"You do not become a 'dissident' just because you decide one day to take up this most unusual career.

You are thrown into it by a sense of responsibility, combined with a complex set of external circumstances.

You are cast out of the existing hierarchical structures and placed in a position of conflict within them.

It begins as an attempt to do your work well, and ends with being branded an enemy of society.

The dissident does not operate in the realm of power.

The dissident is not seeking power.

The dissident has no desire for an office of power.

computer criminals are terrorists

The dissident does not attempt to charm the public.

The dissident offers nothing and promises nothing.

The dissident can offer only his or her own skin - and the dissident offers it solely because the dissident has no other way of affirming the truth he or she stands for.

The dissident's actions simply articulate his or her dignity as a citizen, regardless of the cost." - Vaclav Havel

The government has invoked the state secrets privilege to evade accountability for torture, to silence national security whistleblowers, and even to dismiss a lawsuit alleging racial discrimination.

2006 $33 million contract awarded to Moving Water Industries Corporation.

Army Corps of Engineers officials in New Orleans installed MWI's 34 pumps on three major drainage canals before the 2006 hurricane season despite a warning by Maria Garzino, the whistleblower, that the pumps would fail if put to the test during a hurricane.

MWI is owned by J. David Eller and his sons.

J. David Eller was once a business partner of Jeb Bush in a venture called Bush-El that marketed MWI pumps.

2008 "Army Corps of Engineers officials did not violate any rules when they allowed defective pumps to be installed after Hurricane Katrina, according to a report by the Defense Department's inspector general.

The report's findings will be reviewed by the United States Office of Special Counsel, an independent federal agency that handles complaints by whistleblowers including a corps engineer who warned in early 2006 that the pumps would not work properly." - Cain Burdeau 6/13/2008

July 2008 Over 900 cases made by whistleblowers alleging that government contractors and drug makers have defrauded taxpayers are languishing in a backlog that has built up over the last decade because the Justice Department has been ordered to ignore them.

Many cases involve the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, rising healthcare payouts and privatization of government functions - all offer rich new opportunities to swindle taxpayers.

"My name is Fred Whitehurst and my life's work is dangerously close to being destroyed.

I am a former FBI Supervisory Special Agent who blew the whistle in 1993 on forensic fraud in the FBI crime lab.

I was looking forward to seeing President Obama and Congress fulfill their promise to strengthen whistleblower rights.

I was horrified to discover that the Senate whistleblower bill S. 372 repeals the FBI whistleblower protections that I sacrificed my career for.

I am not only a whistleblower, I am also an attorney who personally read the law and can tell you that S. 372 sets back whistleblower rights 30 years." - Fred Whitehurst

2006 Los Angeles prosecutor Richard Ceballos wrote a memo suggesting a Los Angeles county sheriff's deputy had lied in a search warrant affidavit.

The US Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit ruled that Richard Ceballos' statements about a potential lie in a search-warrant affidavit were "inherently a matter of public concern" protected by the Constitution.

The Supreme Court decided that the 'memo was inflammatory' and that a government employee while performing his official duties may be fired or demoted for bringing to light misconduct or corruption within the employing public institution.

"The 5-4 decision essentially says that government employees can be fired or demoted if they reveal information about wrongdoing to their co-workers, to management or possibly to government investigators.

This decision sends a terrible message and could be deeply damaging to efforts to fight fraud, abuse and corruption.

Almost half of all fraud, detection in government agencies is estimated to come from tips, very often received through whistleblowers.

My office, which is charged, among other things, with rooting out fraud, and waste in the Los Angeles city government, routinely receives credible whistleblower information from city employees.

In the last five years we have conducted more than 100 audits and investigations, and I can tell you that if we had not offered protection and anonymity to whistleblowers, the results would have been less than fruitful.

Let there be no doubt.

If employees are no longer protected by the First Amendment when they speak out then precious sources of information will wither away. " - Laura Chick, Los Angeles city controller.

Laura Chick helped the United States attorney to successfully prosecute the public relations giant Fleishman-Hillard, with the help of employees of the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, for fraudlent over billing for several million dollars.

"The US Supreme Court decision to deny whistleblower protection to public employees continues what many of us already know.

As the salaries of top government bureaucrats rise faster than the price of gasoline, job protection and career advancement become top priority.

Nonelected bureaucrats surround themselves with "yes men" loyal only to the boss, often at the expense of the very people their office is meant to serve.

Intelligent employees learn that submitting ideas, comments or criticisms up the chain of command is futile at best and career suicide at worst.

The result? Government gets bigger, slower, less productive and more costly.

The State Legislature should restore the whistleblower protection that the Supreme Court took away by a 5-4 vote.

While shooting the messenger may protect the bureaucrat, it does not protect the public." - Daniel J. Schmidt

The author feels that the faλsification of reaλity outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern pr☠paganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reaλity on the human race. Religi☯us int☯lerance ☯ccurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religi☸us beliefs or persons due to their religi⚛us ide⚛l⚛gy. This web site marks the founding of a system of philºsºphy nªmed The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a ra☨ional gnos☨ic mys☨ery re☦igion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a pers∞nal relati∞n with Æ∞n through the pursuit of the knowλedge of reaλity in the hope of curing the spiritual c✡rrupti✡n that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Mŷsterŷ of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Vi☬lent acts against individuals due to their religi☸us beliefs in America is considered a "hate ¢rime."

This web site in no way c☬nd☬nes vi☬lence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartels desire to c✡ntr✡l the human race. The internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartel already controls the world central banking system, mass media worldwide, the global indus✈rial mili✈ary en✈er✈ainmen✈ complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the eg● w●rship and the destruction of gl☭bal ec☭systems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation with bi☣hazards at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the p☠pulace in general through mass media by press☟ng em☠ti☠nal butt☠ns which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass media psych☣l☣gical ☣perati☣ns. The results have been the destruction of the fami♙y and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt internati☭nal elites vision of a perfect world. Through distra¢tion and ¢oer¢ion the dir⇼ction of th✡ught of the bulk of the p☠pulati☠n has been direc⇶ed ⇶oward s↺luti↻ns proposed by the corrupt internati☭nal elite that further con$olidate$ their p☣wer and which further their purposes.
