The operator of a leading alternative news and strongly anti-war website has become the target of nefarious thugs apparently in the employ of the U.S. government who have continually harassed him and ordered him to shut down his website.

Tom Feeley, owner and editor of, has endured public harassment, home invasions, death threats and threats to his family simply for running a website.

Counterpunch writer Mike Whitney has circulated an e mail describing what happened to Feeley in an attempt to draw attention to the matter.

Whitney writes that earlier this week Feeley’s wife was startled to suddenly discover three well dressed men standing in her kitchen who told her that Tom must “Stop what he is doing on the Internet, NOW!”

To emphasize the point, the thug pulled back his jacket to reveal a gun while barking out the warning.

Tom’s wife was hysterical and refuses to go back to the house. She contacted the FBI but was told there was nothing they could do.

According to Whitney, “The well-dressed man told Tom’s wife that he knew where her son lived, what line of work he was in, and how many children he had.”

Subsequently, two men in a parked car a block from Tom’s mother’s house were spotted using laptops and sped off when they were approached by Tom’s son.

A similar incident had happened four years previously, when Feeley was approached by a stranger in the parking lot of Long’s Drug store in Southern California, after being forced to remain in his car by an accomplice who blocked him from opening the car door. The man told him, “You need to stop what you are doing on the web”.

Tom said the man was overweight and had his shirt untucked. Tom was taken aback, but (after collecting himself said) “What the fuck? Who do you think you are telling me what I can do?”

The man answered, “Tom, I’m just giving you some good advice. You should take my advice, Tom.”

Alex Jones has experienced similar intimidation tactics on several occasions in the past, particularly the scenario that happened to Tom in the parking lot as well as thinly veiled threats against his family.

In every single instance, the best response is to stand up and be vocal in the face of such harassment. Mafia-like thugs only continue to feed on those who put up with such treatment. The most dangerous thing to do is cower and acquiesce to the will of tyrants.

These kind of tactics will only succeed if the thugs think their actions can have any kind of effect. Every time someone in our movement is intimidated or harassed, we should respond only by re-doubling and intensifying our efforts.

I’ll tell you this about Tom Feeley; he is no bullshitter,” writes Whitney, “He is the “real deal” and completely committed to exposing the mob that is presently running our country. He does not understand why, (as he says) “They are reaching down SO far to get someone who just runs web site”. But, the truth is, they are. Someone wants him to “shut up” and they apparently have the muscle to do it. He knows he is in danger.”

Feeley is ditching his cellphone and maintaining a low profile but to his credit, refuses to cave in to the threats and will continue to publish his website.

Drawing attention to Feeley’s situation is of paramount importance to ensure his protection and also to combat head on attempts to create a chilling atmosphere and intimidate journalists and website publishers.

Publicity Efforts...

Who were these thugs?

Government agents?

It just seems really weird that they'd go after a little known website owner like this...

Tom Feeley is discussed

(bandwidth is on the house)

This is BS

Tom Feeley & ICH is one of the best alternative media sites out there he's done a lot for the movement and has woken up millions of people, they had better lay off him and his family

Support ICH and Tom Feeley

Patrick , The go after Tom because he is doing something right. ICH is a lot better known than you seem to think. I expect the thing that really gets to them is the ICH constant update of American Iraq war deaths and costs.
The Neocon cockroaches hate the light and Feeley shines it into their darkest corners.

Why ICH is threatened

The subtitle of the ICH web site says it all:

"News you won't find on CNN or FOXNEWS".

I have read the ICH web site for years and it has always kept a rational approach, hosting mostly high quality and very critical articles. That's what these thugs do not like.

The purpose of their threats is to intimidate Tom to the extent that he loses his composure and becomes less critical in his choice of articles he hosts. That would make it easier for them to label him a nutter. Something similar has happened to Alex Jones: though he has some good stuff, he seems to me as having become oversuspicious of many things. That might not be strange if you receive such threats, but the effect is that Alex has now less credibility than he should have. Tom indeed is doing something **very** right to get this unwanted attention.

I wonder whether this is the standard treatment for journalists and web publishers that don't follow the Party line. Anyway, it is time to pay more attention to the contents of ICH!

Its to get us all to "self censor"

I believe its called "terrorism".

HI PERP'S "fear" informed citizenry...

Without media controls such as Mockingbird Media over the years, the HI PERPS could not have pulled off 75% of their malfeasances. Therefore, they spend an amazing amount of time, creativity and energy when the citizens begin to educate themselves. what the 9/11 Truth Movement will be best known for...seeking and distributing information to the citizenry, which in turn, will expose and end our domestic tyrranny. why I continue to support CI...Civil Informationing as a fundamental way to be when in public.

Instead of "putting off" citizenry, lets calm down and inform them. Every time that we get another citizen into the "9/11 Rabbit Hole", we gain another more well informed citizen even if they do not focus upon 9/11 and move into their own issues using the new tools that they have just discoovered.

The 9/11 Truth Movement is flat out revolutionary regarding tracking down the HI PERP's malfeasances...

CI...Civil Informationing [an offshoot of the 9/11TM] is also revolutionary in that eventually it will instruct "past and future activists", of a FAR better way to "be in public" when activising [new word], especially when compared to last century's clumsy, ineffective, "changing opinion only", and more than anything else, terribly inefficient public protest tactics that are woefully outdated.

If people of peace read this, please visit check out a "new way" to get info out, and start smaller and more frequent "public actions" in your immediate areas.

Public actions where you "go to" where the public is gathered or travelling through, and hand out info instead of the usual:
...going to nowhere... front of noone...
...chanting and marching only to yourselves...
...and handing out information to yourselves that you had just gotten from yourselves...

People of Peace...there is a better way to be...its time for a change...its time for a "great leap forward" Billy Bragg croons...


...that are the gifts that Truthers bring to the table...

Wouldn't it be nice to have millions of folks state that they have become: "911 Peace Truthers"...
