Reward for information regarding Seth Rich

One America News Network (OAN) is offering a $100,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of a suspect in former DNC staffer Seth Rich’s murder case.

The Herring Networks, Inc. media company OAN joins a number of individuals and groups that are willing to pay for information that solves the July 10, 2016, killing of Mr. Rich. The election-season murder continues to spark conspiracy theories based on the suggestion that Mr. Rich provided DNC data to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks.

“One America News believes solving this case — and bringing Rich’s murderer to justice — is essential to exposing the truth for the American people,” OAN’s Greta Wall reported Monday. “We are offering a $100,000 reward for any information that leads to the arrest of a suspect in the case. If you have any information, please email us at tips@oann.com.”

Others offering rewards include the Washington, D.C. Police Department ($25,000); WikiLeaks ($20,000); and Republican strategist Jack Burkman ($130,000).

FBI CIA and NSA Employees Leak Info for Money or, like ISIS, a Cause

On May 24, 2017, the New York Times published classified photos taken at the crime scene of the terrorist bombing in Manchester. These photos contained secret and classified information that were unfortunately sent to one of the security organizations in the United States—most likely to the FBI and possibly to the CIA or even the NSA.

Unfortunately, the FBI, CIA and NSA are no longer secure due to their illegal leaks of information.

The leakers are in it either for the money or, like ISIS terrorists, for a cause, political or otherwise.

The leakers appear to be completely safe from discovery or prosecution.

C. J. Chivers

C. J. Chivers – the leaker’s helper

The May 23, 2017 article containing the classified photographs was written by C.J. Chivers, an “investigative reporter who works for The New York Times Magazine and the Investigations Desk.”  C. J. (Christopher John) Chivers was born in 1964 in New York. Chivers was assisted by Mika Gröndahl, K.K. Rebecca Lai, Sergio Peçanha and Derek Watkins in writing the article according to the New York Times.

Since Chivers, Gröndah, Lai, Peçanha and Derek Watkins all participated in exposing classified information, one might expect the “authorities” to investigate them thoroughly. Surely, there is a path from one of these individuals to the source of the leak. Unfortunately, nothing has happened to them and they go scot-free and unpunished for their collusion in publishing the leak.

The mayor of Manchester, Andy Burnham, lashed out after crime scene photos from the bombing there that left 22 dead were leaked to the media — calling doing so “wrong and disrespectful.”

“I felt sick to the pit of my stomach,” Burnham said, describing his reaction to seeing crime scene photos published on The New York Times website.

Burnham, a former rising star in the Tony Blair Labour Party who was elected mayor this month, said he thought the forensic images were especially distressing to victims’ families. Burnham said he has been to the crime scene, which he called a “harrowing experience,” but he said the families of the victims have not had that chance yet.

“To see pictures of it not even in the media here,” he told ABC News. “It was a pretty, pretty tough thing to see.”

Burnham said he thinks the leak is “wrong, it is arrogant, and it is disrespectful to the people of Greater Manchester and particular to the families of those injured during this, our darkest hour.”

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Theresa May has raised her concerns over alleged intelligence leaks from the Manchester bombing investigation with U.S. President Donald Trump.

May discussed the matter with Trump after they posed with other NATO leaders at a summit in Brussels on Thursday. The U.S. and British leaders talked again later, sitting next to each other at a working dinner. May looked stern, while Trump waved his hands.

Manchester police stopped providing information to the United States about the Monday concert bombing after photos of the crime scene appeared in the New York Times.

May said earlier Thursday that she would stress to Trump “that intelligence that is shared between law enforcement agencies must remain secure.”

So, the likes of Chivers, Gröndah, Lai, Peçanha and Derek Watkins will go on with their work—unpunished and unafraid.

Ignoring Chivers, Gröndah, Lai, Peçanha and Derek Watkins, should we also ignore Comey, Brennan, Clapper, Muller, Alexander and Rogers? Some, if not all of these CIA, FBI and NSA Directors have failed miserably in their duties and ruined the reputations of America’s intelligence organizations.

The Rise and Fall? of James Comey

There are very few crime or mystery novels that approach this true story for its compelling drama, intrigue and brinkmanship (with the nation in the balance).

Let’s begin at the beginning. James Brien Comey Jr., born December 14, 1960) served as the seventh Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) from September 2013 until May 2017.

Prior to joining the FBI, Comey had been the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York from January 2002 to December 2003, and subsequently the United States Deputy Attorney General from December 2003 to August 2005.

In August 2005, Comey left the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and became general counsel and senior vice president of Lockheed Martin, based in Bethesda, Maryland. In 2010, he became general counsel at Bridgewater Associates, a hedge fund based in Westport Connecticut. In early 2013, he left Bridgewater to become a Senior Research Scholar and Hertog Fellow on National Security Law at Columbia Law School. He also served on the Board of Directors of HSBC Holdings until July 2013.

In September 2013, Comey was appointed Director of the FBI by President Barack Obama. In that capacity, he was responsible for overseeing the FBI’s investigation of the Hillary Clinton email controversy. His role in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, particularly regarding his public communications, was highly controversial.

Comey was abruptly dismissed by President Donald Trump on May 9, 2017.

Don’t believe the fake-media story that Trump made a mistake or huge gaffe by firing Comey.

Don’t believe the media narrative from the left that it was an attempt to silence Comey from some investigation into Trump.

James Comey is a deep-water Swamp Denizen who has been highly paid to provide cover for high-level corruption by the Clintons and Obama. He is and has been central to the attempt to destroy the Trump campaign and then the Trump administration from the start.

It was very clever how the President fired Comey when Comey was 3,000 miles away from the convenience his office and records. Comey had no inkling he was being cut, that all his files, computers, and everything in his office were seized by his boss Sessions and the Justice Department. This was not a violation of protocol, it was tactical. Notice how Trump compartmentalized the strike and did not inform any of his White House “staff” to prevent leaks. Notice how he emasculated Comey and the swamp denizens by letting them know in a tweet that the Attorney General got information (surveillance “tapes” from the seizure of Comey’s office) to let Comey and his handlers know that Trump’s DOJ has the goods on them. This was a brilliant strategic move at exactly the right time against horrible, evil and corrupt powers infesting our government.

The Comey Scams

Comey was a minor assistant US attorney in the late 90’s. He only gained power and money by being the DOJ official who “investigated” and cleared Bill Clinton of any wrong-doing in Clinton’s totally corrupt pardon (for huge payoffs) of criminal financier Marc Rich as Clinton was leaving the Presidency.

Marc Rich was an international commodities trader, hedge fund manager, financier and businessman. He was best known for founding the commodities company Glencore and for being indicted in the United States on federal charges of tax evasion and making controversial oil deals with Iran.

Rich was in Switzerland at the time of the indictment and never returned to the United States. He received a controversial presidential pardon from U.S. President Bill Clinton on January 20, 2001, Clinton’s last day in office.

Clinton’s critics alleged that Rich’s pardon had been bought, as Denise Rich had given more than $1 million to Clinton’s political party, including more than $100,000 to the Senate campaign of the president’s wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton, and $450,000 to the Clinton Library foundation during Clinton’s time in office.

Federal Prosecutor Mary Jo White was appointed to investigate Clinton’s last-minute pardon of Rich. She stepped down before the investigation was finished and was replaced by James Comey.

Rich’s lawyer, Jack Quinn, had previously been Clinton’s White House Counsel and chief of staff to Clinton’s Vice President, Al Gore, and had had a close relationship with Holder. According to Quinn, Holder had advised that standard procedures be bypassed and the pardon petition be submitted directly to the White House. Congressional investigations were also launched. Clinton’s top advisors, Chief of Staff John Podesta, White House Counsel Beth Nolan, and advisor Bruce Lindsey, testified that nearly all the White House staff advising the president on the pardon request had urged Clinton to not grant Rich a pardon.

Consequently, Comey provided “cover” for the Clintons in their gaining incredible power and wealth after leaving office through pardoning a billionaire money-launderer, arms dealer and criminal. Comey was a key piece in how the Clintons upped their corruption game and gained incredible wealth through their foundation after leaving the White House. A huge part of the scheme was giving Marc Rich a free pass when he should have spent life in prison, and that is what Comey covered-up for the Clintons. This set up Comey to be part of the corruption machine, making him powerful and wealthy.

Immediately after doing the Clinton’s dirty work as a DOJ official, Comey resigned from the DOJ and took a position as the head attorney of the Lockheed Martin company, a huge military contractor. While he was in that position Lockheed became a major contributor of millions to the Clinton Foundation. In return for these payments, Lockheed received huge contracts from Hillary’s state department. Comey was the chief legal officer of Lockheed throughout this period of contributions to Clinton Inc. in return for State Dept. contracts.

In late 2012, after overseeing Lockheed’s successful relationship with the Hillary State Department and the resulting profits, Comey stepped down from Lockheed and received a $6 million-dollar payout for his services.

James Comey’s $3.05 million seven-bedroom, 7,157-square-foot in an exclusive town on Connecticut’s “Gold Coast”

In 2013, the largest bank of England, HSBC Holdings, was deep into a scandal. Investigations by federal authorities and law-enforcement had revealed that for years HSBC had been laundering billions of dollars for Mexican Drug Cartels and moving money for Iran in violation of the sanctions, and other major criminal activity. HSBC’s criminality was pervasive and deliberate by the Bank and its officials. HSBC was a huge Clinton Foundation contributor of many millions throughout the “investigation” and Bill Clinton was being paid large personal fees for speaking at HSBC events while Hillary was Secretary of State.  Eric Holder and the Obama Justice Department did what they were paid to do, and let HSBC off the hook for a paltry 1.2 billion dollar fine and not one Director, officer or management member at HSBC was fired or charged with any criminal.

At the same time when everyone involved with HSBC Bank, including the Clintons and all their “donors,” were being let off without penalty, and cover had to be provided to HSBC, Comey was appointed as a Director and Member of the Board of HSBC becoming a part of the effort to cover up the scandal and make HSBC “respectable” again.

After about a year as HSBC director, despite his lack of any law enforcement experience, no DOJ leadership experience, and no qualifications for the job, Comey was appointed FBI director by Obama.

The only qualification Comey had was that the Clinton’s and their cronies knew Comey was in bed with them, was compromised and was willing to do their dirty work. Comey was appointed to the FBI right when Hillary was leaving the State Department, and was vulnerable to the FBI because she had been using a private server, mishandling classified information, selling access to favors/contracts from the State Department to Clinton Foundation donors like Comey’s Lockheed Martin, and much more.

The obvious conclusion is that Comey was appointed to the FBI to run interference for the Clinton’s and Obama’s at the nation’s federal law enforcement agency (in conjunction with a corrupt Department of Justice). Comey was and is owned by the Clintons. He owed all his power and wealth to being part of their machine and providing them with cover.

In late 2015 and early 2016, information began to surface regarding the Clinton Foundation and its use by the Clinton’s as a multi-billion-dollar slush fund for corruption and political favors.

This was right as Hillary was beginning her campaign for President. It was revealed that the Foundation had never completed required reports or had an audit. The FBI, under Comey, began an “investigation” of the Clinton Funds. A “professional” accounting firm was brought in by the Clintons to do a review, file some reports, make recommendations to the Clinton Foundation Board, and provide a veneer of legitimacy to the Clinton Fund operations. Predictably, one of the partners in the firm that was chosen (and paid lots of money) is Peter Comey, yes—the brother of James Comey. This brother owes or owed James Comey $700,000 for a loan James gave him to buy a house. To date, nothing has happened as a result of the FBI “investigation” of the Clintons under James Comey.

No one in congress or federal law enforcement was intending to pursue the Clintons, but Judicial Watch and other independent sources obtained information proving that Hillary had been running her own server, sending out classified information, etc. This information began to come out right in the middle of her campaign to be coronated as President. A “show” investigation had to be performed to appear to look into it and clear her. Who to use—the reliable shill, James Comey.

As head of the FBI, Comey—with his lackeys in key positions—deliberately screwed up the investigation into Hillary’s use of a private server. The investigation was deliberately mishandled in every aspect. Comey gave immunity to most all of Hillary’s lackeys; did not use subpoenas or warrants; failed to do any searches or seizures of evidence; did not use a grand-jury, in short everything that could be done to ruin the FBI investigation and to cover for Hillary was done. A “slam-dunk” case became a mess. Immunity was given every witness even though they provided no help. Maybe more importantly, by focusing the FBI on the email scandal, attention was drawn away from the much bigger scandal of the Clinton Foundation that could bring down a huge number of corrupt politicians, lobbyists, and even governments.

Lorretta Lynch was supposed to complete the coverup for Hillary as Attorney General by issuing a finding that the deliberately botched FBI “investigation” did not justify prosecution of Hillary. But Bill Clinton screwed up and met with Loretta Lynch in Arizona shortly before she was supposed to make her decision on Hillary. At this point, Lynch could no longer credibly squash the Hillary scandal. The solution—give the job to Comey. The Clinton’s owned him and he would have to do whatever was necessary to provide cover.

Comey then went on national TV and violated every rule of the FBI, the Justice Department and American law enforcement by revealing some of the FBI’s “evidence” of what Hillary did and, then declared that there was no “intent” and clearing Hillary. Normally the FBI Director does not pass on whether a case should be prosecuted or not, but with Loretta Lynch compromised, Comey did what he was ordered to do. The Justice Department and Obama backed Comey’s coverup and it looked like Hillary had survived the scandal.

Then, right before the election, the New York Police Department (NYPD) obtained pervert Anthony Wiener’s laptop and found classified emails from Hillary on the laptop. The NYPD began leaking details to the media and the story was about to explode. Once again, Comey stepped in to cover Hillary. He short-circuited the NYPD leaks by publicly acknowledging the laptop and the emails, but then claimed just days later that hundreds of thousands of emails had all been reviewed and “nothing new” was on the laptop. Once again, Comey had done his job by providing cover and FBI “protection” for Hillary.

If Hillary had won, Comey would have kept right on providing cover for the corruption of the Clinton machine. He would have kept the FBI paralyzed, prevented the Clinton Fund from being investigated, and continued to do his job for the Clintons

Trump unexpectedly wins the election

With Trump’s surprising win of the election, the Swamp the Deep State realized they were at risk from this political outsider who was not one of them. Before Trump took office, a plan was designed and put into place to ruin Trump’s administration and force him out of the Presidency. The key players committed to the plan consisted of the democrat Party, the media, the Obama-Clinton operatives imbedded throughout the intelligence agencies and the entire bureaucracy including JAMES COMEY. The scheme was to smear Trump with Russian “connections,” through a fake FBI “investigation” and to trap him into a charge of criminal interference with the FBI.

The surveillance of the Trump campaign which had actually started prior to the election was continued after the election.

Participants were “unmasked” illegally, and “transcripts” were leaked throughout the government and to the media. There is no actual evidence of any collusion or connection between Trump or his campaign with Russia, but that did not prevent Comey from initiating an “investigation” at the FBI. This provided Comey with protection from Trump firing him immediately. Comey or his minions steadily leaked news of the “Russia Investigation” to the media, and the media did its job by passing the fake news on to the public.

Immediately after Trump was sworn in, the DOJ Hillary/Obama operatives and Comey started the direct attack. This was before Sessions has been appointed to the Department of Justice and the DOJ is still controlled by Obama operatives.

DOJ Obama appointee Sally Yates approached the Whitehouse with news that General Flynn had been in contact with Russia and alleged that he might be compromised. She revealed that there is an FBI “investigation” into the Russia ties (which they are constantly leaking to the media themselves). The White House Counsel—who Yates talked to, not Trump—asked for more information.

The day before the promised additional information was to be provided by Yates to the Whitehouse, Comey set up a dinner with Trump. If he can get Trump to ask about Flynn or try to intervene regarding Flynn or Russia then Trump can be charged with “interfering with an FBI investigation.” It is not unlikely that Comey had this meeting surveilled.

This is a two-pronged attack. It protected Comey and DOJ Democrat holdovers from being terminated by the new administration because they are involved in an “ongoing investigation” that they control the timetable on (albeit one with absolutely no evidence). If Trump fires Comey then he is “interfering with the investigation” which is itself a federal crime that the FBI could then “investigate.” Alternatively, if they can get Trump to question Comey about Flynn or try to get him to back off from Flynn or the “Russia” investigation, then they again have him “interfering.”

Trump knew it was a set up by Comey and that he is probably being recorded. Comey tells Trump that Trump is not under investigation regarding Russia, but that others involved with the campaign are being investigated. Trump did not take the bait in attempting to intervene about Flynn or the Russia scam. Later, Flynn was fired by Trump because Flynn is being used by Comey to try to damage Trump.

Comey verbally told Trump on two more occasions that he, Trump, was not being investigated, but refused to state this fact publicly or when testifying in Congress.

Trump now had to get his Attorney General and Deputy AG in place and get rid of Comey in a way that would allow Trump to obtain all the information that Comey has been accumulating.

Under oath, both Sally Yates and Intelligence officials from the Obama administration state that there was no actual evidence of any collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. More importantly, Comey, while refusing to say that Trump was not under investigation, testified that he has informed the Senate Intelligence Committee heads who exactly is under investigation regarding Russia.

Trump told almost no one at the White House that he was moving against Comey. Trump somehow contacted Sen. Grassley, Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, and confirmed that Comey told the Senator that Trump was not under investigation personally. Somehow Comey traveled to California, perhaps maneuvered there by Trump.

Trump seized the moment to take action. While Comey was in California, 3,000 miles away and 7 hours from his office, Trump fires Comey. Trump’s letter firing Comey was hand-delivered to the FBI headquarters by DOJ officials who were ordered to lock-down and seize everything in Comey’s office, including all surveillance files. All Comey’s files, docs, computers and “tapes” were taken to Sessions people at DOJ. They were not taken to the Whitehouse or to Trump, but to Sessions, who has every right to have them. Sessions was then in a position tell Trump that Comey had surveillance tapes of Trump that contradict what Comey has been telling Trump, and perhaps tapes of conversations with other swamp “conspirators.” But Trump did not and does not have them personally or at the Whitehouse.

Comey learned that he has been fired when the media broadcasted it in California. He had no idea it was coming. On cue, the Democrat politicians and media began screaming about Trump’s “interference with the Russia investigation” in accordance with the plan to set up Trump for that charge. The Swamp wanted to blow up the Russia narrative using Comey, and Comey was set to testify before Congress to try to hurt Trump by saying he was interfering with the FBI investigation. Comey fully intended to follow through with the plan to take down Trump.

But because of his brilliant timing on this, Trump has Comey’s files, documents and information safely with Sessions at DOJ. Trump sent out a “crazy” tweet that says: “James Comey better hope that there are no “tapes” of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press.”

The media and the politicians went crazy about the “inappropriateness” of this tweet.  They accused Trump of “taping” everyone at the White House. Notice that Trump did not say he taped anyone, or that he has any tapes at the White House. It seems apparent that Trump was telling Comey that the DOJ has the surveillance information and files from Comey’s office. Comey and Trump’s opponents understand the clear message—their plan was in trouble and Trump’s DOJ is now holding all the cards.

The whole Russia interference scheme crashed and burns. While the mouthpiece media, Hollywood and the insane fringe continued to scream about Russia and Comey being fired, the politicians who will soon be in the crosshairs of a legitimate (and ticked) FBI and DOJ were starting to fall strangely silent. Comey realized all the leverage is with Trump.

AG Sessions and his Deputy AG are now able use the Comey trove of information to determine who has been part of the Comey Syndicate at the FBI. They will be appointing an “interim” Director of the FBI shortly who has not been compromised by Comey, Clinton or Obama. That “interim” Director does not have to be approved by Congress or anyone, and can immediately begin cleaning house at the FBI of all Comey/Clinton/Obama minions, initiating investigations of the Clintons, Clinton Fund, violations of intelligence confidentiality laws by Susan Rice and Obama.

Using the Comey files they can be certain they are not getting another Comey as an “interim”, and they do not have to wait for the circus of appointing a new permanent “Director.” Most of the heavy lifting on rooting out FBI corruption and starting investigations into the swamp will be done by the “interim” before a new director is appointed.

In one masterstroke, Trump eliminated a truly toxic and dangerous enemy to his administration and our country, dealt a horrendous blow to the Clinton/Obama and deep state machines, and begun the restoration of the integrity of the FBI and the DOJ.

The Mysterious Murder of Democratic National Committee Staffer, Seth Rich

Is a disgruntled Democratic National Committee (DNC) staffer the source of the DNC emails and perhaps others appearing on WikiLeaks?

On July 8, 2016, 27-year-old Democratic staffer Seth Rich was shot and murdered about a block from his apartment in the quiet and respectable Bloomingdale neighborhood of Washington, D.C.. The killer or killers took nothing from their victim, leaving behind his wallet, watch and phone.

Shortly after the killing, social media users were pursuing a “lead” saying that Rich was on his way to the FBI the morning of his murder, apparently intending to speak to special agents about an “ongoing court case” possibly involving the Clinton family.

Seth Rich’s father, Joel, told reporters, “If it was a robbery — it failed because he still has his watch, he still has his money — he still has his credit cards, still had his phone so it was a wasted effort except we lost a life.”

The Metropolitan police have posted a reward for information on Rich’s murder—with no takers.

In August, Wikileaks offered a $20,000 reward for information on the murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich.

This comes after internet entrepreneur and hacker, Kim DotCom, admitted on Saturday that he was part of an operation along with Seth Rich to get stolen DNC emails to Wikileaks.

Julian Assange suggested back in August 2015 that Seth Rich was a Wikileaks informant. In addition, an anonymous person who works in Washington DC, alleged that high-ranking current and former Democratic Party officials are terrified of the Seth Rich murder investigation as it will show that it is not Russia who is interfering with the U.S. election.

It wasn’t the Russians? And what does Comey know about this or is he part of the cover-up?

The anonymous post released May 20, 2017 reads:

“Anons, I work in D.C.

I know for certain that the Seth Rich case has scared the shit out of certain high ranking current and former Democratic Party officials.

This is the reason why they have backed away from impeachment talk. They know the smoking gun is out there, and they’re terrified you will find it, because when you do it will bring the entire DNC, along with a couple of very big name politicians.

It appears that certain DNC thugs were not thorough enough when it came time to cover their tracks. Podesta saying he wanted to “make an example of the leaker” is a huge smoking gun.”

“The behavior is near open panic. To even mention this name in D.C. Circles [sic] will bring you under automatic scrutiny. To even admit that you have knowledge of this story puts you in immediate danger.

If there was no smoke there would be no fire. I have never, in my 20 years of working in D.C. Seen such a panicked reaction from anyone.

What do Comey and the Democrats know?

June 9, 2017 Update:

Senator John McCain had some interesting questions for former FBI Director James Comey during his appearance in front of the committee on Thursday.

While other committee members focused on meetings and phone calls between President Donald Trump and the former FBI director, McCain harped on a probe into Hillary Clinton’s emails.

“In the case of Hilary Clinton you made the statement that there wasn’t sufficient evidence to bring a suit against her although it had been very careless in her behavior, but you did reach a conclusion in that case that it was not necessary to further pursue her. Yet at the same time in the case or Mr. Comey, you said that there was not enough information to make a conclusion. Tell me the difference between your conclusion as far as former Secretary Clinton is concerned and Mr. Trump,” McCain asked.

Comey evaded the question by telling McCain that while the Clinton investigation had been wrapped up, the Trump probe was ongoing when Comey was fired.

“The American people have a whole lot of questions out there particularly since you just emphasized the role that Russia played. And obviously she was a candidate for president at the time so she was clearly involved in this whole situation where fake news as you just described it ‘big deal’ took place,” McCain continued, “You’re gonna have to help me out here. In other words, we’re complete in the investigation and anything that former Secretary Clinton had to do with the campaign is over and we don’t have to worry about it anymore?”

Still evading an answer, Comey said, “I’m a little confused senator.”

McCain continued to press the point asking again how one investigation could be closed, while another remained open.

“I don’t quite understand how you could be done with that, but not be done with the whole investigation of their (Russia) attempt to affect the outcome of our investigation. So you’ve got one candidate that you’re done with, and another candidate that you have a long way to go, is that correct?” McCain continued.

Comey reiterated that the probes into the Clinton emails and the Trump campaign were separate investigations which was not the point at all.

The former FBI director called Russian involvement in the campaign ‘very serious’ but said that there was no investigation as to whether they had coordinated with the Clinton camp and why?

“So both President Trump and former candidate Clinton are both involved in the investigation, yet one of them you said there are going to be no charges, and the other one the investigation continues. Well, I think there’s a double standard there to tell you the truth,” McCain said closing the trap on Comey.

Later, McCain explained his line of questioning. “What I was trying to get at was whether Mr. Comey believes that any of his interactions with the President rise to the level of obstruction of justice. In the case of Secretary Clinton’s emails, Mr. Comey was willing to step beyond his role as an investigator and state his belief about what ‘no reasonable prosecutor’ would conclude about the evidence. I wanted Mr. Comey to apply the same approach to the key question surrounding his interactions with President Trump—whether or not the President’s conduct constitutes obstruction of justice. While I missed an opportunity in today’s hearing, I still believe this question is important, and I intend to submit it in writing to Mr. Comey for the record.”

“That thing”

Trump blows Comey a kiss as they meet

Then McCain attacked Comey on the subject of “that thing” that Comey and Trump had between them.

During the course of the conversation, according to Comey, Trump said: “I have been very loyal to you, very loyal; we had that thing you know.”

McCain expressed bewilderment that Comey never followed up with the president about what he meant by “that thing.”

“I think it would intensely arouse my curiosity if the president of the United States said, ‘that thing,’” McCain said. “I’d like to know what the hell ‘that thing’ is, particularly if I am the head of the FBI.’”

Comey said he had assumed Trump was referring to a thing that actually didn’t exist – a loyalty oath Trump had tried to secure from Comey, but never got.

“What I concluded at the time is that in his memory he was searching back to our encounter at the dinner and was preparing himself to say: ‘I offered loyalty to you,’” Comey said. “’You promised loyalty to me.’”

“And all of a sudden his memory showed him that did not happen, and I think he pulled up short. That’s just a guess,” answered Comey evading the truth. What was “that thing?” Was it a favor, an understanding, a bribe. It seems that only Comey and Trump know the answer to that.

Good for McCain!

 Comey the Leaker

“Despite so many false statements and lies, total and complete vindication…and WOW, Comey is a leaker!” the president tweeted early Friday morning after Comey’s admission under oath at the Senate hearing that he leaked his document.

Trump was citing the former FBI director’s acknowledgement that he had leaked his own memos about his conversations with the president. Comey told members of the Senate Intelligence Committee that he had hoped to prod the Justice Department to appoint a special counsel to oversee the Russia investigation — which occurred last month. Comey did not only confess to what could be a serious crime, but interfered with the Justice Department’s decision on appointing a special council.

In so doing, Comey through his friend, Daniel Richman, under the bus for having Richman serve as a conduit to get the leak to the press. Richman confirmed by e-mail to several reporters that he was the “good friend” and law-school prof who Comey slipped the documents — then hightailed it out of his tony Brooklyn Heights home and refused to answer any more questions—a fugitive on the run thanks to his pal, Comey.

Now, President Donald Trump’s outside counsel will file a leak complaint regarding Comey’s leaked memos with the Department of Justice.

This is because Comey testified Thursday that he allowed a personal friend, Daniel Richman, to leak a memo of his conversations with the president to news outlets in hopes it would trigger the appointment of a special counsel. Since Comey’s memo was written while Comey was still FBI Director, and stored on FBI equipment, this is allegedly a crime on Comey’s part.

“I asked a friend of mine to share the content of a memo with the reporter,” Comey told the Senate yesterday during several hours of questioning. “I didn’t do it myself for a variety of reasons, but I asked him to because I thought that might prompt the appointment of a special counsel.”

In a statement after Comey’s testimony, Kasowitz labeled Comey as “one of these leakers” who are “actively attempting to undermine the president” and strongly suggested that federal authorities investigate Comey’s leaks.

Singapore teen blogger Amos Yee, 18, who was jailed twice in Singapore for posting political and religious criticism online, has been granted asylum in the United States.

Yee has been detained in the US since he arrived at Chicago’s O’Hare airport in December.

He came into the country on a tourist visa but truthfully told immigration officials he was actually seeking refuge.

Following Friday’s ruling, Yee is expected to be released shortly.

Judge Samuel Cole released a 13-page decision, which said Mr Yee faced persecution in Singapore for his political opinions.

“Yee has met his burden of showing that he suffered past persecution on account of his political opinion and has a well-founded fear of future persecution in Singapore,” Judge Coel ruled. “Accordingly, this court grants his application for asylum.”

In his 13-page opinion, Judge Samuel Cole said, Yee was described as a “young political dissident.” “The evidence presented at the hearing demonstrates Singapore’s prosecution of Yee was a pretext to silence his political opinions critical of the Singapore government,” Cole wrote.

Cole’s ruling went against the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, which had fought against Yee’s asylum request, arguing that the Singaporean government had legitimate reasons to arrest Yee. Yee has been jailed twice in Singapore for posting critical comments about Singapore’s former prime minister, and about Christianity and Islam online, and his situation has been a driving force in the debate over free speech and censorship in the Southeast Asian city-state.

Cole said testimony during Yee’s hearing showed that while the Singapore government’s stated reason for punishing him involved religion, “its real purpose was to stifle Yee’s political speech.” He said Yee’s prison sentence was “unusually long and harsh” especially for his age.

U.S.-based Human Rights Watch applauded the asylum decision and expressed hope the decision would not be appealed.

“Singapore excels at creating a pressure cooker environment for dissidents and free thinkers who dare challenge the political, economic and social diktats from the ruling People’s Action Party. It’s clear the Singapore government saw Amos Yee as the proverbial nail sticking up that had to be hammered down,” said a statement from Phil Robertson, HRW’s deputy Asia director.

Yee’s attorney Sandra Grossman said her client was elated with the news.

“He’s very excited to begin new life in the United States,” Grossman said.

Amos Yee is not the only one celebrating his US asylum win – many Singaporeans are pleased as well.

The teenage critic is one of Singapore’s most controversial figures, where he is viewed with exasperation but also a measure of sympathy. Singapore is known for its strict rules on free speech, especially when it comes to race and religion – rules which the US judge said have been used by the authorities to constrain dissent.

Following Mr Yee’s explosive remarks about Singapore’s late leader Lee Kuan Yew and Christianity, Mr Yee had continued to fall foul of the law by breaching bail conditions and making further critical comments about religion.

Even by leaving Singapore he has committed an offense, as he is avoiding mandatory military conscription.

Many Singaporeans empathize with Amos, who has clearly struggled with the country’s restrictions. “Congratulations Amos. He can now lead the free life he wants in the free world. It’s just his bad luck that he was born in Singapore,” said another commenter on Facebook.

Mr Yee’s lawyer, Sandra Grossman, said he could be released as early as Monday.

In statement, Ms Grossman applauded the judge’s decision and said, “The right to free speech is sacred, even when such speech is considered offensive.”

In September 2016, Yee was given a six-week prison sentence in Singapore after being found guilty of “wounding religious feelings” because he had posted a video critical of Christianity and Islam.

He was also jailed by a Singapore court for four weeks in 2015, for criticizing Christians and for posting a video about the country’s former Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew.

His video, posted on YouTube days after Lee Kuan Yew’s death, compared the widely-respected founding father of Singapore to Jesus Christ.

Singapore’s Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) stated, “The US adopts a different standard, and allows such hate speech under the rubric of freedom of speech. The US for example, in the name of freedom of speech, allows the burning of the Quran,” noted MHA.

“Singapore takes a very different approach. Anyone who engages in hate speech or attempts to burn the Quran, Bible, or any religious text in Singapore, will be arrested and charged.”

MHA also pointed out that the US Department of Homeland Security had opposed Yee’s asylum application on the basis that Yee had been legitimately prosecuted.

The Department of Homeland Security has 30 days (until Apr 24) to file an appeal.

25 Mar 2017 – Singapore MHA’s Comments on Amos Yee’s US Asylum Application

1. In 2015, Amos Yee was charged for engaging in hate speech against Christians.

2. He had said “Christians … are … power hungry and malicious but deceive others into thinking that they are compassionate and kind. Their impact and legacy will ultimately not last as more and more people find out that they are full of bull….. Similar to the Christian knowledge of the bible, and the work of a multitude of a priests.”

3. He was convicted on the charge. He was also convicted on another charge for publishing an obscene image. He was sentenced to a total of four weeks imprisonment for these charges.

4. In 2016, Yee was charged again for hate speech, this time against Muslims and Christians.

5. He had said “the Islamics seem to have lots of sand in their vaginas too…. But don’t mind them, they do after all follow a sky wizard and a pedophile prophet. What in the world is a ‘moderate muslim’? A f*****g hypocrite that’s what!……. With all due respect, Christians, you can shove that faith up your ass. Faith! Faith! I’d be damned at this retardation of humanity. F**k you, Christian shits”

6. He pleaded guilty to the charges, and was sentenced to six weeks imprisonment and a fine of $2000.

7. He was represented by counsel in both the 2015 and 2016 proceedings.

8. Yee had engaged in hate speech against Christians and Muslims.

9. The US adopts a different standard, and allows some such hate speech under the rubric of freedom of speech.

10. The US for example, in the name of freedom of speech, allows the burning of the Quran .

11. Singapore takes a very different approach. Anyone who engages in hate speech or attempts to burn the Quran, Bible, or any religious text in Singapore, will be arrested and charged.

12. The US Department of Homeland Security had opposed Yee’s asylum application, on the basis that Yee had been legitimately prosecuted.

13. It is the prerogative of the US to take in such people who engage in hate speech. There are many more such people, around the world, who deliberately engage in hate speech, and who may be prosecuted. Some of them, will no doubt take note of the US approach, and consider applying for asylum in the US.

Pamela Anderson and Julian Assange?

Pamela's Box Lunch for Julian

Pamela’s Box Lunch for Julian

I hope our site’s emails don’t appear in Wikileaks, but… what is going on between Pamela Anderson, and Julian Assange, currently of the Ecuadorian embassy in London?

The liaison(?) between the Baywatch beauty was first noticed in October 2016, when Pamela Anderson was photographed arriving at the Ecuadorian embassy to visit the Wikileaks founder, carrying what she said was a vegan meal box lunch and dressed to please.

And yet—Pamela and Julian have been rather coy about their relationship, and at considerable length. After all, Julian, while in his teens at 18, married a woman named Teresa, and in 1989 they had a son, Daniel Assange, now a software designer. Julian founded WikiLeaks in 2006 and hired staff and enlisted the help of volunteers.

Time magazine subsequently nominated him for its Person of the Year, calling him a “new kind of whistle-blower … for the digital age.” Shortly after the Afghan war releases, he became the subject of a sex crime case in Sweden. The Stockholm Criminal Court issued an international arrest warrant for Julian, saying he is suspected of rape, sexual molestation and illegal use of force in separate incidents. He could be sentenced to two years in prison if convicted. His main fear, however, is being extradited to the United States.

Grazia Magazine

Grazia Magazine

First up is Pamela, who speaks to the British magazine, Grazia, with the magazine allowing her to explain why she “demurred from answering whether she was in a relationship with Julian”. “It’s very difficult to talk about when you’re under surveillance,” explained Pamela, hinting she has a ton of viewers in the CIA.

As she took Grazia into her confidence, saying,  “He’s a great guy, I don’t want to say anything about whether there’s a romance. So, let’s say we’re just good friends.”

Grazia goes a bit further, exposing the fact that Pamela and Julian “have had a series of dates at the Ecuadorian embassy.” Unfortunately for the duo, Julian is still wanted in Sweden to answer sexual assault allegations (what a guy!).

According to Julian’s recent interview with an Australian radio, he says of Pamela, “I mean, I like her, she’s great.” Are they in love? “I’m not going to go into the private details. She’s an attractive person with an attractive personality.” And furthermore: “She’s no idiot at all – she’s psychologically very savvy.” You betcha!

“You’ve got people like Pamela Anderson who are independent because they kind of manage their own career,” adds Julian defending Pamela. “She can’t really be squeezed by, you know, a TV executive.” Huh? Squeezed?

And for Pamela’s remarks about Julian, she says, “It’s so rare that he has someone to come and visit him and bring him things, So I want to be able to do that for him.” Aw shucks.

Of course, poor Julian, his social life has been restricted.  Still, certain celebrities have been visiting him, including Kathy Lette, John Pilger, Yoko Ono and the like.

In the words of Pamela, “Wikileaks is one of the only reliable news stories because it’s just the truth, I really believe history will look back on him as such an important person.” Sigh!

Thinks are so good that on Valentine’s Day, Julian reactivated his five-year dormant Twitter account announcing: “Rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated (in a curious plot)”.

Can Kim Kardashian be far behind (no pun intended).

 

The Fake News from the CIA, CNN, MSNBC and Friends

CNN's Anderson Cooper

CNN’s Anderson Cooper

CNN has reported that President-elect Donald Trump and President Barack Obama had been briefed by the intelligence community on memos alleging there was communication between Trump’s campaign and Russian officials. The CIA briefed Obama before Trump was briefed. This was to get Obama’s consent for the leaking of the faked CIA report, before taking it to Trump. As most of us now know, the existence of highly-compromising material targeting Trump which was compiled by a former British intelligence officer.

The fake news originated as result of opposition research, first commissioned by anti-Trump Republicans, allegedly including Jeb Bush, and later by Democrats and anti-Trump Republicans.

While reporting the fake news, CNN admits it has not independently corroborated the specific allegations. In spite of this, CNN “reported” that the “while the former British intelligence officer’s work is credible, the specific allegations presented in the document have produced inconsistencies and have yet to be confirmed.” Is it news to report unconfirmed allegations? Absolutely not.

According to Paul Roderick Gregory, a Forbes Contributor, “We have reached a sad state of affairs where an anonymous report, full of bizarre statements, captures the attention of the world media because it casts a shadow over the legitimacy of a President-elect, who has not even taken the oath ofWe have reached a sad state of affairs where an anonymous report, full of bizarre statements, captures the attention of the world media because it casts a shadow over the legitimacy of a President-elect, who has not even taken the oath of office. For example, the Trump dossier is tonight’s lead item on German state television and on BBC. False news has become America’s international export to the world media.”

If you watch CNN and MSNBC clicking back and forth, you will see that their topics are well-coordinated—even being picked up by both networks at the same time.

The CIA is not new to the production of fake news. Their WMD assessment of Iraq led the U.S into the Iraq war with a cost more  has cost $1.7 trillion with an additional $490 billion in benefits owed to war veterans, expenses that could grow to more than $6 trillion. Even worse, a total of 4,491 U.S. service members were killed in Iraq between 2003 and 2014 along with and 32,226 wounded not counting those with psychological damage. The Iraq Body Count project found 174,000 Iraqis reported killed between 2003 and 2013, with between 112,000-123,000 of those killed being civilian noncombatants.

All this was due to incorrect information from the CIA.

Now, the CIA, backed by Republican and Democratic anti-Trump politicians, are spreading fake news to de-legitimise the election of Donald Trump. The CIA and its fellow travelers are not just bought off by the “military industrial complex” that President Eisenhower had warned about, but also by Big Pharma and other organizations who are buying of both our elected representatives and media pundits.

Obama has just sent 3,000 US soldiers in Poland. The troops are part of Obama’s attempt to undermine the Trump administrations relationship with Russia and is the largest US military reinforcement of Europe in decades. Risky business!

Now, there is talk and social media chatter about making Inauguration Day the biggest protest in the history of the United States.

Stay tuned!


Redacted Pages Of 9/11 Report Show Saudi Involvement

The U.S. 9/11 Report

The U.S. 9/11 Report

Former Sen. Bob Graham and others are urging the Obama administration to declassify redacted pages of a report that holds 9/11 secrets

In 10 days, President Obama will visit Saudi Arabia at a time of deep mistrust between the two allies, and lingering doubts about the Saudi commitment to fighting violent Islamic extremism. Saudi Arabia.

Obama claims Saudi Arabia to be part of the coalition against ISIS. However, Saudi Arabia, through its Wahhabi brand of Islam and financial support, is a backer of ISIS, along with other Arabian emirates.

Obama must be aware of this, so why is he visiting Saudi Arabia?

Obama’s visit also comes at a time when the White House and intelligence officials are reviewing whether to declassify one of the country’s most sensitive documents —known as the “28 pages.” They have to do with 9/11 and the possible existence of a Saudi support network for the hijackers while they were in the U.S.

For 13 long years, the 28 pages have been locked away in a secret vault. Only a small group of people have ever seen them.

Former U.S. Senator Bob Graham has been trying to get the 28 pages released since the day they were classified back in 2003, when he played a major role in the first government investigation into 9/11, stating, “I remain deeply disturbed by the amount of material that has been censored from this report. I think it is implausible to believe that 19 people, most of whom didn’t speak English, most of whom had never been in the United States before, many of whom didn’t have a high school education—could’ve carried out such a complicated task without some support from within the United States.”

Bob Graham won’t discuss the classified information in the 28 pages, he will say only that they outline a network of people that he believes supported the hijackers while they were in the U.S. He believes that the support for 9/11 came from Saudi Arabia, both from the Saudi government and from wealthy Saudis.

Graham and others believe the Saudi role has been soft-pedaled to protect a delicate relationship with a complicated kingdom where the rulers, royalty, riches and religion are all deeply intertwined in its institutions—and bribes to the right people.

Tim Roemer, a former Democratic congressman and U.S. ambassador to India, has read the 28 pages multiple times. First as a member of the Joint Inquiry and later as a member of the blue-ribbon 9/11 Commission which picked up where Congress’ investigation left off.

Roemer and others who have actually read the 28 pages, describe them as a working draft similar to a grand jury or police report that includes provocative evidence — some verified, and some not. They lay out the possibility of official Saudi assistance for two of the hijackers who settled in Southern California. That information from the 28-pages was turned over to the 9/11 Commission for further investigation. Some of the questions raised were answered in the commission’s final report. Others were not.

In January of 2000, the first of the hijackers landed in Los Angeles after attending an al Qaeda summit in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The two Saudi nationals, Nawaf al-Hazmi and Khalid al-Mihdhar, arrived with extremely limited language skills and no experience with Western culture. Yet, through an incredible series of circumstances, they managed to get everything they needed, from housing to flight lessons.

During their first days in L.A., witnesses place the two future hijackers at the King Fahd mosque in the company of Fahad al-Thumairy, a diplomat at the Saudi consulate known to hold extremist views. Later, 9/11 investigators would find him deceptive and suspicious and in 2003, he would be denied reentry to the United States for having suspected ties to terrorist activity.

Phone records show that Thumairy was also in regular contact with this man: Omar al-Bayoumi, a mysterious Saudi who became the hijackers biggest benefactor. He was a ghost employee with a no-show job at a Saudi aviation contractor outside Los Angeles while drawing a paycheck from the Saudi government.

On the morning of February 1, 2000, Bayoumi went to the office of the Saudi consulate where Thumairy worked. He then proceeded to have lunch at a Middle Eastern restaurant on Venice Boulevard where he later claimed he just happened to make the acquaintance of the two future hijackers.

In San Diego, Bayoumi found them a place to live in his own apartment complex, advanced them the security deposit and cosigned the lease. He even threw them a party and introduced them to other Muslims who would help the hijackers obtain government IDs and enroll in English classes and flight schools.

The very day Bayoumi welcomed the hijackers to San Diego, there were four calls between his cell phone and the imam at San Diego mosque, Anwar al-Awlaki, a name that should sound familiar. The mosque, Masjid Ar-Ribat al-Islami, is a Sunni mosque in San Diego, California, on 7173 Saranac Street.

The American-born Awlaki would be infamous a decade later as al Qaeda’s chief propagandist and top operative in Yemen until he was taken out by a CIA drone. But in January 2001, a year after becoming the hijackers’ spiritual adviser, he left San Diego for Falls Church, Virginia. Months later Hazmi, Mihdhar and three more hijackers would join him there.

On September 30, 2011, in Yemen, al-Awlaki was killed by two Predator drones based at a secret CIA base in Saudi Arabia, which  fired Hellfire missiles at a vehicle in which he was riding.

Wahhabism is one of the kingdom’s biggest exports. Saudi clerics, entrusted with Islam’s holiest shrines have immense power and billions of dollars to spread the faith. Building mosques and religious schools all over the world that have become recruiting grounds for violent extremists. 9/11 Commissioner John Lehman says all of this comes across in the 28 pages.

WHAT ALL AMERICANS NEED TO KNOW ABOUT HILLARY CLINTON’S ALLEGED SAP COMPROMISE

Retired Gen. Ed Coet

Retired Gen. Ed Coet

MAJ ED COET, USA (RET)

[COURTESY: CAPT Les Horn, USN (Ret)]

My name is Ed Coet. I am a retired US Army Intelligence Officer. In my last job in the army I was the Chief of the Human Intelligence Branch for the US European Command in Stuttgart, Germany. In that capacity I was also the Designated Program Manager for a Special Access Program (SAP) like the SAP that Hillary Clinton is alleged to have compromised in the most recent State Department Inspector General report to congress and which has been widely reported in the news. Here is what I personally know about SAP’s and what I can attest to in an unclassified forum:

1. The names of each SAP are themselves classified Top Secret because the information within the SAP are far and above Top Secret.

2. SAP’s are so sensitive that even people who have security clearances giving them access to Top Secret Sensitive Compartment Information (TS SCI), an enormously high security clearance level, cannot have accesses to a SAP’s unless they receive a special indoctrination into the SAP based on an operational “must know” that exceeds all other “need to know” standards.

3. Being “read on” for a SAP is far more then acknowledging in writing that you have been briefed on the SAP. It is an in-depth “indoctrination” into the given SAP, and each SAP is itself compartmented separately from other SAPS. Having access to one SAP does not give you access to another SAP, and in fact rarely does. Only a tiny handful of people have knowledge of all SAP’s. SAP’s are the most stringently compartmented and protected information in the entire US government.

4. Unlike Top Secret SCI which is maintained in highly secure Sensitive Compartmented Information Facilitates (SCIF’s) managed by specially trained Special Security Officers (SSO’s) at various levels of command, every single SAP is managed by an individually designated Program Manager for each individual SAP covering an entire theater of operations. In other words, SAP Program Managers are far fewer in number than there is SSO’s. SSO’s are not cleared to even know about SAP’s or to maintain information about them in their already enormously secure SCIF’s. How SAP’s are secured cannot be discussed because of the sensitive beyond Top Secret nature in which it is done.

5. Unlike individuals with the highest Top Secret SCI access security clearances, who must undergo a special background information with periodic “bring-up” background investigation, those tiny few who have access to SAP’s must also endure periodic polygraph tests in addition to the most comprehensive of special background investigations. I used to have to schedule four-star generals and admirals to be polygraphed in order for them to maintain their access to my SAP. Many generals and admirals who obviously have the highest security clearances still did not rate being indoctrinated into my SAP. In fact, they didn’t even know the SAP existed.

6. Compromise of a SAP is the single most dangerous security violation that can ever happen to the USA. Even the enormously damaging revelations of the Edward Snowden’s TOP Secret SCI security compromise does not reach the level of a SAP compromise.

7. To put SAP information in to an unsecure sever like Hillary Clinton’s unsecure server is a class one felony that could, in some cases, result in life in prison. That is because such a compromise is so dangerous that it could and likely will result in the death of people protected by and within the scope of the SAP.

As a former SAP Program Manager I believe it is inconceivable that if it is verified that Hillary Clinton’s server actually had SAP information on it that she could possibly escape indictment and criminal prosecution. As hard as it is to imagine, that would even be worse then electing to not prosecute a mass murdering serial killer because even they could not inflict as much damage on our country as the compromise of a SAP. Compromise of a SAP not only could — but without doubt would — cause serious damage to our national security.

If it is true that Hillary Clinton had SAP information on her unsecure server, whether it was marked or not, you can be sure that the FBI will strongly recommend that charges be brought against Hillary Clinton and continue in an exhaustive investigation to trace back to every single person that had even the tiniest role in this unbelievable security compromise.

If the Attorney General, through “prosecutorial discretion,” elected not to prosecute this crime, I believe congress would have no alternative but to impeach her, and the FBI would then have no choice but to conduct a criminal investigation of her for a deliberate cover up –- so grave is this security violation.

If President Obama were to pardon Hillary Clinton for a compromise of this magnitude he would render himself in the historical record as an “enemy of the state,” and could himself face criminal prosecution –- so grave is such a security compromise. Nobody, not even the POTUS could gets away with something like this in our system of government. If anyone could escape persecution for compromising a SAP, we are deep trouble as a nation. No president who loves this country and is true to his oath would ever allow anyone, not even his or her closest and most loved relative, to get away with a SAP compromise. It is simply unimaginable that this could ever happen.

If the ongoing investigation finds that Hillary Clinton compromised a SAP, then we all should know with certainty, regardless of political persuasion, that she is entirely unfit to hold public office of any kind let alone President of the USA — and ALL Americans should never tolerate it. Compromising a SAP is an absolute “disqualifier” for public office and access to our nations most sensitive information – period.


Singapore Terrorist Extradited to America

Singapore Terrorist Lim Yong Nam Facing Justice in America

Singapore Terrorist Lim Yong Nam Facing Justice in America

Singaporean terrorist, Lim Yong Nam (a.k.a. Lin Rongnan, Steven Lim and Yong Nam Lim) is finally in United States custody after Indonesian police handed him over to the U.S. counterparts in Jakarta on March 31st.

Lim, who faces charges for breaching an American trade embargo against Iran, was sent to Jakarta from Batam island, where he had been held while the U.S. extradition request was being reviewed by Indonesia.

Indonesia has no formal extradition agreement with the US, but Indonesian law allows for such requests to be considered on a case- by-case basis. A Batam district court granted the request last year.

Indonesian President, Joko Widodo, endorsed the court’s ruling in January.

Singapore lawyer Boy Kanu, who represented Lim in Batam, said his client had tried to appeal to be sent to Singapore instead.

Singapore’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) said on March 31st it has contacted the relevant US authorities to ask for information on the legal process that Lim will face in the US. “We have also requested the US to ensure that Mr. Lim is accorded his due legal rights. MFA will continue to discharge our consular responsibilities by providing Mr. Lim with the necessary assistance,” an MFA spokesman said in a harshly critical statement. It appears that the MFA is sympathetic to the terrorist.

Lim is accused of acquiring 6,000 radio frequency modules, improvised explosive device (IED) triggers, for export to Iran. The U.S. had asked Singapore to extradite him in 2011, but Singapore High Court Judge, sympathetic Choo Han Teck, found that the crime he was accused of was not an offence in the Republic. Really?

Lim had been held in Batam since October 2014 after he went to the island supposedly to attend a “trade exhibition.”

In 2011, Lim was indicted along with three other Singaporeans and an Iranian national by the U.S. Department of Justice for conspiring to allow electronics components from the US to be exported illegally to Iran instead of their stated final destination, which was Singapore.

Normally, shipments of U.S. arms via Singapore to Iran are illegal. The arms trade passing through Singapore is made possible by bribing Singapore officials for the issuance of false Singapore End-User Certificates.

The parties in an honest arms deal will file an End-User Certificate, noting what is being sold, who is selling it and to whom it is being sold. There is an understanding that the receiving party does not intend to transfer the weapons to a third country. For arms you need a valid End-User Certificate to obtain an export license from the U.S.

The arms traffickers had to have the cooperation of the Singapore officials to issue a false End-User Certificate to re-export the IED devices to Iran.

In Singapore an End-User Certificate is issued by the Trade Control Branch under the Director-General of Singapore Customs. Mr. Fong Yong Kian.

Apparently, Singapore is very active in the illegal arms trade. First Balldev Naidu, and now this.

The US alleged that 16 of the modules were found later in improvised explosive devices in Iraq that had not been detonated. The remainder of the 6,000 IED triggers most likely killed many people in Iraq, including Americans.

12/20/2016 Update:

In Washington, D.C., Lim Yong Nam, aka Steven Lim, 42, a citizen of Singapore, pleaded guilty today to a federal charge stemming from his role in a conspiracy that allegedly caused thousands of radio frequency modules to be illegally exported from the U.S. to Iran. At least 16 of the components were later found in unexploded improvised explosive devices (IEDs) in Iraq. Lim now faces sentencing. Justice takes its course…

4/28/2017 Update: Singaporean convicted — Many agencies zoomed in on Lim Yong Nam

Lim Yong Nam, aka Steven Lim, 43, a citizen of Singapore, was sentenced today to 40 months in prison for his role in a conspiracy that caused thousands of radio frequency modules to be illegally exported from the U.S. to Iran, at least 14 of which were later found in unexploded improvised explosive devices (IEDs) in Iraq.

The investigation of Lim Yong Nam was jointly conducted by ICE Homeland Security Investigations special agents in Boston and Los Angeles; FBI agents in Minneapolis; and Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security agents in Chicago and Boston, the US Justice Department revealed.

Substantial assistance was provided by the U.S. Department of Defense, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the State Department’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls, the Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control, and the Office of International Affairs in the Justice Department’s Criminal Division, particularly the Justice Department Attaché in the Philippines, as well as the FBI and HSI Attachés in Singapore and Jakarta.

U.S. law enforcement authorities thanked the governments of Singapore and Indonesia for the substantial assistance that was provided in the investigation of this matter.
The prosecution was handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney Ari Redbord of the District of Columbia and Trial Attorney Julie Edelstein of the National Security Division’s Counterintelligence and Export Control Section.

 

 


Radical Islamic Muslims in Belgium and Europe

Muslims account for up to 8% of the Belgian population, and a whopping 25% in Brussels. Sunnis make up 98% of the Muslims in Belgium with a significant Wahhabi element with links to Saudi/ISIS radical Islam.

In the Sixties, hundreds of thousands of Moroccans and Turks came to the country as guest workers, many of whom are now unemployed and radicalized.

Mohammed has become most popular first name in both Brussels and Antwerp.

The Brussels terror network was spread across the poor ghetto neighborhoods of Molenbeek, Schaerbeek, and Laeken, where many of Salah Abdeslam’s accomplices grew up.

Recently, two Muslim politicians, Lhoucine Aït Jeddig and Redouane Ahrouch, vowed to implement radical Islamic Sharia law in Belgium.

Finally, Belgium has turned on immigrants in the wake of the Brussels terror attack as far-right groups are experiencing a massive surge in popularity.

Voorpost, a Belgian right wing organization says its membership has rocketed following the attacks in Brussels.

“A huge number of people have started supporting us online. We have had more than double the number of new members in the last three days,” Bart Vanpachtenbeke, the leader of the Voorpost has said.

“There is anger in Brussels now. I think there are dark times coming. We can’t give any information, but we are planning a lot of new protests. There is a lot of drastic action coming.”

Tom Van Grieken, leader of the anti-Islam Vlaams Belang party – Belgian equivalent of France’s Front National – reported that his party’s Facebook page gained 10,000 new likes overnight.

Finally, there is a real risk of violence against Muslims coming from Belgium’s right wing organizations.

 

The country’s inept Interior Minister, Jan Jambon, and Justice Minister, Koen Geens, have offered to resign over mistakes in investigations into the terror cells. The incompetent Belgium government has rejected their resignations.

Both men remain in their jobs, sparking not only public outrage but leading to increased attacks in Belgium and Europe by radical Islamists.

There are an estimated 6,000 radical Islamist ISIS “soldiers” in Europe thanks to Europe’s welcoming of over a million Syrian refuges into European countries.

President Obama plans to allow 70,000 Syrian refugees into the United States, initially putting them on welfare.

FBI Investigation Expands to Clinton Foundation Corruption

HillarySick

Hillary Clinton – too big to jail?

Now, we know pretty well why Hillary Clinton had her State Department email server tucked away in her house.

The FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of private email as secretary of state has expanded to look at whether the possible “intersection” of Clinton Foundation work and State Department business may have violated public corruption laws, three intelligence sources not authorized to speak on the record told Fox News.

In plain English, the Clinton Foundation has served as a conduit for bribes. This may be why Hillary refuses to utter the works “radical Islam.” The Saudis have a lot of money which they can use to silence people – and that may include Obama, himself, as he also refuses to utter the words “radical Islam.” However, in the case of Obama, this might be due to his apparent favoring of Islam.

This new investigative track is in addition to the focus on classified material found on Clinton’s personal server.

The agents are investigating possible bribes to the Clinton Foundation, according to our source.

 

Clinton, has pushed back on the details of a second investigative track, saying she has heard nothing from the FBI.

Note, however, that the FBI does not have to notify the subject of an investigation.

The development follows press reports over the past year about the potential overlap of State Department and Clinton Foundation work, and questions over whether donors benefited from their contacts inside the administration thanks to bribes to the Clintons and/or their foundation..

The Clinton Foundation is a public charity, known as a 501(c)(3). It had grants and contributions in excess of $144 million in 2013, the most current available data. The Clinton Foundation is now worth $1 billion. The Clintons, themselves, are worth another billion—bringing their grand total to $2 billion.

The FBI is particularly concerned after howthe case of former CIA Director David Petraeus was handled.

Petraeus was given only a slap on the wrist for sharing highly classified information with his mistress and biographer Paula Broadwell, as well as lying to FBI agents about his actions. Petraeus pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor in March 2015 after a two-plus-year federal investigation in which Attorney General Eric Holder initially declined to prosecute. Now, with Loreta Lynch as the Attorney General, the Clintons might also be “excused.”

By contrast, in the Clinton case, the number of classified emails has risen to at least 1,340. It is unclear which of the two lines of inquiry was opened first by the FBI and whether they eventually will be combined and presented before a special grand jury. One intelligence source said the public corruption angle dates back to at least April 2015. On their official website, the FBI lists “public corruption as the FBI’s top criminal priority.”

About 100 special agents assigned to the Clinton investigations were asked to sign non-disclosure agreement.

The only reason Hillary is still an active candidate is due to the lack of main stream media coverage, which continues to allow her to cast this as yet another “vast right wing conspiracy”, along with a liberal State Dept. which has made a mockery of the Constitution.

It looks like Hillary Clinton is “too big to jail.”
