FBI promised 'martyrdom payments' to sting target
McLEAN, Va. (AP) — An FBI sting operation promised "martyrdom payments" of up to $1,000 a month to a Moroccan immigrant who eventually volunteered to kill himself in a plot to bomb the U.S. Capitol, according to court papers.
Amine El-Khalifi, 29, who was living in Alexandria as an illegal immigrant until the time of his arrest in February, will be sentenced Friday in federal court in Alexandria. He pleaded guilty in June.
In court papers, El-Khalifi's lawyers said their client received more than $5,700 in living expenses from undercover FBI agents during the six-month investigation. He was also promised that his parents would receive what the lawyers describe as "martyrdom payments" of up to $1,000 a month after he completed the attack.
Killer max keiser episode, watch and understand the financial system, before you speak, please watch teh whole episode, become aware of teh daily fraud.... you wont see the media that is complicit in this fraud speak about these issues..
In this episode, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss Jamie Dimon's collateral transformation desk feeding the multitude of banksters with five quadrillion in infinitely leveraged toxic derivatives and two Treasury bills of a bankrupt nation. In the second half of the show, Max Keiser talks to Joshua Mellors of SocialJusticeFirst.com about financial suicides and the government and banking policies that cause it.
Several FBI agents confided in David Schippers, the Special Prosecutor in the impeachment trial of Bill Clinton, and told him about the where and when of the coming attacks; that they've been blocked from investigations into suspects; and even the revelation of terrorist training camps in the US. Schippers tried several times, unsuccessfully, to relay this information to then Attorney General, John Ashcroft, who had never gotten back to him on any of his requests. President Bush had signed Executive Order W199-I, which basically told the FBI to back off and stated that any agents who interfere with the missions that these suspects were on would be arrested. After being threatened with this, FBI agent Robert Wright, along with Larry Klayman, President of Judicial Watch, got up on national TV and said, "We can't tell you what we know. Here's a letter threatening to arrest us," then added, "all we can [tell you] is the Bushs vacation with the Bin Ladens." The "Flight of Fancy", which provided dozens of Bin Laden family members with FBI-assisted flights out of the country, without interrogation, while private flights were still grounded, virtually solidifies this.

Who is Dave Schippers??
The chief prosecutor in the impeachment trial of Bill Clinton, the man who brought down the Chicago mafia had advance knowledge of the 9/11. In this interview with Alex Jones he tells of the extraordinary effort he made to bring this terror plot to the attention of the FBI, Justice Department, House and Senate leaders he knew and had worked with. Nobody listened...
Paul Moore, former Head of Group Regulatory Risk at Halifax Bank of Scotland, whose claims about risk taking at HBOS led to the resignation of its former boss Sir James Crosby from the UK's financial watchdog, reveals some very interesting insider experiences with the practices of bank lending, sales culture...
He answers some crucial questions:
Do the guys at the top of the banks understand that bank lending creates new money?
Do they consider the impact they have on economy?
Has anything actually changed since the crisis began?
"Incentives are all about sales."
"The Head of Risk himself in retail bank said that they pay no attention whatsoever to risk management."
"The banking crisis drove more than a hundred million people back into poverty, the mortality statistics of people who go into poverty, rise hugely... So, the banking crisis isn't just about becoming poorer, it was about killing people as well."
'the system that operates within banks is on the lines of pied pipers/emperors new cloths and lemmings'
thats a sick ass metaphor...

Type Private Industry Restaurants Genre casual dining Founded 1955 Headquarters near Norcross, Georgia Products Food service, Revenue $524 Million (2009) Parent Waffle House, Inc. Website wafflehouse.com Waffle House is a restaurant chain with over 1600 locations found in 25 states in the United States. Most of the locations are in the Southern United States, where the chain remains a regional cultural icon. The northernmost Waffle House location is in Ashtabula County, Ohio, on State Route 45 off I-90 near the village of Austinburg. Waffle House is headquartered in unincorporated Gwinnett County, Georgia, near Norcross.
The first Waffle House opened on Labor Day weekend, 1955 at 2719 East College Avenue in Avondale Estates, Georgia. That restaurant was conceived and founded by Joe Rogers Sr. and Tom Forkner, who both continue to own a majority of the company today. Rogers had started in the restaurant business as a short-order cook in 1947, at the Toddle House in New Haven, Connecticut. By 1949, he had become a regional manager with the now-defunct Memphis-based Toddle House chain, and was moving to Atlanta. He met Tom Forkner when buying a house from him in Avondale Estates.
Rogers' concept was to marry the speed of fast food with table service and around the clock availability. He told Forkner "...You build a restaurant and I’ll show you how to run it,"’ recalls Tom Forkner.

Forkner suggested naming it Waffle House, as waffles were the most profitable item on the 16-item menu. The fragile nature of waffles also made the point that it was a dine-in, not a carry-out, restaurant, but it confused patrons as to meal availability other than breakfast.
Rogers continued to work with Toddle House, and to avoid conflict of interest sold his interest to Forkner in 1956. In 1960, when Rogers asked to buy in to Toddle House, and they refused, he moved back to Atlanta and rejoined Waffle House, now a chain of three restaurants, to run restaurant operations. Shortly after Joe returned full time, Tom followed suit and left Ben S. Forkner Realty.
After opening a fourth restaurant in 1960, the company began franchising their restaurants and slowly grew to 27 stores by the late 1960s, before growth accelerated. The company is privately held and doesn’t disclose annual sales figures, but says they serve 2% of the eggs used in the nation's food service industry. The founders limit their involvement in management, and currently Joe Rogers, Jr. is CEO, and Bert Thornton is President.
In 2007, Waffle House re-purchased the original restaurant which was sold by the chain in the early 1970s and was most recently a Chinese restaurant. The company restored it using original blueprints for use as a private company museum. The museum is used primarily for internal corporate events and tours but will occasionally be open to the public.
In 2008 one of the biggest Waffle House franchises in the southeast, North Lake Foods, was bought out by Waffle House, Inc. North Lake Foods has been forced to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection as well as close a couple of stores. Waffle House, Inc. plans to rehabilitate the franchise. In early 2009 East Coast Waffles bought NorthLake Foods to become a new franchise.

For years, Waffle House was known as "Waffle & Steak" in Indiana due to another chain of restaurants owning the rights to the Waffle House name in the state.  Reportedly, the original Indiana Waffle House chain has started using the name "Sunshine Cafe". However, the d/b/a for "Sunshine Cafe" belongs to "Waffle House Greenwood Inc.", established in 1981. The oldest "Waffle House" entity listed with the Corporations office of the Indiana Secretary of State is "Waffle House of Bloomington, Indiana, Inc." established in 1967, and like Waffle House Greenwood, it is still an active corporation. (Many of the Waffle House corporations in Indiana have been dissolved.) "Waffle House Inc." of Norcross, Georgia registered with Indiana in 1974. In 2005, the Waffle & Steak restaurants all adopted the "Waffle House" moniker, bringing the entire chain under the iconic name.
In January 2005, customers in four southern states filed suit against Waffle House for racial discrimination. In their complaint, they asserted that servers announced they would not serve blacks, that the servers deliberately served unsanitary food to minority patrons, that servers directed racial epithets at blacks, and that servers became verbally abusive when asked to wait on blacks. Juries exonerated Waffle House in the first two cases, and the plaintiffs were ordered to pay Waffle House's legal costs. In August 2005, a Virginia Waffle House operator settled the lawsuits filed by 12 black, Asian-American and Hispanic patrons.
In 1960, when civil rights demonstrators were picketing many Atlanta businesses, many other businesses closed, but when Rogers saw demonstrators gathering outside a Waffle House, he walked outside, and invited the demonstrators to come in and eat.
Dateline NBC investigation
Apparently inspired by a serious Salmonella problem in 2003 at a Chili's location in Vernon Hills, Illinois, and by four deaths in 1993 from E. coli in undercooked hamburger at a Jack in the Box, the Dateline NBC television news magazine in 2004 investigated sanitation practices of popular American family restaurant chains, measuring the number of critical violations per inspection. The Waffle House averaged 1.6 critical violations per inspection. Waffle House's response to the study pointed out that they prepare all meals in an open kitchen, and consumers can readily observe their sanitation practices themselves.

Much as other open-all-night eateries have (including White Castle, Krystal, Denny's and Krispy Kreme), Waffle House has developed into a cultural icon. Jim Ridley wrote in 1997:
The Waffle House is everywhere in the South. It has inspired country songs, comedy routines, loving editorials, a scene in the movie Tin Cup, even Web sites and Internet newsgroups that breathlessly post late-breaking developments. With more than 1,200 locations in 21 states, as far north as Eastlake, Ohio and as far west as Arizona, Waffle House is cherished by thousands of diners. Regular customers speak of its employees, its customs, and its food with near reverence. Touring musicians have been known to eat five meals a week there. And yet the Waffle House is so pervasive it's invisible. It doesn't advertise; it hides in plain sight.Waffle House is called the "low-rent roadside cafe featuring waffles" in the 1996 romantic comedy movie Tin Cup, and is also shown in the 2006 film ATL. The restaurant is also mentioned in the lyrics of the hit song "Bad Touch" by The Bloodhound Gang. It is also shown in the movie Due Date when the main character is allergic to waffles, even though he picked the restaurant of choice. On the August 15, 2011 episode of WWE Raw, wrestler CM Punk was referred to by fellow wrestler Kevin Nash as looking like "a short order cook from Waffle House" during a promo, which CM Punk replied "Hey, I like Waffle House. I don't know what you got against Waffle House." This has spawned a number of internet memes associating the wrestler with Waffle House and his persona of being the voice of the common man. 
The chain's restaurants almost always have a jukebox which plays 45 rpm singles. Often the entire first column of selections and much of the second have songs about Waffle House and its food. Many of the songs are written and/or sung by people with connections to the chain, such as Mary Welch Rogers. The songs are on ordinary discs which are produced for Waffle House and are not commercially sold, but the chain has made a CD of some of the songs available for sale.
Waffle House provides reservation, candlelight service on Valentine's Day beginning in 2008 with one restaurant in Johns Creek, Georgia and growing into over 30 in 2009.
The servers use a proprietary version of diner lingo to call in orders, and the menu suggests some use of the same lingo when placing orders for hash brown potatoes: "scattered" (spread on the grill), "smothered" (with onions), "covered" (with cheese), "chunked" (with diced ham), "diced" (with diced tomatoes), "peppered" (with jalapeño peppers), "capped" (with mushrooms), "topped" (with chili) and "all the way" (with all available toppings). Recently, the option of "country" had been added for hashbrowns with sausage gravy on them.
According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, Waffle House is one of the top four corporations, along with Wal-Mart, The Home Depot and Lowe's, for disaster response. Waffle House has an extensive disaster management plan with on-site and portable generators and pre-positioned food and ice ahead of severe weather events such as a hurricane. This helps mitigate the effects of a storm on the power grid and the supply chains. The ability of a Waffle House to remain open after a severe storm, possibly with a limited menu, is used by FEMA as a measure of disaster recovery known as the Waffle House Index.
