America Is Helpless Against Cyber-Terrorism


This is serious. For registered voters living in Arizona or Illinois, there is a strong possibility that they may have been compromised. The FBI is looking into whether or not  other states may have been attacked as well.

These infiltrations can have many intents--identity theft, harassment, voter fraud, etc.


One need not be a blogger, columnist, or known activist on the Internet to be in the cross hairs of cyber crime.

In this day and age, anyone one who breathes, is a target one way or another.


  • The Federal Bureau of Investigations has found breaches to the voter registration databases in Arizona and Illinois.
  • These databases contain voter’s information, such as names, home addresses, driver’s license or identification numbers, and party affiliations.
  • The FBI is looking into other states as well to see if they have been compromised. 
  • Officials have also warned that this may have just been a warmup and could signal a much larger hack in our nation’s future.

The Federal Bureau of Investigations reported that they found breaches in the voter registration databases of two states, Arizona and Illinois, and is strongly urging the states to increase their cybersecurity ahead of the November presidential election.

The FBI didn’t say exactly what was taken, but that it appeared to be the personal information of registered voters. Voters tend to give their names, home addresses, driver’s license or identification numbers, and party affiliations when they register to vote. This is the information that the FBI believes was targeted and stolen.

The FBI did not think that the vote itself had been tampered with, but of course, this is a possibility with voting machines that they are always aware of.

Without giving away much information, the Bureau did say that they were looking into the possibility that other states had also been compromised or targeted.

Over the past couple of years, our intelligence agencies have become increasingly worried about our weaknesses to cyber attacks, particularly from countries like China and Russia. After all, Russia is now believed to be behind the stolen emails from the Democratic National Committee as well as one of their hackers stealing all of Hillary Clinton’s emails off of her private server. Cyber security experts have even accused the hackers of working within the Russian government, an accusation that the Kremlin denies.

These attacks are coming with more frequency and they are quickly becoming the new normal for information leaks.

More Big Money Fueling Social Anarchy

















Plentiful amounts of organizational and foundation money is supporting movements like the BLM which are definitely not constructive and peaceful but rather seek to actively undermine America's social fabric by various means.  For Example

In case you missed this, The Ford Foundation has joined the ranks of deceit. More details on that in the following post.

Surely, these funding groups know what they are doing. Their actions are simply indicative of the true nature of the many elitists big money individuals and organizations who support de facto anarchy under the guise of philanthropy and social justice.

Organizations such as LGBTQ, Planned Parenthood, etc. as well as the push for Common Core, care not about the rights or education of their constituents. They use the mask of Social Justice to enact their true goal--the destruction of American culture in order to reach the endgame of "Global Governance".

 
There is a plethora of information on these supporters in many sources far too numerous to discuss here. An excellent run down can be found in Discover The Networks, which is a first-rate go-to source. The reader will be amazed at how tightly the web of treachery has been woven.



Ford Foundation Funds BLM-Endorsed Group
by Amber Randall


The Ford Foundation has created a fund in partnership with another organization that is dedicated to funding a group affiliated with the Black Lives Matter movement, according to recent reports.

The Ford Foundation, which is not affiliated to the Ford Motor Company, is investing in the Black-Led Movement Fund, reports Fortune. The Black-Led Movement Fund was created by the Ford Foundation in partnership with the Borealis Philanthropy, Movement Strategy Center, and Benedict Consulting.

According to its website, the Black-Led Movement Fund seeks to “support philanthropic and field-building activities that strengthen the next generation of social justice leaders.”

The Black Led-Movement Foundation provides money and other resources to organizations that are focused on “black, queer, feminists and immigrant leaders who are shaping and leading a national conversation about criminalization, policing and race in America.” 


The fund also tries to assist the Movement for Black Lives. The Black Lives Matter network endorsed the group’s latest platform and they fight for many of the same causes.

WH Administration Hands Over The Internet To Global Governance


 Call to action:  CRISIS: Internet to Have Global Governance October 1. Call Congress!

We have been heading down the Highway To Hell for several decades. During the past 10 years, the speed has been upped to full throttle. 

Should the U.S. lose control of the internet, we will literally have been pushed through the gates into the abyss from which there will be no escape.

The voices of freedom will be silenced. News Speak, double think, and group think will be the norm. Those who will not comply will be "dealt with".   


Better Censorship for Tyrants
by
  • The U.S. announced its plan to pass the oversight of the agency to a global governance model on October 1, 2016. The Obama Administration says that the transition will have no practical effects on the internet's functioning or its users, and even considers the move necessary in order to maintain international support for the internet and to prevent a fracturing of its governance. Oh really?
  • The absence of the U.S. in overseeing the governance of the internet could spell the end of the current era of free speech on the internet, as well as free enterprise.
  • What guarantees are there that internet governance will not eventually end up in the hands of those very governments, seeing as they are all very eager to gain control of it? None. The Geneva Declaration of Principles makes clear that the UN, run by a majority of authoritarian governments, wants a decisive role for governments in internet governance.
  • Civil society groups and activists are calling on Congress to sue the Obama Administration -- perhaps at least to postpone the date until more Americans are aware of the plan. It is not too late.

Very soon, on October 1, 2016, much of the internet's governance will shift from the US National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) authority to a nonprofit multi-stakeholder entity, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, also known by its acronym ICANN.

Until now, NTIA has been responsible for key internet domain name functions, such as the coordination of the DNS (Domain Name System) root, IP addresses, and other internet protocol resources. But in March 2014, the U.S. announced its plan to let its contract with ICANN to operate key domain name functions expire in September 2015, passing the oversight of the agency to a global governance model. The expiration was subsequently delayed until October 1, 2016.
According to the NTIA's press release at the time,
"NTIA's responsibility includes the procedural role of administering changes to the authoritative root zone file – the database containing the lists of names and addresses of all top-level domains – as well as serving as the historic steward of the DNS. NTIA currently contracts with ICANN to carry out the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) functions and has a Cooperative Agreement with Verisign under which it performs related root zone management functions. Transitioning NTIA out of its role marks the final phase of the privatization of the DNS as outlined by the U.S. Government in 1997".
According to the NTIA, from the inception of ICANN, the U.S. government and internet stakeholders envisioned that the U.S. role in the IANA functions would be temporary. The Commerce Department's June 10, 1998 Statement of Policy stated that the U.S. government "is committed to a transition that will allow the private sector to take leadership for DNS management." The official reason, therefore, is that
"ICANN as an organization has matured and taken steps in recent years to improve its accountability and transparency and its technical competence. At the same time, international support continues to grow for the multi-stakeholder model of Internet governance as evidenced by the continued success of the Internet Governance Forum and the resilient stewardship of the various Internet institutions".
The Obama Administration says that the transition will have no practical effects on the internet's functioning or its users, and even considers the move necessary in order to maintain international support for the internet and to prevent a fracturing of its governance.

Oh really?

While the transition may appear ostensibly "technical", the absence of the United States in overseeing the governance of the internet could spell the end of the current era of free speech on the internet, as well as free enterprise.

This is not merely wild speculation; it is evident in the statements that several governments, who are less than enchanted with the concept of freedom of speech, have made in recent years regarding the governance of the internet.

Some of these statements have come to light in the preparatory work of the United Nations World Summit on Information Society, known today as WSIS+10 -- a process that began in 2003 with the Geneva Declaration of Principles and that continues to this day. Purportedly, the purpose of the process is a "commitment to build a people-centred, inclusive and development-oriented Information Society, where everyone can create, access, utilize and share information and knowledge" (section A.1), but already in section B.1 it becomes clear that the UN, run by a majority of authoritarian governments, wants a decisive role for governments in internet governance:
"Governments, as well as private sector, civil society and the United Nations and other international organizations have an important role and responsibility in the development of the Information Society and, as appropriate, in decision-making processes. Building a people-centred Information Society is a joint effort which requires cooperation and partnership among all stakeholders".
The UN, in the form of International Telecommunication Union (ITU), has already tried in vain to wrestle control of the internet from ICANN, but where the ITU failed, WSIS+10 may succeed with the new "global governance" ICANN, unshielded from the protection of the US.
The urge of various governments to control the internet is evidently there. If anything, this was clear from the submissions for the December 2015 WSIS+10 UN General Assembly High Level Meeting.
The written submission of the Group of 77 plus China -- a coalition, dating from 1964, of developing countries that now includes 134 nations -- stated that, "The management of the Internet involves both technical and public-policy issues and ... the overall authority for Internet related public policy issues is the sovereign right of States."
China's individual submission was even more interesting. It stated that,

Recognition Of The Enemy Inside the Gates: Too Little Too Late?



“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”― Marcus Tullius Cicero


Cicero's observation proves that, over the course of history, nothing has changed in terms of human behavior. Out of sheer ignorance, those who are in denial will seldom if ever recognize a malevolent presence, cloaked in admirable intent, in their midst and will, in effect, support it. Those who are in collusion with such a presence will also deny it, out of treachery.

Those who sound the Clarion are excoriated, marginalized, belittled, and/or dismissed.

Readers who are familiar with this saga are aware of the reaction Michelle Bachmann received when she attempted to raise awareness on the entire issue and Huma in particular. (More on that in the following post).


Unfortunately, even though the MSM is finally being forced to acknowledge at least some the truth of what the alternative press has been documenting all along, it may be too late for those who were unaware to become not only fully informed, but to be able to digest what they are finding out. Some will recognize the truth, others will remain in denial and/or succumb to outrage over the revelation that their idols have feet of clay or are, in fact, traitors.


Huma Abedin Fights for LESS Rights for Women and Gays:

This is not some accidental association. Ms. Abedin was, for many years, listed as an associate editor of the London-based publication and wrote for the journal while working as an intern in the Clinton White House in the mid-1990s.

Her mother, Saleha Abedin, sits on the Presidency Staff Council of the International Islamic Council for Da’wa and Relief, a group that is chaired by the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi.


Perhaps recognizing how offensive such ties will be to voters concerned over future terrorist attacks on this country by radical Muslims professing allegiance to Sharia law, the Clinton campaign on Monday tried to downplay Ms. Abedin’s involvement in the Journal and the Muslim Brotherhood.
 

The Clinton surrogate group Media Matters claimed predictably there was “no evidence” that Ms. Abedin or her family had ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, and that Trump campaign staffers who spoke of these ties were conspiracy theorists.

To debunk the evidence, Media Matters pointed to a Snopes.com “fact-check” piece that cited as its sole source… Senator John McCain. This is the same John McCain who met Libyan militia leader Abdelkarim Belhaj, a known al Qaeda associate, and saluted him as “my hero” during a 2011 visit to Benghazi.


Senator McCain and others roundly criticized Rep. Michele Bachmann in 2012 when she and four members of the House Permanent Select Committee Intelligence and the House Judiciary Committee cited Ms. Abedin in letters sent to the Inspectors General of the Department of Defense, Department of State, Department of Justice, Department of Homeland Security, and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, warning about Muslim Brotherhood infiltration of the United States government....


In response to those critiques, Rep. Bachmann laid out the evidence in a 16-page memo, which has never been refuted by Senator McCain or the elite media.


The evidence, in my opinion, is overwhelming: Huma Abedin is nothing short of a Muslim Brotherhood princess, born into an illustrious family of Brotherhood leaders.

U.S. Communists fret as some progressives shun Hillary

 The Communist Party USA (CPUSA)  has infiltrated the Democrat Party far more than most realize. Its influence has been steady and pernicious like a slow growing cancer. It has now taken over the entire body politic in varying degrees. Although much of the electorate remains uninformed or in denial as to this phenomenon, many exist who do recognize that something is not quite right with the Dems.

Numerous progressives remain idealistic and cannot neither relate nor stomach what they are seeing in the present party as corruption, hypocrisy, and betrayal. (Many in the GOP have the same disgust with their party, but that is another story).


Witness the rise of Bernie Sanders. Was it because his supporters were true hard core Socialists/Communists or because they were fed up with leaders who talked out of both sides of their mouths and saw him as "the real thing".

The following post discusses the dismay of the CPUSA over the fact that not all Dems seem willing to support Hillary. They are concerned. She must win in November in order for the agenda begun in earnest by the present WH occupant to continue.   

These voters have apparently abandoned Hillary and possibly the party.

 

'They deeply despise her ties to Wall Street and call her a warmonger and a liar'

WASHINGTON – How deep and wide is the Communist Party USA’s support for Hillary Clinton?

It’s unambiguous. It’s 100 percent. And it’s uncompromising.

A new editorial on the party’s home page calls any thoughts about voting for the Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein or not voting for the top of the Democratic ticket “a flawed strategy.”

The CPUSA, birthed by Josef Stalin’s pocketbooks and sustained through the fall of the Soviet Union by KGB subsidies, is all in for Hillary.

The party is also excited about America’s corporate press jumping on the bandwagon with support for its candidate.

“Unprecedented early endorsements of Clinton have appeared in the Washington Post and Houston Chronicle, which described Trump as a ‘danger to the Republic,'” the editorial states with approval. “Many refer to Trump as an extreme authoritarian or worse, as a fascist.”

On the other hand, the Democrats meet the political litmus test with flying rainbow colors:

“The message from the DNC was the polar opposite. It reflected the broad electoral coalition backing Clinton, including the labor movement, African American, Latino, Asian and other communities of color, women, the LGBT community, youth, environmentalists, immigrant and disabled rights advocates.”

However, the CPUSA is concerned that not all ‘progressives” are on board for Clinton.

“But there are still some progressives, including some Bernie or Bust activists, who refuse to support Clinton,” the editorial says. “They deeply despise her ties to Wall Street and call her a warmonger and a liar. They see nothing positive in Clinton, her historic candidacy or the Democratic Party platform. They dismiss the broad electoral coalition, including the labor movement, that is backing Clinton and that has shaped the platform, a coalition with obvious leverage. To them, she is as bad as Trump.”

It continues: “Some are voting for Green Party candidate Jill Stein to ‘send a message.’ Still others hope a Clinton defeat provokes a crisis in the Democratic Party leading to its break-up.”



Jill Stein of the Green Party

Sounding like a press release from the DNC, the Communist Party editorial explains: “This is a flawed strategy. First, like it or not, we have a two party system. One of the two major parties will win and govern. If this were a parliamentary democracy different tactics would be called for.”

“To call for a vote against Clinton is to separate oneself from this electoral coalition,” it states.

Not only do the Communists want Hillary to win, they want her to win big, explaining “mandates are real. This election will be a national referendum on racism, misogyny, homophobia, xenophobia and Islamophobia. The aim should be a landslide defeat of Trump and a decisive rejection of hate. The election of Clinton as the first woman president would make history. A landslide would not end sexism, but it would represent a mighty blow just as the election of President Obama was a blow against racism. It would advance democracy. A landslide makes it more likely that GOP congressional and state legislative majorities can be ousted and an end put to the politics of obstruction. Most people tend to vote straight ticket.”

“A landslide will give added weight to the progressive platform adopted at the Democratic Convention and give encouragement to appoint progressive Supreme Court justices,” the editorial continues. “It would be added pressure against backsliding on opposition to TPP and other trade deals. It will put public opinion and the movements in a better position to pressure against Clinton’s tendency toward military adventurism and policies of regime change.”

Again, the CPUSA warns off against voting Green.

“Voting Green Party separates activists and voters from these key forces,” the editorial says. “One cannot credibly engage in mobilizations of labor, civil rights, women’s organizations, LGBT community, and environmentalists while also advocating voting Green Party.”

The Communist Party “press” was out in force at the Democratic National Convention in full support of the Dems and their nominee from the beginning.

Joseph Farah, the founder of WND.com and a former revolutionary communist himself in his youth, said the CPUSA’s coverage was so effusive in its enthusiasm it put MSNBC to shame.

The Portentous Soros Saga Continues

Is there any major political/financial world event that Ole George does not have a hand in? The answer is an alarming NO. Go here for a complete rundown of his agenda and connections.
 

His tentacles have spread over the globe, and his vision is nightmarish to those who cherish the freedom of the sovereign state as well as of the individual rights of its citizens.

His malevolent agenda is hidden under a smooth velvet cloak of philanthropy and social justice. Beneath is a Hellish, totalitarian
dystopia from which there would be no escape should the globalists achieve their goal of world domination

The four articles below discuss his influence regarding:

1. His purpose behind pressuring the Obama administration into having the U.S. take in 100,000 refugees annually.

2. His push to have the chaos created by the massive refugee influx into Europe to be accepted as the "new normal" to further his agenda.


3. His being behind moveon.org, as well as his role in funding organizations, uprisings, and riots in areas of unrest including:  Ukraine, the Arab Spring, Ferguson, Baltimore, Occupy Wall Street, Black Lives Matter, and Democracy Spring

4. His role as one of Hillary Clinton’s biggest donors, He has also been  exposed in a massive hack for manipulating elections in Europe via his non-government organizations


From:  Sharia Unveiled
TEL AVIV – Hacked documents from George Soros’s Open Society Institute state that the billionaire and his foundation helped to successfully press the Obama administration into increasing to 100,000 the total number of refugees taken in by the U.S. annually, Breitbart Jerusalem has found.
The documents reveal that the billionaire personally sent President Obama a letter on the issue of accepting refugees.
The hacked memo also shows that the billionaire’s foundation pressed the U.S. government to enact two other major policy objectives regarding the intake of Syrian refugees. A timeline demonstrates that at last one of those policies – providing more financing to overseas refugee efforts – was indeed implemented by the Obama administration, while it isn’t clear whether the administration was reacting directly to the Soros group’s campaign in that case.
The information was contained in a detailed 69-page Open Society report on the agenda of an Open Society U.S. Programs board meeting held in New York from October 1 to October 2, 2015. More

From:  The Daily Caller

A leaked memo from left-wing financier George Soros’s Open Society Foundations argues that Europe’s refugee crisis should be accepted as a “new normal,” and that the refugee crisis means “new opportunities” for Soros’ organization to influence immigration policies on a global scale.

OSF program officer Anna Crowley and program specialist Katin Rosin co-authored the May 12 memo, titled “Migration Governance and Enforcement Portfolio Review.” The memo focuses on an OSF program called the International Migration Initiative, which aims to influence immigration policy.

The nine-page review makes three key points: OSF — which doles out millions to left-wing causes — has been successful at influencing global immigration policy; Europe’s refugee crisis presents “new opportunities” for the organization to influence global immigration policy; and the refugee crisis is the “new normal.”

Open Society Foundations is successfully influencing global immigration policy.  More

Voting Machines Easily Hacked: Can We Say Rigged Elections?



Paper Ballots Anyone? Information from the following posts (three of many on this subject) demonstrates that both election rigging and ballot box stuffing were the norm in many places in the old days. For those of us who did not know, we now see that the Sequoia AVC Advantage, one of the oldest and most vulnerable electronic voting machines in the United States, is as secure as a home with no locks on its doors and the window left wide open. 


Just one case:  Electronic Voting Fraud Favoring Democrats Found In Illinois and Maryland.:
Kenric Ward reporting for Watchdog.org has found software problems in voting machines Illinois and in Maryland that just happen to switch the votes to Democrat from Republican. Voters are finding that after they mark their selection for a Republican on the electronic machine, it puts the “x” on the Democrat candidate above automatically and it happens as much as five times. If the voter isn’t paying attention, they would never know. 
This same exact problem is occurring in two states, Maryland and Illinois.

Illinois Republican state representative candidate Jim Moynihan went to the Schaumburg Public Library last Monday to vote for himself. “Instead, it cast the vote for my opponent,” Moynihan told Watchdog.org.

“You could imagine my surprise as the same thing happened with a number of races when I tried to vote for a Republican and the machine registered a vote for a Democrat,” Moynihan said.

He notified the election judge at his polling place.

Joe Torre, election director in Anne Arundel, called it a “calibration issue” involving a single machine. However, more than one machine was involved and it appears to be more of a software issue.

A software developer for US intelligence agencies told Newsmax that the calibration excuse defies credulity.

“It’s a software issue, and it’s incredibly suspicious that a bug like that could slip through accidentally. It defies belief,” said Tony Heller.
Donald Trump has voiced concerns that the election will be rigged. Well rigging seems to be a way of life in American elections. 

For a most famous example, there is documented proof of the classic Chicago way regarding how elections are stolen in Chicago.:
On December 14, 1984, Chief Judge Frank McGarr of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois publicly released the federal grand jury’s report on the 1982 election-only the third time in the history of the court that a grand jury report had been made public. The evidence revealed substantial vote fraud in Chicago during the November 2, 1982, election and found “that similar fraudulent activities have occurred prior to 1982.”

What particularly struck FBI agent Ernest Locker was how routine vote fraud was for the precinct captains, election judges, poll watchers, and political party workers he interviewed. They had been taught how to steal votes (and elections) by their predecessors, who had in turn been taught by their predecessors. Based on his investigation, Locker came to believe the claims, hotly debated among historians, that Mayor Daley threw the 1960 presidential election for John Kennedy with massive ballot stuffing in Chicago. This type of voter fraud, stated Locker, “was an accepted way of life in Chicago.”

Soon after the investigation started, it became evident that this was not a case of isolated wrongdoing, but rather a case of extensive, substantial, and widespread fraud in precincts and wards throughout Chicago.

This should jolt the reader:

When Princeton professor Andrew Appel decided to hack into a voting machine, he didn’t try to mimic the Russian attackers who hacked into the Democratic National Committee’s database last month. He didn’t write malicious code, or linger near a polling place where the machines can go unguarded for days.

Instead, he bought one online.

Iran's Expanding Terror Network in Latin America

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, is welcomed by Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez, in Havana, Cuba / AP
There have been concerns regarding Iran's growing influence in Latin America for several years. In view of its hostile behavior toward the U.S., the latest of which was of four ships belonging to Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) "harassing" an American destroyer in the Strait of Hormuz Tuesday.

Although the reasons behind surrender of the American sailors to the Iranians in January are unclear and downright questionable, it certainly gave the impression that America is just a paper tiger. 


Yes indeed, many names can be applied to "leading from behind"--indecisiveness. trepidation, cowardice, and possible treachery.

Obama's precious nuclear "deal" with the Iranians only seems to have emboldened them. They are becoming evermore aggressive and dangerous. Their provocative actions could eventually force an armed response which would ignite the Middle Eastern powder keg and could lead to WWIII.

They have been in our backyard for years, and fearless leader has chosen not to see them. 


What now?

Top Iranian official visits region, sparking concern about terror in U.S.

BY: Adam Kredo
August 23, 2016 5:00 am

Iran is solidifying its foothold in Latin America, sparking concerns among U.S. officials that the Islamic Republic will enlist these regional allies in its push to launch terror attacks on U.S. soil, according to conversations with congressional sources.

Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif has been on a diplomatic tour through key Latin American countries known for hostility towards the United States, including Cuba, Venezuela, and a host of other countries believed to be providing shelter to Iranian terrorist proxies such as Hezbollah.

As Iranian-ally Russia boosts its spy operation in the region, sources have raised concerns about the rogue nations working together to foster anti-U.S. unrest.

Zarif’s trip through the region has raised red flags among some senior congressional sources familiar with the region. For example, Zarif took aim at the United States and touted the regime’s desire to align with anti-American countries during his stay in Cuba.

One senior congressional source who works on the issue said to the Washington Free Beacon that Iran is seeking to recruit “potential terrorists who want to cause the U.S. harm.”

Increased ties between Iran and these Latin American nations are setting the stage for terrorists to penetrate close to U.S. soil with little detection.

These individuals “can travel easily to Venezuela, and once there, they can get to Nicaragua or Cuba without passports or visas, which poses a national security risk for our nation,” the source explained.

Iran has also reopened its embassy in Chile, a move that has only added fuel to speculation among U.S. officials that the Islamic Republic is making moves to position its global terror network on America’s doorstep.

“The threat to U.S. national security interests and our allies should be setting off alarm bells,” Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R., Fla.), chair of the House Subcommittee on the Middle East and North Africa, said in a statement about Zarif’s Latin American tour.

“The Obama administration has failed to prevent Russia and China from expanding in our Hemisphere, and now Iran is once again stepping up its efforts to gain a greater presence to carry out its nefarious activities,” Ros-Lehtinen said. “I urge the White House to stop downplaying the Iranian threat and take immediate action to prevent the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism from establishing a regional safe haven in the Americas.”

In Case You Missed This: Declassified 9/11 Pages Present Unnerving Scenario

The post following this commentary unearths some very unsettling facts.
 
Many had suspected Saudi complicity all along despite the fact that Bush continually bent over backwards to assure us that Islam was a religion of peace and that terrorists had hi-jacked it in order to justify their horrendous acts. To many, it was beginning to sound like the president "doth protest too much, methinks".

Add to that, early in Obama's administration comes the spectacle of his bowing to the Saudi King. That plus his Middle East apology tour were real attention getters.

The actions of both Presidents regarding Islam have left many Americans both confused and angry.

During the Bush administration there were suspicions that Washington DC was not completely on the side of the American people on this issue. Then Obama came along and ripped off the mask. He proved his duplicity over and over by his extolling of Islam as well as by the allowing of Muslim Brother Hood  influence and downright infiltration into the highest levels of our government.

The electorate has now fallen into two camps. One has become cynical and no longer trusts those who are supposed to have the welfare of the American nation state and it citizens as their priority. Many people know that something is terribly wrong. These cynical and disaffected citizens express their anger and distrust in various ways. 


The other camp remains unaware and/or completely blind as to what is truly happening. They continue to vote for the same criminals and traitors who put America at risk. 

Although there are some anarchists who support upheaval for various reasons, others simply do not understand what they are supporting--  so-called leaders who do not betray the nation out of stupidity but to pave the way for the elitist agenda.


5 Troubling Takeaways From The Declassified 9/11 Pages
by Benjamin Weingarten

The infamous 28 previously classified pages from Congress’ joint inquiry into intelligence activities surrounding 9/11 represent far more than a symbolic reckoning with a politically controversial history of apparent Saudi duplicity that the U.S. government felt it imperative to suppress.

As we continue to be struck by jihadists at home and abroad under an at best rudderless and at worst suicidal national security and foreign policy, the report’s substance is live, relevant and beckons critical questions that ought to be demanded by our representatives and the public at large. 


The document itself reads like a plot from Homeland, replete with a network of jihadist front groups, shell companies and mosques, and shady money transfers tracing back to the Saudi royal family including President George W. Bush’s friend Prince Bandar. It also includes numerous jihadi-linked Saudi officials (and nongovernment actors) including Osama bin Laden’s half-brother seemingly operating with impunity on American soil in spite of the intelligence community’s suspicions.

Why the federal government in general, and Bush and Obama administrations in particular, sought to keep such information from the public for 15 years is a worthy question, as is the question of why law enforcement did not move to arrest and prosecute or deport many of the individuals associated with the 9/11 attack that were under investigation.

Hindsight is 20/20, it is an open secret that diplomatic officials in foreign countries frequently are involved in pernicious activities like espionage and are provided with certain privileges and immunities if not legally than politically derived. Intelligence and law enforcement officials must use their discretion as to whether to move on suspects or continue monitoring them in the hopes of uncovering bigger networks and threats.

But the suspicious activities and associations of the individuals described in these 28 pages are well beyond the pale, as are many of the report’s other findings.

Here are five of the most consequential points from the 28 declassified pages, along with the critical questions we must be demanding of our government:
