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.
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.]]>

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.
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).

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.

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.

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.
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.
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…
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.]]>
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.”]]>
Is George Romney Behind the Chicago Riot Against Trump? It is beginning to look that way. Stuart Stevens, former Romney senior adviser, on CNN called out Trump for running a George Wallace campaign to win over angry whites. Back on November 19, Stevens said he didn’t think GOP front-runner Donald Trump would be around as a candidate on the night of the Iowa caucuses. Does that mean he is hinting that, somehow, Trump will be “eliminated” or assassinated?
The Chicago riot gang consisted of an estimated 10,000 people, carrying banners and other items that had to cost a good deal of money. They were also well organized, which indicates that there was money behind them – the kind of money that only people like Romney has.
How desperate can Romney be to get the Republican nomination for president. How low can his man, Stuart Stevens, be to insinuate that the riot is Trump’s fault. Let’s hope that people like Stevens are caught and prosecuted for inciting public disorder and riots with their false allegations.
In addition to working to get Romney nominated a second time, Stevens has a long-time score to settle with Trump, because, in August 2013, Trump advised Christie not to use Stevens.
Trump slammed the Stevens for Mitt Romney’s 2012 campaign back then and warned Chris Christie against working with him. “I don’t know Stuart Stevens from a hole in the wall. I don’t know what he looks like. But I will say this, whoever ran that campaign, that is not the person I would want running my campaign if I were running,” Trump told Greta Van Susteren on Fox News.
In a statement, White House press secretary Josh Earnest described the upcoming meeting as “informal.” “The two will meet privately in the Oval Office and there will be no formal agenda.”
Our sources indicate that, at the meeting, Obama will inform Sanders that Hillary Clinton is to be indicted by the FBI.
Obama’s reason of “permitting” the indictment of Hillary Clinton may to distance himself for her in matters related to the Benghazi attack.
Obama does not want to be linked to Hillary Clinton as the Benghazi attack was staged by a State Department hired jihadist security outfit in connection with and as a cover-up for the transfer of Libya’s vast arms cache to al-Qaeda and ISIS mercenaries in Syria and Iraq.
