EXCLUSIVE: FBI Admits Federal Informants Linked to Deadly Charlottesville Riots; Unlikely To Face Charges

https://truepundit.com/exclusive-fbi-admits-federal-informants-linked-to...

FBI insiders said it is unlikely leaders of the radical groups that clashed in demonstrations turned deadly in Charlottesville, VA will face prosecution.

Why?

FBI said they have already identified several federal informants who participated in the mob-like riots over the weekend in Virginia. The FBI is also now working those sources to piece together the events from Charlottesville, sources said.

But FBI agents have deemed the newly-minted investigation dicey, having to navigate separate agreements with embedded intelligence assets while trying to pinpoint responsibility for the violence.

The FBI sources said it is unlikely an asset would be charged for stoking violence in Virginia if for instance that asset had or was providing valuable information on another domestic terrorism case.

“We wouldn’t do a solid informant for this,” one FBI insider said.

The word “do” here pertains to indict.

Federal law enforcement sources said that attitude would be different if the two Virginia State Police troopers who died were killed as part of the demonstrations. The troopers perished after they lost control of a State Police helicopter which was leaving Charlottesville, according to NTSB records.

Done. Thanks for the heads-up. But my (rhetorical) question is: why does it take a PETITION to get Federal enforcement agencis to deal with the bloody fucking obvious? Of course these idiots are terrorists. That's their own stated purpose.

The popular movement that brought trump to power is currently confused,fragmented,with no clear goal,betrayed,and no leader.They are labeled right wing extremists,racists,white supremacists.They are isolated and hearded toward slaughter.

Did I say no leader?

yes,the leader they thought they had disavowed the main people that were responsible for his victory.I'm not saying that those men were without fault.But he betrayed them. He chose the zionist generals and the zionist bankers.He's isolated now or "he came out of the closet" for everybody to see where his loyalties lie.

Guess who's coming to dinner at the White House(isn't white racist?).

This is from a Thierry Meyssan article:

 

An Israeli delegation will be received at the White House this week. The agenda: Syria.

The three members of the Israeli delegation are:
• Yossi Cohen (photo), Head of Mossad (Foreign Intelligence);
• General Herzl Halevi, Head of Aman (Military Intelligence); and
• Colonel Zohar Palti, Head of Military and Political Affairs at the Ministry of Defense.

This delegation will meet with the following US representatives:
• General H.R. McMaster, National Security Advisor;
• Dina Powell, Vice National Security Advisor; and
• Jason Greenblatt, The President’s representative for international negotiations.

Israël, which has already secured a prohibition on Iranian troops or troops from the Hezbollah being present in Southern Syria, intends to use this visit as an opportunity to present compelling grounds for closing down the Silk Route. Israel’s justification? Teheran could use this route to supply arms to the Hezbollah.

The three members of the Israeli delegation and Trump’s representative (Jason Greenblatt), all four of them are Jewish Orthodox. As for Dina Powell, she was involved in the assassination of Rafiq Hariri and planning the “Arab Springs”.

 

The war in Syria is lost for them. They came to pressure the American Goy to increase mayhem for them in Syria.

I expect horrible FF pinned on Mr. Assad and to justify an intervention there. Expect something big and horrendous soon.

I'm terrified of what they might do.

Interesting factoid for the indoctrinated snowflakes of Antifa, General Lee freed the inherited slaves under his control in 1862. But you wouldn't know that because Lincolns 1863 Emancipation Proclamation is supposed to mean something other than >>>what it actually says<<< in the text.

Of course, the consensus of all "scientists" of the 1500's thought the Errrf was flat and in the 70's they said with all the learned snobbery that can only come via goal seeked data, that we were in fact heading into an Ice Age and that NYC would be under a mile thick sheet of glacial ice.

A Brief Guide to American History Teachers

Q: Name several American Holocausts, the nations involved, and the places where these were accomplished.

A: Missouri, Illinois, Miami, New England, Virginia, and most place names in the United States. For more advanced students, the answer can extend to North and South America.

Q:What kind of un-American creep would give that answer?

A: A native American. Of course a truly patriotic American might have known better than to ask the question. In such cases silence is the only way to avoid acknowledging guilt. There have been no American Holocausts, and we should all realize this truth. It is self evident, since we believe all men are created equal, that we would not do what those nasty Europeans did. They are racist bigots, we are the people who got rid of the old prejudices and refuse to do terrible things, unless the Lord commanded it. We have pure hearts, pure motives, and pure history.

Q:What advantages are there to true Americans if they deny that there has been any American Holocaust?

A: It allows them to be outraged at Other Monsters. Also, it lets them focus on terrible things done overseas - in Rwanda, Bosnia, the Caucasus, Iraq - so that noone will notice what is going on here. Since there was only one Holocaust, we can be wonderfully virtuous in supporting its victims, and we know that we do not have to worry about being on the right side. So this justifies our putting up a monument in Washington, D.C. to that one Holocaust, and not putting anything there which might hint that there was anything like it in this country.

Q: Is this matter relevant to the origins, makeup, and functions of the United Nations?

A: Yes. I do not dare, however, answer in more detail. No true American can afford to consider the question of whether Native American nations are truly sovereign. De facto, De Deo(sic) must be their mighty fortress. When FDR, about 1942, discussed the postwar realignments with Churchill, he reminded Churchill of what the English were doing in their colonies. Churchill then reminded FDR of two cases: blacks in Mississippi, and Navajos in Arizona. FDR shut up. It is the only safe answer.

Q: You conclude that American History should not be taught?

A: Of course not: it never has been, and this is no time to begin doing so."

From: "Indians" and Animals: A Comparative Essay

"...Indians received not only similar descriptions to those given predatory animals, but much the same treatment as well. George Washington, revered as the father of the country, wrote that Indians "...were wolves and beasts who deserved nothing from the whites but 'total ruin'" (Stannard, p. 241). Thomas Jefferson, acclaimed proponent of freedom and democracy, argued that the United States government was obliged "...to pursue [Indians] to extermination, or drive them to new seats beyond our reach" (quoted in Takaki, 1979, p. 103). Andrew Jackson, founder of the modern Democratic Party and greatest(sic) Indian(sic) killer of all American Presidents, urged United States troops "...to root out from their 'dens' and kill Indian women and their 'whelps'" (Stannard, p. 240). Jackson was so effective at rooting women and "whelps" from their "dens," he adopted the habit of cutting off his victims' noses as trophies to commemorate his exploits. He earned the name "Sharp Knife" from Creek Indians for his penchant for skinning victims and using the cured and braided tissue as reins for his ponies (Takaki, 1994)."

lulz, you won't find me defending the actions of Grant, Custer, Sheridan etal regarding the natives (or their own troops) so you disappoint me on that score but I did note you are silent on Lee, no attempt at refutation means I'm correct.

As far as "climate change" you provide no basis as to cause, however, receding glaciers have a way exposing the past...like tools and mines from Roman times...that would be BEFORE cars, trains & automobiles. It would seem Gore, Mann & Ehrlich were a few centuries too late.

And I stand by my statement on Antifa, they are idiot communists, its core bought & paid for by people like Soro's but its still a relatively free country, just don't play in traffic and you should be fine hiding behind police barricades only emerging to sucker punch old ladies.

"General Lee freed the inherited slaves under his control"

Eventually, but not before your illustrious hero had at least one whipped for trying to escape during the twelve years he spent reneging on that promise to free them, and opining how slavery was "necessary for their instruction as a race", and maintaining they were better off as slaves in america than free men in africa....

Here's another 'factoid' you glaringly omitted: Mr.Lee objected to the raising of Confederate Monuments.


It's unclear, does your condemnation of "etal" (sic) extend to Ol'Sharp Knife?

 

"As far as "climate change" you provide no basis as to cause" You're right, I did not; just a pertinent fact that you take great pains to avoid. For that matter when it comes to providing 'basis as to cause' for climate change: neither did you, other than to deride ALGore's (have you even seen either film?), but I bet your explanation is most entertaining!

Conspiracy theory or not, I think this should be looked into, don't you?

I mean, maybe this mountain of circumstantial evidence against known bad guys is just a coincidence OR George Webb has just uncovered the BIGGEST spy ring in the history of the planet AND everyone on Capital Hill should be setting in a federal lockup awaiting trial.

I think that's our problem here. ........ Not enough jail cells and not enough 'good' cops. .... Or apparently people who 'Give A Flying Shit'.

Don't even get me started on the FBI. ... Crooks. .. Cover-up crooks.

George, you may just have to write a book and forget about getting ANY of this looked into.

You can call it "Mr. Webb Goes To Washington A Gets Eaten For Breakfast".

Dune, there is no way the Awans were not originally vetted and approved by the CIA and NSA before they started working. They were most likely working for them as DWS was on one of the Intel oversight committees. Even our lowly Toronto Police have been caught spying on members of their oversight committee.

To believe otherwise would require you to believe that the NSA and CIA are both omnipotent and incompetent.

The only story worth persuing is what did the Awans do to put themselves outside of the deep state circle of trust. We know it wasn't bank fraud, since that is bread and butter for deep state. 

So it could be as simple as this, The Awans were supposed to (on behalf of CIA / NSA) make sure all DWS comunications systems were totally secure. Someone obviously screwed up on the DNC server. Now they are being punished/exiled for that screw up. Your "connected" man George may be just blowing smoke and holdiing mirrors with his bigger intel leak theories.

croecko's picture

WB7 - could you work up a graphic based upon the premise of this article - ie two patsies (Trump and Kim) taking the rap for the arson charge?

Sticking the arson charge on a couple of patsies

 

Imagine a situation where the owner of a long-established building supply company sees his profits turning into losses with no way to turn things around. The owner has two options. The honest option is to acknowledge the situation and shut down and sell his inventory of goods, his buildings and his equipment. With some luck the sale will earn enough to fund a modest retirement.

 

The dishonest option is to continue to operate on the good name of the business in order to acquire lumber and hardware from suppliers on credit, and then sell the goods privately and deposit the proceeds in an offshore bank account. Finally, when his suppliers lose patience and threaten legal action the owner will arrange for the business to suffer a fire.

 

The fire serves two purposes. First, it directs attention away from the owner’s poor management as the cause of the firm’s difficulties. Clearly the fire destroyed the business, not the owner. Second, it obscures the owner’s fraudulent sale of inventory in the months leading up to the fire and so protects his ill-gotten wealth.  The ashes in the lumber shed could just as easily be from the firm’s declared or actual inventory. With a full fire insurance payout based upon his declared inventory of lumber (and equipment and buildings) the owner will be able to settle with his suppliers and, with the remainder of the insurance settlement and the money squirreled away in his offshore account, enjoy a very comfortable retirement.

 

Applying the analogy to current events, in the aftermath of the 2008 global financial crisis it wasn’t immediately clear whether the situation was a temporary liquidity (or cash-flow) crisis or a deeper solvency (or bankruptcy) crisis. Assuming the former, governments around the world opened up the monetary taps to provide liquidity to the banking system. In the U.S., the Federal Reserve System embarked on two rounds of quantitative easing between 2009 and 2011 which tripled the U.S. money supply.

 

However, by late 2011 it had become clear that the global financial system faced a solvency crisis that money printing alone could not resolve.

 

Honest leaders would have declared a bank holiday and looked at the banks’ accounts in order to determine their state of health. Almost certainly, the banks would have been in much worse shape than the fictional building supply company described above. Many banks would have been found unable to pay their debts, and as one person’s debts are another person’s assets, many previously valuable stocks, bonds and other financial instruments would have been rendered worthless.

 

Sadly, our leaders chose the dishonest course, as explained in an article written last month by Deutsche Bank analyst Aleksandar Kocic. According to Kocic, the financial markets broke in 2012. As evidence, he looks at two measures of risk, the volatility index (VIX) which measures the market’s anticipated 30 day volatility taken from the trading of options, and the economic policy uncertainty index  (EPU) taken from the frequency certain words (such as ‘deficit’ or ‘uncertainty’) appear in ten top American newspapers.

 

Until 2012, the two measures moved in tandem with one another. Financial market volatility reflected real world uncertainty. However, starting in 2012, the two measures diverged. While the EPU index has moved higher, the VIX is at record lows.

 

The VIX is not the only warning signal to convey a false sense of stability and calm. Last month the chairman and CEO of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, Terry Duffy, said in a Fox Business interview that given the level of geopolitical and financial risk in the world, gold (the traditional safe-haven asset in times of trouble) should be trading for more than $5000 per ounce, 4 times its current level.

 

The most plausible explanation for these divergences is that the VIX and the gold price have been manipulated downward by the world’s banks and central banks in order to maintain confidence in the financial system. While in our story the building supply store owner is only able to buy goods on credit so long as his suppliers trust his good reputation, so banks and central banks are only able to issue their loans and currencies so long as there is confidence in the current financial and monetary system.

 

However, market manipulation can only get you so far. While certain measures of risk have been massaged to convey confidence, people like Kocic realize that the risks remain even if our ability to see them has been compromised. 

 

As this realization spreads and threats to the current system become acute, it becomes time to arrange a fire. It is easy to see today’s geopolitical flashpoints as attempts to ignite a war which would allow the governments, central banks and banks which have systematically burdened our global economy with unpayable debts to both escape responsibility and protect their own wealth and power.

 

Looking at North Korea in particular, how is their acquisition of nuclear weapons even an issue? Two facts are worth keeping in mind: North Korea is a desperately poor country with only a limited ability to construct and maintain nuclear weapons, and the overriding concern of the North Korean government is survival.

 

What would happen if the North did launch a missile at South Korea, Japan or Guam? The response from the United States and its allies would be immediate and would result in both hundreds of thousands of deaths and the end of Communist Party rule. Fully aware of this, the North Koreans will not launch missiles against their neighbours unless they feel that their very existence is at stake and they have nothing to lose.

 

North Korean rhetoric, meanwhile, is absolutely not credible. Threats to turn the U.S. into a “sea of fire” are made to burnish the government’s image in the minds of the North Korean people. Without an external enemy to galvanize support for the Communist regime (and blame for the North's poverty and backwardness), the Kim dynasty would have ended a generation ago. It is worth remembering that Saddam Hussein’s claims of possessing weapons of mass destruction (which did not in fact exist) in the early 2000s were similarly intended to reinforce Saddam's image as a strongman in the minds of the Iraqi people.

 

 

Considering that the dollar-based global financial system has been obviously bankrupt for almost ten years (and began its slide towards insolvency as far back as the early 1960s) it is quite an achievement for those in charge to have kept it going for this long. However, with over 9 trillion dollars of government bonds now earning negative interest rates, our debt-based monetary system is clearly almost at an end. What better way to end it than with a spectacular fire that can be pinned on a couple of made-to-order patsies like Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un.
