
USMC scout snipers in front of SS flag in 2011 (notice the scopes and long barrels of the Sniper Rifles.) The longer the barrel, the more accurate the weapon.

In February 2012, U.S. media reported that Marine scout snipers had been using the double Sig rune (ϟϟ, “SS”) in its “Armanen” form (Runic "ᛋᛋ") to symbolize their function since at least the 1980s. The same stylized double rune was the symbol of the SS, the Nazi organization that was instrumental in conducting the Holocaust. Strong media criticism of this practice ensued. The Commandant of the Marine Corps gave orders to stop it, issued an apology, and ordered an investigation into the prevalence of this practice.”

The use of the Runic "ᛋᛋ" in Motorcycle culture is very guarded and not very clear as to the importance of the insignia for select members. From what is known of the symbol in the American Marine Corps is that it is used for the elite soldier to signify their elite talents. Very much like the secretive and elite members of our Nations finest fighting forces, the misunderstanding of the general population towards their actions and use of symbols, is supposed to be unknown, or a grey area at best.

Some things are better left unsaid towards the civilian world when the elite arms of our “law enforcement” are used over seas it seems, however it is not regarded as legal to use at home on civilians.

The reader can perform a Google search and find results for “Drone Program Success Rate” and find that the use of technology and weaponized technology is not always the best solution. A sniper is the human factor that comes in between digital intelligence and a target, to ensure that the proper target is acquired and that lethal force is the only solution for the neutralization of said target. A drone is simply a robot that delivers a payload on to a target.

These symbols that the bikers wear, are likely going to be one of those things that the general public will never understand until you sacrifice your life for the service of ones country or one’s club.

Motorcycle Clubs are very family/military oriented, as Veterans like structure in the chaos of civilian life, they find that riding a motorcycle with another like minded person evokes that spirit well. Military folks miss the structure of the military life, and the purpose that comes from unity.

That UNITY is what is under attack by the Federal Prosecutors from the Department of Justice.
Do NOT let misunderstood symbols sway your judgement in trying to figure out what things mean to other people.
To Federal Prosecutors, an MC member’s symbols are more lethal to you, than the average police man. Think about that.

There are pictures of McLennan County Sheriff’s department “snipers”  (images 1, and 1a), Department of Public Safety “snipers” (images 2, 3, and 4),
and there are pictures of  Waco Police Department “Snipers” that might have fired their S.W.A.T. issued “sniper rifles” at civilians in the Don Carlos parking lots and Twin Peaks parking lots, however there was only one “sniper” rifle turned over to B.A.T.F.E. ballistics to be tested on behalf of all law enforcement, and that rifle belongs to former Army SSGT and Waco Police Department Officer Michael Bucher.

Waco Police S.W.A.T. were not the only “snipers” to have a firing position that day. The question of how many “snipers” were in position at Twin Peaks, still remains a mystery, as the definition of “sniper” has still not been presented to the public in open court. Perhaps that issue has been resolved in a Grand Jury setting, and we will never know.

There were at least 3 possible DPS “snipers” as well.
The issue of the rifles involved by the multiple agencies, and their armory of record, is of very much importance to anyone familiar with the statute that forbids the military forces from being used against civilians. 18 U.S. Code § 1385 – Use of Army and Air Force as posse comitatus

Whoever, except in cases and under circumstances expressly authorized by the Constitution or Act of Congress, willfully uses any part of the Army or the Air Force as a posse comitatus or otherwise to execute the laws shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than two years, or both.

Where were McLennan county S.W.A.T. officers positioned in the Central Texas Market Place Shopping Center?

Where did McLennan County Sheriffs S.W.A.T. officers receive their weapons used on May 17th, 2015? There were 40 – M-14 RIFLE, 7.62 MILLIMETER rifles purchased in January of 2007 from the 1033 Department of Defense Military Surplus program by McLennan County, for aiding police departments in acquiring military grade equipment.

The full list of inventory in the State of Texas for items purchased using the 1033 program – Purchasing Military Surplus,  can be found here (Link is to an Excel Spreadsheet): STATE PROPERTY BOOK

The same 1033 program that sold Department of Defense Surplus Military Grade M-14’s to the DPS.

In the United States, the 1033 Program transfers excess military equipment to civilian law enforcement agencies. The program legally requires the Department of Defense to make various items of equipment available to local law enforcement.- “Shedding Light”. Defense Logistics Agency. Retrieved 2018-02-21.

As of 2014, 8,000 local law enforcement agencies participated in the program that has transferred $5.1 billion in military material from the Department of Defense to law enforcement agencies since 1997.[Poynton, Aaron. “Military & Civilian Resources: Doing More With Less” (PDF)] According to the Defense Logistics Agency, material worth $449 million was transferred in 2013 alone. Some of the most commonly requested items include ammunition, cold weather clothing, sand bags, medical supplies, sleeping bags, flashlights and electrical wiring. Small arms and vehicles such as aircraft, watercraft and armored vehicles have also been obtained.

The program has been criticized over the years by local media, by the Office of the Inspector General, U.S. Department of Defense in 2003, and by the GAO which found waste, fraud and abuse. It was not until media coverage of police during August 2014 Ferguson unrest that the program drew nationwide public attention; the Ferguson Police Department had equipment obtained through the 1033 program.[https://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2014/08/13/ferguson-police-michael-brown-militarization-column/14006383/]

President Obama signed Executive Order 13688 on May 2015 limiting and prohibiting certain types of equipment.[https://www.bja.gov/publications/LEEWG_Report_Final.pdf][Korte, Gregory (18 May 2015). “Obama bans some military equipment sales to police”. USA Today. Retrieved 28 August 2017.]

On 28 August 2017 President Trump rolled back Obama’s Executive Order.[Johnson, Kevin (28 August 2017). “Trump expected to lift ban on military gear to local police forces”. USA Today. Retrieved 28 August 2017.] The ACLU and the NAACP have raised concerns about they call the militarization of police forces in the US. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the move early Monday morning of that week at the Fraternal Order of Police convention in Nashville, and said the president would do so by executive order.[Jackman, Tom (2017-08-27). “Trump to restore program sending surplus military weapons, equipment to police”. Washington Post. ISSN 0190-8286. Retrieved 2018-03-22.] At the same time, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the director of the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) pointed out the use of 1033 equipment as life saving devices seeing restrictions on distributing military surplus to police as “too far.” The FOP also pointed out that the armored vehicles weren’t tanks.

These weapons being issued to the Central Texas Sheriff’s offices are very likely remnants of their duties along side the Secret Service during President Bush’s tenure, since their acquisition date was January 5th, 2007, as George W. Bush used the Waco Airport as a storage hanger for two Air Force One planes for transport to and from his Prairie Chapel Ranch in Crawford, Tx to Washington, D.C.

Prairie Chapel Ranch is a 1,583-acre ranch in unincorporated McLennan County, Texas, located 7 miles northwest of Crawford. The property was acquired by George W. Bush in 1999 and was known as the Western White House during his presidency.

Some of the most important questions of May 17th, 2015 that will never be answered in a court of law, are:

  • “Who was the highest ranking officer, and what agency are they formally assigned too, at the time of the first round fired at approximately 12:22 on May 17th, 2015?”
  • “What was the Standard Operating Procedure for each agency on May 17th, 2015, and was there a written SOP from training?”
  • “What about Situation Reports in writing in any form, perhaps a white board from training, or the rear of the S.W.A.T. Bread Truck, maybe even field notes from personal note pads from each officer?”
  • “How many Law Enforcement Officers fired their weapons from all of the 8 agencies on scene from 11:00am to 1:00pm on May 17th, 2015?”
  • Don Carlos Audio and Video
    Don Carlos Audio and Video

    “Where is the Don Carlos audio, as well as the other security cameras videos from both the Don Carlos patio and the outside drive way pointing at the far entrance shared by Twin Peaks and Don Carlos closest to I-35? And is that piece of evidence considered Brady evidence that the District Attorneys office failed to disclose to the defense?”

  • “At what exact time did the Waco Police Department, McLennan County Sheriff’s office, Texas Department of Public Safety and supposedly no other agency, set up for the 1:00pm event at Twin Peaks, Don Carlos, Logan’s Roadhouse Steakhouse and Central Texas Marketplace parking lot?”

Below we see which agencies were positioned in or around the Central Texas Marketplace on May 17th, 2015 with enough warning, and training to hold a sniper position at Twin Peaks:

The question of whether or not there were “snipers” in place in the Central Texas Market Place on May 17th, 2015 will likely only be answered with a complete list of weapons issued w/ ammo count, to any person on the premises in a Law Enforcement capacity, as well as personal weapons w/ ammo count so that forensic ballistics could happen immediately. Which never happened, nor likely ever will happen.

What we do know is that there were several different types of officers, trained in SWAT team operations, conducting an operation that was trained for in advance – to use potential deadly force if necessary – on American civilians in a parking lot, in broad daylight, during Sunday Church Lunch Rush Hour.

This was an obvious military style operation, with military grade equipment, using military trained soldiers, turned police men; targeting a political meeting, which was being held by Motorcycle Club members from all over Texas.

Who trained the local police force, local Sheriff’s Department members, Texas Department of Safety members, and Texas Alcohol Beverage Commission on this event?

What was the highest ranking Law Enforcement agency at Twin Peaks, and at what time frames, starting at 7am on the morning of May 17th, 2015?

Which Federal entity, both facilitated the weapons used against the bikers the day of Twin Peaks Ambush, as well as funded the training of the officers involved, at least the sponsorship of the organization conducting the training?

Awards Funding BJA for Steve Cook in 2000

The Bureau of Justice Assistance is how the weapons got in state level law enforcement’s hands, and they also sponsored the Steve Cook training class in April 2015 at MCC on how to conduct an ambush on several Motorcycle Club members in May of 2015. Although ticket prices for the event were $300 a plate, the email did not go into details as to what that plate covered. Steve Cook the movie star is an expensive date.

What is there to do with all of this information at this juncture?

  • The Grand Jury has already cleared the officers involved in the shooting from any wrong doing in McLennan County Courts.
  • One biker has already been to trial for Organized Crime and was found Not Guilty with a hung jury decision in McLennn County for their participation in the C.o.C.& I. meeting that took place at Twin Peaks on May 17th, 2015.
    In this trial there was Exculpatory Evidence with held by the former prosecutions office, which was also discovery evidence and very important in Tarrant County cases against the Bandidos MC.
  • Disclosing the Brady Violations, to the team of defense attorneys now, who are still representing clients charged with crimes from these offenses, in a public venue, with full transparency and determination to correct the errors made thus far, would be the only way forward for protection against future libel actions with more Morton Violations soon to follow if the evidence is not disclosed.
  • Showing the Guilt of a crime committed by any one biker, (when the Law Enforcement Officers that were involved, set a trap to promote crime, violence or the use of deadly force,) will be hard to prove to a jury in any new trials going forward, which is a huge personal liability claim against every single member of the agencies involved in the training to “entrap” civilians.
    Public Servants are allowed to object to an order given, and trained in steps to avoid dangerous situations for civilians. There is NO excuse for any tax paid public servant to follow an order to do harm to another human followed by training in which to do so, and also have no plan to de-escalate the situation.
  • Creating the Nexus between “Operation Texas Rocker” and the current Federal prosecution(s) of the former leadership of the Bandidos MC would allow for a solid defense for those prosecuted to include all cases against the Bandido Nation in any jurisdiction within the United States.
    Tying Waco in with these cases is easy to do with one person, who was present at Twin Peaks, and Gators Jam Inn or very close proximity, and also has a CLEAT attorney.
    Tarrant, Ellis, Limestone, McLennan, Bell, and surrounding counties cases can all be used in defense in the Federal cases, as well as Twin Peaks charges, and the Anderson threat, from Miss Boggess, would show obstruction of justice if not allowed. There will likely be one name that stands out among each documents signature for warrants.

  • Fusion Center Data would be attainable for use in defense against all past and future cases, and the methods of acquiring said data, which would turn into a 1983 Civil suit, when evidence shows illegal methods of collecting data, and this would set the dominoes falling down around the over zealous federal prosecutors in California.
  • Molecular testing of any evidence involved against the Bandidos MC in the United States would be required. Eliminating the chance that the substances did NOT first come from BATFE and DEA churn investigations from around the country would be essential in forming a solid defense to the false accusations against Motorcycle Club Members Nationwide.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) is responsible for the investigation and prevention of federal offenses involving the unlawful use, manufacture, and possession of firearms and explosives, acts of arson and bombings, and illegal trafficking of alcohol and tobacco products. In conducting its undercover operations, ATF may participate in transactions that are normally prohibited by federal law. In most of these illicit transactions, ATF uses appropriated funds to make any purchases and deposits any proceeds into the Department of the Treasury’s General Fund.
However, in 2004, ATF was granted the same authority previously provided to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to use proceeds generated from these undercover operations to offset necessary and reasonable operational expenses related to the same operations. ATF refers to this authority as “churning authority,” and to cases that use such authority as “churning investigations.” To date, the ATF has used this authority only to investigate tobacco diversion, which involves efforts to evade state, local, or federal tobacco taxes.
The Office of the Inspector General (OIG) conducted this audit to determine whether ATF: (1) properly authorized income-generating undercover operations (churning investigations); and (2) provided adequate management and oversight of its churning investigations.1 Our audit included a review of 20 of the 36 churning investigations conducted by ATF between February 2006 and June 2011 that generated total reported revenues of nearly $162 million. – AUDIT OF THE BUREAU OF ALCOHOL, TOBACCO, FIREARMS

    • If you were involved in the Waco Twin Peaks Ambush, and you have a civil attorney for 1983 claims, please discuss the above information provided with them concerning the potential, personal liability, against the officers involved for deadly use of force.

They had the opportunity to refuse any unlawful order.

    • Who instructed the officers involved that deadly use of force was necessary against those gathering in the Twin Peaks parking lot?
    • Were there any standing orders to allow a fight to happen between the two clubs, and to only return fire if fired upon, or was it when they hear shots fired?
    • What was the Rules of Engagement for when deadly use of force would occur?

“Federal law enforcement components used more than 16,000 confidential informants in fiscal year 2013 as part of criminal investigations. Informants can be critical to an investigation, but without appropriate oversight, problems can occur that undermine the credibility of the informant’s role in an investigation. The Attorney General’s Guidelines sets forth procedures on the management of informants, including vetting potential informants and overseeing informants’ illegal activities that components authorize to support an investigation.”

Best of Luck to everyone involved who is innocent and had no idea that the LEO of the situation would be involved or a part of the trap, on both sides of the parking lot.
The next chapter will be focused on a solution plan to the events that have taken place.

Being true to the pattern of training, most operations will have some form of guidelines, some rules of engagement at the minimum. There have been several Federal programs that have launched heavily funded infiltration tactics on different social, racial, and political groups since domestic intelligence gathering began with J Edger Hoover, the head of the F.B.I. in the 50’s, when they surveilled the general populace looking for Russian spies, and soviet sympathizers. That was their guise anyway.

“Centralized operations under COINTELPRO officially began in August 1956 with a program designed to “increase factionalism, cause disruption and win defections” inside the Communist Party U.S.A. (CPUSA). Tactics included anonymous phone calls, IRS audits, and the creation of documents that would divide the American communist organization internally.[11] An October 1956 memo from Hoover reclassified the FBI’s ongoing surveillance of black leaders, including it within COINTELPRO, with the justification that the movement was infiltrated by communists.[12] In 1956, Hoover sent an open letter denouncing Dr. T.R.M. Howard, a civil rights leader, surgeon, and wealthy entrepreneur in Mississippi who had criticized FBI inaction in solving recent murders of George W. Lee, Emmett Till, and other blacks in the South.[13] When the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC), an African-American civil rights organization, was founded in 1957, the FBI began to monitor and target the group almost immediately, focusing particularly on Bayard Rustin, Stanley Levison, and, eventually, Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.[14]”

Fast forward almost 70 years into the future and there is not only a vast Military Industrial Complex of private companies biding for government contracts to build war machines for air, land and sea. There are also DoD, DIA, and DoJ contracts going towards private companies that build electronic systems that will capture, retrieve, store, copy, clone, image, duplicate, filter and process any person’s data who is on or offline.

The largest of these firms collecting ALL of our data, used to employ the now famous Edward Snowden, who was brave enough to inform the population of the facts of their actions, leading to his political exile, currently in Russia.

One of the most common unlawful methods of electronic data from a group at any location, static or mobile, is the Stingray fake cell tower, made by Harris. This method has been utilized for about 20 years in the United States in different forms but the latest design has made it affordable and accessible to use in large cities with war protestors, rights activists and overall government defectors.

“It seems that the devices are often sold in packages, like the StingRay II (a more powerful, updated version of your typical StingRay) Vehicular System. This comes with equipment for operating a StingRay from a patrol vehicle and three different kinds of Harris’ Harpoon signal amplifiers. A laptop, three kinds of software for accessing different types of cellular networks, and an AmberJack cellphone tracker are also included for a grand total of $148,000. ” – Here’s How Much a StingRay Cell Phone Surveillance Tool Costs

The most common way to capture the data from a person’s life is to make the average online experience a social one, make it free, easy to use, and popular, and the average person will provide their most intimate details with the world through selfies and descriptions there of.

“At Facebook, we have unique storage scalability challenges when it comes to our data warehouse. Our warehouse stores upwards of 300 PB of Hive data, with an incoming daily rate of about 600 TB. In the last year, the warehouse has seen a 3x growth in the amount of data stored. Given this growth trajectory, storage efficiency is and will continue to be a focus for our warehouse infrastructure.” – April 10, 2014 – Scaling the Facebook data warehouse to 300 PB

In the after math of the Twin Peaks Ambush, there is a federal operation in place that specifically reaches into the social network lives of bikers and those who support them. This effort is focusing in on the “protestors,” and the way in which the entire motorcycle community was going to protest or react to this “ambush on a political meeting,” as well as find connections to “would be persons of interest”  that would be necessary to try and prosecute the political entity target.

This evidence would be necessary when prosecuting a large organization such as an MC. The investigation is lead by the Department of Homeland Security, and although the name of the operation is not yet known, the existence has been experienced first hand.

The main organizer of this information is a Mesquite, Texas fireman, and trained DHS agent. James Baldwin, or “Jim” as he asks to be called, rallied several family members who were effected by the Twin Peaks tragedy and placed them in “chat rooms” and closed pages on social media to discuss the events of the day, as well as the lead up to the event. Baldwin worked closely with or for, the Looney & Conrad Law firm with weekly reports of intelligence gathered from online sources.

Interesting enough after James Baldwin read his name in this chapter, he called out the author by name, seemingly upset. Danielle Luther was sure to post DHS Agent Baldwin’s words to the One Nation Under Arrest facebook page. Danielle Bundy Luther, Richard “Lexx” Luther’s supposed wife, text Lexx on May 17, 2015 that she was “going to ride with Sassy to Waco to pick up Bill.” Presumably William Flowers (AKA Bill, Billy, Cossack Stone Cold). It was William Flowers who invited Richard Luther and his riders to Twin Peaks, not a member of the Red and Gold MC. Very vocal group of people. Flowers’ interview with FBI Agent Skillstead revealed that of the 1,300 Cossacks in Texas, 20 of the riders are known Law Enforcement Officers from “Ft. Worth Police Department to Harris County S.W.A.T.”
For those of you who have yet to read the About the Author section of this book, here is the authors information. As a disabled Veteran, garnering a “federal” paycheck for disabilities acquired during service, Agent Baldwin is half correct in his assumption that the author is federally connected to anything in this tragedy, however he is absolutely lying about his (Agent Baldwin’s) role in the aftermath of Twin Peaks. It was Agent Baldwin who introduced Rich Luther to the author, and it was Agent Baldwin who tried to get the author to provide $40,000 worth of plant material to Lexx in December of 2015 whilst in Colorado. Agent Baldwin used the “colorblind” line often when defending the Cossacks actions before and after Twin Peaks. Yet he was adamant that NO R&G were added to the closed room group. Baldwin gave Admin status to the author when Baldwin’s relationship with Roxanne Avery was being questioned by her boss and sometimes boyfriend, Paul Looney, as well as her husband.

The sway of the conversation and domination there of, after the fact, was necessary for all of the federal organizations involved that needed a slight of hand to magically disappear from the conversation and be void from the average protestors mouth and of course, not appear in any news media, local or national.

The Federal Communications Commission would never allow their enforcement branches to look bad in public. So the task of cleaning up a huge train wreck of an undercover operation was left to the “local yocals” to figure out, yet with the help of the press, and the Department of Justice, it would be possible.

“Sink Swanton” was a talking point in the protests, instead of “Arrest McCraw.” Keep the conversation local in focus, which deserves as much attention as it can get, but the protestors barely mentioned larger entities such as the DoJ, DoD, DIA, NCC, DHS, DEA, FBI, BATFE, TABC, Texas Parks and Wildlife or DPS, all of whom where present in some form or fashion on May 17th, 2015.

Almost pointless to say, but “no one blamed the FCC for airing such blatant lies during the coverage of the tragic event and the horrific aftermath.” For the last 6 months of 2015, the focus on the tragedy was on two attorney’s strategies for the defense of less than a dozen victims, and even a few aggressors in the situation.

NOTE: Both of those outspoken attorneys were representing both sides of the tragedy:
Clint Broden represents the Scmimtars, lead by a former Son’s of the South biker, which would make him a former C.o.C. & I. Member, Matthew Clendennan. Broden also represents a C.o.C. & I. biker from the Dallas area, both of his clients were indicted, Clendennan was indicted for a second time on August 16th, 2017.

Paul Looney, from Houston, was representing two bikers who were not indicted from the C.o.C. & I. as well as a Cossack who was indicted twice. This Cossack gave a graphic fictional story to the press about how his step-dad was murdered in front of him by members of the C.o.C. & I.. Cossack Cody Ledbetter, not to be confused with DPS Sgt. Cory Ledbetter, opened up to the public for sympathy when he gave a first hand account how his step-dad was murdered point blank. Latter ballistics would show that the bullets that entered Boyett’s skull were from Law Enforcement automatic weapons, one bullet likely from WPD S.W.A.T. Michael Bucher and one bullet from one of the two DPS agents shooting from Don Carlos patio, likely DPS Sgt. Cory Ledbetter. Ironic?

How Paul Looney was able to garner a stage at C.o.C.&I. events speaking to the audience about what they should do in protest, was the spark to write this novel of information. Within 60 days of his stage appearance in Austin, he was in the Waco courthouse laying waste to the big bad bandits on record. Smooth move ABA, DoJ, DPS, very clever.

Q: How does the legal system continue to rule and control the general population?

Analogy: Suppose we flipped a coin to decide who gets to spend tax dollars. Two possible outcomes if one party chose heads, while the other got tails. One outcome is only possible if in reality both parties were answering to a larger group who owns the actions of either group. In this analogy the larger group who owns both parties actions is the Department of Justice controlled by the American Bar Association. Any wonder why FBI agents have to pass and maintain a passing grade on a BAR exam each year to maintain their agent status?

If patterns are to be noticed the narrative would be: “Make sure the media will only pay attention to local court procedures that will never be fruitful, all the while the Department of Justice continues on with mission as planned.” With a likely mission statement directed to DHS as: “Observe and report all interactions between clubs and those supporting them.”

The following excerpt is from an insightful whitepaper written for the Pew Foundation, and the New American Century, (think tanks for lobbyists and large corporations, such as ammunition manufacturers, prison construction companies, the prison industry, and the military industrial complex as a whole.) The following extended quote might have been used as guidelines on how to instigate, rather than deconfliction as the author intended.
The focus is on a series of Federal Investigations into “patriot type” movements from the 80’s until around 2005, namely Operation PATCON. The 1993 time frame is important to note during the timeline of events when the first Waco tragedy took place where the same entities above collided right outside of town near Mt. Carmel, Texas. The entire 40+ pages is worth the time to read as it mentions federal agencies not knowing each other had undercover agents or high level informants in certain positions and they fed each other crime and blamed it on the groups they were surveilling. If history repeats itself, then the B.A.T.F.E. will show up in the center of the Twin Peaks Ambush, and too bad for the victims, the B.A.T.F.E. is who is in charge of ballistics.

Recommendations

“The PATCON case study points to the need to gather more data on the secondary effects of infiltration and to manage the use of this tool more responsibly. Areas for further study and additional government disclosure include:
An independent examination of the FBI’s statistical scoring system for evaluating field office performance, with an eye toward measuring how the frequency of use of extraordinary tools such as Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants and undercover operations compares to the frequency of prosecutions resulting from such investigations.

This should not be seen as marshaling evidence against the use of extraordinary tools, but the number of completed prosecutions is a valid and useful data point in this discussion. The statistical scoring system should also be evaluated as to whether it creates artificial pressure to use infiltration and other extraordinary techniques apart from a legitimate investigative interest. A quantitative study of the long-term use by federal agencies of confidential sources (informants) and undercover operations that have been publicly disclosed.

This study should identify useful data for comparison and analysis, such as the length of infiltration, the number of agents and informants per target, the number of targets covered by each agent and informant, the tactics used to infiltrate, conviction rates, and judicial rulings on the admissibility of informant and undercover testimony. The study should also define and quantify the types of confidential sources used, since these can range from a one-time report of suspected misdoings to extended surveillance by paid informants.

Use of the Freedom of Information Act to create additional detailed case studies of historical infiltration operations that have not been fully and publicly disclosed, with special attention to violent extremism cases with significant risk of alienating or radicalizing feedback in targeted communities.

Detailed polling and focus groups to collect data on how infiltration is perceived in both targeted communities and control groups, with an eye toward understanding the secondary effects of infiltration and how they affect public trust in government and willingness to cooperate with law enforcement. Case studies on the use of informants and undercover operations by local law enforcement agencies in different jurisdictions, where many of the same issues apply. Compare and contrast these examples with federal programs.

Additional study should proceed with a clear understanding that infiltration is an important tool for law enforcement, but one that poses unique challenges in direct proportion to its unique capabilities. Such study should be undertaken by strictly neutral parties rather than advocates, since the volume and nature of the data make it easy to selectively mine information in support of a per-determined conclusion. The extreme complexity and political volatility of the issues that arise from infiltration programs create an unusually high risk of such confirmation bias.” – J.M. Berger, May 2012 National Security Studies Program Policy Paper – PATCON – The FBI’s Secret War Against the ‘Patriot’ Movement, and How Infiltration Tactics Relate to Radicalizing Influences

“We have investigated ourselves and found that we have done nothing wrong, and we need more money. “ Texas Department of Public Safety Public Information Officer Tom Vigner, March 2015.

This satire quote by the author can easily explain much of what took place in the investigation that would happen in May regarding the DPS involvement of their infiltration of the C.o.C.&I. meeting at Twin Peaks. April of 2015 just so happens to be when DPS became in charge of investigating public corruption in Texas (including Law Enforcement), instead of the special commission formed through the District Attorney’s office of Travis County.

“In 2013, she was arrested for and pleaded guilty to drunk driving. She was sentenced to forty-five days in jail.[5] According to Lehmberg’s lawyer, David Sheppard, Lehmberg’s sentence was “without doubt the harshest sentence anyone has ever received for first time DWI” in Travis County.[6] Video of her detainment and extremely inebriated and aggressive behavior was released to the public. Governor Rick Perry demanded Lehmberg’s resignation, and stated that if she did not step down, he would use his line-item veto power to cut all funding to the Public Accountability Office which is under Lehmberg’s authority. Lehmberg refused, and Governor Perry vetoed the office’s funding. Perry was indicted for this action but was later cleared of all charges.”

She had a logical case against Perry, and the state of Texas would have been in for a rude awakening from the evidence, but her infraction got more publicity than his. FCC strikes again.

Texans almost got hope for a reprieve from this police state abuse in 2017, but funding was never appropriated for a renewed Public Integrity Unit by the District Attorneys office of Travis County.

“Now under new management, the Travis County district attorney’s office is trying to restore some muscle to its Public Integrity Unit after a Republican backlash led to deep funding cuts and limitations on the unit’s duties.

Under District Attorney Margaret Moore, who took office in January, negotiations with Gov. Greg Abbott’s office and key lawmakers paid off when the proposed House budget, introduced earlier this year, set aside $4.8 million for the unit.

But the budget approved this week by the Senate included no money for the Travis County division, raising doubts about plans to beef up the unit’s investigations and prosecution of insurance scams and fraud committed against state agencies or by state employees.” – Travis County eyes restored Public Integrity Unit

Has anyone taken the time to question how any leadership in government, or even media themselves can claim any news source is “Fake News?” They are all governed by the same Federal Communications Commission, and the broadcasting company airing the fake words would have their license revoked for broadcast if the government did not want it stated. Enter “free speech” and you have an interesting coin that is presented to the audience en masse.
