Nancy Pelosi Condemns Antisemitism – Poses With Jew-Hater Ilhan Omar On Rolling Stone Magazine Cover

Oh, the hypocrisy. But they fear not, for they know the media will clean up after them, like the man with the shovel following behind the circus elephant.

And on a related topic, why does Rolling Stone put notorious ISIS supporter and Jew-hater lhan Omar (D-MN), simple-minded antisemite and rabid Communist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), and Socialist (Medicare for all) Jahana Hayes (D-CT) on their front cover?

Over 100 new Congresspeople were elected in the mid-terms, but these are the vile chosen selected to be poster girls for the Democrats.

It’s not surprising. Remember when they did a Jim Morrison-like cover shot of the Boston jihad bomber?

Pelosi Poses Next To Ilhan Omar On Rolling Stone Cover

William Davis | Daily Caller, February 27, 2019:

Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is on the cover of the latest edition of “Rolling Stone” magazine alongside three Democratic freshman congresswoman, including Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Connecticut Rep. Jahana Hayes.

Omar recently came under fire from members of both parties, including Pelosi, after she used an anti-Semitic trope to slam Israel on Twitter saying that U.S. support for Israel is “all about the Benjamins baby.”

“Anti-Semitism must be called out, confronted and condemned whenever it is encountered, without exception,” Pelosi said in a joint statement with House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer and House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn earlier this month.

Pelosi, Hoyer and Clyburn also reiterated their support for Israel, saying, “We are and will always be strong supporters of Israel in Congress.”

Democratic leaders have rejected requests from Republicans to remove Omar from her spot on the prestigious Foreign Affairs Committee.

Omar’s controversial tweets also accused the pro-Israel lobbying group American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) of buying support for the Jewish state.

During her career, Omar has staked out a staunchly anti-Israel position. In 2012, she called the Jewish state “evil,” and accused them of having “hypnotized” the world. She is also a supporter of the movement to Boycott, Divest, and Sanction (BDS) Israel.

Following the backlash, Omar deleted many of her controversial tweets including the ones that caused a bipartisan firestorm earlier this month.

Jihad Reps Ilhan Omar & Rashida Tlaib First to Sign Pledge to Impeach Trump

Jihad in Congress. The Congressional ISIS caucus.

REPS. ILHAN OMAR (D-MN) AND RASHIDA TLAIB (D-MI) ARE THE FIRST MEMBERS OF CONGRESS TO SIGN ON TO A PLEDGE LAUNCHED BY A PROGRESSIVE ADVOCACY ORGANIZATION TO IMPEACH PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP.

ABC News producer Ben Siegel on Tuesday morning reported that the freshman congresswomen were first to back the pledge, which was organized by “By the People,” which bills itself a grassroots group that “came together because we saw that millions of Americans want the Trump Administration removed from office.”

“We are committed to ending this administration and creating a country that lives up to its founding ideals,” the group’s About Us section reads.

Tlaib made national headlines for remarks she made at a reception organized by progressive advocacy group MoveOn.org hours after being sworn in as a member of Congress, in which she vowed to remove President Trump from office, stating: “[W]e’re going to go in there and we’re going to impeach the motherfucker.”

Several top Democrats, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), criticized Tlaib’s coarse language but stopped short of bringing another sort of punishment against the Michigan Democrat.

Addressing the Michigan Veterans Foundation days after the incident, Tlaib refused to apologize for her profanity-laden pledge to impeach, instead expressing regret that the remark became a political “distraction.”

“I understand I am a member of Congress. And I don’t want anything that I do or say to distract us. That is the only thing I apologize for, is that it was a distraction,” she said. “We have a course that we have to stick to, and nothing I say should distract us from that. The shutdown has to be at the forefront, that’s what I am here for, to shift to. This is so much more important.”

In an interview with CNN’s New Day, then-Rep.-elect Omar said she believes President Trump gets “closer to being impeached” each passing day. “We know that this president, this administration, every day has gone a little bit closer to being impeached,” Omar told co-anchor John Berman.

Asked if she will demand the president face impeachment upon taking office, Omar replied: “If [special counsel Robert Mueller’s] report comes out and we keep having the breaking headlines every single day, I’m pretty sure that [impeachment] is going to call for itself.”

Omar and fellow freshman congresswoman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) defended Tlaib’s profanity-laced pledge to impeach the president on Showtime’s late-night talk show Desus & Merolast Thursday.

“I hit up Rashida. I sent her a text, and I was like, ‘Don’t worry about it. Who cares?’” Ocasio-Cortez told the comedians.

“The double standard in that is [Trump] never gets in trouble for all the booboo words he uses,” Omar chimed in.

Appearing on NBC News’ Today last month Pelosi echoed past statements on impeachment talk, telling host Savannah Guthrie that the Mueller report must first be released before any action is taken to remove the president.

“We have to wait and see what happens with the Mueller report. We shouldn’t be impeaching for a political reason, and we shouldn’t avoid impeachment for a political reason. So we’ll just have to see how it comes,” she said.

Omar and Tlaib have faced accusations of anti-Semitism since taking office, a charge the two deny despite their repeated offenses. Earlier February, Omar, a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, set off a firestorm of criticism for suggesting Republican lawmakers are bribed by the pro-Israel advocacy group American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) in exchange for supporting the Jewish state.

In 2012, the Minnesota Democrat tweeted: “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.”

Tlaib came under fire in January for suggesting senators backing an anti-boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) bill hold dual loyalties., tweeting: “They forgot what country they represent.” Days later, a photo emerged of Tlaib posing with Abbas Hamideh, a Hezbollah-backing activist, during her swearing-in reception in Detroit.

Both their remarks and ties to anti-Israel groups have left some Jewish leaders on edge.

“We are very concerned about some of the currents in the body politic, especially on the democratic left,” Malcolm Hoenlein, the CEO of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, told the Times of Israel.

Hamas-Linked CAIR Seeks To Stymie FBI Sharing Of Terror Watchlist

Although it poses as a “moderate,” “civil rights” organization, Hamas, aka CAIR, is anything but. Despite being named as unindicted co-conspirators in the largest terror funding trial in our nation’s history, they remain the number one go-to Islamic group for the leftist-elite media, and clearly for the social media monopolies as well.

Several CAIR officials have been convicted of participating in violent jihad activities.

So, it’s no surprise that terror-tied CAIR would seek to stymie FBI sharing of the terror watchlist.

“Hamas-linked CAIR seeks to stymie FBI sharing of terror watchlist,” World Israel News, February 21, 2019 (thanks to Mark):

A U.S.-based Muslim group called for a congressional investigation Wednesday after its lawsuit revealed that the U.S. government has shared access to parts of its terrorist watchlist with more than 1,400 private entities, including hospitals and universities.

The group, called Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), has been accused of links to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood and its director, Hussam Ayloush, in November tweeted that the Middle East would be better off if Israel were “terminated.”

The Council on American-Islamic Relations said Congress should look into why the FBI has given such wide access to the list. CAIR claims that dissemination of the names makes life more difficult for those who are wrongly included.

“To share private information of citizens and non-citizens with corporations is illegal and outrageous,” said CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad.

The FBI said in a statement Wednesday night that private groups only receive a subset of the terrorist watchlist called the Known or Suspected Terrorist List. It is unclear how significantly that narrows the list from the watchlist, which is formally known as the Terrorist Screening Center Database and includes hundreds of thousands of names.

Gadeir Abbas, lawyer for CAIR, said there is no evidence that the list of Known or Suspected Terrorists, or KST, is in any meaningful way less broad than the overall watchlist. Indeed, the articulated standard for inclusion on the watchlist is a reasonable suspicion of being a known or suspected terrorist.

The FBI statement says that any private agency accessing the list “must comply with agreements to ensure the security and confidentiality of the information. A requestor can only ask for information about a specific individual and cannot access all the data available in the KST File.”

Any private entity that comes in contact with a match from the list is instructed to contact the FBI’s Terrorist Screening Center for further instructions, the FBI said.

The council filed a lawsuit in 2016 challenging the list’s constitutionality and saying those wrongly placed on it routinely face difficulties in travel, financial transactions and their dealings with law enforcement.

In response to the lawsuit, a federal official recently acknowledged in a court filing that more than 1,400 private entities received access to the list.

For years, the government had insisted that it did not generally share the list with private organizations.

A hearing is scheduled in federal court for Friday on CAIR’s request that the government now detail exactly which entities have received access to the names. CAIR also wants to know what private organizations are doing with the watchlist information — whether, for example, it is influencing universities’ admissions decisions or is being used by hospitals to screen would-be visitors.

In depositions and in court hearings, government officials had denied until very recently that the watchlist compiled by the FBI’s Terrorist Screening Center is shared with private entities. At a hearing in September, government lawyer Dena Roth told U.S. District Judge Anthony Trenga that the Terrorist Screening Center “does not work with private partners, and that watchlist status itself … is considered law enforcement sensitive information and is not shared with the public.”

Despite that assurance, the judge ordered the government to be more specific about how it disseminates the watchlist. Trenga said the plaintiffs are entitled to the information to try to prove their case that inclusion on the list causes them to suffer “real world consequences.”…

Muslim Spy Indictment Reveals The Ineptitude Of America’s Witless Intelligence Agencies

The FBI is broken. Irrevocably. I know his plate is full, but President Trump must break it down and build it again. The Muslim spy case “highlights how broken the U.S. intelligence system has become.

For more than 30 years it has demonstrated an inability to keep secrets, to protect itself from foreign penetrations by hostile spy services, or to prevent current and former officials from defecting.”

AN INDICTMENT EXPOSES AMERICA’S WITLESS INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES

MONICA WITT ALLEGEDLY SPIED FOR IRAN—BUT SHE DEFECTED IN 2013, SO SHE’LL NEVER BE BROUGHT TO JUSTICE.

U.S. officials revealed last week that a federal grand jury indicted Monica Witt, a former Air Force counterintelligence official, on charges of passing extremely sensitive secrets to agents of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps.

The case highlights how broken the U.S. intelligence system has become. For more than 30 years it has demonstrated an inability to keep secrets, to protect itself from foreign penetrations by hostile spy services, or to prevent current and former officials from defecting.

The result: Brave foreign nationals who risk their lives inside harsh regimes to spy for America are being killed and imprisoned on a significant scale.

Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation officials portrayed Ms. Witt’s indictment as a victory of sorts, lauding the exposure of a foreign spy after a multiyear probe. Yet the real story is not Ms. Witt’s indictment but her defection to Iran in 2013. She brought with her details of a secret communications system American handlers use to talk to their recruited agents.

The FBI fumbled the case in 2012 by warning Ms. Witt she might be targeted for recruitment by Iranian intelligence. A trained counterspy, she knew that the tip-off meant she was under investigation and surveillance. It likely set in motion her flight to Iran a year later. As she boarded the plane, she texted her handler: “I’m signing off and heading out! Coming home.” Other texts reveal she “told all” to an Iranian ambassador in Central Asia and had plans to go public in the manner of renegade National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden.

The indictment is largely symbolic, since the prospects of bringing the case to trial are slim to none. But it is one way for the FBI to dispose of the matter.

Officials did not detail the impact of Ms. Witt’s betrayal. Jay Taub, the FBI’s assistant director for national security, would say only that she became an “ideological” defector after converting to Islam. Her actions, he added, inflicted “serious damage to national security.”

According to prosecutors, Ms. Witt worked at the Air Force Office of Special Investigations from 2003-08 and then as a contractor, running an ultrasecret Special Access Program, or SAP, until August 2010. The program gave her access to details about counterintelligence operations, true names of recruited agents, and identities of U.S. intelligence operatives in charge of recruiting foreign agents. One program “allowed agents to communicate in the open without disclosing the nature of their operations,” the indictment states.

Ms. Witt left the contractor in August 2010 for unspecified reasons. In May 2011, Iranian state media announced that 30 people had been arrested as CIA spies and 42 others were suspected of involvement with U.S. intelligence.

It is not known how the agents were discovered, but a likely cause was a breakdown in agent-handler communications. Ms. Witt could conceivably have been involved. The indictment states that she provided defense information to Iran but does not say when. The spy charges cover the period from 2012-15. And that communications compromise appears to link the roundup in Iran to a second colossal intelligence failure under the Obama administration: the loss of all recruited agents in China.

Last year, the New York Times and Yahoo News both reported that between 20 and 30 recruited Chinese agents were killed or imprisoned between 2009 and 2013. Yahoo reported the loss was caused by a breach in an internet messaging system used to communicate with agents in Iran that spread to other countries. The Times blamed the loss on a former CIA officer, Jerry Chung Shin Lee, who was arrested in January 2018 and is suspected of passing along their names to China.

There’s much more. Go here.

Minnesota: Somali-Born Muslim Arrested In Minneapolis – Charged With Kidnapping Journalist

An Ilhan Omar supporter and voter, no doubt. She will come to his aid, no doubt, just as she did for Islamic State fighters. 9 Minnesota Muslims charged with planning to join ISIS are scheduled to be sentenced. Ahead of those court dates, Rep. Omar asked Judge Davis for “compassion” and a “restorative approach to justice,” concluding that “this ruling can set a precedent and has the potential to be a landmark case in addressing” jihad.

SOMALI-BORN U.S. CITIZEN ARRESTED IN MINNEAPOLIS, CHARGED WITH TAKING JOURNALIST CAPTIVE

By Paul Walsh and Liz Sawyer, Star Tribune, February 22, 2019:

A U.S. citizen is jailed in central Minnesota and charged with participating in the kidnapping of a freelance journalist in Somalia, where he was held for nearly three years over a $20 million ransom.

Abdi Y. Hassan, 51, was charged in federal court in New York with six felony counts ranging from kidnapping to hostage-taking to illegal use of firearms.

Hassan was born in the Somali capital of Mogadishu. He was arrested last Friday in Minneapolis and will be returned to New York for further court proceedings.

A spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Southern District of New York said late Thursday afternoon that he did not know where in the United States Hassan currently resides or why he was in Minneapolis when arrested. Minnesota is home to the nation’s largest Somali community.

Hassan’s criminal record in Minnesota appears limited to a handful of misdemeanor traffic violations between 2005 and 2010. During those years, he had listed addresses in Minneapolis and Eden Prairie. Property records show he resided there until as recently as 2015.

Although the kidnapping victim was not identified in the federal charging documents — which describe him only as having dual citizenship in the United States and another unidentified country — the timeline of his captivity matches that of Michael Scott Moore, a German-American who was abducted by pirates in Somalia while he was there writing a book about piracy.

The charges do not specify why he was ultimately released in September 2014 or whether any ransom was paid on his behalf.

According to the criminal complaint, Hassan and other heavily armed captors abducted the journalist on Jan. 21, 2012, from a vehicle in the northern Somali city of Galkayo. One or more of the men hit their victim in the head and body with guns.

During the course of the journalist’s captivity, a dozen men armed with AK-47 rifles and belt-fed machine guns guarded him as he was moved to various locations. Two other foreign hostages, both non-Somali, were abducted from a fishing vessel off the Somali coast by the same men and then released in November 2012.

Hassan, who appeared to the journalist to be a leader among the other armed guards, directed his hostage to make a phone call and encourage family to sell a residence to pay for his release. This was one of several such calls made to family, and some of them were recorded by the FBI, which also secured videos of the hostage speaking on camera.

Threats by the hostage-takers if the $20 million was not received included withholding food and water from the journalist. The gunmen also demanded a letter signed by a high-ranking U.S. official pledging that the kidnappers would not be held responsible for the abduction.

At one point, the family member was told that the situation had “gotten very serious” and that another hostage had been tortured in front of the journalist.

A three-day deadline was set for payment of the ransom; otherwise, the journalist told the family member, the captors would sell the journalist to al-Shabab, a jihadist fundamentalist group that in 2012 pledged allegiance to the militant Islamist organization al-Qaida.

One video showed the journalist with a prayer shawl over his head and surrounded by masked and armed kidnappers. The hostage was heard saying that his captors wanted the United States and another country to pay the ransom.

Hassan arrived in the United States in September 2015. In an interview with a U.S. customs officer, he said he worked as a security minister for Galmudug state in Somalia, which includes Galkayo. He said a major part of his duties was arranging for the release of the journalist.

CAIR Mask Off: Advocates For Islamic State Bride Barred From US – Provides Legal Assistance

Although it poses as a “moderate,” “civil rights” organization, Hamas, aka CAIR, is anything but. Despite being named as unindicted co-conspirators in the largest terror funding trial in our nation’s history, they remain the number one go-to Islamic group for the leftist-elite media, and clearly for the social media monopolies as well. Several CAIR officials have been convicted of participating in violent jihad activities. So it’s no surprise that terror-tied CAIR would involve itself in the case of this ISIS bride. If they were what they claim to be, CAIR would run hard away from ISIS. That they would provide this traitor with free legal aid is telling.

“Islamist Group CAIR Now Advocating for ISIS Bride Who is Barred From the US, Providing Free Legal Assistance,” by Cassandra Fairbanks, Gateway Pundit, February 20, 2019 (thanks to Todd):

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced that the woman who left Alabama to join ISIS and now wants to return to the United States is not an American citizen and therefore cannot return to the nation.

Now, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), is supporting her and providing her with a pro bono attorney. 

“I have instructed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and he fully agrees, not to allow Hoda Muthana back into the Country!” President Trump tweeted on Wednesday.

On Wednesday evening, Jordan Schachtel from Conservative Review noted that CAIR is “not just simply advocating for ISIS devotee Hoda Muthana, they are also providing her a pro bono attorney. Hassan Shilby, an Islamist himself, is the director of CAIR’s Florida chapter and a national spokesperson for the org.”

The mainstream media has been attempting to paint a “heartbreaking” and sympathetic portrait of Muthana, despite the fact that she married four ISIS fighters in Syria. Muthana also infamously used social media to call for Americans to come to the self-proclaimed Caliphate and join the fight with ISIS.

“Soooo many Aussies and Brits here, but where are the Americans, wake up u cowards,” she posted on social media in January 2015.

Muthana also called for more American blood to be spilled. On March 2015, she tweeted: “Go on drive-bys and spill all of their blood, or rent a big truck and drive all over them.”

Rep. Ilhan Omar is listed as the featured speaker at CAIR’s 4th Annual Valley Banquet in California on March 23. Omar will be sharing the stage with Shibly, who is representing Muthana, and believes that Hezbollah and Hamas are not terrorist organizations. He also openly despises gay people….

Secretary Of State Pompeo: Islamic State Muslima Hoda Muthana Can’t Return To US

She left to fight with a savage, brutal enemy against the USA. There is no way she should be allowed to return. She gave up her hopes of citizenship when she turned traitor and joined up with the Islamic State in their war to destroy America in the cause of Islam.

If the Islamic State had prevailed, she’d be happily lopping off infidel heads.

POMPEO SAYS ISIS BRIDE CANNOT RETURN TO US BECAUSE SHE IS NOT A CITIZEN

by Caitlin Yilek | Washington Examiner February 20, 2019:

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said an Alabama woman who joined the Islamic State will not be allowed to return to the U.S. because she is not a citizen.

“Ms. Hoda Muthana is not a U.S. citizen and will not be admitted into the United States. She does not have any legal basis, no valid U.S. passport, no right to a passport, nor any visa to travel to the United States,” Pompeo said in a statement Wednesday.

Pompeo’s assertion contradicts her family and her Tampa-based lawyer, who insist she was born in Hackensack, New Jersey, in 1994.

Muthana told the New York Times in a story published Tuesday that she wanted to return home to the U.S. after surrendering to American troops last month.

According to the New York Times, Muthana had an American passport when she left the U.S. Pompeo’s statement did not make clear whether her citizenship had been revoked or if she was ever a U.S. citizen.

More than four years ago, she bought a plane ticket to Turkey with her college tuition money and was smuggled into Syria. The 24-year-old has been married to three ISIS fighters, two who were killed and a third she divorced.

After joining ISIS, she witnessed executions and urged others to join the group in social media posts that were critical of the U.S.

She told the Times she began having doubts about her decision to join the terrorist group during her second year in Syria, when she was married to her second husband and pregnant with her son.

“I ruined my life. I ruined my future,” she said.

“I realized how I didn’t appreciate or maybe even really understand how important the freedoms that we have in America are. I do now,” she wrote to a lawyer trying to help her return to the United States. “To say that I regret my past words, any pain that I caused my family and any concerns I would cause my country would be hard for me to really express properly.”

Pompeo’s statement also did not address a second woman in the New York Times story who holds dual citizenship in Canada and the U.S. and is seeking to return home after joining ISIS. Kimberly Gwen Polman lived in Canada before joining ISIS.

Meanwhile, the Trump administration has been pressuring Europe to take back foreign ISIS fighters captured in Syria as the U.S. prepares to withdraw its troops from the country. Europe has so far been reluctant to take back their citizens over potential legal challenges.

The U.K. refused to allow a London teenager back into the country after she said last week she wants to “come home” after joining ISIS four years ago.

Shamima Begum, 19, told the Times of London she did not regret running away to Syria, but fears for her newborn’s life. Begum gave birth over the weekend and has had two other children die in Syria.

The U.K. said it plans on revoking her British citizenship to prevent her from returning.

Facebook Defends Muslim Sharia Law Censorship – Champions Blasphemy Laws

Having been one of the early targets of social media censorship on Facebook, YouTube et al, I have for quite some time advocated for anti-trust action against these bullying behemoths. The story below once again shows why this is so urgently needed.

Read my article about this at The American Thinker. We are seeing an unprecedented erosion in our First Amendment rights, increasingly prohibiting the flow of ideas and free expression in the public square (social media). Run by left-wing self-possessed snowflakes, social media giants are indulging their worst autocratic impulses. And because they can, it is getting worse. “Absolute power corrupts absolutely.”

“Facebook defends Muslim sharia law censorship, champions blasphemy laws,” by Judith Bergman, The Gatestone InstituteWorld Israel News, February 19, 2019 (thanks to Mark):

Aside from the well-publicized incidents affecting a number of high public profile Facebook users, less-known social media users are censored and banned all the time.

Recent events illustrate how Facebook — which has previously championed blasphemy laws — continues its “sharia censorship” regarding content it apparently deems contrary to its “Community Standards“.

A report published in the Wall Street Journal on January 8 noted that Facebook — and Twitter — executives removed activist Laura Loomer from their platforms after Zahra Billoo, the executive director of the Council on American Islamic Relations’ (CAIR) San Francisco Bay Area chapter, complained to them. What Facebook fails to disclose is that CAIR was an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terror-financing case in US history. CAIR has also been designated a terror organization by the United Arab Emirates.

It should, however, be of little surprise that CAIR executives are able to wield such power over social media. According to Islamist Watch’s Sam Westrop:

“Since 2008, the Silicon Valley Community Foundation (SVCF) has granted $330,524 to two Islamist organizations, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and Islamic Relief…. SVCF is America’s largest community foundation, with assets of over $8 billion. Its corporate partners include some of the country’s biggest tech companies — its largest donation was $1.5 billion from Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.”

Silicon Valley, in other words, appears to be in the habit of financially supporting Islamists.

Billoo herself, according to Jihad Watch, “In tweets that remain publicly available… has expressed her support for an Islamic caliphate and Sharia law. She also claims, in multiple tweets, that ISIS is on the same moral plane as American and Israeli soldiers, adding that ‘our troops are engaged in terrorism.’”

Also in January, Facebook removed ads promoting a “Britain First” petition against the redevelopment and expansion of a mosque in the UK, on a Facebook page called Political Gamers UK. “Britain First” announced it would sue the social media giant for “political discrimination.”

The latest two instances of Facebook censorship were far from unique. In 2018, some of the publicized incidents of Facebook censorship included:

The news website Voice of Europe reported that it had been repeatedly censored and suspended for posting articles that contained content reflecting the critical stance of Central and Eastern European politicians against migration. An example is a book review of former Czech President Vaclav Klaus’s Europe All Inclusive, in which he said: “The migrant influx is comparable to the barbarian invasions of Europe.”

According to Voice of Europe, “We’ve now decided we will not post all our news on Facebook anymore, because we don’t want to lose our page.”

German Catholic historian and author Dr. Michael Hesemann had his comments on the historic role of Islam in Europe deleted because they supposedly did not correspond to Facebook “community standards.” Hesemann had written, “Islam always plays only one role in the 1700-year-old history of the Christian Occident: the role of the sword of Damocles which hung above us, the threat of barbarism against which one needed to unite and fight. In this sense, Islam is not part of German history…”

Frontpage Magazine editor Jamie Glazov was banned from Facebook for 30 days for posting screenshots of a Muslim threats to him. Facebook also banned him for 30 days on another occasion, for writing an article on the 17th anniversary of 9/11 on how to best prevent future 9/11s, “9 Steps to Successfully Counter Jihad.”

(Most recently, another social media giant, Twitter, warned Glazov that his new book, Jihadist Psychopath: How He Is Charming, Seducing, and Devouring Us , is in violation of Pakistan’s penal code, according to which Glazov is apparently “defiling the Holy Quran.” For the moment, Twitter has not taken any action, but it shows the extent to which social media is willing to take sharia laws into consideration).

Facebook closed down Australian imam Mohammad Tawhidi’s Facebook page “after he made a post mocking the terrorist group Hamas, and speaking in sarcastic terms about ‘peaceful Palestinian protests.’”

Facebook permanently banned the entire European branch of the anti-migration youth movement, Generation Identity, from Facebook. It deleted the movement’s pages for containing “extremist content.”

Facebook censored a post critical of Islam’s treatment of gays as “hate speech” and banned the editor of the website behind the post, Politicalite, for 30 days.

Facebook regularly blocks posts from historian and author Robert Spencer’s Jihad Watch website. It happened, for example, both in September and in December.

FOLLOWING EUROPEAN COMMISSION’S CODE

These represent just an extremely small selection of publicized incidents affecting a number of high public profile Facebook users; less-known social media users are censored and banned all the time. In Germany, for instance, lawyer, journalist and anti-censorship activist Joachim Nikolaus Steinhöfel runs a website that documents Facebook censorship in Germany alone. There appears to be an enormous amount to document — as of June 2017, Facebook removed an average of 288,000 posts a month globally, according to its own statistics.

This should not come as a surprise – Facebook has, for example, signed the European Commission’s Code of Conduct on countering illegal online hate speech online, which commits the social media giant to review and remove, within 24 hours, “illegal hate speech.” Facebook’s Vice President of Public Policy Richard Allan wrote in 2017:

“Our current definition of hate speech is anything that directly attacks people based on what are known as their ‘protected characteristics’ — race, ethnicity, national origin, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, sex, gender, gender identity, or serious disability or disease.

“There is no universally accepted answer for when something crosses the line…

“Sometimes, it’s obvious that something is hate speech and should be removed – because it includes the direct incitement of violence against protected characteristics, or degrades or dehumanizes people. If we identify credible threats of imminent violence against anyone, including threats based on a protected characteristic, we also escalate that to local law enforcement.”

Facebook, however, appears to be “creatively” selective in how it chooses to follow its own rules. It removes, for example, “content that glorifies violence or celebrates the suffering or humiliation of others.” In Sweden, however, Ahmad Qadan posted status updates to his public Facebook profile, asking for donations to ISIS. The posts stayed online for two years. Facebook deleted the posts only after the Swedish Security Service (Säpo) approached it.

In November 2017, Ahmad was sentenced to six months in prison after having been found guilty of using Facebook to collect money to fund weapons purchases for the ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra terror groups and for posting messages calling for “serious acts of violence primarily or disproportionately aimed at civilians with the intention of creating terror amongst the public.”

‘ON OCCASION WE MAKE MISTAKES’

Facebook responded: “On occasion we make mistakes. When that happens, we correct them as soon as we are made aware”.

In September, Canadian media exposed that a Toronto terrorist leader, Zakaria Amara, currently serving a life sentence for plotting Al Qaeda-inspired truck bombings in downtown Toronto, nevertheless had a Facebook page on which he posted prison photos and notes about what made him a terrorist. Only after Canadian media outlets reached Facebook to ask about the account did Facebook delete Amara’s account “for violating our community standards.”

In France, a prisoner identified as Amir was accused in November of publishing ISIS propaganda from his prison cell using a smuggled phone. Facebook, apparently, took no notice.

Most recently, in Germany, a parliamentarian from the anti-immigration Alternative for Germany party (AfD), Frank Magnitz, was severely wounded in a violent attack, which his party called “an assassination attempt.” A German “Antifa” group, Antifa Kampfsausbildung, posted “thank you” in response to the assault. Facebook found the group’s support of violence against a member of parliament perfectly in accord with its “standards”.

Perhaps Facebook’s selectivity is due to the loyalties it has already openly displayed. In July 2017, Joel Kaplan, Facebook’s vice president of Public Policy, reportedly promised Pakistan’s Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan that Facebook would “remove fake accounts and explicit, hateful and provocative material that incites violence and terrorism.”

“The spokesperson said that while talking to the Facebook vice president, Nisar said that the entire Muslim Ummah was greatly disturbed and has serious concerns over the misuse of social media platforms to propagate blasphemous content… Nisar said that Pakistan appreciates the understanding shown by the Facebook administration and the cooperation being extended on these issues.”

INTENT ON CENSORSHIP NOW MORE THAN EVER

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg now appears to be more intent on censorship than ever….

It is curious that Zuckerberg would present his idea of disincentivizing “borderline content” as something new when, in fact, it has been a staple on Facebook for at least several years. In November 2017, for example, “traffic to Jihad Watch from Facebook dropped suddenly by 90% and has never recovered,” according to the website’s creator, Robert Spencer.

Facebook is evidently still championing blasphemy laws.

Welcome to Sadiq Khan’s London, Maajid

This phony, hateful “moderate” Maajid Nawaz has for years been pulling the wool over the eyes of everyone, especially people on the side of freedom and human rights — people who should know better. He always gets the last laugh, exploiting the kuffar’s desperation for a true Muslim reformer. A true Muslim reformer is ….an apostate. Nawaz is a carny barker. Don’t buy the snake oil he’s selling. This is unlikely to have been a real “hate crime.” Sadiq Khan, London’s Muslim mayor, has overseen a surge in violent crime on London’s underground: it has risen by 43 percent in just three years, while the highest increase were weapons offenses at 125 percent.

And it isn’t just the underground: crime has surged all over London. Now Nawaz has fallen victim. Irony of ironies.

“Welcome to Sadiq Khan’s London, Maajid,” by Joshua Winston, Jihad Watch, February 18, 2019:

Maajid Nawaz has recently been assaulted outside of the Soho Theatre on Dean Street in Central London. Dean Street in Soho is littered with homeless people and Muslim African drug dealers. I myself have currently got a shattered nose, eye socket, and skull, and am awaiting multiple operations over the coming year, because I was attacked by these Muslims in the exact same location where Maajid was attacked. But I, unlike Maajid, am not playing the race or religious card.

Of course, violence is never okay, but Maajid is whining about a “white man” attacking him and leaving him with a minor cut to his forehead. He says that his attacker called him a “f**king Paki.” My attackers, as confirmed by police, were African/Somali Muslim drug dealers, and my attack was as a direct result of police failings: I had been chased by the exact same Muslims the night before, and they attacked me with knives, but the cops who were in attendance decided they needed a cigarette more than they needed to arrest my assailants. But for whatever reason, when a white man randomly lashes out at someone, it’s more reprehensible, and so the attack on Maajid is sure to bring him an avalanche of sympathy.

Charing Cross police hierarchy have told me in person that they have lost control of Soho in Central London, and that African/Somali gangs now rule the area. Further, there are no police in Soho. It is a hotbed of illegal activity. In 2016, almost 200 Westminster police were fired or imprisoned because the dealers were selling drugs on their behalf, or else the officers were receiving sexual favours and allowing prostitutes to remain on the streets. Also, police in London have to bid on what areas they will patrol, because of a lack of funding and officers. We have no specific number of officers who are allocated to every borough on a regular basis.

I have, moments ago, spoken to the security guards, the manager, and the homeless people who are all in the vicinity of the Soho Theatre. One homeless lady told me she witnessed an altercation that involved a white man in an army jacket punching someone. I asked the security guard and the manager of the Soho Theatre if they could confirm that the attack was racially motivated or just random, and they told me they had no idea. They both confirmed that random attacks on that particular street and in that area are very common. But it seems Maajid is determined to turn it into a racially motivated hate crime. The manager confirmed that CCTV does not pick up voice recordings, because it is illegal to do so, so it is unlikely that Maajid’s claim about what his attacker said will be confirmed. When I asked him why his cameras failed to pick up my assault by Muslim drug dealers in the exact same location as Maajid’s attack, he suggested that someone probably was standing in the way of me being assaulted, in spite of the fact that police attended his venue and scoured his CCTV for my assailants.

When Sadiq Khan was elected mayor of London, Maajid kept his mouth shut. After Khan was elected, Maajid came out to tell us all that Islamists voted Khan in. If Maajid wanted a more competent mayor, he should have spoken up before the elections. Westminster currently has no CCTV, but miraculously the Soho Theatre has captured Maajid’s attacker, but not mine, even although the attacks were committed within meters of each other. CCTV in pubs and diners are usually always focused on the doorways and not the streets, so Maajid must have been plastered to the wall of the exterior for it to have been captured. The manager showed me the area of the street that his CCTV covers, and it is precisely on the doorway and the tables outside, nothing further….

Amazon Rips Into Ocasio-Cortez: ‘We Don’t Want To Work In This Environment In The Long Term’

The Amazon plant would have brought much-needed jobs to New York City. It would have employed thousands of people who now are out of luck because of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s socialism and virtue-signaling. She and other socialists don’t want people to work, they want to, as President Trump has said, turn this country into Venezuela, where people are searching through garbage cans for something to eat.

https://twitter.com/PamelaGeller/status/1096145364065939456

“Amazon blasts Ocasio-Cortez, says ‘we don’t want to work in this environment in the long term,’” by Chris Ciaccia, Fox News, February 15, 2019:

The fallout from Amazon’s decision to walk away from its planned headquarters in New York is ratcheting up after a company spokesman publicly blasted Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other lawmakers, saying they had made it a hostile environment to do business.

“If you talk to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, it’s ‘Never Amazon,’” Jodi Seth, the head of policy communications for Amazon, told NBC News in an interview on Thursday. “If you talk to [New York City Councilman Jimmy] Van Bramer, it’s unions.”

Seth added that “it wasn’t any one incident” that drove the Seattle-based tech giant to its decision, adding that the virulent political discourse that occurred over the past three months was what led to the decision. “It was that the environment over the course of the past three months had not got any better. There were some local and state elected officials who refused to meet with Amazon and criticized us day in and day out about the plan,” she said in the interview.

Seth, who has been at Amazon since October 2017 according to her LinkedIn profile, said the company did not know whether the “deal would be approved until a year from now,” but said it was “pretty confident” in the approval, mentioning that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo “was working hard to make it happen, but looking at the opposition and the timeline we decided we don’t want to work in this environment in the long term.”

In a fiery statement on Thursday, Cuomo blamed the shocking decision on socialist democratic darling Ocasio-Cortez and others like her.

“[A] small group [of] politicians put their own narrow political interests above their community – which poll after poll showed overwhelmingly supported bringing Amazon to Long Island City – the state’s economic future and the best interests of the people of this state,” Cuomo said publicly. “The New York State Senate has done tremendous damage. They should be held accountable for this lost economic opportunity.”

Upon hearing the news, Ocasio-Cortez, who has an undergraduate degree in international relations and economics, cheered Amazon’s decision.

Ocasio-Cortez’s reaction led to significant blowback on social media from prominent businessmen and economists across the political spectrum. The lost jobs would have paid on average $150,000 per year.

Amazon, which currently employs 8,000 people in the state, according to NBC, said it would disperse the 25,000 jobs throughout its 17 corporate offices and tech hubs in the U.S. and Canada, including some in New York. However, Seth added that Amazon does not intend to re-open talks with New York lawmakers and does not intend to find another headquarters for the jobs.

“That’s pretty firm,” Seth told the news outlet.

Amazon said it would proceed as planned with the second part of its HQ2, which will be built in Northern Virginia, as well as its operations center that it said it would open in Nashville.

In addition to the 25,000 jobs, Amazon would’ve brought $2.5 billion in investment and eventually 8 million square feet of office space to Long Island City as part of the deal announced last November….

Address Records Show Rep. Ilhan Omar Still Lived With Her First Husband Throughout Marriage To Her Apparent Brother

This article from October is worth revisiting now, because it shows just how corrupt Jew-hating Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar and the Democrat Party really are. Despite abundant evidence, as you can see here, that she committed student loan and immigration fraud, Omar was still elected to Congress.

The enemedia, true to form, never called out the Democrats or Omar for this.

They knew she was a criminal and they didn’t care, because she helped them advance their identity politics agenda and virtue-signal with a hijabbed Muslim in Congress.

If you’re a leftist who is useful to the political elites, you can get away with anything.

“Address Records Show Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) Still Lived With Her First Husband Throughout Marriage To Her Apparent Brother,” by David Steinberg, PJ Media, October 30, 2018 (thanks to Mark):

In recent days, Minnesota state Representative Ilhan Omar (D-60B) has campaigned with Minnesota Attorney General candidate Keith Ellison (D-MN). Omar is the Democratic nominee for the federal House seat, MN CD-5, that Ellison is vacating. She is the assumed favorite to win the seat.

Win or lose, however, a Department of Justice investigation into her past appears inevitable. A remarkable — and growing — amount of evidence implicates her in multiple federal and state felonies.

The allegations stem from Omar’s 2009 marriage to British citizen Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, her apparent brother. Below, exclusive new evidence backs the claim that this marriage was fraudulent. Also, this new evidence suggests that student loan fraud and immigration fraud were Omar’s motivations for marrying Mr. Elmi.

——————————-

In 2016, shortly after Rep. Omar defeated 44-year incumbent Phyllis Kahn in the Democratic primary for MN House District 60B, someone anonymously posted the initial allegations on the SomaliSpot.com message board. The poster claimed Omar had been granted a Minnesota marriage license in 2009, and subsequently married her brother Ahmed Elmi while she was still Islamically married to Ahmed Hirsi — with whom she had two children at the time.

Long-time Minnesota reporter/attorney Scott Johnson investigated the allegations, and surprisingly discovered that they were supported by government records.

Minnesota reporter Preya Samsundar investigated further, uncovering much more supporting evidence.

Pressured by local and national media, Omar soon released a statement. It failed to address much of the evidence. Her statement included this passage:

In 2002, when I was 19 years old, Ahmed Hirsi … and I, applied for a marriage license, but we never finalized the application and thus were never legally married. In 2008, we decided to end our relationship in our faith tradition after reaching an impasse in our life together.

I entered into a relationship with a British citizen, Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, and married him legally in 2009. Our relationship ended in 2011 and we divorced in our faith tradition. …

Since 2011, I am happy to say that I have reconciled with Ahmed Hirsi, we have married in our faith tradition and are raising our family together. (Emphasis added)

—————————-

I have extensively searched publicly available address records with the assistance of a legal researcher. We have found that Rep. Omar’s first claim — that she and Ahmed Hirsi underwent an Islamic divorce “to end [their] relationship” in 2008 — can not be reconciled with their official address records. Further, her claim can not be reconciled with her own words from an interview she gave in 2013.

 From 2002 until 2009, Ilhan Omar lived in a series of apartments in Minneapolis with Ahmed Hirsi.

 In 2009, Ilhan Omar married British citizen Ahmed Nur Said Elmi.

 In August 2009, records show that both Ilhan Omar and Ahmed Nur Said Elmi left Minnesota, moving to 2608 Pacific Dr. South, Apt. 4, Fargo, North Dakota 58103. (The record we found for Elmi did not include the apartment number.)

 However, records show that Ahmed Hirsi moved there, too.

In August 2009, Ahmed Hirsi is recorded at 2608 Pacific Dr. South, Apt. 4, Fargo, North Dakota 58103.

Ilhan, her Islamically divorced first husband, and her second husband are all recorded to live at the same apartment at the same time.

 In February 2010, both Ilhan Omar and Ahmed Hirsi are recorded as having moved to 2438 18th St. South, Fargo, North Dakota 58103.

 Records show that Ahmed Elmi, her legal husband, appears at this new address in November 2010, nine months later.

To summarize:

 Address records show that Ilhan Omar lived at the same address with the man she claimed to have divorced and the man she was legally married to — concurrently. And that she did this twice.

 Ilhan Omar stated that her relationship with Ahmed Elmi only lasted from 2009 until 2011. But address records show she spent more of that time living with Ahmed Hirsi.

Indeed, she may have lived with Hirsi continuously during her entire marriage to Ahmed Elmi.

Years before this scandal was publicized on the Somali message board, Ilhan herself confirmed that Ahmed Hirsi was with her in North Dakota.

Perhaps more importantly, Ilhan also explained what they were doing in Fargo.

The following passage appeared in a local Minneapolis news outlet in 2013 within an article titled “Refugee Parent Finds Sense of Home in Minneapolis Neighborhood School”:

After having started their daughter, Isra, in kindergarten in Minneapolis, Omar and her husband, Ahmed Hirsi, moved to North Dakota so that Omar could finish her bachelor’s degree in political science….

In Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar’s Minnesota District, Police Deal With Gangs, Tight-Lipped Somali Muslim Community

But Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar has no time for problems in her district; she’s too busy inciting to incite to genocide. “While Omar has spoken out frequently and forcefully on a range of issues – some that seem little connected to her district – most members of the Somali community she represents remain far more insular.”

Insular like this: “more than half of all homicides statewide in Minnesota go unsolved. And that’s in part because Somali-Americans in Minneapolis aren’t talking enough to police, according to officers.”

Of course, Minneapolis police will never admit it, but the Somalis there are “tight-lipped” because the police are kuffar.

And Muslim cops won’t solve that problem; they only make it worse — look at Mohamed Noor.

“Back in Omar’s district, police deal with gangs, relations with tight-lipped Somali community,” by Hollie McKay, Fox News, February 14, 2019 (thanks to Mark):

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – In the dead of the cold, late night on Tuesday, a young Somali man was shot in the hip. Someone took him to the local trauma center, left him there, and drove off.

The man told police at his bedside that he didn’t know who shot him, who took him to the hospital, or why he was targeted. “I’m intoxicated,” he told cops, while doctors tended his wound, before insisting he didn’t know anything else about what happened.

For the attending police officers, it was a frustrating, albeit familiar, response from a member of the Somali community, whose support in November sent one of their own, Rep. Ilhan Omar, to Congress. While Omar has spoken out frequently and forcefully on a range of issues – some that seem little connected to her district – most members of the Somali community she represents remain far more insular.

The national epidemic of shootings involving young African-American men in America’s cities certainly isn’t unique to Minneapolis. But some officers here believe issues of cultural assimilation involving the Somali immigrant community, and a struggle on both sides to better communicate law enforcement’s mandate to protect and serve, makes it a particularly imposing challenge. One that politicians like Omar, they say, could do much more to effectively address.

“When they come here, they come with their own experiences of not trusting the police, and from a place where the police are known to be corrupt. And the challenge for us lies in trying to get them to cooperate,” said one law enforcement officer. “They’ll often call 911 when they need help. But when we come, they often won’t then tell us who is causing the problem so we can take action or stop the crime from happening again.”

“Our goal is to have a good relationship with the community, we try to engage but it’s proving to be a tough egg to crack,” another officer underscored.

According to data compiled last year by the Washington Post, more than half of all homicides statewide in Minnesota go unsolved. And that’s in part because Somali-Americans in Minneapolis aren’t talking enough to police, according to officers.

The Somali community grew here rapidly here during the 1990s, when large numbers of Somalis fled a devastating civil war. The community has since grown with the addition of U.S.-born children of those refugees – as has the debate over the Somalis’ desire and ability to culturally assimilate.

Minnesota is now home to one the largest Somali communities in the global diaspora, with an estimated 100,000 living in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area. The Cedar-Riverside neighborhood is the center of the Somali community – and is fondly nicknamed “Little Mogadishu” – for its array of Somali-centered organizations, businesses, and mosques.

Last year, it was announced that massive security upgrades totaling some $825,000 were coming to the major government-funded apartment complex in Cedar-Riverside, to “address resident safety concerns.” Part of the plan was to place a six-foot perimeter fence at the Cedar High Apartments, a complex owned and managed by Minneapolis Public Housing Authority, and for many, the central meeting point for the community.

While supported by some, others expressed their concerns the fence would only further isolate the Somali population, and hinder their ability to work with them and make the area safer.

Some investigators lament the difficulties in rooting out gang violence that remains a problem in not just the Somali community, but neighboring areas. The proper dismantling of the gangs, police stress, is a two-way street. Gang activity now is no longer centered on larger outfits like MS-13, or the Crips. Much more common here are smaller gangs with names like “Somali Mafia,” “Somali Outlaws,” “Young n’ Thuggin (YNT)” and even the “Taliban.”

“It’s hard for any community to assimilate and to immediately transform from the life they knew. But the distrust is only getting worse,” said an area law enforcement official. “The gang violence is only getting worse. Not only do crimes go unsolved, but many don’t get reported at all.”

But Jeanine Brudenell, the former Minneapolis Police Department’s Somali liaison officer, who retired in 2017, believes gang violence has waned somewhat. She acknowledged that while the “huge fear of police and government” has made efforts to protect the community, the right steps are being put in place in terms of community relations.

In recent years, the Minneapolis Police Department (MPD) has sought to do more community outreach, and bring into the fold more Somali officers. The department currently has eight ethnic Somalis serving as officers.

“The City of Minneapolis has the largest Somali population, per capita, in the United States. The Minneapolis Police Department strongly believes that a police department that reflects the community it serves is an important first step in building trust,” John Elder, Minneapolis Police Department Public Information Officer told Fox News. “When Somali residents see officers that look like them, on patrol and detectives in investigation units, they are more likely have the confidence the MPD will understand their culture and background.”…

Senate Intelligence Committee: No Evidence Of Russian Collusion

How many hundreds of millions of our taxpayer dollars went to fund this Kafkaesque persecution all because the treasonous left refused to accept the results of free and fair elections?

America is under siege from within.

SENATE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE: NO EVIDENCE OF RUSSIAN COLLUSION

Democrats hungry for a deus ex machina to liberate them from President Trump are salivating a bit more in light of a recent report that the Senate Intelligence Committee has found zero evidence that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia during the 2016 election.

By Daily Wire, February 12, 2019:

According to NBC News, the Senate Intelligence Committee will soon be concluding its investigation into the 2016 election and have so far “uncovered no direct evidence of a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia, according to both Democrats and Republicans on the committee.” The investigation has been ongoing for two years, consisting of about 200 interviews.

“If we write a report based upon the facts that we have, then we don’t have anything that would suggest there was collusion by the Trump campaign and Russia,” said Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) during an interview with CBS News last week.

Burr added that the situation could change based on new facts, but conceded that the investigation is fairly close to being over.

“We know we’re getting to the bottom of the barrel because there are not new questions that we’re searching for answers to,” Burr said. “What I’m telling you is that I’m going to present, as best we can, the facts to you and to the American people. And you’ll have to draw your own conclusion as to whether you think that, by whatever definition, that’s collusion.”

NBC reports, however, that Democrats on the committee still believe that there exists some evidence that Trump associates and members of his family were “willing to accept help from a foreign adversary” during the 2016 election.

“We were never going to find a contract signed in blood saying, ‘Hey Vlad, we’re going to collude,’” one anonymous Democratic aide told NBC News.

“Donald Trump Jr. made clear in his messages that he was willing to accept help from the Russians,” one anonymous Democratic Senate investigator told NBC News. “Trump publicly urged the Russians to find Clinton’s missing emails.”

All of those facts, however, have been a matter of public record for over a year and do not appear to have torpedoed Trump. Currently, his approval rating sits at a comfortable 52%. Newsweek, however, tried to spin this salient fact by noting that his approval rating is lower than is the rating for Mueller’s investigation:

President Donald Trump has a lower approval rating than special counsel Robert Mueller’s on the Russia probe, according to a new poll — though Americans felt investigators still have a lot left to prove.

A Washington Post/Schar School poll of 841 Americans found that just 33 percent of Americans said they were inclined to believe Trump’s version of the facts, compared to 56 percent who believe Mueller.

Only 35 percent of Americans approved of Trump’s response to the investigation, while 52 percent disapproved. The president has dismissed the Mueller investigation as a politically motivated “witch hunt.”

Unfortunately, Mueller fans may be disappointed in the end, with reports now indicating his investigation has found no direct evidence of collusion between Trump and Russia.

“Democrats and other Trump opponents have long believed that special counsel Robert Mueller and Congressional investigators would unearth new and more explosive evidence of Trump campaign coordination with Russians,” reports NBC News. “Mueller may yet do so, although Justice Department and Congressional sources say they believe that he, too, is close to wrapping up his investigation.”

Linda Sarsour Raises Money for Muslim Child Killer Who Raped 15-Year-Old

Editor’s Note: At least Alabama finally brought justice!  It took years to get to it at tax payer expense, but justice was finally served!  Good!  It should be happening in the community though, with people watching the outcome and participating so that they learn to fear God and violating His law against rape and murder and other capital crimes.  I don’t relish in such things, but they are just.  I’d just as soon people repent and do what is right, but in our world, that isn’t going to happen just yet.  Until then, this needs to take place so that justice may guard our liberties.

Not only has she raised money for this Muslim killer; this evil fraudster has also claimed to raise money for Jews in the past — but remember, she didn’t give them the money she raised.  Linda Sarsour staged a narcissistic publicity stunt when hundreds of Jewish gravestones were desecrated and destroyed at various cemeteries (most likely by her coreligionists); Sarsour glommed onto the news story and made it her own. She jumped on a campaign to raise money to repair the vandalism (and her reputation due to her long history of antisemitism).

Sarsour hijacked the horror for her own personal aggrandizement, and the elite media ate it up.

The campaign — named “Muslims Unite to Repair Jewish Cemetery” — had raised $162,468 through the Muslim crowdfunding site LaunchGood, far beyond its set goal of $20,000. But only 30% of the proceeds were disbursed, while designated cemeteries pleaded for promised funds. Their calls were met with deafening silence.

And even before that, she defrauded people before with hoaxes, but exploiting dead Jews, that was a new low, even for that lowlife. Now she has gone even lower, raising money for this monster.

“Linda Sarsour Raises Money for Muslim Child Killer Who Raped 15-Year-Old,” by Daniel Greenfield, FrontPage, February 10, 2019 (thanks to Wendy):

By American standards, Domineque Hakim Marcelle Ray was a monster. But by the standards of Mohammed, who raped and killed countless people, Ray was a moderate. So why wouldn’t Linda Sarsour fundraise for this monster?

“Domineque Hakim Marcel Ray was executed by the State of Alabama & denied his request to have his imam present. His final request was to AT LEAST have a proper Muslim burial. We can help make that happen,” Sarsour tweeted.

Here’s what Ray did.

His execution comes 20 years after being put on death row, and while he was also serving time for the killings of two teenage boys who were slain the year before Tiffany Harville was fatally stabbed. For the boys’ killings, he was sentenced to life in prison.

One of those boys was only 13 years old.

Tiffany was only 15. He raped her and stabbed her in the head.

Ray’s last words were in Arabic. He made a hand signal consisting of a closed fist with his index finger pointed and looked toward the viewing room where two of his attorneys and spiritual adviser were sitting, along with members of the media.

One of Ray’s attorneys from the Federal Defenders of the Middle District of Alabama, Spencer Hahn, said after the execution, “Domineque was a devout Muslim and a human being. He was a son, a father, a brother. He wanted equal treatment in his last moments. I am beyond appalled at the willingness of Steve Marshall and the State of Alabama to treat a human being differently because he was part of a religious minority. We are better than this.”

We are better than this. That’s why Ray was put down like a mad dog. Lefties however are worse than this, that’s why they efend [sic] a monster.

Band Of Mothers Calls On Trump For Justice For Chief Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher – #FreeEddie

Chief Gallagher has been charged with mistreating an ISIS terrorist during combat operations!

On Patriot’s Day, Sept 11th 2018, NCIS snatched Chief Gallagher in the midst of TBI treatment, shackled him, kept him shackled in solitary confinement for 72 hrs.
He has been in pre-trial confinement for over 4 months and counting.
Chief Gallagher has been Indefinitely Detained, repeatedly denied access to medical care, and has limited access to his attorneys. 

If this can happen to Chief Gallagher, it can happen to anyone. Even by the Navy SEALs standard, Chief Gallagher ’s biography is extraordinary (read it here).

In the case of Eddie Gallagher, charged with the murder of an ISIS detainee, there is little to no physical evidence of guilt. There is no autopsy or body to show that a murder even occurred. Instead, the case is built solely on the claims of a few junior SEALs, who did not report the alleged incident for months, and only started making claims after Chief Gallagher reported them for cowardice in combat and his genuine concerns over their ability to perform the mission.

In the civilian justice system, prosecutors are required to present evidence to a grand jury, who votes on whether there is probable cause to bring an indictment. In the military, rather than a grand jury, a single officer presides over an Article 32 hearing, where evidence is presented and that officer, usually an attorney, decides whether there is probable cause to proceed with charges. On paper, this may seem fairer than a grand jury because the defense can be present and even cross-examine the witnesses. But the reality is a bit different because the hearing officer prepares an advisory opinion and the convening authority can either accept or reject their recommendation. To put that into context, imagine a civilian prosecutor presents evidence to the grand jury, who finds that there is no probable cause to charge the defendant, but the prosecutor’s boss can ignore that decision and proceed with charges anyway.

IN CHIEF GALLAGHER’S CASE, THIS IS EXACTLY THE SITUATION THAT OCCURRED. THE OFFICER WHO HEARD ALL OF THE EVIDENCE AT HIS ARTICLE 32 HEARING FOUND THAT SOME, BUT NOT ALL, CHARGES WERE SUPPORTED BY THE BARE MINIMUM EVIDENCE TO CONSTITUTE PROBABLE CAUSE. SPECIFICALLY, THE HEARING OFFICER FOUND THAT THE EVIDENCE WAS INSUFFICIENT ON TWO COUNTS OF ATTEMPTED MURDER, WHERE CHIEF GALLAGHER ALLEGEDLY SHOT AT, BUT DID NOT HIT, TWO NON-COMBATANTS ON THE STREETS OF MOSUL. EVEN THOUGH THE HEARING OFFICER, WHO IS AN ATTORNEY, FOUND NO PROBABLE CAUSE, THE CONVENING AUTHORITY, WHO IS NOT AN ATTORNEY, REJECTED THIS CONCLUSION AND DIRECTED THAT CHIEF GALLAGHER FACE THESE TWO COUNTS OF ATTEMPTED MURDER AT TRIAL.

PLEASE ASK PRESIDENT TRUMP TO FREE CHIEF GALLAGHER.

Contact your Congressperson here. If they are Democrat, I am sorry for you. Best way to contact? Phone calls.

Donate to the Navy Seals Fund here. 100% of the donations raised by this campaign will be used to defend Chief Gallagher and provide support for his family as they fight for Justice.

My great friend, Band of Mothers leader Bev Perlson, sent this letter to President Donald Trump. Won’t you contact the White House?

Re:  Navy Chief Edward R. Gallagher

Dear Mr. President:

I wrote to you on December 11, 2018 (encl) asking for your help for Navy Seal Chief Edward R. Gallagher, currently “still” held in the Navy brig in California. Seven weeks have passed, and I have not received a response.  President Trump, dare I infringe on the great progress you are making for our country, but I must. This matter is urgent.  

Chief Gallagher has been locked up in the brig in California now for almost 6 months. He was taken out of TBI treatment, shackled and arrested on Patriot’s Day, September 11, 2018. Chief Gallagher is a Navy Seal, who served 19 years of decorated service, now charged with pre-meditated murder. 

For the last 19 years, Chief Gallagher has risked his life to keep us all safe.  Yet now he finds himself locked up in the brig and treated like a man already tried and found guilty.  Due to his imprisonment, his ability to formulate any kind of decent defense is nil, and he is going to trial soon.  

His wife and children are in Florida, the Chief is being held prisoner in California.  Over the last 6 months, this Navy Seal has seen his wife three times, and his kids, once, on Thanksgiving Day.  These are the same kids the government traumatized by pulling them out of their beds in their underwear, out in front of the neighbors, with their guns drawn!   

Chief Gallagher’s kids are brave Patriots. They have said goodbye to their Dad many times since they were born, so that he could go somewhere dangerous to protect all of us.  They miss him. I bet they are wondering how we could treat their Dad like this.  Me Too.   

I listened to your State of the Union speech Tuesday evening. It was wonderful. One part of your speech overwhelmed me. You told the story of Judah, who was there in your audience.  Judah is a Holocaust survivor who remembers when the American Soldiers came and saved them all: 

“Suddenly the train screeched to a very strong halt. A soldier appeared. Judah’s family braced for the worst. Then, his father cried out with joy: “It’s the Americans. It’s the Americans.” 

As I heard those beautiful words, “It’s the Americans”, I imagined how many times over 19 years Chief Gallagher and his Brothers heard those same beautiful words of hope and freedom.

President Trump, the Chief needs to hear “It’s the Americans” as he is led out of the brig.  He deserves to go home, to be with his family and be afforded all the rights to defend himself that he fought so hard to provide all of us. 

Mr. President, please help Chief Gallagher.   

With A Mother’s Heart & Great Respect,

California High School Hangs Nazi Flag in Classroom

Editor’s Note:  I’ll be they wouldn’t hang a Confederate flag in a California school, or burn a cross, oh wait they might.  Studying history is one thing.  Everyone knows this is not about this, and I’m not so thin-skinned that I’m offended by a flag, but I’m always concerned over the indoctrination of public schools, which is why I always recommend parents take their kids out of these places and teach them at home and they can start for free here.

When the left is in control of your state……

Student, mother voice concern after Frontier High teacher hangs Nazi flag in classroom

by Emma Goss, Eyewitness News, Bakersfield Now, February 1st 2019

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) – A teacher at Frontier High School hung a Nazi flag in his world history classroom this week, prompting one concerned mother to reach out to Eyewitness News.

Roxanne Hartline tweeted a photo Thursday that her daughter, 15-year-old Vaniece Thomas, took in her classroom.

“So this evening, daughter says that the school knows about this & bcuz they’re studying the Holocaust “it’s okay”!! Um excuse me, they wouldn’t put up a poster of two people engaging in sex in health class! Why?!Bcuz it’s OFFENSIVE!” reads Hartline’s tweet.

Thomas told Eyewitness News on Friday that the teacher, David Gaeta, hangs the flag in his classroom every year while they study World War II and the Holocaust. After students shared that they were shocked by the Nazi symbolism in their classroom, Gaeta explained his reasoning for having it up, noting that it’s a flag given to him from a relative who served in WWII and would be taken down after the lesson was concluded, according to Thomas.

A Kern High School District spokeswoman said the lesson on WWII is two weeks, and students confirmed the flag typically stays up for the duration of the lesson.

“The only reason I wasn’t more mad about it was because it was Mr. Gaeta,” Thomas said, noting that he’s a well-liked teacher and she did not want him to suffer any consequences.

The photo tweeted by Hartline shows a handwritten message on the classroom ceiling: “We heart Gaeta.”

A Kern High School District spokeswoman said the flag, a decades-old artifact, was “strictly for the lesson,” and the district doesn’t plan any action against the teacher.

Lindsay Pearson, a Jewish student who graduated from Frontier in 2016, said students would often use anti-Semitic slurs and symbols against her.

“I would get swastikas on my desk all the time. I’d get called names,” Pearson said. “So seeing that in a classroom, hung by a teacher, was also just another, like, blow, you know?”

Pearson was not a student of Gaeda’s but would visit his classroom daily in her senior year, when she’d run passes from the front office to various classrooms.

“If he had just shown it on like a Powerpoint or something like that like my teacher did, um it wouldn’t be as big of an issue,” Pearson said. “But hanging it like it’s an American flag almost, is what I take issue with. It should not be so prominently displayed, and for several weeks at a time.”

Christopher Jacobson, a special education teacher at Fairfax Junior High, weighed in.

“It is an interesting educational tool to have a piece of history like that,” Jacobson said, but noted, “it should just be a take out and put away piece.”

“I think when you hang something, you kind of give a certain respect to it. And there should be no respect for the item and its symbology on its own,” Jacobson said.

“It was part of history and part of a lesson, but it’s not something that’s hanging permanently in his classroom,” Public Information Officer Erin Briscoe-Clarke told Eyewitness News over the phone.

“This is the first time I’ve ever seen anyone be like, ‘this is not appropriate,’ and it’s surprising to me that it took this long honestly,” Pearson said.

Canada: Former ISIS Sex Slaves Threatened With Phone Calls & Texts From Their Devout Muslim Rapists

Muslims, according to their scripture (the scripture leftwing elites demand that we respect) are entitled to take sex slaves, and that may be why these men are tormenting these women, who have already suffered so much: they think they’re still entitled to use them.

Sex slavery is sanctioned under Islam.

At the risk of repeating myself for the umpteenth time, sex slavery and rape of the infidel is sanctioned and rewarded under Islam.

Muslim clerics all over the world confirm the right to have sex slaves.

It is in the Qur’an — the word of Allah. Politicians and courts of law keep turning a blind eye, law enforcement keeps ignoring it, so this pox on our communities will continue to get worse.

No doubt, there are many who believe that such statements are false and “islamophobic.”

But they’re 100% true.

“Former ISIS sex slaves sheltered in Canada threatened with phone calls, texts,” by Avery Haines, CTV, February 4, 2019:

WARNING: This story contains graphic content that may be disturbing to some readers.

Former ISIS sex slaves, who were given sanctuary in Canada, are again living in fear after being bombarded by voicemails and texts threatening rape and murder.

Five women and one 14-year-old girl have filed reports with York Regional Police. The victims are all Yazidis who survived an ISIS-led genocide in Iraq in 2014.

They have handed over to police recordings of the phone calls and screen grabs of the texts, which reference the Islamic State and include pictures of beheadings and armed Jihadis.

W5 has listened to the phone calls. In one, a man laughs as he says in Arabic: “I am the man who f****d you. I am your rapist.” A second caller denounces Yazidis as devil worshippers. And a third caller makes a graphic reference to rape.

The callers appear to have Iraqi, North African and Gulf state accents. York Regional Police have assembled a team to try to track where the calls are originating….

One of the phone calls came from a 1-800 number and another from an Alberta telephone exchange. Police say with “spoofing” apps, the calls could have been placed from anywhere in the world.

Gathering at a home in Richmond Hill, Ont., the women who survived so much trauma back in their homeland are once again in the grips of terror. Adiba, who was bought and sold six different times by ISIS fighters in 2014, says: “We came here for safety, but after these threats I don’t feel safe. We want to live without threats and fear.” Another, Milkeya, says : “I am scared. My son is four years old, he is scared.” Fearful that ISIS will come back and get them….

Top Virginia Democrats Imperiled By Blackface, Sex Assault Scandals

And then there were three. Is anyone really surprised at these scandals? Is anyone really surprised by revelations that show that the Democrat Party is really the party of racism and sexism? The identity politics with which the Democrat Party is obsessed is just an updated version of the old Jim Crow laws and slavery: it maintains the same obsession with race, and bases advancement on skin color rather than merit, which carries the obvious implication that black Americans are inferior and can’t make it on their accomplishments alone.

It’s the same thing with feminism: it’s a statement that women have to be favored because they’re women, which is tacitly saying women are inferior and need special breaks.

So now it turns out that top Virginia Democrats are racist and misogynists?

No surprise at all.

“Top Virginia Democrats imperiled by blackface, sex assault scandals,” by Gary Robertson, Reuters, February 7, 2019:

RICHMOND, Va., Feb 6 (Reuters) – The political crisis in Virginia deepened on Wednesday when the attorney general admitted to wearing blackface in the 1980s at a college party, becoming the state’s third high-ranking Democrat caught up in scandal.

Governor Ralph Northam was already fighting for his political life over a racist photo from his 1984 medical school yearbook that emerged last week, and the lieutenant governor sought on Wednesday to fend off allegations of sexual misconduct.

Attorney General Mark Herring, 57, who has expressed gubernatorial ambitions and called four days ago for Northam to resign, admitted in a statement he donned brown face paint at a party in 1980 to impersonate a rapper.

Northam, 59, acknowledged last weekend to having worn blackface – a practice dating to 19th century minstrel shows caricaturing slaves – in 1984 to impersonate Michael Jackson.

His admission came after a conservative media website published a photo on Friday from Northam’s page in his 1984 medical school year book showing one man wearing blackface beside another masked figure in robes of the white supremacist group the Ku Klux Klan.

After initially saying he was one of the two depicted in the photo, Northam changed his story and said neither was him.

A separate scandal engulfing Democratic Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax, 39, who is black and would succeed Northam were he to step down, intensified on Wednesday when a woman accused him of sexually assaulting her at the Democratic National Convention in 2004.

Herring, who like Northam is white, is second in line to succeed the governor as attorney general.

THIRD IN LINE

The simultaneous controversies embroiling the top three-elected politicians in the executive branch of Virginia’s government raised the unlikely prospect of Democrats losing the governorship to a Republican. Kirk Cox, Republican speaker of Virginia’s House of Delegates, is third in the constitutional line of succession.

Cox, 61, a former high school teacher who has served in the state’s Republican-controlled House since 1990, issued a statement on Wednesday saying the controversies in the executive branch “are disturbing” but “will be resolved in due course.” In the meantime, lawmakers would focus on budget deliberations and “hundreds of bills remaining before us.”

Legislators otherwise kept a low profile on Wednesday, ducking reporters as they left the state capitol in Richmond following Wednesday’s legislative session.

Northam has remained out of public view since Saturday, when he held a news conference to address the furor over his yearbook pictures, which sparked calls for his resignation from fellow Democrats in Virginia, a key swing state in the 2020 presidential race.

Civil rights groups and at least five Democratic candidates for the White House also have urged Northam to step down.

Despite the Democratic Party’s current zero tolerance for bigotry and sexual misconduct, Democrats might be motivated to rally behind Northam if faced with the prospect of Republicans suddenly assuming the governorship.

SEXUAL ASSAULT ALLEGATION DENIED

In his statement, Cox singled out the allegations against Fairfax as “extremely serious.” The lieutenant governor has acknowledged knowing his accuser but on Wednesday repeated his assertion their encounter was consensual.

The woman, Vanessa Tyson, in a statement issued by Washington law firm Katz, Marshall & Banks, said that Fairfax forced her to perform oral sex on him in a hotel room.

“I cannot believe, given my obvious distress, that Mr. Fairfax thought this forced sexual act was consensual,” Tyson said in the statement, which was published by multiple U.S. media outlets….

Apple Gives Deep State Access To Roger Stone’s iCloud Account – Refused To Violate Privacy of San Bernardino Jihad Terrorists

Editor’s Note:  I guess we can say that Apple was not being American when it came to the San Bernardino jihadis, but covering for them.  When an actual American needs those protections, they are all too willing to sell out.  So much for Steve Jobs’ way of doing things.  Apple: the new technological domestic enemy of Americans… and yes, I hope their stocks tank after this.  Stop using icloud and any other products “in the cloud,” and create your own that stays in the privacy of your own home.  Click here to start.

Traitors and totalitarians. We know that the social media giants have been at war with those who oppose jihad for quite some time, and are actively committed to banning and blocking counter-jihad accounts and imposing sharia blasphemy restrictions. But this is a step even farther. After touting defending the privacy rights of the San Bernardino jihad mass murderers, Apple turned on a dime and handed over access to all of Roger Stone’s data. This shows what they think is a worse crime: not jihad mass murder, but dissenting from the left’s agenda and supporting President Trump. Apple is evil.

“Apple Gives Deep State Access To Roger Stone’s iCloud Account, After Refusing To Violate Privacy of San Bernardino Terrorists,” by Jacob Engels, Gateway Pundit, February 6, 2019 (thanks to Todd):

Three years after Apple refused to give the federal government access to the devices used by the San Bernadino terrorists who killed and injured dozens in a mass shooting event, the company has given the office of the Special Counsel complete access to Trump advisor Roger Stone’s iCloud account, reports Apple Insider.

According to the Washington Post, Apple objected to giving the federal government backdoor access to the shooters iPhones, claiming it would “set a dangerous precedent.”

“From the beginning, we objected to the FBI’s demand that Apple build a backdoor into the
iPhone because we believed it was wrong and would set a dangerous precedent. As a result of the government’s dismissal, neither of these occurred. This case should never have been brought.”

Fast forward to present, and we see that Apple no longer seems to have the same privacy concerns it once did in 2015. Without any fight, they simply turned over Roger Stone’s iCloud passwords and God knows what else because Orange Man Bad. The fact that Apple views a political persecution less of a hill to die on than protecting the rights of terrorists who killed and maimed dozens of Americans is quite telling.

More from the Washington Post on Apple’s refusal to turn over access to the San Bernandino [sic] shooters devices…

“If allowed to stand, the order in Apple’s case would have forced company engineers to create software to disable a phone security feature so that the FBI could try its hand at unlocking the device by cracking a numeric password. Apple quickly resisted, arguing that forcing it to create such software would violate the company’s constitutional rights and weaken privacy for users around the world.”

Which makes us wonder… what exactly was Apple threatened with by Robert Mueller and the Office of the Special Counsel for them to abandon their firm stance against turning over user data and access to federal investigators? Surely they didn’t reason that two mass shooters were more deserving of their tough stand against government overreach and backdoor programs? There must be some explanation as to how they could give the federal government the power to access our privately held devices and accounts at will right?…

Rep. Ilhan Omar Blamed ‘Our Involvement In Other People’s Affairs’ For Bloody Jihad Massacre On Kenyan Mall

The Jihad Caucus continues to debase America, while the Democrat Party leadership (Nancy Pelosi) does nothing. Would Rep. Ilhan Omar defend Al-Shabaab (who are from her native Somalia) if they were to carry out a Jihad attack against America or Americans?

You bet she would.

Since Omar is a Muslim woman, her radical and dangerous views will continue to go unchallenged by the depraved mainstream media as well.

New York’s Rep. Lee Zeldin has been confronting Omar on social media. All Republicans should do the same, and expose this vicious Jihadi along with her fellow Jihad Caucus members.

What is the GOP waiting for?

It is shocking how little resistance the GOP showed when Nancy Pelosi allowed Omar to take up a seat in the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

Ocasio-Cortez Joins Forces With Infamous Jeremy Corbyn – Calls For Global Socialist (Nazi) Movement

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and notorious Nazi Jeremy Corbyn have joined forces. Echoing Germany’s National Socialist Workers Party (Nazi Party), this is the 21st century version, the International Socialist Workers Party. Their rhetoric and policy recommendation differ little from those of Socialist leader Adolf Hitler:

To put it quite clearly: we have an economic programme. Point No. 13 in that programme demands the nationalisation of all public companies, in other words socialisation, or what is known here as socialism. … the basic principle of my Party’s economic programme should be made perfectly clear and that is the principle of authority… the good of the community takes priority over that of the individual. But the State should retain control; every owner should feel himself to be an agent of the State; it is his duty not to misuse his possessions to the detriment of the State or the interests of his fellow countrymen. That is the overriding point. The Third Reich will always retain the right to control property owners. If you say that the bourgeoisie is tearing its hair over the question of private property, that does not affect me in the least. Does the bourgeoisie expect some consideration from me?… Today’s bourgeoisie is rotten to the core; it has no ideals any more; all it wants to do is earn money and so it does me what damage it can. The bourgeois press does me damage too and would like to consign me and my movement to the devil.

Hitler’s interview with Richard Breiting, 1931, published in Edouard Calic, ed., “First Interview with Hitler, 4 May 1931”

There is a difference between the theoretical knowledge of socialism and the practical life of socialism. People are not born socialists, but must first be taught how to become them.

“German Volksgenossen!” Hitler’s opening speech at the new Winterhilfswerk, Deutschlandhalle, Berlin, October 5, 1937.

Socialism as the final concept of duty, the ethical duty of work, not just for oneself but also for one’s fellow man’s sake, and above all the principle: Common good before own good, a struggle against all parasitism and especially against easy and unearned income. And we were aware that in this fight we can rely on no one but our own people. We are convinced that socialism in the right sense will only be possible in nations and races that are Aryan, and there in the first place we hope for our own people and are convinced that socialism is inseparable from nationalism.

Adolf Hitler “Why We Are Anti-Semites,” August 15, 1920 speech in Munich at the Hofbräuhaus.

Ocasio-Cortez Touts Phone Call With Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn

BY: Cameron Cawthorne, WFB, February 4, 2019:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) on Sunday said it was an “honor to share such a lovely and wide-reaching conversation” with U.K. Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn about their common cause to take on billionaires, polluters, and “migrant baiters.”

Corbyn, who has a history of making anti-Semitic remarks, tweeted that it was “Great to speak to @AOC on the phone this evening and hear first hand how she’s challenging the status quo.” He went on to talk about the importance of  “build[ing] a movement across borders to take on the billionaires, polluters and migrant baiters, and support a happier, freer and cleaner planet.”

Ocasio-Cortez responded with a tweet of her own.

“It was an honor to share such a lovely and wide-reaching conversation with you, @jeremycorbyn!” Ocasio-Cortez said. “Also honored to share a great hope in the peace, prosperity, + justice that everyday people can create when we uplift one another across class, race, + identity both at home & abroad.”

In response to Ocasio-Cortez’s praise of Corbyn, Elad Nehorai, a writer for the Forward and Haaretzwarned Ocasio-Cortez of Corbyn’s history of anti-Semitism. He said he hopes the congresswoman will “take a look at the amount of Jews trying to call attention to Corbyn’s long, documented history of anti-Semitism.”

“Hi @PopChassid – thank you for bringing this to me. We cannot + will not move forward without deep fellowship and leadership with the Jewish community. I’ll have my team reach out,” Ocasio-Cortez responded.

Ocasio-Cortez, a self-described democratic socialist, has a history of being critical of Israel. During her campaign, she tweeted that the killing of Palestinians at mass border protests by Israeli security forces was “a massacre.” She has also tried to have it both ways on a two-state solution with Israel and the Palestinians depending on who is asking her about it. When asked whether she supported a two-state solution during an interview with  the left-wing Democracy Now!, she said, “this is a conversation that I’m engaging with with activists right now.”

The Times of Israel outlines Corbyn’s history of anti-Semitism, including his attendance at a memorial for terrorists who killed 11 Israelis at the Munich Olympic Games in 1972. His attendance at the event drew rebuke from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

In the 1980s, Corbyn sponsored and spoken for a group called the Labour Movement Campaign for Palestine whose official platform declared its “opposition to the Zionist state as racist, exclusivist, expansionist and a direct agency of imperialism.” A conference it held in 1984 demanded that the Labour Party’s key institutions “support the Palestinian people in their struggle for a democratic and secular state in the whole of Palestine”; materials published by the movement for the event proclaimed that it sought “to eradicate Zionism.”

In 2009 Corbyn called Hamas and Hezbollah his “friends” and said that Hamas was working to achieve peace and justice; he subsequently apologized for the comment. In 2012 he defended an anti-Semitic mural — for which he also subsequently apologized. In 2013, he said British “Zionists” don’t understand British irony.

In 2014 he laid flowers at a cemetery where Palestinian terrorists who murdered Israeli athletes in Munich in 1972 are buried. Appearing at a Labour Friends of Israel reception during his party’s annual conference in 2015, soon after he had been elected Labour leader, he was heckled after giving an address during which he did not mention the word “Israel.”

In 2018 when Labour belatedly adopted the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s working definition of anti-Semitism, Corbyn sought in vain to add a caveat that it should not be considered anti-Semitic to describe Israel and/or the circumstances of Israel’s establishment as racist.

New Video Exposes CAIR Operative’s Lie About Being Threatened & Fearful At Florida Free Speech Rally In Support Of Anabelle Lima-Taub

I have been covering the leftist/jihadi smear campaign against a brave Jewish politician in Hallandale, Florida who has been targeted for removal by terror-tied Hamas group CAIR and their leftwing lapdog Michele Lazarow on the commission. The local press, as is their way, demonize the wrong people.

See:

On Saturday, Robert Spencer wrote an article at the Geller Report about an execrable hit piece by Sarah Blaskey of the Miami Herald, targeting Anabelle Lima-Taub, a Florida official who called out Muslim Rep. Rashida Tlaib for her Jew-hatred. In the article, Spencer notes that Blaskey wrote about a video in which Hamas-CAIR operative Rasha Mubarak was jeered at and menaced by men wearing MAGA hats — while, Blaskey wrote, Mubarak was filming them on her phone. Mubarak told Blaskey she feared she would be physically attacked. Yet Blaskey did not link this video, and it may not even exist. I received this email from a Geller Report reader who sent me this video, showing that Mubarak was never menaced or in fear. A CAIR operative lying — it’s like breathing for them.

I read your response piece about the Miami Herald story and your perspective was very accurate.

I was there to speak in support of Lima-Taub and her 1st amendment rights.

I happen to have taken some video of the small crowd that gathered outside prior to the meeting where various people with opposing views peaceful expressed their opinions.

I happened to observe a woman and a gentlemen, neither of which I knew who they were, but later learned the woman was named Mubarak. You will see she was in the crowd with the gentleman, he left the crowd to speak to a reporter as did Mubarak to stand near them, then she returned into the crowd, she didn’t appear threatened or appear as someone who was in fear for her safety. If she was, why would she walk back into the crowd?

Prior to speaking at the meeting, I was seated outside the commission chambers on a bench waiting my turn to speak, as the chamber was filled to capacity, and seated on the bench seated to the left of me was the the speaker who would be speaking after me, that was Ms Mubarak. I sat next to her for 30+ mins awaiting my turn, we chatted casually, she was watching the meeting live feed from her laptop. She didn’t appear at all shaken or in fear.

If you look carefully, there were a couple of people wearing MAGA hats who were completely on the opposite side of the crowd from Mubarak, there were also some people wrapped in Israeli flags, some of those were actually children.

This entire spectacle was not created by Lima-Taub’s initial comment, but rather by the media frenzy that was created over it by commissioner Michele Lazarow and her paid political consultants/lobbyists who first went to the Sun-Sentinel to push this story into the media spotlight. That’s the real story. This isn’t about hate and opposing views, this is all about a vindictive commissioner and her consultant retaliating against Lima-Taub, who they they want off the commission so they can keep their power and corruption that they bring to this very small beachfront town.
