Abolishing ICE Is A Pre-911 Mentality

By: Denise Simon | Political Vanguard

In what may become a new litmus test, high-profile Democrats want to abolish the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (“ICE”). In doing so, they have been using hyperbole such as ‘black sites’ and ‘deportation force’ – not to mention failing to remember the lessons of 9/11.

Despite the president changing U.S. policy on border detentions, the open-borders advocates continue to protest.  Fueled by far-left benefactors like George Soros,  each weekend, there are protests and some have actually turned violent, such as the bloody unrest in Portland, Oregon.

What are the anti-ICE, pro-immigrant people missing?

There is a grassroots movement where citizens are fighting back to regain sovereignty. How about Brexit? There are other countries in the European Union that may follow Britain, such as Scotland or Italy. This whole globalism thing has been found to have dangerous components. Open borders give rise to lawlessness, confusion, fraud, death and trafficking of all sorts.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement is a rather young agency, established formally in 2003 with a real purpose, just a short time after the attacks on our country on 9/11. There was a rightful concern and in some cases a panic with not knowing who was in our country, how they got here and what they are doing here. For the continued sake of public safety, that condition remains as laws have gaps, while others invite questionable people in. Once investigated and with evidence, those people do need to be deported.

ICE holds the responsibility for many threatening cases such as female genital mutilation, an Islamic crime against women that occurs in America. Some of those cases involve people in the United States under a temporary visa, on visa overstays or just using falsified documents to enter the country.

ICE also has the lead on DarkNet vendors where illegal and illicit goods are sold and traded, such as drugs, counterfeit goods and weapons.

It was not too long ago, with the assistance of ICE, that Obama and Trump both deported Russian illegals that were part of spying and espionage rings and intellectual property theft. When it comes to gangs, no real description is required as we know full well about MS-13. There is also a Japanese gang known as Yakusa, which is an international organized crime syndicate. They have cells in Seattle, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Chicago and New York City. The FBI maintains 160 violent gang safe street task forces nationwide. If deportation is declared by the court in a criminal case, that is the role of ICE.

In 2007-2008, the United States prosecuted a case known as the Holyland Foundation trial. The Department of Justice handed down countless convictions for material support to Hamas, a terror organization. Many received sentencing in U.S. prisons and others were deported.

Are our memories so short that we forget Farook and Malik that were the San Bernardino terrorists? How about in 2016, where two refugees were arrested, both Palestinians born in Iraq. One was from Houston, while the other was from Sacramento. How about Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov? He was born in Tashkent and came to the United States in 2010 on a diversity immigrant visa. He rented a U-Haul truck and mowed down people in lower Manhattan on November 1, 2017. If government intelligence agencies, policy and tracking were well oiled machines, ICE would have detained him and deported him.

Facts are stubborn things. One such fact that was included in congressional testimony reported that since 2001, there were 549 convictions for international terror related cases. Of that number, 254 were not U.S. citizens and 148 received U.S. citizenship through naturalization.

Are the Democrats so shallow and so twisted that they demand ICE be abolished, but say nothing of the increased threat to public safety if ICE was re-tooled and open borders was a human right policy?

The Supreme Court decision to uphold President Trump’s travel suspension is hardly a Muslim ban since North Korea and Venezuela are part of proclamation 9645. There are countries that cannot provide or won’t provide credible background information on people attempting to enter the United States. The Trump White House is suspending distinctive travel requests until such time that a country can and will provide the necessary information.

We have come a very long way since 9/11 to enhance security, protections, intelligence, policies and procedures. Tell those Democrats this plan to abolish ICE has another threatening component and they have short memories. Pre-9/11 attitudes are reckless and ANTIFA should be designated a domestic terror organization in the meantime.


Awan Gets Wrist Slap, DWS Dances

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

The Washington Post submits this Pakistani IT scandal in the Democrat caucus in the House of Representatives is fabricated, yet WaPo never investigated or reported a word of the case.

This case is one of the most obscure, fraudulent, secret cases in DC with only one media source doing good work, The Daily Caller.

Seems Awan took a little plea deal with a slap on the wrist and Debbie Wasserman Schultz dances in celebration. That is unless the Feds got something out of Awan to go after lil miss Debbie or the others. There are plenty of others.

*** Awan pleaded guilty Tuesday to federal bank fraud in a plea deal where prosecutors said they “uncovered no evidence” that Awan “violated federal law with respect to the House computer systems.”

During a hearing before U.S. District Judge Tanya S. Chutkan in Washington, Awan pleaded guilty to making a false statement on a loan application. As part of the deal, the prosecution dropped fraud charges against Awan’s wife, Hina Alvi. (This judge by the way, from Jamaica, was appointed by Obama, read more on her here.)

The other swampiness continues…

The case has generated interest from Republicans on Capitol Hill, who have suggested Awan could have been involved in a cyber breach operation. But prosecutors said Tuesday they investigated allegations of misconduct by Awan while on the job in Congress and determined federal charges were not warranted.

“Particularly, the government has found no evidence that your client illegally removed House data from the House network or from House members’ offices, stole the House Democratic Caucus server, stole or destroyed House information technology equipment, or improperly accessed or transferred government information, including classified or sensitive information,” the prosecution said in the plea deal.

Prosecutors said the government conducted a “thorough investigation of those allegations.” More here.


But hold on…there is missing computer and electronic devices. Is this another Hillary-type case?

Over 40 offices in the House of Representatives may have fallen victim to an “IT security violation,” according to a secret memo from top congressional law enforcement to the Committee on House Administration.

The memo, written in part by Paul Irving, the House’s sergeant at arms, detailed the disappearance of a server for the House Democratic Caucus following its marking as evidence in a cybersecurity probe. Imran Awan, email server administrator to former DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and members of his family had logged into the server more than 7,000 times between 2015 and 2016 without proper authorization.

Since then, the memo alleges, the caucus server holding emails from lawmakers has been replaced by a lookalike, but the original is gone.

*** More detail:

A secret memo marked “URGENT” detailed how the House Democratic Caucus’s server went “missing” soon after it became evidence in a cybersecurity probe. The secret memo also said more than “40 House offices may have been victims of IT security violations.”

In the memo, Congress’s top law enforcement official, Sergeant-at-Arms Paul Irving, along with Chief Administrative Officer Phil Kiko, wrote, “We have concluded that the employees [Democratic systems administrator Imran Awan and his family] are an ongoing and serious risk to the House of Representatives, possibly threatening the integrity of our information systems and thereby members’ capacity to serve constituents.”

The memo, addressed to the Committee on House Administration (CHA) and dated Feb. 3, 2017, was recently reviewed and transcribed by The Daily Caller News Foundation. The letter bolsters TheDCNF’s previous reporting about the missing server and evidence of fraud on Capitol Hill.

It details how the caucus server, run by then-caucus Chairman Rep. Xavier Becerra, was secretly copied by authorities after the House Inspector General (IG) identified suspicious activity on it, but the Awans’ physical access was not blocked.

But after, the report reads, the server appears to have been secretly replaced with one that looked similar.

The memo called for firing the Pakistani-born aides, revoking all their computer accounts, and changing the locks on any door they had access to.

Rep. Louie Gohmert — a Texas Republican on the House Committee on the Judiciary who has done oversight work on the case — said the missing server contained copies of Congress members’ emails.

“They put 40 members of Congress’s data on one server … That server, with that serial number, has disappeared,” he said.

Multiple sources connected to the investigation told TheDCNF that shortly after an IG report came out identifying the House Democratic Caucus server as key evidence in a criminal probe, the evidence was stolen.

“They [the Awans] deliberately turned over a fake server” to falsify evidence, one official close to the CHA alleged. “It was a breach. The data was completely out of [members’] possession.”

The six-page letter says:

• In September of 2016 … the CHA and [IG] briefed the former Chairman of the Democratic Caucus about suspicious activity related to their server that the [IG] identified. As a result, the former Chairman of the Democratic Caucus directed the CAO to copy the data from their server and two computers.
• The CHA directed the IG to refer the matter to the US Capitol Police. The USCP initiated an investigation that continues to this day.
• In late 2016, the former Chairman of the Democratic Caucus announced his intention to resign from Congress to assume a new position. The CAO and [sergeant-at-arms] worked with the Chairman to account for his inventory, including the one server.
• While reviewing the inventory, the CAO discovered that the serial number of the server did not match that of the one imaged in September. [Investigators] also discovered that the server in question [the replacement server] was still operating under the employee’s control, contrary to the explicit instructions of the former chairman to turn over all equipment and fully cooperate with the inquiry and investigation. [A House source said the “employee” was Abid Awan.]
• The USCP interviewed relevant staff regarding the missing server.
• On January 24, 2017, the CAO acquired the [replacement] server from the control of the employees and transferred that server to the USCP.

President Donald Trump referenced the Democratic Caucus’ missing server in a tweet. But because the letter to the CHA was kept secret, many news outlets have not grasped that the House’s top cop documented a “missing server” connected to the Democratic Caucus.

The timeline laid out in the letter also shows that Becerra — now California’s Democratic attorney general — failed to ensure that the Awans didn’t have access to House computer systems during the 2016 election, which was wrought with cybersecurity scandals.

An IG presentation from September 2016 shows that Becerra knew of problems months before the server disappeared.

“The Caucus Chief of Staff requested one of the shared employees to not provide IT services or access their computers,” it read. “This shared employee continued.” It’s unclear why that request was not granted or why it was a request rather than an order.

A House official close to the probe said the employee was Abid, who was not on Becerra or the Caucus’s payroll. The official said Becerra Chief of Staff Sean McCluskie apparently knew Abid was accessing Caucus servers. According to payroll records, Abid’s sister-in-law, Hina Alvi, was the Caucus’ systems administrator.

The Awans’ continued physical access to Becerra’s equipment after red flags emerged enabled the server to disappear after it became evidence, House officials close to the investigation told TheDCNF.

Becerra has refused to comment, citing an ongoing criminal investigation.

The February 2017 memo itemizes “numerous and egregious violations of House IT security” by members of the Awan family, including using Congress members’ usernames and “the unauthorized storage of sensitive House information outside the House.”

“These employees accessed user accounts and computers for offices that did not employ them, without the knowledge and permission of the impacted Member’s office,” it said, adding, “4 of the employees accessed the Democratic Caucus computers 5,735 times.” More than 100 office computers were open to access from people not on the office’s staff, it said.

Chris Gowen — a former aide to Hillary Clinton who is now serving as Imran’s attorney — told TheDCNF, “There is no missing server and never was.”

He didn’t provide any support for his claim, which is contrary to evidence Kiko and Irving presented to Congress.

The memo said the CHA possesses voluminous evidence, including, “Interview notes with House Members’ Chiefs of Staff,” and “Logon activity and computer access logs.” Prosecutors have not brought charges.

The Awans were banned from Congress’s computer network the day the letter was sent, and Kiko held a briefing to convey the message to chiefs of staff for members who employed them.

But Democrats claim they were never told about any of the cybersecurity issues itemized in the urgent memo. Rep. Jackie Speier — a California Democrat on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence who employed Imran and his wife, Hina Alvi — said she never heard of any missing server.

Joaquin Castro of Texas — another Democratic intelligence committee member who employed one of the Awans — told TheDCNF that Kiko never told him of any cybersecurity issues whatsoever and that the Awan probe was instead described as a theft issue.

Indeed, the CHA issued only one public statement on the case and titled it the “House Theft Investigation” — wording that avoids cybersecurity words while political news coverage raged about other cybersecurity issues in the 2016 election.

Yet even the alleged theft has not resulted in criminal charges — even though the letter also says House authorities have “purchase orders and vouchers” that allegedly show procurement fraud, as well as testimony from a Democratic chief of staff to Rep. Yvette Clarke, who warned of procurement fraud.

The FBI arrested Imran at the airport in July 2017 for alleged bank fraud that occurred six months prior, and Democrats have since claimed that the case is about nothing but bank fraud. Bank fraud does not explain why the Awans were kicked off the House network concurrent with the urgent memo, which did not cite bank fraud.

A Democratic IT aide who alleged that Imran solicited a bribe from him told TheDCNF he believes members of Congress are playing dumb and covering the matter up. Wendy Anderson, a former chief of staff to New York Rep. Yvette Clarke, told House investigators that she suspected that her predecessor, Shelley Davis, was working with Abid on a theft scheme, but Clarke refused to fire Abid until outside investigators got involved, TheDCNF reported.

Eighteen months after the evidence was recounted in the urgent memo, prosecution appears to have stalled for reasons not publicly explained. Imran is in court July 3 for a possible plea deal in the bank fraud case. Gohmert said the FBI has refused to accept evidence demonstrating alleged House misconduct, and some witnesses with first-hand knowledge say the bureau has not interviewed them.


Facebook Rejects Pro-America Christian July 4th Music Video For “Political Content”

By: Lloyd Marcus

Facebook rejected this Pro-America Christian July 4 music video for “political content”: https://www.reverbnation.com/q/79x2rq

My wife Mary tried to purchase a boost ad on Facebook to promote the July 4th release of my: “We Are Americans” music video. The video was rejected for “political content.” Since when did reminding people of who we are as Americans and encouraging people to turn to God become political?

I was alerted that a Nashville Christian musician has also been rejected by Facebook. Meanwhile, Facebook has gone full-blown supportive of leftist politics and anti-God. Gender has become totally politicized. Facebook offers 71 gender options which include asexual, polygender and a two-spirit person – whatever the heck that is. https://bit.ly/2pkc95

In my ad rejected by Facebook, I said, “My fellow Americans my heart goes out for our country. We have fallen away from biblical principles and values which have made America the shining city on a hill. During your July4th Independence Day celebration, between eating burgers and hot-dogs, please gather your family to enjoy this new 4 minute music video reminding us of who we are as Americans. Happy Independence Day! Thanks and God Bless.” Lloyd Marcus

Folks, Facebook attempting to silence conservative speech is only the beginning. The American left is openly and boldly attacking Godly principles and values which have made America great – the shining city on a hill. Trump is swiftly rolling back Obama’s 8 years of leftists’ transformation of America and it is making leftists deranged.

As a Christian, I know Trump’s presidency is God giving us a chance to restore our great nation. I hated watching Obama tear-down the joy and dignity of being an American; instilling class envy and racial hatred among US citizens, rolling out the red carpet for illegals and encouraging Americans to get on welfare.

I want to scream from the rooftops, “We are better than this, we are Americans!” Please do not allow the American left to silence conservative speech.

Democratic Socialists of America Leaders Rush To Endorse Communism and Violence

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

I consider DSAer Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York to be extremely dangerous to the freedoms of this country. Democratic Socialists of America have seen a number of wins this year by getting members elected to office, but hers will be the biggest win so far and it foreshadows a new wave of young, millennial communist Democrats who will follow in her wake across the nation. Membership for DSA is exploding across the nation suddenly as millennials rush to imitate their new idol. Clueless, useful idiots on the run. She’s a Bernie Sanders acolyte and young voters are flocking to her.

She ran on a platform that promises the abolishment of ICE and the nationalization of healthcare using a single-payer system. She promises to impeach President Trump as well. Other planks include Medicare for all, a universal jobs guarantee, no tuition for education at schools or universities, paid family and sick leave, housing as a human right, ending the war on drugs, demilitarization of the police, doing away with prisons, open borders and decriminalization for illegal aliens, an infrastructure overhaul using green energy, ending corporate donations in politics and a peaceful economy (by force if necessary). She beat Crowley, the fourth-ranking Democrat in the House, by 15 points in a New York City district that covers the Bronx and part of Queens. It was a massive shock to not only the nation, but the Democrats themselves. Wake up and smell the communism guys.

If you don’t already read Far Left Watch, you should. They research and report on radical leftists here in the U.S. and they do a terrific job of it. DSA made headlines when their leadership from their Iowa State campus chapter encouraged people to shoot President Trump and when leadership from their University of Georgia Chapter called for the execution of house GOP members. Did you ever hear about that in the media? Nope. Now, a number of DSA leaders are endorsing communism out in the open as well. Far Left Watch puts it succinctly, it is “an ideology responsible or the oppression, incarceration, and murder of tens of millions of people.”

This is the original tweet from Olivia Katbi Smith, who is the co-Chair of the Portland DSA chapter – I find it eye-opening:


That’s the mask coming off once and for all. It’s the truth behind the matter in stark relief. Others followed suit.

The Charlottesville DSA co-chair had this to say:


From the Hudson County DSA co-chair:

The Seattle DSA co-chair also chimed in:


The Queens DSA chapter didn’t want to be left out either – that’s Ocasio-Cortez’s stomping grounds:


The media has been slobbering all over Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez since her win and they just adore “democratic socialism.” Of course, Alexandria never actually defines on air what the difference between “democratic socialism” and “socialism” is… not because she doesn’t know, but because there is none. Democratic Socialists of America, who she represents, never seems to become a topic of inquiry though. Neither does the fact that they endorse using their violent authoritarian ideology against their opponents. The same consideration is never afforded the right.

Ocasio-Cortez is not pure as the driven red snow either. One commenter on my blog had this to say about her, “She’s clueless….mentions Celia Cruz during Black History Month! Celia Cruz left Cuba because of the very ideas that she is espousing. Celia was denied the right to return to Cuba by that communist regime to attend either of her parents funerals. It tore her apart. Now comes this misinformed millennial and posts idiotic comments like this. Makes my Cuban blood boil.” Right there with ya BC.

She also tries to paint herself as part of the working class even though she grew up in an affluent New York neighborhood. She did work as a bartender while running for office and her coworkers had very unflattering things to say about her. They called Alexandria greedy and, in at least one instance, allegedly kept most of the tips for herself. But she’s pretty, young and has propaganda down to an art, not only on social media, but with banners and pins. She reminds me of old-world communism. Evidently, it’s making a horrid comeback.

Not all of Occasio-Cortez’s fellow Marxists share her exuberance for taking socialism nationwide either. Democratic senator, Illinois’ Tammy Duckworth, says not so fast. “I think it’s the future of the party in the Bronx, where she is,” Duckworth said on CNN’s State of the Union, over the weekend. “I think that you can’t win the White House without the Midwest, and I don’t think you can go too far to the left and still win the Midwest.” Duckworth added that where she’s from the message has to be directed to “the industrial Midwest.” She’s right – that dog won’t hunt there.

Alexandria is far from giving up on it though. “With respect to the Senator, strong, clear advocacy for working class Americans isn’t just for the Bronx,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted, listing Sanders’s primary wins in Michigan, Minnesota, Kansas, Nebraska, Wisconsin and Indiana. “We then lost several of those states in the general. What’s the plan to prevent a repeat?” she asked. The media is saying that Tammy Duckworth should embrace “socialism with Midwestern characteristics.”

The Democratic Party is lurching to the extreme left. They are brazenly becoming communist, not only in ideology, but in their tendency towards violence and suppression of freedom and rights as well. Ocasio-Cortez is not a one-off. She’s a trend and a dangerous one. And DSA, CPUSA and the Democrats are embracing all of it.
