Cyndi Steele Appeals for Your Help

September 17, 2010

Cyndi G. Steele
P.O. Box 1255
Sagle, ID 83860

Dear Friends of Edgar Steele:

Edgar J. Steele has been entrapped by a legal system that presumes his guilt in the face of false charges. Ed has been in jail and solitary confinement for three months in Spokane, Washington because of false allegations that he masterminded a murder-for-hire plot to kill me and my mother.

I have NEVER believed that Ed was involved in such a plot.

Ed has defended the politically incorrect for years; people who, were it not for him, never would have had representation. Those who oppose Ed hate the truth and have threatened to harm Ed, me and our family in the past. Clearly, he is a political prisoner of the USA and quite literally, he is fighting for his life. There is a growing number of people who are banding together to make it possible for Ed to have the defense he needs against bogus government charges. We are asking you to join us.

Here is the bottom line: without experts to prove that false government tape recordings are only imitations of Ed’s speech patterns (using voice cloning technology), and without experts to present the truth about alleged explosives, Ed will be “sent to the gallows” for something he didn’t do.

We have an opportunity to prevent this great injustice. This is not the first time the government has made false criminal allegations against innocent people. Thus, it is our choice whether we want to be a part of the movement to stop this kind of government-sponsored insanity. Let me tell you, we sincerely need your help.

I humbly ask for your assistance, as I am financially strapped and unable to raise the amount of money necessary to provide a proper defense for my husband. [NB: The federal government has seized and frozen all of Edgar Steele's assets in order to make sure he is unable to pay for a competent defense. - HAC] Any financial gift you can make will go directly to the Ed Steele Defense Fund, to be placed in an attorney’s trust account and to be used exclusively for Ed’s defense. Contributions of $50.00 and $100.00 will be greatly appreciated as we try to make our goal of $250,000.00 needed to pay both attorney fees and the legal costs of this case. Time is critical as we need to have a new attorney on board soon who will work for Ed.

Edgar needs an attorney who is willing to challenge the FBI’s conduct and show that the government is wrong. Edgar can’t move forward without your help in funding his defense. Your kind financial assistance will help us to engage a qualified attorney (who has already been contacted) who believes in Ed’s innocence and will work vigorously to protect Ed’s rights and confront the government.

These are tough financial times. But, please give a moment to think about my husband, sitting in a jail cell, day after day, with no hope, not even able to help in his own defense. I can’t visit him with him to give him hope or moral support, because the judge has entered a very unfair “no-contact” order.

Even the smallest donation will go a long way to help win this case and expose the corruption behind the false charges. It may even help others who also face false accusations by the government.

Please make your contribution check / money order payable to:

The Edgar Steele Defense Fund
P.O. Box 1255
Sagle, Idaho 83860

(Funds will be held in an attorney’s trust account.) Or, go online and donate by credit card and through PayPal at:

My sincerest and most heartfelt thanks for your time in considering this plea for help,

Cyndi G. Steele

Radio Free Northwest Commentary 9-16-2010

Major league Edgar Steele update this week.

On September 7th in federal court in Coeur d’Alene, Edgar Steele’s wife Cyndi finally stepped up to the plate, and legally speaking she may have knocked one out of the park. Maybe, if we can get anybody to pay attention to what she’s saying. That court date was supposed to be a plea bargain hearing for Larry Fairfax, the federal informant who manufactured a pipe bomb and attached it under Cyndi’s SUV. Fairfax was going to get a sweetheart deal which would basically allow him to do a few months of cushy time in a minimum security facility and then walk out the gates, provided of course that his testimony convicted Edgar Steele, who is the real target of this bizarre little psychodrama from the Age of Obama.

What Cyndi did was use a little known aspect of the law, the right of the victim of a crime to file an official and legal objection to a plea bargain involving the crime committed against her. She and her mother-in-law Mrs. Kunzman both filed legal objections to Larry Fairfax’s sweetheart deal in exchange for his testimony against Edgar Steele. In doing so I won’t say they’ve blown the lid off the case, since the news media has been silent on it except for one article in the Bonner Daily Bee and nobody has yet heard Cyndi’s story because of this media blackour, but they have given us far more information about what has been going on in this loathsome frame-up than anyone else so far. At long last, we are getting a glimpse at the inner workings of this sickening case.

I might also add that Cyndi only did this after the U.S. Attorney prosecuting the case, a woman named Traci Whelan, repeatedly refused to return her calls or to discuss the case with Cyndi. It became so glaringly obvious that Cyndi was just being blown off by the government that she said to hell with all this low profile crap, something is rotten in the state of Denmark here and I’m gonna start sounding off.

The key words here are from one of the federals’ own court documents describing Fairfax’s criminal actions as part of the plea bargain deal. In fact these words may be inadvertent; some clerk typist in the U. S. Attorney’s office or some dumb FBI agent who doesn’t know how to write a report may have slipped up and let the cat out of the bag. I quote “Fairfax and another individual, not identified in the documents, drove to Oregon to check whether the pipe bomb was still on her vehicle. They didn’t see it and returned to Idaho assuming it had fallen off.”

This is the first word we have had of anyone else being involved in the alleged murder plot, and yet the FBI has refused to publicly identify or arrest this second individual. In other words, there was not one but at least two federal informants involved in framing Edgar Steele. My guess is that the unidentified person was Fairfax’s handler. Who knows, maybe John Doe Number Two in the Steele case was actually a badge carrying federal agent? Now, what do you want to bet that this John Doe Number Two is made to disappear from the narrative just like the John Doe Number Two in the Oklahoma City bombing? Yeah, I know, that doesn’t really apply, since the identity of the Oklahoma City John Doe Number Two has been known for years, but you folks understand what I mean.

In her objection to the judge, Mrs. Steele demanded to know who Fairfax’s accomplices are so she can protect herself from them. She wants them brought to justice, which is unlikely if the kingpin, Fairfax, is allowed to get off easy.

Here’s where it gets nasty. According to Mrs. Steele’s affidavit, at the time of her husband’s arrest the FBI told her that there were still multiple accomplices of Larry Fairfax and her husband Edgar Steele quote-unquote “out there,” allegedly circling like sharks waiting to kill her, and that was why she had to go into hiding, never speak to the media, and why she must never attempt to contact her husband or ask him what the hell’s going on.

I have been wondering about that. Now, when a woman has been married to a man for 30 years and all of a sudden she is informed that her husband has allegedly tried to hire a hit man to kill her, you would think that the first thing such a woman would want to do would be to march right in and demand some kind of explanation or at least hear his side of the story. You’d think after 30 years she owed him that, at least. Cyndi Steele apparently didn’t, and for a while that puzzled me. Well, now we know why. The Federal Bureau of investigation frightened the living bejesus out of her by conjuring up images of assassins with sniper’s rifles and silenced pistols in her closet and hiding under her bed.

Also, a comrade of ours pointed something out, and that is that the federal court’s no-contact order is in practice mutual. It’s just that, it’s not a restraining order, it’s not an Ed mustn’t contact Cyndi order, it’s just what it says, a non-contact order, and Cyndi can’t contact her husband without violating the order. In other words Cyndi is just as much prohibited from talking to Edgar as vice versa. Steele himself is now facing an additional ten years for sending his wife a birthday card and speaking to her on the phone, in a call that was set up by the authorities especially to incriminate him. The régime wouldn’t even allow the two of them to meet for the discussion of their financial affairs, such financial affairs as they have since the régime seized and froze all of Edgar Steele’s assets so he couldn’t hire a competent attorney. Somebody sure as hell doesn’t want Edgar and Cyndi Steele getting together and comparing notes.

That was the one of the first circumstances that led me to believe that there really is a frame-up going on here. If the government’s case is really so solid, and if they have Steele bang to rights on these alleged audio and video tapes soliciting the murder of his wife and mother in law, then why do they need all this skulduggery? Why not bring in Cyndi Steele for a big confrontation and videotape the whole thing? Their so-called evidence can’t be all that convincing if they are afraid that Steele might persuade his wife of his innocence simply by talking to her.

Here is Cyndi’s version of events as contained in her affidavit, and by the way, these affidavits are available for your inspection and edification online in .pdf format. The URLs are too long and complicated for me to read out loud here but I’ve posted them on my blogs and you can e-mail me directly at and I’ll send them to you.

In late May of this year Cyndi Steele took an 18-day journey from her home in North Idaho to Portland, Oregon to be with her mother, who has been ill. In the early morning hours of June 11, 2010, the FBI went to visit Mrs. Steele there, the same day they arrested her husband on so-called evidence supplied by Fairfax, the man who actually planted the bomb and who was allowed at that time to remain free.

However, according to the affidavits of both Cyndi Steele and her mother, instead of warning Mrs. Steele that they had a report of a bomb under her car, the FBI agents sat outside the house for two hours for unknown reasons. Now remember, the official story was that Fairfax had supposedly come forward on June the 8th, allegedly filled with horror at the thought of being solicited to commit murder, and so you would think the FBI would have been aware of the pipe bomb at the time of the visit. But they neither checked under the car for the bomb themselves, nor did they call the Portland bomb squad, nor did they have the car impounded so it could be inspected.

Instead, Obama’s Finest allowed Cyndi Steele to drive 450 miles back to North Idaho with a bomb under her car, where on June 15th she pulled into a Jiffy Lube and the attendant pointed out an object attached to her exhaust system, a pipe with some wires and several sticks of dynamite. Not a black powder pipe bomb as originally claimed by the FBI and the media, but a real life dynamite job of the kind the Mob refers to as tail-piping. That’s another piece of disinformation spread by the media but contradicted by the actual court documents. The local bomb squad was called in to neutralize the device and U.S. Highway 95 had to be shut down for several hours as the bomb was blown up in a controlled detonation, so yes, it worked and it
would have killed Cyndi Steele or anyone riding in the vehicle.

Why didn’t the FBI in Oregon take immediate action, not only to warn her, but to neutralize the bomb? If the bomb had detonated in a populated area when Mrs. Steele hit a pothole or other obstruction in the road, it’s possible that many people would have been killed, and yet the FBI did nothing. The only thing they have come up with by way of an explanation is that Larry Fairfax, uh, “forgot” to mention during his debriefing that he had already wired dynamite to Cyndi Steele’s car. That’s a pretty big oops, there, Larry.

Do you believe that? I don’t. I think those federal agents knew perfectly well that Cyndi Steele’s car was rigged to explode and they deliberately left it so that Cyndi would be killed and that would lend credibility to their case against the husband Edgar, who is their real target. I think the FBI and the U.S, Attorney have have received orders from the Obama régime in Washington, DC to get Edgar Steele and they don’t care how they do it. After all, a dead Cyndi Steele couldn’t gum up the works and throw a monkey wrench into the system by believing in her husband and filing inconvenient affidavits in court, now, should she?

Something really off kilter is going on here. Why would the government enter into a plea bargain with a confessed criminal whose accomplices are at large, when the FBI allegedly believes they still want to kill the victims? The government routinely makes deals with mobsters like Joe Barboza and Sammy Gravano who have killed dozens of men, but I admit I’ve never heard of anything as blatant as this happening before. Why is it that these other individuals, whom the FBI told Cyndi Steele exist, have not been charged with a crime since the U.S. Government claims to know who they are, including the one who accompanied Fairfax to Oregon to check on whether the pipe bomb was still on her vehicle, and was clearly knowledgeable of the crimes being committed by Fairfax.

Why is the U.S. government protecting the identity of a co-conspirator who has complete knowledge of the entire scenario and who was physically present when a very important part of the crime was being committed? Isn’t a co-conspirator someone who offers assistance, such as helping Fairfax check on the bomb?

I think the answer is obvious. At least one of the so-called other conspirators is either a long-term federal informant or a badge-carrying FBI agent who was acting as Larry Fairfax’s handler and they don’t dare to reveal his or her name.

Fairfax was about to lose his house in foreclosure. He stole thousands of dollars of gold and silver bullion from Edgar Steele while acting as his handyman, and he needed a way to cover up those thefts. But then again, maybe Fairfax had another source of income. There have been a number of other inconsistencies in the dribs and drabs of evidence that the FBI has allowed to leak out which indicate that Fairfax was already a federal informant when he first met Edgar Steele and he may have been sicced on Steele deliberately.

The Obama régime is clearly trying to break Steele. After Steele’s arrest and after two phone calls which appear to have been arranged by the government in order to incriminate and entrap him, Steele was held incommunicado in isolation, without visits from friends or family for almost six weeks. For some weeks the Spokane County jail denied that Steele was there and said the U.S. Marshals had taken him away to an undisclosed location; it is still not known whether Steele was in fact removed from the jail and taken elsewhere for a time, since he has not been allowed any uncensored or unmonitored communication with anyone. A public outcry and a letter and phone campaign from Mrs. Ingri Cassel of the Idaho Observer to state senators and representatives finally forced the government to reveal Steele’s whereabouts and allow him correspondence and visitors, although right around that time the Spokane County Jail mysteriously changed their rules so that inmates can now only receive post cards.

Another interesting thing recently came out; Cyndi Steele has fired the attorney she had and is in the process of looking for a new one. One wonders whether her previous long silence was due to bad legal advice she was getting and who was actually signing this attorney’s checks.

One final note: both the affidavit from Cyndi Steele and the ones from her mother are couched in required legalese form, and yet they pointedly contain favorable references to Edgar Steele. It’s easy to read between the lines: Cyndi and her mom don’t buy the feds’ wild story about Steele hiring Larry Fairfax as a hit man. So that’s one question answered: Cyndi Steele and her mom are standing by their man. That’s the first good news in this foul case since it started.
As to who the unnamed “accomplices” of Larry Fairfax are who remain at large, I think it’s fairly obvious—they are federal informants or possibly even badge-carrying agents, hence the mysterious inability of the FBI to apprehend them. If I were Cyndi Steele or Mrs. Kunzman, I would be a hell of a lot more afraid of the FBI than I would be of Edgar Steele sitting alone and isolated in his prison cell and dependent for his defense on a paid employee of the very system that’s trying to destroy him.

Cyndi Steele Finally Gets It

Many people may be wondering why Edgar Steele's wife, Cyndi, hasn't come forward in defense of her husband until now.

For the reasons stated below, Cyndi will stay in relative seclusion for the time being. She is in the process of hiring a new attorney to protect her rights and the rights of her family (things did not work out with the attorney who was representing her before). This will give her and the family some breathing space to have active representation while they go about their lives. Now that the Feds have shown that they are not willing to prosecute the other unnamed accomplices of Larry Fairfax who are involved in this case, Cyndi realizes that taking a low profile to allow the FBI to do their job, simply will not do any good.

The Steele family needs all the support that can be mustered. Please send the information below to anyone interested. Most of the old questions should be answered. As always, when there is new information available, it will generate a myriad of new questions.

Cyndi will be able to answer and respond to legitimate questions and concerns now that the Feds have proven their true colors and shown her that keeping a low profile really serves no purpose.

You may explain the following to anyone who asks: "Why has Cyndi been in seclusion?":

1) On the day that Ed was arrested, the FBI warned Cyndi that Larry Fairfax had certain unnamed accomplices who were "out there" or who were at large and that they had an active plan to kill her and her family;

2) The FBI promised that they had, or would, arrest the unnamed accomplices of Larry Fairfax whom they had identified and prosecute them for their crimes (giving her the impression that she and her family would be protected from these criminals who were known to the FBI, but who were still at large);

3) Cyndi believed the FBI and has kept a very low profile, not wanting to interfere with the FBI and their investigation; and, of course, not wanting to put her life or the lives of her family in jeopardy while they all waited for the Feds to round up these "bad guys" so that she and her family would be safe;

4) By the middle of last week, when a plea bargain with Larry Fairfax was scheduled for 4:00 p.m. today and the prosecutor, Traci Whelan, failed to call her back after Cyndi tried to reach the prosecutor on August 26th about the Fairfax plea bargain, Cyndi could see that the Feds were going to give Larry Fairfax a "sweetheart plea deal" without even consulting her and that his unnamed accomplices still had not been identified or arrested or charged or prosecuted; and

5) Finally, Cyndi decided to come out of seclusion and demand her legal rights as a victim, guaranteed by Congress, to object to the Fairfax plea bargain. Cyndi has demanded that she and her family be protected - and she has demanded that the Fairfax unnamed accomplices be brought to justice, because these unnamed accomplices are partly responsible, as co-conspirators, for the crimes against her and her family (that includes of course the planting of a bomb under her vehicle).

Note: There is no question that the feds know who these people are because they told Cyndi so; but, they are not telling anyone else and they have not arrested them, which makes it appear that they are protecting them. So, what's that all about?

Fairfax Pleads, Second Informant Confirmed

The Bonner County Bee confirms that Larry Fairfax has signed a plea bargain agreement with the government. Also, for the first time, reference has now been made in a legal document to a second federal informant active in the case who has not been identified.

Sorry About Hiatus

Sorry about the lack of updates, guys, but we're in one of those long "nothing happening" phases in any criminal case where everybody just sits and twiddles their thumbs waiting for a trial date that may or may not happen.
