FBI Cargo Cult: Junk Science and the Federal Coproach by Bill Buppert

“They might not love Big Brother, but they knew he was part of the family now.”

Tim Weiner, Enemies: A History of the FBI

The FBI has been under fire in the past year for various and sundry crimes against logic and probity and this is much more deeply ingrained in the culture of the political agency since its founding. It was developed as the original secret police organization for the US government to wield to seek its political ends.

The sacking of Comey the Commie is simply the latest above-ground evidence that the agency is broken for its ostensible purpose of crime investigation and simply exists as an American analog to the Cheka, NKVD, KGB and Gestapo. It even reflagged its purpose with the blank check moniker of national security.

It has relied on Lysenko-style science that would make the Russians blush in embarrassment. Fingerprint and hair analysis are simply the most recent blunders of applying junk science to crime fighting.

Louise Robbins, the crackpot anthropologist, developed a cottage industry of nonsense sending folks to prison for bootprints. Many in the “just-us” system fell for it hook, line and sinker.

Much like the scientism that informs the climate alarmism that has so damaged proper science in the last generation, the FBI has invested much of its reputation on the “scientific” notions of fingerprints and hair analysis but all turns out to be dust and shadows.

The FBI conducted the criminal pursuit of an alleged terrorist on March 11, 2004, several bombs exploded in Madrid’s subway system with 191 killed and 1,460 injured.

The FBI sent two of their senor fingerprint analysts to Spain on a mission to salvage the Bureau from humiliation. The two analysts did their best, returning with the claim that the fingerprint sent to the FBI by the Spanish police was of “no value for identification purposes”, a claim which the inspector general later shot down by pointing that only a few weeks thereafter the FBI’s latent fingerprint unit concurred with the Spanish national police lab’s determination that the print on the bag matched the right middle finger of Ouhnane Daoud.

It all turned out to be garbage and throughout the years, more and more skepticism has been aimed the notion of fingerprinting having a unique capability to individuate criminal suspects. Mind you, much if this started to crumble under the heroic gaze of DOJ IG Glenn Fine. If independent review of this had been done by non-government civilians, the charade would have long ago crumbled and tens of thousands of innocents people would be living normal lives (and even survived not being sent to Death Row).

Even more so, if modern journalists weren’t state stenographers and actually practiced critical thinking,f much of this travesty would have been exposed.

And hair analysis is more voodoo science that the government has given tremendous traction to.

Of 28 examiners with the FBI Laboratory’s microscopic hair comparison unit, 26 overstated forensic matches in ways that favored prosecutors in more than 95 percent of the 268 trials reviewed so far, according to the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL) and the Innocence Project, which are assisting the government with the country’s largest post-conviction review of questioned forensic evidence.

The cases include those of 32 defendants sentenced to death. Of those, 14 have been executed or died in prison, the groups said under an agreement with the government to release results after the review of the first 200 convictions. Keep in mind that the Federal judicial system is a finely honed system of prosecution where not only do more than 90 percent of the cases get pled but the follow-on cases that actually make it to trial see more than 93 percent of the defendants convicted. A combination of bottomless pockets (fed by the taxpayers held and robber at gunpoint), a public carefully mesmerized by televised police procedurals that make forensic science seem like a magic bullet, the advantage of monopoly judiciary authority and the Stockholm Syndrome behavior of American juries.

When you stand in an American courtroom at any level as a defendant, you are likely the only non-government employee in the entire room.

Arson investigations and the use of expert witnesses are just as much subject to the junk science attributes of hair and fingerprint analysis. I’ve spoken at length of the fraud at the Force Science Institute before. Not to mention the bloodcurdling and sickening police sycophancy of the monstrous Dave Grossman and killology. I consider LTC Dave Grossman’s hypothesis of “killology” to be junk science; if even a fresh-faced Wehrmacht recruit, who had undergone at least five years of Hitler Youth conditioning prior to being inducted couldn’t handle the idea that the people he was shooting were merely “sub-human,” then how the hell are Grossman’s claims going to hold water?

This is the nonsense used to convict and at the other end of the processing spectrum for getting into the American gulag we have the use of dogs to establish RAS and PC.

Dog scent lineups are another facet of the arsenal of bad science that political law enforcement uses in the US to fill up the prison systems at every level.

This criteria makes it abundantly clear that there is no room for either the deputy or his dog in the courtroom. Dog scent lineups belong in the discredited science closet with its ancient kindred “the world is flat” discipline.

The distressing news here is that literally hundreds of thousands of people in the US “just-us” system have been quite literally caged and murdered using not questionable forensic methodologies but continuing to do so as doubt was cast on them over the decades.

I haven’t even discussed the kabuki that FBI entrapment in terrorist plots across the nation.

FBI AD Thomas Fuentes:

If you’re submitting budget proposals for a law enforcement agency, for an intelligence agency, you’re not going to submit the proposal that “We won the war on terror and everything’s great,” cuz the first thing that’s gonna happen is your budget’s gonna be cut in half. You know, it’s my opposite of Jesse Jackson’s ‘Keep Hope Alive’—it’s ‘Keep Fear Alive.’ Keep it alive.

 It simply continues unchecked and the usual suspects in the media continue their job as human megaphones for government disinformation and misdirection at every turn.

Something has to be done to justify all that terrorism spending. For all those law enforcement agents with little to do, why not sit around and manufacture plots to justify those expenditures, giving a boost to their pro-surveillance ideology to boot? Media outlets have a responsibility to investigate the FBI’s claims, not mindlessly repeat them while parading their alarmed faces and scary graphics.

Now couple this with the vast tapestry of laws on the books in which the only victim is the state, the tens of thousands of cases of police brutality and misconduct over the least decades and the harnessing to a system in which the prosecutor gets away with everything in a fixed system of justice that favors the conviction of the defendant every time and you have a recipe for putting hundreds of thousands of Americans on parole, probation or in cages.

The FBI is the tip of the iceberg and the conversion of FBI HQ in DC and all its tentacled offices into homeless shelters and the cashiering of the entire agency would go a long way toward true justice in America.

But then again, prosecution is big business and it is yet another manifestation of the immorality of the state’s “just-us” system.

And don’t forget, NEVER talk to the police.


“The answer was Stellar Wind. The NSA would eavesdrop freely against Americans and aliens in the United States without probable cause or search warrants. It would mine and assay the electronic records of millions of telephone conversations—both callers and receivers—and the subject lines of e-mails, including names and Internet addresses. Then it would send the refined intelligence to the Bureau for action. Stellar Wind resurrected Cold War tactics with twenty-first-century technology. It let the FBI work with the NSA outside of the limits of the law. As Cheney knew from his days at the White House in the wake of Watergate, the NSA and the FBI had worked that way up until 1972, when the Supreme Court unanimously outlawed warrantless wiretaps. Stellar Wind blew past the Supreme Court on the authority of a dubious opinion sent to the White House the week that the Patriot Act became law. It came from John Yoo, a thirty-four-year-old lawyer in the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel who had clerked for Justice Clarence Thomas. Yoo wrote that the Constitution’s protections against warrantless searches and seizures did not apply to military operations in the United States. The NSA was a military agency; Congress had authorized Bush to use military force; therefore he had the power to use the NSA against anyone anywhere in America. The president was “free from the constraints of the Fourth Amendment,” Yoo wrote. So the FBI would be free as well.”

  2. How odd. FBI has a hair sample and use ‘hair matching’ when the best possible use of the sample is DNA testing. The difference I guess busts their budget…

    1. The best modern analogy is The Matrix. It is really rich with parallels and cautionary insights.

      “You’ve been living in a dreamworld Neo” and the “Agents” are fertile ground.

  3. I’m not convinced that DNA has any credibility . I’m one of the last generations to remember the Thalidomide babies that science blessed us with . When you can close your eyes and still see the malformed child carried by a devastated Mother it sticks with you and gives an outstanding and reliable skepticism of the religion of science.

    Go ahead and Google the term Thalidomide . Then click on images . I realize the Earth is not flat but I also can see the darkened heart of men . The higher up the political food chain you climb the darker becomes the soul .

      “The heart is more deceitful than all else; And is desperately sick” Jeremiah 17:9

      Those with political power get to act out more than the rest of us. And yes, we humans are the problem.

  4. And we won’t even get into the whole “lie detector” scam that’s been going on for decades now. It’s akin to the “e-meters” that Scientologist quacks use. With about the same accuracy and reliability. Yet there they are….

    It seems we confuse extremists with the extremities…
    I think the one thing that most all people miss, is of all the problems caused are cause by people, mostly all the really smart people. Right, left and all in the middle the problem is the human race, racist! Control Alt Delete the extremes. Alt this and that is just another name for what people do, the politics of it is no less regardless left, right paradigm shifts ever so slightly back and forth over time the extremities, government is still about your money and not much else. I mean except if you live in an ALT ternet reality, or is that inter.

    And now for you global climate exchange rates of about 25 cents on the dollar, which I like to call the cost of breathing the government air, need I say drinking the government water, (for which you can make your own it Kool Aid) even when it rains, you get rained on by government rain, ditch drained, now get out there and drive to work in your government regulated car on the government owned roads while obeying all the government speed limit signs and yield to no one’s road rage, finger you, with your implication of consent, I imply, to the government owned speed traps for which you are guilty until proven incompetent, if caught by the law. Drunk with power to license and permit and administrative punishment your eminent domain and civil forfeiture, you are owned by them. Take a deep breath, it may be you last. You the goose that laid the 20 trillion dollar golden goose eggs, (think a lot of zero’s here) done been cooked in the books, need I say cash cowed out down on the animal farms well regulated and of course ignorance of the law is no excuse if you cannot understand the entire library of congress, there is a law in there somewhat to make you a criminal if them want. And then an item of little interest and means nothing, however it may be interesting and mean something, that is 1984 added up is 22 and them, 2017 is 10. But if you add 1984 and 2017 it is 4001+22+10=4033, yet 1984 from 2017, subtracted is 33 and 2017 subtracted from 1984 is -33 which added up =0, yep that right ZERO! New government math, I suppose. The Russians did it? Nothing about the atomic number of arsenic there? And +33 is the direct dial number of the French that are fried.

    Romper rooms, Weebles wobble but they don’t fall down. And off course all things Humpty Dumpty with all the Kings horses and all the kings’ men, and yes girls coursings hunt clubs, too. How’s that for a camp pain slogun? Weebles Wobbles, but them can’t fall down? Or, perhaps dump the spineless jelly bellies is more to the point. Nixonian, did somebody say Nixon own e an? Pumpkin Papers to you! And of course the reason for you Hissy fits, I X plain. Whitaker Chambers the X communist turned on Alger Hiss (hissy fit) by hiding smoking gun documents and micro films in a pumpkin (hence the term Pumpkin Papers) for safe keeping and turn them over to Richard Nixon and Joe McCarthy of the House UN American Activities Committee. As you may not recall Alger was in the State Department (think Hillary here, namely Joey Stalin and off course the Russian RESET) and chief executive spy for the Russians, founding member of the United Nations and agent for change (think communism here), for change (read money). Alger, the spy, had FDR’s ear and feeding him communist propaganda with care, obviously for his heath care concerns and socialist insecurities, New Deal I suppose.

    Squirrel! Where the hell did you think Boris Badenov and Natasha Fatale came from, some cartoon from 1959 about Russia spies, Squirrel and Moose? NOPE! It was Richard Nixon. And of course Joe McCarthy, Joey Stalin (fearless leader, reincarnated as Vlad Putin?) FDR and perhaps Harry Truman (the big bomber, think A (H) bomb here). World’s greatest no-goodnik Alger Hiss, (James Comey?), who is Boris. Not sayin anything there, but maybe, ya never really know with spies, ya know? Raskolikov! The only real question is who is Mr. Big today? Sharrup you mouth, Natasha!

    Damn Communists! Need I suggest “Witness” by Whitaker Chambers? In 1955, William F. Buckley Jr. started the magazine National Review, and Chambers worked there as senior editor, publishing articles there for a little over a year and a half (October 1957–June 1959). The most widely cited article to date is a scathing review, “Big Sister is Watching You”, of Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged. (WiPe)

    Now, as Mr. North said a while back all the old communist are dead, not to worry, they will make more on, ya know? The Kenneth Star Chamber/Whitaker Chambers having nothing to do with the English law, the court made up of judges and privy councillors that grew out of the medieval king’s council as a supplement to the … Kenneth Star, Independent Counsel, Special Prosecutor, Archibald Cox or Vince Foster. or does it? Not that I know anything, but what if FDR was taken out because he would not drop the big bombs? What if JFK was taken out for reason other than party line thinking and propaganda? What if a Supreme Court judge was too? Too, replace with someone that was appealing to the groupthink, but failed. Nope that would never happen, or would it? Them what if MLK, Malcolm X and Bobby Kennedy and the ambassador in Benghazi and others, along with Extortion 17 were somehow linked in the fog of political new war, unrestricted? I offer Plausible Deniability and of course reasonable doubt to cover it all up.

    Unrelated, or perhaps it is, On May 4, 2006, Starr announced that he would represent the school board of Juneau, Alaska, in its appeal to the United States Supreme Court in a case brought by a former student, Joseph Frederick. The former student unfurled a banner at a school sponsored event saying “Bong Hits 4 Jesus” as the Olympic torch was passing through Juneau, before arriving in Salt Lake City, Utah, for the 2002 Winter Olympics. The board decided to suspend the student. The student then sued and won at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, which stated that the board violated the student’s first amendment right to free speech.[38] On August 28, 2006, Starr filed a writ of certiorari for a hearing with the Supreme Court.[39] On June 21, 2007, in an opinion authored by Chief Justice John G. Roberts, the court ruled in favor of Starr’s client, finding that “a principal may, consistent with the First Amendment, restrict student speech at a school event, when that speech is reasonably viewed as promoting illegal drug use.”[40] In 2007, Starr joined the legal team of Palm Beach billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, who was criminally accused of the statutory rape of numerous underage high school students.[45] Epstein would later plea bargain to plead guilty to several charges of soliciting prostitutes and serve 13 months in a private wing of the Palm Beach jail.[46](WiPe) Think Billy Clinton here.

    My fav O rite of passages, the Billary, aka, Hillary Clinton from the Saul Alinski School of progressive thoughts of Chicago style political racketeering with a pant suit, who needs a pen and phone, just dictate. And no I have nothing more to offer than political commenteering, or do I? What if she were to write a book, Phyllis Dru>>> Administrator! Wouldn’t that be fun? Perhaps, “It Takes a Village”? I never RED the book.

    Now I would like to address the warrior class, those with special training to do what nobody wants to talk about, but first understand something, “ours is not to question why, but to do or die! Nope! Part of that training was not to question your betters, was it not? Think rank and file here. And further, you took an oath, to protect and defend and to not talk back to your betters because of some idea of a constitution and loyalty. What if I told you, almost everything you were ordered to do was unconstitutional? You flunked human class! Or, perhaps more human than most, you decide?

    That said, there is necessity and utility of such beings trained. You have purpose; some have talent, not all, but some. That is why you are not Generals, ya know? War is hell and that is where you want to go, so be it, let’s get it on and over with. As I was instructed, to Kill Kill Kill with cold cold steel, you gonna die, not me! Never got a chance to do that, but was instructed as to the appropriate use of the O bay O net, basically training. As necessity dictates it shall be done, to the best of your ability.

    You should know the difference between killing and murder, however. You shall not murder. But the choice to kill or be killed for good reason, it is the decision you and you alone will make, for good reason is permitted. To murder with malice and fore thought is wrong. You shall not murder. That is a commandment. To protect your family and those you know is your decision. Those that order you to murder are wrong. Do not live their hell; you will have enough of your own. Hope that clears things up, there is difference and you know it. Proof of that is, some day you will die, hopefully not by murder, or perhaps assassination which isis the same thing.

    War and conflict is to be expected, be prepared. There is need of you. However, you should be aware of who you fight and the reason for it. If there is no clear reason and no way out, that is a bad situation. Is it a good fight for a good reason, or will it be for sport of politicians and dictators? A test of wills perhaps, or claim of property, or of a government saving face, still the choice is yours? The reason I say this is not because of the Russians, the Chinese, the Iranians, or even North Koreans, it is the Monkey Trials going on your TV and radio, on our very own it national news media, the main scream, need I say. Why is that? A good quest and the answer is to cover up what is really going on. It is an agenda, you should know. The real enemy is within and them are US.

    Take a deep breath, neither man nor government created air, which is our atmosphere, or water or energy; it was here all along for our discovery. The question is why do we consent to them being governed, or even ourselves? I mean other than the basic tenants of a civil society, such as the ten words and perhaps the Bill of Rights, why submit to all the rest? The point here is what right does government have if we did not consent? The answer is none. The US Constitution does not give the US government any right to govern an individual, it was Liberty taken. That is why the US Constitution is dead and gone long ago because just about everything government does today is UN-Constitutional! Government, It is little more that the Monkey Trials played out on your TV, if you care to watch. Be aware, if you don’t, you consent to be governed by default, it is your fault, ya know?

    “Give me liberty, or give me death!” is a quotation attributed to Patrick Henry from a speech he made to the Second Virginia Convention on March 23, 1775, at St. John’s Church in Richmond, Virginia.

    However, in our Alt, left, alt Right, inter, extra and ternet, UN-civil society the choice is “Give US, FREE STUFF, to Hell with your liberty”? Damn Communists.

    PS, A man without a country?

    And them, the real takers. With obviously diversity, mutli-cult-tourism and off course non a gender specificity of the church of the emasculated deceptions, sold to you by all the really smart people, mostly not from here (think globally and cheap labor and of course NGO’s mostly paid for by of course you), but own the mineral rights under your feet, the air above your head and the water that falls from the skies, not to mention with intension navigate able waterways, right down to the molecular level of up you’re DNA ass, them own you and you don’t know it, ya know?

    WHO are them, and where did your Comprehensive Plan come from? The short answer is all the really smart people of the United Nation of mostly Communist and socialists, and of course their agendas. The only question I have is, did you consent to be governed by the United Nations of mostly Communist and socialists? And of course, did you vote for that? The short answer is NO! Or perhaps YES, if you voted for a Democrat or a Republician.

    1. Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for
    Sustainable Development
    The General Assembly
    Adopts the following outcome document of the United Nations summit for the
    adoption of the post-2015 development agenda:
    Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable
    This Agenda (comprehensive plan?) is a plan of action for people, planet and prosperity (who’s prosperity?). It also seeks
    to strengthen universal peace in larger freedom (define peace and freedom). We recognize that eradicating
    poverty (kill them) in all its forms and dimensions, including extreme poverty (extreme rendition), is the greatest
    global challenge and an indispensable requirement for sustainable development. (who is sustainable?)
    All countries and all stakeholders, acting in collaborative partnership, will
    implement this plan (your local government). We are resolved to free the human race from the tyranny of
    poverty and want and to heal and secure our planet (and obviously, them are the new world order and kinga and queens of the world too, to lead you down the path to righteousness, or perhaps serfdom. We are determined to take the
    bold and transformative steps which are urgently needed to shift the world on to a
    sustainable and resilient path. As we embark on this collective journey, we pledge
    that no one will be left behind. (dead or alive) (and, just exactly WHO is we?
    The 17 Sustainable Development Goals and 169 targets which we are
    announcing today demonstrate the scale and ambition of this new universal Agenda (comprehensive plan).
    They seek to build on the Millennium Development Goals and complete what they
    did not achieve. They seek to realize the human rights of all and to achieve gender
    equality and the empowerment of all women and girls( and the hell with you boys). They are integrated and
    indivisible and balance the three dimensions of sustainable development: the
    economic, social and environmental. (need I suggest mental deficiencies’ and off course visions of grandeur)
    The Goals (gods) and targets (YOU) will stimulate action over the next 15 years in areas of
    critical importance for humanity and the planet. (and perhaps the end of the world as we know it)

    You should read the rest of the agendas, just for fun, excuse me, I meant funding with your taxes.
    What them don’t tell you, the way to end poverty and hunger is to eliminate all the poor people, but them will not tell you that. Now, get out there and vote for your fav O rite politician that voted in your comprehensive planning and supports the UN agendas, most of them do, because them are really smart people that know better than you, ya know? You voted for it, now you, gonna pay for it.

    1. That is one of the most incoherent rants I’ve ever had the pain to read. I’ll keep it there as a warning to others.

      1. Thank you for your kind words, I will treasure them always. Did you read it all? Pain was intended. And, please do.

      2. Bill,

        You read that reply? Lord have mercy. I never read any reply that long. Have something to say, write an article and post it on his own blog or if it has merit someone else’s blog.

        I took the FBI fingerprint course. 5 days of horseshit. They even admit in the class it is not science but an art and depends on the user who “interprets” the prints.

  7. Hey, Joe, above, you should learn to write in a not-so inchoate fashion.
    James Joyce you’re not. But the coherent points you did have, well taken.

    1. Writing in English is the most ingenious torture ever devised for sins committed in previous lives. The English reading public explains the reason why. James Joyce

      They say the same of the Irish and Finn, I am both, you can always tell them, but you can’t tell them much. Thank for the comment.
