BREAKING : "Chilling Effects" Libels 5th Estate With No Prior Contact, No Legal Authority, No Complaint Review

These pretentious, elitist Nazi bastard lawyers who specialize in intimidation and anti-media terror tactics operate under the cloak of legitimacy, bogus legality and advocates of Independent Media when in reality they are paid by Google to mount credibility assaults on Independent Media news bureaus that dare tell the truth or defy Google:  We do not know how long we will be up however we will continue to report until taken down by Google - there was absolutely no warning from these criminals that any action was about to be taken against The 5th Estate, "Chilling Effects" has no legal authority to censor news bureaus or libel them in print:  We are now contacting lawyers in the U.S. to file a libel lawsuit against them

Below is our inquiry - after the fact - to "Chilling Effects," an organization we had never heard of before and now appears to be in the business of terrorizing legitimate news bureaus with bogus legal claims to authority to do so:

Seltzer, "chilling Effect" now under investigation

To:  "Chilling Effects"

Dear Wendy,

    Would you please identify yourself and explain to us how you are involved with this issue?

    Could you also explain how you or your organization have any legal jurisdiction over this as the bureau site is owned and operated by an Indonesian national and the laws of the U.S. have absolutely no jurisdiction over it, and how you can arbitrarily, ethically and professionally take this kind of action with absolutely no prior notification to us?

    And would you also explain how you are exempt for being sued for libel and defamation, having absolutely no proof this event is even factual or subject to any laws in the U.S.?

    Also, please explain to us how we cannot immediately make this issue public, not only on our front page but throughout Independent Media?

    Please get back to me immediately with your answers, or I am afraid we will have to take this into the public domain, with negative results for your "organization," you personally and anyone else involved in this libel and slander of us personally and our news bureau.

Robert S. Finnegan
The 5th Estate

And here, is their meaningless, totally bullshit response:

Wendy Seltzer


Chilling Effects serves as a clearinghouse for cease and desist letters.
Our goal is to educate the public about the different kinds of cease and
desist letters--both legitimate and questionable--that are being sent to
Internet publishers. We annotate the letters to help the public
understand their legal language, and collect as many letters as possible
to help the public understand the types of letters that are being sent
and what searches are affected by them. By posting cease and desist
notices, we are not authenticating them or making any judgment on the
validity of the claims they raise.

Chilling Effects is not the sender of these notices, and is not
responsible for removing pages from the web or search engine listings.

If you believe a web page or site was wrongly removed, you should
contact the ISP or search engine who removed the site. In the case of an
improper DMCA notification, you may wish to file a counter-notification, For more information
on the DMCA, please see If
you have questions for Google about a removal from search results pages,
you should contact Google.


And this is AFTER they libeled us on their site.

"By posting cease and desist notices, we are not authenticating them or making any judgment on the validity of the claims they raise."
Are they kidding?  They libel a news bureau and then claim they are not responsible for it?  Is this woman related to George W. Bush or Carl Rove?  Do they really think we will buy into this BULLSHIT?

Here is an excerpt from the Google pull-notice proving they are lying:

"The notice that we received, with any personally identifying information removed, will be posted online by a service called Chilling Effects at "

And our response:

Robert Finnegan
5:39 AM (1 hour ago)

Wendy Seltzer


You posted this libelous crap, you are personally and professionally responsible for damage to our credibility and persons.

You should have consulted with an attorney or at least contacted us before posting that erroneous garbage on your site.  It is nothing more than Nazi terror tactics to cover for Google taking down our site over negative news coverage of them.  We will now seek legal counsel in the U.S. and there are a lot of hungry lawyers out there.

We will sue you personally, anyone else involved from your organization, and your organization.

If we manage to stay up long enough, you can look for a report on your organization, we will investigate and EVISCERATE you in print.

Even if Google does take us down, our site is archived in several places throughout the world, and I guarantee you we will be back up in a few weeks and you will be the FIRST REPORT we publish.

We had over 23 million hits on our site last month, so you may be assured of wide coverage.

Believe Me,

Robert S. Finnegan
The 5th Estate

And here is our response to Google and their take down notice:

Fuck you assholes.  The image in question does not belong to the thief that is attempting to extort image rights from us.  This is only an allegation and has no basis in fact and you fuckers know it.

We are moving out site from Google.  You can expect this issue to be published when we have re-established our bureau with a new provider.

Google is a CIA owned and operated corporation, and we will be on your asses until doomsday.  We know we cannot impact you in a big way, but we will hurt you and your sales, costing you money.

Our site has been archived in numerous places, so go ahead and take us down and watch the reaction explode across Independent Media.  You can expect a negative media reaction from this as we release a Press Release identifying you and your company as censors and accessories to criminal image rights extortionists.

You have absolutely no proof of copyright ownership of this image.

Go fuck yourselves.  This is going to cost you.

Robert S. Finnegan
The 5th Estate

The upshot of this is that if these media terrorists can do it to The 5th Estate, they can do it to anyone.  We urge our readers and especially those with news sites to access these bastards and tag them as no-entry sites on your firewall, for beginners.  We are still investigating them professionally and personally and will report back here - if we are still up.

Again, thanks to our readers for their very vocal support so far.

We will continue to report until taken down.

NYC Officer Arrested in Ghoulish Cannibal Kidnap Plot : Upstages Indonesian Cannibal Sumanto

NYC, NYPD pigs should all be disbanded, hiring regulations changed to guarantee cops have IQ above 70 for employment

Associated Press
By Tom Hays


A city police officer was charged Thursday in a ghoulish plot to kidnap and torture women and then cook and eat their body parts.

New York City's cuisine trendsetters
Gilberto Valle sent numerous emails and other Internet communications about the torture and cannibalism scheme, according to a criminal complaint. He identified and catalogued at least 100 women on his computer, investigators said, but there was no information that anyone was harmed.

"I was thinking of tying her body onto some kind of apparatus ... cook her over low heat, keep her alive as long as possible," Valle allegedly wrote in one exchange in July, the complaint says.

In other online conversations, investigators said, Valle talked about the mechanics of fitting a woman's body into an oven (her legs would have to be bent), said he could make chloroform at home to knock a woman out and discussed how "tasty" one woman looked.

"Her days are numbered," he wrote, according to the complaint.

Valle was to appear in federal court in Manhattan on Thursday afternoon to face charges of kidnapping conspiracy and unauthorized use of law enforcement records. The name of his attorney was not immediately available, and no one answered the door to his home in a quiet, middle-class Queens neighborhood.

A search of Valle's computer found he created records of at least 100 women with their names, addresses and photos, the complaint says. Some of the information came from his unauthorized use of a law enforcement database, authorities said. He claimed, according to the complaint, that he knew many of them.

Indonesian cannibal Sumanto pissed off at being upstaged by NYC cannibal cop:  "I normally avoid eating pork, by will make an exception in the case of this pig"

"The allegations in the complaint really need no description from us," said Mary E. Galligan, acting head of the FBI's New York office. "They speak for themselves. It would be an understatement merely to say Valle's own words and actions were shocking."

There was no immediate response to a message left with the NYPD on Thursday.

Valle met one potential victim over lunch, authorities said.

The complaint alleges that in February, Valle negotiated to kidnap another woman for someone else, writing, "$5,000 and she's all yours."

He told the buyer he was aspiring to be a professional kidnapper, authorities said.

"I think I would rather not get involved in the rape," according to the complaint. "You paid for her. She is all yours, and I don't want to be tempted the next time I abduct a girl."

It says he added: "I will really get off on knocking her out, tying up her hands and bare feet and gagging her. Then she will be stuffed into a large piece of luggage and wheeled out to my van."

Cellphone data revealed that Valle made calls on the block where the woman lives in March, the complaint says. An FBI agent interviewed the woman, who told them that she didn't know him well and was never in her home.

Valle, 28, lives in Queens. He had been assigned to a Manhattan precinct before his suspension on Wednesday.

His Facebook page cultivated the image of a very different man. Postings were filled with photos of a smiling wife, a baby girl and an English bulldog puppy named Dudley. A Maryland football and Yankees fan, Valle had more than 600 Facebook friends, including dozens of young women.

Valle respected his colleagues on the force, took the sergeant's exam and spoke out against Occupy Wall Street, cop killers and others who broke the law, according to the page. His current photo was a blue line, a sign of mourning for when an officer is killed, and expressed condolences for the family of a Nassau County officer who was shot to death this week.

"Keep Nassau County police in your prayers what a brutal week," he wrote earlier this week.

The page was taken down Thursday afternoon.

A man who identified himself as Valle's younger brother but did not give his name told reporters outside the officer's home that he was surprised by the arrest.

"You guys know more than I do," he said.

Iran Sounds Death Knell for U.S. Colonial Adventurism in Mideast

Thanks to the Bush and Obama criminal regimes the U.S. will go the way of the British East India Company   

By Gordon Duff

This week’s presidential debate on the issue of foreign policy was, at best, a humiliation for America. I am not talking about the minor issues, such as Romney not knowing where Iran and Syria are on a map or that Iran has nearly 2,000 miles of coastline.

Colonialism sounded death-knell for British Empire
It is easy to confuse Iran with Kazakhstan or even Iceland. Americans are not typically good at geography or math or engineering or languages.

I cringed to see who would be the first candidate to misquote President Ahmadinejad’s quotation:

“History will erase Zionism from the sands of time.”

According to Romney, making this statement is considered “genocide” and he indicated he was going to go to the International Criminal Court at The Hague and have charges filed.

Nobody told Romney that America withdrew from the court years ago in fear that American leaders themselves were likely to face indictment.

Those who remember Romney’s statements about the geography of the region know he believes that Iran and Syria have a common border.

Someone should tell Iraq about this.

Obama now supplying Syrian CIA mercs with U.S. Stingers
Then, just today, I got a call from friends in Army intelligence. The Israelis submitted intelligence reports to the US stating that massive shipments of “heavy arms” have been moving from Iran into Syria via highway.
Two roads were mentioned, one heads through the American “Green Zone” in Baghdad, which has to be keeping the people there awake, tanks and missile launchers driving through checkpoints day and night.

The other route goes through Mosul, where the Israelis have established a base. It has to be interfering with their sleep too.

Thus far, though the route is many hundreds of miles over heavily traveled roads through major cities, nobody has seen or photographed a single piece of equipment. However, America’s intelligence organizations have chosen to pass this “intelligence” on to congress and the president.

This information, insanely falsified like the fairly stories Wolfowitz, Chalabi and company took to Bush in 2002 is meant to justify an America “re-occupation,” by force if necessary, of Iraq should Romney be elected.

As Romney owns the company that owns most of America’s electronic voting machines, the chances of his election, even if no one votes for him, are looking better each day.

Pakistan was a major issue for Romney during the debate. Israel, for some reason, seems to be terrified of Pakistan.

The missed point when discussing Pakistan and their “100 nuclear weapons” is that they actually have more like “400 nuclear weapons” and are building JA-17 stealth fighters, an advanced Chinese design based on American plans stolen by Israeli spies…

One thing about war, it doesn’t matter if you live or die, win or lose, as long as you make a profit.

Pakistan pretty-boy, CIA gigolo Imran Khan
Pakistan is looking at a real civilian government for the first time. Leading candidate for prime minister is Imran Khan, curiously one of my good friends.

Khan has a 70% approval rating and has politely informed the United States that if/when he is elected there will be no more aid accepted from the US and no America presence in Pakistan other than normal friendly diplomatic relations.

Lack of cohesive leadership in Pakistan has left a vacuum, Islam’s only nuclear power, Islam’s most powerful military and a nation that has lost 35,000 lives fighting America’s war on terror while under continual attack in the American press for “aiding the enemy.”

The game changer here is that Khan is respected in the west, outspoken, totally fearless and carries no baggage. Last time we met, I told him I could get him elected president of the United States.

Khan would even get the Jewish vote.

I was not kidding. Americans will love him, he is pure “rock star” and a face for Islam that will gut stereotypes. This will be fun.

We had mentioned Syria earlier and the imaginary convoys through Kurdistan or Iraq or perhaps under water, the ones the Israeli drones see but cannot photograph because of the dense jungle in the arid regions of northern Iraq.

My suggestion is that the US gets drones themselves or, perhaps, sends up satellites.

If the convoys are going through the Green Zone, perhaps someone could just go outside and look.

The foreign policy presidential debate missed a couple of issues, one major one is political instability in Turkey.

Israel has been pushing its surrogate allies, a group of smaller nations it currently controls that formed a coalition after World War II.

Israel’s private mercenary force is sometimes called NATO though the French manage to play along though they quit NATO in 1959.

The key to Syria seems to be pushing Turkey into moving forces into Syria under the guise of a buffer or humanitarian operation of some kind.

However, reports from inside Turkey indicate that, were this to occur, civil war will break out immediately and the Erdogan/military government will be overthrown.

Obama/CIA poodle Erdogan will destroy Turkey
The result would be Turkey’s withdrawal from NATO and the formation of an Islamic trade bloc from Istanbul to Islamabad, which would more than offset the coalition between Israel, Saudi Arabia and the Persian Gulf states.

Russia and China see this as the end of America as the world’s dominant power.

The second way into Syria is through destabilizing Lebanon through terror attacks and wild conspiracies, an operation that began a bit over a week ago, coinciding with US troops moving into Jordan for “humanitarian purposes.”

The US move coincides with the Syrian rebels being armed with advanced American Stinger missiles, a coincidence, of course.

A major issue left out of the debates is the American takeover of Africa. America has kept a very low profile in African operations, decades of military support and training along with close cooperation with the French.

The war for Africa is slated to begin with an African Union force being sent into northern Mali supported by French air power and US drones.

The justification is the branding of the Tauregs in northern Mali, longtime allies of Gaddafi in Libya as “al-Qaeda.”

With the Boko Harum of northern Nigeria and Niger also being “rebranded” as convenient al-Qaeda “franchises” and the rash of car bombings, Nigeria and Kenya the primary targets, selling another decade of “war on terror” in Africa is well underway.

What is needed, however, is a nation properly placed as a base of operations, one that can sustain a “rope-a-dope” civil war while convenient enough to occupy.

Uganda seems to -- out of geographic necessity -- wear the “black dot.” Groups are showing up, planning where to build Kentucky Fried Chicken franchise and Taco Bells.

With Sudan partitioned and Kenya currently operating in Somalia and stories of terror cells springing up across Africa filling American and Israeli “pop culture” news, the world is hearing the death knell of America’s colonial adventure in the Middle East.

With Russia guarding Northern flanks, Assad and Ahmadinejad will join forces and drive North into Turkey, crushing it and NATO forces and leaving it to the Russians; then joined by Armenia, Azerbaijan, Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan will wheel south and drive into Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait, crushing their dictatorial regimes and seizing their oil fields:  Israel will cease to exist while Qatar, Bahrain, UAE, Oman will be left over to the mop-up crew along with any other U.S. lackey regime in the Gulf:  Egypt will have to decide who to throw their hand in with - it should not be a tough decision for President Morsi

America will leave empty handed with the last remaining chance: the overthrow of Syria and the destabilization of Lebanon. These may be the most dangerous adventures of all, ones that have “World War III” stamped all over them.

Dreams of the conquest of all that could be surveyed, the Caspian Basin to the Sea, colonial garrisons or puppet dictators from the Mediterranean to India, from the sea to the Russian frontier, are all slipping between the grasping fingers of the “Masters of the Universe.”

All that will remain is $5,000 trillion in debt, countless dead and maimed and the ongoing heroin production of Afghanistan as America’s only legacy.

The future will be Africa, mercenary armies, imaginary terrorism, drone wars on a scale never seen before, a war potentially unending, new enemies created when and where the drive of neocolonialism dictates.

We are watching round three, the crushing of the Tauregs of northern Mali.

Has anyone yet told them they are supposed to lose?
