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

Intro by John R. Houk, Blog Editor

February 20, 2017

 

Paul Sutliff may have uncovered yet another Obama Administration scandal involving radical Islamic elements within the U.S. borders. The scandalous Obama behavior is not surprising. And yet you have to know that the Mainstream Media which is so intent to bring down President Trump will not report on another Obama scandal, right?

 

This is what Paul is looking into: He believes that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is granting Federal funding to American Muslim organizations that either linked to radical Islam or tied to Islamic terrorism. Here is a soundbite from a 2015 article on the subject from Paul Sutliff:

 

FEMA created the Non-Profit Security Program (NSGP) to provide assistance to non-profits targeted and/or threatened by terrorist organizations. The intent was to help targeted organizations in high threat areas of the country, it was not to provide funds for people who defend terrorists. (FEMA is Funding Muslims in America Who Support Terrorism; Paul Sutliff on Civilization Jihad; 9/14/15)

 

You’ll read below that Paul is still looking at FEMA and Islamic terrorist funding connections AND that FEMA is not cooperating with his FOIA requests which points to the potential Obama scandal.

 

The grant money comes under the aegis of NSGP. Here is a paragraph description of the FEMA program:

 

The Nonprofit Security Grant Program plays an important role in the implementation of the National Preparedness System by supporting the development and sustainment of core capabilities. Core capabilities are essential for the execution of each of the five mission areas outlined in the National Preparedness Goal (the Goal). (Nonprofit Security Grant Program)

 

I’ve got to ask: What the heck does a National Preparedness Goal have to do with Islamic-American organizations with ties to foreign Islamic organizations that favor the institution of a global Caliphate?

 

Here is the FEMA National Prepared Goals under the introduction section says:

 

The National Preparedness Goal defines what it means for the whole community to be prepared for all types of disasters and emergencies. The goal itself is succinct:

 

“A secure and resilient nation with the capabilities required across the whole community to prevent, protect against, mitigate, respond to, and recover from the threats and hazards that pose the greatest risk.”

 

These risks include events such as natural disasters, disease pandemics, chemical spills and other manmade hazards, terrorist attacks and cyber attacks.

 

To learn more about the commitment to whole community involvement, visit the whole community page on this site.

 

Hmm … FEMA is giving money to Muslim American organizations that support a Jihad Caliphate agenda quite contrary to the U.S. Constitution?

 

Now for the Paul Sutliff thoughts on FEMA.

FOIA Reveals Shredding in FEMA or Worse!

FOIA Battle Royale

 

“These are not the droids your looking for.”

 

“There is not the information your looking for.”

 

When Obi-won Kenobi of Star Wars comes to mind when you are trying to get information from the federal government something is wrong! I wrote a Freedom of Information Act request to FEMA on August 31, 2015 regarding the awarding of grants to these three entities under the Nonprofit Security Grant Program.

 

 

# Name and Info Amount
1 ISLAMIC SOCIETY OF BALTIMORE MD INC. $74,675
2. ISLAMIC CENTER OF SAN DIEGO, INCORPORATED $71,250
3. CAIR $70,324
TOTAL: $216,249

 

It took them over a year to fill my request. However, in saying they did fulfill the request they also denied my request. They simply sent me a print out from USA Spending.gov. Something you or I can access at home on the Internet. I reached out to the people in the FOIA office for FEMA explaining that I had received copies of applications before and that I had previously been sent a copy of the required confirmation of the claims. Which in the one case I received, was a police letter. This became an article on awarding a grant to those who support terrorism and an example of awarding a grant with confirmation of a threat.

 

So imagine my surprise when I received the following statement from the FOIA person working at FEMA on February 15, 2017:

 

After our discussion on the phone last week, as promised I did reach back out to the component within FEMA to double check that there was no additional information that was missing from your FOIA request. There was no applications found and so it cannot be provided to you. The program office is aware of the FOIA process and conducted multiple searches and no records were located regarding the applications.

To our knowledge on this Grant Program, FEMA would only consider the Grant applications (E.G. the four corners of the documents) and not any additional threat assessments or documents that may be provided by the non-profits. 

 

After receiving this I called the FOIA Officer and informed her I was filing a complaint with the Inspector General. Which I did that day! To say that an organization that approves grants did not keep a copy of the application or the supporting material is either a lie or evidence of shredding federal documents!

 

Maybe I should apply for the $20,000 award for evidence of the Obama administration shredding offered by Wiki Leaks? While the cash is a great motivator I would rather have the Trump Administration do some heavy stomping in FEMA and shake the tree that is hiding this information!

 

One other possibility exists regarding this “missing information.” It is that FEMA under the Obama Administration was awarding NPSG funding to Islamic organizations without even receiving a grant. This is “misappropriation of funds.” How can I make such damning accusations that FEMA has to have this documentation? The answer is simple.

 

The FEMA site claims that groups filed out applications. I have received evidence of this also through past FOIA requests.

 

fiscal-yr-2015-nonprofit-grant-program

Fiscal Year 2015 Nonprofit Security Grant

 

I even checked to see if there was a different way to file a FOIA for this information if the state FEMA awarded the funding. But as you can see below the state FEMA sites are federal sites and the FOIA requests go through DHS and more specifically FEMA.

 

fema-california

FEMA California

 

fema-maryland

FEMA Maryland

 

Since 2013 this FEMA program has award $56,000,000 to nonprofits claiming to be under a terrorist threat. I have only scratched the surface here. What if the majority of the organizations awarded never had confirmation of a threat? This too is misappropriation of funds!

 

I do not know about you, but I for one am very concerned that organizations such as CAIR that have been directly linked to Hamas in federal courts would receive any federal funding. It gets worse when you consider some of our allies have placed CAIR on a terrorist list. Did we fund the enemy of our allies? Sadly the answer is yes.

 

What can we do as American citizens to stop this? My only suggestion is to email or call the White House and voice your concerns.

The Underground Against Trump Has Now Fully Surfaced

underground-secrets Sedition: incitement of resistance to or insurrection against lawful authority

 

There is much work to do for this new administration.   Everyone expected that snowflakes and cupcakes would emerge to protest and grieve over Hillary’s loss.  They did and gloriously so to the point of drawing ridicule rather than sympathy.

Then, of course we had the usual Soros funded useful idiots blocking traffic, breaking windows, assaulting trump supporters, etc. All attention was being focused on them, perhaps by design so as to deflect from Obama’s underground, underhanded activities.  He was creating a more sinister operation—that of a shadow government meant solely to discredit and remove Trump. A few had sounded the clarion of such seditious activity in the making, but it had not become so blatantly obvious until recently.

The usual leftist arrogance did not take into account that the entire American public was not as stupid as had been portrayed. The clear mined citizenry, who dwell in reality land, can see through the curtain of lies by the politicians, leftist talking heads, and the MSM.  They continue to support Trump’s agenda, which is their own. They want America back. Those who want America to return to the Constitution and cherish The Bill of Rights are coming into action by organizing several pro Trump demonstrations in March.

That is a start, but unfortunately, it will probably take much more. The left is relentless and dangerous, and as Trump stated on the campaign trail, will stop at nothing to achieve their goal.

Those who are funding and driving this obviously seditious movement must be arrested, tried and given the proper penalty. Once the head of the snake is cut off it will eventually die. However, its directionless body will continue to thrash until its final death.  Rest assured the dead snake’s spawn will lay low and arise when the opportunity presents itself.

Obama’s hatred of America is most obvious to many. Unfortunately, many useful idiots are all too willing to crown him the Messiah. Those of us who see through him just want to crown him. His connections are many and for an excellent insight and background on this man, go here.

Excerpts from the articles below address the issues raised above.

Let’s take a look at some of his present activities:


On January 7, 2017, Daniel Greenfield published the article Obama Quietly Hiring New OFA Staff to Fight Trump.  in which he also referenced that back in November he had written Obama was plotting to use OFA to set the agenda. and that that he just might get away with it. Greenfield’s articles were most prescient and affirmed what many believed–Obama had no intention of going into the night quietly. more

Here are a few links specifying what OFA means to recruits:

Get Updates on OFA Training Programs

 

“Organizing for Action is training the next generation of progressive organizers as they work on important issues across the country. OFA’s hands-on fellowship and training programs provide the skills and tools necessary to empower grassroots organizers to make a difference in their communities.” more



Your voice can change a room. 

OFA is committed to mobilizing and training the next generation of progressive organizers and leaders, because real, lasting change doesn’t just happen on its own—it requires a program, it requires organizing, and it requires people like you.


With grassroots chapters in neighborhoods across the country, OFA volunteers are building this movement from the ground up, person to person, community by community—because democracy isn’t a spectator sport. more



Take a deep breath. Then take action.

 

It’s troubling to see years of progress and hard work on the line, but here’s how community organizers get through it: We take action.


Keep in mind that progress never comes served on a silver platter; we’ve always had to work for it. From marriage equality to climate change to health care reform, it’s taken years—sometimes decades—of sustained effort from a broad base of citizens to bring these issues to the forefront and persuade decision-makers to move us forward. So in that sense, this new political climate is no different. We’ve been here before. more

All of the above sounds innocuous, but make no mistake these are training camps for upending the American way–either by persuasion or by insurrection.

A financial coup for OFA:


Obama RELAUNCHES Efforts to “Fundamentally Change America”! by Hardworking1

 
While researching and writing my article last week about organizations like Black Lives Matter (BLM) getting a tax exempt IRS 501(c)3 designation I discovered that the Obama Administration went even farther than that with some liberal/progressive organization’s tax exempt designations!  Obama’s “Organizing for Action” (OFA) got a 501(c)4 designation, This is even more “troubling” than BLM getting the tax exempt designation, 501(c)3, because the OFA tax exempt designation 501(c)4 allows organizations to “engage in substantial lobbying activities”!  …

Why did I say that OFA having this tax exempt designation is “troubling”?  All you have to do is look at OFA’s history to answer that question. OFA is an organization that evolved out of Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign, which evolved out of “Organizing for America”, which was part of Obama’s 2008 election campaign. OFA was formed and is operated by former Obama campaign and administration staff. It is an organization whose “Mission Statement” is to fulfill Obama’s dream of “Fundamentally Changing America”, which is to ultimately make America part of George Soros’ “one world order”.


How did a group like OFA get a tax exempt designation like this?  As you can see from the information above there is ample opportunity for racist and corrupt IRS or DOJ personnel to make a BIASED DECISION regarding a group’s eligibility for tax exempt designation, or if they can keep their tax exempt designation if they already have one. more

Disruption:

AMAC Calls for Peaceful Opposition to Violent Protesters Bent on Anarchy

WASHINGTON, DC, Feb 17 – “Anti-government protesters seek to disrupt the work of our nation’s elected officials on a scale never seen before,” says Dan Weber, president of the Association of Mature American Citizens.  “And former President Obama says he approves,”

In fact, Weber notes, 10 days after he left office Mr. Obama’s spokesman issued a statement saying, “President Obama is heartened by the level of engagement taking place in communities around the country,”


The AMAC chief points to the fact that the protesters appear to be well organized, earning the moniker, Obama’s Army.  That’s how the New York Times described the phenomenon. more



Orwellian categorization and excoriation of those who fight for true freedom:


The Globalist Long Game – Redefine Liberty Activism As Evil “Populism” 

Since early 2016 (according to globalists and the mainstream publications featuring their opinions), there has been a rising tide of nationalists and “populists” in western nations.  This sudden surge in “populism” is inexorably tied to the Brexit movement and the support for candidates like Donald Trump.  Populism will overrun the existing “stability” of globalism and cause severe economic crisis in numerous countries.  It finds its roots in the “less educated” portions of the population, as well as in older generations that think they have something to lose if globalism succeeds.  It is also driven by an “irrational fear” of economic change, global interdependence and multiculturalism.  Populists are predominantly naive and desperate for “strongmen” leaders to fight for them.  Some of them are motivated by self interest, while others are motivated by racism.

 
It is well worth the read to go here for the entire article.

Traitors within:


In her article  Flynn, Trump, and Countering The Four Horsemen of the Liberal Apocalypse, Susan Swift of Politichicks discusses the political assassination of Flynn by the shadow government set up by Trump’s predecessor.

Eli Lake called it a political assassination.  The New York Times steadfastly maintains there is “no evidence” that the Trump campaign was colluding with the Russians to influence the election.  But that didn’t stop the Four Horseman of the Liberal Apocalypse from taking down General Micheal [sic] Flynn.

Who are the Four Horseman of the Liberal Apocalypse? The Media, the Establishment RINOs, Elected Democrats, and Obama’s shadowy unelected bureaucrat operatives embedded within the DeepState.   These Four Horsemen continue to work in coordination to weaken and delegitimize President Trump’s election triumph over of Hillary Clinton.  Former President Barrack Obama appears to be leading the Horsemen’s charge.


Author Ed Klein told Pete Hegseth on Fox and Friends Weekend in December that former President “Barack Obama is setting up a shadow government in Washington DC to undermine President Trump after Inauguration Day.”

  
Is this not sedition? entire article 



A very gloomy view of what is to come:

 
Paul Craig Roberts writes, “The effort of Americans to bring govt back under their control via Trump has been defeated by the deep state”

 

Former National Security Agency (NSA) spy John Schindler tweeted on Twitter that a senior intelligence community colleague sent him an email stating that the deep state had declared nuclear war on Trump and that “He will die in jail.”


It is possible that this will be the case…

Those at work overturning the 2016 presidential election are so confident of their success that they publicly declare their preference for coup over democracy. The Zionist neoconservative warmonger Bill Kristol has expressed his preference for a deep state coup over democratically elected President Trump.


The effort of the American people to bring government back under their control via Trump has been defeated by the deep state.


Chris Hedges argument that revolution is the only way that Americans can reclaim their country continues to gain credibility.


The words that doomed Trump when he declared war before he had his army assembled:


“There is nothing the political establishment will not do, and no lie they will not tell, to hold on to their prestige and power at your expense. The Washington establishment, and the financial and media corporations that fund it, exists for only one reason: to protect and enrich itself. This is a crossroads in the history of our civilization that will determine whether or not We The People reclaim control over our government.”

  
Truer words were never spoken   entire article



Bryan Dean Wright pens,  I’m a Democrat (and ex-CIA) but the spies plotting against Trump are out of control.

Over the past few months, America has lurched from partisan warfare to the cliffs of an existential crisis.

Multiple reports show that my former colleagues in the intelligence community have decided that they must leak or withhold classified information due to unsettling connections between President Trump and the Russian Government.


Said an intelligence officer: “I know what’s best for foreign policy and national security
… And I’m going to act on that.

Some of us might applaud this man, including a few of my fellow Democrats. In their minds, this is a case of Mr. Smith Goes to Langley to do battle against a corrupt President Trump.


One small problem. The intelligence officer quoted above was actually Aldrich Ames, a CIA traitor whose crime of treason in the 1980s and 1990s resulted in the compromise of more than 100 assets. Many were tortured and executed as a result.


Ames’ flawed logic is eerily similar to that of his present-day colleagues who are engaged in a shadow war with their commander in chief. They, too, have decided that their superior judgment is more important than following the law.   continue




The public catching on is this nation’s only hope:
Again, Daniel Greenfield:  Why the Media’s Trump Lie Machine is Failing


Every five minutes the many mouths of the media broadcast, type, post and shriek that President Donald J. Trump is a liar. After months of this treatment, more voters find him truthful than them.


49% of voters believe that Trump and his people are telling the truth. Only 39% believe that the media is.

The media’s war on President Trump isn’t hurting him. It is destroying the media’s own credibility.


After Trump’s win, the media came to the conclusion that its biased attacks on him had been too subtle and understated to connect with the “dumb” voters. So it decided to be far more overt about its smears.

The New York Times, which used to be the best at disguising its biases in the omnipotent voice of professional journalism, called President Trump a liar in its headlines.  The media cheered this descent into naked partisanship by the paper of record. But it didn’t hurt Trump. It hurt the Times.

Headlines blasting President Trump as a “liar” are easy enough to find on the Internet. The New York Times derives much of its influence from its appearance of serious professionalism.  Calling Trump names made it hard to distinguish the New York Times from the Huffington Post. …


Truth is not who you pretend to be. It’s who you are…

…The media wanted the authority to determining who was lying without the responsibility of telling the truth. As the media made its partisan bias more obvious, it lost the credibility it needed. The more the media called President Trump a liar, the more the public believed that the media was lying. continue

Patriots, be prepared. Events can go many different ways, all out civil war, a faux peace, or a leftist temporary retreat waiting for another opportunity.  Much depends not only upon the Trump administration’s ability to manage the chaos, but upon the citizens who support him as well.

MONEY is the DRIVING Force behind the OUTRAGE over Extreme Vetting of refugees!!!!

2/1/2017 9:02 AM

 

This outrage by the Left over extreme vetting of Immigrants and illegal immigration in general is about MONEY!!!!!  And the MONEY that these Political Obstructionists get from the Federal Government through Donations from the NGOs that benefit from Legal and Illegal Immigration operations ALSO is the MONEY that FEEDS to the MS MEDIA through Campaign advertising and other Political Advertising!!!!!

 

Here is the BREAKDOWN on how this SWAMP works!!!!!

 

Here’s why the Politicians are Pissed off over Trump wanting to stop Illegal Immigration …. They want their Money …… The Fiscal Cost of Unlawful Immigrants and Amnesty to the U.S. Taxpayer

 

http://www.heritage.org/research/reports/2013/05/the-fiscal-cost-of-unlawful-immigrants-and-amnesty-to-the-us-taxpayer

 

SUMMARY

 

This paper provides a fiscal distribution analysis of households headed by unlawful immigrants: individuals who reside in the U.S. in violation of federal law. The paper measures the total government benefits and services received by unlawful immigrant households and the total taxes paid. The difference between benefits received and taxes paid represents the total resources transferred by government on behalf of unlawful immigrants from the rest of society.

 

KEY TAKEAWAYS

 

  • There are approximately 3.7 million unlawful immigrant households in the U.S. These households impose a net fiscal burden of around $54.5 billion per year.

 

  • Amnesty for unlawful immigrants can pose large fiscal costs for U.S. taxpayers including public education, welfare benefits, and other benefits and services.

 

  • Policymakers must ensure that the interaction of welfare and other financial transfer programs with immigration does not expand the fiscally dependent population.

With illegal immigrant leaders picketing the White House, screaming demands that President Obama include them in “any future negotiations;” with the possibly orchestrated influx of unaccompanied children from Central America jumping the U.S. border with questionable motives; and with the White House gleefully doing anything it wants and taunting the Republicans into a suicidal impeachment frenzy over the failed rule of law, American politics is degenerating into a surreal drama of criminal hubris, strategic cunning and livid stupidity.

 

 

A major sticking point seems to be the motive: Do they come because they expect amnesty, a better life and a free ride in America? Even 51 percent of Hispanics think that’s the real motive. The us-and-them factor in this crisis is not so much racism as it is nationalism.

 

 

First comes the toll on our schools. Obama is distributing more than 100,000 school-age illegal immigrant children nationwide who bring low levels of education that will devastate classroom averages. …

 

 

The dollar cost of illegal immigrant children to schools has not been assessed, but the costs to the federal government are exact and visible to anyone who searches USASpending.gov. Enter the search term “unaccompanied alien children” and you will get the total spending since 2009: $1.1 billion — paid to various nonprofit organizations that run government-approved programs.

Ben Swann Silenced:

http://allnewspipeline.com/Pizzagate_Ben_Swann_Cryptic_Hints.php

 

Soon After Ben Swann’s ‘Pizzagate’ Report Went Viral, The MSM Anchor ‘Disappeared’ – Now He’s Back Leaving Cryptic Messages On Social Media, Warning He’s Going To ‘Go Dark’ On February 1st

 

What Does Ben Swann Know That We Don’t Know?

ben-swann-tweet-on-going-dark

 

According to this new story from the Atlantic Journal Constitution, soon after Atlanta’s CBS46 mainstream media news anchor Ben Swann did what was called a ‘groundbreaking’ story on what the MSM is calling ‘fake news’, #Pizzagate, Swann has been off the air. For those who may have missed it, you can see Swann in that groundbreaking look at ‘pizzagate’ in the final video below.

After the election was over and ‘pizzagate’ had largely been ‘forgotten’ and disappeared from much of the news, Swann created an online firestorm after ‘reviving’ the pizzagate story. As the lead newspaper in Atlanta reported, Swann has been off the air since then with his co-anchor Sharon Reed doing their program by herself.

And while the ‘where is Ben Swann’ stories and threads had since started hitting various websites and internet forums as well as videos such as the 2nd video below from Victurus Libertas VL, we get a brand new update from Swann himself that only adds several layers to the mystery.

 

2nd Swann Going Dark Tweet

2nd-swann-going-dark-tweet

 

… after a lengthy and unplanned hiatus, yet both his Facebook page and his Twitter page will be going dark in what appears to be a cryptic message that some have already begun to try to decode.

 

 

What is going on with Ben Swann and ‘pizzagate’ that suddenly caused him to miss work with a reappearance coming soon but a total ‘blackout’ on all of his social media? Was Swann threatened? Swann consistently has ranked as one of the most credible mainstream news performers anywhere in America and as we read in the screenshots below from his fans, people are very, very concerned about the health and safety of Swann and his family right now.

 

 

And since Swann brought pizzagate back to the MSM, his numbers in Atlanta had absolutely exploded as seen in the graphic below. However, Swann also just posted a notice to his Facebook page letting followers know that he was canceling a fundraising drive he was doing to expose the US government’s ties to ISIS. Swann did not explain why. Why the sudden changes soon after his popularity exploded as Americans realized once again that they could trust somebody in the MSM?

Hey guys, Ben Swann here… I want to thank everyone who has contributed to the ISIS video crowdfund. Unfortunately, we are not going to be moving forward with that project at this time. EVERYONE who contributed WILL BE REFUNDED THEIR FULL DONATION.

Swann had also recently done a report on the US government’s usage of propaganda and his website Truth In Media is filled with stories that the mainstream media will either never dare touch or likely will call ‘fake news’.

 

 

As this recent story over at Intellihub points out, one youtuber who has been covering ‘pizzagate’ has recently claimed that the lives of his family and loved ones had been threatened over his work covering this abomination.

And while we would never claim nor report that all of the ‘theories’ surrounding ‘pizzagate’ are true, the fact that the global elite have long been reported to have ties to such behavior absolutely proves we’ll never get the truth from them.

Failure of American Journalism: Pizzagate and the muzzling of Ben Swann

 

“Pizzagate” is the term given to speculations and assertions that there is a pedophile network connecting Democratic Party élites and two Washington, D.C. pizzerias, Besta Pizza and Comet Ping Pong. The latter is a Disneyish pizzeria owned by a homosexual named James Alefantis, who is a former boyfriend of David Brock, a Democratic Party operative and Clinton loyalist.

 

The word “pizza” in Pizzagate isn’t just a reference to Comet Ping Pong pizzeria but stems from the many cryptic references to “pizza” and other food items (“hotdogs”; “pasta”; “tempting” “cheeses”; “yummy” “sauces”) in a collection of curious emails sent by and to John Podesta, a longtime Democratic Party operative who was White House chief of staff in Bill Clinton’s administration, White House counselor in the Obama administration and, most recently, chairman of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.

 

Some say the references to “pizza” and “hotdogs” are code words used by pedophiles …

 

 

Given the reluctance of both the MSM and AltMedia big shots like Jones and Madsen to investigate and report on Pizzagate, it was a breath of fresh air when a member of the MSM produced a TV report on the subject.

 

He is Ben Swann, an award-winning reporter and anchorman of CBS affiliate WGCL (CBS46) in Atlanta, Georgia, on which he had a regular investigative segment called “Reality Check”. Swann joined CBS46 as an anchor for its early evening and late newscasts in June 2015.

 

On January 18, 2017, CBS46 broadcasted Swann’s “Reality Check” report on Pizzagate, which Swann published to YouTube that same day:

 

https://youtu.be/l5AxV1SrTkE

 

As you can see, that video is no longer available, scrubbed from YouTube.

 

Fortunately, citizen journalists had saved Swann’s report, which you can see/hear for yourself in this video that, no doubt, will also be removed from YouTube:

Human Trafficking In America

 

Human Trafficking is defined by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime as “the acquisition of people by improper means such as force, fraud or deception, with the aim of exploiting them.” Sex is just one aspect of trafficking. Forced labor, slavery, servitude and even forced organ donation are other horrifying aspects of this disturbing and growing activity. Human trafficking rakes in an estimated $32 BILLION a year and is tied with arms dealing as the second largest criminal industry in the world (drugs are number 1). …

 

 

On American soil, the greatest problem with human trafficking is that most Americans view the issue as happening in Thailand, Russia, Asia, China or Singapore — in other words, human trafficking happens there not here. The sobering fact is that it’s not just a third world problem. It’s everyone’s problem and it’s the fastest growing illegal industry in the world, affecting us all, not just “them”.

 

It is estimated that 200,000 women annually are forced into the sex trade in the US. The majority of these are American, not imported from other countries. The largest annual human trafficking event in the US is the Super Bowl. Difficult to believe? You bet. What’s more American than the Super Bowl?

 

We think of football parties and tailgating, not men looking to pay for sex with enslaved victims. It is the party atmosphere and the enormity of the crowds which help pimps and victims to go unnoticed.

It’s obvious that the “Indoctrination process” that the colleges are using is to organize the individuals mind to except the idea of Communism. Then the globalists can implement the Central Government idea and impose the kind of restrictions that they will say is for slowing global warming but actually is to reduce the human rate of consumption and reverse the life expectancy of humans to bring on depopulation. Communism has always led to depopulation, and that’s what these globalists want.

FACEBOOK founder Mark Zuckerberg is funding the development of technology with the potential to read humans’ minds.

 

The billionaire has just pledged to hand over £40 million to researchers working to combat deadly diseases.

 

This cash will be distributed by the Chan Zuckerberg Biohub, an organisation which aims to “enable doctors to cure, prevent or manage all diseases during our children’s lifetime”.

 

Some of the projects are likely to ring alarm bells among paranoid people who fear technological progress will come at the expense of human freedom.

 

One of the researchers who will receive funding is Dr. Rikky Muller, CEO and founder of a firm called Cortera.

 

She is working to develop “clinically viable and minimally invasive neural interfaces” designed to be used by people suffering severe disabilities.

 

 

The Chan Zuckerberg Biohub wrote: “Muller is developing new wireless microsystems that directly interface with the brain for long-term, minimally-invasive neurological recording.

 

“Her broad goal is to engineer novel implants that can simultaneously sense and alter physiological responses to enable drug delivery and the treatment of neuropsychiatric disorders.”

 

 

However, similar technology could one day be used to directly record human thoughts and allow artificial intelligence to read our minds.

 

“With brain computer interfaces, AI can power future machines to understand human thoughts and emotions, even without physical or vocal communication,” said Debarun Guha Thakurta, a senior research analyst at Frost & Sullivan.

 

“Instead of simply mimicking the human brain structurally, AI will be able to impart human-like intelligence to machines.”

 

Any corporation that can read human thought would wield tremendous power, whilst a government with the same ability could build a totalitarian state which would make George Orwell’s 1984 look like a democratic paradise.

Nina Fedoroff takes us around the world to understand where the Zika virus came from, what impact it is having on women and children, and how it is now spreading here in the United States. She proposes a new solution for stopping the virus — not fumigation or pesticides, but by using biology and genetics to stop the infected mosquitos from multiplying. But there are roadblocks in the way, driven by fear and bureaucracy.

Monsanto to Genetically modify Life on Earth. This story is by the very Liberal Mother Jones:

 

http://www.motherjones.com/tom-philpott/2011/08/monsanto-gm-super-insects     

 

Attack of the Monsanto Superinsects

 

Over the past decade and a half, as Monsanto built up its globe-spanning, multi-billion-dollar genetically modified seed empire, it made two major pitches to farmers.

 

The first involved weeds. Leave the weed management to us, Monsanto insisted. We’ve engineered plants that can survive our very own herbicide. Just pay up for our patented, premium-priced seeds, spray your fields with our Roundup herbicide whenever the fancy strikes, and —voilà! — no more weeds.

 

The second involved crop-eating insects. We’ve isolated the toxic gene of a commonly used bacterial pesticide called Bt, Monsanto announced, and spliced it directly into crops. Along with corn and soy, you will literally be growing the pesticide that protects them. Plant our seeds, and watch your crops thrive while their pests shrivel and die.

 

 

And now insects are developing resistance to Monsanto’s insecticide-infused crops, reports the Wall Street Journal. Fields planted in Monsanto’s Bt corn in some areas of the Midwest are showing damage from the corn rootworm—the very species targeted by Monsanto’s engineered trait. An Iowa State University scientist has conclusively identified Bt-resistant root worms in four Iowa fields, the Journal reports.

 

The findings are not likely isolated to those fields—just like spotting a cockroach on your kitchen floor probably signals an infestation, not that a lone cockroach randomly stumbled in for a visit. Sure enough READ ENTIRETY (Attack of the Monsanto Superinsects; By TOM PHILPOTT; Mother Jones; 8/30/11 5:04 AM)

 

So, if they are questioning this, then it is worth questioning because at the same time the Liberal Fact Checking site Snopes is calling this topic False, and Snopes is VERY protective of Monsanto so why is that? http://www.snopes.com/tag/monsanto/  [- tag articles as of 2/17/17:]

Monsanto Protection Act

Does the Monsanto Protection Act create a ‘precedent-setting limitation on judicial review of genetically-engineered crops’?

 

CLAIM:   The Monsanto Protection Act creates a “precedent-setting limitation on judicial review of genetically-engineered crops.”

 

snopes-check  MIXTURE

 

EXAMPLE: [Collected via e-mail, March 2013]

 

I received an email regarding The Monsanto Protection Act is this true?

 

On March 21st, Congress passed The Monsanto Protection Act that was slipped into a short term budget resolution. This dangerous rider found in Section 735 of the bill would create a precedent-setting limitation on judicial review of genetically-engineered crops, allowing them to be planted without federal safeguards in place that protect our environment, family farmers and citizens.

 

Call President Obama today; tell him to strike section 735 from the 2013 Continuing Resolution. Add your voice to the groundswell in response to this dangerous bill!

 

Together we WILL be setting right this gross imbalance!

 

ORIGINS:   On 26 March 2013, President Obama signed into law a bill passed by the House and Senate earlier that month known as the “Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2013” to provide funding for various federal agencies through the end of the 2013 fiscal year. One of the provisions included in that bill in the section for “Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and related agencies” was Section 735, variously dubbed the “Farmer Assurance Provision” or the “‘Monsanto Protection Act,” an inclusion which reignited a clash between the agribusiness industry and food safety groups. The former maintains that the Farmer Assurance Provision prevents activists from manipulating the court system to force farmers to abandon or destroy genetically modified (GMO) or genetically engineered (GE) crops that have already received U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) safety approval; the latter assert that Congress kowtowed to big business by sneaking into an appropriations bill a provision that allows large biotech companies like Monsanto to do an end run around the court system and avoid legitimate legal challenges to the safety of their products:

 

 

The provision directs the Secretary of Agriculture to grant temporary deregulation status to allow growers to continue the cultivation of biotech crops that had previously been approved by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) while legal challenges to the safety of those crops are underway, and it prevents courts from interceding in the review process — a situation which critics contend unconstitutionally bars the court system from taking part in ensuring the safety of food products:

 

 

The provisions of this bill (including the “Monsanto Protection Act”) were originally to remain in effect for six months, until the end of the fiscal year on 30 September 2013. The bill was later extended to expire on 15 December 2013.

So, 2 liberal activists contradicting each other is worth noting!!!!!!

 

And we are to trust the same Bureaucracy that sees the world as Over populated? HA!!!  Read this from the Washington Post 13 years ago, Tempe, AZ: I’ve heard that researchers are playing around with honeybees. Will my honey still be safe to eat if the honeybees are genetically modified?

 

Michael Fernandez: Yes, scientists are attempting to genetically engineer honeybees to resist parasites and diseases and protect them from pesticides. It would be FDA’s responsibility to ensure that honey from GM honeybees would be safe for consumers:

Michael Fernandez of the Pew Initiative on Food and Biotechnology was online to answer reader questions on his organization’s new report on scientific research into genetically modified insects.

 

Research is already underway to create mosquitos that are incapable of carrying malaria. In a Jan. 22 article, Washington Post reporter Justin Gillis wrote: “The Pew report noted that someone is going to have to decide what kind of research is needed to estimate the likely effects, and then decide whether the benefits of releasing the designer mosquitoes are worth the risks. And that decision will have to be made in a complex international environment: Many African and Asian countries are ill-equipped to assess elaborate genetic technologies, and their citizens are sometimes suspicious even of simple technologies designed in the West.”

Obama’s Shadow Government Is Organizing To Undermine Trump

Obama’s Shadow Government Is Organizing To Undermine Trump

 

By John Daniel Davidson

FEBRUARY 16, 2017

The Federalist

 

The leaks that led to Michael Flynn’s resignation are just the beginning. Obama and his loyalists in and outside government are working to undermine Trump.

 

Once out of office, ex-presidents usually fade into private life and stay out of politics. They write memoirs, serve on corporate boards, and start charitable foundations. George W. Bush retired to his ranch in Texas and, most recently, painted portraits of veterans wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan. Bill Clinton was briefly thrust back into politics during Hillary’s two failed presidential campaigns, but most of his post-White House career consisted of flying around the world raising boatloads of money for his family’s now-defunct charity.

 

There are exceptions, of course. Jimmy Carter threw himself into international diplomacy, mediating an agreement in 1994 to return exiled President Jean-Bertrand Aristide to power in Haiti, and generally agitating for a Palestinian state.

 

Then there is Obama. Less than a month out of office, the broad contours of Obama’s post-presidency career are already taking shape. Obama and his loyalists, it seems, will remain in the center of the political fray, officially and unofficially, in an organized effort to undermine the Trump administration.

 

The bizarre scandal now unfolding over the resignation of national security advisor Michael Flynn is a case in point. Flynn’s resignation was prompted by a series of coordinated and anonymous leaks from current and former Obama administration officials in our domestic intelligence agencies.

 

Regardless of any valid criticism of Flynn, the leaks are part of a larger, loosely organized effort now underway to preserve Obama’s legacy. This effort involves Obama-era officials still inside the federal government, former Obama staffers working in the private sector, and Obama himself.

 

This isn’t some conspiracy theory. After the election, Obama indicated he intends to stay involved in the political fray. In an email to his supporters on his last day in office, Obama encouraged them to stay engaged, promising “I’ll be right there with you every step of the way.” Less than two weeks later, he issued a statement saying he was “heartened” by anti-Trump protests over the executive order on immigration.

 

Obama Is Jumping Back Into The Political Fray

 

But there’s more to all this than Obama issuing solidarity statements to Trump protestors. For one thing, the former president isn’t moving back to Chicago. The Obama family will remain in Washington DC, within a couple miles of the White House, for the next two years as Obama’s youngest daughter finishes high school.

 

From there, Obama will help direct his new foundation, which he has said will be a “startup for citizenship.” That could mean a lot things, but in light of his other plans it suggests the Obama Foundation will be a political grassroots organization designed to mobilize progressive activists.

 

Obama has also announced he’ll be working with former Attorney General Eric Holder on a political action group called the National Democratic Redistricting Committee. Its goal is to get Democrats elected at the state and local level ahead of the next redrawing of congressional districts. Last month, Obama reportedly met with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, and Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe to strategize about redistricting.

 

In addition to these pursuits, the former president will likely play a prominent role in a network of progressive nonprofits, most notably Organizing for Action, the political group that grew out of Obama’s first campaign. OFA has kept a low profile in recent years, and if Clinton had won it likely would have shut down.

 

But last week, OFA officials told NBC News the organization was ramping up operations nationwide in an effort to preserve Obama’s signature achievements like the Affordable Care Act. As part of that effort, the group recently hired 14 field organizers in key states, adding to a growing infrastructure that boasts more than 250 offices nationwide and more than 32,000 volunteers.

 

Former Obama Staffers Are Speaking Out

 

Obama of course isn’t alone in all this. Trump’s victory has mobilized his top aides and staffers to take action, too. Former Obama staffer Tommy Vietor told the Daily Beast that, had Clinton won, “I would have been inclined to feel comfortable that Obama’s legacy and the things we worked on were safe.”

 

Instead, Vietor, along with former Obama administration staffers Jon Favreau and Jon Lovett, are launching a new podcast, Pod Save America, under their new joint media venture, Crooked Media.

 

The purpose of the company should be fairly obvious. “In the battle between Donald Trump and the media, we are firmly on the side of the media,” Favreau told the Daily Beast, adding that he’s not interested in “the veneer of objectivity.” “We’re always going to be Obama guys, we’re very open and honest about that.”

 

Favreau has also been helping create Obama’s new foundation, whose mission, he says, “is to get people involved in civic life and get people engaged in politics.” Of Crooked Media, Favreau says, “I think we would very much like to be the media company version of that. So it’s certainly inspired by a lot of what Obama has talked about in terms of the media over the last several months.”

 

A host of other former Obama staffers have simply taken to social media to voice their opposition to Trump. One former senior administration official told Yahoo News, “There are more than a few of us who believe deeply in holding this administration’s feet to the fire—especially when they offer falsehoods to the American people and distort our record. We have an email chain going where we share impressions, etc.”

 

As the leaks keep flowing from our intelligence agencies and the tweets keep flying from former Obama officials, keep in mind that although we haven’t heard much from Obama himself yet, the Trump administration is going to keep feeling the disruptions of what amounts to a shadow government.

 

Obama had eight years in the White House to secure his legacy. Any efforts on his part to undermine his successor aren’t just an affront to the principles of our democracy, they’re an admission that he and his acolytes never put much stock in democracy to begin with.

Michael Flynn ousted by Dem fake outrage and MSM fake news, WHY?

 

The experts I have heard claim to the best of their knowledge that Flynn broke no laws by communicating with the Russians prior to President Trump’s inauguration on January 20, 2017. Rather the resignation occurred because of the Dem harassment and Flynn apparently lied about the content to Vice President Pence.

 

AND YET the Dems are still crucifying both Flynn and Trump over a communication that was quite normal for a presidential transition team from election day through Inauguration Day.

Former Obama Officials, Loyalists Waged Secret Campaign to Oust Flynn

Sources: Former Obama officials, loyalists planted series of stories to discredit Flynn, bolster Iran deal

 

By Adam Kredo

February 14, 2017 3:26 pm

Washington Free Beacon

 

The abrupt resignation Monday evening of White House national security adviser Michael Flynn is the culmination of a secret, months-long campaign by former Obama administration confidantes to handicap President Donald Trump’s national security apparatus and preserve the nuclear deal with Iran, according to multiple sources in and out of the White House who described to the Washington Free Beacon a behind-the-scenes effort by these officials to plant a series of damaging stories about Flynn in the national media.

 

The effort, said to include former Obama administration adviser Ben Rhodes—the architect of a separate White House effort to create what he described as a pro-Iran echo chamber—included a small task force of Obama loyalists who deluged media outlets with stories aimed at eroding Flynn’s credibility, multiple sources revealed.

 

The operation primarily focused on discrediting Flynn, an opponent of the Iran nuclear deal, in order to handicap the Trump administration’s efforts to disclose secret details of the nuclear deal with Iran that had been long hidden by the Obama administration.

 

Insiders familiar with the anti-Flynn campaign told the Free Beacon that these Obama loyalists plotted in the months before Trump’s inauguration to establish a set of roadblocks before Trump’s national security team, which includes several prominent opponents of diplomacy with Iran. The Free Beacon first reported on this effort in January.

 

Sources who spoke to the Free Beacon requested anonymity in order to speak freely about the situation and avoid interfering with the White House’s official narrative about Flynn, which centers on his failure to adequately inform the president about a series of phone calls with Russian officials.

 

Flynn took credit for his missteps regarding these phone calls in a brief statement released late Monday evening. Trump administration officials subsequently stated that Flynn’s efforts to mislead the president and vice president about his contacts with Russia could not be tolerated.

 

However, multiple sources closely involved in the situation pointed to a larger, more secretive campaign aimed at discrediting Flynn and undermining the Trump White House.

 

“It’s undeniable that the campaign to discredit Flynn was well underway before Inauguration Day, with a very troublesome and politicized series of leaks designed to undermine him,” said one veteran national security adviser with close ties to the White House team. “This pattern reminds me of the lead up to the Iran deal, and probably features the same cast of characters.”

 

The Free Beacon first reported in January that, until its final days in office, the Obama administration hosted several pro-Iran voices who were critical in helping to mislead the American public about the terms of the nuclear agreement. This included a former Iranian government official and the head of the National Iranian American Council, or NIAC, which has been accused of serving as Iran’s mouthpiece in Washington, D.C.

 

Since then, top members of the Obama administration’s national security team have launched a communications infrastructure after they left the White House, and have told reporters they are using that infrastructure to undermine Trump’s foreign policy.

 

“It’s actually Ben Rhodes, NIAC, and the Iranian mullahs who are celebrating today,” said one veteran foreign policy insider who is close to Flynn and the White House. “They know that the number one target is Iran … [and] they all knew their little sacred agreement with Iran was going to go off the books. So they got rid of Flynn before any of the [secret] agreements even surfaced.”

 

Flynn had been preparing to publicize many of the details about the nuclear deal that had been intentionally hidden by the Obama administration as part of its effort to garner support for the deal, these sources said.

 

Flynn is now “gone before anybody can see what happened” with these secret agreements, said the second insider close to Flynn and the White House.

 

Sources in and out of the White House are concerned that the campaign against Flynn will be extended to other prominent figures in the Trump administration.

 

One senior White House official told the Free Beacon that leaks targeting the former official were “not the result of a series of random events.”

 

“The drumbeat of leaks of sensitive material related to General Flynn has been building since he was named to his position,” said the official, who is a member of the White House’s National Security Council. “Last night was not the result of a series of random events. The president has lost a valuable adviser and we need to make sure this sort of thing does not happen again.”

 

Other sources expressed concern that public trust in the intelligence community would be eroded by the actions of employees with anti-Trump agendas.

 

“The larger issue that should trouble the American people is the far-reaching power of unknown, unelected apparatchiks in the Intelligence Community deciding for themselves both who serves in government and what is an acceptable policy they will allow the elected representatives of the people to pursue,” said the national security adviser quoted above.

 

“Put aside the issue of Flynn himself; that nameless, faceless bureaucrats were able to take out a president’s national security adviser based on a campaign of innuendo without evidence should worry every American,” the source explained.

 

Eli Lake, a Bloomberg View columnist and veteran national security reporter well sourced in the White House, told the Free Beacon that Flynn earned a reputation in the Obama administration as one of its top detractors.

 

“Michael Flynn was one of the Obama administration’s fiercest critics after he was forced out of the Defense Intelligence Agency,” said Lake, who described “the political assassination of Michael Flynn” in his column published early Tuesday.

 

“[Flynn] was a withering critic of Obama’s biggest foreign policy initiative, the Iran deal,” Lake said. “He also publicly accused the administration of keeping classified documents found in the Osama bin Laden raid that showed Iran’s close relationship with al Qaeda. He was a thorn in their side.”

 

Lake noted in his column that he does not buy fully the White House’s official spin on Flynn’s resignation.

 

“For a White House that has such a casual and opportunistic relationship with the truth, it’s strange that Flynn’s ‘lie’ to Pence would get him fired,” Lake wrote. “It doesn’t add up.”

 

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer stated in his daily briefing that “the evolving and eroding level of trust as a result of this situation and a series of other questionable incidents is what led the president to ask General Flynn for his resignation.”

 

A third source who serves as a congressional adviser and was involved in the 2015 fight over the Iran deal told the Free Beacon that the Obama administration feared that Flynn would expose the secret agreements with Iran.

 

“The Obama administration knew that Flynn was going to release the secret documents around the Iran deal, which would blow up their myth that it was a good deal that rolled back Iran,” the source said. “So in December the Obama NSC started going to work with their favorite reporters, selectively leaking damaging and incomplete information about Flynn.”

 

“After Trump was inaugurated some of those people stayed in and some began working from the outside, and they cooperated to keep undermining Trump,” the source said, detailing a series of leaks from within the White House in the past weeks targeting Flynn. “Last night’s resignation was their first major win, but unless the Trump people get serious about cleaning house, it won’t be the last.”

The 9th Court Usurps Power!

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 2/13/2017 7:19 AM

 

President Trump doesn’t need to issue any new travel ban order, that may or may not please the anti-American activist judges of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeal or other supporters of Islam and Sharia law (see Justice Elena Kagan’s tenure at Harvard University), open borders and international communism in the Supreme Court and within America’s own population. His original order was well within the U.S. Constitution and the law, and, in order to stop this current intrusion on the President’s authority in areas of foreign policy and national security, a usurpation of power and a judicial coup d’état, President Trump should defy the 9th Court and set to work with the Republican majority and any agreeable Democrats to limit the Supreme Court’s jurisdiction under Article III, Section 2 of the Constitution and reclaim stolen legislative powers for Congress.

 

It has universally been acknowledged for over 230 years that the President, the United States Commander-in-Chief, has broad authority and great leeway in all matters of immigration and foreign policy and national security [Judge Napolitano & NRO], which places the recent ruling of leftist activist judges Michelle Friedland (Obama appointee) and William Canby Jr. (Carter appointee) on par with an act of treason. These two judges are so willing to give President Trump a political black eye, allowing Trump’s “Muslim ban” campaign statements to be used in the evaluation of his executive order, that they have ignored the law, circumvented the Constitution and violated the separation of powers clause between coequal branches of government; and, they have blatantly dismissed the reality  of refugees, who can’t prove who they are and whether or not they have any ties to Islamic terrorist groups, while allowing district judge James Robart, another leftist activist judge (notwithstanding being a Bush appointee), to absurdly overrule the President of the United States on border security during wartime.

 

There is not any manner of violation against the U.S. Constitution and the 1965 Immigration Act in President Trump’s travel ban. Trump isn’t discriminating against anyone, but rather, he is looking at seven nations from a security threat assessment, which were already determined to be state sponsors of terror by former President Obama and his advisors, addressed in Section 1187 (a) (12) of an Obama-era provision of the immigration law.

 

And also in his executive order, President Trump expressly cites 1182 (f), enacted in 1952, which states: “Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such time as he may deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants … “. [Blog Editor: bold-italics is Editor’s]

 

In 1893, America was detaining approximately 20 percent of all hopeful immigrants reaching Ellis Island, due to sickness and disabilities, and anarchists and the insane were automatically rejected [Blog Editor: History.com point 4-  Immigrants were subject to physical and mental exams to ensure they were fit for admittance to the United States]. About two percent of these immigrants were judged unfit to become U.S. citizens and sent home on the next ship. By the 1920s, our government established quotas based on nationality and skill. And the majority of Americans have always understood that just like anyone has the right to decide who enters their home, so too, our nation has that same sovereign right.

 

No “moral obligation” to these refugees exists that can compel us to allow them to enter without knowing for certain who they are. The moral obligation to open our doors, often mentioned by the Leftists and International Communists, doesn’t mean America must throw reason and caution to the wind.

 

People who do not share our values — Islamofascists seeking to reach America’s shores and murder Americans — and anti-American “refugees” seeking to transform America into a Balkanized hell are not welcome here.

 

Why weren’t all of these anti-American leftist judges evoking Emma Lazarus and Lady Liberty lifting her lamp “beside the golden door” when President Clinton sent little 6 year old Elian Gonzalez back to a communist dictatorship in Cuba, under the executive branch’s broad power? Or when President Obama turned away real refugees fleeing Castro’s oppression “yearning to breathe free“? [Blog Editor: See Also Breitbart & 100% Fed Up]

 

America doesn’t have to destroy its cultural identity by helping foreigners, but this is precisely what Democrat commie bastards such as President Johnson and Senator Ted Kennedy intended to accomplish through the 1965 Immigration Act. This one law has eroded our cultural identity severely and created extremely detrimental demographic changes over time. And most recently, former President Obama specifically brought in one million immigrants from Muslim majority countries like Kosovo, Somalia, Yemen, Afghanistan and Pakistan, even though these countries were the origin of terrorists that have already attacked America.

 

Many of America’s “progressive” Leftists consider the destruction of America, as we know it, to be a desirable goal, however, most Americans reject their fundamental change. Americans who love this country want a strong America, that will be able to defeat the dangerous ideologies currently threatening Western Civilization.

 

Rebuke the disingenuous pious progressives who decry those of us supporting the President’s executive order as anti-immigrant and issue flowery utterances on sanctuary, when sanctuary is for the truly persecuted innocents, like the Christians in the Middle East. Exercising our first responsibility to protect ourselves and Our Beloved America bears no shame.

 

Senator Tom Cotton (R-Ala) stated that Trump’s executive order was “plainly legal” under both statute and the Constitution, adding: “No foreigner has a constitutional right to enter the United States and courts ought not second-guess sensitive national security decisions of the President. This misguided ruling is from the 9th Circuit, the most notoriously left-wing court in America and the most reversed court at the Supreme Court.

 

Representative Mo Brooks (R-Ala) said, “Unfortunately, American lives are at risk until this unfounded and reckless [9th Court restraining] order is reversed by the Supreme Court.”

 

How can Americans trust unreliable and corrupt courts with our national security? The Supreme Court ruled Obamacare to be both constitutional and a tax, after Obama called it a “penalty” for years. The courts have overturned the will of ‘We the People’ in numerous referendums and centuries of traditions and hundreds of state and federal laws, so that they could manufacture non-existent rights to abortion and deviant, perverse homosexual “marriage” [coupling], rights that cannot and never will be found in Madison’s Constitution.

 

Judges and justices are not empowered by the Constitution to make U.S. law or govern the nation. Those duties fall solely to Congress and the President.

 

Pat Buchanan observed on February 10th that President Andrew Jackson defied Chief Justice John Marshall’s “prohibition” against moving the Cherokee Indians across the Mississippi and to the western frontier. He also noted President Lincoln considered sending U.S. troops to arrest Chief Justice Roger Taney, when Taney declared Lincoln’s suspension of habeas corpus unconstitutional.

 

President Trump must simply defy U.S. District Judge Robart’s overly broad and illegal restraining order, upheld by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeal. He must order Homeland Security and his State Department and Justice Department to continue executing his executive order which is in accordance with the U.S. Constitution and existing law, because his act is a rare and righteous moment in this war against terrorism, the Islamofascists, the Radical Left of America and the International Communists, who seek our demise. And a Constitutional crisis is much preferred over more murdered innocent Americans.

On Defining Religion

 

By Nonie Darwish

February 12, 2017 5:00 am

Gatestone Institute

 

  • What the West does not understand is that Islam admits that government control is central to Islam and that Muslims must, sooner or later, demand to live under an Islamic government.

 

  • The majority of the world does not understand that much of the American media is in a propaganda war against the Trump administration simply because he names Islamic jihad and would prefer to see a strong and prosperous America as a world leader rather than to see a dictatorship — secular or theocratic — as a world leader.

 

  • Islam claims to be an Abrahamic religion, but in fact Islam came to the world 600 years after Christ, not to affirm the Bible but to discredit it; not to co-exist with “the people of the book” — Jews and Christians — but to replace them, after accusing them of intentionally falsifying the Bible.

 

  • Islam was created as a rebellion against the Bible and its values, and it relies on government enforcement to do so.

 

  • Political and legal (sharia) Islam is much more than a religion. Is the First Amendment a suicide pact?

 

Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) said that President Donald Trump’s 90-day ban on immigration from seven predominantly Muslim countries is “a religiously based ban,” and “if they can ban Muslims, why can’t they ban Mormons.” This has become the position of the Democratic Party and the mainstream media, which has influenced not only the American public but has convinced the majority of the world that America is “bad.” How can we blame the world, and even a good segment of American citizens, for hating America when such disingenuous and misleading claims are aired to the world from US officials and broadcast by American television channels?

 

The majority of the world does not understand that much of the American media is in a propaganda war against the Trump Administration simply because he names Islamic jihad and would prefer to see a strong and prosperous America as a world leader, rather than to see a dictatorship — secular or theocratic — as a world leader. He ran as a Republican; meanwhile, Democrats and the mainstream media refuse to engage in respectful and legitimate debate on the most vital threat to Western civilization in the twenty-first century: Islam. Truth has become irrelevant; people seem to prefer a political game of tug-of-war to sway public opinion against the Trump Administration, and, presumably, to elect Democrats forever. That is how the system is set up.

 

Political discussions on television have become extremely frustrating; they have turned into shouting matches and name-calling at the least informative levels. Television hosts often become instigators and participants in the shouting matches. The thinking is apparently that the louder they get, the more attractive the program will be. Meanwhile everyone is talking at once; the viewer cannot hear anyone, so the program could not be more boring.

 

Under the US Constitution, freedom of religion is protected. and Islam has been welcomed inside the West on that basis as one of the three Abrahamic religions. According to Western values and the Western understanding of the word, “religion” is supposed to be a personal relationship with God, where free will is of utmost importance; the believer has authority only over himself or herself when it comes to religious laws or punishing sins (such as leaving the religion or committing adultery) — quite different from criminal laws intended to protect society. Western values also allow followers of a religion the freedom to proselytize, but never by resorting to government enforcement.

 

Bottom line, the Western definition of religion is in harmony with the Biblical values of the human rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, and that all human beings are created equal under the law. It is considered a basic Western value to view God, family and country as a top priority.

 

Now let us compare these values to Islamic values:

 

  • Muslim citizens have the right to punish other citizens with humiliating, severe, cruel and unusual punishments such as death, flogging and amputation, for sinning against Allah, the Quran or Islam. Those “crimes” include leaving Islam, being a homosexual, or committing adultery. And if the Islamic government does not enforce such punishments, any Muslim on the street has the right to apply the punishment against another Muslim and not be prosecuted. That is why apostates, such as myself, cannot visit any Muslim county; the fear is not only from Islamic governments but from anyone on the street.

 

  • Being a Muslim is not a personal relationship with God, as it is under the Bible, but is enforced by the state at birth. When a child is born in Egypt to a Muslim father, the birth certificate is stamped “Muslim” and all government-issued documents as well. A child must learn Islamic studies in school and practice Islam throughout his life. In Egypt, the twin sons of a Christian divorced mother were forced to take Islamic studies and become Muslim just because their originally-Christian father converted to Islam. Today, in Egypt, I am still considered Muslim and such a status could never change if I ever lived there again.

 

  • Islamic law and leaders rely on government enforcement — under penalty of death — to keep Muslims within Islam and to convert the minority Christian population into Islam. Islamic sharia law, obliges Islamic states to enforce religious law, and if the Muslim head of state refuses to follow religious law, sharia permits the public to use force to remove the head of state from office.

 

  • Islam claims to be an Abrahamic religion, but in fact Islam came to the world 600 years after Christ, not to affirm the Bible but to discredit it; not to co-exist with “the people of the book,” Jews and Christians, but to replace them — after accusing them of intentionally falsifying the Bible. Islam was created as a rebellion against the Bible and its values, and relies on government enforcement to do so.

 

The tenets above are just a few of the differences in values between Islam, the Bible and the Western concept of religion. What the West does not understand is that Islam admits that government control is central to Islam, and Muslims must demand to live under an Islamic government sooner or later. That might explain the reason for the eternal violence in nearly all Muslim countries, between government being in the hands of a religious theocracy or of the military. Islam, as it is practiced today, has violated all Western definitions of religion and values.

 

Political and legal (sharia) Islam is much more than a religion. Is the First Amendment a suicide pact?
