Appeals Court Supports FBI Policy of Entrapping Individuals to Plot Acts of Terrorism*

Appeals Court Supports FBI Policy of Entrapping Individuals to Plot Acts of Terrorism*

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals issued a ruling that provides further support for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and its policy of inducing individuals, typically Muslims, to plot acts of terrorism. The appeals court additionally backed the outcome of the notorious FBI sting operation against the Newburgh Four.

Mohamed Mohamud is a young Somali American man who was convicted of attempting to bomb a Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Portland, Oregon, after he was targeted in an FBI sting operation. He is currently serving a 30-year prison sentence.

His defense appealed a district court decision that affirmed his conviction. They challenged the fact that Mohamud’s “defense of entrapment” was rejected. They also challenged a district court’s decision not to suppress information collected through surveillance under section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

At trial, as the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals notes [PDF], Mohamud’s defense maintained a

 “teenager with no criminal record had neither the means nor the intent to commit domestic terrorism” until he became involved with an undercover FBI contractor, who went by the name of Bill Smith, and FBI agents, who went by the names of Youssef and Hussein. However, the government contended Mohamud’s actions before he was targeted by the FBI, such as articles he wrote for “Jihad Recollections,” indicated his “readiness to commit such a horrific act of violence” and proved he was “predisposed” to commit a crime.

James Cromitie, one of the Newburgh Four convicted of domestic terrorism offenses and sentenced to 25 years in prison, claimed the government persuaded him to engage in the plot and violated his due process. But the Second Circuit determined there were no violations of his rights, even if the government “invented all the details of the scheme” because Cromitie had expressed desire to “do something to America” and “die like a martyr.”

The Second Circuit additionally concluded government agents were permitted to target a person’s religious affiliation in order to “probe the attitudes” of an individual who may want to “do something to America.” They are allowed to “learn whether his religious views have impelled him toward the violent brand of radical Islam that poses a dire threat to the United States.”

In Cromitie’s case, his defense argued the government informant exploited a relationship to “manipulate Cromitie into agreeing to the planned attacks” on a synagogue and military targets at a National Guard base. But the Ninth Circuit believes the “illusory cultivation of emotional intimacy” is allowed. Even though the government informant offered Cromitie, a poor black man, $250,000 in cash, a barbershop valued at $70,000, a new BMW, as well as a two-week vacation, this was not deemed an entrapment scheme that violated his due process.

At sentencing, Judge Colleen McMahon declared,

“The essence of what occurred here is that a government, understandably zealous to protect its citizens from terrorism, came upon a man both bigoted and suggestible, one who was incapable of committing an act of terrorism on his own…I suspect that real terrorists would not have bothered themselves with a person who was so utterly inept…Only the government could have made a terrorist out of Mr. Cromitie, whose buffoonery is positively Shakespearean in scope.”

Nevertheless, this case is part of a body of law that permits government agents and their informants to prey on vulnerable American Muslims and engage in highly questionable acts.

When the defense learned the government collected information on Mohamud under section 702 and did not notify the defense, the defense moved to suppress the evidence and requested a new trial. The defense insisted “evidence of additional surveillance” would have made it possible for the defense to “impeach the government’s narrative with respect to the propriety of the investigation” into Mohamud.

According to defense attorneys, the government surveillance against Mohamud made it possible for agents to

“gain an incredibly intimate understanding of Mohamed that was then used to tailor the sting operation in a way that would maximize the likelihood that he would carry through with the eventual plan. Whether this inducement was through exploiting known vulnerabilities, such as Mohamed’s confusion about his religion and need for a father-figure, or whether it was by mimicking language found in earlier communications, any evidence of additional government surveillance was necessary to allow the jury to fully assess the government’s conduct.”

It was Youssef, an informant that pretended to be from a fake religious council, who asked Mohamud “what he would do for the cause.” Mohamud told him “anything.” Youssef then suggested “five ways to be a good Muslim.” Under the guise of guidance, he said Mohamud could pray five times a day,” “go to school to learn something that would help the brothers overseas, such as engineering or medicine,” “raise money for the brothers,” “become operational,” or “become a martyr.” Mohamud showed interest in becoming “operational.”

Although the Ninth Circuit recognizes “the undercover agents frequently flattered and praised Mohamud for his good writing or behavior” and Youssef pushed him to make a “goodbye video,” it does not think this conduct against a 19 year-old college student was enough to constitute entrapment.

Remarkably, the court concludes:

Many young people think and say alarming things that they later disavow, and we will never know if Mohamud—a young man with promise—would have carried out a mass attack absent the FBI’s involvement. But some “promising” young people—Charles Whitman, Timothy McVeigh, and James Holmes, to name a few from a tragically long list—take the next step, leading to horrific consequences. While technology makes it easier to capture the thoughts of these individuals, it also makes it easier for them to commit terrible crimes. Here, the evidence supported the jury’s verdict, and the government’s surveillance, investigation, and prosecution of Mohamud were consistent with constitutional and statutory requirements.

The fact that the Ninth Circuit selected three white mass murderers to make this statement does not make it less alarming. The Ninth Circuit is co-signing a dangerous concept of radicalization among law enforcement, which is that the adoption of radical beliefs is some kind of first step toward committing terrorism. This can significantly infringe upon the First Amendment.

It was the FBI that transported Mohamud to Portland to commit the “attack.” The FBI contacted Mohamud after he struggled to contact terrorists he was apparently trying to reach overseas.

In the study [PDF], “Inventing Terrorism: The Lawfare of Preemptive Prosecution,” attorneys Stephen Downs and Kathy Manley wrote,

“Ordinarily the law prohibits the government from entrapping innocent citizens into crime, but the law provides an exception when the target is ‘predisposed.’”

“Although the term ‘predisposed’ usually describes someone who was already involved in similar criminal activity, or where evidence shows he or she was inclined to do so without any government inducement, in pre-emptive prosecution cases the government has successfully claimed that the term can mean that the target ‘readily responded’ to the inducement and did not subsequently withdraw from the plot.”

That is what the Ninth Circuit emphasized in this ruling.

“So far, this ‘ready response’ theory has been upheld by the courts, and so in all practical respects the entrapment defense no longer exists. Moreover, it appears that based on Islamophobia and ignorance about Islam, Muslims are often considered to be predisposed to terrorism simply due to their religion, especially if they are religiously conservative.”

Thunderstorm Asthma! What Is Really Going On?*

Thunderstorm Asthma! What Is Really Going On?*

By Stefan Stanford

Back in November 29th of 2013, France’s The Observers’ reported acid rain in Ahvaz, Iran had poisoned thousands of Iranians though the exact number was never found out because Iranian authorities imposed strict censorship upon hospitals there. One of the most polluted cities in the world, residents said “it’s like the city is cursed” after also suffering through 25 years of the horrors of war

Patients suffering from breathing problems had filled up emergency rooms for several weeks as more and more ‘acid rain’ fell on the city in western Iran. According to the local media there, more than 20,000 people were hospitalized over the month of November 2013 alone though the number could have been much higher.

While some said the town looked like some kind of nuclear wasteland, ANP finds it quite interesting that Ahvaz, Iran on November 2 of 2013 is listed by Wikipedia as being one of the very few locations across the world to have ever been struck by ‘thunderstorm asthma’, the ‘death hanging in the air’ that recently hospitalized nearly 10,000+ in Australia while killing at least 8.

With respiratory illnesses growing in Kyrgyzstan and across the world, ANP has been asked by several readers to take a new look at this mystery that has caught the world by surprise that JD Heyes over at Natural News recently called “Biological warfare-like ‘thunderstorm asthma’” along with several videos that ask what is really going on there? Interestingly, an outbreak of scurvy also recently hit Australia and may be moving on to New Zealand next. Much more on that in our next story.

According to Wikipedia, there have been 10 ‘significant events’ of thunderstorm asthma, however, they only date back to July 6th of 1983 in Birmingham, England. Australia has been struck 5 times while Naples, Italy and London, England were also hit. The most recent episode of thunderstorm asthma wasn’t even Australia, however, as on December 1st, the country of Kuwait was also hit leading to the deaths of 5, rounding out the 10 significant thunderstorm asthma events. Interestingly, Susan Duclos pointed out that 2016 is the only year that ‘thunderstorm asthma’ has hit twice.

Also according to Wikipedia, most of those affected by ‘thunderstorm asthma’ have NEVER had an asthma attack before. However, 95% of those that were affected by thunderstorm asthma had a history of hayfever, and 96% of those people had tested positive to grass pollen allergies, particularly rye grass.

According to this new story from Yahoo Australia, ‘thunderstorm asthma shows a worrying trend’. Struck by thunderstorm asthma back in 1987, 1989, 1997, and 2010 before the mass outbreak in November, authorities report there is a new thunderstorm asthma warning in effect for this weekend in certain parts of the country.

And while the recent thunderstorm asthma attack that struck Melbourne has been called the worst thunderstorm asthma attack to ever strike the world and Health Minister Jill Hennessy said it was like “having 150 bombs going off at once right across Melbourne”, the people we’ve communicated with from Australia as well as each of the videographers below aren’t buying the official explanation.

Going back to the 2013 story from France’s Observers, according to Iran’s Pulse news, Khuzestan’s environmental protection officer blamed ‘acid rain’ on high concentrations of nitrates in the air. Keep in mind the Wikipedia report that Ahvaz also suffered from one of the most significant cases of ‘thunderstorm asthma’ during this exact same time period.

The weather has always been awful in Ahvaz, for as long as I can remember. But it gets worse every year. This year, we had dust storms and, more recently, acid rain that has caused people to become sick. Last time it fell, I had to go to hospital because I had trouble breathing. The people that took care of me didn’t really know what to do. The nurses just gave me medication and put me on respiratory support. It cost me 100,000 tomans (about 30 euros). There were many people, mainly children and older people, and the medical personnel looked overwhelmed. After an hour or two, I was able to go home.

Last Wednesday, a new round of acid rain caused many people to get sick. According to what I heard, thousands went to the hospital. Those people who protested against the dam on the Karun River now intend to protest against the pollution and the unbearable living conditions that cause Ahvaz to resemble a ghost town. Indeed, it looks like some kind of nuclear wasteland.

In the videos below, our videographers ask what is ‘thunderstorm asthma’ and ask what really is going on in Australia as the death toll rose again and as our videographer asks in the final video below, is thunderstorm asthma really some kind of bio-warfare or attack? Were places like Ahvaz, Iran used as testing grounds for some kind of deadly chemical/biological weapons? And might all of this be some sick part of the globalists depopulation agenda?

And were chemtrails involved in the illnesses as has been suggested by some living in Australia who had reported being heavily chemtrailed in the days prior? As Steve Quayle warned us long ago in his book, ‘Weather Warfare and Other Un-Natural Disasters,’ weather warfare IS real…are we now witnessing some kind of it dating back to 1983?

For those concerned, an interesting website called ‘Flu Trackers’ uses data from journalists, citizens and other news sources from all around the world compiled in a forum form.

The Real Number of Child Victims Will Shock You*

The Real Number of Child Victims Will Shock You*

By Susan Duclos

While many have heard the term “Pizzagate” by now, which began with claims that information found on Anthony Weiner’s lap top revealed the existence of a pedophilia ring. From there it snowballed after Wikileaks released the Podesta emails, where references to food, such as “Hot Dogs,” Pizza,” “Cheese,”  and others were  claimed to have been “keyword” references to children and sex.

We have been asked here at ANP why we haven’t reported on “Pizzagate,” and our response was simple, there was so much true information mixed in with so much disinformation (most likely by people trying to discredit Alternative Media), that separating the two is, in and of itself, a full time job.

That response stands……. but with all the reporting of “conspiracy theory,” and claims that all of “Pizzagate” is just “Fake News,” what the MSM and many others are missing, is the chance to use this issue in an attempt to finally get Americans to acknowledge and engage in an issue that has been ongoing and which affects children in all 50 states.

CHILD SEX TRAFFICKING IN AMERICA IS REAL

Child sex trafficking is an ugly reality, it is something that Americans would rather not look too deeply into, and yet right now with “Pizzagate” driving headlines all across the internet, is the perfect time to highlight the statistics, the numbers, the very lucrative business it has become not only across the world, but right here in America.

In 2014 it was reported that over 100,000 child in America, a year, were victims of sex trafficking, and those numbers are low because many of the victims are silenced because they are still enslaved. According to some reports, there are 100,000 to 300,000 underage girls being sold for sex in America each year. Those numbers do not represent the overall totals when those not considered minors are included.

According to the International Labour Organization in 2014, worldwide, whether it is sexual exploitation or economic exploitation, trafficking has become a very lucrative business for traffickers, bringing them &150 billion a year.

The ILO report, Profits and Poverty: The Economics of Forced Labour , said two thirds of the estimated total of US$ 150 billion, or US$ 99 billion, came from commercial sexual exploitation, while another US$ 51 billion resulted from forced economic exploitation, including domestic work, agriculture and other economic activities.

In Septemeber 2016, Fact Retriever published “55 Little Know Facts About human Trafficking,” with a few pertinent to this article shown below.

– Approximately 75-80% of human trafficking is for sex

– An estimated 30,000 victims of sex trafficking die each year from abuse, disease, torture, and neglect. Eighty percent of those sold into sexual slavery are under 24, and some are as young as six years old.

– Although human trafficking is often a hidden crime and accurate statistics are difficult to obtain, researchers estimate that more than 80% of trafficking victims are female. Over 50% of human trafficking victims are children.

– Most human trafficking in the United States occurs in New York, California, and Florida. – Sex traffickers often recruit children because not only are children more unsuspecting and vulnerable than adults, but there is also a high market demand for young victims. Traffickers target victims on the telephone, on the Internet, through friends, at the mall, and in after-school programs.

Belgium, Germany, Greece, Israel, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Thailand, Turkey, and the U.S. are ranked very high as destination countries of trafficked victims.

– Women are trafficked to the U.S. largely to work in the sex industry (including strip clubs, peep and touch shows, massage parlors that offer sexual services, and prostitution). They are also trafficked to work in sweatshops, domestic servitude, and agricultural work.

– Human trafficking is one of the fastest growing criminal enterprises because it holds relatively low risk with high profit potential. Criminal organizations are increasingly attracted to human trafficking because, unlike drugs, humans can be sold repeatedly.

– In approximately 54% of human trafficking cases, the recruiter is a stranger, and in 46% of the cases, the recruiters know the victim. Fifty-two percent of human trafficking recruiters are men, 42% are women, and 6% are both men and women.

– Human traffickers often work with corrupt government officials to obtain travel documents and seize passports.

– Human trafficking has been reported in all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and in some U.S. territories.

Below is the 2015 annual statistical report from the National Human Trafficking Resource Center (NHTRC). The following information is based on incoming signals made to the NHTRC from January 1, 2015 – December 31, 2015 about human trafficking cases and issues related to human trafficking in the United States and U.S. territories. Signals refer to incoming communications with the NHTRC and can take the form of phone calls, online tip reports, or emails. Signals regarding topics unrelated to human trafficking are not included in this report. In 2015, the NHTRC received a total of 24,757 signals nationwide.

On page three and four of the embedded document below are a list of states with the number of reports received in each state.

HOW TO IDENTIFY A VICTIM OF CHILD HUMAN TRAFFICKING

The U.S. Department of Education provides some tell-tale signs that school staff and administrators should be on the lookout for to identify a victim, and while these signs are geared toward identifying victims that are still allowed to attend school, many can also apply to friends, family or community members, as well.

Demonstrates an inability to attend school on a regular basis and/or has unexplained absences; Frequently runs away from home; Makes references to frequent travel to other cities; Exhibits bruises or other signs of physical trauma, withdrawn behavior, depression, anxiety, or fear; Lacks control over his or her schedule and/or identification or travel documents; Is hungry, malnourished, deprived of sleep, or inappropriately dressed (based on weather conditions or surroundings); Shows signs of drug addiction; Has coached/rehearsed responses to questions; Demonstrates a sudden change in attire, personal hygiene, relationships, or material possessions; Acts uncharacteristically promiscuous and/or makes references to sexual situations or terminology that are beyond age-specific norms; Has a “boyfriend” or “girlfriend” who is noticeably older; Attempts to conceal recent scars.

To report suspected trafficking crimes, get help, or learn more about human trafficking from a nongovernmental organization, call the toll-free (24/7) National Human Trafficking Resource Center at 1-888-373-7888

To report suspected human trafficking crimes or to get help from law enforcement, call toll-free (24/7) 1-866-347-2423 or submit a tip online at www.ice.gov/tips.

To report sexually exploited or abused minors, call the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children’s (NCMEC) hotline at 1-800-THE-LOST, or report incidents at http://www.cybertipline.org.

BOTTOM LINE

This is bigger and much uglier than the “Pizzagate” talk on the internet, this is a verifiable, proven and documented problem that potentially affects hundreds of thousands Americans, including family members and friends of the victims. Every child that accesses the internet, visits chatrooms, has a social media account, has after school activities, etc…. is a potential victim.

It is happening in all 50 states and Washington D.C.

This should be the national discussion right now.

Cosmic Rays Evolve Consciousness and Transform DNA*

 

By Andrew Collins

29 years ago, in the year 1987, something happened and the world felt it. The first globally synchronized meditation – commonly known as the first “Harmonic Convergence” – took place.

Tens of thousands of people gathered all around the world at sacred sites around the planet to co-ordinate their intention. What intention? José Arguelles, who initiated the meditation put it this way:

“There comes a point when things have to change. A vibration signal was sent out.

“Where the signal was coming from – whether it was coming from our genetic coding, whether it was coming from the Earth, whether it was coming from outer space, or whether it was coming from all of those – this signal went out and people responded to a signal.

“It is very much like when a species gets a signal to change the direction of its migration pattern.”

Even though the status quo resisted these new ideas, more and more people began seeing through the old paradigm of war, environmental destruction, poverty, slavery and materialism, and instead opened their eyes and minds to a more wholistic worldview.

People began questioning the many structures of society, and suppressed information began to resurface and become available to the masses.

Ever since 1987, human consciousness has experienced a noticeable acceleration.

Now what is this all about? And why 26 years ago? Is this just some new age speculative talk?

As much as world change is not a concept that needs to be backed up by science to be recognized as important, interesting studies have shown that this evolutionary movement isn’t just a coincidence or a simple initiative of a few individuals. The whole cosmos seems to be in.

Cosmic Rays and Human DNA

Before delving into the significance of the year 1987, let’s explore what scientists have discovered to be a key factor in the evolution of life: Cosmic rays.

Cosmic rays are light waves of a very high frequency that have been shown to transform human DNA  – therefore affecting human evolution.

In fact, an analysis of ice cores extracted from polar stations in Greenland and Antarctica have demonstrated that about 12,000 years ago and 34,000 years ago, an incredible increase in cosmic rays occurred.

Scientists were astonished to find that both times correspond to periods of great leaps in human evolution in terms of art, technology and state of consciousness.

Andrew Collins, a science and history writer who has studied the effects of cosmic rays, said:

“The effects of cosmic rays on our own genetics has led to mutations within the body, within the mind, the brain, that has altered our perception of reality…

“The correspondence between ancient cosmic ray levels and sudden evolutionary leaps and human technology and art are facts.”

Even as far back as 1973, famous science writer and astronomer Carl Sagan spoke about how cosmic rays cause DNA mutations and would have affected human evolution.

Cosmic rays are passing through the Earth and our bodies all the time due to ambient processes of the cosmos – hence why there is always a slow and gradual evolution taking place.

However, in 1987 – the same year when a spark of change was being felt across the world – something different took place.

A Supernova occurred close enough to the Earth that it was visible to the naked eye. Cool, but what does that have to do with anything?

A Supernova is a rare stellar explosion so powerful that its radiation can briefly outshine an entire galaxy, releasing as much energy as the sun is expected to emit over its whole life. What type of energy are supernova’s known to emit?

You guessed it: Cosmic rays. 1987’s supernova – scientifically referred to as Supernova 1987A – propelled evolution-inducing cosmic rays throughout the universe that have reached planet Earth and are still affecting us to this day.

In 1987, an evolution in consciousness began – followed by a growing global movement for change. Coincidence or not, the connection between rising frequencies and rising consciousness is factual.

“Are you aware that a Shift in human consciousness is occurring, even as you read these words, that employs celestial triggers such as supernovas and Earth’s alignment with Galactic Centre in the years leading up to 2012, to trigger the evolution of our species?” – Sol Luckman

Around and after the year of 1987, many other celestial events have occurred; the most known being a massive increase in solar flares (also producing cosmic rays) and a rapid decrease of the Earth’s magnetic field – both of which are happening to this day.

The Earth’s magnetic field is known to act as a shield against high frequencies… so what happens when it weakens? All the goodness of high frequencies seeps right in.

Now many would think this is crazy because of the common belief that they are dangerous, however the purpose of cosmic rays and other high frequencies isn’t to fry us alive; but to gradually instigate the evolution of our DNA; the blueprint of our level of consciousness.

According to medical science, we have 2 strands of DNA and 10 strands of “junk” DNA which are believed to have no purpose whatsoever.

But what if this so-called “junk” DNA is merely dormant DNA? Studies show that our dormant DNA is now reactivating.

Dr. Berrenda Fox, physiologist and naturopath (who was later on “silenced” by the government and given a bad name to suppress such information) said it herself:

“Everyone has one double helix of DNA. What we are finding is that there are other helixes that are being formed. In the double helix there are two strands of DNA coiled into a spiral.

“It is my understanding that we will be developing twelve helixes. During this time, which seems to have started maybe 5 to 20 years ago, we have been mutating.

“This is the scientific explanation. It is a mutation of our species into something for which the end result is not yet known.

“I am working with three children right now who have three DNA helixes… Some adults that I have tested actually do have another DNA helix forming. Some are even getting their third.

“These people are going through a lot of major shifts in their consciousness and physical bodies, because it is all one. In my opinion, the Earth and everyone here is raising its vibration…

“A lot of the old paradigms can no longer exist, yet are fighting to be maintained, but there is no doubt that it is changing. Those of us who have chose to live at this time are the forerunners of almost a new species.”

Could this be the beginning of another evolutionary leap? I think so.

U.S. Military Veterans Asked Lakota Elders for Forgiveness*

From Alexandra Bruce

 

What happened in a ceremony last week may have been too little, too late but it was nonetheless an unexpected, yet a very welcome moment of healing at the Lakota Sioux Standing Rock Reservation.

Dozens of U.S. military veterans officially traveled there and asked Native elders for forgiveness, for genocide, stolen land and endless broken treaties, on behalf of the U.S.

Military with the Lakota Nation, from the 19th century to the present.

Quoting Wes Clarke, Jr., the son of former U.S. Presidential Candidate, General Wesley K. Clark (Army):

“We fought you. We took your land. We signed treaties that we broke. We stole minerals from your sacred hills. We blasted the faces of our presidents onto your sacred mountain… We didn’t respect you, we polluted your Earth, we’ve hurt you in so many ways but we’ve come to say that we are sorry. We are at your service and we beg for your forgiveness.”

As sang the King of Soul, Sam Cooke in the early 1960s:

“It’s been a long time coming,

but I know a change is gonna come.”

Let us ensure that this vital moment does not simply fade away, as another broken promise to our Native American brothers and sisters.
