The ACLU had this to day
"“Christopher Wray’s firm’s legal work for the Trump family, his history of partisan activity, as well as his history of defending Trump’s transition director during a criminal scandal makes us question his ability to lead the FBI with the independence, even-handed judgment, and commitment to the rule of law that the agency deserves. Given that Wray touts his deep involvement in the Bush administration's response to the 9/11 attacks, which includes his connections to some of the most unlawful legal memos on Bush-era torture programs, the Senate should press Wray to come clean about his role in the programs. In this important moment for our country, the American people deserve a commitment from any nominee for FBI director to the foundational principles of our Constitution, and that that commitment outweighs any loyalty to a political party or a single politician. We will be watching closely in the coming days to ensure Wray makes these commitments and earns the trust of the public.”

‘interesting to say the least’
The book that some people are already calling nebulous because they doubt its veracity and validity is called “The Nebula”. Its three-page foreword is written by Wayne Madsen. The author is a former Belgian NATO AWACS command post officer and NATO Air Defense Officer. The book is published by Trine-Day.
The back cover says that the book provides “deep insights into the unseen but real forces” and “exposes a cabal which controls most of the money transfers worldwide as well as the highest political authorities.”
Donald Trump is featured in the last of four parts, particularly in chapter 19. There is an index and 22 appendices totalling fifty pages. There is a 3.5-page list of acronyms and abbreviations, a 3.5-page introduction, and a bibliography that lists 85 sources.
There is an index and 22 appendices totalling fifty pages. There is a 3.5-page list of acronyms and abbreviations, a 3.5-page introduction, and a bibliography that lists 85 sources.
On page 201, in the epilogue, Walter Baeyens says “In these days of unbridled egocentric materialism, , power and money have become the only means and measure of all thingd. How they are acquired does not matter.” In the pages preceding, he gives you a better sense of how they are acquired.

The kingpin of the Nebula was identified in the ATLAS Report, which can be found in both French and English in the appendix, as well as at whose author is the first reviewer at Amazon and who appears to have his underwear in a knot because his work is neither credited nor makes an appearance in Baeyens’ book , The ATLAS Report can also be found herek
The ATLAS report was triggered by serial murders, enough of them that one needs a guide and additional references to get clear on their history. One involved Andre Cools, and then there were the Brabant murders, and a range of Gladio events, and they stretched all the way back to the murder of Julien Lahaut in 1950 whose sponsor (to use Drago’s template) Baeyens alleges (page 2) also attempted to derail investigations in the late 80’s into the the Brabant kills and the child abuse cases labeled “Dossier X”. If this is beginning to sound familiar, read the book.
The kingpin, we are told on page 10, is a Grandmaster of the Jewish Lodge B’Nai B’rith, putting to rest one of the main points by the first Amazon reviewer who claims Baeyens went on an anti-Semitic binge “two-thirds” into the book. But the Israeli maffiya are mentioned on the very first page (and after you finish reading this book you can join the global discussion about the criminalization of free speech).http://trineday.com/paypal_store/produc ... index.html
A Politcal Murder Traces back to NWO's Absolute Power
By WALTER J BAEYENS, Foreword by Wayne Madsen
Providing deep insights into the unseen but real forces that shape the course of history, this investigation exposes a cabal which controls most of the money transfers worldwide as well as the highest political authorities. The spider in the web, according to the investigators, was Felix Przedborski, a selfmade millionnaire of Polish-Jewish descent who held both Belgian and Costa Rican nationalities. By 1990, 'Don Felix' was Grand Master of the Lodge B'Nai B'Rith, called US presidents by their first names, and had excellent contacts with the Holy See, Mossad, CIA, and various heads of state. In order to understand this cabal one must to abandon the conventional logic of economics and politics.
Walter J. Baeyens was born in 1952 in Aalst, Belgium. He trained in the Belgian Air Force and served as a NATO E3A AWACS Command Post Officer and NATO Air Defense Ops Officer. His first Dutch language book titled Scum Deluxe was published in 2012, followed by the The Elites of Power in 2015. He is now a retired Belgian Air Force Pilot and former self-employed intellectual property consultant.
Implications of September 11 Flight Transponder Activity
May 23, 2017
Evidence and ResearchAir Defense Failures, Cover-Up
Originally published at The Journal of 9/11 Studies by Aidan Monaghan, May 2017
ABSTRACT: It has been the consensus of informed observers that the loss or alteration of Secondary Surveillance Radar (SSR) information for the four September 11 flights was caused by accused hijackers allegedly seizing control of the aircraft flight decks and manually turning off or adjusting each plane’s Mode S (Mode Select) transponder. This was presumably for the purpose of evading detection and interception by U.S. air defense systems. However, this view appears to be based only on circumstantial information – the simple loss or change of SSR flight data to Air Traffic Control (ATC) – and seems unsupported by conclusive facts. Following these transponder operation changes, ATC was still able to tag and track the primary radar returns of three flights and estimate their locations, directions, ground speeds, and even altitude changes.

Email reveals de Blasio donor asked mayor for spot on committee dedicated to eliminating cop corruption
Friday, August 4, 2017, 6:56 PM
Even while allegedly trading lavish gifts for favors from the NYPD, Jona Rechnitz asked for an appointment from Mayor de Blasio — to a committee dedicated to eliminating cop corruption, the Daily News has learned.
In an email dated April 28, 2014, Rechnitz, a de Blasio donor, wrote to Hizzoner at his personal email account and sought a spot on the Commission to Combat Police Corruption, according to emails released as part of a Freedom of Information Law request.
“Dear Mr. Mayor, I am interested in serving on your committee [sic] for ‘combat police corruption’,” Rechnitz wrote. “In addition to being the Chaplain for Westchester County, I am a concerned citizen of NYC that wants to ensure the community's safety.”
He signed the note: “Hope all is well.”

Rechnitz was an unnamed cooperating witness in a massive NYPD corruption investigation, according to sources. Prosecutors alleged he and his pal Jeremy Reichberg showered officers with $100,000 in gifts — including a plane ride to Las Vegas featuring an on-board hooker — and in exchange got their own private police force.
Reichberg and Rechnitz even dressed up as elves on Christmas Day 2013 and drove to one top cop’s home to deliver gifts to his kids, according to court filings.

LAPD review of cadet scandal finds inadequate supervision, other deficiencies
At some police stations, a single officer supervised 60 teenage cadets.
Cadets occasionally used social media to bully one another or express “infatuations” with police officers. They sometimes logged into police computers using an officer’s serial number.
Officers who worked with cadets received no formal training in how to interact with young people.
These were among the deficiencies enumerated in an internal review of the Los Angeles Police Department’s cadet program, which is reeling from a scandal involving stolen police cruisers and alleged abusive sexual contact between a police officer and a 15-year-old cadet.https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/ ... ed-corpses

Martens-Corbett in line for €500,000 insurance payout after husband Jason's death
Murder accused Molly Martens-Corbett is the main beneficiary of a €500,000 life insurance policy payable on the death of her husband Jason Corbett.
A North Carolina murder trial heard that the money is currently being held in a trust fund as the second degree murder trial proceeds.
Ms Martens-Corbett's father, retired FBI agent Thomas Michael Martens (67), broke down and wept in evidence as he said he repeatedly struck his Irish son-in-law with a metal baseball bat over the head because he feared for his life and the life of his daughter.
Mr Martens fought back tears as he offered evidence for the first time in his three-week Davidson County Superior Court murder trial in the US.
Mr Martens and Ms Martens-Corbett (33) both deny the second degree murder of Mr Corbett (39) in North Carolina on August 2, 2015.
Mr Corbett, a father-of-two from Limerick, died from horrific head injuries in the bedroom of his luxury Panther Creek property outside Lexington.
His skull was effectively smashed by at least 12 blows.
Both his father-in-law and wife were found by police and paramedics to be totally uninjured after the incident.
"I hit him until I thought that he could not kill me," Mr Martens said. "He said he was going to kill Molly.

"I actually felt he was going to kill me."
Mr Martens said he was visiting his daughter and son-in-law with his wife Sharon and had gone to bed around 11pm on August 1. He said his son-in-law had consumed both beers and a cocktail.
Mr Martens said he was awoken by loud sounds from the master bedroom early on August 2. "I heard a scream and loud voices," he said.
He said he grabbed a baseball bat and went to the bedroom to investigate.
"In front of me, I would say seven to eight feet from me, Jason had his hands around Molly's neck," he said.
"I said: 'Let her go'. He said: 'I am going to kill her.' I told him again, several times, to let her go.
"He was really angry and I was really scared."
Mr Martens said he struck Mr Corbett with the baseball bat he had brought to the house as a gift for Mr Corbett's son, Jack. The accused said he repeatedly struck Mr Corbett with the baseball bat but, at one point, Mr Corbett shoved him away and managed to grab the bat.
Mr Martens said he jumped back up off the floor and rushed Mr Corbett.

Somehow, he said he managed to regain control of the bat from the younger, heavier man. Mr Martens claimed his son-in-law had his daughter in a choke hold and he was afraid when he saw her stop trying to wiggle.
"I don't know how many times I hit him in the head."
Mr Martens said he was convinced if he fled the bedroom his daughter would have been killed. "If I get out of the bedroom he is going to kill Molly. He is bigger, stronger and younger than me. I just did the best I could," he said in court.
Eventually, he said his son-in-law fell to the ground after repeated blows to the head. "He goes down - I started thinking a little more clearly. Molly is in bad shape. I told her to find a phone. I said we had to call 911."
Mr Martens admitted he did not like his son-in-law. "I did not like him. I am sure I said disparaging things about him," he said.
Mr Martens said "an issue of contention" arose because Mr Corbett did not allow his daughter to formally adopt his two children, born to his late first wife, Margaret 'Mags' Fitzpatrick.
However, he acknowledged Mr Corbett provided all the funds for their €350,000 Panther Creek home and the Irish businessman had also paid him €45,000 towards their 2011 wedding costs.
"We were superficially friendly - I am sure he knew I had some feelings about him," Mr Martens said.
He also declined to go on a joint family holiday to Washington because Mr Corbett was there. However, he said he could not recall telling work colleague Jonathan Underwood: "If I was going on vacation, why would I want to go on vacation with this ass...e!http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/opi ... story.html
Before Trump's crackdown on leaks, Obama went after 10 leakers, journalists
Here are 10 people that fell under leak investigations during Obama’s presidency:
Drake was a National Security Agency executive before he was indicted in April 2010 under the Espionage Act for allegedly leaking information about TrailBlazer, one of several surveillance programs used by the agency. Drake eventually pleaded guilty to a lesser charge and avoided prison.
Leibowitz was an FBI linguist before pleading guilty in May 2010 to leaking national security information to a blogger. Leibowitz was sentenced to 20 months in prison.
Chelsea Manning (formerly Bradley Manning)
Manning was an Army intelligence analyst who was arrested and charged in June 2010 in connection with one of the largest leaks ever of U.S. State Department documents. In July 2013, Manning was convicted to a prison sentence of 35 years, a sentence Obama commuted before he left office.
Manning spent seven years in prison and was released in May.
Kim was a state department contractor before he was indicted in August 2010 for leaking information about North Korea to a Fox News reporter, James Rosen. Kim pleaded guilty and in 2014, he was sentenced to 13 months in prison.
Rosen, a Fox News journalist, reported in 2009 that U.S. officials feared North Korea would respond to United Nations sanctions with nuclear tests, The Washington Post wrote at the time. Stephen Kim was suspected to be his source, so the Justice Department obtained Rosen’s phone records and emails to make that connection.
Rosen was not charged with a crime.
Sterling was a CIA officer before he was arrested and charged in 2011 with leaking information about U.S. efforts to sabotage Iran’s nuclear program to a reporter for The New York Times, James Risen. Four years later, Sterling was convicted on espionage charges and was sentenced to 42 months in prison.
Risen was first ordered to testify in the Justice Department’s case against Sterling as early as 2008 at the end of the George W. Bush administration, The Times reported. Risen spent the next seven years, mostly during the Obama administration, fighting the Justice Department and vowing to go to prison before revealing his source.
The legal battle ended finally in 2015 when Attorney General Eric Holder said Risen would not be forced to testify in the case.
Kiriakou, a former CIA officer, was charged in 2012 with disclosing information to reporters about the capture and interrogation of Abu Zubaydah, a suspected Al Qaeda member. Kiriakou pleaded guilty later that year and was then sentenced to 30 months in prison.
Sachtleben was a former FBI agent who pleaded guilty in 2013 to leaking classified information about to journalists about a foiled bomb plot in Yemen, The New York Times reported. Sachtleben was sentenced to more than three years in prison.
Snowden is the notorious NSA contractor who leaked information to journalists about the agency’s massive surveillance programs in 2013. Snowden was charged with three felonies — one count for theft of government property and two for disclosing that information. Snowden fled the U.S. and to this day remains in asylum in Russia.https://www.nytimes.com/2017/08/04/worl ... ences.html
In Blackwater Case, Court Rejects a Murder Conviction and Voids 3 Sentences
August. 4, 2017
WASHINGTON — A federal appeals court on Friday threw out lengthy prison sentences for three former Blackwater Worldwide security contractors and ordered a new trial for a fourth involved in a deadly 2007 shooting in Baghdad that became a symbol of unchecked, freewheeling American power in Iraq.
The shooting killed or injured at least 31 civilians when contractors unleashed a torrent of machine-gun fire and launched grenades into a crowded downtown Baghdad traffic circle from their heavily armored trucks. An F.B.I. agent once called it the “My Lai massacre of Iraq.”
The ruling is a setback to the effort — which now stretches across three presidential administrations — to demand stiff consequences for the shooting in Baghdad’s Nisour Square. Along with the massacre by Marines of 24 Iraqi civilians at Haditha and the abuses of Iraqi prisoners at Abu Ghraib prison, it was among the war’s darkest moments and stained the reputation of the United States.
Three of the contractors — Dustin L. Heard, Evan S. Liberty and Paul A. Slough — were convicted in 2014 of voluntary manslaughter and using a machine gun to carry out a violent crime. They were sentenced to 30 years in prison, a mandatory sentence on the machine-gun charge. A fourth, Nicholas A. Slatten, a sniper who the government said fired the first shots, was convicted of murder and received a life sentence.
Defense lawyers argued that the convoy was under fire from insurgents, a claim that prosecutors denied and Iraqi witnesses rejected.
Law4BlackLives-DC just started a petition to
Kick Racist Cops Out Our Community! Tell MPD To Fire Officer Altiere!
We just started a petition titled "Kick Racist Cops Out Our Community! Tell MPD To Fire Officer Altiere!"
On June 2, 5, and 13, 2017, Officer Vincent Altiere, Badge #4440, of the Washington, DC Metropolitan Police Department, was seen in the DC community and at the DC Superior Court (where he was present to testify in a criminal case), wearing an offensive, racist, and threatening shirt. The shirt displays symbols of police harassment, hate, and death while prominently displaying the symbols and emblems of the Metropolitan Police Department. We're asking that you join us, together we can voice our extreme concern about this offensive shirt and demand that Mayor Bowser's administration, Metropolitan Police Department and the Office of Police Complaints take immediate disciplinary action against Officer Altiere and any other Officers who have worn this or similar shirts. Our effort is already having an effect, the Metropolitan Police Department has already stated that they're taking Officer Altiere off the street for the time being. We are also demanding that officials take proactive measures to address a department culture that allowed this type of misconduct to go unchecked.
The Seventh District is a Black community being policed by an officer openly displaying white supremacist symbols!
The shirt displays a “sun cross,” replacing the letter “O” of “PowerShift” with a notorious white supremacist symbol adopted by the Ku Klux Klan and other white supremacist hate groups. Immediately below is the image of the Grim Reaper, a personification of death in the form of a hooded skeleton, holding an assault rifle and a Metropolitan Police Department badge. Below, the shirt reads “Let me see that waistband jo,” referring to “jump outs” and the routine practice of demanding to see the waistbands of individuals, who are disproportionately young Black and Brown men, often for no legitimate reason.
Given the prominent placement of MPD logos and a badge number, the shirt does not appear to be attributed to Officer Altiere alone, but instead, appears to have been designed for a group of officers associated with the MPD Seventh District. Ninety-five percent of the residents in MPD’s Seventh District are black and too many Seventh District residents have experienced harassment and abuse at the hands of the police. It is time for the leadership of this city to acknowledge and address the systemic violation of rights, and threat of violence to Black people here in Washington D.C.
This shirt is offensive and indicates systemic bias in the policing of people of color. Join us to fight back.
White supremacy and insinuated threats of death should never be associated with or tolerated in police departments who are sworn to protect and serve. Such ideologies are dangerous and demonstrate a blatant disregard for Black and Brown life. They are at the root of rampant police abuse and result in the unconstitutional terrorizing of Black and Brown communities and the callous murder of Black and Brown men and women at the hands of the police, both in Washington, DC and across the country.
On behalf of a number of community organizations and community members, Law4BlackLives-DC has formally filed complaints with both the Internal Affairs Division of the Metropolitan Police Department and the Office of Police Complaints regarding this shirt and the message it propagates. The shirt stands alone as an affront to the community. It also embraces ongoing patterns of constitutional violations and constitutes a blatant disregard of MPD’s own general orders, including MPD General Orders 110.11, 201.26, 304.10, and 304.15. We are also asking concerned community members to let Mayor Bowser know that she must step in to check this culture for the people of Washington D.C.
Such Officers are a threat to public safety and erode public trust in the police. Inaction by the Metropolitan Police Department, Office of Police Complaints, and the Mayor's office would be an endorsement of this shirt’s hateful message and an acceptance of a policing culture infected by racism and violence. We're going to keep pushing until we win substantive change, we won't rest until he is fired and everyone who has taken part in this disgraceful conduct is gone.
Will you pledge to join the fight against racist policing?

Philanthropist: Burlington College could have survived
Aug 4 2017, 2:47 PM
A major donor to Burlington College said Friday the educational institution would have survived had its leaders followed through on plans to sell a portion of its new property.
Crea Lintilhac said she was “disappointed and sad” the college had to close last year because of the debt taken on by a land purchase and significant expansion proposed by college leaders.
Lintilhac told VTDigger she was interviewed by the FBI six months ago about her foundation’s $120,000 donation to help the small liberal arts college finance the land deal.
Federal authorities are investigating claims that former college president Jane Sanders, the wife of Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., inflated the amount of pledges to bank officials while obtaining a $6.7 million loan from People’s United Bank. Jane Sanders said the college had $2.6 million in confirmed pledges. As of 2014, $676,000 was paid as part of that campaign.
Several donors have told VTDigger their pledge amount was overstated or misrepresented, including a donor who the college claimed would made a $1 million gift that she said instead was a bequest upon her death.
Lintilhac said the amount of her pledge was accurately presented, but that the college’s records were sloppy and incomplete.
Burlington College bought 33 acres of property in Burlington, some of it lakefront, from the Roman Catholic Diocese in 2010 for $10 million. Sanders was ousted in 2011.

The Lintilhac Foundation has supported Burlington College since 2007. The foundation gives out $1 million a year from its $20 million asset base to organizations that promote water quality, alternative energy and education programs, as well as others.
(Disclosure: Lintilhac serves on the board of the Vermont Journalism Trust, which oversees VTDigger and is a financial contributor.)
Lintilhac recalled Friday she toured the new land with Jane Sanders around the time of the 2010 land purchase and supported the college’s ambitious expansion plan. The idea all along, as Lintilhac understood it, was to sell off a portion of the 33 acres to pay down the debt, similar to the model Shelburne Farms followed when it purchased 3,000 acres and sold off some it privately to pay for renovations, Lintilhac said.
“This is a perhaps a calamity, but it served the community and the students very well while it was an operating college,” Lintilhac said. “Perhaps some of the calamity could have been averted” had school leaders after Sanders pursued selling off part of the land or meeting with major donors.
After Sanders left in 2011, Lintilhac said she never heard from the succeeding presidents, Christine Plunkett or Carol Brown. Lintilhac said she was surprised the new leaders didn’t convene a meeting of donors, nor did they apparently seriously pursue efforts to sell off a part of the property as Sanders had sought to do.http://atlantablackstar.com/2017/08/04/ ... ers-trial/
Police Videos Are Focus at St. Louis Officer’s Trial Who Killed a Black Man
By Associated Press - August 4, 20170203
Prosecutors say Stockley planted a gun in Smith’s car after shooting him. Stockley’s attorney, Neil Bruntrager, said in an opening statement that Smith had a gun in the car and Stockley shot him in self-defense.
In Thursday’s testimony, Deeken said he asked for DNA analysis of the .38-caliber revolver seized from Smith’s car after viewing photos of the gun and seeing what he thought might be blood. A crime lab scientist testified Wednesday that his tests showed the DNA apparently did not come from blood on the gun but he could not identify the source.
In earlier testimony Thursday, FBI forensic chemist Doug Halepaska testified that one of the five rounds that killed Smith was fired from within 6 inches, something that prosecutors had claimed in opening statements Tuesday.
