The United States Of America, A Government Gone Wild
BY PASSIONATE PACHYDERMS
We, as Americans have all been shocked on at least a few occasions by headlines exposing government involvement in various things we believe to be outrageous, morally unacceptable, ridiculous, and against what we believe our government is authorized to be engaged in on our behalf.
Through the years there have been countless special investigations, Congressional inquiries and hearings about abuses of power and unacceptable actions or behaviors committed by elected officials as well as those employed by the government at various levels.
These Dog and Pony shows generally result in little more than a dirty look or two, three minutes of bad press, perhaps a strongly worded letter, or the most disturbing all, a slap on the wrist.
More often than not though, the headlines fade away, and the entire matter is swept under the rug and forgotten once the requisite 15 minutes of often staged outrage by appropriate elected officials ends, or some other breaking story takes center stage.
In the coming months, we will be releasing a series of articles to remind you of some of those issues, and inform you of others you may never have heard of or known about because they were done quietly under the surface, away from public eye, or when we’ve been deliberately distracted by what we’ve come to know as, 4 a.m. talking points. Talking points fed to key members of media by individuals within our government who are paid to tell the media what to say, and how to say it, using key phrases, buzz words, and dog whistles which sway public opinion, manipulate public thought. feelings and response.
These 4 a.m. talking points are designed to tell us only what and how much “they” want us to know. They manipulate public opinion in one direction or another, deliberately distracting us from things they really would rather we didn’t find out about, or want us to discover.
If this is the first time you’re hearing about the medias 4 a.m. talking points, I suggest Googling, “Project Mockingbird”.
We will show a clear pattern of actions taken by those in government, of deeds they’ve knowingly engaged in that resulted in serious physical and mental illness, injury, harm, and death of American citizens over the years.
Acts and Deeds that were perpetrated without the consent or knowledge of those American citizens victimized. Deeds that when uncovered, were lied about, down played, and hidden to lessen culpability and financial responsibility for the ensuing damage done to the lives of in some cases, potentially millions of unwitting Americans who, until recently believed with every fiber of their being, that the government of the United States of America would NEVER engage in.
Actions and deeds so incredibly vile, dangerous, and outrageous that once they are brought to the surface, you will quickly come to understand why it is so critically imperative that each and every American citizen, regardless of political ideology, start demanding transparency, answers, and most importantly accountability for those involved at any level.
Not the fake hearings we currently see, which amount to little more than dog and pony shows, and sound bite opportunities for future elections. But REAL hearings. Hearings at which government agency heads, supposed “experts,” and witnesses are not permitted to skirt critical questions by talking nonsense until their time expires, are allowed to cry ignorance, or claim inability to immediately obtain needed answers or materials.
In this electronic age, with computers, lap tops, tablets, and cell phones which all permit us to access information remotely, or immediately contact someone who can gain access and forward it to us in minutes, there is no longer any legitimate reason why answers to questions can’t be obtained and delivered prior to the end of any hearing.
Individuals called to speak and testify in front of Congress MUST be held accountable for their answers. If they omit important pertinent information to escape culpability for their actions, the actions of others working on their behalf, under their orders, or supervision, if they commit perjury by manipulation of facts, fabricate information and present it as fact, or otherwise mislead members of Congress and the American people they must be held accountable with more than a meaningless Contempt of Congress charge or finding.
It is this very sort of irresponsible, reprehensible, and even criminal behavior engaged in by members we’ve elected to office, their subordinates, and the chosen individuals they’ve put in place, that many American Patriots have been attempting to drag into the light and hold accountable for their deeds.
To be clear, the guilty are both Republican and Democrat, most of whom have become enriched by their terms in office. How exactly does one become a multi millionaire on a public servants salary, while maintaining homes in both Washington D.C. and the location of their constituencies? We’ve all asked that question on more than one occasion. Perhaps this article will help answer it.
We invite those who have comments or information they would like to contribute to this series to do so. We are after all, in this together, and together we must stay if we are to be the wind of change needed to blow hard enough to stop this corrupt, unacceptable, illegal, immoral, and treacherous pattern of behaviors from continuing. Remember, WHAT WE ALLOW, WILL CONTINUE. AND IT WILL GET WORSE!
During the course of one of my all too frequent sleepless nights recently, just as my ADHD brain slipped into overdrive, it occurred to me that it’s time to end my 9 month main stream media blackout, my near total social media boycott, and come roaring back.
It’s time for for ALL of us to BREAK THE SILENCE and MAKE A ROAR THEY CAN’T IGNORE!
As the founder and leader of Passionate Pachyderms, the largest herd of politically active advocates and activists proud to be known as “The Elephants In Every Room,” I’m happy to lead the way starting with compiling and maintaining a growing list of just exactly what it is we’re fighting for or against as the case may be.
What I begin with here is by no means all inclusive as I’m absolutely certain I’ve only scratched the surface. That said, I invite all those reading this to join with me in this effort by posting your comments, and examples, as well as additions to the list! I implore each of you to share this and future articles on ALL of your social media platforms, and strongly urge others to do so as well.
Remember, the more we collectively shine our lights on not only the creatures within the swamp, but their actions, their motives, and the manner in which they get away with what they do, the louder our voices become. The louder we become, the more attention will be drawn to all of it. The more attention it gets, the harder it will be for them to continue doing it, and for Main Stream Media to continue ignoring it!
GOVERNMENT GONE WILD
DISCLAIMER: This section by no means is limited or restricted to the actions and events of the current administration. Rather, it shines a bright light on things that transcend election cycles and presidential administrations.
Our country did not become filthy with corruption over night. The actions of these Government agencies and individuals working within them didn’t become illegal, immoral, corrupt, unconstitutional, and down right DIRTY overnight either.
It’s been allowed to happen over decades in which we failed to hold them accountable for their actions, made excuses for dirty deeds, and turned blind eyes to the unspeakable horrors being committed against our own citizens because we were brainwashed into believing OUR GOVERNMENT was better than that. That ours was a government with morals, values, and integrity, a government and country blessed by God, and committed to doing what was right in all matters.
We fell asleep on the job. Once we did, the free for all began, and it hasn’t stopped since.
We allowed it all to happen, as did our parents, and theirs. I’m sorry to be the one to have to say it out loud, but sadly it’s true, and now that we’ve been awakened, it’s up to us to stop it, fix it, and do everything in our considerable power to make certain it is never allowed to happen again.
A. The Center For Disease Control, (CDC) has repeatedly engaged in the fabrication, manipulation, and dissemination of data in order to influence and convince the American public of desired false narratives, manipulate their thinking, beliefs, and response, as well as acceptance of health related issues which are, or may become detrimental to our physical well being. These issues include;
1. The completely inaccurate, false and misleading information regarding the appropriate, effective treatment of pain with opiate pain medications.
2. The baseless, incorrect, misleading CDC and government narrative that America’s growing illegal drug use/abuse problem was created and made worse by our physicians and other licensed medical professionals who, habitually engaged in excessively prescribing controlled substances including but not limited to; opiate based, and synthetic pain medications, benzodiazepines, and amphetamines. Further, that physicians and other medical professionals failed to effectively prevent diversion and misuse of these legally prescribed medications by engaging in the act of adequately treating their patients moderate to severe acute and long term pain.
CDC knew these and similar narratives were false, and that the growing drug overdose and death rates were/are caused almost exclusively by growing use of illegally manufactured fentanyl, and increasing heroin use. (Heroin which has increasingly become laced with illicit Fentanyl.) These illegal drugs are often used together with a plethora of other common street drugs, (many of which have also become tainted,) and alcohol.
CDC knew the information they were disseminating was false, they admitted to having manipulated the number of overdose deaths, but not before presenting the shockingly high numbers to the public in furtherance of their narrative. CDC then combined those with other inflated and manipulated statistics and used them to shock and frighten an aging American populous of baby boomers, police, and drug enforcement agencies, as well as state governments into believing doctors were to blame because they were writing more prescriptions for opiate based pain medications than ever before.
CDC conveniently failed to mention however, that as our population of baby boomers ages, they require more and more hip, knee, and other joint replacements, have more heart and other surgeries, they suffer more from painful degenerative diseases, debilitating arthritis, Cancers, osteoporosis, excruciating neuropathies, kidney disease, etc. They further failed to mention that we have been a country at war for 20+ years, and thus we have hundreds of thousands of American Veterans who have returned home with painful conditions and injuries related to those wars, who are also in need of opiate pain medications all contributing to those increased prescriptions being written and pain medications being dispensed.
Eventually the bogus CDC narratives were proven conclusively to have been false, but not before the damage was done, pain, palliative, and hospice patients were abandoned by their physicians, denied effective adequate pain control, suffered forced tapers reducing their needed doses of pain medications to ineffective levels, immediately plunging them into torturous lives of excruciating pain they can’t escape, and their physicians are too scared to treat effectively.
When patients could no longer obtain safe effective pain control from their doctors and pharmacies to be able to continue to function, provide for their families, and care for themselves, they began turning to the only place left where they could find relief, the streets.
This has resulted in skyrocketing street drug use, more overdoses, and deaths, in addition to, suicides due to non treatment, under treatment, and ineffective pain treatment, especially for those suffering legitimate incurable conditions and diseases causing constant excruciating constant long term pain.
3. Due entirely to the CDC’s illegitimate “guidelines” and their baseless claims of Dr.’s being to blame, brilliant, compassionate physicians have been arrested and thrown in prison for doing nothing more than caring for their patients painful conditions. There has been a massive decline in the treatment of acute and long term pain, to the point accident victims, cancer patients, wounded Veterans, surgical patients, including amputees and those having undergone total mastectomies are regularly being refused pain treatment.
4. CDC actions and their 2016 “guidelines” green lit massive over reach by the DEA and led to the entrapment practices regularly used against physicians to suspend or restrict their abilities to write prescriptions for the treatment of pain. These practices include DEA agents presenting fake medical records and diagnostic reports such as MRI’s CT scans and x-rays to physicians in addition to making false claims about their pain levels and physical condition, then when the physicians write a script for an opiate pain medication, arresting the physician for having done something wrong.
Raiding the offices of physicians, DEA agents and police running into full waiting rooms of Dr.’s offices waving massive guns, shouting orders, in full riot gear, as if they are taking down a terrorist cell. These practices are ridiculous, and meant to do nothing but intimidate and terrorize innocent people, most of whom are very ill and disabled with pain.
B. CDC’s mistreatment of COVID issues from beginning to end. Again manipulation of data, false reporting of numbers to scare the American public. Constant conflicting information, non disclosure of true dangerous side effects of vaccines and accurate numbers of individuals who have suffered those side effects so the American people can make informed choices based upon accurate information instead of lies, inflated fatality numbers, refusal to report the much more significant numbers of individuals suffering dangerous, often life threatening/ending effects from vaccines, telling people to wear two and three masks, restricting their ability to breathe properly and subjecting us to even more fatal infections and lung diseases from wearing these masks.
These are but a few examples from the CDC, there are too many to actually list.
C. Useless, untrustworthy, corrupt Department of Justice and FBI.
Good luck getting factual, accurate, honest answers from this Government office gone wild, illegal wire taps, falsifying info to get warrants, covering up and facilitating illegal activity by those within government, (just ask Hillary) hiding evidence of guilt and assisting in the continuation of illegal activity, failure to enforce the law unless it is advantageous to the DOJ or their “friends” or How about a DOJ that has nothing better to do than to attend and police local school board meetings, and choose who is allowed to speak, what they are allowed to say, and how they are allowed to say it? Yup that’s a thing too! Let us not forget a DOJ that not only is involved in planning and facilitating illegal activities, arresting and illegally imprisoning American citizens attending a peaceful protest in D.C. on January 6, 2021, who became unwitting participants in their plan, being held for over 15 months without charges, hearings, or adjudication of any sort? Oh and lets not forget a DOJ who, when presented with evidence of illegal activities committed by large numbers of individuals who tampered with election results, committed voter fraud, destroyed evidence of wide spread election fraud, opted not to investigate further, and dismissed it as not significant enough to pursue? Yup that is a thing too.
A congress who habitually exempts its self from having to follow the laws they make and insist the rest of us must follow. Little things like Insider trading, using information they are privy to because of their positions to enrich themselves at our expense, accepting favors, trips on private jets, vacations under the guise of “fact finding missions”, campaign contributions, goods and services from special interest groups and lobbyists with deep pockets cleverly disguised as things that won’t trigger investigations or wrong doing. Mortgages given at rates only they can get, major personal construction jobs done at little or no charge, establishing slush funds solely for the purpose of buying congressional members way out of trouble, ethics violations investigated and adjudicated by friends and subordinates within the same Congress, which almost never result in findings of guilt. How about voting themselves huge raises in pay, while reducing the number of days they must work each year. Always cutting funding for those American Citizens most in need of assistance first, like our military members, Veterans, the elderly and the disabled?
Conceptualizing huge stimulus bills stuffed with billions of dollars funding for irrelevant special interests, (pork) then debating the bills which have not yet even been written to completion, and passing them, while still incomplete, (Obamacare, “We have to pass it before you can find out what is in it.”) Always in the middle of the night, always of the verge of major holidays and prolonged vacation periods.
Consistently failing to act on critical issues important to the health, well being and safety of the American people or for that matter, ignoring the issues completely until they become wide spread catastrophic emergencies or events which often cost countless lives, in spite of the fact that they have been warned and alerted to the ever growing impending emergencies in need of immediate attention via in person visits from those involved, millions of phone calls, e-mails, letters, and faxes sent by their constituents. All of this habitually falls upon dead ears until it all blows up around them, at which point they all scream in unison, “If only we’d known sooner!”
I can and will go on, but I’m certain now that I’ve mentioned a few things, you all can and will have much to add.
You see, part of the problem is, we’re all aware of what is happening, we live it, hear it, feel it, and become enraged about it each and every time.
Then after the explosions, our duly elected feckless Congressional Representatives all go off on their 4-6 wk vacations, allow the dust to settle, and as they do, the colossal *uck ups are discussed and written about less and less until, by the time they finally return to the scene of the crimes, most people have forgotten about it, moved on to the next imminent disaster in need of attention, or if it’s REALLY major, they find some other thing to divert our attention, take the heat off, and save Congressional members having to suffer any consequences for their actions.
All the while, We The People, run into brick wall after brick wall in our attempts to fight against it, and when we FINALLY come together in numbers too big to ignore, and present in Washington united in our grievances to exercise our rights to rally, protest and speak our minds, our distinguished members of Congress, together with the FBI, DOJ, and God knows who else, engage in covert deeds, staged violence, and make accusations which have zero basis in fact.
Who are you going to believe? Those you elected to represent you who are known to be corrupt liars at their core, and have spent decades proving it, or yourself, your family members, neighbors, and friends who were there that day?
How about the ones still being imprisoned and mistreated for having committed misdemeanors?
Are you seriously STILL going to sit in your homes and allow this to continue until we have nothing? No homes, no liberty, no freedom, no faith, no hope, no constitution, and no country?
Is doing nothing still going to be your answer as things continue to to worsen, disintegrate right before your eyes and fall through your fingers like sand? Good Lord I hope not!
But I digress, (I did warn you about my ADHD brain in my defense)
Congressional Access To Americans Private Communications
E. The DEA
In order to really grasp the enormous amount of power the DEA holds and yields without any oversight within the United States government, you first need to understand at least a Cliff’s notes version of it’s creation, history, how it operates, and where it gets it’s funding from. So, grab a refill of your favorite beverage, a small snack, (I suggest small because reading this section may make you sick.) and get comfortable.
This is one of several government agencies which, the further we dig into and learn about, the more OUT OF CONTROL you realize our government really is, so lets rip off the bandaid and begin.
The DEA was created July 1, 1973 President Richard Nixon created the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) through an executive order that established a centralized command structure to combat “an all-out global war on the drug menace.” Currently, the DEA retains a presence in the U.S. and 63 foreign countries, and has an operating budget of over 3 BILLION dollars.
In fiscal year 2021 the DEA had nearly 10,000 employees including; 4,649 “Special Agents,” 5,200 “support staff,” 500 “Diversion Investigators,” 800 “Intelligence Research Specialists,” and 300 “Chemists.”
A large portion of the DEA budget comes from Civil Asset Forfeiture, (The booty recovered from what they do.)
From those funds, Agents get bonuses, special assignments, equipment, and all the things Congress won’t pay for like confidential informants, or “assets.” Some of whom are paid extremely well for delivering information to DEA agents and putting themselves in danger so the DEA doesn’t have to.
It really doesn’t matter if the information is useful or even true, as long as those informants and assets deliver, they get paid. This manner of collecting information leads to innocent people being accused of things they didn’t do, and when that happens, the DEA doesn’t really mind, because they have the green light from congress to make things up as they go along, lie, use false documents, and do what ever they need to in order to entrap their target.
This is especially helpful with those whose behaviors may not have been all together illegal, but rather sketchy enough to be placed in positions where they have no alternative other than go along with anything and everything the DEA tells them to in order to snare fish much bigger than themselves.
Special Operations Division fabricated evidence trails
In 2013, Reuters published a report about the DEA’s Special Operations Division (SOD) stating that it conceals where an investigation about a suspect originates from and creates a parallel set of evidence given to prosecutors, judges, and defense lawyers.
This DEA program mainly affects common criminals such as drug dealers, but in recent years it has also been used in the entrapment of medical doctors for the prescribing of opiate pain medications in amounts or dosages the DEA has decided are “excessive” or outside the current perceived “norm.”
This “norm” is not based on any legitimate scientific testing or studies, and ignores current FDA directives.
DEA claims to base many of these investigations and convictions of American doctors upon the “2016 CDC Guidelines For the Prescription of Opiate pain medications” A document which has since been proven to be based upon junk science, fabricated studies, baseless opinions, and manipulated statistics.
The guidelines where written in a way that did not comply with the creation of such documents by individuals with significant conflicts of interest who were in positions to financially gain significant sums of money, once the guidelines were implemented throughout the country.
The concealment of evidence means the defendant is unaware of how his or her investigation began, (who or what initially made the claim of illegal activity) and will be unable to request a review of possible sources of exculpatory evidence.
Exculpatory evidence may include biased witnesses, mistakes, or entrapment.
Nancy Gertner, a former federal judge who had served from 1994 to 2011 and a Harvard Law School professor, stated that “It is one thing to create special rules for national security. Ordinary crime is entirely different. It sounds like they are phonying up investigations.”
Andrew O’Hehir of Salon wrote, “It’s clear evidence that “special rules” and disregard for constitutional law have crept into the domestic criminal justice system on a significant scale” under the guise of “National Security” and terrorism.
https://oig.justice.gov/reports/2017/e1702.pdf Review of the Department’s Oversight of Cash Seizure and Forfeiture Activities
The Drug Enforcement Administration takes billions of dollars in cash from people who are never charged with criminal activity, according to a report issued today by the Justice Department’s Inspector General.
Since 2007, the report found, the DEA has seized more than $4 billion in cash from people suspected of involvement with the drug trade. But 81 percent of those seizures, totaling $3.2 billion, were conducted administratively, meaning no civil or criminal charges were brought against the owners of the cash and no judicial review of the seizures ever occurred.
That total does not include the dollar value of other seized assets, like cars, homes, electronics and clothing.
These seizures are all legal under the controversial practice of civil asset forfeiture, which allows authorities to take cash, contraband and property from people suspected of crime. But the practice does not require authorities to obtain a criminal conviction, and it allows departments to keep seized cash and property for themselves unless individuals successfully challenge the forfeiture in court. Critics across the political spectrum say this creates a perverse profit motive, incentivizing police to seize goods not for the purpose of fighting crime, but for padding department budgets.
The scope of asset forfeiture is staggering. Since 2007 the Department of Justice’s Asset Forfeiture Fund, which collects proceeds from seized cash and other property, has ballooned to $28 billion. In 2014 alone authorities seized $5 billion in cash and property from people — greater than the value of all documented losses to burglary that year.

April 15, 2015, 3:00pm
The Drug Enforcement Administration has been buying spyware produced by the controversial Italian surveillance tech company Hacking Team since 2012, Motherboard has learned.
The software, known as Remote Control System or “RCS,” is capable of intercepting phone calls, texts, and social media messages, and can surreptitiously turn on a user’s webcam and microphone as well as collect passwords.
The DEA originally placed an order for the software in August of 2012, according to both public records and sources with knowledge of the deal.
The contract, which has not been previously revealed, shows that the FBI is not the only US government agency engaged in hacking tactics, but that the DEA has also been purchasing off-the-shelf malware that could be used to spy on suspected criminals.
This revelation comes just a week after USA Today uncovered a secret program with which the DEA collected the phone records of millions of Americans for more than 20 years, a program that pre-dated and inspired the NSA’s own bulk telephone collection program, suggesting that the drug agency is sort of a pioneer in the use of surveillance.
Surveillance tech experts say the DEA’s relation with Hacking Team is further proof that methods and tools once only reserved for the military, intelligence agencies and even cybercriminals—such as drones and StingRays—are becoming commonplace in law enforcement as well.
“Hacking software is yet another example of a technology created for the intelligence community that has secretly trickled down to law enforcement.”
“Hacking software is yet another example of a technology created for the intelligence community that has secretly trickled down to law enforcement,” Christopher Soghoian, the principal technologist at the American Civil Liberties Union and an expert of surveillance technology, told Motherboard.
And given the how powerful this spyware can be, Soghoian added, “we need a public debate over this invasive surveillance technology.”
THE PAPER TRAIL
The contract, according to public records, was signed on August 20, 2012 for a total value of $2.4 million between the DEA’s Office of Investigative Technology and a government contractor named Cicom USA.
The records were uncovered by Motherboard and Privacy International, a London-based digital rights group, in independent investigations.
The contract, which records show is slated to be completed in August of 2015, is identified only as “Remote Controlled Host Based Interception System.”
That system, according to sources, is none other than Hacking Team’s Remote Control System, also known as Galileo, which the company markets as “the hacking suite for governmental interception.”
“You cannot stop your targets from moving. How can you keep chasing them? What you need is a way to bypass encryption, collect relevant data out of any device, and keep monitoring your targets wherever they are, even outside your monitoring domain. Remote Control System does exactly that,” a company brochure boasts.
Cicom USA, Motherboard has learned, was simply a reseller for Hacking Team, a spyware-maker that’s been accused of selling its products to some governments with questionable human rights records. Some of those governments, such as Ethiopia, the United Arab Emirates, or Morocco, used Hacking Team’s software to target dissidents and journalists.
In light of those incidents, which were uncovered by researchers at the Citizen Lab at the University of Toronto’s Munk School of Global Affairs, the company was included in a blacklist of corporate “Enemies of the Internet” by Reporters Without Borders.
Despite speculation based on the fact that Hacking Team has an office in the US, there’s never been any evidence that the company had sold its products on American soil, even though CEO David Vincenzetti boasted of having clients in more than 40 countries, including the US, in a 2011 interview with Italian newsmagazine L’Espresso.
The connection between Cicom USA and Hacking Team was confirmed to Motherboard by multiple sources with knowledge of the deal, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the content of the contract.
Eric Rabe, a spokesperson for Hacking Team, did not confirm nor deny the existence of the contract with the DEA.
“We don’t identify our clients. I’m certainly not going to comment whether the DEA or anyone else has purchased Hacking Team software.”
“We don’t identify our clients. I’m certainly not going to comment whether the DEA or anyone else has purchased Hacking Team software,” he told Motherboard in a phone interview. And for the same reason, he added, he declined to clarify what was the relationship between Hacking Team and Cicom USA.
Alex Velasco, Cicom USA’s general manager, did not answer Motherboard’s request for comment.
But the connection between the two companies is clear. Cicom USA is based in Annapolis, MD, at the same exact address where Hacking Team’s US office is located, according to the company’s website. The phone number for Cicom USA listed in the contract with the DEA, moreover, is exactly the same one that was displayed on Hacking Team’s website until February of this year.
When asked whether this was just a coincidence, Rabe laughed.
“I don’t know about why that would be a coincidence,” he said, but declined to elaborate.
It’s unclear what the DEA has been doing with Hacking Team’s malware. But the relationship between the agency and Cicom USA—and thus, Hacking Team—appears to be ongoing. The most recent public record shows a payment from the DEA to Cicom USA made in September of 2014.
A spokesperson for the DEA did not respond to a series of specific questions on the contract and how the DEA is using this technology. Thomas L. Walden, the section chief of the DEA Office of Investigative Technology, also did not respond to a message requesting comment.
Hacking Team’s RCS software can be surreptitiously installed on a target’s computer or cellphone and monitor all activity, allowing police officers to spy on data that might otherwise be encrypted and out of their reach.
Software like this isn’t sold only by Hacking Team. The Italian company is just one of an ever-growing group of surveillance tech companies that market their products exclusively to governments, police departments, and spy agencies, such as the French VUPEN, or the German FinFisher and its parent company Gamma International.
This is exactly the kind of software that the DEA was looking for, according to an official call for tender or “request for Information” published by the agency in March, 2012.
“The DEA is seeking information from potential sources with a fully functional and operational product proven to be capable of providing a Remote Control Host Based Interception System for device or target specific collection pursuant to authorized law enforcement use,” the document reads.
Roughly a month later, on May 4, 2012. The DEA had what it was looking for. In another document, the agency announced that it was going to “solicit and negotiate” a contract with Cicom USA for the duration of at least four years.
Cicom USA, according to the DEA, emerged as the only company capable of providing the service required, based on market research conducted internally by the agency. The DEA did not respond to questions regarding this research.
It’s possible the DEA picked Cicom USA because the US Army had done the same a year prior. According to public records, the Army made a purchase order for a Remote Control System on March 2011. The order shows that the Army was supposed to pay $350,000 for the software, and further confirms Cicom USA’s connection with Hacking Team, given that Italy is listed as the country of origin of the product. (The Army did not respond to Motherboard’s questions regarding the contract.)
IS IT LEGAL FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT TO HACK TARGETS?
For surveillance experts, the big question is whether the DEA actually has legal authority to use spyware such as Hacking Team’s—and how, exactly, it is used. A DEA spokesperson said that the agency “always abides by the laws of the jurisdictions within which it operates.”
And added that “however, in this case, this is off-the-shelf technology, legally available for purchase by all and used throughout the world by many organizations.”
But experts are not convinced.
“The legal framework governing the use of such tools in the US is extremely unclear, meaning that the use of Hacking Team’s spyware is potentially unlawful,” Edin Omanovic, a researcher at Privacy International, told Motherboard.
“The use of Hacking Team’s spyware is potentially unlawful.”
The FBI is the only other US law enforcement agency that has been reported to use malware. The bureau has been using it since at least 2001 when FBI’s spyware Magic Lantern was revealed. But the precise legal authority, as well as the process that FBI agents use to get authorization, is still unclear, and very few cases where the bureau used malware have actually come to light.
In 2011, internal emails obtained by the Electronic Frontier Foundation revealed that in some past instances, FBI agents considered using malware known as “Computer and Internet Protocol Address Verifier” (CIPAV) without getting a warrant, or in other cases, hid key details on what the technology actually entailed in order to increase the chances the judge would approve it.
In any case, the bureau, after consulting with the Office of General Counsel and the National Security Law Branch finally appeared to settle on a “two-step request” legal process: get a search warrant to authorize the deployment of the software on a target’s computer, and then a subsequent order (known as pen register or trap and trace) to authorize the actual surveillance.
In 2013, a Texas judge stopped the FBI from using malware, rejecting the bureau’s warrant application because it was too vague and didn’t specify how the agents would actually install the software.
Soghoian, the ACLU surveillance tech expert, said that given the nature of this technology, and the fact that “Congress and the courts have been kept in the dark” about it, Americans should have more information on when and how the feds are using spyware.
“If law enforcement agencies can hack into your computer, turn on your webcam, turn on your microphone and steal documents from your computer, that’s the kind of thing that should get the attention of Congress.”
“Courts are not being told how agencies will get malware onto the computers of targets,” Soghoian said. “Similarly, law enforcement agencies have not discussed the use of this technique in any public Congressional hearings.”
“The American people deserve some answers and I think Congress needs to investigate this,” Soghoian told Motherboard.
Omanovic, from Privacy International, added that the US needs update the legal framework regarding hacking and the use of spyware by law enforcement agencies and establish “effective oversight mechanisms.”
Privacy International also released a dossier on Hacking Team on Wednesday, asking Italian authorities to look into the company and its practices in light of European export controls of surveillance technology. (Rabe said that the company “is in compliance with all export laws.”)
Some legal experts, however, argue that there’s nothing illegal about the use of spyware. Although there is no specific law that specifically covers hacking, Jonathan Mayer, a computer scientist and lawyer at Stanford University, said that law enforcement agencies are “broadly authorized” to conduct searches in the US, including using hacking techniques.
“They don’t need some special legislative grant of extra authority before they can hack,” Mayer told Motherboard, adding that a search warrant supported by probable cause and particularly describing what the agents seek is all they need.
But for critics, such as Soghoian or Privacy International, there still should be more transparency and a public debate.
“If law enforcement agencies can hack into your computer, turn on your webcam, turn on your microphone and steal documents from your computer,” Soghoian said, “that’s the kind of thing that should get the attention of Congress, particularly before this trickles down to local law enforcement agencies.”
The DOJ of course, the entity which the DEA supposedly answers to, turns it’s head, and conveniently produces the statue of the three monkeys all covering some part of their heads with their hands, “see no evil, speak no evil, hear not evil”, The Office of the DOJ employee then closes the door or hangs up the phone.
God forbid they provide oversight or demand accountability, that would only serve to make their jobs harder!
F. The CIA
The Central Intelligence Agency has a history nearly a century long of its involvement with the illegal drug trade, bringing illegal drugs into the United States, distributing those drugs, and selling them on our streets.
They have also been involved in the creation of mind altering substances, and the illegal dosing of innocent American Citizens with those drugs in furtherance of the experimentation of them.
The CIA illegally used American Citizens as Lab Rats without their knowledge or consent in the testing of nerve gases, chemical and germ warfare,

- The DOD
Over the past 40 years, the bravest, and most honorable among us have consistently been short changed by our government in that the things they were promised when they signed on that dotted line, entering into a “contract” with the U.S. Government. Those contracted “promises” have been changed, altered, removed completely, and made increasingly difficult or impossible for our military members to obtain.
Prime examples that come immediately to mind include, inability to obtain adequate medical treatment by trained well educated licensed professionals in their fields, (V.A. doctors who are not licensed or have had their licenses revoked, who are substandard, have multiple serious instances of malpractice, psychiatrists who are known terrorists, that go on killing sprees at medical clinics killing and wounding the patients they are supposed to be treating)
Inability to obtain needed medications because the V.A. failed to negotiate discounted prices on them or list them as formulary. Inability to obtain needed medical appointments, services and treatment for months, years, or sometimes not at all. 3 to 5 year wait times to navigate /obtain Military disability benefits. Refusal of DOD and medical professionals as well as our government’s highest elected office holders to acknowledge conditions, illnesses, effects, symptoms, and diseases caused as a direct result of service members military service, substances encountered, vaccinated with, ingested, or exposed to during that military service, such as Agent Orange, experimental anthrax vaccine, unprotected exposure to depleted uranium, toxins emitted from burning oil fields, biological weapons, toxic water, insecticides and more. Not to mention the inability to obtain adequate effective mental health treatment, which has directly resulted in the suicide deaths of more than 36 U.S. Service members per day for years at a time, the often disgusting unsanitary, poorly maintained, substandard living conditions service members are forced to endure as they are being treated at even the most well known “State of the art” military medical facilities, and countless other things too numerous to mention.
And I am only just getting started!
According to the “Military Human Experimentation Congressional Committee Report 103-97”
The following was found to be true and factual:
Several examples of U.S. Government researchers intentionally exposing Americans to potentially dangerous substances without their knowledge or consent.
The Senate Committee on Veterans’ Affairs conducted a comprehensive analysis of the extent to which veterans participated in such research while they were serving in the U.S. military. This resulted in two hearings, on May 6, 1994, and August 5, 1994 the findings of which were as follows:
(**Keep in mind this applied only to instances having occurred prior to 1994. We will discuss subsequent instances occurring after that date further down.)
Taken directly from Report 103-97
- A. For at least 50 years, DOD has intentionally exposed military personnel to potentially dangerous substances, often in secret
- B. DOD has repeatedly failed to comply with required ethical standards when using human subjects in military research during war or threat of war
- C. DOD incorrectly claims that since their goal was treatment, the use of investigational drugs in the Persian Gulf War was not research
- D. DOD used investigational drugs in the Persian Gulf War in ways that were not effective
- E. DOD did not know whether pyridostigmine bromide would be safe for use by U.S. troops in the Persian Gulf War
- F. When U.S. troops were sent to the Persian Gulf in 1994, DOD still did not have proof that pyridostigmine bromide was safe for use as an antidote enhancer
- G. Pyridostigmine may be more dangerous in combination with pesticides and other exposures
- H. The safety of the botulism vaccine was not established prior to the Persian Gulf War
- I. Records of anthrax vaccinations are not suitable to evaluate safety*******
- J. Army regulations exempt informed consent for volunteers in some types of military research
* K. DOD and DVA have repeatedly failed to provide information and medical follow-up to those who participate in military research or are ordered to take investigational drugs
- L. The Federal Government has failed to support scientific studies that provide information about the reproductive problems experienced by veterans who were intentionally exposed to potentially dangerous substances
- M. The Federal Government has failed to support scientific studies that provide timely information for compensation decisions regarding military personnel who were harmed by various exposures
- N. Participation in military research is rarely included in military medical records, making it impossible to support a veteran’s claim for service-connected disabilities from military research
- O. DOD has demonstrated a pattern of misrepresenting the danger of various military exposures that continues today
Persian Gulf vets were given investigational vaccines and ordered not to tell anyone.
In a Committee survey of 150 individuals who served in the military during the Persian Gulf War, many of those surveyed indicated they were ordered, under threat of Article 15 or court martial, to discuss their vaccinations with no one, not even with medical professionals needing the information to treat adverse reactions from the vaccine.
Similarly, 86 percent of the military personnel who told the Committee that they were ordered to take pyridostigmine bromide reported that they received no information on what they were taking or the drug’s potential risks.
According to a DOD study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, commanding officers and medical personnel were also inadequately informed about the investigational drugs; as a result, they were ill-prepared to recognize or treat military personnel who experienced side effects.
This was not the first time service members have been forced to comply with orders that were violations of their human rights, not to mention rights as American citizens. There exists a pattern of behavior which dates back nearly 80 years. We’ll discuss that a bit later in this article.
What is included above is what they “allowed” to be included in this government report. As if this information were not wildly mind blowing enough, consider the following which occurred after this report was written;
on Tuesday October 5th 1999, A day after Republican Rep. Chris Shays of Connecticut ended congressional hearings on the controversial decision mandating the inoculation of 2.4 million U.S. troops against anthrax, President Clinton quietly signed an executive order, or EO, that denies soldiers the right to refuse experimental vaccines.
President William Jefferson Clinton
quietly signed an executive order named,
Executive Order 13139 of September 30, 1999
“Improving Health Protection of Military Personnel Participating in Particular Military Operations”
Within this executive order, he authorized the administration of experimental drugs not approved by the FDA to American military personnel without their informed consent.
It is important to note, that this Executive order was not signed until October 5th, 1999, long after those service members subjected to unproven, unapproved drugs before and during the first Persian Gulf war and their family members had begun developing serious health problems as a direct result of the administration of those drugs.
One has to then ask them self why, if the serious adverse effects of such “experimental drugs” were becoming more and more pronounced and known to our government, and the administration of them had been found to be not only a serious health risk, but also a violation of the civil rights of those service members and their family members, would a sitting U.S. president authorize the practice of doing it?
This question is especially relevant since this was in fact a time of relative peace. In what reality does that make even the slightest sliver of sense?
Perhaps, in a reality where you anticipate some significant military action within the not too distant future?
Perhaps, oh say, a 911 type incident that would in all likelihood result in a full scale war lasting decades into the forceable future for example? But I Digress.
As I mentioned earlier, this is not the first time U.S. service members, (or for that matter, U.S. Citizens) have been subjected to “experimental” drugs, substances, procedures, and even bio-hazardous germs and microbes.
In fact, the United States government has a long history of such practices violating their citizens civil rights and engaging in unethical experimentation with the lives and health of Americans.
The following is a partial list of this disgraceful practice within the U.S. history:
1931 Dr. Cornelius Rhoads, under the auspices of the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Investigations, infects human subjects with cancer cells. He later goes on to establish the U.S. Army Biological Warfare facilities in Maryland, Utah, and Panama, and is named to the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission. While there, he begins a series of radiation exposure experiments on American soldiers and civilian hospital patients.
1932 The Tuskegee Syphilis Study begins. 200 black men diagnosed with syphilis are never told of their illness, are denied treatment, and instead are used as human guinea pigs in order to follow the progression and symptoms of the disease. They all subsequently die from syphilis, their families never told that they could have been treated.
1935 The Pellagra Incident. After millions of individuals die from Pellagra over a span of two decades, the U.S. Public Health Service finally acts to stem the disease. The director of the agency admits it had known for at least 20 years that Pellagra is caused by a niacin deficiency but failed to act since most of the deaths occurred within poverty stricken black populations.
1940 Four hundred prisoners in Chicago are infected with Malaria in order to study the effects of new and experimental drugs to combat the disease. Nazi doctors later on trial at Nuremberg cite this American study to defend their own actions during the Holocaust.
1942 Chemical Warfare Services begins mustard gas experiments on approximately 4,000 servicemen. The experiments continue until 1945 and made use of Seventh Day Adventists who chose to become human guinea pigs rather than serve on active duty.
1943 In response to Japan’s full-scale germ warfare program, the U.S. begins research on biological weapons at Fort Detrick, MD.
1944 U.S. Navy uses human subjects to test gas masks and clothing. Individuals were locked in a gas chamber and exposed to mustard gas and lewisite.
1945 Project Paperclip is initiated. The U.S. State Department, Army intelligence, and the CIA recruit Nazi scientists and offer them immunity and secret identities in exchange for work on top secret government projects in the United States.
1945 “Program F” is implemented by the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission (AEC). This is the most extensive U.S. study of the health effects of fluoride, which was the key chemical component in atomic bomb production. One of the most toxic chemicals known to man, fluoride, it is found, causes marked adverse effects to the central nervous system but much of the information is squelched in the name of national security because of fear that lawsuits would undermine full-scale production of atomic bombs.
1946 Patients in VA hospitals are used as guinea pigs for medical experiments. In order to allay suspicions, the order is given to change the word “experiments” to “investigations” or “observations” whenever reporting a medical study performed in one of the nation’s veteran’s hospitals.
1947 Colonel E.E. Kirkpatrick of the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission issues a secret document (Document 07075001, January 8, 1947) stating that the agency will begin administering intravenous doses of radioactive substances to human subjects.
1947 The CIA begins its study of LSD as a potential weapon for use by American intelligence. Human subjects (both civilian and military) are used with and without their knowledge. (MK Ultra beginnings)
1950 Department of Defense begins plans to detonate nuclear weapons in desert areas and monitor downwind residents for medical problems and mortality rates.
1950 In an experiment to determine how susceptible an American city would be to biological attack, the U.S. Navy sprays a cloud of bacteria from ships over San Francisco. Monitoring devices are situated throughout the city in order to test the extent of infection. Many residents become ill with pneumonia-like symptoms.
1951 Department of Defense begins open air tests using disease-producing bacteria and viruses. Tests last through 1969 and there is concern that people in the surrounding areas have been exposed.
1953 U.S. military releases clouds of zinc cadmium sulfide gas over Winnipeg, St. Louis, Minneapolis, Fort Wayne, the Monocacy River Valley in Maryland, and Leesburg, Virginia. Their intent is to determine how efficiently they could disperse chemical agents.
1953 Joint Army-Navy-CIA experiments are conducted in which tens of thousands of people in New York and San Francisco are exposed to the airborne germs Serratia marcescens and Bacillus glogigii.
1953 CIA initiates Project MK ULTRA. This is a research program designed to produce and test drugs and biological agents that would be used for mind control and behavior modification. Six of the sub projects involved testing the agents on unwitting human beings.
1955 The CIA, in an experiment to test its ability to infect human populations with biological agents, releases a bacteria withdrawn from the Army’s biological warfare arsenal over Tampa Bay, Fl.
1955 Army Chemical Corps continues LSD research, studying its potential use as a chemical incapacitating agent. More than 1,000 Americans participate in the tests, which continue until 1958.
1956 U.S. military releases mosquitoes infected with Yellow Fever over Savannah, Ga and Avon Park, Fl. Following each test, Army agents posing as public health officials test victims for effects.
1958 LSD is tested on 95 volunteers at the Army’s Chemical Warfare Laboratories for its effect on intelligence.
1960 The Army Assistant Chief-of-Staff for Intelligence (ACSI) authorizes field testing of LSD in Europe and the Far East. Testing of the European population is code named Project THIRD CHANCE; testing of the Asian population is code named Project DERBY HAT.
1965 Project CIA and Department of Defense begin Project MK SEARCH, a program to develop a capability to manipulate human behavior through the use of mind-altering drugs.
1965 Prisoners at the Holmesburg State Prison in Philadelphia are subjected to dioxin, the highly toxic chemical component of Agent Orange used in Viet Nam. The men are later studied for development of cancer, which indicates that Agent Orange had been a suspected carcinogen all along.
1966 CIA initiates Project MK OFTEN, a program to test the toxicological effects of certain drugs on humans and animals.
1966 U.S. Army dispenses Bacillus subtilis variant niger throughout the New York City subway system. More than a million civilians are exposed when army scientists drop lightbulbs filled with the bacteria onto ventilation grates.
1967 CIA and Department of Defense implement Project MK NAOMI, successor to MK ULTRA and designed to maintain, stockpile and test biological and chemical weapons.
1968 CIA experiments with the possibility of poisoning drinking water by injecting chemicals into the water supply of the FDA in Washington, D.C.
1969 Dr. Robert MacMahan of the Department of Defense requests from congress $10 million to develop, within 5 to 10 years, a synthetic biological agent to which no natural immunity exists.
1970 Funding for the synthetic biological agent is obtained under H.R. 15090. The project, under the supervision of the CIA, is carried out by the Special Operations Division at Fort Detrick, the army’s top secret biological weapons facility. Speculation is raised that molecular biology techniques are used to produce AIDS-like retroviruses.
1970 United States intensifies its development of “ethnic weapons” (Military Review, Nov., 1970), designed to selectively target and eliminate specific ethnic groups who are susceptible due to genetic differences and variations in DNA.
1975 The virus section of Fort Detrick’s Center for Biological Warfare Research is renamed the Fredrick Cancer Research Facilities and placed under the supervision of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) . It is here that a special virus cancer program is initiated by the U.S. Navy, purportedly to develop cancer-causing viruses. It is also here that retro virologists isolate a virus to which no immunity exists. It is later named HTLV (Human T-cell Leukemia Virus).
1977 Senate hearings on Health and Scientific Research confirm that 239 populated areas had been contaminated with biological agents between 1949 and 1969. Some of the areas included San Francisco, Washington, D.C., Key West, Panama City, Minneapolis, and St. Louis.
1978 Experimental Hepatitis B vaccine trials, conducted by the CDC, begin in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Ads for research subjects specifically ask for promiscuous homosexual men.
1981 First cases of AIDS are confirmed in homosexual men in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco, triggering speculation that AIDS may have been introduced via the Hepatitis B vaccine
1985 According to the journal Science (227:173-177), HTLV and VISNA, a fatal sheep virus, are very similar, indicating a close taxonomic and evolutionary relationship.
1986 According to the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (83:4007-4011), HIV and VISNA are highly similar and share all structural elements, except for a small segment which is nearly identical to HTLV. This leads to speculation that HTLV and VISNA may have been linked to produce a new retrovirus to which no natural immunity exists.
1986 A report to Congress reveals that the U.S. Government’s current generation of biological agents includes: modified viruses, naturally occurring toxins, and agents that are altered through genetic engineering to change immunological character and prevent treatment by all existing vaccines.
1987 Department of Defense admits that, despite a treaty banning research and development of biological agents, it continues to operate research facilities at 127 facilities and universities around the nation.
1990 More than 1500 six-month old black and hispanic babies in Los Angeles are given an “experimental” measles vaccine that had never been licensed for use in the United States. CDC later admits that parents were never informed that the vaccine being injected to their children was experimental.
1994 With a technique called “gene tracking,” Dr. Garth Nicolson at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX discovers that many returning Desert Storm veterans are infected with an altered strain of Mycoplasma incognitus, a microbe commonly used in the production of biological weapons. Incorporated into its molecular structure is 40 percent of the HIV protein coat, indicating that it had been man-made.
1994 Senator John D. Rockefeller issues a report revealing that for at least 50 years the Department of Defense has used hundreds of thousands of military personnel in human experiments and for intentional exposure to dangerous substances. Materials included mustard and nerve gas, ionizing radiation, psychochemicals, hallucinogens, and drugs used during the Gulf War .
1995 U.S. Government admits that it had offered Japanese war criminals and scientists who had performed human medical experiments salaries and immunity from prosecution in exchange for data on biological warfare research.
1995 Dr. Garth Nicolson, uncovers evidence that the biological agents used during the Gulf War had been manufactured in Houston, TX and Boca Raton, Fl and tested on prisoners in the Texas Department of Corrections.
1996 Department of Defense admits that Desert Storm soldiers were exposed to chemical agents.
Huntsville Alabama scientists create “population control” illness which attacks the immune system
Question, If Adrenocrome is a “made up” thing, why does anyone have a U.S. Patent for it?
Dr. Larry Goss, a Lawton, Oklahoma physician who has worked in Veterans Administration hospitals and clinics, caring for Gulf War veterans, had little regard for the rumors surrounding the origin of the supposed Gulf War Illness (GWI). That is, until he contracted the disease, himself, from the veterans he was treating. When his wife and son also became sick with the “fantasy” illness, as the government has attempted to label it, he became a staunch believer.
Evidence indicates that the government has experimented with a very large percentage of the veterans participating not only in Operation Desert Storm, but with those in Bosnia as well. The American Gulf War Veteran’s Association* (AGWVA) claims that 40% (280,000) of the veterans participating in the Persian Gulf hostilities have contracted some form of neuromuscular or skin disorders. Among the most prominent are:
•Guillain-Barré, syndrome (acute idiopathic polyneuritis)
•Lou Gerig’s Disease (ALS – amyotrophic lateral sclerosis)
The AGWVA, founded by retired U.S. Air Force Captain, Joyce Riley Von Kleist, RN, was established to provide aid and information for veterans who have contracted GWI, also referred to as the Gulf War Syndrome (GWS). Von Kleist claims to have substantial evidence supporting allegations that GWS comes from the “one thing we all have in common–vaccinations.” Capt.Von Kleist engages in what seems to be well-founded speculation when she states her belief that much of the problems suffered by Gulf War veterans stem from secret inoculations intended as experimental HIV vaccines.
Dr. Garth L. Nicolson, Ph.D., is a Professor of Internal Medicine and Professor of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the University of Texas Medical School at Houston. He is also the Chief Scientific Officer for the Institute for Molecular Medicine in Huntington Beach, California, and has personally examined almost two-hundred veterans suffering from Gulf War Syndrome.
During those examinations, Dr. Nicolson found that nearly half of the veterans were infected with an unusual microorganism called mycoplasma fermentans (incognitus strain). In almost half of the vets examined these exceptionally tiny and primitive bacteria were found deep within the blood leukocytes–the white blood cells that comprise the most aggressive part of the body’s immune system machinery. “This microorganism,” Nicolson explains, “is similar to a bacterium without a cell wall and, although mycoplasmas are often found at superficial sites in humans, such as in the oral cavity, they are rarely found in the blood.”
An even more astonishing discovery was that those same bacteria found in the Gulf War veterans’ blood also contained a portion of the HIV–the virus that causes AIDS. This gene, called the gp120 or “envelope” gene, only codes for creating the surface protein of the virus. This is an important factor in the cell’s ability to do its nasty work.
That the United States Government has been performing secret medical experiments on its own citizens (civilian as well as military) without their permission or knowledge is not only a historically proven fact, known by many, but it is obvious that it is not confined to history. What most do not know is that U.S. law actually provides for the government’s use of its own citizens as experimental test subjects without their permission or prior knowledge.
Federal law 50 USC 1520 entitled, “WAR AND NATIONAL DEFENSE, CHAPTER 32 – CHEMICAL AND BIOLOGICAL WARFARE PROGRAM” begins with the ominous, almost Mengelian prologue:
Use of human subjects for testing of chemical or biological agents by Department of Defense; accounting to Congressional committees with respect to experiments and studies; notification of local civilian officials…
The only provision contained in the law for challenging such experiments is in the obliquely worded paragraph one of subsection ‘b’ which says:
The Secretary of Defense may not conduct any test or experiment involving the use of any chemical or biological agent on civilian populations unless local civilian officials in the area in which the test or experiment is to be conducted are notified in advance of such test or experiment…
This necessarily applies to peacetime civilian populations. There would be no permission asked, or granted, of a foreign government with which this nation were at war, for permission to experiment on their citizens.
such tests or experiments may then be conducted only after the expiration of the thirty-day period beginning on the date of such notification.
It should be noted that no definition exists within that law which defines who or what constitutes “local civilian officials”. Under this wording compliance could be satisfied by the notification of an off-duty meter maid.
The reality of 50 USC 1520 is that it is, on the face of it, unconstitutional. The fourth article of amendment to the U.S. Constitution clearly states, “The right of the people to be secure in their persons…shall not be violated.”
The most prominent application of the federal law, with which most people are familiar, is the infamous Tuskegee Experiments. These were studies performed by the United States Public Health Service (USPHS) upon 412 black American citizens infected with syphilis, depriving them of a proven cure for the purpose of a 40-year study of the disease’s effect–which, untreated, is nearly always death.
More recently it has come to light experiments being performed, again on black people, by the United States government; this time outside the restrictions of U.S. law.
A September 18 article in the New York Times reveals that “…for the past two years, the United States has been conducting experiments on pregnant women infected with HIV in Africa, Thailand and the Dominican Republic, in which some women are given drugs that can prevent transmission of the deadly AIDS virus to their babies and some receive only dummy pills.
“The study is so controversial,” theTimes article continues, “that even some of the government’s own scientists have questioned whether it is ethical.”
Given this information then, how much of a reach is it REALLY to believe that if those we’ve elected to office through all these years, have allowed, encouraged, been complicit about, and deliberately engaged in covering all of these things up, keeping them hidden from the eyes of those affected most, from those suffering from conditions, illnesses and diseases created and caused by our government intentionally, and then denied by our government for years so they wouldn’t be held financially responsible for helping and treating the very illnesses and conditions THEY CREATED?
Similarly, with the ever increasing incidence of Cancer, auto immune diseases, and rare illnesses in our population, how much of a reach is it to think that perhaps they are contaminating our food, our water, or even the air we breathe? With this history of dirty deeds, these are no longer tin foil hat wearing conspiracy theories, they are very real, very possible, and in fact, very probable.
Once you know the tip of their dirty little secrets, and begin to raise voices in unison, as one American citizenry and demand accountability and answers, we can then begin our journey marching together, with one unified voice toward taking our country back, beginning with draining the swamp that has been not only involved in all of it, but getting rich off the backs of those they’ve been doing it to!
The U.S. FBI isn’t to be out done when it comes to scandals and corruption, the list is seemingly endless, and has caused American Citizens to contemplate completely disbanding the Agency, and recreating it from the ashes minus all of the individuals who have enjoyed having their way with it for decades even beyond Watergate.

And again, we can go on and on and on and on.
All of this having been said and proven to be factual, is it REALLY even any reach at all to believe our government knew full well the Covid vaccines they were literally forcing into American adults and children were DANGEROUS, and even DEADLY?
I don’t know about any of you, but I and millions of others are no longer buying what the American Government is selling when it comes to….well, when it comes to just about anything!
With this proven record of Dirty Deeds done dirt cheap to their own citizenry, how can we possibly do anything but laugh hysterically in their faces when they tell us, “We’re from the government we’re here to help you.”?
Now is the time to decide whether you are willing to do what ever it takes to not only stand up to a tyrannical government and say NO MORE! But to actually step up and lead the way for others.
The ONLY way we win this folks is together.
Leave the egos, petty bickering, and drama at home, we simply don’t have time to deal with it. Then find the courage to come forward and fight for your freedom and that of your children and grand children.
When it comes right down to it folks, understand that if you choose not to stand up, step up, and fight for your freedom, constitution, and country right here, right now, you will have no one but yourselves to blame when you find yourselves forced to your knees, chained, and have no alternative but to serve your new masters.
Choose wisely my friends, it’s never been more important.
