CONNECTION TO PIZZAGATE
The strange coincidence of James Comey's presence in an Iowa cornfield this July, the day before University of Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts disappeared, has interested me greatly. I already wrote a Voat post describing how animal and plant genome research was the common thread connecting Comey's tweets about Iowa cornfields, Elwood the giant gnome, the Iowa State University Campus and the University of Iowa where Mollie Tibbetts was enrolled in the psychology department.
I noted how the University of Iowa psychology department was the subject of a raid by a radical animal rights group named the Animal Liberation Front in 2004. However, I have since discovered that the FBI has an obsessive interest in hunting down and eliminating the Animal Liberation Front, in particular, as well as other "eco-terrorist" groups. Could this be because animal abuse shares an intrinsic link with child abuse? (There are many scholarly articles documenting that animal abuse is an indicator for child abuse.)
Is the Deep State concerned that animal rights activists will uncover other crimes connected with academic animal experimentation?
Why were Robert Mueller's and James Comey's FBI so determined to eradicate "the green scare"? Were they afraid animal rights activists were getting too close to child abuse/trafficking centers?
ANIMAL LIBERATION FRONT'S 2004 RAID ON THE UNIVERSITY OF IOWA'S PSYCHOLOGY LABS
The ALF raided the University of Iowa, rescuing hundreds of lab animals at the Psychology Dept's Spence Lab and Seashore Hall and destroyed computers containing years of research. The ALF claimed responsibility for the attack and posted a video and comprehensive documentation about the raid, including the names of professors and the work they were involved in such as vivisection, electric shock treatments and drug addiction. The ALF stated that the raid was carried out to halt the barbaric research of the UI Psychology Department’s 7 primary animal researchers and details the cruel and abusive testing carried out on lab animals if you have the stomach to read it here.
The raid was the largest and most successful operation of its kind, and horrified academics condemned the raid in the strongest possible terms.
FBI HEAVILY INVESTED IN ELIMINATING ANIMAL LIBERATION FRONT
Interestingly, in May, 2004, a few months before the UI raid, John Lewis, FBI Deputy Assistant Director of the FBI testified before the Senate on the ALF and said the following:
"In recent years, the Animal Liberation Front and the Earth Liberation Front have become the most active criminal extremist elements in the United States."
"In conclusion, the FBI has made the prevention and investigation of animal rights extremists/eco-terrorism matters a domestic terrorism investigative priority. The FBI and all of our federal, state and local law enforcement partners will continue to strive to address the difficult and unique challenges posed by animal rights extremists and eco-terrorists. Despite the continued focus on international terrorism, we in the FBI remain fully cognizant of the full range of threats that confront the United States."
Nonetheless, despite their aggressive stance, the FBI was unable to uncover any leads in the Iowa University raid, and six years after the raid, the FBI admitted that their investigation had stalled and had produced no conviction even though the case was said to be "a priority for the FBI, which collaborated with federal prosecutors, UI police and the Joint Terrorism Task Force. Hundreds of interviews were conducted, and investigators collected and analyzed extensive amounts of evidence."
Although the active part of the investigation was concluded the 2010 article above states there were still ongoing investigations into other potential criminal activities that came to light during the course of the investigation.
In 2005, a year later, the ALF was included in a United States Department of Homeland Security planning document listing a number of domestic terrorist threats on which the U.S. government expected to focus resources. Operation Backfire was a multi-agency criminal investigation, led by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), into destructive acts in the name of animal rights and environmental causes in the United States described as eco-terrorism by the FBI/
Environmental activists coined the term "Green Scare" to refer to legal action by the US government against the radical environmental movement. The FBI and the government had classified eco-terrorism as the No. 1 domestic terrorism threat — even though so-called eco-terrorism crimes in the United States were rare and never fatal.
A Vermont Law Review article points out that,
This disproportionate, heavy-handed government crackdown on the animal-rights and environmental movements, and the reckless use of the word “terrorism,” is the result of a carefully coordinated political campaign by corporations and the politicians who represent them.
This eye-opening article explains how Robert Mueller instructed the American public that animal activists in Vail who were indicted for property damage in their attempt to rescue a lynx were exceedingly dangerous terrorists: “Terrorism is terrorism—no matter what the motive,” said FBI director Robert Mueller at a press conference. “The FBI is committed to protecting Americans from all crime and all terrorism . . . .” Meanwhile, though, other perpetrators of domestic violence were not labelled as terrorists.
A 2012 Daily Caller article stated that three of the seven fugitives in the “domestic terror” category of the FBI’s Most Wanted list were affiliated with the Animal Liberation Front.
In 2016, while Comey was FBI Director, the FBI announced it would start tracking cases of animal cruelty. It was widely reported this would make animal abuse a federal crime, but the policy only changed the way the FBI collected and report data about crimes against animals.
UNIVERSITY OF IOWA ACCUSED OF 244 ANIMAL DEATHS BY ANIMAL RIGHTS GROUP IN MAY, 2018
Despite the University of Iowa's strong public assurances after the 2004 ALF raid that animals were being treated humanely, SAEN, an animal rights organization, recently accused the University of causing the deaths of 244 animals by negligence and abuse in 2016 and 2017 and demanded an investigation.
SAEN's attention was focused on the University of Iowa after a goat escaped from the university lab facility where it was leading the university and law enforcement on a 10-day chase.
The goat, which was part of orthopedic injuries experimentation, was euthanized upon capture to the dismay of animal-rights groups keeping tabs on the goat search. The USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service investigated the goat's treatment following a complaint by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and cited the university for mishandling the animal.
Did this public attention on the University of Iowa in May bring former FBI chief James Comey to Iowa so he could prevent further snooping around by animal rights activists into genetic experimentation by the University of Iowa and Iowa State University? Like Elwood the Gnome, the guardian of Reiman Garden, was Comey called to Iowa to fulfill the legendary mandate of gnomes to "Protect the Garden"? Was Mollie Tibbetts possibly a whistle blower on animal abuse in the University of Iowa psychology department? Was an example made of Mollie to deter other whistle blowers from exposing the activities of the mad genome scientists in Iowa?
UPDATE: I just read on True Pundit that a group of conservative Republicans are introducing legislation to end abusive government testing of animals. https://truepundit.com/republicans-are-stepping-up-to-the-plate-to-stop-wasteful-spending-of-taxpayer-money-on-animal-testing/
There is a group called White Coat Waste Project which is dedicated to end govt-funded animal experiments. https://blog.whitecoatwaste.org
Rep Matt Gaetz tweeted about the EPA's bizarre, cruel and wasteful animal testing on July 19 of this year:
The @EPA wasteful spending on misleading and bizarre animal testing is out of control. The American people’s #taxdollars should not be spent on torturing animals: forcing them to eat lard, electro-shocking them, and pumping truck exhaust into their noses.
