Former Governor Railroaded by Crooked Judge and Karl Rove
We will keep the story short. It involves 4 political assassinations, illegal arrests, probable complicity in the World Trade Center attacks, crooked judges, war crimes and a current President too busy running for office to dispense justice as needed.
Thus, I will put some facts in the public domain that should require a response. We will see, as reason and justice are rare commodities in today’s world.
Former Governor Don Siegelman, a practicing Jew, was sentenced to 78 months in prison for what Judge Mark Fuller called “bribery.” In fact, Siegeman had been targeted by a vote suppression campaign that was run by Bush presidential hit man, Karl Rove.
This was a Klan trial, though the ADL and SPLC stayed silent. Siegleman is, you see, an American patriot.
Ah, but Siegleman is just the tip of a very large iceberg that we can, at least for the time being, take a look at with the cooperation of a wealth of highly classified information that we believe was used to endanger the United States.
In 2008, Mike Connell, accused of rigging voting machines for Karl Rove in two presidential elections died in a plane crash before he could testify before a grand jury.
He had asked for US Marshals protection but was refused by Attorney General John Ashcroft, who was, curiously enough, also among those accused.
Siegelman’s arrest was in 2006, a total “setup” from day one.
The judge, Mark Fuller, was a 2002 Bush appointee, slid through congress after 9/11. Among his problems relating to the case was the fact he as half owner in an aircraft firm that worked only on federal contracts, making him, under any normal situation, required to recuse himself.
Since that time, Bob Martin of the Montgomery Independent, the local paper in Fuller’s district found the following about Fuller:
“The past judicial record of U.S. District Judge Mark E. Fuller of Montgomery has demonstrated his failure on many occasions to step aside from cases thought by lawyers to be compromised by his personal, financial or political interests.
…The long term abuse of trust by Fuller, described to me from sources inside the U.S. Courthouse in Montgomery and others continues today and has lasted at least 4 years.
It involves a former female courtroom deputy in her late 30s with children ages 9 and 14. Her husband obtained a divorce several months ago.
Fuller and his wife separated last August. They have two grown children and one teenager.
During most of the time this “not-so-secret” affair was going on, Fuller was the presiding judge of the U.S. District Court based in Montgomery.
In her complaint Lisa Fuller asks for the following admissions by her husband. They include these topics: extramarital affairs, parenting, driving under the influence of alcohol, withholding documents, payment of expenses for persons with whom he was having sex, spousal abuse, receipt of psychological care or counseling and addiction to prescription drugs.
To my knowledge the answers to those questions had not been filed at the time this column was written.
To help clarify some of the issues with regard to filing against Fuller, I posed some questions to Alabama native, lawyer and Harper’s columnist Scott Horton.
Bob Martin then gets legal advice and Scott Horton of Harper’s, a well known lawyer carefully outlines the criminal case against Fuller. In case you are unfamiliar with Horton, here is his bio:
“A New York attorney known for his work in emerging markets and international law, especially human rights law and the law of armed conflict, Horton lectures at Columbia Law School. A life-long human rights advocate, Horton served as counsel to Andrei Sakharov and Elena Bonner, among other activists in the former Soviet Union.
He is a co-founder of the American University in Central Asia, and has been involved in some of the most significant foreign investment projects in the Central Eurasian region.
Horton recently led a number of studies of abuse issues associated with the conduct of the war on terror for the New York City Bar Association, where he has chaired several committees, including, most recently, the Committee on International Law.
He is also a member of the board of the National Institute of Military Justice, the Andrei Sakharov Foundation, the EurasiaGroup and the American Branch of the International Law Association.”
Thus, when Bob Martin took a look at wrongdoing by Fuller, he got an authoritative view by one of the nations’ top lawyers and a probable nominee for US Supreme Court.
Here are the points Horton made:
1. “When a judge uses his position to extract sexual favors from a court officer under his authority, such conduct could easily be viewed as predatory and possibly even criminal but it doesn’t necessarily follow that because a sexual liaison has arisen that the person in a senior position used his office to advantage.
The facts would have to be studied more carefully. But even if the relationship were purely innocent, one would have to be worried about the unwholesome appearance of a federal judge engaging in a sexual tryst with his court officer.
2. The facts as described to me raise other serious questions. Fuller, as chief judge, would have been the supervisor and evaluator of the court officer and such a role would have not been ethical with respect to a person with whom he as having an affair. Expense questions would have to be evaluated.
3. The current allegations of abuse of office and subpoenas for prescription drugs at numerous pharmacies could possibly bring into question every judgment he has issued and every trial over which he has presided…
4. Another issue would be whether others close to the court knew of his indiscretions and used them to extort favorable court decisions.
There are several prior cases, including one still under investigation involving a federal judge in Florida, in which a judge had a secret liaison with a court officer and other parties, which was apparently used to extort favorable rulings.
In the Fuller matter it would be hard to see how the U.S. attorney’s office would not know about the affair. (Except the were also working for Karl Rove as was Fuller)
If the U.S. Attorney knew and did nothing, holding this as a sort of a sword over the judge’s head, such would undermine the legitimacy of all the criminal matters and some civil matters involving government interests that came before Fuller.
5. Aside from this we have to take into account the unprecedented circumstance of Fuller’s ownership in Doss Aviation, a major source of his income, perhaps more so than his judicial salary.
Doss Aviation appears to benefit from a steady stream of Department of Defense and other federal contracts some awarded on no-bid contracts under highly suspicious circumstances. (Which could be seen as payment for bribing Fuller using Bush “holdovers” in Defense to pour contracts into a questionable company.)
“These ethics issues surrounding a single judge, Mark Everett Fuller, are to my knowledge, without any equal on the federal bench,” Horton concluded.
In fact, we have not been able to find a less qualified judge, one facing more accusation that require imprisonment and more questions against his character than Fuller and those who know the history of the American judiciary know how serious this can be.
MYERS AND SON IN LAW
Part of this same effort by Rove involved former US Attorney and son in law of General Myers, the man who sat next to Rumsfeld at the 9/11 Commission hears and swore that Iran had nuclear weapons and that there was proof Al Qaeda was operating from Iraq.
See the addendum for a partial transcript of the Rumsfeld/Myers testimony on 9/11.
Using the assumption of “guilt by association,” and finding, as outlined below that General Myers, then Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff perjured himself before the 9/11 Commission.
A conspiracy to undermine American justice and constitutional authority existed and the acts of Woods, Myers, Fuller, Rove, Cheney, Bush, Ashcroft and other, all of whom stand indicted for “Crimes against Humanity” in more than a few jurisdictions, was in motion and still is.
Fuller is still a part of it.
A key issue for Attorney General John Ashcroft was the state of Missouri. He was elected senator in 1984 and in 2000 ran against Mel Carnahan, then governor.
Now, this may seem like another coincidence. You see, Democratic Senator Paul Wellstone and his family, in 2002, died in a mysterious plane crash thought to have been staged, like the crash that killed Michael Connell and, heaven forbid, a plane crash killed Mel Carnahan as well, another Democrat running for Senate against a Bush crony.
Even though dead, Carnahan won the election. Bush appointed a former Senator thrown out of office by a dead man to the job of Attorney General.
Soon after that, we got 9/11, the testimony below and none of the murders were investigated. Then it began, the “railroadings” of Bush opponents, imaginary terrorists and anyone who spoke up on Iraq.
A key prosecution was against the IARA in Missouri. The group, the Islamic American Relief Agency, worked closely with former Reagan UN Ambassador Mark Siljander.
Don’t ask me how I know this but just friggin’ guess:
The IARA was a CIA front. Not only that, Siljander was a CIA asset, same as Susan Lindauer. A few years before, Bush Sr. had a CIA Chief of Station, Leo Wanta jailed also.
Similarly, Cheney went after CIAagent Valarie Plame, destroying American’s capacity of tracking North Korean nuclear weapons, just before one was exploded, with a “signature” proving it to be of Israeli manufacture.
In fact, dozens of CIA agents and assets were burned, turned over to enemies, tortured and killed, not so many as the 1,100 that Pollard murdered, but enough to gut the capability of the CIA and make them look to Blackwater for “private” intelligence assets, read “stooges.”
In America, you can’t arrest CIA agents doing their job. Reagan signed this as an executive order in 1982.
Every federal judge and member of congress knows this but, when political necessity requires America’s defense or intelligence capability to be sacrificed, Americans will die or go to jail. The real numbers are high, the incidents, many dozens, all highly classified, would drive any real American to violence.
Talking about them is illegal. Why do you think everything is now “classified?”
Here are some fun and very provable facts. The IARA rented an office in Pakistan in a building that also contained an orphanage. The partial owner of that building was Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, a listed terrorist.
At the time, however, Hekmatyar was actually working for the CIA and still is.
He is our primary bridge between the US and the Taliban and helps manage the Haqqani Networks which work closely with Indian and Israeli intelligence agencies trying to destabilize Pakistan.
It gets better. The IARA folks were arrested and offered a deal to testify against Siljander.
Bush was angry at Siljander for reporting directly to him that Ahmed Chalabi was lying about WMD’s in Iraq.
Siljander, along with former Secretary of State James Baker III, business partner of Bush Sr. in the Carlyle Group, went to Bush Jr. to stop the Iraq invasion.
Siljander got arrested and his legal team included Baker, former Attorney General Ed Meese and, of all things, me. Were I allowed, I could outline a dozen or so CIA operations Siljander assisted on in North Africa and the Middle East. Some were at very great personal risk.
It gets better still. While the trial is going on, General Stanley McChrystal moves known terrorist, the person who the indictments are based on, onto Bagram Air Force Base to work has his advisor.
Hekmatyar stayed on when General Petraeus took over, that’s the Petraeus who is now Director of the Central Intelligence Agency.
Siljander is in federal prison for 3rd hand financial dealings with a person, who, at the time, was a CIA agent and who was a primary advisor for McChrystal and Petraeus.Former Congressman – Mark Siljander
Hekmatyar is still working for the CIA. Siljander is in prison, Siegleman is heading to prison, Connell is dead, Wellstone is dead, Carnahan is dead, all murdered, Connell actually named Rove as ordering his assassination.
Fuller is still a judge though, according to testimony reflected above, could easily replace Siljander and Siegleman “doing time.” So could so many others.
Susan Lindauer, a CIA asset, was locked up for a year for failing to take part in crimes ordered by the Bush administration.
Sibel Edmonds was silenced for 6 years for discovering spy organizations working openly under Ashcroft supervision.
Former National Security Advisor Gwyneth Todd escaped extradition for preventing an American false flag attack in Qatar, staged at Rumsfeld’s orders, that was intended to kill dozens of Americans and blame Iran.
All of this is in testimony, written in books, available to any court in the world, and Siegleman is heading to prison. I expect President Obama to stop this.
You don’t think I have more?
Addendum: 9/11 Commission Testimony of Donald Rumsfeld and Richard Myers, in Analysis for Possible Perjury
Ben Veneste: “Well, it is correct that the United States intelligence community had a great deal of intelligence suggesting that the terrorists, back since 1994, had plans, discussed plans, to use airplanes as weapons, loaded with fuel, loaded with bombs, loaded with explosives.
There were plans in ’97 using a UAV. In ’98, an Al Qaida- connected group talked about flying a commercial plane into the World Trade Center. In ’98, there was a plot broken up by Turkish intelligence involving the use of a plane as a weapon.
In ’99, there was a plot involving exploding a plane at an airport. Also in ’99, there was a plot regarding an explosive-laden hang-glider. In ’99 or in 2000, there was a plot regarding hijacking a 747. And in August of 2001, there was information received by our intelligence community regarding flying a plane into the Nairobi embassy, our Nairobi embassy.
And so I suggest that when you have this threat spike in the summer of 2001 that said something huge was going to happen and the FAA circulates, as you mentioned, a warning which does nothing to alert people on the ground to the potential threat of jihadist hijacking, which only, it seems to me, despite the fact that they read into the congressional record the potential for a hijacking threat in the United States, in the summer of 2001, it never gets to any actionable level.
Nobody at the airports is alerted to any particular threat. Nobody flying the planes takes action of a defensive posture.
I understand that going after Al Qaida overseas is one thing. But protecting the United States is another thing. And it seems to me that a statement that we could not conceive of such a thing happening really does not reflect the state of our intelligence community as of 2001, sir.”
RUMSFELD: “A couple of comments. I quite agree with you, there were a number of reports about potential hijacking. I even remember comments about UAVs. I even have seen things about private aircraft hitting something. But I do not recall ever seeing anything in the period since I came back to government about the idea of taking a commercial airliner and using it as a missile. I just don’t recall seeing it. And maybe you do, Dick?”
(Editors note: Can anyone see where a charge of perjury might apply here?)
MYERS:”No, I do not.”
(Editors note: And here?)
BEN-VENISTE: “Well, the fact is that our staff has — and the joint inquiry before us, I must say — has come up with eight or 10 examples which are well-known in the intelligence community. My goodness, there was an example of an individual who flew a small plane and landed right next to the White House.”
RUMSFELD:” I remember…. And a civilian aircraft was a law enforcement matter to be handled by law enforcement authorities and aviation authorities.”
(Editors note: Is Secretary Rumsfeld saying that an airliner hijacked by terrorists is a problem for local police? Do they have F16s?)
GORELICK: “So now I would like to talk about the aspects that were in your control. When the 1996 Olympics were being planned about what do we do when an aircraft is being hijacked and is flying into a stadium at the Olympics? What is the military’s response? What is it’s role?
And it has always been my assumption that even though, yes, you were looking out, that you have a responsibility to protect our airspace.
So my question is: In this summer of threat, what did you do to protect, let’s just say the Pentagon, from attack? Where were our aircraft when a missile is heading toward the Pentagon? Surely that is within the Pentagon’s responsibility to protect — force protection, to protect our facilities, to protect something — our headquarters, the Pentagon. Is there anything that we did at the Pentagon to prevent that harm in the spring and summer of ’01?”
RUMSFELD: “First let me respond as to what the responsibility of the Department of Defense has been with a hijacking. As I said, it was a law enforcement issue. And the Department of Defense has had various understandings with FAA whereby when someone squawks “hijack,” they have an arrangement with the Department of Defense that the military would send an airplane up and monitor the flight, but certainly in a hijack situation, did not have authority to shoot down a plane that was being hijacked.
The purpose of a hijack is to take the plane from one place to another place where it wasn’t intended to be going, not to fly it into buildings.”
(Editors note: Is this more perjury? Why had Secretary Rumsfeld ordered war games to protect against hijacked planes crashing into buildings, war games held on 9/11 by coincidence if one single statement in this answer is correct?)
GORELICK: “Was it your understanding that the NORAD pilots who were circling over Washington D.C. that morning had indeed received a shoot-down order?”
RUMSFELD: “When I arrived in the command centre, one of the first things I heard, was that the order had been given and that the pilots — correction, not the pilots necessarily, but the command had been given the instructions that their pilots could, in fact, use their weapons to shoot down a commercial airliners filled with our people in the event that the aircraft appeared to be behaving in a threatening way and an unresponsive way.”
(Editors note: If crashing planes into the World Trade Center isn’t threatening or “unresponsive,” what is?)
GORELICK: “Now, you make a distinction there between the command and the pilots. Was it your understanding that the pilots had received that order? MYERS: General Eberhart,told the staff, what he told me, as I recall, was that the pilots did — at the appropriate point when the authority to engage civilian airliners was given, that the pilots knew that fairly quickly. I mean, it went down through the chain of command.”
(Editors note: Did anyone understand this?)
RUMSFELD: It was on a threat conference call that it was given, and everybody heard it simultaneously. The question then would be — the reason I am hesitant is because we went through two or three iterations of the rules of engagement. And in the end, we ended up delegating that authority to, at the lowest level, I believe, to two stars.
(Editors note: I wonder how long that took? What is an “iteration” of a rule of engagement? Did we need 3 of them? Thousands were dying while Rumsfeld and Myer were “iterating” over and over.)
(Editors note: No matter how stupid something is, you can find a 4 star general in the Pentagon to salute it.)
RUMSFELD: “And the pilot would then describe the situation to that level. To the extent that level had time, they would come up to General Eberhart. To the extent Eberhart had time, he would come up to me. And to the extent I had time, I might talk to the president, which in fact, I did do on several occasions during the remainder of the day with respect to international flights heading to this country that were squawking “hijack.””
(Editors note: Does an analogy involving horses, barns and doors apply here?)
GORELICK: “I’m just trying to understand whether it is your understanding that the NORAD pilots themselves, who were circling over Washington, as you referred to in your statement, whether they knew that they had authority to shoot down a plane”
RUMSFELD: “I do not know what they thought. In fact, I haven’t talked to any of the pilots that were up there.”
