Bill Graber, fake lesbian activist, agent provocateur, threatens websites to try to withdrawn his mug from public view

HELP! Any other sites out there being threatened by Bill Graber, fake lesbian blogger, DADT spoiler and Syria false flag propaganda troll? Now he's pretending copyright infringement, trying to withdraw his ugly mug from public view. He's threatening to sue NMT, our host, and I guess ...half the web. Oh. NEVER MIND.   What a hoser. If the "retired Air Force" dude hadn't been unmasked as the fake lesbian blogger "Paula Brooks" giving cover to the more infamous Gay Girl of Damascus Amina Arraf dude, he'd still be infiltrating lesbian blogs, sabotaging their DADT efforts and demoralizing fellow contributors, like a typical COINTELPRO op! When outed by the Washington Post, this is the photo he supplied, now it's all over the internet. In our initial story, we didn't know how much weight to give either his name, or his photo, considering he was the source of both, uncorroborated. Judging by the comments and emails we've received from agent Lez-Dude, he doesn't mind the name "Bill Graber" all over the place, but boy he seems uncomfortable with the picture being out there. Could it be that he's worried that with enough exposure the image will eventually catch the eye of someone who knows his real identity? OR did he give a dead person's picture to the WaPo, and that could be found out? Who knows, it's not like "Graber" is above hiding behind another identity, when he blogged as a deaf lesbian whose "dad" had to handle her phone calls from those dagblast reporters.   I'd say his claim to have copyrighted his lonesome image is an invitation for someone from the locality of Fairborn, Ohio to snap a real pic. His phone is 937-305-5518, his IP is 65.185.154.156, my bet would be to show this mug shot around Asian massage parlors outside Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. Much legwork has already been done on "Bill Graber" sick puppy who insinuates himself into lesbian conversations to speak abusively to women, but his spooky military MO is going overlooked. Synthesizing the complaints accumulated about "Paula Brooks" yields a pattern unnervingly like an activist-provocateur. Graber claims he was motivated to pose as a lesbian to help the cause of DADT, yet his efforts were chiefly disruptive and harmful. Accounts by fellow bloggers mirror exactly what peace activists experience with undercover cops. By the way, after his unmasking, Graber handed off his site to another non-lesbian, not a man this time, whose husband is in the military. Call me a nut, but I'm inclined to suggest that when the WaPo tracked lesbian "Brooks" to a man, it turned out to be a professional infiltrator, and an agreement was reached with the pro-military WaPo where a reasonably believable profile would be tendered to the public, sooner than out an agent. Thus we have "Graber", this photo, and the following details: retired Air Force, construction worker, 58 years old, from Ohio. That's all. Whose photo? Well the longer that mug is online, the more likely such a question will be answered. Then there will be

Westword dumb-alecks are rooting for the separation of Churchill and state

DENVER- This week's cover of WESTWORD portends the upcoming Ward Churchill trial. The cover features Churchill and colleagues as unsavory caricatures of what looks like a circus of creeps. It points not to a cover story, but to a cartoon gatefold of equally squalid details, viewable online.   What you can't see online is the editorial slant stuck into the contents page pointer. Two clever puns perhaps, betraying Westword's miserable intent to disinform. Ward without end: academic freedom is a long bore. Separation of Churchill and state: apropos to nothing, maybe closer to the opposite, actually. The separation of education from the people. The Westword jokes ride on a single unquestioned assumption, that Churchill is guilty of plagiarism. I think that's an odd argument to pretend has already been proved. The University's case is trumped up, and many academics have jumped to Churchill's aid. Now that the charge faces a Denver courtroom, and not a stacked board of trustees, the baldfaced accusation will easily be refuted. My bigger question is, from whom could Churchill have borrowed?! Ward Churchill's critics are wildly opposed to the findings of his scholarship. They're angry that he points to genocide perpetrated against Native Americans, angry that he rails against the racism which undergirds American imperialism, and terrified that he completely exposed the government's programs aimed at silencing dissent, COINTELPRO's workings still lying unsprung on college campuses. Ward's opponents deny every of his conclusions, but they want to pretend he's not alone? This is going to be like the naked emperor, accusing the little brave truth-teller of simply having mimicked his friends. Even true, the emperor is still naked. Here's another example of Westword's humor. While every detail about Churchill seems framed to be a put-down, it looks like they also mean that to include the ethnicity of his wife. I haven't been paying attention to Denver's alternative weekly. When did Westword become such douchebags?

NLG DU chapter hosts Ward Churchill

DENVER- Ward Churchill will speak Tues, Oct 7, 12-1pm at DU's Sturm College of Law, Room 180, on THE MYTH OF ACADEMIC FREEDOM, sponsored by the National Lawyers Guild. Detractors are already raising a stir. They're not scholars, what stake do they have in repudiating Churchill's work? If they are simply cheerleading the Eichmann-remark backlash which led to Churchill's dismissal, the charges of plagiarism seem to have already been debunked. Churchill's colleagues have weighed in with their testimony, and leading academics have likewise spoken against the actions taken against him. Nevertheless, the National Lawyers Guild got some flak for sponsoring this lecture. Here's a note circulated to its members: Dear NLG: I am dismayed that you are sponsoring a talk by Ward Churchill. I do not regard him as a fit spokesperson for the progressive movement. While his firing was undoubtedly motivated by the opprobrium engendered by his outrageous and ill-considered comparison of the people in the World Trade Center to Adolf Eichmann, the grounds cited by the University of Colorado for his firing are plagiarism, a serious breach of academic ethics. Churchill is a fourth-rate thinker, he should not have been granted a doctoral degree in the first place, and he should not now be able to peddle his mediocre cant on the lecture circuit -- why are you enabling him to do so, and why do imagine that he is qualified to address the issue of academic freedom in general? It is clear that his comments were not made pursuant to his work as an academic, so whether his firing was justified or not, his case is hardly exemplary of the infringement of academic freedom. I do not plan to attend. I'll withhold the idiot's name. But let's look into what the email author did not, before opening his trap to parrot the usual disinfo talking points. From Tom Mayer, Department of Sociology, University of Colorado at Boulder: The research misconduct charges against Ward Churchill are of two general kinds: charges of faulty research and charges of plagiarism. The faulty research accusations have been largely discredited through the efforts of professors Eric Cheyfitz, Michael Yellow Bird, David Stannard, Huanani-Kay Trask, James Craven, Ruth Hsu, and others. These independent scholars, all of whom are intimately familiar with Native American history and culture, have shown that the Report of the Investigative Committee (henceforth called Report) finding Churchill guilty of research misconduct contains numerous errors of omission and commission. The Report improperly converts legitimate scholarly controversies into indictments of the positions taken by Professor Churchill. ... Procedural fairness in modern jurisprudence requires that accusation, formal charging, decisions about evidence, and imposition of penalties should be clearly separated. This has not happened in the case of Ward Churchill. The CU administration, usually in the person of Provost Philip DiStefano, has functioned as Churchill’s accuser, grand jury, tribunal selector, and sentencing judge. This concatenation of roles makes it easy for political motivations to penetrate

Can you help us identify this “activist?”

If you have any helpful information about the identity of this Neighbor Wilson, please contact us immediately. We are particularly interested in his whereabouts and identity before 2006. Your email replies will be kept in the strictest confidence. These pictures were taken at the 2008 Broadmoor protest, which is distinguished from other actions because here activists come into face to face contact with defense industry people and the intelligence community. On this mild overcast morning, do you notice anyone else wearing sunglasses? Is he hoping not to run into an old colleague? Or a previous target? The age of the internet means it's a lot harder to plop an infiltrator into an activists group because suspicious folk can Google for provenance. You'd have to say you came out of a monastery to explain your lack of record of past activities. In Colorado Springs, it's suspected that THE NAVIGATORS and YOUNG LIFE, among others, are used to launder US intelligence operatives into the population at large. Here's an opportunity to test the new waters which the internet presents for the Witness Protection Program and other government embedding techniques. Let's pass around a picture far and wide and see what previous identities come to light.

Cynthia McKinney 2008, I think I love you!

As a powerful antidote against the nonsensical Juneteenth Day event here in Colorado Springs, thank you, Cynthia McKinney, woman in Green. This is a powerful speech, where she talks about COINTELPRO, the police, and how crappy America currently is now. Cynthia McKinney in Green, 2008. Oh, and LOVE.

And, of course, there's some truth to that. There are things you can do in the United States that you can't do many other places without being put in jail. But the United States is a very complex system. It's very hard to describe because, yes, there are elements of democracy; there are things that you're grateful for, that you're not in front of the death squads in El Salvador. On the other hand, it's not quite a democracy. And one of the things that makes it not quite a democracy is the existence of outfits like the FBI and the CIA. Democracy is based on openness, and the existence of a secret policy, secret lists of dissident citizens, violates the spirit of democracy. Despite its carefully contrived image as the nation's premier crime fighting agency, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has always functioned primarily as America's political police. This role includes not only the collection of intelligence on the activities of political dissidents and groups, but often times, counterintelligence operations to thwart
