Keeping the Score: Fat Cats vs. Whistleblowers

Exposed Government Criminals- Where They Are Today

For the last several years former CIA officer Philip Giraldi has been fearlessly reporting and writing on two no-no topics for the US government and its extension- the US media: Espionage and Illegal Arms Trafficking by Israel and Turkey, facilitated by a group of treasonous US officials. Despite Giraldi’s credentials as a former CIA operative, his extensive first-hand knowledge and experience, and no matter the amount of documentation and numerous well-established cases he presents, these alarming facts and trends always go ignored or intentionally blacked-out by the mainstream and pseudo alternative media alike.

On August 1, 2013, Giraldi published another damning article in his long-running series involving espionage and arms trafficking by the two major US allies, facilitated by their extensions within the US government: [Read more...]

Indeed, Whistleblowers Are Traitors- Traitors to the Traitors

Don’t Be Traitors to Those Who Have Honorably Betrayed the Real Traitors to the People

Over 200 years ago our Founding Fathers signed the United States Declaration of Independence. They were branded as traitors by their then government. They were traitors to the British Empire. In short, they were traitors.

The most famous offenders of the eighteenth-century English treason laws were the American revolutionaries.  The Declaration of Independence violated the 3rd law of treason in this statement: "And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm Reliance on the Protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other out Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor": [Read more...]

That Most Charming of Couples: Nationalism and Hypocrisy

“Unlimited power in the hands of psychopaths- My own country truly scares me.”

By William Blum

It’s not easy being a flag-waving American nationalist. In addition to having to deal with the usual disillusion, anger, and scorn from around the world incited by Washington’s endless bombings and endless wars, the nationalist is assaulted by whistle blowers like Bradley Manning and Edward Snowden, who have disclosed a steady stream of human-rights and civil-liberties scandals, atrocities, embarrassing lies, and embarrassing truths. Believers in “American exceptionalism” and “noble intentions” have been hard pressed to keep the rhetorical flag waving by the dawn’s early light and the twilight’s last gleaming. [Read more...]

Classified Woman: A Review at the Whistle- The Newsletter of Whistleblowers Australia by Brian Martin

The Lessons for To Be-Whistleblowers on Paths to be Taken or Not

Brian Martin has written an informative and well-written review of my book, Classified Woman: The Sibel Edmonds Story, in the July 2013 edition of the Australian magazine-The Whistle. It is an honor to have my memoir reviewed by a solid and highly informative site in Australia dedicated to whistleblowers. I know the author checked all the boxes in writing a review that is all facts based and comprehensive in highlighting the saga of whistleblowers in the age of war on whistleblowers, and I am thankful for his hard work.

Here are a few excerpts from the review, but I encourage you to read the entire piece, and this not for the purpose of promoting my book, but to have a better understanding of the notion of whistleblowing, the price paid by the truth-tellers to inform the public, and the lessons for to-be whistleblowers on the paths to take or not to take: [Read more...]

The Guardian UK: Guardian of the Truth, or, Guardian of the Establishment?

When Judging the Source Do Not Disregard its Track Record

It is not easy to be the one who bears bad news, questions what’s beneath glitzy packaging, or the one who throws cold water on seemingly good news. Trust me it isn’t. We all want to feel good. It is much easier to cheer than to question and criticize. We want heroes. We like pedestals and figures to worship. I don’t know why but it is what it is, and I am who I am- daring to be unpopular with questions that need to be asked and answers that have to be sought.

We have news and information, and we have sources. The source is as important, or even more important, than the information or the news. This is a fact-the blunt and indisputable reality. Whether you like it or not. [Read more...]

Breaking the Set: NSA Whistleblower Russell Tice on NSA Spying on & Blackmailing of Elected and Appointed Officials

“The recent NSA scandal only scratches the surface of a massive surveillance apparatus.”

Villains, Heroes & Villain-Made Heroes

The Real Truth is Never Popular-When Truth Really Matters

We often hear of viewing the world in black and white terms. In many of my interviews I talk about the tendency of people to simplify politics by dividing its actors into two groups: guys in white hats versus guys in black hats. I don’t know how much of this is cultural, nor have I pinpointed a correlation further explaining this phenomenon. But I know one thing: in our current political world filled with deception and showcased on a stage of smoke and mirrors, this trend of seeking absolute heroes and villains counters the ultimate goal of finding the truth and real answers.

The EyeOpener Report- Obama’s War on Whistleblowers (And What to Do About It)

BFP VideoThe gulf that exists between the Obama of the campaign trail and Obama's actions since taking office has been glaringly obvious since the very beginning of his presidency, from his promise to close Guantanamo to his promise not to employ lobbyists to his promise to increase governmental transparency; there have been no shortage of examples of Obama's duplicity. Until recently, however, his arch defenders have merely covered their eyes and pretended not to see these glaring hypocrisies, decrying his opponents as racist and Obama as a well-meaning president who has been hampered by Republican interference.

One of the clearest and most remarkable signs that Obama was not what he claimed to be has always been the war on whistleblowers his administration has been waging since the moment he took office. This war, unprecedented in scale or scope in the history of the United States, has been waged quietly for years, apparently out of sight of the fawning media and Obama-supporting Democrats.

Join us for this week’s EyeOpener Report to examine Obama’s ruthless and belligerent war waged against whistleblowers and truth-tellers, and find out what to do about it.

America: Government by Terror, Torture & Tyranny

Coming Forward Threatens America's Imperial Ambitions

America governs lawlessly. Out-of-control rogues run things. Conditions go from bad to worse. Tyranny threatens everyone. So does possible global war.

Fear-mongering, saber rattling, hot wars, proxy ones, drone ones, geopolitical ones, financial ones, anti-populist ones, mass incarceration, censorship, lawless sanctions, subversion, sabotage, targeted assassinations, mass murder, cyberwar, and horrific draconian harshness reflect out-of control governance gone mad.

The Leading Whistleblower of All Time: Philip Agee

There’s no former CIA officer more hated by members of the intelligence establishment than Agee; no one’s even close

Before there was Edward Snowden, William Binney and Thomas Drake … before there was Bradley Manning, Sibel Edmonds and Jesselyn Radack … there was Philip Agee. What Agee revealed is still the most startling and important information about US foreign policy that any American government whistleblower has ever revealed.

Philip Agee spent 12 years (1957-69) as a CIA case officer, most of it in Latin America. His first book, Inside the Company: CIA Diary, published in 1974 – a pioneering work on the Agency’s methods and their devastating consequences – appeared in about 30 languages around the world and was a best seller in many countries; it included a 23-page appendix with the names of hundreds of undercover Agency operatives and organizations.

The EyeOpener Report- Compromised: How the National Security State Blackmails the Government

BFP VideoWhile the world watches every twist and turn in the unfolding Edward Snowden drama, the story becomes less and less about the information he revealed and more and more about an international manhunt. But if the issues of PRISM and spying on China and GCHQ's spying at the G20 are falling off the radar, then how much further off the radar is the story of Russell Tice?

Join us for this week’s EyeOpener Report to examine political blackmail-from J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI, to Ruppert Murdoch’s hacking scandal, the latest revelations by NSA whistleblower Russ Tice and FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds, and the role of the US media as gatekeeper for these government illegalities by censorship and or well-designed misdirection.

America: Police State Ruthlessness Writ Large

Washington Prioritizes State Terrorism

Cold-blooded barbarity reflects US policy. Democracy's more illusion than reality. Rule of law principles don't matter. They're systematically spurned.

Dissent's increasingly targeted. Freedom's imperiled. Obama's ruthless. He exceeds the worst of George Bush. He's waging war on truth-tellers. He targeted more whistleblowers than all his predecessors combined. [Read more...]

A Former President Suggests Self-Censorship; What Does That Mean for America?

A Different America is Being Created

By Linda Lewis

Recently, at the Clinton Global Initiative in Chicago, Trish Reagan asked former President Bill Clinton to share his thoughts on domestic surveillance by the National Security Agency (NSA) for Bloomberg TV.

Clinton defended the NSA programs as necessary, saying, “I don't see any alternative to trying to track all of these groups around the world that are trying to basically wreck the ordinary operations of life in America or kill a lot of people, and so far I'm not persuaded that they've done more harm than good."
