Heroes & American Martyrs
This site provides a minute sampling of former government agents and other insiders who sought to expose and fight some segment of the endemic corruption that has mutated throughout the government of the United States. These are not the "heroes" that Americans worship: the professional ball players and the many others recipients of the title is an insult to the real heroes. America has a host of real heroes, but possibly not recognized as it makes others who fail to stand up to corruption in government look like cowards.
These real heroes paid a heavy price for attempting to fight the Trojan horse corruption responsible for an endless series of harm to the American public and the United States. The most recent consequences of their failed quest would include the series of major terrorist attacks upon the United States during the lasts decade, and the massive frauds in the housing and financial sectors. For instance:
The endemic corruption in the government's aviation safety offices responsible for 50 years of preventable aviation disasters, the most recent and highly publicized being the hijackings of four airliners on September 11, 2001. And this list will continue to grow, thanks to the continuing corruption, continuing cover-ups, and continuing apathy of the American public.
The corrupt culture of those people in control of the Department of Justice.
The culture of cover-ups by the bribe-taking members of Congress.
The culture of cover-ups by media people and media corporations that withhold information, or engage in disinformation, when the corruption of certain key high-level people in government exceeds a certain level that involves resulting deaths or other great harm to Americans and the country..
The history of pathetic indifference and cowardice of most Americans.

FBI Agent and War Hero: Richard Taus
Like most of the others, public apathy helped put him where he is, in a New York State prison. Richard Taus was a highly decorated helicopter pilot, risking his life many times to rescue wounded soldiers during the Vietnam War. After the war he became an FBI Special Agent in the New York City offices. During these official duties, Taus discovered corrupt and criminal activities that the FBI was required by law to investigate. Taus was repeatedly blocked from carrying out his official duties by his supervisor, DeVecchio.
Among the corrupt and criminal practices that Taus sought to report were the following:
Secret funding and arming of Iraq during the 1980s, that enabled Saddam Hussein to invade Kuwait, which was the start of two military attacks by the United States against Iraq that killed over 4,000 American service personnel and hundreds of thousands of Iraqis.
Criminal activities among various New York Mafia groups, which he was ordered to ignore by his immediate FBI supervisor: Lindley DeVecchio. DeVecchio was involved in multiple murders with New York City mafia capo, Gregory Scarpa Sr. (known as "The Killing Machine.") Details in the book, Crimes of the FBI-DOJ, and the Mafia.
Seeking to circumvent the cover-up culture in the FBI-DOJ, he reported the serious problems to members of Congress. As other government agents had discovered, including federal airline safety inspector Rodney Stich, members of Congress repeatedly covered up for these corrupt practices (making them accomplices and enablers in the resulting consequences).
Compounding the obstruction of justice problems, FBI and DOJ officials first charged Taus with misuse of a government credit card to quickly remove him from office. The charge alleged that Taus placed a $8 charge on the government-issued credit card−four years earlier−while using his personal car on a government surveillance while a government vehicle was not available. (The issuance off the credit card was for purposes such as that.)
Then, the Kings County district attorney on Staten Island, New York, charged Taus with having improper conduct with several teenagers at a FBI-front athletic club. It is believed that the testimony of the teenagers were influenced by threats against their parents for alleged welfare fraud. For New York prosecutors, with their long history of corrupt activities, to file false charges against Taus would be a natural. Taus was then sentenced to 25-40 years in prison.
The Rest of the Story
This writer would discover additional and even more serious misconduct relating to the retaliatory actions taken against Taus. For instance:
For years, FBI supervisor DeVecchio was involved in murders with a New York Colombo Mafia capo, Gregory Scarpa, Sr., in murders and other crimes. The gravity of Scarpa's crimes can be understood from the nickname that Scarpa had: "The Killing Machine."
High FBI and other DOJ personnel, in order to protect DeVecchio and prevent the public from learning about the many years of murders involving DeVecchio−and those who protected this relationship−prevented information about major terrorist attacks upon U.S. targets to be used to block actions against the attacks. The forewarned attacks did occur, and over 4,000 people were killed. Details:
The son of "The Killing Machine," Gregory Scarpa Jr., acted as a mole inside a major al Qaeda cell headed by infamous Ramzi Yousef. Yousef was the mastermind behind the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center and the mastermind behind the planned bombing of 11 U.S. airliners departing Far East locations.
Gregory was providing periodic reports to local FBI agents on what he was discovering about the planned terrorist attacks from Yousef. That information was then blocked by high FBI-DOJ officials. And that in turn blocked preventative measures to be taken. The terrorist attacks that the mole inside the al Qaeda cell were being passed on to the FBI were: (a) downing of a U.S. airliners departing the New York area (the warning given shortly before TWA Flight 800 was downed after taking off from New York's JFK airport; (b) the bombing of U.S. Embassies in Africa, which did occur; and (c) the hijacking of airliners (that did occur on September 11, 2001).
And much more, as detailed and documented in the book, Crimes of the FBI-DOJ, and the Mafia.
In February 2009, Taus filed a motion for clemency with New York Governor David Paterson. Taus' release threatened many people who were involved in the above matters or covered up for them.
Former federal agent Rodney Stich took that opportunity to not only speak in support of Taus' motion, but also to expose a much larger problem−with tentacles to 9/11, murders involving a key FBI supervisor, and the culture within the U.S. Department of Justice. (MS Word) (Adobe PDF)

Unfortunately, by releasing Taus, it risks exposing vast areas of criminal activities involving key FBI-DOJ personnel, including multiple murders perpetrated by his supervisor, Lindley DeVecchio, that were perpetrated with Mafia capo known as "The Killing Machine."
Former U.S. Customs Agent: John Carman
John Carman, former agent of U.S. Customs and Secret Service agent. He is now incarcerated at the MCC at San Diego, after seeking to expose corruption of officials in U.S. Customs and other government offices. To get an idea of why Department of Justice officials wanted to silence him, go to his web site (before it is taken down) at www.customscorruption.com.
Putting him in prison, standard DOJ practice, kept the public from discovering the corruption. (But his earlier attempts to make the public aware of the corruption encountered the standard do-nothing by the American public.) The latest on John Carman: (MS Word) (Adobe PDF)

Affidavit by another former agent of U.S. Customs, Darlene Fitzgerald, September 18, 2001, confirming the corrupt actions by upper management allowing major drug shipments to cross into the United States. Also, a letter written by her on June 15, 2007. Also, her May 10, 1999, letter to the Office of Independent Counsel, reporting the corruption in U.S. Customs that subverts border security efforts. See her web site at www.bordergate.net. Seeking to silence Carman, the U.S. attorney argued that he should not be released on bail pending trial, which hindered his defense, and when his lawyer appealed the refusal to grant bail, three judges in the U.S. Court of appeals also denied him bail. Anyone except the most dangerous of criminals are granted bail before and during trial.

Ironically, while members of Congress allegedly anguishes themselves with what to do about security along the Mexican border, members of Congress and Department of Justice personnel cover up for the subversion of border security by people responsible for protecting the borders. Worst, they all cover-up for the retaliation against those true American heroes attempting to protect national interests. (But then, this has been a national trait for years in all segments of government!) More information here.
In October 2007, a brain-dead group of jurors in San Diego, believing everything that the U.S. attorney told them, convicted John Carman. He became the latest victim of the corruption in government and the apathetic American public.

Ronald Rewald: Head of CIA Proprietary
Titular head of a covert CIA operation based in Honolulu, Ronald Rewald was falsely charged with criminal activities by DOJ prosecutors conspiring with CIA officials, so as to divert attention from the CIA involvement after the cover was blown on the operation by a Honolulu television reporter. Ten years in prison, failing health, and IRS hounding to this day, was part of the price paid by Rewald and his family for the culture of corruption that controls American today. Details in the books, Disavow: A CIA Saga of Betrayal; Explosive Secrets of Covert CIA Companies; Defrauding America; and Drugging America. Highlights here.
Former DEA Agent: Stephen Swanson
Stephen M. Swanson, retired DEA agent. After he retired, while carrying out verbal authority from DEA agents to infiltrate a drug smuggling operation, DOJ prosecutors charged him with being the kingpin in the operation. During trial, and under heavy emotional stress from the false charges and false arguments presented to the jury by the U.S. attorney, Swanson committed suicide in 2000 so that his dying wife would not be denied the medical benefits that were part of the retirement benefits, but would be lost if he was held guilty. Details in the book, Drugging America, with additional details here.
Former FAA Inspector: Mary Diefenderfer
Mary Diefenderfer was a federal aviation safety inspector-investigator, the principle operations inspectors for Alaska Airlines. She left her government position after being repeatedly harassed for reporting the defective maintenance practices at Alaska Airlines. Shortly thereafter, an Alaskan DC-9 aircraft plunged into the ocean off Southern California, with the death of all on board. The NTSB found defective maintenance related to lubrication of a jackscrew that controlled the horizontal stabilizer. Numerous other examples of FAA personnel in similar situations is described in the book, Unfriendly Skies: 20th & 21st Centuries.
Former FAA inspector: Rodney Stich
Rodney Stich is a former federal aviation safety agent who discovered vast amounts of corruption in government. The corruption he initially discovered was of people in the government's aviation safety offices that enabled to occur many preventable airline disasters, including the hijackings of four airliners on September 11, 28001. Later, as he wrote books and appeared as guest and expert on hundreds of radio and television shows, he learned of corruption in other areas of government from the many government agents and others that came to him.
To silence him, over 50 lawyers, and over a dozen judges, striped him of his life assets, Judges then then issued unlawful orders barring him for the remained of his life from filing any papers in federal courts (reporting the criminal activities under the federal crime reporting statute, Title 18 U.S.C. Section 4). Then, when he sought to report additional criminal activities (some of which would be heavily involved in the conditions that enabled terrorists to hijack four airliners on 9/11, DOJ prosecutors and federal judges charged him with criminal contempt of court and sentenced him to federal prison. These actions greatly assisted the terrorists to hijack four airliners on 9/11 and kill 3000 people.
These matters are described in several books, including Blowback, 9/11 and Cover-ups; Unfriendly Skies: 20th & 21st Centuries; and Defrauding America.
Sampling of Others Suffering The
Consequences of Reporting Deadly corruption
Another list witness List and whistleblower retaliation. These are only the tip of the iceberg. Media people don't report them, so the only people knowing of the countless human tragedies arising from the arrogance and corruption in the three branches of government are the victims, if they are still alive, and their families and friends.
One of the very latest victims was former DEA agent Celerino Castillo, who paid the price for exposing the drug smuggling involved with the Iran-Contra operations during the Reagan-Bush administrations.
Consumed by such trivia as Michael Jackson, Sarah Palin, Nicole Smith, Britney Spears, the American public could care less about how they had been, and would continue to suffer, from the Trojan Horse corruption. They were following the footsteps of the German people under Adolf Hitler, and were blissfully indifferent to be taken for fools.
People Under Hitler, and People in United States
A poem was written by Martin Niemoller that depicts a fact of life that most Americans have yet to learn:
First they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out, because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the Communists, and I did not speak out, because I was not a Communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out, because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for me, and there was no one left to speak out for me.
Pastor Martin Niemöller
Pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) first supported the rise of Adolf Hitler, and then upon learning the truth, and objecting, he was imprisoned. He wrote a poem about the state of denial of Germans about what Hitler was doing. Probably no better example could be shown than what has been done to the American people, in their name, while they lazily ignored the outrages.
U.S. Supreme Court Justices' Attacks On
Government Personnel Reporting
The Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in a May 30, 2006, decision that government power can be used to retaliate against anyone in government exposing corruption, and that includes corruption subverting the United States. That decision is known as Garcetti v. Ceballos, 128 S.Ct. 1951.
In 2007, the Senate was ready to vote on a whistleblower bill to provide protection to government whistleblowers, but Senator Tom Coburn of Oklahoma raised objections, and the vote was blocked. By a very undemocratic rule, any senator can raise objection to further vote on a bill. (A prior Oklahoma senator, Senator David Boren, chairman of the aviation subcommittee, also blocked actions that would result in many preventable airline tragedies, as detailed in the book, Unfriendly Skies: 20th & 21st Centuries.)
Upon hearing of Senator Coburn's action, former federal agent Rodney Stich sent Coburn a letter, with copies to the other members of the Senate judiciary committee, objecting to the hold and giving examples of how urgent the legislation was. (MS Word) (Adobe PDF)
Sampling of forewarned aviation disasters associated with attempts to report corruption responsible for their occurrence.
The following aviation disasters occurred after prior information of their occurrence was "deep-sixth." More information about a mole inside a key al Qaeda cell:
TWA Flight 800, departing a New York City airport was downed, shortly thereafter. Strong Suspicion of Terrorist Act. See the book, Unfriendly Skies: 20th & 21st Centuries. This link provides information on 100 surface-to-air missiles being made available to Middle East terrorists about one year before the downing of TWA Flight 800; the rejection of the missiles by FBI-CIA personnel, and the letters written by former federal agent Rodney Stich to members of Congress seeking to prevent the transfer of the missiles. No response−followed by the missile downing of TWA Flight 800. Followed by the need for the standard cover-up to protect high-level government personnel.

Consequences of Corruption and Attacks
Upon Whistleblowers Were
Not Limited to Aviation
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.
