Senator Dianne Feinstein's Deadly Silence

by Janet C.Phelan Friday, Jul. 15, 2005 at 5:33 PM

"Senator Dianne Feinstein's office sill not intervene if the FBI decides to kill a reporter"--Ashley Tveit, Case Manager at Senator Feinstein's San Francisco office.

"Congress shall make no law...abridging the freedom of speech of of the press." ---First Amendment.

This reporter had contacted Senator Dianne Feinstein's office requesting intervention. Feinstein offers case management when a constituent encounters a "problem" with a federal agency. This reporter survived an assassination attempt in January 2003. I can identify Officer Dawson, Long Beach Police Department as the lead officer in the attempt on my life which resulted in two days of unconsciousness and a hospitalization. There were several other plainclothes officers present who identified themselves as federal officers. This reporter had become aware that there is a genocidal agenda, still subterranean, being advanced under the Bush administration (See "Public Extermination Project" and "The War Comes Hom(sic)"--both archived on la.indymedia.org). I had been attempting to pull in other media previous to the January 2002 attack.

I had been residing with an undercover intelligence operative, Jack Smith, at 7911 1/8 Norton Ave. in West Hollywood at the time that issues indicating a genocidal impetus came to my attention. Smith's cover job is at Imagic, located at 2810 Lima in Burbank. Smith helped set up my intended demise.

Having survived the cop attack, I was released from the hospital, only to return to an apartment which had already been rented out to someone else. Clearly I was not meant to survive. My bank account was subsequently cleaned out and my safety deposit boxes accessed.

As I am experiencing a relentlessness in attempts to permanently silence me, I appealed to Senator Feinstein to "get these guys off me." Feinstein's office refused assistance. Caseworker Ashley Tveit, at Feinstein's San Francisco office, revealed that "Senator Dianne Feinstein will not intervene if the FBI decides to kill a reporter."

I then contacted Feinstein's press office in Washington D.C. and stated my intent to publicize this shocking statement of policy. Within minutes, I received a phone call from Steven Cash, who identified himself as Feinstein's Chief Counsel. He requested a written report, which I immediately faxed over. There has been no response from Cash or anyone else in that office.

There have been a number of journalists "committing suicide" under the present regime, most notably Jim Hatfield and Gary Webb. Hatfield's book on George W. Bush, "Fortunate Son," examines the President of the United States under a relentless microscope. After receiving death threats to his children following publication of the book, Hatfield was found dead of a reported suicide. Vince Foster, whose reported suicide raised many unanswered questions, was intimately allied with Hatfield's book project. In conversation with Ted Gunderson, formerly the #4 man in the FBI, he made this statement concerning Webb's "suicide:" "He shot himself in the head----twice? How stupid are people to believe that?"

Had the assault on me incurred the intended result, my death would have been reported as a suicide. I am stating that I can positively Identify the federal officer who stuck the needle into my right bicep, if provided with a "rogue's gallery" photo display. He is 30-40 years old, non-Anglo, most likely of Pacific Islander descent, approximately 5'8" in height, medium build, with dark hair and eyes. I collapsed immediately into unconsciousness.

There exists no Internal Affairs report on LBPD Officer Dawson's involvement in my pre-arranged "suicide." When I contacted LBPD to report Dawson, I was informed that I was not "allowed" to contact Internal Affairs.

In a recent front page article in the Los Angeles Times, Senator Feinstein was quoted as stating that she had investigated that Patriot Act, and found no abuses. I had brought my situation to the attention of her office months ago, and she simply refuses to address it.

How many others have you abandoned, Dianne?
