Bill Fawell is @GOP House candidate in Illinois, His Qualifications: Claims @Beyonce and her #BeyHive are tied to the #Illuminati, He is a 9/11 #Truther & @BarackObama #Birther, Wrote Book on Overthrowing the US Government

The Republican nominee for a US House seat in Illinois has said the September 11 terrorist attacks were an inside job and that singer Beyonce Knowles has ties to the Illuminati.

Bill Fawell is running against incumbent Democratic Rep. Cheri Bustos in Illinois' 17th District, where she won by 20 points in 2016 even though the district also voted narrowly for Donald Trump.

Fawell won his uncontested primary in March. He has not reported any fundraising to the Federal Election Commission, per publicly available records.

A KFile review reveals Fawell, a real estate broker, pushed conspiracy theories in blogs and his 2012 book, "New American Revolution: The Constitutional Overthrow of the United States Government."

In his book, Fawell pushed a conspiracy theory that 7 World Trade Center collapsed as part of a controlled demolition and the attacks were a plot to destroy documents.

"Go to YouTube and punch in 'Building #7' It's the third building that went down with the twin towers on 9/11," Fawell wrote. "Nothing hit this building, not a thing, and it fell entirely upon its own. If it looks like a standard commercial implosion demolition, it's because that is exactly what it is."

"It's interesting to note that the clandestine branch of the CIA was housed on the top floor," he added. "No personnel were lost, but any and all documents were destroyed, just like a giant shredder. The Pentagon was hit in a wing being remodeled (but few people), that held a mountain of paperwork regarding 1 trillion dollars which the Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld, was having trouble accounting for. That mountain of paperwork became a pile of ash."

In a February 2013 post on the blog of a political action committee he established in 2012 called Elect a New Congress, Fawell said that Beyonce's husband, rapper Jay-Z, "has a long history of serving up the godless Illuminati" and shared a YouTube video that speculated that Beyonce's upcoming halftime performance at the Super Bowl would have Illuminati symbolism.

The Illuminati is a secret society that serves as the basis for a popular conspiracy theory that alleges that many of the world's leaders and celebrities are masterminding world events.

In the same blog post, Fawell said that the previous Super Bowl's halftime show, performed by Madonna, was satanic and influenced by the Illuminati. He also called Madonna a "narcissist skank with the crooked teeth."

In an interview with CNN, Fawell stood by his blog posts and the theories he espoused on them. He said that Jay-Z and Beyonce expressed their support for the Illuminati in their videos, and that singer Taylor Swift had as well.

In explaining his rationale that 7 World Trade Center didn't collapse on its own, he said, "There's no way that 1,500-degree jet fuel can melt steel that requires 2,500-degree temperatures to melt." He also acknowledged that he didn't expect any support from the national Republican Party apparatus.
The Illinois Republican Party did not respond to a request for comment.

Another Illinois Republican nominee for a House seat, neo-Nazi Arthur Jones, has been rejected by national Republicans and the state party for denying the Holocaust.

In a 2014 post, Fawell speculated that New York City was going to be destroyed in a false flag attack by the deep state in either the year 2016 or 2017.

"New York City is going to be destroyed in the biggest, baddest false flag attack ever made by any organization upon the American People in a Pearl Harbor redux," Fawell wrote. (False flag attacks are acts designed by perpetrators to look like they were carried out by other individuals or groups.)

He said that the attack would be made in an attempt to drag America into war, and that financial institutions were already withdrawing money from New York in preparation for the supposed attack.

In another post in 2014, he wrote that then-President Barack Obama created false flag attacks to shore up support for his foreign policy intervention against ISIS.

In addition to alleging conspiracies, Fawell used sexist and racist slurs against politicians.

In one 2013 post he called former Secretary of State Colin Powell an "Uncle Tom" and called former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton a "bitch" as well as a witch.

He also regularly called Obama "Barry Soetoro" and sometimes called him "Barry Goddamn Soetoro Barack Hussain (sic) Obama."

When Obama lived in Indonesia as a child he sometimes was known as Barry Soetoro, as Soetoro was his stepfather's last name. Many conspiracy theorists allege that Soetoro is his real last name and use it to argue that he was not born in the United States.

Great Read - #NotoriousRBG : The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg @NotoriousRBG

Featured in the critically acclaimed documentary RBG

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg never asked for fame—she has only tried to make the world a little better and a little freer. But nearly a half-century into her career, something funny happened to the octogenarian: she won the internet. Across America, people who weren’t even born when Ginsburg first made her name as a feminist pioneer are tattooing themselves with her face, setting her famously searing dissents to music, and making viral videos in tribute.

Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, inspired by the Tumblr that amused the Justice herself and brought to you by its founder and an award-winning feminist journalist, is more than just a love letter. It draws on intimate access to Ginsburg's family members, close friends, colleagues, and clerks, as well an interview with the Justice herself. An original hybrid of reported narrative, annotated dissents, rare archival photos and documents, and illustrations, the book tells a never-before-told story of an unusual and transformative woman who transcends generational divides. As the country struggles with the unfinished business of gender equality and civil rights, Ginsburg stands as a testament to how far we can come with a little chutzpah.

“The authors make this unassuming, most studious woman come pulsing to life. . . . Notorious RBG may be a playful project, but it asks to be read seriously. . . . That I responded so personally to it is a testimony to [its] storytelling and panache.”— Jennifer Senior, New York Times

Animal with #MS13 Admits Responsibility for Murder of 16-Year-Old Boy and Pleads Guilty to RICO Conspiracy Involving Murder

An MS-13 animal pleaded guilty yesterday in federal court in Boston to racketeering conspiracy involving the murder of a 16-year-old boy in East Boston. 

Jairo Perez, a/k/a “Seco,” 27, a Salvadoran national, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to conduct enterprise affairs through a pattern of racketeering activity, more commonly referred to as RICO or racketeering conspiracy. Perez admitted that his racketeering activity involved the Jan. 10, 2016, murder of a 16-year-old boy in East Boston.

Under the terms of the proposed plea agreement, Perez will be sentenced to 35 years in prison. At yesterday’s hearing, the Court accepted the defendant’s guilty plea but deferred acceptance of the plea agreement until the sentencing hearing. Perez will be subject to deportation proceedings upon completion of his sentence. U.S. District Court Judge F. Dennis Saylor IV scheduled sentencing for Sept. 11, 2018.

The investigation revealed that Perez was a member of MS-13’s Trece Loco Salvatrucha (TLS) clique. Evidence showed that on Jan. 10, 2016, Perez and other MS-13 members murdered a 16-year-old boy whom they believed to be a member of the rival 18th Street gang. The victim was stabbed and shot multiple times. A few days after the murder, Perez was caught on tape admitting to stabbing the victim multiple times, and he was arrested soon thereafter. Perez was also recorded burying the knives used to murder the victim in a park on Deer Island in Winthrop.

After a multi-year investigation, Perez was one of dozens of alleged leaders, members, and associates of MS-13 named in a superseding indictment unsealed in January 2016 that targeted MS-13’s criminal activities in Massachusetts. Perez is the 48th defendant to be convicted as part of that ongoing prosecution by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Massachusetts. To date, all eight defendants who have gone to trial have been convicted, and 40 other defendants have pleaded guilty.

Owe Money to the #Mafia? #Mobsters Foreclose on Your Body, Not Your House, #OrganizedCrime Gambling is Here to Stay #OperationFreeRoll

On the same morning last week that Senate President Dominick Ruggerio mused on talk radio about a possible future with sports betting parlors dotting the state, James Petrella stood before a court magistrate and pleaded out to organized criminal gambling.

Ruggerio’s remarks came a day after the U.S. Supreme Court legalized sports betting.

Petrella’s change of plea came two years after Rhode Island’s last big underworld sports-betting bust, when, in April 2016, the state police arrested 20 people — including two minor-league baseball players — in “Operation Free Roll” and charged them in a multi-million-dollar bookmaking conspiracy.

While state lawmakers rush to take advantage of the high court’s ruling — Gov. Gina Raimondo wagered on its decision and included $23.5 million in anticipated sports betting revenue in her new fiscal budget — law enforcement officials, a former underworld figure and others say don’t bet on illegal gambling disappearing entirely.

Magistrate John F. McBurney III says there was no talk of irony or of the high court’s decision last week when Petrella, 33, of Narragansett, appeared before him in Kent County Superior Court and pleaded no contest to what may soon become a legitimate Rhode Island pastime.

Prosecutors alleged that gamblers used Petrella’s co-owned restaurant, Portside, along with the Cozy Grill, in Warwick, owned by Thomas Pilderian, to place and settle bets. Proceeds of the operation, says state police Lt. Col. Joseph Philbin, went to “remnants” of the Patriarca crime family, which for decades used bookmaking to finance its operation.

McBurney, a former state senator from Pawtucket and one-time member of the state Lottery Commission, says it’s too early to tell if legal sports betting will cut “into the organized crime element” and he sees fewer gambling cases before him.

He says he hopes the state “goes all the way” and legalizes all forms of sports betting now rather than take the “piecemeal” approach it used with casino gambling, first approving video-slots and only years later actual table games at Twin River Casino, in Lincoln.

For decades “there has been a lot of wringing of hands” about gambling, and consequently millions of dollars lost in state revenue, McBurney says, as lawmakers moved too cautiously with gambling at Twin River, and the video-slot parlor at Newport Grand Casino. Now that sports gambling has arrived, it’s time to go all in, McBurney says: “Whatever we can do to maximize what the Supreme Court has decided, we should.”

One former Providence mob associate, now in the federal Witness Protection Program, says underworld bookmaking will survive legal sports betting because of an exclusive benefit it offers gamblers: betting on credit.

Illegal bookmakers allow — in fact, encourage — their customers to bet on credit, he says; a simple phone call and the bet is made without any cash changing hands. That won’t happen with legal sports gambling, where customers will have to put money up front first to wager.

Often times the underworld gambler is already in credit trouble: “These guys don’t have credit cards,” the former mob associate said. “So when you’re a bookie, you want these guys to lose. Then they’re playing on credit and then they owe you. That’s how the mob infiltrates a lot of it. They get you in a position where you have to borrow money to keep your business going. That’s how you get in trouble.

“The mob is different from a bank, which will foreclose on your house if you owe them,” he says. “The mob forecloses on your body.”

State and local police say they spent months investigating the bookmaking operations at the Cozy Grill and Portside. They listened in on phone conversations as more than a thousand bets were made on everything from Providence College basketball to NASCAR races.

The bets were then often transferred to two online sports betting websites, based in Central America.

Steven O’Donnell was the state police superintendent during “Operation Free Roll,” and in his earlier years worked undercover as a bookie.

Nationally illegal gambling is a $150-billion industry and “statewide it’s a huge underground economy,” O’Donnell says. “I don’t know if anyone could put a figure on it, but over the years we’ve handled multi-million dollar bookmaking operations to the small-time ones. Ninety-nine percent of the ones we do are tied to traditional mafia.”

O’Donnell says, “I don’t really see how you take the organized crime element out of bookmaking” particularly since it operates on credit, players don’t need to report their winnings for tax purposes and the General Assembly may restrict legal sports gambling to Twin River in Lincoln and the company’s new casino, under construction in Tiverton, leaving ample room for illegal gambling to thrive.

“It will all depend what kind of legislation comes out of this,” he says, and how fast. He notes it took years for the state to grapple with its medical marijuana program and the lucrative black market that spun from it.

While lawmakers debate how to implement legal sports betting and professional leagues wrestle with how to protect the integrity of their games, O’Donnell wonders what college athletes will be told.

For years, O’Donnell says he visited Providence College, Bryant University and even the New England Patriots speaking with athletes about what area bars and restaurants to avoid and explaining how bookmaking works.

“What do you tell student athletes now that sports betting is legal?”

James Petrella was the last of the 20 suspects in “Operation Free Roll” to plead no contest to the charges, court records show. None went to prison. Petrella, like most of the others, received a suspended sentence and probation. His total fines came to $2,259.25
