On the Alex Jones Show yesterday, investigative journalist Wayne Madsen discussed the involvement of a shadowy Israeli company in an effort by Pennsylvania’s Homeland Security to spy on activists exercising their First Amendment.
On Wednesday, Infowars.com reported that Pennsylvania paid a Philadelphia-based nonprofit $125,000 to compile a list of activists as part of the state Homeland Security’s federally mandated mission to protect public infrastructure. Madsen, citing a story published on late Wednesday by the Philadelphia Citypaper, revealed that the “non-profit” operates not only out of Philadelphia, but Israel as well.
Research conducted by Citypaper journalist Isaiah Thompson shows that
the company, the Institute of Terrorism Research and Response (ITRR),
in fact does not operate under non-profit status, as reported yesterday
by the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “Although the group claims nonprofit status on its website and is
listed as a nonprofit corporation by the Pennsylvania Department of
State, a search on websites Guidestar.org and IRS.gov yielded no
indication that the organization enjoys tax-exempt status. An email
seeking clarification of the group’s nonprofit status was not returned,”
