A Tale of Two Fired FBI Directors

May 25, 2017

WHAT’S UNDER THE ROCKS IN THE BOTTOM OF THE SWAMP

The collective memory of the Swamp critters including the totality of the Journalist Cartel is about one nanosecond when it comes to negative information about liberals.

When President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey a few months into his Presidency, the collective mainstream media had a meltdown. To this day, they are gnashing their teeth and renting their garments as investigators are investigating investigators.

Yet, President Clinton fired his FBI Director the day before the so-called Vince Foster suicide and the fawning Journalists didn’t even roll their eyes; imagine that!

Clinton told reporters there had been “serious questions” about Sessions’ “conduct and leadership.” He asked his attorney general, Janet Reno, to review Sessions’ tenure and the situation at the FBI. I don’t know if she had a secret meeting on an unlit airport tarmac during the middle of the night but according to Bill “I did not have sexual relations with that woman” Clinton, “She has reported to me in no uncertain terms that he can no longer effectively lead the Bureau and law enforcement community,”

I think Director Sessions was not sleazy enough to serve in the Clinton Administration! William Steele Sessions was born in Fort Smith, Arkansas, was an Eagle Scout and recipient of the Distinguished Eagle Scout Award from the Boy Scouts of America and served an enlisted tour in the United States Air Force before being commissioned and serving as an Officer. He received a BA and LL.B Degrees at Baylor University. He served as a federal judge before being appointed Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation by President Ronald Reagan. Sessions served as FBI director from 1987 to 1993, when he was dismissed by President Bill Clinton. Does that sound like somebody who would fit well in the Clinton Administration?

Strangely, Bill Clinton ordered park rangers to investigate the murder of Vince Foster instead of the FBI.

The FBI got involved anyway and issued reports that linked Hillary Clinton to Foster’s so-called suicide. This report mysteriously disappeared from the National Archives.

According to the former FBI agents of that time, they claimed that days before his death, First Lady Hillary Clinton ridiculed Foster in front of his peers. She said things like, “You have failed us.”

Vince Foster’s death was determined to have been a suicide by inquiries and investigations conducted by the United States Park Police, the Department of Justice, the FBI, the United States Congress, Independent Counsel Robert B. Fiske, and Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr.

This is the United States of America, all these investigators can’t be wrong can they? Well, at least one WAS NOT WRONG. Kenneth Starr’s at-the-time lead investigator, US attorney Miguel Rodriguez, emphatically disagreed with Starr’s conclusion that Foster committed suicide, referring to photographs and medical testimony suggesting a second gunshot wound on Foster’s neck, evidence he asserts Starr suppressed. Concerning the cover-up, he wrote in his resignation letter, “As an ethical person, I don’t believe I could be involved in what they were doing.”

I spent 34 years in the Air Force flying combat missions and defending the Constitution and this is what I get? A corrupt government that spies on United States Citizens and our best Allies while U.S. citizens who get in their way are murdered like Vince Foster and Seth Rich!

Miguel Rodriguez was not alone in his condemnation of the phony Vince Foster Investigation. James Norman, former senior editor at Forbes Magazine, discussed and wrote about Foster having a Swiss bank account and possible espionage.

The comments of Patrick Knowlton, a grand jury witness who had been at the park where Foster’s body was found, were included as part of Starr’s Report over Starr’s objection. Judge John D. Butzner wrote to Judges Peter Fay and David Sentelle after Knowlton submitted a motion that his comments be included as part of an appendix to the final report, “I suspect that if we deny this motion we will be charged as conspirators in the cover-up,” and concluded “I suggest we let the motion and attachments speak for themselves.” Judge Fay wrote that Knowlton contradicted “specific factual matters and takes issue with the very basics of the report” filed by Starr. Knowlton’s comments were ordered included as part of the official report on September 26, 1997. Two days later, Starr filed a 9-page motion to appeal and asking that the comments by Knowlton not be included in the report. The next day, Starr’s motion was denied and Knowlton’s comments were included as part of the final official Report on the Death of Vincent W. Foster.

FBI Agent Lawrence Monroe interviewed Patrick Knowlton in April and May of 1994. Agent Monroe falsified Mr. Knowlton’s account of the events he reported he had witnessed in Fort Marcy Park. Agent Monroe was detailed to the office of regulatory Independent Counsel Robert W. Fiske, Jr.

Mr. Knowlton’s information refutes the official conclusions that Mr. Foster committed suicide in Fort Marcy Park, primarily because Mr. Knowlton is certain that no car fitting the description of Mr. Foster’s car was in the Fort Marcy lot approximately 70 minutes before Mr. Foster’s body was officially discovered, even though Mr. Foster was dead at the time. Agent Monroe covered up this and other facts Mr. Knowlton provided to Agent Monroe. Prior to 1996, Mr. Knowlton was unaware of this state of affairs and had assumed his information was irrelevant.

When he was provided copies of his interview reports by a reporter, Mr. Knowlton discovered that Agent Monroe had falsified his account, and his account of what he had witnessed at Fort Marcy and contradictory information from his FBI interview reports were published in a London newspaper.

On the same day that this newspaper reached American newsstands, October 24, 1995, the Office of Independent Counsel under Kenneth W. Starr prepared a subpoena for Mr. Knowlton to testify before the Whitewater grand jury in this Courthouse.

That subpoena was HELD FOR SERVICE FOR TWO DAYS, APPARENTLY TO ALLOW TIME FOR THE ASSEMBLY OF THE MEN WHO SUBSEQUENTLY HARASSED MR. KNOWLTON, and then served by FBI Agent Russell T. Bransford.

Beginning the same day Agent Bransford served Mr. Knowlton the secret grand jury subpoena, he was harassed by at least 25 men and Agent Bransford prior to testifying before the grand jury, and one man after testifying:

(a) Eleven or more men on October 26, 1995;

(b) Twelve or more men on October 27, 1995;

(c) Two or more men on October 28, 1995;

(d) FBI Agent Bransford on October 30, 1995; and

(e) One man on November 2, 1995.

The objects of the harassment were twofold, to:

(a) Intimidate and warn Mr. Knowlton in connection

with his grand jury testimony; and failing that,

(b) Destabilize Mr. Knowlton and discredit his

testimony before the grand jury.

This technique of subjecting a witness to an overwhelming campaign of harassment to intimidate and warn, and alternatively to destabilize and discredit the witness is known to federal intelligence and investigative agencies. Those who read my Social Media posts and Blogs know that I was an Intelligence Analyst at NSA more than 50 years ago.

On Wednesday, November 1, 1995 Mr. Knowlton testified before the Washington, DC Whitewater grand jury. Prosecutors questioning Mr. Knowlton during his grand jury appearance had been apprised prior to his appearance of his reports of being harassed by in excess of 25 men. The wrongdoers accomplished their object of discrediting him. Prosecutors did not believe Mr. Knowlton’s bizarre account of having been harassed, at one point asking him to “tell us a little bit about the alleged harassment.” Nor did prosecutors believe much of anything else Mr. Knowlton had to say.

On October 25, 1996 Mr. Knowlton filed a lawsuit in District Court against FBI Agents Russel T. Bransford and Lawrence Monroe (and others), alleging that these FBI agents are vicariously liable to Plaintiff for his damages under the law of civil conspiracy for inter alia, violation of 42 U.S.C. & sect; 1985, “Conspiracy to interfere with civil rights,” part (2), “Obstructing justice; intimidating party, witness, or juror.” The Plaintiff alleges he was intimidated in an attempt to obstruct justice in connection with Mr. Starr’s investigation into Mr. Foster’s death.

I think we all know what the chances of redress are from a Federal Court in the Swamp?

The 1994 Senate Banking committee was precluded by the limited jurisdiction of Resolution 229 from any independent exploration of the issue of how or where Mr. Foster died, and Senator D’Amato’s committee chose not to visit the issue of how or where Mr. Foster died. Therefore, save the 16 day US Park Police investigation, the only investigations into where or how Mr. Foster died were conducted by the good old FBI.

(1) First, a “preliminary investigation” in July of 1993;

(2) Second, under the auspices of regulatory

Independent Counsel Robert Fiske; and

(3) Thirdly, under the auspices of Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr.

Because of the initial FBI conclusion of “no criminal activity” in July of 1993, FBI agents who worked for Mr. Fiske the first half of 1994 would necessarily have embarrassed the Bureau had they concluded otherwise. And once the agents reported to Mr. Fiske that there was no criminal activity, there could be no abandonment of the FBI’s repeated conclusion of suicide in Fort Marcy Park without a horrendous embarrassment to the FBI and possible criminal exposure to the FBI agents detailed to Mr. Fiske’s investigation, some of whom subsequently were also detailed to Mr. Starr’s investigation.

Given the role and the conclusion of the FBI in its first two investigations into the Foster death, it is manifest that various FBI agents and the FBI operated under a conflict of interest in the role the FBI played in Mr. Starr’s investigation of the Foster death.

Are you starting to get the picture of why Director Comey could not find that Hillary Clinton had committed a crime? Maybe I can draw you a picture? Hillary Clinton was not even under oath when FBI Agents questioned her and they made NO transcript or recording of the questioning.

FBI Director James Comey distrusted former Attorney General Loretta Lynch because he believed she and other top Justice Department officials had political motives to hinder or downplay the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email scandal, a new report reveals.

According to the New York Times, Comey deployed a “go-it-alone strategy” during the investigation into Clinton because he thought Lynch and other Obama appointees would give Clinton, who was in the midst of a presidential campaign, “political cover.”

For example, during a fall 2015 meeting between Lynch, Comey and Comey’s team of advisers, Lynch instructed Comey to no longer use the word “investigation” when publicly talking about the FBI’s investigation into Clinton. Instead, Lynch suggested Comey use the word “matter.”

“I guess you’re the Federal Bureau of Matters now,” one of Comey’s advisers quipped after the meeting.

In addition, just one day after announcing they had received a criminal referral in regards to the FBI’s investigation against Clinton, Lynch’s DOJ revised a public statement to retract the word “criminal.” The DOJ revised their statement to say they received a referral “related to the potential compromise of classified information” — no mention of anything criminal.

Clinton would later seize on the happenstance by insisting that the FBI’s investigation into her and her private email server was not a “criminal investigation” — despite the fact that the FBI was treating her “matter” just like any other criminal investigation.

Later, Comey’s suspicions deepened when the FBI intercepted a document that potentially proved Lynch’s allegiance to Clinton.

From the Times:

During Russia’s hacking campaign against the United States, intelligence agencies could peer, at times, into Russian networks and see what had been taken. Early last year, F.B.I. agents received a batch of hacked documents, and one caught their attention.

The document, which has been described as both a memo and an email, was written by a Democratic operative who expressed confidence that Ms. Lynch would keep the Clinton investigation from going too far, according to several former officials familiar with the document…

If Ms. Lynch announced that the case was closed, and Russia leaked the document, Mr. Comey believed it would raise doubts about the independence of the investigation.

And last June, just one day before investigators were scheduled to depose Clinton, Lynch met with Clinton’s husband, former President Bill Clinton, on the tarmac of Phoenix’s airport. That meeting, which many believe is where Lynch struck a deal with Clinton, was the final straw for Comey.

Just days later, he paraded himself in front of the nation to announce the FBI wouldn’t recommend criminal charges against Clinton, despite confirming that Clinton essentially broke the law and anyone else, given the evidence, would have been charged with a crime. Still, Comey excoriated Clinton during the press conference, noting her utter carelessness in dealing with classified information.

For Comey, the investigation was over, until in late Sept. 2016 the FBI discovered potentially new Clinton emails during the course of a separate criminal investigation into Anthony Weiner, husband to Huma Abiden, Clinton’s closest confidant.

Comey felt he needed to inform Congress of the newest revelation. After all, he promised to keep Congress informed. In the end, the new emails didn’t provide any new evidence and Comey again wrote Congress to inform them that their investigation into Clinton was over.

Clinton, her campaign and Democrats later blamed Comey’s late October letter to Congress as the reason she lost to Donald Trump, ignoring her own downfalls as a candidate and the downfalls of her campaign.

The fact that the Times would print any of this is unusual but I am sure it is still slanted.

Back to Mr. Knowlton, in his obstruction of justice fight against the government, he took extraordinary steps to establish his credibility including:

(1) Undergoing a polygraph examination;

(2) Undergoing an extensive psychiatric examination including psychological testing;

(3) Giving a sworn interview;

(4) Obtaining sworn Affidavits of other witnesses;

(5) Assembling and publishing documents and photographs of two of the men who harassed him along with a detailed description of the harassment he suffered in a 147 page Report;

(6) Avoiding affiliation with organizations known to be opposed to the Clinton administration;

(7) Avoiding obtaining funding from conservative organizations in order to avoid any appearance of political motivation or influence; and Filing his Complaint under seal of Court on October 24, 1996 because press reports of his claims on the eve of the presidential election would further undermine his credibility by the appearance of political motivation or influence.

The publicly available record Mr. Knowlton proffered 118 exhibits in support of his claim of an overall conspiracy, 100 of which are part of the publicly available record in the Foster case. These exhibits appear under headings in that filing which, when viewed cumulatively, fairly raise a strong inference that FBI agents obstructed justice prior to and during the time that the FBI investigated under regulatory Independent Counsel Robert Fiske.

As more of the records of the Foster death investigations are declassified and analyzed by concerned citizens, Mr. Knowlton’s position that the intimidation he suffered were overt acts in furtherance of an overall FBI conspiracy to obstruct justice will slowly gain more acceptance. For example, counsel was provided with a copy of the Report of Investigation by Medical Examiner, signed on July 20, 1993 by Dr. Donald Haut, the only MD to view Mr. Foster’s body in situ at Fort Marcy Park. This report found at the National Archives on July 17, 1997, was not part of the Senate Hearings Volumes made public in January of 1995 although it was found in a box indicating that it had been so released. The following is an excerpt of the entry appearing on that Medical Examiner’s Report under the heading NARRATIVE SUMMARY OF CIRCUMSTANCES SURROUNDING DEATH: “…gunshot wound mouth to neck…”

This reported “mouth to neck” circumstance surrounding Mr. Foster’s death explains:

(1) Paramedic Richard Arthur’s sworn testimony: “What I saw is what I saw. …and I saw a small – what appeared to be a small gunshot wound here near the jawline. Fine, whether the coroner’s report says that or not, fine. I know what I saw.”

(2) Why many of the crime scene Polaroid photographs mysteriously vanished;

(3) Why the FBI falsely reported all 35 millimeter photographs were “underexposed” and that despite attempts by the FBI laboratory these photographs “were of limited value;”

(4) Press reports that Miguel Rodriquez resigned from his position with the OIC after he “insisted on conducting a painstaking review of the case [but was] met with stiff opposition from FBI agents assigned to Starr’s probe” — after he had the original Polaroid photographs “enhanced by a specialized lab outside the FBI;”

(5) A press report that a “photograph… reveals that Foster suffered trauma to the right side of his neck, just below the jawline… it has the appearance of a small caliber gunshot wound… a prosecutor on the staff of Kenneth Starr… has shown it to individuals ‘off the record’… this photo was never presented to the panel of four pathologists brought in by the Fiske investigation…”

(6) A press report that “Joe Purvis… said that he was told by a staff member of Ruebel’s Funeral Home in Little Rock that Foster had… an exit wound ‘the size of a dime’ close to the neck at the hairline;” and

(7) Why investigators stated that no autopsy X-rays were taken while inexplicably failing to investigate significant evidence the X-rays were in fact taken but mysteriously vanished.

The Medical Examiner’s report that there was a gunshot exit wound in Mr. Foster’s neck is inconsistent with the official conclusion that this neck wound “did not exist,” and is but one of numerous records in this matter which refute the official conclusions.

This is just one example of why government Whistleblowers are as scarce as hen’s teeth. Every government employee and member of the Armed Forces knows that if they report Fraud, Waste and Abuse, their career will abruptly end. Congress passed Whistleblower protection and later strengthened the protection but laws are less than meaningless. The Inspector General system not only does not work, it also cannot work in its present form. The IG works for the Military Commander or Agency Director and simply cannot substantiate any wrongdoing that will embarrass the boss or the organization or the government.

Mr. Knowlton did nothing to deserve this outrageous treatment at the hands of the FBI and the OIC. He did nothing to deserve being yanked into this FBI debacle, having his life turned upside down, and having to endure this fight for his reputation. Patrick Knowlton’s only “crime” was reporting to the authorities what he had seen at Fort Marcy Park — consistent with his understanding of his duties as a good citizen.

Mr. Knowlton’s position that the intimidation he suffered was overt acts in furtherance of an overall FBI conspiracy to obstruct justice should be common knowledge but government atrocities are only remembered for a nanosecond unless they shed light on wrongdoing by conservatives.

I could go on and on but I believe President Donald J. Trump and his handpicked Administration represents the very last stand for America. Not a single one of the other Presidential Candidates had any chance of draining the swamp. No candidate in the future will have the audacity to confront the crooked media, lazy bureaucrats or status quo politicians.

God save America

Learn what America is up Against before it’s too Late

So many things in America are not what they seem to be. Take the Ford Foundation for example:

The Ford Foundation was originally funded by bequests of Ford Motor Company stock from the estates of Henry and Edsel Ford. While the foundation is noted worldwide for its philanthropy, behind the scenes the Ford Foundation is funding a left-wing agenda that undermines the free enterprise system that makes the foundation possible.

Henry Ford’s grandson, Henry Ford II, wrote that the Ford Foundation: “exists and thrives on the fruits of our economic system. The dividends of competitive enterprise make it all possible. A significant portion of all abundance created by U.S. business enables the foundation and like institutions to carry on their work. In effect, the foundation is a creature of capitalism.”

Although Henry Ford II viewed the organization as a “creature of capitalism,” the Ford Foundation has significantly strayed from its free market roots.

Today’s Ford Foundation contributes to organizations promoting communist ideals, big-government environmental groups, and other left-wing organizations that promote an agenda that principally opposes capitalism.

In 2011 and 2012, the Ford Foundation donated over $1 million each year to a radical organization called “Latino Justice PDLDEF.” While Latino Justice claims to be “committed to justice and leadership,” it seems to have a skewed definition of what “justice” means.

For instance, Latino Justice called for the immediate release of convicted terrorist Oscar Lopez. The organization heaps praise upon the incarcerated criminal by referring to him as “the Puerto Rican nation’s shining star,” and a “political prisoner.” Here are some facts about the “shining star” that Latino Justice would like to release back onto the streets:

★In 1972, Oscar Lopez became one of the leaders of the FALN, a Puerto Rican terrorist group.
★In 1975, the FALN bombed the historic Fraunces Taven in Manhattan. The attack killed 4 and injured 60.
★In the course of 9 years, the FALN would set off nearly 140 bombs.
In 1981, Oscar Lopez was arrested and convicted for conspiring to overthrow the U.S. government.
★Oscar Lopez received additional time behind bars after he attempted to break out of prison twice.
★Described as an “unrepentant terrorist.” Lopez once told the Associated Press, “The whole thing of contrition, atonement, I have problems with that.”

Oscar Lopez was arrested for his role in numerous FALN attacks. The following day, “FBI agents discovered bomb-making material” in an apartment rented by Lopez. Oscar Lopez was charged with weapons violations, conspiracy to transport explosives, and “seditious conspiracy.” The U.S. Code defines seditious conspiracy as conspiring, “to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States.”

Upon conviction, Lopez declared, “I am an enemy of the United States government” and was sentenced to 55 years in prison. His sentence was later lengthened after he attempted to escape from prison on two separate occasions (the second attempt included plans for violence).

Despite the fact that Oscar Lopez has been described as an “unrepentant terrorist,” Latino Justice PDLDEF launched an internet campaign in January of 2015 calling for his immediate release.

Using the twitter hashtags #FreeOscarLopez and #Gift4Oscar, the group asked its followers to tweet President Obama demanding that he pardon this convicted terrorist.

With generous support from groups like the Ford Foundation, Latino Justice has the financial resources to promote its extreme agenda to the public.

Between 2009 and 2012 the Ford Foundation donated a total of $1 million to the “Labor Community Strategy Center.” This organization openly promotes the communist ideology, as well as a radical green agenda.

The Labor Community Strategy Center laments the downfall of the Soviet Union. According to its website, “When we founded the Labor/Community Strategy Center in 1989 it was a dark time in world history. The fall of the Soviet Union and the immediate fall of the entire Soviet bloc led to a period of grotesque capitalist triumphalism.”

The organization promises that it, “would never join the camp of recantation, anti-communism, or the destruction of the historical memory of the great revolutionary upsurges.” The group sees itself as part of a revolutionary movement that is fighting against, “forces of capitalist production, consumption, and contempt for nature and humanity.”

The Labor Community Strategy Center also recruits applicants for a “National School for Strategic Organizing.” This school promises to educate students on how to build, “a militant civil rights and environmental justice movement of the masses.”

In its “transformative organizing” workshop, the school informs potential students that they should work to achieve “radical social change through the strategy of building an international united front to challenge the U.S. Empire.”

ffm

Despite the fact that capitalism empowered Henry Ford to establish the Ford Motor Company, the Ford Foundation has no qualms about funding an organization that actively promotes the destruction of free markets.

The Ford Foundation even funds environmental groups that work to ban automobiles! Ironically enough, the Ford Foundation gave the Labor Community Strategy Center $1 million over a span of four years even though the organization wants to ban automobiles.

One of the Labor Community Strategy Center’s main campaigns calls for “No Cars in L.A.” According to its website, “we demand the radical restriction in auto use now. Reverse the MTA fare increases, free student pass, free public transportation, 5,000 zero emission buses, a moratorium on rail and highway expansion, auto free zones, auto free freeways, auto free days, bus only lanes all over L.A.”

And the Labor Community Strategy Center doesn’t want the fight to end there. The Center encourages us to, “envision moving towards a 90% reduction in U.S. greenhouse gases by virtually eliminating the auto(mobile) and replacing it with a nationwide system of public transit” instead.

The center refers to its campaign as “taking on car supremacy” in the name of “climate justice.”

Ford Foundation Board Member Martin Eakes has been accused of playing a significant role in the ’08 financial crisis. Martin Eakes is the CEO of the Center for Responsible Lending, which describes itself as a “nonprofit, nonpartisan research and policy organization” working to eliminate predatory lending practices. But CRL’s relationships with its credit union and lending affiliates—as well as several of its donors with vested interests in the financial industry—paint a much different picture.

The Center for Responsible Lending was founded by billionaires Herb and Marion Sandler. According to the NY Times, “The center was the successor to a smaller organization (Self-Help) in North Carolina” led by Martin Eakes. The Sandler’s approached Martin Eakes and asked him if he would like to turn Self-Help into a national organization, and the Center for Responsible Lending was born.

Herb and Marion Sandler are credited with inventing “Pick-A-Pay Loans,” which “allowed homeowners to make monthly mortgage payments that were so small they did not cover their interest charges. That meant the total principal owed would actually grow over time, not shrink as is normally the case.”

Martin Eakes’ company, “Self-Help,” worked to find a market for the Sandler’s risky mortgages. The company bragged that it had, “facilitated the extension of more than $3.6 billion in financing for home mortgages and loans.” Its generous donors included “The Ford Foundation” as part of their effort to “provide a staggering $50 million to subsidize minority and low-income mortgages.”

The Sandlers have since become two of the most vilified faces of the financial crisis due to the fact that they marketed, “risky loans at the height of the housing bubble.” Housing lawyer William Purdy told the New York Times that Pick-A-Pay “is the most destructive financial weapon ever deployed against the American middle class.”

Prior to the collapse of the housing bubble, the Sandler’s sold their bank (along with subprime mortgage portfolio) to Wachovia. According to the New York Times, “Wachovia was projecting $26.1 billion of losses” on their Sandler loan portfolio prior to being sold to Wells Fargo. Wells Fargo, “expects losses of $36 billion on the loans unless efforts to stem foreclosures help rescue part of the portfolio. The losses caused analysts and others to reassess the Sandlers’ legacy.”

In October 2008, “Saturday Night Live” parodied the Sandlers in a skit about the financial crisis. Their characters appeared in a mock congressional hearing, with the caption, “People Who Should Be Shot.” SNL and parent company NBC removed the skit from the Internet and reruns after the Sandlers protested loudly for censorship.

The Ford Foundation continues to allow Martin Eakes to sit on their Board of Directors despite his dubious involvement in the subprime mortgage crisis.

In 2013, the Ford Foundation spent over $140 million on operating and administrative costs alone. As Inside Philanthropy pointed out, “A philanthropic entity dedicated in large part to helping the world’s downtrodden is spending $100 million a year on people who are not among the downtrodden. Anyone have a problem with that?”

While the Ford Foundation purports to help the world’s poor, they are paying enormous overhead costs for expenses including, but not limited to, its posh midtown Manhattan office. The office is so extravagant that it even includes a massive indoor garden complete with numerous terraces, granite steps, and a pool of water.

Former president of the Ford Foundation Luis Ubinas, was raking in $2 million in total compensation before he left. Additionally, two ex-Vice Presidents of the Ford Foundation were each “pulling in over a half million dollars in compensation in 2013.” Must be easy to dedicate your life to “charity” when you are making that kind of money. In the last 10 years, the Ford Foundation’s overhead has totaled over a billion dollars.

Ford Foundation Supported Occupy Movement
In 2012 the Ford Foundation awarded $650,000 to National People’s Action, one of the controversial organizing groups behind the Occupy Movement.

National People’s Action is led by George Goehl, a fanatical community organizer who is known for his dangerous tactics.

Under the leadership of Goehl, NPA has focused on intimidating its opponents. Goehl not only endorses these actions, but has led dangerous protests onto the doorsteps of his enemies, targeting them and their families at their own homes.

A notable example of this occurred in May 2010, when a Goehl-sactioned protest included roughly 500 NPA and Service Employees International Union (SEIU) activists who poured onto the lawn of Greg Baer, deputy general counsel for corporate law at Bank of America. The agitators marched onto his porch—waving signs and condemning him for his “greed.”

Their actions so terrified the only member of the Baer family home at the time, Baer’s teenage son, that he was forced to lock himself in a bathroom and wait for help. When Baer arrived home, he had to fight through the mob of protestors just to get inside his home and ensure his son was safe.

Baer’s neighbor, Fortune Magazine writer Nina Easton, reported that the assault on Baer was only one of the group’s targets for the day; Goehl and the rest of the activists then packed into 14 school buses and moved on to repeat their tactics at the home of JP Morgan executive Peter Scher.

POSTED ON AUGUST 15, 2016 BY PAUL MIRENGOFF IN BLACK LIVES MATTER, LEFTISM:

“FORD FOUNDATION WILL FUND BLACK LIVES MATTER BIG TIME”

Ellen McGirt at Fortune Magazine reports that the Black Lives Matter movement will receive millions of dollars in funding from the Ford Foundation. The Foundation states, By partnering with Borealis Philanthropy, Movement Strategy Center, and Benedict Consulting to found the Black-Led Movement Fund, Ford has made six-year investments in the organizations and networks that compose the Movement for Black Lives…

As we continue to engage with and learn from the movement, we’re eager to deepen and expand this community of social justice funders. We want to nurture bold experiments and help the movement build the solid infrastructure that will enable it to flourish. As we do so, we believe it’s essential that our funding not dictate or distort the work underway.

How much money will the Ford Foundation and its partners funnel to BLM? According to Edmund Kozak at PoliZette, the above-mentioned Borealis Philanthropy says the goal is to “bring $100 million in new resources to the Movement for Black Lives.” Without distorting BLM’s work, of course.

No one should be surprised that the Ford Foundation will fund BLM. It is a thoroughly leftist operation and has been for decades.

Black Lives Matter has taken the place of Occupy Wall Street as the vanguard of a concerted, lawless, and if necessary violent push for the radical transformation of America — “total social upheaval” and “systemic change,” as BLM activists put it. The movement is, as several of its founders have said, the vessel through which all progressive causes can flow. And it is a far more serviceable vessel than Occupy Wall Street.

As you can see, powerful forces are on-board the Hillary Train bound for destruction of America as we know it. BLM will most certainly flex their muscles between now and the election because Trump will not be kind to lawless anarchy. Hillary has no need to fund-raise because money is pouring in from everywhere. She does it because she hates to associate with regular deplorable citizens.
