    A whistleblower has emerged in the controversy of Governor Jerry Brown’s use of state oil experts to study his own family’s private land. Jennie Catalano, a mapping specialist for the California Department of Conservation, says she faced retaliation after complaining about being required to do personal work for Brown. It is illegal for politicians to use state resources for personal benefit. Brown says he used the same resources available to any Californian. The Associated Press confirmed the whistleblower complaint, which is separate from the original legal action by Kern County farmers alleging that Brown colluded with oil companies over the...

    Pimco, the bond investment giant, responded on Monday to a $200 million lawsuit filed by its former star portfolio manager, William H. Gross, by asking that his claim be dismissed as "legally groundless." Mr. Gross sued his former company about a month ago, arguing that he was illegally removed from the firm, where he had worked for 40 years, and was deprived of money owed to him. Pimco recently hired the prominent lawyer David Boies to lead its defense. And while Mr. Gross has chronicled a Shakespearean plot on the part of his former colleagues to force him from a...

    The Navy is poised to promote the admiral in charge of its elite SEAL teams and other commando units even though Pentagon investigators determined that he illegally retaliated against staff members whom he mistakenly suspected were whistleblowers. Rear Adm. Brian Losey was investigated five times by the Defense Department's inspector general after subordinates complained that he had wrongly fired, demoted or punished them during a vengeful but fruitless hunt for the person who had anonymously reported him for a minor travel-policy infraction, according to documents obtained by The Washington Post. After conducting separate, years-long investigations that involved more than 100...
  • Whistleblower Employed By Federal Whistleblower Protection Program Fired For Blowing The Whistle

    In an interview with NBC Bay Area earlier this year, Whitman said he tried to warn OSHA leaders that his managers pressured investigators to close complaints without proper review to clear a backlog of cases. Whitman said his supervisor altered his reports by changing his conclusions and dismissed cases even when Whitman found they had merit. It didn't stop there: Whitman wrote letters to OSHA leadership and to the U.S. Secretary of Labor, Thomas Perez. "I had gone through every conceivable channel and what I saw was inaction," Whitman said. In the end Whitman told NBC Bay Area that he...

    Rep. Vern Buchanan (R., Fla.) is demanding that the decorated Green Beret who blew the whistle on U.S.-allied Afghan forces raping boys be reinstated by the Army immediately. Buchanan labeled war hero Sgt. 1st Class Charles Martlands dismissal from the force a national disgrace. Martland stood up for an Afghan rape victim in 2011. Driving Sgt. Martland out of the Army is a national disgrace, Buchanan said in a statement. He stood up for American values and should be commended, not punished. This week, reports surfaced that U.S. soldiers and Marines have been instructed to ignore suspicions of Afghan forces...

    MADISON, Wis. Something was missing in U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwins statement last week criticizing staff at the Tomah Veterans Affairs Medical Center. The Department Veterans Affairs Office of Inspector General Office released a report finding psychiatrists at the facility failed to discuss the health hazards of synthetic opiates they prescribed to Marine Corps veteran Jason Simcakoski. The 35-year-old Simcakoski died in August 2014 after he was prescribed a fatal mixture of opiates and Valium, although the report did leave open the possibility Simcakoski could have taken additional doses. This report confirms that the Tomah VA physicians entrusted with Jasons...

But there is at least one small sliver of justice coming down the pike which might begin to make the entire ordeal seem worth the battles involved.

  • Obama Admin Gets Sick Revenge on Green Beret Who Worked With GOP to Free American Hostages

    As the American people have watched the horrific rise and expansion of the radical Islamic State group over the past year or two, they have also witnessed helplessly as several Americans have been taken hostage and executed by the radical Islamic jihadists. Such atrocities spurred a member of the Armys Green Berets to contact Congress and blow the whistle on the Obama administrations policies dealing with rescuing American hostages. But while American hostages held by terrorists barely garner a nod from the administration, whistleblowing about it certainly gets their attention, as Lt. Col. Jason Amerine has found out.

    Last week, CBSs news magazine program 60 Minutes issued a contrite apology and retraction for a chilling eyewitness report on the Benghazi massacre [2] and the publishing company Simon & Schuster pulled the book The Embassy House from retailers. Dylan Davies, the author of the book and source for the report, was painted as a dishonest guy looking to make a buck off of a tragedy. Davies has now been discredited by none other than our own government. That would be the same government that allowed Hillary Clinton to play hooky from the Congressional hearings [3] about the massacre. (Perhaps...

    Perhaps this one of the most important discussion threads ever regarding Legacy Media manipulation.

Believe it or not, just creating this discussion thread is risky. We are unable to expand.

    Weve watched as the Department of Homeland Security has beefed up to the point that SWAT teams under DHS authority from no less than seventy government agencies, including the National Weather Service and the Library of Congress, can load some of their 2 billion rounds of hollow point ammunition (enough to fight an Iraq-intensity conflict for 24 years) into their thousands of brand new MRAPS and take down a major city as we saw recently in Boston. This is the domestic army as powerful as the U.S. military that Barack Obama promised to raise when he campaigned for President; and...

    Earlier this week, the ACLU sent a letter to ATF Deputy Director Thomas Brandon after an outside working application submitted by ATF Special Agent and Operation Fast and Furious whistleblower John Dodson was denied. Dodson's outside work application was for a book manuscript, The Unarmed Truth: My Fight to Blow the Whistle and Expose Fast and Furious, which Dodson worked on in his own time. The request was denied by Deputy Ethics Official Greg Serres in August 2013 on the basis that supervisors can deny outside employment for any reason" and that the publication of his manuscript would have a...

    Yeah, its Army camo. Tell it to the Marines.Bad Pentagon civilian leadership brings about one of two outcomes really principled, good uniformed leaders emerge, or really corrupt, bad ones. USMC Commandant General James Amos is cementing his image as a really corrupt, bad one by attempts to crush Major James Weirick. Weirick is the JAG whistleblower whose revelations about Amoss perseverating Unlawful Command Influence led to the prosecution giving up on a case we covered that prosecution collapse last month, and have further coverage (Google search) of the Case of the Micturating Marines. Maj. Weirick, a staff judge...
