Jessica Heeringa went missing from her job at the Exxon Mobil gas station, 1196 E. Sternberg Road, Norton Shores MI near Interstate 96, late Friday night, see map CLICK HERE.  Norton Shores Police were called to the gas station, located just east of U.S. 31 near the Lakes Mall which leads to nearby Interstate 96, at about 11:15 p.m. Friday when a customer entered the store and found nobody present.

ABC News... The disappearance of a Michigan mother who was last seen working the late shift at a gas station was reclassified today as an abduction, as the woman's family pleaded for her safe return. Jessica Heeringa, 25, made her last sale at the Exxon gas station in Norton Shores, Mich., at 11 p.m. Friday, police said. She was preparing to close the store for the night, but 15 minutes later authorities said they received a call from a concerned customer reporting that there was no employee at the open gas station. "She was going to get out in 15 minutes," Shelly Heeringa, Jessica's mother, told ABC News. "In 15 minutes that store would've been closed and she would've been on her way home."



Norton Shores Police Chief Daniel Shaw said today that it appeared robbery was not a motive, and that the store's cash drawer was left untouched. Shaw said authorities are looking for a silver minivan, possible a Chrysler Town and Country, that was seen in the area prior to Jessica's disappearance. Shelly Heeringa said someone saw her daughter "walk out of the store with this guy like there was no problem," but when they got to his van, a struggle ensued.

FBI Needs To Investigate Unsolved Murder and Lynching of Claude Neal by KKK in Marianna Fl For Links to Dozier School For Boys.



FBI Needs To Investigate Unsolved Murder and Lynching of Claude Neal by KKK in Marianna Fl For Links to Dozier School For Boys. Were the prison guards at the Dozier School for Boys and the Marianna Police Chief  in on the murder and lynching of Claude Neal in KKK held Marianna Fl, were they KKK. How did the KKK know that Claude Neal was being held for his 'own protection' in a Brewton Alabama jail 140 miles away from Marianna Fl, see map click here. Was the body of the murdered black male Claude Neal buried in 'Boot Hill' on the grounds of the Dozier School for Boys?  It has been told to me by a distant relative of the murdered black male Claude Neal that he had been at one time an inmate at the Dozier School for Boys. The Florida School for Boys, also known as the Arthur G. Dozier School for Boys (AGDS), was a reform school operated by the state of Florida in the panhandle town of Marianna from January 1, 1900, to June 30, 2011.



Between 1865 and 1965 over 2400 African Americans were lynched in the United States. In Florida, when two black men attempted to vote in November 1920 in Ocoee, Orange County, the Klan attacked the black community. In the ensuing violence, six black residents and two whites were killed, and twenty five black homes, two churches, and a fraternal lodge were destroyed. During the Depression, the Klan continued to wither away — except in Florida, which had an estimated 30,000 members. Jacksonville, Miami, Orlando, and Tampa were the most powerful klaverns.
 

 
The nature of Klan influence in Florida communities, showing how it joined forces with politicians, religious institutions, and especially police departments, giving its crusades for “law and order” credibility. Even after its heyday of the 1920s, Klansmen in many communities continued to serve as poll watchers in contested elections, state investigators into racial crimes, key contributors and supporters of important politicians, and especially as regular and deputized members of police forces. As late as 1952, a Grand Dragon (state president) spoke to the Florida Sheriff’s Association where he received applause for condemning an assassinated civil rights worker as a troublemaker.







KKK activism increased as a reaction against the civil rights movement in the 1950s and 1960s. Among the more notorious murders by Klan members in Florida is the torture and lynching of Claude Neal in Marianna Fl, they even promoted his murder in the local newspapers; ACTUAL NEWSPAPER NOTICE..NEGRO LYNCHING..Macon (Georgia) Telegraph, and in the Marianna Daily Times-Courier October 26, 1934.Big Preparation Made for Lynching Tonight“.GREENWOOD, Fla., Oct. 26—Local citizens have been preparing all day for the lynching of a negro scheduled to take place here tonight. This morning a mob seized Claude Neal, 23, from a jail in Brewton, Ala., where he had been held in connection with the murder of white girl which took place here several days ago. At noon a “Committee of Six” representing the mob announced a timetable for the lynching which was given in newspapers and over the radio.


At sundown the negro will be taken to the farm two miles from here where Miss Lola Cannidy, the murder victim, lived. There he will be mutilated by the girl’s father. Then he will be brought to a pig-pen in the middle of a cotton field nearby, where the girl’s body was found, and killed.Finally his body will be brought to Marianna, the county seat, nine miles from here, and hung in the court house square for all to see. The negro is presently being held at an undisclosed location in a swamp along the Chattahoochee River, not far from the Cannidy farm. “All white folks are invited to the party,” said the announcement issued by the mob’s Committee of Six. (See notation of the “timetable” published in the Marianna Daily Times-Courier, before the murder of Claude Neal) As a result, thousands of citizens have been congregating all afternoon at the Cannidy farm. Bonfires have been started, piles of sharp sticks have prepared (FOR THE CHILDREN), knives have been sharpened and one woman has displayed a curry-comb with which she promises to torture the negro.



Claude Neal’s body was hung to a tree on the northeast corner of the Marianna Fl Courthouse square and left hanging for over 24 hours, how’s that for some good ole boy Marianna Fl history.  While the Marianna Fl, (Claude Neal), lynching may have been the last “spectacle” lynching in the nation, many other lynchings of a less publicized nature would follow. In fact, Marianna would be the site of another lynching less than 10 years later. Neal’s lynching was followed by a race riot in the town of Marianna in which white rioters attempted to drive all blacks out of the city. What do you think was happening to the black boys for years at the Dozier School For Boys Concentration Camp in KKK held Marianna Fl, FBI needs to investigate.

Boston Marathon Bombers Used Remote Control Toy Car Wiring to Detonate Backpack Bombs Same Device Qaeda Terrorist Ahmed Mohamed Invented in Tampa And Put on Youtube.



Components of a toy DuraTrax radio-controlled car were used to construct the bombs that exploded at the Boston Marathon, according to four local hobby store owners and managers interviewed by the agents, ABC News reported.  Store owners in Massachusetts and across the border in New Hampshire told ABC News federal agents questioned them about sales of a 1.25 volt Tenergy battery used in remote and radio-controlled cars, the same kind of battery seen in evidence photos. Greg Faith, owner of Inside Out Hobbies in New Hampshire, told ABC that when he saw the evidence pictures on television, he immediately recognized the batteries and other parts used in radio-controlled cars.

Carnage: medical workers aid injured people at the finish line of the 2013 Boston marathon
"It was a remote control for toy cars," US Representative Dutch Ruppersberger, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, told reporters after officials from the Department of Homeland Security, FBI and National Center for Counter terrorism briefed the committee. "Which says to me, and brother number two has said, they got the information on how to build the bomb from Inspire magazine."  Also from information posted on Youtube by Tampa terrorist Ahmed Mohamed who uploaded a 12-minute video in 2007 showing how to take apart a remote-control toy car and reassemble the wiring to make it into a remote detonation device.  Modified firecrackers were found in the trunk of Tampa's Ahmed Mohamd's car, same deal as in Boston, the T' brothers copied Mohamed's blueprint for a bomb with toy car control trigger with firecrackers.



Officials and Fox News do not have a clue about Tampa al-Qaeda operative Ahmed Mohamed, his photo, and his invention of the remote-control toy parts as a detonation mechanism for a bomb. Ahmed Mohamed put his instructions about how to construct the remote-control toy parts as a detonation mechanism for a bomb on YouTube in July 2007. Samir Khan in Charlotte NC picked up on it and posted it to his websites and also in Jihad chat rooms around the world. Samir Khan was an al-Qaeda operative and was killed with al-Qaeda terror cleric Anwar al-Awlaki September 2011 in Yemen by a Hellfire missile in a joint CIA and DOD operation.
 
 
"FOX NEWS....Boston Marathon pressure cooker bombs inconsistent with Al Qaeda web instructions (hell no)..........the use of remote-control toy parts as a detonation mechanism is not found in the Al Qaeda online magazine Inspire, which was cited in early reports as the suspects' likely bomb-making guide. "This was not something that we believe that on their own that they came up with, that design was on their own," he said. "That's why those six months in Russia becomes so important. And other persons of interest that I know investigators would like to talk to becomes very, very important here."  Read more: http://www.foxnews.com/us/2013/04/26/remote-controlled-devices-not-cell-phones-used-to-detonate-boston-bombs-source/#ixzz2Rfb1I7DL
 



Inspire was created by the American-Yemeni preacher Anwar al-Awlaki, a leader of al Qaeda's affiliate in Yemen who was killed in a US drone strike with boy toy Samir Khan.  Mr Ruppersberger said the article on bomb-building in Inspire was headlined: "How to build a bomb in your mom's kitchen."  The devices were not sophisticated and had to be triggered within a few blocks of the explosives, officials told US media.  Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, was killed in a shootout with police. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, lies wounded in a Boston hospital and has been providing some information to authorities.
 

TAMPA - When a South Carolina police officer pulled over two Egyptian engineering students for speeding last month, he noticed one trying to put away a laptop computer. That computer contained a 12-minute video showing how to take apart a remote-control toy car and reassemble the wiring to make it into a remote detonation device, a federal prosecutor said.


The video’s narrator, a graduate student at the University of South Florida, said the device helped “to save one who wants to be a martyr for another battle,” the prosecutor said. Youssef Megahed and Ahmed Mohamed were indicted Aug. 31 2007 in Tampa and charged with illegally transporting explosive materials. Mohamed also is charged with teaching and demonstrating how to make an explosive device. The video was uploaded onto YouTube, but later removed by the Web site.

BRACHFELD LAW GROUP…THE WORST OF THE WORST…LA TIMES 8/20/2012...Aggressive debt collection tactics are drawing federal scrutiny.Federal regulators and state lawmakers are taking action against aggressive tactics by debt collectors that have been aided by outdated laws and lax oversight. The Brachfeld law practice files several thousand debt-collection lawsuits a month. Consumer lawyers said the firm often files suits with little documentation.”They stand out to me as among the worst of the worst,” said Aidan Butler, a Los Angeles consumer attorney.
August 20, 2012|By Jim Puzzanghera, Los Angeles Times…
 
WASHINGTON — Hard economic times have helped push millions of Americans deeply into debt, plunging many into a dark world filled with relentless collection agents, aggressive lawyers and companies that profit mightily if they can get people to pay up. Aided by outdated laws and lax oversight, debt collection has become a $12-billion-a-year business as people increasingly have fallen behind on their bills for credit cards, student loans, hospital stays and other expenses.
Federal regulators, along with lawmakers in California and several other states, are starting to take action against debt collection firms over aggressive tactics that authorities said are becoming rampant. Those tactics include intimidating phone calls, unfounded threats of arrest, harassment of relatives and neighbors and a flood of lawsuits aimed at squeezing money for unpaid bills from paychecks or home equity — recovering $55 billion in debts in 2010. Southern California is home to two of the debt-collection industry’s major players — ones that consumer advocates alleged have been at the forefront of improper behavior. Encore Capital Group Inc.of San Diego, which buys unpaid bills from businesses, has faced numerous lawsuits filed by state attorneys general and private lawyers, alleging it used false and faulty affidavits, much the way banks allegedly used robo-signing in filing foreclosure documents.

Brachfeld Law Group in El Segundo, one of the nation’s largest debt collection law firms, has been contending with allegations that it failed to investigate the facts adequately when it pursued some debts. A spokesman said the firm checks to ensure accuracy. In one case, though, Brachfeld allegedly helped pursue the wrong person for a debt he never owed. Several years ago, debt collectors began pursuing state Sen. Lou Correa (D-Santa Ana) for an unpaid Sears bill they said he owed. He told them they had the wrong man, but the debt collectors never wavered. “These folks are very aggressive,” Correa said. “They’ll call back repeatedly and say, ‘Tell us some personal information so we can tell it’s not you.’ When all of a sudden is the burden of proof on me?” Last year, Correa discovered his Senate paycheck was being garnisheed because of a $4,329 lien for the Sears debt. Brachfeld had obtained a default judgment in court, even though, Correa said, the lawsuit was never served on him and he knew nothing of the claim or the court hearing. He later learned that the debt belonged to a Luis Correa from Santa Ana. The man had a different Social Security number, different address, even different first name — the senator is legally Jose Luis Correa.
 
The Brachfeld law practice files several thousand debt-collection lawsuits a month. Consumer lawyers said the firm often files suits with little documentation.”They stand out to me as among the worst of the worst,” said Aidan Butler, a Los Angeles consumer attorney. In 2009, Butler won a $12,000 judgment from Brachfeld in Los Angeles County Superior Court for a consumer who had been sued by the firm to collect a $16,000 Capital One debt. Butler had alleged that Brachfeld violated debt collection laws by, among other actions, making harassing phone calls and failing to validate the debt. Butler said he has defended about a dozen clients against suits filed by Brachfeld and each time the suit was dismissed. In Alameda County, two consumers filed a class-action suit in 2010 against the Brachfeld firm and Encore subsidiaries, accusing them of illegally sending repayment letters and pursuing collection lawsuits without conducting reasonable investigations of the debt, with little involvement by lawyers and with the use of false affidavits. The suit is pending. Gottlieb said he had no knowledge of the suit. jim.puzzanghera@latimes.com

Shut Down The Slick Al Qaeda Online Magazine 'Inspire' That Aims to Train a Generation of Killers Like Boston Marathon Bomber Brothers.




Don' t tell me that you can't shut down Al-Qaeda websites that promote terror training on the web, like the 'Inspire Magazine', I've been doing it for years!

NBC NEWS....Inspire, It is as slickly designed as any magazine you would find at the supermarket checkout line, or in the seat pocket in front of you on an airplane. It even has snappy cover headlines — teasing articles like “Make a Bomb in the Kitchen of Your Mom.”  And now Inspire, the recruitment magazine of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, probably has its next cover story: It allegedly helped inspire the two brothers accused of bombing the Boston Marathon.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the hospitalized suspect in the marathon attack, has told federal investigators that the brothers got information on building bombs from Inspire, law enforcement officials told NBC News.  The magazine, which terrorism monitoring groups say was published for the first time in 2010, exists mostly as PDFs and obscure links passed around the Web. In the Internet era, shutting it down would be virtually impossible, terrorism experts say. (Bull Crap).

It is published in English and targeted at Western audiences, particularly young readers who might have inclinations toward terrorism.  One issue, published in the summer of 2010 by Samir Khan, illustrated just how closely Inspire copied the eye-catching design of American magazines. Articles about jihad are advertised in the same style that Western publications use for 30-minute recipes or sex advice.
 
The same 2010 issue included instructions on precisely how to use a kitchen pressure cooker, explosives and shrapnel to produce a bomb — the exact method of attack that authorities say the Tsarnaev brothers used in Boston. On the cover, the article was teased as being written by “The AQ Chef.” Inspire was the brainchild of Samir Khan (photo above), a young blogger and Photoshop whiz from Charlotte, N.C., who moved to Yemen in 2009 and leveraged his skills to help al Qaeda produce a magazine that could appeal to young would-be radicals.

He was killed in September 2011, at age 25, by an American drone strike in Yemen that also killed Anwar al-Awlaki, a prominent radical cleric (Terrorist). Since Khan’s death, terrorism analysts said, the magazine has taken on a less professional look.


Terrorist Samir Khan Speaks From the Grave With Al Qaeda Manual Offering Tips to Western Recruits.  Samir Khan was living in Charlotte NC when WBTV 3 News and I exposed his links to Al-Qaeda and the work he was doing for them online, see surveillance video at top of this post. I filed numerous complaints with the FBI about Samir Khan and his activity with Al-Qaeda while he was in Charlotte NC but no action was taken by the FBI, see Feb. 16th 2009 Samir Khan Complaint below.



Terrorist Samir Khan posted the following death threat while he was in Charlotte NC…In Sha’ Allah. The lying enemy of Allah, Bill Warner – may Allah destroy himclaimed that he was the one who shut down our blog. Let this be a testimony that this disbeliever is a liar”. “May Allah send a hurricane over his house so that he can be wiped out, humiliated. In addition, al-Thabaat forums are back up. Please visit the main page. We have dedicated a video to the return of the blog to strike fear in the heart of the Kuffaar Bill Warner“.  SEE YOUTUBE VIDEO CLICK HERE

DEA Investigation Leads to Patriot Act Designation Against Hizballah Financial Institutions and US Based (Tampa) Muslim Used Car Dealers.

DEA Press Release Tuesday April 23rd, 2013: DEA Investigations Lead to Treasury 311 Patriot Act Designation Against Hizballah-Backed Financial Institutions and the trade-based money laundering schemes involving used car dealerships in the United States (Tampa). THE CARS ARE THE CASH Y'ALL!

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of the Treasury today named two Lebanese exchange houses, Kassem Rmeiti & Co. For Exchange (Rmeiti Exchange) and Halawi Exchange Co. (Halawi Exchange), as foreign financial institutions of primary money laundering concern under Section 311 of the USA PATRIOT Act – the first time the Department has used Section 311 against a non-bank financial institution. Today’s action reflects the Treasury Department’s continuing commitment to target illicit financial networks that launder millions of dollars in funds for narcotics traffickers and that, in the process, provide substantial financial benefits to the terrorist organization Hizballah. This action will protect the U.S. financial system from these activities and expose entities supporting the network of designated drug kingpin Ayman Joumaa.
 
“Following Treasury’s action against the Lebanese Canadian Bank, the Joumaa narcotics network turned to Rmeiti Exchange and Halawi Exchange to handle its money laundering needs,” said Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence David S. Cohen. “As our actions against the Lebanese Canadian Bank, Joumaa and the two exchange houses today make clear, the Treasury Department, working with our partners across the Federal government, will aggressively expose and disrupt sophisticated multi-national money laundering organizations that handle drug proceeds for criminal enterprises including the terrorist group Hizballah.”
 
“Drugs and terrorism co-exist across the globe in a marriage of mutual convenience," said DEA Special Operations Division Special Agent in-Charge Derek Maltz. "As State-sponsored terrorism has declined, these dangerous organizations have looked far and wide for sources of revenue to recruit, corrupt, train, and strengthen their regime. Many drug trafficking groups have stepped in to fill that revenue void, as have the financial facilitators such as Halawi and Rmeity.” The Treasury Department’s 311 action against Lebanese Canadian Bank in February 2011, as well as designations in January 2011 of Ayman Joumaa and two exchange houses, Hassan Ayash Exchange and Elissa Exchange, exposed the Joumaa network’s money laundering scheme and forced these financial institutions out of the U.S. and international financial systems. 
 
December 11th, 2011…DEA Complaint Names 30 Muslim Used Car Dealers In the USA Who Laundered Millions in Drug Money For Hezbollah By Sending Cars to West Africa, See Tampa used car dealer on List.  Since March of 2004, I was aware of the “cars are the cash scam“ whereby used car dealers in the USA were buying vehicles with dirty money and sending the used cars to West Africa (Nigeria), Dubai UAE and Jeddah Saudi Arabia for resale.
 
Money laundering scheme includes a Tampa car business see video: Federal law enforcement officers with the Bureau of Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE), U.S. Secret Service and Federal Officers at the Port of Tampa, all started investigations into the “cars are the cash scam“, all were shut down by the FBI who took over the investigations when it appeared to be a support of terrorism case. The current “Civil Complaint” filed against the 30 Muslim used car dealers in the USA, charged with laundering money for the terrorist group Hezbollah, is a DEA Action as per DEA Special Agent Christopher Miller, not the FBI, the FBI always takes over any investigation when it is linked to terrorism, so what’s up? SEE VIDEO -TAMPA WFLA NEWS CHANNEL 8 REPORT WITH PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR BILL WARNER CLICK HERE Used cars were purchased at auction in the Tampa area with drug money supplied by the terrorist organization Hezbollah, see COMPLAINT CLICK HERE.




Rmeiti Exchange and Halawi Exchange subsequently picked up the network’s money laundering work, including the trade-based money laundering schemes involving used car dealerships in the United States and consumer goods from Asia. Rmeiti Exchange and Halawi Exchange used their foreign money transmitter businesses to process millions of dollars on behalf of narcotics traffickers and money launderers, and attempted to obfuscate the source of illicit funds by comingling or splitting transactions across a variety of businesses, financial institutions, and continents, including in the United States.


These actions would not have been possible without considerable support from the Drug Enforcement Administration, Customs and Border Protection, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the New Jersey State Police. Kassem Rmeiti and Co. For Exchange;  Rmeiti Exchange, its ownership, management, and associates facilitate extensive transactions for money launderers and drug traffickers. Between 2008 and March 2011, Rmeiti Exchange and its owner provided at least $25 million in payments to U.S.-based car dealers and exporters associated with the Joumaa narcotics and money laundering network. Some of these car dealers and exporters have been named in a civil money laundering and forfeiture action against the Lebanese Canadian Bank, drug kingpins Ayman Joumaa and Ali Mohamed Kharroubi, and Elissa Exchange and Hassan Ayash Exchange, brought by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York. 
 
Rmeiti Exchange and its management have also conducted financial activities for other money laundering and drug trafficking organizations operating in both Europe and Africa. Between March 2011 and October 2012, Rmeiti Exchange facilitated the movement of at least $1.7 million for Beninoise and Lebanese money launderers and drug traffickers. This included Rmeiti Exchange and Kassem Rmeiti taking on large cash deposits, collecting bulk cash currency, issuing cashier’s checks, and facilitating cross-border wire transfers on behalf of known and suspected money launderers, drug traffickers, and Hizballah affiliates.
As of December 2011, we believe that Hizballah had replaced U.S.-designated Elissa Exchange owner Ali Kharroubi with Haitham Rmeiti – the manager/owner of STE Rmeiti – as a key facilitator for wiring money and transferring Hizballah funds. Rmeiti Exchange, through its owner, Kassem Rmeiti, owns STE Rmeiti. Treasury believes that this activity demonstrates Hizballah’s efforts to adapt after U.S. Government disruptive actions, and illustrates the need for continued action against its financial facilitators. 
 
Halawi Exchange Co. (“Halawi Exchange”); Halawi Exchange represents a substantial threat to the U.S. and international financial systems, given its extensive illicit financial activity on behalf of a variety of international narcotics trafficking and money laundering networks. Halawi Exchange often employs deceptive practices to disguise this illicit financial activity to mislead U.S. and international banking institutions.  Halawi Exchange facilitates transactions for a network of individuals and companies which launder money through the purchase and sale of used cars in the United States for export to West Africa. In support of this network, management, ownership, and key employees of Halawi Exchange coordinate transactions – processed within and outside of Halawi Exchange – on behalf of Benin-based money launderers and their associates. 

For example, in early 2012, Halawi Exchange, including its management, ownership, and key employees were involved in arranging multiple wire transfers totaling over $4 million on behalf of one such money laundering network. As of mid-2012, central figures in this scheme planned to move $224 million worth of vehicle shipping contracts through this same network via a Halawi-owned Benin-based car lot, which receives vehicle shipments from the United States. 
As of late 2012, Benin-based money launderers continued to use Halawi Exchange to wire transfer money to U.S. car suppliers in support of their money laundering operations. The proceeds of car sales were hand-transported in the form of bulk cash U.S. dollars from Cotonou, Benin to Beirut, Lebanon via air travel and deposited directly into one of the Halawi Exchange offices, which allowed bulk cash deposits to be made without requiring documentation of where the money originated. 

Halawi Exchange, through its network of established international exchange houses, initiated wire transfers from its bank accounts to the United States without using the Lebanese banking system in order to avoid scrutiny associated with Treasury’s designations of Hassan Ayash Exchange, Elissa Exchange, and its Lebanese Canadian Bank Section 311 Action. Money was then wire transferred via Halawi’s banking relationships indirectly to the United States through countries that included China, Singapore, and the UAE, which were perceived to receive less scrutiny by the U.S. Government. Additionally, Halawi Exchange is known to have laundered profits from drug trafficking and cocaine-related money laundering networks for a leading Hizballah official and narcotics trafficker. Halawi Exchange has also been routinely used by other Hizballah associates as a means to transfer illicit funds.
