The Twin Peaks Massacre Coverup

This is the 114th day of the Twin Peaks Massacre coverup. It is worth noting for two lamentable reasons.

First, the degree to which government officials have been uncooperative, obstructive and evasive about the Massacre is prima facie evidence that there is an official coverup. There was no probable cause to believe that most of the 177, or 182, or so, people arrested that day were guilty of “engaging in organized criminal activity.” There is probable cause to believe that police murdered at least six men and may have attempted to murder 20 more.

The second reason to note the ongoing coverup is the apparent disappearance of what just a few years ago was being called “the investigative impulse” in American journalism. The investigative impulse began, according to Jon Marshall of Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism, “in the 1600s, when Enlightenment philosophers taught that ‘people have a right to question their leaders.’”

To its inerasable shame, the Waco Tribune-Herald has not noticed the coverup. To its credit, the Houston Chronicle has. “Any time a prosecutor’s office or a politician does not want people talking about something, one should raise a red flag and insist we talk about it,” a law professor named Patrick Metze told the Chronicle this morning. “They may say it is to protect the investigation, but they are protecting themselves from whatever it is that they don’t want us to see or know about.” You can read the entire Chronicle piece here.

Based on information supplied by various sources who believe their lives, careers and pensions are in actual danger and who have spoken with The Aging Rebel under conditions of either “off the record” or “deep background,” this page will continue to report that the Twin Peaks Massacre was the result of a contrived and avoidable confrontation between members of the Cossacks Motorcycle Club and the Bandidos Motorcycle Club. The Aging Rebel believes that the confrontation was engineered by and anticipated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; the Texas Department of Public Safety and a Waco area law enforcement agency that was not the Waco Police Department. The Aging Rebel also believes that these police agencies, and possibly the Waco Police Department, began physically preparing for an armed confrontation to include the use of deadly force in the Twin Peaks restaurant parking lot at or before dawn on May 17. And finally, this page believes the Massacre was captured in its entirety by at least 44 video cameras.

Investigating This Mess

The Associated Press defines information gained “off the record” as information that “cannot be used for publication.” The same news agency and most publications define “deep background” as information that “can be used but without attribution. The source does not want to be identified in any way, even on condition of anonymity.” Generally, information gained off the record can only be used after being substantiated by additional independent sources. Off the record information tells reporters where to llok and what to look for.

Off the record information about federal police actions is often substantiated by filing Freedom of Information Act requests with, for example, the Disclosure Division of the ATF. The information requests involving bikers are almost routinely denied on the grounds of either what the FOIA Act calls “Exemption Seven” or one of three “Exclusions.”

The exempt information is defined as, “Certain types of information compiled for law enforcement purposes.” The three exclusions are: One, “Subject of a criminal investigation or proceeding is unaware of the existence of records concerning the pending investigation or proceeding and disclosure of such records would interfere with the investigation or proceeding;” two, “Informant records maintained by a criminal law enforcement agency and the individual’s status as an informant is not known; and three, “Existence of FBI foreign intelligence, counterintelligence or international terrorism records are classified fact.”

Exclusion three is one reason why motorcycle clubs are frequently described as “transnational gangs.”

Taken together, the exemption and exclusions explain why “gang investigations” are always classified as “ongoing” even when the newest information in those investigations is more than a decade old.

After a FOIA request is denied, large news gathering organizations and some private law firms have the means to bring suit in federal court to discover exempt and excluded information. The Aging Rebel does not have the resources to pursue such lawsuits at this time. This page is aware that many of its conclusions about what happened in Waco on May 17 are unsubstantiated sand have been described as “speculative.” As one 23-year-old reporter recently put it, “A blog favorable to motorcycle clubs citing an undisclosed source…is not credible.”

Credible or not, the authorities in Texas have been blatantly manipulating public opinion since the day of the Massacre and the Department of Justice has, as yet, not chosen to intervene. One plausible explanation for that inaction is that the Department of Justice has been involved since sometime before May 1.

The Aging Rebel stands by its coverage of the Waco Twin Peaks Massacre and will continue to pursue the story.

    The charade continues…

    “Attorneys for the bikers — as Susan Criss, of Galveston; and Mai Nguyen, of Dallas, did Wednesday — have been able to get Texas Department of Public Safety Lt. Steven Schwartz to testify that he doesn’t know if their clients committed a crime, or, in some instances, whether they had weapons with them.

    He said they were wearing colors of motorcycle support groups and were aware of the bad blood brewing between the Bandidos and Cossacks.

    Schwartz agreed with the attorneys that a person’s mere presence at the scene of a crime does not make someone guilty and told them he had no evidence that they conspired before May 17 to take part in the nation’s bloodiest biker war.”

    I attended the 4’th Wave in Austin at the Capitol on September 26 (2015). I did not count, but estimated that there were about 100 in attendance. There should have been thousands. Any of you that think this does not affect you are wrong. This has already reached into your lives and I am telling you, if you are thinking, ” I do not know any of these people…” well… soon you will. Yes, soon you will be the person that is eating at a restaurant or riding a motorcycle and suddenly you are a member of a criminal organization and being charged as such because you were on a motorcycle. Or because you go to a Christian church or identify as a Christian or a pagan or a this or a that…

    If I was in town on May 17, 2015, and I decided to go check out the food at Twin Peaks that day, I would still be in jail. It would be a less burden on my family to lose my contributions than to pay for my release and I am all about my family. So I would still be in jail to this day, based upon our respective situation.

    The biker assassinations in Waco were because the Cossacks MC were or are doing private duty border patrol for ranchers in Texas and they’ve been interfering with the human and drug trafficking profits there. The people in our government being bribed to get that ‘product’ across are the ones responsible for the Waco incident.

    So, what is transpiring here is this: The people that were charged with organized crime simply for being at Twin Peaks and riding a motorcycle is just an intimidation tactic from those same powers. “To destroy individuals and families when you get in our way…” Snipers will wound an enemy to slow down a larger number of enemy… concentration will be broken from the enemy’s objective and will be diverted to care for the wounded soldier. This will allow for more enemy casualties and a decrease in their morale and their progression to their objective.

    When no one does anything, evil succeeds. When “that is not my business”, their evil business thrives and kills people. When no one is willing to risk themselves or to risk the ‘security’ of their family… then evil wins and you are become slaves. And “the masters” will do with you as they will. I think some history lessons are in order. As I said, I am all about my family… But I am MORE about what is RIGHT. And I would be doing them an injustice to stick my head in the sand.

    I have seen journalistic accounts of former employees of news networks that state how they were ‘bribed’ to suppress certain stories. I would expect that this also comes into play here as to why there is not anything on any of the major news outlets about this travesty of justice, short of the initial misrepresentation of it as a biker shootout as opposed to a biker massacre perpetrated by the ‘authorities’.

    If I have tagged you, I have some hopes that you will read all of this and possibly realize the actual threat or at the very least that you will realize the injustice that is coming down on your fellow humans, your fellow Americans…. and that you will share this with someone that you think may care, even if you do not care enough to put yourself on their lists. This will discourage the violence that they visit upon us: that is the only way we win minus violence is for their lists to show them the math of opposition.

    Bad bikers doing good stuff…

    But for the grace of God any of these folks could have been in Waco May 17.

  4. Francis Says:

    Waco is, “a city where a district judge and district attorney are former law partners, the mayor is the son of a former mayor, and the sheriff’s brother is the district attorney’s chief investigator.”

    To reiterate; the bikers didn’t injure one woman, child or police person, yet SWAT had a “field day” once again in Waco, Texas. You may recall that U.S., federal, state and local authorities killed dozens of women and children, and then attempted to cover up a previous massacre in Waco, Texas.

    The United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland has had several inquiries into these matters and it’s only a matter of time before these incidents will be investigated by an International tribunal, not the “ATF” or FBI, DHS,NSA, DOD, CIA, SS, DEA, DOJ, etc, etc, etc.

    BAD things can only happen when people are not communicating!!
    America is not the only country in the world !!
    Third party INVOLVEMENT is evident all over the Biker Community!!
    Wake up and smell the coffee people!!!
    “when the Law Makers are the Law Breakers- there is no Justice!! Just Us!!

    It’s pretty hard to turn over a bullet when it’s in the shoulder joint and surgeons both in Waco and Longview said it would do more damage to remove it than leave it. There are pics of him seated on a guardrail at Twin Peaks. Like I saw before, either WPD is saying DPS screwed up, they’re lying, or he waved some magic dust and disappeared when they were arresting everyone. I’m thinking it’s the second one myself, especially since he was in the same hospital as all others who got shot and had a WPD guy guarding his door until he was discharged.

  7. Lee Says:

    If I was Spaz and had a cop bullet in my arm, I would have turned it over to my attorney and had a ballistic test done on it and if it was a cop bullet, start a lawsuit against LE.
    If it was another bikers bullet I’d let it slide to keep the story going that cops did all the shooting.
