Obama State Dept. Spent Tax Dollars To Translate Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” Abroad

What has become of the Congress investigation of James Comey? It seems to have fallen off the earth. Jeff Sessions is out there apparently with little if any interest. Sad when Congress has to nudge Sessions in supporting the Trumpster. Even more interesting was this tidbit that came out  regarding our former Marxist President. If Trump is being charged with Russian interference, how about Obama trying to stir up other countries elections?

“Congressman Steve King released the following video of statements he made during Judiciary Committee debate of legislation requiring the Attorney General to provide copies of any document, record, audio recording, memo, correspondence, or other communication that refers or relates to a number of troubling aspects of James Comey’s tenure as FBI director.”

During his statement made on July 27th, King revealed the State Department under former President Obama gave millions to George Soros-controlled organizations that dedicated part of its funds to translate Saul Alinksy’s ‘Rules for Radicals’ in Macedonian for the purpose of influencing Macedonia’s elections.

 

Congress King speaks on 7/26/17 in support of legislation that requires the Attorney General to turn over documents about former F.B.I. director James Comey’s involvement in several controversial cases. The legislation passed 16-13. King voted in favor of it. Apparently that was the end of that. Mr McConnell? Mr. Ryan? Where are we with this?

 

REP. STEVE KING:

“I just came back not that long ago from the Balkans, where I sat in a place like Macedonia and there I learned that the United States government borrowing money from China and Saudi Arabia had handed over at least $5 millions in contracts transferred through U.S. Aid ID into George Soros organizations that were used to manipulate elections in the Balkans, and that’s just particularly Macedonia – not including the neighboring countries that are there. 

And some of that money was used to translate Saul Alinsky’s ‘Rules for Radicals’ into Macedonian to distribute the book and the ‘Rules for Radicals’ and actions of radicals were manifested in the election efforts in that part of the world.”  T

What is the book ‘Rules for Radicals’? Steel on Steel explains:

The main goal of Alinskyites is to cause social instability through subversive and divisive rhetoric. One method is to control the outcome of the education system by lowering the standards of education so that it creates a dependent class. As adherents to the Cloward-Piven strategy, they use their political platforms to overload a society with social spending programs and class warfare to the point that hatred and division cause social panic. Once they’ve created a problem, they propose themselves as the answer and use wealth transfers and the trumping of rights as the method to bring about “equality”.

Feds investigate Puerto Rico’s aid going astray, not reaching citizens

Trump blasted Mayor Cruz at the time of the Hurricane that struck Puerto Rico that they weren’t pulling their weight. As usual, Trump is proved right again. Now, the Feds are going after the corruption as it is reported that the Mayors were on the take for handing out the supplies. Just hope they get Mayor Cruz, the big mouth.

And while CNN was all too happy to run with a new narrative essentially accusing the White House of racism for its ‘poor’ response in Puerto Rico, a new report from Metro this morning could prove the President was right all along and that it was local mayors hindering disaster recovery efforts on the Caribbean island and not a lack of federal support.

As Metro reports, the U.S. Attorney in San Juan is now opening an investigation into whether or not local mayors around Puerto Rico have been withholding supplies from residents and/or only delivering them to “constituents who had voted for them.”

“This morning we received information from a town on the Island where a person close to the municipal administration was asking one of our federal agents that the supplies that were there could not be touched because they were for his mayor,” said Rodríguez, who then indicated that the case is already being investigated.

He added that he also received confidences from another islander whose official was also keeping supplies for “constituents who had voted for that person.”

“This is not the time to do politics … this is the time to help and to be kind to others. This is a tragedy and nobody should take advantage of the aid,” said Rodriguez, adding that if they manage to prove the indications, the accusations will arrive” no matter which party, or whoever.

While refusing to give specific names, the U.S. Attorney’s office said that “the first is from the (area) north and the other is from the center; and another is the metropolitan area.

Meanwhile, the investigation was launched after Governor Ricardo Rosselló received multiple complaints that supplies delivered by FEMA to some mayors were not reaching citizenship.

“I want everyone who is listening to us to know that that will be investigated in a rigorous way and that we will not give any opportunity,” he told Wapa Radio, the local chief of justice.

 

He reiterated that the aid that has been taken to “mayors and officials is for citizenship and if someone is committing a crime, receiving supplies and using them for their known people that is a crime and will be investigated”.

Sometimes if you want something done right, you just have to do it yourself…

America: Land of the Mindless

 

 

America: Land of the mindless    by Mustang

I recently read an article by David Abel in the Boston Globe that spoke in sympathetic terms about Mr. Victor Ruiz, a 64-year old retired bartender in Puerto Rico, who was forced to wait 35 hours for gasoline.  Ruiz, father of six, is well known for his skill in making Pina Coladas and playing dominos.  Abel writes that Ruiz was a patient man and one who would rather do things for himself and not rely on the help of others.  His four-bedroom home was destroyed by Hurricane Maria, forcing Mr. and Mrs. Ruiz to stay with a daughter.  There is no power or running water, which placed the Ruiz family in the same predicament as everyone else on the island of Corozal.

At some point, Victor noted that their cars (e.g., more than one) began to run low on fuel, which was crucial because without power, Victor needed the use of his car battery to power the machine he uses to treat his emphysema.  So, one morning about a week after the hurricane, Victor took his gasoline canister and walked to a gasoline station a half-mile from his daughter’s house.  There, he waited with others also attempting to get gasoline.  Well, with no power, there won’t be any pumping of gasoline and so Victor and other neighbors waited in the hot sun, in a growing line.  They waited until nightfall, passing the time by playing cards, and eating rice and beans.  Mrs. Ruiz came to relieve him for about a half-hour while Victor took a power nap.

Not long after that, a worker at a nearby propane plant opened a valve that had been damaged by the hurricane, sparking a fire that sent a dark cloud of smoke over the town.  Police ordered Ruiz and others waiting for gas to evacuate the area.

Ruiz lumbered to his wife’s SUV and drove back to his daughter’s house, but upon arrival Victor lost consciousness.  His wife found him dead sitting half inside the vehicle, still wearing his inhaler.

So, okay, what we have here is a tragedy, but not an unforeseen one.  Who doesn’t know that hurricanes are a destructive force of nature?  Who living in Puerto Rico, or anywhere else where hurricanes are known to visit, doesn’t understand that the aftermath of a terrible storm brings weeks of challenges and discomforts?  Who living in such places doesn’t know that preparation for a hurricane is the key to survival?  If you are living along the beach, you must evacuate.  If you are living up to several tens of miles inland, you need to prepare your property for strong winds, heavy rain, and flying debris.  Some of us even have to be watchful for tornadoes.  If we rely on gasoline for power, then we stock up on gasoline; we store it in a safe place.  Or, if we are on breathing apparatus, then we need to evacuate to a community shelter where medical personnel are always nearby.

In the aftermath of a hurricane, or any other natural disaster, there is no magic wand to wave to make everything better again.  Life isn’t like that … so, as I mentioned earlier, preparation is the key.  An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.  Why didn’t Mr. Ruiz prepare for himself and his family in advance of Maria’s arrival?  My guess is that Mr. Ruiz has become mentally dependent upon the government.  The aftermath of a large storm isn’t his problem, it’s the government’s problem —except that we can now see that it was Mr. Ruiz’ problem and no one contributed more to his own demise than he did.

Now let’s extrapolate.  Suppose thoroughly bad people have been able to hack into America’s several electrical grids and let’s say that they are able to shut down the power supply over huge areas of the United States.  Without power, there will be no gasoline for anyone; no one will be able to go to the grocery store and buy food, or water.  Under these circumstances, we can say that it would be the fault of the United States government for the government has done nothing at all to prevent such shenanigans.  Huge populations could be affected and it is my guess that, failing the opportunity to secure cash from an ATM, or obtain gasoline, or food and water, it would not take more than a few days for anarchy to reign … and it wouldn’t be pretty.

So, here are my two points: first, understanding how incompetent the government is, isn’t it time for Americans to stop relying on the government for their total wellbeing?  Second, if Americans aren’t willing to prepare for the worst-case scenario, whether that be terrible storms or enemies of the United States, they have no one to blame for their suffering but themselves.  If we persist in relying on the government to feed us, water us, provide us with power to generate the things we value most, then we are simply mind-numbing stupid.

Where am I wrong about this?

Clinton’s Laureate Education Company – latest scam to hit the news, Execs quit

This latest Clinton reveal is sure to be a headliner in the days to come. I first posted about this back in 2016 as one of the greatest money laundering scams that preyed on the unsuspecting and helped make the Clinton rich. This past February, having plundered as much as they could, it was dreamed up to start an IPO trying to extort even more via the stock market. All of the top executives have quit- within a few months of the IPO. They apparently know more, much more than what has been revealed. The Daily Caller writes a wandering piece, so I have included my earlier post as well. It’s Columbus Day, so if you have a few extra minutes do read the latest update as this reveals in glorious ways just what sociopaths the Clinton’s are:

Top Executives Ditch Clinton’s Laureate Education Company  reads the headline. Top executives at a company with ties to former President Bill Clinton called Laureate Education are leaving the firm only months after they launched its IPO.

The Baltimore-based company became an issue during the 2016 presidential election campaign when the public learned it paid Clinton nearly $18 million over a period of five years to serve as a consultant and “honorary chancellor.”

The firm also faced accusations it operated as a “pay-to-play” company by donating between $1 to $5 million to the Clinton Foundation while receiving hundreds of millions of dollars in government funds.Laureate Education has been closely entwined with the Clintons and the Clinton Foundation. In addition to $17.6 million the company paid to Bill Clinton and its donations to the foundation, both the foundation and Laureate have held joint programs. More at  Daily Caller  with latest info

From my previous post: The Clinton’s get rich off of promoting world’s largest for-profit Universit  

While the media is quick to attack Trump and his rebuttal outrage regarding Trump University, Bill Clinton and thus his little lady Hillary as well are getting rich on Bill’s being paid and promoting the world’s largest for-profit University with sharp business practices,…. well, I’m getting ahead of myself. You read the fine points from American Thinker: (Update at the Daily Caller link at end of post)

As accusations swirl around Donald Trump for the complaints filed against Trump University, few people know about how Bill Clinton was hired in 2010 to be Chancellor for the Laureate Network, the world’s largest for-profit university network.

Not just Bill Clinton but other Clinton friends from the past were hired to promote the university.  Investors in the vast multinational university include Henry Kravis, George Soros, Steve Cohen and Paul Allen.  One of the investors in Laureate University, SAC Capital Advisors LP, is a hedge fund that had to pay a $1.2 billion dollar settlement to the US Dept. of Justice to settle allegations of insider trading.

One student named Larissa Da Silva complains that when she enrolled in IBMR, a Brazilian branch of Laureate, the admissions officer promised her a 30 percent discount on tuition.  Two years later the deal evaporated and her monthly tuition cost jumped to 791 reais.  She summarized the change of policy by stating “I feel completely deceived.”  Apparently the fine print states that grants and tuition discounts may be temporary, so it’s her fault for not lawyering up before she enrolled in the Clinton-promoted college.

Bill Clinton has personally been paid to make appearances promoting Laureate University in countries such as Malaysia, Peru and Spain.  By January 2014 Laureate University had 800,000 students worldwide and its annual revenue was $4 billion, far larger than the revenues of Trump University.

Laureate has taken over struggling colleges by using high-pressure marketing tactics such as “turbocharging enrollment” using students as telemarketers.  Laureate University was investigated by the Rio State Legislature’s Investigative Commission on Private Universities in Brazil.   Robson Leite, a Rio state legislator who led the probe concluded:  “They have turned education into a commodity that focuses more on profit than knowledge”

What voters may soon realize is that every time the media attack Donald Trump for something, it turns out that the Clintons were involved first, to a far greater extent.  This also proves what Trump has been saying; that the media are very dishonest and focus only on him.

Trump gives a win to ‘Little Sisters of the Poor’, Others, negates birth control, sterilization mandate

How easy it is to forget what an out of control administration we had with Obama. Even though The Little Sisters of the Poor appeared to have won the battle in the Supreme Court, Obama had his pen and overrode it. So here is a reminder with the clip of the Nuns. Let us hope Trump finds his pen and this is the beginning of his attack on Obamacare.

Am I the only one who recalls all of the thousands of waivers that were handed out in the beginning of the implementation of Obamacare? If you had the right connections for your business, no problem. We thought we had a win with Hobby Lobby at the Supreme Court. And we did . But guess what Obama did with that damnable pen of his? Hobby Lobby Employees Will Get Birth Control Under A New Rule That Sidesteps Supreme Court’s Decision. Obama overrides the Supreme Court. Apparently, the “Little Sisters of the Poor” did not escape the wrath either, and lost another round with the Tenth Circuit, deeming them not religious enough. Take a look at this moving clip and you tell me if they are not religious enough.

President Donald Trump’s administration announced Friday that it will provide employers with religious or moral objections to providing birth control in their employee health insurance plans an exemption.

The administration’s exemption includes “any non-profit organization that have a religious or moral objection to providing contraception,” a senior Health and Human Services (HHS) official told reporters Friday. The new rule takes effect immediately. In addition to non-profits, the rule applies to “for-profit entities that are publicly traded,” colleges, universities and health insurance companies. The new rule takes effect immediately.

Starting in 2012, Obamacare required employers to provide insurance coverage for contraception at no cost to women. The rule did provide a caveat for churches and even tried to extend that to religiously-oriented groups. Religious groups rejected the offer and filed a number of lawsuits, which led to 2 Supreme Court cases. SCOTUS ordered that the Obama administration and religious organizations come to an agreement as to how to provide contraceptive coverage at no cost to women, but such an agreement never materialized.

Australians give up 51,000 illegal firearms as 3-month amnesty ends

See how easy how the medicine goes down? You and I know the drill, I don’t have to sell you. But it is good to know how the few Democracies around the world are handling this gun thing. Would Trump please tell the Aussies not to count on us next time the Japanese come knocking on their door step?

Australians turned in 51,000 illegal firearms, ranging from 19th-century weapons to a rocket launcher, during a three-month amnesty that ended on Friday, Reuters reported. Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said the move had helped avert Las Vegas-style mass shootings. The cache represents about a fifth of illegal firearms and will be destroyed. It was Australia’s second amnesty since its worst-ever massacre, when a lone gunman killed 35 people in the island state of Tasmania in 1996. Those who still own such guns face jail time, and the government is pushing for harsher penalties for gun traffickers. H/T:  RT
