I report corruption to David Johnson (my team knows him as "DJ"), the head of the San Francisco FBI and Chris Wray, the head of the main FBI office in Washington, DC.

How to report corruption depends on what your role is in relation to the government and the size of the corruption that you uncover. There is an unfortunate caveat that will in part determine the action you will take: whether the person or agency about which you are blowing the whistle is connected to the corruption you are reporting. The sad reality is that not everyone in government is interested in ridding it of corruption, and these individuals may be in a position to retailers against you by taking actions against you that may be decidedly not in your interest.

For the general public, the risk of retaliation is lower than it is for government employees when reporting corruption. Usually the lowest level of intervention will suffice to correct the corruption. Specifically, if you observe an act of corruption, you should attempt to contact a supervisor or manager charged with overseeing the offending employee. Often employees who engage in corrupt activities do so without the knowledge of their supervisor. In these cases, government action against the employee can be swift. Virtually all low-level corruption can be addressed in this manner.

Higher levels of corruption, however, may require the knowledge and coordination of employees at higher levels in the government; often the supervisors and managers to whom you might report the low level activities of typical government employees. Consequently the risk of having the report be ignore/buried is much higher as the potential risk of retaliation toward you. Consider that you may be reporting information on wrongdoing that states what you know, how you know, and who you know are engaged in the corruption to the very people who may be involved with it. You might be providing these corrupt officials with the useful information they may need to improve the cover-up of their activities.

If this is the case, at virtually all levels of government there exists a watchdog agency charged with eliminating government corruption. In the federal government there are multiple resources to which you can report, but each department will be overseen by an Office of the Inspector General (OIG). State governments will usually investigate complaints of corruption with their respective offices of the Attorney General. This can include local governments such as cities and counties as well as school boards and other local entities.

Reporting corruption will bring the inevitable questions of what you know, how you know it, who is involved, and what laws you believe were broken. Collect as many documents and emails as you can to support your case that corruption is ongoing.

But if you believe that the corruption is of a particularly criminal level, either in the specific activities or the amount of money involved, it is possible to take your concerns to law enforcement agencies such as the Federal Bureau of Investigations or state equivalents. The difference is that the FBI might undertake investigations into state-local level corruption cases (it is no guarantee).

The important factor in whether you will report corruption initially is whether it is significant. In reporting many acts of small corruption, relatively speaking, you may wear-out your welcome with investigating agencies. So, do not just go around reporting every little thing--it takes resources away from investigating more substantive matters.

Finally, you can "go public" by reaching out to the journalistic media. You should be prepared to discuss your issue publicly and let journalists in on all of your information. If you are reporting information that only a few people might have, you also need to prepare for reprisals taken against you, including denial of resources, libel and slander, and even people possibly using government resources against you. Bear in-mind that if your case of corruption has little to no excitement, some journalistic outlets that thrive on sensationalizing the news may not be open to taking your report.

To shift gears to government employees and contractors of agencies, the opportunities for reprisal (loss of resources, loss of jobs, etc...) can be much higher because corruption may find its way into your workplace if you have reported it.

When you report wrongdoing or corruption, you are blowing the whistle to attract attention to the unethical/illegal acts. When a government employee or agency engages in negative acts against you, this may be considered retaliation for making protected disclosures, blowing the whistle. In the federal government it is important that, when you make a protected disclosure that you reasonably believe may lead to retaliation, you need to file with the Office of Special Counsel (OSC). Lacking this paperwork to document your disclosure, you might not be able to state that the retaliation was in response to your filing a protected disclosure with the authorities. It is important if you work for a non-federal government entity to check to see what your specific rights are, if any. Seeking out the counsel of an employment law lawyer is the best way to determine your rights.

OSC also investigates retaliatory acts once your protected status is conferred upon you for making protected disclosures. This can be a lengthy process as OSC is overburdened with work, some legitimate, some frivolous. Just hang in there if you are going through this process, and make sure you can provide as much documentation as possible of all acts taken against you that you suspect are in retaliation for making protected disclosures. Even in non-federal settings, having this documentation is the most important part of what you can do to protect yourself.

In the end, you will be the only person who can decide whether you will report government corruption. If you decide to do it, make sure you blow the whistle as hard as possible by committing fully to this course of action. You need to prepare for the possibility of experiencing the worst possible outcome of retaliation for doing the right thing. So you need to weigh your options wisely before deciding what to do.

For me, there is no question that I must do the right thing and report wrongdoing to the proper authorities. It is simply part of who I am and I believe it to be an important part of my job. But I also have to be discerning in making sure what I am reporting and who I believe is engaged in wrongdoing really are doing what I suspect. It is a balancing act, but in the end I always have the documentation I need to sustain my case before I report it.

How did we fight back against the most powerful organized crime entity on Earth? Is it possible for anybody to fight the "Illuminati" and keep knocking them off their thrones like we do?

We get those questions all the time. Here are the answers.

First, they started it. The bad guys attacked us because our products and services were better than theirs and they could not compete. They decided to cheat rather than compete and they cheated with political bribes, black-lists, collusion and other anti-trust violating acts. When we helped law enforcement investigate them, the bad guys doubled down on their attacks. The bad guys crossed the line when they used our own government officials and taxpayer funds to operate their crimes. They broke felony laws and the basic principles of Democracy.

So who are these mobsters? They are your Senators, White House Staff, insider agency staff and their Silicon Valley Oligarch sociopath political financiers. Some of your public officials set-up, operated and maintained an organized crime scheme for personal profit at the expense of every taxpayer. They went after Five Trillion dollars of your tax money for their personal interests via rigged stock market scams, rigged government contracts, exclusionary policy manipulations and other schemes that harmed American taxpayers.

We are Game On!

We wrote FBI-quality criminal activities reports and filed them with every law enforcement and regulatory agency in every country in the world that we could find, including the FBI, OSC, GAO, EU, Interpol, FSB, UN, etc.

We identified and listed every person, organization and company involved in the attacks and RICO law violations and provided that list to The U.S. Congress and every agency.

We built an NSA-class global open-source database that can track all of the locations, hookers, fake fronts, family trusts, bank accounts, stock market accounts, bribes and other goodies, of any corrupt public official, in minutes!

We opened our own private investigator and crowd-sourced investigations into the following:

- Every stock market account they or their family owns

- Every Uber or Lyft ride they ever took for any meeting or transport of sex workers

- Every flight manifest they appeared on

- Every bank account they have ever held

- Every lawsuit, divorce record and police record they have ever appeared in

- Every trust fund they or their family holds

- Every shell corporation they, or their family holds

- Every person named in the Epstein Pedo book:    cross referenced across all of the other databases and then supplied to the FBI and Child Protection Agencies

- Every item in the Swiss Leaks that cross connects to their holdings

- Every item in the Panama Papers Leaks that cross connects to their holdings

- Every item in the WikiLeaks that cross connects to their holdings

- Every item in the Snowden Leaks that cross connects to their holdings

- Every sex trafficking incident that connects to each of them alone, and in groups

- Every financial transaction between any of the parties on the master list and the character assassination and hit job firms of: Google, Univision, Gawker Media, Unimoda, Jalopnik, Gizmodo,Black Cube, Fusion GPS, Media Matters, Think Progress, IN-Q-Tel, K2 Intelligence, WikiStrat, Podesta Group, YouTube, Alphabet, David Drummond, Larry Page, Facebook, Correct The Recor, Stratfor, ShareBlue, Sid Blumenthal, David Brock, Eric Schmidt, Sunshine Sachs, Covington and Burling, Buzzfeed, Perkins Coie and Wilson Sonsini or their derivatives with common owners.

- Every item in the Quest Leaks that cross connects to their holdings

- Every tactical deployment, by a campaign financier, of the tactics listed in this manual:

- Every sex service that their credit card payments every connect too

- Every real estate transaction that any name or company they, or their family, were involved in, tracks to

..... and hundreds of thousands of other information points about them that prove that they benefit from crimes that they engage in for others who engage in crimes using the America public policy system.

It all goes into shared 100% legal public collaborative databases that work like XKEYSCORE, or MS Access, or Oracle Databases.

The proof of collusion, organized criminal actions and raw covert corruption is indisputable. The actors are all the same people. The beneficiaries are all the same people. The communications between the parties all coordinate the same actions.

We have demanded their arrests, indictments, exposures and bankruptcies. We say "Fuck You" to the Silicon Valley Oligarch 'Illuminati' scumbags and the crooked Senators and Governor's they bribed. You say you are going to "kill us and destroy our lives.." and that you are so frightening. You think you are a big scary thing? Here comes 'scary'! Watch what billions of taxpaying voters with collaborative FBI-class forensics investigation software is doing to you now!

The University of Illinois found that the northern district of Illinois had 1,642 corruption convictions between 1976 and 2013. The tradition of corruption continues, as four of the last seven Illinois governors have served time in federal prison for corruption.

Election time is prime time for long-winded speeches at every level of government. Citizens want to believe that their candidates’ motives are genuine and that their tax dollars will be used ethically to support and improve their community. How can you tell if corruption exists, and if it does, do you know how to report corruption in local government?

How to Spot Potential Signs of Corruption

Spotting corruption can be difficult, especially if no one is looking for it. However, history has shown us that there are telltale signs of corruption in local government.

Corruption is more likely to occur when there are few or no watchdogs. If you live in an area where one political party dominates the government, there is less likely to be any objective oversight. Investigations may be light or nonexistent. It’s the old adage, “What you don’t know won’t hurt you,” until it does.

Don’t count on the fact that corruption doesn’t occur in your area. Because Illinois is known for its corruption, the University of Illinois did a study of local government corruption. Surprisingly, Miami and Newark surpassed Chicago, with each city having over 400 corruption convictions within a nine-year timespan.

It also pays to be aware of court systems that are light on convictions. The acquittals of the police officers in the Rodney King case, and another Los Angeles case in which a store owner killed a young African American girl and served no jail time at all, demonstrate that the justice system isn’t always as just as citizens would like it to be.

Other signs of possible corruption are when family members get insider jobs, public officials suddenly become wealthier, the local government budget is always dry, the town’s infrastructure is crumbling and the FBI has a viable presence in your area.

How to Report Corruption in Local Government

Now that you know what to look for, would you know how to report corruption in local government if you suspected it? Smaller cities and towns are actually more susceptible to corruption than large cities. With smaller budgets, smaller locales often lack the budget to employ an official oversight body. Regardless of the size of a community or the size of its budget, every community can take action to prevent corruption within their local government. Preventing corruption on any level depends on two words — accountability and transparency.

Insisting on Accountability

Every town or city should have a known authority to which — or to whom — citizens can report suspicions of fraud or corruption. Each area is at liberty to make their own decisions about who or what body has the authority to investigate and address allegations of fraud and corruption. If your town doesn’t have such an authority, it’s a good idea to have some discussions with elected officials about establishing a watchdog authority. Alternatively, it’s something citizens can bring up for discussion at a public meeting. You might just find that other citizens are equally concerned.

If your local government doesn’t know where to start, it’s helpful to share ideas with them on how other small towns and cities have approached the issue. Here’s a starter list of ideas that various municipalities have implemented to improve accountability and transparency in their communities:

  • Implement an Ethics Commission
  • Hire a part-time or full-time Ethics Officer
  • Combine with other cities and towns and share the cost of a Regional Ethics Officer
  • Hire a part-time or full-time Local Inspector General
  • Expand the duties of a City Auditor to include local government investigations

Ethics officials should be independent of city positions in order to avoid a conflict of interest. Their job descriptions should include overseeing city officials, management and staff. They should also be responsible for conducting investigations over allegations of ethics violations and make all ethics decisions public via public postings. Ethics officers usually also coordinate ethics training classes and ensure that all public officials are compliant with ethics education.

The use of a city auditor isn’t always the best solution, as city auditors usually limit their investigations to allegations regarding financial issues.

For very small communities with extremely limited finances, it may not be possible to hire an Ethics Officer or an equivalent. In that case, at a minimum, citizens should verify that their local government has a system of internal controls, such as having more than one person open the mail and having more than one person check over the accounting records.

New York citizens provide a positive example of how citizens can hold their public officials accountable with their project called “Reclaim New York.” The citizen-led project formed the New York Transparency Project where citizens can grade the performance of all local government officials based on 29 clear transparency practices. It’s a program that all communities can use as a model for better government.

How a Transparency Portal Supports Accountability and Transparency in Local Government

There’s another way that citizens can encourage their local officials to step up and demonstrate their commitment to ethical leadership, and that’s by implementing a Transparency Portal by iCompass. A Transparency Portal is a seamless extension of a local government website that’s designed with the accountability and transparency of local government in mind.

Citizens can use the portal to view council meeting agendas and minutes. They can even view a council meeting in progress in real time, which makes access to local government convenient for shut-ins and disabled people, as well as all citizens. Using a simple search box, citizens can retrieve all public documents within seconds. There’s no better investment of tax dollars or a sure way to ensure accountability and transparency of local government than by implementing a Transparency Portal by iCompass.
