VIDEO: Cardinal Raymond Burke Resisting ‘Large-Scale Muslim Immigration’ is Patriotic

BY 

It’s a rare statement to hear in this era of politically correct conformity. And one in which Catholic, Protestant and Jewish organizations, at least in America, have been corrupted by cashing in on refugee resettlement for Muslim migrants.

ROME, May 17, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) ― Resisting “large-scale Muslim immigration” is “a responsible exercise of one’s patriotism,” Cardinal Raymond Burke said today.

The Cardinal made the remark at this afternoon’s Question and Answer session at the Rome Life Forum in Rome. The session immediately followed Burke’s address on filial piety and national patriotism.

Burke responded by saying that the Church’s teaching on immigration, which he had discussed in his speech, supported individuals who are “not able to find a way of living in their own country.”

“And this is not true of immigrants who are opportunists, in particular in the case of Islam, which by its definition believes itself to be destined to rule the world, coming in large numbers to countries,” he said.

“You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to see what’s happened, for instance, in Europe, in countries like France and Germany and also here in Italy. And it’s also happening in the United States.”

Burke cited a book called No Go Zones which, he said, “records places in the United States where, in fact, Muslim immigrants have set up their own legal order.”

“In other words, they resist the legitimate authority of the state,” he continued.

These comments may sound surprising, but Cardinal Burke has made similar remarks in the past, as Hugh Fitzgerald had noted in 2016 right here at Jihad Watch.

The other day, a senior Cardinal in Rome, Raymond Burke, gave an astonishing interview to the Religion News Service. He stated that “there is no question that Islam wishes to govern the world” and “criticised Christian leaders who “simply think that Islam is a religion like the Catholic faith.” That is not true, Cardinal Burke insists, for if Muslims become a majority in any country they “have the religious obligation to govern that country.” Burke says there are already “little Muslim states” within France and Belgium that are no-go areas for the police and are run, essentially, by local Muslims for the local Muslim population. Burke insists that the only way for Europe to withstand the relentless onslaught of Islam is “to return to its Christian roots.”

America’s Second Revolution — Trump and the Morality of Mankind

As George Washington was divinely inspired and protected to form this great nation, it is my belief that Donald Trump is divinely inspired and protected to resurrect America. Welcome to our miracle.

“We must not surrender to the false song of globalism”

I am asking you to believe in yourself again and I am asking you to believe in America. And if we do that then all together we will make America strong again, we will make America wealthy again, we will make America safe again, and we will make America great again. God bless you!” – President Donald J. Trump


Global Deep State De-Class Has Begun

The global deep state de-class and take down is officially underway. What an absolutely incredible time to be alive at this precise moment in history. For more than two decades, I and others have been chastised and labeled conspiracy theorists when expressing what was evident to the intuitive and wise critical thinker, that being, that a “One World Government” objective, “Globalism”,  towards a tyrannical Godless police state, was real and wreaking havoc upon our existence and quest for peace, prosperity, good health and happiness. This is what the New World Order, the global ruling elite and their structured control centers were marching us all towards. That is until now, until TRUMP! They succeeded in dividing us. They will not succeed in conquering us. It’s time to unite.

No, I’m afraid, this is not a conspiracy theorist fantasy my fellow Americans and citizens of this trouble world, but rather a conspiracy fact and reality that the world is now waking up to. And to the friends, associates and family members who have distanced themselves from me, to say the least, I welcome you back with open arms and forgiveness. I did not fight to be right, I was right. I am right. What side of history will you be on? I express no apologies, but accept them for (“in a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act”), Orwell, 1984. Welcome to America’s Second Revolution, Trump and the morality of mankind.

America’s Second Revolution Trump and the Morality of Mankind

With the recent upset of the century, the global deep state and shadow government of this world has experienced its first real setback with the election of Donald J. Trump as President of the United States. The globalists now tremble as Trump and this movement threaten their totalitarianism world government. Although optimism has returned, the battle now begins as President Donald J. Trump leads America’s second revolution.

Oxford defines morality as the principles concerning the distinction between right and wrong or good and bad behavior, a particular system of values and principles of conduct. The extent to which an action is right or wrong.

When you think about it, this is a powerful fundamental of which no one escapes. Psychopaths and Sociopaths playing God. Killing new born babies. Late term abortions. Pedophilia and child sex trafficking. Endless baseless useless wars. Digital debt based manipulated currency. Poisoned air, water and food. False Flags Ops. against innocent unsuspecting citizens of this world. “We now live in a nation where doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, universities destroy knowledge, the press destroys information, religion destroys morals, and banks destroy the economy.” – Chris Hedges.

Go ahead and just look at what you see before you. Operate with honesty and integrity and refocus your moral compass. In short, with this great awakening within the human spirit, we will see significant turmoil and extraordinary dangers as evil is exposed and truth is revealed. This is what the global de-class reveals. The left wing lunatics and the heavily drugged, (this includes on-going drug laced customers that Big Pharma has created), and the severely brainwashed ignorant, I am afraid most of you will not come to see the light. You will have to deal with this later. It won’t be pleasant. But as for the rest of us, many are waking up. More will wake up. We must help them to see. We welcome you to reality, to the truth, the disruptive uncomfortable truths that you are now beginning to see.

What’s Your Story?

We all have our story. Here’s mine. What’s yours? Share it with me and with others. Share this post with others.

I began questioning things as a child. I began researching and discovering uncomfortable truths over two decades ago. I then embarked upon sharing these disruptive uncomfortable truths with those in my life. First in conversation, then via songwriting back in the mid-late 1990’s. In 2009, I began speaking before groups and have since covered eight states and three countries. I also launched the Save America Foundation a 501(c)(4) and held large scale conventions in two states. I expressed my voice and views as a radio talk show host, the show was titled, “Freedom It’s Up To Us”. Then in 2013 while living in Asia, I co-authored my first book, “Surviving Global Governance”. From 2013 to present, I have written a total of eight books. My new book will be published in March of 2020 with pre-order discounts and perks to be announced. In 2015, I launched my word press blog website and have since authored over 400 articles. Today, I write books and articles. I speak before politically active groups supportive of President Trump. I am the Chairman and leader of the group Sarasota Patriots for Trump and I am a news commentator being interviewed on radio, TV and internet based platforms. I am but one voice for our times.

Great Awakening

There are no accidents. There are no coincidences. What we do right here, right now, will determine how we live out the rest of our lives and beyond. The human race and the universe itself are becoming more and more conscious of itself. This is a good thing as we are a culture and civilization in serious decline, a planet in peril. A full course correction was needed which has now begun and soon the masses will see this. In this, there is hope. You can’t change people. They change themselves by their own decisions. You can influence them and guide them. Do this. The door is opening. Soon they will see. This has already begun all across the globe. Follow Q.

I’ve been so moved by what I’ve seen and heard along the way in life. So much so it has inspired me, and I feel as if I must respond to the questions asked or not yet asked by those more intimately in my life, those I have met in life, and now to you – the reader – and to anyone who will take the time and challenge that presents itself to look at life in a new way. The blissfully ignorant go along as though it were business as usual. It is not business as usual, I can assure you of this. I can assure you of this.

It is my hope and desire that our collective voice will inspire others to make the necessary changes resulting in a better life and a better world. That it may help us through what will prove to be some very dark and challenging days ahead. In the end, I am a long-term optimist but a short-term realist, and in the long run, I believe we will restore dignity, love, and peace to the human race. Changing the morality of mankind. I am a short-term realist and thus these efforts are put forth in my work.

I believe we are living in extraordinary and challenging times. My mission is to awaken, inspire, and to motivate people. However, only individuals themselves can become awakened, inspired, and motivated while other people can be the conduit or trigger point. I am not telling anyone how to think, for who am I, or anyone for that matter, to do such a thing? I am merely asking you to look, observe, do some due diligence, and question what you see before you and to think for yourself. Fair enough?

We must stop and take a look around us to re-asses ourselves, others, life, living, and the systems and structures that make this world go round. If you are tired of spinning around in the hamster wheel called your life, then it’s time to look at who is spinning that wheel and what you can do to stop this circular insanity. A raised understanding is needed as to the realization that a major paradigm shift is under way and that we have been living in a web of deceitful lies designed to entrap us and move us away from the spirit and more towards vanity and worldly possessions as we march blindly like useless idiots down the road to serfdom. The opposite of love is not hate, it is fear. So, choose love. As you obtain more and more truths, then take the correct steps in implementing change, the fear subsides.

Many of us have become a part of what I call the robotic hypnotic flock. Ignorant followers, so to speak. Now, being a follower is a good thing as most of us are not leaders, yet we rely on leadership. When being a follower, be a wise and discerning one and not an ignorant one. Be aware of who or what ideology you are following and ask yourself if this is pro-survival with the greatest benefit to the many without hurting the one. Then proceed. We now have the leadership, the brave and brilliant leadership of President Donald J. Trump. Don’t squander this miraculous opportunity because it may seem unpopular. We are indeed living in the age of an increasing number of smarter phones and an increasing number of dumbed-down people. Isaac Asimov once said, “The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom.” By and large, his quote is so true today.

Optimist – Realist – Pessimist

Ultimately, I am a long-term optimist but a short-term realist. I believe that love conquers all and the light will shine, expose the evil, and overcome the darkness. However, I also feel we are living in a time where being a flippant, eternal optimist or the doom and gloom pessimist is not the most effective position to take. And there is not time for ignorance. Not now. WTF up! In fact, I believe that being a flippant optimist in the face of the harsh realities of the day can get you, and perhaps others around you, killed. In times like these there is nothing smart nor cool about being a short- term optimist; don’t buy it. Neither is denial or burying our heads in the sand. We might consider starting out by being a realist. Observe the obvious, trust but verify, practice critical thinking, question authority, question everything, and think for yourself. But observe the obvious. Surround yourself with people of like-mind who do indeed truly understand the times in which we live and expand those circles of relationships.

Being a realist can be challenging as one must first be able to recognize truth from something other than truth and this can be difficult as we are living in a bubble, a falsely created reality, a contrived and controlled world, strewn with lie after lie, concealed truths, half-truths and biased vested interest for selfish gain and to assert control over the free-will of others. I mean, after all, they take our space and make it small, they stamp out free-will, and keep us tied and bound. They direct our attention and control our minds for their evil deeds. Well, a new day has come and so this shall perish from the earth. You are not alone. We are never alone.

Conclusion

The challenges we all face are enormous but the scales are tipping. This is our time; we have a chance. The time for action is now. You are nothing more than an accomplice should you stand by idly as the culture and planet declines rapidly into a very, very unpleasant condition. This is now changing. The proverbial pendulum has indeed shifted with Team Trump. Get with the program. It is my hope that we begin to come to realize these misconceptions and begin the much needed course corrections, both personally and collectively. Peace and love shines bright in the light. Let’s brighten this light all around the world while there is still a chance to do so. Won’t you join us?

There are three things that cannot long be hidden, the sun, the moon and the truth. So when your children and grand children as you – “What were you doing when the global governance was being thrust down the collective throat of America and the world”, what will your answer be? Freedom, it’s up to us! Get with the program. WWG1WGA

Corporations Behind Equality Act’s Passage in House

On Friday, the U.S. House of Representatives passed legislation containing provisions that will seriously undermine 1st Amendment protections for people of faith.

The so-called Equality Act is essentially a sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) accommodation mandate at the federal level. Like the “bathroom bills” at the state and municipal levels in recent years, the measure would add sexual orientation and and gender identity to the list of classes protected by civil rights laws such as race, sex, age, and physical disability.

The Heritage Foundation has outlined seven ways the Equality Act would affect Americans:

  1. It would penalize Americans who don’t affirm new sexual norms or gender ideology.
  2. It would compel speech.
  3. It could shut down charities.
  4. It would allow more biological males to defeat girls in sports.
  5. It could be used to coerce medical professionals.
  6. It could lead to more parents losing custody of their children.
  7. It would enable sexual assault.

Small business owners, especially those who service the wedding industry, are already in the left’s crosshairs. Cake bakers and florists like Jack Phillips and Barronelle Stutzman have had their livelihoods threatened by government agencies for refusing to participate in same-sex weddings under similar SOGI accommodation laws in their states. The Equality Act’s implementation would open more business owners to lawsuits, including doctors and mental health professionals.

Fortunately, the Senate appears to have no desire to allow the Equality Act to move forward this Congress.

On the other hand, major corporations, at the behest of the liberal Human Rights Campaign (HRC), are openly endorsing the legislation’s anti-religious liberty provisions. The Business Coalition for the Equality Act is a coalition of companies that support this legislation’s attempt to promote the LGBT agenda while attacking small business owners and undermining the 1st Amendment.

Texas: Illegal Alien from Kenya Charged in Murder of at Least a Dozen Elderly Women

Nightmare! 

Imagine settling your mother into a senior living facility and learning that she was murdered for her jewelry by an African man who was living here illegally.

Some families are now suing the facilities!  But, first the news about what is happening in a case that could become one of the largest serial murder cases in Texas history.

By the way, at least the AP story mentions in its headline Billy Chemirmir’s immigration status while other news accounts call him a “Texas resident.”

From the Associated Press (there are actually 12 indictments),

Man in country illegally charged with 11 murders in Texas

DALLAS (AP) — A Dallas man previously arrested in the death of an 81-year-old woman has been charged with killing at least 11 more elderly women whose jewelry and other valuables he stole, authorities said Thursday.

Kim Leach, a spokeswoman for the Dallas County district attorney’s office, said 46-year-old Billy Chemirmir was indicted Tuesday on six more counts of capital murder in the deaths of women ranging in age from 76 to 94.

Chemirmir, a Kenyan citizen who was living in the U.S. illegally, also is charged in nearby Collin County with two counts of attempted capital murder for similar attacks there, according to county court records.

A Collin County grand jury also returned five capital murder indictments against Chemirmir on Tuesday.

Chemirmir has been in custody since March 2018 in the death of the 81-year-old Dallas woman, Lu Thi Harris. Police in Plano were investigating Chemirmir in connection with suspicious death and suspicious person calls at a senior apartment complex in that Dallas suburb and found evidence linking him to Harris’ death in Dallas, authorities said. Plano is in Collin County.

Because one ninety-year-old survived, the case unraveled! At least a couple of the murders happened at The Tradition where allegedly Chemirmir posed as a maintenance man.

The break in the case came when Chemirmir forced his way into the Plano apartment of a 91-year-old woman that March, telling her to “go to bed. Don’t fight me,” according to an arrest affidavit filed in Collin County. The woman was smothered with a pillow into unconsciousness and robbed. However, paramedics revived her and she told investigators that her attacker had stolen a box containing her jewelry. Police identified Chemirmir from a license plate number and were able to find and tail him days later, when they watched him throw a jewelry box into a trash bin. They traced the box to Harris, according to the affidavit.

[….]

Police said then that investigators were reviewing about 750 unattended deaths of elderly women for possible links.

[….]

In addition to the murder charges, Chemirmir is being held on a charge of being in the country illegally.

More here.

Several news accounts say that there is no information available about how Chemirmir happened to be in the US in the first place. Did he overstay a visa? Come across our border illegally? Win the diversity visa lottery? What?

Here is a story at the Dallas Morning News about families suing the senior living facilities that they allege did not protect their mothers.

This must be Kenya criminals week at Frauds and Crooks, see my post yesterday about the Kenyan Medicaid scammer, a woman who should not have been living among us either.

Trump Seeks to Unify GOP Around Immigration Goals

President Donald Trump hopes to unite Republicans behind new immigration goals that focus on border security and a merit-based system that keeps legal immigration at current levels.

The president is set to deliver a Rose Garden address on the plan at 2:30 p.m. Thursday.

Trump wants more people coming to the country to fill new jobs in the expanding economy, and is concerned that Democrat lawmakers routinely stick together, especially in the Senate.

Senior administration officials contend Trump’s plan will make legal immigration more fair and is in the national interest. They contend that it will bring in, and keep, the best and the brightest legal immigrants.

The number brought in because of family already here—so-called chain migration—is expected to decline under the plan.

Senior administration officials noted Wednesday that Democrats already have come to the table with their non-negotiables, while Republicans still have several points of disagreement.

The president aims to find points that almost all Republican lawmakers can agree on.

The officials estimated that the merit-based changes would shift the immigration population from 13% employment-based to almost 60% employment-based.

Three categories would focus on “extraordinary talent” visas and vocation visas, and on keeping “extraordinary students” from abroad after they graduate from U.S. colleges.

The visas would be issued on a point-based system, more in line with Canada, Japan, New Zealand, and other countries, officials said.

While moving immigration policy toward a meritocracy, the plan still would prioritize spouses and children to achieve family reunification. But, senior administration officials said, the plan would not give an immigrant an unfair advantage to enter the United States simply because he or she has a relative already here.

Because the immigration-neutral, merit-based plan is aimed at uniting the president’s party, it doesn’t include language about the Obama administration’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or about a guest worker program.

Republicans have been divided on both issues.

The White House hopes to push Democrat opponents of the plan either to negotiate or argue for the status quo.

The border security portion of the plan includes a border wall and closing loopholes to end the policy known as catch and release.

Trump is frustrated with the current system, which releases hundreds of thousands of illegal border crossers pending a hearing because of a shortage of federal immigration judges.

Dear Readers:

With the recent conservative victories related to tax cuts, the Supreme Court, and other major issues, it is easy to become complacent.

However, the liberal Left is not backing down. They are rallying supporters to advance their agenda, moving this nation further from the vision of our founding fathers.

If we are to continue to bring this nation back to our founding principles of limited government and fiscal conservatism, we need to come together as a group of likeminded conservatives.

This is the mission of The Heritage Foundation. We want to continue to develop and present conservative solutions to the nation’s toughest problems. And we cannot do this alone.

We are looking for a select few conservatives to become a Heritage Foundation member. With your membership, you’ll qualify for all associated benefits and you’ll help keep our nation great for future generations.

TAKE ACTION: Ask Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to Implement E-Verify Statewide

Over 4 million Floridians for Ron DeSantis for governor. Thousands voted for now Governor DeSantis based on his promise to implement E-Verify. During this session the Florida state legislature failed to bring E-Verify to the floor for a vote. It is time for Governor DeSantis to take action to implement E-Verify statewide.

Governor DeSantis said during his inaugural address:

We will stand for the rule of law. We won’t allow sanctuary cities. And we will stop incentivizing illegal immigration, which is unfair to our legal immigrants, promotes lawlessness and reduces wages for our blue-collar workers. [Emphasis added]

Having illegal aliens fill jobs that can, should and would be filled by legal Florida citizens is wrong. Implementing E-Verify will eliminate the incentive to come to Florida.

Please take immediate action to correct this most important problem for our Great President and the American citizens to Make America Great Again.

CLICK HERE TO Email Governor DeSantis @ flgov.com

If you wish send the information to your state Senator and Representative.

Many still choose to be critical of Trump. People reach out to me, looking for ways to help them rebut such attacks as they are challenged on some of these issues and events. Some challenge me directly as well. People who in my view, mean well, but take the path at knocking President Trump for issues such as Venezuela, the declassification (why has it taken so long), and some of the neocon “deep staters” the President is often surrounded by. Then there is China, N. Korea, 5G, censorship, locking up Hillary, toxic vaccinations, and many other events of the day. Well for starters, I ask you, what have you done today to help resurrect America? Critics are a dime a dozen, as are Monday morning quarterbacks.

Get with the program. There are scores of excellent alternative sources for news provided here in this article and the videos and links within. Go check them out. Change the channel. Take a look at this since the Fake News will not report on it. Our President is accomplishing so much. Unprecedented in modern history. Thank you sir. Promises Kept.

If you are serious about helping to win this battle, seek truth. Spread truth. Expose lies. I can assure you, if you need some help at breaking free from controlled thought, breaking free from the matrix, read this post and the articles and videos within.

Regurgitating Robots – The Robotic Hypnotic Flock

We hear the same regurgitating talking points day in and day out. Too bad much of them are not even in the vicinity of truth. This is an intel war right here, right now in 2019 as we engage in fighting America’s second revolution.

There is a reason that CNN’s ratings and viewership have cratered. According to Brent Bozell, and many other sources, there is an estimated number of less than 800,000 viewers and a population of over 320,000 million in the US, watching CNN. More people are watching pasta boil on the food channel than listening to the BS that CNN and others dish out. They have been exposed. It’s Fake News my friends, Fake News. As for Fox News, we have a bit of a voice there, but Fox should not be the core source if one wants to get to the news behind the news. Change the channel. Create an arsenal of alternative sources in your quest for truth. I will provide here some links to other articles and video clips of the subject at hand along with an offer for you to receive your free digital e-book, “How to Detect Truth from Lies in the age of Fake News”. This digital e-book is loaded with alternative links for you to explore in your quest for true news.

Facebook is under a Federal investigation. Google and Twitter have been hauled into hearings taking heat from Ted Cruz. We will be hearing more and more about antitrust laws and breaking up monopolies. President Trump has been tweeting about this as well as discussing this at the recent rally in Panama City Beach, Florida just the other night. It’s a long haul, but perhaps down the line we may restore free and fair press. In the meantime, its a citizen’s journalist world. We are the news.

CAIR’s 2019 Funding “Islamophobia” Report is Worth a Look

Released this week, the Council on American Islamic Relations report contends that over a thousand foundations (listed in the appendix) fund a vast array of organizations who hate Muslims (they say).

Of course my first thought was, well who funded this report endorsed by the disgraced Southern Poverty Law Center and who funds CAIR?

And, my second thought was that if there is so much money sloshing around in the “Islamophobia Network,” why haven’t I seen any of it?

I know a lot of citizen volunteers/writers working on educating America about political Islam who work for zip, zero, nada!

Hey, rich foundations! I am over here! (Donation button in right hand side bar!)

Thanks to a reader for sending me the news.

Here is what NPR says about the report,

Mainstream Charities Are Unwittingly Funding Anti-Muslim Hate Groups, Report Says

The nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization says that charitable foundations, mostly mainstream, are directly and indirectly giving millions of dollars to anti-Muslim hate groups.

The hate groups benefiting include ACT for America, the largest anti-Muslim group in the country and a registered nonprofit.The group is described by the Anti-Defamation League as an organization that stokes “irrational fear of Muslims.”The Council on American-Islamic Relations looked at the money trail from 2014 to 2016 from over 1,000 largely mainstream charities to 39 anti-Muslim groups that it calls the “Islamophobia Network.”The report, called “Hijacked by Hate,” was released Monday. It found that nearly $125 million was funneled to these groups. That includes money that was anonymously given through the charitable foundations of wealth management groups like Fidelity Charitable and Schwab.

Others, like CAIR, call it a hate group for its spreading of misinformation about Islam and fearmongering around the principles Muslims live by.

“Traditional charities and foundations — commercial foundations, community organizations, community foundations, religious foundations — these foundations in philanthropy that make America what it is have been undermined,” said Abbas Barzegar, director of research and advocacy at CAIR. “[They are being] used, or in my mind exploited, to funnel anonymous money from wealthy donors to the Islamophobia Network.”

Continue here.

NOTE: Ms. Heidi Beirich (SPLC), an endorser of  CAIR’s report, is responsible for the SPLC’s anti-Muslim extremist list that included yours truly. A lawsuit subsequently forced them to remove her discredited research from their website.

If you are in store for a rainy weekend where you live, snuggle up with this report and let me know if you find any juicy nuggets worth sharing.

Arabs have everything to gain from normalization with Israel, while Israel has little to gain

As an Arab activist and writer, I call on the Arab world to normalize relations with Israel, a move that would be almost entirely to our benefit alone. Israel will gain very little from this in practical terms, while Arabs stand to gain tremendously. The state of Israel is stronger and more stable than the Arab states on almost all fronts. If all borders were wide open in Arab states,  few if any Israelis at all would flee Tel Aviv for Arab cities, but you would certainly see a flow of people in the opposite direction for the very same reason that multitudes of Arabs seek to emigrate to Europe.

The conflict over land must be put into perspective. The land which officially became the State of Israel was originally  Jewish territory, one that was later controlled by a series of conquerors, including Arab-Muslims. The latter are the true occupiers, and they are fighting to reverse the reestablishment of Jewish sovereignty. Any sane person knows—or should know–that the Jews are not colonialists in this region, but rather an indigenous people. But we Arabs have grown arrogant to the point of denying all historical records of Jewish sovereignty preceding Arab-Muslim rule in the Middle East. The Hebrew language alone is evidence enough of  long Jewish history in the land of Israel.

Even in my country of Jordan, which is officially at peace with Israel, we still hear the term “resistance to normalization” with the hated “Zionist enemy.” My people don’t understand that Israel is actually our friend, and that if we followed the Jewish state’s example then we, too, would become prosperous like America and Europe.  Instead, we remain under the influence of an Islamic colonization that keeps us living a backward and primitive existence. Some examples: take a look at Israel’s universities compared to ours, its hospitals compared to ours, Israel’s technology compared to ours (if you can find any).

Israeli scientific research is often ahead of what’s coming out of Europe and America, while we Arabs wallow in the dark ages.Despite all our hostility, Israel still wants to live in peace with the Arabs. Can we really blame Jews for returning to a land from which they were forcibly expelled?

The real reason Arab countries resist normalization with Israel is that they reject Western civilization. The State of Israel is a civilized, democratic country, like those of Europe; sometimes even more so. The Arab world has been raised to detest this brand of civilization. What we find in the end is that those calling to resist normalization with Israel often do not truly understand what they are protesting. They want the benefits of European and Israeli civilization, but then spurn the genuine example of it right next door to us.

I note that what is now “European” civilization is largely built upon Judeo-Christian civilization, which originated with the Jews of the Middle East.

Our region is really the home of the Jewish, Aramaic and Syriac cultures. The Arabs came from the Arabian Peninsula and they colonized and obliterated those indigenous cultures. Over time, those original peoples began to forget and abandon their cultures and assimilate into Arab civilization.

The Arabs are the original occupiers, and have no right to deny the return of the Jewish nation. And that is why I call for normalization: for the recognition of the right of the Jews to exercise sovereignty in their ancestral lands. We Arabs came from the Hijaz, Najd and Yemen. We occupied this land and made it Arab. Some of the Syriac and Aramaic words we still use today, as well as the recorded names of settlements uncovered in archaeological digs. This demonstrates the proof that we are not the original inhabitants here. It is time to solve this conflict, and that begins with us, the Arabs, accepting the Jewish people’s true historical connection to this land. We have everything to gain from so doing.

U.S. Government Media Network Extols “Press Freedom” After Firing Journalists Over Soros Report

It’s ironic that, just weeks after firing journalists behind a broadcast critical of leftwing billionaire George Soros, the head of the U.S. government’s international media networks is proclaiming his support for “press freedom.” U.S. Agency for Global Media (USAGM) Chief John F. Lansing, an Obama appointee, issued a heartfelt statement a few days ago reaffirming his “commitment to the fundamental principles of press freedom.”

In the document, titled “Fighting for press freedom, today and everyday,” Lansing assures the world that his agency “will continue to report the truth,” though it recently cost USAGM journalists their jobs. The occasion was World Press Freedom Day, celebrated on May 3, and Lansing expresses deep concern that his taxpayer-funded agency “continues to witness firsthand how a free and independent media is deteriorating worldwide.”

Posted on the agency’s website and disbursed worldwide, the document goes on to say “despite some very dark moments, we have not been silenced. We will continue to report the truth. We will continue to find new ways to get independent reporting and programming to global audiences who rely on it.

And we will continue to carry through our mission to inform, engage, and connect people around the world in support of freedom and democracy. Today, and every day, I am proud to be part of this organization, and call these brave men and women colleagues, as we stand together for press freedom.”

Lansing conveniently omits that he recently utilized Stalinist techniques to retaliate against USAGM journalists and producers involved in the Soros piece. The Spanish-language segment aired in May 2018 on Television Martí and was available for months online until it caught the eye of a scandal-plagued senator tried for bribery and corruption.

Eight reporters and editors at the publicly funded media outlet were terminated and, at the request of the disgraced senator, New Jersey Democrat Bob Menendez, Lansing ordered a review of all content to address “patterns of unethical, unprofessional, biased, or sub-standard journalism.” An employee at the Miami, Florida-based Martí headquarters said in a local newspaper report “the environment that has been created by the upper hierarchy of the Agency for Global Media is repressive. People write with fear. Adjectives are no longer used.”

Television Martí—and its radio counterpart—operate under the Office of Cuba Broadcasting (OCB) and comprise one of the USAGM’s five international multimedia networks. The others are Voice of America (VOA), Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL), Radio Free Asia and Middle East Broadcasting. The media outlets get about $685 million a year from American taxpayers and reportedly reach 345 million people worldwide in 59 languages.

The global media agency was created to counter disinformation spread by oppressive regimes abroad. The USAGM website states that its mission is “to inform, engage and connect people around the world in support of freedom and democracy.” Television and Radio Martí were created to promote freedom and democracy by providing the people of Cuba with objective news and information programming.

The Soros broadcast focused on his efforts to cripple sovereign governments in Latin America. Judicial Watch was cited as a source because it investigated State Department funding of Soros groups in Colombia and published a report on Soros’ initiatives to advance a radical globalist agenda in Guatemala. Judicial Watch also released a special report documenting the financial and staffing nexus between Soros’ Open Society Foundations (OSF) and the U.S. government.

In that document, Judicial Watch connects the dots between U.S.-funded entities and OSF affiliates to further the Hungarian-born philanthropist’s agenda seeking to destabilize legitimate governments, erase national borders, target conservative politicians, finance civil unrest, subvert institutions of higher education, and orchestrate refugee crises for political gain. A few years ago, Judicial Watch exposed a scheme in which the U.S. government spent millions of dollars to destabilize the democratically elected, center-right government in Macedonia by colluding with Soros’ OSF.

More than five months after the Spanish-language Soros broadcast aired on Television Martí, Menendez ordered Lansing to conduct an immediate investigation and the USAGM chief retaliated against his own staff for practicing the “press freedom” he defends weeks later.

Menendez, who serves on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee despite his sordid history, blocked President Trump’s nomination last year to replace Lansing as USAGM chief so perhaps Lansing owed him. A few years ago, Menendez was charged with federal bribery and corruption stemming from his relationship with a crooked south Florida eye doctor that lavished him with cash, gifts and trips in exchange for political favors. The eye doctor, Salomon Melgen, got convicted of stealing $73 million from Medicare and was sentenced to 17 years in prison.

Menendez got off because jurors were unable to reach a verdict and his trial ended in mistrial. His colleagues on the Senate Ethics Committee determined that the veteran lawmaker not only violated senate rules, but also federal law and applicable standards of conduct. In a public letter of admonition, the committee writes that over a six-year period Menendez knowingly and repeatedly accepted gifts of significant value from Melgen in violation of senate rules and federal law. “Additionally, while accepting these gifts, you used your position as a Member of the Senate to advance Dr. Melgen’s personal and business interests,” the committee writes.

MUELLER WITCH HUNT/RUSSIA COLLUSION: An analysis of Robert Mueller and his motivations.

Let us start with the qualifications, or lack thereof, of Robert Mueller to be a special prosecutor investigating the alleged “collusion with Russia” by one Donald J. Trump.

We will progress from there to the real collusion with Russian elements engaged in by our own CIA in an attempt to interfere in the U.S. presidential elections of 2016.

How about Uranium One?  Think it was just Hillary Clinton who was involved?  Nine members of the Obama administration, including Eric Holder, and former FBI director Robert Mueller (in the CFIUS committee) voted in favor of allowing the Russians to control 20% of America’s Uranium.  I always said, wouldn’t you just love to see the bank accounts of those nine people during the time surrounding that event?  Do you really believe that the Clinton’s kept all of the $145 million dollars the Russians paid them?

According to Wikileaks, in 2009 Sec. State. Clinton commissioned FBI director Mueller to deliver a 10-gram sample of enriched (weapons grade) Uranium to Russian intelligence.  The transfer was made during a Tarmac meeting in Moscow in the fall of 2009 (Love those Tarmac meetings).   Clinton apologists have insisted that this transfer of Uranium had nothing to do with the Uranium One deal, or with Clinton’s role in the CFIUS deal.

As a former intelligence officer myself, I find it strange that the FBI director would be tasked with a job that one would expect should have been handled by either the CIA or the Department of Energy.  The CIA at that time was headed by Bush holdover Gates, a straight shooter, which might explain why Clinton turned to Mueller, a long-time deep state swamp critter with an extensive history of shady deals.

When Russian bribery efforts in the Uranium One case came to light, guess who Mueller put in charge of the investigation?  Fellow deep state swamp critter Rod Rosenstein, the physical and ideological clone of Nazi Deep State operative Heinrich Himmler (don’t believer me?  Google the photos).  Mueller and Rosenstein then suppressed knowledge of the Russian bribery case.

But it now appears that 2012 was the banner year for Mueller and company to engage in criminal and treasonous activities.   Remember the HSBC bank case where said bank was accused of (and admitted to) engaging in money-laundering activities for Drug cartels and terrorist groups?   Guess who was a member of the HSBC board of directors during the time these crimes were committed?  Mr. purer-than-driven-snow James Comey.  HSBC was let off the hook by the payment of a fine.  Guess who handled the case?  US Attorney for the Eastern District of New York Loretta Lynch, who was then rewarded by Obama with the post of U.S. Attorney General replacing Eric Holder, who was AG at the time of the Russian bribery scandal and this HSBC scandal.  Does the swamp take care of its own?

The above can be found in Jerome Corsi’s new book “Killing the Deep State,” as well as a variety of other sources.

But now for the treason.  Former Air Force intelligence officer Stephen Coughlin in his book Catastrphic Failure:  Blindfolding America in the Face of Jihad documented that in February of 2012 both Robert Mueller and John Brennan colluded and collaborated with elements from the Muslim Brotherhood to rid America’s intelligence and law enforcement entities of valuable data bases, books, and training manuals connected with the war on terror (p. 379).  Former DHS officer Phil Haney speaks of the same thing in his book See Something, Say Nothing:  A Homeland Security Officer Exposes the Government’s Submission to Jihad, p. 141).   But neither Haney nor Coughlin connected all the dots, linking these acts to treason.  So I will do it here:

In 1991 the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) produced a document titled:  An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America.

This document, in Arabic, was obtained by the FBI in a raid on a safe house in Northern Virginia, in 2004.  It was later used in the Holy Land Foundation trial of 2008 when Muslim Brotherhood elements connected with CAIR were found guilty of supporting terrorism.  I have in my hands a copy of the original 1991 Arabic, and a copy of the English translation used in the 2008 Holy Land trial.

This so-called “memorandum” is more like a “manifesto,” it is essentially a declaration of war on the United States and Canada.  It does not shy away from using the term “Civilizational Jihad.”

A key passage on page 4 of the Arabic original of this long, multi-page document calls on MB brothers and sympathizers in America to destroy and uproot our civil society and civilization, so it can be replaced by Shari’a law.

Egypt’s state-sponsored al-ahram newspaper on 30 August 2016 also carried a long multi-page essay on this same MB document, reaching the same conclusion as above, e.g. that the goal of the MB was to destroy the civil society and civilization of America and replace it with Shari’a law.  Civilizational jihad.

In other words, in this document the MB essentially declares war on our constitution.  So, now to connect the dots, Both Mueller and Brennan not only violated their oaths of office (to defend and protect the Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic) by collaborating and colluding with a declared enemy of the United States and its constitution, but also aided and abetted that same enemy by obeying that enemy’s command to destroy Counter Terrorism training materials and data bases.  And, that, folks, is the definition of treason:  Article III, section 3.

Russia, though a competitor and an irritant, is not an openly declared enemy of the U.S., therefore collusion with it is not a crime.  However the MB is a declared enemy, therefore   aiding and abetting it is a crime . . . the crime being treason.   Now, does anybody out there seriously believe that Mueller and Brennan deleted all of these data bases and burned and shredded all of these books and training manuals in every intelligence and law enforcement agency down to the local cops . . . without Obama’s knowledge and approval?

In May of 2012 the Obama administration also issued “hands off” orders to US Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers, and US Customs and Border Protection officers pertaining to Muslims of all strips–even radicals.  So, this “hands off” policy imposed by the Obama administration allowed Muslim Brotherhood leaders and others with Islamic supremacist beliefs and affiliations to travel freely in and out of the United States (Haney, p. 132).

So, in other words, we have not only Brennan and Mueller committing treason, but also Obama.  So, what were the results of their treason?

After all these CT data bases were deleted, and executive orders given, allowing terrorist to roam freely in our country, the following terrorist acts were committed between  2013 to 2016:

Boston Marathon Bombing, Tennessee Military Recruiting Stations, Oregon Junior College, San Bernadino, and Orlando.  The toll:  82 Americans killed, and 353 Americans wounded on American soil.  No one has been held accountable.

(There is more than enough evidence here for the injured survivors and the families of those killed by these terrorist acts to launch very successful class action lawsuits against Mueller, Brennan, and Obama.  All three of these men should spend the rest of their lives in Ft. Leavenworth for the damage they have done to the United States–a damage that has long outlived their years of “service” in the government.)

The Russians even gave us direct warnings about the Tsarnaev brothers (Boston), and about the Oregon shooter.  Obama gave orders to ignore Russian warnings because “Russia is not valid at this time.”  (Translation:  Obama was peeved at Putin).

NOW FOR THE RUSSIA/TRUMP DOSSIER

While Sean Hannity and others screech about a tiny mouse in the room (the Dems paying Fusion GPS $12 million for dirt on Trump), they totally ignore the 20-ton elephant that takes up 99% of that same room.

In the first place, we don’t know how much, if any, of that $12 million GPS received from the Democrats were paid to Christopher Steele.  Certainly GPS would have wanted to keep some (or all) of it for themselves.  And, even if Steele received some of it, we would have no evidence he paid even a dime to unknown Russians for the production of the salacious material in the dossier.  No, we’re talking about much bigger fish than the Democrat’s $12 million dollars.

Ever wonder why John Brennan has been so strident, almost psychotic, about demonizing Trump publicly in tweets and on TV?  Check this out:

London-based EYE SPY  magazine, which is close to Britain’s MI6 organization,  reported (April 2017 issue, pp. 20-22) on two Russian cyber Geeks whom their employer, Russia’s FSB spy organization, had arrested for “violating their oaths of office and collaborating with a foreign intelligence agency” (Later identified as the CIA).

These two cyber geeks were apparently the ones who put together much of the salacious (and probably doctored) material (videos, audio tapes, and other “hacked materials”) which were used in the Steele dossier.

The equivalent of $14.1 U.S. dollars was found by the FSB in the residence of Dimitri Dukuchayev, one of the cyber Geeks, a major in the FSB.  The Russians swear that the money came from the CIA.  It can be assumed that the other geek, Sergei Mikailov, a  Col. in the FSB, must have received at least that much himself.  Plus, they used at least one middle man, an ex KGB general named Oleg Erovenkin (who was chief of staff to an oligarch close to Putin), to get the materials to Steele (and/or the CIA).

So, we are talking probably dozens of millions of U.S. taxpayer dollars paid by Brennan’s CIA to Russian operatives to produce materials that (Brennan hoped) could be used to interfere in the U.S. presidential elections of 2016 and/or bring Trump down were he to actually win the election.

Ever wonder why, if the whole purpose of the Mueller investigation was “Russia collusion” based on the Trump/Steele dossier . . . ever wonder why Mueller and his merry gang of over a baker’s dozen Trump haters have never raised a finger to actually investigate . . . what their whole premise is base upon–the Dossier?

As a footnote, the alleged Middle Man Erovenkin (surprise, surprise) turned up dead (slumped over in the back seat of his car) before the FSB could question him.  Though the hospital he was taken to pronounced the cause of death, a heart attack, just about everyone in Russia suspects foul play.  Foul play . . . but by whom?

The timeline of this is interesting:  The existence of the Dossier was made public to the media in October 2016–but only after Brennan personally gave DNI James Clapper the okay to release it to CNN.  Two months later, in December, middle man Erovenkin is taken out before he can be questioned.  Then, one month after that (after FSB officials had combed Erovenkin’s computers, phone data, etc. for contacts) the FSB arrested the two above-mentioned cyber geeks in January of 2017.

And, so, these are the clowns (Mueller, Comey, Rosenstein, and Brennan) who have spearheaded the plot to: 1.  Clear Hillary Clinton, and 2. To bring down Trump.

And we’re supposed to assume, as Trey Gowdy said, that everything is being handled correctly, that the FBI did exactly as the American people would want them to?

(Several news sites on the net are now reporting that FSB Col. Sergei Mikailov has been sentenced to 20 years in prison by a Russian court.  His partner, Dimitri Dukuchayev is awaiting trial.  Dukuchayev, I believe, was the ringer leader of this scandal from the Russian side.)

MUELLER PLAYS DEFENSE

There is an old adage I think that came from football:  The best defense is a good offense.

If you have a ball-hogging offense that can eat up the clock and score lots of point, you won’t need much of a defense because the other team won’t have the ball in their hands with enough time to score any points of their own.

For the last two plus years we’ve seen the Democrats play that game, launching countless investigations into everything related to Trump.  Their game plan is to stay on offense, keep Trump (and the Republicans) on the defensive constantly so they don’t have time to launch counter investigations on such things as FISA abuse and who really paid for the Dossier.

And, of course, Robert Mueller was a large part of the Democrat game plan.  He knew at least 19 months before he issued his report (if not from the moment he was brought on board) that the Dossier was false, the FISA warrants were illegal, and there was no collusion between Trump and Russia.  And, yet, knowing all of that, Mueller persisted in perpetuating a $35,000,000 fraud against the American people.  Why?

SEMPER FIE FI FO FUM

Apologists for Mueller always point to the fact that Mueller was a marine.  He served in Vietnam, was wounded, and honored with a medal.  Well, Adolph Hitler also served his country in wartime, was wounded during WWI, received a medal.  Then went on to “public service” where he was responsible for the deaths of tens of millions of people.

The only qualities of the Marine Corp that Mueller has retained, is his dogged persistence.  Put him on a case as a prosecutor, and he will get a conviction.  It does not matter whether his target is innocent or guilty, he will get that conviction.  Another notch on his gun handle.  No boy scout he.

Which is why the Democrats and the Deep State were overjoyed to see Mueller picked as special prosecutor–and why fellow swamp critter Rod Rosenstein hand-picked his old fellow traveler to do the dirty.

Mueller’s job was not to prove Russian collusion, because the only collusion was by the Democrats and Mueller’s buddies in the Deep State.  No, Mueller’s job, pure and simple, was to destroy Trump.  So, knowing that there was no Trump/Russia he perpetuated the fraud for as long as he could hoping that Trump would slip up, say something that  Mueller could use as a secondary charge.  A face-to-face interview would have served that purpose had Trump fallen for it.

Mueller has a long history of getting people to admit to crimes they didn’t commit just so he could get a prosecution.  And, he has a long history of destroying the lives of innocent people and their families . . . in his quest for yet another knotch on his tainted pistol handle.  Dirty cop, he.

(Remember the anthrax scandal where Mueller’s false accusations and pursuit ended up costing the U.S. taxpayers millions).

Thankfully, Trump didn’t fall for the face-to-face with pit viper Mueller, but Trump being Trump, there was always the chance that he’d say something, or tweet something that Mueller could use as a secondary charge of “obstruction” or something.

And, Mueller and his Trump-hating psychopaths dutifully recorded every one of Trump’s Trumpisms, and thinking outloud-isms.  But, in the end they couldn’t make the case.

At this point, when Mueller finally decided to give up the charade, he had a duty to make a decision not only on Trump/Russia, but on the issue of “obstruction of justice.”  Mueller’s failure to do so left the door open for the Democrats to continue playing offense.  If not Trump/Russia, then “obstruction of Justice.”  If not obstruction of justice, then it’s Trump’s relationship with Saudi Arabia, or his not being friendly enough with Qatar (to paraphrase California Representative Adam Schiff, and New Jersey senator Robert Menendez).

Qatar, BTW, is one of the world’s top three state sponsors of terror, and is the primary state financier of the Muslim Brotherhood, which in turn financed numerous other subsidiary jihadi terrorist groups.  So, I do believe that Schiff’s and Menendez’s fondness for Qatar needs to be investigated.

MUELLER COLLUDES WITH DEMOCRATS

Isn’t it ironic that the Democrats are demonizing Trump for “being cozy with dictators,” and even using that allegation as a basis for additional investigations into the possibility of beginning impeachment proceedings?  This, from a basket of political bullies who cheered Trump’s predecessor for kissing up to the murderous Castro regime in Cuba, for submissively telling the then Russian president that “he’d be more flexible after the elections,” for granting Iran the right to pursue nuclear weapons in the 2030s while turning 150 Billion dollars over to them to use for terrorist purposes, and not to mention his “coziness” with Egypt’s former Muslim Brotherhood dictator Muhammad Mursi.

With this background on the Democrat’s obsession with investigating everything Trump, Mueller timed the release of his so-called testy letter to Attorney General Barr, just prior to Barr’s testimony before Congress, so as to give Congress some red meat to use on Barr.  The only motivation for that, on Mueller’s part, is to allow Congress to remain on the offensive.

And, so, then the Democrats attacked Attorney General Barr because they can’t get to Trump since there is no collusion and no obstruction of justice.

WHY MUELLER, THE DEMOCRATS, AND DEEP STATE NEED TO STAY ON OFFENSE

If the FISA applications and the Steele dossier origins and funding were ever investigated, it would bring down and possibly send to jail some of Mueller’s best friends.  Not to mention any names such as James Comey, Rod Rosenstein, and John Brennan.

But even worse than that, opening up those investigations could lead to a larger investigation including several other crimes committed during the Obama years.  These could include the Hillary Clinton e-mail scandal, and Mueller’s own treasonous actions in 2012 vis-à-vis the Muslim Brotherhood.  Investigating these scandals in turn, would lead right back to the Obama White House and could put dozens of other deep state swamp critters behind bars–including Mueller himself.

Bottom line, Mueller, and his fellow “Deep State” swamp creatures, are fighting for their lives, and will do anything to keep their opposition on the defensive–and to make the public so sick of “investigations” that launching any counter investigations against the real criminals now becomes nearly impossible.  That was the Democrat Party, Deep State objective all along, and they have been hugely successful following that strategy because they have a very corrupt national media playing ball with them.

My evaluation is that if these investigations are either not started, brushed aside, or not followed to their logical conclusions (i.e. responsibility being place on those who deserve it), then the United States is well on the way to becoming a third-rate banana republic.

(Note: Much additional information on this so-called “Spy Gate” is contained in a 65 page opus by Jeff Carlson, and posted on The Epoch Times on 28 March 2019.  This includes such morsels as Britian’s GCHQ collecting intelligence on then Candidate Trump as early as late 2015, and then transmitting that intelligence to entities in the United States.  And, an indication that Brennan had an advance knowledge of the Steele dossier a month prior to the FBI’s reaching out to Steele asking for any and all the information he had on team Trump.  This would seem to support the above-mentioned EYE SPY  Reporting on CIA payments to rogue Russian cyber geeks to compile at least a portion of the dossier.)

Mr. Attorney General William Barr, you and your Department of Justice have a lot of work cut out for you.

Trump Pardons Army LT. Michael Behenna, Convicted of Murdering Al-Qaeda Detainee

President Donald Trump issued a full pardon Monday to former Army First Lieutenant Michael Behenna, who served five years in prison after being convicted of murdering a suspected Al-Qaeda terrorist.

In May 2008, Behenna was questioning Ali Mansur Mohamed, a suspected terrorist who had allegedly been involved in an IED attack that killed two U.S. soldiers. The interrogation ended when Behenna fired two rounds into the terrorist — which the 1st Lt. claimed was in self-defense after Mansur lunged for his pistol.

A military court convicted Behenna of unpremeditated murder in a combat zone in 2009. The prosecution said Behenna was not acting in self-defense, but in retaliation for the deaths of his fellow soldiers, and killed Mansur while returning him to his hometown.

In a statement released Monday announcing the pardon, the White House noted that Behenna’s 25-year sentence was greatly reduced following certain concerns about the case. Behenna was released from prison on parole in 2014.

“After judgment, however, the U.S. Army’s highest appellate court noted concern about how the trial court had handled Mr. Behenna’s claim of self-defense.  Additionally, the Army Clemency and Parole Board reduced his sentence to 15 years and paroled him as soon as he was eligible in 2014—just 5 years into his sentence.”

Oklahoma Attorney General Mike Hunter has repeatedly petitioned the White House for clemency, writing to Attorney General Bill Barr last month that Behenna’s conviction was predicated on improper procedure by prosecutors.

The White House cited Hunter’s support in its announcement, adding, “while serving his sentence, Mr. Behenna was a model prisoner. In light of these facts, Mr. Behenna is entirely deserving of this Grant of Executive Clemency.”

Some of Trump’s other high-profile pardons include Scooter Libby, the former chief of staff to Vice President Dick Cheney, and Joe Arpaio, the former Maricopa County, Arizona sheriff.

In March 2018, the president pardoned Kristian Saucier, a Navy sailor who served a year in prison for taking photos of classified areas of a submarine.

Destruction of the Old Guard Trump 2020 Landslide

With the release of the Mueller report, the release and statement of the Barr letter, and the recent desperate unsuccessful attempt by the Democrats at the Senate Judiciary hearing with AG Barr, we are witnessing the destruction of the old guard. The deconstructing of the Deep State apparatus has just begun and this will play out now in public for some years to come. Yes, historical events begin to unfold with Trump and team now on the offense.

What’s Next?

With the treasonous Illegal take down and the failed Coup d’ etat now behind us, what’s next? What’s next is a continuation (at least in the next couple of months), of extraordinary acts of desperation by the Deep State, the Fake News Media and the Democrats. We are witnessing panic, outrage, baseless attacks now on AG Barr, screaming and further diversionary tactics as they know that AG Barr and team are coming after them. Yes. Trump has all the goods on everyone. Trump will not be impeached. The attacks against AG Barr such as lying, perjury, contempt, etc, is all BS, a complete waste of time. No actions of consequence will be endured by AG Barr. The witch hunt is over, dead and gone, finished. Game over.

The attacks will now actually ratchet up against Trump and Barr as they gasp for their last breath of air. They are trying to divert the attention from their soon to be revealed crimes, felonies and treasonous acts. The very things they are accusing Trump and now Barr of, they themselves are in fact guilty of, and truth be told, far worse. Soon to follow, we shall see them destroy their own, with an unintended consequence of ensuring a Trump 2020 landslide. This will be the final and fatal blow to the Democrat party, bring it on. Democrats in droves, will be voting for Trump (albeit many in the closet). The Black and Hispanic population will also flock to the voting booths in favor of Trump. And many Republicans that sat on their butts in 2016, will, also support this President. Trump 2020 landslide.

Violence is Coming

This will be the first time since JFK that the Deep State has been challenged. This time they have met their match and in my opinion, justice is coming for JFK. There are no coincidences. President Trump, in March of 2018 made critical changes to the Martial Law code. The mass arrests that many of us have been talking about for quite some time now will be reaching the main stream news cycle. The Fake News Media will also receive their fatal blow along with the Democrats.

We are seeing resignations. Firings and so on. We will see actual suicides over time as well as those who have been “suicided”. We can anticipate violent activity from the left wing lunatics and Soros funded hate groups. We will see the escalation, (in terms of frequency and magnitude) of false flags events against citizens of the U.S. as well as people around the world. There are no coincidences. President Trump at the NRA speech, dealt a blow to the UN regarding USA gun control making certain that Americans are armed and prepared for what may lie ahead. Not a call to arms per say, but certainly a calculated move and a warning to be prepared.

Justice is Coming

The long (and wisely), awaited de-class. The declassification is coming. When? May-June, 2019. Many are in violation of 18 US Code Sec. 2384 & 2385 which addresses seditious conspiracy and advocating the overthrow of a government. Remember Trump, Barr and the patriots are now in control. What else can we expect? Here is a short list. The Comey Report. Investigation of the source point and cause of the fake dossier. Declassification of FISA. OIG report. Judicial Watch findings, law suits and investigations. The unsealing of the sealed indictments of which there are now over 94,000 across the globe. Huber Report.  Wiener laptop. The beginning stages of taking on the Central Bank and the Federal Reserve system, the Global Financial Reset. Clinton Foundation and other Clinton treasonous acts and crimes. Pedophiles list. NSA files. Wikileaks testimony and more. And yes, in the end, all will leak up to Clinton and Obama. The Bush’s, to a large degree, are already under control by team Trump. Listen closely to Lyndsey Graham, Rudy Giuliani, AG Barr, and President Trump. The pendulum has shifted. They are all going down. The destruction of the old guard has begun.

18 US Code Sec 2385

The code in part states. “Whoever knowingly or willfully advocates, abets, advises, or teaches the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying the government of the United States or the government of any State, Territory, District or Possession thereof, or the government of any political subdivision therein, by force or violence, or by the assassination of any officer of any such government; or

Whoever, with intent to cause the overthrow or destruction of any such government, prints, publishes, edits, issues, circulates, sells, distributes, or publicly displays any written or printed matter advocating, advising, or teaching the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying any government in the United States by force or violence, or attempts to do so; or

VIDEO: Antisemitism and the Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) Event in Orlando, FL

On April 15th, the Heritage Florida Jewish News requested a ‘Press Pass’ by email, to attend the April 20th Emgage Action Gala at the Crowne Plaza Hotel where controversial Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib was the keynote speaker.  Our email request for the press pass went unanswered so a ticket was purchased and confirmed on April 17th.

At the check in table, my name and Heritage press credentials were presented and admittance to the event was denied, without cause or reason.   The only excuse given was, “No media allowed” rudely given by one of the organizers who refused to give her name.  However, nothing on the ticket receipt or advertising flyers said “No Media Allowed.”

My assignment was to report on Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s speech, but now we will explore possible reasons why Emgage Action would behave in such a antisemitic way towards the Heritage Florida Jewish News and its readership.

Front Page Magazine journalist Joe Kaufman reported in a March 19, 2019 article about Emgage founder Khurrum Wahid,

 Khurrum Basir Wahid is a Pakistani-born South Florida attorney, who has built his name on representing high profile terrorists.

His past clients include: Rafiq Sabir, who received a 25-year prison sentence for conspiring to provide material support to al-Qaeda; al-Qaeda operative Ahmed Omar Abu Ali, who received a life sentence for plotting to assassinate President George W. Bush; Sami al-Arian, who sought to create a Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) infrastructure within the Tampa, Florida-area; and Miami imam Hafiz Khan, who was convicted of sending $50,000 to the Pakistani Taliban with the intent to murder American troops overseas.”

“The Miami New Times reports, Wahid himself was placed on a federal terrorist watch list in 2011. The publication states, “[S]ometimes, a clash between his work and personal life is inescapable. Last year, he landed on a federal ‘selectee’ list – a terrorist watch list. Now he gets a pat down at the airport before flying and can’t print boarding passes at home.”                                  

Besides his controversial law practice, Wahid is the Co-Chairman of Emgage Action (formerly Emerge USA), an Islamist group he founded, in 2006, that attempts to pass its extremist agenda off as political advocacy. The group is part of the South Florida Muslim Federation, a consortium of South Florida’s radical Islamic organizations and terror-related mosques. Ammar Ahmed, the South Florida Director of Emgage, in February 2010, following a debate he participated in at a school, wrote on Facebook, “I hate white people” and joked that he “should have threatened to blow up the school.

The mosque Wahid attends is the Islamic Foundation of South Florida (IFSF). Wahid, as well, is the Registered Agent for IFSF’s corporation. On IFSF Youth Group leader Abdur Rahman al-Ghani’s Facebook pageal-Ghani labels Jews “demonic,” calls the US the “World’s Number One Terrorist Organization,” and says Muslims “will overtake the World.”

Perhaps the examples listed above provide a clue into the corporate culture of Emgage Action and their supporters.  Rep. Tlaib’s positions on BDS, Israel, and the Jewish people have made her a controversial figure among our freshman congressman and women and the nation.

An April 11,2019 Clarion Project article reports,

Tlaib is known for being a supporter of the Boycott, Divest and Sanction (BDS) Movement against Israel, which according to the definition of anti-Semitism adopted by the State Department, is an anti-Semitic movement.”

The Times of Israel in a February 20, 2019 article reports, “

“In a video published on the Facebook page of the Israel Advocacy Movement, founder Joseph Cohen displayed a screen capture of the code used for Tlaib’s website which showed it was created using Wix.com.

“That’s right, the Palestinian queen of BDS has a website that was built and bought from Israel,” Cohen says.   Many of the haters of Israel have no idea that Israeli technology is present in just about every cell phone and computer on the market.

“Tlaib, whose parents are from the West Bank village of Beit Ur al-Fauqa, where much of her family lives, is one of the first-ever US lawmakers to support the anti-Israel boycott movement. She also says she supports a one-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and has called for cutting US aid to the country.”

“Tlaib has gained notoriety for putting a ‘post it’ note labeled “Palestine” over the State of Israel.  This political theater signals Rep. Tlaib likely believes Israel does not have the right to exist.  The policy making implications of such a radical view from a sitting United States Congresswoman is chilling.   In this picture, on the far left, is radical Palestinian activist Rasha Mubarak of Orlando, FL.  Keep your eye on Rasha Mubarak, it is rumored she has her sights on running for public office in Orlando.

Most disturbing is Rashida Tlaib’s social media posts where she says of her most radical supporters, “Every single one of you inspire me to stay true to my roots and who I am.” FB post March 31, 2018.

Two of Rep. Tlaib’s more radicalized supporters are Ahlam Jbara and  Mwafaq Jbara.

Ahlam Jbara is an avid supporter of Rasmeeh Odeh, who was arrested for orchestrating a bombing in an Israeli supermarket where two people were killed.  Another social media post show Ahlam Jbara baked Rasmeeh the murderer a birthday cake.  Ahlam also glorified  another Palestinian terrorist Muhammad Ali who stabbed three IDF soldiers in Jerusalem.

Mwafaq Jbara is a Palestinian terrorist who speaks fondly of meeting the co-founder of Hamas while being incarcerated at Megiddo prison in Israel.  Meggiddo prison is known for housing the most dangerous of Palestinian terrorists.  Jbara’s social media posts are a who’s who of high level terrorists.  Most disturbing is in one post he says, “If you see the roof of an Israeli bus flying in the air you will know it’s Yahya.”  Yahya is on of the chief bomb makers for Hamas.  Mwafaq Jbara is also seen posing with terrorist Rasmeeh Odeh.  Mwafaq Jbara and Rep. Tlaib are also Facebook friends.

We wanted to ask Rep. Tlaib about her friends support of terrorists and the killing of Jews but never got the chance.

The Israel Advocacy Movement made an excellent video exposing Rashida Tlaib’s close associates troubling past.

These associations present a pattern of behavior that should concern all American’s concerned with the State of Israel and our countries Middle East foreign policy.

In law enforcement circles, all the facts and evidence uncovered by the Israel Advocacy Movement is an indicator that Rep. Tlaib has troubling associations she should answer for.   Any individual with such connections would likely be denied even low level security clearances.

Conclusion

Once the the fiery rhetoric of antisemitism becomes accepted in the public square it only grows.  The facts and evidence presented in this article paint a disturbing picture of Rep. Rashida Tlaib,  her politics and nefarious associates.

The Zionist organization of America is calling on pro-Israel organizations and “decent Americans” to urge the removal of Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) from the Democratic party and Congressional committees.

In an insightful statement (this link is not working) ZOA National President Morton A. Klein and Chairman Mark Levenson declared,

Someone who knowingly and enthusiastically consorts with the most virulent anti-semites, blood-soaked terrorists and conspiracy theorists is clearly beyond the pale, or no one is beyond the pale.”

New York Times Falsely Claims No One Believes Muslim Brotherhood is a Terror Group

David Kirkpatrick at the New York Times is without a doubt the most deeply dishonest journalist working the Islamic beat today. Kirkpatrick ‘s favorite thing in life seems to be the Muslim Brotherhood. So when there was talk that the Trump administration might designate the Brotherhood a terrorist group, the Times decided to have Kirkpatrick write up an explainer defending the Brotherhood.

And this may be the most bizarre line in that deeply dishonest explainer.

No. Even experts critical of the Brotherhood agree that the organization does not meet the criteria for a terrorist group.

Really?

Three experts at the DeSantis hearing on the Brotherhood agreed that it was.

Which experts does Kirkpatrick mean? Who knows. He later cites “historians”, but never clarifies which historians he means.

Experts critical of the Brotherhood have been highly supportive of this move.

“Historians say there has been no evidence since then that the Egyptian Brotherhood, as an organization, has engaged in violence,” Kirkpatrick writes.

Are these nameless historians aware of the assassination of Hisham Barakat and the conviction of Muslim Brotherhood members for that attack?

Since the military takeover of Egypt’s government in 2013, some members of the Brotherhood have broken off to form organizations that carry out acts of violence against the military-backed government.

Two of those groups, Hasm and Liwa al-Thawra, have been designated as terrorist organizations by the United States government.

Kirkpatrick’s argument is that the Muslim Brotherhood is not a terror group, it just keeps generating them, over and over again, as plausible deniability.

But even experts who consider the Muslim Brotherhood sinister say that they have never seen enough evidence to convince a court that it was a terrorist group.

Those “experts” keep saying things.

But let’s stop listening to Kirkpatrick ‘s imaginary experts and listen to the Brotherhood.

“Suicide attacks represent the highest level of martyrdom, because there are no civilians in Israel.” Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi.

“It is obligatory on all Muslims to resist any possible attack the US might launch against Iran,” Qaradawi said in a 2007 interview. “The U.S. is an enemy of Islam that has already declared war on Islam under the disguise of war on terrorism and provides Israel with unlimited support.”

In September 2004, Qaradawi proclaimed that it was a religious obligation for Muslims to fight U.S. and British troops in Iraq. The communiqué, signed by Qaradawi and 93 other clerics, said that “the Jihad – waging Iraqi people’s resistance to the foreign occupation … is a Shari’a duty incumbent upon anyone belonging to the Muslim nation, within and outside Iraq, who is capable of carrying it out,” and that it was “forbidden for any Muslim to offer support to the occupiers.”

Never enough evidence.

In a statement that aired on Al Jazeera TV in 2009, al-Qaradawi said the Holocaust was a “punishment” for Jews and expressed hope for Muslims to carry out another genocidal campaign in the future.
