COINTELPRO, HR 1955 Promotion or Fear Mongering? A Ricin Man Update

By Cheri Roberts-Piper MTR News

A couple of weeks ago I wrote a story involving the timeline of the Ricin discovery in a Las Vegas hotel room pointing out all the discrepancies I found in the reporting that had been done on the case. Yesterday a follow up story was released by the Associated Press and featured on Yahoo’s front page as a headline.

The update continues to confuse with its vague language and further muddies the timeline and information reported in the original stories.

When the original story broke we were told the victim who may or may not be responsible for his own exposure to the Ricin was in a coma in a Las Vegas hospital. Yesterday’s updated story however states that the victim’s family members said the victim – 57 year old Roger Bergendorff, was sedated on Feb 23rd – this is before the story broke in the media.

Was Bergendorff just sedated all this time? Why was he so heavily sedated that authorities and the press reported he was in a coma? And why are the authorities only now able to speak with him if he was indeed only sedated?

In a case involving a substance on the list of potential WMD’s that could be used against America what was the hold up on gathering information? We already know by previous accounts that authorities botched the initial investigation by tainting the crime scene, but to not question a victim or potential suspect because he is merely heavily sedated makes little sense.

Additionally the update mentions that “several” vials of Ricin were found. The previous stories all stated there were only two vials of the substance found – two vials that were found by a family member AFTER authorities had supposedly thoroughly searched the hotel room. How many vials of Ricin were really found in the hotel room? Were they all found by the family member? Where more vials found on a different day? Is the family member who found the Ricin a person of interest? Inquiring minds want to know.

But wait, there’s more. The original story stated an anarchist textbook was … LINK


Chilling Thoughts Amid Questionable Circumstances

By Cheri Roberts-Piper MTR News

A few days ago authorities found and positively identified the deadly poison Ricin in a Las Vegas hotel room. A man lies silently in a coma in some desert hospital unable to tell anyone how he became ill. He is said to have been at the hospital since Valentines Day when he called an ambulance due to respiratory distress.

With an unconscience witness/victim/homegrown terrorist the police were able to find evidence in the hotel room that is too convenient to be true. Let’s look at the timeline of the story first, because it makes no sense, but is told in the style of Rumsfeld so that it isn’t immediately apparent it makes no sense.

Authorities say that on Sat Feb 22 a friend or relative of the rooms occupant reported to the hotel that there are pets left in the sick mans room.

So first off we are to believe that pets had been left unattended and unnoticed in the room for 10 whole days! One of the animals, a dog was found dead. How long had the dog been dead? How many more animals were in the room and what kind were they? How did they survive unheard all that time? A hungry animal would be howling and whining. Surely in a hotel that would have been heard by someone.

Then we are told that on Tues. Feb 26 the hotel’s management notified police they found “weapons” in the room.

Tuesday? If the friend reported the animals Fri the 23rd why is it the “weapons” were not discovered until five days later? A Las Vegas hotel room left untouched over a weekend let alone for 5 whole days? A room whose occupant lay dying in a hospital due to Ricin poison. People in and out of the room to take the dead dog out, to remove the other unknown number of animals and to clean.

Call me a conspiracy theorist, but according to Capt. Joseph Lombardo

“Firearms and an anarchist type textbook” were found in the room.

He said at a news conference late Friday Feb 29 that the book was marked where there was information about Ricin. However test results on those items were negative for the substance.

Police also said they “found castor beans possibly used to make the substance (Ricin)”.

An “anarchist type textbook”? What the hell is that? Can someone say “HR1955”?

“Firearms”? Ok, that could be believable enough, but castor beans?

Then on Thurs. Feb 28 the friend goes back to the hotel room to retrieve the sick mans belongings where he finds two vials of a “substance” that tests positive for Ricin. Authorities don’t know if they missed finding the vials when they searched the room two days before or even how long the vials had been in the room. They do not know if the man in the coma has any connection to the Ricin, but they know that Ricin is what has made him ill.

So now we have police allowing a man they can only identify as…

Creative Activism, Alternative Ways to Spread the Truth

By, Cheri Roberts-Piper, MTR News

It’s time to get out of that activism rut you and your fellow activists have put yourselves into! There are more ways to spread Truth then standing on street corners with a bullhorn. There are many things you can do in your every day life that gets the word out in easy and potentially effective ways.

Here are just a few ways to shake things up…

Deception Dollars
I take Deception Dollars with me everywhere I go. If you crumble a Deception Dollar up and leave them in grocery stores, on shelves, at gas stations between isles, on the ground, in the park, etc. people will slyly pick them up. You can watch people pick these up and quietly pocket what they think is real money. Cool thing is all those Truth websites – chock full of information is now in their hands. Another thing I use Deception Dollars for is to toss them into open vehicle windows in parking lots. I never touch the vehicle inside or out. I merely drop them through open windows. If you have teenagers with even a tiny bit of activism in their blood, give them a stack of Deception Dollars to take to school. Their friends will think they are cool and ask for them. Deception Dollars are versatile in use because they look so real to an unassuming eye.

Pre-paid Return Envelopes
We all get these with nearly every credit card offer and utility bill etc. The ones you tend to throw away can be used instead for a great cause! How? Simply insert some Truth flyer into the pre-paid envelope, lick it and send it back to the company. Real people open those envelopes. Ask your friends and family members to save their return envelopes for you as well.

Prayer Requests
Submit a prayer request at your place of worship (whether a church, synagogue, temple, mosque, etc).
Please pray for: 9/11 Truth
Comments: Please see for more information (or whatever website you feel appropriate)

9/11 Post Cards
Stick these inside magazines in the… more here

Truthers seek more than the just the truth of the Sept. 11th crimes, we seek truth in all the crimes of this Administration – and the administrations before it, so that we may, as a country, protect ourselves from the crimes of future administrations before it is too late. It is already to late for many as American lives have been lost by the thousands and we will never know the true number of innocents we have killed ‘over there’. They are still dying…over there…and they are still dying here.

Truthers believe Americans need to connect the dots. Not just some of the dots but connect all of the dots. From the rapidly receding economy to the ugly truths of the Iraq war; from the premeditated outing of Valerie Plame to criminally fraudulent elections; from a growing 9/11 movement asking hard questions to the deafening slap of media silence. The list goes on.

There have been eye-opening revelations with their implications from Whistleblowers Sibel Edmonds, Coleen Rowley, Russ Tice and Kevin Ryan. Why does our government and media wish to silence them? Why do they wish to silence us? With laws and legislation in place – like the Patriot Act, HR 1955, and domestic spying it is hard to come to any conclusion but that of our government’s wish to silence and control it’s population. That’s freaky stuff.

We don’t see these things as separate issues. These problems are pieces of the whole. To a 9/11 Truther all these current crises root in the events of September 11th, 2001. If you do the maze backward, i.e. take the problem as it is now and work your way back to when it really began, you will always land in the footprint of that day.

For instance the flailing economy. Immediately on 9/11 millions of dollars were being lost in advertising revenue alone. Advertisers pulled their ads out of respect for the gravity of what occurred and also as to not have their service/product branded in such sorrow. Those dollars didn’t return in abundance any time soon. It took years to get back on track. That alone affected many of lives and the businesses of those they did business with. And that’s just one tiny category of the trickle down financial collapses that have brought us to where we are. I know it’s much bigger than that. It’s just an example.

Ok so that’s the economy, what else? What about the CIA leak? We are only now hearing mention of Brewster Jennings in Sibel Edmonds’ story out of the UK, but before all that VP Dick Cheney and his team maliciously leaked the identity of covert Agent Valerie Plame. They leaked her name because they needed to control Valerie’s husband Joe Wilson, who emphatically denied the Bush administration claim of Iraq buying yellowcake from Niger. Why did they lie and use forged documents about Niger? They lied because with those forged documents they could terrify a country by alluding to an impending mushroom cloud delivered to us from Iraq. But, why did they need to lie about Iraq? They needed to lie further because the American people were struggling with the idea of a link between Usama bin Laden and Sadam Hussein. The American people felt justified going to war with Afghanistan because they were worked up with a fervor bent on an eye for an eye, they were raw and still bleeding. The Taliban was the enemy. The powers that be needed that extra ace to push a nation over the edge, they needed George Tenet’s proclaimed “Slam dunk”.

I can walk you through each one forward or backward, but I think you get it.

The 9/11 Truth movement is made up of an intelligent and diverse group of everyday people many of which you probably interact with unknowingly each day. Being a Truther simply means we have questions about the official conspiracy theory. You don’t have to believe 9/11 was an inside job to be a Truther. Polls reflect a country with questions about what really happened on Sept. 11th, 2001. It’s ok to ask questions. IF you want to know what happened on 9/11, you’re a Truther by default. Just accept it.
