“Because we believe that those in positions of high authority should be treated the same as every other American…”

 

(Kaylee McGhee, Liberty Headlines) Several lawmakers are asking Attorney General Jeff Sessions to investigate former Obama officials, including former FBI Director James Comey, for alleged violations of federal statutes.

Interview with Representative / Congressman on the House Judiciary Committee Ron DeSantis by Brian Kilmeade on the Fox News Fox and Friends program Wednesday April 18 2018 4/18/2018. [*** There is more interesting content in the description I will post after the McGhee cross post.]

 

Rep. Paul Gosar, R-Ariz., along with 10 other congressmen, sent a letter to Sessions, FBI Director Christopher Wray, and U.S. Attorney John Huber, saying there is evidence that Obama-era officials partook in corruption and even treason.

 

“The investigations into the Hillary Clinton and the Presidential campaign revealed egregious levels of misconduct and mishandling of sensitive information,” Gosar said in a statement.

 

Comey’s deliberate refusal to investigate Clinton’s misuse of a personal email system “suggests improper investigative conduct, potentially motivated by a political agenda,” Gosar said in the letter.

 

Comey’s recently published memoir, “A Higher Loyalty,” is also considered “questionable conduct” because of its detailed alleged conversations with President Trump, even confidential ones.

 

According to Gosar, this suggests Comey was responsible for sensitive leaks to the media, since he had already admitted to asking “a friend to share the content with the reporter.”

 

Such behavior is treasonous, the legislators said.

 

The lawmakers also want Hillary Clinton investigated, specifically her former presidential campaign’s connection to the Washington firm Fusion GPS, which led research into potential collusion between Russia and Trump, ultimately leading to the controversial Steele dossier.

 

Clinton disguised payments to Fusion GPS, violating the Federal Election Commission’s statutes.

 

The Steele dossier eventually led to an investigation into alleged collusion between Trump and Russia, which Gosar says is unfounded since the dossier was based on “false and unverified” information and funded by illegal means.

 

“The actions of these government officials outlined in our letter point to evidence of corruption and possible treason. It’s time these unelected bureaucrats stop hiding behind their titles and start being held to the same standards as every other American.”

Gosar said he wants everyone connected to the Steele dossier investigated, including FBI Agent Peter Strzok and FBI Counsel Lisa Page, who frequently had conversations via text about how they could undermine Trump’s presidential campaign and secure a Clinton win.

 

Strzok and Page also allegedly assisted Clinton in hiding her misuse of her personal email server, in which it’s believed she compromised confidential communications.

 

The Wall Street Journal reported in January that, “the latest texts show the FBI also eliminated evidence that Mrs. Clinton compromised high-level communications.”

 

“Because we believe that those in positions of high authority should be treated the same as every other American, we want to be sure that these potential violations of law are vetted properly,” the Congress members’ letter stated.

 

++++++++++++++++++++

*** Interesting text from the above Youtube video description section:

 

Congressman / Rep on the House Judiciary Committee Ron DeSantis said all of the following:

 

Remember, he (Former F.B.I. Director James Comey) testified to the Congress that he did not make any decision regarding Secretary Clinton until after she was interviewed. He was asked that specifically by one of my colleagues. And, yet the evidence that’s come out since then demonstrates that actually they made this determination months before not only interviewing Secretary Clinton but also interviewing a number of key witnesses. And, so the lack of candor with the Congress is something that needs to be investigated.

 

So, here’s the issue with Hillary Clinton: You notice, they (the Mueller Special Counsel) are supposedly going after (President Trump’s Attorney) Michael Cohen for an FEC (Federal Election Commission) violation because of this non-disclosure payment (to Stormy Daniels). Now, that’s not really a theory that’s been tried before…I mean, it seems a little odd to me…but if that is potentially an offense…Well, is it (Hillary Clinton and her campaign) camouflaging these payments? What they (Hillary Clinton and her campaign) did was they paid from the Clinton campaign to a law firm Perkins Coie and then Perkins Coie paid Fusion GPS Christopher Steel and that’s how the (phony Russian) Dossier was developed. So, they effectively disguised the fact that they were funding the Dossier. That’s not the way the Federal Election laws are supposed to work…You’re supposed to disclose your expenditures. So, if you (Mueller and his Special Counsel team) are going after (President Trump’s attorney) Cohen, why isn’t anybody also looking at how the Clintons handled this?

 

With regard to Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, we raise concerns regarding her decision to threaten with reprisal the former F.B.I. informant who tried to come forward in 2016 with insight into the Uranium One deal. He (the F.B.I. informant) testified in front of the Congress in the committees that he was threatened by Lynch’s Justice Department. We think that’s a serious issue and we think it deserves further investigation.

 

With regard to Former Acting Director of the F.B.I. Andrew McCabe, if they’re going to go after people like (Lieutenant General) Michael Flynn for a false statement to the F.B.I. on really a tangential fact that wasn’t material to any criminal offenses, but yet you have the deputy director (Andrew McCabe)…Remember, he initiated the investigation of Michael Flynn. You have the deputy director (Andrew McCabe) lying under oath…Is there going to be a similar case brought against him or do we have two different sets of rules for people?

 

With regard to top counterintelligence F.B.I. agent, Peter Strzok, and senior F.B.I. lawyer Lisa Page, if you look at those text messages, it raises a lot of alarming things, one of which is obstruction of a congressional investigation. He said, well we don’t want to provide all the 302s (summaries of interviews of subjects of an investigation), that’ll be explosive to Congress. So, they (Peter Strzok and Lisa Page) are going back and forth acknowledging that they’re not fully complying with Congress. So, we need to look at that and obviously a host of other issues that came out of these text messages.

Social Media Exclusion of Conservative Thought


John R. Houk

© April 18, 2018

 

If you are a stalwart American Conservative you are fully aware the largest social media platforms have been operating a stealth war that favors Leftists (aka Liberal, Progressive but maybe better described as Moonbat, Snowflake, etc.). With this understanding of Social Media, I received an email from ACT for America notifying readers that PayPal is now not allowing donations via its online platform evidently citing the erroneous “hate-speech” label on lists from organizations such as the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). The SPLC is as close to a Leftist Communist organization as it can be without admitting so.

 

Left-Wing organizations such as the SPLC are heavily invested in fundamentally transforming American away from American-Christian values into a brainwashed society that believes and acts as the State would have society (i.e. YOU) believe.

 

I am pretty vocal as a mouthpiece to preserve the fundamental Rights that have inalienably been endowed by the Creator of all that exists and intended to be protected by the Founding Fathers’ founding documents that define citizens of the USA as Americans.

 

I am vocal but small potatoes as far as the Leftist multi-conglomerate Social Platforms are concerned. Take heed, once the Leftist controlled Social Media giants deceptively limit and remove the dissemination of Conservative thought, the small potato bloggers will soon follow. Start massively complaining to these giants, because advertisers are interested in targeting potential Conservative customers as much as Liberal customers. Barring that, pray some Conservative geeks develop a social platform that is competitive and simple to use as the geeks that lean Left.

 

Find ways to donate to Conservative organizations being stifled by Facebook, Google, Youtube, Twitter and PayPal. In the meantime, support the small potato Conservatives who would be the next target if not already so. On a personal level, I’ve been in Facebook jail thrice, Google+ jail once, I’ve had a couple Youtube videos removed with a warning about my channel’s existence, yet I have escaped Twitter and Paypal’s notice to date.

 

I operate three blogs but only one has a PayPal buttonSlantRight 2.0, Paypal has graciously allowed my NCCR blog (WordPress platform) a donation link and if you visit the Overblog platform (European origin) – you could use this “Support SlantRight 2.0” support this small potato Conservative voice.

 

ACT’s email emphasizes how Left Oriented Social Media giants are targeting Conservative and Counterjihad organization using hate lists as those developed by the SPLC as an excuse to target Conservatives and Counterjihadists. Because of what PayPal has done to ACT for America, here is an embedded link to support ACT’s work in educating Americans about threats to their lives and communities: DONATE to ACT for America. This donation link by-passes PayPal.

 

Below is the ACT email. The email included the entire text of a WND.com post about this war on Conservatives. However, I am cross posting from WND rather than the email.

ACT for America is Under Attack!

Dear John,

 

A new study published from our friends at the Media Research Center confirms what we already knew. Conservative organizations are facing an existential threat from tech companies that are founded and run by leftists. You see, companies like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Google are more than just tech companies, they also control how and when we get our news.

 

Further, tech companies partner with leftists including the Southern Poverty Law Center to attack organizations, like ACT for America, who have been wrongly labeled a hate group. Cited in this article below is a specific example of how leftists used the SPLC to pressure Paypal into dropping us as a client. Because of these scare tactics, we can no longer accept donations through Paypal – a leftist run tech company.

 

The left’s mission is to silence any ideas differing from their own and with control of the most influential tech companies in the world – they are off to a great start.

 

For Freedom,

CONSERVATIVE MOVEMENT FACES EXISTENTIAL THREAT FROM TECH, STUDY SHOWS

‘If the right is silenced, billions of people will be cut off’

 

By BOB UNRUH

April 16, 2018

WND

 

CENSORED

 

A new study from the Media Research Center says conservatives, and their ideas, right now are facing an existential threat from tech companies founded and run by liberals who have decided that only their voice should be heard on disputed issues.

 

“The conservative movement is facing a threat to its very existence – a new, insidious form of media censorship,” the MRC report, available starting Monday, said.

 

“Media bias has always been an enemy of the right. Liberal journalists relied on talking points and talking heads that agreed with for their stories. Conservatives were typically ignored or even targeted by old-school media monopolies but while conservatives were excluded, their organizations were still allowed to function and even flourish. The internet gave the right new tools to go around traditional media – websites, email, video and social media. Conservatives’ power online continued to grow as groups expanded their base of supporters and were even able to flourish online.

 

“Now, all of that is under threat,” the report states.

 

How?

 

It’s not complicated. If the liberals who run the big companies, like Facebook, Google, Youtube and Twitter, all suppress conservative speech, and the report concludes they are, no messages that contradict leftist propaganda will be heard.

 

“Like it or not, social media is the communication form of the future – not just in the U.S., but worldwide. Just Facebook and Twitter combined reach 1.8 billion people. More than two-thirds of all Americans (68 percent) use Facebook. YouTube is pushing out TV as the most popular place to watch video. Google is the No. 1 search engine in both the U.S. And the world,” the study finds.

 

And those organizations are not about transparency and fairness.

 

“War is being declared on the conservative movement in this space and conservatives are losing – badly. If the right is silenced, billions of people will be cut off from conservative ideas and conservative media.

 

“It’s the new battleground of media bias. But it’s worse. That bias is not a war of ideas. It’s a war against ideas. It’s a clear effort to censor the conservative worldview from the public conversation,” the study said.

 

Among the key findings in the study is that Twitter leads in censorship – and Project Veritas even caught staffers boasting on hidden camera they had been censoring conservatives through a technique known as shadow banning.

 

There, users think their content is being seen widely, while Twitter deliberately suppresses it.

 

On Facebook, its trending feed has been caught hiding conservative topics.

 

A 2016 Gizmodo story warned of the bias, with testimonies from former employees they’d been instructed to “hide conservative content.”

 

“On the other hand,” the study said. “the term ‘black lives matter’ had also been placed into the trending section even though it was not actually trending.”

 

Google’s search functions, the study said, simply help Democrats.

 

“Google and Youtube’s corporate chairman Eric Schmidt is known to have helped Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign,” the study said. “The company’s search engine had deployed a similar bias in favor of Democrats.”

 

And YouTube simply shuts down conservatives’ videos. That deprives them of monetization first, but also the publicity that successful videos generate.

 

“YouTube moderators must take their cues from the rest of Google – from shutting down entire conservative channels ‘by mistake’ to removing videos that promote right-wing political views. YouTube’s special creators for change section is devoted to people using their ‘voices for social change’ and even highlights the work of a 9/11 truther.”

 

Further, tech companies partner with leftists including the Southern Poverty Law Center, and more, to try to further their campaigns.

 

It cites the SPLC and the Anti-Defamation League.

 

“Both claim to combat ‘hate,’ but treat standard conservative beliefs in faith and family as examples of that hatred. George Soros-funded Propublica is using information from both radical leftist organizations to attack conservative groups such as Jihad Watch and ACT for America, bullying Paypal and other services to shut down their funding sources.”

 

Twitter’s “Trust and Safety Councli” [sic] has 12 liberals as members. Only one conservative.

 

And the “fact-checkers” that the companies, whose empire encompasses $3 trillion, use? All “anti-conservative,” the report says.

 

A strong commitment to transparency and fairness with a dedication to free speech likely is the only solution, the study notes.

 

The companies “must stop pretending” that disagreeing is the equivalent of “hate speech,” and the bias must be removed.

 

That means groups that routinely label core conservative values as “hate” need to be addressed.

 

“Tech companies can’t expect conservatives to trust a system that is so blatantly one-sided,” it said.

 

Included in the study was a quote from Niall Ferguson, Hoover Institute senior fellow: “Nothing has changed politics not only in the U.S., but worldwide more than the advent of companies like Facebook. Forty-five percent of Americans now get news from Facebook …. Mark Zuckerberg, who runs Facebook, has the power to tweak the algorithm that determines what gets into your news feed and my news feed. And that is an awesome power … because let’s face it Mark Zuckerberg’s politics are liberal politics. He has no desire to see 2016 happen again.”

 

The study, by Ashley Rae Goldenberg and Dan Gainor, documents, “The problem starts deep inside the liberal corporate cultures of the companies. Eric Schmidt recently stepped down as head of both Google and Youtube. While still in that role, he aided the Hillary Clinton campaign. … Zuckerberg has been a strong proponent of the Dream Act and LGBT issues.”

 

Then their employees reflect those biases.

 

Facebook workers donated 99 times more to Hillary Clinton than President Trump. For Google, it was 63 times.

 

A survey showed 89 percent of very conservative, 74 percent of conservative and 69 percent of libertarian workers are “hesitant of being themselves while at work for fear they might lose their jobs.”

 

Sen. Ted Cruz, the study notes, warned just weeks ago that if the companies are a neutral public forum, they cannot allow censorship. If they are not a neutral public forum, “the entire predicate for immunity under CDA (Community Decency A[c]t) is claiming to be a neutral public forum, so you can’t have it both ways.’

As you know, WND.com is one of the world’s largest and most successful independent, English-language news websites, with an estimated 6 million readers.

 

But what you might not know is that it very difficult for a news website to make money on the Internet. Many content sites – including some large, high-profile ones – have gone out of business.

Are you Falsely Accused of Inexplicable/Illogical Fear?


John R. Houk

© April 17, 2018

 

It’s time to address phobias – again. Here is the Merriam-Webster definition of phobia:

 

an exaggerated usually inexplicable and illogical fear of a particular object, class of objects, or situation

Apparently, i.e. listening to the Left, Social Conservatives, Conservatives understanding Islamic revered writings and Counterjihadists all over the political spectrum are peopled filled with “inexplicable and illogical fear.”

 

People that believe the Word of God (i.e. the Holy Bible) and condemn the homosexual lifestyle because God calls the practice an abomination in the Old Testament and deserving death unless the homosexual lifestyle is repented by looking up to Jesus the Redeemer in the New Testament are vilified as homophobes. The problem I have with the epithet “homophobe,” is that Biblical Christians DO NOT have an inexplicable and illogical fear of those who practice a homosexual lifestyle.

 

Rather the view of a Biblical Christian is lining up with God in loathing the practice which as an unrepentant action separates one from the Presence of God. Incidentally, a spiritual state restored by believing in the price paid in death of Jesus Christ and enabling eternal life in the Presence of God participating by faith in the Resurrection to glorified Life by the man-God (both natures in one) Jesus Christ.

 

Christians (AND any non-Christian not a Muslim) must understand the revered writings of Islam deal in exacting death to anyone who does not submit to the authority of Islam. This especially the case in a region where Islam is the basis for the rule of law. In non-Muslim dominated areas, the Muslim is entreated to tolerate the inferior infidels until such a time Islam is the dominant theo-political reality.

 

It is at this point that a Leftist and Muslim apologist will scream my assertion is a lie and thus I must be a racist hater Islamophobe (expressing hatred out of an “inexplicable and illogical fear” of all things Islam).

 

Let me be clear! As a Christian I have zero fear of Muslims or of the theo-political ideology of Islam. Rather I loath the doctrine because in its essence the theo-political Islamic revered writings promote all things that separate humanity from God by denying the death, burial and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. FURTHMORE, Islamic revered writings deny that God Almighty emptied His Divine prerogatives to be born a human to be the perfect sinless man enabling His life to be the price that Redeems humanity from the inherited fallen-sin nature bequeathed by the first man Adam who switched allegiance to Satan by disobeying God.

 

As opposed to the Truth of the Holy Bible I linked to above, Islamic revered writings deny it all claiming Muhammad’s lying words (or if Mo heard from a spiritual being, Muhammad’s gullible allegiance to a devil disguised as an angel of light) are superior to Holy Spirit (3rd Person of the ONE True God) inspired Holy Scripture.

 

Most egregious example – Quran 23: 91 – various translations:

 

Sahih International: Allah has not taken any son, nor has there ever been with Him any deity. [If there had been], then each deity would have taken what it created, and some of them would have sought to overcome others. Exalted is Allah above what they describe [concerning Him].

 

Yusuf Ali: No son did Allah beget, nor is there any god along with Him: (if there were many gods), behold, each god would have taken away what he had created, and some would have lorded it over others! Glory to Allah! (He is free) from the (sort of) things they attribute to Him!

 

Muhammad Sarwar: God has never given birth to a son and there is no other god besides Him. If there were, each god would have taken away his creatures and claimed superiority over the others. God is too exalted to be as they believe Him to be.

 

Mohsin Khan: No son (or offspring or children) did Allah beget, nor is there any ilah (god) along with Him; (if there had been many gods), behold, each god would have taken away what he had created, and some would have tried to overcome others! Glorified be Allah above all that they attribute to Him!

 

This Quranic Surah is only a small example of Islam’s specific antipathy of the Christian faith.

 

More treatment of non-Muslims that decide submission is oppression at the hands of Muslims – Quran 9:12-14 (QuranBrowser.org – under Yusuf Ali):

 

9:12

But if they violate their oaths after their covenant, and taunt you for your Faith,- fight ye the chiefs of Unfaith: for their oaths are nothing to them: that thus they may be restrained.

9:13

Will ye not fight people who violated their oaths, plotted to expel the Apostle, and took the aggressive by being the first (to assault) you? Do ye fear them? Nay, it is God Whom ye should more justly fear, if ye believe!

9:14

Fight them, and God will punish them by your hands, cover them with shame, help you (to victory) over them, heal the breasts of Believers,

 

Quran 9: 28-33 (QuranBrowser.org – under Shakir):

 

9:28

O you who believe! the idolaters are nothing but unclean, so they shall not approach the Sacred Mosque after this year; and if you fear poverty then Allah will enrich you out of His grace if He please; surely Allah is Knowing Wise.

9:29

Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Apostle have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection.

9:30

And the Jews say: Uzair is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away!

9:31

They have taken their doctors of law and their monks for lords besides Allah, and (also) the Messiah son of Marium and they were enjoined that they should serve one God only, there is no god but He; far from His glory be what they set up (with Him).

9:32

They desire to put out the light of Allah with their mouths, and Allah will not consent save to perfect His light, though the unbelievers are averse.

9:33

He it is Who sent His Apostle with guidance and the religion of truth, that He might cause it to prevail over all religions, though the polytheists may be averse.

 

The Quran, Hadith and Sira are full of this hatred and oppression at non-Muslims. Although the early suras instructed Muslims to respect the People of the Book (i.e. Jews and Christians) the later suras in date (NOT chronologically) reflects Mo’s disappointment in Jews and Christians rejecting Muhammad as a false prophet. Ergo, respect degenerated into oppression followed by destruction if there was any refusal to submit to allah as a convert or a subhuman existence. Sounds more like human emotional directives rather than divine prophecy.

 

The Word’s of Jesus in false prophets:

 

13 “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it.14 Because[a] narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.

 

15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. 16 You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles?17 Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Therefore by their fruits you will know them. – Matthew 7: 13-20 NKJV

 

And this God-Breathed Word found in 1 John:

 

2 18 Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the[a]Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour. 19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us.

 

1 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit that does not confess that[a] Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world. – 1 John 2: 18-19; 4: 1-3 NKJV

 

Do I have an inexplicable and illogical fear of Islam? NOPE!

 

I have a very explicable and logical loathing of Islam. The very tenets of Islam are aggressively antipathetical not only against Christians, but against ALL people who want nothing to do with the Islamic despotic totalitarian theo-political ideology.

 

You may wonder what motivated me to clarify my thoughts on how “phobia” is a sadly misused application to stalwart Biblical Christians. The motivation is derived from an email I received from Brigitte Gabriel of ACT for America expressing displeasure with Senator Cory Booker’s grilling of Mike Pompeo during the Senate nomination hearing for becoming Secretary of State. In the course of the grilling Booker equated Brigitte Gabriel and Pompeo as Islamophobes.

 

In response to Booker’s grilling, Gabriel penned a response explaining her contempt for being wrongly called an Islamophobe.

 

Just as a side thought. Gabriel is in the camp that only Radical Muslims need be exposed. That is a fair point as an American supporting the 1st Amendment of Religious Freedom.

 

Unfortunately, Gabriel and others in her camp are failing to see the big picture pertaining to Islam and the theo-political religion’s history of overt conquest and stealth eradication of cultures and faiths that are contrary to Islamic tenets. The more accepted Islamic tenets are become, the greater the potential that Islamic domination occurs ending the very Constitutional Rights guaranteed as inalienable.

 

With that minor divergence of thought between and Brigitte Gabriel, below is here Townhall article written on 4/14/18.

 

Here is the email intro from Brigitte Gabriel dated 4/16/2018 11:30 AM:

 

Dear John, 

 

Last week, during the Secretary of State Nomination Hearings, Senator Cory Booker decided to use his time as a way to advance his own political career. I lived in an 8×10 bomb shelter for almost a decade because of Islamic terrorism. Yet, Cory Booker and the fake news media had the audacity to call me an Islamophobe and a Hate Monger on the Senate floor.

 

These shameful, baseless lies will not slow me down. As someone who has lived through terrorism, and experienced it firsthand – I will not be silenced by these leftist scare tactics. Over the weekend I published an op-ed on Townhall.com to give my perspective on what happened.

Thank you for support. I hope you enjoy my article!

 

Un-apologetically Patriotic,

Brigitte Gabriel

Pompeo and I Are Not Hate Mongers

Cory Booker – sourpuss

 

Senators grilling CIA Director and Secretary of State nominee Mike Pompeo threw out a number of charged words in an attempt to taint his reputation. Senator Cory Booker used words like “anti-Islam,” “Islamaphobe,” and the other absurd and completely unfounded clichés to describe myself, my organization, ACT for America, and anyone else whose beliefs do not conform to their politically correct fantasyland that have worked with patriots like Mr. Pompeo to expose terrorist activities both within the United States and abroad.

 

For the last fifteen years I’ve been traveling the world, exercising freedom of speech, as is my human right, in an effort to educate others about the threat of terrorism and radical Islam. I expose the truth behind a warped ideology that legitimizes decapitation, stonings, rape, domestic violence, female genital mutilation, and a number of other abhorrent human rights atrocities. All of these appalling acts are frequent in one particular part of the world, the Islamic world. Radical Islamists will openly cry out “Allahu Akhbar,” before committing a terrorist attack, or any of the other human rights violations aforementioned, as if their God would be pleased with their barbaric actions. I’ve got news for these politically correct senators trying to score cheap political points by slandering both myself, and patriotic officials like Mr. Pompeo; this is not a partisan issue, it’s a human issue.

 

But the fact that I’ve dared to call out these terrorists, and spoke the truth about the roots of their radical rage, has placed me, and those who associate with me, in the crosshairs of political smear merchants. Cliché accusations of “Islamophobia” thrown at myself and my organization, still seem to be the only defense for far-left frauds.

 

The term “hate group,” is another term the radical left has used to attempt to delegitimize others. The definition of this term includes “intolerance or aversion for” the object of the phobia. Am I intolerant of mass murder, justified and glorified in the name of Allah? Yes. Do I have an aversion to subway and train bombings?  Yes. Do any of these locations ring a bell? Fort Hood, Texas (Nidal Hasan – NOV, 2009); the Boston Marathon bombing (APR, 2013); Charlie Hebdo massacre, Paris (JAN, 2015); the multiple restaurant and Bataclan concert massacres, Paris (NOV, 2015); the San Bernardino Christmas Party massacre (DEC, 2015); the Brussels simultaneous airport and subway attacks (MAR, 2016); the Pulse Nightclub massacre, Orlando, FL (JUN, 2016) ; Nice, France, Bastille Day truck massacre (JUL, 2016). They are all places where horrendous terrorist atrocities were committed by radical Islamists, with scores of civilian fatalities and hundreds maimed.

 

Senator, if my intolerance of mass murder and my aversion to human rights atrocities makes me an “Islamophobe,” then I submit that I, and everyone else with any common sense or moral compass, would fall into this category.

 

I am not, however, fearful of moderate, Western loving Muslims, and consequently, I’ve worked with them, and continue to do so.  Most Muslims are as concerned as I am about the radicalized element of Islam, and how terrorists all over the world are perverting their hope of living in peace.  ACT for America has more than a million members from all walks of life. We work with moderate Muslims, members of the LGBTQ+ community, Republicans, Democrats, and anyone willing to stand for what is right in the face of evil, and the enabling of it by the regressive left.

 

We defend the defenseless, those who have been terrorized for being “infidels.”  Our organization works to protect women, children, homosexuals, and anyone else endangered by the radical elements that threaten their very dignity and existence in the name of their religion.

 

As for the moniker, “hate group,” let’s be clear, there is nothing hateful about patriotism. There is nothing hateful about defending the defenseless. There is nothing about opposing hatred, only enabling it the way that an appalling number of senators on Capitol Hill, in conjunction with the media, and anti-American political organizations do so continuously.

 

For years, true hate enablers, like the outrageously biased Southern Poverty Law Center, have recklessly labeled dozens of mainstream conservative organizations as “hate groups,” which has led to violent and dangerous attacks on such organizations. In fact, the SPLC has been named in court as the cause of an act of domestic terrorism, when one of their loyal followers, who soaked up their dangerous propaganda like a sponge, shot up the Family Research Council headquarters in Washington, D.C. Yet, the mainstream media still uses this disgraced organization as a neutral arbiter of hate?  On what authority do they make these proclamations?

 

Another group which frequently traffics in false accusations such as “hate group” is the Council on American Islamic Relations. CAIR is an organization whose spokespersons have been linked to terrorist groups Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, and who have been designated as a terrorist organization in Islamic countries such as the United Arab Emirates, which itself abides by Islamic law. Let me guess, the United Arab Emirates is also “Islamophobic?”

 

Apparently, a Muslim brotherhood front-group like CAIR can throw out accusations such as “hate group,” but accurately calling them a terrorist organization, and stating facts about their leadership and members is a bridge too far. Give me a break.

 

This week, in an ironic twist, the American Defamation League sent a letter to senators, yet again making this false claim about myself, and ACT for America. These days, I suppose facts are considered the new hate speech. Should anyone be surprised? The only ammunition these anti-free speech bullies have is to cry bigotry whenever facts contradict their feelings. I’ve been defamed many times over the years, and had my life and that of my family’s threatened, with public figures like the media’s favorite jihadist Linda Sarsour calling for the mutilation of my, and FGM survivor Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s, body.

 

We’re living in a dangerous time more akin to the Twilight Zone than reality. A time when the aggresors are the victims, and opposition to hate is considered hateful.

 

For the record, ACT for America is a grassroots national security grassroots advocacy organization focused on protecting our nation’s security, western democratic values, and basic human rights. ACT for America has never, and will never, tolerate any bias, discrimination, or violence against anyone, based on their religion, gender, race, or political persuasion.

 

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again-political correctness must die so that freedom and truth can live.

Examine Fatouros Deep State Posts


John R. Houk, Blog Editor

© April 16, 2018

I found two posts from  Dee Fatouros on her blog The Realistic Observer which were actually cross posts themselves. Typically, I shy away from cross posting Fatouros blogs because she promotes in many of the same circles that I run in. I gotta tell ya, the info on these posts are extremely relevant yet you will not hear the details on the Leftist Mainstream Media (MSM). If you hear or read it, the actual data will be twisted, informers vilified and/or issue downright lies exonerating the Deep State actors.

 

Here’s the thing, the data presented on the two posts are actually sourced from actual entities rather than the infamous “anonymous source”. The most relevant source being the Inspector General’s (IG) very recently released report examining probable criminality in the DOJ and FBI from Obamanites before and after the election of President Trump. This report centers on Andrew McCabe nefarious activities and is entitled, “A Report of Investigation of Certain Allegations Relating to Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe”. Here’s a link to a Fox News upload of the report to Scribd.

 

Fatouros’ cross posts are from (in order of date) DC Whispers and The Last Refuge. I’m using The Realistic Observer version in my cross post because that is how I discovered them.

 

The Last Refuge post links to a Youtube video that is recommended to go viral because of the important info therein. I liked the roughly 15-minute video so much that I am sharing the actual video on my blog. Mysteriously to me, the audio unceremoniously terminates as if there was more to be said roughly two-minutes before the end of the full length.

IG Report Outlines How Obama DOJ Worked To Shut Down Investigation Into Clinton Crime Syndicate 
Posted on April 14, 2018

 

Lost in the haze of the Syria bombing, the Establishment Media’s purposeful ignorance, and the ongoing ripples following the stunning FBI raid on the offices of President Trump’s longtime attorney, is the scathing outline by the Inspector General regarding how the Obama Department of Justice aggressively shut down what was to be a widespread investigation into the Clinton Foundation looking into allegations of widespread financial crimes.

Talk about obstruction of justice!

Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitten [sic] caught the Clinton Foundation information within the IG report and is doing his best to get the word out even as the Establishment Media covers the eyes and ears of the American public in order to keep that information largely unknown:

 

 

There were rank and file FBI agents said to be increasingly frustrated that their efforts to investigate the Clinton Crime Syndicate were being halted at every turn. This move to insulate the Clintons (and likely the Obama White House) from damage was overseen at the highest levels of the FBI and Obama DOJ. These same high-level Deep State figures are the very same ones who have been orchestrating the ongoing attacks against President Trump – attacks that likely continue to be orchestrated by the Obama/Jarett Machine with input from the Clintons. (Like what took place during the secret tarmac meeting between then Obama AG Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton. Top officials at the FBI refuse to hand over documents regarding that meeting due to their being “highly classified” even though both Lynch and Clinton claim they just talked about the weather and their grandkids.)

The Deep State continues to believe it controls the narrative. It’s up to all of you to prove them wrong.

Comey & McCabe-Left, Lynch-Center & Crooked Hillary & Obama-Right

 

There is no honor among thieves trying to cover their own posteriors. The following article contains many links and gives a very detailed inside view of the DOJ and FBI machinations prior to the 2016 election. 

 

Trail of James Comey’s Dirt on Loretta Lynch Discovered Within IG Report on Andrew McCabe…
Posted on April 15, 2018 by sundance [The Last Refuge]

 

A very interesting development is unfolding as a result of internet researcher TracyBeanz [Twitter HERE – YouTube HERE] and some insightful dot connecting by those following.

The outline begins via a relatively under-reported accusation about former Attorney General Loretta Lynch by former FBI Director James Comey in his upcoming book.

According to ABC News Comey writes in “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership,” that he became the public face of the investigation partly because of a mysterious development which he felt could cast “serious doubt” on Lynch’s independence.

“Had it become public, the unverified material would undoubtedly have been used by political opponents to cast serious doubt on the attorney general’s independence in connection with the Clinton investigation,” Comey writes, according to ABC. He calls the material a “development still unknown to the American public to this day.” (ABC Link)

It seems rather odd for James Comey to be making such an accusation against Loretta Lynch in the book. Why add that aspect? ..and why do so without expanding the details?

Well, keep in mind, that at the time the book was written, Mr. Comey had no idea exactly where the ongoing Inspector General investigation might lead; nor did he know the timing of release. Hence, the notation without expanded citation is likely explained.

However, with part of the OIG report released, within the Andrew McCabe background there’s a trail of evidence to the AG involvement James Comey was eluding toward.

On page six of the IG report (point number 4) we find a conference call between Loretta Lynch, Andrew McCabe and the FBI field office in New York where the subject of the Weiner/Abedin/Clinton laptop findings overlap with: the Clinton Foundation (CF) investigation; the Clinton Email investigation; pressure for Asst. Director McCabe to recuse himself, and Washington DC via Loretta Lynch using DOJ Main Justice leverage from the Eric Garner case against the NY FBI office and New York Police Department.

From the OIG report:

4. The Attorney General Expresses Strong Concerns to McCabe and other FBI Officials about Leaks, and McCabe Discusses Recusing Himself from CF Investigation (October 26)

McCabe told the OIG that during the October 2016 time frame, it was his “perception that there was a lot of information coming out of likely the [FBI’s] New York Field Office” that was ending up in the news. McCabe told the OIG that he “had some heated back-and-forths” with the New York Assistant Director in Charge (“NY-ADIC”) over the issue of media leaks.

On October 26, 2016, McCabe and NY-ADIC participated in what McCabe described as “a hastily convened conference call with the Attorney General who delivered the same message to us” about leaks, with specific focus being on leaks regarding the high-profile investigation by FBI’s New York Field Office into the death of Eric Garner. McCabe told us that he “never heard her use more forceful language.” NY-ADIC confirmed that the participants got “ripped by the AG on leaks.”

According to NY-ADIC’s testimony and an e-mail he sent to himself on October 31, McCabe indicated to NY-ADIC and a then-FBI Executive Assistant Director (“EAD”) in a conversation after Attorney General Lynch disconnected from the call that McCabe was recusing himself from the CF Investigation.

(Page #6 and #7 – IG Report Link)

What makes this explosive is the timing and how reporting in 2016 was explaining this specific call and the outcome therein.

On September 28th, 2016, Andrew McCabe was made aware of information the New York Police Department and FBI has obtained from a captured laptop belonging to Huma Abedin and Anthony Weiner. The laptop was evidence in the Weiner “sexting” case involving a minor; however, the laptop also contained thousands of State Department documents from Hillary Clinton and her aide Huma Abedin, Weiner’s wife.

Some of the extracted laptop evidence was turned over to the DOJ Southern District of New York (SDNY) where Preet Bharara, a Clinton-Lynch ally, is United States Attorney.

Text messages between FBI Agent Peter Strzok (Inbox) and FBI Special Counsel to Andrew McCabe, Lisa Page (Outbox):

 

Page-Strzok Texts – NYPD

 

[The letter to “Congress” at the end of the text exchange relates to notification of the re-opening of the Clinton investigation – Actual date of notification 10/28/16]

According to later reporting, FBI Director James Comey was not notified of the laptop issues for two to three weeks, after 9/28/16. However, in late October and early November, there were reports from people with contacts in New York police and FBI, about Washington DOJ officials interfering with the Weiner laptop investigation.

On the same date (October 26th, 2016) as the Lynch, McCabe and NY FBI phone call, former NY Mayor Rudy Giuilani [sic] was telling Fox News that an explosive development was forthcoming. Two days later, October 28th, 2016, Congress was notified of the additional Clinton emails.

However, a few more days later, November 4th, 2016, an even more explosive development as Erik Prince appeared on radio and outlined discoveries within the Huma Abedin/Anthony Weiner laptop that was being blocked by AG Lynch.

Prince claimed he had insider knowledge of the investigation that could help explain why FBI Director James Comey had to announce he was reopening the investigation into Clinton’s email server last week.

“Because of Weinergate and the sexting scandal, the NYPD started investigating it. Through a subpoena, through a warrant, they searched his laptop, and sure enough, found those 650,000 emails. They found way more stuff than just more information pertaining to the inappropriate sexting the guy was doing,” Prince claimed.

“They found State Department emails. They found a lot of other really damning criminal information, including money laundering, including the fact that Hillary went to this sex island with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. Bill Clinton went there more than 20 times. Hillary Clinton went there at least six times,” he said

“The amount of garbage that they found in these emails, of criminal activity by Hillary, by her immediate circle, and even by other Democratic members of Congress was so disgusting they gave it to the FBI, and they said, ‘We’re going to go public with this if you don’t reopen the investigation and you don’t do the right thing with timely indictments,’” Prince explained.

“I believe – I know, and this is from a very well-placed source of mine at 1PP, One Police Plaza in New York – the NYPD wanted to do a press conference announcing the warrants and the additional arrests they were making in this investigation, and they’ve gotten huge pushback, to the point of coercion, from the Justice Department, with the Justice Department threatening to charge someone that had been unrelated in the accidental heart attack death of Eric Garner almost two years ago. That’s the level of pushback the Obama Justice Department is doing against actually seeking justice in the email and other related criminal matters,” Prince said. (Link)

An earlier Grand Jury in New York had refused to return an indictment against the police in the Garner case. As an outcome of that grand jury finding, and as an outcome of their own investigation, the local FBI office and Eastern District of New York DOJ office was not trying to pursue criminal charges against the NYPD officers involved. This created a dispute because federal prosecutors and FBI officials in New York opposed bringing charges, while prosecutors with the Civil Rights Division at the Justice Department in Washington argued there was clear evidence to do so.

On October 25th, 2016, Loretta Lynch replaced the New York prosecutors:

New York Times (Oct. 25) – The Justice Department has replaced the New York team of agents and lawyers investigating the death of Eric Garner, officials said, a highly unusual shake-up that could jump-start the long-stalled case and put the government back on track to seek criminal charges.

With that move on Oct. 25th, 2016, AG Lynch was now in position to threaten criminal prosecutions against the NYPD, and repercussions against the NY FBI and EDNY using the Garner case as leverage, just like Erik Prince outlined in the phone interview above.

Additionally, we see confirmation from the IG report, the Garner case was brought up in the next day (Oct 26, 2016) phone call to the NY FBI field office; just as Erik Prince outlined. Obviously Prince’s sources were close to the events as they unfolded.

The NY FBI and Eastern District of New York (EDNY) were threatened by Washington DC Main Justice and FBI, via Loretta Lynch and Andrew McCabe to drop the Clinton/Abedin/Weiner laptop investigation matters, or else the Garner DOJ Civil Rights Division would be used as leverage against the NYPD. And Loretta Lynch had SDNY U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara as the enforcer waiting for her call.

And so it was…

“Had it become public, the unverified material would undoubtedly have been used by political opponents to cast serious doubt on the attorney general’s independence in connection with the Clinton investigation,” Comey writes, according to ABC. He calls the material a “development still unknown to the American public to this day.” (ABC Link)

 

Comey & Lynch wearing Clinton-Kaine campaign shirts

 

Additionally, this excerpt from the Comey book is laughable:

“I never heard anyone on our team — not one — take a position that seemed driven by their personal political motivations. And more than that: I never heard an argument or observation I thought came from a political bias. Never,” Comey writes in his book. “Instead we debated, argued, listened, reflected, agonized, played devil’s advocate, and even found opportunities to laugh as we hashed out major decisions.” (LINK)

— Tracybeanz (@tracybeanz) April 15, 2018

Lastly, I cannot help but be reminded of a post-election event where an FBI official from the same NY field office had her vehicle broken into and a laptop stolen which included “National Security information”. Everything was recovered, except the laptop.

Um, hey everyone, the Eric Garner case was handled by the EDNY. I was in the SDNY. Nice try @Barnes_Law https://t.co/3niXJHRbke 

— Preet Bharara (@PreetBharara) April 15, 2018

@PreetBharara I don’t think you are looking at this right. AG Lynch was threatening to take the case and give it to you. YOU were the threat Lynch was using against the EDNY [who she (and McCabe) saw as a risk]. So what does that say about you? https://t.co/IFbZSbNZNJ

Intro to ‘An Unethical Nightmare’


Intro by John R. Houk, Editor

Original post by Justin O. Smith

Posted April 14, 2018

I realize the news cycle today will focus on the U.S. military strike against locations believed to be chemical weapons development centers. The wicked Dems have even suggested that an attack on Syria is a smokescreen to obstruct Robert Mueller’s witch hunt against President Trump.

 

In reality, if there is any distraction in obstructing justice, it is the Deep State corruption beginning to unravel. The December 9 FBI raid of Trump’s former personal lawyer Michael Cohen at his home, office and hotel is an unrepentant attempt to keep the Deep State conspiracy against the President from unraveling.

 

At first many believed Mueller directed the raid to occur. But to avoid the appearance of conflict, Mueller turned over some info on Cohen financial practices to the DOJ that resulted in some judge certifying a search warrant against Cohen.

 

As far as I know to date, the actual reason has not been disclosed to the public. The guess is Cohen allegedly may have tried to cover any financial tracks leading to himself by manipulating how a payoff to porn star Stephanie Clifford (stage name Stormy Daniels) had occurred. Apparently, the payoff and confidentiality contract were legal, but the “how” may have been accomplished illegally.

 

The concern is the FBI search warrant execution may have resulted in attorney-client privilege between President Trump and Michael Cohen unrelated to any Cohen financial impropriety probably will be violated. My concern and your concern should be the Deep State FBI-DOJ Trump-haters will manipulate the attained search warrant data to be used against the President. AND if you think no such manipulation is capable by the FBI, you should think of Obama’s cadres of unmaskers, leakers and liars were unleashed on candidate and President-Elect Trump which includes Crooked Hillary paying for the highly discredited Steele Dossier.

An Unethical Nightmare

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 4/12/2018 10:19 PM

 

The rule of law and President Donald Trump came under one more withering attack on April 9th 2018, through the FBI and Department of Justice raid on the office of Michael Cohen, the President’s personal lawyer, and under Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s initiative and direction, as he stepped outside the purview mandated for the “Russia collusion” investigation, in an attempt to find any wrongdoing by the President. This attack is largely political revenge and a fishing expedition designed to unseat President Trump and keep some very real criminals out of prison, like Mueller himself, and Hillary Clinton.

 

The Justice Department issued a warrant for the FBI to search for evidence surrounding a $130,000 dollar payment from Cohen to pornography actress Stephanie Clifford, aka Stormy Daniels, who allegedly had an affair with Pres. Trump in 2006. Cohen has repeatedly stated that the President had no knowledge of the payment, intended to buy Daniel’s silence.

 

Many problems with this investigation exist, and Mueller and his team appear to be desperate to find wrong doing and a crime committed by the President, in a manner no better than Good Ol’ Stalin who was often quoted as having said “show me the man and I’ll show you the crime”. In a year’s time, Mueller has yet to find any Russian collusion by President Trump.

 

Also, according to world renown lawyer and author, Alan Dershowitz, this recent action violated President Trump’s attorney-client privilege and his 4th and 6th Amendment Rights, which prohibit the government from intruding on the privacy of attorney-client rights of citizens. These FBI agents and prosecutors have no right to view confidential materials between a client and their lawyer, and this alone constitutes a core violation of both Cohen’s and the President’s rights, even if the government never uses the confiscated material.

 

If anyone should lose their job and be prosecuted, it should be Mueller for obscuring the fact that Hillary Clinton authorized Russia to receive 25% of the United States’ total uranium resources, through a corrupt Uranium One deal, for a payment to the Clinton Foundation of $145 million dollars, when Mueller was the FBI Director. This deal allowed Russia to eventually gain majority control of those resources. And so, Hillary too should be in prison for treason.

 

Weren’t the Russians just as dangerous when Mueller headed the FBI?

 

Where is Mueller’s investigation into the false Steele Dossier, Glenn Simpson and Fusion GPS and the Hillary Clinton campaign? Each used Russian sources to leak unproven rumors and smears against Donald Trump in an attempt to ensure his defeat in 2016.

 

Where are the investigations and prosecutions of James Clapper, John Brennan, Susan Rice, Samantha Power and others for unmasking innocent Americans caught in surveillance and illegally leaking their names to the media? Where is the prosecution of Comey and McCabe for leaking information on their investigations of the 2016 campaign and lying about it to investigators?

 

Equally corrupt, the Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is the same man who allowed an illegally presented FISA warrant to be used against then candidate Trump and who appointed Mueller Special Counsel; subsequently, Mueller hired 17 political hit-men, nine of whom are Clinton donors and the remainder being Clinton supporters, with the exception of one. Rosenstein personally signed off on Monday’s warrant and the FBI’s decision to raid Cohen’s office.

 

Dershowitz recently told Fox News: “If this were Hillary Clinton [having her lawyer’s office raided] the ACLU would be on every TV station in America jumping up and down. The deafening silence of the ACLU and civil libertarians about the intrusion into lawyer-client confidentiality is really appalling.”

 

The double standard is all too evident, since it is common knowledge now that Obama’s politicized FBI and DOJ protected Hillary Clinton, after revelations she was using a private computer server to transmit classified top secret information to unauthorized personnel, and they allowed her to delete 33,000 documents from her server during the following three weeks. The FBI and DOJ also allowed Cheryl Mills, Clinton’s personal lawyer, to invoke attorney-client privilege to prevent the FBI from further investigating Hillary Clinton’s email scheme, even though Mills too was under investigation at the time. Mills even stormed out of a meeting with the FBI in May of 2016, because a question supposedly breached that privilege.

 

As Andrew McCarthy of the National Review observed: “It was astonishing that the Justice Department indulged [Mills’] attorney-client privilege claim, which frustrated the FBI’s ability to question her … But it is simply unbelievable to find her turning up at Mrs. Clinton’s interview [and] participating in the capacity of a lawyer under circumstances where Clinton was being investigated over matters in which Mills participated as a non-lawyer government official.”

 

It may seem counter-intuitive, but the President must fire Mueller and Rosenstein and damn the consequences, while at the same time, he must demand that a judge require all of the seized documents to be reviewed by a court in order to determine which are relevant to any investigation and which violate attorney-client privilege. The President has the right and the authority to fire Robert Mueller for exceeding his original mandate, and by defending his own rights under the Constitution, he ultimately defends and protects individual Americans against an increasingly intrusive federal government.

 

In the meantime, one must assume that Mueller’s hit team, without any morals and unrestrained, will continue to lie, cheat, perjure themselves and mislead the American people, if that’s what it takes to secure Trump’s impeachment, and possibly a criminal conviction, in their attempt to overturn the results of the 2016 election. It is left to us — Conservative America — to see through the lies and hit back harder and more determined by telling Congress, in no uncertain terms, that they had better throw their full support behind the President or look for another job

 

President Trump has committed no crime, but he remains the target of the Mueller inquisition and an unethical nightmare of a frame-job against him, all in the name of maintaining the elitist Establishment status quo and securing their unchallenged lock on the reins of power.  And it must be stopped — the lies and attempts to manufacture crimes — before it does more irreparable damage to our Republic and moves the nation closer to all out civil conflict, because this is not justice. It is a continued coup from within our own government.

Dr. Shaw Promotes Valuable D.C. Counterjihad Conference


Dr. Leslie Shaw, PhD

 

John R. Houk

© April 12, 2018

 

I received an unsolicited email from a Dr. Leslie Shaw, an Associate Professor teaching at the Paris campus of ESCP Europe (acronym for: École supérieure de commerce de Paris). This Is a business college located at various metropolitan cities across Europe.

 

I’m not sure how Dr. Shaw discovered me, but I’d like to believe it was one of the three blogs I post at. The nature of the email was to inform the date of a Counterjihad Conference to be held at Washington DC. The Conference stand is “to break the taboo and tackle head-on the campaign being waged by political Islam to make Western business Sharia-compliant.” The Conference is sponsored by the Forum on Islamic Radicalism and Management (FIRM).

Dr. Shaw’s email is actually a forward from him to FIRM Europe (and probably other recipients not listed) on 3/28/18. Here is the forwarded portion of the email sent to me by Dr. Shaw:

 

Ladies and Gentlemen,

 

On Thursday 26 April 2018 Forum on Islamic Radicalism and Management is hosting a conference at the US Capitol to break the taboo and tackle head-on the campaign being waged by political Islam to make Western business Sharia-compliant.

 

In France corporates are gradually overcoming a reluctance to discuss this issue out of fear of accusations of Islamophobia but in the USA the core value of religious freedom is being used by Islamists as an instrument to stifle debate.

 

The conference will include speakers from France, the UK, Belgium, Hungary and Israel as well as from the USA.

 

Admission is free. Participants may make a donation towards the cost of organizing this event, the goals of which are to raise awareness of and explore ways to combat the encroachment of political Islam in the corporate sector.

The first conference in the U.S. on the subject of Political Islam in the Workplace will take place in Washington, D.C. on April 26, 2018  The event is co-sponsored by Forum on Islamic Radicalism and Management (FIRM), London Center for Policy Research and American Foundation for Democracy. Clarion Project spoke to event co-ordinator Dr. Leslie Shaw of FIRM:

 

Clarion: Back in 2016, CAIR described this planned conference as Islamophobic. Can you comment on that?

 

Leslie Shaw: CAIR’s opinion is driven by sectarian self-interest and promotion of a socio-political agenda.

 

Clarion: But the conference focuses only on Islamic and not other forms of radicalism.

 

Shaw: We are looking at one segment of a wide phenomenon. Other forms of radicalism exist — Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, left-wing, right-wing, animal rights activists, anti-globalists, eco-warriors, neo-luddites — but Islamic radicalism poses a greater threat than all of the others put together.

 

Clarion: Why political Islam in the workplace specifically?

 

Shaw: There is a plethora of conferences on the subject of radicalism in general and Islamic radicalism in particular, but they are usually restricted to specialists in certain areas. I attended a conference in Brussels on April 22 on the challenge of jihadist radicalization in Europe. There were over 250 people there and over 20 speakers but not one person from the business world. We want to open the subject up to corporations, because they are in the front line.

 

Clarion: Can you explain how?

 

Shaw: Corporations are soft targets for terrorist attacks, but aside from the threat of violence, they are also easy prey for Islamists deploying nonviolent tactics in pursuit of their goals.

 

Islamist employees may not end up committing acts of terrorism, but their behavior is certain to generate significant workplace conflict that undermines productivity and workforce cohesion. A recent survey of over 1,000 French managers revealed that 65% had to handle faith-based problems on an occasional or regular basis, ranging from absenteeism through collective praying to refusal to work with a female colleague.

 

So, in addition, to the security dimension, it is also an issue for human resources. In France, for example, Islamic radicalism is a growing phenomenon among employees in the City of Paris, the Paris Airport Authority, the Paris Transit Authority and the public education sector. It is also a problem in private firms. The French government is currently seeking to partner with the private sector to deal with the threat.

 

You are getting the same thing in the USA with the explosion in lawsuits filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission against employers. These are more often than not instigated by CAIR.

 

Clarion: Isn’t that a legitimate Civil Rights Act Title VII issue?

 

Shaw: I think the spirit of Title VII has been perverted to further a political and ideological agenda. When an employer hires a worker, he is buying that person’s time. In a manufacturing plant operating with a lean production schedule, you can’t have a worker walking off the assembly line at times determined by a third party. When you take a job, you follow the employer’s rules.

 

Clarion: But not all demands for religious accommodation are radical.

 

Shaw: Our working definition of a radical is somebody whose determination to adhere to his principles or religion causes disruption in the workplace. A vegetarian should not apply for a job in a slaughterhouse and then file a Title VII complaint because it conflicts with his moral principles. A Muslim should not take a job in a brewery if it conflicts with his religion.

 

Clarion: Aren’t you concerned that such views could be branded as Islamophobic?

 

Shaw: The purpose of the conference is to debate these issues in an open forum. Any point of view can be countered by a rebuttal.

 

Clarion: You held a similar conference in Paris in November 2017. What was the response?

 

Shaw: Extremely positive. It was attended by senior executives from flagship European and U.S. corporations as well as delegates from the gendarmerie, national Police, military, intelligence, counter-terrorism and corporate security. People appreciated the fact that we tackled the subject in a direct manner.

 

Clarion: What differences do you see in the U.S. and European approach to the problem?

 

Shaw: In Europe, corporatations are gradually overcoming a reluctance to discuss these issues out of fear of accusations of Islamophobia, but in the USA the core value of religious freedom is being used by Islamists as an instrument to stifle debate.

 

Clarion: How can people access the survey you are conducting?

 

Shaw: The survey is not accessible to the public. It’s not an opinion poll. We are sending it directly to executives in various companies and sectors. If anybody wants to complete it, they can contact us at firm.europe@gmail.com. We vet them before sending the link to make sure they are bona fide corporate officers.

 

Clarion: How does one register for the conference?

 

Shaw: People can apply to attend by clicking here (our website https://firmeurope.com) All applicants will be vetted and we will send them instructions on how to register. The list of participants will be classified.

 

Clarion: What have you discovered while organizing this conference?

 

Shaw: Apart from analysts and the security community, people are scared of Islamic radicalism.  The academic and media establishment won’t touch it because of political correctness. Corporations are seeking help to mitigate the threat but behind closed doors. They won’t come out and discuss the issues in public. It is an Orwellian fear that plays into the hands of the global Muslim Brotherhood and its satellite organizations.

 

Clarion: Are you planning more conferences?

 

Shaw: Yes. The next one is on November 15, 2018 at the National Assembly, the French parliament. The conference will be a biannual event alternating between Paris and Washington.

 

Clarion: How will corporate attendees benefit from the conference?

 

Shaw: First, they will have the reassurance that they are not alone in facing the threat. Second, the conference will demonstrate that corporations can acquire tools to assess the risks, mitigate the threat, minimize the economic costs, vet personnel and potential hires, and shield themselves from litigation.

 

The business community has a right to openly, fearlessly and objectively discuss the real challenges posed by Islamic radicalism in the workplace and share their best practices and experience in dealing with it.

 

There is a lot of hysteria surrounding the subject of Islam, on both sides. We need to cast a real eye on what is going on and take steps to ensure that our socio-economic model and values remain intact.

 

Lawmakers have a key role to play in this process so that businesses are not at the mercy of religious pressure groups eager to hijack our freedoms for their own ends.

The Gaza Clashes: What’s Really Happening


There is one Constant Conservatives can rely on. Leftists lie and Arab pretenders calling themselves Palestinians lie. The proof in the pudding is every incident involving Israel and the lying pretenders is reported with twisted partial truth to no truth whatsoever.

The Gaza Clashes: What’s Really Happening

 

By DANIEL POMERANTZ 

 APRIL 9, 2018

HonestReporting

Since March 30, there have been intermittent protests, riots, and even armed attacks at the Gaza border.

 

Much of the media coverage has been so poorly informed or even outright misleading, that it can be almost impossible to understand what’s really happening. Israel has, in many cases, been made out to be a violent aggressor intentionally killing peaceful protesters.

 

Nothing could be farther from the truth.

 

That’s why HonestReporting will be actively monitoring, analyzing and communicating throughout these events.

 

Here, for your use and information, is what we’ve seen so far:

 

Re-cap of events

 

  • On April 1, we posted this explanation and analysis of the events up to that date. It was immediately clear that the “protests” also included molotov cocktails, burning tires, rock throwing, and in one case even live gunfire at the IDF.  There were ongoing attempts by rioters to breach the border fence and enter Israel.

 

  • Of the 30,000 Palestinians present, 16 were reportedly killed by IDF sniper fire. The figure later increased to 19.

 

  • It was well known since April 1 that at least ten of the casualties had clear affiliations to terror groups, including Hamas. An analysis of open-source information from Palestinian media brought that number up to 15, and HonestReporting was the first to publish that new information on April 5.

 

  • Another protest/riot on April 6 brought 20,000 people and new violence: including the burning of what may have been 10,000 tires, and further attempts to both attack IDF soldiers and to  infiltrate Israel under the resulting smokescreen. Meanwhile, and this is not a joke, Hamas is now blaming Israel for what it claims is a “shortage” of tires in Gaza. Seriously. You couldn’t make this stuff up if you tried.

 

Palestinian Protesters

 

  • A number of Palestinians criticized Hamas for publicizing the deaths of its members, including holding military funerals and rallies. The main objection can be summarized as follows: by revealing that so many of the deaths were actually terrorists, Hamas undermines the PR illusion that this was a “peaceful protest.”

 

 

International investigations?

In the meantime, numerous international parties, including UN Secretary General António Guterres and EU chief Federica Mogherini have begun calling for an international investigation into the actions of the IDF.  Whether Israel adequately investigates itself, and whether the allegations have sufficient gravity are likely to be the key issues in determining whether the International Criminal Court (ICC) prosecutes a case.

 

If the ICC does prosecute a case, Israel is not the only party under the microscope:  Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, Fatou Bensouda has noted that Hamas or other Palestinian bodies could be subject to investigations related to war crimes for their use of civilians in covering violent activities.

 

The UN and EU, on the other hand, are primarily political bodies and can choose to launch their own investigations merely if their members wish to: without any regard to standards of international law.

 

When the dust settles and the burning-tire-smoke clears, international investigations will likely be the big remaining question.

 

In the meantime, the IDF has already appointed Brig. Gen. Moti Baruch, head of the General Staff’s Doctrine and Training Division to lead the IDF’s own investigation.

 

The latest updates

 

Some of the critical facts and images from Friday’s flare-up have made the mainstream news, yet some of the most informative have remained conspicuously absent.

 

Take, for example, this image round-up by Israellycool’s Aussie Dave: including telling, often dramatic pictures of events, some of which have not been published by any international news source.

 

Another telling scene was captured in this photo of a swastika flying alongside Palestinian flags, with tire-smoke all around:

 

 

 

 

A few nay-sayers on Twitter tried to claim the image was photo-shopped, until they came face to face with this video of the same:

http://s22592.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/WhatsApp-Video-2018-04-06-at-21.41.40.mp4?_=1

And speaking of tire-smoke: in this particularly shameless tweet, the Palestine diplomatic office in the US preposterously claims that Hamas’s own tire-fire is actually an Israeli nerve agent.

 

 

Here is some additional video of tires and fires throughout the area.

 

Next time you hear about Palestinians throwing “stones,” keep in mind that in at least some cases, this is what they are really talking about:

 

 

Just outside Gaza, JPost’s Seth Frantzman caught up with Richard Kemp, former commander, British forces, Afghanistan. Kemp took the media to task pointing out that they don’t necessarily fully understand events even if they’re physically close up. Specifically, Kemp clarified that this is not a “peaceful demonstration” as is often portrayed by the media but rather:

 

…a deliberate and specific intent by a major terrorist organization, recognized around the world as terrorists, to penetrate the border of the State of Israel.

 

Arab world reacts

 

Though reactions are mixed, at least some residents of Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Jordan and other Arab countries, took to social media to lambaste Hamas for its exploitation of the inhabitants of Gaza. Meanwhile, despite a show of support at the official level, it seems Palestinians in the West Bank were largely apathetic to the events in Gaza. Notably, top Palestinian Authority cleric Mahmoud al-Habbash declared:

 

[Hamas is] sending Gazans to their deaths for good headlines… [is] trading in suffering and blood [and] no longer fools Palestinian people.

 

And though it’s not in the Arab world, as long as we’re talking reactions we should give credit where it’s due: Reuters was one of the few publications to ask Israelis living near Gaza what they think. Here’s one example:

 

“I’m sorry about what is happening there. I know the situation is very, very difficult,” Israeli farmer Daniel Rahamim said about economic hardship in Gaza, the Palestinian enclave ruled by Hamas, an Islamist group that advocates Israel’s destruction.

 

“But I don’t talk about a peace deal anymore. Maybe we can achieve a long-term ceasefire,” Rahimim, 63, said as he irrigated his crops. He said his 24-year-old daughter, still “traumatized by rockets” left the area after the demonstrations started.

 

Finally, if there was any doubt about the real point of these protests and riots, Hamas leader Yehya Al-Sinwar was crystal clear:

About HonestReporting

 

HonestReporting monitors the news for bias, inaccuracy, or other breach of journalistic standards in coverage of the Arab-Israeli conflict. It also facilitates accurate reporting for foreign journalists covering the region. HonestReporting is not aligned with any government or political party or movement.

 

HonestReporting believes that a fully informed public is essential to progress and understanding in conflict resolution. It is not enough to correct inaccurate reporting and expose breaches of journalistic ethics. HonestReporting, through its MediaCentral project, provides support services for journalists based in or visiting Israel, the Palestinian territories, and the region to insure the free flow of information.

 

HonestReporting’s work serves the public interest by fighting misinformation. At the same time, it provides agenda-free services to reporters, including translation services and access to news makers to enable them to provide a fuller picture of the situation. Honestreporting has over 140,000 subscribers and its MediaCentral project handles over 1,000 inquiries from journalists each year.

 

Our Guiding Principles

 

  1. We believe Israel is entitled to fair treatment by the world press according to the same standards applied to any other country.

 

  1. We believe that public opinion is significantly shaped by media coverage.

 

  1. We believe that biased coverage of Israel distorts the public’s understanding of Israel and its motives, creating an obstacle to a peaceful resolution to the Arab-Israeli conflict.

 

  1. We believe people have as much right to criticize Israel as any other state. However, when criticism turns to demonization or delegitimization, it is no longer legitimate criticism.

 

  1. We believe that the media must be transparent, relevant, accurate, balanced, and ethical. Journalists, editors and publishers must be held accountable for slanted coverage.

 

  1. We support the working definition of anti-Semitism as adopted by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance in May 2016. We note the fact that this definition stipulates that “Manifestations [of anti-Semitism] might include the targeting of the state of Israel, conceived as a Jewish collectivity.”
