Real Terror in America – Political Corruption and Incompetence

Homeland Security Fusion Centers – Just Another Budget Scam


“When you see this program killed and its entire budget dedicated to fighting Israeli espionage throughout the country, you will know a coup has taken place in our government.” ….Jim W. Dean


        …by  Jim W. Dean, VT Editor


Janet Napolitano

American’s “pop culture” news is filled with stories of Iran suffering financially under sanctions.  Sitting in a nation, long bankrupt, $16 trillion dollars in foreign debt, bleeding cash into Israel, money spent to push America into another losing war, and all our press can talk about is Iran.

It would be fair to talk about the worldwide financial meltdown but, even then, some difficult questions might be asked, such as; “Who caused it?” Nobody wants those answers.

Thus, the drowning man, going down for the last time,  points a finger and laughs at the man on shore who is running short of drinking water and feels smug. His enemy is finally feeling “sanctions” even though the “drowning man” may never live long enough to enjoy the moment of empty triumph.

No one wants to talk about how the War on Terror turned out to be a terror campaign on America. The old America was blown up by the Bush NeoCons, freedoms gone, constant surveillance, a generation of wealth stolen with help of our own Congress, the Money Mullahs.

One page of this history will be the recent scathing Senate report on the billions wasted by Department of Homeland Security on make believe counter terrorism programs. It got its one day of publicity but all the reporting I have read about it so far has a huge missing item. The billions wasted on the Intel sharing Fusion Center program is just the tip of the iceberg.

The whole war on terror has ended up being a cash cow that has funded those who have turned out to be some of our most dangerous enemies. Banksters and gangsters teamed up with mortgage fraud crooks and Neo-Colonialism hustlers to terrorize America on a scale that no Jihadi ever dreamed possible.

Bush lied to us when he said the Muslims hated us for our freedom and wanted to take that away. The proof? After 911 the State Department did a worldwide major survey of Muslim attitudes toward America. The results were startling, with upwards to 90% liking the American people and most wanting to move here if they could. The majority of their negative comments all focused around the American ‘government’ policies in the Mid East.

Bush was of course aware of this study. But he went ahead and shamed our country by lying through his teeth about the Muslims all wanting to come after us. Why did he do it? He knew the report was on record that totally refuted what he was saying.

Bush was not going to let anything get in his way of exploiting 911 to play the big man and go after Saddam. The NeoCon crowd had been harping for years about pre-emptive strikes, eliminating ‘potential’ enemies.

Israeli Intelligence was all on board and the Lobby made sure their Congressional lackeys followed suit.

Donald Rumsfeld is on record for stating that because we had spent all this money on the American military it should be used for something, I guess like starting some wars.

He anointed himself the ‘war on the cheap’ architect, the modern warrior. Victory would not take long, the cost predictable. We could put in another puppet government to deal with the locals. The expat Iraqis were rejected out of hand.

Almost everything the Bush Neocons told us was a lie…the estimates that we could recover the war cost with just a few years of Iraqi oil revenues, that there would be no real resistance because we would build Disney land parks, MacDonalds, and bring Madonna in for free concerts so everyone would love America.

The NeoCon crowd was clueless and delusional about what was facing them. Anybody in the Pentagon who put legitimate warnings on the table was purged. General Eric Shinseki was the first of many. Terror started in the Pentagon. Open your mouth and you got kicked out, period. The officer corps got the message and the dual Israeli citizens there were taking names as always.

But there was something else they were not delusional about. The Bush Neocons were going to ride the war not only to the big pot of gold from the war economy, but also use the annual ‘defense’ appropriations, all borrowed money, to continually fund their own shadow intelligence and special ops capability via outsourcing to entities 100% under their control.

When Shinseki told the truth his career got car bombed by Donald Rumsfeld and the Army abandoned him as they usually do when political corruption steps in.

The war contracting graft was just a jump start. They were also looking at oil and taking over the heroin business. Someone came up with the concept that leaving it in the hands of drug dealers was a national security risk.

So American service men and women would fight and die for oil pipelines and a War on Terror excuse that would put an Amway billionaire’s son-in-law in the private army business, funded by the American taxpayer, but available to moonlight on jobs only for the home team.

Veterans Today still has a reward out for a photo of the Taliban’s flying mules who are airlifting that $60 billion in heroin out of Afghanistan and into the criminal cabal coffers. The cabal makes a good part of that available to buy both political and prosecution protection from current and future national leaderships who want to say goodbye to campaign funding problems.

Our own Supreme Court left the foreign campaign funding back door wide open with their Citizens United case ruling. And our Intel sources tell us that international drug dealers were not only attending Romney’s fundraisers overseas, but even got to fly on the plane.

If you are thinking that I forgot about the wasted billions, I did not. The folks back home, the ‘right folks’, they had to get a little piece of the war pie, also. Funding poured into the new homeland security and it was looted and pilfered to the best of the insiders’ abilities.

To most American politicians and constituents there is no such thing as wasted funding as long as they are getting it. Taking good care of state law enforcement is always a political priority. When the recession started kicking in with forced early retirements and layoffs even for government workers, taking care of those people buys you a lot of campaign support..

Fancy Fusion Centers became another pork barrel scam

The DHS Fusion Center billions coordinating federal and state Intel were used as a piggy bank for law enforcement with the right connections. The report describes training for the report personnel was only five days (the bells went ringing on that).

There was no further testing or follow up after that. And the states would be put in control of how the money was spent (more bells).

In plain English that meant the Fusion funds would replace recession budget cuts in departments, fund patronage, and help buy commando toys.

For example even smaller cities wanted their expensive emergency mobile command centers, things they could never get their local taxpayers to fund.

Because they all knew there was no significant terrorism going on here there would be plenty of money to divert, and as the Senate report shows they certainly did. As for reports they just generated some garbage, some so bad they shocked the investigators. Six hundred reviewed for one year had nothing to do with terrorism. But it gets worse.

There was no federal oversight for the first five years folks. The grant process was so complicated that DHS could only estimate how much they spent on the fusion centers. This was not left out by accident. It was a designed graft fraud by people who already had a lot of experience in doing this. With no real terrorists to catch, the Barney Fife’s at the Fusion Centers started making up threats of terrorists hiding about every bush.

The corruption went so deep that we had reports of Abe Foxman’s  Anti-Defamation League and Morris Dee’s   Southern Poverty Law Center   infiltrating DHS to get some bad reports issued on selected targets. They need these to create some new bogeyman fundraising initiatives.

Both organizations are considered subversive by many high level Intel professionals for this and other activities. The ADL’s long history of creating bogus threat intel to get law enforcement to harass and smear their ideological opponents is documented back to the Hoover days.

The FBI director would never speak at an ADL convention because he knew they just wanted to use that to help their penetration of American law enforcement. This Hoover firewall remained in place until Ronald Reagan came in and order all FBI offices to formally liaison with local ADL snitches and smearmeisters in their own attack on America.

On the list along with the hyped up militia threat, were War on Terror vets returning to a county where traitors were stealing their tax money, putting their families in debt, and using them to fill in for the absent terrorists to keep their paychecks flowing. That is why I used the title above. These people are the real terrorists, and the worst ones.

The FBI and DoJ do not escape some of the responsibility in all this. To generate some statistics for their ‘terrorist’ work they began their sting operations, most of them shocking in their transparent entrapment. When they snagged the border line black kids in North Miami they held a big press conference.

The stage was so full with those wanting to get camera face time I feared it might collapse. And when they began reading off all the names of the different agencies involved, it was so long I almost went to sleep. I knew right there that paychecks were being validated to keep the money flowing, the American dream for a certain kind of American who hides his true colors and loyalties.

The old school Intel community was embarrassed and ashamed by this circus act.  The later ‘assassination’ sting on the Saudi ambassador was so shocking in it’s attempt to frame Iran that even mass media had to finally start pointing out the charade. We also noticed that these cases seemed to break into the news at politically important times.

Cadet Shinseki at West Point – 1965

After all their lies, all of their failures, their looting and selling the troops out for thirty pieces of silver, there is no loyalty to the command structure. Everyone in a position to be crooked is considered a potential threat and dealt with as such.

When Congress had the chance to turn the tide a bit with the new whistle blower legislation that Sibel Edmonds and her crew spent years pushing for, Congress shut it down, putting another nail in the public’s dwindling respect for them.

Fifty percent of West Pointers have been punching out after their five year commitment. I have interviewed some parents. Many saw it all for what it was, a mercenary imperial exercise of looting and graft that had absolutely nothing to do with protecting America, but quite the opposite. That was a bitter post college education to have to swallow.

We could have done a better job defending ourselves by building hospitals and schools throughout the Muslim world at a fraction of the War cost, and saved all of those lives and suffering.

So I close by asking our Muslim friends out there to remember this distinction. You have enemies here for sure. We can even give you their names. But they do not include most Americans, nor even the military returning from the combat theaters.

Who would want to be ruled over by American gangsters? We don’t here. Maybe we can work out some kind of deal to get rid our ours, the militant Israelis, the drug dealer cabal and the market bombers, so we could be free of them all. May God help to do so, as we really need the help.

    What is the most significant piece of evidence/documentation that could be shown to the most skeptical of people that should convince them that 9/11 is what it is?


    • Jim W. Dean  October 10, 2012 at 4:54 pm

      The infrared overhead photos of the the three buildings taken down show temperature of molten granite several weeks later. There is only one thing that could have melted the granite under the buildings and no conventional explosive could have done it.

      Also, you have never seen a photo of a huge pile of steel removed from the twin towers site, because there was none. Most of it was vaporized with the concrete.

      Any building demolition crew can tell you that yes there is a lot of dust, but basically most of the building debris has to be hauled away after a demolition. Why? Because they have to bid on the cost of hauling it away.

    As Jim said elsewhere, “these Fusion Centers are a classic. Even post 911, pork barrel was still with us, and as the recession kicked in, Congressman wanted every dime they could get for their states and districts, and really could care less what the output was as no one accepts responsibility for failed projects.”

    Journalists, writers for American press and media, HELLO!… We know you read Veterans Today. Could you please help, and like, actually write something?

    • michaelalexander  October 8, 2012 at 4:40 pm

      Actually, all of us students at UT law in Austin talk about this stuff all the time after we saw Sabrosky on Presstv. It was hard as hell convincing people of Israel’s role, false flag, WTC, etc. I first started out with Uss Liberty to demonstrate not just the possibility, but more importantly, THAT IT ACTUALLY TOOK PLACE!!

      Once they were sure the event was a historical event, they would sit on it for a week or so and ask for more info; and now we’re about a couple of dozen law students researching israeli-(I hate to even say) American roles in orchestrating 911; and even more broadly, their role as a whole in our country.

      We sent out info and invites just last week to other law students across the country to file lawsuits for defamation against the ADL and received over 150 responses. We’re planning on sending a few hundred more this week. Keep the evidence coming, as it will be of use to us post 2014 graduation.

      That’s heartening to read, Michael. Thank you. And good luck in your endeavors!

      As someone who is a civil engineer, I consider the raw video of the collapses of WTC 1 and 2 to be sufficient evidence of fairly powerful internal explosions (not something kerosene could ever do), while the collapse of WTC 7 is textbook controlled demolition with columns being progressively blown floor by floor to drop the building within its own footprint.

    • Ann  October 9, 2012 at 6:20 am

      Michael, I know this is off topic but it is related in the sense of treason and abuse of citizenry. The name “Tokyo Rose” is synonymous with traitor, but the abuse of this young American citizen and the repeated lies and from the highest levels, and the systematic destruction of her good name and her life by the very parasites who planned and started the war/hoax in the first place is one of the most shameful episodes in our wartime history.


      It infuriates me when I hear that disgusting epithet from time to time, because it was only the cowards in DC who used her as a human shield.

    • Excalibur  October 9, 2012 at 12:35 pm

      Well done Michael. You might also want to gain access to a book (which I think somebody also put on line somewhere but I can’t vouch for whether this is an accurate version) – called: ‘The Nameless War’ written by Captain Archibald H. M. Ramsay, MP. Published in 1952.

      Captain Ramsay was a British officer, educated at Eton College and the Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst. He served in the 2nd Battalion the Coldstream Guards in the First World War until he was severely wounded in 1916 – thereafter at Regimental HQ and the War Office – and the British War Mission in Paris until the end of the war.

      From 1920 he became a Member of Her Majesty’s Scottish bodyguard. In 1931 he was elected a Member of Parliament for Midlothian and Peebleshire, in Scotland. His loyalty and patriotism to Britain and the British Crown was beyond doubt.

      Captain Ramsay discovered secret information showing that Britain had been deceived and steamrollered into a war against Germany AGAIN by certain jewish banking groups – and tried to take this to the Prime Minister and warn the British public. Instead he was arrested under regulation 18b on 23rd May, 1940, he was detained, without charge or trial, in a cell in Brixton prison until the 26th September 1944. The following morning he resumed his seat in the House of Commons and remained there until the end of that Parliament in 1945.

      Captain Ramsay, with all his considerable connections in society, had still been silenced by the power of the jewish banking cartel. All the men – and even the aristocracy – who had met and talked with Rudolph Hess on his peace trip to Britain – then suffered fatal accidents. This is an important work for legal students because although it deals principally with Britain (which up until then had a worldwide Empire) the precedent of how the cabal operates is the same.

      When the US is destroyed and sucked to a dry husk – they will then hop to the next international power house to manipulate, subvert in their interests and begin feeding.

    • Ann  October 9, 2012 at 5:48 pm

      Brit. Adm. Consett spotted goods and supplies from all over the world being sent into Germany via Scandinavia while he was posted there. At war’s end he put it all into a carefully documented book:


      This book should be required reading at every British military branch, along with other armed forces as an expose of how badly sovereign nations have been usurped and set at each other’s throats.

  4. DaveE  October 8, 2012 at 2:22 pm

    Good work, Jim, as always.

  5. Excalibur  October 8, 2012 at 1:39 pm

    A brilliant and hard-hitting article Jim – and sadly a very accurate one.

    The enemy within the system are not going to like it. The right thinking, loyal Americans still within the system will take heart at it – that somebody out there has the guts, the inside info – and the integrity – to openly highlight and complain about what is going on.

    These are not small issues, after all. America has been the target of a standard judaic inversion and exploitation operation – lasting decades. They will not (and cannot) stop doing this without action being taken to halt them. America has been very deliberately infiltrated, subverted, it’s laws and societal cohesion poisoned, hijacked and even bombed into their criminal compliance. The country is now being abused and siphoned by the cabal as the population – and especially the children – are psychologically battered into submission and mind slavery.

    Will the real Americans now please stand up. It is time to throw out the unwanted and highly abusive guests.

    I wonder how much time and money the staff members at the fusion centers spend tracking and observing the large number of Mossad agents running wild in the United States.

    The US government wastes a vast amount of money every year because Israeli did 911. Perhaps they should spend some money to make sure Israel doesn’t due a false flag on election day 11/6.

    • Gerry  October 8, 2012 at 12:10 pm

      “I wonder how much time and money the staff members at the fusion centers spend tracking and observing the large number of Mossad agents running wild in the United States.”

      They wouldn’t have to go far. I’m sure there is at least one in every center.

    • Jim W. Dean  October 8, 2012 at 2:11 pm

      Oh Gerry, they probably have the communications contract on all of these set ups. They are really into centralized spying now. Once a contract has been awarded, nobody really investigates any more as they assume the people went through a rigorous check ahead of time.

      They don’t not know the our new DHS director Michael Chertoff flew to Israel where he was a citizen, early in the WoT to put on ‘fast track’ seminars so Israeli companies would not miss out on key contracts that were being done quickly. And yes, they were very interested in communications contracts.

      It was the perfect scam…everything being rushed…no one daring to put themselves in the cross hairs by challenging.

    • Worker Bee  October 8, 2012 at 9:50 pm

      Why bother catching Mossad agents? In most cases the maximum punishment for being an Israeli spy is a seat on the next El Al flight to Tel Aviv.

  7. Brian  October 8, 2012 at 11:50 am

    Senate report: ‘Fusion centers’ meant to combat terrorism found to spy on U.S. citizens. Excerpt from the article:

    It’s also not the first time fusion centers were caught spying on American Muslims. It was revealed in 2009 that a fusion center in Texas published a bulletin stating that it was “imperative” to monitor “the activities of lobbying groups, Muslim civil rights organizations and anti-war protest groups in their areas.” The bulletin (pdf here) reported on the activities of the Council on American Islamic Relations, and warned that “Middle Eastern Terrorist groups and their supporting organizations have been successful in gaining support for Islamic goals in the United States and providing an environment for terrorist organizations to flourish.”

    No proof was offered to tie CAIR to terrorism in the report. Some of the sources the fusion center used to warn of threats from Muslim groups came from right-wing, anti-Muslim websites like David Horowitz’s Front Page Magazine.

    Brian: I wonder how much time and money the fusion center staff members spent tracking and observing the large number of Mossad agents running wild in the United States.

    The US government wastes a vast amount of money every year because Israeli did 911. Perhaps they should spend some money to make sure Israel doesn’t due a false flag on election day 11/6

  8. Gerry  October 8, 2012 at 11:33 am

    The War on Terror like it’s predecessor the War on Some Drugs was designed to fail from the beginning. Their sole purpose is the destruction of civil rights, personal freedom and the institution of a total tyranny. The perpetrators are insatiable and will not give in without a fight. We here a know who they are and it’s quickly going to become a matter of us or them.

    Thanks Jim.

  9. mpennery  October 8, 2012 at 10:54 am

    Amen, Jim, amen.
    I have many Muslim friends in Lexington, all I know from coaching their children. They all eventually come to find out my feelings about 9/11 and every single one of them has known the official story is a lie and know who the real evildoers are. They still love and live (stay) in our country and I suppose only because they know it’s not the people that are the problem but that we’ve been highjacked. My guess is that most of the rest of the world knows this too or we would have already been wiped off the face of the planet for what our government has and is doing.

    • Dan  October 8, 2012 at 1:52 pm

      Your comment about Muslims generally loving our country got me thinking about what is, on the other hand, the appropriate reference class for those others who came to this country looking for a better life and, while allowed to maintain themselves as a people apart, showed their gratitude by parasitizing our economy and subverting civil society.

      Over in England, Eric Hobsbawm just died at 95. This evil monster, having sought and found refuge there, proceeded to build a career and fortune out of hating everything British, and most particularly England’s everyday people. He was a Marxist historian who sought the overthrow of everything British and establishing in its place that Talmudic despotism euphemistically known as communism. He famously said on TV that murdering 10 or 20 million Russian Christians was worth it and, if he were in charge, he’d do it again. Despite all that, he was lionized by the media and received every literary and academic award imaginable. Sounds all too familiar.

      Hobsbawm’s ilk over here have been just as successful in destroying this country as he was over there, of course. Our middle class is being economically exterminated to minimize the need to physically exterminate them, but primarily to transfer the wealth earned by the sweat of middle class brows over to the banking cartel and Wall St, who, not so ironically in view of what happened in Russia, turn out to be the same people who’ve all along been the money behind communism.

      We have no culture to speak of any longer, and the relentless attempt to sow civil discord is now aimed at even our children, like the ones you coach, whose TV programming and movies are filled with vicious dialogue and hatred for parents, community, church, and country. They’ve undermined our judicial system and they’ve undermined our education system, to the point they are the adversaries of everything we think of as American. They’ve even challenged our most basic human right to speak and be taken at what we say. That is, they deny our very humanity itself, just as Hobsbawm did.

      Congress and every administration since Wilson has been public theater put on by American Hobsbawms for undiscerning dupes. I was one of those dupes for most of my life. At least VT and people like Jim Dean tell it like it is. It’s definitely not too late, but time’s running out before the purges begin. The biggest dupes remaining are probably in the military and federal law enforcement, since the purges will begin with them, and when all the Genl Shinseki’s are gone, so is America.
