West Point investigation of faculty member who mentored Antifa student

Sure looks like West Point has been infiltrated and now is in the market of indoctrination of our best sons and daughters. Back in 2013 I posted West Point Think Tank warns of dangerous “Conservatives”

A West Point think tank has issued a paper warning America about “far right” groups such as the “anti-federalist” movement, which supports “civil activism, individual freedoms and self-government.”

Now we have the radicalization of a student by a faculty member:

The West Point mentor of a soldier now under investigation by the Army for engaging in political activity while in uniform is on administrative leave, Breitbart News has learned.

The adviser is Rasheed Hosein, a professor of Middle East history, who was in charge of Second Lieutenant Spenser Rapone’s development at West Point.

At West Point, Hosein had mentored Rapone. The two apparently traveled together to India together in 2014 and maintained a close relationship until Rapone graduated in May 2016. Also during that time, Rapone’s Facebook posts grew increasingly radical and leftist. Rapone’s activities caught the attention of command authorities this week after he posted photos of himself in his West Point uniform while promoting communism on social media.

On Sunday, Rapone posted a picture of himself in his West Point uniform holding a sign that said, “Communism will win” tucked under his cover, or hat, raising a clenched left fist.

He tweeted the photo along with the words #VeteransForKaepernick — a reference to football player Colin Kaepernick, the first player to kneel during the national anthem at a football game to protest racism.

Hosein’s bio on the West Point website lists Rapone as one of two cadets he last advised at West Point.

Hosein began teaching at West Point in July 2011. Previously, he served as the director of Public Education for the Center for Middle Eastern Studies at the University of Chicago.

He was also Muslim Lay Chaplain at West Point, Officer in Charge of the Muslim Cadet Association, and Emeritus Facility Adviser of Phi Alpha Theta, a national history honor society of which Rapone was a member, according to a photo.

Hosein brought Phi Alpha Theta members, including Rapone, to Orlando, Florida, for a national conference in February 2016. More at Breitbart

Colin Kaepernick, raised by White couple, paid $20 Mil by White NFL Owner

Looks like Colin didn’t grow up in the hood. Another angry inter-racial man, raised by White people. Reminds me of what we just had in the White House.

Something for a Friday. Sometimes a picture is worth a lot of words.

Rick and Teresa Kaepernick, who are white, adopted Colin when he was only 5 weeks old. The couple had lost two sons at birth to congenital heart failure and were not eligible to adopt a white baby from a private adoption agency. Then came along a tiny biracial baby boy who had recently been given away by his 19-year-old white mother. Teresa called Colin her “perfect child.” More at

Chelsea Clinton’s ‘Best Friend’s’ Defense Company Got $11 Mil In Contracts But Doesn’t Have Federal Security Clearance

Another jewel fished out of the Clinton secret Email Server. Emails that show the Clinton contempt is securing our secrets. Giving out contracts without regard to their qualifications. We are not talking about some contract to build something, but rather handling our secrets:

A company whose president is “best friends” with Chelsea Clinton received more than $11 million in contracts over the last decade from a highly secretive Defense Department think tank, but to date, the group lacks official federal approval to handle classified materials, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned.

ONA is so sensitive, the specialized think tank is housed in the Office of the Secretary of Defense and it reports directly to the Secretary.

To date, LTSG has received $11.2 million in contracts, according to USAspending,gov, a government database of federal contracts.

But after winning a decade of contracts from ONA, only now is the federal agency in the process of granting clearance to the company. LTSG never operated a secure room on their premises to handle classified materials, according to the Defense Security Service, a federal agency that approves secure rooms inside private sector firms. LTSG operates offices in Washington, D.C., and Cambridge, Mass.

Clinton and Newmyer first met each other while attending Sidwell Friends School, an exclusive private Quaker school in the nation’s capital. They were in each other’s weddings, and in 2011 Chelsea referred to Newmyer as her “best friend.”

In numerous emails, Chelsea’s mom Hillary Clinton, then secretary of state, actively promoted Newmyer and attempted to assist her in securing Defense Department contracts.

Secretary Clinton put Newmyer in contact with Michèle Flournoy, former President Barack

Obama’s undersecretary of defense, according to the emails from Clinton’s private email server and released by the State Department under a lawsuit filed by the watchdog group Judicial Watch. More at  Daily Caller

Clinton’s Freudian slip – ‘Hope Trump has not ordered killing journalists’

The clip is only twenty seconds but she is back to her strident self. Sure looks like the abominable book tour will go on for the next four years apparently.Hillary doesn’t think Trump believes in Democracy. Now that is a good one. As Zip says over at Weasel Zippers, Pot Kettle Black.

Hillary Clinton said Monday on Bloomberg News that President Donald Trump has “tendencies toward authoritarianism,” adding that she hopes he has not “ordered the killing of people and journalists” as Russian President Vladimir Putin has been accused of doing.

 

During a conversation with Charlie Rose, she compared Trump to Russian President Vladimir Putin, whose relationship with Trump has particularly drawn scrutiny from Democrats and the media. Clinton discussed her ideas on Trump’s view of democracy, saying she “hopes” the president is not exactly like Putin in every way.

“I don’t think he really values democracy, Charlie,” Clinton said.

“He doesn’t value democracy? Rose asked. “So he’s not a ‘democrat,’ little ‘d?’”

NFL Players arrested on average every seven days

Maybe these facts represent why the NFL players find rules hard to follow and a chip on their shoulder for being arrested by the police. Maybe it’s time for the NFL to let their bad boys go for good:

The National Football League is in a golden age right now: It’s been 23 days since one of its players has been arrested. Update: One arrested yesterday. Here is the handy-dandy arrest chart  NFL Arrests

The average time between arrests is just seven days, while the record without an arrest is slightly more than two months, at 65 days, according to Arrests which “provides an interactive visualized database of National Football League player Arrests & Charges,” the site says.

Players get arrested for a variety of crimes: drunk driving, drug offenses, domestic violence, assault and battery, gun violations, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, theft, burglary, rape and even murder.

The NFL virtually embraces players who abuse women. Take this report in the Chicago Tribune: “In the first round [of the 2017 draft], the Oakland Raiders drafted Gareon Conley, who has been accused of rape. In the second round, the Cincinnati Bengals selected Joe Mixon, who in a much-viewed video punches a woman so hard that she falls down unconscious. In the sixth round, the Cleveland Browns selected Caleb Brantley, who was accused of doing pretty much what Mixon did.”

The most arrests: Adam Jones, with 10. Jones has played for both Tennessee and Cincinnati, and he’s been accused of poking a hotel worker in the eye, punching a woman, spitting in a woman’s face at a nightclub, and was “charged with felony coercion in connection to strip club shooting that paralyzed a man” (take a look at all his arrests here).

The top positions of those arrested:

  • Wide receiver – 140
  • Linebacker – 119
  • Cornerback – 116
  • Running back – 99
  • Defensive tackle – 80

State Department Delaying Aid Congress Provided to Yazidis, Christians in Iraq

 

Go figure this one out. Trying to save Christians and Yazidis in Iraq? Apparently we will leave that to the UN. But Secretary Tillerson is more than happy to bail out the Muslims in Burma. You can bet they will be getting refugee status and moving here to our quaint little towns in places like Idaho and other rural communities because that is the way this stupid stuff rolls:

Human rights activists and Catholic groups are questioning why the State Department still appears reluctant to direct money Congress appropriated to assist Christians, Yazidis, and other persecuted religious minorities in Iraq but this week quickly dispatched $32 million to help a majority Muslim group fleeing violence in Burma.

Tillerson’s quick efforts to help the Rohingya demonstrated the State Department’s ability to quickly direct humanitarian aid to a threatened minority group. However, critics say the swift action stands in sharp contrast to State’s foot-dragging when it comes to directing funds to Yazidis, Christians, and other religious minorities facing genocide in Iraq.

Despite the congressional commitment, lawmakers and human rights activists say most of the U.S. taxpayer money going to help people in Iraq is channeled through the United Nations, which has a “religion-blind” policy of distributing most of the money to refugee camps that Yazidis and Christians avoid out of fear of further violence and persecution.

“It is always good when people who are in danger are helped. But why is there a terrible disparity between our government’s treatment of the Rohingya Muslims in Burma and the absolute lack of help for Yazidis and Christians in Iraq, whom Secretary Tillerson declared last month to be victims of genocide?” asked Nina Shea, an international human rights lawyer who directs the Hudson Institute’s Center for Religious Freedom.

An ode to the Autumn Equinox (Mabon) “She is dying”

The wheel keeps turning. On Friday the Autumn Equinox took place. Many cultures celebrate this event, and have for thousands of years. For my respite I give you this. The song is by Clannad, sung in Gaelic, in the Donegal dialect. Have a wonderful day.

John McCain and George Soros – happy together, won’t say where $6 Mil came from

Okay McCain. Time to come clean. What are you and George Soros doing? And where are all those bucks coming from? He refuses to disclose the donor list. The Daily Caller first reported this back in June. With his apparent sinking of the overturn of Obamacare, it’s worth another look. Here goes:

The question we all want to know, is where did it come from? John McCain keeps hiding and refuses to answer that question!

What we do know, thanks to an investigation by The Daily Caller, is that the McCain Institute for International Leadership received a VERY GENEROUS donation from none other than George Soros.

The institute is intended to serve as a “legacy” for McCain. It “is dedicated to advancing human rights, dignity, democracy and freedom”. It is also a tax-exempt non-profit foundation with assets valued at $8.1 million and associated with Arizona State University.

John McCain turned over nearly $9 million in unspent funds from his failed 2008 presidential campaign to a new foundation bearing his name, the McCain Institute for International Leadership.

The DC gives us more:

Critics worry that the institute’s donors and McCain’s personal leadership in the organization’s exclusive “Sedona Forum” bear an uncanny resemblance to the glitzy Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) that annually co-mingled special interests and powerful political players in alleged pay-to-play schemes.

The institute has accepted contributions of as much as $100,000 from billionaire liberal activist-funder George Soros and from Teneo, a for-profit company co-founded by Doug Band, former President Bill Clinton’s “bag man.”

Teneo has long helped enrich Clinton through lucrative speaking and business deals. (Earlier I had posted Huma Abedin, Bill Clinton’s Butt boy Band’s new Emails will take the Clintons down? In the post, it gave a close look at the relationship of Doug Band and Bill Clinton and the Company Teneo.)

And Bloomberg reported in 2016 on a $1 million Saudi Arabian donation to the institute, a contribution the McCain group has refused to explain publicly.

In addition, the institute has taken at least $100,000 from a Moroccan state-run company tied to repeated charges of worker abuse and exploitation. The McCain group has also accepted at least $100,000 from the Pivotal Foundation. It was created by Francis Najafi who owns the Pivotal Group, a private equity and real estate firm.

What exactly is John McCain doing behind closed doors? What is he doing for Soros to get all that financial love?

Luther Strange RUNS from DACA Amnesty Questions UPDATE!

Battle of the titans. The Establishment v. the regular guy? It is a strange GOP race in Alabama – no pun intended – as the GOP establishment swirls around Trump’s support for Luther Strange who is the temp guy for Session’s seat, and Judge Roy Moore.The rising political star of Judge Roy Moore in Alabama is another surprise in a political season defined by the unexpected and the unconventional.

UPDATE: More on Luther Stranger here.

Luther Strange Lobbied for Trade Deal That Drained Thousands of Alabama Jobs to Honduras, Mexico

Back to the original post:

On Aug. 15, Moore finished ahead of Senator Luther Strange in a primary election to pick the Republican candidate who will run in November’s general election to fill the seat of former Senator Jeff Sessions. Sessions vacated the seat to become the nation’s attorney general.

Sen. Luther Strange is running from questions about his possible support for the Democrats’ huge “Dreamer” amnesty, which would provide citizenship to at least 3.3 million illegals and also cut wages in his home state of Alabama.

Strange’s campaign website ducks the high-profile issue, saying only that:

It is our duty to uphold and enforce immigration law. Individuals who enter our country illegally should not receive the benefits that taxpaying Americans do. Immediate deportation of criminal aliens, building President Trump’s border wall, and cutting off funding for sanctuary cities are all effective means to enforce America’s laws and strengthen its borders.

Enforcing immigration law is also crucial to protecting Americans from terrorists seeking entry into our country under false pretenses. Luther Strange stands with President Trump and supports banning refugees in terrorist countries from entering our borders.

One Alabama constituent received a similarly evasive answer, according to a report in Alabama Today:

Jack Kemp of Fosters, Ala. posted Strange’s email response on his Facebook page Tuesday, concerned that the Senator supports the Dream Act as he did not outright refute it in the email.

The reported response from Strange’s office says “Currently, this [amnesty] bill is in the Senate Judiciary Committee. I do not serve on that committee, but if this bill comes to the Senate floor for debate and a vote, I will keep your views in mind.” The Facebook post did not say Strange would oppose a DACA amnesty.

Strange offered a similarly vague description of his DACA-amnesty views in a radio ad which criticizes Judge Roy Moore, his primary rival, for not knowing about the “dreamer’ program. The radio ad declared that Strange “is proud to stand beside President Trump who understands how serious it is to stop illegal immigration and enforce our nation’s laws.” The ad did not say that Strange would oppose a DACA amnesty.
