Was Vegas an FBI Sting Gone Bad?

By: Cliff Kincaid

Why is there no motive for the Vegas massacre? Why did Stephen Paddock have a secret life?

It is terrible to contemplate, but the possibility that Stephen Paddock was an undercover federal operative or informant cannot be ruled out. He may have been either set up or used by ISIS and/or a federal agency in a scheme that backfired.

The feds may have thought they were going to catch ISIS in the act of preparing a major terrorist attack. ISIS terrorists may have thought Paddock was one of them but realized at the last minute that it was a set-up. So they claimed him as one of their own.

Perhaps he did convert to Islam after trying to get local Jihadists to buy his weapons.  Or perhaps they thought he did, and he used his “conversion” to convince them he was one of them.

In short, Paddock may have approached potential terrorists with offers of weapons and bomb-making material. Or they may have approached him.

Those of us who have been around Washington D.C. for a while know that the FBI has been rocked by scandals of all kinds and a series of failures, ranging from Ruby Ridge to Waco to 9/11. Because these scandals involve death, stonewalling, and cover-up, the agencies cannot be trusted to investigate themselves.

For someone with even elementary knowledge of government incompetence and corruption, it doesn’t take a lot of imagination to consider the possibility that Paddock was a government informant or operative in a scheme that backfired.

We can anticipate there will be obligatory denials.

Reports indicate that the materials found in Paddock’s car included 1,600 rounds of ammunition, fertilizer that could be used to make explosives and 50 pounds of the explosive substance Tannerite. He had 23 weapons in the hotel room and had reportedly bought 33 guns in the past year. This guy was the perfect operative to be used in undercover stings. He had everything they needed to carry out major terrorist acts.

Paddock was a one stop shop for terrorists. He had the guns and the bombs. He was a one-man Weather Underground.

WND reporter Leo Hohmann reports that Paddock “not only worked directly for the [federal] government for nearly a decade but then worked another year-and-a-half for federal weapons contractor Lockheed Martin.” What this means is that he would have been known to the feds and could have been recruited by them. He could have been told he could atone for his bank-robbing father.

Perhaps he was a “lone wolf” who somehow “snapped.” But his arsenal, designed for a small terrorist army, and his “secret life,” have led to speculation Paddock was part of a gun-running and bomb-making operation similar to the federal Fast and Furious scandal in the Obama Administration. In this case, however, the targets were Islamists, not Mexican drug traffickers.

The Fast and Furious scandal involved the U.S. sending weapons to Mexico that were used by drug cartels to murder a federal border agent, Brian Terry. What if Paddock was part of another such operation, launched under former President Obama, to entrap alleged terrorists? President Trump’s new FBI director, Christopher Wray, has only been on the job for about two months, and may not have been able to review or stop it.

If the FBI had been able to stop the massacre, breaking into the hotel room at the last moment before the carnage, the Bureau would have looked like heroes in the eyes of the public. It would have managed to achieve some good publicity after the debacles involving Director James Comey, the Hillary email scandal, and Russia-gate.

But something went dramatically wrong. Either way, if he was an operative or not, he was able to assemble a small arsenal of weapons in a hotel room. Didn’t anybody notice? Or was he being protected by authorities who thought they were going to nab members of a terrorist cell?

All the facts are not in, but we know that one analysis of FBI undercover “sting” operations found they are now used in two of every three prosecutions involving people suspected of supporting ISIS, the Islamic State. The New York Times said, “…agents have helped people suspected of being extremists acquire weapons, scope out bombing targets and find the best routes to Syria to join the Islamic State, records show.”

You can see how dangerous this can be. These operations involve federal agents actually participating in the planning of terrorist acts and acquiring weapons.

What if Paddock, under government orders, set up his machine gun nest in the Mandalay Bay, hoping to entice some ISIS terrorists into the room and “catch them in the act.” Perhaps he thought the feds would burst in at any moment to stop it. Perhaps he had converted to the Islamist cause. In any case, in assembling this arsenal, he could easily have worked with others to make it all happen.  Who were those others? That’s the big question.

One theory, therefore, is that the FBI blew it. They didn’t get there in time.

His recruitment by the FBI or another federal agency would have been a closely-guarded secret. His family and girlfriend would not have known about it. They would claim ignorance of his “secret life.”

These are difficult matters to consider. Perhaps that is why the White House is pandering to the “gun control” crowd with talk of banning so-called “bump stocks” for semi-automatics. This is how Washington avoids the topic of corruption in federal agencies. This will become a “bipartisan” feel-good moment.

We don’t have all of the pieces of the puzzle and, if something like this did happen, there will be great resistance to knowing and understanding the facts. But the involvement of the FBI and other federal agencies in the ongoing “investigation” means that they will take command and control and be in a position to engineer a cover-up regarding any ties Paddock may have had with them. This is how the Swamp works.

They will leave the puzzle in scattered pieces, to be assembled by courageous journalists and political leaders independent of the Swamp. That is, if there are any left.

Leftists Despicably Use Vegas Massacre For Agenda

By: Lloyd Marcus

It has always bugged me how fake news media helps Leftists portray themselves morally superior, more caring and compassionate than the rest of us. The dirty little secret is Leftists are cold and calculating only caring about implementing their socialist/progressive, anti-God and anti-American agenda. In plain words, Leftists do not give a rat’s derriere about who gets hurt or dies as long as it helps their mission to transform America. Leftists’ ultimate goal is to get rid of the Constitution, giving government power to control every aspect of our lives, dictating how we are allowed to behave. Thus, you can understand why Leftists seize every opportunity to move the ball towards their goal.

Here are just a few examples of Leftists saying screw the truth, logic, facts and negative effects on peoples’ lives. Leftists’ are laser-focused, using every weather catastrophe, accident, tragedy and political issue to further their agenda.

The Vegas Massacre:

Despicably, Leftists immediately exploited the Vegas massacre to further their mission to disarm law abiding citizens, undermining our 2nd Amendment right. What part of criminals-do-not-obey-gun-laws do Leftists not understand?

The shooter, Steven Paddock, broke every gun law. Therefore, tougher gun laws would not have stopped him. Cities with the toughest gun laws have the highest murder rates. Crime is lower in states where citizens are packin’. http://bit.ly/2xSY7Mb It has always puzzled me why Leftist feminists are so anti-gun. If my wife is approached by a mugger in a dark parking lot, I want her armed with a gun, the perfect equalizer.

Outrageously, Leftists inferred that the murdered country music fans at the Vegas concert deserved to die because they were probably gun owners and Trump supporters. http://bit.ly/2xbk7Qs Imagine the 24/7 media firestorm Leftists would launch had a conservative made a similar comment about murdered hip-hop concert goers and Obama supporters. Clearly, Leftists/fake news media believe the lives of people who disagree with them do not matter.

The Homosexual Night Club Massacre in Orlando:

Leftists exploited the night club massacre to further their homosexual agenda. The shooter had ties to Islam. Insidiously, Leftists attacked Christians and gun owners, blaming them for the deaths. Leftists said everyone who opposes homosexual marriage is responsible for the massacre. Leftists said everyone who is against men using girl’s restrooms is complicit in the mass murder. Leftists’ massage was you had better embrace the rainbow symbol or we will brand you a rabid hater who supports murdering homosexuals.

The Michael Brown “Hands Up Don’t Shoot” Lie:

This lie by far is Leftists’ most satanically evil attack on human lives; our brave men and women in blue. http://washex.am/2yXvIEU Evidence confirmed and the grand jury concluded that Brown was shot while reaching inside the police car attempting to take the officer’s gun. Brown’s blood was found inside the police car. http://bit.ly/2xUCoTU Brown was not shot while surrendering with his hands up. And yet, this lie which has led to police being ambushed and assassinated across America continues to be promoted by Leftists.

I could not believe my eyes watching the Grammy Awards feature a huge musical production number based on the “hands up don’t shot” lie. The Leftist producers of the awards TV show intentional infected millions of black youth’s minds with vitcimhood-ism and hatred for America’s police. Why? To further Leftists’ goal of the federal government taking control of every state’s police department.

Issues Plaguing Black America:

With blacks murdering each other in record numbers in urban cities controlled by democrats, why are Leftists outraged whenever anyone sincerely addresses this issue? http://fxn.ws/2iVMOhJ Black lives only matter to Leftists in the furtherance of their agenda. Blacks are aborting themselves into extinction. Orchestrating America’s black genocide is Leftists’ Planned Parenthood which targets black babies. http://washex.am/1iHbDJt Leftists want as many babies aborted as possible to “save the planet.” Leftists attack any talk of blacks pulling themselves up by their boot straps. They need blacks suffering, viewing themselves as victims of an eternally racist America.

Democrat policies destroyed the black family which is the source of the problems plaguing black communities. http://bit.ly/1TLhZWa And yet, Leftists have conned blacks into believing their only shield against racism is loyally voting for Democrats. Consequently, blacks are suffering more in urban cities than they were when I lived in the Baltimore projects 50 years ago. Black seniors terrorized by thugs are locking themselves in their homes. Far too many black youths are having babies out-of-wedlock, dropping out of school and murdering each other.

Leftists seek to destroy self-reliant extremely successful blacks because they want to keep blacks dependent on government. Isn’t it strange that Leftists hate black Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, black businessman extraordinaire Herman Cain and black retired neurosurgeon Dr Ben Carson?

The blacks I named undermine Leftists’ lie that blacks cannot succeed without lowered standards, special concessions and government intervention. Justice Thomas, Cain and Dr Carson achieved success competing with whites as equals. These blacks achieved success the old-fashion way. They earned it. Do Leftists really care about black lives? Absolutely not.

Leftists view everything and everyone through a lens of exploitation to further their agenda.

It was easily predictable that Hillary would exploit the Vegas massacre to further Leftists’ gun grab. She politicized the massacre while cautioning gun owners not to politicize the massacre. Using her evil forked tongue, Hillary demanded more gun controls, ignoring the fact that no gun law would have stopped the shooter. In typical Leftist fashion, Hillary played on peoples’ emotions to overrule the Constitution to end American’s right to bear arms. Thank God this despicable Leftist zealot is not our president.

This is how Leftists roll folks. This is how they roll.

No Susan Rice, Nikki Haley does not want to kill gay people

By: Renee Nal | New Zeal

Former UN Ambassador Susan Rice re-tweeted a cherry-picked smear piece from the hyper-partisan Soros-funded ThinkProgress (a project of the “Center for American Progress Action Fund) that claims America endorses laws straight out the Hadith that condemn gay people to death in an “article” titled: “United States rejects UN resolution condemning use of death penalty to target LGBTQ people.”

As an aside, according to Islamqa.info:

“The Sahaabah [companions of Prophet Muhammad] were unanimously agreed on the execution of homosexuals, but they differed as to how they were to be executed…” (More below)

Perhaps there should be a United Nations resolution denouncing the Sahaabah.

The reason for the U.S. rejection of the resolution, of course, is because the resolution calls for a complete ban on the use of the death penalty, not just for the execution of homosexuals. The United Nation’s position on the death penalty is no secret.

Here is a screen shot from the results of a Google news search, providing an illustration of why Americans really need to audit the news:

The United States rejected a similar resolution in 2014 under Obama. For some reason, the official explanation from that time is no longer available online, but it is captured at the Wayback Machine. It reads in part:

“There is wide divergence of views – both within and among nations –on the abolition of, or a moratorium on, the continued use of the death penalty. While we appreciate that this resolution sets forth policy objectives shared by advocates of an abolition of this form of punishment, we believe that the ultimate decision regarding these issues must be addressed through the domestic democratic processes of individual Member States and be consistent with their obligations under international law.”

The explanation further urges all countries to “…ensure that capital punishment is not applied in an extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary manner.”

ThinkProgress failed to publish the official statement on the resolution, which reads in part:

“The United States is disappointed that it must vote against this resolution.  As in previous years, we had hoped for a balanced and inclusive resolution that would better reflect the position of states that continue to apply the death penalty lawfully.  We reaffirm our longstanding position on the legality of the death penalty, when imposed and carried out in a manner consistent with a state’s international obligations.”

Susan “Benghazi was over a YouTube video” Rice tweeted:

The pedophile-founded Human Rights Campaign predictably lamented that “…the Trump/Pence administration failed to show leadership on the world stage by not championing this critical measure. This administration’s blatant disregard for human rights and LGBTQ lives around the world is beyond disgraceful.”

Here is the post from ThinkProgress Editor and founder Judd Legum:

The Washington Examiner reported that State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert criticized “‘misleading’ media coverage that implied the U.S. side voted specifically against such theocratic death penalty laws. She also emphasized that a narrower ban would have won U.S. support.” She continued:

“We voted against that resolution because of broader concerns about the resolution’s approach to condemning the death penalty in all circumstances; and, it called for the abolition of the death penalty altogether,” Nauert said. “We had hoped for a balanced and inclusive resolution that would better reflect the positions of states that continue to apply the death penalty lawfully, as the United States does.”

Here is a tweet from the State Department:

Here are two sources on Islam’s view of punishment for homosexuals:

From Islamonline.net:

“As to the issue of how the homosexual person is judged in an Islamic State, the Companions of Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessing be upon him differed among themselves on this issue, and this led to different views maintained by Muslim Jurists. For example, in the Hanafi school of thought, the homosexual is punished through harsh beating, and if he/she repeats the act, death penalty is to be applied. As for the Shafi`i school of thought, the homosexual receives the same punishment of adultery (if he/she is married) or fornication (if not married). This means, that if the homosexual is married, he/she is stoned to death, while if single, he/she is whipped 100 times. Hence, the Shafi`i compares the punishment applied in the case of homosexuality with that of adultery and fornication, while the Hanafi differentiates between the two acts because in homosexuality, the anus (a place of impurity) may also be involved while in adultery (and fornication), the penis/vagina (which are reproductive parts) are involved. Some scholars hold the opinion that the homosexual should be thrown from a high building as a punishment for his crime, but other scholars maintain that he should be imprisoned until death.”

Or this, from Islamqa.info:

“The Sahaabah [companions of Prophet Muhammad] were unanimously agreed on the execution of homosexuals, but they differed as to how they were to be executed. Some of them were of the view that they should be burned with fire, which was the view of ‘Ali (may Allaah be pleased with him) and also of Abu Bakr (may Allaah be pleased with him), as we shall see below. And some of them thought that they should be thrown down from a high place then have stones thrown at them. This was the view of Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allaah be pleased with him). “

It is clear that ThinkProgress and Susan Rice are counting on their followers to take their lies at face value.

Irma, Maria and Corruption: Puerto Rico

By: Denise Simon | Political Vanguard

Irma, Maria and Corruption are a trifecta of issues for the island nation.

Over the years, Puerto Rico has voted for independence. It is a vote meant to set the stage for Pueto Rico to become the 51st state of the United States. It just won’t happen due to countless underlying issues.

Sadly, many civilians are suffering this very moment in Puerto Rico due to two catastrophic hurricanes. They have not only destroyed homes, they virtually destroyed Puerto Rico’s infrastructure as well. Even before the hurricanes, however, the tiny island was on life support.

Take electricity for example. No region can exist much less thrive without a stable and reliable power source. Puerto Rico has a long history of a failed power grid. As the LA Times noted, with little notice by Democrat members of Congress:

Hurricane Georges in 1998 left the island without power for three weeks. The tropical storm destroyed 30,000 houses and damaged at least another 60,000.

Last year, the island suffered a massive blackout after a fire broke out at one of the island’s main electricity plants, leaving half of the territory’s residents in the dark.

PREPA at the time said two transmission lines had failed.

While natural disasters have underscored the problems of the island’s electrical system, over the past few years the island’s and the power company’s money problems made the power grid particularly susceptible to crippling damage by storms.

As of 2014 the government-owned company was $9 billion in debt, and in July, it filed for bankruptcy under the provisions set by the Puerto Rico Oversight, Management, and Economic Stability Act, a law signed by President Obama in 2016.

Making matters worse, consider the FBI and cyber experts’ investigation regarding the power condition.

Sometime in 2009, an electric utility in Puerto Rico asked the FBI to help it investigate widespread incidents of power thefts that it believed was related to its smart meter deployment. In May 2010, the bureau distributed an intelligence alert about its findings to select industry personnel and law enforcement officials.

Citing confidential sources, the FBI said it believes former employees of the meter manufacturer and employees of the utility were altering the meters in exchange for cash and training others to do so. “These individuals are charging $300 to $1,000 to reprogram residential meters, and about $3,000 to reprogram commercial meters,” the alert states.

The FBI believes that miscreants hacked into the smart meters using an optical converter device — such as an infrared light — connected to a laptop that allows the smart meter to communicate with the computer. After making that connection, the thieves changed the settings for recording power consumption using software that can be downloaded from the Internet.

Then comes working with Puerto Rican government officials. That too is a challenge due to corruption. The NY Post offered in part this item:

Jorge Rodriguez, 49, is the Harvard-educated CEO of PACIV, an international engineering firm based in Puerto Rico that works with the medical and pharmaceutical sectors. The Puerto Rican-born engineer says he has dispatched 50 engineers to help FEMA rehabilitate the devastated island — a commonwealth of the United States — after Hurricane Maria. He refuses to work with the local government, which he called inept and riddled with corruption.

If a lack of electricity isn’t problem enough, there is the clean water issue. You know – the staff of life.

Ever wonder how an island nation does not have a desalination and water treatment system?  Singapore has become a world economic leader in part because it has embraced desalination.

The sophistication and technology is widely available for production of up to 50 million gallons per day. The high cost is always associated with the environmentalists who scream about algae, fish, marine life and other possible destructive consequences, but you can bet if there is no water, their voices run silent. Going back as far as 1998, Princeton University published a white paper explaining the benefits, costs and reliability of this technology.

What about law enforcement?

Glad you asked. Due to corruption and fraud within the ranks of law enforcement in Puerto Rico, James Tuller Cintrón was chosen as superintendent of the Puerto Rico Police Department. Cintron came from the NYPD.

There are 18,000-members in the PRPD. Under the Obama administration, the Justice Department pledged in July $10 million to the Puerto Rican government to combat police corruption, extrajudicial killings and civil rights violations. The deal was the culmination of two years of tense negotiations that focused on reforming the territory’s plagued law enforcement agency.

The cash infusion followed a DOJ report, released in September 2011, which found evidence that the Puerto Rico Police Department (PRPD) violated the Constitution and federal laws by using excess and unreasonable force, making unconstitutional stops, searches and arrests, and targeting individuals of Dominican descent, among other problems.

In 2017, seven people including some government officials were arrested for stealing $10 million in government funds mostly from the education division.

In 2010, the FBI launched a sting called Operation Guard Shack. 750 FBI undercover personnel were flown to Puerto Rico as part of this sting and it resulted in 89 law enforcement officers and 44 other people being arrested and indicted as part of a two-year undercover investigation into 125 drug transactions. Puerto Rico is a major shipping point for drugs between the East Coast and such South American countries as Colombia and Peru.

Now, of course, the American Media is focused on the President’s response to the latest two hurricanes. The biggest critic of the mainland response to the hurricane devastation has been Carmen Cruz. She is the mayor of San Juan.

So, where is she when it comes to FEMA coordination, conference calls and following all disaster planning? Incredibly, the answer is absolutely nowhere. Other mayors from the island participate and collaborate with FEMA, the military and the Red Cross, but lil miss Cruz seems to be notably absent. She literally has failed to attend the meetings. She has, however, found time to appear on televisions to complain.

For all the fears due to catastrophic disasters, including lack of communications, lack of power due to power grid destruction and fleeting supplies of water, there are major opportunities that have been overlooked and not exploited in Puerto Rico.  Now is an excellent opportunity to use the island as an incubation center for clever and resourceful solutions that include alternate forms of power including wind and solar.

Surely after all those taxpayer loan guarantees by the Obama administration for solar companies, there are some panels and battery systems sitting available. When it comes to communications, surely there are some U.S. naval ships that are out of commission and dry-docked that could have or should be converted to communications centers, floating hospitals and even housing for the most vulnerable.

As a result of hurricane Harvey, Irma and Maria in 2017 and the lessons learned from hurricane Katrina, there are many regions of the United States that still need to be innovative, clever and insightful when it comes to disaster recovery and the responsibility does not always fall exclusively with FEMA. Individual preparedness is not only useful but required.

Taking corruption and fraud out of the mix remains however the most daunting challenge of all.

Michiganistan – The Sharia Crime Canary

Michigan is evidence that Islamic immigration leads to more than unassimilated communities – it leads to the normalization of Sharia-proscribed behavior that is criminal like FGM and honor killing.

The entire country can learn a lesson – Michigan Audio Report.

How can local law enforcement avoid the pitfalls of pursuing those lawfully practicing Islam, while aggressively prosecuting those Shariah-adherents engaged in criminal activity like no-fault rape and deadly terrorist attacks?

Law-abiding citizens are now beginning to realize that local law enforcement desperately need to acquire previously-unavailable Sharia training. That is why communities are partnering with Sharia Crime Stoppers in their mission to provide under-the-radar certified Sharia training directly to local law enforcement, thereby preparing them to better protect themselves and the citizens they have sworn to safeguard.

Sharia Crime Stoppers Video

Sharia Crime Stoppers can be contacted at [email protected] for more information on under-the-radar certified law enforcement training provided at no cost except for travel expenses.

Al-Azhar Deep State Strikes At Egypt’s Constitutional Free Speech

By: Dr. Ashraf Ramelah | Voice of the Copts

In June this year, Justices Alito and Kennedy of the U.S. Supreme Court agreed in their separate opinions for Matal v. Tam that there is no “hate speech” exception to the first amendment of the constitution. In other words, “hate speech” is free speech. In that same month, Egypt’s parliament found a new hate speech bill placed before them for review. It is likely Egypt’s legislators will not take their lead from the United States but follow the footsteps of Germany, United Kingdom, The Netherlands, France and Denmark, to turn the bill entitled, “Combating Hatred and Violence” into law. The vote is scheduled to take place in the near future.

However, before any vote takes place, the Egyptian parliamentarians must address the origin (the writers) of the introduced bill. The bill — which has 16 articles in three sections — was not written by any member of the elected body but by an outside entity. Committing an unconstitutional and illegal action, the Al-Azhar Institute wrote and submitted to parliament the proposed “hatred” bill. Egypt’s parliament is currently aiding and abetting the illegality by considering the proposed bill. Next, they will buckle under the same pressure to rubber stamp it. Just watch.

To be clear, Al- Azhar Institute has no representation, honorary or otherwise, in the Egyptian parliament. This was enumerated a long time ago when Nasser allowed the Islamic religious institute to expand its teachings to the university level in science and technology. And before doing so, Nasser established Law No. 103 in 1961. Still current, Law No. 103 restricts Al- Azhar Institute’s role to a religious/cultural one (meaning not political) and defines it as “the renewal of Islamic culture, removing abstractions and impurities from it.”

A hate speech law crafted by Al- Azhar may, in its own view, be very effective in “renewing” Islamic culture for, rest assured, it will favor Islam above the others. The language of the drafted bill is generic and abstract with the intent to exact that favor. Vagueness is subject to interpretation by those in charge. For example, the proposed bill states it is, “Protecting the community from attempts to indoctrinate false concepts that may emerge among its members and affect the facts of their religion in a manner that incites hatred.” “Community” is not defined, and this makes non-Muslim segments jittery. Are the indoctrinated “false concepts” affecting the “facts of their religion” pertaining to truths spoken about Islam and Sharia? — Probably.

At a time when Al- Azhar Islamists are under much criticism, the ambiguity of the bill, if passed, will muzzle thinkers and intellectuals and stifle expression more so than now. With this maneuver, Al- Azhar ar shows that its aim is to govern behavior and gain more power over personal lives.

Nothing short of a move to reverse Egypt’s constitution regarding free speech, Article 4 of Al- Azhar’s “Combating Hatred and Violence” bill incorporates an end to any opposition to the proposed bill once made into law and, in this case gets very specific: “It’s not permitted to invoke freedom of opinion and expression, criticism, freedom of information, publication or creativity against any statement or action involving anything contrary to the provisions of this law.” To the contrary, Article 65 of the current 2014 Constitution states that “Freedom of opinion is guaranteed and everyone has the right to express his or her opinion by speech, writing, photography or other means of expression and publication.” The two are at odds.

A thousand years old, Al- Azhar has an institutional memory of the freedoms’ and rights’ environment for centuries in Egypt prior to Nasser’s decision to nationalize personal property and pour the proceeds into the coffers of Al-Ahzar. Tipping the scales in this way set up society for the battle against freedoms and human rights. In response to the negative popular reaction in May 1879 to the emerging abuses of political and religious powers, Egypt’s 1923 Constitution came about 45 years later. It stated that the Egyptian parliament is the only “legislative authority” and that no religious institution can have that same role — referring to Al- Azhar Institute and the Coptic Orthodox Pope. Although the 1923 Constitution is now expunged, this point, fortunately, carried over to the current 2014 Constitution.

With its aggressive overreach (an unsolicited and illegally proposed “hate” bill) to increase the presence of Islam throughout a diverse population (secularists, liberals, atheists, Christians of various denominations and Muslims), the Al- Azhar deep state unveiled its true intentions. Instead of reviewing its own internal policies regarding religious teachings and preaching, which would alleviate oppression in Egypt and around the world as well as pressure on the devout, it rides the trend rising in Europe to suppress free speech and ingrain 7th century doctrine.

The powerful Al- Azhar deep state is shoring up its position to hold and penetrate fundamentalism in many ways, building momentum over time. After rejecting Al-Sisi’s plea for reform of Islamic doctrine and ignoring the possibility of school textbooks revision, Al- Azhar Institute created the kiosk project to disseminate religious edits (“fatwas”). Shortly after, Al- Azhar vocalized its contempt for Tunisia’s modernization of ancient religious traditions, and most recently remained silent on the Egyptian state’s campaign against female genital mutilation (FGM). Furthermore, Al- Azhar has never condemned ISIS or any act of Muslim terrorism against Christians in or outside of Egypt.

Berkeley’s Communist Antifa Are Stalking College Republicans… Targeting With Violence And Intimidation

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Antifa is possibly strongest here in the US in Berkeley, California. Currently they are threatening and stalking the University of California – Berkeley College Republicans. Antifa considers Nazis fascist, but they also consider anyone who believes in capitalism and the Constitution as fascist. Twisted, but that’s what they believe. Antifa is now listing these Republicans by their names and locations and putting it out on social media to alert other Antifa members that they are in their vicinity. They aren’t specifically calling for violence, but it is clear they are targeting the Republican students.

On Wednesday of this week, the Berkeley Antifa Twitter account put out the private meeting place of several Berkeley College Republicans. They claimed these students had been “drinking with Kyle Chapman and Joey Gibson.” Kyle Chapman is better known as “Based Stick Man.” He is a Trump supporter who physically attacked Antifa members. He rose to fame last March after hitting an Antifa supporter in the head. Joey Gibson is the founder of Patriot Prayers. They are a pro-Trump organization that is active in California and the Pacific Northwest.

There are a lot of fake Antifa accounts out there. This isn’t one of them. It’s managed by die-hard Antifa members based in Southern California. The account has been known to call for violence against conservative, free-speech advocates and anyone they deem to be “fascists.” Intimidation and violence are the calling card of Antifa. You will see them get more and more aggressive over time just as they have in Europe. They have stalked and intimidated conservatives within and outside of the campus. That particular account has named a number of Berkeley College Republicans, including Troy Worden, Ashton Whitty, Naweed Tahmas, Matt Ronnau and Angelie Castenada.

Last August, Ashton Whitty, who is a student there, was hunted down by Antifa and cornered at a gas station. They beat on her car trying to terrorize her. Whitty was interviewed on Fox News over the incident and they showed footage of the violent encounter. She related to Campus Reform that Antifa members had stalked her. They took pictures of her and tracked down her location to attack her. “It’s rather odd why these people would see us as such a priority when we’re just everyday people,” she said.

The VP of the Berkeley College Republicans, Nahweed Tahmas, bluntly stated that conservatives at UC Berkeley are “routinely targeted, harassed and stalked” by the anarcho-communist group. “Knowing that they have sympathizers within both the city administration and university administration, leftist groups will continue to target conservatives as they know there are no consequences to their actions,” he said. “It has become socially acceptable in Berkeley to physically beat someone for being a conservative,” Tahmas added. “In fact, it is even encouraged.”

On Tuesday, prominent Antifa leader Yvonne Felarca was arrested following the group’s “Victory March” in the city. Berkeley Police later released a mugshot of the activist, noting that she was arrested for “battery and resisting arrest.” You remember this woman, she is a middle school teacher and a violent Antifa member. In fact, there seem to be quite a few teachers and professors that run with Antifa.

For an in-depth explanation of Antifa and to see just how terrifying this group really is, watch Trevor Loudon’s excellent documentary below: America Under Siege: Antifa. You will see what we are facing and who the real enemy within is.

Antifa is the third episode in the America Under Siege film series from Dangerous Documentaries (a project of the Capital Research Center) and Cohesion Films. Each episode profiles the influence of radical Marxists on various segments of American society.

The communist movement known as Antifa (short for Anti-Fascist Action) has sparked violence across the nation. In the wake of their battling despicable white supremacist in Charlottesville, Antifa has begun to gain mainstream popularity. But unbeknownst to much of the public, the vast majority of Antifa violence isn’t targeted at genuine fascists, but mainstream conservatives and civilians. With help from those who have encountered Antifa, including Milo Yiannopoulos, Gavin McInnes, Lauren Southern, Jack Posobiec, and Steve Deace, conservative author Trevor Loudon guides us through the history and ideas behind the Antifa movement, starting with Leon Trotsky and going all the way through the events in Berkeley, CA and Charlottesville, VA.

US Shuttering Diplomatic and Tourism Operations in Cuba

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Twenty-one U.S. diplomatic personnel assigned to Cuba have been severely affected by some health condition with the cause still unknown officially. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has issued travel warnings to Cuba for civilians and has ordered a large number of government personnel to leave the island. Cuba is allegedly cooperating in the investigation and for more than a year, there have been no clues or resolutions. The FBI additionally sent an expert team to Havana to investigate all associated locations including the housing where these attacks have occurred. The housing for diplomatic personnel is provided by Cuba and as with all laws and standards, the host country must provide safe conditions and be approved by the U.S. State Department.

So, what are the likely explanations for U.S. personnel and Canadian personnel suffering from hearing loss, brain damage and even speech complications?

Well, as submitted by former CIA official John Sipher, who has served in some hostile nations, there are some explanation(s) as to what those nations have in the past done to U.S. facilities.

During my time overseas, I have had personal experience with several of these “attacks.” In the 1980s and 1990s, the Soviet and then Russian intelligence services deployed doses of nitrophenyl pentaden (NPPD) against American diplomats whom they suspected of managing espionage operations against Russian interests. This so-called “spy dust” was an invisible electromagnetic powder with a customized chemical identifier. It was smeared onto door handles, furniture and cars of suspected American spy handlers. It was a tagging agent used by Russian security elements to covertly monitor their own community by revealing unreported (and potentially espionage related) contacts between Russian and American officials. It was somewhat ingenious. After deploying the invisible material on a suspected U.S. intelligence officer, Russian counter-intelligence would snoop after-hours through the offices of Russian government employees looking for traces of the material. Discovery of the powder in the office of someone who had not reported contact with the American provided significant proof of suspicious activity.

What was not ingenious, however, were the threats to human health. There were concerns at the time that the material was carcinogenic and could be harmful to American diplomats. Following studies, the United States determined there was no specific evidence of a threat to the U.S. diplomatic community since it was only used against a handful of people. As someone who was “dusted,” that explanation didn’t really make me feel much better. However, the substance was at least a step up from earlier Russian tracking devices like radioactive nails hammered into the tires of U.S. diplomatic vehicles, allowing Russian surveillance vehicles to hang back unseen and follow along by using special equipment to track targets’ tire residue.

The Russian security services were also known to flood the U.S. embassy in Moscow with electromagnetic radiation. They would beam concentrated microwaves and electronic pulses at the Embassy in an attempt to eavesdrop on U.S. typewriters and conversations. In the 1970s, a U.S. Ambassador contracted and died of a blood disease that many assumed to be a result of the attacks. The State Department detected high levels of radiation in the embassy staff, and provided hazard pay to personnel who worked in Moscow. A variety of electronic attacks continued over the years to include mobile Russian vans that acted as a giant x-ray that could be directed at diplomats all over town. In a similar fashion, high frequency devices can be used to pulse other devices, perhaps turning on or off collection devices in homes or offices.

Similarly, the Russian security services undertook a massive effort to bug the new embassy building in Moscow with all sorts of technical gear, some of which could potentially affect the health of Americans. Indeed, the new embassy construction was even abandoned in 1985 due to the sheer volume and sophistication of electronic eavesdropping equipment that was found throughout the walls, concrete floors and underground. A second attempt to improve the security of the building also faltered when the United States found an equally aggressive and sophisticated attack, which included building listening devices directly into the steel beams holding the building upright. Even the sidewalks and streets throughout the neighborhood were embedded with electronic collection gear which was designed to turn the embassy building into a giant antenna. The United States lost hundreds of millions of dollars trying to fix the problems, and eventually tore off the top several floors of the Embassy and rebuilt it with specially imported materials put together by American-only labor – an effort the U.S. called the “Top Hat” solution. The decades-long process displayed the remarkable expertise of the Russians in the use of technical sensors and surveillance gear. Russian technology was consistently underestimated by the U.S. and often our best scientists had difficulty understanding what the Russians were up to. Full article here.

Could Mr. Sipher be missing something or omitting something? Yes.

There is something called vibroacoustic syndrome — the effect of infrasonic output not on your hearing, but on the various fluid-filled parts of your body, which can affect hearing and loss of balance.

The low frequency of infrasonic sound and its corresponding long wavelength makes it much more capable of bending around or penetrating your body, creating an oscillating pressure system. Depending on the frequency, different parts of your body will resonate, which can have very unusual non-auditory effects. For example, one of the ones that occur at relatively safe sound levels (< 100 dB) occurs at 19Hz. If you sit in front of a very good-quality subwoofer and play a 19Hz sound (or have access to a sound programmer and get an audible sound to modulate at 19Hz), try taking off your glasses or removing your contacts. Your eyes will twitch. If you turn up the volume so you start approaching 110 dB, you may even start seeing colored lights at the periphery of your vision or ghostly gray regions in the center. This is because 19Hz is the resonant frequency of the human eyeball. The low-frequency pulsations start distorting the eyeball’s shape and pushing on the retina, activating the rods and cones by pressure rather than light.* This non-auditory effect may be the basis of some supernatural folklore. In 1998, Tony Lawrence and Vic Tandy wrote a paper for the Journal of the Society for Psychical Research (not my usual fare) called “Ghosts in the Machine,” in which they describe how they got to the root of stories of a “haunted” laboratory. People in the lab had described seeing “ghostly” gray shapes that disappeared when they turned to face them. Upon examining the area, it turned out that a fan was resonating the room at 18.98Hz, almost exactly the resonant frequency of the human eyeball. When the fan was turned off, so did all stories of ghostly apparitions. More here.

Going back as far as 1998, the Foreign Military Office at Fort Leavenworth published a short summary of what was described then as ‘wonder weapons’. In part:

A recent edition of U.S. News and World Report highlighted several of these “wonder weapons” (acoustics, microwaves, lasers) and noted that scientists are “searching the electromagnetic and sonic spectrums for wavelengths that can affect human behavior.” A recent Russian military article offered a slightly different slant to the problem, declaring that “humanity stands on the brink of a psychotropic war” with the mind and body as the focus. That article discussed Russian and international attempts to control the psycho-physical condition of man and his decision making processes by the use of VHF-generators, “noiseless cassettes,” and other technologies.

An entirely new arsenal of weapons, based on devices designed to introduce subliminal messages or to alter the body’s psychological and data processing capabilities, might be used to incapacitate individuals. These weapons aim to control or alter the psyche, or to attack the various sensory and data-processing systems of the human organism. In both cases, the goal is to confuse or destroy the signals that normally keep the body in equilibrium.

This article examines energy-based weapons, psychotropic weapons, and other developments designed to alter the ability of the human body to process stimuli. One consequence of this assessment is that the way we commonly use the term “information warfare” falls short when the individual soldier, not his equipment, becomes the target of attack.

A 2014 study in the journal Royal Society Open Science found that low-frequency sounds below the audible range could disrupt little whistles made by the ear, called spontaneous optoacoustic emissions, in response to noise. (How that is mapped to symptoms, however, wasn’t clear.)

In this instance, one possibility is that the infrasound stimulated the part of the ear not dedicated to hearing — the vestibular system that controls balance, Liberman said. In that instance, the symptoms wouldn’t appear immediately.

“You could imagine them being very slow onset and very persistent,” Liberman said. “It might take days before you even notice any funny sensations.”

Sonic Weapons

While the idea of a silent sonic weapon sounds like something out of James Bond, Inspector Gadget or the reject pile of DARPA, the idea of using sound as a weapon has a long history.

For instance, studies show that animals exposed to high-intensity, focused ultrasound can experience lung and brain damage. And a cruise line circling the pirate-infested waters off the Somali coast has taken to using a military-grade “sonic weapon” to deter would-be hijackers, the BBC reported. This long-range device, also known as a sound cannon, can cause permanent hearing loss at distances of up to 984 feet (300 meters), according to the BBC. Other companies have developed a magnetic acoustic device, commonly referred to as a sound laser , that deploys incredibly painful, focused beams of sound to deter people from an area, NPR reported. The Israeli army has also used a device known as “The Scream,” which damages the inner ear, causing nausea and dizziness, Wired reported. More here from FNC.

There is more going on than is being reported. Further, I would be asking all allied nations that have access to Cuba what they know and I would be challenging all SIGINT communications on the island…surely there is chatter about this very event. Since there are some Canadian personnel involved, has Canada made any inquiries and launched investigations? Crickets…

Steven Crowder Infiltrates Antifa At Shapiro Event… Offered Weapons [VIDEO]

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

I’m impressed with Steven Crowder and Not-Gay Jared. They have stones… these two infiltrated Antifa at the University of Utah before Ben Shapiro’s speech there. They shared their information with the police, who were grateful for it. Maddeningly, they tried to share it with the media, who wanted no part of it. Figures. Two comedians did what these behemoth media outlets can’t be bothered with… they worked their way into a domestic terrorist outfit and were offered knives and shivs. The members spoke of having guns and killing people. They even discussed luring people back to the parking lot to take them out. I fail to see how that is not news.

Trevor Loudon released his new documentary this week, entitled: America Under Siege: Antifa. Loudon’s documentary is so good and so insightful, that Antifa is threatening him now. That won’t stop Trevor… it never has. It’s below… if you haven’t seen it, watch it. He explains who Antifa is and what their goals are. Antifa is a reincarnation of Black Bloc. They evolved out of the Occupy Wall Street and Anonymous movements. They are not unique to the US. You see them throughout Europe now. They are anarcho-communists and are exceedingly violent. Antifa – or anti-fascists – believe there are two types of fascists. Your run-of-the-mill Nazis and anyone who supports capitalism. In their twisted minds, this justifies violence against most Americans. In progressive cities, those liberals who are in power are ordering the police to stand down so Antifa can get their violence on. Do you really think that is just a coincidence? It’s by design. It’s why the leftist media will not address Antifa at all… they support them.

Leon Trotsky formed the first Antifa-like units. They were armed thugs who suppressed opposition to communism prior to the Bolshevik uprising – Red October. It’s the same old story of the communists versus the fascists, only we are all being branded as fascists now in the communist left’s violent attempt at taking over America. Eventually 55 percent of the Brown-Shirts for Hitler would be former Antifa communist members. They called them Beef Steak Nazis… brown on the outside, red in the center.

Antifa is prevalent across Europe, with a big presence in Germany and Italy. There are towns in Germany called Antifa-towns. People fear them there. If you step out of line, they threaten your family and will come in and destroy your home. It’s not just the radical Islamists that are problematic there, Antifa is terrorizing these people as well.

So, you see, the answer to Steven Crowder’s question, “Are they really an inconsequential group of rabble rousers?”, is a resounding no. Antifa counts among its members many teachers, professors and students. They are being funded by very wealthy people as well. The only reason they get away with calling Ben Shapiro fascist (he’s Jewish), is that he believes in capitalism and constitutional rights. That is why Antifa considers him so dangerous to them. He’s a master debater and gets his message across to others, which Antifa will not tolerate.

Watch both videos and see the threat that Antifa truly is. They are militant and want revolution and chaos in the streets. They aren’t going away and will have to be defeated at some point. These are communists and this is their political agenda. They have been called many names throughout history, but their tactics, hatred and violence are always the same.

Aaron Rogers Asking for Fan Demonstration During the Anthem; How Patriotism Says No

The NFL’s most heralded rivalry, Bears vs. Packers, continues tonight at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, with the series tied at 94-94-6. But out-hyping the drama of this actual game, as the generations-long contesting teeter-totters, is this from Aaron Rogers and the Green Bay Packers, themselves.

Aaron Rodgers calls for fans to link arms like players

GREEN BAY – Quarterback said the Packers are going to ask the fans at Lambeau Field to join the players in linking arms on Thursday night during the national anthem prior to the game against the Bears.


Without getting into the ins and outs of the whole orchestrated President The Donald vs. NFL pro-wrestling style blow-up, for your perusal, my comments at the article two days ago, are as follows.

Respecting the standards of the founding of the United States of America brings about racial healing, among other good effects. Disrespecting the flag is not a cure for the personal sins of racism or a minority of rogue cops.

But then again, those that are determined to believe that criminals who are threatening to kill police and who happen to be black are innocent victims, are apparently obdurate against reality.

Hush up and learn. Do your jobs. Then, use your own soapboxes.

Stand at attention. Hand over heart. That’s the standard, to respect our national standard, the U.S. flag.

So, does that help anyone?

Insolence can sneak into the human soul very subtly. From his ESPN interview a few days ago, Mr. Rogers is on a spiritual journey. As with “Christian” in Pilgrim’s Progress, I hope that Packer progresses in the right direction, rather than the typical outcome of the “progressive.”

As for the NFL’s present political herd mentality, along with considering how they have dealt with concussions and other injuries, the world of sports betting, and their influence on children over the years, I suggest this fresh article, featured in a very recent edition of The Globe & Malevolence,Humans are Herd Animals: Study Finds People are More Unethical when Operating in Groups.”
