The tragic ends of the CIA’s madams

Many readers may be familiar with the late “DC Madam” Deborah Jeane Palfrey, who reportedly committed “suicide” in 2008 prior to her revealing more details about her top flight clientele, which ranged from Vice President Dick Cheney to top officials of the Central Intelligence Agency. Most have likely never heard of Heide Rikan. Continue reading

U.S. Supreme Court rules 8-1 that citizens have no protection against Fourth Amendment violations by police officers ignorant of the law

WASHINGTON, D.C.—In a blow to the constitutional rights of citizens, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 8-1 in Heien v. State of North Carolina that police officers are permitted to violate American citizens’ Fourth Amendment rights if the violation results from a “reasonable” mistake about the law on the part of police. Acting contrary to the venerable principle that “ignorance of the law is no excuse,” the Court ruled that evidence obtained by police during a traffic stop that was not legally justified can be used to prosecute the person if police were reasonably mistaken that the person had violated the law.

Obama: America “exceptional” so we don’t prosecute torturers

In his first official remarks following Tuesday’s release of the Senate Intelligence Committee’s report on the torture program conducted by the CIA during the presidency of George W. Bush, President Barack Obama on Tuesday night indicated that the abuses detailed in the report conducted in the name of the American people—described as “horrific,” “ruthless” and “much more brutal than previously thought”—should not be followed by further inquiries or prosecutions as many have long urged.

The CIA-French Gladio plot to kill Eisenhower and Khrushchev

WMR has discovered buried deep within the Central Intelligence Agency’s declassified archives a file on a proposed operation to be carried out by the CIA under Allen Dulles and right-wing members of France’s Gladio “stay behind” network. The operation was to assassinate President Dwight D. Eisenhower and Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev and bring about an all-out war between the two nations. Continue reading

Obama’s CT scan has Washington buzzing

(WMR)—President Obama’s two medical examinations, both on December 6, has Washington buzzing. Any time the president of the United States has so much as a cold, speculation begins flying about the state of the president’s health. Obama has been suffering from a persistent sore throat and he was examined at the White House in the morning by an ear, nose, and throat specialist from the Fort Belvoir Medical Center. The Fort Belvoir doctor used a fiber optic endoscope to examine Obama’s throat. Continue reading

Most ‘transparent’ administration in history will be more opaque for next two years

(WMR)—President Obama billed his administration as the “most transparent” in the history of the United States. After six years, the Obama White House has become a micro-managing executive and, according to Washington insiders, is about to become even more secretive. Continue reading

Qatar is the oasis where neocons and Jihadists find comfort

(WMR)—America’s Middle East version of NATO, the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), which will become the GCC Plus if Jordan, Egypt, and Morocco join, is quietly celebrating the return of the Saudi, UAE, and Bahraini ambassadors to Qatar after a diplomatic row triggered by Qatar’s support for the Muslim Brotherhood. Apparently, the 34-year old Emir of Qatar, Tamim bin Hamad al Thani, who succeeded to the throne after the 2013 abdication of his father, Hamad bin Khalifa al Thani, agreed to limit the activities of the Muslim Brotherhood in Qatar. Continue reading

Wayne Madsen Report editor on the TSA’s SSSS list

The first clue that something was amiss before my early morning flight to DC National Airport from Tampa was the fact that I could not collect my boarding pass from the airport check-in kiosk. I was also curious that I didn’t receive the typical pre-boarding email from JetBlue. Continue reading

Jeb Bush and the crimes of Brickell Avenue

(WMR)—Prospective 2016 GOP presidential contender Jeb Bush has always felt more at home in the glass towers along the shores of Biscayne Bay in downtown Miami than he has in the Governor’s Mansion in Tallahassee or the White House during his father’s and brother’s administrations. That is because Jeb, in his youthful days as a “businessman,” cut his political teeth in behind-the scenes CIA drug smuggling, savings and loan rip-offs, and covert Central American wars. Continue reading

Confusion inside Foggy Bottom and Pentagon

(WMR)—The abrupt firing of Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel after he clashed with national security adviser Susan Rice over an incoherent policy on Syria has spread confusion over U.S. Middle East policy from the Pentagon into the State Department. Continue reading

How the U.S. Dept. of Justice makes murder respectable, kills the innocent & jails their defenders

Political language can be used, George Orwell said in 1946, “to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.” Continue reading

The low-down on Wasserman-Schultz

(WMR)—A number of residents of Representative Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’s 23rd congressional district in Florida are surprised that she still has her job as chair of the Democratic National Committee, especially considering the drubbing the party took at the polls on Election Day. However, given her cult-like following among her fellow New York Jewish transplants who largely make up the electorate in the densely-populated strip from Miami Beach to Fort Lauderdale, her political currency, not to mention her survivability as DNC chairwoman, come as no surprise. Continue reading

Obama extends war in Afghanistan

News agencies reported Saturday morning that weeks ago President Obama signed an order, kept secret until now, to authorize continuation of the Afghan war for at least another year. The order authorizes U.S. airstrikes “to support Afghan military operations in the country” and U.S. ground troops to continue normal operations, which is to say, to “occasionally accompany Afghan troops” on operations against the Taliban.

Was the Atta team in Florida a group of poseurs?

(WMR)—HOLLYWOOD, Fla—WMR has sought out and spoken to the few Hollywood residents who distinctly recall how their town became a focal point for the post-9/11 investigation by the FBI of the activities of “lead hijacker” Mohammed Atta and at least three of his compatriots. One very politically-connected resident voices his belief that given the modus operandi of Atta and his team of going out of their way to bring attention to themselves that the purported future hijackers may have been plants.

9/11 cleared way for e-exchange and NYSE layoffs

(WMR)—WMR has learned from survivors of the 9/11 attack that the recent opening of the 104-story One World Trade Center in New York completes a project long sought by Wall Street tycoons to lay-off New York Stock Exchange traders and create an electronic stock exchange. It was not merely the asbestos problem that plagued the former World Trade Center buildings, brought down on September 11, 2001, but the need to replace the antiquated New York Stock Exchange trading floor with the Archipelago Exchange or NYSE Arca, which links the NYSE’s electronic exchange via a high-speed optical fiber link to Chicago.

GOP consulting with 1998/99 impeachment managers

(WMR)—Some members of the incoming GOP-controlled House of Representatives and Senate are seriously considering impeaching President Obama. And they don’t believe they will face any adverse political consequences since one of the original House impeachment managers in the 1999 Senate trial of President Bill Clinton, Asa Hutchinson, is about to be sworn in as governor of Arkansas, Clinton’s home state. Continue reading

Building a new North American partnership for the future

The globalist controlled Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) have called on the U.S. to work more closely with Canada and Mexico to build a new North American partnership for the future. The pivot to North America would focus on greater trilateral cooperation in areas such as energy, economic competitiveness, border management, law enforcement and continental perimeter security. Throughout the years, the incremental steps towards a North American Union have been used to further chip away at the sovereignty of all three NAFTA countries. Continue reading

How the I.R.S. abuses criminal law to steal money from innocent Americans

(TheAntiMedia)—Over the weekend, the New York Times revealed that the Internal Revenue Service has been abusing a civil assets forfeiture law intended to target drug traffickers, racketeers, and terrorists. Instead of catching “evil-doers,” it more commonly uses these policies to confiscate money from innocent people without ever charging them with a crime. Continue reading

Indiana sex slayings highlight society’s ‘throwaway women’

CHICAGO—At least seven women’s bodies have been found in Indiana within a few days in what appear to be serial, sex-related murders of women in high-risk lifestyles.

ISIL seen as non-Islamic cult by Mideast intelligence services

(WMR)—Middle Eastern intelligence services have reported to WMR that they believe that the so-called “Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant,” or ISIL, also known as “Islamic State” and “Islamic State of Iraq and Sham,” is actually a quite non-Islamic cult developed by Israel and the Central Intelligence Agency and funded by Saudi Arabia and Qatar to destabilize the entire Middle East and beyond.

What is wrong with Gareth Porter—an interview

A few days ago, I came across a disturbing article on Buzzfeed.

Challenging drone warfare in a U.S. court

On October 7, 2014, Kathy Kelly and Georgia Walker appeared before Judge Matt Whitworth in Jefferson City, MO, federal court on a charge of criminal trespass to a military facility.

Three secret domestic CIA bases with ties to 9/11

(WMR)—Anyone driving from Norfolk, Virginia to North Carolina’s Outer Banks would normally not notice that when driving south on Caritoke Highway through the one-horse town of Moyock, North Carolina, they would be passing a country road leading to one of the largest “private” paramilitary training centers in the world. If one were to take a right turn on Moyock’s Pudding Ridge Road, after a few miles, they would come up on the gate of the Academi “Elite Training and Trusted Protection” facility. Formerly known as Blackwater and Xe, Academi is nothing more than a privatized arm of the Central Intelligence Agency, which provided the company, throughout all of its incarnations, with sweetheart and lucrative contracts to engage in operations that the CIA wanted to keep free of its fingerprints.

More questions than answers in Brazilian plane crash

(WMR)—The August 13 crash of the Cessna 560XLS Citation aircraft, tail number PR-AFA, in Santos, Brazil, which killed pro-business Brazilian Socialist Party presidential candidate Eduardo Campos, his aides, and the crew, has raised more questions among Brazilian investigators and the general public. Since its introduction in 1996, the plane has enjoyed a perfect safety record. The sudden death of Campos upended the Brazilian presidential election campaign in a manner that may benefit the United States and the Central Intelligence Agency’s long-range agenda for Latin America.

Victim of Chicago killer John Gacy becomes anti-bullying activist

CHICAGO—About 45 people gathered on a hot August night at a Chicago LBGT community center to hear a chapter in Chicago history that is often forgotten—how John Gacy prowled the streets of Chicago’s northside from 1972 through 1978, picking up young men and murdering at least 33 of them. Gacy, one of the most vicious mass murderers in U.S. history, was found guilty of the murders, sentenced to death and executed by lethal injection at Stateville Correctional Center in Joliet, Illinois on May 10, 1994.
