Hillary and ‘Undocumented’ Aliens

The excuse “my dog ate my homework” supposedly explains why a student failed to bring a homework assignment to class, but it is an excuse that no one believes.  It is not limited students who fail to do their homework, but has come to be the cliché excuse for anyone not completing an assignment who provides a lame excuse that everyone knows is a lie.

Politicians, pollsters and pundits who are advocates for open borders and the creation of immigration anarchy seek to minimize the true significance of aliens entering the United States without inspection and, of critical importance in this particularly perilous era, without vetting.

Their strategy to deceive Americans is to employ the equivalent excuse of the dog eating homework by saying that these illegal aliens entered the United States “without documentation,” thus shifting attention from the fact that millions of aliens entered the United States stealthily, without inspection.

This is the strategy of Hillary Clinton and her immigration anarchy accomplices.

The inspections process is conducted at America’s 325 ports of entry located along the northern and southern borders of the United States, at seaports that lie along our nation’s 95,000 miles of coastline and at international airports by the arm of DHS known as CBP (Customs and Border Protection), and is supposed to prevent the entry of aliens who pose a threat to the safety of America and Americans.

When a student fails to turn in an assignment his/her teacher will normally press that errant student about why the homework really was not completed, demonstrating the teacher’s dissatisfaction with the excuse.

Yet the obvious question that is never asked about illegal aliens who enter the United States without inspection who claim to be “undocumented” is, “What really happened to their documents?”  Did they ever have a passport or other identity documents?  Did they somehow lose them on their way to the United States?  Did they destroy them before running our borders because they know that their names on those passports would show up on terror watch lists or on lists of international fugitives?

Before we go any further, it is vital to understand that the documents we are talking about are not library cards or credit cards.  These are cards that, under law, are supposed to provide reliable evidence about the true identity of the bearer.  This is a matter of national security.

In point of fact, Title 8 U.S. Code § 1101 – Definitions is a part of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) and provides essential definitions relating to the enforcement and administration of our nation’s immigration laws.  Here is how this section of the INS defines passport:

(30)  The term “passport” means any travel document issued by competent authority showing the bearer’s origin, identity, and nationality if any, which is valid for the admission of the bearer into a foreign country.

“Undocumented aliens” entered Mexico before they ran the U.S./Mexican border.  How on earth did they manage to enter Mexico?  If they flew to Mexico they likely had their passports upon entry and subsequently destroyed them. Consider the national security crisis this creates for the United States.

I recently wrote an article that disclosed how Mr. Obama is now “addressing” this clear national security threat, “Beyond Belief: Obama Seeks Illegal Immigration Assistance Of Latin American Countries As Aliens Flood Into The U.S.The wolves helping to guard the hen house?

Increasingly the Border Patrol has been intercepting aliens from countries other than Mexico and, appropriately, referring to them as OTMs (Other Than Mexico).

Some of these aliens are not only not citizens of Mexico, but are not even citizens of Latin American countries. Some, in fact, are citizens of “Special Interest Countries.”  These are countries that are involved with terrorism.

That these aliens managed to travel half-way across the globe and, upon arrival in the United States, are found to have no passports or other authentic identity documents should set off alarm bells.

Hillary Clinton’s “solution,” however, is to provide them with lawful status and even pathways to citizenship within 100 days of becoming president.

The use of passports and identity documents and multiple failures of the immigration system were the focus of considerable attention by the 9/11 Commission.

The preface of the official report, “9/11 and  Terrorist TravelStaff Report of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States” includes this paragraph:

The story begins with “A Factual Overview of the September 11 Border Story.” This introduction summarizes many of the key facts of the hijackers’ entry into the United States. In it, we endeavor to dispel the myth that their entry into the United States was “clean and legal.” It was not. Three hijackers carried passports with indicators of Islamic extremism linked to al Qaeda; two others carried passports manipulated in a fraudulent manner. It is likely that several more hijackers carried passports with similar fraudulent manipulation. Two hijackers lied on their visa applications. Once in the United States, two hijackers violated the terms of their visas. One overstayed his visa. And all but one obtained some form of state identification. We know that six of the hijackers used these state issued identifications to check in for their flights on September 11. Three of them were fraudulently obtained. 

Page 46 and 47 of this report noted:

By analyzing information available at the time, we identified numerous entry and embedding tactics associated with these earlier attacks in the United States. 

The World Trade Center Bombing, February 1993. Three terrorists who were involved with the first World Trade Center bombing reportedly traveled on Saudi passports containing an indicator of possible terrorist affiliation. Three of the 9/11 hijackers also had passports containing this same possible indicator of terrorist affiliation.5

In addition, Ramzi Yousef, the mastermind of the attack, and Ahmad Ajaj, who was able to direct aspects of the attack despite being in prison for using an altered passport, traveled under aliases using fraudulent documents. The two of them were found to possess five passports as well as numerous documents supporting their aliases: a Saudi passport showing signs of alteration, an Iraqi passport bought from a Pakistani official, a photo-substituted Swedish passport, a photo-substituted British passport, a Jordanian passport, identification cards, bank records, education records, and medical records.6

“Once terrorists had entered the United States, their next challenge was to find a way to remain here. Their primary method was immigration fraud. For example, Yousef and Ajaj concocted bogus political asylum stories when they arrived in the United States. Mahmoud Abouhalima, involved in both the World Trade Center and landmarks plots, received temporary residence under the Seasonal Agricultural Workers (SAW) program, after falsely claiming that he picked beans in Florida.” Mohammed Salameh, who rented the truck used in the bombing, overstayed his tourist visa. He then applied for permanent residency under the agricultural workers program, but was rejected. Eyad Mahmoud Ismail, who drove the van containing the bomb, took English-language classes at Wichita State University in Kansas on a student visa; after he dropped out, he remained in the United States out of status.

Page 61 contained this passage:

Exploring the Link between Human Smugglers and Terrorists 

In July 2001, the CIA warned of a possible link between human smugglers and terrorist groups, including Hamas, Hezbollah, and Egyptian Islamic Jihad.149  Indeed, there is evidence to suggest that since 1999 human smugglers have facilitated the travel of terrorists associated with more than a dozen extremist groups.150  With their global reach and connections to fraudulent document vendors and corrupt government officials, human smugglers clearly have the “credentials” necessary to aid terrorist travel. 

Back when I was a Special Agent of the former INS (Immigration and Naturalization Service) we found that aliens who had arrived at John F. Kennedy International Airport, supposedly with no passports, immediately claimed “Political Asylum.”  It was discovered that they had destroyed their passports in the bathrooms on the airliners on which they flew to the United States.

All too often such arriving aliens were given appointments to show up for hearings at the immigration offices and they simply disappeared once they left the airport.  The solution to this was not costly or difficult.  Their passports should have been placed in a locked box upon boarding the airliners that would be placed in the cockpit or other secured place on the aircraft.

Yet, to my knowledge, this simple measure was never considered nor implemented.

They certainly shouldn’t have been released on their own recognizance in the United States.

There are often simple and inexpensive solutions to the problems relating to the immigration crisis.  However, it is clear that all too many of our politicians, irrespective of party affiliation, aren’t interested in solving these problems, but they have been bought and paid for by the immigration anarchists lead by such organizations as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Documenting the “undocumented” is a prescription for a disaster.

As the 15th anniversary of the attacks of 9/11 approached, I wrote an article about the vulnerabilities that the Obama administration abjectly refuses to address.  My article was, “Reflections on 9/11’s Vulnerabilities: The failures that proved key factors in the attacks — and how Obama has exacerbated them.

My dad used to say that nothing is so good it couldn’t be better or be so bad it couldn’t get worse.  I am convinced that somehow Ms. Clinton would find a way to make the immigration crisis worse — much worse.

Woman raped by Bill Clinton: ‘Hillary has to be made accountable’

CHICAGO, IL /PRNewswire/ — Juanita Broaddrick, who says Bill Clinton raped her while he was campaigning for Governor of Arkansas, told AM560 “The Answer” hosts Dan Proft and Amy Jacobson, for Upstream Ideas, a media company based in Chicago under the leadership of Proft, that Hillary Clinton needs to be held accountable for her comments about the women who have accused her husband of sexual misconduct.

Broaddrick, a former nursing home administrator in Arkansas who worked on Clinton’s campaign, claims the former president raped her in a hotel room in Little Rock in 1978.

She said she was speaking out because Clinton had tweeted that sexual abuse victims had a right to be heard and believed.

“I did not set out to do this; I did not start out supporting Donald Trump,” Broaddrick said. “I was only responding to a tweet Hillary Clinton sent out about all victims of sexual abuse should come forward and be believed.”

“That’s why I tweeted when I did. Shame on her. Her of all people should not make that comment. And then after all that she removed ‘you should be believed’ from her website.”

Broaddrick said she met Bill Clinton when he visited the nursing home she owned and managed. Later on a visit to Little Rock, she contacted him, believing he was genuinely interested in the problems facing the nursing home industry.

They agreed to meet in a hotel coffee shop, but then Clinton invited himself up to her room. In the room, Broaddrick claims he raped her, then afterward appeared to think it was “no big deal.”

Before a fundraiser at a later date, Broaddrick said Hillary Clinton came up to her.

“She grabs my arm, very deliberately, and looks at me very angrily and says in a low voice that no-one else can hear, she says, ‘Do you understand everything you do,'” Broaddrick claims.

Asked what she thought about Hillary Clinton’s reported remark describing her husband’s accusers as “rodeo queens,” Broaddrick said, “It’s degradable…she needs to be held accountable for all of the things she did to us.”

National TV and Radio Campaign To Mobilize The Christian Vote Launched [+Video]

my-faith-votes-logoDALLAS, Oct. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — My Faith Votes, a non-partisan movement working for the engagement of Christian voters in the 2016 Election, has launched a national TV and radio campaign. The series of 23 public service announcements (PSAs) for television are running between 40 to 60 times daily, on an estimated 110 million U.S. households. In addition, a series of 12 radio PSAs are also being played by 205 stations in 29 states. My Faith Votes is calling Christians across America to: PRAY, THINK, VOTE.

“This is by far our most ambitious attempt to date at reaching America’s 90 million Evangelicals with the message that their vote in this year’s election truly matters,” said Sealy Yates, founder and president of My Faith Votes. “Our televised PSAs are in 95 percent of America’s TV households, an unprecedented achievement for a non-partisan, religious movement like My Faith Votes.”

The TV and radio PSAs come as the latest addition in a series of initiatives My Faith Votes has recently implemented to encourage Evangelicals to participate in the 2016 Election.  In the last presidential election more than 25 million registered, Christians did not vote, and the last four elections were decided by an average of only 6 million votes.

“My Faith Votes continues to chart a new path, engaging Evangelicals at a grassroots level, and reminding them that they have a moral obligation to vote,” said Johnnie Moore, national spokesperson for My Faith Votes.  “But, that’s not enough. We’re also focused on providing them with information, tools, and services to make voting more convenient.”

My Faith Votes has also established a partnership with TurboVote, a non-profit that provides an integrative application which makes voting easier by sending reminders and other helpful  information for Election Day. It also facilitates online voting and absentee ballot registration. My Faith Votes has also joined forces with The TurboVote Challenge which aims to reach 80 percent voter turnout by the 2020 Election. Other partners of The TurboVote Challenge include Starbucks, AirBnB, and Spotify.

Last month, on the 15th anniversary of 9/11, My Faith Votes provided a free, live webcast from Nashville, TN of the event “Give Thanks” in order to honor first responders. Guest speakers at the event included author and radio host Eric Metaxas, Gov. Mike Huckabee, and artists Michael W. Smith and Charlie Daniels. The “Give Thanks” webcast reached over 590,000 people.  This month, My Faith Votes and honorary national chairman, Dr. Ben Carson, will partner again on the nationwide theatrical release of “Kirk Cameron’s REVIVE US: An Evening of Hope, Vision and Courage.”

As Election Day nears, the organization continues to host a weekly, interactive webcast entitled My Faith Matters LIVE. It’s website MyFaithVotes.org delivers a comprehensive set of voting resources for individuals, churches, and colleges. On social media, My Faith Votes has now reached 258,000 likes on Facebook, and has also embarked upon a nationwide college initiative working to engage  record numbers of Christian college students.

ABOUT MY FAITH VOTES

My Faith Votes is a non-partisan movement focused on motivating the 25 million Christians who were registered to vote but who chose not to vote in the 2012 and previous elections. Dr. Ben Carson serves as the honorary national chairman of My Faith Votes. 

Don’t become Distracted, this Election is All About Saving America

Don’t let media distractions cause you to miss your blessing – being an American citizen.

I recently had a conversation with a good friend about the presidential election. He repeated the often heard term of voting for the lesser of two evils. The idea is which is better, Hillary the known evil, or Trump an unknown. My take is that Americans must vote for America and the candidate who best can turn our nation around.

The media wants voters to focus on the unimportant rather than what is truly important, saving America from the elitist class that seeks power at the expense of ordinary citizens.

the-way-back-to-restoring-america-book-coverFrank Buckley, author of The Way Back: Restoring the Promise of America in a speech given at Hillsdale college on July 11,2016 titled “Restoring America’s Economic Mobility” said:

In the Communist Manifesto, Marx and Engels wrote that “the history of all hitherto existing societies is the history of class struggles.” Today the story of American politics is the story of class struggles. It wasn’t supposed to be that way. We didn’t think we were divided into different classes. Neither did Marx.

America was an exception to Marx’s theory of social progress. By that theory, societies were supposed to move from feudalism to capitalism to communism. But the America of the 1850s, the most capitalist society around, was not turning communist. Marx had an explanation for that. “True enough, the classes already exist,” he wrote of the United States, but they “are in constant flux and reflux, constantly changing their elements and yielding them up to one another.”

In other words, when you have economic and social mobility, you don’t go communist. [Emphasis added]

Stop economic and social mobility and you kill America.

Buckley warned, “That is the country in which some imagine we still live, Horatio Alger’s America—a country defined by the promise that whoever you are, you have the same chance as anyone else to rise, with pluck, industry, and talent. But they imagine wrong. The U.S. today lags behind many of its First World rivals in terms of mobility.”

In his column “Aborting the Trump Revolution” Patrick J. Buchanan notes:

Five weeks before Election Day, Trump’s taxes have displaced the former Miss Universe as the critical issue, as determined by the anti-Trump media.

Their motivation is not difficult to discern. Their goals are two. First, make Trump unacceptable as an agent of change. Second, keep the people distracted from their determination to rid America of the incompetent and corrupt ruling class that controls this capital city.

Consider but a few of the disasters that establishment does not want discussed or debated, or the American people thinking about, when they head for the polls in November.

There is the great betrayal of the American working class, the deindustrialization of the country, and the loss of economic independence it took America a century to achieve.

Buckley echoes Buchanan’s “great betrayal of the American working class”, stating:

A complacent Republican establishment denies this change has occurred. If they don’t get it, however, American voters do. For the first time, Americans don’t believe their children will be as well off as they have been. They see an economy that’s stalled, one in which jobs are moving offshore. In the first decade of this century, U.S. multinationals shed 2.9 million U.S. jobs while increasing employment overseas by 2.4 million. General Electric provides a striking example. Jeffrey Immelt became the company’s CEO in 2001, with a mission to advance stock price. He did this in part by reducing GE’s U.S. workforce by 34,000 jobs. During the same period, the company added 25,000 jobs overseas.

Buckley concludes, “Since 2012, establishment Republicans have continued to be less than concerned for the plight of ordinary Americans… There are even the ‘conservative’ pundits who offer the pious hope that drug-addicted Trump supporters will hurry up and die. That’s one way to ameliorate the class struggle, but it doesn’t exactly endear anyone to the establishment.”

Buckley drives home his point with, “[T]he principles held up as sacrosanct by establishment Republicans might be logically unassailable, derived like theorems from a set of axioms based on a pure theory of natural rights. But if I don’t see them making people better off, I say to Hell with them. What the establishment Republicans should ask themselves is Anton Chigurh’s question in No Country for Old Men: If you followed your principles, and your principles brought you to this, what good are your principles?”

To hell with them!

Trump, Kaepernick and Gratitude

A black relative in his late 50s told me I should be more sympathetic of Colin Kaepernick’s grievances with America; more understanding of young blacks dissing their country. I say, “Hogwash!”

My 88 year old black dad might have a reason to dis our National Anthem, but not Kaepernick. Kaepernick is a wealthy bi-racial pro-athlete whom America has been extremely good to. His grievances are rooted in ingratitude and lies promoted by Black Lives Matter.

Dad told me when he was a young Merchant Marine, after several months at sea their ship arrived at a maritime base in St. Petersburg Florida. The crew was extremely excited about their much anticipated shore leave. Then, Dad and his fellow black seaman were told they could not leave the ship due to the town’s curfew for blacks. Dad said his outraged fellow black seaman exploded into an endless rant of cussing. Dad said he cried.

Dad said they were the first blacks to arrive at that base. The two blacks eventually had to leave the ship because it was scheduled for decommission. On that U.S. Maritime base, dad said they had to be accompanied everywhere by body guards. Meals were eaten separate from white seaman. They had to call a black cab company for a ride into town. Blacks could only enter the movie theater via stairs in the back of the building which led to a ticket booth and seating in the balcony.

Dad told me years ago how white seaman on that base trapped and attempted to hang him. White shipmates saved Dad’s life.

Folks, that was real-deal painful racism. Hearing gen-xers and millennial blacks whine about racism is absurd; flat-out nonsense. So no, I do not want to hear Kaepernick’s arrogant and ignorant disrespect, his lack of gratitude for Americans, black and white, who suffered and died paving the way for him.

Blacks are only 12% of the U.S. Population. How does Kaepernick and other arrogant ungrateful young blacks who keep kicking America in the teeth think blacks have risen to power in practically every area of American life; culminating with a black man holding the highest office in the land for the past 8 years? Obviously, a majority of white Americans regret past injustices and sought to make things right.

Some may argue that America is not perfect. The Bible acknowledges that we live in a sinful world. Therefore, nothing is prefect. However, America’s positives far outweigh her negatives. I continue yelling from the rooftops, “America is the greatest land of opportunity on the planet for all who choose to go for it!” Cut the victim crap and pursue your dreams!

Pumphrey, the community I grew up in had a banquet honoring my dad who was a pillar of the community. Dad is a great man, but he is a human being. Therefore, he is not perfect. What if at Dad’s banquet a speaker from the podium said this banquet is a sham, spouting negatives intended to bring down Dad’s status? Dad’s guests would be outraged. Pumphrians realize their Rev. Dr Lloyd E. Marcus is not perfect, but his life bears testimony that his good far surpasses his not so good.

We Americans who honestly weigh America’s positives against her negatives feel love and respect for our country. This explains the heartbreak we feel regarding this trend of athletes from the pros down to middle school giving America their middle finger. This is why it is so offensive hearing wealthy, spoil-brat black “yutes” dissing their country based on lies and racist experiences of which they know nothing about.

Though praised by America hating Leftist media, Kaepernick exposed his ignorance when he attacked Trump by saying, “America has never been great for people of color.” What was America when it elected a black man to be president for two terms? What was America when it made a dark-skin over-weight black woman (Oprah) one of the richest most powerful persons in the world?

In the late 1970s, I became the first black graphic designer at a Baltimore TV station. My buddy Joe Ford became the first black Art Director at Baltimore prestigious advertising agency, W.B. Doner. We blacks were pretty peerless in our fields. Today, blacks are present in almost every field of expertise. To say that blacks have not come a long way baby in America is absurd.

From politicians who awarded me scholarships to attend art college to businessmen who hired and mentored me, most of my career stepping stones have been placed ahead of me by whites.

Folks, I could go on and on with examples of how America, which is mostly white, has been extremely good to blacks. We all know and see this reality. And yet, the America hating Left and Black Lives Matter lies rule the day; millennial hearts and minds. Very sad. Devastatingly destructive.

Philosophers, gurus, and spiritual teachers, secular and religious, all tout the wisdom and proven powerful personal benefits of an attitude of gratitude. 

The universal proven principle at work is that when one expresses gratitude you attract more good stuff to you.

And yet, the Left (democrats, mainstream media and Hollywood) demeans and belittles grateful American blacks. Blacks who spit in the face of their homeland are considered, cool, brave and enlightened by the Left. The Left says blacks who understand the blessing of being born an American are either stupid or mentally ill suffering with Stockholm Syndrome

The Left celebrating blacks who dis their country while beating up on blacks who are proud Americans is yet another example of the Left selling blacks another destructive bag of excrement with a bow on it.

Blacks are trending towards voting for Trump. I pray that enough blacks have finally seen the light; saying, “No thank you” to the Left’s masterfully wrapped bag of excrement, filled with racial hate, more false promises and destructive deceptions.

I informed a clueless black relative that every major city controlled by democrats for the past 40 years is a hellhole of black suffering; through-the-roof unemployment; epidemic school dropouts; over 70% fatherless households, high incarcerations and record-breaking black on black homicides. Blacks’ negative experiences in America are all easily traceable back to their irrational loyalty to democrats; sleeping with their enemy.

Isn’t it ironic that the source of “real” hope and change for blacks, along with all Americans, is Donald Trump? Trump will, “Make America Great Again!” We are all sooooooooo ready!

MN: Endangered species list gets longer

Prospects for repealing red light cameras in the Florida Legislature

Floridians, snowbirds and tourists are plagued with red light cameras, which  are cash cows for local governments. One organisation is doing something to repeal the legislation that created this government program gone wrong. Liberty First Network in an email states:

For several years in the Liberty First Network’s fight to repeal the use of red light cameras we have had success in the Florida House of Representatives and last session a bill to repeal red light cameras passed the House easily. It has been the Florida Senate that continues to stonewall any repeal bill. There have been too many Senators taking the side of the local governments and the camera companies for this government camera-for-profit program, despite studies showing how ineffective these cameras are at preventing intersection crashes.But, the headwinds are changing in our direction with this year’s primary results and our prospects for finally sending this public nuisance to the dustbin of history are looking very good.

The incoming Senate President will be Joe Negron (District 28). Joe has always supported the repeal of red light cameras and I expect he will be supportive and will not try to block a repeal bill moving through the committee process. Senator Brandes (District 24) will be back for another term in the Senate and is committed to his long-time fight to repeal the cameras. Senator Brandes will sponsor the Senate camera repeal bill again in the 2017 session.

The continued good news is that in the August 30 primary election we had several former House members win who support repealing red light cameras. Debbie Mayfield (District 17) and Greg Steube (District 23) won their primary and are expected to win in November. Former Representative Frank Artiles (District 40) has sponsored the House repeal bill over the last few sessions and has a good chance to win a Senate seat in November, as well as Dana Young (District 18), who served as the Majority Leader in the House and supports repealing the cameras. Another former House member who has supported repealing cameras is Keith Perry (District 8) who will have a tough fight in November. Former House members Dennis Baxley (District 12) and Kathleen Passidomo (District 28) won their primaries and with no general election opponents will be sworn into the Senate in November. Both Dennis Baxley and Kathleen Passidomo supported the House camera repeal bill in the last session.

It looks like we will have at least two Democrats win Senate seats that support repealing cameras. Former House member Daphne Campbell (District 38) is unopposed in the general election and former House member Darryl Rousan (District 19) who is likely to win his heavily Democrat district in November.

Representative Richard Corcoran (District 37) will become the Speaker of the House for the next two years. Richard has been a long-time advocate for repealing cameras and is committed to making it happen in the next session. I am not expecting any problems in passing a repeal bill in the House again in the next session.

We will have our best opportunity to finally repeal cameras in the next session, but let me caution you that we still have to be ready to fight. The camera companies like American Traffic Solutions will have their army of lobbyist along with the local government bureaucrats who do not want to see their cash cow die. Please be ready to make the phone calls and e-mails to pressure your legislator to do the right thing. I will keep you alerted as to which legislators you need to contact and when.

However, I need your help to ensure that I will be there every day at the Capitol to remind them that they represent you and not American Traffic Solutions and their high-priced lobbyist. It costs the Liberty First Network $125 per day to be in Tallahassee for the legislative session. It is a large undertaking and with your support we can make a huge impact this upcoming year.

In Liberty,

John Hallman
Liberty First Network

Huma Abedin: Will She Repudiate Her Family’s Islamist Views?

Abedin, herself, worked on an Islamist journal for 12 years, beginning the year she became a White House intern. She hasn’t commented on that job.

Concerns about Huma Abedin, a top aide to Hillary Clinton, both when she was secretary of state and now, as the Democratic presidential nominee, began surfacing in 2012. According to leaked emails, Abedin is slated to become secretary of state if Hillary Clinton is elected president.

In 2012, Rep. Michele Bachmann and four other members of Congress requested information about the influence of Muslim Brotherhood-tied groups and individuals in the U.S. government, including Abedin, who worked for 12 years as an assistant editor of an Islamist journal that spewed extremism.

Abedin’s tenure at the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs began in 1996, the year she began working as an intern at the White house.

Clarion Project covered that request extensively, as the Congressional members who made it were pilloried by their colleagues. We also covered the extremism of Abedin’s mother, father and other family members.

Now more information has been uncovered regarding the Islamist beliefs of Abedin’s parents. While it is certainly possible to disavow the ideology of one’s parents, Abedin has remained silent on their extremism as well as her work with on journal. It remains to be seen whether or not she will repudiate these new findings.

Syed Abedin, Huma Abedin’s father who died in 1993, was a Muslim scholar connected to the Saudi Arabian government. According to exclusive video footage from 1971 recently obtained by the Washington Free Beacon, Syed Abedin advocated the following:

As Muslim countries evolve, he said, “The state has to take over. The state is stepping in in many countries … where the state is now overseeing that human relationships are carried on on the basis of Islam. The state also under Islam has a right to interfere in some of these rights given to the individual by the sharia.”

In addition, he is quoted as saying, “The main dynamics of life in the Islamic world are still supplied by Islam. Any institution, as I said before, any concept, any idea, in order to be accepted and become a viable thing in the Islamic world has to come through … Islam.”

Abedin’s mother, Saleha, has an especially strong Islamist ties. She is a member of the female counterpart of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and the Muslim World League. She leads a group called the International Islamic Committee for Women and Child, a subsidiary of a Muslim Brotherhood-led group that is banned in Israel for its links to Hamas.

In 1999 and three years after Huma began working for the journal, the journal and Saleha Abedin’s group published a book in Arabic titled “Women in Islam: A Discourse in Rights and Obligations.”

The book states that man-made law is inherently oppressive towards women, while sharia law is liberating. According to the text, Muslim women have an obligation to contribute to jihad, apostates are to be put to death, adulterers should be stoned or lashed, freedom of speech should be conformed to the boundaries set by sharia and wives must have sex with their husbands on command, “even if she is not in the mood.“

In addition, the organization led by Huma Abedin’s mother “advocates for the repeal of Mubarak-era prohibitions on female genital mutilation, child marriage and marital rape, on the grounds that such prohibitions run counter to Islamic law, which allows for their practice,” according to an analysis by the Center for Security policy.

The book advocates against laws to assure equality of women, saying, “Man-made laws have in fact enslaved women, submitting them to the cupidity and caprice of human beings. Islam is the only solution and the only escape.”

In terms of women working in high positions, the book states, “Her job would involve long hours of free mixing and social interaction with the opposite sex, which is forbidden in Islam. Moreover, women’s biological constitution is different from that of men. Women are fragile, emotional and sometimes unable to handle difficult and strenuous situations. Men are less emotional and show more perseverance.”

However, an exception does exist: “Women can also participate in fighting when jihad becomes an individual duty.”

The New York Post reports that Saleha is on the payroll of the Saudi government and part of her job is to advocate for sharia law in non-Muslim countries like the United States.

“In 1995, less than three weeks before Clinton gave her famous women’s-rights speech in Beijing, Saleha headlined an unusual Washington conference organized by the Council on American-Islamic Relations [CAIR] to lobby against the UN platform drafted by Clinton and other feminists. Visibly angry, she argued it runs counter to Islam and was a “conspiracy” against Muslims.

“Specifically, she called into question provisions in the platform that condemned domestic battery of women, apparently expressing sympathy for men who commit abuse,” reported the newspaper.

We hope that Abedin does not hold the same opinions as her parents or the journal of which she was the assistant editor. And it would certainly be nice to have to tell us that.

Florida: Conservative Activist Evicted from Miami Dade College

A conservative activist was kicked off Miami Dade College’s Kendall Campus after being told she was on private property, despite the school being a public institution.

Driena Sixto, a field representative for Turning Point USA, was recruiting for the conservative organization at Miami Dade College when an administrator called campus police to have her removed, according to a video obtained by Campus Reform.

“I’m not here to argue whether it’s public or private.”

“We have free speech zones,” Lauren Adamo, director of Student Life, tells Sixto before hopping on the phone with campus police.

Sixto said Adamo was at another table nearby helping students register to vote, when she randomly approached to ask Sixto if she had permission to be there.

“Hi, there’s a woman in the breezeway and she’s not authorized to be here,” Sixto can be heard saying on the phone with campus police.

Sixto continues to recruit students while Adamo waits for police to arrive, and can be heard pitching her organization’s stance on free speech.

“We believe in free speech,” said Sixto. “We’re against ridiculous free speech zones on public universities, which they are actually trying to enforce here.”

Later in the video, Miami Dade College police officers arrive, and Sixto explained to them that she should be free to recruit without approval given she was in a public area.

“In a public university you can table; you can be in any area that’s considered public,” she stated. “So this is a public sidewalk, just like those other organizations that are considered registered.”

The camera pans to show three other groups with tables on the same pathway.

Sixto continues, “It doesn’t matter if it’s an administration rule, the school can actually get in trouble for having free speech zones or for removing people from a public area just because they’re not a registered student organization.”

“Everyone has rules,” one officer responds. “Right now you’re gonna have to leave.”

“We’re not telling you that you can’t do this, but there are procedures,” the other officer chimes in.

According to the MDC Manual of Procedure, outside organizations have to receive 15 days advance approval and pay a daily table fee of $100. Administrators also have the right to limit outside organizations to one visit per month or to deny the visit request due to “space availability.”

Main Stream Press hands first debate to Trump?

No one was shocked when CNN (Clinton News Network) proclaimed Hillary Clinton the landslide victor of the first 2016 Presidential debate from Hofstra University in New York. At least CNN was honest enough to admit that their sampling was heavily weighted towards liberal viewers. That’s the most honest statement on CNN in decades. The only network in agreement is Lester Holt’s employer and debate host network NBC.

But the snap-polling results from nearly every other “main stream” news outlet were shocking, to say the least.

DRUDGE                              TRUMP 81% – CLINTON 18%

Now, as a lifelong hardcore terminal conservative capitalist who has spent over 20 years writing about the crimes, corruption and treason of career criminals like Hillary and her sexual predator husband Bill, I personally wanted to see Hillary dragged off the stage by her heels as her head bounced down the staircase.

Instead, what I saw was the typically nasty Clinton taking unfounded and unchallenged personal pot shots at Trump while Trump had clearly followed advice to hold the high ground, even making sure that he was referring to Hillary in an acceptable form as Madam Secretary, sort of like addressing Queen Elizabeth or Chairman Mao.

No, the knock out I had personally hoped to see just wasn’t there. So, how do I interpret the amazing snap-poll data above, wherein every major news outlet except CNN and NBC conceded the debate to, as Hillary calls him with great disrespect and disregard, “Donald?”

I spoke with a number of viewers this morning to glean some sense of the polling results, which seemed at odds with my own personal assessment of Trump’s performance.

In my view, Trump neither helped nor harmed himself in the first debate, and maybe that was the goal. It was almost (I said almost) like watching milquetoast Mitt all over again. But clearly, in poll after poll, others saw the event quite differently.

Was something happening here that I missed?

Drudge, Breitbart and Fox affiliate polls were easily anticipated as news outlets that enjoy the support of a conservative leaning audience. But the rest are absolutely shocking, especially known left leaning publications like TIME, San Diego Tribune and the Washington Times.

What is causing all of these polls to proclaim Trump the winner of a somewhat lack-luster debate?

In speaking with a number of viewers this morning, who are not political writers or activists, what I learned was quite interesting.

From the females I spoke with, Trumps refusal to dive into the gutter with Hillary and return personal attacks against her family in like kind to Hillary’s personal attacks, made Trump more “likeable” among women. He needed that!

Let’s face it… despite Hillary being the “first woman presidential candidate in history,” most American women have known that Hillary is not at all pro-women, ever since she verbally abused and assaulted countless women who accused her husband of sexual assault and rape since his college years. No one has ever treated women worse than Hillary Clinton, over forty years of defending her sexual predator husband’s bad behaviors.

So Hillary’s false accusations about Trump treating women poorly fell on the deaf ears of women across the country who had heard Hillary attack woman after woman, every time her husband was caught in another sexual tryst.

As for the men I spoke with, Trump’s point about Hillary making the same promises for thirty years in politics without ever keeping even one of those promises, rang true and relevant. It is a fact that Hillary Clinton has been using the same political talking points for thirty years now, without ever delivering on any of the promises made as a lifelong political operator.

Then I spoke to a few from the black community… who know that what Trump is saying about the Democrat Party as a whole failing the black community, is also true, and they are sick of hearing the same old promises from Democrats. So once again, Hillary’s efforts to appear concerned about them also fell on deaf ears.

So maybe I was wrong… Maybe Trump didn’t need to bludgeon Clinton into dust in order to win the first debate. Maybe he just needed to let Hillary act like the mean-spirited conniving liar she is, while he simply stayed on his message of ridding this nation of all career politicos who are just like her.

Maybe Trump’s number one job in the first debate was to become “likeable” rather than provide the anti-Trump media with more ammunition to paint him as “unlikeable.”

In the end, the snap polls tell the story…

When even lifelong Democrats like Andrew Stein cross the aisle to support Trump, something magical is happening. Maybe all of those millions of pro-American prayers for a new way forward in America are being answered… and maybe, the Clinton Dynasty is collapsing right under Hillary and her adoring press.

Stay tuned for my next column – Fact Checking Lester Holt!

Will Hillary open refugee flood gates even wider if elected? Answer: Yes!

Yes, I believe they will!

Today, October 1, 2016 is the opening day of the last of Obama’s driving efforts to change America by changing its people.

A few weeks ago he presented to Congress his determination to admit 110,000 refugees from around the world over the next 12 months with the largest numbers coming from the Middle East and Muslim-controlled countries of Africa.

But, if Hillary is elected president on November 8th, Obama will look like a piker.

hillary-clinton-50-points-ahead-unhinged-620x465

Hillary Clinton

No where did Obama ever say he wanted 65,000 Syrians admitted to the US, but Hillary is on record (Face the Nation, September 2015) saying that, and I am guessing that will only be the beginning for her.

After all, she just this week said that the foreign leader she admired most is German Chancellor Angela Merkel.  Merkel!!! who is widely believed to be destroying Germany and has thrown all of Europe in chaos with her ‘welcome’ of any refugee from Africa and the Middle East who can get there!

Remember the other day I wrote about the fact that the number determined by the President at the end of the fiscal year for the following year is a ceiling set by the President in consultation with Congress.

‘Consultation’ is a squishy term as we have seen for the last 35 years and is virtually non-existent (except for a brief chit chat between the Secretary of State and two key committees on the Hill).  Each September, the President sends up his refugee numbers for the upcoming year and for years Congress simply slipped his plan into a drawer somewhere and never even held hearings.  Senator Sessions’ hearing last fall (2015) was the first since 9/11.

The only real power the Congress has is to limit the funding for the federal agencies involved, something I have never seen done!

So, back to Hillary and the power of the Presidency as it relates to this law.

One of Hillary’s long time political allies is John Podesta, Chairman of her 2016 Presidential campaign. Do you know that his organization (an organization Hillary helped create with George Soros) proposed an AIRLIFT in 2009 of 100,000 Iraqis to America which they pushed on the new President Obama? He didn’t bite.

The plan called for Iraqis to be held offshore somewhere until they could be processed in to the US.  More recently Canada’s boy Trudeau airlifted tens of thousands of Syrians to Canada.  If President, could Hillary do this? Yes she can!

Refugee Act’s emergency provision

There is a very clear provision, which I don’t think has been used (the large crush of Vietnamese came before theRefugee Act of 1980 became law), but I think Hillary will use it.  By defeating Donald Trump, she will feel she has a mandate to open our borders. There definitely won’t be a border fence built and I predict she will use every lawful means available to admit as many migrants as she can, including the emergency provisions of the Refugee Act of 1980.

Could she add her 65,000 Syrians to the 110,000 refugees Obama proposed for FY2017, or could she go even higher?  Yes, she could knowing that the Congress, even if Republicans still hold the majority, is weak and will be further demoralized by her win.

Heck her role model, Mama Merkel, admitted over a million in the last year. Not to look ‘unwelcoming’ by comparison, Hillary could easily bump our numbers up to a quarter of a million!  (That would be in addition to the masses of asylum seekers—-phony refugees—now streaming across our southern border.)

See here (Refugee Act of 1980):

screenshot-29

Consultation with Congress, big deal! No teeth! And, I expect no fight if Hillary is in the White House!

Will Hillary go there? Yes, I believe she will.

Fraud, Waste and Abuse: Taxpayers funding Somalis’ vacationing in Somalia [for months!]

You cannot make this up! Virtually all Somalis who live in the U.S. came here (we are told) as poor refugees (there are going on 200,000 of them). So how persecuted and fearful of returning home are they if many travel back and forth to Africa and the taxpayers of Minneapolis cover most of their rent while they are gone!

By the way, Somalis are not the only (fake) persecuted and impoverished ‘refugees’ who go ‘home’ for visits from time to time.

This is the story at the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

Public housing residents in Minneapolis will no longer need to pay their normal monthly rent when travel abroad erases their income, a change particularly sought by East African immigrants.

warsame-dayton1

Minnesota Governor Dayton (left) with Warsame. Dayton said, “if you don’t like our Somalis, you can move to another state.”

The board of the Minneapolis Public Housing Authority approved this week reverting to its previous policy of collecting only minimal rent during extended absences. The change takes effect once approved by federal housing officials, which is expected by year’s end.

Abdi Warsame, a City Council member, told the board that the policy in place for the past five years works a particular hardship on elderly East Africans who must save for long periods if they want to visit their homelands. He said that many receive federal Supplemental Security Income, which is halted when the recipient is outside the United States.

Yet the policy required people to keep paying rent, which is income-based. Travelers gone for 30 to 90 days could apply for a hardship, which meant that they paid the minimum $75 monthly rent during their absence, but were required to make up the difference between that and their normal rent over the next year or two.

The change will mean that residents will pay only the $75 minimum per month, assuming they apply for the hardship status. [Hardship status! Hardship status! How many of you have airfare money to fly to Africa?—ed]

From 50 to 75 public housing residents report such absences annually, according to Mary Boler, an agency manager. She said the cost of the change will be less than $50,000. The agency found that the paperwork burden of tracking repayment was higher than anticipated.

“This was brought up to us again and again and again in every building we visited in our ward,” Warsame said. “Everybody was afraid to leave the country.”  [But they weren’t afraid to go home to Somalia the country they supposedly escaped from???—ed]

We are such suckers!

By the way, one reason given for travel is the Hajj (it lasts 4 days not 30-90 days).

Additionally, I wonder is some Somali community activist group getting grants from the feds like the one in Maine.

Law Enforcement’s Failure to Understand Radical Islam

On Saturday evening, September 20, 2016, a pressure cooker bomb exploded in a dumpster in New York’s Chelsea district.  The bomb was powerful enough to blow the heavy steel container more than 120 feet through the air and metal fragments from the explosion were found more than 600 feet away. Thirty-one people were injured.

Within hours, NYPD officers found the bomber, radical Islamist Ahmad Khan Rahami, asleep in a doorway.  After a brief exchange of gunfire, Rahami was arrested and taken into custody.  In a subsequent interview, Rahami’s father explained that, in 2014, he informed New Jersey police that his son was a terrorist.  The father explained, “Two years ago I go to the FBI because my son was doing really bad, O.K.?  But they check almost two months, they say, ‘He’s O.K., he’s clean, he’s not a terrorist.’ I say O.K… Now they say he is a terrorist. I say O.K.”

It is a story that is repeated time and time again.  The once highly-touted  FBI, as symbolized by men such as J. Edgar Hoover and Elliott Ness, and as portrayed by Efrem Zimbalist. Jr. in the long-running television series, The FBI, has suffered a major loss of credibility in recent decades.  The bureau’s unprofessional mishandling of episodes such as Ruby Ridge, Idaho; the Branch Davidian siege at Waco, Texas; the Oklahoma City bombing, and, most recently, the politically tainted bungling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation, has caused the bureau to lose much of its reputation as the world’s foremost law enforcement agency.

In the Ruby Ridge incident in 1992…in which the U.S. Marshals Service and the FBI laid siege to the mountain residence of Randy Weaver and his family… his wife, Vicki; his son, Sammy; the family dog, Striker; and Deputy Marshal William Degan lost their lives.  The federal agents were attempting to serve a weapons warrant on Weaver, charging him (falsely) with having sold a sawed-off shotgun to a neighbor.  When Weaver refused to cooperate with the federal agents a 12-day standoff ensued in which several hundred federal agents surrounded the Weaver cabin.

On April 19, 1993, a 51-day siege of the Branch Davidian compound near Waco, Texas, came to a violent end.  The Branch Davidians were suspected of weapons violations, and when they refused service of a federal warrant Attorney General Janet Reno gave the order to attack with military-style weaponry.  The authorities, including members of the ATF, the FBI, and the Texas National Guard, set fire to the Branch Davidian compound and 83 members of the religious sect… men, women, and children… and four ATF agents lost their lives.  Most burned to death.

Exactly two years later, on April 19, 1995, a team of Islamic terrorists, with the assistance of American anti-government activists Timothy McVeigh and Larry Nichols, bombed the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City.  However, as local authorities and investigative  journalists produced irrefutable evidence pointing to the involvement of radical Sunni Muslims, former members of Saddam Hussein’s Republican Guard, FBI agents placed their hands behind their backs, refusing to consider or even take custody of the evidence.  FBI agents also ordered surveillance cameras removed from nearby buildings and confiscated the associated video tapes, none of which have ever been produced, even under court order.

This occurred at a time when federal investigators on the scene were given instructions from the Clinton White House and Janet Reno’s Justice Department… at the insistence of radical leftists at the Southern Poverty Law Center… that they were to divert their attention from the pursuit of Middle Eastern terrorists, concentrating instead on members of domestic right wing militia groups.  As a result of the FBI’s mishandling of the Oklahoma City bombing investigation, their handling of the terror attack, which focused only on McVeigh and Nichols, has become the  “conventional wisdom.”  The explosion killed 168 people and injured more than 680 others.

In early 2011, Russian authorities warned the FBI that Boston Marathon bomber, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, may have been a radical Islamist.  The FBI acknowledged that it had investigated the Chechen immigrant.  However, after interviewing him and members of his family they could find no evidence of terrorist activity.  But then, on April 15, 2013, Tsarnaev and his younger brother, Dzhokhar, planted two pressure cooker bombs near the finish line of the Boston Marathon and walked away.  When the bombs exploded, 3 spectators were killed and some 264 others were injured.

On June 12, 2016, Omar Mateen, a heavily armed radical Islamist, opened fire inside a popular Orlando, Florida, nightclub, killing 49 and wounding 53 others.  The FBI was informed of his radical views in 2013.  However, when agents put him under surveillance they could find no hard evidence of terrorist activity.  They dropped the investigation.

There are many more such examples on the record in which the FBI was forewarned about potential terrorists, leading many Americans to conclude that the bureau has become either sloppy or incompetent.  But is that a fair assessment?  What are the chances that an FBI background check, along with surveillance and a series of interviews, would provide hard evidence of planned terrorist activity?  The chances are very slim.

And what are the chances that, if informed by the FBI that a certain individual is under suspicion of terrorist activity, local authorities could intervene successfully?  Again, the chances are very slim.  In the absence of evidence of an actual crime, local police are limited in what they can do to prevent terrorist activity.  Even when there is strong suspicion, local police must first provide a court with reasonable cause before a telephone tap or a search warrant can be authorized.

It is in this gray area, between mere suspicion and deadly terrorist activity, that radical Islamists operate, skillfully using our laws and our system of justice against us.  So who are these people who kill and maim so indiscriminately?  Who are these terrorists who gleefully behead their enemies, douse them with gasoline and burn them alive, or place them in steel cages and lower them into deep water?  Who are these religious fanatics who welcome death and who cherish death over life?  Who are these extremists who dutifully swear allegiance to a prophet who has commanded them to either kill or convert every other human being on Earth?  Who are these militants who have been actively pursuing a goal of world dominion for more than 1400 years?

Those of us who have been born and raised in western Christian or Judeo cultures have difficulty getting inside the minds of such people.  However, what is most helpful is a study of the genetic makeup of Islamists and the impact that 1400 years of inbreeding, in which cousins marry first cousins, has had on an entire religious sect.

One published report tells us, “Medical research suggests that, while British Pakistanis are responsible for 3% of all births, they account for one in three British children born with genetic illnesses.  The question arises, could the practice of interbreeding be the key to the success and longevity of Islam?  Could it be that the genetic and mental illnesses, borne of interbreeding, are a factor in the unquestioning nature of the majority of Muslims regarding religion?  Successive generations of cousin marriage damage the genes and produce widespread idiocy and insanity.”

Nicolai Sennels, a Danish psychologist and recognized expert on Muslim inbreeding, writes that, “This practice, which has been prohibited in the Judeo-Christian tradition since the days of Moses, was sanctioned by Muhammad and has been going on now for 50 generation in the Muslim world… This practice of inbreeding will never go away in the Muslim world since Muhammad is the ultimate example and authority on all matters, including marriage.  The massive inbreeding in Muslim culture may well have done virtually irreversible damage to the Muslim gene pool, including extensive damage to its intelligence, sanity, and health.”

Sennels explains that close to half of the world’s 1.4 billion Muslims are inbred.  In Pakistan, the number approaches 70%.  In the U.K., roughly 50% of Pakistani immigrants are married to first cousins.  In Saudi Arabia, 67%; in Jordan and Kuwait, 64%; in Sudan 63%; in Iraq, 60%; and in the Emirates and Qatar, 54%.  The risk of having an IQ lower than 70, the official threshold for being declared “retarded,” increases by roughly 400% among children of cousin marriages.

Mental illness is also a product of inbreeding.  Sennels tells us that “the closer the blood relative, the higher the risk of schizophrenic illness.  The increased risk of insanity may explain why more than 40% of the patients in Denmark’s biggest ward for the criminally insane have an immigrant background.”

As matters now stand, we in the West are being bombarded with propaganda aimed at making Islam acceptable in civilized cultures.  It is arguable that Western Europe is already lost because they have been invaded by millions of Muslim immigrants.  It is only in Eastern Europe where political leaders have taken a firm stand against Muslim immigration.  We can only hope that American political leaders will also come to their senses.  Until western leaders come to grips with the fact that it is impossible for non-Muslims to ever live side-by-side with Muslims, it behooves us to separate ourselves from them.  Until we dispense with the “turn the other cheek” approach favored by liberal political leaders and journalists, and until we can all agree that Islam is not a “religion of peace,” Islam will continue its relentless jihad against the West.

Since there is no reasonable prospect for either an intellectual or a military victory over Islam, the next president should, as his first official act, implement 8 USC 1182(f), which reads, “Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or non-immigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.”

Given the nature of the radical Islamic threat, it is clear that we don’t need more law-making; what we need is more law enforcement.
