A National Emergency and Border Security

President Trump Counters Bad Border Deal 

 

By Justin O. Smith

“We want to have a safe country. I ran on a very simple slogan – ‘Make America Great Again.’ If you’re going to have drugs pouring across the border, if you’re going to have human traffickers pouring across the border in areas where we have no protection, in areas where we don’t have a barrier, then, [it is] very hard to make America great again.~ President Donald J. Trump, Rose Garden Speech February 15th 2019

 

President Trump simultaneously declared a national emergency for humanitarian and national security reasons along the border. In the same breath, he noted on February 15th that he would sign the omnibus bill and the bad Border Deal it contains; and in fact, he signed it shortly afterwards, acquiring authority over the $1.375 billion appropriated for the wall, while declaring his intention to spend eight billion more dollars through his authority under the national emergency declaration.

 

The President was left with very little choice from an intransigent, duplicitous Democratic Party leadership in control of the House, at the moment, such as Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who had vowed “not $1 for the wall”. He took a head on approach to avoid another partial government shutdown, however unwise a course it may be, while he diverts $6.5 billion to build portions of the wall that the Democrats have refused to authorize.

 

Americans across the board want The Wall built. These Democrats are against the American people and against U.S. Sovereignty. [Blog Editor: In November 2016, Donald Trump was elected President largely on the promise of a big beautiful wall. YET most recent polls show American disfavor for a border wall. Why? No one can give a definitive answer (unless of course you are a lying Leftist). But here is something to mull over as you hear the Left-Stream Media quote polls most Americans do not want a wall: Those same polls back in November 2016 told Americans Crooked Hillary would win the vote to become President. Those polls were wrong then and I STRONGLY suspect those polls are wrong NOW!]

 

The Republican Party got smoked and beaten badly in this deal. Who in the Hell was negotiating for them?

 

Making the declaration was a strong move for national security and to gain further momentum for the Republicans leading up to the 2020 election, since the Border Deal was a farce of a deal, that only funded 55 miles of the wall, rather than the 200 miles requested.

During his speech on Friday at the White House Rose Garden, President Trump stated: “We’re going to confront the national security crisis on our southern border, and we’re going to do it, one way or another. We have to do it. … We’re talking about an invasion of our country.”

 

Many previous presidents have declared national emergencies prior to this, including George W. Bush and Barack Obama. There were already 31 active national emergencies in the U.S., before President Trump’s declaration marked the 32nd.

 

One should also note, when Obama used his pen to counter U.S. immigration law and implement DACA, to safeguard Illegal Aliens, he eroded U.S. sovereignty, and he went against the Constitution and the express will of the American people. On the other hand, President Trump’s actions are in line with his Constitutional edict to defend and protect U.S. borders and the Constitution.

 

However, the abdication of Congress, in the face of this and many other dire problems, i.e. out-of-control spending, and its relinquishing of its own power and authority over the decades, gave all previous presidents extraordinary power to act in the face of a national emergency, through numerous laws passed by Congress. President Trump has referred to the 1976 National Emergencies Act found at 50 U.S. Code 1601-1651.

 

In light of all this, there is still no way to see this so-called compromise as a anything less than a major loss, once one views the fine print in the Border Deal, which is even worse than it first appeared. It’s the fine print that should have had Republicans turning their backs on this deal. And it’s no wonder the Democrats were in such a rush to sign, not just to avoid a shutdown.

 

Not even 24 hours had elapsed from the introduction of the 1,169 page bill to the vote. House rules require 72 hours for representatives to review a bill.

 

According to Daniel Horowitz, writing at Conservative Review, the bill limits construction to just the Rio Grande Valley sector, disallowing any concrete barriers, while section 231 of the bill prohibits construction even within this area in five locations, that are either state or federal lands. And, much worse, this bill gives veto power to local officials, who may not want the wall in their area.

 

The Rio Grande area is in dire need of significant security measures and an actual physical wall. However, it is home to some of some of the most hardcore “progressive” liberals, and giving these local Democrat satraps a veto over the wall is nothing less than a poison pill.

 

Prior to the President signing the bill, former border officials told Fox News, and several other media outlets, that expanded protections for potential sponsors of unaccompanied migrant children were “land mines” that make the bill worthy of a presidential veto.

 

The Border Deal is one massive betrayal of the American people, in what Daniel Horowitz framed as “a blatant amnesty for the world’s worst cartel smugglers. Section 224 (a) prohibits the deportation of anyone who is sponsoring an “unaccompanied” minor illegal alien; anyone who says they might sponsor an Unaccompanied Child, and anyone who lives in a household with a UAC or a household that potentially might sponsor a UAC. … “the very people paying the cartels to invade us.”

 

This invasion is driven by the intentional skewing of the UAC law, that sets forth what constitutes a true “refugee”. Central American teenagers are only supposed to be treated as refugees, if they are a victim of sex and drug trafficking or have no relatives in America, and yet, nearly each and every one of them is self-trafficked by their own extremely illegal relatives, who reside in America. Rather than saying “No Deal” or forcing much needed changes to the bill, the Republicans went ahead with this miserable fleecing of the American people, which rewards these Illegal Aliens with a de facto amnesty.

 

And from the Center for Immigration Studies, Jessica Vaughn’s interpretation was even grimmer: “We can call this the MS-13 Household Protection Act of 2019.”

 

In justifying his emergency declaration, President Trump repeatedly acknowledged and honored the presence of the Angel Moms in attendance, as he retold the stories of their children’s deaths at the hands of Illegal Aliens. Some of the Angel Moms in the Rose Garden urged the president not to sign the bipartisan bill, noting that it contained several measures that incentivized illegal immigration.

 

At one point in his speech President Trump exclaimed:

 

“We’re talking about an invasion of our country with drugs, with human traffickers, with all types of criminals and gangs. We have some of the greatest people here; I know — they’ve been with me from the beginning of my campaign, almost from the first week — the Angel Moms. Unfortunately, we have new Angel Moms.

 

One incredible woman just showed me her daughter who — we’re talking about killed — in the year of 18. I said, I haven’t seen you before. She said, ‘No, I’m new.’ I said, that’s too bad. It’s too bad. It’s so sad. Stand up, just for a second. Show how beautiful your girl was [in the picture she held]. Thank You.”

 

The President called his actions necessary given the scale of the problem along the southern border, as he responded to CNN Jim Acosta’s suggestion that he had “concocted” an emergency for political gain, whereupon the President responded: “Ask these women [Angel Moms] if there’s a national emergency.”

 

He expects to be met by numerous legal challenges, even as the ACLU sharpens its pencil. He also expects to win in the Supreme Court.

 

Under the Emergency Declaration, President Trump  will attempt to appropriate discretionary military funds to close the gap between the nearly $1.4 billion Congress appropriated for The Wall and the $5.7 billion he has long demanded. However, now the president is reaching for $8 billion, by taking $600 million from the Treasury, the Treasury forfeiture front and $2,5 billion out of the Defense Department. His staff is also looking at using drug interdiction funds and the $3.5 billion they discovered in the military construction budget, that certainly won’t conflict with the President’s constitutional mandate to defend America.

 

Declaring the emergency also puts a companion statute in motion — 10 U.S. Code 2808, that gives the president authority to create military construction projects using funds appropriated for other military projects, such as a $10 billion account approved by Congress last September, for the Army Corps of Engineers, with its military and civilian workforce of 37,000 people.

 

Once he declares an emergency, a companion statute, 10 U.S. Code 2808, says the president can create military construction projects, using funds originally intended for other military projects such as a $10-billion account that Congress approved last September. That money involves the Army Corps of Engineers, with its military and civilian workforce of 37,000 people, which is why a border wall might become a military project

 

Love him or hate him, no one can say that President Donald Trump isn’t standing up for America. He isn’t usurping any powers, not when Congress gave it to him, because they are risk-averse and want to pass the buck to him rather than accept responsibility themselves — dodging accountability and evading its Constitutional duty. Yes — Love him or hate him — President Trump is ideally suited to lead America at this pivotal moment precisely due to his ability to go where no other President would, being a warrior for the American people, whom he so obviously loves

The Democratic Party Endangers America’s Cultural Heritage


This essay by Justin Smith could easily criticized as a White Supremacy racist message. IT IS NOT! Justin is criticizing foreigners desiring to live in America illegally and/or without intention to assimilate to American culture are an unwelcome burden on the American taxpayer (i.e. Red, Yellow, Black and White) and an assault on the Liberty and Values built on the pedestal of American Founding Fathers.

 

If you are a person refusing assimilation or an un-American Marxist in all that ideology’s political deceptions, get over yourself.

The Democratic Party Endangers America’s Cultural Heritage – Open Borders Are National Suicide

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 1/20/2019 7:33 PM

 

America is currently witnessing the harsh reality of a Democratic Party intent on gaining power by any means necessary and so enraged by the election of President Trump, that they will not even acknowledge America and her patriots have a right to determine who and how many enter our nation, under any set of circumstances. The resulting standoff between President Trump and Speaker Nancy Pelosi and their respective supporters has allowed the harsh reality to come home, that the Democratic Party really has become the anti-American Party of Brown Ascendancy; and, the Democrats, such as Pelosi and Senator Chuck Schumer, place more value on their own power and their by and large white-hating communist, socialist, and fascist allies from South and Central America and North Africa and the Middle East, than they do on America’s own citizens.

 

This is an egregious and horrific affront to millions of true American Patriots who have long subscribed to MLK’s admonishment to judge a person not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character, and although many Democrats’ may not intend the “browning of America”, their policies are having that effect. The results are emanating from the Democrat realization that most of these people vote for large centralized government and socialist solutions, which the Democrats are using to their advantage to secure power.

 

No one is walking around saying, “We really need more Guatemalans and Eritreans around here.” If immigration was capped at zero, no one would notice. In fact, if there was a moratorium and the government started aggressive deportations of illegal aliens, even those in the system, most Americans really would appreciate it.

 

And certainly no one, other than the radical socialists and the Democratic Party (One in the same?), would want any more Muslims and their backward, violent and evil Islamic ideology from the Middle East, since they simply don’t fit well at all in a modern Western country. Everywhere Muslim migration has been high, we see terrorist barriers, armed patrols and absurd security measures. In fact, most Americans, the average citizen on the street, would go along with deporting all Muslims. Our efforts to reform and assimilate Muslims has not worked and they can never work. U.S. policy toward all Muslim majority nations should always first be containment.

 

Similarly, sub-Saharan Africans are a no-go. America has a long history of trying to integrate Africans into a European country. It does not work. It does not make any sense to bring a new population of immigrants into America, especially when they have a reluctance to assimilate and a natural hostility towards Europeans. Again, no one is walking around wondering how affairs are in Chad. That and American blacks don’t like African migrants [Blog Editor: Of possible interest – African immigrant perception (from Sierra Leone), Academic themed perception & another Academic themed perception (pdf download & web cache).

 

One must note, Jose Angel Gutierrez, professor of political science and Mexican-American studies at the University of Texas and co-founder of La Raza Unida (the Race United), made the following statement in [FrontPageMag.com posted] 2017: “Our devil has pale skin and blue eyes … if the worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him.”

 

In 2011, a visiting professor of African American Studies at the University of North Carolina, Kamau Kambon stated: “We have to exterminate white people off the face of the planet to solve this problem… the problem on the planet is white people.”

 

This new Democratic Caucus in Congress represents most Muslims, a large Jewish segment, exotic transgender groups, the black church ladies and the college queers, and they all hate one another. Its incoming class is the most diverse in history and includes the first Muslim Congresswomen and the first Native American Congresswoman. However, they all hate the white man more, which is the main focus that keeps them united, as they say in so many words, “White men are the ones keeping you down. You must hate white men.” [Blog Editor: I think Justin is referencing Ann Coulter’s controversial sentiments from mid-December 2018.]

 

The red, radical Democratic Party is all that stands in the way of solving the current border security issue and our immigration crisis, because they do not seem to care that an Open Borders policy means the end of our Republic, as it has stood since 1776. They have turned away from their collective position that voted for the 2006 Secure Fence Act and 700 miles of barriers along the southern border, as Speaker Nancy Pelosi reiterates that she will not consider any deal that includes President Trump’s wall.

 

Democrats have also long held positions against both legal and illegal immigration, just like California Governor Jerry Brown, who stated in 1975: “(It’s strange to say) ‘Let’s bring in 500,000 more (Vietnamese) people’ when we can’t take care of one million (Californians) out of work.”

 

In 1994, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) told ‘Face the Nation’: Border control is a federal responsibility. We simply don’t enforce our borders adequately. [In California] about 2,000 people a day illegally cross the border … about two million [annually] who compete for housing … classroom space … there’s well over 300,000 (on Medicaid) today who are illegal aliens. That presents obvious problems.”

 

The media has focused on the sexual assault of young women and girls in the immigrant caravans and other hardships, while ignoring the real consequences of crimes committed by millions of illegal aliens in America each year and the cries for justice from the Angel Families of the victims. In the past two years, from DHS records, ICE arrested 266,000 aliens with criminal records, which included 100,000 assaults, 30,000 sexual assaults and 4,000 heinous murders. Also, the cost of the illegal drug trade is more than $500 billion, with ninety percent of the heroin and deadly fentanyl coming to America across the southern border, and as noted by President Trump, this is “vastly more than the $5.7 billion we have requested from Congress.”

 

Although the 9/11 terrorists came to America legally and the wall is only a part of national security and border control, wherever walls and barriers have been erected, whether in Korea or Israel, they work. As President Trump recently observed: “There are now 77 major … Walls built around the world … Over 800 miles of Walls have been built in Europe since 2015 (and) recognized as close to 100% successful. Stop the crime at our Southern Border!”

 

So now America has upwards of approximately 22 million or more (no one really knows) illegal aliens in the country, who are influencing the vote and elected positions and laws, who have no idea what this nation was founded upon, working with a limited and or flawed understanding of Judeo-Christian and Western principles and often refusing to assimilate. This has changed our country as much as if we had been conquered by an enemy nation, but because it has happened slowly, even those who see the changes often don’t know how to explain them. And, abandoning assimilation of immigrants guarantees the eradication of essential values and customs that created America to be the envy of all other nations.

 

Do the math. Give 22 million illegal aliens with strong socialist leanings the vote, as planned by Democrats, when historically the biggest landslide victory in American history was determined by several million less votes, and it means a massive pay-off for the Democrats in a permanent electoral majority for the foreseeable future. In a word: Power.

 

For Americans, the real issue is how many South or Central Americans or people of any other nationality we will accept. That quickly reduces to a much simpler question. Do we need any of them? For most of Us, the answer is “No, we don’t need more people.” Therefore, the only question left is, “Are we morally bound to take anyone in for permanent settlement?”

 

Everyone in the world does not have the right to live in America. However, all Americans have the right, through their elected representatives, to decide who immigrates to America and under what conditions. How much more American blood must be spilled before Congress does its job?

 

Our heritage and culture of freedom and individual liberty is now placed in danger by the Democratic Party and large numbers of uninvited people who have no such experience. There is a limit to the number of people that can immigrate to America in a short period of time without changing our culture. Continuing in the direction of the Open Borders desired by the Democrats is national suicide.

 

The solutions are found in building the wall first and followed immediately by the deportation of the illegal aliens already in the U.S. Next, tell Mexico that all legal immigration is halted until they stop illegals from trying to get here from their nation. Prosecute everyone helping or hiring illegal aliens; and start with U.S. governors and mayors. Seize business under RICO of any business caught with five or more illegals in its hire. Tax remittances at the top rate in perpetuity. And finally, stop all legal immigration for at least the next three decades.

 

Until the American people, on the whole, are made to understand the real threat of socialism and communism to their freedoms and liberties, in the public discourse and dichotomy, our nation is on course for a miserable future. We either win this debate, or we prepare for an all-out civil war to rid the nation of the Reds — the Communists and the Socialists. the multiculturalists and diversity crowd — and their white hating allies from South and Central America and various African nations, who are bent on open borders and globalist policies and the destruction of Our national sovereignty and Constitutional Republic, our traditional American way of life.

 

[Blog Editor – Lessons failed to be taught in American schools & colleges:

 

 

 

 

Any sane person intuitively knows that the culture, the law, the stability and the economics of a nation are endangered by massive illegal immigration, especially if that immigration is comprised of a culture that is inherently in opposition to the existing culture. Any normal, reasonable and prudent person instinctively knows that if the make-up of those illegally immigrating to another nation are culturally poor in income levels, job skills, education and hygiene, the cost to the existing population will be a huge, growing and dangerous burden. To allow massive illegal immigration to continue, without trying to stop or impede it, is an affront to the living population and makes a mockery out of the rule of law. To establish sanctuaries for illegal aliens, whether by government or religious organizations, openly and blatantly violates the rights of legal citizens. Those political or religious leaders who are proponents of massive illegal immigration, open borders and illegal alien sanctuaries are traitors to the nation and its people, and they should be summarily fired, charged, prosecuted and placed in prison.

The House Creates Funding but the President Manages the Spending


John R. Houk

© January 18, 2019

 

President Trump put the brakes on Speaker Pelosi’s intention to use taxpayer money to finance a Dem Party political junket to Brussels, Egypt and Afghanistan. This news went viral on Conservative Social Media yesterday.

 

The President’s stated reasoning was because Pelosi and Dems refuse to negotiate a political settlement to the government shutdown and funding the border security Wall.

 

Most realize the probable true reason was because Pelosi tried to silence President Trump from using the State of the Union (SOTU) Address to influence Americans about Dem Obstructionism. Pelosi – typical of a Democratic Party operative – LIED about security concerns for the SOTU due to the lack of government shutdown funding. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and the Secret Service repudiated Speaker Pelosi’s security funding propaganda.

 

GOOD FOR TRUMP! If Pelosi is so concerned about government funding she and her MSM propaganda tools should not complain about President preventing a Dem Party foreign junket on government funds not available due the shutdown.

Blue State Blues: Shutdowns Are Different When Republicans Fight Back

 

By Joel B. Pollak

January 18, 2019

Breitbart

 

Nancy Pelosi

 

Spare, if you will, a moment’s pity for Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY). They are not exactly enjoying the government shutdown as they might have hoped.

 

Pelosi had already packed her bags and boarded the Air Force bus Thursday, along with a sizable delegation of House Democratic leaders, for her overseas junket.

 

She and her comrades were, no doubt, looking forward to touring NATO’s billion-dollar-plus new headquarters in Brussels; posing for selfies on camelback by the pyramids in Egypt; grinning for photo-ops with the troops in Afghanistan.

 

Then the order came from President Donald Trump to prohibit her use of government aircraft.

 

Fly commercial, he suggested. There is a government shutdown going on, after all.

 

And, as Trump noted, 800,000 federal workers will continue to go unpaid — unless Democrats stay in town to negotiate.

 

The bus went ’round the block and back.

 

Pelosi’s shock must have been quite something to observe.

 

She is not used to being treated like this, you see. She apparently expected she could cancel (ahem, “postpone”) the State of the Union address due to the shutdown — and then disappear abroad.

 

Trump’s response — blocking Pelosi’s use of the aircraft — was gutsy. It was a “drain the swamp” moment.

 

 

But the timing was pure comedy gold. (Adam Schiff, stepping off the bus, looked like he’d seen a Russian.)

 

In a statement, Pelosi’s spokesman protested that the purpose of the trip had been “to affirm the United States’ ironclad commitment to the NATO alliance,” something the president had already done earlier that day.

 

Her real goal was to conduct an alternative foreign policy — as she did after being elected Speaker in 2007, when she paid a friendly visit to Syrian butcher Bashar al-Assad.

 

Pelosi’s flack complained that President Trump himself had flown to visit the troops in Iraq early in the shutdown.

 

But Trump is the commander-in-chief, and Pelosi is not. How jarring for her to be reminded that although she might pretend the Constitution grants her equal power to the president, only Trump can turn the bus around.

 

It was just the latest setback for Pelosi in the shutdown fight.

 

She and Schumer insisted on equal television time after Trump’s Oval Office address last week — only to be mocked mercilessly for odd staging and absurd makeup.

 

Pelosi must have thought her State of the Union gambit would be a winner. And it was — with the media.

 

Politico’s lead headline Thursday morning blared: “PELOSI PLAYS HARDBALL.” The article added: “The bold move also sent the unmistakable signal that Pelosi holds all the cards in the lower chamber.” A separate article in Politico declared: “Donald Trump may have finally met his match in Nancy Pelosi.” It described her as “satin and steel.”

 

CNN’s Chris Cilizza also chimed in, praising Pelosi’s “major power move.”

 

But her decision was soon exposed as a major blunder.

 

First, Pelosi’s stated justification — security concerns — was quickly debunked by the Secret Service and Department of Homeland Security. (In other words: she lied.)

 

Second, by refusing to hear the president’s speech, Pelosi effectively gave Trump license to give his speech anywhere — in the Senate, perhaps, or in a football stadium, far beyond the frowns of Pelosi’s new majority.

 

Believe it or not, Trump is winning the shutdown.

 

True, polls suggest a majority of Americans blame him — not a surprise, since he told us he would be “proud” to take responsibility. And a National Public Radio poll suggested that there are “cracks showing with his base.”

 

Moreover, though the public is somewhat inoculated against the media’s usual shutdown horror stories — they have cried wolf too many times before — there could be some real hardship ahead.

 

Yet Trump is winning — because he is fighting back.

 

That is partly a consequence of his position: the White House always has the advantage in a negotiation with Congress, especially a divided Congress.

 

But Trump is also winning because he is fighting harder — and smarter — than any Republican has before.

 

He began by picking the right battle. The one reason for which the public — or enough of the public — might forgive a government shutdown is national security. And Trump has framed the border issue as a national security problem, not a question of immigration policy.

 

That means the shutdown can never be entirely his fault: it is his duty, as commander-in-chief, to refuse to sign a budget that places Americans in danger.

 

Trump does not need to convince the polls that he is right. He knows if he begins to solve the problem, his support will return.

 

Pelosi and Schumer are somewhat new to problem-solving. They have also never seen a Republican who fights back. That is why they are losing the shutdown.

On Chain Email and Amendment Process


John R. Houk

© January 8, 2019

A friend sent a Facebook private message pertaining to a so-called 28th Amendment to the Constitution. The theme of the proposal is to place restraints on Congress to insure every law passed for American citizens must also apply to members of Congress. AND Congress members will not be entitled to any special privileges not available to American citizens.

 

My suspicions arose with the message sentiment encouraged readers to pass it on if you agree.

 

BUT WAIT! I just realized I was sent a 28th Amendment back July 2017. I posted my thoughts back then under the title, “Faux 28th Amendment, Yet Still Need Convention”. You can compare my thoughts back then (which I believe are similar) to today’s post surrounding a 28th Amendment Chain Email.

 

According to Truth or Fiction fact-finding there is absolutely no truth to the Chain Email.

 

HOWEVER, after reading the chain email you might want to forward or share the Amendment info to your Representative and two Senators in Congress on a Federal level. The Chain Email 28th Amendment is quite worthy as an actual proposal to be considered by Congress or the various State legislatures who call for a Constitutional Amendment Convention. Ergo, if inspired, send the Amendment info to your local State legislators for consideration on the Establishment of the dreaded Constitutional Convention of States to bypass the gridlocked lobbyist-dominated Federal Congress.

 

There are two methods to amend the Constitution as listed in the U.S. Constitution:

 

Constitution Article 5

 

The Congress, whenever two thirds of both houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose amendments to this Constitution, or, on the application of the legislatures of two thirds of the several states, shall call a convention for proposing amendments, which, in either case, shall be valid to all intents and purposes, as part of this Constitution, when ratified by the legislatures of three fourths of the several states, or by conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other mode of ratification may be proposed by the Congress; provided that no amendment which may be made prior to the year one thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any manner affect the first and fourth clauses in the ninth section of the first article; and that no state, without its consent, shall be deprived of its equal suffrage in the Senate. (Article V, U.S. Constitution; National ArchivesFederal Register)

For simplicity purposes here is my summary of the two Amendment methods:

 

Method ONE: Proposed Amendment ratified by 2/3 of each House of Congress, then the proposed Amendment sent to each State Congress in which case if ¾ of the States ratify the proposed Amendment, it becomes law.

Method TWO: 2/3 of the several States call a Convention on a proposed Amendment or proposing of Amendments plural, then if ¾ of the several States approve the Amendment or any Amendments plural, it or they become law.

For greater details of interest:

 

 

The biggest concern about a Constitutional Convention is the representative delegates from each State may go rogue and re-write the entire Constitution. In which case a battle of ideologies takes place and God only knows if it actually results in Amendments sent to State Congresses to decide on ratification or an impasse resulting in a Civil War.

 

Due to the potentiality of an anti-Founding Father sentiment among delegates from several States, I have not looked favorably on the calling of a Constitutional Convention. HOWEVER TODAY, I sense ideological gridlock among American voters between proponents desiring more clarity of the Founding Fathers’ vision and proponents of a transformed America which Secular Humanist moral relativity becomes a Globalist-Multiculturalist foundation for a rule of law.

 

Inherent in that gridlock of vision are the seeds of Civil War in which winners determine America’s Socio-Political moral-grounded future.

 

If a Convention can hearken back in a spirit of compromise that both Left-Right ideologies can live with as performed by the Constitutional Convention that gave America it’s present Constitution, then and only then can a Civil War be avoided.

 

The current struggle between President Trump standing with Conservative principles on the issue of Border Security/National Sovereignty and Open Borders/Globalist-Multiculturalists is a mere symptom of how ideological gridlock could develop into violent confrontations between supporters of each divergent agenda.

 

Frankly, I do not have a vision in which non-violent political compromise is possible. I for one cannot compromise on God’s principles discovered in His Holy Word with those who look upon humanity-defined moral relativistic principles of governance. I am guessing the many-to-most feel the same on defending transformative principles. Only time and the irony of God’s plan for proceeding to His designed future will tell. A period of godless temporary victories are predicted in the Holy Bible (via an arbitrary abbreviated view in the Book of Revelation [aka Revelation of Jesus Christ to John or Apocalypse of John and so on]):

 

Revelation 11: 3-13; 13: 1-8, 11-17; 17: 6-18; 18: 21, 23-24 (NKJV)

 

Revelation 11:3-13

 

And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth.”

 

These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands standing before the [a]God of the earth. And if anyone wants to harm them, fire proceeds from their mouth and devours their enemies. And if anyone wants to harm them, he must be killed in this manner. These have power to shut heaven, so that no rain falls in the days of their prophecy; and they have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to strike the earth with all plagues, as often as they desire.

 

When they finish their testimony, the beast that ascends out of the bottomless pit will make war against them, overcome them, and kill them. And their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also [b]our Lord was crucified. Then those from the peoples, tribes, tongues, and nations [c]will see their dead bodies three-and-a-half days, and not allow their dead bodies to be put into graves. 10 And those who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them, make merry, and send gifts to one another, because these two prophets tormented those who dwell on the earth.

 

11 Now after the three-and-a-half days the breath of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and great fear fell on those who saw them. 12 And [d]they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, “Come up here.” And they ascended to heaven in a cloud, and their enemies saw them. 13 In the same hour there was a great earthquake, and a tenth of the city fell. In the earthquake seven thousand people were killed, and the rest were afraid and gave glory to the God of heaven.

 

Revelation 13:1-8

 

13 Then [a]I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having [b]seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name. Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast. So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?”

 

And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to [c]continue for forty-two months. Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven. It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every [d]tribe, tongue, and nation. All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

 

Revelation 13:11-17

 

11 Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. 12 And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 13 He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. 14 And he deceives [a]those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. 15 He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has [b]the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

 

Revelation 17:6-18

 

I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. And when I saw her, I marveled with great amazement.

 

But the angel said to me, “Why did you marvel? I will tell you the [a]mystery of the woman and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and the ten horns. The beast that you saw was, and is not, and will ascend out of the bottomless pit and go to [b]perdition. And those who dwell on the earth will marvel, whose names are not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, when they see the beast that was, and is not, and [c]yet is.

 

“Here is the mind which has wisdom: The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits. 10 There are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come. And when he comes, he must continue a short time. 11 The beast that was, and is not, is himself also the eighth, and is of the seven, and is going to [d]perdition.

 

12 “The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast. 13 These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast. 14 These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful.”

 

15 Then he said to me, “The waters which you saw, where the harlot sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues. 16 And the ten horns which you [e]saw on the beast, these will hate the harlot, make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire. 17 For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled. 18 And the woman whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth.”

 

Revelation 18:21, 23-24

 

21 Then a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying, “Thus with violence the great city Babylon shall be thrown down, and shall not be found anymore.

 

23 The light of a lamp shall not shine in you anymore, and the voice of bridegroom and bride shall not be heard in you anymore. For your merchants were the great men of the earth, for by your sorcery all the nations were deceived. 24 And in her was found the blood of prophets and saints, and of all who were slain on the earth.”

 

It would be irresponsible of me to inform you the above described socio-political disaster of looming godless victories may actually coincide with a potential American Civil War or even to stipulate today’s political gridlock suggests the doom of the Founding Fathers’ political experiment of Freedom and Liberty. BUT in mind, the scenario does possibly exist.

 

If the above timing is imminent, I have GOOD NEWS!

 

The same Book of Revelation telling humanity of the foreshadowing of doom and gloom, culminates with the ultimate VICTORY of God’s Plan over the rebellious-godless:

 

Revelation 19: 19-21; 20: 1-3, 7-10, 14-15; 21: 1-5, 22-27; 22: 6-7, 14-17 (NKJV)

 

Revelation 19:19-21

 

19 And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army. 20 Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone. 21 And the rest were killed with the sword which proceeded from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse. And all the birds were filled with their flesh.

 

Revelation 20:1-3; 7-10; 14-15

 

20 Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years; and he cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, so that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished. But after these things he must be released for a little while.

 

Now when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison and will go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea. They went up on the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city. And fire came down from God out of heaven and devoured them. 10 The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where[a] the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.

 

14 Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second [a]death. 15 And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.

 

Revelation 21:1-5; 22-27

 

21 Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. Then I, [a]John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”

 

Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said [b]to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.”

 

22 But I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. 23 The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine [a]in it, for the [b]glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light. 24 And the nations [c]of those who are saved shall walk in its light, and the kings of the earth bring their glory and honor [d]into it. 25 Its gates shall not be shut at all by day (there shall be no night there). 26 And they shall bring the glory and the honor of the nations into [e]it. 27 But there shall by no means enter it anything [f]that defiles, or causes an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.

 

Revelation 22:6-7; 14-17

 

Then he said to me, “These words are faithful and true.” And the Lord God of the [a]holy prophets sent His angel to show His servants the things which must shortly take place.

 

“Behold, I am coming quickly! Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book.”

 

14 Blessed are those who [a]do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city. 15 [b]But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie.

 

16 “I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star.”

 

17 And the Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely.

Please read 28th amendment

Please Read, and forward.

 

This will only take 1 minute to read!

28th Amendment,

35 States and Counting.

 

It will take you less than a minute to read this. If you agree, please pass it on. It’s an idea whose time has come to deal with this self-serving situation:

 

OUR PRESENT SITUATION!

 

Children of Congress members do not have to pay back their college student loans. Staffers of Congress family members are also exempt from having to pay back student loans. Members of Congress can retire at full pay after only one term. Members of Congress have exempted themselves from many of the laws they have passed, under which ordinary citizens must live.

 

For example, they are exempt from any fear of prosecution for sexual harassment. And as the latest example, they have exempted themselves from Healthcare Reform, in all of its aspects. We must not tolerate an elite class of such people, elected as public servants and then putting themselves above the law.

 

I truly don’t care if they are Democrat, Republican, Independent, or whatever. The self-serving must stop. Governors of 35 states have filed suit against the Federal Government for imposing unlawful burdens upon their states. It only takes 38 (of the 50) States to convene a Constitutional Convention. If each person that receives this will forward it on to 20 people, in three days most people in The United States of America will have the message.

 

Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution:

 

“Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to the Citizens of the United States …”

 

This is an idea that should be passed around, regardless of political party. Congressional Reform Act of 2017

 

  1. No Tenure / No Pension. A Congressman/woman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they’re out of office. And, no more perks go with them.

 

  1. Congress (past, present, & future) participates in Social Security. All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, and Congress participates with the American people. It may not be used for any other purpose.

 

  1. Congress must purchase their own retirement plan, just as ALL Americans do.

 

  1. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.

 

  1. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people.

 

  1. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people (i.e. NO MORE INSIDER TRADING!!!).

 

  1. All contracts with past and present Congressmen/women are void.

 

The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen/women. Congress made all these contracts by and for themselves. Serving in Congress is an honor and privilege NOT a career.

 

The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators should serve their term(s), then go home and go back to work … not get all kinds of freebies. Just hold your finger down then hit forward and send it to everyone you know. Let’s help get the country straightened out.

A Proposed 28th Amendment That Says ‘Congress Will Make No Laws That Does Not Apply to Them’?

A rumor that has been around for years periodically finds new life in email forwards and on social media — but it’s still not true.

By Truth or Fiction

March 17, 2015

 

United States Constitution over an American flagwynpnt / Pixabay

 

Claim

 

More than half of the United States has signed on to a proposed “28th amendment” to the Constitution.

 

Rating

 

Not True

 

Reporting

 

A forwarded-email-turned-social-media-post about a proposed “28th amendment” to the United States Constitution pops up periodically as a viral rumor. There are variations, but the gist of it goes something like this:

 

Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States.

 

The email then asks readers to forward the message, a demand that should always spur further fact-checking.

 

The Truth:

 

There is no official campaign for a 28th amendment beyond its being proposed in this forwarded email (or social media post.) Some versions of this rumor were lent credence by phony numbers, when they began circulating with the allegation that 35 states have filed sued against the government while proposing a “28th amendment.”

That number is not accurate. States had actually filed suit against the Affordable Care Act, known colloquially as Obamacare, claiming at the time that the health care law was unconstitutional and violated the rights of individuals by forcing them to buy health insurance by 2014 or face penalties, as articles from 2011 explained:

 

There have been at least 26 federal lawsuits seeking to overturn the health reform law. In the six biggest decisions, three panels of judges have supported the constitutionality of the law, and three have ruled against it — with one major appellate decision expected any day from an appeals court in Richmond, Va.

Both sides pledge to take the issue all the way to the Supreme Court, which may decide to take up the case as early as this fall.

The 11th Circuit Court sided with 26 states — mostly led by conservative governors and attorneys general — who are asking for the law to be blocked in its entirety. Their primary argument is that that forcing Americans to buy health insurance oversteps the bounds of the Commerce Clause in the Constitution, which allows the government to regulate economic activity. But the decision to forgo health insurance is not an economic activity and can’t be regulated, they say.

 

Somewhere along the line, the reportage about the ACA was folded in with this chain email, likely to lend it more weight and spread it farther. However, the two issues are not related.  The viral posts and chain emails begin by claiming that members of Congress do not pay into Social Security. As we have previously reported, that is a rumor so outdated as to attain full “hoax” status.

The email also said that congressional members would exempt themselves from any proposed healthcare reform package.  Members of Congress and most government full time workers already have a healthcare package. The proposed healthcare reform began with the purpose of offering healthcare for those not already covered.

For all these reasons, we rate this claim Not True..

 

A real example of the eRumor as it has appeared on the Internet:

 

For too long we have been complacent about the workings of Congress. Many citizens have no idea that members of Congress can retire with full pay after only one term, that they don’t pay into Social Security and that they have specifically exempted themselves from many of the laws they have passed (such as being exempt from any fear of prosecution for sexual harassment). “Ordinary” citizens must live under all those laws.

The latest travesty is that Congress will exempt themselves from the Healthcare Reform that is being considered…in all of its forms. Somehow, that doesn’t seem quite right. We do not have an elite class that is above the law. I truly don’t care if they are Democrats, Republicans, Independents or whatever.  The self-serving must stop.

This is a good way to do that. It is an idea whose time has come.  Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution:

“Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States”.

Each person contact a minimum of twenty people on their email address list, in turn ask each of those to do likewise.

In approximately three days, all people in the United States of America will have the Message. This is one proposal that really should be passed around.

 

Other Version:

 

Subject: 35 STATES SO FAR AND GROWING!

I hope you will all send this to as many people as you can. Thanks.

35 States So Far & Growing

SOUNDS LIKE WE’RE ON THE RIGHT PATH—FINALLY!

Governors of 35 states have filed suit against the Federal Government for imposing unlawful burdens upon them. It only takes 38 (of the 50) States to convene a Constitutional Convention.

This will take less than thirty seconds to read. If you agree, please pass it on.

This is an idea that we should address.

For too long we have been too complacent about the workings of Congress. The latest is to exempt themselves from the Healthcare Reform that passed … in all of its forms. Somehow, that doesn’t seem logical. We do not have an elite that is above the law. I truly don’t care if they are Democrat, Republican, Independent or whatever. The self-serving must stop.

If each person that receives this will forward it on to 15 people, in three days, most people in The United States of America will have the message. This is one proposal that really should be passed around.

Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution: “Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States …”

You are one of my 15

 

And another version with celebrity endorsement:

 

Just 3 States short!

This is what Mark Levin has been talking about a constitutional convention by the states to get back to the laws of the Constitution.

This will take less than thirty seconds to read. If you agree, please pass it on. I believe this is an idea that we should address.

35 STATES SO FAR…..IT’S GROWING

One message to forward!

Governors of 35 states have filed suit against the Federal Government for imposing unlawful burdens upon them.

It only takes 38 (of the 50) States to convene a Constitutional Convention.

For too long we have been too complacent about the workings of Congress.

If each person that receives this will forward it on to 15 people, in three days, most people in The United States of America will have the message.

This is one proposal that really should be passed around.

Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution:

It takes very little to govern good people. Very little. And bad people can’t be governed at all” ~ from ‘No Country for Old Men’ 2005

 

After President Trump’s tenure, whether it is four years or eight, America is a dead nation walking, a ghost of what once was in the fight between right and wrong and good and evil, as evidenced by Nancy Pelosi’s smile, full of malice and bad faith, like the smile on statues of the Aztec sun god, who demanded thousands of hearts to eat to prevent the end of the world. The world may not be ending for America, but the sight of the newly elected ragtag cast of anti-American Muslims and Socialists, taking their seats in Congress, is reminiscent of Ray Bradbury’s tale of heartbroken carnival freaks and a shadowy ringmaster on a mission from the heart of darkness, and it does not bode well for our institutions, the rule of law or America, unless conservative America effectively counters Socialist propaganda and indoctrination and starts fighting back tooth and nail to preserve the republic and our liberty.

 

The new Democratic majority Congress is all revved up, with the fervor of religious zealots, to continue its pursuit of toppling President Trump, through an inquisition that is designed to weaken, disable and impeach the man, who they view as the Golem of the White House, representing all that is wrong with America. The heart of their mission is to undo a heresy and the results of the 2016 presidential election, and they are willing to use thumbscrews, waterboards, bamboo splinters and any means necessary to accomplish this, or so it does seem.

 

Newly elected Michigan Democrat, Muslim Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib put her party’s goal in plain, course terms, just hours after swearing in on the Koran. At a rally hosted by MoveOn, a socialist group, near Capitol Hill, this Muslim radical Hamas supporter aimed her remarks at President Trump, and she stated she would help her Democratic Party to “impeach the m…..f…er.”

 

Simpleton California Congressman Brad Sherman immediately filed his articles of impeachment, with the glee of a little boy, in hopes of impressing his San Fernando Valley constituents out for deplorable blood. And while Speaker Pelosi cautioned that some bit of a predicate crime was required, all Democrats are hopeful that Special Counsel Mueller will deliver the needed “proof” when he hurls down his accusation from on high.

 

President Trump will shortly have a new Attorney General at the Justice Department, William Barr, who might ask Mueller whether or not he has looked into the malfeasance and corrupt acts of the Justice Department and the FBI. Barr might also might ask: Has all that monkey business in politicizing government agencies and scheming to undo President Trump, even turned up as a footnote in the holy grail of the Mueller report? Although America’s anti-American sectors of the Democratic Party are salivating over its potential content, it has now been delayed by a six month extension of the “investigation.

 

The obvious double-standard that currently exists has many Americans aghast and void of any respect for “the Law”. It is all too clear Justice is dead in America. The accusations against President Trump drive this point home, especially when all of Conservative America understood that the Clintons, and even former president Obama, committed high crimes against the United States and should have been dressed in prison orange by now.

 

President Trump or anyone in his administration hasn’t done anything that remotely approaches Hillary Clinton’s and Barack Obama’s crimes. Surely America hasn’t forgotten Hillary’s email scandal as Secretary of State and her destruction of thousands of emails under a Congressional subpoena or the Clinton Foundation’s “pay for play” and the selling of the State Department favors and the illegal sale of America’s uranium resources to Russia. Surely America recalls Obama used government agencies, like the IRS and the FBI to illegally target conservatives; that his administration sold firearms to Mexican drug cartels resulting in numerous deaths from these weapons, including a U.S. Border Patrol officer; and the lies Obama told regarding the murders of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, Glen Doherty, Tyrone Woods and Sean Smith in Benghazi. However, any suggestions that all of these require further investigation are shouted down by the Democrats and the Leftist media. And finally, what about the collusion between the FBI, the State Department, the Clinton campaign and Obama’s White House to undermine candidate Trump’s bid for the presidency and his presidency?

 

Even worse, the investigations into government corruption by Inspector General Michael Horowitz and Utah U.S. Attorney John Huber were, in fact, a cover-up. They hid the truth rather than sought it out, as they protected the criminals rather than charge them. And grand juries were never empaneled on the pertinent facts.

 

In the meantime, Hillary Clinton now smiles like an aging Cheshire cat, as Julian Assange is trapped like a tiny mouse, and the red, radical commie rats take over the U.S. House, chuckling to see our Courts side with black-robed mullah’s and Muslim misogynists against the reproductive rights of young girls and in favor of female genital mutilation. How humorous she must find Chief Justice Robert’s rebuke of President Trump and a conflicted rogue “special counsel” ruining the lives of good men and bad men alike, just so long as they connect to Trump, all with the blessings of a complicit Orwellian Fourth Estate.

 

Americans cannot fall into a trap of their own, morally paralyzed by believing there’s nothing to be done, becoming the hollow men of T.S. Elliot’s poem. For those patriots who understand what true liberty and the rule of law means, it is our duty to fight, fight, fight and set this country right, if we wish to save the Constitution and the Republic. Let the Circus begin on Capitol Hill, and help the Democratic Party towards its own destruction, as all its darkness and malice are placed on full display, so America can be restored to Her senses and traditional values and truly work for Her citizens — We the American people, backed by institutions that restore our faith in our government.

Why Isn’t the Largest Terror-Funding Case Being Prosecuted?


The Obama DOJ nixed prosecution without credible reason of Islamic terrorist funding by the so-called charity known as the Islamic Relief.

 

No surprise there, BUT what will the Trump Administration and the Trump DOJ do about it?

 

Write the President and your members of Congress (Senate and House) to stir some investigation!

 

The Clarion Project highlights this issue with an interview with Ryan Mauro (about 15 minutes) highlighting potential Islamic Relief criminality.

Clarion Project’s National Security Analyst and Director of the Clarion Intelligence Network Ryan Mauro personally worked on a case that would have been the largest terror-funding case in the U.S. The case involved Islamic Relief, one of the world’s largest Islamic “charities.”

 

After his briefing, three government agencies were prepared to go ahead with prosecution, but the Obama administration declined. Find out why in this interview with Mauro below and see if the Trump administration has picked up the ball.

Clinton Whistleblowers: Thursday’s Public Hearing to Reveal “Explosive” Information


It’s been about two years (give or take) since Crooked Hillary and Slick Willie evidence began to be exposed to the public. A lack of smoking gun dot connections, a coverup-minded Obama Administration and a colluding Mainstream Media (MSM) have protected the Clintons for quite some time.

 

So, I wait with baited breath in hope this Sara Carter article will prove true that a hearing before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee are deserving recipients of criminal Justice.

So readers, I’ve been using a seven year old laptop to fulfill the old blogging habit. My lovely wife sprang for a Christmas upgrade. I’m a relatively small-time blogger but with a consistently growing readership despite some token censorship from the liberal-oriented blog and social platforms. Still looking to defray the Christmas costs.

Clinton Whistleblowers: Thursday’s Public Hearing to Reveal “Explosive” Information

Crooked Hillary

 

A trove of documents on the Clinton Foundation alleging possible pay for play and tax evasion have been turned over to the FBI and IRS by several investigative whistleblowers, who will be testifying in an open hearing before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Thursday, according to the committee and lawmakers.

 

Roughly 6,000 documents that are expected to reveal the nearly two-year investigation by the whistleblowers with a private firm called MDA Analytics LLC, which allegedly turned over the documents more than a year and a half ago to the IRS, according to John Solomon, who first published the report last week in The Hill

 

The whistleblowers are former federal criminal investigators, who allege that the Clinton Foundation was “engaged in illegal activities and may be liable for millions of dollars in delinquent taxes and penalties,” according to Solomon.

 

The Department of Justice and the FBI’s Little Rock, Ark. field office, which is believed to be investigating the foundation, have allegedly obtained the documentation from the whistleblowers as well, according to lawmakers who’ve spoken with the whistleblowers.

 

Clinton Foundation officials could not be immediately reached for comment.

 

However, a former whistleblower, who has spoken with agents from the Little Rock FBI field office last year and worked for years as an undercover informant collecting information on Russia’s nuclear energy industry for the bureau, noted his enormous frustration with the DOJ and FBI. He describes as a two-tiered justice system that failed to actively investigate the information he provided years ago on the Clinton Foundation and Russia’s dangerous meddling with the U.S. nuclear industry and energy industry during the Obama administration.

 

William D. Campbell’s story was first published by this reporter in 2017. He turned over more than 5,000 documents and detailed daily briefs to the bureau when he served as a confidential informant reporting on Russia’s nuclear giant Rosatom. Campbell worked as an energy consultant, gaining the trust of Russians and providing significant insight into Russia’s strategic plans to gain global dominance in the uranium industry. He reported on Russian’s intentions to build a closer relationship with Obama administration officials, to include then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, as reported. The documents he turned over to the DOJ, which were reviewed by this news site, showed Campbell had also provided highly sensitive information both related to the uranium case, as well as other intelligence matters, since 2006.

 

Special Counsel Robert Mueller was the director of the FBI at the time Campbell was a confidential informant and according to Campbell, the information was briefed to Mueller by his FBI handlers.

 

Rep. Mark Meadows

 

“(Mueller) received the documents, copies of which I still have, over a period of years and ignored a national security threat to the United States because of his political preference,” said Campbell, who said he is frustrated that the investigation into the Clinton Foundation and the other information he provided was apparently ignored years ago.

 

“These men were in charge of transport of nuclear materials (inside the United States) while committing criminal activity here in the United States and signing major US utility contracts,” said Campbell, referring to the information he provided the FBI on the American company Transportation Logistics International, also known as TLI, was the primary transport company for Russian enriched uranium sold to the United States.

 

“One teacup of what they were transporting both domestically and abroad could close down Wall Street or Washington,” Campbell warned. “(Mueller) ignored and delayed their arrests over years while I was risking my life undercover and interacting with these (Vladimir) Putin appointees both here in the United States and overseas.”

 

But Rep. Mark Meadows, chairman of the Freedom Caucus and member of the committee, said this time it will be different. He noted that the investigation is apparently ongoing with the FBI and DOJ and believes the information being delivered for Thursday’s hearing to be ‘explosive’ in nature and may help connect the dots.

 

Meadow’s told Fox New’s Martha MaCallum Tuesday, “the American people, they want to bring some closure, not just a few sound bites, here or there, so we’re going to be having a hearing this week, not only covering over some of those 6,000 pages that you’re talking about, but hearing directly from three whistleblowers that have actually spent the majority of the last two years investigating this.”

 

Meadows, who’s also on President Donald Trump’s short-list to replace Chief of Staff Gen. John Kelly, noted that some “allegations (whistleblowers) make are quite explosive.”

 

“We just look at the contributions. Now everybody’s focused on the contributions for the Clinton Foundation and what has happened just in the last year,” he said. “But if you look at it, it had a very strong rise, the minute she was selected as secretary of state. It dipped down when she was no longer there.”

 

“And then rose again, when she decided to run for president. So there are all kinds of allegations of pay-to-play and that kind of thing,” Meadows added.
