Intro to Sutliff ‘FOIA Reveals Shredding in FEMA or Worse!’

Paul Sutliff may have uncovered yet another Obama Administration scandal involving radical Islamic elements within the U.S. borders. The scandalous Obama behavior is not surprising. And yet you have to know that the Mainstream Media which is so intent to bring down President Trump will not report on another Obama scandal, right?
This is what Paul is looking into: He believes that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is granting Federal funding to American Muslim organizations that either linked to radical Islam or tied to Islamic terrorism. Here is a soundbite from a 2015 article on the subject from Paul Sutliff:
FEMA created the Non-Profit Security Program (NSGP) to provide assistance to non-profits targeted and/or threatened by terrorist organizations. The intent was to help targeted organizations in high threat areas of the country, it was not to provide funds for people who defend terrorists. (FEMA is Funding Muslims in America Who Support Terrorism; Paul Sutliff on Civilization Jihad; 9/14/15)
You’ll read below that Paul is still looking at FEMA and Islamic terrorist funding connections AND that FEMA is not cooperating with his FOIA requests which points to the potential Obama scandal.
The grant money comes under the aegis of NSGP. Here is a paragraph description of the FEMA program:
The Nonprofit Security Grant Program plays an important role in the implementation of the National Preparedness System by supporting the development and sustainment of core capabilities. Core capabilities are essential for the execution of each of the five mission areas outlined in the National Preparedness Goal (the Goal). (Nonprofit Security Grant Program)
I’ve got to ask: What the heck does a National Preparedness Goal have to do with Islamic-American organizations with ties to foreign Islamic organizations that favor the institution of a global Caliphate?
Here is the FEMA National Prepared Goals under the introduction section says:
The National Preparedness Goal defines what it means for the whole community to be prepared for all types of disasters and emergencies. The goal itself is succinct:
“A secure and resilient nation with the capabilities required across the whole community to prevent, protect against, mitigate, respond to, and recover from the threats and hazards that pose the greatest risk.”
These risks include events such as natural disasters, disease pandemics, chemical spills and other manmade hazards, terrorist attacks and cyber attacks.

Hmm … FEMA is giving money to Muslim American organizations that support a Jihad Caliphate agenda quite contrary to the U.S. Constitution?
Now for the Paul Sutliff thoughts on FEMA.
FOIA Reveals Shredding in FEMA or Worse!

“These are not the droids your looking for.”
“There is not the information your looking for.”
When Obi-won Kenobi of Star Wars comes to mind when you are trying to get information from the federal government something is wrong! I wrote a Freedom of Information Act request to FEMA on August 31, 2015 regarding the awarding of grants to these three entities under the Nonprofit Security Grant Program.
|#||Name and Info||Amount|
|1||ISLAMIC SOCIETY OF BALTIMORE MD INC.||$74,675|
|2.||ISLAMIC CENTER OF SAN DIEGO, INCORPORATED||$71,250|
It took them over a year to fill my request. However, in saying they did fulfill the request they also denied my request. They simply sent me a print out from USA Spending.gov. Something you or I can access at home on the Internet. I reached out to the people in the FOIA office for FEMA explaining that I had received copies of applications before and that I had previously been sent a copy of the required confirmation of the claims. Which in the one case I received, was a police letter. This became an article on awarding a grant to those who support terrorism and an example of awarding a grant with confirmation of a threat.
So imagine my surprise when I received the following statement from the FOIA person working at FEMA on February 15, 2017:
After our discussion on the phone last week, as promised I did reach back out to the component within FEMA to double check that there was no additional information that was missing from your FOIA request. There was no applications found and so it cannot be provided to you. The program office is aware of the FOIA process and conducted multiple searches and no records were located regarding the applications.
To our knowledge on this Grant Program, FEMA would only consider the Grant applications (E.G. the four corners of the documents) and not any additional threat assessments or documents that may be provided by the non-profits.
After receiving this I called the FOIA Officer and informed her I was filing a complaint with the Inspector General. Which I did that day! To say that an organization that approves grants did not keep a copy of the application or the supporting material is either a lie or evidence of shredding federal documents!
Maybe I should apply for the $20,000 award for evidence of the Obama administration shredding offered by Wiki Leaks? While the cash is a great motivator I would rather have the Trump Administration do some heavy stomping in FEMA and shake the tree that is hiding this information!
One other possibility exists regarding this “missing information.” It is that FEMA under the Obama Administration was awarding NPSG funding to Islamic organizations without even receiving a grant. This is “misappropriation of funds.” How can I make such damning accusations that FEMA has to have this documentation? The answer is simple.
The FEMA site claims that groups filed out applications. I have received evidence of this also through past FOIA requests.
I even checked to see if there was a different way to file a FOIA for this information if the state FEMA awarded the funding. But as you can see below the state FEMA sites are federal sites and the FOIA requests go through DHS and more specifically FEMA.
Since 2013 this FEMA program has award $56,000,000 to nonprofits claiming to be under a terrorist threat. I have only scratched the surface here. What if the majority of the organizations awarded never had confirmation of a threat? This too is misappropriation of funds!
I do not know about you, but I for one am very concerned that organizations such as CAIR that have been directly linked to Hamas in federal courts would receive any federal funding. It gets worse when you consider some of our allies have placed CAIR on a terrorist list. Did we fund the enemy of our allies? Sadly the answer is yes.
What can we do as American citizens to stop this? My only suggestion is to email or call the White House and voice your concerns.
