Pakistani Christians: Voiceless and Leaderless


Several days ago, Shamim shared about the U.S./Pakistan foreign affairs dispute over the State Department placing Pakistan on a special watch list relating to violations of religious freedom.

 

Shamim is a brave Pakistani Christian willing to criticize Pakistan’s lack of human rights against religious minorities. In Pakistan if you are not a Sunni Muslim, you can expect horrid discrimination up to and including violence, rape or even murder. Pakistani victims of this designation are often ignored in the legal system and oft times face the law for reporting victimizing crimes.

Pakistani Christians: Voiceless and Leaderless

ISLAMABAD: There is an uproar in Pakistan after placing its name on a Special Watch List by the United States on the issue of religious freedom and Pakistan rejected U.S. decision and considered it as “Politically motivated”. Pakistan said on Friday that it “rejects the U.S. designation” and that the report is “not based on objective criteria”. “This placement on special watch list is a new categorization and we would be seeking clarification from the U.S. regarding its rationale and implications,” a statement from Pakistan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said.

 

“It is surprising that countries that have a well-known record of systematic persecution of religious minorities have not included in the list,” the statement added. “This reflects the double standards and political motives behind the listing and hence lacks credibility.”

 

Earlier in a statement, issued on Thursday, January 4, 2018, the U.S. state department added Pakistan to a Special Watch List, while re-designating a group of other countries as being of “particular concern” on the issue of religious freedom. The State Department spokesman, Heather Nauert said in a statement that the number of governments infringe upon individuals’ ability to adopt, change, or renounce their religion or belief.” “In for too many places around the globe, people continue to be persecuted, unjustly prosecuted, or imprisoned for exercising their right to freedom of religion or belief”.

 

Under the International Religious Freedom Act of 1998, the U.S. annually designates countries of particular concern, and Thursday’s statement re-designated Burma, China, Eritrea, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, Saudi Arabia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. “The Secretary also placed Pakistan on a Special Watch List for severe violations of religious freedom,” Nauert said.

 

Let me tell you; though it makes no difference if the U.S. places Pakistan on a Special Watch list, but there are some facts which cannot be denied. Pakistan was declared an Islamic Republic where both the President and Prime Minister were required to be Muslims and Islam was the state religion. It promotes a certain Islamic mindset and the constitution called for the setting up of a Council of Islamic Ideology, comprising religious scholars and experts, to enforce the repugnancy clause. And number of discriminatory laws e.g. blasphemy laws are added in the constitutions against religious minorities and thus minorities are being targeted and facing challenges in Pakistan.

 

Now it is not only the matter of religious freedom for minorities but women are also suffering the same. Pakistan is the fourth worst country for women according to recently released ranking of the Women, Peace and Security Index. Isn’t it a fact that minorities in Pakistan are being unjustly prosecuted, or imprisoned for exercising their rights to freedom of religion or belief? According to the World Report 2017, at least 19 people remained on death row after being convicted under Pakistan’s blasphemy law and hundreds awaited trial. Most of those facing blasphemy are members of religious minorities, often victimized by these charges due to personal disputes. The government continued to actively encourage legal and procedural discrimination against members of the Christians and Ahmadi religious community by failing to repeal discriminatory laws. Most recently, a week before Christmas celebrations two suicide bombers attacked a Church packed with worshipers on Sunday in Quetta, killing at least nine people and injuring at least 35 others, several critically.

 

Suspects accused have no hope

 

Earlier former parliamentarian raised question on unequal, unjust role of law by the judiciary and authorities. Pakistan Today reported, “Former MP, Sindh Assembly Saleem Khokhar has demanded the release of 40 suspects in the Youhanabad lynching incident in a letter addressed to the Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi. Khokher said that just like the Faizabad agreement, where all the cases were dropped against the protesters, the Youhanabad suspects should be released as soon as possible.” “Just because we don’t have weapons and that we are a minority, the state won’t do an agreement with us,” he questioned? He demanded that the same law should be applied to the Tehrik-e-Labaik Ya Rasool Allah Chief Khadim Rizvi and his supporters. They were involved in killing a police officer and beating several others, while also harming the state property, why were they all released? Since I am writing this there is no response from the authorities yet and two of the suspects [Indaryas Ghulam & Usman Masih] of Youhanabad have died during their custody and third one on the row.

 

The Christian community is one of the most persecuted minorities in Pakistan with a sudden surge in riots, mob lynching, target killings and bomb blasts targeting their congregations and Churches in the recent decade. And there is no rule of law and freedom and manifestation of religion and expression. This is very unfortunate that this community either cannot produce any visionary leader to fight for their rights or there are many so called leaders and thus they remained voiceless since partition of the subcontinent. However, I feel that there is a bigger need to look inward to ensure the rights and freedom of religious minorities, especially Christians.

Islamo-Reality! Muslim Brotherhood Terrorism


John R. Houk

© December 31, 2017

 

The Muslim Brotherhood (MB) is an Islamic terrorist organization. Anyone who tells you different is a gullible Leftist, a lying Leftist or deceiving Muslim Apologist – cough … can you say, “CAIR”?

 

Paul Sutliff has put together an informative video exposing the nefarious terrorist nature of the MB. You need to watch the Sutliff video (POSTED BELOW!) to understand the reason that the State Department must add the MB to its terrorist list.

 

Senator Cruz in the Senate and Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart in the House, have introduced a Bill that would force the State Department to declare the MB a terrorist organization.

 

Here’s the text from the Senate version of S.68 — 115th Congress (2017-2018):

 

To require the Secretary of State to submit a report to Congress on the designation of the Muslim Brotherhood as a foreign terrorist organization, and for other purposes.

 

IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES

January 9, 2017

 

Mr. Cruz (for himself, Mr. Hatch, Mr. Inhofe, and Mr. Roberts) introduced the following bill; which was read twice and referred to the Committee on Foreign Relations

 

A BILL

 

To require the Secretary of State to submit a report to Congress on the designation of the Muslim Brotherhood as a foreign terrorist organization, and for other purposes.

 

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

 

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

 

This Act may be cited as the “Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act of 2017”.

 

SEC. 2. SENSE OF CONGRESS.

 

It is the sense of Congress that—

 

(1) the Muslim Brotherhood meets the criteria for designation as a foreign terrorist organization under section 219(a) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1189(a)); and

(2) the Secretary of State, in consultation with the Attorney General and the Secretary of the Treasury, should exercise the Secretary of State’s statutory authority by designating the Muslim Brotherhood as a foreign terrorist organization.

 

SEC. 3. REPORT ON DESIGNATION OF THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD AS A FOREIGN TERRORIST ORGANIZATION.

 

(a) Definitions.—In this section:

(1) APPROPRIATE CONGRESSIONAL COMMITTEES.—The term “appropriate congressional committees” means—

(A) the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs of the Senate;

(B) the Committee on Armed Services of the Senate;

(C) the Committee on Foreign Relations of the Senate;

(D) the Select Committee on Intelligence of the Senate;

(E) the Committee on the Judiciary of the Senate;

(F) the Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs of the Senate;

(G) the Committee on Homeland Security of the House of Representatives;

(H) the Committee on Armed Services of the House of Representatives;

(I) the Committee on Foreign Affairs of the House of Representatives;

(J) the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence of the House of Representatives;

(K) the Committee on the Judiciary of the House of Representatives; and

(L) the Committee on Financial Services of the House of Representatives.

(2) INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY.—The term “intelligence community” has the meaning given that term in section 3(4) of the National Security Act of 1947 (50 U.S.C. 3003(4)).

 

(b) Report.—Not later than 60 days after the date of the enactment of this Act, the Secretary of State, in consultation with the intelligence community, shall submit a detailed report to the appropriate congressional committees that—

 

(1) indicates whether the Muslim Brotherhood meets the criteria for designation as a foreign terrorist organization under section 219(a) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1189(a)); and

(2) if the Secretary of State determines that the Muslim Brotherhood does not meet the criteria referred to in paragraph (1), includes a detailed justification as to which criteria have not been met.

 

(c) Form.—The report required under subsection (b) shall be submitted in unclassified form, but may include a classified annex, if appropriate.

 

So, what do you know about the Muslim Brotherhood? This is the same organization based in Egypt and supported by former President Barack Hussein Obama to literally govern Egyptians.

 

Paul Sutliff would like his video exposing the MB nature to go viral in hopes that Americans will write/call their Senator, Congressman AND the U.S. State Department to get on the ball about Islamo-Reality and the Muslim Brotherhood terrorism.

State Department Waging “Open War” on White House


Either Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is working against the Trump agenda or he is not competent enough to drain the State Department Obama hold-over swamp. I believe it is the former more than the latter. Either way, President Trump needs to fire Tillerson and get a Secretary of State that can competently execute the Trump agenda in foreign policy. ESPECIALLY as pertaining to Israel!

State Department Waging “Open War” on White House

 

By Soeren Kern

September 17, 2017 at 5:00 am

Gatestone Institute

 

  • “It’s not clear to me why the Secretary of State wishes to at once usurp the powers of the Congress and then to derail his boss’s rapprochement with the Israeli government.” — Foreign policy operative, quoted in theWashington Free Beacon.

 

  • Since he was sworn in as Secretary of State on February 1, Rex Tillerson and his advisors at the State Department have made a number of statements and policy decisions that contradict President Trump’s key campaign promises on foreign policy, especially regarding Israel and Iran.

 

  • “Tillerson was supposed to clean house, but he left half of them in place and he hid the other half in powerful positions all over the building. These are career staffers committed to preventing Trump from reversing what they created.” — Veteran foreign policy analyst, quoted in the Free Beacon.

 

The U.S. State Department has backed away from a demand that Israel return $75 million in military aid which was allocated to it by the U.S. Congress.

 

The repayment demand, championed by U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, was described as an underhanded attempt by the State Department to derail a campaign pledge by U.S. President Donald J. Trump to improve relations with the Jewish state.

 

The dispute is the just the latest example of what appears to be a growing power struggle between the State Department and the White House over the future direction of American foreign policy.

 

The controversy goes back to the Obama administration’s September 2016 Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Israel, which pledged $38 billion in military assistance to Jerusalem over the next decade. The MOU expressly prohibits Israel from requesting additional financial aid from Congress.

 

Congressional leaders, who said the MOU violates the constitutional right of lawmakers to allocate U.S. aid, awarded Israel an additional $75 million in assistance in the final appropriations bill for fiscal year 2017.

 

Tillerson had argued that Israel should return the $75 million in order to stay within the limits established by the Obama administration. The effort provoked a strong reaction from Congress, which apparently prompted Tillerson to back down.

 

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) “strongly warned the State Department that such action would be unwise and invite unwanted conflict with Israel,” according to the Washington Free Beacon.

 

Speaking to the Washington Examiner, Rep. Peter Roskam (R-IL) added:

 

“As Iran works to surround Israel on every border, and Hezbollah and Hamas rearm, we must work to strengthen our alliance with Israel, not strain it. Congress has the right to allocate money as it deems necessary, and security assistance to Israel is a top priority. Congress is ready to ensure Israel receives the assistance it needs to defend its citizens.”

 

A veteran congressional advisor told the Free Beacon:

 

“This is a transparent attempt by career staffers in the State Department to f*ck with the Israelis and derail the efforts of Congressional Republicans and President Trump to rebuild the US-Israel relationship. There’s no reason to push for the Israelis to return the money, unless you’re trying to drive a wedge between Israel and Congress, which is exactly what this is. It won’t work.”

 

Another foreign policy operative said: “It’s not clear to me why the Secretary of State wishes to at once usurp the powers of the Congress and then to derail his boss’s rapprochement with the Israeli government.”

Since he was sworn in as Secretary of State on February 1, Tillerson and his advisors at the State Department have made a number of statements and policy decisions that contradict Trump’s key campaign promises on foreign policy, especially regarding Israel and Iran.

 

August 10. The State Department hosted representatives of the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO), an umbrella group established by the Muslim Brotherhood with the aim of mainstreaming political Islam in the United States. Behind closed doors, they reportedly discussed what they said was Israel’s illegal occupation of Palestine and the removal of all Israeli control of the Temple Mount and holy areas of Jerusalem. Observers said the meeting was part of larger effort by anti-Israel organizations to drive a wedge between the Trump administration and Israel. The USCMO includes a number of organizations, including American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), which promote “extreme anti-Israel views” and “anti-Zionist” propaganda, and which support boycotts of the Jewish state.

 

July 19. The State Department’s new “Country Reports on Terrorism 2016” blamed Israel for Palestinian Arab terrorism against Jews. It attributed Palestinian violence to: “lack of hope in achieving statehood;” “Israeli settlement construction in the West Bank;” “settler violence;” and “the perception that the Israeli government was changing the status quo on the Haram Al Sharif/Temple Mount.” The report also characterized Palestinian Authority payments to the families of so-called martyrs as “financial packages to Palestinian security prisoners…to reintegrate them into society.”

 

Rep. Peter Roskam (R-IL) called on the State Department to hold the PA accountable in State Department Country reports: “The State Department report includes multiple findings that are both inaccurate and harmful to combating Palestinian terrorism…. At the highest level, the Palestinian Authority (PA) leadership incites, rewards, and, in some cases, carries out terrorist attacks against innocent Israelis. In order to effectively combat terrorism, it is imperative that the United States accurately characterize its root cause — PA leadership.”

 

June 14. Tillerson voiced opposition to designating the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization, saying that such a classification would complicate Washington’s relations in the Middle East. During his confirmation hearings on January 11, by contrast, Tillerson lumped the Brotherhood with al-Qaeda when talking about militant threats in the region. He said:

 

“Eliminating ISIS would be the first step in disrupting the capabilities of other groups and individuals committed to striking our homeland and our allies. The demise of ISIS would also allow us to increase our attention on other agents of radical Islam like al-Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood, and certain elements within Iran.”

 

June 13. During testimony to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Tillerson said he had received reassurances from President Mahmoud Abbas that the Palestinian Authority would end the practice of paying a monthly stipend to the families of suicide bombers and other attackers, commonly referred to by Palestinians as martyrs. One day later, Palestinian officials contradicted Tillerson, saying that there are no plans to stop payments to families of Palestinians killed or wounded carrying out attacks against Israelis.

 

May 22. Tillerson sidestepped questions on whether the Western Wall is part of Israel, while telling reporters aboard Air Force One they were heading to “Tel Aviv, home of Judaism.” Asked directly whether he considers the Western Wall under Israeli sovereignty, Tillerson replied: “The wall is part of Jerusalem.”

 

May 15. In an interview with Meet the Press, Tillerson appeared publicly to renege on Trump’s campaign promise to move the American embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem:

 

“The president, I think rightly, has taken a very deliberative approach to understanding the issue itself, listening to input from all interested parties in the region, and understanding what such a move, in the context of a peace initiative, what impact would such a move have.”

 

Tillerson also appeared to equate the State of Israel and the Palestinians:

 

“As you know, the president has recently expressed his view that he wants to put a lot of effort into seeing if we cannot advance a peace initiative between Israel and Palestine. And so I think in large measure the president is being very careful to understand how such a decision would impact a peace process.”

 

Critics of this stance have argued that moving the embassy to Jerusalem would, instead, advance the peace process by “shattering the Palestinian fantasy that Jerusalem is not the capital of Israel.”

 

March 8. The State Department confirmed that the Obama administration’s $221 million payment to the Palestinian Authority, approved just hours before Trump’s inauguration, had reached its destination. The Trump administration initially had vowed to freeze the payment.

 

In July 2017, the Free Beacon reported that Tillerson’s State Department was waging an “open political war” with the White House on a range of key issues, including the U.S.-Israel relationship, the Iran portfolio, and other matters:

 

“The tensions have fueled an outstanding power battle between the West Wing and State Department that has handicapped the administration and resulted in scores of open positions failing to be filled with Trump confidantes. This has allowed former Obama administration appointees still at the State Department to continue running the show and formulating policy, where they have increasingly clashed with the White House’s own agenda.”

 

A veteran foreign policy analyst interviewed by the Free Beacon laid the blame squarely on Tillerson:

 

“Foggy Bottom [a metonym for the State Department] is still run by the same people who designed and implemented Obama’s Middle East agenda. Tillerson was supposed to clean house, but he left half of them in place and he hid the other half in powerful positions all over the building. These are career staffers committed to preventing Trump from reversing what they created.”

 

Notable holdovers from the Obama administration are now driving the State Department’s Iran policy:

 

Michael Ratney, a top advisor to former Secretary of State John Kerry on Syria policy. Under the Trump administration, Ratney’s role at the State Department has been expanded to include Israel and Palestine issues. Ratney, who was the U.S. Consul in Jerusalem between 2012 and 2015, oversaw $465,000 in U.S. grants to wage a smear to oust Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu from office in 2015 parliamentary elections, according to the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations. Ratney admitted to Senate investigators that he deleted emails containing information about the Obama administration’s relationship with the group.

 

Thomas A. Shannon, Jr., a career foreign service officer who serves as Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs. Shannon, the State Department’s fourth-ranking official, has warned that scrapping the Iran deal would lead to a nuclear arms race in the Middle East. “Any effort to step away from the deal would reopen a Pandora’s box in that region that would be hard to close again,” he said. His statement indicates that Shannon could be expected to lead efforts to resist any attempts to renege or renegotiate the deal; critics of the deal say that Iran’s continued missile testing has given Trump one more reason to tear up his predecessor’s deal with the Islamist regime.

 

Chris Backemeyer is now the highest-ranking official at the State Department for Iran policy. During the Obama administration, Backemeyer made his career by selling the Iran deal by persuading multinational corporations to do business with Iran as part of an effort to conclude the Iran nuclear deal.

 

Ratney, Shannon and Backemeyer, along with Tillerson, reportedly prevailed upon Trump twice to recertify the Iran nuclear deal. The Jerusalem Post explained:

 

Washington was briefly abuzz on the afternoon of July 17 when rumors began to circulate that President Trump was eager to declare that Iran was in breach of the conditions laid out in the 2015 Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act (INARA).

 

Those receptive antennas were further heightened given the previous signals sent. After all, the State Department already released talking points to reporters on the decision to recertify Iran. The Treasury Department also had a package of fresh sanctions on over a dozen Iranian individuals and entities ready to announce to appease the hawks who were eager to cut loose from the deal.

 

But Trump didn’t want to recertify Iran, nor did he want to the last time around in April. That evening, a longtime Middle East analyst close to senior White House officials involved in the discussions described the scene to me: “Tillerson essentially told the president, ‘we just aren’t ready with our allies to decertify.’ The president retorted, ‘Isn’t it your job to get our allies ready?’ to which Tillerson said, ‘Sorry sir, we’re just not ready.'” According to this source, Secretary Tillerson pulled the same maneuver when it came to recertification in April by waiting until the last minute before finally admitting the State Department wasn’t ready. On both occasions he simply offered something to the effect of, “We’ll get ’em next time.”

NOT Fake News: Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Loretta Lynch Now ALL Under Investigation


Until some Republican members get some backbone in Congress and President Trump’s DOJ effectively drains its swamp, I will not expect any indictments for these criminals. Backbones and swamp drainage will mean indictments for Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Loretta Lynch and hopefully the last Criminal-in-Chief Obama. THEN there will be a shot to return America to the Constitutional Republic our Founding Fathers intended.

NOT Fake News: Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Loretta Lynch Now ALL Under Investigation

 

By JOSEPH CURL

JUNE 26, 2017

The Daily Wire

 

You wouldn’t know it from the mainstream media, but President Donald Trump is not under FBI investigation (repeat: NOT).

 

But you know who is? Hillary Clinton. Bernie Sanders. Loretta Lynch.

 

In early June, Sen. Chuck Grassley, chairman of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary, launched a new probe of former Secretary of State Clinton’s attempts to deflect a Bangladesh government corruption investigation of Muhammad Yunus, a Clinton Foundation donor and friend of Hillary and Bill Clinton.

 

“While secretary of state, Hillary Clinton made a personal call to pressure Bangladesh’s prime minister to aid a donor to her husband’s charitable foundation despite federal ethics laws that require government officials to recuse themselves from matters that could impact their spouse’s business,” Circa reported.

 

“If the Secretary of State used her position to intervene in an independent investigation by a sovereign government simply because of a personal and financial relationship stemming from the Clinton Foundation rather than the legitimate foreign policy interests of the United States, then that would be unacceptable,” Grassley said in a letter to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

 

“Co-mingling her official position as Secretary of State with her family foundation would be similarly inappropriate. It is vital to determine whether the State Department had any role in the threat of an IRS audit against the son of the Prime Minister in retaliation for this investigation,” Grassley wrote.

 

Also, Sanders and his wife are both under investigation over a bank loan Jane Sanders got to expand Burlington College while she was its president, CBS News reported last week.

 

Politico Magazine first reported the Sanders had hired lawyers to defend them in the probe. Sanders’ top adviser Jeff Weaver told CBS News the couple has sought legal protection over federal agents’ allegations from a January 2016 complaint accusing then-President of Burlington College, Ms. Sanders, of distorting donor levels in a 2010 loan application for $10 million from People’s United Bank to purchase 33 acres of land for the institution.

 

According to Politico, prosecutors might also be looking into allegations that Sen. Sanders’ office inappropriately urged the bank to approve the loan. 

 

And former Attorney General Loretta Lynch is now under investigation, too. The Senate Judiciary Committee last week opened a probe into Lynch’s efforts to control the FBI’s investigation into Clinton’s email scandal.

 

Grassley, along with the committee’s ranking Democrat, Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, sent a letter to Lynch asking her to lay out exactly what she did during the Clinton probe. Former FBI Director James Comey testified this month that she tried to get the FBI to downplay that probe. “At one point, she directed me not to call it an ‘investigation’ but instead to call it a ‘matter,’ which confused me and concerned me,” Comey said in his June 8 testimony before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. “That was one of the bricks in the load that led me to conclude I have to step away from the department if we are to close this case credibly.”

 

Comey said Lynch’s request “gave the impression the attorney general was looking to align the way we talked about our investigation with the way a political campaign was describing the same activity.”

 

From the nonstop coverage of Trump’s alleged collusion with Russia during the 2016 presidential election, you’d think he was under FBI investigation. But he isn’t. Instead, three big Democratic players are.

 

But you wouldn’t know that from the MSM coverage. In fact, Chuck Todd, the host of NBC’s Meet The Press, didn’t even ask Sanders about being the subject of an FBI investigation during a seven-minute interview on Sunday.

 

Par for the course.

NBC News: Documents: Hillary Clinton May Have Killed Investigations into Pedophile Ring at State Dept.


The Pizzagate scandal is largely dismissed because the alleged code words thought to be pedophilia-speak is educated speculative guessing. Unless an actual pedophilia ring was uncovered, law enforcement won’t point fingers at power Dem elites. Especially when Clinton accusers and/or allies with incriminating knowledge mysteriously die or disappear (Conspiracy websites willing to speculate on the obvious: HERE & HERE) .

 

The thing is wealthy elites have been getting away with pedophilia probably for decades. And thanks to the Wikileaks hack (whether they did it or a hacker(s) gave up info), a spotlight has been shined on the Left in relation to the Clinton Crime Syndicate (CCS).

 

Now even Left Wing NBC News is reporting on a potential CCS connection to pedophilia rings. Below is the story.

NBC News: Documents: Hillary Clinton May Have Killed Investigations into Pedophile Ring at State Dept.

 

By TIM BROWN

MARCH 30, 2017

While I am skeptical of where this will lead, it is noteworthy to see that this report comes from NBC and more specifically Chuck Todd.  In a report earlier this week, NBC reported that there were allegations that while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, the quashed investigations into a prostitution and pedophile ring that was operating inside the department in order to avoid scandal and protect high-ranking employees and an ambassador.

 

“Serious allegations concerning the State Department,” the NBC anchor said.  “According to internal State Department memos the agency might have called off or intervened into investigations into possibly illegal, inappropriate behavior within its ranks allegedly to protect jobs and avoid scandals.

 

“This concerns a time when Hillary Clinton was secretary of state.”

Flashback to June 11th, 2013 when NBC was reporting real news… Hillary Clinton was never a progressive liberal, she was never a feminist, she never cared about anyone but herself.

 

“There is an old saying in Washington that the cover-up is worse than the crime. But in this case both parts of it are disturbing,” Chuck Todd continued.

 

“Allegations of prostitution and pedophilia, and allegations that those crimes were somehow covered up or not looked into,” he continued.  “So the State Department this morning is having to respond to those claims, and those investigations involve misconduct by State Department officials, including an Ambassador and security agents attached to then-Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton.

 

“The allegations are that these investigations were whitewashed, quashed altogether, and that those orders came from high up,” he added.

 

The report then went on to state:

 

NBC has obtained documents relating to ongoing investigations into some disturbing allegations involving State Department personnel and at least one ambassador. A State Department memo says, quote, “the Ambassador routinely ditched his protective security detail in order to solicit sexual favors from both prostitutes and minor children.”

 

The memo also says a top State Department official directed State Department investigators to “cease the investigation” into the ambassador’s conduct.” It’s just one of what another document describes as “several examples of undue influence” from top State Department officials.

 

We know that since President Donald Trump has been in office that his administration has overseen quite a few busts concerning pedophiles, far more than the Obama administration.

 

We also know that Bill Clinton and others in the US government, such as Bob Menendez have close ties to or have actually engaged underage girls in sex.  In the case of Clinton there a long trail of women claiming he sexually assaulted them, as well as his ties to Jeffery Epstein, a billionaire financier formerly with Bear Stearns, was sentenced to just 13 months jail time when he was convicted of soliciting a minor for prostitution.  As Daisy Luther reported:

 

 

 

 

 

  • Passengers on the manifest were sometimes just listed by their initials since we all know that discretion is essential when you are traveling with underage girls on board a jet that boasts a large bed.

 

 

This would inevitably lead to tying Epstein to the State Department and child trafficking.  And let’s not forget that Hillary’s bestie, Huma Abedin, has a husband taht  has just stepped in it again with an underage girl.

 

Now, the question is, will President Trump not only ask his Attorney General to appoint an investigation into the Clintons, but into the Clinton State Department concerning the allegations, considering the given evidence we have of the Clintons’ ties to known pedophiles and their sordid criminal and sexual history?

Traitor Is Her Name

Hillary’s Treasonous Heart

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent: 10/15/2016 2:01 PM

 

A cold, calculating and deliberate international criminal, treason is her trade and “Traitor” is her name, a woman who has sabotaged the laws and principles of the United States of America that she swore to uphold. Some call her the “Butcher of Libya” [WND]. Whether she is undermining America’s national security through self-enriching corrupt uranium deals with Russia, making state secrets available to our enemies or arming Al Qaeda and other enemies of the United States, the anti-American radicals know her as Hillary Clinton.

 

Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or adhering to their enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.” – Article III Section 3 U.S. Constitution

 

A treacherous scheme [Powerline] started in 2005 between the Clintons, Frank Giustra [Clinton Email Investigation Timeline & The Daily Caller] – a Canadian mining tycoon and Kazakhstan’s dictator Nazarbayev [Wikipedia] – a murderer [Human Rights Foundation] and slave trader, that netted the Clintons over $145 million dollars to their “Foundation” and transferred over 25% of all U.S. uranium output to Russia in 2009 [The New American on crooked deal], and they increased Russia’s control through a 2010 deal between the Russian State Atomic Nuclear Agency (Rosatom) and Giustra and investors in Uranium One [Red State]. As Secretary of State, Hillary was supposed to get pre-approval from the Obama administration on contributions to the Clinton Foundation from foreign governments and foreign government-owned businesses, but she broke this pledge often, jeopardizing America’s national security.

 

Russia and Rosatom have a record of supporting nuclear programs [Geopolitical Monitor & Global Risk Insights] in countries that are openly hostile to the United States, such as Iran, North Korea and Venezuela. And now, America’s uranium could find its way to an Iranian or North Korean nuclear reactor and their weapons programs, thanks to Hillary and her brazen contempt for our nation’s interests and security.

 

Hillary’s numerous other betrayals of America are even more ugly, despicable and reprehensible. No crime is beyond Hillary’s imagination.

 

An intelligence correspondent, Catherine Herridge recently reported [WJ has Herridge transcript] on Fox News that Hillary specifically discussed “sources and methods” of the raid that killed 9/11 terrorist Osama Bin Laden, during a paid speech for a group of Canadian business leaders in November 2013. This was a clear violation of national security, and it resulted in the murders of some of our Middle East intelligence operatives.

 

Libya serves as a prime example of just how insignificant U.S. national security and American lives are to Hillary Clinton. At her strong insistence, America, European Union leaders and NATO falsely enacted the “Responsibility to Protect” doctrine [UN propaganda] and attacked Muammar Gaddafi [Strategic Culture Foundation], Libya’s dictator, ignoring the U.S. Congress and the UN Resolution against an offensive aimed at ousting Gaddafi [Interesting: Hillary Emails Reveal True Motive for Libya InterventionForeign Policy Journal], who had been a key counter-terrorism ally of the Bush administration. Gaddafi wasn’t killing innocent civilians, as alleged. He was killing the Islamofascists of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group and other Al Qaeda groups attempting to overthrow his secular Baathist government; it is also important to note that the U.S. had restored diplomatic relations with Gaddafi in 2007.

 

Primarily, Obama, Hillary and President Sarkozy of France wanted Gaddafi gone, in order to save Lehman Brothers Bank from reimbursing Libya over $50 billion dollars Lehman lost in “investments”. They also wanted to block Gaddafi’s plan to counter the French franc and euro with a Pan-African currency, which would have challenged Western currencies across North Africa, by seizing Gaddafi’s $7 billion dollars worth of gold and silver, and they wanted Libya’s oil to save the EU from Russia’s energy blackmail.

 

Hillary wasn’t motivated to save Libyan lives. It was pure despicable, malevolent greed motivating her, which makes the murders of Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty all the more egregious and sickening, since the Libyan adventurist folly was unnecessary and not serving the U.S.’s best interests.

 

Not only did Hillary violate U.S. Code Section 2339A, 2339B and 2778 [Statute Links to Cornell Law], by arming the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group [Gen. Flynn at Fox News & National Review] – an affiliate of Al Qaeda that was still on the US State Department’s terror list at the time, she created a covert arms program that placed Stinger-7 missiles in the hands of the Taliban in Afghanistan and Al Qaeda and the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, arming the very terrorists who had already murdered thousands of Americans.

 

From 2010 to 2012, Hillary’s State Department brokered $165 billion worth of arms sales to 20 nations, many of them hostile to America to one degree or another, whose governments “donated” (delivered bribes) to the Clinton Foundation, according to the IB Times, and she authorized $151 billion in separate Pentagon deals for 16 other nations that also “donated” to her foundation. The kickbacks she received from Marc Turi’s $300 million illegal arms deal [Red State, The Blaze & American Thinker] was nothing in comparison to the money she received from deals running the “rat-line” of weapons to America’s Islamofascist enemies, that was funded by the anti-American Islamists of Qatar, Turkey and Saudi Arabia.

 

On July 25th, 2012, according to sources in the U.S. Special Forces Command, and Lt General W.G. “Jerry” Boykin and General Michael Flynn, Taliban jihadists in Kunar province downed a U.S. Army CH-47 with a Stinger missile, identified by an entire serial number an ordnance disposal team found on an unexploded fragment of the missile casing. This Stinger was determined to be from the same lot sold to Qatar in early 2011 and the same weapons Hillary Clinton’s State Dept. sent to the Libyan Islamofascist terrorists [The Last Great Stand].

 

The Department of Justice is currently counting its 30 pieces of silver, after announcing recently that they are dropping the 2011 charges against Marc Turi, Hillary’s arms broker, for falsely listing Qatar and the United Arab Emirates as the end users for the weapons that went to Libya in 2011. Obviously, Attorney General Loretta Lynch is once more covering for Obama and “Crooked” Hillary.

 

Last month, three members of the Libyan parliament representing tribes nearly destroyed by the Islamofascists, before and after the coup that killed Gaddafi, called Hillary the “Butcher of Libya”. They charge that she did nothing to stop the Islamic militia’s “ethnic cleansing”/murder of 250,000 Black Libyans [Anti-Media] of the Tawegha tribes [Levant Report] and others, who supported Gaddafi.

 

Jaballah Al-Shibani stated [WND]: “Under Gaddafi women were free to be educated, women were not required to wear any special clothing and women were free to walk the streets … [Now] thousands of families [have been] destroyed … with women now living under Sharia law … Secretary Clinton orchestrated the plot with NATO that destroyed Libya for personal gain … Clinton and her group … aligned with the Muslim Brotherhood to control the oil fields and the oil revenue.”

 

Just as troubling, Hillary has had Huma Abedin [FrontPageMag] as her top aide for years, even though Abedin was also working for the Muslim World League [DTN] at the time, whose explicit goal is to conquer the West in the name of Islam, sympathizing with Al Qaeda and the Islamic State. A Muslim Brotherhood agent from an illustrious Muslim Brotherhood family, Abedin has been privy to an enormous wealth of information concerning strategy plans and operation details in the war on terror, which might explain how Ambassador Stevens’ secret trip to Benghazi was exposed to the terrorists.

 

Treason is burning bright in Hillary’s heart, as Americans have witnessed from her long record of reprehensible criminal acts and betrayals of America. Not only has she betrayed the U.S. to the evil, vile, militarily aggressive Ayatollahs of Iran and Russia’s Putin, but her actions as Secretary of State have already cost hundreds of thousands of lives worldwide, including American (U.S. Soldiers) lives. Her promises to secure America’s safety are empty. Her loyalties are not to America, but only to herself and her cronies, and this disqualifies her from becoming President of the United States.

Crooked Hillary: Prosecute & Lock Up

John R. Houk

© October 16 2016

 

I am taking this 2016 election cycle personally AND if you are a Conservative or a Patriot, you should take this election personally as well.

 

In 2012 Mitt Romney was the GOP nominee for President. I was not in the Romney camp during the Primaries! I voted for him anyway because President Barack Hussein Obama was and is a deceiver and liar. Indeed, Obama’s reelection in 2012 was largely predicated on the lie that the entire Benghazi debacle that resulted in four American deaths was the fault of an obscure anti-Muslim movie trailer rather than the ineptitude of lackadaisical security protection on the part of Crooked Hillary which in turn resulted in an organized predetermined Islamic terrorist attack.

 

Hillary Clinton’s ineptitude did not stop or begin with the Benghazi Massacre, but was evidenced in signing off on 20% of American uranium going to Russia via the idiotic Uranium One deal, the idiotic deal Obama-Crooked Hillary-John Kerry made with Iran and probably leaving more idiotic actions yet allow me to highlight the felonious action of setting up an illegal private server at Crooked Hillary’s private residence. AND Crooked Hillary is telling everyone she too incompetent to know the letter “c” meant CLASSIFIED data which was received and sent. And the letter “c” was too incompetent she was too incompetent to understand that unmarked data may be marked CLASSIFIED retroactively! AND SHE WANTS TO BE PRESIDENT?

 

Uranium One Hypocrisy

 

Of all the Clinton Foundation/Clinton cash scandals, the one I’ve always considered most disturbing involves the Russians gaining control over a large share of America’s uranium. Relying on a New York Times report, I wrote about this scandal here.

 

Newly uncovered State Department documents shed additional light on this scandal. But before getting to the new material, I’ll summarize what the New York Times reported.

 

What we knew already

 

In 2005, Bill Clinton and Frank Giustra visited Kazakhstan. Giustra is a massive donor to the Clinton Foundation.

 

Giustra’s goal was to buy uranium mines in Kazakhstan. To this end, he and Bill Clinton met with leaders of the Kazakhstan government.

 

As a result of the visit, Giustra got major mining concessions, which were approved by the Kazakhstan government. Kazakhstan got Bill Clinton publicly to praise its alleged progress in democracy and human rights. The Clintons received a $31 million donation to their Foundation from Giustra, along with a pledge to donate $100 million more.

 

The deal with Kazakhstan made Giustra’s company, Uranium One, a major player. It proceeded to buy large amounts of holdings in the United States, and became an attractive target for Russia. A Russian company made a hugely attractive offer to purchase the company. Uranium One agreed to the purchase.

 

The deal required approval by the U.S. government, including by the Secretary of State — Hillary Clinton. During the period when the deal with Russia was under consideration, the Clinton Foundation reportedly $2.6 million from Uranium One. Its contributions were not disclosed by the Clintons, despite an agreement Hillary had reached with the Obama White House to publicly identify all donors.

 

During this period, Bill Clinton also received $500,000 for a Moscow speech from a Russian investment bank that was promoting Uranium One stock. This was more than his usual speaking fee.

 

Hillary Clinton duly approved the deal. It made the Russian company Rosatom one of the world’s largest uranium producers and brought Vladimir Putin closer to his goal of controlling much of the global uranium supply chain.

 

The deal left huge amounts of U.S. uranium under the control of Russia. The New York Times estimates this share at 20 percent. But Peter Schweizer, the author of Clinton Cash, say that it amounts to up to 50 percent of projected U.S. uranium output.

 

What we have recently learned

 

When Hillary Clinton was questioned about the deal, she said READ THE REST (MEMO SHEDS NEW LIGHT ON CLINTON-RUSSIA URANIUM SCANDAL; By PAUL MIRENGOFF; Power Line; 8/26/16)

 

And Fox News on October 12 shows that Crooked Hillary is much closer to the Russia she accuses of hacking emails to benefit Donald Trump:

 

Shame on the New York Times. Despite leaked emails revealing collusion with the Clinton campaign that should embarrass any legitimate news organization, the paper continues to carry water for the Democrat candidate.

 

Among other fictions, the Times frequently repeats the meme that Donald Trump is in cahoots with the Russians. Wednesday, in fact, the supposed collaboration between Trump and Vladimir Putin occupies prime turf as the paper’s lead editorial. It’s time to pull the plug on this nonsense.

 

The narrative that the Russians are trying to manipulate our election in favor of Mr. Trump has proved vital cover for the damaging emails released by Wikileaks that indeed show election manipulation – by the Hillary Clinton campaign.

 

 

Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton actually does have ties to the Kremlin – ties which, had they been reported with any honesty, would have become an issue in this campaign.

 

As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton helped Russian interests, operating under a directive from Putin, buy majority ownership of Uranium One, a Canadian firm that was on its way to controlling almost half of U.S. uranium production. Expanding its access to uranium around the world had become a priority for the Kremlin; control of the raw material would bolster its opportunities to build nuclear power plants such as the Bushehr facilities in Iran and similar projects in North Korea and Venezuela.

 

In pursuit of the transaction, which required sign-off by Secretary Clinton, tens of millions of dollars flowed to the Clinton Foundation through its Canadian branch – moneys that were not reported by the foundation. Moneys, too, that violated Secretary of State Clinton’s memorandum of agreement with the Obama White House and contradicted information provided by Hillary to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

 

Not only did the Clinton Foundation benefit from ties to Russia, Bill Clinton personally collected half a million dollars at about the same time for a speech made at a forum organized by a financial firm called RenCap, whose ranks were known to include ex-KGB types hand-picked by Putin.

 

 

It’s not only Hillary Clinton who helped out Putin. President Obama has arguably given the Russian leader an enormous boost, allowing him to reassert his country’s influence around the globe even as its coffers are depleted by the collapse of oil prices.

 

Russia effectively is in control of the Middle East, dictating the terms of battle in Syria, resurrecting Bashar Al-Assad’s presidency, supplying Iran with a missile defense system designed to protect its Fordow underground uranium enrichment facility, reestablishing ties with Turkey, threatening to shoot down U.S. planes. And let us not forget that Obama stood by as Russia took over Crimea.

 

 

So, when Trump calls Putin a “strong leader”, he’s right. Putin is reprehensible, devious and undoubtedly hostile to the U.S. But let us not underestimate who has been Putin’s best bud over the past decade. It is not Donald Trump.

 

In 2011, Hillary Clinton accused Vladimir Putin of READ ENTIRETY (It’s Hillary, Obama who have boosted Putin’s fortunes, not Trump; By Liz Peek; Fox News; 10/12/16)

 

Undisclosed Secrets Enable Iranian Nukes

 

 

However, according to a think tank report, the USA and its negotiating partners agreed “in secret” to allow Iran to evade some restrictions in last year’s landmark nuclear agreement in order to meet the deadline for it to start getting relief from economic sanctions. Among the exemptions outlined in the think tank’s report were two that allowed Iran to exceed the deal’s limits on how much low-enriched uranium (LEU) it can keep in its nuclear facilities, the report said. LEU can be purified into highly enriched, weapons-grade uranium.

 

Israel and Saudi Arabia found this attitude of USA unacceptable. One senior “knowledgeable” official, however, was cited by the report as saying that if the joint commission had not acted to create these exemptions, some of Iran’s nuclear facilities would not have been in compliance with the deal by Jan. 16, the deadline for the beginning of the lifting of sanctions. The US government has said that the world powers that negotiated the accord made no secret arrangements.

 

Real concessions?

 

The United States and its negotiating partners apparently agreed “in secret” to allow Iran to evade some restrictions in last year’s landmark nuclear agreement in order to meet the deadline for it to start getting relief from economic sanctions, according to a recent think tank report.

 

The exemptions were approved by the joint commission the deal created to oversee implementation of the accord. The commission is comprised of the United States and its negotiating partners — called the P5+1 — and Iran.

 

The report, which was released by the Washington-based Institute for Science and International Security, is based on information provided by several officials of governments involved in the negotiations. The group’s president David Albright, a former U.N. weapons inspector and co-author of the report, said the exemptions or loopholes are happening in secret, and it appears that they favor Iran.

 

The report ignited a chorus of Republican criticism, including from the campaign of presidential nominee Donald Trump. His campaign sought to link the findings to Trump’s Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, who was secretary of state when secret talks were held with Iran but had left office before formal negotiations began. “The deeply flawed nuclear deal Hillary Clinton secretly spearheaded with Iran looks worse and worse by the day,” said a statement issued by retired Army General Michael Flynn, a top Trump adviser. “It’s now clear President Obama gave away the store to secure a weak agreement that is full of loopholes.”

 

The Clinton campaign did not immediately comment on the report. The White House said it took “significant exception” to some of the report’s findings, saying that the easing of sanctions was always dependent upon Iran’s adherence to the agreement. “The implementation date was driven by the ability of the International Atomic Energy Agency to verify that Iran had completed the steps that they promised to take,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters at a briefing. “That is what precipitated implementation day. Since then Iran has been in compliance with the agreement,” Earnest said.

 

Among the exemptions outlined in the think tank’s report were two that allowed Iran to exceed the deal’s limits on how much low-enriched uranium (LEU) it can keep in its nuclear facilities, the report said. LEU can be purified into highly enriched, weapons-grade uranium.

 

One senior “knowledgeable” official was cited by the report as saying that if the joint commission had not acted to create these exemptions, some of Iran’s nuclear facilities would not have been in compliance with the deal READ ENIRETY (Iran since the nuclear deal with West; By DR. ABDUL RUFF; Modern Diplomacy; 9/27/16)

 

These secret deals will not America safe from a nuclear armed Iran as Crooked Hillary claims:

 

The Associated Press reported earlier this week that a previously secret document showed that a number of restrictions imposed by last year’s nuclear deal with Iran will expire after ten years, allowing Iran to achieve a nuclear breakout time as little as three months by the end of the deal in 15 years.

 

 

One other implication of this document is its formal acceptance of Iran’s uranium enrichment program. Emily Landau, head of the Arms Control and Regional Security Program at the Tel Aviv-based Institute for National Security Studies, told the The Jerusalem Post earlier this week, the document “proves that Iran’s enrichment program has been totally legitimized by this deal.”

 

 

While the document obtained by the AP may have been secret, the idea that Iran would be able to replace old centrifuges with newer ones has been known since last year. When it wrote its assessment of the deal last year the Institute for Science and International Security took these replacements into account and estimated Iran’s breakout time at the end of the 15-year deal to be about three months. (According to the institute by year 18, Iran’s breakout time would be a matter of days.) This of course goes against the administration’s boast that the deal cut off all Iran’s pathways to a bomb for at least a year. [Emphasis added by Blog Editor]

 

 

Nor would these be the only secret documents kept from Congress. Last year there was a scandal over side deals between the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and Iran governing the inspection of military sites. According to those side deals, which were reported in August of last year, Iran, not IAEA inspectors would take samples for testing. This side deal raised questions as to how accurately the IAEA could assess suspicious activity by Iran.

 

As it happens, the Parhcin testing turned up two uranium particles last year that even the administration, in June, acknowledged came from Iran’s past nuclear research. Yet despite this find, the IAEA, in December of last year, declared its investigation into Iran’s past nuclear activities closed allowing the deal to proceed to Implementation Day and the ending of nuclear sanctions against Iran.

 

 

Taken together – allowing Iran to improve its enrichment, giving Iran control over inspections, watering down the reporting of the IAEA – we have a deal that was designed not to stop Iran from developing a nuclear weapon, but rather a deal designed to ensure that Iran is never penalized for future nuclear violations.

 

 

So yes the revelation that Iran will be able to ramp up its uranium enrichment as part of the nuclear is a big deal. But given the administration’s behavior so far READ ENTIRETY (More proof Iran Nuke Deal not about stopping a nuclear weapon; By David Gerstman; Legal In.sur.rec.tion; 7/25/16 8:30 am)

 

Crooked Hillary Broke the Law in Private Server Use

 

 

Hillary Clinton Was Trained in Classified Information

 

As secretary of State, Clinton had been trained by the Bureau of Diplomatic Security in the “Safe Handling of Information.” In addition, she was fully aware of President Obama’s 2010 executive order on “Classified National Security Information” that requires heads of departments to be informed of the requirements regarding classified information.

 

As reported by Kristinn Taylor of Gateway Pundit in 2015, Clinton received training in handling classified information as stated in the “Diplomatic Security 2009 Year in Review” booklet. Under the heading “Safe Handling of Information” on page 21, the bureau boasted of its efforts to quickly bring new Obama administration appointees up to speed on security issues.

 

 

Clinton was also given the authority “to personally classify as ‘Top Secret’ government intelligence such as the emails containing reportedly unlabeled highly classified information she received on the private home-brew server Clinton used throughout her four-year tenure as secretary.”

 

In addition to her Diplomatic Security training, Clinton, as secretary of State, was bound by President Obama’s 2010 executive order on classified information. That order “prescribes a uniform system for classifying, safeguarding, and declassifying national security information, including information relating to defense against transnational terrorism.”

 

 

Get Trained Or Lose Your Clearance and Face Prosecution

 

According to the president’s order, “Every person who has met the standards for access to classified information in paragraph (a) of this section shall receive contemporaneous training on the proper safeguarding of classified information and on the criminal, civil, and administrative sanctions that may be imposed on an individual who fails to protect classified information from unauthorized disclosure.”

 

 

Not only that, the order by the president clearly prohibits removing classified information from “official premises without proper authorization.”

 

 

Only Negligence Is Required, Not Intent

 

“None of these e-mails should have been on any kind of unclassified system,” Comey said. In addition, the FBI found that “with respect to use of unclassified e-mail systems,” the State Department “was generally lacking in the kind of care for classified information found elsewhere in the government.”

 

This is in direct conflict with federal law on the management of classified information by agency heads. But, as Comey has repeatedly said, no criminal charges can be filed because he thinks Clinton did not intentionally mishandle classified information.

 

But how can an individual endowed with classification authority and trained in handling classified information repeatedly and consistently violate that training? The president’s order clearly says … READ ENTIRETY (Documents Say Hillary Clinton Knew She Was Breaking National Security Laws; By D.C. McAllister; The Federalist; 7/7/16)

 

Rare Integrity in Obama Administration: Whistleblowers Expose that FBI & DOJ Members Crooked Hillary Exonerated by Political Order!

 

Washington, D.C. – A high-ranking FBI official has blown the whistle on what they say was a politically motivated, top-down decision to not recommend Hillary Clinton face criminal charges for her mishandling of classified intelligence.

 

The anonymous source that worked intimately on the Clinton investigation told Fox News that FBI agents working the case, as well as DOJ attorneys on the case, unanimously believed that Clinton should have her security clearance revoked, with the “vast majority” believing she should be criminally charged.
“It was unanimous that we all wanted her [Clinton’s] security clearance yanked,” the senior FBI official told Fox news. “It is safe to say the vast majority felt she should be prosecuted. We were floored while listening to the FBI briefing because Comey laid it all out, and then said ‘but we are doing nothing,’ which made no sense to us.”

 

The entire team was stunned when FBI Director Comey announced on July 5 that he would not be recommending a criminal indictment to the Attorney General’s office, according to the source.

 

“No trial level attorney agreed, no agent working the case agreed, with the decision not to prosecute — it was a top-down decision,” said the source, whose identity and actual role in the case were vetted and verified by Fox News.

 

… a number of veteran FBI agents who have come forward to rebuke Comey’s politicization of a once respected law enforcement organization.

 

“The FBI has politicized itself, and its reputation will suffer for a long time. I hold Director Comey responsible,” Dennis V. Hughes, the first chief of the FBI’s computer investigations unit, told the NY Post.

 

Retired FBI agent Michael M. Biasello also noted in the Post’s report that, “Comey has singlehandedly ruined the reputation of the organization.”

 

“The FBI could not seize anything related to the investigation, only request things. As an example, in order to get the laptop, they had to agree to grant immunity,” Napolitano said.

 

According to a report by Fox News:

In early 2015, it was revealed that Clinton had used a private email server in her Chappaqua, N.Y., home to conduct government business while serving from 2009-2013. The emails on the private server included thousands of messages that would later be marked classified by the State Department retroactively. Federal law makes it a crime for a government employee to possess classified information in an unsecure manner, and the relevant statute does not require a finding of intent.

 

Although Comey found that Clinton was “extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information,” he said “no charges are appropriate in this case.”

 

Just days before Comey’s announcement, Attorney General Loretta Lynch, who was originally appointed as a federal prosecutor by Bill Clinton, met with in secret on the tarmac of an airport runway Bill Clinton.

 

Another oddity of the investigation, signaling that it was intentionally being manipulated from above, was the fact that the FBI forced its agents and analysts involved in the case to sign non-disclosure agreements.

How an American voter could place someone like Crooked Hillary in Office is far-far beyond me?!

 

Of Interest

 

 

 


Below is an article from WND promoting a petition encouraging Congress and Donald Trump to investigate Crooked Hillary independently from the FBI. It is quite evident that all the government Branches under Obama’s Administration is so corrupt that the prosecution of actual crime will not be forthcoming.

 

In full disclosure these kind of petitions are typically fund raising ploys. It is quite obvious unless WND can collect signatures numbering in the millions such a petition will be ignored. However, this petition doesn’t seem to be a fund raiser. Perhaps in guessing, at least an outlying purpose is to collect email addresses for WND subscriptions or promotions. I urge you to sign the petition for the potential for signatures in the millions to occur. That potential outcome would boggle the mind of the Left Stream Media and the Elitist Republican Establishment.

TELL CONGRESS AND TRUMP TO INVESTIGATE HILLARY!

New demands for fresh, apolitical probe of Espionage Act violations, mishandling state secrets, destroying evidence, more


WND

October 13, 2016

 

Ever since the second presidential debate, when Donald Trump told Hillary Clinton that as president he would “instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation,” Democrats and the big media have gone wild – accusing Trump of emulating the world’s most evil tyrants and dictators, from Hugo Chavez to Robert Mugabe to Vladimir Putin, despots who routinely imprison – if not shoot – their political opponents.

 
Trump, however, claims he wants to see Clinton investigated, not because she is a political opponent, but because she has blatantly violated U.S. espionage laws, mishandled top-secret information, destroyed government files and obstructed justice.

 

Is Trump right in calling for a fresh, independent investigation of Clinton’s “situation”?

 

Sign the precedent-setting petition supporting Trump’s call for an independent prosecutor to investigate Hillary Clinton!

 

How relevant is it that, as multiple news reports confirm, “FBI agents are ready to revolt” over Director James Comey’s “cowardly” whitewash of the bureau’s investigation? Or that even the left-leaning PolitiFact website confirms 33,000 emails were indeed deleted from Clinton’s unsecure private server three weeks after she received a congressional subpoena demanding the production of her emails – an act that normally would result in being held in contempt of Congress. Or that more than half of all Americans – 56 percent according to an ABC News/Washington Post survey – believe Hillary Clinton should have been indicted.

 

With not only FBI agents and half the electorate outraged at Comey’s refusal to indict, but legal experts like Judge Andrew Napolitano openly saying “the evidence of her guilt is overwhelming” and “it was obviously a policy decision by the White House not to investigate her,” Donald Trump has promised as president to appoint a special prosecutor to conduct a complete and fair investigation – one not compromised by shameful political loyalties.

 

What do YOU think? If Trump wins, should he prosecute Hillary? Sound off in today’s WND poll

 

In light of this situation and the dangerous precedent of allowing certain “royalty” to operate above the laws that govern the rest of Americans, WND is launching an important online petition intended to show support for a truly impartial investigation of Hillary Clinton’s violation of the Espionage Act, as well as her blatant contempt of Congress in destroying 33,000 emails three weeks after they were subpoenaed by Congress.

 

“We’re taking this extraordinary editorial measure because it’s clear now no one but Trump will ever actually attempt to hold the Clintons accountable for their many overt criminal activities,” said Joseph Farah, founder and chief executive officer of WND. “We believe this is reason enough to vote for Trump. He needs encouragement to run hard, win and fulfill his promise to seek a special independent counsel to investigate and prosecute Hillary Clinton as well as to encourage contempt of Congress charges and penalties.”

 

Sign the petition calling for a new investigation of Hillary Clinton and demanding Congress hold her in contempt!

 

The petition asks Congress “to hold Hillary Clinton in contempt of Congress for purposely destroying evidence three weeks after it was subpoenaed,” and supports Donald Trump’s intention, if he is elected president, to appoint a special prosecutor to conduct a complete and fair investigation – one not compromised by craven political loyalties – into Hillary Clinton’s egregious abuse of America’s state secrets.”

 

SIGN THE PETITION NOW!

PETITION URGING SPECIAL PROSECUTOR TO INVESTIGATE HILLARY CLINTON’S CRIMES

 

WND

October 13, 2016

PETITION URGING DONALD TRUMP, IF ELECTED PRESIDENT, TO APPOINT A SPECIAL PROSECUTOR TO INVESTIGATE HILLARY CLINTON FOR VIOLATIONS OF THE ESPIONAGE ACT – AND URGING CONGRESS TO HOLD HER IN CONTEMPT FOR DESTROYING OVER 30,000 EMAIL DOCUMENTS AFTER THEY WERE SUBPOENAED

Whereas, Donald Trump, during the second presidential debate on Oct. 9, said to Hillary Clinton, “If I win, I am going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation, because there has never been so many lies, so much deception. There has never been anything like it, and we’re going to have a special prosecutor”;

 

Whereas, Trump added that not only are Americans “furious” over Clinton’s crimes, but the FBI as well, stating, “In my opinion, the people that have been long-time workers at the FBI are furious. There has never been anything like this, where … you get a subpoena, and after getting the subpoena you delete 33,000 emails and then you acid wash them or bleach them … So we’re going to get a special prosecutor and we’re going to look into it”;

 

Whereas, even the left-leaning PolitiFact website confirms 33,000 emails were indeed deleted from Hillary’s unsecure private server three weeks after she received a congressional subpoena demanding the production of her emails – an act that normally would result in being held in contempt of Congress;

 

Whereas, news reports confirm that “FBI agents are ready to revolt” over Director James Comey’s “cowardly” whitewash of Hillary Clinton’s long-term mishandling of classified information using an unauthorized private email server, with Dennis V. Hughes, former chief of the FBI’s computer investigations unit, saying, “The FBI has politicized itself and its reputation will suffer for a long time – I hold Director Comey responsible,” and retired FBI agent Michael M. Biasello adding, “Comey has singlehandedly ruined the reputation of the organization”;

 

Whereas, fully 56 percent of Americans, including many Democrats, say FBI Director James Comey should have recommended that Hillary Clinton be indicted over her intentional mishandling of classified emails while secretary of state, according to an ABC News/Washington Post survey;

 

Whereas, legal expert …  READ THE REST & SIGN!!!
