Scrawls on National Security, Technology, Civil Liberties, and Foreign Affairs

HOMELAND SECURITY POLICY INSTITUTE:
The crooked company committing these bank thefts was formed inside the U.S. Secret Service Financial Crimes Division by their then-Regional Supervisor Paul Rakowski. Beckett Brown International (BBI) committed numerous racketeering and corporate espionage crimes planned, directed and carried out by retired high-level USSS agents. It is my contention that a massive “culture of corruption” at Secret Service began no later than with the formation of this outfit which specialized in stealing trade secrets and proprietary information.

Baltimore Lawyer Threw Own Client’s Case to Protect Bank-Robbing Banker from Scrutiny

Further, my source says [ in a letter to The Department of Homeland Security, Office of Inspector General ] . . .

” I have personal knowledge – and literally a ton of evidence – that a ginormous culture of corruption has been going on at the U.S. Secret Service for at least 20 years.  A business plan for Beckett Brown International dated April 8, 1994 was given to me later during that year.  The USSS Regional Supervisor of the Financial Crimes Division was the driving force behind that plan and my investment of large sums of money into that company.  That agent turned out to be a crook and Beckett Brown International turned out to be a criminal enterprise.  Paul Rakowski belongs behind bars and all the racketeering crimes committed under his watch need to be exposed as what experts are calling the biggest corporate espionage scandal of all-time…”

. . . so they cannot pretend they don’t know who the culprits are.

Texas Fertilizer Plant Explosion – Updated

[updates to the story will go here]

Before It’s News – West Texas Fertilizer Missle? Bomb? – Video

Huffington Post is following this aftermath –

An expert in chemical safety standards said the two major federal government programs that are supposed to ensure chemical safety in industry – led by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) – do not regulate the handling or storage of ammonium nitrate. That task falls largely to the DHS and the local and state agencies that oversee emergency planning and response.

“. . . the fertilizer plant hadn’t been inspected by the Labor Department’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) since 1985, when the company was fined $30.”

5-11 – Fire That Left 15 Dead at Texas Fertilizer Plant Is Ruled Intentional

“The announcement by investigators with the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives came three years after the explosion at the West Fertilizer Company plant on April 17, 2013. In the years since, law enforcement officials had never revealed a cause. They had previously said three possibilities were under consideration: faulty electrical wiring, a short-circuit in an electric golf cart or arson.”
