QUINTUS DIAS. Back in the 1990s, I worked as a reporter for Citizen’s News out of Squim, WA. I got on to a story that the Olympic National Park was reverting to a UN Biosphere. I checked it out and found a UN letterhead with the biosphere designation in the ranger’s office. Moreover, I found documents with European government designations, such a province, hectare, applied to American land divisions. It appeared that the US was reverting to a European type of a government structure. My editor almost fell out of her chair when I came back with the story and the docs.
We queried our Congressmen and never got a satisfactory reply… just BS that the park was unique and deserved the special biological designation to protect it from loggers and undue exploitation. However, a source suggested we check into the mysterious War Powers Act implemented by FDR and the American bankruptcy of 1933. We did find some information that the bankruptcy was legitimate, and the bankruptcy court was held in Amsterdam, Holland. Moreover, it was suggested that American lands were being securitized to pay off the national debt. The CORPORATE United States has been in receivership ever since 1933. In addition, in checking with some legal sources, I was told that a bankrupt nation has no legal rights and that the people and resources are nothing more than chattel holdings.
QUINTUS DIAS. Recommendations and Information from QD as a former LEO to the grassroots investigators of corruption in HARNEY COUNTY OREGON.
RULES FOR HAPPINESS WHILE CONDUCTING COMPLEX INVESTIGATIONS
PROLOGUE (Updated 2-1-2016)
–Transparency. Freedom from obscurity and easy to understand; the comprehensibility of clear expression, statements and or facts.
–Obscurity. The quality of being unclear or abstruse and hard to understand. Obscurity is the main obstacle of investigations bent on understanding, revelations, clarity and seeing the object/s of investigation/s for what it truly is or represents.
Rules for Investigations-Preliminary Considerations
The OBJECTIVE-what is it you are trying to know, understand, or to make clear-
Ascertain what you know or do not know. [ Is your investigation related to criminal conduct, politics, ethics, and science? For example investigating corruption may have a political and or criminal nexus]
Resources. What resources do you have to initiate, conduct, and complete a thorough, competent investigation? [Materials, time, expertise, analysis, money, phones, computers, radio, media]
Specialists. What specialists do you have to lend expertise to certain aspects of the investigation? [A homicide investigations needs specialists in crime scene investigation techniques, evidence technicians, skilled interrogators, law experts and skilled cops with expertise in all aspects of homicide investigation ]
Evidence and the Discovery Process. What elements of the investigation pertain to evidence? What is the discovery process?
Evidence. What may be deemed evidence and how to preserve it or present it?
The Discovery Process: facts and Information obtained through the discovery process-questioning, reading, examining persons, documents, photos or films may lead to conclusion supporting a thesis or a conclusion of guilt.
Recourse to law. A criminal investigation or a civil suit investigation conducted under the auspices of a court has weight-that is, respondents, persons of interest, may be compelled by legal authority or penalty to present information, depositions objects, and submit to questioning to disclose identities, actions, and locations of
Persons directly or indirectly to the investigation. Thus, it helps to have legal powers to conduct an investigation.
–Police have legal authority to investigate
–Grand Juries have legal authority to investigate
–Courts have legal authority to issue search and seizure warrants based on probable cause
Private Investigations. These investigations do not have legal authority, period. Private investigators do not have the legal right to go onto private property without an owner’s consent, nor do they have the ability to obtain bank records, email records, or phone records; they also cannot tamper with mail, wiretap a phone without consent, or obtain information or data through illegal means.
Scope of Discovery with Legal Recourse. The basic rule of discovery is that a party may obtain any information that pertains to any issue in the case, as long as the information is not “privileged” or otherwise legally protected by law. Particulars of investigatory value are–
anything a witness or party saw, heard, or did in connection with the case
anything anyone said at a particular time and place
the identity of anyone who might know something about the case, about injuries, or money losses, or criminal conduct
detailed information on how a business or agency is run
documents relating to the case
The personal, educational, and professional background of a witness.
NOTE: obviously, a criminal investigation has many advantages over a private investigation. However, this should not discourage private parties from conducting an investigation until they are barred by legal constraints by law. Much can be learned despite the power a legal investigation has.
The Discovery Process for Private Investigators [Complex Investigations]
Newspaper resources. News paper articles related to the subject at hand are a primary resource. Make sure you check the morgue files for information
Radio broadcasts/interviews, photo montages of persons, places, and documents are another resource
Social Media outlets. These are an excellent investigatory tool
Books, magazines, journals, documents. All are excellent resources for the discovery process
Documentaries. Film documentaries are an excellent resource
Primary sources. Primary sources allow investigators to get to the roots of original ideas, events and or studies. This can include creative ideas, first hand or contemporary accounts of events, publication of the results and or observations or studies, and other items directly related to the source.
Novels, plays, poems, works of art, popular culture
Secondary sources analyze, review or review information in primary resources or other secondary resources. All sources presenting facts or descriptions about events are secondary unless they are based on eyewitness observation. Moreover, secondary sources often rely on other secondary sources and standard disciplinary methods to reach results, and they provide the principle sources of analysis about primary sources. Examples include:
Scholarly articles that don’t present new experimental research results
Tertiary sources relate to overviews of topics by merging information from other resources. Tertiary resources can present data in a comprehensive form by tables, chronologies, almanacs and useful context to interpret it–
III. The Trajectory of Complex Investigations. There are several trajectories that must be understood, planned for, and equipped for.
The political. What political figures, parties, or concepts are applicable to the investigation?
Politicians [Democrat, Republican, Other] and links to persons of interest or corporate bodies, especially to lobbyists, mouthpieces, sources of finance (donors) and known criminals
Political parties [What links to the parties have to the present narrative, topics and persons of interest]
Political constructs [is the topic of investigation applicable to a socialist, communist, fascist or Republican form of government?
The Criminal/Legal. What actions of persons of interest may constitute crimes and the discovery of evidence supporting allegations of criminal conduct?
Corruption, malfeasance, bribery, theft of services, intimidation of witnesses, perjury.
Violation of civil rights: Rights to assembly, unlawful arrest, unlawful detention, due process, incrimination
Evidence supporting the above
Preservation and chain of custody related to the above
Investigate instances or claims of judicial misconduct, perjury, witness tampering, and failure to disclose evidence. This applies to cops, judges, prosecutors and witnesses
The mysterious death/s or disappearance/s of anyone linked to the Objective
The Financial [follow the money]. This is a biggie! What financial rewards or assets are at stake? Who has these stakes in possession or is about to ? What wealth is at stake [gas, oil, gold, lead, copper, silver, water, food crops, and cattle, wind, thermal etc.] Follow the money from the source to the person/s of interest and how it is spent, secured, or disposed of and to whom.
Source of money-who or what is it and the links to the person/s of interest [foreign or domestic source…loan company… bank…brokerage…loan company…shylocks…private loan
Convertible assets. Not all financial streams are based on money. Residences, land, artworks, gems, patents, publishing rights, loan of assets, conveyances, and business percentages can be exchanged for money or serve as money.
Money Laundering. The washing of illegal financial gains to make it legal.
NOTE: Money Laundering has three distinct parts-A forensic accountant can be extremely helpful in complex investigations if a financial element is under scrutiny
Placement. The insertion of “dirty” funds into a legitimate institution, such as a cash deposit in a bank, or the money purchases stock and or notes and or bonds in a legitimate institution
Layering. This washes money through stock or wire transfers between different accounts and or different countries and or the making of constant deposits or withdrawals to different persons, institutions and or accounts to complicate the transfer of funds and the principals involved. The money may change form to hard assets such as boats, planes and other high value items that can be converted back to cash (diamonds and gems or stamps)
Integration. The money once again enters the economy in legitimate or legal form. It may come from a legal transaction originating from bank transfer into the account of a local business. The recipient may have an interest or access to the account or in the business for a percentage of the profits
SUMMARY: Consequently, persons who have no legal authority investigating persons of record and or interest related to the Harney County, Oregon allegations of political corruption have a difficult but not impossible task.
Get access to stock brands, registries’, grazing permits, water rights, foreclosures, bankruptcies and court records, land patents. See who owns what in Harney County. See who sold what to targets or fronts associated with them.
See if the targets have associations with mob figures, criminals of record, financial institutions, criminal convictions/pardons, links with: lobbyists, global organizations, ecological organizations, employment, job creation and NGO boards. See if the targets have cross linkages with other persons associated with land, legal, mortgage, financial and or ecology organizations. What are they?
See if the targets have numerous bank accounts, offshore accounts, take expensive vacations, political junkets and appear to live beyond their means. NOTE: Identify any shell companies or fronts and ID board of directors, where the corporation is registered and who registered it. See if there are cross linkages of the shell with any other companies.
Obtain statements of net worth applicable to all politicians of interest and or public figures, who may be related, and see if they have obtained professional performance bonds. Did the politicians sign their oaths of office?
NOTE: Many politicians refuse to sign their oaths of office and this is a tipoff that they may be part of the corruption gang operative in the jurisdiction at hand.
Ascertain if the targets have rule-making, foreclosure, financial sanction, or enforcement powers and delineate what they are.
Ascertain if the targets have conflicts of interest and delineate what they are.
Create spider web linkages between persons of interest and or organizations.
Develop and protect confidential sources of information.
Protect your information: duplicate it, disperse it, use digitization and hard copies.
Limit the information to only authorized persons.
Expect official obfuscation, provocations, misleading statements, or deceptive persons to throw you off course
Compartmentalize the investigation as much as possible.
Develop sources who can add their expertise on a voluntary basis that may want to publish your investigation, and or may use it for criminal proceedings as a base.
Photograph, film and or tape, or digitize papers, persons, vehicles, buildings, conveyances including permits, license plate numbers.
DO NOT TALK to the MSM or to police about what you are doing. As long as you are lawful, they do not need to know want you are doing. Nor are you obligated to inform them.
Never meet a witness or source on their ground, especially in isolated places. You choose the place [preferably a public place]. Use a bodyguard detail when meeting sources [they should have CCW permits and carry heat]. Never pay for sources of information.
Investigators should not be predictable. Change your daily schedule…do not use customary routes to places…change routes, residences, or vehicles, clothes as frequently as possible. Use remote car starters. Be careful of unsolicited mail or mail displaying misspellings, partially wrong address or that have oily stains, or that have no return address, or that seem unduly heavy. It may be a letter bomb.
Use public library computers if you can without disclosing your identity. Use encryption.
Run anti-virus and malware programs daily.
be persistent, polite, and at times stand back and think about what you are doing and how it all relates. See the big picture and keep that in focus.
Quintus Dias. After watching the proceedings at the community meeting so-called in Burns, Oregon, on 01-19-2016 at the Harney Co. High School it was obvious to me that it was staged and manipulated to deny the people of Oregon and the United States an opportunity to hear dispassionately the issues at hand.
The mafia clique in Harney County did not disappoint. The issues surrounding the Hammonds, who are widely believed to have been railroaded into prison, the extinguishment of ranching as a way of life, the loss of so many jobs, the preponderance of the BLM, and government in the lives of Harney County residents and how Harney County became the poorest county in Oregon, when it was formerly the richest residents was neglected or lost in a new version of the Kansas City shuffle.
Instead, we heard about the fear of kids in the schools, the closing of schools, the presence of unruly and suspicious outsiders raising hell, and the crime scene activities of unrestrained insurgents at the refuge. We heard about invaders. We heard calls for the cops to stop being so nice to outsiders and the necessity to kick ass. We heard of elephants poking their long noses into Harney County. The elephant rested on Aamon Bundy and company. BUT there was only a few lonely voices that brought up Susie Hammond, her family and the rights of other people, who the mafia clique running Harney County have in the past, or who are presently abusing. Sad.
Mafia? Yeah, mafia. The mafia has evolved to be the various governments in the United States. We have a mafia government at large and must recognize that and deal with it.
Was the effort by the protesters to engage in dialogue in vain? No. The protesters in Harney County and the American people must consider the way of Jesus and his example. Jesus talked to any and all along his journey. It was a terribly hard road. We are seeing the same road in search of truth unfold before us.
The meeting presented the American people with a first-hand view of the very real evil forces now loose among the American polity and in the long run, that may be a positive thing in prompting people to understand that something is very wrong in America.
The population of Harney Co, Oregon is about 7500 persons. Did the people at the meeting really represent Harney County? No. We saw a lot of people concerned about the environment, the Malheur refuge and the presence of outsiders stirring up shit.
Judge Crasty, by his own admission says his main focus is forming partnerships with ecological organizations to create jobs for Harney Co. Uh, judge how does forming alliances with ecological organizations bent on collectivizing the land and driving farmers and rancher off the land benefit Harney County? Kindly explain that.
Moreover, when police throw out dissenters or those who voice opposing views, what does this tell you? When you have hecklers present preventing free expression, what does this tell you? When Judge Grasty has his pre-selected responders step up to the podium with obvious canned speeches, what does that tell you? When the Judge interposes himself between attendees only allowing certain subjects to be discussed, what does this tell you?
Well, it tells me that Boss Tweed is alive and well in rural America and is operating just like he did in New York City–taking bribes, having his political opponents crushed and the promise of jobs, benefits, and public notoriety overriding civil liberties and justice.
Heil, Boss Tweed. Boss Tweed? Yeah, big boss Tweed and the political machine is alive and well in Burns, Oregon. Judge Grasty has learned his lessons well.
Oh, let me be a real asshole and tell you that the New York Police Department really got its professional start under Boss Tweed, who hired for the most part, Irish (the Dead Rabbits, the Five Points Gang, the Plug Uglies, the Whyos, and so on) and other ethnic gangs to police New York City. Gangstas as coppers? Yeah, there you have it. In the long run, cops who act as thugs are nothing more than street gangsters dressed in blue.
From Cyrellys to the People – Harney County Meeting Clarification; it IS a National Problem.
Cyrellys Geibhendach. I have now viewed several versions of the video concerning the meeting last night in Harney Co Burns OR regarding the Ammon Bundy group and the Hammonds situation, land grabs and corruption. It seems to me, as a concerned researcher and frequent radio guest, that the evidence of the national scope of the land grabbing is not reaching the citizens on the ground living in Harney Co and Burns. While I seen some heartfelt concern from the community for the welfare of their community, the whole came across as extreme PROVINCIALISM. Provincialism is a noun, defined as:
Provincialism is the state of having concern for purely local matters, or having a narrow outlook.
example of provincialism is being concerned with only one’s town, as
opposed to surrounding communities or other countries as well.

This is very concerning because the problem here IS a national one; harney county is not the only county in America experiencing the victimization involving the siphoning of land to securitize the NATIONAL DEBT to our creditors while lining the pockets of the corrupt officials involved.
(SEE RESEARCH IMAGES AT BOTTOM OF PAGE – ADDITIONAL COPIES AS PDFS LOADED TO MANTICORE MEDIA FILE)
While I don’t agree with what Ammon did, I do recognize his actions have finally broken the log-jam on awareness about the use of Agenda 21 to clear lands in the west and compensate for what we’ve learned is a failure of the federal government to pay creditors like China. China who has been caught openly talking about COLONIZING the western United States lands that two years ago they had representatives quietly inspecting! That’s not stirring the pot. It commonly known fact in the Liberty Community which the provincial communities of America who just desire ‘normalcy’ and all the bias that goes with it, apparently DON’T KNOW.
Ignorance is one of the most solvable problems in all of life and yet it is our greatest nemesis in this paradigm – a problem we have not yet mastered on the local level. I ask, do we still have time to solve this problem and apply solutions that don’t involve violence against a eugenic culture that also openly talks about population reduction and population stabilization? I personally do not know. Communities like Burns Or are many. They simply have never been exposed to the proof and its supporting information. They have not been exposed to the patterns of the clandestine activities to reform American culture, sentiments, and understanding. They barely understand that there is something inherently wrong with Common Core.
I know what many in the liberty community are thinking right now after this meeting last night in Burns OR. It is why should we continue to stand against this tyranny and be the buffer of the provincialism afflicting the roots of America. We know this provincialism has been carefully fostered to keep everyone asleep and oblivious to the scope of what has been going on in their name in the shadows. The people in the liberty community are probably asking themselves why should we continue to put our lives and futures on the line on the behalf of a nation that doesn’t care about their nation’s survival as a Constitutional Republic. Who patently don’t self-educate and who routinely fall for emotional intrusions to the perceptions designed to keep them asleep? Why should we defend them still?
The answer to that is if we don’t, no one will. And without EVERY American, no one left behind, we no longer have a nation. We no longer have our due diligence. We no longer have a mutual collective soul. We become balkinized like Europe who cannot defend their nations from an obvious invasion from the Middle East. Now if we can’t do this, we will not be able to defend ourselves from that SAME invasion that is being brought here by our national leaders in DC. And we will not be able to defend ourselves from the depopulation advocates in high places in government, academia, medicine, and media. It starts here folks.
We must continue to say to the tyranny, “YOU SHALL NOT PASS!”
Someone asked me this morning, “do you see the size of the can holding the worms of the paradigm?”
I said “yes, yes I do. IT runs across the whole nation and around the planet beyond — clear to the top of every structure of governance, this NWO reformation. This is a national issue as I said this land issue in Harney is a channel through the paradigm and a place where the nation as a whole can hit home – respond effectively against the NWO. There is so little opportunity left and I am VERY concerned about how the Liberty Community and national militias are going to take this lack of understanding in Harney Co. Peole believe what they see and if they don’t see the other side or HEAR it loud and clear, they believe what there is, even if it is not truth.”
Folks we have a chance to carry this break in the log-jam. However we’re on the verge of losing that break because people are either too busy or fear to be televised or don’t think they can or have an obligation to stand up.
So few realize this is a NATIONAL ISSUE. This siphoning of lands is happening EVERYWHERE in the nation! And the debt and the destruction of the nation from within is NOT going to go away if we allow ourselves to just “get on with life”. In fact, just ‘getting on with your lives,” is the fastest way to affirm those behind the scenes in high places of power to take what little you still possess, hand it off to foreign players, and finish the set up to depopulation.
You say it can’t happen here. I’m telling all of you whether you are liberty community or some other person, that it IS HAPPENING HERE. And if you allow this deconstruction of our nation to continue don’t you DARE EVER AGAIN criticize the GERMANS or the RUSSIANS for standing passively by while their nations were taken to their knees and so many were loaded onto trains to the camps.

ABOUT CYRELLYS. For those who do not know Cyrellys and are concerned her message is as an outsider, you should know she was born and raised in Oregon until moving to Montana a decade ago. She is a researcher, communication facilitator and freelance writer and information analyst with a history in the research community on the Deep State.
Editor. Susan Lindauer on the Covert Report on Saturday January 9, 2016 interviews both Cyrellys Geibhendach and Quintus Dias of Manticore Group about the Burns OR situation and their use of the Committees of Safety.
A week ago, the dramatic stand off in Burns, Oregon erupted suddenly, without warning over Dwight (73) and Steven (46) Hammond’s court order to surrender to prison for a second time, on charges of “terrorism”, as punishment for a controlled burn to offset a lightning fire which accidentally jumped over to BLM lands. What BLM decries as “arson,” ranchers consider healthy land management practices to prevent the sort of large scale forest fires that have destroyed thousands of acres of lands elsewhere in Oregon and California. The rest is history: After a public protest, Ammon and Cliven Bundy took over the Malheur Wildlife Refuge. The situation appeared so dire that Oathkeepers and liberty activities feared the protest might spark a second Waco conflagration with federal authorities. That’s when they invoked “safety committees”— and changed the whole dynamic of the confrontation, as today’s guests, Cyrellys Geibendach and “Quintas Dias” from the Liberty Community relate.. For the most part, elected officials have stayed away, but real community leaders have stepped into the leadership void, and have been hearing grievances and working out better strategies for making sure the Hammonds’ nightmare ordeal in prison doesn’t occur again. In the process, we’ve learned that 100 RANCHERS in Eastern Oregon have been pushed off their lands by BLM technocrats. It’s a lesson in successful civic action that everybody needs to hear.
Dwight Hammond (73) of Burns, Oregon is likely to die in prison because of double jeopardy and double talking on terrorism, in pursuit of civil forfeiture of ranch lands. Today’s guests, terrorism analyst Scott Bennett and Michael Jay Anderson, challenge the outrageous notion that Constitution-loving, flag-waving, cowboys in boots have been attainted as “terrorists” for espousing limitations on federal authority. This is a great show, which confronts the hypocrisy of U.S and European demands for multi-cultural support for Islamic refugees pouring over the borders into Europe, while exposing the public to real dangers and violence from young Islamic men, as witnessed in Germany, Sweden, Austria, Spain, Norway…. the list goes on. Europeans are filing permits for guns and tasers at record rates for self protection. Meanwhile, in the good ole U.S of A, Ron Paul bumper stickers and controlled burns on private ranch lands (to prevent massive wildfires in the West) are equated to acts of terrorism. Come listen to the global craziness as world leaders try to defend open refugee policies, and clamp downs on local activists. You won’t like it, either!
By the way, The Bureau of Land Management has admitted that it does not subject its own employees to arson charges when they’ve made mistakes during prescribed burns, so the punishment for the Hammonds was excessive, Hammonds’ attorney points out.
“To treat them as terrorists, we think, is horribly unjust and secondly, hypocritical,” he said. “Why does the federal government need to get more?”

PRESENTATION OF RESOLUTION
Quintus Dias. Attempts are being made to resolve this issue. Distrust of fedgov is so deep, that the presenters were armed when they presented their resolution. Sheriff Mack and others have been contacted to see if they can use their influence to peacefully end this incident. If bullets fly, we all loose. Bundy and his people have made their point. Now it is time for Oregonians to deal with this and for the Bundyites to go home, as they have succeeded in alerting people in Oregon and across America as to the nature of the problem. Americans do not like martyrs-of any kind, nor do they like hidden agendas, or being put on the spot. Bundy and his people put Oregonians on the spot. All right, they made their case. Now go home.
Note by Cyrellys Geibhendach, from email January 11, 2016.
They had a representative at the Saturday 9 2016 Committee of Safety Meeting in town. Dressed in civilian clothes at the time and very polite and courteous even beyond the short speech the rep made. That however was before the information about the fedgov sending in the professional killers SOD-X and Delta Force was widely known.
I agree with a lot of the elements delineated in this article. Simply put, it is not enough to lead or be part of a political movement in opposition to tyranny. You must control all aspects of resistance to tyrants: economic, military, information, education, logistics, and spiritual (spiritual or soft power must be included with hard power), or fail.
Imperial France developed a very effective counter-insurgency strategy to cope with numerous insurgency movements during the heyday of the French empire in Asia and in Africa. They tested the strategy in the Spanish Peninsular War, and in North Africa during the so-called Rift wars. It worked-for a time.
This strategy can be used against tyrants equally well. What must be understood, is that it is all inclusive. You cannot ignore any of the elements listed below.
1. Military (recruitment and training)
2. Logistics (hard power: weapons, ammunition, sources of supply and manufacture and delivery of military equipements or accessories to project power)
3. Control (and development) of the local economy
5. Spiritual realm (includes hearts and minds)
6. Information (deep-rooted information and counter-propaganda)
7. Leadership (at all levels)
8. Building and maintaining alternative infrastructure (services: trash, police, taxes, waste, power, water, medicine, government, industry, education)
9. Time and fighting over generations (the fight may be over protracted time or become trans generational)
The strategy centers on the oil-drop concept. Simply, it rests on dropping a succession of oil drops representing centers of opposition to tyrants across a geographical area. Consider the geographic area a table cloth. Each drop or resistance movement contains elements 1 through 9. Once the movement has secured control of its area of operations, another drop of oil or resistance movement is dropped on the so-called tablecloth representing geography to be controlled. Ultimately, the outcome, if applied correctly is that the tablecloth or the area you wish to control becomes one big oil stain. This strategy was used by the very competent Polish resistance movement during WWII. It was also used by Ho Chi Minh and the Vietminh and later during the Vietnam war by the Viet Cong. You can also see elements of it used by American patriots during the Revolutionary war.
Moving forward, during the 1990s, elements of the same strategy was used by Constitutionalist political operatives to overturn and drive out hard core leftist groups from the Pacific Northwest. These forces destroyed Hilary Clinton’s political base in the Pacific Northwest. It worked-for some time. However, the success was not permanent as everyone went back to sleep! And this is one of our big failings. After having destroyed or defeating the enemy, Americans tend to go back home thinking the fight is over with. History shows us that the fight to remain free is never over with. NEVER!
