FBI knew terrorist headed for Garland Texas, never told Organizers

This should make us sleep like babies. I am no fan of Shep Smith and his often arrogant display of his views. But he managed to report this. Pamela Geller when contacted indicated she was not told of a possible attack by the FBI. Why did the FBI hold a closed door meeting with reporters? Just asking.

The FBI knew Elton Simpson was heading to Garland, Texas.
But the event organizers WERE NOT Notified nor was their security team!

Shepard Smith reported on Thursday:

The FBI knew one of the gunmen in Sunday’s attack in Texas could be targeting the controversial Mohammad cartoon contest, anti-Islam conference… And they knew it hours before the attack occurred. That comes straight from the FBI director who just moments ago held a closed door meeting with reporters. The FBI put out a bulletin with suspect’s picture before the attack. He said it’s not clear if police in Garland, Texas knew about that bulletin.

A number of Clinton Foundation Board of Directors charged or convicted of crimes

The hits just keep coming with the Clintons and their money machine. But this isn’t anything new. It only confirms their pattern of sleaze and corruption. Here we go:

Shocking revelations show that at least four Clinton Foundation board of directors have either been charged or convicted of financial crimes, including bribery and fraud.

This newest, startling revelation is just one more of many in Peter Schweizer’s bombshell book Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich, the book that has sent the Hillary Clinton campaign and the media scrambling.

The book shows that there are many problems with the Clinton charity. In fact, the Clinton Foundation is so unlike a real charity that even charity watchdog group Charity Navigator refuses to rate the Clinton Foundation because of its “atypical business model.”

One of those problems is the fact that the Clintons put big donors and close pals on the board for reasons that are hard to fathom. In fact, at least four of these “board members” have either been charged or convicted of serious financial irregularities, crimes including bribery and fraud. More at Breitbart:

Jade Helm – Is this how the elites will wage war in America?

To be honest, I have been paying small attention to the “Jade Helm” controversy that has been the concern of many micro bloggers. What with all of the scandals, a city aflame, a Congress out of control there just was little time.But when I caught Zero Hedge run a very well thought out post with a clip of activity in Fort Lauderdale, it made it to the front of the line. I encourage everyone to slide over and read the whole thing.

When elites wage war in America, this will be how they will do it

In the meantime, here is a taste of the post.

A late night military exercise conducted in a highly populated urban area of Florida has many residents wondering if there were intentions beyond the training aspect of the operation.

Federal crisis exercises have a strange historical tendency to suddenly coincide with very real crisis events. We may know very little about Jade Helm beyond government admissions, claims and misdirection. But at the very least, we know what “JADE” is an acronym for: Joint Assistance for Deployment and Execution, a program designed to create action and deployment plans using computer models meant to speed up reaction times for military planners during a “crisis scenario.” It is linked with another program called ACOA (Adaptive Course of Action), the basis of which is essentially the use of past mission successes and computer models to plan future missions. Both are products of theDefense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).

As far as I know, no one has presented any hard evidence as to what “HELM” really stands for, but the JADE portion of the exercise explicitly focuses on rapid force deployment planning in crisis situations, according to the government white paper linked above. This fact alone brings into question statements by the Department of Defense that Jade Helm is nothing more than a training program to prepare military units for “foreign deployment.” This is clearly a lie if Jade Helm revolves around crisis events (which denotes domestic threats), rather than foreign operations.

Of course, if you also consider the reality that special operations forces ALWAYS train like they fight and train in environments similar to where they will fight, the entire notion of Jade Helm as a preparation for foreign theaters sounds absurd. If special operations forces are going to fight in Iraq, Iran or Syria, they go to training grounds in places like Kuwait. If they are training in places like Fort Lauderdale, Florida (including “infiltration training”), then there is no way around the fact that they are practicing to fight somewhere exactly like Fort Lauderdale with a similar culture and population.

I would further note that Jade Helm exercises are also joint exercises with domestic agencies like the FBI and the DEA.  Again, why include domestic law enforcement agencies in a military exercise merely meant to prepare troops for foreign operations?  I often hear the argument that the military would never go along with such a program, but people who take this rather presumptive position do not understand crisis psychology.  In the event of a national catastrophe many military personnel and government employees may determine that they will do what is “best for them and their families”.  And if following orders guarantees the security of their families (food security, shelter, etc), then they may very well follow any order, no matter how dubious.  Also, a large scale crisis could be used as a rationale for martial law; otherwise well meaning military men and women could be convinced that the loss of constitutional freedoms might be for the “greater good of the greater number”.  I believe some military will indeed resist such efforts, but of course, Jade Helm may also be a method for vetting such uncooperative people before any live operation occurs.

Clinton foundation event to have Somali pirate advocate speak

Recall Clinton Foundation marches on. $1 Million from Moroccan King? Now we know who one of the good folks that will be speaking at the May conference.This is where the millions of dollars of the Clinton’s good work goes. To a Somali pirate advocate. Looks like Hillary decided to bail on the conference. But hubby and daughter stand strong.

This week’s Clinton Global Initiative conference in Morocco will feature a speech by K’naan Warsame, a prominent hip-hop artist and Somali pirate advocate.

K’naan, whose hit songs include “Wavin’ Flag (Coca-Cola Celebration Remix)” and “Wavin’ Flag (Coca-Cola Spanish Celebration Remix),” has expressed support in the past for the pirates wreaking havoc off the coast of Somalia, where he was born.

“A lot of people don’t like me for saying this but I’m in support of the pirates,” K’naan said in a 2009radio interview, arguing that piracy had “actually helped us clear our environment” by holding ships for ransom, including some that dump toxic waste off the Somali coast.

He has courted controversy by speaking out in defence of Somali pirates, whose recent activities have included the kidnapping of British couple Paul and Rachel Chandler and the seizure of the US-bound supertanker Maran Centaurus. One of his lyrics asks: “So what do you know about the pirates terrorise the ocean/to never know a simple day without a big commotion.”

Former secretary of state Hillary Clinton praised Morocco last year in a statement announcing the conference, describing the country as “a vital hub for economic and cultural exchange.”

That sentiment appears incongruous with the statements issued by the State Department during Clinton’s tenure, which complained of “continuing human rights problems” in the country, such as “arbitrary arrests and corruption in all branches of government,” as well as “discrimination against women and girls; trafficking in persons; and child labor.”

The Clinton Foundation is accepting a major donation from a Moroccan government-owned company to hold a high-profile conference next month in Marrakech with the king of Morocco — an event likely to reignite concerns about the foundation’s acceptance of foreign money just as Hillary Clinton prepares to announce her presidential candidacy. Clinton had been scheduled to appear at the meeting in Marrakech, dubbed the Clinton Global Initiative Middle East and Africa Meeting, on May 5-7. But an official with the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation told POLITICO it’s “unlikely” the former secretary of state will join her husband, Bill. He is still expected at the event, as is Moroccan King Mohammed VI.

The latest Clinton lie – obtained over $7.4 million in Capital gains

First, Hillary sends out Bill to cover her sorry whatever. Sounds Presidential doesn’t it?  Then he goes to Africa with his daughter to demonstrate his “good works” Unfortunately, only about 15 percent of the donations end up in “good works.” In other words, it’s a slush fund. Clinton Foundation placed on charity ‘Watch list’. Even worse, he now lies about his the taxes he pays. Will America drink the Kool-aid again?

Last month, the website The Federalist looked at the Clinton Foundation’s IRS filings for the period between 2008 and 2012. According to its analysis, only 15 percent of the $500 million raised during that span when towards grants for other organizations.

Bill Clinton’s claim that he and Hillary have paid “almost no capital gains” in the past 15 years was put in doubt Monday following reports showing the former first couple booked nearly $400,000 in capital gains between 2000 and 2006.

But a Daily Caller analysis shows the Clintons may have incurred vastly more capital gains than that: between $2 million and $7.4 million.

“Over the last 15 years, I’ve taken almost no capital gains and I’ve given 10 percent away,” Bill Clinton said in an interview with NBC that aired on Monday.

Buzzfeed and The New York Times fact-checked that by analyzing the power couples’ publicly available IRS filings. According to filings for the period between 2000 and 2006 — the only years available — the Clintons reported $371,000 in capital gains, mostly from the sale of property.

But Hillary Clinton’s 2007 Senate financial disclosure report shows the couple may have recorded capital gains as much as 20 times larger than that.

Obama to end school choice program while ‘we need to make sure ‘all children’ get a chance at a great education’

The hypocrisy reaches a new high this week. While few would disagree that education is the ticket to getting out of poverty and Baltimore for that matter, Obama tries again to end the school choice program in D.C. This from the so-called Black President. Here we go:

After having presented a budget to Congress that would phase out a school-choice program that allows a limited number of children to escape Washington, D.C.’s public schools, President Barack Obama delivered a weekly address today that said all Americans have a responsibility to make sure all children—not just their own—get a great education.

(Obama’s two daughters go to Sidwell Friends, one of the most expensive private schools in Washington, D.C.)

“All of us have a responsibility to not only make sure our own children have pathways to success but that all children do,” Obama said, while sitting in a public library in the Anacostia neighborhood of D.C. “And a great education is the ticket to a better life like never before.

“The Obama administration has tried for years to sunset the program, and the president’s fiscal 2013 budget request zeroed out funding for the program, though the proposal was never carried out,” Education Week reported last month.

“The fiscal 2016 budget request includes $43.2 million, down from $45 million last year, and $3.2 million of that must be used to carry out an evaluation of the program,” reported Education Week. “In addition, the proposal specifically states that the money will be made available until it’s all used up, an attempt to sunset the program once again and block new enrollees.”
