Erik Prince, the reclusive owner of the Blackwater empire, rarely gives public speeches and when he does he attempts to ban journalists from attending and forbids recording or videotaping of his remarks. On May 5, that is exactly what Prince is trying to do when he speaks at DeVos Fieldhouse as the keynote speaker for the “Tulip Time Festival” in his hometown of Holland, Michigan. He told the event’s organizers no news reporting could be done on his speech and they consented to the ban. Journalists and media associations in Michigan are protesting this attempt to bar reporting on his remarks.  Read this story in its entirety at RebelReports

    Don’t worry about that Erik… Superman has discovered that former Blackwater Contractor’s have 2 plus years of audio recordings and some video dealing with your management, policies, procedures, illegal activities, and so on. And if you think you can hide one your Cody, Wyoming property good luck. When the hammer of justice comes down. Your CIA friends wont be able to hide you either. Your protection team are Americans and will protect this country before you they will turn you in when the time comes. Your lawyers won’t be able to help you. Sleep well.
