New Crimes, Old Crimes, Same Lawyers
Have you ever wondered why FILEGATE never produced prison-time for those involved in possessing over 900 F.B.I. files? Charles (C.W.) Colson, in the Nixon Administration, had one F.B.I. file and served 7 months in prison! He is forever remembered as Nixon’s nastiest hatchet man.
If you were to read the history of C.W. Colson it becomes apparent that a new vitriol had overtaken print media. TV media also shed its Cronkite image and assumed its prosecutorial nature we have today. Colson was portrayed as the most evil wizard in the doomed Nixon Administration. That’s good – no one died because Nixon’s nastiest hatchet man was really a born again Christian who eventually founded Prison Fellowship ministries.
FILEGATE and its 900 files were just another speed bump in the Clinton Administration. At present, there are no Evangelical Christians founding prison ministries from the Clinton Administration… give it time.
To this day, the man most responsible for FILEGATE? – President Clinton’s Head of White House Security (Craig Livingstone) cannot tell you (nor can anyone else in the Administration tell you) who hired him? A very sensitive post for a former bar bouncer.
Mr. Livingstone must be a bouncer with a taste for pizza as we see how this is playing out to protect a bunch of evil, dirty, politicians.
Mr. Livingstone would never admit to knowingly possessing the F.B.I. files nor would he admit to being under the direction of a former attorney on the Watergate Commission, Hillary Rodham Clinton. Ms. Clinton was very familiar with backdoor software and methods of spying as she represented Jackson Stephens Company, Systematics as lead attorney for The Rose Law Firm.
Mr. Livingstone is the perfect patsy for FILEGATE – Peter principle married to Saul Alinsky. Premier thought patterns exhibited by intelligence operators igniting a culture within the F.B.I. after Ruby Ridge with the siege at WACO. (Thank you Lon Horiuchi)
It can be said that the Justice Department under Janet Reno and Chelsea Clinton’s father, Web Hubbell, (Chief Justice of the Arkansas Supreme Court à la Bill Clinton) and number three at the Justice Department (a time-honored tradition of placing the real boss two or three steps below the figurehead) was a complete subversion of any justice we ever had.
Webster went to jail and kept his mouth shut – but his silence did not buy his life. His connections and personal memories could never come to light. Today, you see a Bill Clinton riddled with health problems, but the bet of the future, is that Web Hubbell will outlive both Bill & Hill.
A professor from the Harvard Law School was moved into the Reagan Administration. You may recall Judge Ginsburg was Reagan’s replacement nomination after Robert Bork was infamously “Borked” due to his firing of Archibald Cox (something that Ted Kennedy could not let go by – did he run that past Moscow?)
NPR’s Nina Totenberg had said Ginsburg was an irregular user of marijuana at Harvard in the 1970’s. After several appointments between the periods of 1983-1986, President Reagan appointed Douglas Ginsburg as Deputy Assistant Attorney General and later as Assistant Attorney General in the Antitrust Division of the Justice Department.
Ginsburg was very active throughout his life. He was a professor and visiting lecturer as well as visiting professor and visiting scholar. He served on advisory boards – both domestic and international.
Rod Jay Rosenstein was a graduate of the Wharton School of Business and Harvard Law School (where he was an editor at Harvard Law Review) and served as a law clerk to Judge H. Douglas Ginsburg. Judge Ginsburg happened to be on the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. From Ginsburg’s lips to the face of GOD (or at least to the Supreme Court.)
Rod Jay Rosenstein joined the U.S. Department of Justice immediately after clerking for Judge Ginsburg and was led by Assistant Attorney General Robert S. Mueller III, (his boss) in the Public Integrity section of the U.S. Department of Justice.
While Mueller and Rosenstein were in the Public Integrity section, Craig Livingstone was procuring F.B.I. files which were more important in the day because the nature of domestic spying was something new. J. Edgar Hoover always had a man who kept secrets.
Co-Counsel in the FILEGATE case, Rosenstein found no criminal activity in respect to the 900 F.B.I. files which were focused on Republican politicians and operators. They are called operators because the small business donors at RNC meetings had to speak in hush tones about the CFR’s and the Tri-Lateralists, taking over the Republican party.
No matter that the Republican operators were a warm bucket of spit – they were totally compromised.
Any similarities between the Watergate firing of Archibald Cox to the firing of James Comey can only be viewed through the PSY-OP lens. Lawyers/psychopaths.
Buyer Beware! This is what JUSTICE looks like on the side of the road.
UPDATED January 30, 2018
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein approved an application to extend surveillance of former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page shortly after taking office last spring, according to the New York Times.
That is one of the revelations in a memo compiled by House Intelligence Committee staffers that is set to be released within weeks, according to “three people familiar with it” who spoke to the Times.
The memo is expected to detail abuses by senior FBI officials in their investigation of the Trump campaign, which began the summer of 2016.
The House Intelligence Committee could vote to release the memo as early as Monday. It would give President Trump five days to object; otherwise, the memo will be released.
Democrats, as well as the Justice Department, have warned that releasing the memo to the public would be “extraordinarily reckless,” although the leaks of the memo to the Times makes those claims dubious.
Democrats have also claimed that the memo, which summarizes classified information held by the Justice Department, is misleading and paints a “distorted” picture, and they have prepared their own counter memo they want to release.
The people who spoke to the Times argued that Rosenstein’s renewal of a spy warrant on Carter Page, Trump’s former campaign foreign policy adviser, “shows that the Justice Department under President Trump saw reason to believe that the associate, Carter Page, was acting as a Russian agent.”
The memo, however, is expected to detail how the surveillance warrant was initially obtained inappropriately using the Trump dossier — a political document funded by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee.
It is expected to show that FBI and DOJ officials did not explain to the secret court granting spy warrants that the dossier was politically fueled opposition research. To obtain the warrant, the officials needed to show “probable cause” that Page was acting as an agent of Russia.
Page joined the campaign in March 2016, around the time the team was under pressure to release names of foreign policy advisers.
The former investment banker and Navy officer took a personal trip to Moscow to deliver a speech at a graduation ceremony in July 2016, which fueled nascent allegations that Trump was somehow colluding with Russia. Page left the campaign in September.
The Trump dossier claimed he met with two high-level Russian officials on that trip, despite no evidence of it and Page’s testimony under oath that he never met with them. Page has sued BuzzFeed for publishing the dossier.
The FBI had been tracking Page, who was previously based in Moscow, since 2013, but was never charged with any wrongdoing. The FBI reportedly received the surveillance warrant on him in fall of 2016, but Page had left the campaign by then.
Rosenstein, after he was confirmed as the deputy attorney general in late April 2017, approved renewing the surveillance warrant, according to the Times. When Trump fired then-FBI Director James Comey in May, Rosenstein appointed Robert Mueller to lead a special counsel.
Rosenstein has been in charge of the Russia investigation since Attorney General Jeff Session recused himself.

Corporate Transnational Warlord Pirates Are On the Run
The CEOs (corporate warlords) of some of the largest companies in the world have coincidentally “stepped down” at the same time that the first president in U.S. history formally announced a “national emergency” and a type of war against every criminal in America, the international corporate world, and every country and organization in the world that wishes to break U.S. laws, including the U.N. which Trump has already “called out” for its crimes and has begun to defund them.

Abel Danger’s report on Sidley Austin: Sidley Austin Law Firm and ADT – Time-Lapse Key Modus Operandi – Manipulated Surveillance Cameras – “BTK” (Bind, Torture, Kill) – Judge Alban Garon – February 12, 2012
December 15, 2017
by Lisa Phillips of OpDeepState.com
On November, 30, 2017, Q Clearance Patriot (QAnon) left the following clue:
This company, Sidley Austin, is a high powered law firm that sets the policies of the United States by planting their cohorts inside the US Government at all levels, while protecting themselves from prosecution, and enabling themselves to get rich through seemingly covert methods. They are doing this out in the open, and hidden in plane sight, but what we are about to find out who is working in the US government on behalf of Sidley Austin.
Many of their employees have security clearances issued by the US government, which gives them an edge, and inside knowledge of what to prepare for, in order to protect their financial interests.
Some of those interests include Antitrust/Competition, Securities & Derivatives Enforcement and Regulatory, White Collar: Government Litigation & Investigations, and FCPA/Anti-Corruption.
Let’s take the Antitrust/Competition division for example. Sidley Austin is connected to the firm which represented Bill Gates in the infamous anti-trust lawsuit against MicroSoft, Inc:
Other clients in the 1990s and after the turn of the century included Health Alliance, Amoco, and Citicorp. It also helped Microsoft’s main outside law firm Sullivan & Cromwell when the software giant was accused of antitrust violations (think fought for the consolidation of power and to curb competition).
In November 1998 the American Lawyer, assisted by London’s Legal Business, published its first rankings of the world’s major law firms. Based on its 811 lawyers, Sidley & Austin ranked number 12. Only 5 percent of its lawyers were outside the United States, unlike Baker & McKenzie, the most internationalized firm, with 80 percent outside of its home country. Based on 1997 gross revenue of $360 million, Sidley & Austin received a number 11 ranking.
We know what happened with the 2007/2008 “Meltdown” of the US economy and the crash of the housing market due to the Wall Street banks trading derivatives. Sidley Austin is the law firm that set up the scam and made it legal. The end result was the American tax payers were forced to bail out the banksters by certain members of Congress threatening marital law if we questioned it or opposed the bailout.
Video published on October 3, 2008 courtesy of ThisWeekInFascism
Two of the most notable employees of Sidley Austin are Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Senator Mike Lee (R-UT).
On November 29, 2017, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced that the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) has concluded that the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) Pilot Program adopted last year “proved to be a step forward in fighting corporate crime,” but that “there were opportunities for improvement.” The enhancements are intended to provide “greater certainty for companies” deciding whether to voluntarily disclose potential wrongdoing and enable DOJ to “efficiently identify and punish criminal conduct.” This revised policy will be set forth in the United States Attorneys’ Manual as the FCPA Corporate Enforcement Policy (the Policy).
The DOJ announcement emphasized that the Policy would provide “greater clarity” about the government’s decision-making. The Policy offers increased incentives to companies who voluntarily self-disclose potential violations, fully cooperate and timely and appropriately remediate the issues. It also provides details about how DOJ will evaluate a company’s compliance program, acknowledging that programs vary depending on the size and resources of the company. DOJ’s announcement also emphasized a continued shift toward increased individual criminal enforcement.
This sounds like a ploy to destroy the competition. After all, John D. Rockefeller said, “Competition is a sin”. Rockefeller bought the University of Chicago in 1886 and from there established his beachhead into American education – the social sciences – while funding think tanks to quickly translate “research” from his social sciences to “policy”. The Neoconservatives were students of Leo Strauss at the University of Chicago. These are the schills who attacked the World Trade Center on 9/11 and took America into endless wars in the Middle East under the regime of George W. Bush and then continued under Barack Obama aka Barry Soetoro.
The Clintons, Obamas and other NWO Communists are connected to Sidley Austin. Abel Danger exposed Michelle Obama and Bernadine Dohrn (of the Weather Underground) as well as the University of Chicago as the link between university recruitment into the pedophile blackmail network.

The Catholic Campaign for Human Development’s Agenda to steal Catholic contributions to fund abortions and further the Communists agenda in the United States through charities is unknown to most conservative Christians. We urge you to watch this video and take notes, then take action to expose this evil. Saul Alinsky mentored Barack Obama aka Barry Soetoro, who became America’s Manchurian Candidate and President of the United States with the help of covert actions of several Catholic bishops.
The “Special Councilor” Robert Mueller, who was appointed to “investigate” Russian collusion into the 2016 Presidential election, was appointed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. One of Mueller’s team members is Andrew Weissman, complicit in covering up data discrepancies in the National Center for Missing and Endangered Children (NCMEC) for fraud, including misuse of grant funds.
Another team member of Mueller’s is Aaron Zebley. Zebley previously served as Mueller’s chief of staff at the FBI and as a senior counselor in the National Security Division at the Department of Justice. Fox News’ Tucker Carlson reported that in 2015, Zebley was an attorney for Justin Cooper, the IT staffer who set up Hillary Clinton’s private email server and the aide who destroyed Clinton’s old Blackberry phones with a hammer. Is Zebley covering up for the Muslim Brotherhood spy ring better known as the Awan Brothers? The high priced legal talent representing Imran Awan and Hina Alvi are seeking a plea deal where the couple would avoid prison time, according to federal law enforcement officials. We need to find out who these “high priced” lawyers are!
On November 27, 2017 we reported:
The Podesta group and others are facing new legal battles after a former Bernie Sanders supporter files suit. George Webb, an independent investigative journalist who has been uncovering the CIA’s rat lines for the past year and a half is finally taking the swamp monsters to court. What is important to note, is the discovery process. Once Webb gets his information on public record, there’s no hiding the facts anymore about Hillary Clinton and her cohorts child trafficking and organ harvesting.
FBI agents suspect somebody in Congress tipped off the Awans that they would be indicted and now the criminal cases once-seemingly isolated to a group of rogue Pakistani IT specialists working for Congress suddenly has gotten much larger. And much more troubling. We at OpDeepState.com reported on the complete list of 30 Democrats who hired the Awan brothers for IT services.
Federal agents said preceding his arrest, Imran Awan acted like a man who was recently tipped off that he would be pinched and moreover, it was no coincidence Awan’s wife was whisked out of the country in March after sidestepping the FBI at Dulles International Airport to flee to Pakistan. Was it Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) who works for Sidley Austin?
We have also exposed Peter Strozk, and his wife Melissa Hodgman, who is the Associate Director in the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Enforcement Division. Fox News may concentrate on the texts between Strozk and his FBI co-worker/lover Lisa Page, but they’re missing the mark entirely. After all, one of the major shareholders in Fox News is the recently rounded up and detained Las Vegas Shooting mastermind, Prince al-Walid bin Talal. It’s up to the alternative media to notify Congress of our independent research.

An Alice Market enables end-users and investors to create flexible contracts that meet their hedging and investment needs in a real-time, secure and anonymous electronic market. It also ensures that participants are not exposed to the possible failure of the parties with whom they contract.
Sidley Austin hired Cameron Kerry, the brother of former Secretary of State John Kerry (322 Skull and Bones member) and candidate for US President along side his brother bonesman George W. Bush, who stole the election from Al Gore in 2000.
One of the largest government sponsored industrial espionage thefts of copyrights, trade secrets, and patents in modern times was the theft of scalable social networking inventions. The technology and programming code that underlie Facebook, Gmail, YouTube, Twitter, Instagram and most the other large-scale social networking companies runs on Leader Technologies’ intellectual property.
It was stolen by a group of criminal lawyers, judges, spies and bankers working with complete impunity and in total disregard for the law. Under the guise of the IBM Eclipse Foundation, James P. Chandler III (who was a national security advisor and top White House attorney) led the group of criminals who, interestingly enough, are also appearing in the news currently due to their most recently discovered crimes, along with John Podesta, Robert Mueller, Rod Rosenstein, John Breyer, James Breyer, Larry Summers, Yuri Milner, Alisher Usmanov, Mark Zuckerberg, Sheryl Sandberg, Bill and Hillary Clinton, and a host of others who are not so well known.
Sidley Austin set up changes to the US Patent Laws in 2014, most likely for the purpose of tying up individual inventors in court and exhausting their financial resources.
The good news is the real inventor of Facebook, Twitter, Paypal and other scalable technologies, Leader Technologies, Inc.,recently filed a Miller Act request directly to President Trump, to expose the consortium of patent thieves who have hid behind shell companies, and have weaponized the technologies invented by his company.
The legal rights of Americans are threatened as never before. In No Contest, Ralph Nader and Wesley J. Smith reveal how power lawyers–Kenneth Starr perhaps the most notorious among them–misuse and manipulate the law at the expense of fairness and equity. Nader and Smith document how corporate lawyers
- File baseless lawsuits
- Use court secrecy to their unfair advantage
- Engage in billing fraud
Nader and Smith sound the warning that this system-wide abuse is eroding our basic legal rights, and propose a positive, commonsense vision of what should be done to reverse the corporate-inspired corruption of civil justice. Timely, incisive, and highly readable, this is a book for all citizens who believe that prompt access to justice is the backbone of democracy, and a precious right to be reclaimed.
Sidley Austin during the September 11 attacks
The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 personally affected the employees of Sidley Austin. Prior to the merger creating Sidley Austin Brown & Wood, which took place just four months before the September 11, 2001 terror attacks, the head office of Brown & Wood was in the World Trade Center, while Sidley & Austin New York office was located in offices on Third Avenue. Out of 600 employees who worked in the World Trade Center at the time of the attacks, one perished, a switchboard operator, Rosemary Smith.

Scott Bennett – Shell Game: Exposing Hillary’s Criminal Network in the State Department
(NEVADA CITY, CA) Scott Bennett, whistleblower, is speaking at the third Liberty Tour, sponsored by Paul Preston’s Agenda 21 Radio on July 11, 2015. Former Army intelligence officer and once private contractor to CIA financier Booze, Allen, Hamilton, Scott Bennett, the author of the book ‘Shell Game” a Military Whistleblowing Report to Congress:
Stated he gave Rolling Stone reporter Michael Hastings information about Swiss bank accounts which directly implicated former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Obama in the formation of I.S.I.S. just prior to Hastings being killed in a suspicious auto accident.
Scott explains the true story about the report which prompted Edward Snowden to go public with information about unconstitutional abuses against Americans by the National Security Agency, the Central Intelligence Agency, the Department of Justice and the President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama.
Judge Napolitano: Hillary Clinton Provided Material Assistance To Terrorists And Lied To Congress On FOX Business News July 5, 2015, FOX News chief legal correspondent Judge Andrew Napolitano told FBN host Charles Payne a “conspiracy existed” among President Obama, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Treasury Department and various Congressional leaders to have arms sent to rebels in Syria and Libya.
Napolitano came to the conclusion after going through several hundred pages of documents with FOX News’ intelligence correspondent Catherine Herridge. “A conspiracy existed between the president, and Mrs. Clinton, and Congressional leaders from both parties in both Houses others in the State Department, the Treasury Department and the Justice Department to get arms shipped to rebels in Syria and in Libya,” Napolitano said.
“Some of those rebels are members of organizations that are on the terror list and providing them with material assistance is a felony,” Napolitano explained. “So the arms dealers applied for and received permission from State and Treasury lawfully to sell arms to the government of Qatar and they lawfully did so.”
Qatar then sold, delivered, bartered or gave these arms to the terrorist organizations with the knowledge and consent of Hillary Rodham Clinton when she was Secretary of State. The fact is Fox News has had this information for a long time. Former Army psyop officer Scott Bennett, author of “SHELL GAME” Military Whistleblowing Report to Congress” was on Agenda 21 Radio May 12, 2015 and reported that extensive information he had which outlined in detail the felonious acts committed by Hillary Clinton, President Obama and numerous members of congress who knew and were involved in arms shipments from Qatar to Libya to Turkey and into Syria where the arms were given to ISIS.
The arms shipments were provided by the U.S. government under a plan devised by then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Scott pointed out that he had given Hannity, O’Reilly, Kelly and Van Sustern detailed information regarding Swiss bank accounts and the money that was transferred from the CIA into ISIS accounts by way of Booz, Allen Hamilton.
Additional e-mails were also given to FOX. Scott has contacted almost everyone in Congress and made them aware of the information he has that Fox News is now talking about. Better late than never.
David Shalala, the nephew of Donna Shalala, offered his legal services to Scott Bennett to keep everything covered up, and to make sure Scott ended up in prison…. but the reason he was sent to prison will surprise you.

The Covington and Burling Law Firm is involved, with Eric Holder as an alumni.
HSBC, Union Bank of Switzerland, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Obama, Holder, Clinton, Mueller, Comey and others are all treasonous and part of the operation to create ISIS and destabilize the Middle East. Benghazi is the key. General Mattis knows the truth, so does General Flynn. When Flynn testifies regarding his lying to the FBI about the fake Russian collusion saga, the truth about Benghazi will be put into the Congressional Record.
On June 21, 2017, we reported that Judicial Watch uncovered over 50,000 pages of documents relating to the Clinton/Obama Benghazi cover-up through a FOIA request. The Trump Administration’s Justice Department is stonewalling and will wait until at least October 18, 2017 to turn over the documents to Judicial Watch. It’s our belief that General Flynn needed to be charged with a crime before the Trump’s DOJ would release the records, to have everything in place for Flynn to testify in front of Congress.
The Justice Department instructs prosecutors that when Congress has given a federal offense its own conspiracy provision with a heightened punishment (as it has for money laundering, racketeering, narcotics trafficking, and other serious crimes), they may not charge a section 371 conspiracy. Section 371 is for less serious conspiracy cases. Using it for money laundering — which caps the sentence way below Congress’s intent for that behavior — subverts federal law and signals to the court that the prosecutor does not regard the offense as major.
Yet, that is exactly what Rosenstein’s office did, in a plea agreement his prosecutors co-signed with attorneys from the Justice Department’s Fraud Section. (See in the Hill’s report, the third document embedded at the bottom, titled “Mikerin Plea Deal.”) No RICO, no extortion, no fraud — and the plea agreement is careful not to mention any of the extortions in 2009 and 2010, before CFIUS approved Rosatom’s acquisition of U.S. uranium stock.
Mikerin just had to plead guilty to a nominal “money laundering” conspiracy charge. This insulated him from a real money-laundering sentence. Thus, he got a term of just four years’ incarceration for a major national-security crime — which, of course, is why he took the plea deal and waived his right to appeal, sparing the Obama administration a full public airing of the facts.
Interestingly, as the plea agreement shows, the Obama DOJ’s Fraud Section was then run by Andrew Weissmann, who is now one of the top prosecutors in Robert Mueller’s ongoing special-counsel investigation of suspected Trump collusion with Russia. There was still one other problem to tamp down. That was the informant, — the lobbyist William Campbell, who alerted the FBI to the Russian racketeering enterprise back in 2009. He wanted to talk. Specifically, as his attorney, Ms. Toensing, explains, the informant wanted to tell Congress what he knows — about what the FBI and the Justice Department could already have proved in 2010 when CFIUS signed off on Russia’s acquisition of American nuclear material, and about what he’d learned of Russian efforts to curry favor with Bill and Hillary Clinton.
But he was not allowed to talk. It turns out, the lawyer explains, that the FBI had induced him to sign a non-disclosure agreement. The Justice Department warned him that it was enforceable — even against disclosures to Congress. (Because, you know, the FBI is opposed to all leaks and disclosures of confidential investigative information . . . except those initiated by the FBI, of course.)
