OBAMA NOMINATES SPY STATE CONSIGLIERI TO REPLACE JUSTICE SCALIA

Judge Garland’s wealth grew over $800,000 annually for 17 years while he backed his Clinton & Bush spy state sponsors in the NSA, FBI, Justice Department and Raytheon

Contributing Writers | Opinion | AMERICANS FOR INNOVATION  | Mar. 16, 2016, Updated Mar. 21, 2016 | PDF
Merrick B. Garland, Obama Supreme Court nominee
Fig. 1 – Judge Merrick B. Garland. On Mar. 16, 2016, President Obama nominated Judge Garland to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia. Investigation so far into Judge Garland's history reveals his intimate relationship with the Washington Cartel who led the secret expansion of NSA surveillance under the Patriot Act snooping provisions. As is well known, this snooping included the illegal bulk surveillance of Americans by the NSA. This legacy should disqualify Garland. In addition, Garland would be another Harvard Law graduate on an already Harvard-stacked court.

Judge Garland was appointed to the DC Circuit Court in 1995 by Bill Clinton. He worked closely with Clinton confidante, James P. Chandler. Chandler has been IBM's chief outside counsel, founder of the IBM Eclipse Foundation in 2001, and patent counsel to Columbus, Ohio innovator, Leader Technologies starting in 2000.

Chandler stole Leader's social networking invention in 2002, then secretly fed it to IBM and IBM's Eclipse Foundation membership. The evidence is now overwhelming that Mark Zuckerberg and others used this stolen Leader source code to start Facebook and other social platforms. These social platforms were custom-made to give the NSA a cheaper, faster, easier platform for mass surveillance.

(Mar. 16, 2016)The now familiar fingerprints of the Washington Cartel are all over D.C. Circuit Judge Merrick B. Garland, Obama’s nominee to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia.

Update Mar. 21, 2016. Cartel on the move. The Washington Cartel appears intent on overwhelming watchdogs with coordinated actions on multiple fronts:  1  Barack Obama nominated Cartel deep-cover consiglieri Judge Garland,  2  Facebook's larcenous Mark Zuckerberg met with China's notorious progaganda chief,  3  George Soros-backed online voting software in Utah is a harbinger of 2016 vote manipulation/fraud,  4  Barack Obama is foisting Google Internet services on Cuba, and  5  Trump events were disrupted by wise guys from George Soros-funded MoveOrg.org, then Trump was blamed for their violence.

Harvard Skew

Harvard anti-logo

We'll start with Judge Garland's education. He's yet another Harvard Law School graduate. This fact alone should disqualify him since five (5) of the eight (8) current justices are also Harvard graduates. American jurisprudence is already horribly skewed to the Harvard Law worldview. This imbalance can only be corrected by diversifying the Supreme Court to include lawyers who represent a broad range of educational backgrounds. The country is currently choking on all things Harvard.

The Harvard skew extends throughout the Obama Administration, especially in banking and technology by a cartel that is in the process of taking over the Internet with the recently Obama-endorsed "Internet of Things." Click here for the Top 33 Harvard corruptors.

These people include the heads of the CIA In-Q-Tel venture capital firm, Facebook, Instagram, Obamacare, Google, White House technology, JPMorgan, Goldman Sachs, Justice Department, SEC, Commerce, State Department and others in Silicon Valley.

Where are the Protestants?

Further, Garland is Jewish. The court does not now, and would not in the future, reflect a balance of belief systems consistent with the American population. We need to move the court toward balance, not further away from it.

For example, Protestant Christians make up approximately 53% of the American population, yet there is not a single Protestant on the court. Following John Paul Stevens's retirement in June 2010, the Court has an entirely non-Protestant composition for the first time in its history

Facts:
Protestant Christians
53% of the United States population,
0% (0 of 9) representation on the U.S. Supreme Court

Jewish
2.2% of the United States population,
44% (4 of 9) representation with a Garland appointment

Follow the Money

Merrick B. Garland
Judge Merrick B. Garland, Chief Judge, D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals (1995-current)

$3,456,340 (1995)

At his Nov. 30, 1995 Senate confirmation hearing, Judge Garland disclosed his net worth at $3,456,340.

$19,055,000 (2012)

On Judge Garland's 2012 financial disclosure, he disclosed that his net worth has jumped up to $19,055,000 million. Note: Judicial financial disclosures are dubiously vague. Rather than give actual amounts, they show ranges. For example: P1: $1,000,000 to $5,000,000. Many sins can be and are hidden in such wild ranges. The Judiciary Club takes care of its own first, followed by political sponsors, large attorney firms, financiers, corporate glad-handers, and lastly, the American people.

In short, while working as a full time federal judge for the last 17 years, Judge Garland's net worth increased magically an average of $823,000 per year.

Judge Garland profits beat Bernie Madoff!
Even Bernie Madoff could not best Judge Merrick B. Garland's portfolio returns.
Even Bernie Madoff did not promise what Judge Garland achieved in 17 years of portfolio profits.
Photo: Portfolio.
Judge Garland averaged 32% (or $823,000) per year in net gains from his investment portfolio. By comparison, even Bernie Madoff's scam promised investors only about 12% per year. Genius or inside trader? It's one or the other.

It is now evident that the Washington Cartel rewards its secret society with investment tips to judges, bureaucrats and politicians. Those tips are the bribe du jour of the Washington "establishment" on both the left and right. With such insider relationships, who needs votes?

Both Trump and Bernie appear to be threatening their status quo.

Judge Garland's sponsors: (1) expanded NSA snooping illegally, (2) Colluded with IBM and (3) aided the theft of social networking . . . all in the name of "national security"

It took some digging, but AFI researches uncovered a copy of Judge Garland's Nov. 30, 1995 Senate confirmation hearing late this afternoon.

Garland: 15 jobs in 18 years

Between 1977 and 1995, Merrick B. Garland changed jobs 15 times, or 1.2 years per job. Normally, professional resume readers consider such job hopping an indication that this person is not a good risk. Garland Employement Record (pages 43-44).

Powerful insider: Chief Judge

Oddly, Garland changed jobs 15 times in his first 18 years of employment, then has stayed in the same job at the DC Circuit for the last 19 years. That job must suit him better.

After more digging, researchers believe Garland was being groomed for his current job. Then, once he was in place at the DC Circuit, he has done the bidding of his taskmasters as CHIEF JUDGE of that court. This put him in one of the most powerful jobs in the Judiciary to carry out the agenda of his sponsors. Some experts, according to CBS News, believe his DC Circuit Court of Appeals is the second most powerful behind the Supreme Court. (Source: Scott Pelley, CBS Evening News, Mar. 16, 2016).

On Sep. 6, 1995, Bill Clinton nominated Judge Garland for the DC Circuit Court of Appeals, on the recommendation of his and Hillary's legal adviser, Harvard Law professor James P. Chandler, III. Chandler was pushing through the Economic Espionage Act, the False Statements Accountability Act, and numerous Executive Orders on national security at the time. He was also working closely with the NSA, FBI and other national intelligence bodies on the precurors to the illegal NSA bulk data collection scheme that emerged ready-made following 9-11 (2001).

Confirmation disclosures tell many tales... when available

As part of the nominating process, judge candidates must testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee and submit a financial disclosure and detailed biography. The Senate compiles all this information. S. Hrg. 104-512. (Nov. 30, 1995). Judge Merrick B. Garland Senate Confirmation Hearing. Purdue.

Surprisingly today, librarians at the Government Printing Office in Washington, D.C. were unable to locate Judge Garland's 1995 confirmation records. However, AFI researchers persisted and uncovered a copy in the archives at Purdue University. One would have thought such basic information about one of the most important Supreme Court nominees in living memory would be readily accessible to the public. It was not.

The Senate also published the letters of recommendation submitted on behalf of the judicial candidate by decision influencers. These letters carry a lot of weight with these busy committee members. See Table 1 below.

Jay B. Stephens

Pillsbury Madison LLP

Yes

Yes

Stephens Biographies
The U.S. Senate held a confirmation hearing to appoint Stephens to be Assistant Attorney General on Sep. 20, 2001. S. Hrg. 107-603, just a week after 9-11.

In Stephens' 2001 Senate hearing, he disclosed Merrick B. Garland as a personal reference in his Senate hearing. Stephens Hearing, p. 72. Therefore, this definitively ties Garland to Stephens' Raytheon interests. See below.

Stephens' Senate 2000 Financial Disclosure is hand-written. Researchers only see hand-written financial disclosures among lawyers applying for jobs in the Executive Branch. (The information is not searchable electronically.) Stephens did not disappoint. Stephens' holdings carry the now unmistakable signature of the Washington Cartel (i.e., Vanguard, Fidelity, Janus, Harbor). And yes, Stephens holds Fidelity Contrafund, just like Eric Holder, John Roberts, Evan Wallach and others in the Leader v. Facebook judicial corruption.

In 2005, Stephens also disclosed Margaret G. Gill, Airtouch, Sr. VP for Legal, External Affairs, as a reference. Id., p. 72. In 1995, Ms. Gill also endorsed Judge Garland in his Senate confirmation hearing. This is clearly a tight clique of lawyers.

In 2001, Stephens disclosed a Justice Department relationship with IBM (including undercover operations), which proves his association with Leader Technologies' patent counsel, James P. Chandler, who also advised IBM and its inside counsel, David J. Kappos, who was appointed by Obama as Patent Office Director in 2009. Stephens Hearing, p. 74

Stephens later become senior vice president and general counsel of Raytheon Corp., a prime defense contractor, weapons manufacturer and vendor to the spy state.

Raytheon Tomahawk Cruise Missiles are suspected by highly credible senior aircraft manufacturing officials to have been used on 9-11. These executives have investigated the gapping holes in the official story of 9-11 from both engineering and forensic perspectives. Some of these executives have overseen manufacturing on well known aircraft.

For example, the Pentagon site had no airplane wing debris and the impact area on the building was too small for the alleged American Airlines Boeing 757. None of the crash sites had customary debris fields that one would normally find for commercial jets full of passengers and cargo (e.g., clothes, papers, luggage, children's toys). Also, the crash sites were bereft of titanium jet engines. Titanium in a jet engine does not burn or disintegrate in a crash. The inferno, as spectacular as it is, never gets hot enough to melt titanium.

Jet fuel (kerosene) burns at 1220°F. Titanim melts at 3,034°F. You do the math. The myth debunkers (or astroturfers-propogandists) have steered clear of these facts.

Before the Garland nomination, an aircraft industry expert had said he/she believds that the site evidence makes Raytheon Tomahawk Cruise Missles and secondary explosives the more likely cause of the 9-11 site damage signatures. We had not published this previously, but when Raytheon's chief counsel became associated with the Garland nomination and the illegal NSA surveillance programs, this research may be material, and is certainly worth further investigation.

Eric J. Holder, Jr. was appointed Deputy Attorney General by Bill Clinton in 1997. A post he held until 2001. He is a protégé of James P. Chandler, III, author of the Economic Espionage Act in 1996. Holder carried out Clinton's last minute pardon of Marc Rich. He served as Assistant Attorney General under George Bush. Thus, he was a close associate of Merrick B. Garland, Robert S. Mueller, Dan K. Webb, Robert S. Bennett, George J. Terwillider, III, Joe D. Whitley, Jay B. Stephens, Donald B. Ayer and Evan J. Wallach.

Holder was appointed Attorney General by Barack Obama on Feb. 2, 2009. Holder approved and supervised the NSA's illegal bulk surveillance program on American citizens.

Conclusions

1. NSA Spy State Relationships: It appears that Judge Garland had a secret NSA Spy State agenda and set of relationships coming into his current job, and will certainly carry it into the Supreme Court, should he be confirmed.

2. Dubious Financial Gains: Judge Garland's ability to grow his financial portfolio by over $800,000 per year while a full time judge needs to be investigated for possible insider trading and/or collusion with Wall Street.

3. No More Judges From Harvard! Judge Garland's spy agenda and dubious finances aside, the country needs to diversify its legal perspectives on the Supreme Court to include a majority NOT from Harvard.

4. Raytheon Loyalties Judge Garland's sponsor, Jay B. Stephens, and therefore Raytheon, cruise missle manufacturer, ties him to the military-industrial complex. This taints Garland's objectivity. This association is disturbing and raises all sorts of other questions about Garland's association with the spy state agenda of the intelligence agencies and their private "Big Data" beneficiaries, including Silicon Valley and Wall Street.

For these reasons alone, the Garland nomination should be abjured.

    I watched Merrick Garland as Obama stood with Biden to announce his nomination to SCOTUS. He cried. He was so happy, he cried. Didn't the press go after Boehner for crying? And he was standing with Joe Biden , who in the late 1990's ( before his hair plug procedure ), had blasted the GOP for nominating a SCOTUS nominee during the presidential "political season". Obama said that the GOP was just playing politics this time, but the Dems had good reason to object in the 1990's. Shouldn't the press see this hypocrisy ? HA. Every time I see this crap, I become more convinced that it is time to clean house. All of them. Both sides. But don't be fooled.....the next two or three court appointees will be perhaps the most important in our history. This election will have huge consequences.

    And how about the conservatives using secret meetings to begin clandestine measures to abrogate the will of their party.....i.e., block Trump. These hypocrites did the same thing in 2012 by not showing up to vote for Romney because he was a Mormon, and now they are using Romney to spearhead this ouster campaign. Is Romney that dumb? If he had fought this hard to defeat a crippled Obama, Trump would still be building hotels and firing idiots on TV. The GOP caused Trump. Obama caused Trump. Hillary caused Trump. And Romney caused Trump. Thank goodness this maverick showed up.

    Americans are sick of an illusion of care. Politicians and the press, for the most part, don't care about me or you, or the needy, or the minorities, or our economy, or our schools......if they did, we wouldn't have Trump. If the military vets had been cared for, we wouldn't have Trump. If the economy was working for us, we wouldn't have Trump. If we had actually tried to win from time to time, we wouldn't have Trump.

    But we do, and we need to support his cause, guide his intentions, and pray for him. And in case you are wondering, I have a license to carry a weapon, and a constitutional right to pray. I am clinging to both. The man in office ( B Hussein Obama) , wants to get control of both. Hillary and Sanders do too. Listen to Hillary. She now says that she is the extension of Obama. I hope they are cellmates during the next president's term. And do we need a cry baby on our Supreme Court ? Why are most judges wimps?

    Have a great day, TEX=

  4. In his best-selling memoir, Duty, former CIA Director and Secretary of Defense Robert M. Gates, comments (pages 446-449):

    "...As we began the Afghan surge, 75 percent of all casualties were due to IED's...Once again, I went outside the regular bureaucracy to tackle these issues, and to do so urgently...We still had two wars going, one of them about to get significantly bigger [in Afghanistan]. Three years into the job, I just couldn't figure out why I still needed to be exhorting people on the urgency of taking care of the troops."

    In short, even the Pentagon, with its clear mission of winning wars AND protecting our troops has taken their eyes off the ball. It took a passionate, caring leader like Gates to exert his influence to protect our family members, friends, and fellow citizens from harm's way. These people put their lives on the line for our country and were not being protected adequately. In addition, consider the scandal regarding the poor medical care provided to some of our veterans when they returned home!

    With regard to cyber warfare, Gates writes: In dealing with America's vulnerability to cyber attacks on computers so vital to our critical infrastructure, business, and government, we were in uncharted waters both bureaucratically and legally. There was a deep division within the government--over who should be in charge of our domestic cyber defense: government or business, the Defense Department's National Security Agency, the Department of Homeland Security, or some other entity. There was a split between those whose priority was national security and those whose priority was the protection of privacy and civil liberties. The result was paralysis. Soon after my arrival in office, I asked the department's deputy general counsel for a memo on what kind of cyber attack--by us or on us--would constitute an act of war justifying a response in kind or conventional military retaliation. I WAS STILL WAITING FOR A GOOD ANSWER TO THAT QUESTIONS THREE YEARS LATER. [Editor: Caps added.]

    Our government leaders have all too often taken their eyes off the ball. Clearly, many are focused on feathering their personal nests. Also clearly, many are indeed dedicated public servants.

    We need to do everything we can to make sure the latter group prevails at the ballot box and during government approval processes.

Lets just strap on pistols like the good old days of the Wild West and shoot it out. I guess that's what these legal "professionals" want? Oh wait, they want our guns. Hmmmmmm.

    There's a stunning new twist just a day after we learned then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton used her unsecured Blackberry while traveling in Russia and China.

    A video has emerged of Clinton acknowledging in 2014 that she could not use personal devices in those counties, due to the risk of being hacked.

  8. Well, well. After reading the revelations of this post about Merrick B. Garland and his New World Order cronies, I received this YouTube from a friend:

    Jones, A. (Breaking: New Trump Scandal, Devastating Info Released. Infowars. The Alex Jones Channel.

    https://youtu.be/sDr2NJPv8kE

    Looks to me like the globalists seized upon Leader Technologies' social networking invention and bastardized it to control the global information (telecom, banking, advertising, entertainment, social, payments). It also looks like Apple under Steve Jobs did not play, then once Jobs died, Cook relented somewhat by embedding the "Dual EC DRBG" backdoor spy algorithm. But now it looks like Cook has had second thoughts. Sooooo, now the globalists want to take Apple down too?

    By the way. Leader Technologies is from Ohio. Why isn't Ohio governor John Kasich defending Leader as one of his own small business from these bad boys? He being the tender heart for jobs and all. I guess he wants his citizens to all have low paying service jobs, what was I thinking? Could it be because he is taking money from George Soros and Mark Kvamme (former LinkedIn). He appears to be bought and paid for by the same people identified in this Alex Jones video.

  9. Most transparent administration in history sets record for failure to find requested documents


    posted at 8:31 pm on March 19, 2016 by John Sexton
    In more than one in six cases, or 129,825 times, government searchers said they came up empty-handed last year. Such cases contributed to an alarming measurement: People who asked for records under the law received censored files or nothing in 77 percent of requests, also a record. In the first full year after President Barack Obama’s election, that figure was only 65 percent of cases.

    […]

    The FBI couldn’t find any records in 39 percent of cases, or 5,168 times. The Environmental Protection Agency regional office that oversees New York and New Jersey couldn’t find anything 58 percent of the time. U.S. Customs and Border Protection couldn’t find anything in 34 percent of cases.

    “It’s incredibly unfortunate when someone waits months, or perhaps years, to get a response to their request – only to be told that the agency can’t find anything,” said Adam Marshall, an attorney with the Washington-based Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press.

In the wake of the most significant financial crisis since the Great Depression, the President signed into law on May 20, 2009, the Fraud Enforcement and Recovery Act of 2009, creating the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission.

    View the Final Report Of The National Commission On The Causes Of The Financial And Economic Crisis In The United States

    The Commission was established to examine the causes, domestic and global, of the current financial and economic crisis in the United States. During the course of its investigation, the ten person bipartisan committee reviewed millions of pages of documents, interviewed more than 700 witnesses, and held 19 days of public hearings in New York, Washington, D.C., and communities across the country that were hit hard by the crisis. The final report presents the Commission's findings and conclusions and also contains 126 pages[BLIP] of dissenting views.

  14. Former intelligence contractor and NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden told the BBC's Panorama that the UK intelligence centre GCHQ has the power to hack phones without their owners’ knowledge.

    Despite the cute name, these technologies are very disturbing; each one is built to spy on you in a different way:

    “Dreamy Smurf”: lets the phone be powered on and off

    “Nosey Smurf”:lets spies turn the microphone on and listen in on users, even if the phone itself is turned off

    “Tracker Smurf”:a geo-location tool which allows [GCHQ] to follow you with a greater precision than you would get from the typical triangulation of cellphone towers.

    “Paranoid Smurf”: hides the fact that it has taken control of the phone. The tool will stop people from recognising that the phone has been tampered with if it is taken in for a service, for instance.

    Snowden says: “They want to own your phone instead of you.” It sounds very much like he means we are being purposefully encouraged to buy our own tracking devices. That kinda saved the government some money, didn’t it?

    OK folks.......this country is in really deep doo doo. Our numbskull president is in Cuba doing such things as standing in front of a Che Guevara portrait speaking about how America did bad things to Cuba over the last 50 years. Che , if you recall, was a Marxist revolutionary who perfected gorilla warfare and , while doing so, massacred thousands of Cubans that wanted freedom and liberty. Ironically, Obama spoke at Georgetown University a while back and had a Christian cross covered that was wall mounted behind the podium. I guess he thought Christ was a pretty bad guy. That draws a clear picture of Obama's intentions. Is he a radical Marxist at heart ? Is he truly anti Christian ?

    So Obama has heard of the slaughter today in Brussels by jihadist Muslims, yet he has chosen to attend a baseball game in Havana rather than fly home to figure out a way to support our friends in Europe. This pattern is so obvious .......he allows Iran to unravel sanctions, thumb their nose at us, and continue towards a nuclear warhead. He blames the Republicans. Is he an Iranian at heart ? He opens our borders to anyone and suggests that our concern is actually racism towards Hispanics and Islam. Brussels has open borders, France has open borders, Germany has open borders, and all are now in jeopardy of losing control of their nations. He chastises outspoken Europeans for being concerned. Is he a jihadist at heart ?

    1. Mr. Chandler knows what he has done and can answer his own question. AFI researchers have provided more than ample evidence and reasoned opinion to prove the duplicity. AFI readers can make up their own minds. Various experienced librarians from around the planet have concluded that JAMES P. CHANDLER, III, DAVID J.

Chandler was big man on campus in the Clinton Administration then.

  18. Ummm, Michael, since you are a proud advocate of Harvard Law School (it is presumably the best), where, sir, does it say, in the U.S. Constitution, Separation of Church and State? I’ll answer that for you; it doesn’t. The time Separation is used is in reference to Separation of Powers (I’m sure Harvard Law still teaches that).
    I also understand that I'm a graduate of a petty, little technical college, but I do understand how a man's, or woman's, religiosity can dictate the direction of whimsical votes.
    I have nothing against a person's beliefs (save the barbaric radicalizing of an entire culture), but I am one of the majority opinion, here, that truly feel our Bill of Rights are directly associated with the Ten Commandments.
    As for the 'conspiracy' argument; I suggest you go WAAAAAY back in this blog and educate yourself what the original complaint was about. It was proven fact that Facebook was found guilty on 11 counts of Literal Patent Infringement. You could ask one of your Harvard pals in black robes what that means, but in laymen’s terms, it was STOLEN.
    This blog does nothing but show the people behind the people (the power-brokers).
    I’m, always reminded, when following politics, that you always follow the money. Well, I suggest you look at the money trail (who is financing whom), and what vested interest they may have; it’s very shocking!
    It doesn’t take a rocket scientist (apologies to any rocket scientist who may be reading this) to understand that the man behind the man, behind the man, has a huge vested interest in keeping this wonderful ‘Social Media’ platform out of the hands of its rightful owners, Leader Technologies.

    This article first posted in February of 2014
    ----------
    What’s most successful when it appears to be something it’s not? Astroturf. As in fake grassroots.
    ----------
    The many ways that corporations, special interests and political interests of all stripes exploit media and the Internet to perpetuate astroturf is ever-expanding. Surreptitious astroturf methods are now more important to these interests than traditional lobbying of Congress. There’s an entire PR industry built around it in Washington.

    Below are the top ten astroturfers as viewed by respondents in an informal, non-scientific survey.*

    TOP 10 ASTROTURFERS

    1. Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America and Everytown

    2. Media Matters for America

    3. University of California Hastings Professor Dorit Rubenstein Reiss and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s Dr. Paul Offit

    4. “Science” Blogs such as: Skeptic.com, Skepchick.org, Scienceblogs.com (Respectful Insolence), Popsci.com and SkepticalRaptors.com

    5. Mother Jones

    6. Salon.com and Vox.com

    7. White House press briefings and press secretary Josh Earnest

    8. Daily Kos and The Huffington Post

    9. CNN, NBC, New York Times, Politico and Talking Points Memo (TPM)

    10. MSNBC, Slate.com, Los Angeles Times and Michael Hiltzik of the Los Angeles Times, MSNBC and Jon Stewart.
    Astroturfers often disguise themselves and publish blogs, write letters to the editor, produce ads, start non-profits, establish Facebook and Twitter accounts, edit Wikipedia pages or simply post comments online to try to fool you into thinking an independent or grassroots movement is speaking. They use their partners in blogs and in the news media in an attempt to lend an air of legitimacy or impartiality to their efforts.

    Astroturf’s biggest accomplishment is when it crosses over into semi-trusted news organizations that unquestioningly cite or copy it.

      The whole point of astroturf is to try to convince you there’s widespread support for or against an agenda when there’s not.
      The language of astroturfers and propagandists includes trademark inflammatory terms such as: anti, nutty, quack, crank, pseudo-science, debunking, conspiracy theory, deniers and junk science. Sometimes astroturfers claim to “debunk myths” that aren’t myths at all. They declare debates over that aren’t over. They claim that “everybody agrees” when everyone doesn’t agree. They aim to make you think you’re an outlier when you’re not.

      Astroturfers and propagandists tend to attack and controversialize the news organizations, personalities and people surrounding an issue rather than sticking to the facts. They try to censor and silence topics and speakers rather than engage them. And most of all, they reserve all their expressed skepticism for those who expose wrongdoing rather than the wrongdoers. In other words, instead of questioning authority, they question those who question authority.

      Much of this sounds familiar to many Americans. The results of an informal, non-scientific poll identify groups related to Gun Safety Action Fund, Inc. as top Astroturf efforts. These groups include Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, Everytown, Everytown for Gun Safety, Gun Sense, It’s Time for Gun Sense in America, Gun Sense Voter, I’m a Gun Sense Voter, Moms Take the Hill and Stroller Jam.

      The groups present themselves as grassroots organizations of “mayors, moms survivors and everyday Americans.” They are spearheaded by former New York Mayor and multi-billionaire Michael Bloomberg, and former PR professional and mother Shannon Watts. Last year, they announced a $50 million political campaign to try to counter the efforts of the formidable gun rights lobby.

      Second to the gun control groups in being identified as a top disseminator of astroturf and propaganda is the controversial, left wing blog Media Matters for America with the stated goal of waging “guerrilla warfare and sabotage” against FOX News. More broadly, Media Matters acts on behalf of the interests of Hillary Clinton and the Obama Administration, sometimes in direct consultation with Obama officials. It was founded by the troubled Democratic political operative David Brock, who formed the super-Political Action Committee (PAC) American Bridge that raised funds to help elect liberal Democrats to Congress. Brock also served on the board of the super-PAC Priorities USA, which announced support for Hillary Clinton’s potential run for president.

      A close third is an array of blogs that use words such as “science” and “skeptic” in their titles or propaganda in an attempt to portray an image of neutrality and logic when they are often fighting established science and serving pro-pharmaceutical industry agendas. These include: ScienceBlogs.com (using the pseudonym “Orac”); vaccine inventor Dr. Paul Offit of The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia who earned an undisclosed fortune from Merck pharmaceuticals; and his apparent replacement in trolling blogs Dorit Rubenstein Reiss. She is a law professor at the University of California Hastings and a frequent contributor to SkepticalRaptors.com.

      A final category frequently mentioned is quasi-news organizations that sometimes throw readers off the astroturf trail because they publish some legitimate news-type or pop-culture stories, but mix in propaganda or astroturf. These sources tend to be highly-cited by the unquestioning traditional news media either to advance an agenda, or in the media’s attempt to be hip and edgy or “get clicks.”

      Sometimes, astroturf is in the eye of the beholder. But no matter how you see it, there is no short supply.

      Honorable Mention Astorturfers as identified by respondents:

      ABC, CBS, FOX, Townhall.com, Daily Caller, Think Progress, U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice, Service Employees International Union (SEIU), Global Warming, The National Rifle Association, MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, “Republicans making us believe Jeb Bush is strongly favored as the next Republican candidate for president,” State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf, Benghazi, Obama describing ISIS as “JV team,” George Soros, the Koch Brothers, Washington Post blogger Erik Wemple, Rush Limbaugh, “Too Big to Fail” Banks, US Treasury, Federal Housing Finance Agency, Al Sharpton, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, hashtags, Saturday Night Live Weekend Update, the Kennedy Family, Rolling Stone, Ezekiel Emmanuel, Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow producer Steve Benen, National Public Radio (NPR), Bill Moyers, Occupy Wall Street, Moveon.org, Wikipedia, Center for American Progress, Snopes, Every Child by Two, American Academy of Pediatrics, Voices for Vaccines, BuzzFeed, Wired, The New Republic and Forbes.com.

    A conservative legal watchdog has released documents that it says show staffers to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton interacting with the Clinton Foundation.

    Judicial Watch said the internal State Department documents show Clinton’s aides helping orchestrate her public thanks to organizations that had made a commitment to the Clinton Global Initiative. Those "commitments to action" involve an organization developing a plan to address a global problem and then carrying it out without the Foundation's involvement.

    Judicial Watch on Tuesday said it had obtained 276 pages of documents from State as a result of a federal court order following a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit.

    http://thehill.com/policy/national-security/274230-lost-emails-discovered-from-clintons-server

    Conservative legal watchdogs have discovered new emails from Hillary Clinton’s private email server dating back to the first days of her tenure as secretary of State.

    The previously undisclosed February 2009 emails between Clinton from her then-chief of staff, Cheryl Mills, raise new questions about the scope of emails from Clinton’s early days in office that were not handed over to the State Department for recordkeeping and may have been lost entirely.

    Clinton’s presidential campaign has previously claimed that the former top diplomat did not use her personal "clintonemail.com" account before March 2009, weeks after she was sworn in as secretary of State.

    But on Thursday, the watchdog group Judicial Watch released one message from Feb. 13, 2009, in which Mills communicated with Clinton on the account to discuss the National Security Agency’s (NSA) efforts to produce a secure BlackBerry device for her to use as secretary of State.
