Chino, CA - Friends of the Border Patrol has released a report uncovering corruption and security compromises within the government titled "Unjustifiable and Impeachable: The FOBP Report on DHS, DOJ, and the Courts. Andy Ramirez has authored this report with a section featuring 50 Exhibits documenting compromises, corruption and unconscionable incidents that go back 15 years in some cases. (H/T to BorderfireReport ) (see referenced links at end of page or HERE)
The report contains two volumes, with Volume I authored by Andy Ramirez, and Volume II written by Attorney John Cavicchi, which primarily addresses the court system.
A highly experienced team of legal counsel and retired senior federal law enforcement agents has reviewed and cleared this report. As you will read in the Foreword, authored by Sandalio Gonzalez, retired Special Agent in Charge, Drug Enforcement Administration, this "must read" report reveals corruption the likes of which were unknown by many federal agents.
Section 1 discusses the Department of Homeland Security. You will learn how the White House sabotaged DHS internally during the creation of the department, and how Congress has failed to hold them accountable. Unqualified cronies were placed in control of agencies with critical responsibilities. Identified are a number of compromises in national security in key ports of entry and along America's borders, which have allowed narcotic and human traffickers to control the borders. Some incidents involving explosives and armaments improperly processed and cleared through our ports of entry are discussed. Our federal law enforcement officers have been obstructed by policies benefiting those being given unequal and unfair trade and economic advantages. These same senior executive service managers have received lavish rewards for advancing the Bush Administration's policies as stated in the release announcing award winners by the Office of Personnel Management.
Some exhibits identify a well-known sex ring operating within Customs and Border Protection. The Miami Herald reported a number of stories going back over 10 years and instead of thoroughly investigating and firing the participants, Commissioner Ray Kelly's idea of discipline was to merely transfer the individuals named. Today, these same managers now run the Office of Field Operations and serve in many key positions. The practice called "screw up move up" takes place by utilizing sexual favors with fellow employees to work up the chain of command, and also by violating policies and laws, an employee can screw up, not be charged or fired, and move up the chain of command at a later time. In fact, a CBP Customs Officer named one of the highest-ranking CBP officials in a suit filed in a Miami, Florida, which we present in full. This individual was previously named in the Miami Herald articles mentioned previously, and this unethical behavior is a practice that goes on to this day, as you will learn.
You will also learn how the agents protecting America have been stripped of protections that should guarantee due process. Instead, they face a deck stacked against them, with trumped up charges, and reprisals for reporting security compromises to Congress, covered up by bogus investigations by the Office of Special Counsel, Internal Affairs, and Inspector General to name a few.
Section 2 titled, The Justice Department: Corrupt, Overzealous, and Out of Control goes where Congress left off after their July 17 and July 31, 2007 hearings. Congress looked on the surface of the prosecutions of former Border Patrol Agents Ramos and Compean by U.S. Attorney Johnny Sutton. But that is where they started and stopped, the mere surface. The case was the lid to Pandora's Box and Congress failed to not only go further into the case, but they completely failed to examine a number of prosecutions by DOJ and Sutton. Such cases included the better-known cases against David Sipe, Stephanie Mohr, Robert Rhodes, Gilmer Hernandez, Gary Brugman, and the case against former FBI Special Agent in Charge Hardrick Crawford. In addressing those cases, it was clear-cut that these cases were influenced by foreign government insistence while our own government caved in to pressure. The Rhodes case is fully documented and names former DHS Secretary Tom Ridge as well as former Secretary of State Colin Powell as the leading administration figures who failed to follow due process.
Just as importantly, it asks questions about the prosecutions that everyone, including the Congress and media has failed to ask of DHS, DOJ, and the State Department. It shows Johnny Sutton to be nothing more than a lackey and a propagandist when you consider the very things he accuses his victims of, he has done or allowed to happen himself in the infamous "House of Death" murder case, which took place with the knowledge of the most senior administration officials. The playbook used by DOJ in their pattern of bad prosecutions against law enforcement officers is revealed fully.
Section 3 addresses the court system, and is really an introduction to Volume II by Mr. Cavicchi, which addresses how the courts have allowed suborning of perjury, falsification and/or suppression of evidence by the government, and how in fact they have failed to adjudicate and interpret the laws with impartiality. The courts have gone so far as to ignore Supreme Court rulings, and upheld sham discrimination and retaliation defenses on appeal as well as overzealous prosecutions. Their results show policy being upheld in these weak cases. Mr. Cavicchi addresses, after his statement, a plethora of evidence showing specifically what the courts have failed to address regardless of the inappropriate conduct and practices of the appellate and district courts and federal agencies. It is staggering to consider how far the concept of blind justice is from reality. Surely, this is not what the Framers and Thomas Jefferson had in mind, which you will see with statements of his that are included in the Cavicchi Report.
Our recommendations show a proactive, pragmatic approach of how to fix the problem, which the only way to do so is by appointment of a special prosecutor and an independent investigation. The agencies' own internal investigations have long resulted in cover-ups and promotions for their fellow cronies. As our report demonstrates, they cannot be trusted to police themselves and for some unknown reason, Congress does not seem to want to do it for them. However, with the new Obama Administration now being put together here is Change # 1. Fix the problems we've identified first. We the people have a right to know who is compromised and the right to object to cronies. Keep your promise of change and new blood. We call on the Senate to put an end to the automatic passes for nominated appointees. They must be heavily scrutinized after the last eight years of the Bush Administration's taking advantage of the blank check so we never again see the type of incompetence and internal corruption we've seen.
Our appreciation to those law enforcement officers, primarily whistleblowers, who continue to abide by their oaths to defend and protect the Constitution, and our citizens, and to our Veterans being honored today for their sacrifices given during each war. To read our The report contains two volumes, with Volume I authored by Andy Ramirez, and Volume II written by Attorney John Cavicchi, which primarily addresses the court system.
