PLO calls for terror against Trump’s deal: ‘Escalate the resistance and the struggle… in all its forms’


The inherent Jew-hatred is evident by Muslim Palestinians when their leaders call for violence EVEN before examining President Trump’s peace plan labeled The Deal of the Century. Not that even an examination would matter when a religion tells its adherents to hate anything refusing to bow to Islamic Supremacism.

PLO calls for terror against Trump’s deal: ‘Escalate the resistance and the struggle… in all its forms’

PLO calls for terror:

 

“Escalate the resistance and the struggle… in all its forms and manners”

 

  •  Fatah: “We will redeem you with our blood, #Palestine” 
  •  PA: “No” to Trump’s “deal of the century”

 

 

“#No_to_the_deal_of_the_century

 

In anticipation of the revelation of US President Trump’s Middle East peace plan – the so-called “deal of the century” – the PLO, the PA, and Fatah are emphasizing their rejection of the still unknown plan. They have also announced a “day of rage” on the day the plan is revealed, and called for “escalation of resistance” – a Palestinian euphemism for violence and terror.

 

Abbas’ Fatah Movement posted a photo of a Palestinian rock thrower in a call for violence accompanied by text implicitly encouraging Palestinians to seek death as martyrs for “Palestine”:

Similarly, the PLO urged Palestinians to “escalate the resistance and the struggle” against Israel “in all its forms and manners.” Terms like “all forms” and “all means” are ‎used by PA leaders to include the use of all types of violence, including deadly terror ‎against Israeli civilians such as stabbings and shootings, as well as throwing rocks and Molotov Cocktails:

 

“The [Palestinian] National Council (i.e., the legislative body of the PLO) again expressed its objection to every plan, project, deal, or attempt to harm the Palestinian people’s inalienable rights…  The National Council yesterday [Jan. 26, 2020] demanded that the PLO Executive Committee implement all of the National Council and [PLO] Central Council’s decisions – and foremost among them the decision determining that the transition period has ended with all of the political, security, and financial obligations in it towards the Israeli occupation – and also to take all the necessary steps to encourage and escalate the resistance and the struggle against the occupation in all its forms and manners.” (Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Jan. 27, 2020)

 

Palestinian groups also declared the day Trump announces his peace plan a “day of mass rage.” Palestinian Media Watch has documented that PA and Fatah leaders view “days of rage” as preludes to “intifadas” – campaigns of violence and terror.

 

The [Palestinian] National and Islamic Forces of the Ramallah and El-Bireh district have declared the date of the announcement of ‘the deal of disgrace’ as a day of mass rage in response to the American-Israeli aggression, on which the Palestinian people will say its piece in one voice: the deal will not pass, and our people is capable of thwarting it.” (Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Jan. 27, 2020)

 

The cartoon at the top above shows PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas holding his fingers up in a “V” for victory, but in place of his hand is the first word of the text: “No to the deal of the century.” (Official Fatah Facebook page, Jan. 23, 2020)

 

The PA presidency has also announced that “there is no discussion with the American administration, neither brief nor long,” and that its position is unwavering on “everything regarding the unacceptable deal of the century.” (Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Jan. 25, 2020)

Another Fatah post showed a tiny Trump facing a giant Palestinian rock thrower:

The following are additional posts against Trump’s peace plan posted by Fatah:

At the top of the poster is the Fatah logo that includes a grenade, crossed rifles, and the PA map of “Palestine” that presents all of Israel as “Palestine” together with the PA areas. Under the logo is written: “Palestinian National Liberation Movement ‘Fatah’ Mobilization and Organization Commission Information Office” (Official Fatah Facebook page, Jan. 26, 2020)

The following are longer excerpts of the texts cited above:

 

“The [Palestinian] National Council (i.e., the legislative body of the PLO) again expressed its objection to every plan, project, deal, or attempt to harm the Palestinian people’s inalienable rights…

In a statement, the National Council yesterday [Jan. 26, 2020] demanded that the PLO Executive Committee implement all of the National Council and [PLO] Central Council’s decisions – and foremost among them the decision determining that the transition period has ended with all of the political, security, and financial obligations in it towards the Israeli occupation – and also to take all the necessary steps to encourage and escalate the resistance and the struggle against the occupation in all its forms and manners (i.e., term used by Palestinians, which also refers to the use of violence and terror). This is in order to defend our people’s permanent rights, which [US President Donald] Trump’s administration and the occupation are attempting to eliminate through what is called ‘the deal of the century’ (i.e., refers to US President Donald Trump’s as yet unpublished Middle East peace plan, which he said he would reveal to Israeli leaders in late January 2020)…

The [Palestinian] National and Islamic Forces of the Ramallah and El-Bireh district have declared the date of the announcement of ‘the deal of disgrace’ as a day of mass rage in response to the American-Israeli aggression, on which the Palestinian people will say its piece in one voice: the deal will not pass, and our people is capable of thwarting it.” (Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Jan. 27, 2020)

 

Palestinian National and Islamic Forces – an unaffiliated coordinating body comprised of representatives from factions in the PLO and outside the PLO. The Palestinian National and Islamic Forces were established in 2000 shortly after the start of the PA terror campaign (the second Intifada, 2000-2005), under the authorization of Yasser Arafat and the leadership of terrorist Marwan Barghouti. During the PA terror campaign it played an active role in coordinating political efforts and terror attacks against Israel, but since the end of the campaign it has been less significant and its activity is primarily centered in Gaza.

 

Headline: “The Democratic National Coalition called to intensify the popular resistance”

The Palestinian Democratic National Coalition forces called to intensify the popular resistance (i.e., term used by Palestinians, which also refers to the use of violence and terror) in all of the Palestinian territories. The forces – which include the Palestinian Liberation Front (PLF, a terror organization and PLO member; see note below –Ed.), the Arab Liberation Front, the Palestinian Arab Front, and the Palestinian Popular Struggle Front (i.e., all PLO members) – discussed ways of intensifying the popular resistance against the settlement, after their meeting at the Popular Struggle Front’s headquarters in Ramallah…

The Democratic National Coalition forces called on the international community to pressure the extremist right-wing occupation government and [US President Donald] Trump’s administration, the occupation’s partner in its aggression against our people, to immediately stop the settlement and cease the attacks against the Palestinian national rights and sovereignty, in order to prevent pushing the region into a whirlpool of violence whose end will be bad and bitter.” (Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Jan. 24, 2020)

 

The terms “peaceful uprising/resistance,” and “popular uprising/resistance” are used by PA leaders at times to refer to peaceful protest and at times to refer to deadly terror attacks and terror waves. For example, ‎Mahmoud Abbas defined as “peaceful popular” the murderous terror during the 2015-2016 ‎terror wave (“The Knife Intifada”), in which 40 people were killed (36 Israelis, 1 Palestinian, 2 Americans and 1 Eritrean) and hundreds wounded in stabbings, shootings, and car ramming attacks. Abbas said: “We want peaceful popular uprising, and that’s what this is.” http://palwatch.org/main.aspx?fi=157&doc_id=16437

 

Palestinian Liberation Front (PLF) – A terror organization and member of the PLO. The PLF is headed by Secretary-General Wasel Abu Yusuf who is also a member of the PLO Executive Committee. The PLF has been responsible for numerous terror attacks, including the hijacking of an Italian cruise ship in 1985, in which one Jewish hostage in a wheelchair, Leon Klinghoffer, was shot, and then thrown overboard. The US has listed the PLF as a terror organization.

 

Headline: “The [PA] presidency: There is no discussion with the American administration regarding what is called ‘the deal of the century’”

“The Palestinian [PA] presidency emphasized yesterday [Jan. 24, 2020] that there is no discussion with the American administration, neither brief nor long. This was in response to American President Donald Trump’s statements, according to which ‘his administration spoke briefly with the Palestinians and we will speak with them again.’

The presidency again emphasized through its Spokesman [and PA Deputy Prime Minister] Nabil Abu Rudeina that the Palestinian position is clear and firm in its rejection of Trump’s decisions regarding Jerusalem (refers to his recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital; see note below –Ed.) and the rest of the issues, and everything regarding the unacceptable deal of the century (i.e., refers to US President Donald Trump’s as yet unpublished Middle East peace plan).” (Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Jan. 25, 2020)

 

Nabil Abu Rudeina also serves as PA Minister of Information, Fatah Commissioner of Information, Culture, and Ideology, and Fatah Central Committee member.

 

US recognition of Jerusalem as capital of Israel – On Dec. 6, 2017, US President Donald Trump formally recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Trump added that the final borders of Jerusalem will be determined during negotiations.

 

The US embassy was transferred from Tel Aviv and opened in Jerusalem on May 14, 2018, the anniversary of Israel’s declaration of independence in 1948 according to the Gregorian calendar.

If Bolton testifies, so should Schiff, the Bidens, the ‘whistleblower,’ and the fired Ukrainian prosecutor


It is apparent that John Bolton – a person whose hawkish views I once admired – is intent on stabbing President Trump in the back to the glee of coup-minded Dems and RINOs. I like the musing of Rick Manning the leader of Americans for Limited Government; viz., if Bolton is a witness the entire Pandora’s Box of witnesses that undoubtedly incriminates Dem crimes must also testify.

If Bolton testifies, so should Schiff, the Bidens, the ‘whistleblower,’ and the fired Ukrainian prosecutor

Americans for Limited Government

 

Jan. 27, 2020, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement regarding the leak of portions of John Bolton’s book:

 

“The leak of parts of John Bolton’s book out of the National Security Council is clearly designed to impact the impeachment trial. No matter what the book claims, the facts remain the same. The Ukrainian government had zero knowledge that the funds were being held until a story ran on August 28.  Senator Ron Johnson, who was meeting with the Ukrainians on September 1 along with Vice President Pence, called President Trump about what they should ask for in exchange for the aid being released, to which the President replied, ‘No way. I would never do that. Who told you that?’ And, that he would likely be happy with the decision that was made: ‘We’re reviewing it now, and you’ll probably like my final decision.’

 

“No matter what any witnesses say about the President’s internal thoughts or even complaints about the unfairness of a system that spent three years investigating him when he did nothing and closes its eyes to obvious abuses of power and corruption by the Clintons and Bidens, the bottom line fact is that the Ukrainians were never told by U.S. officials that aid was being withheld prior to the Politico story, and that the aid was released two weeks after the hold was reported, three weeks prior to the deadline.

 

“Facts matter.  The actions taken were perfectly legal and the impeachment continues to be nothing more than a continuation of the three-year coup against the duly-elected President of the United States.  And given the persistent leaks from the National Security Council staff, it is clear that the only people seeking to have an undue influence on the 2020 U.S. election are the Obama holdovers in the White House and their ongoing efforts to knee-cap President Trump.  The Senate needs to take the evidence that is being laid before them and acquit the President, rather than being buffeted by the same kind of campaign of disinformation that the nation endured throughout the Mueller investigation.  Dragging out this trial for any longer does a grievous disservice to our nation, as fairness would dictate that if witnesses are allowed to be called, then any and every witness the President wishes to bring forward should be allowed including the so-called whistleblower, Adam Schiff, the Schiff staff that colluded with the ‘whistleblower’, Clinton operatives who worked the Ukraine for cash, the Ukrainian prosecutors who investigated Biden corruption and the New York Times reporters who received the selective leaks of the Bolton book.  Let’s hear the NY Times reporters claim source protection privilege when the President is not afforded the basic Executive Privileges that every Chief Executive has had and defended since George Washington.”

 

“The Senate has a choice.  Either end this fraudulent impeachment, or open it up into a free for all.  After three years of being ‘prosecuted’ in the press and three months of the House ‘impeachment’ hearings, mostly held in secret, the President deserves to be able to completely and fully make his case if additional House witnesses are allowed to be called.  If the Senate doesn’t have the stomach for opening the door to a full inquiry into the corruption of the Ukrainian involvement on behalf of Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election, the Bidens money grab and the shady Schiff House process, then they should not open the door to any additional witnesses.”

Personal Thoughts Leading to B.D. Wright Deep State Interview


Intro by John R. Houk

Intro © January 26, 2020

Frank Camp in a Daily Wire interview with a former CIA employee Bryan Dean Wright about the machination of an America Deep State. Wright self-describes himself as a lifelong Dem which for me has become a dirty word in the English language.

 

In the part one of the interview he describes Dems of his admiration in the past contrasted with present day Dems epitomized by AOC and Bernie Sanders. A point I can relate to because I grew up in a Dem Party family hailing from the Pacific Northwest just as Wright.

 

My Dem family’s devotion to Dems was due to their perception it was the Franklin Roosevelt Dems that saved Americans from starvation resulting from joblessness of the Great Depression. (I have since learned my family’s perception was probably misplaced of actual facts were more public in 1930s, 40s, 50s and right into the 60s. BUT that’s another story.) The Dem Senators of my childhood and early teen years were Henry (Scoop) Jackson and Warren Magnuson. Both Jackson and Magnuson were old fashioned Americans more concerned about benefitting the State of Washington they represented than the USA at large. Jackson in his day was considered a Liberal yet extremely Anti-Communist to the point of committing the U.S. Military to confront Communist expansionism. In essence Jackson was a motivated Anti-Communist Hawk more than he was a Liberal. It is this personal memory of Jackson I have that convinces me the Jackson of yesteryear would have deserted the Democratic Party of today because of that political Party’s lurch toward Marxist Socialism.

 

WELL … Back to Pacific Northwest exposer of the Deep State Dem Bryan Dean Wright. Wright is going out on limb exposing how the Deep State is operating ergo I half-way suspect a tragic accident, mysterious suicide or unexplained homicide might be in his future. I pray not.

 

Below is a cross post of The Daily Wire interview that was posted on 1/25 and 1/26/20.

INTERVIEW (Part I): Former CIA Officer Explains The Shocking Details And Dangers Of The ‘Deep State’

 

By  Frank Camp

January 25, 2020

The Daily Wire

Over the last several years, the term “Deep State” has been used frequently by both President Trump, during speeches and on social media, as well as by some Trump-supporting pundits. President Trump and the commentators who support him often use the term to describe a group of bureaucratic insiders who want the president out of office.

 

These individuals represent a loosely-connected web of unelected bureaucrats, often left over from previous administrations, who allegedly utilize their intel and reach in order to disrupt the agenda of the president and his allies.

 

But what exactly is the Deep State? Who exactly are the Deep State players? What damage can they do? And what can be done to stop them?

 

On Wednesday, I had the opportunity to speak with Bryan Dean Wright, a former CIA officer who now serves as a contract instructor for the military. Wright, a self-described “lifelong Democrat,” was not only able to answer my questions about the Deep State, but provide incredible insight into this not-so-well-understood world of leakers and bad actors.

 

In part one of this interview, Wright discusses his own background in the CIA, the origins of what we would call the modern “Deep State,” the bad actors operating from the inside, the damage they have done, and much more.

 

DW: What was your former job at the CIA?

WRIGHT: I first served as an operations officer. These are the folks that, in short, go abroad to recruit spies and steal secrets. I did that for a number of years, then transitioned to the private sector and did some work in New York. I went back into the agency after a hiatus and served as what’s called a targeting officer. That role finds the people and organizations that can fill in the gaps of our understanding of particular adversaries, specifically their leadership and their plans and intentions. I developed targeting packages of how to get in front of those people and recruit them as clandestine sources.

DW: Why did you decide to leave the agency?

WRIGHT: The original reason back in the mid-2000s was because my brother needed to go into rehab for his alcohol addiction, and unfortunately my family didn’t have the money to send him. So, I had to go in the private sector and earn it. Once I was able to do that – after my brother achieved his sobriety – I got back into the agency.

And then in December of 2015, I left for the second and final time. The reason I left then was more out of sorrow and anger for what I saw happening. And it really gets to the issue of the “Deep State.” I met with a bunch of people that were tied-in to some of our covert action operations – I was reviewing and auditing them – and these senior executives weren’t taking it seriously or tried to hinder my efforts. A lot of people didn’t want to have accountability for their failures. Or, secondarily, they didn’t want to have to go back to the National Security Council or even the President or Vice President and say, “Actually, what we’ve been telling you was wrong, or it wasn’t quite true.” And so I became very frustrated and I just didn’t see myself being complicit with that degree of unprofessionalism at a minimum or flat out treachery at worst. So, I transitioned out.

DW: What is your primary job now?

WRIGHT: I serve as a contract instructor for the military – and some of those details I can’t dive into at present – but that’s part of what I do. And I spend a lot of time writing and going on different TV outlets, Fox in particular, to talk in part about national security-related issues.

I also write and talk a lot about politics. As a lifelong Democrat, I share with my readers and audiences what I see as this horrific drift by the party away from what I grew up with in the Pacific Northwest: a moderate, sensible Democratic Party. For instance, I remember men like Tom Foley, former Speaker of the House, who was from rural Eastern Washington. Or a guy like Cecil Andrus, a sensible, no-nonsense Democratic Governor of Idaho. These folks are the Democrats who I grew up with, and my family was a part of. But that is no longer the party that we see. Instead, we see the party of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Tom Perez, and it’s these absolute bonkers elements that I don’t identify with, are horrifying, and I think ultimately will bring the entirety of the Democratic Party down. And if that’s what has to happen, well, I hope the Republicans can keep a light on for me.

DW: So, what is the “Deep State?” We hear it all the time in conservative media, especially on outlets like Fox News. But what is the “Deep State” really?

WRIGHT: To understand the Deep State, you have to understand a man named Aldrich Ames. He was a CIA officer who, in the 1980s, decided to commit treason and work for the Soviet Union, and his treachery cost the lives of many of our Soviet agents. When Ames was asked why he did it, his response was this, “I know what’s best for foreign policy and national security … and I’m going to act on that.” That’s the definition and the ethos of the Deep State. It’s an unelected group of men and women with profound powers of the surveillance state who use those powers to advance their own interests, whether it be personal or partisan.

And that last bit I think is important. Why do they do it? In the distant past, guys like Aldrich Ames, they’d leak to our enemies because of ego and for money. But in the recent past, like what we’ve seen with Former FBI Director James Comey, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, and former Director of the CIA John Brennan, they’re leaking to The New York Times or CNN because, yes ego and money, but clearly a sense of partisan warfare. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t discount their ego and monetary motivations. I mean, look, they’ve taken paid media contributorships and I’m sure it makes them feel very important. But what we’re seeing is more than that. It’s partisan, and it’s personal. I think that’s different and that’s frightening. I would say that, in essence, is the “Deep State,” and that is what’s driving Deep State actors today.

DW: This may be a bit of a redundant question, but who are the Deep State? Who would you identify as major Deep State actors?

WRIGHT: In the recent past, Comey, Brennan, Clapper are the most obvious, big names. But based on the IG reports, we’re also seeing more mid-level bureaucrats, like the Lisa Pages and the Peter Strzoks and the Bruce Ohrs. These are Deep Staters: folks who are unelected and frankly unaccountable to anyone, using their power and knowledge to satisfy a personal agenda, irrespective of the law. That’s certainly what we’ve seen in the IG reports regarding Crossfire Hurricane, and it’s clear that these bureaucrats had no problem executing their own partisan or personal agendas believing their relative anonymity would hide them from accountability.

I think that those individuals are just the ones we know about. And I think, God willing, Attorney General Bill Barr and United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut John Durham are going to flush out other actors and bring them to account, and lead to further clarity on if indeed the Comeys and Brennans and Clappers of the intelligence community can be brought forward on charges. That’s certainly the hope if the facts allow.

DW: In what malign activities specifically have members of this Deep State participated?

WRIGHT: Let’s start with Comey. We know that he was leaking to The New York Times, and he wasn’t leaking because he had any reasonable belief that President Trump was up to no good. I mean, the IG has shown conclusively that he was leaking to advance his own personal interests. In fact, [it] labeled Comey as a dangerous example to the tens of thousands of current and former FBI employees. So, that opens up this horrific floodgate of the Aldrich Ames ethos that, if you think that you know best for national security or foreign policy, that you, FBI employee, can damage whomever you’d like. You, Mr. FBI or CIA employee, who has access to secret human or signals intelligence – emails, phone calls – you get to decide what material should be leaked to kneecap politicians you don’t like. Oh, and you will face no consequences for it! That, I think, is the horrific legacy that Comey leaves behind.

And again, let’s emphasize something here: Comey knew early on that Trump was not going to be found guilty of having engaged in impropriety with the Russian government. Comey had participated with others in the intelligence community to investigate these allegations. He and the others knew, in early 2017 if not before, that there was nothing there. Think of this: if the intelligence community had any information in 2016 or 2017 that Trump was a Russian spy, they wouldn’t have sat on it. They would have immediately gotten it to Mueller or folks on Capitol Hill, and they would have rightfully brought that forward to the American people and removed the president. But that didn’t happen.

So, certainly Comey has a very clear record, demonstrated record, of doing a number of things that weren’t just atypical, but that were wrong. And again, I think that’s what AG Barr and John Durham are trying to fully flush out.

I think that the other characters – John Brennan especially, but also Comey and Clapper – used the dossier and Christopher Steele as pawns in a political game. Both Steele and his dossier were known to be unreliable in the fall of 2016. Indeed, by mid January 2017, Brennan was specifically on record as saying he gave the dossier no particular credence, according to The Wall Street Journal. Well, that’s amazing. Because they included that dossier in a brief to not only then President-elect Trump, but to then President Obama and Joe Biden and, of course, the principals on Capitol Hill. Why would they have done that? There was no legal or intelligence value. They knew Steele and the dossier were verified garbage. But they briefed it anyway. To lots of people.

As a former intelligence officer, I can tell you that this isn’t normal operating procedure. At all. You don’t brief an unvetted document like the dossier to the president-elect and tell him that he’s a corrupt Russian traitor. And you certainly wouldn’t do it if you had already done a degree of investigation and found that there was no veracity to any of the claims. I mean, hell, you don’t even have to be an intelligence officer to understand that.

But what Steele and his dossier lacked in legal or intelligence value, both more than made up for it in political value. And Brennan, Comey, and Clapper knew it. They knew how damaging it would be to Trump if America were to believe the dossier’s allegations. They just needed to give the news media a hook to run with the claims, which were widely known in Washington but went unreported because they were unverified. So their solution, it turns out, was to make themselves the media’s necessary hook. By their simple act of briefing the dossier to so many, it gave credence to the claims and that in fact the dossier existed. Naturally, the Resistance Media – which went all in against President Trump – was happy to distribute their propaganda.

Let me emphasize: the dossier had been refuted by the intelligence community after considerable investigation. There was no legal or intelligence value to briefing the dossier. In fact, the CIA at the time was calling it “internet rumor.” But Brennan, Comey, and Clapper clearly didn’t care. Why? Because they had an end goal: if they could get the media to report on this dossier, then that would be effectively the end of the Trump presidency, or certainly put the president on his heels for a couple of years. They would utterly kneecap him. At least that was their hope.

So, I think that that is the gravest example of Deep State treachery.

DW: To what extent does the media participate in enabling these Deep State actors to do what they want and feel they need to do, and how should that be approached?

WRIGHT: The most obvious and demonstrable connection between these Deep State actors and the media is that guys like Comey, Brennan, and Clapper now, to varying degrees, have paid contributorships with media outlets. Think of it: we know that they were leaking classified information to these outlets when they were government employees, and now they have jobs with them. I mean, my god, what does that tell other intelligence community professionals? What are the consequence for breaking the law? Because, as of today, my former colleagues can apparently leak based on their own personal or partisan agenda to the media, and then, in turn, can get a great, cushy job from that same media outlet when they quit or retire. That’s a horrifying example with profound consequences to our Republic because you’re incentivizing intelligence professionals to leak or kneecap people they don’t like. If that takes root, what in the hell will prevent us from becoming Pakistan or Egypt? These countries, by the way, are run by the intelligence or military communities, sprinkled with a veneer of democracy.

Is that what we are to become? Because that really is the end result of allowing a politicized intelligence community to go unchecked. And that’s why Barr and Durham’s work is so important. These people have to be held to account.

Now at the same time, it’s not just the media who are gaining from this. They’re also being manipulated by the Brennans, the Comeys, and the Clappers. In March of 2018, for example, The Daily Beast reported that Brennan and Clapper were doing a roadshow around the country to various elite groups and big money people, and they stopped by Hollywood. Brennan told them that Trump would not finish out the year (2018) as President of the United States; he would be removed because of his treacherous relationship with Vladimir Putin and the Russians.

Clapper was also there, and they were doing this to both create and then fan the flames of hysteria. Remember that their audience was made up of the Hollywood elites, the very individuals who control or contribute mightily to the public sphere, create narratives, create truth. So, it is not an accident that Brennan and Clapper would be there in Hollywood in March of 2018 spreading these lies. Again, they knew that the Trump/Russia narrative wasn’t true but, as with the dossier, they needed the media to continue to manipulate the American people to achieve their political end. And who better to have in their back pocket than those Hollywood executives who have our eyeballs and our ears, whether it be on movie screens or television screens. Brennan and Clapper needed them because they needed hysteria. And that’s precisely what they’ve been committed to. Virulently and unapologetically so.

DW: There are criticisms, mostly from the Left, that the “Deep State” is blamed for every bad thing that surrounds the Trump presidency and the administration. It’s almost like a joke to many people on the Left. “Oh, the Deep State! It must be the Deep State!” Is the idea of the Deep State in any way overblown? And if so, to what degree?

WRIGHT: You know, in 2017, when Sen. Chuck Schumer, the Senate minority leader, was being interviewed by Rachel Maddow, she was telling him about Trump’s taking on the CIA or the intelligence community, and his response, then and now, was so illustrative and so jaw dropping.

If you recall, he said, “If you take on the intelligence community, they have six ways from Sunday to get back at you.” So, Chuck Schumer recognizes that the Deep State is real, and that they will exact revenge at a time and a place and on people of their choosing.

Let’s pause for a second and really think about the modern Left’s response to the fact that the Deep State is real, and that these intelligence officials will decide our nation’s political winners and losers. Really consider Chuck Schumer’s flippant acceptance of it all. I can’t imagine a more horrifying thing for any person of any party to say ever – because think of the consequence of that. The modern American Left is basically saying, “You know, we love those Deep State guys. They’re real, and we love it because Orange Man Bad. And they’ll take this guy out for us. Because we just don’t like him.”

I mean, they’re incentivizing a bunch of people to continue to break the law because it fits their temporary, short-term partisan goals. Never mind the fact that they’re setting a brush fire to the Republic. I mean, it’s amazing to me knowing how many folks on the Left who have been so virulently opposed to the CIA and FBI, given some of the sins, unquestionable sins – starting in the 40s and ramping up through the Cold War in the 50s, through the 70s and 80s – to now see that our own “progressive” leadership is somehow winking and nudging with our good friends like John Brennan and the rest because they’re taking on Orange Man. So, this suggestion by the people on the Left, my fellow Democrats, who would say, “Well, that’s just silly. It’s a conspiracy…” Well, they need to take it up with Chuck Schumer because he thinks the Deep State is real, too. And he fears them.

DW: Is this type of behavior something that has gone on for a long time?

WRIGHT: The short answer is yes. There is a history of individuals who get this profound power when working for the FBI or the CIA or NSA and abuse it. I can tell you, I worked with individuals who used their abilities to tap phone calls and emails to look after ex-boyfriends or ex-spouses. And those individuals were eventually found out and rightfully fired. In other words, human frailty – or the part of the human condition that is indeed so frail as to be given profound powers and then use them for ill – that has always existed, and that will always exist. That’s why it’s so important to conduct oversight of law enforcement and intelligence, and indeed military communities.

The difference, though, from that unfortunate low level abuse of power is that the treachery of modern Deep State actors – Comey, Brennan, and Clapper – is that they wanted to overrule the American voters. They wanted to upend the free and fair election of Donald Trump. They wanted to choose a different leader to run the nation. Their purpose in leaking to the media was to take out a duly-elected president because they either didn’t like the guy or they wanted Hillary Clinton to win. Many of them, I suspect, liked Clinton because they knew that they were going to have positions of authority or influence in her administration.

That degree of audacity I think is new, and I think that it is incredibly dangerous. And the lack of focus on that treachery is one of the profound lost opportunities of our political class, particularly on the Left, of the past few years. They could have said, “The actions of Comey, Clapper, and Brennan were horrifically wrong and they should face justice. And, meanwhile, we oppose the president on X, Y, and Z policies.” That would have been the right thing to do. As an opposition party, you can do both of those things, but that’s not what the Left has done. That’s certainly not what Pelosi and Schumer and our friends Rep. Adam Schiff and Rep. Jerry Nadler are doing right now with the impeachment.

All of this has been 100% focused on bringing down the president from day one, instead of having a much more balanced, nuanced approach to his presidency. And I think, and frankly I hope, that that’s why the Democratic Party loses in 2020. I don’t know of any other way to get rid of the rot that is in Washington, and within the leadership of the Democratic Party. Because if a progressive wins – Sen. Elizabeth Warren or, God forbid, Sen. Bernie Sanders – or even if Joe Biden wins, the lesson for the Democratic leadership, the lesson for the media, will not be that their treachery was bad, but that it worked.

In part two of this interview, which will be released on Sunday, Wright talks about what the Deep State would look like if a Democrat wins in 2020, what can be done to root out these malign actors, what the media can do, the dangers of normalizing socialism, and more.

INTERVIEW (Part II): Former CIA Officer On What The ‘Deep State’ Looks Like If A Democrat Wins In 2020, And What Can Be Done To Recover

Over the last several years, the term “Deep State” has been used frequently by both President Trump, during speeches and on social media, as well as by some Trump-supporting pundits. President Trump and the commentators who support him often use the term to describe a group of bureaucratic insiders who want the president out of office.

 

These individuals represent a loosely-connected web of unelected bureaucrats, often left over from previous administrations, allegedly who utilize their intel and reach in order to disrupt the agenda of the president and his allies.

 

But what exactly is the Deep State? Who exactly are the Deep State players? What damage can they do? And what can be done to stop them?

 

On Wednesday, I had the opportunity to speak with Bryan Dean Wright, a former CIA officer who now serves as a contract instructor for the military. Wright, a self-described “lifelong Democrat,” was not only able to answer my questions about the Deep State, but provide incredible insight into this not-so-well-understood world of leakers and bad actors.

 

In part one of this interview, which you can read here, Wright discussed his own background in the CIA, the origins of what we would today call the “Deep State,” the bad actors operating from the inside, the damage they have done, and more.

 

In part two below, Wright talks about what the Deep State might look like if a Democrat wins 2020, what can be done to rein in the Deep State, what the media can do, as well as the way President Trump has brought this bureaucratic monster into the light.

 

DW: Do you believe that if a Democrat is elected in 2020, the Deep State actors will continue to disseminate information, but for the other side? Are there proportionate actors on both sides, or is it disproportionate leaking on one side?

WRIGHT: You are out of your mind if you think there aren’t Trump supporters within the intelligence community, and that if he loses in 2020, won’t be absolutely outraged that Trump was, in their eyes, taken down because of the media and because of the Deep State actors. And you’re equally foolish to think that they won’t use their knowledge and their influence to kneecap the next Democratic president – President Sanders, President Warren, President Biden. Of course there will be people in the conservative world who work in the intelligence community who will find ways to strike back, and that is something that I have been warning about for years. Once you start this process of politicizing the intelligence community, when does it stop? We are marching down a very dangerous road where each side is so hellbent to exact revenge, and we get these political blood feuds that are wildly difficult to stop.

So, I would not be surprised at all if there were attempts by Trump supporters within the intelligence community to strike back at a progressive or otherwise Democratic president in 2020 and beyond because if we are looking at the example of Comey, Clapper, and Brennan as of today, what consequences would they face? What consequences did James Comey face when he unquestionably leaked to The New York Times to force the appointment of special counsel? He leaked classified information. What were the consequences that James Comey has had to face? He got a professorship at William and Mary University teaching ethics, he’s gone on a nationwide book tour, and he has a movie coming out based on his life and times. I mean, are you f***ing kidding me? That’s the consequence that the intelligence community is now looking at if they leak classified information. So you tell me, are we setting up the Republic for a problem? The answer is absolutely yes.

DW: You mentioned AG Bill Barr several times, but what can be done at this point to reign in the Deep State? Not only by the government and people like the attorney general, but by everyone else who has some sort of power?

WRIGHT: Let’s start first with the CIA. Gina Haspel, who’s the CIA director, she can start change. She is in control of the culture of her senior intelligence service, her senior executives, and they are the ones who engage directly with her and the White House, the National Security Council, on a regular basis. She can make sure that these folks understand there are in fact consequences for their behavior, remind them of things like the Hatch Act, what they can and can’t do. She can also, if she has suspicions or wants to make an example of someone, pull those individuals in for re-investigations and have them polygraphed for connections to the press.

She also has that same ability with her mid-level or junior staff, to pull them in on an ongoing basis to remind them of the same things, like the Hatch Act, and that what is happening in the public sphere is wrong; that while they absolutely have an opportunity, a right, to engage in our political process, they certainly should not be emulating the behavior of James Comey. She can use her leadership and her platform to do that.

She can also work with the human resources folks when they’re bringing people on board, to talk about building a new culture within the CIA that reminds people that they are subservient to the President and ultimately subservient to the American people; that it is an honor and a privilege to work at the agency, and if they are found to be abusing the profound powers that they are given, they will be held to account.

Now, that becomes a much more difficult message to sell when James Comey gets away with it. And that’s why the work of Attorney General Barr and John Durham is so important. Gina Haspel has to have concrete examples of consequences for this Deep State treachery. There are other modest things you can do, like stripping security clearances of former professionals who leave and no longer use them on a daily basis, or a project basis – but that stuff is ultimately not as important as changing the culture for why intelligence professionals, law enforcement professionals should not be leaking, A) at all, and B) classified information, and that there will be consequences if they do.

DW: Is there anything the media can do? I mean, responsible media.

WRIGHT: One of the things that I think would be very helpful is if we understood the bias of a particular reporter or media outlet, and then grade that severity of bias with each story that’s aired or published. For instance, I’d love to hover my cursor over a reporter’s name and have a bubble pop up that rates likely bias, with links to examples of said bias. Yes, I recognize the tricky nature of what I’m suggesting – who ranks the bias? But I think there’s a market-based solution to be found.

Another way we consumers ought to flag biased or untrustworthy reporting is when a reporter or outlet uses unnamed sources. Given that Comey has now admitted to being an anonymous media source, it should tell Americans that they should be very suspicious about the motivations of these mysterious people making allegations. And, frankly, it says a lot about the lack of moral character by these sources. They should stand up and say the right thing on the record if they suspect fraud, waste, and abuse, for example. Because that’s how it’s supposed to be done. If you are within the intelligence community and you have problems with your leadership, even the president themself, there are ways that you address that, and it’s not leaking to the press.

So, I think because of our beautiful Constitution, we give our media a lot of leash to report on the facts. But without understanding the bias of the outlet and the reporter, we don’t know if we’re really getting facts, but rather spin. I believe that there’s some good work that could be done on this thorny issue, and on a self-regulating basis. I’m not sure that it’s the government’s role to do that, but nevertheless, a more honest accounting of bias, I think, would be a really critical step to restoring people’s belief and faith in the media. The goal is giving the American people a way to read or watch something and say, “Oh, that reporter is biased, and I’m going to discount this report or give it much less weight than I otherwise would have.”

DW: Which would require self-reflection by individual members of the media to assess their own biases.

WRIGHT: Yeah.

DW: I know that you’re a self-professed “lifelong Democrat,” but what is your political ideology, and has the Trump presidency and the seemingly steroidal Deep State shaped your opinions in a new way that perhaps you hadn’t thought of before?

WRIGHT: Well, I think that like many Americans, I was trepidatious about President Trump, certainly in 2015 and 2016, as the noise was getting louder that he would be a viable candidate and then indeed the President of the United States. But what I have seen over the past three years is that’s he’s playing a very important, a vital role in fact, of blowing up the status quo, of blowing up a system that fundamentally wasn’t working. I’ve come to appreciate that his presidency could be used by the people to create the kind of country, the kind of Republic, that we deserve, which is one that’s accountable to people, that actually gets stuff done, that doesn’t focus on partisanship as much. At least that is, I think, the promise that I have begun to see in President Trump.

And I certainly would say that his positions are reflective of most Democrats, certainly ten years ago. On the border issues, on immigration, he’s saying the exact same things the Democrats were saying not long ago. In 2008, if you looked at the DNC’s platform, Obama was not a hell of a lot different than President Trump on this issue.

So, I think that he represents a lot of common sense on a number of issues that I’ve come to appreciate. Most especially, I think that he’s exposed this Deep State garbage that would have never, ever been exposed under a President Clinton. James Comey would likely still be the FBI director. Think about that. All these others, the McCabes and the Brennans and the Comeys, would all still be in D.C. with their hands on the levers of power.

I think that Trump’s service to this country, of exposing that Deep State, may be one of his greatest legacies.

Depending on how the China issue shakes out, I think that he could be a monumental president regarding how we take on the Chinese. Again, we’ll see.

I’ve really appreciated his approach to the War on Terror. What he has done with Soleimani in Iran, for instance. Under Bush and Obama, Soleimani and the Iranians basically had us buffaloed into a corner, and we wouldn’t take them on because we feared World War III. Well, Trump just gave that a gigantic middle finger and reminded them that they are the junior partner in this relationship, and that we would be setting the agenda. That’s precisely what needed to happen for over 16 years under two different administrations from two different political parties, and Trump finally did the right thing.

And I will tell you, from people that I know who worked the Iran issue inside the intelligence community, they were absolutely elated with Trump’s decision to kill Soleimani.

So overall, I think that the president is doing much better than many of us may have been concerned about, and he deserves a very serious consideration of our vote in 2020.

As it relates to my own personal ideology or philosophy, I would like to say I’m an old school Democrat of the Kennedy/Foley ilk, a Democrat who understands that America was and remains exceptional, and that we have a critical role to play in the world, and that it’s a role that will be respected by our partners even when they don’t like it. It’s leadership through unabashed strength. Trump has restored some of that which was lost under Bush and Obama, contrary to the media hype that would tell you otherwise. I think that’s lost on the modern American Left.

On domestic policies, I think that I believe the same things that I did ten years ago, like the importance of controlled immigration, that we have to have borders. I don’t see that as something that is part of the modern Democratic Left. Trump’s brought that out in stark relief.

But this schism within the Democratic Party isn’t because of Trump. It’s a fight that’s been had over many decades, in fits and starts. We dealt with this desire to unreasonably expand the state, for example, back in the 60s and 70s. Meanwhile, I thought we had put the socialist genie back in the bottle and marginalized those radical leftist elements around that same time. But very clearly, as the DNC declares Ocasio-Cortez the future of the Democratic Party, I think these dark forces are at play again. And we have a huge problem – we being the party, and the nation. It’s a problem that would leave people like Jack Kennedy and Tom Foley rolling over in their graves.

I don’t know where people like me go if a progressive wins the Democratic nomination or the presidency. Polling shows that moderate and conservative Democrats make up anywhere from 35% to 50% of the party. I think our vote will be up for grabs. I think many of us will gravitate to a new Republican Party.

DW: Is there something that you would want our readers to know that you and I haven’t touched on, or perhaps that you think is important that hasn’t been really talked about in the various interviews in which you’ve engaged?

WRIGHT: I don’t think that most Americans understand what the socialist movement in this country is up to. I think many people understand that socialism is bad, although a shocking number of Democrats, particularly younger voters, don’t think it’s a bad thing at all. Still, people don’t appreciate appreciate what Bernie Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez are doing with the Democratic Party, and I don’t think that most people appreciate why that’s bad, not just for the Democratic Party, but for the country. And ultimately the world.

Let me explain.

Our Republic requires multiple parties to hold each other to account. We have to have multiple voices at the table to challenge each other, to question each other. Our Republic thrives or falls based on that broad contribution and debate, and right now, the Democratic Party is becoming a movement that doesn’t warrant consideration. The reason is its embrace of socialists and their wicked ideology.

The Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders movement – Democratic Socialists of America, or DSA – started many years ago, of course. But their plans really morphed and solidified in 2012, as the DSA put forward a strategy document that basically said to its members, “Look, as socialists, we know that we can’t win in this country running as the Socialist Party. We have to rebrand ourselves. That means we register as Democrats, we run as Democrats, and then push the party so far to the Left as fast as we can that the party fissures into progressives vs. moderates and conservatives. We will then break off, taking with us the bulk of the party, the base. Then and only then can we revive the Socialist Party. Because then we won’t be scary anymore. We will have normalized the socialist agenda.” It’s an agenda, of course, that has been rightfully smeared by its decades of mass death and destruction in every country that has adopted it. So, no wonder they’re trying to rebrand it.

That’s where we’re at. And that’s what Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie are doing. So, when you hear them talk about “free stuff” – education, housing, health care, jobs – know that they’re rebranding themselves with unserious policy proposals that they can’t possibly afford not because they’re being serious, but only trying to make the Socialist Party less scary.

It’s all in the 2012 DSA strategy document, all available on the DSA website for anyone to read. I wish more Americans took the time to review it, understand it, and grasp the treachery of Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders. They’re using the Democratic Party as though it’s a host to be invaded and occupied by a socialist virus. The only aim is to strip the Democratic Party down to nothing, destroy it, and then leave with the voters who would serve their revived Socialist Party.

If that were to happen, think of the consequences not just for the Democratic Party or even America. What would happen to the world? What would happen to humanity if, somehow, the United States were to succumb to socialism?

Who would step into that vacuum of global leadership that for so long has defended liberty and freedom? The clear answer is China, a country that persecutes its people, that embraces murderous concentration camps for the Uighur people. That is the government that would be controlling humanity’s future.

That is what’s at stake. That’s what happens to liberty, to freedom, if the United States, imperfect as we are, is no longer on the scene because we embrace socialism.

And for those who argue that Russia might step up, count me skeptical. With an economy the size of Italy and a leadership that enjoys oppression as much as the Chinese, these are not the people we want to lead humanity.

So, if the Democratic Party falls to the socialist wing with all their horrific values, and the United States is handicapped and is no longer able to play the role that it does in the world, imperfect as we may be, we will jeopardize all the progress that we have fought so hard for, certainly since World War II, to create a more just and a more peaceful world.

That’s really what is at stake for me as I watch the Democratic Party fall into the socialist trap, as I watch Chuck and Nancy and the DNC embrace Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders as the future of the Democratic Party. I watch in horror as progressives in the media fawn over Ocasio-Cortez. People like Rachel Maddow and Joy Behar package her as some fun, dance-on-the-roof kind of girl that’s just a lovely representation of womanhood or being black or brown.

If that bologna salesmanship convinces enough Americans that socialism isn’t so bad after all, and we start going down that path, then we will lose everything that we have fought for over the past 100 years. So we have to get this right. We have to self-correct – as a Democratic Party, as a country – because so much is at stake.

Examine Islam


Don’t be Fooled by Supremacism, Lies and False Peace

If you’ve ever Islamic revered writings such as the Quran, Hadith, Sira and various Muslim theologians commenting on the big revered three AND you are not an adherent of Islam, YOU ARE AWARE ISLAM IS EVIL toward all things non-Islamic.

 

Even though those revered writings designate Jews and Christians as People of the Book (because a Muslim dare not say Holy Bible), it is written of them THAT failure to submit to the superiority of Islam is death.

 

I’m a Christian that refuses to relegate my faith to an inferior position submitting to Muslim lies about Jesus Christ the Son of God Crucified to death on a Cross and arisen three days later to His Glorified life fully human and fully God. Christian beliefs labeled as blasphemy in Islam.

 

 

It has been quite some time since I have posted on Islam exposing that belief system as deficient, contrary and downright anti-Christian. And so I have been saving some posts from other blogs and websites exposing a nefarious Islam (primarily from Sheaholliman’s Weblog) which I will cross post here (probably with a little spellcheck applied).

 

If you are Facebook poster be careful. Sharing may land you in Facebook Jail. As you will read in an Editor’s note, I’m serving restricted time in Facebook Jail until April 18. I’m restricted to only Groups I moderate, but I got a feeling a full restriction is in my future for I also will not submit to Fascistbook Censors.

“Hating and Loving” for Islam

 

By Raymond Ibrahim

01/17/2020

Originally FrontPageMag.com

RaymondIbrahim.com

 

During a New Year’s Eve Islamic terror attack that took place in Russia minutes before the clock struck midnight, two Muslim men—Akhmed Imagozhev, 22 and Mikail Miziyev, 18—drove their car into and stabbed to death two police officers, one a married father of four.  Other officers subsequently shot one of the jihadis dead, while hospitalizing the other.

 

Akhmed Imagozhev, 22 and Mikail Miziyev, 18

 

An image of the two Muslim men posing with knives was later found on social media (right).  Beneath it appears the words, “love and hatred based on Tawhid!”

 

This is hardly the first time this ostensibly oxymoronic phrase appears in connection with Islamic acts of terror.  After launching a successful attack that killed two policemen in the Kashmir Valley, the militant commander of Kashmir’s Hizb al-Mujahidin—“the Party of Jihadis”—justified the murders by saying,  “We love and hate for the sake of Allah.”

 

In this otherwise cryptic motto lie the roots of Islam’s conflict with the rest of the world.  “Loving and hating” is one of several translations of the Islamic doctrine of al-wala’ wa’l-bara’ (which since 2006 I have generally translated as “Loyalty and Enmity”).

 

The wala’ portion—“love,” “loyalty,” etc.—requires Muslims always to aid and support fellow Muslims (including jihadis, for example through funds or zakat).  As one medieval Muslim authority explained, the believer “is obligated to befriend a believer—even if he is oppressive and violent toward you — while he must be hostile to the infidel—even if he is liberal and kind to you” (The Al Qaeda Reader, p. 64 ).   This is a clear reflection of Koran 48:29: “Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah; and those with him are forceful against the disbelievers, merciful among themselves.”

 

But it is the bara’—the “hate,” the “enmity”—that manifests itself so regularly that even those in the West who are not necessarily acquainted with the particulars of Muslim doctrine sense it.  For instance, in November 2015, after a series of deadly Islamic terror strikes in the West, then presidential candidate Donald Trump said, “I think Islam hates us.  There’s something there that — there’s a tremendous hatred there. There’s a tremendous hatred. We have to get to the bottom of it. There’s an unbelievable hatred of us.”

 

This “tremendous” and “unbelievable hatred” is not a product of grievances, political factors, or even an “extremist” interpretation of Islam; rather, it is a direct byproduct of mainstream Islamic teaching.  Koran 60:4 is the cornerstone verse of this doctrine and speaks for itself.  As Osama bin Laden once wrote:

 

As to the relationship between Muslims and infidels, this is summarized by the Most High’s Word: “We renounce you. Enmity and hate shall forever reign between us—till you believe in Allah alone” [Koran 60:4]. So there is an enmity, evidenced by fierce hostility from the heart. And this fierce hostility—that is, battle—ceases only if the infidel submits to the authority of Islam, or if his blood is forbidden from being shed [i.e., a dhimmi], or if Muslims are at that point in time weak and incapable. But if the hate at any time extinguishes from the heart, this is great apostasy!… Such, then, is the basis and foundation of the relationship between the infidel and the Muslim. Battle, animosity, and hatred—directed from the Muslim to the infidel—is the foundation of our religion.  (The Al Qaeda Reader, p. 43).

 

Similarly, the Islamic State confessed to the West in the context of Koran 60: 4 that “We hate you, first and foremost, because you are disbelievers.”  As for any and all political “grievances,” these are “secondary” reasons for the jihad, ISIS said:

 

The fact is, even if you were to stop bombing us, imprisoning us, torturing us, vilifying us, and usurping our lands, we would continue to hate you because our primary reason for hating you will not cease to exist until you embrace Islam. Even if you were to pay jizyah and live under the authority of Islam in humiliation, we would continue to hate you.

 

Koran 58:22 goes as far as to praise Muslims who kill their own non-Muslim family members: “You shall find none who believe in Allah and the Last Day on friendly terms with those who oppose Allah and His Messenger—even if they be their fathers, their sons, their brothers, or their nearest kindred.”

 

According to Ibn Kathir’s mainstream commentary on the Koran, this verse refers to a number of Muslims who slaughtered their own non-Muslim kin (one slew his non-Muslim father, another his non-Muslim brother, a third—Abu Bakr, the first revered caliph of Islamic history—tried to slay his non-Muslim son, and Omar, the second righteous caliph, slaughtered his relatives).   Ibn Kathir adds that Allah was immensely pleased by their unwavering zeal for his cause and rewarded them with paradise. (The Al Qaeda Reader75-76).

 

In fact, verses that support the divisive doctrine of al-wala’ wa’l-bara’ [Blog Editor: an excellent post on this doctrine HERE] permeate the Koran (see also 4:89, 4:144, 5:51, 5:54, 6:40, 9:23, and 60:1).  There is one caveat, captured by Koran 3:28: when Muslims are in a position of weakness, they may pretend to befriend non-Muslims, as long as the hate carries on in their hearts (such is taqiyya; see herehere, and here for examples; for other Islamic sanctioned forms of deception, read about tawriya, and taysir).

 

Little wonder, then, that America’s supposed best Muslim friends and allies—such as Saudi Arabia and Qatar—have issued fatwas calling on all Muslims to “oppose and hate whomever Allah commands us to oppose and hate, including the Jews, the Christians, and other mushrikin [non-Muslims], until they believe in Allah alone and abide by his laws, which he sent down to his Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings upon him.”

 

Indeed, because enmity for non-Muslims is so ironclad in the Koran, mainstream Islamic teaching holds that Muslim men must even hate—and show that they hate—their non-Muslim wives, for no other reason than that they are “infidels.”

 

If Muslims must hate those closest to them—including fathers, sons, brothers, and wives—simply because they are non-Muslims, is there any surprise that so many Muslims hate foreign “infidels” who live oceans away—such as Americans, who are further portrayed throughout the Muslim world as trying to undermine Islam?

 

In short, jihad—or terrorism, war on non-Muslims for no less a reason than that they are non-Muslims—is simply the physical realization of an overlooked concept that precedes it: Islam’s unequivocal command for Muslims to hate non-Muslims.

Around the world, people who leave the faith of Islam face state persecution, imprisonment, torture, and even execution, as well as violence, death threats, and ostracization from their own communities.

 

Many ex-Muslims risk so-called honor killing, forced marriage, kidnap, and communal violence at the hands of their families for “bringing shame” on their community. In Western countries, ex-Muslims are often thrown out of the family and face isolation and exclusion.

 

Mohamad grew up in a devout Muslim home, obediently following her parents’ orders to practice the rituals of Islam. But God was calling her to freedom and love. He was calling her to true faith. He was calling her to give up everything.

 

His Testimony is a remarkable spiritual journey from Islam to Christianity. It is also the untold story of how he ran from her father’s threats to find refuge in America. Most of all, it is the story of a young man who made life-changing sacrifices to follow Jesus—and who inspires us to do the same.

Sacred Deception – Taqiyya – Political Islam

 

Posted by obbop

January 23, 2020

Western Civilization in Peril

Originally from Political Islam (11/14/14)

Taqiya-ISLAMIC DECEPTION

 

VIDEO: Bill Warner, PhD: Sacred Deception — Taqiyya

 

“I’d like to talk to you about what I find a fascinating topic that is the topic of Islamic ethics, but in particular, a part of Islamic ethics which is called sacred deception or Taqiyya.  Let me give you a few ethical rules that come from the Hadith: a Muslim does not cheat another Muslim in business a Muslim doesn’t kill another Muslim a Muslim doesn’t touch another Muslim’s wife and a Muslim doesn’t lie to another Muslim.

 

You notice something here? That’s right. You and I are left out because you see Islam is not a symmetric ethical system. The golden rule is symmetric. “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” That is, there’s a balance here; the other and yourself are seen as equal. But in Islam if you’re a Kafir, you’re never equal to the Muslim. Islam does not have a golden rule. The Kafir is always inferior.

 

Now then, let’s talk about lying and deception. First let’s start with the fact that Allah has 99 names and one of those 99 names is he is the best of deceivers. But Allah is also the best of plotters and schemers so given that, it isn’t too surprising that we find in the Koran 16:106 “Those who disbelieve in Allah after having believed, who open up their hearts to disbelief will feel the wrath of Allah and have a terrible punishment.” In other words, apostates can be killed or otherwise punished. But it goes further. “But there is no punishment for anyone who is compelled to deny Allah in words but whose heart is faithful.” So in other words, a Muslim can lie about Islam if it serves Islam. And one of the ways he can serve Islam is that the Muslim is not discriminated against.

 

Here we have another in Koran 3:28: “Believers should not take Kafirs (unbelievers) as friends in preference to other believers. Who ever does this shall have no relationship left with Allah.” (In other words, if you’re a real friend [to a Kafir], you’re no longer friend of Allah). “ . . . unless you but guard yourself against them [Kafirs], taking precautions.” What this is interpreted to mean is that a Muslim can act friendly but he’s not actually the friend. That’s what is wrong. In other words, a Muslim may never give preference to a Kafir over a Muslim. There are, by the way, no less than 12 verses which say that a Muslim is not the friend of the Kafir.

 

Now let’s turn to the Hadith. “Mohammed: ‘Who will kill Ka’b bin Ashraf who has offended Allah and his prophet?’ A Muslim: ‘I will Mohammed. Would you have me do so?’‘ Yes. ’‘In order to kill him, I will need to deceive him. May I do that?’ Mohammed: ‘Yes.’” So, the Muslim deceived Ka’b bin Ashraf and he did kill him. What is this? This is the Sunna of Mohammed; it is possible to lie to the Kafir as long as it advances Islam. This is the nature of Taqiyya.

 

Now there is another way in which a Muslim can lie. There’s a hadith, a fairly well-known hadith, in which there are three reasons for Muslims to lie. One is jihad, that is the struggle against the Kafir. So a Muslim can lie to you anytime he needs to advance Islam. The other is a Muslim a lie to another Muslim if it will make the situation better. And a husband and wife may lie to each other as long as it smooths the relationships in the household. So deception is part of Islam. Allah is a deceiver. Mohammed was a deceiver, and therefore, every Muslim can be a deceiver. It is so special that it has a name, Taqiyya. So the next time you’re hearing something about Islam that just doesn’t sound right, and it comes from the mouth of a Muslim, you’re right. It’s not right. It’s a lie. It is Taqiyyah.

Guide to Islam And Islamic Extremism

0Censor Guide to Islam And Islamic Extremism

 

What is Islamic Extremism

 

Islamic extremism is a term that will cause many of us to have nightmares, imagining some person in our dreams with a mask and a turban, screaming Islamic phrases out as they jump with no fear into a crowd of people and blow themselves up. But what is Islamic extremism?

 

I imagine what standards you are viewing this against would change or alter your perception of what is extremist or not, so to keep things simple, how about we stay within Western Based perceptions. These are rather simple, an Islamic extremist is anyone that feels their religion gives them the right to try to dictate to people in the West what our interactions not only with them should be, but when forceful suggestions don’t work violence is acceptable.

 

What is the difference between Islam and the other Abrahamic faiths

 

Before I get too much into this, I need all to understand the differences between the faiths. While Jews believe that their faith is held sacred, the more orthodox may turn ornery if they feel you are infringing on their right to practice their faith, but as a rule, they would never dream of trying to force others to convert, they just want to be left alone. Judaism has made conversion hard to prevent people from converting for frivolous reasons. The violence one can read in the time of the early advent of Judaism, such as the Exodus, the conquering of the land wiping out of the people, this is not pertinent to Judaism today, the violent parts are rejected universally.

 

Christianity while more an outgoing faith in the way of proselytizing, the true teachings of the faith teach that this must be done with love, violence is rejected, forgiveness is to be handed out freely. Before anyone says that Christianity was very violent in the past, you are correct, but this was not due to the teachings, this was due to the politicization of the faith.

 

Islam

 

Screen Capture-mosque

 

But Islam is different, and please, don’t take this as saying that all Muslims are violent, in fact, that majority of Muslims are peace-loving people who as a rule have no problems living with people of other faiths. But this is where the similarities end, Islam was founded on violence, it teaches in its core teachings that violence is acceptable, in fact, will be needed in the end to force all to submit to  the faith; if you are truly going to delve deep into the faith, there is little you can do to get away from this.

 

But what is Islam? At its most basic component, you have to look at what Islam means, it means submission. Submission to whom? It is submission to Allah, and this was directed and taught by what they consider as the highest prophet, Mohammad. Mohammad in his teachings that were recorded in the Quran left little to choice (he never wrote the Quran, he was illiterate, others recorded what they heard him say), he openly stated he was the final word on all, what he stated did change over time. Early verses of Islam more peaceful in nature, later in life Mohammad was far from peaceful, these teachings take precedence over all others, thus the more peaceful verses when it was better to live in peace due to a lack of power  are superceded later with verses telling them to be not peaceful, naturally a Muslim will not ever offer up this information, instead will continue to quote the peaceful verses even though they know they gave way to the later ones.

 

Unlike Judaism and Christianity, both which did have parts that dictated how to treat others,  with the Jewish law you have parts that dictated how a Jew should live, it never gives mention to how a none Jew should live their life. Judaism wanted their people to live separate, not make demands on the rest of the world to satisfy their faith. Christianity as well tells its people to give to G-d what is his, to man what is his, and live your life within a way that is permitted within the system, that is unless the system is in direct violation of your faith (you saw this with martyrs in Rome in the advent of Christianity).

 

But Islam does not make this distinction, it tells its rulers how to rule, what their outlook should be towards others. Any land conquered under the name of Islam is held in holy trust (that has always been the core of the problem with Israel, not over some imaginary right to heritage as the “Palestinians” love to claim). To this day materials in Islamic nations speak of the part of Spain by its Islamic name, Libya’s Gaddiffi made a statement once about taking back over holy land in Spain, they were going to do so not by war, rather by using the Europeans own political correctness against them; sadly this is looking more and more probable as time goes on.

 

In Islam Sharia is the law of the land, all laws, even in more secular nations like Egypt are still very much influenced by Sharia. A good example is if you go to the most moderate of Islamic majority of states, such an Egypt or Indonesia, it is illegal for one to convert an Islamic person out of their faith, but it is 100% legal for any Islamic person to convert or proselytize one from another faith to Islam. Even divorce in Indonesia is controlled by the Islamic faith. In their 1974 Marriage Law they have laws for each faith to marry and divorce, they set up the different customs to handle divorce, but Muslims only have unwritten customary (adat) law and  Muslim religious law.

 

Another problem is honesty. Judaism and Christianity teach you should be honest, not lie, but Islam teaches it is perfectly acceptable to lie your head off, so long as it promotes Islam or is protecting you in some way. And this is not just my understanding, Islam teaches this rather plainly.

 

Holy Koran with isolated. Verse of the koran.

Quran

 

Quran (16:106) – Establishes that there are circumstances that can “compel” a Muslim to tell a lie.

 

Quran (3:28) – This verse tells Muslims not to take those outside the faith as friends, unless it is to “guard themselves” against danger, meaning that there are times when a Muslim may appear friendly to non-Muslims, even though they should not feel friendly.

 

Quran (9:3)“…Allah and His Messenger are free from liability to the idolaters…” The dissolution of oaths is with pagans who remained at Mecca following its capture. They did nothing wrong but were evicted anyway.  (The next verse refers only to those who have a personal agreement with Muhammad as individuals – see Ibn Kathir vol 4, p 49)

 

Quran (66:2)“Allah has already ordained for you the dissolution of your oaths…”

 

Quran (40:28) – A man is introduced as a believer, but one who had to “hide his faith” among those who are not believers.

 

Quran (2:225)“Allah will not call you to account for thoughtlessness in your oaths, but for the intention in your hearts”

 

Quran (3:54)“And they (the disbelievers) schemed, and Allah schemed (against them): and Allah is the best of schemers.” The Arabic word used here for scheme (or plot) is makara, which literally means ‘deceit’. If Allah is supremely deceitful toward unbelievers, then there is little basis for denying that Muslims are allowed to do the same. (See also 8:30 and 10:21)

 

This is a problem when dealing with Muslims, more so when doing this with nation states. They are taught that they can lie if it aids them, they can make treaties with none believers, these should only be used as a means to build back up strength so you can attack again. I have told many, if you hear one thing but see another, I would never go by what I hear, rather what I see.

 

Treatment of none Islamic people in Muslim Majority Nations

 

ISIS Terror (victims prepared for beheading)

 

In many places they either don’t allow other faiths to live in their land (Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, EAU), or if they do they have to live in a subservient role to Islam, Egypt, Jordan, Iraq, Iran, and the rest of the Arab world. In the past, all people not Muslim had to always stay in a submissive way, had to pay Jizyah {Jizhya} (الجزية) this was a tax all unbelievers were supposed to pay for not being Muslim. This was not so much intended as protection money, in the way of extortion, it was meant to humiliate, to show that they were beneath the Muslim’s, as such they were obligated to pay this, so they could live. Here is what the Quran says about it:

 

Quran 9:29 [Blog Editor: My Word Doc would not acquire the Arabic characters for the below translation. To read the original you will go to the LINK then scroll to this point.]

Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel subdued.

 

What effect does Islamic Migration have

 

Dr. Peter Hammond, a researcher that has spent his life studying Islamic migration, the effect on the surrounding population, the interaction of the Islamic migrants on the general population, made a rather startling and troubling find concerning their demands on the nation and the people. In his book Slavery, Terrorism and Islam he breaks down Islam’s interactions with the society around them as they grow, rather than give my own quotes, I will quote him:

 

When politically correct and culturally diverse societies agree to ‘the reasonable’ Muslim demands for their ‘religious rights,’ they also get the other components under the table. Here’s how it works (percentages source CIA: The World Fact Book (2007)).

 

As long as the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country they will be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone. In fact, they may be featured in articles and films, stereotyped for their colorful uniqueness:

 

United States — Muslim 1.0%
Australia — Muslim 1.5%
Canada — Muslim 1.9%
China — Muslim 1%-2%
Italy — Muslim 1.5%
Norway — Muslim 1.8%

 

At 2% and 3% they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs:

 

Denmark — Muslim 2%
Germany — Muslim 3.7%
United Kingdom — Muslim 2.7%
Spain — Muslim 4%
Thailand — Muslim 4.6%

 

From 5% on they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population.

 

They will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature it on their shelves — along with threats for failure to comply. (United States ).

 

France — Muslim 8%
Philippines — Muslim 5%
Sweden — Muslim 5%
Switzerland — Muslim 4.3%
The Netherlands — Muslim 5.5%
Trinidad &Tobago — Muslim 5.8%

 

At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islam is not to convert the world but to establish Sharia law over the entire world.

 

When Muslims reach 10% of the population, they will increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions ( Paris –car-burnings). Any non-Muslim action that offends Islam will result in uprisings and threats ( Amsterdam – Mohammed cartoons).

 

Guyana — Muslim 10%
India — Muslim 13.4%
Israel — Muslim 16%
Kenya — Muslim 10%
Russia — Muslim 10-15%

 

After reaching 20% expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings and church and synagogue burning:

 

Ethiopia — Muslim 32.8%

 

At 40% you will find widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks, and ongoing militia warfare:

 

Bosnia — Muslim 40%
Chad — Muslim 53.1%
Lebanon — Muslim 59.7%

 

From 60% you may expect unfettered persecution of non-believers and other religions, sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels:

 

Albania — Muslim 60%
Malaysia — Muslim 60.4%
Qatar — Muslim 77.5%
Sudan — Muslim 70%

 

After 80% expect State run ethnic cleansing and genocide:

 

Bangladesh — Muslim 83%
Egypt — Muslim 90%
Gaza — Muslim 98.7%
Indonesia — Muslim 86.1%

Iran — Muslim 98%
Iraq — Muslim 97%
Jordan — Muslim 92%
Morocco — Muslim 98.7%
Pakistan — Muslim 97%
Palestine — Muslim 99%
Syria — Muslim 90%
Tajikistan — Muslim 90%
Turkey — Muslim 99.8%
United Arab Emirates — Muslim 96%

 

100% will usher in the peace of ‘Dar-es-Salaam’ — the Islamic House of Peace — there’s supposed to be peace because everybody is a Muslim:

 

Afghanistan — Muslim 100%
Saudi Arabia — Muslim 100%
Somalia — Muslim 100%
Yemen — Muslim 99.9%

 

Of course, that’s not the case. To satisfy their blood lust, Muslims then start killing each other for a variety of reasons.

 

I think one of the best quotes I have seen concerning this came from Leon Uris:

 

‘Before I was nine I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; and the tribe against the world and all of us against the infidel. – Leon Uris, ‘The Haj’

 

Conclusion

 

Western-Muslim-parents

 

So are all Muslims bad? Of course not, they are far from it, the problem we have today is the press is so intent on covering for all Muslims, they either ignore or disregard the bad ones in their midst. In other cases they try to say incorrectly that groups like ISIS are not true Muslims, I would beg to differ, they are actually doing nothing that Mohammad himself did not do.

 

In other cases they give such low expectations, when places like Saudi Arabia say that women now have more value than livestock, the left, and feminist groups for their part,  explode in their praise of them for their enlightened outlook.

 

Sadly these are the same feminist and women rights activist that seems to think what they stand for has no bearing with Islamic women or for Western Women victimized by Muslim males. Rather than stick up for the Western woman being attacked, sexually molested and raped by Muslim migrants, they attack them, saying it is somehow their fault, maybe they should have dressed better (we all know if it was a rape from a Western male, they would never dream of making this claim, nor would they blame the woman for such a heinous act).

 

Islamic Terrorism USA

 

You see this in the press, rather than say there is a terrible problem with Islam, they blame it on the economy, lack of jobs, western ideology being forced on these people. And while doing this they ignore there are two forces at work within Islam in the present, one is looking to bring it back to its more radical ways when it was at its height of power, they dream of recreating a Caliphate again.

 

The press ignores this, makes excuses for them, or says look at the peaceful Muslims, what about them? The bottom line is like with many groups, the peaceful ones are irrelevant, they do nothing to change the narrative of the radicals, thus giving them power by their silence, the ones that do speak are quickly attacked or dispatched. In other cases people who speak out are ostracized by the whole, they are seen as somehow being traitors to Islam.

 

In the same way that you had peaceful loving Germans in WW2, peaceful loving Chinese under Mao, and equally loving peaceful people under Stalin, they did not drive the narrative, their silence gave power to the minority, end the end they were irrelevant to what was driving the narrative in those countries.

 

By not exposing this you give power to the radicals and make the voices of the peace and change even more irrelevant. In the cold war, we did not say look at how peaceful the majority of the Russians were, we took groups that wanted to bring freedom to the Soviet system, recognized and gave them both support and resources to do something, they soon became many and changed the system from within. We need to do the same with Islam, stop empowering tyrants and radical dictators, we need to start aiding the ones trying to drag Islam into the 21 century.

 

President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi – Egypt

 

You do have heroic people within the Islamic community, Egypt’s ruler openly called for a dialog to bring Islam into the modern age, to reject the violent bent seen in the Koran. Sadly most of the press was silent, the Western powers, for the most part, ignored this, under Obama instead we have catered to the more violent, then ignoring the radicals, calling them JV or amateurish; while the US has changed this outlook under Trump, seems he is more willing to push to call out the radicals, to be fair he is also willing to embrace the ones that started most of this last wave of radicalness, the Saudi’s.

 

But then even within a society as closed off and radical as Saudi Arabia is, we see cracks in that growing within that society as they try to move more towards getting away from their radical ideology. Today there are calls for women to drive, openly having a dialog with Israel, actually allowing Jews within their nation and having leaders go to Israel. The Saudi’s and other more orthodox Islamic states seem to be changing, but then there are pulls from nations like Iran that are pushing to bring more fundamentalism, just what they see as the proper way.

 

Islam can pull itself from the past, but if it does not, we need to be ready to call it out for this, not make excuses for them. We need to see support, aid and giving open alliance to leaders that are pushing for a more modern view of Islam, openly call out the ones that aren’t, and in nations like Saudi Arabia and the other nations around them, we need to let them be on notice, now more is the West going to turn a blind eye towards spreading of radicalism, but we will be quick to notice and praise when they make moves to stop it.

It could be a little more or a little less, but Hannity definitely speaks the 90 percentile range) of the FBI is not corrupt blaming 7th Floor FBI management.

 

Examples of FBI 7th Floor Nefariousness:

 

 

 

 

I am beginning to believe the culture of corruption at the FBI is far worse than a mere 7th Floor containment. This Gateway Pundit report on FBI corrupt practices is one example of a larger corruption culture.

EXCLUSIVE: FBI Must “Sequester All” Information Related to Fraudulent Carter Page FISA Warrant Indicating Related Indictments May Be Voided

Obama Deep State

 

It’s about time.  The FISA Court’s communication yesterday indicates that the Deep State’s Carter Page FISA warrants were illegal and the related indictments may be voided.

 

An individual with the Twitter name of Undercover Huber tweeted out some interesting tweets about the FISA Court’s document regarding handling and disposition of information this week.  After the recent DOJ IG report that showed that the four FISA warrants taken out on Carter Page and used to legitimize spying on candidate and then President Trump had numerous material issues, the FISA Court is finally taking action.

 

Undercover Huber started his account when Jeff Sessions asked US Attorney John Huber to look into the Clinton Foundation’s crimes in 2017.  Huber eventually completed his efforts without investigating anything.  It was a total head fake by Sessions and Huber to calm demands from conservatives.  The only fortunate result from all this is the twitter account of Undercover Huber which often has some outstanding tweets.  Yesterday was another example of this from Undercover Huber.

 

The FISA Court acknowledges that the last two of the four Carter Page FISA warrant applications were fraudulent.  This means that the other two most likely are as well:

 

In his next two tweets Undercover Huber notes that the Court is asking the FBI to sequester the data and information related to the Carter Page FISA warrants.  Undercover Huber suggests that actions in any cases that relied on any of the ‘fruit of the poisonous tree’ could be overturned, including indictments from the corrupt Mueller gang:

 

 

We really don’t know if the Durham investigation is another head fake like the Huber non-action.  What we do know is that members of the Obama administration illegally spied on the Trump team before and after the 2016 election.

Gun Control: The Die Is Cast


Virginia gun-grabbing legislation and Dem Party propaganda following the pro-gun protests demonstrates more tyrannical measures are forthcoming. Gun-grabbing and the examples of Dem Party lies during the Impeachment fiasco appears to be the continuing Dem modus operandi to terminate American Liberty and Freedom. To preserve the Republic vote the Founders’ Constitution. If Dem corruption prevails, YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO!

Gun Control: The Die Is Cast  

Free Americans Don’t Submit to Tyrannical Fiats

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 1/22/2020 1:30 AM

 

“One of the greatest delusions in the world is the hope that the evils in this world are to be cured by legislation.” ~ Congressman Thomas Brackett Reed (1886)

 

Over the past five decades, the anti-American, anti-firearms tyrants have been forcefully striving in both Congress and States’ legislatures to suppress and completely eradicate anyone’s ability to exercise their right to keep and bear arms and to self-defense under the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, and recently, in this month of January, the people of Virginia experienced the consequences from giving Democrats full control over all three branches of government. Their first order of business was to pass a series of vindictive, retributive proposals out of committee that are aimed at the normal population of the state, starting with firearms and the law-abiding citizens who own them, and this gives us all a glimpse of what is ahead for America, during a juncture in history that is our most dangerous time for the Bill of Rights and individual liberty.

 

Lobby Day on January 20th has been a tradition in Virginia for several years now, whereupon its citizens take up issues and grievances with their lawmakers, and as such, it was only natural that, upon hearing of the egregious new “gun control” proposals, thousands of American patriots across Virginia and the entire country decided to descend on the Capitol in Richmond to decry such illegitimate and illegal actions, and the tyrannical process that tried to justify them.

 

Virginia State Senator Amanda Chase openly carried a .38 caliber firearm in a custom holster, on January 15th 2019, as she presented her pro-gun bills to a Senate committee. She explained, “It’s a deterrent for over-exuberant folks” when she was questioned over openly carrying a loaded firearm into the Senate committee meeting, as numerous other legislators had been doing for years, as permitted under existing Virginia law.

On January 16th, the Democratic Party majority in the Virginia state Senate passed bills that required: universal background checks; limited firearm purchases to one a month; gave illegitimate powers to local governments to ban weapons; and imposed a permanent ban on carrying firearms inside the Capitol and legislative building, essentially seeking to eradicate current state law that permits it. They reciprocated as expected to Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety organization, that had donated a total of $2.5 million specifically to see this gun control agenda come to fruition.

 

They are even seeking to forbid the private transfer of firearms, which also violates our right to own property and dispense of it as we choose, under the 5th Amendment . Their attacks on the “gun show loophole” is simply arbitrary and tyrannical nonsense. It is the Democratic Party communists’ precursor to firearm licensing and confiscation, and when all the firearms are accounted for in a database somewhere, they can readily be confiscated on the assigned day.

 

It’s worth noting that any “law” that attacks the weapon rather than the crime or the criminal is one that is illegitimate, since it must automatically falsely assume that anyone carrying any weapon is doing so for a malicious and criminal purpose. Likewise, permits, taxes and other such restraints on firearms unfairly impede and infringe on the rights of poor people in exercising this right. Designers of such “law” assume the worse of people and deny that anyone might be just an innocent, good man going armed for the lawful purpose of self-defense. Nowhere in the Constitution does it say that a person can keep and bear arms if he meets certain standards first; the Second Amendment carries absolutely no qualifiers.

 

Several previous statements from Democratic lawmakers had indicated that this was the direction they would go, and in fact, they made no secret of it during their campaigns. It was with this in mind that the Virginia Citizen’s Defense League organized a peaceful rally scheduled for January 20th and Lobby Day, with the stated intentions of dissuading lawmakers from pursuing this illiberal, gun-grabbing agenda. Also, this foreshadowing of tyranny to come prompted 100 of Virginia’s counties to declare themselves “Second Amendment sanctuaries”.

 

The people weren’t quite fully antagonized until these bills were actually passed and sent forth. And they were further antagonized, when Governor Ralph Northam used a manufactured crisis to issue a Declaration of Emergency — Executive Order 49 — and an illegal and UnConstitutional temporary gun ban, that also included knives and sticks from January 17th until 5:00 PM January 21st; and some within his camp suggested the National Guard might be used to enforce it. Northam used the highly timely and suspicious and questionable arrests of six “suspected neo-Nazis” in the four days prior to the rally, including a Canadian army reservist with supposed ties to “hate groups”, which given Canada’s current leftist nature could only mean those standing for liberty.

 

Northam’s “state of emergency” claim was challenged by Gun Owners of America and the Virginia Civil Defense League, through an emergency injunction filed against the governor. Lobby Day has been attended for years by the very same people Governor Ralph Northam tried to paint as “radical, right wing extremists” and “violent white supremacists” with the help of the Leftist media in America, such as MSNBC and CNN and ABC “news” networks. And, it is at this point one must certainly wonder what actual good comes from lobbying, when your so-called “representatives”, the Court and the governor are traitors to the Constitution and the people of Virginia and America, all too ready and willing to impose their lawless tyranny.

 

As noted before the Virginia State Supreme Court, which later upheld the ban, in 2012, the General Assembly specifically forbade the Governor by law from using a declaration of emergency to ban firearms.

 

Whatever Northam hoped to accomplish, his actions only ensured that thousands of good, decent and fine American Patriots from all across America would arrive, openly displaying military-style semiautomatic rifles and “Guns Save Lives” stickers, chanting “USA” as they waved “Come and Take It” banners and sang our National Anthem.  And by 10:30 AM on the morning of the 20th, fifty-five hundred were already inside the “Cage” erected around the Capitol by authorities. By the middle of the day, almost 60,000 total were in the Capitol area protesting [police estimates place the number closer to 30,000], and they were peacefully demanding these Democratic Party anti-Second Amendment proposals and “laws” be stopped from going any further.

 

As reported by the NYTs, Teri Horne, of Quitman, Texas, arrived with about three dozen women from the Open Carry Texas organization. They drove twenty-four hours ‘to support the people in Virginia’, as they stood armed on the sidewalk across from the entrance to the Capitol grounds. Ms. Horne was armed with a Smith and Wesson M&P 15T rifle, toting a Texas flag, too.

 

Another pro-gun protester, Logan Smith, of Indianapolis, said: “It matters to me back home. Seeing stuff like this (gun control legislation) being pushed, it doesn’t sit well.”

 

Sheriff Scott Jenkins of Culpeper County, Virginia, an outspoken longtime gun rights advocate, spoke to the gathered crowd and offered the following: “I ask you all to return to your homes and ask your elected officials, where is the line they will not cross?”

 

Not one violence related arrest occurred during the entire day, and the protest did not grow heated, despite Gov. Northam’s and law enforcement’s warnings of out-of-state “hate groups”, militias and angry, violent neo-Nazis descending on Virginia, repeated frequently and loudly by the media. There was one arrest that resulted from a young lady’s refusal to remove the bandana from her face, violating Virginia’s laws against masking one’s face.

 

It’s a curious matter to hear Northam decry violence, when he and his supporters and staff have spent decades doing violence against Christianity, decency and common sense, investing their life’s work to destroying and dismantling America, as they consistently attempt to intimidate conservative Americans. Let’s not forget, Gov. Northam is the same man who publicly advocated murdering “unwanted” babies even after they had been placed alive on the delivery room table; he and his party are lovers of death, master manipulators and propagandists accustomed to getting their way.

 

Even more curious and insidious, from approximately 5:54 PM January 16th through the 20th, a U-28A , a manned, airborne intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, single engine, modified Pilatus PC-12 aircraft, under the Air Force Special Operations Command, was spotted circling the Virginia Capitol. It was tracked to Camp Peary, near Williamsburg, Virginia, that plays host to the CIA’s covert training operations at “The Farm” and the Defense Intelligence Agency’s Defense Clandestine Service.

 

Although James Madison and Thomas Jefferson were discussing the federal government in the Kentucky and Virginia Resolutions, they wrote, these resolutions’ words can equally apply to the states. They state: “Resolved, That the several States composing the United States of America, are not united on the principle of unlimited submission to their General Government … and whensoever the General Government assumes undelegated powers, its acts are unauthoritative, void and of no force.”

 

Just as three thousand WWII Veterans used their Second Amendment right, to stop a corrupt Sheriff and 200 deputies from stealing an election in Athens, TN in 1946 and Monroe, North Carolina’s Black Guard used firearms to defend themselves from a violent, murderous Ku Klux Klan chapter in the 1960s, each and every single U.S. citizen has the absolute right to defend themselves against any criminal attack and any act of tyranny by any government entity, be it federal or state. Similarly one can exercise this right of self-defense to repel any group that advocates and uses violence in attempts to forcefully subjugate others, in the manner that today’s New Black Panthers advocate for the murder of white people at every opportunity and Antifa Communists call for killing and/or “re-educating” conservatives, Republicans and Trump supporters, by use of force. This Second Amendment right — this God-Given Right — cannot be abrogated or eradicated by any majority’s man-made “law” designed to end one’s liberty.

 

Several other states have either already passed extreme anti-firearm legislation, similar to Colorado, or they are moving to do so, like Georgia, Florida, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Hawaii and several others. One should also note that approximately 110 “gun laws” have been proposed in Congress already this year.

 

So no one should be resting easy, simply because this rally went off without any major confrontation. Governor Ralph Northam and his Democratic Party communist cronies listened and they are unimpressed and moving ahead with the gun bills, business as usual, as though nothing has happened. Anyone who still thinks the normal rules of governance are in play is denying the new reality, that the Democrats of today are beyond reason, and Northam and his leftist cabal, the chattering globalists of Virginia, are not to be trusted or respected, and they will remain unmoved by any pleas to guard Constitutional norms, the Bill of Rights, individual rights.

 

America has entered a post-Constitution era, or so it seems, whereby a new template is forming for fascist state governments in any of the fifty states to suppress our individual liberty and completely control their people, since freedom and liberty mean nothing to these new Democratic Party communists and statists, who act like rulers rather than representatives of the people. This is the most important issue in the nation, as America witnesses Machiavellian politics and actions, that have taken the situation in our country beyond the pale, the most dangerous times of our history, whereby our system fails us and tyranny is taking the day. And with no relief found in a failed system, by way of representatives, courts, and even elections, we are left alone to our own devices and days that demand the Tree of Liberty be Watered with the Blood of Tyrants, as we are unwilling to submit to illegitimate, illegal and tyrannical fiats.

 

[Blog Editor – a history to present lesson about Dem-communist repression:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Second Amendment’s primary function is to serve as an affirmation of the people’s right to fight off any tyrannical government or force, both foreign and domestic, and the Framers of the Constitution wrote it in a direct response to the tyranny the early Americans had experienced at the hands of the British, not as a hunting license. In Federalist Paper No. 46, James Madison wrote that the Constitution preserves “the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every nation … [where] the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.” And Thomas Jefferson concluded: “What country can preserve its liberties if its rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms.”

 

The die is cast in Virginia and across America, and this rising trend towards government overreach, violating the Bill of Rights and tyranny will not stop, until the American people place some well-deserved fear in the hearts and minds of these anti-American legislators, all across the country, bringing them to the full realization that they do not rule over the people. If that ultimately means bloodshed, so be it.

 

The right to keep and bear arms is imperative to the God-given Right of every man, woman and child to be free of the evil tyrants who walk the halls of government.

 

The law violated and ignored, moral persuasion constantly falling on deaf ears, and freedom and liberty at stake. The only thing left is the bullet.

Donald Trump and Religious Liberty

 

By Mark David Hall

January 20, 2020

The Imaginative Conservative

 

Many of America’s founders defended religious liberty, believing it grounded on the duty men and women have to worship their Creator. As late as the 1990s, Democrats and Republicans were able to work together to protect that liberty, but unfortunately, the political left has begun to abandon religious freedom.

 

Government and Liberty The featured image is a study for a mosaic in the Wisconsin State Capital, “Government and Liberty” (c. 1912), by Kenyon Cox (1856-1919), courtesy of Wikimedia Commons.

 

As the 2020 presidential campaign heats up, conservatives would do well to reflect on two important speeches made last fall that were virtually ignored by the media. In September, President Trump gave an excellent address at the United Nations where he made it clear that religious freedom is not just an American constitutional right, it is a God-given right that should be respected across the globe. A month later, Attorney General William Barr made virtually the same argument in a speech at the University of Notre Dame.

 

As late as the 1990s, Democrats and Republicans were able to work together to protect religious liberty. Most notably, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 passed in the House without a dissenting vote, was approved 97 to 3 by the Senate, and was signed into law by President Bill Clinton.

 

Unfortunately, the political left has begun to abandon religious freedom. The Obama Administration showed little concern for religious liberty when it required businesses to provide contraceptives and abortifacients to employees, even when business owners had religious convictions against doing so. It also offered a rare challenge to the doctrine of ministerial exception, a legal protection which holds that religious groups should be free to choose, in the words of Chief Justice John Roberts, “who will preach their beliefs, teach their faith, and carry out their mission.”

 

Not to be outdone, then-presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke announced in October that churches that hold disfavored views on same-sex marriage should lose their tax-exempt status. He apparently views this important religious liberty protection as a “reward” that can be withdrawn when the government disagrees with the theology of a church, mosque, or synagogue.

 

In the academy, Professors Marci Hamilton, Brian Leiter, Richard Schragger, John Corvino, Micah Schwartzman, and others have made well-publicized arguments criticizing religious liberty. These scholars have penned multiple works with titles such as Why Tolerate Religion? and “What if Religion Is Not Special?”

 

In his United Nations speech advocating religious liberty, President Trump made it clear that religion is, in fact, special. He observed:

 

The United States is founded on the principle that our rights do not come from government; they come from God. This immortal truth is proclaimed in our Declaration of Independence and enshrined in the First Amendment to our Constitution’s Bill of Rights. Our Founders understood that no right is more fundamental to a peaceful, prosperous, and virtuous society than the right to follow one’s religious convictions.

 

He is absolutely correct. As I argue in my recently published book Did America Have a Christian Founding?, Americans embraced a robust view of religious liberty precisely because they believed that it was a God-given right. Colonial leaders such as Roger Williams, William Penn, Elisha Williams, Samuel Davies, Isaac Backus, and John Leland regularly made biblical and theological arguments to support this freedom. So did the civic leaders who crafted our constitutional republic.

 

Many founders believed that religious liberty is grounded on the duty men and women have to worship their Creator. A fine example of this is George Mason’s 1776 draft of Article XVI of Virginia’s Declaration of Rights:

 

That as religion, or the duty which we owe to our divine and omnipotent Creator, and the manner of discharging it, can be governed only by reason and conviction, not by force or violence; and therefore that all men should enjoy the fullest toleration in the exercise of religion, according to the dictates of conscience, unpunished and unrestrained by the magistrate [emphasis added].

 

Mason’s draft of Article XVI was reprinted throughout the states and had an important impact on subsequent state constitutions and the national Bill of Rights. But it was not the draft that became law. James Madison, in his first significant public act, didn’t deny that individuals have a duty to worship God, but he objected to the use of “toleration” because it implies that religious liberty is a grant from the state that could be revoked.

 

The Virginia Convention agreed with Madison and amended Article XVI to make it clear that “the free exercise of religion” is a right, not a privilege given by the state. Like Virginia, the Massachusetts Constitution of 1780, which was largely drafted by John Adams, grounds religious freedom in the “duty of all men in society, publicly and at stated seasons, to worship the Supreme Being, the great Creator and Preserver of the universe.”

 

President Washington agreed with Madison that it was far too late in the day to speak of religious “toleration.” In his wonderful 1790 letter to the “Hebrew Congregation” in Newport, Rhode Island, he noted that all citizens

 

possess alike liberty and conscience and immunities of citizenship. It is now no more that toleration is spoken of, as if it was by the indulgence of one class of people, that another enjoyed the exercise of their inherent natural rights. For happily the Government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance requires only that they who live under its protection should demean themselves as good citizens, in giving it on all occasions their effectual support.

 

Like Mason, Madison, Adams, and Washington, President Trump and Attorney General Barr recognize that religious liberty is a God-given freedom that must be robustly protected, both in America and throughout the world. As we contemplate who we should vote for in November, we should remember which political party is most committed to protecting what many founders called “the sacred right of conscience.”
