THIS IS JUSTICE?
EDGAR STEELE MURDER-FOR-HIRE CASE –
ANY REASONABLE DOUBTS LURKING HERE?

by Val Koinen
December 9, 2010



I’ve been doing quite a lot of reading about the Edgar Steele case lately (the North Idaho murder-for-hire case in which attorney Steele is accused of plotting with and hiring his neighbor Larry Fairfax to kill his wife and her mother). I wouldn’t call it research. Just browsing news reports and blogs along with statements made by his wife Cyndi Steele, the FBI, the Federal prosecuting attorney, judges, and of course the “lead actor” in this mess, would-be car bomber Larry Fairfax (“Larry the plumber;” the Steele’s “hillbilly handyman”).

As a result, I have not only learned some things; I have developed a number of impressions, questions, suspicions, and “reasonable doubts.”

Here’s what we seem to have so far –

On the “you’re guilty as hell, you scheming, plotting, politically incorrect, murder-for-hire guy” side (a rather short and shaky list if you ask me):

(1) We have the bankrupt, long-time FBI snoop and “confidential informant,” desperate-for-money, known liar and thief, and confessed pipe bomber Larry Fairfax saying that Edgar Steele plotted with him and hired him to kill his (Steele’s) wife and mother-in-law (Mr. Steele being a long-time attorney in good standing, an upright member of the community, as far as known a loving husband and father, a good, solid citizen with no criminal record whatsoever, and a U.S. Coast Guard veteran).

(2) And more than that – Fairfax says he has audio tapes to prove it (recordings which were allegedly made with the complicity of the FBI) – never mind that Edgar Steele denies saying the things on the tapes that have to do with a murder plot and that Cyndi Steele says she has heard those tapes and they are “untrustworthy” because of variances in background noise and a lack of characteristic vocal inflections every time her husband is supposed to be saying something about the murder plot (as though the tapes have been cobbled together – synthesized – probably using Mr. Steele’s utterances taken from his many readily available speeches).

On the “whoa, wait just a minute,” healthy-skepticism side (a long and continually growing list):

(1) Back in November 2009 then 64-year-old Edgar Steele very nearly died from a ruptured ascending aortic aneurism, and that was followed by at least one more aneurism and other serious medical problems over the ensuing months – hardly a condition in which one would be plotting multiple murders on multiple occasions over a prolonged period of time as described by Fairfax, it seems to me. (Actually, if he is guilty of the things he is accused of, Steele would have been working on these murder plots during exactly the same time period when he was convalescing, enduring new medical issues and surgeries, and being nursed back to health by his wife, the very woman he is accused of wanting to murder. Go figure.)

(2) It has been reported that Fairfax stole some $45,000 worth of silver coins from Steele’s residential and horse-ranch property, and no doubt knew Steele would discover the loss and would know who the thief was.

(3) That, together with Fairfax’s recent bankruptcy (debts of some $638,000.), imminent risk of losing his home to foreclosure, and desperation for cash; could certainly have provided ample motivation for him, as some have speculated, to decide to steal the silver and murder the Steeles.

(4) I have seen some references to the Jewish Anti-Defamation League (ADL) in connection with this case (in a letter to a friend Steele said the ADL “was quoted extensively in the government’s opening papers in court”). If one is inclined to consider the possibility that Edgar Steele is being “set up” on these charges – framed – it would be pretty hard to ignore any involvement or participation on the part of the ADL. They are surely no friends of Edgar Steele, who was highly critical of them and their operations on any number of occasions in his past writings and speeches. Also noteworthy in this regard is the fact that the ADL would probably have had “tribally facilitated” access to the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) and the Mossad, both of which have the technology and wherewithal to simulate voice recordings (the IDF has admitted to doing that very kind of thing at about the same time the Steele case broke, by doctoring audio recordings from radio exchanges with the “Gaza Freedom Flotilla”).

(5) Sometime in May, 2010, according to Cyndi Steele, Fairfax borrowed Edgar Steele’s pickup truck and swapped-out the nearly new tires (stole them and replaced them with his more worn tires). What a guy!

(6) Fairfax’s descriptions of the murder-for-hire plot are complicated, have included a number of discrepancies and contradictions, and in some particulars seem to have changed over time. The time-line over the most critical period of events is therefore very important:

-Nov. 21, 2009: Edgar Steele nearly dies from a ruptured aortic aneurism (he is hospitalized for an extended period and has other related serious health problems over the next months).
-Late 2009: Fairfax says he had several discussions with Steele in which Steele mentioned people he would like to see killed (including his wife and mother-in-law).
-April 14, 2010: Fairfax declares bankruptcy.
-On or about May 28-30, 2010: Fairfax made two pipe bombs and attached one to Cyndi Steele’s vehicle.
-Around May 29 - 31: Cyndi Steele departs for Oregon to care for her mother, who is also in poor health.
-May 31: Fairfax, reportedly accompanied by cousin Jim Maher, traveled to Oregon.
-June 8 or 9: Fairfax informed FBI of supposed murder-for-hire plot.
-June 9: First of two supposed incriminating plotting
conversations with Steele; Fairfax may or may not have recorded the conversation.
-June 10: Supposedly recorded second conversation.
-June 11: FBI visits Cyndi Steele at her mother’s home in Oregon City, Oregon.
-June 11: Edgar Steele arrested at his home.
-Prior to June 15: Cyndi Steele drives back to Idaho.
-June 14: Steele arraignment postponed one day due to phony "white powder" event (white powder later identified as harmless calcium carbonate mailed by person(s) unknown to the federal courthouse in Coeur d'Alene, and to several federal facilities in western states).
-June 15: Edgar Steele arraignment. Just hours before that event, that morning, Cyndi Steele takes her vehicle to a shop for an oil change, and an employee finds the pipe bomb still attached to the frame of her SUV.
-June 15: Fairfax interviewed (interrogated) by Coeur d’Alene Idaho police and then arrested by U.S. Government.

(7) By his own admission, in late May 2010, Fairfax made two pipe bombs and attached one underneath the SUV usually driven by Cyndi Steele. Depending on which story we believe, he may or may not have attached the other one under Edgar Steele’s vehicle – in any case, if he did he must have removed it, and he eventually turned it over to the FBI.

(8) One version of the plot offered by Fairfax had it that the purpose of the bomb that was to be placed on Edgar Steele’s vehicle was to deflect suspicion from him. Steele was to detonate that bomb, making it look as though he too (and not just his wife) had been targeted. But just how would Steele have detonated that bomb safely and privately? By starting the vehicle and letting it run for several (or many) minutes or hours in his garage or driveway? Maybe in the middle of the night when there was no chance someone else would just happen to come upon the scene? Wouldn’t it be a little suspicious, and wouldn’t he expect to come under suspicion, if the bomb went off when he wasn’t in the vehicle or anywhere near it?

(9) At one point (in a bail hearing) Fairfax’s lawyer said in court that Fairfax had only planted the bomb on Cyndi Steele’s vehicle as a ruse to convince Edgar Steele he was complying with the plan. And I believe Fairfax himself told investigators at one point that he planted that bomb to convince Steele the plan was moving forward. (What plan was that – to have the bomb “wait” to go off magically at some unknowable time when both Cyndi Steele and her mother were in the car together, over in Oregon?) Remember – Fairfax said Mr. Steele wanted both his wife and her mother killed, and the FBI is claiming they have proof (on tape) that he plotted that very situation a couple weeks later (for the second time). But the bomb was placed on Mrs. Steele’s SUV when it was at her home in Idaho, and she had to drive about 450 miles to get to her mother’s home in Oregon. So that earlier car-bombing attempt is inconsistent with any plan to kill both women.

(10) Let’s not forget – this was later determined to be a large, real, “live” bomb packed with high explosives and equipped with a detonating fuse. Hardly the kind of thing you would build and attach to a vehicle just as a ruse to convince someone you were carrying out some hare-brained murder scheme. And another thing – are we to suppose that the government just accepted on Fairfax’s word, without a detailed examination of the way the bomb had been placed (wired and/or taped) on the chassis of Cyndi Steele’s vehicle and the opinion of a qualified expert, his explanation that he disabled the bomb he placed on her vehicle by taping the fuse in such a way that it would not burn through and detonate the bomb? (I’m not convinced that is how it would work, as a practical matter.) Is Fairfax really such an expert when it comes to car bombs and fuses? Are we to believe that explanation is what makes him the “good guy,” the one who saved Mrs. Steele’s life (as she was reportedly told by the FBI)?

(11) My personal opinion is that a much more likely story would be that Fairfax attached pipe bombs to both of the Steele’s vehicles in an attempt to kill them both, but he didn’t know what he was doing and neither one exploded. Then, concerned that they would be found intact and traced back to him, he removed the bomb from Edgar’s vehicle and went to Oregon to check on the bomb he had put on Cyndi’s vehicle but for some reason couldn’t find it and assumed it had fallen off. Then he belatedly concocted the ridiculous murder-for-hire plot involving the Steeles and the mother-in-law, went to the FBI, and arranged to get the doctored audio tapes made and into their hands.

(12) Sometime in early June (on the 8th or 9th), Fairfax went to the FBI and told them of the supposed murder-for-hire plot, but at that time he neglected to tell them he had already placed a pipe bomb underneath Cyndi Steele’s SUV and had already driven to Oregon ostensibly to check to see if the bomb was still on the vehicle. Later, he said the Oregon trip on May 31 was to check Cyndi Steele’s vehicle to see what happened to the bomb but he and/or his alleged accomplice Jim Maher didn’t see it and they assumed it had fallen off. (That in itself is a little hard to understand, considering that Fairfax himself had attached the bomb in the first place and knew exactly where it should be underneath the vehicle. Maybe that too was a lie and circumstances prevented them from actually looking for the bomb?)

(13) If, as initially described by Fairfax, the murder via an automobile crash was supposed to look like an accident so Steele could collect insurance, it is hard to understand how that could be accomplished with a pipe bomb – an explosive event such as that would never be considered “accidental” by any police or insurance investigator, and both Steele and Fairfax (dim-bulb though he may be) would have known that.

(14) Fairfax said early-on that Steele agreed to compensate him for the murders with a $25,000. initial payment to be followed by $100,000. more if he (Steele) was cleared of suspicion and if he received an anticipated life insurance settlement. But what Fairfax didn’t know was that there was no life insurance (an inconvenient fact divulged later by Cyndi Steele).

(15) The FBI says they have Edgar Steele on tape insisting the hit had to look like a car crash, and that both his wife and mother-in-law had to die, because he “did not want to take care of a paraplegic.” Now just think about that for a minute. What is the likelihood that the Fairfax gang could just go over to a heavily populated part of Oregon and follow Cyndi Steele and her mother along some road in their neighborhood, where the whole thing wouldn’t be witnessed by anybody, and then force them off the road in an “accident” and have any reason to expect that would kill them both? Even if the accident was triggered by a bomb that was magically set to go off at precisely the right moment?

(16) In any case, the bomb attached to Mrs. Steele’s vehicle in late May was apparently connected by a fuse to the exhaust system. Once again, if it had gone off before she left for Oregon or while she was enroute on that trip, how could that have killed her mother? How did Fairfax convince Steele he could kill both women with an explosion and car crash unless he had a way to trigger the explosion by remote control after Mrs. Steele had reached the Oregon destination when both women were in the vehicle – especially if he wasn’t there himself to do the deed? So far as I know Fairfax has never claimed that he told Steele his purpose for going to Oregon was to somehow trigger the bomb on Cyndi Steele’s vehicle at just the right time, although he has given a number of other reasons for the trip.

(17) Things continue to get all “tangled up” when we stop to think about the switch from a car-bomb to a rigged auto accident and when we consider the timeline. One has to wonder how Steele could have just forgotten about the earlier attempt and then, apparently without even mentioning it, start plotting days or weeks later to make a second attempt to kill his wife and mother-in-law. But we do have reports (allegations) that Steele said at the June 9 meeting, “…if the black Endeavor (his wife’s SUV) were to leave he guaranteed that his wife would be driving it.” Now keep in mind that at the time Cyndi Steele was still at her mother’s place in Oregon City, Oregon; whereas Edgar Steele and Fairfax were in north Idaho, and they were both still there the next day as well. Apparently, Fairfax was supposed to drive to Oregon later on Thursday, June 10, or overnight, and be in Oregon (more than 400 miles away) on Friday the 11th so he could stage the “accident” one way or the other. But of course he never made that trip.

(18) None of this makes sense. Maybe that’s because it’s not reality – because it’s just differing versions of a not-too-well-thought-out story concocted by Fairfax? Another huge discrepancy in Fairfax’s story-telling in my opinion: Fairfax was a long-time FBI “confidential informant.” He had no doubt been spying on Edgar Steele for months in that capacity. When he built and planted bombs in late May, it would almost certainly have been after any number of planning discussions with Steele, no doubt over many days, or weeks (assuming of course that his allegations about Steele’s involvement are true). Yet during that first phase of the drama he didn’t so much as go to the FBI and inform them of anything. And so, they made no effort to record any conversations between Fairfax and Steele as they did later. One has to wonder – why didn’t Fairfax tell the FBI about that earlier planning and that first attempt? Note that when he went to the FBI on June 9, or possibly, at the very earliest on June 8 – that time, it only took the FBI a few hours to start monitoring and recording planning conversations for that second attempt (according to the FBI’s account). That the same thing didn’t happen the first time around is just not believable to me; in fact, it is preposterous.

(19) At this point it all gets hopelessly confusing. It is really hard for me to understand how all this nonsense could possibly provide the authorities with a rationale for accepting Fairfax’s stories as a credible basis for charging Edgar Steele with anything. When Fairfax contacted the FBI on June 8 or 9, and then supposedly recorded incriminating conversations with Steele on June 9(?) and/or 10, he said the murders were planned for June 11 because Steele had an alibi for that day. But note that Cyndi Steele was already in Oregon, with the bomb under her car; and Fairfax had already made a trip to Oregon (May 31) to check on that bomb. Also, Fairfax’s reasons given for that trip to Oregon keep changing (no surprise there). At various times he has stated the trip was to assure Edgar Steele the plan was moving forward; to scout out Cyndi Steele’s mother’s residence etc.; to check to see if the bomb was still on the vehicle; and to check on Cyndi Steele having an affair (as he says Edgar Steele suspected) (right – he could expect to just drive up to the mother’s house and there would be clear evidence of Cyndi Steele having an affair). And I still can’t reconcile Steele’s supposed payment of $400. to cover Fairfax’s travel costs for the trip(s) to Oregon. Was that for the May 31 trip? Or was it for another trip following the June 9-10 meetings? Or both?

(20) It seems pretty clear to me now that the whole matter of including Edgar Steele’s mother-in-law in the murder-for-hire plot might just have been contrived so this would become an interstate crime and the Federal Department of Justice could get involved (FBI, federal prosecutors, federal courts and judges).

(21) In my view it is beyond just being ludicrous and incomprehensible – it is absolutely and totally irrational, to the point of being virtually impossible – that an educated and federal persecution-savvy (er---prosecution-savvy) attorney such as Edgar Steele would: (a) hire someone like Fairfax to commit a complex (actually, just about impossible) interstate double murder such as this on his behalf; (b) expect to receive accident insurance compensation for a bomb-caused crash; or (c) go out to his horse barn with Fairfax for two days running (June 9-10) and plan the murders (between discussions of handyman and farm-chore assignments) for a second time (following Fairfax’s bungled first attempt to do the dirty deed in late May); and to do that apparently without so much as a mention of the first (failed) effort.

(22) Apparently, as noted above, Fairfax did not tell the FBI anything about the bombs when he first contacted them about the murder-for-hire plotting. According to Cyndi Steele, an FBI agent told her they did not hear any reference to bombs on the tapes. But she says she heard the word “bomb” several times. If she is correct about that, and if the FBI actually knew about the bomb under her car; then they knowingly endangered her, her passengers at various times, and everyone else along her entire driving route after they learned about it. According to Cyndi Steele, they didn’t even tell her about the bomb when they visited her at her mother’s residence on June 11.

(23) As mentioned above, Cyndi Steele has been allowed to listen to two of the supposedly incriminating tapes. On those tapes, supposedly surreptitiously recorded by Fairfax during meetings (in one of Steele’s horse barns?) on June 9 and 10, the recorded discussions reportedly switch back and forth between Steele giving instructions about work to be done on his property and elements of the murder plot. Mrs. Steele has stated that whenever her husband started to discuss the plot, there were changes in background noise and his voice lost certain inflections she is well familiar with. So she told the attending FBI agent that those incriminating portions of the taped conversations were untrustworthy.

(24) According to Mrs. Steele, “It has been implied by the FBI that if I do not go along with what they want me to say, such as their view of the disputed tapes, they will cause problems for me. Every time that I have told the FBI that I did not trust those tapes, the agent becomes defensive and insists that they are authentic and his demeanor is overbearing and he insists that I should agree with him. This is witness tampering perpetrated by the U.S. Government.”

(25) Also according to Cyndi Steele, FBI agents have tried to intimidate her by telling her Fairfax is the “good guy” who tried to save her life, and they have insisted that her husband Edgar Steele is the “bad guy.” They have told Mrs. Steele what a horrible person her husband is.

(26) By the way, the FBI allowed Cyndi Steele to listen to two tapes, but they told her there is a third one but that she couldn’t listen to that one because it “isn’t ready yet.” Hmmmm. I wonder what the FBI has to do to that tape to make it “ready?” To my knowledge she never has been allowed to listen to that third tape.

(27) It seems noteworthy to me that, about the time Edgar Steele was arrested and as the story was breaking, the local press was a bit too eager to “cooperate” with the FBI and the prosecution by vilifying Edgar Steele for his social and political positions and his political incorrectness, thus painting him as the bad guy in the public mind. I don’t suppose that could be considered “poisoning the jury pool,” now could it?

(28) One thing I find a little odd is how the Federal prosecutor and judges seem to be really, really reluctant to treat Fairfax and Company too harshly. At one point last June, at a Fairfax hearing, Magistrate Candy Dale called her decision to keep Fairfax behind bars (by denying him bail) “very difficult.” (I have to wonder why she would hold that view or even have that thought, let alone express it in court, considering Fairfax’s confessed crimes and his duplicity, and considering also the fact that Edgar Steele was being held in jail without bail!) Then, the Federal prosecutor, Assistant U.S. Attorney Traci Whelan, chose to grossly undercharge Fairfax (in my opinion), just charging him with “possession of an unregistered firearm and making a firearm in violation of the National Firearms Act.” I just can’t quite understand why he was not charged with the same or equivalent, much more serious crimes as Edgar Steele (for example, something like “use of interstate commerce to facilitate murder for hire;” “use of explosive material to commit a federal felony;” and “possession of a destructive device in relation to a crime of violence”). (Oh, well, maybe the State of Idaho will step up and charge him with attempted murder after this federal fiasco runs it course?) And then, as if to add insult to injury, Ms. Whelan offers Fairfax a plea-bargain deal that could get him as little as 18 months in prison when he is sentenced later this month. And lastly, to top it all off, the Feds have so far refused to arrest or charge supposed accomplice Jim Maher and any other of Fairfax’s accomplices still out there (at one time the FBI indicated to Cyndi Steele that there could be more than one of them). To me, none of this is even remotely understandable, and I think we the people should demand to know why the government has taken the positions it has.

(29) U.S. Attorney Traci Whelan would seem to spare no effort to prevent Cyndi Steele from saying (or even thinking) anything positive about her husband. When Edgar Steele gave some good (albeit emphatic and perhaps a little stern) husbandly and family-attorney-in-fact advisement to his wife and son in telephone conversations shortly after his arrest, Whelan had Steele held without bail and then piled on an additional felony charge (witness tampering). When Edgar Steele mailed a card to his daughter which contained a loving and reassuring message Whelan says was probably intended for his wife (whose birthday was July 29, about the same time), Whelan was all over Mr. Steele for violating the no-contact order. When Cyndi Steele and her mother filed affidavits in order to assert their “victim’s rights” prior to the governments’ acceptance of the sweetheart-deal plea bargain from Fairfax, Whelan derided the affidavits as just being speculation, and even questioned if the women wrote the affidavits themselves (as though there would be something wrong, or illegal, in getting an attorney to help draft the language for a legal instrument to be submitted to the court) (isn’t that what lawyers are for?). Whelan even went so far as to say she anticipates “an investigation into how the affidavits came to be drafted.” She also said the documents (affidavits) contain “statements set up to bolster Mr. Steele’s defense.” And just what in the world is wrong with that? After all, virtually everything the Feds say and do is meant to “bolster” their prosecution of Edgar Steele and their contention that he is guilty. And it gets worse. At the Fairfax plea hearing itself, U.S. District Court Judge B. Lynn Winmill declined to entertain Mrs. Steele’s request that the hearing be postponed so tougher penalties could be imposed, noting Cyndi Steel had filed her request that morning despite knowing of the hearing for two weeks. That was her reason? Was a legally defined deadline missed? If so, so be it (but why then didn’t she say so?). But if not, should the short “lead-time” afforded by Mrs. Steele’s last minute filing constitute a proper basis for denying the victim’s requests? Winmill also said, “I have to question either the motive or the sincerity of their request.” Well I read the affidavits and I saw nothing at all wrong, or suspicious, about the motivation or sincerity; and again, I would question if that is a sufficient basis for rejecting the several very good points made in the affidavits. Certainly, to my way of thinking, there is at least the appearance of impropriety in all this. It just seems to me that a reasonable person might get the impression that the FBI, the prosecution and the courts are, whether knowingly and deliberately or not, in effect conspiring to deprive Cyndi Steele of her civil rights by working together to intimidate her into not trying to do anything to help her husband.

(30) Meanwhile, in spite of the government’s attitude toward Cyndi Steele, and their kid-gloves treatment of Fairfax and his reported accomplice Maher; they have no problem and spare no effort ensuring that Edgar Steele is held in virtual solitary confinement, without bail, with no assets with which to mount a proper defense, and under a (recently just partially lifted) no-contact order that prevents him from discussing his case with his wife.

(31) Following Edgar Steele’s arrest on June 11, the FBI apparently tore portions of the Steele’s house apart (walls, floorboards) in search of precious metals he was known to have hidden. Reports are that the FBI took a considerable quantity of silver (and gold?) (the Steele’s “life savings”) plus other valuable property, thus depriving Steele of the assets he needs to mount a proper defense.

(32) The FBI and prosecution have tried mightily to come up with a motive – any motive – for Edgar Steele to want to murder his wife and mother in law (especially since Cyndi Steele has said there was no life insurance coverage). At one point after Edgar’s arrest they found a boxed teddy bear in the Steele’s house, with a note that it was for his “Ukrainian girlfriends.” They deliberately opened the box and left the “gift” for Mrs. Steele to find, apparently hoping to make her think it might indicate some untoward (illicit) behavior on Mr. Steele’s part (in his condition, considering the medication he was no doubt taking?). But they didn’t know that this was simply a gift intended for one or more of Mr. Steele’s female Ukrainian clients, which he often referred to as his “Ukrainian girlfriends” (a completely innocent thing, not at all surprising or upsetting to Mrs. Steele). Then, later, according to Mrs. Steele, the FBI unsuccessfully tried to coerce her into admitting an involvement in an affair (they said they had photos, but they didn’t, of course). Once again, I would think that is much worse “witness tampering” or intimidation that anything Edgar Steele said in his June 13 telephone conversations with his son and wife.

(33) As I recall, the local press once again came through and “aided and abetted” the government’s perfidy by giving the impression in its reporting that Edgar Steele did in fact have a “real” “Ukrainian girlfriend.”

(34) While I haven’t as yet seen any definitive evidence of wrongdoing on the part of upper echelons of the U.S. government in this case, Edgar Steele in telephone calls to his son and wife from jail, not long after his arrest, did mention to them that he had learned there is involvement in the effort to prosecute him at the “highest levels” of the Attorney General’s office. So, considering that Barack Obama and Eric Holder are both Negroid, and considering Mr. Steele’s often expressed and quite proper but politically-incorrect concerns for his fellow White people, and some comparatively non-complimentary (albeit true and accurate) things he has said in the past about the nature of black people; I don’t think we can automatically dismiss the possibility of motivation for his arrest, and even the possibility of his being set up, coming from high levels of the U.S. government.

(35) More possible motive for a frame-up: It has been reported that Edgar Steele had been working on a book focused on Jewish and/or Israeli involvement in human trafficking – sex trafficking, in particular. It could be that he was prepared to expose some very serious wrongdoing by some very important people. It seems to me that could be real motivation for Jews/Israelis/Zionists/ZOG to want to put Steele out of commission.

(36) It is now believed by some that Fairfax, as a Federal informant, had for many months been nosing around the Steele’s place trying to turn up some wrongdoing that the U.S. Government could use to prosecute Steele for something (because they didn’t like his politically incorrect positions on some issues and were “out to get him”). If that is the case, the effort failed. But (just speculating, now) could such an “anti-Steele” position on the part of the U.S. Government be what first put thoughts into Fairfax’s head that eventually led to his planning and committing his crimes? (Assuming, of course, that he hasn’t been acting at the direction of the government all along.)

(37) Things just keep getting “weirder and weirder.” It has recently been disclosed that
Fairfax’s alleged accomplice Jim Maher, another neighbor in Steele’s residential Sagle/Talache Idaho area, is none other than the brother of nationally prominent comedian and talk-show host Bill Maher; and it is even reported that Larry Fairfax is a cousin of the Maher brothers. While it is admittedly small evidence of motivation, it should at least be mentioned that Edgar Steele once described Bill Maher’s political positions and actions and/or utterances in a less-than-favorable light in one of his essays, and that the Mahers are thought by some to be partly Jewish (and once again, we know that many Jews don’t think very highly of Edgar Steele due to his perceptive outtake on many things Jewish).

(38) When considering the guilt or innocence of Edgar Steele, I cannot leave this one very important thing unstated as a stand-alone item: his wife Cyndi Steele does not believe or accept that he is guilty of plotting to kill her and her mother (and neither does her mother, by the way, who has referred to Mr. Steele in an affidavit as care-giving and supportive). I would simply suggest in that regard that Cyndi Steele, of all people, should know.
_________________________

In summary, it seems that the Edgar Steele case is an ongoing gross (and possibly even deliberate?) miscarriage of justice. It looks as though he is being railroaded because of his beliefs, writings, and speeches; and possibly because of investigations he had been conducting that he planned to publish in the near future. And it even seems a reasonable possibility that certain elements of the U.S. Government may have joined Larry Fairfax et al in initiating and carrying out that crime.

It does seem possible that all this is being done at the behest of the Jews that control certain elements of the U.S. Government (ZOG); in collusion with the key Negroes-in-charge: Eric Holder, Attorney General (likely); and President Barack Obama (conceivably and possibly). Hard as it might be to believe, it appears as though these factions of the government jumped on this case when it was initiated by Fairfax (or by Fairfax in collusion with the ADL and/or the FBI) as a way to “get” Steele after they couldn’t find anything else to nail him with.

We may never know the real facts and truth in regard to this case. But it strikes me that what has been lacking up to this point is real, rigorous and intensive, and unbiased investigation of all the elements, and especially of the claims and actions of Larry Fairfax. And here I’m thinking of honest and competent investigation by both the local press (investigative journalism) and by the FBI (the Federal Bureau of Investigation).

The whole fed case is another travesty. It's transparent to anyone but a fed lackey that they are letting a terrorist pipe bomb builder and thief off with a hand slap while throwing the book at Ed. All the while concocting stories of imaginary bombers in FBI setups and publicizing them as public enemies to keep the sheeple scared. Now when they find a real bomb, they cut a deal with the bomber to let him off so he will finger Ed Steele, the antithesis of their Zionist run state and target of their kosher sting operation.

Unfortunately, this is what are nation as come to , a bunch of sheeple that blindly obey and shallow everything the government puts before them from "911", to the "war on terror". The feds are stuffing million of mexiscum into the former US and the sheeple roll over and take it up the wahzoo. Have to give them credit, the heebs had a good plan, used communism in Russia and democracy over here in there take over. They had both sides covered until Hitler came along. Now, the US is in the final stages of being converted into the new reincarnation of the old USSR, and dissidents will not be allowed.

IMO the jooo thing, and being for Silver too is what got the supreme enemy of Western folks pissed at him.

Not unlikely that the POS's Fartfacts, and Bill Mahoodie listened to his radio show and KNEW he had Silver.

This is such crime, and their are no honest NKVD's left just the yes sir and where is my pay check types, so it appears.

Around 1981-82 Gore Vidal actually predicted this, he said we would become a police stat and the U.S.S.R would be a much free'er Nation twenty years in to the future.

This was from one of the big NYC left wing media periodicals and few believed him.

Great video, Ed was a big supporter of honest money, he knew the Federal Reserve and Income tax were setup to (among other things) help fund Israel and fleece the goyim sheeple of the US.

Gore Vidal mentioned Littlefield's article as an aside in his essay "The Oz Books," which appeared in The New York Review of Books in 1977. He called Littlefield's interpretation "elaborate" and questioned whether Baum had intended to write a political allegory. Despite his public support for Bryan in the 1896 and 1900 elections, Vidal regarded Baum as an apolitical writer. Vidal did point out, however, that Baum had "very definite ideas about the way the world should be."

Angry Fairfax Sentencing Delayed/Cyndi Comments

Cyndi's comments follow which were posted at the end of this article. You can comment as well but make sure that your comments are respectable and don't make matters worse.
=========
http://www.bonnercountydailybee.com/...cc4c002e0.html

COEUR d’ALENE — Sentencing scheduled Thursday for Sagle resident Larry Fairfax, the hitman turned FBI informant, was continued to early February.
Fairfax pleaded guilty to two firearms charges for making and possessing a pipe bomb that was attached to Cyndi Steele’s vehicle. It never exploded.

Federal prosecutors have said Fairfax was allegedly hired by Steele’s husband, prominent attorney Edgar J. Steele, to kill her and her mother. Fairfax faces up to 10 years in prison on both counts.

Edgar Steele, 65, has been charged with murder-for-hire and other related charges, but has pleaded not guilty to all of them.
His trial is scheduled for March 7.

Fairfax made a massive pipe bomb using a metal pipe, explosive powder and fuse and attached it to the bottom of Cyndi Steele’s sport utility vehicle, where it was accidentally discovered during an oil change in Coeur d’Alene on June 15.

A bomb squad unit from Spokane was called out and the discovery of the device caused U.S. 95 to be shut down as a safety precaution.
Prosecutors have said they have recordings of Edgar Steele and Fairfax, who had come forward to the FBI and agreed to wear a hidden recording device, discussing the hit on Cyndi Steele and her mother.

I am Cyndi Steele, the wife of Edgar Steele and I am responding to and commenting your article of December 17, 2010 which mentions the sentencing hearing for Mr. Fairfax has been moved to February 2011. Your article does not mention that my mother and I are victims of Larry Fairfax’s attempts to murder us by pipe bomb, but it does mention that we supposedly were victims of my husband’s alleged crimes. What your coverage of these events completely missed is the fact that both of us believe in my husband’s innocence. Wouldn’t it be unusual for the supposed victims to be backing the accused, unless he is innocent? How is it that the Bonner County Daily Bee missed this unusual fact? The article mentions that Fairfax came forward to tell authorities the whole truth, but says nothing about the fact that he lied to the FBI by promising that he would disclose all of his criminal activities and then kept secret the most important part: that there was a lethal bomb on my car, and if it exploded, it could have hurt a lot of people. The article does not mention the fact that I believe Larry Fairfax is not a hitman at all, because he was doing this on his own – and I know for a fact that my husband did not mastermind the killing of anyone. Let me be absolutely clear, my husband, Edgar Steele is innocent and did not hire Larry Fairfax or anyone to kill me or anyone else. As anyone who is acquainted with Larry Fairfax knows from his business dealings, he is a thief and a liar.

Wesley Hoyt comments on American government, 12/20/2010
2010 DECEMBER 20
by admin

As a former prosecuting attorney, I am shocked to see the government accuse innocent people, like Edgar Steele, of crimes that they didn’t commit; when often no crime occurred or the government created the crime.

This also happened in the 2005 case of David Hinkson. Of all the murder-for-hire cases the US Government has prosecuted in the recent past, none involve a victim who is trying to defend the accused as Cyndi Steele is attempting to defend her husband Edgar Steele. It doesn’t make any sense, unless it is put into the context of a loving husband/wife relationship, where, as in the Steele case, the wife literally nursed the husband back to health through four major surgeries in the six months prior to his arrest.

The government has gone so far out of bounds on this case, that it continues to make up new lies to cover up its former lies and still the story does not hold up. Hopefully, the public will rally to the defense of Edgar J. Steele, a First Amendment Constitutional lawyer, who has defended many, pro bono, to protect their rights when falsely charged by a government bent on imprisoning as many people as possible under the globalist New World Order scam.

Make no mistake, each person who reads this incredible story will know that the end times are nigh, even at their doors. We can push the globalists back if we can raise the money to defend Edgar Steele otherwise another innocent man goes to prison.

Please (go to www.free-edgar-steele.com and) find the “Donate” tab and give what you can, even $10.00 will help; or you can mail in a check or money order payable to the “Edgar Steele Defense Fund” P.O. Box 1255, Sagle, Idaho 83860.

In order to defend Mr. Steele, money is needed for a top notch lawyer and several expert witnesses such as an audio tape expert and an explosives expert.

Can anyone sleep at night knowing that Cyndi Steele, the wife of Edgar Steele, on whose car the Government’s informant attached a pipe bomb, is in distress, without her husband to defend her and is desperate to have a proper defense before he is railroaded into prison for the rest of his life?

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night (because as they shut down the lights on Mr. Steele, they may be able to shut them down on you.)

Funny how every news service portrayal of the event always gibes with the official version put forth by the Feds. (reminds me of 911) There is only one side of the argument promulgated by the media, who totally ignore any other scenario. The feds make the charges and the compliant media regurgitate the same story over and over in their Pravda style press releases. This type of journalism sounds all to familiar. (I bet especially to citizens of the former USSR.)

Then, the government spin masters ply the message boards of the news articles making sure any dissidents are ridiculed or shouted down in true Cass Sunstein fashion if they beg to differ with the official version of the event in question.

Default Update and Cyndi Steele Letter

Greetings from the Northwest Homeland, comrades. It’s December 23rd, 2010, I’m Harold Covington, and this is Radio Free Northwest.

As always we begin with Edgar Steele news. I mentioned last week that there was a rumor going around that the second assassin, the man who took the road trip from Idaho to Oregon with Larry Fairfax to make sure the bomb was still on Cyndi Steele’s car, has been identified. I said last week that I wanted to hold off on making any comment until I can get this name confirmed. I’m sorry to say that I have not been able to get this name verified to my satisfaction, and so I am still not going to comment on it.

Yeah, I know, this may sound ridiculous when the name is now all over the alternative internet and various blogs, but I’m sorry, I’m going to err on the side of caution here, and I’m not going to say anything until I see that name in a so-called “reputable source” like CNN. This may take a while, because so far the only news organ that is covering the Edgar Steele story at all seems to be the local newspaper in Idaho, the Bonner County Bee.

People may ask why I’m twitchy about saying something that everyone else in the alternate White internet is saying. Well, there’s several reasons. First off, let’s be flat out honest here. Quote-unquote “our” alternative media has a tendency to—oh, how can I put this kindly? Some of them tend to tell it like it should be, rather than necessarily tell it like it is. Every now and then, sure, the alternative media gets a real live scoop. Remember, it was Matt Drudge and the National Inquirer who first blew the whistle on Billyboy and Monica Lewinsky back in the 90s.

I very much hope that we do have a real live scoop in this case, because if this tentative identification of this person who is allegedly involved in the murder plot is correct, it’s a game-changer. Also, if it’s true, I don’t think the system will be able to protect this man from exposure by anything short of dropping all charges against both Edgar Steele and Larry Fairfax in exchange for their silence, and I rather doubt that’s going to happen.

But precisely because this name would be so recognizable and would initiate a major media feeding frenzy, I would like to wait until that happens. I want to see if this man’s name leaks out into the Establishment news media, in which case we will definitely see some coverage of the Edgar Steele case from someone besides the Bonner Daily Bee. Those who want to know who I’m talking about, Google around and I am sure you will eventually find one of the alternative sites that’s naming this man.

We tend to have some incorrect notions about the news media. They know that their credibility is really all they have to do their mischief with, and they understand what it takes to protect their credibility, and one of those things is that they never, or almost never, just plain outright lie, as in stating something that isn’t true. They will distort the facts, they will quote selectively, they will publish the worst photos they can find of people they don’t like, they will so arrange the wording in their articles and their reporting so that they imply things that are not true, but they will almost never flat out lie, because in this day and age of information technology and the internet, it’s simply too easy to catch them out if they lie.

I think this is one of the reasons that the Establishment is so dead set on finding some way to control the internet, in fact the FCC is taking another run at it this week. If this tyranny is to survive, then they have to find some way to control the flow of information and make sure everything comes from the top down and not from all over. Anyway, I am waiting until I see this guy’s name in one of the System media, and if that makes me last off the mark then so be it. I have a feeling that if it is true, once this name does get out then the dam on this whole Edgar Steele fiasco will be broken.

Speaking of media, I mentioned that about the only media organ covering the Steele case at all is the Bonner Daily Bee. This is a letter that Edgar Steele’s wife Cyndi wrote to that newspaper on December 17th..

To the Editor of the Bonner County Daily Bee:

I am Cyndi Steele, the wife of Edgar Steele and I am responding to and commenting on the article regarding to the December 17, 2010 article which mentions that the sentencing hearing for Mr. Fairfax has been moved to February 2011. This article does not mention that my mother and I, the supposed victims believe in my husband’s innocence, which is highly unusual in that the supposed victims are on the side of the accused.

The article mentions that Fairfax came forward to authorities, but says nothing about the fact that he lied to the FBI by promising that he would disclose all of his criminal activities, and then kept secret the most important part, that there was a bomb on my car that if exploded could have hurt a lot of people. The article does not mention the fact that I believe Larry Fairfax is not a hitman, because I know my husband did not mastermind the killing of any person.

Let me be absolutely clear, my husband, Edgar Steele is innocent and did not hire Larry Fairfax or anyone to kill me or anyone else. As anyone who is acquainted with Larry Fairfax knows from his business dealings for the past 20 years in our community, he is a thief and a liar. Now he is an attempted murderer, as he tried to murder me and my mom by placing a bomb on my car and let me drive a 1000 plus miles, for 3 almost weeks without saying anything to the authorities before I discovered it.

The article did not mention the fact that in May and early June, 2010, as my husband and I began discovering the theft of our property by Fairfax, who worked for us as a handyman. The article also failed to mention the fact that Fairfax began framing my husband and attempted to murder me to cover up his own criminal activities. Instead of coming forth with information that there was a bomb on my car on June 8th, neither Fairfax nor his accomplices nor Judge James Michaud, his attorney, came forward to make disclosure of the bomb, even though they had pledged to disclose all criminal activity to the authorities.

In fact, the FBI has done nothing to protect me from Fairfax and his accomplices; but, ironically, the government has carefully protected Fairfax; whose lies now are protecting the government from its misconduct. The government made sure Fairfax did not have to face a grand jury simply by filing charges against him that did not deal with his crimes of violence against me. The government has now given Fairfax a soft plea deal that will ensure he will not spend more than a year in prison, while they have charged my husband with other offenses that could mean a sentence upwards of 70 years.

The record shows that FBI even attempted to tamper with my testimony by trying to make me believe false information about my husband. There is strong evidence that the FBI knew a bomb was involved at least 5 days before I and an oil change mechanic discovered it attached to the undercarriage of my car on June 15th. It appears that the FBI deliberately didn’t investigate the existence of a bomb, because apparently they wanted the bomb to stay on my car, for reasons yet to be explained. On that same day, my son and I went to court to support my husband and we were told that the government would not offer us any protection; and that was just after I discovered the bomb and I was so scared I was shaking.

If Larry Fairfax truly had turned away from his criminal enterprise and was honestly cooperating with authorities on June 8th, then he would have told the FBI about the “lethal” bomb he attached to my car, which would have saved me and lots of people in Oregon, Washington and Idaho from the risk of a bomb explosion.

Since the government has made this case very complicated, there is too much about this case to write here, but if you visit www.free-edgar-steele.com, you will learn some of the details about how Larry Fairfax and his accomplices, who are the criminals in this case, are being allowed to get away with their crimes while and my husband, Edgar Steele, who is innocent, is being punished even before he goes to trial. It is as if the government has completely forgotten about the Presumption of Innocence and in solitary confinement since June 11th.

Let’s see if you truly believe in freedom of speech by publishing this response to your article which obviously was written as a press release by the government.

Signed, Cyndi Steele
I think that pretty much speaks for itself.

Mrs. Steel told her story almost two months ago on two separate radio shows, and now it is Christmas, and he is still in a solitary cell in Spokane WA. who my guess is by direction back in D.C. Its amazing he has not died considering his health.

This is how an ex-Coast Guard officer and gentleman patriot citizen/lawyer who had a severe heart attack is treated at age 65 with his wife and family begging that that be let go.

IMO this is to serve as a warning to any other lawyer who would like to be a Spence or Steel type of attorney defending the Bill Of Rights.

Folks is this not akin to the old NKVD ex USSR middle of the night tactics ?

Is this regime in to terrrorizing US now at will ?

Merry Christmas, huh ?

Angry Trial Date Set

This is one of the top stories of the year in the Coeur d' Alene paper.
========
http://www.cdapress.com/news/local_n...ec36ff54f.html
.......
9.Attorney allegedly hires hitman to kill wife
Former Aryan Nations lawyer Edgar J. Steele was accused of hiring a hit man to kill his wife, Cyndi Steele, and he's set to be tried March 7 in U.S. District Court.

The alleged hitman, Sagle resident Larry Fairfax, pleaded guilty to two firearms charges for making and possessing a pipe bomb that he said he attached to Cyndi Steele's sport utility vehicle. Edgar Steele, 65, has been charged with murder-for-hire and other related charges, but has pleaded not guilty to all of them.

A massive pipe bomb was discovered under Cyndi Steele's SUV during an oil change in Coeur d'Alene on June 15, just as her husband was being indicted by a grand jury for trying to have her killed.

A bomb squad unit from Spokane was called out and the discovery of the device caused U.S. 95 to be shut down as a safety precaution.
But Cyndi Steele called a press conference in September at the Silver Lake Motel conference room to tell the public that the murder-for-hire charges are bogus.

"The FBI says that my husband hired Larry Fairfax to kill me and my mother," Cyndi Steele said. "That is not true. We have been married for 25 years. Ed loves me, I love him." She blames Fairfax alone for the plot.

At the press conference she claimed in a prepared statement that Fairfax - a handyman who had often worked on her property - stole $45,000 worth of silver coins from the Steeles, thus giving him a motive to "scheme up the murder-for-hire plot."

Prosecutors have said they have recordings of Edgar Steele and Fairfax, who had come forward to the FBI and agreed to wear a hidden recording device, discussing the hit on Cyndi Steele and her mother.

A loonie who threw a candle holder at the Royal Coach of the Dutch Queen has been held for 3.5 months now and his detainment has been lengthened with more than 2 months. He is quite harmless but the powers that be want to set an example. He faces life imprisonment for an assassination attempt against The Netherlands' Head of State, even there was no chance of any fatality. :-/

The Mini-Series

Uncensored Tapes from the making of Death & Taxes

There is much, much more to the Gordon Kahl story than what is contained in the 113 minute version of Death & Taxes. As you may or may not know, we spent over five years making the movie and we dredged up over 150 hours of interviews and newsreels, talking to hundreds of people and reviewing tens of thousands of pages of court transcripts and Freedom of Information Act-obtained government documents.
It took us over two years of editing to put together the movie many of you have already seen. The frustration we faced was how do you condense such a huge subject down into a commercial movie. Hence, we had to make some very difficult decisions to tell the entire story of Gordon Kahl in a two hour version.
I have often felt that the movie Death & Taxes is really just a Table of Contents to this epic story. For every five minute section of Death & Taxes there is about 45 minutes of a much more detailed and documented story which we edited in what is called a roughcut (14 hours). What we've decided to do is offer these expanded sections of Gordon Kahl's life story to those of you who are interested in discovering the whole truth. The following videotapes are available for the first time to those who purchased Death & Taxes:
Program #:
1) GORDON KAHL'S MEETING WITH HEAD NORTH DAKOTA U.S. MARSHAL BUD WARREN. (60 minute audio cassette tape recorded at a neighbors farm) 2) THE BEGINNING (93 minutes) Gordon's WWII experiences where he was forced to shoot down one of his own planes. His views on Pearl Harbor, farm & welfare programs, communism, Joe McCarthy, Mormonism, the money system, JFK's assassination, the Bible, Freemasonry and the New World Order conspiracy. 3) GORDON'S TEXAS TAX TRIAL (90 minutes) An in-depth look at Kahl's tax trial where he was selectively prosecuted for going on TV and saying the federal income tax was unconstitutional. Includes interviews with the original IRS agent who pursued Gordon as well as Gordon's lawyer who represented him at the trial and the family members perspective.

Looks like the FBI's Northwest Fake Bomb Frame Unit is at it again. This is the third case, iirc.

Spokane bomb casualties could have been severe, FBI says

By Abby Sewell, Los Angeles Times

January 18, 2011, 9:38 p.m.

Reporting from Los Angeles — A "potentially deadly" explosive device that could have caused severe casualties was found along the intended route of a Martin Luther King Day march in Spokane, Wash., half an hour before the event was to begin, the FBI said Tuesday.

The annual Unity March was rerouted after city workers noticed a black Swiss Army backpack apparently abandoned on a bench about 9:25 a.m. Monday, said Frank Harrill, the supervisory senior resident agent in the FBI's Seattle division.

The device inside "clearly would have had the potential to inflict multiple casualties, injury and death, to humans," Harrill said in an interview Tuesday. He declined to describe the device.

The FBI said the backpack also contained two T-shirts — one from the 2010 Stevens County Relay for Life, an American Cancer Society fundraiser, and the other reading, "Treasure Island Spring 2009."

About 1,500 people marched along the new route without incident while the Spokane Explosives Disposal Unit neutralized the device.

No one has claimed responsibility or offered a motive, Harrill said. But he called the connection with the King Day march "inescapable."

"We're treating this as an act of domestic terrorism," he said.

The FBI, which is leading the investigation, is offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible.

The area has a history of white supremacist activity. Until 2001, the Aryan Nations was headquartered in nearby Hayden Lake, Idaho. As recently as April 2009, the Spokesman-Review newspaper reported that residents of a Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, subdivision had found Aryan Nations recruitment letters on their lawns.

Ivan Bush, who works for Spokane Public Schools and has helped organize the King Day march for more than 20 years, said the attempted attack pained him.

"Man, that's a sad testament," Bush told the Associated Press. "Here we are in the 21st century and these types of things are still happening. It just hurts."
