DOJ Scheme to Silence Former U.S. Customs Agent
Exposing Corruption Undermining National Security
John Carman had been a Secret Service Agent and then an agent for U.S. Customs along the California-Mexican border. It was in this position that he discovered as part of his official duties actions by Customs superiors that allowed suspected drug shipments to pass without inspection, as well as to prevent apprehension of illegal aliens. Carman’s attempts to report and take actions on these serious violations resulted in Carman leaving government service after 17 years for U.S. Customs.
What is routinely done by the corrupt actions of FBI-DOJ employees can be done to any one of you, the public, because of being uninformed, disinterested, and unorganized.
High-Level Corruption Causing Dedicated And
Competent Personnel to Leave Government Service
Carman then started a private investigative company. Also, he posted a web site (www.customscorruption.com), listing many of the corrupt activities of high-level Customs officials, including the names of some of them. Other U.S. Customs Agents, including Darlene Fitzgerald, had discovered similar corruption in U.S. Customs. Her web site describing this corruption is http://www.bordergate.net.
Customs officials started monitoring Carman’s activities, and in one instance caused local police to stop Carman’s vehicle and inspect it for contraband. This stop caused Carman to file a civil action against the government, which further aggravated them.
There are countless numbers of competent and personnel leaving government service because of high-level incompetence, self-serving politics, and corruption, making possible the endless series of national tragedies.
Using Standard FBI-DOJ Tactics to Silence a Former
Government Agent Exposing High-Level Corruption
A scheme was then concocted, started by FBI personnel, which resulted in false charges filed against Carman. To carry out the scheme, FBI officials used a deported illegal alien, a former Mexican police officer, Eloy Fernandez Fernandez. Fernandez once worked for U.S. Customs as an informant, until he reported the bribes received by two U.S. Customs officials along the Mexican border. That scheme involved a case that Carman was working on.
Ironically, the American public that is victimized by selective attacks on the people, remain pathetically uninformed about what is being done to them as a group that they allow this practice to continue.
FBI Agents Misused Carman’s
Investigative Work to Entrap Him
Carman’s investigative company had a client who was involved in a custody battle with a former wife, and this wife was planning a trip to Mexico. According to the former husband, the woman used illegal drugs. Carman and the woman’s former husband planned to report the woman to
Mexican police when she traveled to Mexico, informing them that they believed she was carrying drugs for her personal use.
Carman contacted Fernandez, who represented himself to Carman as a Mexican police officer, and agreed to stop the woman and search for drugs. Then, assuming that drugs would be found, the woman would be arrested and the children accompanying her would be turned over to her former husband. Although this type of conduct was distasteful, it was nevertheless the conduct that could be expected of an investigative agency, but probably not illegal.
Somewhere along the way, Fernandez was secretly working with the FBI, and the statements made by Fernandez were used as the primary basis
for the charges made against Carman
The Corrupt Role of the U.S. Attorney
In the Bush Administration
Before the plan was carried out by Carman and the alleged Mexican police officer, Fernandez, San Diego U.S. Attorney Karen Hewitt charged Carman (March 16, 2007) with a scheme to kidnap the woman involved in the custody battle and hold her for ransom.
The Complaint for Violation of Title 18 USC § 956 (conspiracy to kill, kidnap, maim, or injure persons or damage property in a foreign country), was originally filed on March 16, 2007 and ordered sealed by the court. This was later unsealed on Marcy 19, 2007.
The scheme at the lower FBI level involved FBI Special Agent Michael Lombardi, who filed a fabricated declaration with the court. Among the false statements was that “Carman knowingly and intentionally conspired with others known and unknown to kidnap and hold for ransom a United States citizen in Mexico, and has committed an overt act in furtherance of said conspiracy while in the territorial jurisdiction of the United States in
violation of Title 18 U.S.C. Sections 956.”
More Lies to Deny Bail to Carman
Then to deny bail to Carman while waiting trial, the U.S. attorney charged that Carman was a danger to the public and a flight risk. Magistrate Cathy Ann Bencivengo, beholden to the Department of Justice, denied bail.
Magistrates seek to be promoted to federal judges, which require pleasing Department of Justice officials. I found myself in a similar position many years earlier as DOJ officials sought to silence me. (Details in History of Aviation Disasters: 1950 to 9/11.)
The charge by the U.S. attorney against a dedicated former U.S. Customs agent was based solely on the statements of the Mexican alien,
Ties to the White House Politicians'
Firing of Nine U.S. Attorneys
It is of interest that the firing of U.S. Attorney Carol Lam by the Bush White House, along with eight others, was to halt her continued investigation of Republican politicians, such as Representative Cunningham that brought the additional indictment of a former key CIA official, Kyle Foggo, and a prominent defense contractor and campaign contributor to President George W. Bush, Brent Wilkes. (See the book, Congress and Other Cesspools.) The Bush White House replaced fired U.S. Attorney Carol Lam with Karen Hewitt, who wasted no time to go after Carman who was exposing high-level corruption in government.
FBI’s Corrupt Culture and History
of Tragedy-Enabling Misconduct
Another interesting aspect of this scheme to obstruct justice was that the scheme against Carman was initiated by the FBI, the same agency in which FBI agents in the Boston and New York offices were involved in numerous murders with organized crime figures. (Details are in the books, Crimes of the FBI-DOJ, Mafia, and al Qaeda; History of Aviation Disasters: 1950 to 9/11; and FBI, CIA, the Mob, and Treachery.)

The Real Reason for Fernandez’ Deportation in 1996
A press release issued in 1996 by U.S. Customs referred to Fernandez and the alleged reason for his deportation:
Janet Napolitano, United States Attorney for the District of Arizona, announced today that Eloy Fernandez-Fernandez, 47 years old, a Mexican National residing in Yuma, pled guilty in Federal District Court in Phoenix, Arizona, to making false statements to the United States Government. Fernandez admitted that on September 5 and 26, 1996, he made false oral and written statements to agents of the Office of Inspector General of the
Treasury Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation in order to induce those agencies to allow him to remain in the U.S. when he would otherwise be facing potential deportation.
Mr. Fernandez admitted that he fabricated a story that in September 1992, while present in the office of a Mexican police official in Tijuana, Mexico, he saw the Mexican official hand a shaving kit containing a large amount of U.S. currency to two men. Fernandez said that at the time of the incident he recognized one of the men as …….. a former employee of the U.S. Customs Service. Fernandez said he did not know at the time who the second man was, but that he later learned that the man was … an employee of the U.S. Customs Service.
Fernandez said he fabricated the statement because he was concerned about his immigration status, was facing imminent exclusion from the United States, and had concluded that by making the false statement to law enforcement agents he could get them to allow him to remain in the United States to assist in an investigation of his claims.
Based upon what former federal agent Rodney Stich learned about U.S. Customs, and what Carman and other U.S. Customs agents had discovered, what many other former government agents had told Stich, and a long history of tactics used by DOJ personnel, Fernandez did in fact witness the bribing of U.S. Customs agents. He was probably threatened with a fabricated criminal charge if he did not change his story and say that he was fabricating what he witnessed. Years later, the use of that same former Mexican police officer to frame a former U.S. Customs agent who was exposing too much of the corruption, was probably associated with a secret agreement to allow Fernandez to return to the United States.
Former Customs Agent Darlene Fitzpatrick
Darlene Fitzpatrick worked with John Carman and discovered the actions by high Customs officials that blocked vehicles and railway cars suspected of carrying drugs from being inspected. She suffered persecution for attempting to protect border security. See her web site at www.bordergate.com
Naive Jury Held Carman Guilty
A naive jury in San Diego decided Carman was guilty, despite absence of any evidence and despite the obvious lying by the U.S. attorney. In this manner, they aided and abetted the corruption in the Department of Justice, and insured that the ripple effects from the corruption would continue.

These few examples of the horrors associated with airline disasters enabled to occur by documented corruption withheld from the American people. The standard culture of cover-ups in the United States enabled the corruption, cover-ups, to mutate into different areas. In the aviation area, although the continuing series of airline disasters eventually came to a halt for other reasons, the culture continued, and enabled to occur a number of easily preventable airline disasters. The inbred culture created the conditions that enabled four groups of terrorists to easily hijack four airliners within a few hours of each other and kill nearly 3,000 people.

Victims of Other Forms of Corrupt Bureaucrats
There were many other forms of victims from the systemic high-level corruption. These included for instance victims of the:
Department of Justice prosecutorial misconduct, people being falsely charges with crimes in order to improve the prosecutors' career.
The explosion of violent crime related to drug smuggling into the United States, in which CIA assets were major players.
Series of financial frauds appearing every few years, with the latest housing and financial implosions surfacing in 2008.
Seizure of assets from innocent people.
And many other forms.
These offenses are described in the books written by insiders.
Corruption of the Type Described at this site does not occur in a vacuum. High-level corruption in one area is simply one tentacle of a widespread culture of corruption. And the consequences of that corruption−and the endemic cover-ups−have consequences in other areas. The culture of corruption affects the people and the nation in many other ways, That includes the latest series of financial frauds that has occurred in the housing and financial sectors. Also, the effect of the endemic corruption and endemic cover-ups−major parts of the culture in the United States−that enablers successful terrorist attacks upon U.S. interests.
Harm Suffered by People in Other Countries From
Conduct of Corrupt U.S. Leaders
In addition to the decades of harm resulting from the systemic corruption of key people and groups in the U.S. government, affecting aviation safety, financial, human rights, in the United States, there is the harm from outside sources brought about by the actions of U.S. politicians affecting people in other countries—such as the history of invading and killing foreigners—there are the successful "terrorist" attacks made possible by high-level corruption, and then there are the foreigners who are also victims from the same high-level corruption that adversely affects the American, but in a different form.
Remains of a girl—about the age of the 9-year-old Killed in Tucson in January 2011.
In criminal law, people are accomplices, and guilty, if they know of a criminal act and fail to report it to proper authorities and also to take efforts within their capability to halt their continuation. And there are endless numbers of accomplices that are complicit in these crimes and enablers of the consequences.
Suggestion to people outside the United States. Become familiar with the documented systemic corruption in the United States and show the outrage lacking of people in the United States, and:
Help expose the endemic corruption that seem to be acceptable to the American people, and maybe wake them up.
Help to protect yourselves against the decades of ham inflicted upon people of other countries by the actions of U.S. politicians—supported by much of the American public. Examples:
Serial lying by U.S. politicians to use as a pretense to invade Iraq and Afghanistan, killing tens of thousands of innocent people.
U.S. politicians shifting enabling blame from their own corrupt actions that encouraged and enabled four groups of terrorists to simultaneously hijack four airliners, and shift the blame to the people of Iraq and Afghanistan—with the help of a dumbed-down American public that is mostly too lazy to learn the truth.
