The Epiphany

Now I See The Light

 

By Justin O. Smith
Sent 3/17/2019 4:01 PM

 

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Bernie Sanders, Amy Klobuchar, all the other Democratic presidential candidates, and all the other communist and socialist curiosities have finally broken through my clouded, obtuse logic, with their resounding, sublime and superb nuanced intellectual arguments, and now I am proud to say that I have finally awakened to just what an ignorant reprobate and low-life sinner, living in moral darkness and beyond redemption, I have been. Their efforts have led to my reformation, and now I join them in their calls for white people to pay reparations for slavery, even though I once thought anyone calling for this was as crazy as Ol’ Uncle Buttermilk, living under the bridge on South Church St. and roasting fat rats on a spit.

 

Once, it seemed to me, as though someone had put brain-softener in the water coolers in the halls of Congress, daft as most of the leadership had become; but now I say, “bring on the reparations for everyone who has been a slave and pay them an enormous amount of the federal taxpayers’ dollars, without any exceptions”. Reparations are not a joking matter for anyone.

 

My life was changed by the young and old Communists alike and the epiphany that followed and made me release all my slaves by that evening’s sundown. My brother helped me count them up, not an exact count but by even dozens, and I resolved to be certain they were paid the million dollars owed them. Not one would want for a five-hundred dollar pair of Jordans. My conscience is washed clean as the driven snow in the Light of the Lord.

 

I confess my crime of having once been a conservative thug, who wanted to bomb every country that wasn’t allied with America, and some that were. But Praise Heaven — I’m now a liberal, from Google to Facebook to Twitter, and I now don’t have the sense God gave a crab apple, as they used to say in Craigsville, W. VA., and I’ve crossed the aisle.

 

The liberals, the commies and socialists, all once seemed so desperate to find something to claim as their guilt, their burden, so they could atone as publicly as possible and hold it over the rest of society, the Conservatives and Christians, airing out their inner goodness like washed white sheets on a clothes line. Since most of them had never done anything wrong, they had to find something they hadn’t done. Surely slavery fit that bill.

 

This opened wide horizons of the burdens of guilt-cleansing and the satisfaction of penance. Yea, I say verily unto thee, my brothels and cisterns … Eerrrr Uhh… Brothers and Sisters, I have discovered the deep well of sins that I had no part of committing and for which I must repent: the Rape of the Sabine Women, the sack of Constantinople in 1204, and many others. Oh what guilt! I will send Prime Minister Erdogan and the Turks twenty dollars U.S. in the mail today.

 

In those dark days of erroneous conservative views and false righteousness, I thought blacks owed whites reparations for burning America’s cities, like Ferguson and Baltimore. Rebuilding them is a great inconvenience to all Americans and costs the states and the nation billions of dollars.

 

However, this presented me with a problem, I haven’t quite figured out yet. Keeping everything politically symmetrical, if you can be guilty of something you didn’t do, perhaps you can’t be guilty of something you really did do — You know — like turning a habitable, productive city into a burned out shell of a no-go zone.

 

This made me also consider affirmative action. I have shocked my own senses by the reprehensible things I wrote in my former state of racial villainy. Galled to my very soul. I am shamed by my suggestion, that if you were good enough you didn’t need affirmative action, that if you needed it you weren’t qualified by any merit, and if you accepted it you were a parasite. Truly, this was unpardonable.

 

Still confused, I wonder, if we hire people because they can’t do a job, shouldn’t we favor the functionally less capable even more? Shouldn’t we discriminate in favor of the slightly incompetent at the expense of the hopelessly incapable? Using incompetency for hiring qualifications is the only baseline and the road to social justice.

 

Logically, this brings up cultural appropriation. Whenever a white person wears a Mexican sombrero to  a Cinco de Mayo celebration, they are appropriating the Mexican culture without a license, and God help them — if permitted by separation of church and state proponents —  if they should attend a costume party as Michael Jackson. These actions are horribly atrocious and barely distinguishable from torching entire cities.

 

America should democratize all of these new ideas and any solutions that result should include everyone. Nothing could be more fair than making everyone eligible.

 

Whenever blacks and most Native American tribes (Seminoles the exception) use arithmetic, writing and automobiles and cellphones, they are committing cultural appropriation of white European culture, and they have been for years, which is extremely shocking. Clearly reparations must be required from them, retroactive. I accept cash or money orders.

 

In considering this injustice, one must agree that the only way to attain the righteous pinnacle of the socially correct socialists and communists of America is to license white culture. A pay by the use method, say so much per hour for listening to Isabelle Geffroy or Tchaikovsky, or so much per book read, would be tedious, so we could just provide a fixed yearly amount for all members of Black Lives Matter and La Raza [Blog Editor: NCLR & LRU], for unlimited reading, arithmetic, the use of buildings, television and antibiotics thrown in for good measure. Essentially, to avoid a massive data transfer, the license fee for using white culture should equal the amount of reparations paid for them not having been slaves, that would make it a wash.

 

Once a thuggish conservative — Oh the torment — I saw racism as an insidious evil devouring the very heart of society, like a piranha gnawing through a fallen cow. Racism revealed itself everywhere, or so I thought: in the Knockout Game that hospitalized whites; in the murders of Dallas Police Officers and the assaults on white speakers by Black Lives Matter and in entire neighborhoods where a white man did not lightly dare to walk. And now I see these are simply troubled youths crying for help, pleading for understanding by delivering concussions.

 

I understand now, and so, I’m moving to Venezuela. [Blog Editor: Venezuela Marxist analysis – HERE & HERE]

The Still Report: #QAnon is a Deep State PsyOps Operation

The Still Report: #QAnon is a Deep State PsyOps Operation

Conservative Firing Line

 

#QAnon fans aren’t going to be real happy to know they’ve been suckered by a Deep State PsyOp after viewing Bill Still’s recent revelation.

 

On January 5, 2019, Bill Still of The Still Report broke a long period of silence about #QAnon to express his view that it is a deep state operation designed to quiet the conservatives until 2020 when Clinton’s crimes can be buried by a new liberal administration.

On January 5, 2019, Bill Still of The Still Report broke a long period of silence about QAnon to express his view that it is a deep state operation designed to quiet the conservatives until 2020 when Clinton’s crimes can be buried by a new liberal administration. .

 

We encourage other conservative pundits to end their silence about QAnon, because as Bill Still has demonstrated, it actually had a positive impact on his revenues (and a limitless benefits to America). READ MORE]

 

Since the beginning of the #QAnon phenomenon, I believed it to be a hack job. With so many friends buying into it, I held my tongue lest they deride me for voicing my opinion without losing their friendship. Now we have the evidence to support the thesis, thanks to Bill Still of The Still Report.

 

QAnon devotees have achieved near cult status if you follow your friends on social media. Other media outlets have bought into the phenomena also by adding the letter “Q” to their names so as to be identified as followers of the “Cult of Q.”

 

Call it what you like, but that is what I call it because of its’ cult-like nature and their following. We encourage other conservative pundits to end their silence about the #QAnon phenomenon, because as Bill Still has demonstrated, it has actually had a positive impact on his visibility on the Internet for having the courage to call it out as fake news psyop that it really is.

VIDEO: Q Nonsense – Are Military Tribunals Underway??, 2509

 

[Posted by The Still Report

Published on Jan 5, 2019

 

 

Synopsis:

I’m sick of this “Q” nonsense! “Military Tribunals are about to get underway. Tens of thousands of sealed indictments.” What is the average person supposed to believe?

 

Now, I must admit, I’m no “Q” expert. I’m only one guy, plus a good wife. There are only so many issues we can keep track of to render reasonable opinions to you, our audience. I sensed from the beginning that “Q” was some sort of fake. However, my wife, Beth, is the Twitter person and so she gets exposed to the rumblings from the “Q” volcano of secret knowledge whether she likes it or not. So, I’ve pretty much left “Q” tracking to her.

 

Beth and I agree on this: Q is a deep-state disinformation operation – and not a particularly elaborate one at that. What has been the basic “Q” agenda in the past. Don’t worry, the good guys are preparing a massive trap for the deep state and any day now, their mighty jaws are going to snap shut and throw all the bums in the slammer.

 

Has any of this happened? We were told that Jeff Sessions was about to do his job as Attorney General any day now. But Sessions did absolutely nothing in regards to sweeping away the Trump/Russia cloud which READ ENTIRETY]

Good evening, I’m still reporting on: The Surprising Results of Being Q uebed, 2510

 

Synopsis:

 

Well, I certainly didn’t expect to be doing yet another report on the Q phenomenon, but the reaction was so extreme, it, in itself, is newsworthy to me in that it gave me a lot more direct data to form my opinions. Of course, the Q’s expected me to apologetically crawl away and hide in a hole.

 

Hmmm. No. I’ve learned to step it up in such situations, otherwise it just gets worse. So in the words of the immortal Warner Wolf: “Let’s go to the video tape.”

 

So typically, the ratio of thumbs up to thumbs down for my vids is between 50-to-1 and 100-to-1 or better. This one is 2.5 to one. So, no matter how you Q-folk try, you are still outnumbered by over 2 to 1.

 

Another interesting aspect is the loss of subscribers – about 250. That’s a lot, but I’ll make it back in less than one week READ EMTIRETY]

LOOK OUT! I Committed Blasphemy in Pakistan


John R. Houk

© March 15, 2019

I have mentioned that I operate three blogs:

 

  1. SlantRight 2.0

 

  1. NeoConservative Christian Right (NCCR)

 

  1. Ubiquitous8Thoughts

 

The first is a Blogger platform. The second is a WordPress platform. And the third is an OverBlog platform (located in France under EU rules).

 

A couple of days ago I received an email from WordPress Support notifying me the government of Pakistan had contacted WordPress over one of my posts. The Support Team informed me they weren’t going to censor my blog but if I did not remove the alleged content the NCCR blog would be banned from the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.

 

Here is the content of the WordPress Support email:

 

Mar 12, 19:33 UTC

— End complaint —

 

It looks like I will not be travelling to Pakistan anytime soon. Pakistan actually shows the legal code my “Blasphemous” content breaks.

 

So, quoting the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority:

 

Pakistan Penal Code section 295- B and is in clear violation of Section 37 of Prevention of Electronic Crime Act (PECA) 2016 and Section 19 of Constitution of Pakistan

 

I found three PDFs from Googling portions of the law I am breaking:

 

 

 

 

Of particular interest to me was from “PAKISTAN Use and abuse of the blasphemy laws,” the penalty for breaking the Blasphemy law under the heading, “2.2 Sections of the PPC amended or added during Zia-ul Haq’s Islamization drive” which is on page 7 of the PDF referencing section 295-B:

 

Several sections were inserted in the PPC in the 1980s. Section 295-B was added in 1982; it made defiling the Koran a criminal offence. It reads: “Whoever willfully [sic] defiles, damages or desecrates a copy of the Holy Koran or of an extract therefrom or uses it in any derogatory manner or for any unlawful purpose shall be punishable with imprisonment for life.” [Bold text by Blog Editor]

 

In 1980, section 298-A was inserted in the PPC, by which the use of derogatory remarks “by words, … or by imputation innuendo or insinuation, directly or indirectly” in respect of persons revered in Islam, was made a criminal offence punishable with up to three years’ imprisonment. In 1986, defiling the name of the Prophet Mohammad was made a criminal offence and the relevant section, 295-C added to the PPC (see below in detail).

 

Most alarming after examining further penalties heaped on is on page 8 of the PDF under the subheading, “2.3. The blasphemy law: Section 295-C PPC”:

 

In 1986 the penal code was amended by Criminal Law Amendment Act, 1986, which added the blasphemy law under section 295-C to the Pakistan Penal Code. It provided the death penalty or life imprisonment for the criminal offence of defiling the name of the Prophet Mohammad. It reads:

 

“295-C: Use of derogatory remarks, etc. in respect of the Holy Prophet: Whoever by words, either spoken or written, or by visible representations, or by any imputation, innuendo, or insinuation, directly or indirectly, defiles the sacred name of the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him), shall be punished with death, or imprisonment for life, and shall also be liable to fine.” [Bold text by the Blog Editor]

The Court directed the government of Pakistan to effect the necessary legal changes and added, “in case this is not done by 30 April 1991 the words ‘or punishment for life’ in section 295-C, PPC, shall cease to have effect on that date”. Decisions by the Federal Shariat Court are binding on the government under Article 203-D(3) of the Constitution. The Government has the possibility to appeal against such decisions to the Shariat Appellate Bench of the Supreme Court before any directive of the Federal Shariat Court takes effect. The government of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif did not file an appeal against the decision making the death penalty the only punishment available for blasphemy. In July 1991, it announced that it had decided to amend section 295-C as directed by the court. A bill to that effect was placed before parliament in 1992. While the Senate, the upper house of parliament, unanimously adopted the bill in July 1992, the lower house of parliament discussed it at length but did not pass it. Opposition parties considered it to be too vague and …

 

Now that’s some Free Speech limitations for essentially speaking the truth and then receiving the death penalty. Pakistan’s law establishing all things Islam as supreme is not surprising since 97% of the population is Islam and of those 97%, a staggering amount are Sunni-Islam Muslims.

 

Considering the huge number of Muslims that undoubtedly accept Islamic principles in Pakistan’s rule of law, laws relating to Blasphemy are unsurprising. Just as Christian principles should be an influence in the rule of law in Western nations.

 

As far as I am concerned, Pakistan’s rule of law is a glaring example of why Islamic principles CANNOT BE ACCEPTED in the West as the rule of law, ESPECIALLY IN AMERICA WHICH HAS A BILL OF RIGHTS AS PART OF THE CONSTITUTION WHICH AFFIRMS CHRISTIAN CONCEPTS OF NATURAL LAW!

 

I responded to the WordPress Support thinking I would get some kind of reply affirming, rejecting or a mixed reaction my Free Speech stand:

 

Pakistan is in a sad state of Sharia censoring the citizens from Free Speech truth. I pray the WordPress powers that be and the blog platform’s legal team are more protective of Free Speech than Pakistan. On the other hand Pakistan is a sovereign nation and I suspect the Pakistan government is protecting its Muslim citizens (as you probably know Pakistan is overwhelmingly a Sunni-Islam majority nation) from getting upset. In Sharia, placing the prophet Muhammad in a bad light – even when factual – is a capital crime. A Pakistani Christian (**Asia Bibi) survived for nearly 9 years on death row accused of insulting Muhammad by implying Jesus was a greater person. After nine years and the failure of evidence from Bibi’s accuser, Bibi was released from prison nearly causing riots by the devout Muslim Pakistanis.

 

It’s sad but I can live with accommodating Pakistan’s request as pertaining to Pakistan. However, outside of Pakistan, I pray you honor Free Speech and not censor posts that are outside of Pakistan’s authority.

 

Thank you for your consideration and your work, [Blog Editor: The links related to Asia Bibi were not in the original email sent to WordPress Support. The double asterisks (“**”) near Asia’s name is to a recent link about Asia stuck in a secretive location in ill health and being refused medical attention. I want to bring attention to the plight of Asia Bibi and thus will posting her still horrendous treatment directly after my thoughts on Free Speech.]

 

No response or further action of notifications so far from WordPress.

 

I can live with my blogs being banned in a 97% Muslim nation. And I believe I will not be visiting Pakistan anytime soon … or ever.

‘Everyone is Worried’: Asia Bibi ‘Very Unwell’ in Pakistani Safe House, Being Denied Medical Care

 

Asia Bibi

 

By Will Maule, Faithwire

03-11-2019

CBN News

 

Asia Bibi, the mother of five who spent almost a decade on death row for a crime she did not commit, is reported to be in dire physical condition as she continues to be held in a safe house in the Pakistani city of Karachi. Bibi, 53, was acquitted of blasphemy last October after the Supreme Court ruled that the accusations had no evidential basis. Since then, Bibi has been granted asylum in Canada, but as yet has not been released from her home country.

 

What Is The Latest?

 

According to a source quoted in The Daily Mail, Bibi is “very unwell” and being denied medical care while holed up in a safe house with “low blood pressure.”

 

“Everyone is very worried,” the source explained. “She won her appeal and was supposed to be out of Pakistan by now.”

 

Despite the fact that Bibi’s children are now safely in Canada, the Pakistani government has wanted to seek assurances from the embattled mother that she will not speak ill of her home country upon leaving. There is still no indication of when exactly Bibi will finally evade the clutches of the country that has caused her so much strife.

 

“Even though the government says she can leave, the army has all the power in this case,” the source added. “They are in control of her. They are fearful about getting a negative press if she speaks out about her experiences – but they will get an even worse press if she dies in protective custody.”

 

British officials recently stated that the Pakistani government has “confirmed that Asia Bibi is free to make her own decisions and to leave Pakistan,” but the realities of this case speak of a very different story indeed.

 

Many are calling on prominent church leaders, such as Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, to do more on Bibi’s behalf.

 

 

For now, Asia and her husband, Ashiq Masih, remain in Pakistan with little idea as to when they will be allowed to leave.

 

What Is The Background?

 

Bibi was initially arrested back in 2009 after supposedly entering into an argument with a group of women about a source of drinking water. The Islamist women accused Bibi of drinking from the same tap as them, to which Bibi allegedly responded, “Jesus Christ died for my sins. What did the prophet Muhammad do for you?” a remark which they believed offended their revered religious figure.

 

However, in the Supreme Court’s final judgment, it declared that the two sisters who accused Bibi “had no regard for the truth,” before adding that “the said semi-literate young sisters had a reason to level allegations against the appellant which could be untrue.”

 

The landmark judgment also noted that the prosecution’s presented evidence in the case “was nothing short of concoction incarnate.”

 

“Her conviction is set aside and she is to be relieved forthwith if not required in other charges,” said Chief Justice Saqib Nisar in the astonishingly bold ruling, as reported by The Guardian.

 

But the court’s statement went even further, implying that Bibi had been subject to clear-cut prejudice in her arrest and trial.

 

“It is ironical that in the Arabic language the appellant’s name Asia means ‘sinful,’” read the judgment written by Justice Asif Khosa, “but in the circumstances of the present case she appears to be a person, in the words of Shakespeare’s King Lear, ‘more sinned against than sinning.’”

 

The radicals, however, have remained bloodthirsty from the very day Bibi was arrested.

 

Prior to her acquittal, in Pakistan’s second-largest city of Lahore, hundreds of protesters gathered together and chanted “Hang infidel Asia.” Sickeningly, the hashtag #HangAsiaDefend295C was trending among the religious extremists on Twitter, with the “295C” referring to section 295-C of Pakistan’s penal code, which makes it a criminal offense to blaspheme against the Prophet Muhammad.

 

What Does The Blasphemy Law Actually Say?

 

According to the Penal Code itself, 295-B refers to the prohibiting of “Defiling, etc., of Holy Qur’an,” and 295-C is in reference to the “use of derogatory remarks, etc., in respect of the Holy Prophet.” Other violations not specific to Islam contained in Pakistan’s criminal laws include “trespassing on burial places” and “disturbing religious assembly.”

 

Those who have chosen to support Bibi’s cause have faced grave consequences. In addition to the threat against Bibi, her family and the justices involved in her acquittal, other prominent politicians have lost their lives in the pursuit of religious freedom.

 

In 2011, shortly after Bibi’s conviction, Punjab Governor Salman Taseer was brutally murdered for speaking out in support of the wrongly convicted Christian woman. Shot dead on the streets of Islamabad, his own bodyguard was found guilty of the heinous crime and, though sentenced to death himself, he has since become a cult hero with a large shrine in his honor erected on the outskirts of the capital city.

 

Just two months later, Christian politician and outspoken critic of the blasphemy laws, Shahbaz Bhatti, was also assassinated — shot dead by the Pakistani Taliban as he traveled to work.

 

Do continue to pray for Asia Bibi as she does everything in her power to flee Pakistan.

Fox Rebukes Pirro – Viewers Should Rebuke Fox


John R. Houk
© March 12, 2019

 

Jeanine Pirro condemned Rep Ilhan Omar’s antisemitism on her Saturday (3/9/19) show on Fox News then stated the obvious:

 

“… She’s not getting this anti-Israel sentiment doctrine from the Democrat Party. So if it’s not rooted in the party, where is she getting it from? Think about it. Omar wears a hijab, which according to the Quran 33:59, tells women to cover so they won’t get molested. Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?” (Bold text this Editor)

 

Pirro’s Fox News employers actually publicly rebuked her as if Pirro said something untrue or provocative. If it’s the truth it can’t be provocative!

 

Fox News is still the most Conservative outlet on television or shows featuring Jeanine Pirro, Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, Laura Ingraham, et al; would not be on TV. Nevertheless, Fox News has openly and disappointingly moved more and more Left-ward.

 

Robert Spencer has written a well deserved rebuke on Fox News in defense of Judge Jeanine. The Gateway Pundit exposes the specific Fox News Producer rebuked Judge Jeanine. Can you guess by the Producer’s name why she heaped grief on Pirro? The name: Hufsa Kamal

Perhaps Fox viewers should send their own mass rebuke to Fox News!?

FOX CONDEMNS PIRRO FOR ASKING IF OMAR IS PRO-SHARIA

The fair and balanced network is now as unfair and unbalanced as the rest of them.

 

Jeanine Pirro — Ilhan Omar

 

By Robert Spencer

March 12, 2019

FrontPageMag

 

Breitbart reported Monday that the Fox News Channel “condemned host Jeanine Pirro’s remarks on Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) use of a hijab and said the issue has been dealt with directly.” Sounds serious. But what Pirro actually said was something Fox should have been applauding, if it hadn’t already become just another establishment network.

 

Pirro said: “Think about this: She’s not getting this anti-Israel sentiment doctrine from the Democrat Party. So if it’s not rooted in the party, where is she getting it from? Think about it. Omar wears a hijab, which according to the Quran 33:59, tells women to cover so they won’t get molested. Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?”

 

Predictably, the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) called on Fox to fire Pirro. Like a shark, CAIR can smell blood in the water: instead of defending Pirro for asking a perfectly legitimate question, Fox immediately reacted as if Pirro had stolen Barack Obama’s parking space, denouncing Pirro’s words with stern self-righteousness: “We strongly condemn Jeanine Pirro’s comments about Rep. Ilhan Omar. They do not reflect those of the network and we have addressed the matter with her directly.”

 

Pirro, issued a clarification, to little effect: “I’ve seen a lot of comments about my opening statement from Saturday night’s show and I did not call Rep. Omar un-American. My intention was to ask a question and start a debate, but of course because one is Muslim does not mean you don’t support the Constitution. I invite Rep. Omar to come on my show any time to discuss all of the important issues facing America today.”

 

Fox is increasingly slipping into the Leftist echo chamber. It is terrified of discussing these issues. A few years ago, Jeanine Pirro contacted me and was going to have me as a featured guest on a special show about Sharia. She was very excited about it, and all the arrangements were made to fly me in and get me set up in the studio. Then at the last minute, everything was canceled — it was clear that Fox executives had told her she was venturing into forbidden territory. They willingly kowtow to the Southern Poverty Law Center’s defamation campaign targeting foes of jihad terror and Sharia oppression of women and others. But last night, Pirro ventured off the reservation again, daring to suggest that Ilhan Omar’s hijab showed her to be Sharia-compliant.

 

There is so much confusion on this issue, even among people who should know better. Media critic John Nolte tweeted: “Does a Jewish man who covers his head put the Torah above the Constitution? Does a Catholic woman who covers head put the Pope above the Constitution? What a stupid thing to say.”

 

No in both cases, because in both cases the headwear in question is not part of a larger system that is incompatible with Constitutional rule. However, the hijab is part of such a system, and that’s all Pirro was saying. Fox should not have rebuked her, but this is the age of pandemic cowardice, so it was likely unrealistic to expect anything else.

 

Ilhan Omar herself, not surprisingly, was happier with Fox News than she has probably ever been, and tweeted: “Thank you, @FoxNews. No one’s commitment to our constitution should be questioned because of their faith or country of birth.”

 

But that wasn’t really what Pirro did. Pirro suggested that Omar’s anti-Semitism came from Sharia. And indeed, Sharia is indeed inveterately anti-Semitic: the Qur’an demonizes the Jews in numerous ways. It depicts the Jews as inveterately evil and bent on destroying the well-being of the Muslims. They are the strongest of all people in enmity toward the Muslims (5:82); they fabricate things and falsely ascribe them to Allah (2:79; 3:75, 3:181); they claim that Allah’s power is limited (5:64); they love to listen to lies (5:41); they disobey Allah and never observe his commands (5:13). They are disputing and quarreling (2:247); hiding the truth and misleading people (3:78); staging rebellion against the prophets and rejecting their guidance (2:55); being hypocritical (2:14, 2:44); giving preference to their own interests over the teachings of Muhammad (2:87); wishing evil for people and trying to mislead them (2:109); feeling pain when others are happy or fortunate (3:120); being arrogant about their being Allah’s beloved people (5:18); devouring people’s wealth by subterfuge (4:161); slandering the true religion and being cursed by Allah (4:46); killing the prophets (2:61); being merciless and heartless (2:74); never keeping their promises or fulfilling their words (2:100); being unrestrained in committing sins (5:79); being cowardly (59:13-14); being miserly (4:53); being transformed into apes and pigs for breaking the Sabbath (2:63-65; 5:59-60; 7:166); and more. They are under Allah’s curse (9:30), and Muslims should wage war against them and subjugate them under Islamic hegemony (9:29).

 

Sharia also mandates that women cover their heads:

 

“And tell the believing women to reduce their vision and guard their private parts and not expose their adornment except that which appears thereof and to wrap their headcovers over their chests and not expose their adornment except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands’ fathers, their sons, their husbands’ sons, their brothers, their brothers’ sons, their sisters’ sons, their women, that which their right hands possess, or those male attendants having no physical desire, or children who are not yet aware of the private aspects of women. And let them not stamp their feet to make known what they conceal of their adornment. And turn to Allah in repentance, all of you, O believers, that you might succeed.” (Qur’an 24:31)

 

“O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.” (Qur’an 33:59)

 

“Narrated `Aisha (the wife of the Prophet): `Umar bin Al-Khattab used to say to Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) “Let your wives be veiled” But he did not do so. The wives of the Prophet (ﷺ) used to go out to answer the call of nature at night only at Al-Manasi.’ Once Sauda, the daughter of Zam`a went out and she was a tall woman. `Umar bin Al-Khattab saw her while he was in a gathering, and said, ‘I have recognized you, O Sauda!’ He (`Umar) said so as he was anxious for some Divine orders regarding the veil (the veiling of women.) So Allah revealed the Verse of veiling. (Al-Hijab; a complete body cover excluding the eyes).” (Bukhari 79.14.6420)

 

Wearing hijab is a sign that one accepts these imperatives. That is not necessarily true, as lots of women of all perspectives wear headscarves, but when a Muslim woman wears hijab, it’s reasonable to surmise that she accepts the Qur’an and Sunnah, the sources of Sharia. Sharia denies the freedom of speech, the freedom of conscience, the equality of rights of women, and the equality of rights of non-Muslims. Wearing hijab is a sign of adherence to Sharia.

 

So what did Judge Jeanine Pirro say that was wrong about Ilhan Omar? She asked questions that need to be asked. Fox should be apologizing to Pirro, not Omar.

On Sunday FOX News “strongly condemned” Judge Jeanine Pirro for asking viewers if Rep. Ilhan Omar’s hijab means she follows Sharia Law.

 

Judge Jeanine attacked anti-Semite Ilhan Omar on Saturday and asked if her hijab means she’s against the Constitution.

 

 

Fox News Channel issued an official statement on Sunday: “We strongly condemn Jeanine Pirro’s comments about Rep. Ilhan Omar. They do not reflect those of the network and we have addressed the matter with her directly.”

FOX News released the statement after FOX producer Hufsa Kamal, a Pakistani-American, tweeted her disgust against Judge Jeanine Pirro on Sunday.

 

Mufsa [sic] Kamal tweeted:

 

@JudgeJeanine can you stop spreading this false narrative that somehow Muslims hate America or women who wear a hijab aren’t American enough? You have Muslims working at the same network you do, including myself. K thx. https://t.co/ZfKhRhlvM3

— Hufsa Kamal (@hufkat) March 10, 2019

 

Mufsa’s [sic] remarks made it into a report on The Hill. Mufsa [sic] inserted herself into the story.

 

Now it appears Hufsa Kamal, who is a producer for Bret Baier on FOX News, has a long history of vicious attacks on conservatives.

Hufsa has attacked Michelle Malkin, Candace Owens, Dan Bongino and Charlie Kirk.

Muslims Rejecting America


Justin Smith righteously writes about a couple of Muslim gals (Muslemas) who incredulously managed to get elected to Congress. Putting it simply, these Muslim gals are a couple of Islamic Supremacist Jew-Haters.

 

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D – MI-13) & Rep. Ilhan Omar (D – MN-5)

Muslims Rejecting America  

A Twisted Reality in the House

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 3/9/2019 7:24 PM

 

Dual loyalty and anti-Semitism against Jews and supporters of Israel came to national attention recently over remarks made by freshman Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, a refugee from Somalia, who suggested that Jews were more loyal to Israel than they are loyal to the United States, and it is enough to make one laugh to keep from crying, if it were not so serious. Not only is Judaism not the problem in America, not the religion of terrorists seeking to destroy America and subjugate Her, but if anyone’s loyalty to America should be questioned, let’s look at these Muslemas, such as Omar, Representative Rashida Tlaib and Islamic supremacist and activist Linda Sarsour, whose own loyalties regularly appear to lie with Somalia, Iran, al Shabaab, Hamas, Hezbollah, Gaza and the mythical country of “Palestine“; and perhaps not so ironically, all Americans will see that Muslims born here and living here a majority of their lives are not assimilating as well as the “experts” would have us believe.

 

The remark by Omar that led to the March 7th House resolution against hate, anti-Semitism, anti-Muslim bigotry and white supremacists went as follows: “I want to talk about the political influence in this country that says it’s OK to push for allegiance to a foreign country.” Even many prominent Democrats, such as Rep. Eliot Engel (NY) thought this echoed charges of “dual loyalty” to Israel that have long been used to intimidate Jews from participating in politics, as he offered that such wordshave no place in our public discourse and indeed can be very dangerous.”

 

Tlaib also charged Jews with harboring dual loyalty in January, when she said political supporters of Israel “forgot what country they represent“.

 

Omar, now 37, has lived in America since age eight, and that makes it all the more interesting that just weeks after her election, on December 20th 2016, Omar was in Mogadishu, Somalia with its president, Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, and she went on to also meet with her husband to be, Ahmed Hirsi, and his friend, former Prime Minister Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed, also called “Farmajo“, who is also a U.S. citizen and now Somalia’s new President.

 

Security Agent Directive 4 in the U.S Code states in part: “Conditions that could easily raise a security concern … include contact, regardless of method, with a foreign family member … professional associate … or a … resident in a citizen of or resident in a foreign country if that contact creates a heightened risk of exploitation, manipulation, pressure, or coercion.”

 

On March 17th, Representative Rashida Tlaib, an American Palestinian-Muslim, who took her Constitutional Oath on the Koran and wrapped herself in a Palestinian flag after her election as she promised to “impeach the mother ****er” (Pres. Trump), is speaking in Livonia, Michigan, alongside Imam Omar Suleiman, who supports executing homosexuals and hijabs for women to avoid incestuous relationships. She also is tied to many other Islamic supremacists, associates of terrorists and terrorist organizations, such as the Muslim American Society and CAIR, front groups for Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, and Jamaat-e-Islami and the Islamic Circle of North America.

 

On March 23rd, Rep. Omar will speak at the Los Angeles CAIR event, the 4th Annual Valley Banquet, where she will meet with Islamist Hassan Shibly (CAIR of Florida), who actively supports Hamas and Hezbollah. She will rub shoulders with the director of CAIR – Los Angeles, Hussam Ayloush, who blamed United States’ policy for the Islamic terror attack on San Bernardino.

 

Like Tlaib, Linda Sarsour is an American Palestinian-Muslim, born in Brooklyn, who is a Jew-hating, Israel-hating apologist for Islamic jihadi terrorists that advocates for the movement to boycott, divest and sanction Israel. She tweeted, in 2012, “Nothing is creepier than Zionism.”

 

On March 6th, speaking in Arabic, Linda Sarsour ordered her Islamic thugs of CAIR to block Asra Nomani, a journalist and leader in the Muslim Reform Movement, from entering Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s office, behind her, Islamist Jinan Shbat and Nihad Awad, executive director of CAIR [Blog Editor: On same day Sarsour posed for photos with CAIR thugs in Rep. Ilhan Omar’s office], as they wished to discuss their anti-Semitic views with Omar in private. So, we now see Islamic thugs controlling the Halls of Congress.

 

Yasmine Mohammed offered the following translation on March 7th, in a tweet: ““Don’t let her be one of the first ones in. Do you all hear me?

Nomani was a friend of Daniel Pearl, Wall Street Journal reporter, who was abducted and murdered in Pakistan. She was in Pakistan at the time and made sure his story was front and center in the news and his memory honored. Pearl’s brutal beheading and his friendship with Nomani meant nothing to these anti-Semitic Sons of Mohammed, who mistreated her.

 

Many Republicans and even a few Democrats stated that Omar should have been named in the resolution. Pelosi asserted, “It’s not about her; it’s about these forms of hatred.” Pelosi simply has chosen to ignore Omar’s long pattern of these sort of anti-Semitic statements.

 

And so, rather than censure Ilhan Omar, a Somalian Muslim, and others in Congress for their anti-Jewish anti-Semitic words and deeds, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic Party had to take an entire week to condemn all hate and also “anti-Muslim discrimination and bigotry against minorities.” Talk about a weak resolution and losing focus.

 

It’s not the Jewish religion and Israel that are engaging in terrorism worldwide and committing one terror act after another in America. It is Islam and Muslims to the largest extent.

 

Neither did the resolution mention Christianity at a time when a rising tide of hatred is witnessed against Bible-believing Christians, and yet, five entire sections focus on anti-Muslim bigotry and “the reality of anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, racism” and the need “to ensure that the United States will live up to the transcendent principles of tolerance, religious freedom, and equal protection as embodied in the Declaration of Independence and … the Constitution“. [Resolution – 030719]

 

How remarkably disingenuous of the Democrats to presume to tell Americans that we must be tolerant of the intolerant Muslims who reject the very principles named in this miserable farce of a resolution.

 

These Muslemas, who so benefited from the system they hate, have absorbed the Islamic propaganda they were spoon-fed from childhood. And now fully indoctrinated, they speak like foreign representatives from Muslim nations, always blaming America, Israel and “the Jews” first, before anything else. They call good “evil” and evil “good”, while hating America and Israel for having the strength of conviction and virtue to stand in the face of the absolutely unequivocally proven evil ideology of Islam.

 

Nothing is made clearer by the examples of Rep. Ilhan Omar, Rep. Rashida Tlaib and activist Linda Sarsour that too many in the Muslim-American community have failed to adopt Western values, while they prove, despite contrary assertions, that it is never a good idea to accept individuals into America whose values and customs are so antithetical to U.S. principles and American culture. And although they would have been better served to have stayed in the Middle East, America still has legislators bound and determined to impose policies of identity politics and multiculturalism, that allow refugee communities to isolate themselves and essentially refuse to assimilate.

 

Americans will not be surprised, once they witness Omar, Tlaib and Sarsour and their associates continue to form tighter bonds with Islamic supremacist connections and utter more anti-Semitic rhetoric. These Muslemas are unassimilated Islamofascists who have rejected the American way of life and our American traditions, culture and heritage, with the blame, in part, lying at the feet of U.S. policies that defer to the customs of the homelands of refugee communities. And if we continue to allow Muslims to immigrate to the U.S. and ignore their anti-American customs, America will surely see many more Omars and Tlaibs join the ranks of Congress, with their hatred for America’s founding principles and America Herself.

Intro to Justin’s Thoughts on ‘No Apologies’


John R. Houk, Blog Editor

© March 9, 2019

On Thursday (3/7/19) the House dominated by Dems passed an anti-Hate-Speech Resolution. A Resolution is not a binding law which is good because I doubt the Resolution would pass First Amendment muster.

 

The story behind the Resolution was the Antisemitism openly displayed by new House members – both Dems – both Muslims – have both been caught openly displaying Jew-hatred speech. It appears Ilhan Omar was the most egregious, but Rashida Tlaib has had her share of Antisemitism as well.

 

When the Dems were called out on their members’ Antisemitism, they ended up protecting Omar and Tlaib by a watered down Resolution – 030719 aimed at labeling criticism of Islam as Hate-Speech. And although I couldn’t find specific mention of labeling criticism of the ungodly LGBTQ lifestyle as hate, I suspect some Humanist/Multiculturalist would such criticism the Resolution’s use of the word “bigotry”.

 

Condemning anti-Semitism as hateful expressions of intolerance that are contradictory to the values and aspirations that define the people of the United States and condemning anti-Muslim discrimination and bigotry against minorities as hateful expressions of intolerance that are contrary to the values and aspirations of the United States. (Resolution – 030719. With elaboration of what constitutes Hate-Speech.)

 

I found a Justin Smith post on his Facebook page that illustrates the same ire I felt in realizing where this Hate-Speech Resolution could lead. Now I don’t know if Justin’s passion for Free Speech has something to with Resolution – 030719 or some other situation, but in my opinion it applies.

No Apologies for Free-Speech Truth

 

By Justin Smith

March 8, 2019 7:07 PM

 

No apologies should ever be made for hating something, because certain people, activities and ideologies have full well earned any hatred directed towards them. The term “hate-speech” is the Progressive Democrats’/Communists’ catch-phrase assault on the Truth, when the Truth exposes one of their nefarious agendas or allies. And I hate with a passion, and I love with a passion, as is my God-given right to think as I believe and feel about issues as I choose. It is a part of all human psyche to hate and to love, as well as to experience anger and joy. No thought police will ever keep me from speaking my mind through their own hypocrisy in the use of the term “hate-speech”!

 

This definition is from ‘Webster’s New Collegiate Dictionary’ (1977):

 

hate 1a: intense hostility and aversion usually from fear, anger or a sense of injury

 

2a: extreme dislike or antipathy. I fear very little, so my hatred stems from anger, a sense of injury and an extreme dislike. The poet Maya Angelou shouts: “Be angry. It is right to be angry. It is healthy.”

 

Do I hate?…Damn straight I hate!

 

Psalms 97:10: You who love the Lord hate evil!

 

I hate the small-minded miniature Joe Stalins of the Democratic Party and their Muslim allies within their party, such as Representative Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, who in turn have shared their own hatred of this America I love so well.

 

I loathe those Muslims and Muslim sympathizers who advocate the spread of Sharia Law across the entire U.S., such as Dalia Mogahed (Advisor to Pres. Obama) and Harold Koh (Head of Obama’s Legal Counsel-U.S. State Dept.). Sharia Law is evil; Islam is not a religion, because it has little to do with God and primarily promotes Mohammed’s doctrines and policies.

 

Psalms 119:104: I gain understanding from Your precepts; therefore I hate every false way.

 

Islam and its Sharia Law doctrines represent an ideology diametrically opposed to the U.S. Constitution and are the enemy to America and freedom. And yet, Muslims live in the heart of America, for the most part and until just the past few years, without having their differences questioned, without checking their bad intentions, and without being penalized for their sullen fanaticism.

 

The Progressives, Muslims and Communists of the world can mock Christianity, the Virgin Mary or Jesus and nobody touches their right of thought or expression, but if myself or Pete Doughtie or anyone else simply states facts concerning Islam. the Koran and the Prophet Mohammed, we are called bigots, xenophobes and racists. Progressive Democrats/Communists and Code Pink can yell anti-American slogans, call our soldiers “murderers” and “baby-killers”, fly the Mexican or any other nationality flag over the U.S. flag or even burn our beloved American flag and nothing happens; but if anyone does the identical thing against Islam, all Hell breaks loose! This conflict is ideological and has no racial quality whatsoever.

 

If we can condone Islamofascism and Sharia Law within the U.S. in the name of broadmindedness, understanding and pluralism, why did we fight Hitler, Mussolini and Stalin? Why did we organize the Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba? Why did we go to Korea and Vietnam? Why does the U.S. send soldiers, such as Seal Team Six, to kill and die in wars declared against the enemies of freedom, of democracy and of civilization? Are these principles valid in certain cases only, with certain nations only? Aren’t Islamic tyrannies as unacceptable as the communist and fascist ones? I’ve had enough of this Leftist duplicity, ambiguity and hypocrisy! I am a free spirit, a free individual, and I refuse any form of tyranny such as Islamic Sharia; I refuse to listen to the clamor for the Theocratic State.

 

The Leftists and the Muslim sympathizers would exterminate the right of dissent within our representative democratic Republic. They would see us punished and our admonishments against Islam made criminal, just as the case in Europe, where we witnessed numerous notable people, such as Brigitte Bardot and Geert Wilders, prosecuted for “hate-speech” against Muslims. They would silence America’s children, hand them to the enemy and abandon them to a minority that swaggers and blackmails as it re-establishes heresy and burns the free minds on the stake. They would build a non-democracy…a deceit…a lie!

 

Upon their death, I full well suspect that all Progressive Democrat/Communists will plunge headlong into Hell and down Lucifer’s throat due to multiple un-repented sins, but especially their intellectual terrorism. They presume and assume to hold the Truth in a dogmatic manner; if you do not think as they do, you are an idiot and an outcast. And now, Hollywood, public education, university professors and pseudo-intellectuals have poisoned the minds of two generations, as they work on the third. Let’s state facts. The mendacious pacifists who disseminate the most obtuse illiberalism and the most bullying fascism were spawned by the Left; anti-Americanism originated with the Democratic Party, and now they are engaging in an even more despicable sin, as they foster Islamism and Sharia Law in America!

 

What kind of freedom would allow us to be invaded or muzzled or prevented from thinking, speaking or rebelling? What kind of freedom would allow Americans to live in fear of being prosecuted and convicted as criminals for the fiction of “hate-speech”? What kind of freedom seeks to censor my thoughts and feelings, to decide whom I must love and whom I must hate, so that if I hate my country and my fellow Americans I go to Heaven and if I hate Muslims I go to Hell? A non-freedom, I say…a mockery…a farce!

 

Like love, hate belongs to human nature…to Life…and cannot be forbidden by some article of some penal code. It can be judged, adversed or condemned, but only on a moral basis. I have the right to love whom I want, and I also have the right to hate whom I want. Let’s start with those who hate me. Yes, I hate the Bin Ladens, the Zawahiris and the kamikazes and suicide bombers who blow our people up; I do hate the bastards who smear the facades of churches and urinate on them. I do hate the Michael Moores, the Ward Churchills, the Noam Chomskys, the George Soroses, Cloward and Pivens, the Barack Obamas, their accomplices and the domestic traitors who sell us to the enemy. I do hate them as much as I hate the Ayatollah Khomeini, Putin, Ahmadinejad, Hu and Chavez. I hate them as I always hated any murder of Freedom. It is my sacrosanct right…my sacrosanct duty.

 

John 8:32: You will know the Truth, and the Truth will set you free.

 

Millions of American patriots, such as myself, Pete Doughtie, Kevin Fisher, Lou Ann Zelenik, Rebecca Bynum, Pam King, Sam Solomon, Bill Warner, Jerry Gordon, Frank Gaffney and Bill Ketron, have led the battle against the introduction of Sharia Law and Islamofascism within the U.S. through the use of honest facts. All of us are fulfilling a very difficult, a very grievous duty…the duty of speaking the Truth. And in speaking the Truth, giving voice to the voiceless!

35 Key People Involved In The Russia Hoax Who Need To Be Investigated


The House Dem majority are ramping up investigations against Trump to perpetuate their highly unsubstantiated witch hunt. As Willis L. Krumholz of The Federalist points out, there should be further investigations about conspiracy in the 2016 election. Yet the people that should be investigated are the Obama and Crooked Hillary connections.

35 Key People Involved In The Russia Hoax Who Need To Be Investigated

As their desperate search for collusion continues, Democrats want to interview 81 people. Try this list instead.

 

By Willis L. Krumholz

MARCH 8, 2019

The Federalists

 

Funny how things change. The Washington Post couldn’t say a nice thing about congressional Republican efforts to investigate the Obama administration and FBI shenanigans that occurred before and after the 2016 election. That’s if they even covered these efforts at all.

 

But with Democrats controlling the House, and that legislative body’s subpoena power, the establishment media’s line has changed. Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee have just sent letters to 81 people, all associated with President Trump or the Russia probe, demanding answers on Russian election interference.

 

This is part of Democrats’ effort to continue their hunt for proof of Russia collusion—although they are already sure that Trump is guilty—as Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation appears to be winding down. To cover these events, the Post’s Philip Bump wrote an article titled: “The 81 people and organizations just looped into the Trump probe—and why they were included.” Of course, the article is totally unquestioning of the House Democrats’ desired narrative and motivations.

 

Investigated, But Not for the Reasons Dems Give

 

It isn’t worth it to go through Bump’s whole article, but even the commentary about the first name on the list—Rinat Akhmetshin—omits glaring and important facts. Bump says Akhmetshin “joined his colleague Natalia Veselnitskaya, a lawyer linked to the Kremlin, at the June 9, 2016, meeting in Trump Tower predicated on providing information that would undermine Hillary Clinton’s campaign.” But, Bump says, “the focus of the meeting instead reportedly focused on the Magnitsky Act—a law that resulted in sanctions on numerous prominent Russians.”

 

Bump somehow forgets to tell us that Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm hired by Hillary Clinton to create nefarious ties between Trump and Russia, was working with Akhmetshin and Veselnitskaya to lobby for the Russian government. Fusion GPS even provided the documents that were handed out at that Trump Tower meeting. Fusion GPS head Glenn Simpson also met with the Russians both before and after that Trump Tower meeting. Yet Simpson isn’t on the Democrats’ list.

 

So there’s a few people on the Democrats’ list who should be investigated, but not for the reasons Democrats say. Some should also be charged with crimes.

 

The following all played a part in the stunning and successful effort by Hillary Clinton’s campaign to infect the executive branch of the federal government with Trump-Russia conspiracy theories. Various writings—either authored by a Brit with ties to the Kremlin who was indirectly paid by Clinton’s campaign, or directly written by Hillary Clinton cronies—were funneled into the federal government through multiple avenues.

 

Partisan Democrats in the Obama administration were all too willing to believe the allegations, and use them as an excuse for bad behavior whether they believed them or not.

 

The documents have been called “dossiers,” but that really just attaches a fancy term to a Word document full of unverified mumbo jumbo that alleged Trump-Russia collusion. Those Word documents were then used to spy on the opposing political party’s presidential campaign, and to plant stories in the media right before the election insinuating that Trump had nefarious ties with Russia.

 

Here are 36 people who should be interviewed under oath, if they have not been interviewed already, some of whom should be subjected to criminal prosecution.

 

Obama and Comey’s FBI People

 

Gregory Brower was Jim Comey’s FBI congressional liaison, and left the agency in 2018. Brower was in Comey’s inner circle, and like many in Comey’s inner circle, Brower played the game of claiming things were classified when they were not, in order to label Republican investigators as leakers and hide how the FBI used the “dossiers.” Brower was called out by Sens. Chuck Grassley and Lindsey Graham for that.

 

Kevin Clinesmith, a former FBI lawyer, wrote anti-Trump texts with former top FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. According to the Washington Times, Clinesmith “worked on the 2016 probe into Hillary Clinton’s email use [known as Mid-Year-Exam], then worked on the FBI’s original investigation into the Trump campaign [known as Crossfire Hurricane] and, eventually, with the special counsel’s investigation into Mr. Trump’s presidential campaign.”

 

But Clinesmith, like Strzok, was let go from Mueller’s investigative team once his anti-Trump texts were uncovered by the FBI inspector general (IG), who is tasked with uncovering wrongdoing at the FBI. “Viva le resistance,” Clinesmith said in one text.

 

Joseph Pientka, an FBI official, was the go-between for Fusion GPS and the FBI. Pientka interviewed Department of Justice official Bruce Ohr on at least 12 occasions, who passed on the information Ohr’s wife Nellie (who worked for Fusion GPS) was receiving from Christopher Steele (who also worked for Fusion GPS), and who was using Edward Baumgartner, a British national with ties to Moscow, to compile the dossier for the Clinton campaign.

 

Steele was originally the direct FBI source, despite his ties to the Clinton campaign through Fusion GPS, but when Steele was caught leaking to the media to paint Trump as a Russian stooge just before the election, official FBI rules said that Steele’s use as an FBI source had to be discontinued. The FBI top brass worked around these rules, which are in place to prevent this very kind of abuse, by using Pientka to interview Ohr, who was getting his information from Steele.

 

Pientka also played a role in the interview of former Trump national security advisor Mike Flynn, where Pientka and Strzok interviewed Flynn, and Department of Justice (DOJ) and FBI officials (including former deputy attorney general Sally Yates) used that interview to entrap Flynn for a completely non-nefarious conversation with the Russian ambassador. The pretext for the interview was the Logan Act, a 200-year old law that has never led to a conviction and is probably unconstitutional. Plus, it is violated by every incoming administration, as they seek to begin conducting foreign policy during the transition period.

 

All Flynn did was talk to the Russian ambassador and try to get Russia to not retaliate against sanctions Obama placed on Russia right before leaving the White House, and to not allow an anti-Israel vote at the United Nations. The Obama administration was going to allow this vote in the final days of Obama’s presidency, an unprecedented move.

 

Although Flynn was never charged with violating the Logan Act, he was later charged with lying to the FBI investors sent to interview him, under the pretext of a possible Logan Act violation—even though the agents didn’t think he was lying at the time, and even though the FBI had wiretapped access to the record of Flynn’s conversation with the Russian ambassador.

 

What happened to Flynn is a disgrace, and a total perversion of our justice system. And it is just one example in the dangerous trend of the left using our justice system to take out political opponents, where Democrat politicians point out a target or a supposed crime, and the federal bureaucracy dutifully moves into action.

 

Obama’s DOJ People

 

Tashina Gauhar is a Department of Justice attorney who was deeply involved in applications to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance (FISA) Court, which were used to spy on the Trump campaign using the dossiers. Gauhar was also one of the few people to see or be notified of the existence of missing Hillary Clinton emails found on Anthony Weiner’s computer. Weiner was being investigated for pedophilia and was married to top Clinton aide Huma Abedin.

 

Gauhar and Andrew McCabe sat on those emails, and a cursory investigation—led by anti-Trump FBI agent Strzok—was only conducted when FBI field agents in New York threatened to go public. Gauhar later played a role in recommending former attorney general Jeff Sessions’ recusal from overseeing Mueller’s probe.

 

John Carlin is the head of the Justice Department’s National Security Division, and got out of the DOJ in late 2016. He was the former chief of staff to Mueller, when Mueller led the FBI in the 2000s. Carlin was involved in the FBI’s systemic abuse of the FISA surveillance laws, which included spying on the Trump campaign.

 

This included omitting information on FBI wiretap abuse to the FISA court, and omitting information when applying to spy on Trump campaign official Carter Page to the FISA court. Carlin was also regularly briefed on and involved with the FBI’s overall investigation into the Trump campaign, called Crossfire Hurricane.

 

David Laufman is a high-level DOJ official in the national security division. Laufman worked with FBI counterintelligence guy Strzok on both the Clinton email investigation and the investigation into the Trump campaign based on the still-unproven, Clinton-paid, and Russian-sourced “dossier.”

 

Mary McCord was the acting assistant attorney general for a time, replacing Carlin as the head of the DOJ’s national security division. She left the DOJ in 2017. McCord played a role in Yates’s plan to spy on Flynn and entrap him with the Logan Act.

 

George Toscas, a senior official in the Justice Department, was in charge of the “Mid-Year-Exam” investigation into Clinton’s email abuses. Toscas had a front seat to both McCabe and Comey’s efforts to hide the fact that Clinton’s emails were found on Weiner’s computer, and former Obama attorney general Loretta Lynch’s efforts to stymie the Clinton email investigation.

 

The importance of Hillary’s emails wasn’t just her flouting security rules. Many have speculated that Hillary’s 30,000 missing emails, which were stored on her home-brew server, would have shown pay-to-play activities Clinton conducted while Obama’s secretary of state.

 

Obama’s State Department People

 

Victoria Nuland was a top Obama State Department official, and potentially Clinton’s secretary of state. Nuland had a role in pushing Fusion GPS conspiracy theories in the State Department, and in the broader Obama administration.

 

She received the Steele dossier just after it was created, via Jonathan Winer, in July 2016. That was possibly two months before the document was in the hands of the FBI, unless the FBI had it sooner than we currently know. She then ultimately gave permission for the FBI to make the contact with Steele, which was initiated by Michael J. Gaeta, an FBI agent based in Rome who became Steele’s handler.

 

Steele even came to the State Department to directly brief officials on his work, paid for by the Clinton campaign. Nuland had an awkward exchange with Sen. Richard Burr, where she claimed she “actively” avoided this Steele briefing, but also said she didn’t hear about the briefing until after it occurred.

 

Safe to say that if Nuland was tied to the Trump campaign, she would already be indicted for perjury by Mueller’s team of angry Democrats.

 

Jonathan Winer was a top Obama State Department official. Winer received documents alleging Trump-Russia collusion from notorious Clinton guy Cody Shearer, through another even more notorious Clinton guy named Sidney Blumenthal, and received the Steele dossier from Steele in summer 2016.

 

Winer shared the contents of these documents with his boss, Nuland, and prepped a summary of these docs for the State Department. He also gave the Shearer document to Steele, who then gave it to the FBI. That both Shearer and Blumenthal are known Clinton cronies and hatchet-men never seemed to be important to Winer. Winer was also a source for at least two journalists who wrote articles prior to the election based on the Steele dossier.

 

Jonathan Finer was another Obama State Department official, and the chief of staff to former secretary of state John Kerry. Finer got the so-called dossier from Winer, and gave it to John Kerry. This of course, among several other pieces of information, raises questions as to whether President Obama saw the dossiers and knew about what was being done to the Trump campaign.

 

Elizabeth Dibble was the deputy chief of mission at the U.S. embassy in London. She was reported to be one of the State Department officials who received information from Australian ambassador to the U.K. Alexander Downer, who has ties to the Clinton Foundation, about George Papadopoulos saying to Downer that Joseph Misfud—a European professor with potential ties to western intelligence agencies—told Papadopoulos that Russia had dirt on Hillary Clinton.

 

Misfud allegedly told Papadopoulos this in April 2016, and Papadopoulos allegedly told Downer what Misfud had said in early May. It is entirely possible that Papadopoulos was set up by Misfud, who has now disappeared and is hopefully just in hiding and not at the bottom of some body of water.

 

This chain of events became important when the FBI began using the Papadopoulos tip as an excuse for its “Crossfire Hurricane” investigation into the Trump campaign, in order to say why they didn’t rely on the Clinton-funded dossier.

 

But the FBI didn’t open Crossfire Hurricane until several months after the Dibble-Downer tip was received, and that tip, if it ever even occurred, didn’t go through the normal and proper chain of intelligence (others have claimed that the tip wasn’t taken seriously until the Democratic National Committee hack was made public).

 

More damning for the FBI’s Papadopoulos excuse was that they didn’t interview Papadopolous until after the 2016 election, and went after Carter Page for FISA surveillance instead. This was no damning piece of firsthand information, or emergency. It was hearsay, and what Papadopoulos said to Downer, and what Misfud said to Papadopoulos, is still disputed.

 

The reality is that the Clinton-funded dossier started the FBI’s investigation into Trump, at least the official Crossfire Hurricane investigation.

 

Finally, Thomas Williams is another State Department guy in the London embassy. Colin KahlKathleen Kavalec, and Lewis Lukens were all State Department officials who had some sort of interaction with the dossier, or Fusion GPS people.

 

People Tied to the DNC or Clinton Campaign

 

Perkins Coie, a law firm, was paid by the Clinton campaign to serve as a go-between to hide the fact that Hillary’s campaign was paying Fusion GPS to push the Trump-Russia smear.

 

Marc Elias is a lawyer at Perkins Coie, who hired Fusion GPS for the Clinton campaign.

 

Michael Sussmann is another lawyer at Perkins Coie, who received a story about a Russian bank, Alphabank, communicating with a server in Trump Tower from Fusion GPS. Sussmann went directly to the FBI with that story—to James Baker, who was general counsel of the FBI under Comey—prompting reports midway through the 2016 campaign that hinted Trump had nefarious ties with Russia.

 

Although it was widely debunked, the server angle again showed up in media stories, including in New York Times and Slate articles, right before the election in September of 2016. Hillary Clinton even tweeted that Slate article when it posted.

 

Robbie Mook was a top Hillary Clinton campaign official. As Fusion GPS was working on the dossier, Perkins Coie was getting the information from Steele and briefing Mook. It is important to note that Mook was the first Hillary official to publicly say that Russia wanted to help Trump win. Mook said this right before the Democratic National Convention.

 

This is more evidence that Clinton’s campaign is the entity that started the Russia investigation, by alleging that Trump had nefarious ties with Russia to distract from the DNC and Clinton campaign’s mistreatment of Bernie Sanders, as was revealed by the DNC email theft that was leaked by WikiLeaks right before the Democrats’ 2016 national convention.

 

Jake Sullivan is another top advisor in Clinton’s campaign, who played a role in forming the Trump-Russia collusion narrative.

 

Cody Shearer is a longtime Clinton dirty tricks guy, with a record of smearing the Clintons’ political opponents. He authored a “dossier,” largely based on Steele’s work, that was picked up by Winer at Obama’s State Department.

 

Sidney Blumenthal is an even more infamous Clinton stooge. “Sid” is so infamous that Obama told Hillary that he didn’t want Blumenthal associated with the Obama administration. Blumenthal got the Trump-Russia conspiracies written by Shearer into the Obama State Department, when only the Clinton campaign was talking about Trump-Russia collusion.

 

Fusion GPS People

 

Fusion GPS is a D.C. based opposition research and public relations firm with a history of representing less-than-savory actors, including Planned Parenthood, the Venezuelan dictatorship of Nicolas Maduro, and Vladimir Putin’s Russia. Fusion has been shown in court documents to have paid still-unknown journalists, likely for the placement of stories or to push a certain narrative.

 

Rinat Akhmetshin is the aforementioned Russian spy guy who was working with Fusion GPS when he showed up in Trump Tower. Get him under oath and ask him how much he knew about Fusion’s work for the Clinton campaign.

 

Edward Baumgartner is the British national, fluent in Russian and with ties to the Kremlin, who actually worked on most of Steele’s dossier. To compile the dossier, Baumgartner used unknown Russian sources that were paid and totally unverified, possibly tied to the Kremlin.

 

Peter Fritsch is a partner at Fusion GPS.

 

Mary Jacoby is the wife of Fusion GPS head Simpson, and has bragged publicly that her husband started the Russia investigation.

 

Shailagh Murray was a senior advisor to the Obama administration. Her husband is Neil King Jr., who works at Fusion GPS.

 

Neil King Jr., a Fusion GPS guy married to Murray, was also Obama’s top communications advisor. On a related story, Politico quoted King without mentioning he worked for Fusion GPS. This is just one of many examples of the endless ties between reporters and Fusion GPS, and between so-called journalists and prominent Democrats.

 

Thomas Catan is a Fusion GPS executive. He pled the Fifth in front of Congress when asked questions about the role of the dossier for the Hillary campaign.

 

Daniel Jones, a former staffer to Sen. Dianne Feinstein, heads the Penn Quarter Group, a D.C. “consulting firm.” He also heads a “nonprofit” called the “Democracy Integrity Project.” Jones’ groups have received millions from the likes of George Soros and Tom Steyer, two leftwing billionaires, to continue investigations into Trump via Fusion GPS. It appears as if Jones began picking up the tab for Fusion to continue its work as soon as the Clinton campaign and the DNC stopped paying Fusion after the election.

 

Glenn Simpson is the head of Fusion GPS. There are lots of indications that he lied to Congress during his testimony about Nellie Ohr, the wife of DOJ official Bruce Ohr, before it was publicly known that Nellie worked for Fusion GPS. Specifically, Simpson told Congress that only Baumgartner spoke Russian at Fusion. But Nellie spoke Russian, and she was largely hired because she was a Russia expert (and because her husband worked at DOJ).

 

Simpson also lied about the timing of his contacts with Bruce Ohr. Again, if he were associated with Trump, he would have been indicted by Mueller already.

 

The Big Fish

 

Of course, there’s also former director of national intelligence Jim ClapperComey and Andrew McCabe at FBI, and former CIA director John Brennan.

 

Comey and McCabe are leakers, and should be prosecuted as such. Brennan is a particular bad actor, and did much to spread the dossiers around the federal government and our intelligence community. It is also thought that Brennan pushed the FBI to investigate Trump, or at least increase the intensity of its spying on Trump’s campaign.

 

Will any of these guys ever be prosecuted? Better said, does new Attorney General Bill Barr care about the rule of law or not?

 

So Many Questions Yet to Be Answered

 

Was the Kremlin behind this whole thing, in order to sow distrust in the American political process? If so, that would make far too many Democrats their “useful idiots.” Why isn’t there more uproar about the fact that Fusion GPS was working for Russia while it was working for the Clinton campaign?

 

The other gnawing problem is the timeline to all of this. In early June 2016, the DNC publicly said that it had been hacked, two days after WikiLeaks announced that it had information that showed Clinton and the DNC were mistreating Sanders. Right away, Steele began his work for Fusion GPS in June.

 

The DNC says it first noticed that it was hacked on April 28, 2016. But DNC staffers weren’t forced to turn over their presumably infected equipment until June 10, 2016. And numerous set-up attempts of Trump campaign people occurred during 2016, possibly as early as April 2016.

 

You don’t have to think that the Clintons killed Seth Rich to think something stinks to high heaven here. Justice has been grossly miscarried, on a high and far-reaching level. If this is what America is to be like going forward, it will be only a shell of what it once was in the past. The only hope is for Barr’s DOJ to swing into action.
