November Frost. 4 More Years of Corruption in Washington.

 The November Political Frost is upon us. Will our Republic survive 4 more years of corruption?


US Attorney General Loretta Lyncy

The signs  of an entrenched  political corruption system in the US  have existed for  years  but  no real interest was given to the idea that the these signals might be correct and if they were correct what are the long term consequences and what should be done to correct or stop it…  In response to the ever growing leaks of  corruption in our government Washington politicians, bar none, have collectively diverted our attention.

These politicians stand up before us waive the flag and tell us about  treason  or conspiracy or that there is some sort of terrorism threatening us while shipping  millions of dollars to the same countries they claim are out to destroy the United States. All this to support their personal financial interests. Creating fear has been the preferred method of controlling the masses since BC.  

In response to the fear created by the destruction of the Twin Towers in NYC, Congress easily  passed the Patriot Act and along with the Patriot Act came indiscriminate  imprisonment without trials. In fact the Patriot Act itself is based on fear. Fear is the key word used to define terrorism.  The act defines Terrorism as (An) act of terrorism means an activity that (A) involves a violent act or an act dangerous to human life that is a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or any State, or that would be a criminal violation if committed within the jurisdiction of the United States or of any state, and (B) appears to be intended (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population: (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by assassination or kidnapping.

Ironically the US Congress has allocated billions of dollars to the military and to other nations to keep fear out of our lives and this same Congress has legislated fear back into our lives by passing the Patriot Act..

In the past we had little reason to disbelieve the fears created by Washington but researching the two world wars, Korea Viet Nam, Iraq, Afghanistan and more we find that these military conflicts were all based on lies  and violence that created fear.  It seems we have short memories. Its also apparent  that our Government has in fact violated the Patriot Act themselves.  Are they not creating fear themselves as described above?

Using the media to promote fear is not new either. “Americans have been living in fear since 9-11. However, the reality behind our fears has been set out by our own corporate media who has been the main culprit in spreading it like a disease. Our media has terrorized our hearts and minds for years through their subliminal violent programming, and sensational coverage of their own version of the distorted truth.”[Richard Skaff]

This whole phenomenon designed to protect and preserve corruption is not new and the list of heroic corruption whistle blowers goes back generations. The results have always been the same for these people. Imprisonment, disgrace, and financial disaster for those who rat out our government. And this strict protection of the guilty has always been at the hands of our Justice Department.  But it appears as if J Edgar Hoover knew who the real criminals were because he kept detailed files that remain top secret even today. Unfortunately his methods were admirable but for the wrong reason. His motives were to protect himself and should the files containing the secret activities of the Presidents and their men become public they would cease to be of value to him.

What do you mean it was a storm. You mean storm trooper dont you?

But there’s a new Sheriff on the planet and its name is the Internet.  Its power is infinite and it serves anyone who wishes to benefit. Its six gun is information.  The informants and whistle blowers of present have learned not to trust the people they serve. There has rarely been any kind of justice served by our authorities unless it’s the justice served on the poor, defenseless and underprivileged and there has always been consequences dealt out to those who would dare testify the truth.  The corrupt enforce the rules they have created and these rules are tailored in favor of  and exempt  the corrupt in Washington. The most important  rule the Politicians in Washington want us to  remember is thou shalt not rat us out.

 It’s not surprising, but it is most logical that whistle blowers like Chelsea Manning, Julian Assange (Wiki Leaks) and Edward Snowden (The Guardian)  decided to make their information available via the internet instead of complaining to the Federal Government. However the most important hurdle they had was how to get out of the country before the Feds snagged them up and gave them a permanent home in a Federal Dungeon.  Chelsea Manning was not quick enough. Others like Aaron Swartz of the  Anonymous group preferred suicide to dealing with the Federal Government.

Washington has drawn the line in the sand. Talk and you will be dealt with.

The emergence of the Clinton’s in Washington was and is the single most Constitutional threatening  event to occur in the United States  since Richard Nixon. The Clintons have exemplified the “Talk and you will be dealt with” fear causing statement. Some who knew the Clintons in Arkansas say this is not just talk. The second threatening event was the Congress passed the “Patriot Act.” This all encompassing act makes it possible for the Government to carry out the “dealt with” portion of the above  statement.

The idea that the Federal Government could intimidate and scare whistle blowers into keeping silent may have some old school merit but the idea that this same tactic would have the same effect on members of the internet community, some known as Anonymous, was frankly.. stupid.  These people really are anonymous, and they really do know as much or more than the Feds about the internet, computer technology and everything else that goes along with it. If the truth be known, some of these people actually work for the Feds and consult with private enterprise about how to keep their computers secure while at night are dealing out facts, figures, computer technology and anything else that interests them.  Anonymously. 


When the Federal Government went after Aaron Swartz who was held in very high regard by all that used the internet to transmit technology and information, it galvanized a community that has since been responsible for producing secret information that has resulted the downfall of some highly regarded politicians world wide.. Anonymous was credited with the eventual fall of the whole Brazilian Government.  Additionally China and Mexico have attempted to control the content on the web.  This was unsuccessful of course, mainly because the internet is not the only way to transmit electronic news anymore and the Internet geeks in the United States quickly set up an independent internet web for those in countries where the internet was  censored. 

This internet community listened, saw the corruption in the US Federal Government and responded by publishing  secret Government documents that revealed corruption. But most of all, the idea that the Federal Government was going to threaten not just the internet community individually but threatened the freedom of the internet was unacceptable. War was declared and today it looks like political corruption and their supporting organizations bit off more than they can chew. It’s becoming clear that the documents labeled ‘classified’ are not documents that protect any phase of the governments operations but conversely protect the corrupt participants.

As information regarding political corruption began to become available on the internet, so did actual proof of corruption.  Proof that couldn’t be disputed.  Emails, documents and actual recorded statements became known to exist and Federal courts have ordered that they  be handed over to organizations like Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch. The government has stalled, whined, and sometimes it took years before the evidence was made public and  as this  proof oozed out, [albeit according to our government illegally] it came slowly like an  infectious liquid from a wound and try as they did, the government couldn’t stop it.  The innuendos, and inferences pointed in the direction of Washington where declared piety lives.  But orders had been transmitted and in some cases Federal Government agencies like the FBI’s James Comey actually refused to provide information to Congress or anyone else prompting a  subpoena from congress ordering Comey to comply..comey-and-clinton

Once the evidence of actual political corruption began to float around the internet from virtually unknown sources, some well known and respected courageous news outlets and bloggers began to published the stuff (at their own risk) and in doing so, the seed of doubt in the character of those culpable in our government began to grow.  Washington ignored the allegations.

People became confused and even began to doubt or suspect  long trusted politicians and then the stormy winds of counter propaganda began to emerge from Washington.  In the beginning it was denial, and the rattling of sabers, and threats of imprisonment to those who would expose them. Its alleged that there was even murder.   Informants and whistle blowers fled the country but nothing changed. The US  mainstream media, with hands open to receive cash and guaranteed access to the white house ignored reports of corruption and accepted their mandate and instead of reporting on corruption focused on poll numbers that supported the candidate that coughed up the most favors to them.   But the internet information, about Clinton’s past associations kept saturating the internet news outlets. 

As the tsunami of information derived from email hacking, document hacking and court battles over Freedom of information access to records become available to anyone with a computer or cell phone, non believers are being transformed into believers.  But the information is coming in slow. Courts give the order to produce and the FBI declines.  The politicians who were involved are nervous. There is an impending election in 2016.  Some have panicked. FBI investigators unaware that their boss James Comey was a part of the Washington corruption network or didn’t care, just did their job regardless. They began to dig and soon there were those that strongly suggested processing a criminal indictment against Hillary Clinton and private industry executives.  They put a case together and watched as James Comey stood alone, (supported by Loretta Lynch who was not present)  and testified to Congress that there was not enough evidence against Clinton to proceed with indictment.  The White house Clinton and all their minions survived the day.

As this is written, the culpability of President Obama has not yet surfaced, but it was he that appointed Clinton as his Secretary of State, knowing then about the allegations of corruption against her. He even went so far as to require Clinton, and the Clinton Foundation to sign documents promising she and the Foundation would not violate federal law or conflict of interest concerns..memorandum_of_understanding_clinton They signed it, but both continued as if the document did not exist.  It was only the beginning of Hillary and Bills reaping of cash.  And Obama has made no attempt to interfere, question or even acknowledge her activities.

President Obama

Historical information about Obama’s association with the Clinton Foundation has not yet begun to surface however very recently it was revealed that Obama had an impact on whether or not the FBI would proceed with charges against Hillary Clinton.  This would suggest that there is more to Obama’s motivation than just being Hillary Clintons political associate.  No doubt there is an acute urgency by those in Washington to get Hillary Clinton in the White House.  

The wagons of both parties are circling. Congress is making a weak gesture of condemnation of corruption but they know if Hillary falls so goes those who are culpable with her. All the cards will begin to tumble as prosecution deals are made. The identities of those actually named in alleged political and private corruption have direct ties to those in Washington and it is they who have the most to lose. These names are near or at the top of some of our most respected National institutions and Federal Departments such as the FBI’s James Comey and the Justice Departments Loretta Lynch, both of who had close personal and professional ties to the Clinton Foundation and  Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton and her Husband Bill Clinton.  There have been shallow denials that even for the most staunch of supporters found difficult to believe. 

The centuries old practice of placing the blame on competitive political organizations was ineffective because it became obvious to logical thinkers that the corruption was within both parties and had been active for generations. General Colin Powell who has made a career based on doing what he was told to do and staying out of the way harvested his appointment as Secretary of State under a Republican administration. Since then he has been virtually invisible and yet even he was sucked into the Clinton aberration when his personal email was hacked.

 And to pour salt on Powell’s wound, Hillary Clinton responded by claiming that he (Powell) advised her on how to keep her email system from the public. Clinton infers that her private email cannot be illegal if the good General did the same thing, and she in fact says that Powell coached her as to how to keep her emails from the public (and the Government).  In reality, its doubtful that Powell had anything to do with Clinton or her email system. Its just not his style and its apparent that neither he nor Hillary know much about securing email.

As far as the Anonymous people are concerned the information that is being pursued legally by legitimate corruption watchdog organizations is ok, but its too slow.  This became evident when it was learned in late 2015 that Hillary Clinton had not used the normally used secure Federal email system and instead was using a personal system out of her home. This was discovered when an unidentified “black hat” hacker known only as Guccifer who is also alleged to have ties to the Russian Government  decided to illegally accessed the email of one of Clinton’s advisors, Sidney Blumenthal. Guccifer has since been identified and had this to say about Clinton’s email server. “Mrs. Clinton’s server was like ‘an open orchid on the internet..there were hundreds of folders”  “The hacking was easy..easy for me for everybody”

 An orchid? The Clinton family is familiar and one might argue comfortable with corruption but few were prepared for what was about to occur. The Anonymous FBI informant was correct. The story was not about the Clinton email but the Clinton Foundation. And the Clinton emails turned out to be a super highway to and from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton , Bill Clinton and his Clinton Family Foundation.

As soon as this information became public on almost every avenue on the internet, more hacking occurred and then more leaks. The watch dog organizations Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch Inc. quickly  went to the Federal Courts to get the emails legally claiming the Freedom of Information Act.  The Federal courts had already ordered the FBI to produce some of the Clinton emails years ago but  the FB I was refusing, claiming there were too many of them, or they didn’t have the manpower and once the FBI claimed they had lost them.

Additionally the Justice Department appeared in a separate Federal Court on behalf of the State Department. The Department of Justice officials filed a motion in federal court seeking a 27-month delay in producing correspondence between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s four top aides and officials with the Clinton Foundation and Teneo Holdings, a closely allied public relations firm that Bill Clinton helped launch.

If the court permits the delay, the public won’t be able to read the communications until October 2018, about 22 months into her prospective first term as President.

If there is any doubt about who is calling the shots in Washington, it’s not the Justice Department. What prosecutor would ask a  judge for a delay for the accused  in producing subpoenaed evidence? That’s exactly what has happened in Federal Court.  It appears the Clintons are using the Justice Department to assist in their defense.

But the Federal Criminal court is not the only hound dog on the Clinton trail. As far back as 2008 there was a Federal Rico Act racketeering civil complaint  filed in  the United States Federal Court Southern District of Florida by Freedom Watch (watch dog organization) against Hillary, Bill, Chelsea Clinton and the Clinton Foundation.  After reading this complaint the question is why was this not filed with the court asking for a Criminal Grand Jury indictment? Possibly because the agency that investigates for Federal Grand Jury is the Justice Department and everyone knows at this time the FBI or Justice Department will not prosecute the Clintons.

By many accounts its now too late for Clinton who obviously took the action on her own to use a  private email server to keep her emails from public and Governmental  scrutiny . It was a big mistake and now the cat is out of the bag. Information began to pour into trusted internet sites such as Wiki leaks,  The Guardian, and others. The FBI was literally forced by political pressure into a Clinton Email investigation.  We now know how that investigation turned out.  This enticing question has never been formally asked, “Why would a United States Secretary of State want to keep her emails from falling into the hands of the Government she represented and swore an oath to?”

As information and documents began to become public, so did information from internet sleuths about old cases that had long since been forgotten or were considered irrelevant. The Clinton Foundation was cited by an Anonymous informant who claimed to be an FBI employee as a corrupt organization that’s size was “enormous” and included members of almost “everyone in Washington”.

This informant claimed that interested Anonymous investigators should disregard the Clinton emails and concentrate on the Clinton Foundation. Many from the Anonymous community were skeptical of this suggestion but time (a short time) has since validated what this person said. 

The pieces of information from all sources are now falling into place and the picture that is emerging is disheartening.  As is usually the case in these types of situations the resignations are beginning to occur at the bottom of the pile but the big picture includes former presidents as well as Obama who recently said when asked about the FBI refusal to bring a case for prosecution  [The FBI]  The Justice Department is “thoroughly professional and unfettered by politics” and he praised F.B.I. director James Comey’s investigative efforts.

Recently allegations of an eminent  “fixed” election in favor of Hillary Clinton have surfaced first from Donald Trump and then others.  There’s profound evidence of huge amounts of Cash (billions) flowing into this country  from abroad into the Clinton Foundation and this fact alone prompts the suspicion of corruption within our justice department that is difficult to ignore in face of the FBI’s refusal to provide documents to congress and their refusal to bring charges of corruption or malfeasance against Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State. This particular situation hits home as this author is a retired police detective and knows what ‘probable cause’ is and how it is necessary to bring criminal indictments.  

In my view the Hillary Clinton investigation files , should be handed over to a Federal Grand Jury. Let the Grand Jury decide whether  to or not to  indict.  In this case there should be a independent special prosecutor assigned to do what the FBI and Attorney General refuse to do.”  JD Benish

Donald Trump no doubt has his own skeletons. He is in the audience not knowing whether to comment on the situation or back off. Either way, he’s becoming an irrelevant bystander in the big picture. The internet sheriff is just getting started. No matter who wins the election in November the notion is that justice will be done and will have more impact if Hillary Clinton is the new President. After all her husband was impeached for lying and they both know whats possible when sitting in the big chair in Washington.

This country, this republic and our constitution cannot survive with continuing lack of accountability for criminal actions committed against the United States of America that come from the top and continue to the lowest political divisions in the land. It’s necessary that everyone, every single citizen in this country assume  a part in taking back control of our courts and our justice department. The people in office today who have played a significant part in this ongoing corruption and bold contempt of our constitution should be physically removed from office and held for trial.  

We cannot allow our government to continue to imprison the journalists, whistle blowers, bloggers etc:  who risk everything to report on the actions of our government. We must stop the Justice Department from  claiming treason, or terrorism, or anything else they can come up with to justify their actions against journalists and whistle blowers..  We can all begin by letting the FBI, Justice Department, and others know that we will not allow improper arrest and imprisonment of whistle blowers and journalists. Its not the FBI’s duty to determine what news we are allowed to read and what news we are not.  It’s not their duty to make themselves the regulator of information. But it is their duty to bring to justice those who disregard our constitution.

You can protest these actions by either writing your feelings and sending them to an internet news page or letting the government know via the internet that this is unacceptable. You can even do this anonymously.  But we all have a voice that cannot be  stopped. Its no secret that there has been and is now a concerted effort to regulate what is published whether it  be on paper, or on the World Wide Web.









The Clinton Family Foundation Money Laundering History & Philosophy

SUNDAY POST 8-28-2016

Paid Bill Clinton $750,000 received State Department authority

Paid Bill Clinton $750,000 received State Department authority


Most of you who follow my writing, (Twitter Indi pendent- or or the books I have written  know that I’m a retired police detective. I did it for many years. My ability to sniff out the truth is in my bones. I’m much older now but along with age comes certain patience. I became more astute, wary and cunning. I look back to those early police years and realize that as an investigator I really wasn’t honed. I think that those who worked with me thought that I was a good investigator back then but  I wasn’t fully developed. I didn’t have the experience that comes with age and I suspect that’s the way it was supposed to be.  My truth back then was sometimes not a truth you could hang your hat on. It was a truth good enough for the courts or for my supervisors, but sometimes I had my doubts. Sometimes it was not a conscionable truth.

Today is now, and now the things I believe to be the truth are real things. Things or happenings are realities that cannot be disputed in my mind. The things I believe in are not things like a coincidence. This is a word to describe the belief that things just happen and really don’t mean anything like an  accident or  luck or fate.  I know now that there are no such things and the word coincidence should be synonymous with delusion. Coincidences are a way of justifying what we cannot explain or prove.  Good investigators take the word coincidence out of their vocabulary.  The media pundits and politicians would have us believe what isn’t reality.

That being said, there is a term.  A legal term. A term that is used in criminal law to justify certain criminal actions, such as explaining the reason for a search warrant or an arrest. This term is ‘probable cause’.  This term could be the opposite of coincidence.  So in the US legal system the word coincidence or accident or fate would not be used in a sworn affidavit to justify arresting someone or filing criminal charges against someone or searching someone. But the term ‘probable cause’ is not only  used to justify the above, it is required by the law.  James Comey told us there was no ‘probable cause’ to charge Hillary.  He said that her actions were “bad judgement” and not criminal actions.  I ask you how many bank robbers are in jail for using “bad judgment ” when they entered a bank wearing a mask and brandishing a gun. How many of these bandidos went to prison yelling and screaming “I didn’t commit a crime, it was all a mistake, it was only my bad judgement.” The answer  is all of them went to prison and the probable cause to get them in a criminal court was their location in the bank, the mask they were wearing and the gun they were carrying.’  A reasonable person would think that they probably went into the bank to rob it.  Yes it was bad judgement, but it was also a crime.

Probable cause means that something “probably happened’ based upon statements, evidence, police officers experience  and sometimes some lesser described reasons.  Probable cause is a subjective term and could be disputed by some people but ultimately our law says a judge decides what ‘probably happened’ and what did not. The law says that when the judge is deciding this, he must put on his ‘average and normal’ human being hat and think like one when making probable cause decisions.  James Comey, the man who is in charge of the elite of the elite police agencies in our country made statements that Hillary Clintons actions  don’t equate to “probable cause”  No police investigator worth a salt in this country believes James Comey. I dont think his subordinates believe him either.

And now I’ll get to the real point of all this.  I’m a true independent voter. I vote each term for the person I think is best qualified to be president and who I believe will represent the people of the United States above all other things, except the US Constitution.

I began looking into the two candidates for president about 6 months ago.  When I say “looking into” I mean doing research on the internet.  I’m a very firm believer that if you want to get as close to the truth about something as you can, you will not find it by listening to the radio, watching tv or reading the rags they call news papers.  You will not find it on the internet mainstream posts they call news either.  I have a list of many internet sources that I believe provide unbiased independent information about politics, criminal activity, and personal information about candidates.  When I say biased, or unbiased I mean that the opinions, facts and history provided is backed up with some kind of proof and is not blank uninformative gossip, or statements that are not based on some type of research or fact. Biased information comes from mainstream media who are lining their pockets with money from political action committees or the candidates themselves and these types of information sources use the word coincidence or luck or accident frequently. You all know they type of propaganda I describe.

And so 6 months ago I began digging in depth into Trump, Clinton, Cruz and some of the others. In my mind two of these three were going to be the candidates for president. First I looked at Cruz because I believed like most that Trump was not going to make the cut. I discovered that Cruz “Probably was not a US Citizen” based on my research into his mother’s birth certificate. I wrote about my findings.  I felt like that was enough research on Mr. Cruz for me. If this guy would lie and produce an obviously forged birth certificate, he wasn’t going to get my vote.  Then came Trump. Trump was a little more difficult to get information on because his whole history was in private enterprise.  There is no ‘Freedom of Information Act,’ available to assist in getting information from private enterprize.  Trump had some questionable things in his history alright. But nothing that I would categorize as ‘probable cause’ of fraud etc:  But I knew that most likely  I didn’t know all there was to know either.  The plus for Trump to me was that he wasn’t a professional politician who made a living off of the Federal budget and the deep pockets of people whom he could befriend and do ‘favors’ for.

Then came the Clintons.  I use their name in the plural because I think it’s very naive to think otherwise. I realized that I knew very little about Hillary and Bill’s claim to fame.  The memory that I placed importance on was that Bill was impeached for being a dipshit. I’ll never forget watching Hillary on television denying all the allegations leveled at Bill by numerous young ladies. She lost my respect for her  then because I believed she had no respect for herself.  To me she was the submissive woman Bill was married to and was afraid to speak the truth.  I was wrong thinking she was submissive.

I began with Hillary’s stint on the Nixon Water Gate investigation Committee.  She was a 27 year young aggressive attorney who was allegedly asked to leave the Committee by a guy named Zeifman that was apparently not based on any kind of probable cause but as he stated she was guilty of ‘questionable or improper behavior’.    It appears that Hillary has not denied nor addressed anything he or others said or wrote about her during those early years except to say that she “was not fired” and although Zeifman at first stated he fired Hillary later admitted he did not have the authority to fire her so he couldn’t have fired her..  Credible sources do not disagree with Zeifman but the allegations’ of lying, falsifying records  etc still persist..  Rather than to continue to look into this to learn whether or not she was fired, or whether or not she was involved in some other type of legal shenanigans…. the bottom line is that her first documented high echelon position of importance as a lawyer and her first chance to establish her character and morality is shrouded in cloak and dagger accusations by fellow Democrats.  All this achieved at the young age of 27. Similar accusations are and have been in the cards since.  Very soon after her Watergate experience she moved in with Bill Clinton and they were later married.

Bill Clinton got himself elected as the Arkansas Attorney General then elected as the Governor of Arkansas. It appears that during his and Hillary’s time during the Arkansas Governorship allegations of misconduct, malfeasance, corruption and even Murder skyrocketed and continued into his tenure as President.

I began to look into some of the allegations to include the Clinton’s involvement in the Barry Seal Mena Arkansas drug trade, the transfer of 50 million from Arkansas to a bank in Fuji and the murder of two teenage boys who happened to stumble on a drug deal in progress in Arkansas. (Bill Clinton later characterized the “mistake” his state coroner made when he ruled the boys cause of death as a drug overdose by simply saying the coroner was “over worked and probably tired”.) Clinton didn’t think the new ruling of murder was enough to reopen the investigation. Then there was the Rose Law firm where Hillary was a partner. The firm was at the heart of the Whitewater land scandal, and there was much more. The list of possible Clinton crimes  kept getting longer and longer and became too long for me to devote time to it.  It would be a huge undertaking and anyway there were already numerous books written about the Clinton Arkansas era of alleged Organized crime involvement.  These scandals and more continued into Bill Clinton’s presidency and it was obvious to me that Hillary was at the very least his partner and at best the CEO of their enterprises.  The web of deceptions, and under the table business deals and political funding via Political Action Committees, banks, off shore accounts, etc;  was so elaborately convoluted that it would take a virtual task force to follow the money from all of the sources to the Clintons.  It looked  to me like the Washington investigators were getting close when in 1997 Ken Starr began his investigation into the sudden death of a long time  Clinton crony Vince Foster.  It was that same year, 1997 that Bill and Hillary Clinton changed their tactics and founded the “Clinton Foundation”.  As an investigator I sometimes solved crimes with the old “what would I do in that situation” technique.  I believe that the Clintons made a calculated decision to stop in their tracks and leave Ken Starr  hanging with nothing to go on.. By that I mean, Starr was getting close, maybe the FBI and Justice Department were too. If your a culprit being trailed, you will want to  lose your tracks, walk down a flowing creek, or cross a creek by walking over a log bridge so you don’t leave a trail. Do you get the picture? The Clinton Foundation was created to cover them and allow them to fry bigger fish.  I reasoned that they would launder money via the Clinton Foundation by claiming that it’s a Charitable Organization.  The Clinton Foundation is not a charitable foundation. Its a non profit corporation and serves as a Clinton Family Bank but they want everyone to think its there to distribute funds to the needy underprivileged. . Now this Clinton Foundation might be  something I could sink my teeth into.   Instead of following the money, I would go to the recipient,  the Foundation and track the money backwards.  Why was the donation made to the foundation and who made it and what was done to justify say 10 million dollars?   Other investigative sources began doing the same thing, in different ways.  The Judicial Watch Organization is doing wonderful things with the Freedom of information laws and using the courts to enforce the Clintons’ to produce records.

The Foundation money collection and washing philosophy works this way.  Imagine a  donor who needs a Washington favor and donates  100 million to the foundation.  It doesn’t matter much  where the money comes from as long as it is from some sort of business that has no intimate association with the Clintons or the ‘Foundation’ The Clintons will not receive any of the 100 million directly except that the Donor will also agree to hire Bill or Hillary as a speaker. One of them  will receive these agreed to funds as payment for their service.  In the mean time their “Family Foundation” grows, and grows and grows and later the money will be distributed to another source that will most likely be out of the country and finally distributed to the Clinton family.  In return Bill, as US President will grant you a wish or favor.  In their minds there’s no proof that either one of them  has done anything illegal since they did not receive money personally other than the speaking fees. (this is a money trail and even if its legal it draws attention to the donor.) The favor granted to the donor will be duly concealed (as much as possible) as a normal performance of  the duty of President or in Hillary’s case as Secretary of State.  I find it difficult to believe that this finely tuned criminal enterprise operated under the nose of President Obama without his knowledge. In fact there’s an early indication that he did have advanced knowledge of what was to happen should he appoint Hillary Clinton Secretary of State and so the Obama transition team created a “Memo of Understanding”  between the The Clinton Foundation and  Obama’s transition team to sign  as if it was the Clinton Foundation who was going to be appointed the Secretary of State before he ever took office and another ethics document was to be  signed the following year by the Hillary Clinton after she was in the Secretary of State chair. Both docs were meant to cover Obama’s ass in the future should anyone become suspicious and look into Hillary’s or Bill’s reception of funds while Federal employees. . A year later 2010 the Clinton Foundation received $500,000 from Algeria.  These documents have recently been resurrected in light of the possibility that Mrs. Clinton be elected President. But even now, the ho opla about the documents seems to be that the Clinton Foundation signed the documents as a vehicle to protect the State Department.  Obama hasn’t yet commented on the two documents and for good reason. Theses docs actually were conceived and one actually signed  prior to appointing  Hillary as Secretary of State before Obama took office. Hillary had not yet assumed the position so Obama was making sure he was protected as President once Hillary was appointed as Secretary of State the next year.  Its kind of like Obama and possibly some in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee knew what was going to happen so he wanted to be certain that the fence was around him and locked before he unleashed the dog.

And whats Hillary Clintons people have to say about all this? Its seems that they don’t really understand how Hillary can  be held responsible for something an Aid said or did.  I guess they believe  rats will not eat each other too.

I believe that the Clintons knew that the only way they could continue to extract money from the system and keep themselves out of jail it would be if one of them is in the White House or holds a position in the Presidential cabinet for two reasons.

1.) It was imperative that they maintain influence in the Justice Department to stall, avoid or abate any investigation into their Foundation activities and

2.) If one or the other didn’t have this influence their house of cards risk extinction and even worse they could be indicted for their crimes. Its against the law to open a storefront selling favors to people who want to avoid prosecution themselves or avoid complying with Federal law on US Government land and staff the store with US Government employees.

When Hillary was at risk of losing the Presidential nomination to Barack Obama in the primary elections their situation suddenly was in extreme peril.  Rather than risk everything by losing the primary democratic election to Obama they decided to ‘make a deal’ with him. Nothing illegal about that is there?  Hillary would back off and virtually guarantee Obama’s nomination on the Democratic ticket and in return Obama would protect them and give Hillary the cabinet position of Secretary of State.  Bill Clinton must have thought it was Christmas. Now instead of only 8 years in power via Obama, they potentially would have another 16 years. Eight years with Obama and another 8 years with Hillary as president.  16 years of carnage and destruction were on their horizon.  But there’s more, after Hillary’s 8 years there will be Chelsea Clinton.

The deal was done and eight years later Hillary has her hands full. There has been many deals and millions going into their family bank account, (the Clinton Foundation), but neither Bill nor Hillary anticipated that their emails would be hacked or given up under the Freedom of Information Act.  The information about their criminal activity is being exposed now almost every day despite the stalling of their friends. First the Department of Justice Thomas Perez, then Loretta Lynch, and most recently James Comey of the FBI.  All protected the Clintons and  refused to bring charges against them. But thanks to the Justice Integrity Project and the Judicial Watch Organization, the heat is on the Clintons and its getting hotter. The extent of the granting of ‘favors’ for contributions by Hillary Clinton when serving as Secretary of State is almost beyond comprehension.  And Hillary and Bill were forced to get the Justice Department (Loretta Lynch) to petition the Federal court to stop or delay producing incriminating evidence (emails to and from the Clinton Foundation) until  after the election (27 months after)  because the emails might be “Classified Documents”. So Hillary (via Loretta Lynch) who has previously stated she didn’t have any Classified  type emails in her private server is now telling the Federal  court that not only did she  have them but her family owned bank, the ‘Clinton Foundation’ has them too and therefore the should not be released.   Can you imagine someone asking the FBI to petition the court to stop themselves (the FBI) from accessing information relative to criminal activity?   That’s exactly what the Clintons did.  And recently it appears that the FBI might be protecting themselves because the scuttlebutt is that some of the ‘to and from’ emails to  the Clinton Foundation  might have the names of people in the Justice Department.

Based on my many years filing affidavits to courts to accept charges or requesting prosecution  at almost every level  I know what probable cause is and in my view there is more than probable cause in most of the allegations against the Clintons to file charges. The problem is that the agencies and  persons who are supposed to be representing us, the citizens of the US are no longer representing us, they are representing the Clintons and themselves.

Signs that something else isn’t right. 

Since Hillary Clinton entered the presidential race the pollsters have shown her anywhere (depending on the poll and the State etc) from one point ahead of Trump and Sanders to as high as 10 points yet her average body count at a rally is 1,000 people. Trump’s average is 20,000 plus.

Finally my intuition tells me that Hillary and Bill Clinton are crooks and the best of the two presidential candidates  is Donald Trump. My intuition also tells me that if the Clintons have enough in their bag to control our Justice Department they can certainly get major polling companies to publish “friendly” poll results or even manipulate the election.  I think that history tells us  that the most popular person is the person who wins elections and popularity is exhibited in the number of people who show up to see, talk to and listen to the candidates.


Please listen to your mind and logic when voting at the polls.








Trump -A Gamble that has Received over 13 Million Bets-

SUNDAY POST 8/14/2016

web post.

JD- Codefore Publishing

It’s an undeniable truth. Our options  for president this year are not the best. We have two candidates who just don’t completely meet basic requirements, 1. Honesty,Professional 2.Qualifications, 3.Character,and 4. Morality. It’s debatable which of these basic human attributes is the most important. Ideally we would expect our president to have them all.

One might argue that my twitter post (Indi Pendent) has been biased and  posting all anti Democratic information. This is mostly true, but not because I am a Democrat or political party biased. In 58 voting years I have always been an independent. I voted for Obama twice. He disappointed me  in many ways especially in his second term. I  believe that the last several presidential choices have been a choice between two evils and in my humble opinion Obama was the least evil of his two terms.

Today (this election cycle)  the Republicans are forced to suffer for their past actions. If, during President Obama’s term the Republicans could raise enough support to advocate the “shutting down” of our government not once but twice  in an act born out of spite I think voters are asking themselves  what in the hell would these maniac’s do with a Republican president? To make bad things worse for themselves the hard core senior Republicans and their financial backers don’t like the reason they are in presidential contention.  (Trump) Its obvious Trump is not a Republican insider and maybe not even a real Republican. Just ask one of them. The Republican Czars would rather see Trump in one of their soup lines than representing their party. So what we remember about the Republican party when we are in the voting booths is that they wanted to shut down the country because they didnt like the outcome of two elections and now they hate their candidate.  

So I keep putting up my seldom read posts in the hope that some readers will vote independently and vote at least partly because of the information I put forth every week. 

But I am concerned that we have lost our choices. What I mean by that is that it appears that the choices we have for president  are both very risky and neither candidate has the necessary character or experience to lead this country back to what it was founded on..  It’s common knowledge that our political system is infested with liars and if the candidate can’t be trusted to tell the truth when running for election, can we really expect a sudden change when president?   The answer is no. We are in part to blame for the deterioration of our country. We have become complacent, ignorant of important issues, lazy and most dangerously, too many people vote straight party lines.  To vote for straight party candidates no matter who is running  is not only an ‘I don’t care who is president attitude it’s a recipe for the collapse of our Federalism. Its just plain sheep following the herder over the cliff.  Its also a signal that the intelligence of our populace is depreciating.

The reason that Donald Trump has risen to the top of the Republican barrel of apples is not because he is a good Republican nor is it because he is most qualified.  His character, morality and honesty has not been necessarily verified but neither has he been shown not to have these good qualities  . So he’s a gamble isn’t he?  He is a gamble that has received over 13 million popular bets, more than any other candidate of any party in the history of the United States Elections.  I believe the reason is that independent thinkers in all political factions want a change. They want politics with a conscience. We want a quality  president who’s goal is to serve the constitution and the people.  Obviously if that’s correct they cannot vote for the Clintons. I say plural because the notion that Bill Clinton’s partnership with his wife Hillary does not play into this election is a notion consumed with naivety.Bill & Hillary 7

And so back to the admittance that I have been constantly posting and tweeting about the Clintons to the point of being considered a ‘one sided journalist’. It’s because I feel a patriotic duty to scream “The Red Coats are coming” to those of you who are not aware of the complete  Clintons history, or are not paying attention to the biggest issue in this election. Its not jobs, its not our economy, its not experience. Its plain and simple honesty, integrity, and morality. The Clintons do not have any of these qualities. and it’s  so easy to find proof of this, even on Federal Documents,  that I think there are some that assume its not true..  It only takes a few minutes of a good Google search to be reminded of the constant inference of corruption in almost everything that the Clintons have done for over 30 years beginning with Bill Clintons Viet Nam draft dodging with the help of his friend Senator Fullbright.  Bill and Hillary’s histories are not without some good accomplishments but these political accomplishments in the name of ritchousness when fullfilling their elected positions were similar to accidents that happened while traveling their road to political power. Most of the time it was them who was being investigated and scrutinized. They are like the Al Capone mob who couldn’t be pinned down to an actual crime so the Feds created a law “tax evasion and later the organized crime act” just so they could get guys like Capone.  

Al Capone

Al Capone

 In the Clinton’s case, laws are created by congress  to make their activities legal (the opposite of Capone laws)  such as the new non profit corporation laws or the Political Campaign finance laws that allow millions of dollars to filter into non profit corporations and then into the pockets of people like the Clintons and their “Foundation”.  The difference in the to types of laws, Capone laws and  Clinton laws is that the tax evasion laws applied to all us citizens, and  the political and finance  laws to legalize illegal activities usually only apply to the politicians.  So if you and I violated these laws we would go to jail.  But even in ideal situations where actual laws that were created to protect US citizens and our Federalism, prosecution isn’t being pursued because the prosecutors are in someones pocket.

Compared to Hillary Clinton and her husband Bill, if Trump’s history is at all skeptical, he is still a minor league participant in the world of corruption, deception, and legal thievery. Most likely this is because he doesn’t have 30 years experience in political  skulduggery like the Clintons.

Hilary and her group, (yes Hillary) is being and has been in the past, protected and she and Bill have stayed clear of honest successful criminal investigations by owning the investigators and judicial in whatever jurisdiction they happen to be in. This time it’s the US Federal Jurisdiction. How is it possible to have so much control that even our own Justice Department has been rendered irrelevant?

US Attorney General Loretta Lyncy

 After a little more research time it’s fairly obvious that James Comey (FBI) and Loretta Lynch (US Attorney General-Justice Department) are a part of the Clinton protection and there’s no doubt in my mind that there are a few Federal Judges in the mix too. (just in case). To add insult to injury, the political takeover of our justice system is public information and we the voters have become irrelevant to the Clintons. They don’t care who knows. As Hillary would say when testifying about Benghazi “What difference does it make?”  I am personally enraged at her audacity. I did my time in the military I spent almost 20 years in public service as a cop, I’m still trying to help society when I can at almost 70 years old and what do I or anyone else have to show for our support of our country?  Hillary and Bill Clinton possibly in the White House?  Its an insult to mankind.

To understand their legal Teflon is to understand their relationship. Hillary pointed Bill in a direction, Bill followed it, albeit he had a few diversions, and he still ended up as President of the United States.  During all the political and money grabbing  on the path to the Presidency, Hillary had Bill’s back but in reality it has always been  her real ambition and nemesis to be the first female president of the United States. She always felt that  she should be the president, not Bill.

But she lacked his smooth talking southern drawl and ear to ear back slapping smile. I’m convinced that during Bill’s impeachment the playing on words and later the concealment of actions through united diversified corporate conglomerates existed at Hillary’s direction.

Eight years ago she believed it was her time. But there was a complication. She had strong competition and its name was Barrack Obama. She didn’t like the odds. Time was closing in and she would rather back off than take the chance of losing to the first Black American running for President. Her exit would cost Obama heavily and the deal was made. She would prepare for eight years and then it would be her time.

The money kept rolling in, not directly to their pockets but into places she controlled. Many deals must have been made on her promises.  In her mind, becoming the Secretary of State under Barrack Obama put her on the map. It replaced her weak claim that being first lady was enough experience to be president. She handed out favors and government positions as Arkansas First Lady , and then later as the US Presidents First Lady and then the deal was made with Barrack Obama. She would become Secretary of State.  Its possible she wanted the VP position. We will probably never know.

She didn’t care about actually being the  Sec. of State. She just wanted to continue playing political monopoly at home using her own desk, her own phone and her own email system. She wanted to do her Secretary of State time , put the Secretary of State diploma in her desk and get back to the business of becoming the first female president. She began to build her hierarchy in Washington. When Hillary finally  arrived in Washington the Justice Department became  Justice for Hillary and no one else. For bowing to Hillary and Obama James Comey became an international embarrassment and tarnished the institution.

So here we are in 2016.  It’s the United States political arena but it might as well be Arkansas. Hillary has made a down payment on Washington without a single vote and all she needs to complete ownership is the real-estate and the high backed chairs. Their deeds in Arkansas have long since been swept under the rug and so will the current deeds as long as Obama is in office and her bedfellows James Comey  and Loretta Lynch keep investigators at bay and do as they are told.  J. Edgar has no doubt rolled over.

The Clinton fortune is protected by the Clinton Foundation so that no matter what the future holds, they have their money and Hillary knows that when it comes down to it she can always buy her freedom. However her greatest fear must cause her a lot of stress, agitation and trepidation.  What if she loses the election?  Is Trump actually her competition to the White House or possibly has a deal already been signed and sealed with him? Hillary certainly acts as if she isn’t concerned about losing at all. “Of course I’m going to be President” she said.

As a note to support my suppositions. Loretta Lynch (US Attorney General)  comes from the law offices of Hogan & Hartson, Hillary’s old law firm who also represents MX Logic Inc who has a patient  on the private email system used by Hillary as Secretary of State.   James Comey (FBI) was employed by HSBC- (Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation and an Associate of the Clinton Foundation ) and its suspected that HSBC is associated with off shore Sanwa Bank, now United California Bank. Its believed that   Sanwa Bank received hundreds of millions of dollars from money laundering operations in Arkansas when Clinton was Governor. Cheryl Mills  (Hillarys Secretary of State  assistant) is also from   Hogan & Hartson and Cheryl defended Bill Clinton during his impeachment proceedings.. Huma Aberden, husband of Anthony Weiner (New York fame) worked at  Tenso Holdings (created by Bill Clinton) and Sandy Berger deceased was (Hillary’s  other Secretary of State assistant who also plead guilty to removing Top Secret documents from the National Archives)  and was  also from Hogan & Hartson.  However these people are just gnats in the Clinton web. 



BREAKING Revolution in Mexico?


Protests in Mexico 2016

Protests in Mexico 2016

The below photo’s  come from media boots on the ground via cell phones. An attempt to keep photos and reporting  from the Mexican and US public, is ongoing. Its reported that Google is blocking pictures. Sources say that the incident began with a peaceful demonstration because of recent changes in Mexican laws that relate to the performance of Mexican teachers.

One side often sees the other as union-busting corporate reformers who’ve never been inside an actual classroom yet are hell-bent on reducing all learning to meaningless, time-destroying tests and evaluations. The other, at its worst, portrays its opponents as parasitic, lazy, abusive teachers who care more about their benefits package than the children they’re supposed to be educating. Both are dangerous, inaccurate distortions that keep divisions within the education community fresh and festering. The Slate

However Codefore has learned from actual teachers, parents and others that the straw that broke the camels back was the 2013 requirement that all teachers take a monthly written test and if this test is not passed to the government reviewers satisfaction, there would be no paycheck.  The teachers say these subjective tests given to them by  a corrupt government and that their monthly paychecks are being stolen by the Mexican government.

The teachers in Oaxaca have the support of parents the medical profession and  local business who have since closed their doors. Teacher representatives say that the general strike will not end unless the government stops the withholding of pay checks.  There have been reported 6 deaths as a result of the ongoing violence.

But now the protest in Oaxaca has  turned physical when Government Military, and additional police arrived to curb and  put an end to the protest.  This is not the first time that there has been an uprising in Oaxaca. In 2006 there was a similar uprising but the current demonstration is profoundly different  in that the teachers union is supported by the Medical and Business community in defiance of the new teacher requirements imposed by the Mexican Government.  Leaders of the protesting teachers have been arrested.  The government claims 21 injured policemen, 3 injured by gunfire.

In response to the arrest and gunfire by the police and military spokespersons for the demonstrators  have called for a general revolt against the Mexican Government.  The protests and violence has since spread to the Mexican cities of Michoacan, CD DE Mexico, Los Cabos St. Lucas, Guerreo, San Pablo Huitzo and Santiaguito.  One citizen told sources, “If Mr. Guzman were free he would take care of the corrupt government.”

Are We lost if Clinton and Trump are the Best we can do?


A Boomer’s Thoughts of the past and the future .

An epic and profound national election is upon us. Not since the mid 60’s has there been such turbulence in Washington coupled with dissatisfaction in not only the office holders  but in those who aspire to hold office.  No one predicted that so many Republicans and Democrats would shed their allegiance including some of the Republican leadership.  It would have been a good year to introduce a third political party but alas it’s too late for this years election.

The boomer 60’s had one president resign amid threats of impeachment, one president who refused to run for a second term, and of course Viet Nam.  But discord , anxiety ,constant scandals, and cronyism didn’t stop with the 60’s and the end of the Viet Nam war.   In 1998 President Clinton was impeached. and we, the United States have been in some type of “un-declared” war ever since Vietnam.  In fact war has been so frequent and ongoing that Congress created a shortcut to war by Congressional declaration by passing the “Patriot Act”  Why should Congress or Washington be bothered with involving the US Citizens in War type decisions and  why must congress consult with each other when they can’t even agree on what’s for breakfast?  So now  thanks to President George W. Bush, we have the “Patriot Act” and this all inclusive bill was passed in support of the need for a final declaration of War.  War  against Terrorism as if Terrorism is a tangible thing or living being or a nation of people. Terrorism is basically everything our government wants it to be including us, the Citizen.  So technically the US is at war with whoever our leaders in Washington point their finger at and the Patriot Act  has been renewed and or supported by every single congress and President since Bush.   We are in a perpetual state of war and we have had perpetual military actions in a multitude of countries  ever since we had our ass handed to us in a hand basket in Saigon on April 30th, 1975.

Fall of Saigon

Fall of Saigon

So here we are in 2016, trying to decide who is the best of the best that our country can come up with for President. (I use the words “our country can come up with” ) loosely because its becoming increasingly clear that it’s the two political parties who get to choose who the next president will be, not the populace of the good ole USA.  If these parties don’t like the choice that their membership votes for, they might just change the rules and the candidates.  We are ruled by a mob that surpasses the audacity, and corruption of the old mobs in Chicago and New York and there is no good solution to this in sight.

Here’s our choices to lead our country.

Hillary Clinton, who stood by her husband’s innocence of any wrong doing with intern Monica Lewinski, now aspires to lead this country as did her husband president Bill Clinton. By the way, Bill Clinton’s checkered history in office was unjustly over shadowed by Monica Lewinsky when the press should have honed in on Clinton’s other activities such as the Somalia military failure and the dragging through the streets of Mogadishu  of two dead and naked us soldiers MSG Gordon and SFC Shughart.Mogadishu murder

Not to be out performed by her husband Bill Clinton, United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s  coup de grace  was the murder and the dragging of US Diplomat Chris Stevens through the streets in Libya on September 11, 2012.  Hillary apparently didn’t know why this incident happened and doesn’t know where her emails referencing this incident disappeared to either.

Hillary and Bills eyebrow raising activities go way back and are too numerous to explain individually unless one endeavors to write a book. But don’t believe that because Bill’s activities came first as Governor of Arkansas and then as a US President that Hillary was innocently doing nothing but being Bill’s  home maker.  Hillary Rodham was only 27 when she was “terminated” from a House Judiciary Committee investigating Watergate. The reasons for her termination are varied but there are allegations  by members of the Committee that she “was a dishonest lawyer.” Sometime after that Hillary formed some sort of relationship with Bill Clinton and their scandals flourished.

On the other side of the fence we have Donald Trump.  It seems that in some ways we have gone from one end of the spectrum of outrageous to the other.. It would be difficult to dispute that Mr. Trump is a successful businessman, albeit his success has come from shrewd  business dealings.

It would also be difficult to dispute that Mr. Trump is not a Rhodes scholar, or a politician.  Although there probably are segments of politics in his shrewd dealings.  It is becoming apparent that he did not realize nor is he prepared for confronting a National Press and becoming a part of a political system that is driven by dealings in smoke filled rooms, and legal maneuverings that are at a minimum borderline illegal.  Although Mr. Trump may be  familiar with maneuvering through the huge legal requirements and restrictions that keep his massive business empire functioning, this is nothing compared to becoming a part of the long Washington passenger  train that’s full passengers who call themselves  congress that was elected to do what’s right for the country. Its difficult to imagine that one man can stop this. Its also difficult to believe that Trump can make such an accomplishment as it would be difficult for a man much the superior of Donald Trump to get this train on the right track to successful representation of the Constitution and the electorate.  In fact the deck has been stacked against such an honorable mission undertaken by anyone and the passengers of this train that has run a muck will not allow an un-anointed party representative to enter  their locomotive.

Just as in the 60’s when the public had had enough of the war in Viet Nam, the public today has had enough of the “Patriot Act” , the openly brazen declaration of war by Congress against the Citizens of the United States, and the depletion of the natural resources, bank accounts and moral fiber of our Country. There are third world countries that have better roads and transportation systems  than exists in the US.  In hind sight, it was probably easier to stop the war in Viet Nam than it will be to stop our runaway Congressional train.

Trump is no angel and has scandals too.  His lack of finesse and information about what reality in this country really is has been the root of his many verbal gaffs.  He has a reputation of “stiffing” people who contracted with him for services or materials and his ex wife Evana had used the word “rape” in a civil deposition during the divorce proceedings. .

In 1980 there was the “Undocumented Polish Worker scandal. Trump was found guilty of conspiring to not pay for the workers contributions to pensions and welfare funds and some question whether or not these workers were paid at all.  Like Hillary Clinton, Trump denied knowing anything about the Polish Workers.

Trump has been the recipient of discrimination lawsuits going back to the 70’s and has actually publicly defended Bill Clinton’s sexual indiscretions .  But search as we may, as stated above, its difficult  to compare anything known about  allegations leveled at Trump to the Clinton’s activities and its also difficult if not impossible to delineate any believable difference in culpability between Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton except for Hillary’s association with the Congressional Watergate investigation committee.  One reason for the lack of scandalous information on Donald Trump is that he is not a politician, and therefore prior to his running for president the Media just wasn’t interested in him, except when he  announced a new marriage.

As poor as our choice for president this year is, I believe the choice of the least harmful is clear. But there are still those who always vote party lines no matter who is on the ballot and a large amount of the burden of responsibility for our poor presidential choices fall on these people.

But people are breaking away from their party affiliations by the millions. They see Donald Trump as more of an independent than a Republican.  In truth he probably is.  His whole business career has been spent crooning and wooing Presidents and Congressmen  of both parties.  Staying away from the polls should not be a third option.









A Kauai Cover Up to Protect Police and Prosecutor Keeps a Killer Free. Update: 9-04-2015

A Kauai Cover Up to Protect Police and Prosecutor Keeps a Killer Free. Update: 9-04-2015


BREAKING:  UPDATE 05-09-2017  What are you thinking Judge? Does  the request for a Grand Jury that came from a citizen and not the Justice Department mean its not a valid request and therefore  the Supreme Court Rules don’t apply?  We think not!!! You should refer to the Courts definition of “document”

Judge Seabright’s court claims the Benish  Affidavit was verbally assigned or passed to the US Attorney’s office and below Agent Schwalb says she was eventually able to determine that someone in the FBI office received or heard of the Affidavit and she assumed it was reviewed but doesn’t know what action was taken. And there is no paper trail, no case file number and no Federal electronic Pacer identification number. There is nothing to establish the proper assignment of investigation on behalf of the Federal Grand Jury.  So if Codefore goes away so does the investigation?

Did someone sit on the Grand Jury Affidavit. Was it Seabright’s court? or the Hawaii US Attorney’s office? Or the Hawaii FBI?  Seabright’s clerk says she “verbally” notified someone. Doesn’t remember who.  She also said she personally gave the Affidavit to the Grand Jury. The Federal Document processing center Pacer has no record of the Grand Jury, or Seabright’s court documents in reference to this matter as required by law.

Processing a request for a Grand Jury is apparently  on the “Hand Shake” System in Seabright’s court..  (Not a US Supreme Court Rule  authorized document processing system.  Nor is Seabright’s court abiding by Rule 6 of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure.  

On or about 5/4/2017 Formal FOI requests have been sent to the Hawaii US Attorney, the Hawaii FBI office and Judge Seabright’s Court.  It’s unknown what the “Formal” written response will be.  Codefore is anxious for the response and explanations.

Mr. Benish –
I am unable to provide you with copies of the documents you have requested.  There was no court document generated to transmit your affidavit.  As for notification of the matter to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, I personally contacted the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Hawaii.  I did not memorialize my contact with them.

Ms. Abernathy,
Thank you, but maybe I was not articulate. I request the court document transmitting  the affidavit I submitted  to the Grand Jury that includes the date and time. I did not request any kind of court authorization. Possibly the term “Order of the Grant” was misleading.  Since everything that is received by the court becomes a  court document  the court should  have logged in the document and assigned an identifier. In addition, since Judge Seabright is the supervising authority for the Grand Jury I request the Courts notification of this particular case to the Department of Justice / US Attorney District of Hawaii who represents the the government and is advisor to the Grand Jury  where the Grand Jury is convened.. As the Affidavit Affiant and a US Citizen I’m entitled under the 1st Amendment to the Constitution to access the aforementioned documents, unless the Judge has cause not to provide them to me.
The reason for this request is not arbitrary. It has been 14 months since the court received the affidavit. You have referred me to the Department of Justice as the agency to report additional victims to. This implies that the Department of Justice has knowledge of the  Grand Jury and in particular this case does it not?
There is a problem. It seems the Department of Justice has indicated to me that they have no knowledge of this investigation and the FBI has implied the same. That being the case, and since I have no proof that neither of these Departments of Justice have been presented notification of any actions on behalf of me or the Court, it seems the ball is back in Judge Seabright’s lap.
The notion that there is no documentation as to what happened to the Affidavit and other documents after the Court received them is incredulous don’t you agree?  I am disheartened by your reply. Is a more formal request for these documents required? If so, Ill present the necessary formal FOI and First Amendment requests to the Court, the FBI and the Hawaii US Attorney for all documents relating to this investigation  and if the documents don’t exist no doubt there will be an explanation as to  why and by what authority or Rule action on my request has been denied. Or you can provide copies of these two few documents via email and Ill be on my way.

I was able to track down your affidavit with the AUSA’s office and they did in fact refer it to the FBI. I have contacted the squad supervisor of WC-1, whose squad received your information.  I was told that they will review it again.
When I hear something back from WC-1, myself or an Agent from WC-1 will be in touch with you.
Thank you again for your patience,
FBI Special Agent Jessica Schwalb

Seabright’s clerks have communicated to those who inquire that a affidavit request sent to Judge Seabright in Decemer 2015 was  given to the sitting Federal Grand Jury. Albeit, the first and only written  communication from the Judge’s clerks did not include an official District of Hawaii letter head,  there has been no indication that an actual investigation has begun.  As of this date, none of the witnesses have been contacted by the Justice Department, FBI etc: In fact none of the victims have been contacted period.   Some of Codefore’s legal contacts have indicated suspicion as to whether or not there really is an ongoing investigation into Hawaii Corruption.

After reading the below information what do you think?   Is the Federal Judicial District of Hawaii involved in the alleged cover up?  Or do the wheels of Justice turn just slowly ?

UPDATE: 7-31-2016

The wheels of justice can sometimes turn slowly. Received an email from Judge Seabright’s head clerk in answer to questions from Codefore. We have been receiving inquiries about how to get additional complaints included in this Grand Jury investigation. Our question to the Court was, “What shall Codefore do with all this additional information.?”  The below email is their reply. So any and all additional complaints need not be addressed by Codefore. You can send them direct.  Make sure you indicate that your information is to be included in the Affidavit and complaint to the Judge Seabright on January 18th, 2016.  Good luck to you all.

UPDATE: 9-4-15.  Ruff court records have been accessed and copied this week. Two days after the completion of the copied court records, In compliance with the Hawaii Freedom of Information Act, Codefore began to receive more Kauai PD reports from the Kauai Attorneys office. The information sent so far was earlier  denied by the PD.


Sometimes you must take the bad in order to get some good out of a horrible situation A good in this story is that an admitted child rapist was put  in prison in 1993 and very well may stay there for the rest of his life.

The bad in this story is that even though a suspect who admitted to the rape of 4 year old Alicia Woolsey Ruf in Kauai in 1993 was arrested, Lacy’s  murderer was not arrested. The  guy who says he is the murder is Todd Schonlau and he  was not considered a suspect in “93.

1993 Kauai Prosecutor Jay Kimura

1993 Kauai Prosecutor Jay Kimura

In 1993 during the initial investigation into the death of Alicia Ruff (Lacy), Todd Schonlau diverted suspicion away from himself by making a phone call to the police and turning in his brother, Aaron Schonlau for the murder.  “When a seasoned police investigator hears someone turning  in his brother for a murder, this person not the brother generally goes to the top of the suspect list. ”  Todd Schonlau is also the person who took the police to the location of the body. The body was in a  place that no one else knew about but Todd Schonlau. He told investigators that his brother told him where the body was located. The police apparently did not think that this was suspicious.

Investigators know that usually  the only reason people would turn  in their blood is to keep them free from arrest.  Unfortunately in 1993 there were no seasoned police investigators employed by Kauai PD .  In fact, according to others, there were no accredited or properly trained police on the force either.

Another bad thing about this investigation  is that Todd Schonlau most likely will not be sought out and prosecuted for the murder of 4 year old Alicia Ruf.  Why….

AAron Scholnau Hawaii sex offender booking pic

The investigation that led to the arrest of Aaron Schonalu, who admitted to Benish that he sexually assaulted “Lacey” Ruf, was so bad and  so unconstitutional  that today it is being  covered up to keep the 1993 cops, and possibly the prosecutors out of jail or at the very least from some kind of civil litigation.  It’s being covered up because it seems that everyone involved is either a relative of the legal culprits or is politically beholding to them or their heirs as is explained by Anthony Sommer in his book “KPD Blue.”

Another good thing is that fate, circumstances and alcohol opened the door of information and allowed an old worn out police investigator to enter and  have a look around.

One night in 2011 Todd Schonlau who is the older brother of Aaron Schonau got drunk in Oregon and admitted to his then girlfriend that it was he who drowned Lacy Ruf after his brother Aaron had raped her in Kauai in 1993.  He gave her a detailed account of his actions including the statement that  it took him two attempts at weighing her body so that it stayed submerged. This is a detail that will haunt Mr. Schonlau and may someday put him in prison. (Assuming the Kauai PD is ever capable of conducting an unbiased competent investigation)

Valerie Soto web size

The police arrived and arrested Tiffany Kaneko, and charged her with assault.  As they were putting her in handcuffs and leading her to a police car for her trip to jail,  Todd  heard the police ask her why she assaulted him.  The rest is a matter of Kaneko’s arrest record.  Much later the district attorney was  obligated to release Kaneko because their victim (Todd) did not appear in court.Tiffany immediately called her friend Valerie Soto from jail and told her what had happened.

Valerie, being of a sober suspicious mind, googled the name Todd Schonlau and up popped an internet hit.  The book “Closed Eyes” written by detective JD Benish.  Todd and Aaron Schonlau had a whole chapter devoted to them because they lived a few blocks from another child victim, Tracy Neef who was also sexually assaulted and murdered in 1984, 9 years earlier. Prior to his retirement in 1993 Benish had been interested in Aaron Schonlau  when doing a cold case investigation into the Neef murder.  He actually had the occasion to interview Todd Schonlau in 1993 after  his brfother Aaron had been arrested in Hawaii.  He was very suspicious of Todd’s involvement in the Hawaii murder when he heard Todd tell him how he turned in his brother. He was sufficiently suspicious that he called the Kauai Police department and conveyed his suspicions.  In 1993 during the time of the murder investigation they were not interested in what a detective from Colorado had to say about their homicide.  Their sentiment toward new information about this murder have not changed.

00107590-000 02/14/2012 16:41

In 2011 Benish, who had since  retired and was  living on a sailing vessel in San Diego received an email from Kaneko’s girlfriend (Soto) who told him what was going on in Oregon between Kaneko and Todd Schonlau.  He was keenly interested in what Soto had to say. Later after Tiffany Kaneko was released from jail Benish spoke with her on the telephone and via emails and she verified what Soto told him ,  what her arrest documents said and what Todd Schonlau had said to her.

Benish telephoned the Kauai police department again and was told they were not interested. He also emailed the Thornton Police Department about the information he had because the Tracy Neef case was their case and Benish was retired.  Todd Schonlau who was an admitted murderer and grew up in Thornton but he did not receive a response from the Thornton PD. After the blog was published Codefore began to receive comments.  Some of these comments were from relatives or friends of the 4 year old Alicia Ruf.

Codefore reported that Benish spent  months corresponding with Aaron Schonlau who is serving a life imprisonment term in a private penitentiary in Arizona.  The reason for communicating with Aaron was to get his take on his brother’s claim that it was he, not Aaron who actually killed little Alicia Woolsey Ruf.

Tiffany Kaneko

On February 11th, 2013 Codefore posted  a page about Tiffany Kaneko Val Soto, Aaron and Todd Schonalu.   You can read the whole blog at

After the blog was written Codefore began to receive comments.  Some of these comments were from relatives or friends of the 4 year old Alicia Ruf.

Codefore reported that Benish spent  months corresponding with Aaron Schonlau who is serving a life imprisonment term in a private penitentiary in Arizona.  The reason for communicating with Aaron was to get his take on his brother’s claim that it was he, not Aaron who actually killed little Alicia Woolsey Ruf.

Benish said that the result of the extensive written conversations with Aaron Schonlau do not give cause to believe that Aaron’s brother Todd was lying when he claimed it was he that caused the drowning of Alicia Ruf.  Aaron said that had no idea how little Alicia Ruf ended up in 40 feet of Pacific Ocean water.

If that’s the case why, asked Benish, is Aaron in prison for this murder and not his brother Todd.

The answer to this question is in questions.

Benish contacted  witnesses who were at the crime scene at the time of the murder of Alicia Woolsey  Ruf.  He spoke  with little Alicia’s father, mother, step mother and the person who actually recovered the submerged body of poor Alicia Ruf.  The witness who said he was the diver that recovered the body said that the police never contacted him nor questioned him.  Benish said that it was difficult to believe what these witnesses told him about the police investigation.

In January 2015 Codefore Publishing requested a copy of the police report containing the investigation into the murder of Alicia Woolsey Ruf by filing a “Freedom of Information Request” with the Kauai Freedom of Information office.  The electronic files did not arrive until March of 2015. There were some emails back and forth between Benish and Kauai  about the lack of requested documents and the unreasonable redactions of the documents that were provided.  Although the police reports were not complete and heavily redacted, Benish says that the individual police reports presented a picture of one of the most inept, amateurish, incomplete and inaccurate reports that he has  ever had the misfortune to read.The whole issue then became a legal question. Benish said he does not understand how a conviction of Murder against Aaron Schonlau was possible based on the  investigation reports supplied to Codefore by the Kauai Freedom of Information office.   A partial copy of the transcribed interview with Aaron reveals the following information.  1. Aaron Schonlau requested an attorney numerous times.  Despite this, extensive questioning continued.  2. Aron Schonlau did not admit to drowning Alicia Woolsey Ruf.   The answer to the question as to how Aaron Schonlau was convicted lives in Aaron Schonlaus jail cell.

Kauai PD Chief Perry

Aaron Schonlau says that he accepted a plea offer from the district attorney’s office and based upon the advice of his court appointed lawyer Arther K. Trask Jr. who has a history of professional suspensions.  Aaron agreed to plea to 2nd degree murder and in return the additional charges of rape and abduction would be dropped from the initial Murder charge  and his sentence would allow the possibility of  an eventual parole.  Aaron said he was scared and didn’t want the death penalty or spend the rest of his life in prison for something he did not do. He said he took the lesser of two evils. After 22 years he regrets this decision.  The Kauai PD and prosecutor’s office finished with a murder conviction under their belt.  Little did they know that many years later their incompetent accomplishment would be under scrutiny.

Soon after Codefore Publishing filed the freedom of information request JD Benish received a telephone call from a person who said he was a special investigator for the Kauai District Attorney’s office.  His name was John Burgess. Burgess said that he was instructed to look into the Alicia Murder file.  Burgess is a retired policeman from Everett Washington.  Everett is a small town north of Seattle.

Benish spoke with him and sent him most of the files and phone recorded conversations that he had been collecting since 2011.  Codefore has since learned that some of the Kauai witnesses contacted by JD Benish had been later contacted by Burgess.  Burgess apparently had not asked any investigative questions but instead  had been seeking out the witnesses and discrediting Benish  as an author who is trying to make money on the tragic murder and that he should not be taken seriously.   Specifically he contacted Timmy Woolsey, Alicia’s father.

According to Benish, “The  whole situation is indicative of some kind of a cover-up.”  The Kauai PD had done such a poor investigation that they put the wrong person in prison for the wrong crime and the person who in all likelihood committed the murder of Alicia Ruf is free from suspicion all these years and is  bragging about his accomplishment in Hawaii.

Benish said that what he saw was an incomplete compilation of severely redacted reports.  He said that even though they were redacted, there was enough information there to question the arrest of Aaron Schonlau and more than enough information to ask for a an investigation of Federal violations and later a cover up of the violations of Aaron Schonlau’s constitutional rights.  He argues that the Federal Constitutional violations would be difficult to miss by any competent District or prosecuting Attorney prior to criminal court action yet Aaron was offered a plea knowing that the case against him would most likely be thrown out of court. This brings the question of the culpability of the Judge that handled the case.

The Kauai District attorney and police are in a quandary because now, after the fact, to look for, arrest and seek prosecution of Todd Schonlau would expose  the incompetence,  illegal and unconstitutional actions of both agencies during the  1993 initial investigation and subsequent prosecution that put Aaron Schonlau in jail for the child’s murder and not the rape.

On April, 15,2015 Benish received a telephone call from Alicia’s father, Timmy Woolsey.  Mr. Woolsey said that the Kauai PD had been harassing him, and had recently arrested him.  He said that he thought that they were doing this because he had been communicating with Benish about the incompetence in the police department.  Benish said that Mr. Woolsey was upset.  On April 17th 2015 Mr. Woolsey reported that the State of Hawaii had dropped all charges against him.

Mr.  Woolsey and Benish are not the only people who believe that the Kauai PD is incompetent and even corrupt.  Anthony Sommer believes this too.  Mr. Sommer is a veteran of almost four decades as a reporter for major metropolitan daily newspapers and covered Kauai for the Honolulu Star-Bulletin.   In his book, “KPD Blue” he begins with “A Decade of Racism, Sexism and Political Corruption in (and all around) the Kauai Police Department.

Kauai mayor Bernard Carvalho did not respond to messages from Codefore.

The wheels of justice can sometimes turn slowly. Received an email from Judge Seabright’s head clerk in answer to questions from Codefore. We have been receiving inquiries about how to get additional complaints included in this Grand Jury investigation. Our question to the Court was, “What shall Codefore do with all this additional information.?”  The below email is their reply. So any and all additional complaints need not be addressed by Codefore.

Codefore Publishing applauds His Honor Judge Michael Seabright.  He is the chief Federal Judge, District of Hawaii and he accepted and read an affidavit from a private citizen requesting the activation of a Grand Jury.  There are those who might argue that a request for a Federal Grand Jury to a Federal Judge from a private citizen is not only improper it’s a violation of Federal Court Rules, but not only did he read it he passed it on to the Grand Jury for investigation.

This profound stellar act by a senior member of the Judicial Branch of the US Government is an act of responsible conscience. In these times of rampant loss of faith and trust in literally all branches of the US Government, Judge Seabright took the high road. He accepted his responsibility to enforce US Constitution, he stood up knowing that there would be criticism from colleagues  and others who have much to lose by his action and he has given us hope.  Judge Seabright has given us a spark of hope in our Government that has been ebbing for generations.  Judge Seabright we hold you and what you represent in esteem and believe that when you took your oath you made a pledge and you have not forgotten that pledge. There are those who desperately need to know that there are still people like you alive and well and representing the principals that this country was founded upon.

Judge Michael Seabright

Judge Michael Seabright

On January 18th, 2016 the aforementioned request was handed over by Judge Seabright to such a Federal Grand Jury for investigation into many criminal actions that violate and offend our Constitution. These actions are prominent because the some of the alleged violations of law were committed by pillars of the Hawaiian Community and even hold positions in the Judicial and law enforcement factions.

Codefore Publishing  and the victims of these crimes have been working on this project for years and the pinnacle for Codefore was the acceptance of the request for a Grand Jury by Judge Seabright , but any feeling of  accomplishment, or satisfaction will not be attained until the list of defendants have been confronted and if appropriate are indicted and  have charges brought against them and arrested for their actions.

Codefore Publishing and some of the victims will not cease placing the actions of these people in front of the public until there are indictments. We realize that although the list of defendants is long (about 100) not all of these people are culpable in the alleged crimes.  Some are on the list because of association, and in the RICO Act legal sense of the word association, they are possibly involved in organized crime. It will be up to the Grand Jury to make all determinations of probable cause however for now, these people are on the list until the Grand Jury removes them.

Grand Jury proceedings are in secret. We may never know all of the information about criminal activity that is discovered or discarded by the Grand Jury.  We trust that they, as did Judge Seabright, will diligently perform their duties.  We trust that they will support and adhere to our constitution.  We will support their decisions because we may not be aware of the totality of information that comes out of their inquiries.

However, in the interest of the public’s right to know who and why these allegations are made Codefore will list “allegedly” the most notable and culpable defendants and the reason they are on the list. Codefore Publishing has no reason to believe that this information is or has been sealed by Judge Seabright.

It is alleged that Todd Lee Schonlau murdered Hawaiian Princess Lacey Woolsey Ruff in 1993. Shonlau’s brother Aaron Schonlau is serving a life sentence in prison for the same murder and in a jail cell interview by mail admitted his culpability in the abduction and sexual assault  of little Ruff to Codefore’s editor JD Benish, however he denied actually Killing Lacey Ruff and said he had no idea how she was placed in the ocean.  In 2012 Todd Schonalu had been drinking with a girlfriend in Oregon and inadvertently admitted to this woman that it was he who murdered lacey Ruff by dragging her stone weighted body into the deep waters of the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Hawaii. This woman subsequently contacted JD Benish with this information. It should be noted that in 1993 when contacted by the Kauai Police it was Todd who was wearing the clothing seen by a witness dragging the body of Ruff into the ocean. It was Todd who was the only witness against his brother Aaron and it was Todd who actually turned in his brother Aaron to the police.  It was also Todd Schonlau who directed the Kauai Police to the location of where the  body was placed in the ocean. Todd was not arrested.

It is also alleged that Kauai Prosecutor Alfred Castillo ordered all evidence in this case to be destroyed.  It is alleged that Circuit Judge Maria Milks who has the responsibility as mandated by the US Constitution to insure that Aaron Schonlau who was arrested for the murder of Lacy Woolsey Ruff be appointed competent legal representation and that he be afforded a fair trial in this matter and in fact  Judge Milks  appointed an attorney (now deceased) who had a history of incompetence and censorships and other past indiscretions by the Hawaii Bar Association.  It is also alleged that Judge Maria Milks ignored Aaron Schonlau’s pleas for a different attorney to represent him and proceeded to accept a plea of “no contest” by Schonlau’s attorney. It is alleged that in doing so, Maria Milks was enabling the prosecution to “make a case” against Aaron Schonlau for Murder.

It is alleged that in refusing this information, Mr. Courson became culpable in the “cover up” of all of the above violations by protecting the identity of  those who may be guilty of Federal Crimes.

The Murder of LaVoy Finicum Shooting by masked Police

SUNDAY POST 02/07/2016

(Updated 02/07/2016)


It is polished and shiny and looks so fine.
Once you earn it you have to tow the line.
The minute you wear it upon your chest
it becomes a symbol that you are the best.
It means honesty, integrity, and fairness to all.
Your life is never your own, but at the public’s call.
Night or day, any hour, it makes you a mark.
It doesn’t protect you from a shot in the dark.
Over the years the shine starts to fade,
but brighter still is the man its made.
It is often what sep
arates you from the crowd.
The Idaho Springs life for Nick 004It is a second family of which you are proud.
Author unknown

It’s another sad day for the family of badge keepers described in the above poem.  It’s also a sad day for the Finicum family.  A man has died at the hand(s) of the police in the small community of Burns Oregon.  A rancher cowboy named Lavoy Finicum was shot and killed reportedly by the Oregon State police. Arial  video of the  of the murder here

 LaVoy Finicum was a man who was representative of the old west. A proud rancher who traveled from his ranch in Arizona to Oregon to let all know that he represented Ranchers who only wanted to ranch in peace as their fathers, grandfathers, and great grandfathers had done. They wanted back the land that was cleared, maintained an utilized to graze cattle and  feed our country and that had been taken from them by the Federal Government. It was public land, it was not owned by the Federal Government or the State of Oregon.

LaVoy Finicum

LaVoy Finicum

Its always sad to lose a loved one, a  father, husband, son  or  other family member but this loss has special meaning and reason for all of us  to give thanks. I personally want to thank the family of this brave and  honorable man LaVoy Finicum.  He gave his life for what he believed in. He gave his life just as all the men who stepped up in the face of danger and went  to war and lost their lives in the name of the United States of America.  They did it  for the protection of us all and in the name of every single citizen who didn’t go and stand with them. These brave men died for our freedom without question. Mr. Finicum was one of these men.  He stood, unarmed and looked the grim reaper in the eye and declared that he was not afraid to die. He stood alone. The person or people who shot him were not alone and they were afraid to look LaVoy Finicum in the eye, face to face. They did not represent the Citizens of the United States of America.

As a retired Colorado police detective I take LaVoy Finicum’s death personally. The gunshots that took LaVoy’s life came from the guns of authority.  An authority granted  by rights of oath.  This oath is represented by a badge  that says the word “Police Officer”.  It is worn on the left chest so all that all who see it will know that the man who wears this badge stands for honor, bravery, and the protection of the innocent. It is a protection guaranteed to every single citizen of the United States of America. This badge is a symbol of trust.  The people who wear this badge are members of an elite brotherhood who have all taken the same oath. The police brotherhood is an informal membership granted by rite. The ritual is the first time the badge in pinned onto the chest. This is membership  bequeathed  and the acceptance of membership is not optional.

The people who killed LaVoy Finicum are allegedly members of my brotherhood. The same brotherhood that I belong to now and until I die, the same brotherhood that I represented for almost 20 years.

We the members of this brotherhood do not condone cowardice, or the breaking of the oath. In fact we loathe it. There have always been members of our brotherhood who should not have been members but we have no control over the hiring practices of our governments. Our members are unquestionably accepted in the belief that the oath was taken and witnessed by a solemn  swearing on the bible  The police brotherhood has no recorded numbers or even a spokesman. It is a brotherhood of spirit.

Fortunately the brotherhood places a few more requirements on these badge wearers than do the government authorities. These authorities do not like the brotherhoods demands on those who wear the badge because these demands may be contrary to some of the beliefs and motivations of the political entities that all police officers work for.  I said work for, not represent.  The keepers of the badge represent the badge of honor. The badge of honor represents the people of the United States of America and is authorized by the Constitution of the United States of America, not the FBI, nor the CIA, nor the BLM, nor the many States Counties and Cities of the Untied States. It is an honor and a privilege to serve our country wearing this badge.

Albeit, today we, the members of the Police Brotherhood shed tears. Our tears are not just for Mr. LaVoy Finicum but our tears are for those members of the brotherhood who broke their oath to the Citizens of the United States of America and our Constitution when they disregarded Mr. Finicum’s right to live and killed him.  The individual(s) who did this were not brave or honorable lawmen. When they set up a road block they were setting a trap of death. There was not going to be a killing in the name of the laws of the United States because that would require probable cause or a trial of piers. This killing  was going to be a killing based on the laws of the weak, the laws of dishonor and cowardice, not our Constitutional law.  But what laws specifically were created by these men that LaVoy Finicum broke where in the penalty was immediate death?  We have no such laws in this county.

The Finicum killing may have been in fear but I doubt it. But if these men were so petrified of Mr. Finicum that it was necessary to kill him, I suggest they are not qualified to wear the badge. These lawless men did not represent the badge, they did not represent the Citizens of the United States of America. they represented themselves, the Sheriff, the Governor and the State of Oregon.

The police brotherhood will remember the names of the people who took the life of LaVoy Finicum.  We will remember those supposed policemen  who claim such fear for their own safety as to shoot a man multiple times because he  might have had a gun in his pocket. We will remember those who shot a man who was protesting the actions of the Federal Government, a man who had not committed any violent crime that precipitated his killing. We will remember those who shot at Finicum’s van indiscriminately and not caring who or what they were shooting at. We will remember the shots that killed a  man standing with his hands in the air in submission.  We will remember those who set up a confrontational road block on a slippery snow covered road and when Mr. Finicum’s car careened into a snow bank, the brave police were afraid for their lives and wearing masks to conceal their identity didn’t give Mr. Finicum a chance and immediately began shooting at him. We will remember all that and we will hold them up as a shameful examples of what we, the brotherhood do not represent.  And should there be a time that these lawless people are deemed immune from judgment  before a tribunal of their peers, we will remember those who participated in this immunity and hold them accountable as if it were they too killed Finicum. And all this accountability can be accomplished without resorting to the same type of justice and adherence to our constitution that Mr. Finicum was subjected to.  There is a name for Mr. Finicum’s fate and those who participated in it. It is CORRUPTION. 


And so we shed a tear for the brotherhood, and for those despicable people who’s fingers pulled on a piece of steel knowing that they were taking a life they had no right to take in the name of the United States of America. These men and or women might think that they now have some sort of esteem within their ranks.  They might believe that their actions have exhibited bravery and fulfilled their need to be somehow admired by those who witnessed the confrontation.  They do not deserve any of that and if and when they ever become real men, they will live in disgust of themselves for the rest of their lives. Until then the bone-fide policemen within the brotherhood no longer recognize their passage of  membership. These poor examples of police officers should actually be held in the same classification as those in prison for murder. It matters not to the brotherhood how much they are exonerated by their employers. It matters not that the police heroes claim they committed no wrong doing because LaVoy Finicum committed “suicide by police”.   When LaVoy Finicum died with his hands in the air and presenting no threat to anyone so did any and all honor bravery or professionalism  claimed by the police who were present or supervised this incident.

Mr. Finicum not only succeeded in his quest, but was the only person that fateful day who exhibited bravery normally  seen on battlefields and in some dangerous situations by  honorable policemen and firemen and did it for all to see and admire.  The admiration was not of those in overwhelming numbers of badge wearing heroes, it was of LaVoy Finicum.

To the family of Mr. Finicum I say that the brotherhood is with you, not against you. The people who shot your loved one do not represent the spirit of the law nor the Constitution of the United States of America.  There are those of us who will step up to the plate when the time comes to seek justice and avenge the wrong doings of those who have sought to destroy us.  La Voy Finicum’s death is an unequaled example of patriotism, selflessness, honor and bravery. 

God Bless You..

THE SUNDAY POST 01/31/2016

The United States Constitution, protected by American citizens and public officials who have sworn to “ support, obey and defend” it, has been in effect for nearly 225 years; making it the oldest, and longest lasting, constitution or charter of any nation on earth today.

            We at Codefore are compelled to voice an opinion about the killing of LaVoy Finicum.  I am deeply concerned with the actions taken by those who are elected or employed to protect us as citizens but more importantly are sworn to uphold the US Constitution.

             As a retired police officer of many years I am well versed in the accepted and required rules that dictate an officer’s use of force to facilitate an arrest, or protect a person or property.  Specifically I will address the term “Lethal use of force.”

            There are two things we should consider when trying to understand when and what type of force a police officer has when exercising the authority to physically restrain a person or use lethal force.   The incidents in Oregon that resulted in the deaths of two people at the hands of the authorities is sketchy at best.   I have reviewed several of the posted videos taken from an aircraft. I applaud some of the internet users and their abilities to enhance, slow down and point out important items on these photos.   But there are questions that remain even after viewing these photos such as exactly who are these authorities? Are they sworn police officers? are they military? or are some of them neither?  This determination is necessary when evaluating not only authority but type and extent of use of force.

            In this article I am not going to address the political stances of either the Federal Government or the people who were occupying the buildings that were presumably on Federal land.  However the Federal land  part is somewhat important when establishing venue or jurisdiction.   Its obvious that there are high emotions on both sides of  this incident but Codefore will look at this from an impartial observer of the use of force and in particular the use of lethal force. BLM

            In the United States we have a Constitution that limits the authority of the Federal Government, State Governments and local governments.  Albeit, Codefore is concerned that the Federal and State government s may have overstepped their authority, and the local government possibly conspired to place authority in the hands of the Federal Government when not needed or not within the rules and laws as set forth by our Constitution and Congress.

            After researching the authority to intervene and negate the activities of the occupiers and not withstanding any lower court rulings, or local laws we offer the below Federal laws for your review and as support for our opinions .  We have highlighted the words and phrases that are of special interest as they relate to the particular incidents that resulted in the death of LaVoy  Finicum.  We are only concerned with Federal law at this point because the use of force by a person of authority to use force is established by our Constitution and the US Constitution is the ultimate authoritative document that all persons of legal authority in the United States must abide by.

LaVoy Finicum

LaVoy Finicum

            As a retired police officer the question as to when a police officer can use lethal force is somewhat unencumbered and simple. Albeit there are words that may be difficult to define like the word “fear” and may different for each person.  In the past the word “reasonable” comes into play. Basically the only time a police officer is unquestionably authorized to use lethal force is to protect the life of himself or another.  The law does not say he must use lethal force, but he/she is authorized to use lethal force .  The same authority to use of lethal force has also been bestowed on non law enforcement civilians in the United States and in fact is a part of some State Laws.

            When I first became a police officer and in training there was a state law that bestowed the use of lethal force in one other incident.  This law was referred to as the “Fleeing Felon” law. (4th Amendment to the Constitution)  This law gave the police officer authority to shoot a fleeing suspect, even shooting him in the back” if he was fleeing custody and it was known that a felony had been committed.  Many times police officers have relied on this type of law to justify police shootings.    The Federal Court of Appeals said: The use of deadly force against a subject is the most intrusive type of seizure possible, because it deprives the suspect of his life, and White held that the state failed to present evidence that its interest in shooting unarmed fleeing suspects outweighs the suspect’s interest in his own survival.”  The “Fleeing Felon” justification for killing is generally no longer acceptable.

            In the case of LaVoy Finicum we see the following probable violations of Federal law and the US Constitution.

  1.  Was LaVoy Finicum a threat to someone’s life, to include any of the police who tried to stop him?

              Some have said that Finicum attempted to run over an officer with his vehicle.  True or not this not relevant in this case. Finicum was out of his vehicle when killed.  He was not a threat to anyone using his vehicle at this particular time during the incident.  You cannot kill a suspect because of a previous threat. The threat to   take a life must be current and clearly present.

                Did LaVoy point a gun as if to shoot a policeman?  The aerial videos do not suggest that he did.  Some have  said that his right hand went for his trousers or waist band as if to grab a gun.  Whether or not he had a gun  in his possession has not been established but in the truest definition of the law, lethal force is only justi-fied if a gun is actually pointed at a policeman or someone else and thus is a threat to take a life.

               No gun pointed no threat. The law is specific there must be a threat and an assumption that a gun exists is  not in itself a threat to take a life. Placing a hand in a pocket to retrieve something is not a threat to take a         life.

            In the opinion of Codefore Publishing, unless there is proof that LaVoy Finicum actually pointed a gun at someone his killing was illegal whether  done by the police or anyone else.

            An additional concern in this incident is the possibility that there were other Federal police or military persons who were either present or participated in the actual shooting of LaVoy Finicum.  This is a question of jurisdiction.  Our Constitution was formulated and ratified with the idea that the Federal Government is not authorized to impose unjust laws and use of force upon the Citizens of the United States.  The fact that Finicum and others are occupying a building that is designated Federal land does not bestow on the United States Government the same policing and use of force authority as granted to a State or Local police officer.   According to the below laws the Federal Government is only mandated to “protect” Federal property and certainly protecting property cannot in any stretch of the imagination include killing a person.  It is unknown whether or not Finicum or the others were damaging the property. If not, It is questionable if the Federal Government presence was there to protect the property was lawful.

BLM Director Neil Dornze

            One other possible reason for the presence of the Federal Government is to stop an insurrection at the request of the State of Oregon.  There is some indication that the Governor of Oregon requested the presence of the Federal Government.  We would ask why was this request made?  There is no known evidence that it was anything other than a peaceful protest.  There are many questions to be asked that do not  involve the use of lethal force but there are actions that facilitated and or enabled  the ultimate shooting of LaVoy Finicum. One important question is why was a roadblock set up to stop the Finicum vehicle. He was attempting to leave the Federal property.  Is that not what the Federal and State governments wanted them to do?  If he had violated some crime, why a road block?  What happened to obtaining an arrest warrant ,as required by the constitution, for any crimes committed?  There is a witnesses statement that when Finicum’s vehicle stopped, the police or whoever these people were, began to shoot at them. What law gave them the authority to do that?  Was LaVoy Finicum entitled to defend himself?  If we, as a country stand by without demanding justification for the actions of those who killed LaVoy Finicum then we do not deserve the freedoms that were granted us in our Constitution. If there has ever been the need for a Federal Grand Jury the Finicum killing is one of them.

The 14th Amendment Article XIV 

No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of the law, nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

           In the case of the Military Use of Force against US Citizens The Constitution of the United States, laws, regulations, policies and other legal issues limit the use of Federal Military personnel in domestic support operations.  Any Army involvement in civil disturbance operations involves many legal issues requiring comprehensive legal reviews. However, Federal forces are authorized for use in civil disturbance operations under certain circumstances.  The Constitution of the United States provides two exceptions for which the Posse Comitatus Act

The Posse Comitatus Act, 18 U.S. Code, Section 1385, an original intent of which was to end the use of federal troops to police state elections in former Confederate states, proscribes the role of the Army and Air Force in executing civil laws and states: 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 not more than $10,000 or imprisoned not more than two years, or both.

             These exceptions are based upon the inherent right of the U.S. government to ensure the preservation of public order and to carry out governmental operations within its territorial limits by force if necessary. These two exceptions are:

            Emergency Authority:

            1. A sudden and unexpected civil disturbance, disaster, or calamity may seriously endanger life and property and disrupt normal governmental functions to such an extent that local authorities cannot control the situation. At such times, the Federal Government may use military force to prevent the loss of life or wanton destruction of property and to restore government functions and public order. In these circumstances Federal Military Commanders have the authority, in extraordinary emergency circumstances where prior authorization by the President is impossible and duly constituted local authorities are unable to control the situation, to engage temporarily in activities that are necessary to quell large-scale unexpected civil disturbances. (did President Obama authorize Federal involvement?)

  1. Protection of Federal Property and functions

            When the need for the protection of Federal Property or Federal  Functions exists, and duly constituted local authorities are unable to, or decline to provide adequate protection, federal action, including the use of military forces, is authorized.

            2-9 Laws passed y the U.S. congress include four exceptions to the Posse Comitatus Act. With the first three laws discussed below:

(10 USC 331-333) there is a prerequisite that the President must take personal action, including the  issuance of a proclamation calling upon insurgents to disperse and retire peaceably within a limited time. The four exceptions based on law are.

10 USC 331When a state is unable to control domestic violence and they have requested federal assistance, the use of militia or Armed Forces is authorized.  The Military’s use of force is as described in their individual “Rules of Engagement”.

Oregon Governor Kate Brown

Oregon Governor Kate Brown

10 USC 332 When ordinary enforcement means are unworkable due to unlawful obstructions or rebellion against the authority of the United States, use of the Militia or Armed Forces is authorized.

10 USC 333. When a state cannot or will not protect the constitutional rights of the citizens due to domestic violence or conspiracy to hinder execution of State or Federal law, the use of the militia or Armed Forces is authorized.

House Joint Resolution 1292  This resolution directs all departments of the U.S. government, upon request of the Secret Service, to assist in carrying out its statutory duties to protect government officials and major candidates from physical harm.

Cruz’s Mother Eleanor Darragh Birth Certificate in Question

SUNDAY POST 01/16/2016

We at Codefore were amused with the birth certificate posted by the  Breibart Blog.

Breibart  claims that the mother of Ted Cruz, Eleanor Darragh, was born in Wilmington Delaware and therefore Ted Cruz is a US Citizen.

Breibart says, (Darragh Ted Cruz’s mother) “ was born in Delaware on Nov. 23, 1934, establishing her citizenship by birth–and, according to U.S. law, that of her son, even though he was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, on Dec. 22, 1970.”

Not so Fast Breibart.

Cruz’s Mother Eleanor Darragh Birth Certificate in Question

In a  CNN interview with Candy Crowley, Cruz himself says “ My mother was born in Wilmington Delaware.”

The National  news media is assuming that since his mother was born in Delaware  and that makes her a US Citizen therefore Ted Cruz is a US Citizen. . No one that we could find  has checked out his mother, Mrs. Eleanor Darragh’s birth certificate in the State of Delaware. The claim is that on the Cruz birth certificate   Eleanor Wilson is named as his mother  and that she received the name Wilson due to a previous marriage.  Cruz claims  that his mother’s maiden name is Darragh.  For now we will assume that this is correct. But is the Darragh birth certificate credible?  The birth certificate posted by Breibart is the same as the one that Codefore received from the State of Delaware archives.

Birth cert 5 a

 We decided to take a look at the birth certificate. Briebart claims that Cruz’s birth certificate lists a woman named Eleanore Elizabeth Wilson (Cruz.s mother).  As you can see from the  birth document, the  name  of Cruz;s grandmother is Elizabeth Cekine and the father is Edward J Darragh.  They named their child Eleanor Darragh. For now Codefore will not take issue with the names on the Document. For PDF click HEREOrginal Eleanor Darragh Birth Cert.

As a disclaimer we remind the readers that the document we looked at was taken from the Breibart web site.  Breibart claims that it is a copy of an original document. Codefore verified Breibart’s claim and obtained this document from the State of Delaware. We at Codefore are not professional document examiners  and our opinions are based on visual computer inspection.  However JD Benish of Codeforeblog is a retired police  investigator and has had the opportunity to have seen many forged documents during his career.  Additionally we at Codefore have access to  people that know their way around Adobe Photo shop and other similar photo editing software. These people were invited to take a look at the document also.

We began by enhancing the photograph with filters to make the official looking stamps easier to read and to expose possible color difference.

Inhanced Eleanor Darragh Birth Cert. 4

There are several items on this document that indicate that the document has been created after the advent of photograph editing capabilities. There are also items on this document that indicate that one of the date stamps has been altered, and that both date stamps existed on the document before the document form was created  and the hand written information was added.

These items are as follows:

a.We will begin by assuming that the document form was pre-printed on or prior to November 23rd, 1934. We will also assume that some time after that the form was filled out and signed and the date stamps were put there to authenticate the date of birth. Based on these assumptions we assume that the vertical page border on the left side of the document was a part of the original pre-printed form.  A visual inspection indicates that there are several portions of the form wherein the form itself appears to overlap the date authentication stamps.

b.The words “PLACE OF BIRTH” slightly overlaps the stamp that says “Delaware, Jan 11 1935 Department” In particular the word “Department” is overlapped. We assume that the words “Place of Birth” were a part of the original printed document and if so, the date stamp should over lap the word “Department” not the opposite.

c.The same situation exists as indicated in the above “a”. The date stamp on the upper right corner of the document is clearly overlapped by the document heading word “BIRTH”.

 d.On the upper left corner of the document you will see a stamp that says “STATE BOARD OF HEALTH”. The page border on the left side of the document clearly overlaps the word “STATE” and is visible to the naked eye.

e.About one third down the left side of the document you will see the hand written word “female in the box labeled “sex”. The “f” over laps the vertical page border. Ordinarily you would expect to see this type of overlapping on a pre-printed form, but it has already been established that this page border was added after the date stamps were applied to the document because the date stamp is overlapped by the page border. If this is accurate, the hand written word “female” was added after the Page border and therefore sometime after the date stamp.

There are other suspicious inconsistencies that we see on this document.

  1. On the box labeled “VERIFICATION OF NAME BY PARENT” the number 31 is inconsistent with all other numerical texts. The number 31 font is several sizes larger than all of the other numbers. It is highly unlikely that in 1934, the font size for this box would have been changed to a larger font than the others  The number 31 is the same font size as the words “Verification of name etc:” and it is noted that this font size is the only place it is found on this document. Remember that in 1934 typewriters font size and type were all unique to the typewriter and that is assuming that this document was created using a typewriter. If the document was created by a printer the change in font sizes, in particular the number would be highly unlikely. If the document was created later on a computer, the number font size consistency with the words Verification….;would be an easy error to make.
  2. As previously stated, filters were used to enhance the coloring of the document in particular the red date stamps. This filtering also revealed another inconsistency. You can see what, appears to be, words that are on the back side of this form. This is not uncommon on birth certificates.  On box 22. “Birth place.”  The color of the document has changed and is lighter and the visible wording on the back side of the document is not visible in this particular box.  In fact the wording on the back side of the document is only not visible in two boxes on this document. Box number 22 and box number 13, Both these boxes indicate place of birth of the parents.  The non existence of the visible wording on only these two boxes is highly suspicious and may be an indication that these boxes have been changed. When altering a document such as this, it is very difficult  to match exactly the background color and if the background color is to be identical it necessitates changing the background color of the whole document to make all portions appear identical.
  3. On the bottom right corner we noted that the signature of the physician is missing the top of the “J” and is not similar as the  “J” on Jr. . This may be the result of improper stamp application but this signature does not appear to have the characteristics of a “signature stamp” however it  does have the characteristics of an actual signature. If this opinion is accurate, the signature on this document may have been “cut and pasted” on the document and the top of the “J” in the name James was not properly cut.You can also see a possible cut error at the top of the letter “B” in the Doctors signature.. PDF HERE.Eleanor Darragh Birth Cert. 4 with arrows.

In the opinion of Codefore, this copy of a birth certificate is not a copy of an original unchanged 1934 document.  It is a copy of a document that has been changed using modern photograph editing software. Additionally it appears that the changes were not made by a professional photograph software editor.

There is more. When it became probable that the document was fraudulent, we made further inquiries into the information contained in the document. We accessed the 1940 US Census to see if the Darragh’s actually lived at the address they reported on the birth Certificate. PDF HERE1940 Census Darragh

We specifically made an effort to validate the hand written addresses on the document indicated in boxes 10 and 19.  The addresses are different. Box 10 says 222 West 17th St. and Box 22 says 222 W. 7th St.  There are currently two such streets in Wilmington but 222 7th  St. did not  exist when the 1940 US Census was conducted.  This would be a possible assumption if and  when the original document was edited because today there is a 222 7th St. according to Google Maps. Codefore suggests that whoever made the changes to the document didn’t do enough 1934 research. An address that exists in 2015, didn’t necessarily exist in 1934.

The problem in verifying the residents in 1934 is that there was no  verification of residence for the particular year of 1934. However in  1940 when the  US Census was conducted the verification survey asks  the question of residence for the 5 previous years in the box labeled “Residence April 1st 1935.  This would be 97 days after Ted Cruz’s mother was born. It’s the closest date verification of the Darragh family we could get at this time to the exact birth date. (we are still working on this)

At  222 W. 17th St. Wilmington, the 1940 census indicates that  Mr. Edgar Welch, a fireman lived there. Welch told the census taker he had lived in this house on April 1st 1935 until present . The Census question as to the total length time  Mr. Welch lived there was not asked or required. He could have possibly lived there for 10 years or more. Mr. Welch reported the he, his wife, two children and a lodger who was a barbershop owner named “John”  age 32 lived there at the time the census was taken.

A 1940 name search on Darragh produced a Census document for the residence located at 1311 Loll or Toll Rd. unincorporated New Castle county known as Gordon Heights. The address could not be confirmed but the residents were Edward J. Darragh, his wife Elizabeth and children Eleanor and Caroline. Mr. Darragh claimed that all were US Citizens.  This research seems to validate, somewhat, the Eleanor birth certificate but does not explain the alterations.  At this time the only way to authenticate, or verify  the birth certificate of Eleanor Darragh is the St. Francis Hospital Archives or the Catholic Church birth records.

With all of this information taken into consideration, the question of birth certificates should be expanded to include Ted Cruz.s mother. If his mother’s birth certificate is fraudulent then she may not have been a US Citizen. If that is the case, Ted Cruz himself is not a US Citizen naturalized or not  and cannot posses a passport nor can he hold a seat in the Senate. We at Codefore are concerned that if Ted Cruz used the above Certificate of Birth to prove citizenship and or obtain a passport, who performed Cruz’s  background investigation??  Based on  our  opinion its apparent that whoever changed this document had co-operation from someone within the Delaware Government. Their Document   We also noted that included with the Birth Certificate obtained from the Delaware Archives was a transmittal sheet that indicated that it was for Eleanor E. Darragh.  Nowhere in any of the documents we researched was the middle initial “E.” used to support the birth of Eleanor.  This birth certificate states that Eleanor Darragh was born  1934. Was one of the changes made to the Birth Certificate erroneous?
