Does the average citizen truly understand the threat this nation is under? How long will it be until, just like Israel, we will experience daily terrorist attacks on American soil?
Apologist for Islamism take note, as kefirs, you will not be spared should hijrah achieve its goal–cultural conquest by migrant invasion.

Terrorists inside America plotting attacks ‘each and every single day’
by: Adam Kredo
Federal authorities have open investigations into radical Islamic terrorists in all 50 states, according to the Department of Homeland Security, which is warning that the threat of terrorism in the United States has reached an all time high with radicalized individuals in the country plotting to strike “each and every single day.”
The FBI has “open terrorist investigations in all 50 states,” according to DHS Secretary John Kelly, who disclosed on Tuesday that there have been at least 37 “ISIS-linked plots to attack our country” since 2013, a number that shows no signs of diminishing.
Kelly, in his first wide-ranging public address on the threat of terrorism in America since taking office, warned that America’s borders remain wide-open and that there is evidence terror-linked individuals are exploiting these national security weaknesses and entering the United States.

“We don’t know their intentions,” Kelly said during an address at George Washington University. “We don’t know why they’re here or why they’re coming. We are completely blind to what they’re capable of.”
Terrorist also continues to sprout inside American communities across the country, according to Kelly, who said that in just the past year, there have been “36 homegrown terrorist cases in 18 states.”
“We’ve seen an unprecedented spike in homegrown terrorism,” Kelly disclosed. “These are the cases we know about—homegrown terrorism is notoriously difficult to predict and control.”
Terrorists in the United States are plotting attacks “every single day,” according to Kelly.
“I tell you, without exaggeration, they try to carry out this mission each and every single day and no one can tell you how to stop it. No one,” he said.
The United States, he continued, is “under attack” from a wide variety of bad actors, including “failed states, cyber-terrorists, vicious smugglers, and sadistic radicals.”
“And we are under attack every single day,” he said. “The threats are relentless.”
Those who slip over the border undetected, including criminals and potential radicalized terrorists, pose an unparalleled threat to the country.
“We don’t get to vet them,” Kelly said. “We don’t know their intentions. We don’t know they’re here. They slip into our country unnoticed, living among us, and we are completely blind as to what they are capable of.”
These threats just scrape the surface of the danger posed to America by terrorists inside and outside of the country, Kelly said.
“This is all bad news, but it gets much worse,” he explained. “Experts estimate that perhaps 10,000 citizens of Europe have joined the caliphate in Syria and Iraq. Thousands more are from nations in Asia, Africa and the Western Hemisphere. They have learned how to make IEDs, employ drones to drop ordnance, and acquired experience on the battlefield that by all reports they are bringing back home.”
These highly trained terrorist fighters are likely to return to their countries of origin and “wreak murderous havoc” across Europe, Asia, and the United States, among other countries.
America lacks the ability to properly vet these individuals when they attempt to enter the country, according to Kelly, who warned that scores of radicalized individuals are trying each day to enter America.
“Many are citizens of countries in our Visa Waiver Program, they can more easily travel to the United States which makes us a prime target for their exported violence,” he said.
The threat to America “has metastasized and decentralized, and the risk is as threatening today as it was that September morning almost 16 years ago,” Kelly warned.
“We are under attack from terrorists both within and outside of our borders,” he said. “They are without conscience, and they operate without rules. They despise the United States, because we are a nation of rights, laws, and freedoms. They have a single mission, and that is our destruction.”

Image: Just 10 powerful globalist corporations control almost all the food you buy and consume

When you go into a large supermarket, the number of food options you have to choose from is almost overwhelming. Just five feet from the main entrance, shoppers are immediately inundated with Oreos, Pringles, 2-liter bottles of soda, cases of water, candy, and various other snacks. Walking through the aisles, it’s common to see waffles, salsa, yogurt, coffee, juice, various kinds of cereal, and hundreds of other foods and drinks. Amazingly, there is one thing that nearly every single item inside of a typical grocery store has in common – they are all produced by just 10 international corporations.

The companies include Nestle, PepsiCo, Coca-Cola, Unilever, Danone, General Mills, Associated British Foods, Kellogg’s, Mars, and Mondelez, and each of them employs thousands of people and profits billions of dollars in annual revenue. Below is a breakdown of each of these global corporations and what it is that they produce:

Kellogg’s

With a 2016 revenue of $13 billion, Kellogg’s is perhaps best known for cereal like Fruit Loops, Frosted Flakes, and Corn Pops. However, most people are unaware that Kellogg’s also owns brands like Eggo, Pringles, Cheez-It, Pop-Tarts, Nutri-Grain, and Vanilla Wafers. In November of last year, Kellogg’s announced that the company was pulling all of their ads from Breitbart.com due to the fact that the conservative website was not “aligned with our values as a company.” As a result, Breitbart launched a #DumpKelloggs petition and encouraged their readers to boycott.

Associated British Foods

In 2016, Associated British Foods collected a total revenue of $16.8 billion. The company owns several different brands, including Dorset Cereals, Twinings tea, Allied Mills, Westmill Foods, Speedbaker, and the retailer Primark.

General Mills

Just shy of Associated British Food’s 2016 revenue, General Mills collected $16.6 billion last year. General Mills owns many popular cereal brands such as Cheerios, Chex, Kix, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Reeses Puffs, Trix, Cocoa Puffs, and Lucky Charms. Other non-cereal brands owned by General Mills include Yoplait, Hamburger Helper, and Betty Crocker.

Danone

Danone is a corporation that is best known for yogurt. With a 2016 revenue of $23.7 billion, Danone owns Activia, Yocrunch, and Oikos, in addition to various nutrition products. Danone also owns some bottled water brands like Aqua and Evian.

Mondelez 

Mondelez owns several popular snacking brands such as Oreo, Chips Ahoy, Sour Patch Kids, Cadbury, Trident Gum, Ritz, Triscuit, and Wheat Thins. Mondelez collected $25.9 billion in 2016.

Mars

Mars is a corporation that is best known for chocolate. With $35 billion collected in 2016, Mars owns Dove Chocolate, 3 Musketeers, Milky Way, Snickers, M&M’s, Twix and several other chocolate-based snacks. Additionally, Mars also owns Uncle Ben’s rice, Combos, Starburst, and Orbit gum.

Coca-Cola

Perhaps one of the most popular corporations in existence in Coca-Cola, which owns dozens of different beverages from Spite to Fanta, Dasani to Minute Maid, Fresca to Mellow Yellow. Coca-Cola took in a whopping $41.9 billion in 2016.

Unilever

Though perhaps Unilever isn’t the most well-known corporation in existence, it owns dozens of brands that most people use on a regular basis. With a 2016 revenue of $48.3 billion, Unilever owns Axe body spray, Lipton tea, Hellmann’s mayonnaise, Dove, Degree deodorant, Vaseline and Ben & Jerry’s.

PepsiCo

The obvious brand owned by PepsiCo is the incredibly popular soft drink Pepsi. Other than soda, though, PepsiCo also owns Quaker Oatmeal, Gatorade, Cheetos, Tropicana, Tostitos, Lays potato chips, and Starbucks ready to drink beverages. PepsiCo collected $62.8 billion in 2016.

Nestle

Incredibly, the Nestle Corporation took in an astonishing $90.2 billion in 2016. In addition to popular candy brands such as Butterfinger and KitKat, Nestle also owns Gerber baby food, Perrier, Coffee-Mate, DiGiorno, Hot Pockets, Friskies and Purina.

Air Force's Airmen Partake In Training Flights With The New F-35 At Hill Air Force Base
Two Russian bombers, each capable of delivering a nuclear payload, flew within 100 miles of the coast of Alaska on Monday night before being intercepted by US fighter jets, reports Fox News.

The Two Russian air force bombers, TU-95 “Bear” Planes, were approximately 280 miles from Elmendorf Air Base in the United States when the US scrambled a team of F-22 stealth jets and E-3 airborne surveillance planes to intercept the foreign aircraft.

The US and Russian jets flew side-by-side for an estimated 12 minutes before the “Bear” bombers turned around and headed back to Asia. This is the first provocation involving the Russian air force since Donald Trump was sworn in as the nation’s 45th president.

Tensions between Washington and Moscow are at an ‘all time low’ following recent events involving Syria and the alleged Russian hacking of the 2016 US election.

Last week, as Secretary of State Tillerson was in Moscow for his first official visit, three Russian bombers flew within miles of the east coast of Japan, prompting the Japanese Air Force to scramble 14 fighter jets.

The last time Russian bombers flew off the coast of the US was July 4, 2015; timed to coincide with Russian President Putin’s phone call to then-President Obama, wishing him a “Happy Independence Day.”

According to a report by South Korea’s primary news outlet, Yonhap, the Pentagon has directed a total of three US aircraft carriers toward the Korean Peninsula, citing a South Korean government source.

Yonhap reports that in addition to the CVN-70 Carl Vinson, which is expected to arrive off the South Korean coast on April 25, the CVN-76 Ronald Reagan – currently in home port in Yokosuka, Japan – and the CVN-68 Nimitz carrier group – currently undergoing final pre-deployment assessment, Composite Training Unit Exercise off Oregon – will enter the Sea of Japan next week.  According to the senior government official. the US and South Korea are discussing joint drills, which will include the three aircraft carriers and other ships.


CVN-68 Nimitz carrier group

USS Carl Vinson, surrounded by a fleet of US warships, was sent by Washington toward the Korean Peninsula in the beginning of April.

While details are scarce, and we would urge confirmation from US-based sources, Yonhap also reports that according to the government source the operation of three aircraft carriers in the same location is unusual, and demonstrates the US commitment to North Korea.  Other sources said the Trump administration is demonstrating deterrence by acting on its behalf. “We expect it to be completely different from the previous administration.”

On Sunday, Pyongyang launched an unidentified projectile, but the test reportedly failed. South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) stated that the attempted launch was conducted from the area near North Korea’s eastern port city of Sinpo, but likely ended in a failure.

WELL, WELL, WELL! What do we have here? As many of you readers will recall, we’ve been all over the antifa girl who got rocked at the Berkeley protests this past weekend. We had her fake name (Louise Rosealma) listed in the big article, but her real name is Emily Rose Marshall. Every since she got smacked, the media has been working overtime to make this little terrorist into some kind of martyr. Virtue signallers like Raheem Kassam and Brandon Darby, people who this publication normally respects, have been crying about never hitting a woman, under any circumstances. The latter camp is goofy as hell on this issue, but the media is outright malicious.

Just read this snippet from the LA Times, in a piece designed to run Nathan Damigo (the guy who socked Ms. Marshall) off his college campus…

Damigo charged a diminutive woman who was involved in the fighting and punched her in the face, then ran away into the crowd.

“A diminutive woman.” OK. Sure. I wonder if we’ll be seeing any corrections from the LA Times and Chris “Captain America” Evans after this latest bit of evidence has come out. Guess what Precious Emily was doing all day? Throwing bottles at Trump/free speech supporters who came to Berkeley to exercise their constitutional rights. Keep in mind, this wasn’t a fight our side went looking for. Antifa showed up with the explicit intent to shut this thing down with violence.

Also, listen to this video. Right after Ms. Marshall gets cracked by Damigo, you can clearly hear a bottle break. https://youtu.be/tZPGOC7uqTE


If you look close enough, you can the bottle that broke falling out of her backpack, as documented by our own Seattle4Truth… https://youtu.be/tZPGOC7uqTE


Oh, and Reuters has a picture of her bottle as well…

You can also check out this gif, which shows that little angel Emily getting read to hit someone across their head with a fucking glass bottle

So, can this whole “you should never hit a woman” shit please go away once and for all? I’m sorry, but if a female is trying to hit me and/or my friends across the skull with a glass bottle, a little self-defense will have to come down on her, perhaps in the form of a well-placed fist.

Nathan Damigo did nothing wrong.

UPDATE: Here’s Precious Emily in a propaganda-like interview with CBS affiliate KPIX 5, which is broadcast out of San Francisco…  https://youtu.be/ukq3SGM7maU


She calls the attack unprovoked, doesn’t mention the bottles and fireworks being thrown at Trump/free speech supporters, and basically just completely lies her ass off for the whole interview. She does name the collective that she traveled to the event with, though. Here’s their logo…

Looks like a very peace-loving group, doesn’t it!

We are in a state of crisis and obviously not everyone realizes it. The underpinnings of our culture are slowly decaying by way of an external enemy slowly eating away at its foundation, the internal enemy within encouraging it, the apologists mistakenly excusing it, and the unaware blindly pursuing their own lives with no concept of the event horizon that is moving ever closer.
Excerpts from the following post address the matter with links to the entire articles. If you value the American Constitution and way of life, prepare to be outraged.

Why is the Dept. of Education Promoting Islam to School Kids?
by Dan Miller
“The U.S. Department of Education has proselytized in our public schools on behalf Islam for many years through its “Access Islam” program. Federally funded, it is directed at children in grades 5 through 12. The Christian Action Network recently demanded that President Trump’s recently confirmed Education Secretary, Betsy DeVos, terminate the program.
According to an article at Breitbart, a predecessor program began during the Bush administration in 2005. It “simply taught students about the traditions, culture, and holidays of Islam. Then, it became greatly expanded under the Obama administration. It has continued to develop, and now has had a greater, broader outreach.”
According to the linked Breitbart article, “Access Islam” is not only funded by DOE. It is also “being promoted on various websites,” Martin Mawyer, president and founder of CAN, told Breitbart News. “PBS Learning Media is one of the websites that is promoting it. The Smithsonian also promotes it, the Indiana Department of Education promotes it, and even the United Nations promotes it.”
The video features prominently a Christian convert to Islam, who declares emotionally how he has found the true religion without any “intermediaries.”

Source: News – PBS Lesson Plan Teaches Kids to Sympathize with Radical Islamic Terrorism | Heartland Institute
By Justin Haskins (thanks to) Creeping Sharia, April 13, 2017:
“The Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) is home to Big Bird, Frontline, and other “programing made possible by viewers like you,” including lesson plans instructing teachers how to show kids to be more sympathetic to radical Islamic suicide bombers in Palestine.
“Dying to be a Martyr.” That’s the name of a lesson plan offered to students and teachers at no cost by the Public Broadcasting Service, a taxpayer-funded nonprofit, and some of the material seems to encourage students to learn to sympathize with radical Islamic terrorists.
The “Dying to be a Martyr” lesson plan is offered through PBS’ LearningMedia website, “a media-on-demand service offering educators access to the best of public media and delivers research-based, classroom-ready digital learning experiences,” according to the PBS website.
The stated “objectives” for the lesson plan, which is designed for use by students in grades nine through 12, include analyzing “why the Middle East conflict began and continues today,” discussing “how religions can unite or divide people” and explaining “why individuals and groups sometimes turn to tactics of terrorism, and evaluate how terrorism affects the world we live in.”
It’s in “Part 3” the lesson plan takes a disturbing turn. First, students watch a video of 18-year-old Mohanned Abu Tayyoun, a Palestinian terrorist “who entered Israel carrying a bag of explosives with the intention of carrying out a suicide bombing.” Mohanned “wavered, however, and returned home without carrying out the mission.”
In the video, which is called by the lesson plan the “Martyrdom” video, Mohanned is interviewed from a jail cell in Israel, where he is asked why he wanted to be a suicide bomber.” More

From indoctrination to enforcement, why has this man not been stopped?
‘Shariah cop’ cracks down on Minnesota Muslims
“A 22-year-old Muslim convert has been denounced for trying to enforce Shariah law on Somali refugees living in Minneapolis, but he says he’s just trying to be a good Muslim and please Allah.
Abdullah Rashid married a Somali woman and moved from his hometown in Walton County, Georgia, to Wyoming and then on to Minnesota last year. Formerly Devon James Miller, Rashid now dresses in traditional Islamic headdress. But when he isn’t in a turban, he wears a green uniform with a patch marking him as the “religious police.”
That’s causing quite a stir, even in the Muslim enclave of Minneapolis’s Cedar Riverside community.
In a recent interview with the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Rashid said he aims to turn the city’s Cedar-Riverside area into a “sharia-controlled zone” where Muslims are learning about the proper practices of Islam and that “non-Muslims are asked to respect” it, the paper reported.
He pays regular visits to Somali households and makes sure the women are dressed in compliance with Islamic law, that no alcohol is being consumed and that nobody is interacting with the opposite sex. He is performing, in his mind, a service similar to that of the morality police who enforce Shariah in Saudi Arabia, Iran, Somalia or the Islamic State.
He claims to have 10 other men working under him to patrol the Cedar Riverside community.
There’s one problem: While Rashid says he is just trying to be a good Muslim and do right by Allah, this isn’t Saudi Arabia, or Somalia.”

Islam’s ‘manufactured refugee crisis’ revealed

‘It’s different from what the mainstream media will tell you’

The entire Western world is being swamped by an Islamic invasion. But Muslims aren’t coming in uniforms and carrying guns. They’re arriving en masse with the assistance of Western governments.

Some call it refugee resettlement. Others simply believe it is just immigration. Few are willing to call it what it is – an “act of conquest,” according to traditional Islam.

One of those few is Paul Nehlen, producer and director of the new documentary “Hijrah: Radical Islam’s Global Invasion.” Nehlen is best known as the populist Republican who challenged House Speaker Paul Ryan in a primary campaign in 2016. In “Hijrah,” Nehlen provides a compelling examination of the issues surrounding immigration and terrorism he discussed during his bid for office.

Nehlen claims establishment media are complicit in covering up the truth about what Islam truly represents.


“When the media talks about religion, they pick out the pieces they want to talk about, the narrative they want to share or spin,” he says in the film. “But what we’re going to talk about is political Islam. We’re going to talk about how Islam developed over the years, and what basic tenets of Islam have been the same from the time it was created until now. … It’s different from what the mainstream media will tell you. It’s the truth.”

The purpose of the documentary is to introduce Westerners to the double meaning in the term “hijrah.” Nehlen argues the media is eager to project an innocent meaning onto the term, which is often used to refer to the journey of the Islamic prophet Muhammad from Mecca to Medina. It can also be used in a more abstract, spiritual context as a kind of “flight from sin.”

But Nehlen says there is a more sinister meaning, as the term can also refer to conquest via immigration.

“Learning the dual meanings of the word ‘hijrah’ is critical to your understanding of the manufactured refugee crisis and the migration in the name of Allah,” Nehlen proclaims in the film.

It’s an Islamic invasion which could end our civilization forever. And it’s being enabled by the very people who are supposed to protect us. Discover the terrifying truth behind our culture’s oldest enemy and unveil the darkest treason in the history of Western Civilization. Brought to you by Paul Nehlen, the man who challenged House Speaker Paul Ryan, “Hijrah” is the most explosive documentary of the year, and it’s available now in the WND Superstore.

Nehlen is not alone in regarding Islamic immigration this way. As WND’s Leo Hohmann reported in 2014, Muslim leaders with direct connections to the Muslim Brotherhood have explained immigration is part of the movement’s strategy to take over the West.

Counter-terrorism expert and former Department of Homeland Security Agent Philip Haney, co-author of “See Something, Say Nothing,” also argued immigration is a tool Islamic radicals use to pursue their goal of conquest.

“We always have to come back again to this gravitational force of Shariah,” said Haney. “The power that drives the global Islamic movement isn’t actually jihad. It is the goal to implement global Shariah law. Jihad is the tactic that is employed via various kaleidoscopic forms by the different groups that are all seeking the same thing.”

The end goal of imposing Shariah law is the driving force behind the global Islamic movement. And Nehlen assembles reams of evidence in “Hijrah” to show how mass immigration and “refugee resettlement” are furthering the core objective of the jihadists.

“If we know [Islam] has a sizable population that believes in Shariah law over secular laws, specifically, the U.S. Constitution, why are we risking American lives by permitting the hijrah in the name of Allah to continue to our shores?” the former congressional candidate asks.

Nehlen also examines Islam itself, showing extremism, violence and a call to conquest are inherent in the faith. “Hijrah” provides an in-depth examination of Islamic history, teachings and doctrine. It’s a wake-up call for all Americans who believe Islam is just another religion, no different than any other. It includes quotations from the Quran the establishment media would like to keep hidden, including:

  • Chapter 2, verse 216: “Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not.”
  • Chapter 9, verse 29: “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 themselves subdued.”

Viewers will hear the sermons and teachings of Anwar al-Awlaki, an American Islamic lecturer who became the first United States citizen to be killed by a drone strike. Those who watch “Hijrah” will hear from a jihadist’s own mouth how the tenets of Islam not only allow terrorism, but urge jihad and violence against the infidels with the goal of subjugating them. What’s more, even the act of migration is simply a part of this overall strategy of conquest.

“Die in the performance of jihad and you are guaranteed a place in paradise,” Nehlen says in the film. “And jihad and hijrah are inseparably linked.”

Finally, Nehlen shows how refugee resettlement, far from being a charity, is a lucrative business, with federal contractors receiving hundreds of thousands of dollars from Western governments to facilitate the Islamic invasion. Among the contractors who are being heavily subsidized are many Christian and Jewish religious organizations – the very same organizations the establishment media loves to quote to claim refugee resettlement is a moral necessity. As Nehlen shows, such organizations are really just protecting their bottom line.

Western Civilization is in crisis and Americans and Europeans are looking for answers about what our civilization really faces. “Hijrah” shows why the Islamic invasion is taking place, who benefits and what is at stake. For political organizations, church groups or individuals who want to understand the clash of civilizations, this is a film you can’t miss from one of the most important political figures on the American right today.

British Role Confirmed in Trump Spying Scandal
by Accuracy In Media on April 17, 2017
A Special Report from the Accuracy in Media Center for Investigative Journalism; Cliff Kincaid, Director.
 

The British Guardian posted a report on April 13 claiming that its sources now admit that the British spy agency GCHQ was digitally wiretapping Trump associates, going back to late 2015. This was presumably when the December 2015 Moscow meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Lt. General Michael Flynn took place.
This runs contrary to the blanket nature of the denial insinuated in GCHQ’s carefully-crafted statement of March 17 claiming it was all “nonsense” and “utterly ridiculous” that they conducted surveillance of “then president-elect” Donald Trump (emphasis added). The surveillance went back a year before he became “president-elect.”
President Trump’s claim of being “wire tapped” has been vindicated. Indeed, the surveillance is far more extensive than even he suspected at the time.

Based on the new disclosures, we can safely conclude that the world’s most advanced and extensive system of computerized espionage was indeed used against him and people he worked with, for political purposes, with the knowledge and approval of top Obama officials such as CIA Director John Brennan (one major name implicated by the Guardian).
Fox News Senior Judicial Analyst, Judge Andrew Napolitano, who said GCHQ was involved in wiretapping Trump, has also vindicated. Fox News owes Napolitano an apology for yanking him off the air for a week for making that “controversial” and now-verified assertion.

 
Trump Was Right
President Trump stressed the pervasive “extent” of this Obama political “wiretapping” to Maria Bartiromo of Fox Business in an Oval Office interview on April 11 (aired April 12). “Me and so many other people” surveilled, Trump said. He explained again that he had picked up the “wire tapped” terminology straight from the headline of The New York Times (of January 20) as he has explained before (on March 15; see AIM report).
Now we’re learning that GCHQ did wiretap Trump for a year before the election. “Trump” is, of course, shorthand for Trump associates and possibly Trump himself directly, depending on context. But GCHQ is trying to put a positive spin on what it admits would be illegal spying on U.S. citizens if done by U.S. agencies.
The Guardian’s sources claim a heroic role for the British GCHQ as a courageous “whistleblower” in warning U.S. agencies to “Watch out” about Trump and Russia—but carefully avoiding mention of the U.S.’s NSA, which must be protected at all costs as part of the NSA-GCHQ spy-on-each-other’s-citizens “wiretap shell game.” (See AIM Special Report of March 18).
These sources virtually admit the mutual “wiretap shell game” by inadvertently mentioning the Trump-Russia data was originally passed on to the U.S. by GCHQ as part of a “routine exchange” of intelligence. The use of this term, “exchange,” suggests what we had previously reported—the shell-game “exchange” between the NSA and GCHQ where they can spy on each other’s citizens and deny it all. 


British Wiretapping 

Past British Prime Ministers have been implicated in various scandals involving wiretaps. Some have involved the “Echelon” global surveillance system set up by the NSA with its counterparts in the other “Five Eyes” nations—UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Any one of these countries is able to circumvent domestic laws against spying on their own citizens by asking another Echelon member country to do it for them. This is precisely the “wiretap shell game” used by the Obama administration to have British GCHQ spy on Trump, as outlined by Judge Napolitano and his sources.
To avoid unraveling the longstanding Five Eyes spying “wiretap shell game,” the GCHQ had to pretend they “routinely” came across this Trump-Russia wiretap data “by chance,” unprompted by requests from U.S. agencies (such as the NSA or CIA) or by Obama officials, working outside normal NSA chain of command on Signals Intelligence or SIGINT (as Judge Napolitano reported on March 14).
So the heroic British GCHQ comes to the rescue with conveniently “accidental” (our word) captures of wiretap communications between Trump people and sinister-sounding “Russian intelligence agents,” with the wiretaps sent here to help out the U.S. agencies. We are supposed to believe the U.S. agencies and the Obama White House just passively received this bombshell wiretap data from GCHQ, no questions asked, for over a year from late 2015 to early 2017. (The Guardian has no end date for the surveillance, such as the November 8 election, and indicates continued surveillance into the Trump transition, with the FBI “throwing more resources” into the investigation then.)
Did Obama officials ever say, “Wait! Stop sending us this material, it may be illegal!” It does not appear so. Hence, the questions that have to be asked by the House and Senate Intelligence Committees are:
Were there requests for more wiretap data on Trump and his team?
Were there requests for more complete transcripts, or even voice recordings?
This “alerting” of the U.S. on Trump-Russia communications was needed, according to the Guardian and its U.S. and U.K. intelligence sources, because the U.S. agencies were “asleep” or “untrained,” or were legally prohibited from “examining the private communications of American citizens without warrants.” But to the GCHQ, America is a “foreign” nation and evidently they think they are free to spy on Americans “without warrants.”
 

Obama’s CIA and the Anti-Trump Task Force
Previous reporting has said that an interagency task force of six U.S. intelligence agencies was set up to investigate the alleged Trump-connected names supposedly discovered in “incidental collection” of digital wiretap surveillance of Russian communications. The six agencies are said to consist of the CIA, NSA, FBI, the Justice Department’s National Security Division, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and the Treasury Department financial crimes unit.
Until now, no one has known who in the Obama administration set up the task force, who directs it, what its operating directives state, what its activities have entailed, and who it is really accountable to.
But the Guardian is now reporting that it was CIA Director John Brennan who initiated, in about August 2016, what clearly seems to be an illegal domestic investigation of the Trump political campaign, which would be prohibited by the CIA charter.
Reportedly “Brennan used [British] GCHQ information and intelligence from other partners to launch a major interagency investigation.” The infamous fake “Trump dossier” is apparently dragged in too.
Brennan then proceeded to give highly classified “urgent” briefings to individual members of the Congressional “Gang of Eight.” Beginning on about August 25, with then-Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) on that date, CIA chief Brennan claimed that the Russian email hackings of the Democratic National Committee were designed to help Trump win the election, according to The New York Times. These partisan briefings represent the politicization of the CIA under Obama, and are of dubious legality.
In September 2016, this anti-Trump intelligence task force changed the previous “incidental” collection to outright direct targeting of Trump people so that their communications with Russia were “actively monitored,” not merely retrieved retroactively in digital archives with names having to be laboriously “unmasked.” (See also New York Times January 19/20, February 14.)
Unmasking is unnecessary if one starts with the specific names of Trump personnel first, and then flags them for future surveillance, going forward in time. In that case, the “actively monitored” and flagged Trump names automatically trigger alerts in the NSA-GCHQ computers whenever the names turn up. These wiretap reports would then have been submitted to Obama officials at the level of national security adviser Susan Rice and CIA director Brennan, and perhaps to Obama himself.
Interestingly, the Guardian’s sources carefully try to avoid implicating or involving the NSA in GCHQ’s allegedly unprompted reporting on intercepted wiretap data on Trump associates. It’s the “shell game” again with the NSA and GCHQ covering for each other.


British GCHQ Director Implicated
Instead, the Guardian’s anonymous intelligence sources say that then-director of GCHQ Robert Hannigan passed on a top secret “director level” report on Trump-Russia in “summer 2016” to CIA Director John Brennan, rather than to the NSA. However, if GCHQ was using NSA’s digital wiretap facilities to “routinely” spy on Trump people, then the NSA would be implicated by the very arrangement used.
As we predicted at AIM, the unexpected sudden resignation of GCHQ director Hannigan, announced on January 23, makes him the potential villain and scapegoat. Hannigan stayed on his job until his replacement took office on April 7.
In an unprecedented BBC interview on April 5, Hannigan fired a parting shot at the Judge Napolitano and White House reports of his GCHQ’s spying on Trump. Hannigan snidely dismissed the reports, saying, “We get crazy conspiracy theories thrown at us every day. We ignore most of them. On this occasion it was so crazy that we felt we should say so and we have said it’s a ridiculous suggestion.”
The Guardian’s report refutes Hannigan, barely a week after he left office, possibly with official connivance or approval. But why is Hannigan getting being thrown under the bus so soon? Is it fear of the impending findings of U.S. Congressional and official investigations exposing GCHQ?
Such reports in the British press on highly sensitive intelligence matters surely must have been quietly cleared by the British government as a first fallback position on GCHQ spying on Trump. Otherwise the Guardian would be in deep trouble under the UK’s Official Secrets Act and its D-Notice procedure to suppress or censor news stories on secret intelligence matters.
Finally, the British also seem to be trying to spread the blame around to a laundry list of other countries allegedly passing on intelligence about Trump-Russia contacts—Germany, Estonia, Poland, Australia, the Dutch and the French DGSE.
Still, no “smoking gun” has ever been found in any of this wiretap material, for it would already have been leaked like Lt. Gen. Flynn’s fairly benign conversations with the Russian ambassador that got him fired.
Despite the sensational news from The Washington Post that the FBI obtained a FISA warrant to wiretap ex-Trump adviser Carter Page, which may even still be in effect, his “Russian contacts” also seem to be completely ordinary and routine. Page is so confident of his innocence that he has been going on various television news programs to talk openly about his work on Russia, supplying Russian contacts with some of his New York University classroom materials.
To be sure, a certain large percentage of these kinds of business meetings with Russians will turn out to be with undercover Russian intelligence officers—unbeknownst to the Western business and academic people meeting them. The media portray them as suspicious. But this kind of Russian spy game has always been going on since the Cold War and is nothing new.
The FISA warrant, rather than proving any malfeasance by Carter Page—again no “smoking gun”—only adds to the evidence that what President Trump said from the start was true: that Trump and his associates were under electronic surveillance.


Unasked Questions  

What do the wiretaps on Trump actually say? The media don’t want to know if the NSA-GCHQ wiretaps actually exonerate President Trump.
One of the advantages of the adversarial system in the courts is that advocates on the opposing side ideally get a fair chance—unlike the one-sided media with journalists who, at the rate of more than 90 percent, contributed to the Hillary Clinton campaign (see this Columbia Journalism Review study of election records).
Questions not asked of Rice or other sources by the media include whether she or other Obama officials “flagged” the unmasked Trump team names for future NSA (or British GCHQ) automatic unmasking and delivery of transcripts and summary reports.
Did the Obama people regularize the “unmasking” so that routinely a new retroactive search was automatically ordered with automatic unmaskings? That would be another way to turn “incidental collection” into an effectively ongoing wiretap order. Did President Obama or Rice or others request actual sound recordings of Trump and others to review?
Did the Obama team “unmask” other presidential candidates and associates besides Trump, such as Green Party candidate Jill Stein, who visited Moscow in December 2015 and dined with Putin? Fox is reporting that Congressional investigators are now looking into whether other presidential candidates and Members of Congress were surveilled too. In 2014, CIA director Brennan was caught red-handed lying to the Senate about the CIA’s criminal hacking of the Senate Intelligence Committee’s computer system.
We are told that many, if not most, of these wiretaps and unmaskings of Trump people were not even wiretaps about Russia or “incidental collection” on legitimate foreign intelligence subjects, though they may have begun that way.
The evidence now indicates that the information was procured for partisan political purposes—to spy on the Trump opposition to Hillary Clinton using the full weight of the U.S. government’s NSA spying apparatus (or NSA facilities used by British GCHQ). 

Pompeo Must Clean Out the CIA
Trump’s CIA Director Mike Pompeo is in a position to get to the bottom of this scandal. Yet, on April 13, 2017, in his first public speech as director, he seemed to indicate that the evidence being developed in connection with the CIA’s role in the illegal surveillance of President Trump was going to be ignored or brushed aside. It was a forceful, even strident, defense of the Agency.
“I inherited an Agency that has a real appreciation for the law and for the Constitution,” he claimed. “Despite fictional depictions meant to sell books or box-office tickets, we are not an untethered or rogue agency. So yes, while we have some truly awesome capabilities at our disposal, our officers do not operate in areas or against targets that are rightfully and legally off-limits to us.”
The evidence suggests the opposite. The CIA under Obama’s CIA Director Brennan was involved in illegal surveillance, using those “truly awesome capabilities,” against political targets that should have been off-limits.
One of those targets was the President who appointed Pompeo as CIA director.

Conspiracy became reality In May 2013 when the Director of the IRS Exempt Organizations division Lois Lerner publicly admitted and apologized for the targeting of conservative groups by “flagging” groups with the words like “tea party,” or “Patriot” in their names, for addition scrutiny, and in many cases delaying their applications, as well as demanding the names of their donors.

For years, conservative groups were mocked, called paranoid and treated as conspiracy theorists until that apology. 

The scandal that followed included Barack Obama claiming their was not a “smidgen of wrongdoing,” despite the fact that the House Ways And Means Committee sent out a criminal referral to the Department of Justice, which was dismissed by Obama’s DOJ out of hand.

Time Line – IRS Targeted Tea Party Groups

THERE IS A NEW SHERIFF IN TOWN NOW

Since then it has been revealed that the total was much higher than the original list identified back in May 2013, which was 298, with the released names of over 400 organizations that were subjected to long delays, while being forced to answer intrusive questions about their donors and activities.

Representative Peter Roskam, revealed on an interview with Fox Business on Thursday morning, that there is “overwhelming” evidence that suggests under Lerner and Obama the IRS “denied people due process and equal protection of the law based on their political ideology,” which he states is a felony. Roskam also states Lerner may have lied to the Inspector General of the Treasury Department, who was investigating those very charges.

Roskam states “What we want is a new Justice Department to take a fresh look at this while we are well within the statute of limitations and if the can, to move forward with the prosecution.”

On April 12, 2017, Congressman Kevin Brady, joined Roskam, in sending a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions, urging him to take a “fresh look” at the case against Lerner, 

Full letter below:Dear Mr. Attorney General:

On April 9, 2014, the House Committee on Ways and Means voted to send a letter to the Department of Justice referring former IRS Exempt Organizations Division Director Lois G. Lerner for criminal prosecution. As indicated in the attached letter, the Committee’s nearly three-year investigation uncovered evidence of willful misconduct on the part of Ms. Lerner. Despite this fact, and for what many believe were purely partisan reasons, the prior Administration refused to review Ms. Lerner’s misconduct. For the reasons described below, I respectfully request the Department of Justice to take a fresh look at the evidence presented in the attached referral in order to restore taxpayers’ trust in the IRS.

In particular, the Committee found that Ms. Lerner used her position to improperly influence IRS action against conservative organizations, denying these groups due process and equal protection rights under the law. The Committee also found she impeded official investigations by providing misleading statements in response to questions from the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration. Finally, Lerner risked exposing, and may actually have disclosed, confidential taxpayer information, in apparent violation of Internal Revenue Code section 6103 by using her personal email to conduct official business.

As you know, your predecessor brought no charges against Ms. Lerner or any other IRS employees involved in the improper targeting of organizations applying for tax-exempt status.

Disturbingly, in February 2014, while the investigation by the Department of Justice (DOJ) was ongoing, President Obama stated there was “not a smidgeon of corruption” at the IRS, preempting a fair investigation in which he had political equities. It is clear that when the DOJ announced in October 2015 that it would not bring charges against Lois Lerner, the agency was following President Obama’s signal on how he wanted the investigation to be handled.

Taxpayers deserve to know that the DOJ’s previous evaluation was not tainted by politics. Again, I respectfully request that the Department of Justice to take a fresh look at the evidence presented in the attached referral in order to assure the American people that DOJ’s prior investigation was handled fairly and to restore taxpayers’ trust in the IRS.

Sincerely,
Kevin Brady
Chairman

Committee on Ways and Means
Peter Roskam
Chairman
Subcommittee on Tax Policy

According to Investment Watch Blog, Sessions is said to be excited about pushing the “very strong” case forward.

CHICKENS ARE COMING HOME TO ROOST

With the recent arrest of Candace Marie Claiborne, an employee of the U.S. Department of State, announced on the Department of Justice website on March 29, 2017, for concealing extensive contacts with foreign intelligence agents, while accepting gifts and bribes for information, and the “full blown” investigations started by Congress into Obama’s former National Security Adviser Susan Rice’s “unmasking” of names that were part of the Trump campaign, the chickens are coming home to roost, in regards to the potentially illegal activities of the Obama administration and the agencies that became so politicized during his presidency.

To date there has been no direct evidence implicating Barack Obama in the IRS scandal, or the orders to unmask American names, which many believe was done for political purposes, but then again, no actual prosecutions have begun yet, so one has to wonder how many of these recent revelations and investigations will 1) produce active prosecutions and 2) implicate Barack Obama himself if those being prosecuted decide to cut a deal to save themselves.

BOTTOM LINE

It has been less than three months since Obama left office and Congress is actively investigating a number of issues, as is the DOJ, and we have to wonder if the aforementioned investigations are just the tip of the iceberg and how much more is going to be revealed as to what the Obama administration did behind the scenes during his eight year term.

And the pinhead of the week award goes to another Democrat

By J. D. Heyes, editor-in-chief

(NationalSentinel) War on Women: Time and again, far-Left Democrats are proving they are the party of terrorism and violence, not the GOP.

The latest example involves a pinhead state representative from Arizona, Jesus Rubalcava, who threatened in an online post to punch a female GOP state senator “in the throat” over her sponsorship of legislation expanding the state’s school voucher program.

As reported by The Daily Caller:

“I wanted to punch her in the throat!” Rep. Jesus Rubalcava wrote on Facebook about state Sen. Debbie Lesko, whose legislation was signed into law last week by Gov. Doug Ducey.

“As a survivor of domestic violence from a previous marriage, Representative Rubalcava’s Facebook post saying ‘I wanted to punch her in the throat’ was very disturbing and totally inappropriate especially since he is an elementary school teacher and legislator,” Lesko said in a statement to the Arizona Republic. “I hope in the future that he debates issues based on their merit in a civil manner.”

Rubalcava has since deleted the post, although screenshots of it were captured by local news organizations. He later apologized on the House floor for the comment, citing the fact that he was raised by a single mom, according to the Republic.

Yeah, not good enough. This woman-threatening coward should not only lose his job as a teacher, he should be censured by the Arizona House and replaced by voters at the next election.

Enough already. Decent Americans are fed up with the bullying, threats and violence of the Alt-Left.
