SUNDAY, Nov. 9: In addition to announcing that my first crime-fiction novel had hit the marketplace in the post, The National Bet Now on Sale in Paperback, Ebook, I shared a piece about one method of communication used by Soldiers — including my dad — during World War II. Finally, I offered an update to an exclusive report I published two days earlier about the Oklahoma City Bombing trial taking place in Salt Lake City.

MONDAY, Nov. 10:  I shared news about something I have in common with the nation’s most-popular talk radio host in my post, Rush Limbaugh Threatens to Sue Democrat Committee.

TUESDAY, Nov. 11: On Veterans Day, I shared news about several special men in my life. The ones in my post, Story of Four Not-So-Famous Brothers Inspires, served during World War II. The one in my post, Wrongly Convicted By Military Justice System, American Soldiers Deserve as Much Attention as GITMO Detainees, served in the modern Army.

WEDNESDAY, Nov. 12:  I offered a warning in my post, YOU Might Be On A Federal Watch List!

THURSDAY, Nov. 13:  I showed off my printed wares along with dozens of other authors at a book lover’s event in O’Fallon, Mo.

FRIDAY, Nov. 14: On this busy day, I shared news about an auction, an interrogator, an indictment and a Saturday talk radio appearance on “TIPPING POINT with BOONE CUTLER” in Reno, Nev.

FYI: A film crew from Los Angeles will be visiting soon to interview me as part of a documentary they’re shooting. Though I can’t divulge more details at this time, I can tell you that the findings I share inside my second nonfiction book, The Clapper Memo, will be front and center. Meanwhile, I hope you’ll read and share my pieces and, of course, buy my books — including the one endorsed by Santa Claus. Thanks in advance!

Judge Threatens FBI With Contempt as 2014 Oklahoma City Bombing Trial Continues in Salt Lake City Federal Court

Federal Judge Clark Waddoups used almost 550 words to spank FBI officials for failing to comply with his order and provide a required report. Now, it will be interesting to see how they respond when he puts them on the spot in his Salt Lake City courtroom Thursday.

The judge wrote an ORDER GRANTING MOTION TO VACATE EVIDENTIARY HEARING that included the following admonishments of FBI officials after they busted a Nov. 3 deadline for submitting a report about their search for copies of surveillance-camera videotapes recorded in downtown Oklahoma City moments before the Oklahoma City Bombing:

The evidentiary hearing will be postponed; however, the hearing itself will go forward on Thursday, November 13, 2014 at 10:00 a.m., at which time Defendant will have occasion to argue to the court why it should not be found in contempt for failure to comply with the court’s Order to conduct this investigation and provide the required report. The court also requests the parties to be prepared to discuss why the court should not appoint a special master to oversee the Defendant’s compliance with court orders, particularly relating to the allegations of witness tampering, and with Plaintiff’s FOIA request.

If the plaintiff in the case, Salt Lake City attorney Jesse Trentadue, gets his wish, FBI officials will simply turn over copies of the videotape evidence during the Nov. 13 hearing. Of course, he doesn’t really expect them to change course so dramatically after stonewalling and obstructing his efforts for so many years already.

For a better understanding of what this means and why it should be making headlines nationwide, review my my last report about this Oklahoma City Bombing trial, watch the chilling one-hour video (above). After that, stay tuned for more details as they become available.

UPDATE 11/09/2014 at 6 p.m. Central:  Two days after I broke the news, The Salt Lake Tribune is covering the trial with this article.
