Not suspicious at all
A mystery has taken hold of me.
Phil Haney was a founding member of the Department of Homeland Security – an agency that investigated him nine times and found nothing untoward. And this very same agency scrubbed its own records that Haney had been using to investigate Islamist terror networks in the United States.
Vaguely, I remember his name from my early days of blogging. He’s back in the news again; unfortunately for being dead.
From Carmine Sabia:
A man who had already exposed President Obama once and was about to do it again has been found shot to death in California.
Police originally labeled the death a suicide but now say that the initial reports were “misinformation” and the case is still open.
Haney blew the whistle on the Obama Administration for, he said, asking him to scrub the records of potential radical Islamists that the Department of Homeland Security was investigating prior to Obama’s election.
Last Friday he was found dead in his car less than three miles from his home from a single gunshot wound to the head, police said.
The initial reported said Haney “appeared to have suffered a single, self-inflicted gunshot wound” and “a firearm was located next to Haney and his vehicle,” Fox News reported.
A new press release from the Amador County Sheriff’s Office now says that the death was not a suicide and that the investigation is “active and ongoing.”
“On February 22, 2020 the Amador County Sheriff’s Office released initial details regarding Philip Haney being found deceased in our jurisdiction. Mr. Haney was located in a park and ride open area immediately adjacent to State Highway 16 near State Highway 124. Highway 16 is a busy state highway and used as a main travel route to and from Sacramento. The location is less than 3 miles from where he was living.
According to other reports I’ve read, Haney was a committed, active Christian. A widower, he was planning to remarry this year. Not exactly a prime candidate for suicide; I guess that’s why that angle was dropped.
I’m reading his book See Something, Say Nothing, published in 2016. It is an indictment of the Obama Administration as lackeys of global jihad and I’m look forward to reading about the San Bernardino and Orlando Islamist attacks, which could have been prevented, according to Haney.
Seems that a lot of highly placed people might benefit greatly by sending Mr. Haney into the next world.
I’m also planning to read Haney’s essay Green Tide Rising; suffice it to say that it’s not about climate change.
I’m a nobody, so it should be easy to explore this without becoming dead myself. But we’ll see.
By the way, I’m “reading” the book via Audible. It seems that dead-tree versions of it are unavailable — at least on Amazon.
