The FBI, on orders from the DOJ, routinely contrives loosely defined "crimes," allowing targeted individuals to be mercilessly prosecuted

I truly believe all Americans, especially those who are engaged in sophisticated, innovative economic engineering, are in grave danger of being indicted and prosecuted for reasons that have nothing to do with the concocted charges. Prosecutors know that if private sector innovation cannot be easily comprehended by governmental employees, a jury will not likely understand, making the chance of conviction very high. So prosecutors pursue its enemies who are engaged in very technical, sophisticated transactions and projects. It is a convenient way to cloak fake charges behind a complex fact set. That posture against the American people is more like cold war Russia than it is our beloved United States of America.

Q. How do others perceive your legal problems? Do you believe they understand what has gone on behind the scenes, or do they simply assume you "must have done something?"

 

A. Many presume I have done something wrong. However, many know my character and know my heart, and know that I would never do something I knew was wrong. In fact, I was trying to do something noble and honorable. Those who think I did something wrong do not understand all of the other sub-texts; the motives of the government if you will, to neutralize my voice. That is the problem whistleblowers have. Those on the outside do not understand what is really going on behind the scenes. All they see or hear is the accusation and the government's carefully crafted narrative. It is never, ever, that simple. There is always so much more to the story, and often the story is tangled in twists, turns, complexities, nuances, etc. Those are the very scenarios the prosecutor will pursue, because truth is stranger than fiction, and it is difficult for outsiders, and sometimes even family members, to grasp what is really driving the prosecution. I will say this, I've learned that most of the time, the motive driving the prosecution is not what the prosecution says it is. My true friends have stood by me through thick and thin, and I cannot say how thankful I am for that. 

 

Q. Recent news stories have revealed a wider war on whistleblowers. When did it first occur to you that your case was part of a larger pattern and how has this shaped your view of your prosecution?

A. I published five animated PowerPoint presentations on YouTube in 2012; long before the IRS targeting scandal broke; long before the AP news scandal; long before Benghazi. However, there was the Fast and Furious Scandal, the Secret Service prostitution scandal and others, but I still felt alone. In the introductory PowerPoint presentation to the five presentations previously mentioned, I refer to myself as a whistleblower. That's exactly what I was. But I did not have any idea how malignant the epidemic had become until April of this year (2013). 

 

Now I know I am almost a statistic, as sad as that sounds.   There are not hundreds of others like me, but thousands. Where is the Department of Justice getting all of its funding to attack honorable citizens who simply call out improper behavior by their own government? The Department of Justice needs to have its funding adjusted downward in a significant way. What is going to happen when every American is in prison? Only a revolution awaits. We will not tolerate this abuse anymore. Enough is enough.
