"...Connecticut Superior Court Judge Barbara Bellis ruled on Friday that plaintiffs in a defamation lawsuit against Jones, alleging a "campaign of harassment" following the Sandy Hook school shooting, could access the financial records of Jones and Infowars, the unaccountably popular multimedia platform from which he proliferates his nonsense – including the theory that Sandy Hook was a "false flag" hoax designed to gin up support for stricter gun laws. (Note that 20 children under the age of 7, along with seven adults and the shooter, died in the 2012 massacre.) The ruling could give the plaintiffs – relatives of children and adults killed in the massacre and an FBI agent who responded to the shooting – access to the internal communications and marketing strategies at Infowars, a step the plaintiffs' lawyers described as necessary to understand the planning and coordination that went into perpetuating the Sandy Hook conspiracy theory..."

"...But the second attack, which killed 17-year-old Mason, a student at East Austin College Prep and member of the Austin Youth Orchestra poised for a successful musical career, was followed within hours by an explosion in Montopolis that grievously wounded 75-year-old Esperanza Herrera. At that point, during South by Southwest, the shaken city knew a serial killer was loose in its midst; an army of FBI and ATF agents came to assist then-Interim Austin Police Chief Brian Manley in the investigation..."
"...Forensic magazine reported in October on six contamination "incidents" at the lab, and the Texas Forensic Science Commission (which audited APD's lab prior to its shutdown) has, since July, been reviewing the lab's operations. Forensic notes that APD notified TFSC of the contamination issues after being alerted by the Kentucky State Police, which is helping APD upload test results into CODIS, the FBI's national DNA database (a 2011 Texas law authored by then-Sen..."

"...Nevertheless, Sarandon’s performance as Helen is a model of stoic rectitude. When the FBI and the CIA warn her that any attempt on her part to negotiate with Andy’s kidnappers will result not only in her arrest but also in the arrests of anyone else involved, family, friend, or otherwise, she persists through gritted teeth and furrowed brow with an assist from the wealthy Charlotte (Falco), who’s already been here, done this...."

"...Granted, Wershe Jr. was holding numerous kilos intended for resale when he was apprehended, but he was also working as an FBI informant infiltrating Detroit’s black drug culture, and the same federal agents who masterminded this crooked scheme failed to come to the teen’s defense when it came time for his trial and sentencing..."

"...Years after a violent terrorist attack led to his retirement from the FBI, Will Sawyer (Johnson) finally has a chance to get his struggling security company off the ground. All Sawyer needs to do is fly to Hong Kong and perform a risk assessment of the tallest building in the world, a superstructure that contains living quarters and offices hundreds of stories above the ground..."
"...But they’re not the only people with agendas: high-level fence Sonny Burch (Goggins, as irrepressibly sleazy as ever) wants all that delicious tech, and the mysterious Ghost (John-Kamen), who can slip between realities, is after the lost van Dyne for her own nefarious reasons. Meanwhile, Lang’s biggest concern is making sure that FBI agent Jimmy Woo (Park) doesn’t know he’s breaking curfew and turning back to his micro adventuring ways...."
"...The unexpected sequel to 2015's surprise hit Sicario makes the polar opposite decision to that made by FBI Agent Kate Macer (Emily Blunt). At the end of the first film, she decided she could no longer walk the same dark path as CIA operative Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) and freelance agent of mayhem Alejandro Gillick (Benicio del Toro), who now become the focus of the next two films..."

After the FBI and the Joint Terrorism Task Force decimated the alliance between the John Brown Anti-Klan Committee and the BCTF, Dorothy and I were left to continue the struggle without many of our comrades. I learned so much from her..."
"...Layton cast four rising stars as the real-life crooks: Burnout jock Warren Lipka (Evan Peters), future entrepreneur Chas Allen (Blake Jenner), art school kid Spencer Reinhard (Barry Keoghan), and, most unlikely of all, aspiring FBI agent Eric Borsuk (Jared Abrahamson). However, his twist was to cast the real Lipka, Allen, Reinhard, and Borsuk as themselves, playing Greek chorus on the truth (or otherwise) of what was being shown on-screen, and what each other claimed happen..."
"...In this stupefyingly inane buddy-cop comedy featuring a cast of talking canines, a macho NYPD rottweiler named Max goes undercover to compete in a prestigious Las Vegas dog show as part of an assignment to bust up an international animal smuggling ring that’s stolen a precious baby panda to be sold on the black market. Tagging along on a short leash is his initially resistant human partner Frank (Arnett), an oddly tanned FBI agent who eventually becomes the Turner to Max’s Hooch as the two bond to become a team..."
"...It's on page 342 of my dog-eared 1989 mass-market paperback, and unfolds at the hour-and-40-minute mark in the film: a moment that was such a shock, a brilliant reveal in a novel that was so economical, yet so evocative, and (for better or worse) ignited a renaissance of our collective obsession with serial killers. FBI cadet Clarice Starling (Jodie Foster) rings the doorbell of a potential lead and descends into hell as she realizes she has stumbled into the lair of Buffalo Bill..."
"...Instead, it's straight out of the glut of post-Silence of the Lambs potboilers, like The Bone Collector, only even marginally redeemed by Tennant surpassing the discount-store Hannibal Lecter tag so easily applied to that subgenre’s antagonists. Boyce even tried to provide him with a Clarice Starling/Alex Cross (remember Kiss the Girls? Anyone? No?) in a dogged FBI agent (Heggins) who believes Sean when no one else will..."

"...Hulu's series The Looming Tower, based on Lawrence Wright's award-winning book, pokes at these ideas. It exposes our most prominent intelligence agencies, the CIA and FBI, as so preoccupied with their vicious rivalry and the personal problems of the people running them that the nation's security at the most critical time in history was back-burner..."
"...Should it be released, we'll listen to it roughly 30 minutes after they get it and post their story online.) City attorneys have appealed those requests to the state's attorney general, citing the ongoing investigation into the bombings and Conditt's conduct. But at a joint press conference Monday concerning the redacted release of a federal probable cause affidavit written to get Conditt under arrest, FBI Special Agent Chris Combs cited concerns his agency may have with any eventual release...."
"...Then you have Forcade – the Yippie who publicly antagonized Abbie Hoffman, and made headlines for hurling a cream pie in the face of a pornography commissioner – amping the already paranoia-and-chaos infected atmosphere, his inferences that the FBI were trailing the tour prevailing to the present. The telephone game ultimately resulted in Sex Pistols singer John Lydon's recent memoir Anger Is an Energy asserting High Times was a front for the CIA...."
"...Dear Editor, Both structural and individual racism and white supremacy explains why the Austin Police Department did not initially suspect a racist white American male engaged in domestic terrorism when the first bombs killed three Black and Brown people. Instead, Austin Police first engaged in a “blame-the-victim” assault suggesting that one of the Black victims was actually making a bomb when it accidentally exploded. Then when the Latina was killed, the White Supremacist Austin Police suspected a drug cartel. Come on. Now that the domestic terrorist is revealed to be a racist, Christian home-schooled, young white male – a self-described psychopath – who opposed abortion and homosexuality yet thought it a good idea to get rid of the sex offender registry (?!) AND who was associated with survivalists, one must wonder: Will the Austin Police Department update its suspect profiling criteria and methodology as well as assisting the FBI and other law enforcement in doing the same thing? Had the APD not been paralyzed from the outset by structural and individual racism and white supremacy, it is AT LEAST CONCEIVABLE the domestic terrorist, Mark Conditt, could have been identified and apprehended earlier – than, say, if the PD was looking for drug cartels or something – thus eliminating weeks of outright terror inflicted on Austin through police white supremacy, incompetence, and outright stupidity. And need it be asked, had the bombs had gone off in West Austin or Northwest Hills, whether the APD response would have been vastly different and immediate? Structural White Supremacy in the Austin and other law enforcement agencies needs to be smashed into a thousand pieces the way President John F..."

"...First, he assembled a crackerjack team of actors: Evan Peters as the wild-minded Warren Lipka; Barry Keoghan as Spencer Reinhard, the dreaming artist who has romanticized the idea of the suffering artist; Blake Jenner as entrepreneurial Chas Allen, who seems way too smart to be engaged in this stupidity (and he knows it); and Jared Abrahamson as Eric Borsuk, the bored future FBI agent who falls easily over to the wrong side of the law...."

"...Mann shortly thereafter fell victim to a similarly charged threat on her Facebook page, where she'd posted a picture of the sign and noose. A commenter identified as "John Clark" wrote: "The only problem I see with this is she's not at the end of it," accused her of "using black people to further her communist liberal hate," and suggested that "there's nothing a little rope won't fix." Mann reported the comments to the FBI and WCSO..."

"...However, Grassroots claims WCSO admitted in a phone conversation last Friday that they did not pursue any investigation. Meanwhile, ICE (which contracts with CoreCivic to run Hutto) said the federal agency, with the assistance of WCSO, found the allegations made by Monterrosa "unsubstantiated," concluding the information she provided could "not be corroborated" and that the case "lacked evidence to pursue any further action." Responding to a Chronicle follow-up, ICE's regional spokesperson emailed back two words: "Contact FBI." In a turn of events, the Federal Bureau of Investigation's San Antonio field office, Austin Resident Agency Office, and the Civil Rights Division have now taken over the case as a civil rights investigation..."

"...That said, Mark Felt should be a riveting historical parallel, or at the very least an alt-right-universe lesson on how not to screw up an already jittery nation. Against all odds, unfortunately, director Landesman’s portrait of FBI Deputy Director Mark Felt (Neeson, well cast), who would eventually reveal that he was the legendary informant – aka “Deep Throat” – leading to the downfall of Nixon’s cryptofascist administration, is its own worst enemy..."

Ben (Greene), the local authority, begins the investigation, but homicides on the reservation are federal affairs, so the FBI sends in Jane Banner (Olsen), an effective but green agent..."
