RULES FOR HAPPINESS WHILE CONDUCTING COMPLEX INVESTIGATIONS

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.

 

  1. Rules for Investigations-Preliminary Considerations

 

  1. The OBJECTIVE-what is it you are trying to know, understand, or to make clear-

 

  1. 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]

 

  1. Resources. What resources do you have to initiate, conduct, and complete a thorough, competent investigation? [Materials, time, expertise, analysis, money, phones, computers, radio, media]

 

  1. 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 ]

 

  1. Evidence and the Discovery Process. What elements of the investigation pertain to evidence? What is the discovery process?

           

  1. Evidence. What may be deemed evidence and how to preserve it or present it?

 

  1. 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.

 

  1. 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

 

  1. 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.
  2. 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.

  1. The Discovery Process for Private Investigators [Complex Investigations]
  2. Newspaper resources. News paper articles related to the subject at hand are a primary resource. Make sure you check the morgue files for information
  3. Radio broadcasts/interviews, photo montages of persons, places, and documents are another resource
  4. Social Media outlets. These are an excellent investigatory tool

 

  1. Books, magazines, journals, documents. All are excellent resources for the discovery process
  2. Documentaries. Film documentaries are an excellent resource
  3. Source Context
  4. 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
  • Diaries, narratives, autobiographies, memoirs, speeches
  • Documents, patents, drawings
  • Data tables, technical reports, research results
  1. 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:
  • Literature reviews
  • Scholarly articles that don’t present new experimental research results
  • Historical studies
  • Biographies
  • Newspapers
  1. 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–
  • Encyclopedias
  • Chronologies
  • Almanacs
  • Textbooks

III. The Trajectory of Complex Investigations. There are several trajectories that must be understood, planned for, and equipped for.

  1. 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?

 

  1. 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
  1. 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

MONEY LAUNDERING

  1. 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
  2. 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)
  3. 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
  4. 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.

            Recommendations-

  1. 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.
  2. 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?
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

  1. Ascertain if the targets have rule-making, foreclosure, financial sanction, or enforcement powers and delineate what they are.
  2. Ascertain if the targets have conflicts of interest and delineate what they are.
  3. Create spider web linkages between persons of interest and or organizations.
  4. Develop and protect confidential sources of information.
  5. Protect your information: duplicate it, disperse it, use digitization and hard copies.
  6. Limit the information to only authorized persons.
  7. Expect official obfuscation, provocations, misleading statements, or deceptive persons to throw you off course
  8. Compartmentalize the investigation as much as possible.
  9. 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.
  10. Photograph, film and or tape, or digitize papers, persons, vehicles, buildings, conveyances including permits, license plate numbers.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. Use public library computers if you can without disclosing your identity. Use encryption.
  15. Run anti-virus and malware programs daily.
  16. 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.

Covert Report 01-09-2016 Redemption in Burns OR and Updates

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.

REDEMPTION IN BURNS, OREGON >>
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.

 

Updates:

AIRED: 01-10-2016

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.

Defusing the Situation

More attempts to defuse the Harney Co. situation.
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.

Insurgency and Tyranny

By Quintus Dias

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
4.  Education
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!

Breaking. Attorney, Erratic Behavior

Quintus Dias.

FYI…In fedgov speaks this means “looney tunes.”
