Outrageous railroading of truth-teller whom the liars don't like

Edgar Steele and family

On June 11, 2010, Idaho lawyer Edgar J. Steele was arrested on murder-for-hire charges. According to prosecutors, Mr. Steele hired his handyman Larry Fairfax to kill his wife Cyndi and his mother-in-law. Steele is an intelligent, educated man; Fairfax is a bankrupt failed logger who turned out to be a federal drug informant. The alleged plot is so preposterous that it would be laughed out of court if all the contradictions were presented. Prosecutors will likely cherry-pick the various pieces of 'evidence', with some claims being conveniently "forgotten" as they attempt to cover up the many mistakes resulting from Steele's enemies' failure to corroborate their stories.

The hypothetical killings were supposed to look like an "accident", a "car crash", so that Steele could receive an auto insurance payment of at least $100,000 with which to pay the hitman. But the plot involved two pipe bombs, targeting Steele's car as well as his wife's. The conspirators were to carry out a double murder by blowing up the wife's car, hoping that a bombed car would look like an "accident". Then they would try to make it look like a murder by staging a failed murder attempt, blowing up Steele's car - or leaving a bomb to be discovered - to give the impression that he was also targeted for murder and therefore didn't "accidentally" murder his wife and mother-in-law! The conspiracy to arrange the deal allegedly took place on June 9 and 10, 2010, yet the federal informant fitted a live 12-inch pipe bomb to the first car as early as May 30. Hence, the prosecution's main witness would need to be capable of time travel, or, at the very least, to have "psychic" powers that enabled him to see into the future.

Alternatively, there would necessarily exist a bizarre contradiction. The defendant would need to be stupid enough to arrange a pipe bomb plot in May, then forget all about that and negotiate a second "make it look like an accident" hit in June, pay the same hitman his travel expenses, and repeatedly say he had "no second thoughts" as if there had never been a previous attempt to kill his wife and mother-in-law. Yet at the same time the defendant is demonstrably smart enough to understand how his opponents had tried to smear him and turn his wife against him by leaving out a teddy bear that was a present for one of his female legal clients, how they had engineered an audio file by digitally splicing together his spoken words and covering up the editing by raising the noise floor and re-recording via a microphone and speakers, and how prosecutors hoped to authenticate this 'evidence' against him by tricking his wife into saying that it was him speaking. The prosecution might surmise that Steele's ruptured ascending aortic aneurysm of November 2009 caused him to develop into a split personality: one being just like the original Edgar Steele with a first-class legal mind, and the other being that of a complete lunatic. Occam's Razor dictates that the real Steele is likely to be the real Steele, and the "loony Steele" is a fictitious construct of his enemies.

Steele describes himself as "exceedingly politically incorrect", and has spoken the truth about many lies and deceptions promoted by the powers that be. He selflessly chose to risk his life and liberty by representing "hopeless" politically incorrect clients whom the government and the powerful hoped to see railroaded into prison. Even though he was keenly aware that such actions would bring him into their sights and could result in him taking the place of the very people he represented, he knew that someone had to do the job. He loved his wife and family, and, as a lawyer, had accumulated plenty of money such as stashes of silver - until it was seized by the Feds. And he was a smart investor. Between summer 2005 and April 2006, for example, he made $150,000 profit by refinancing his house mortgage and investing $100,000 in gold, silver and palladium stocks. He would not have killed his beloved wife, deprived his children of their mother, and risked the likely prospect of the remainder of his life in jail for double first-degree murder, merely for the remote possibility of the auto accident insurance paying out for an "accidentally" blown up car and potentially leaving him with a small surplus after the hitman had received his $100,000 cut. Thus, Edgar Steele had absolutely zero motive to kill his wife and mother-in-law, but his enemies had very strong motives to attempt to destroy him.

Within a week or two of Steele's arrest, it was increasingly evident that the attempts to concoct charges against him had been botched. When his wife listened to the tapes that allegedly 'prove' he conspired to kill her, she noticed that there was no inflection in his voice and the background noise changed when he was supposedly talking about a "murder-for-hire" plot. More Keystone Kops than Mission Impossible. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) admitted to doctoring audio footage from radio exchanges with the Gaza Freedom Flotilla. Israel, a frequent target of Steele's criticism, broadcast the edited Freedom Flotilla communications on June 4, 2010, a mere five to six days prior to the FBI's monitoring of transmissions purportedly originating from Edgar Steele and the federal informant. And in July 2010, audio experts said that tapes of an alleged "racist rant" by Mel Gibson had been tampered with. The tapes "had been edited to possibly remove words or piece together phrases". Forensic audio expert Arlo West said he had found "gaps, transients and fades". The voices were on separate tracks, allowing the editors to mix the voices. On one segment there was a 60 Hz hum when Gibson was speaking, which faded down as if someone was mixing tracks and adjusting the volume, before Oksana Grigorieva's voice came in. Although Gibson had previously spoken some truth about Jews being responsible for wars, his belligerent, drunken behavior proved very useful to Israel in helping to dismiss any criticism of Zionism as "anti-Semitic". Israel had the motive and the means to doctor and propagate the Gibson tapes.

A former case officer (katsa) in Israel's notorious Mossad secret service revealed how the Mossad's LAP (Lohamah Psichlogit) Department, responsible for disinformation and psychological warfare, planted a "Trojan" transmitter on the top floor of a five-story building in Tripoli. An IDF navy ship out at sea transmitted misleading pre-recorded audio that could only be picked up by the Trojan relay. The Trojan then broadcast those messages to be intercepted by American and British listening stations, whose operators would imagine they had picked up "genuine" transmissions originating from the Libyans, and showing Libya to be a sponsor of terrorism. And naturally, this "intelligence" was corroborated by information provided by the Mossad. Thus, Reagan was tricked into bombing Libya in April 1986.

At a July 28 hearing where Steele pleaded not guilty to four new charges, his wife Cyndi joined his supporters in court. Visitors to the hearing and Steele family members convened afterwards at a nearby private residence, and Mrs. Steele said how much she appreciated all of the financial (and moral) support. Thus, the "plot" has so little credibility that the "victim" wants to exonerate the prime "conspirator".

The following timeline includes real and alleged events. A concise version has been added, so that the collection of contradictions in the official story becomes very evident.

Edgar Steele Denied Defense, Framed on All Counts

by James Buchanan

A recent news article reports “A North Idaho lawyer accused of plotting to to kill his wife and mother-in-law failed to convince a federal jury Thursday that he was the victim of a government conspiracy to silence him. The jury of 11 women and 1 man convicted Edgar Steele on all four counts, which alleged he’d hired a hitman-turned-FBI-informant to kill his wife, Cyndi Steele, and mother-in-law. Federal agents foiled the plan, though a pipe bomb later was found attached to Cyndi Steele’s sport utility vehicle. Cyndi Steele, however, stood by her husband throughout the case. ‘He’s innocent,’ an emotional Cyndi Steele said after the verdict was read. ‘He did not do this, and we have the proof, which was denied in the courtroom.’ ”

One of the biggest fears of Edgar Steele’s supporters was that a federal judge would simply rule out all evidence and testimony from witnesses and any expert testimonial that pointed out flaws in the alleged government recordings of Steele and Fairfax.

The Feds claimed to have a tape of Edgar Steele talking with Larry Fairfax about murdering his wife and his mother in law. The murders for hire reportedly depended on money from an insurance policy according to Larry Fairfax. The Steeles however had canceled their insurance policies so the very basis of the murder plot did not even exist.

Edgar’s wife, Cyndi Steele heard the government tapes and observed that whenever her husband was allegedly talking about the murder plot the background noise would change and that there was no inflection in Edgar’s voice.

Edgar Steele’s defense team hired audio experts to analyze the government tapes and to find out anomalies. The judge arbitrarily denied use of the expert testimony questioning the tapes.

The only thing the jury got to hear were the (fabricated) tapes of Edgar Steele and Larry Fairfax. The judge told them that Larry Fairfax was a reliable, paid FBI informant, leaving out little details like the strong possibility of Fairfax stealing a large stash of silver from the Steeles. Fairfax placed a live bomb on Cyndi Steele’s car, which resulted in Fairfax being locked up for most of the last year. I wonder if the jury knew about that detail.

Steele was probably allowed to deny the charges, much like a defendant in the Soviet purge trials of the 1930s, but with no evidence allowed on his behalf and the government fabricating evidence against him, his situation was bleak.

Edgar Steele had just survived a ruptured aorta in November of 2009. His wife was the only person helping to take care of him at his home. Plotting to kill his wife would have been the equivalent of an invalid plotting to kill his nurse.

Both Edgar Steele’s wife and mother-in-law believe that Edgar has been framed. Larry Fairfax had been spying on the Steeles, posing as a handyman for six months. He apparently didn’t find any evidence of any illegal behavior, but he apparently did discover a large quantity of silver stashed at the Steeles’ home. (He may even have built some of the hiding places for the silver as a handyman.)

According to a letter from Edgar Steele, Larry Fairfax stole the silver from the Steele’s home and then put car bombs on both of the Steele’s cars to try to kill both of them. When that murder attempt failed, Fairfax then told his FBI handlers that Steele was plotting to kill his wife and mother-in-law. Someone with considerable audio expertise must have helped Fairfax fake the tapes. Curiously, Israel fabricated a fake audio that they tried to use to discredit the peace flotilla that they attacked a year ago. (Steele frequently criticized Israel in his columns.) Fairfax had just gone bankrupt in April of 2010 as his logging business had failed so Fairfax was in dire financial straits and had a very strong motive to commit a very large theft.

A federal judge however can rule out all of that circumstantial evidence pointing to Edgar Steele’s innocence which gives the government a tremendous edge especially when they’ve done the framing. ... 23670.html
