Vermont Democrats elect terror-linked FBI investigated Muslim as party chair

When I first caught this story I thought I had picked up some sci-fi thriller set in some far distant planet. But now, the inconceivable is now becoming common place. So this fellow now heads up the Vermont Dem party after a stint as a GOPer.. do catch the full read An FBI-Investigated Islamist Takes Over the Vermont Democrats | Frontpage Mag – Daniel Greenfield. It won’t disappoint:

Vermont Democrats have something else to celebrate besides the creation and failure of the first statewide socialized medicine system in America. Recovering from that glorious triumph, Vermont Democrats have elected their first Muslim state party chairman. Back when Gill was playing a Republican, left-wing media outlets like @Salon were willing to report on his troubling Islamist ties. Not so much now.

The lucky fellow is Faisal Gill who called his victory a rebuke of President Trump. “To have a Muslim and immigrant to be the state party chair sends a really strong message to Trump and his type of politics that this is not where the country is at.”

Gill’s election doesn’t send much of a message about where America is at. But it certainly sends a message about where the Democrats are at.

When revelations first emerged that Faisal Gill had been under FBI surveillance, he blamed Islamophobia. When Snowden’s enemy espionage operation exposed national security documents which were published by left-wing terror apologist Glenn Greenwald and The Intercept, a site whose former writer is now charged with some of the terroristic bomb threats aimed at Jewish centers, Gill’s email appeared on a list of alleged terrorist suspects and supporters, including Al Qaeda leader Anwar Al-Awlaki.

Back when Gill was playing a Republican, courtesy of Grover Norquist, left-wing media outlets like Salon were willing to report on his troubling Islamist ties. But Faisal Gill has been reborn as a supporter of Bernie Sanders and Keith Ellison. The left has become a warm and moist safe space for Islamists. The Salon article which Gill blamed for many of his problems would be nearly inconceivable today. Could anyone really imagine a leftist publication today describing the Muslim Brotherhood as a terror nexus?

Faisal Gill had neglected to mention that he had worked for the American Muslim Council. The AMC was another front for the Muslim Brotherhood. Its founder, Abdul Rahman al-Amoudi, was sent to prison due to an investigation into his involvement in a terrorism plot. Al-Amoudi had been both blatant in expressing his support for terrorism, particularly Hamas, and the need to conceal it.

The policy director for the intelligence division at the Department of Homeland Security had worked for an organization with terror ties. And he had failed to disclose his linkages to that organization.

Read it all at Frontpage and as noted in the already linked article above:

As the author of that Salon.com article, Mary Jacoby noted at the time:

“The ties among Alamoudi, the Muslim Brotherhood andGill help explain why officials are concerned about whether Gill was adequately vetted. These relationships are difficult to understand without immersion in the indictments, court transcripts and case exhibits; the concerned officials said they fear that busy political operatives in the administration simply do not grasp the national-security issues at stake. “There’s an overall denial in the administration that the agenda being pushed by Norquist might be a problem,” one official said. “It’s so absurd that a Grover Norquist person could even be close to something like this. That’s really what’s so insidious.” 

The United States coup d’é·tat is well underway

The vultures are circling. Flynn’s demise is only the beginning. The coup is underway. Make no mistake. Morning Joe is over the top this morning. Hysterical. The drums are beating. Reality has been lost. The coup is underway. Bloomberg has this:

…He was also a fat target for Democrats. Remember Flynn’s breakout national moment last summer was when he joined the crowd at the Republican National Convention from the dais calling for Hillary Clinton to be jailed.

In normal times, the idea that U.S. officials entrusted with our most sensitive secrets would selectively disclose them to undermine the White House would alarm those worried about creeping authoritarianism. Imagine if intercepts of a call between Obama’s incoming national security adviser and Iran’s foreign minister leaked to the press before the nuclear negotiations began? The howls of indignation would be deafening.

In the end, it was Trump’s decision to cut Flynn loose. In doing this he caved in to his political and bureaucratic opposition. Nunes told me Monday night that this will not end well. “First it’s Flynn, next it will be Kellyanne Conway, then it will be Steve Bannon, then it will be Reince Priebus,” he said. Put another way, Flynn is only the appetizer. Trump is the entree. Read the whole thing at Bloomberg

Bill Kristol: “Lazy” White Working Class Should be replaced by “New Americans”

This is why the old guard of the GOP almost took the GOP over the cliff. A link to the hour long interview can be found over at the Daily Caller. The interview didn’t get much better than this clip. Contempt of us worker bees, and a callous disregard was the order of the day. Here tis:

Weekly Standard editor-at-large Bill Kristol said Tuesday afternoon that the white working class should be replaced by immigrants as they have become “decadent, lazy” and “spoiled.”

“Look, to be totally honest, if things are so bad as you say with the white working class, don’t you want to get new Americans in?” Kristol told author Charles Murray during an event hosted by the American Enterprise Institute titled “It Came Apart: What’s Next for a Fractured Culture.” Murray recently wrote a book, entitled “Coming Apart,” which focuses on the cultural separation between the wealthiest and most educated white Americans and the poorest and least educated white Americans.

Not his first brush with this idea. Earlier post: 

Fauxcahontas Warren accuses Trump candidates of lying on applications

Here’s the kicker: Warren lied about being Native American when applying for Professorships at Ivy League Universities. While she berates those who make a few bucks playing the game, it turns out she can play it as well. Fauxcahontas Warren flipped houses, was a GOPer, became a multimillionaire first. The irony cannot be lost that after research, her great-great- great-grandfather was indeed not of Indian origin, but was part of the round-up of the Cherokees. Fauxcahontas Warren ancestor rounded up Cherokees for Trail of Tears. She just might want to think about her own truth before attacking others.

However, Warren, when applying for professorships at Ivy League Universities, told the schools that she had Native American lineage, a claim for which there was no evidence.

The Boston Globe reported in 2012 that Warren had informed university officials she was descended from Native Americans, but it had not played a role in her hiring:

Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren acknowledged for the first time late Wednesday night that she told Harvard University and the University of Pennsylvania that she was Native American, but she continued to insist that race played no role in her recruitment.

“At some point after I was hired by them, I . . . provided that information to the University of Pennsylvania and Harvard,’’ she said in a statement issued by her campaign. “My Native American heritage is part of who I am, I’m proud of it and I have been open about it.’’

Warren’s statement is her first acknowledgment that she identified herself as Native American to the Ivy League schools. While she has said she identified herself as a minority in a legal directory, she has carefully avoided any suggestion during the last month that she took further actions to promote her purported heritage.

When the issue first surfaced last month, Warren said she only learned Harvard was claiming her as a minority when she read it in the Boston Herald.

Warren’s new statement came after the Globe asked her campaign about documents it obtained Wednesday from Harvard’s library showing that the university’s law school began reporting a Native American female professor in federal statistics for the 1992-93 school year, the first year Warren worked at Harvard, as a visiting professor.

Given that Harvard boasted it had a female Native American professor on staff during Warren’s first year on the job, Warren’s claims that she did not lie on her application are dubious at best, but most likely false.

Paul Ryan received a standing ovation from donors after denouncing the views of GOP voters, who are skeptical of so-called “free trade” deals.

Echoing the sentiment of Washington conservatives such as talk radio host Mark Levin, Ryan expressed his concern to donors that the Republican Party has been taken over by progressive populists, who fail to understand the benefits of multinational “free trade” deals.

Ryan told donors that the views of these voters must be “repudiated………

And then we have this:

Rep. Luis Gutierrez’sendorsement of Paul Ryan for Speaker of the House has drawn new attention to Ryan’s two-decade history of pushing for open borders immigration policies. A previously little noticed 2013 video of Ryan and Gutierrez stumping for Sen. Marco Rubio’s amnesty bill—in which the two make a candid pitch for unlimited immigration—shows just how far Ryan is willing to go to push for open borders policies.

In the wide-ranging 53 minute video, which took place in Chicago, both Gutierrez and Ryan outline their shared plan for adopting open borders: that is, a national policy of allowing companies to bring in and hire as many foreign workers as they would like. This “free movement” of people across national boundaries is the centerpiece of the open borders ideology to which Ryan has devoted much of his career.

The real goal is to restrict gun ownership by conservatives?

Attorney General Lynch was on five network shows on Sunday. The last time this happened was Susan Rice spinning the Benghazi video lie. So indeed, what the regime has in mind is editing out the reality of the 9-11 calls. Any mention that the terrible killing of 49 people was an Islamic terrorist. The office of propaganda is in full swing to focus on guns, guns and guns. We have been set up earlier with stories that the right is as dangerous, thus when the government comes knocking at your door it will be more than Islamic terrorists they will be after. First an earlier post, then at the end I will throw in a couple of earlier posts as examples.

West Point Think Tank warns of dangerous “Conservatives”

The report issued this week by the Combating Terrorism Center at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N.Y., is titled “Challengers from the Sidelines: Understanding America’s Violent Far-Right.” And just who are these “Violent Far-Right” folks?

It says anti-federalists “espouse strong convictions regarding the federal government, believing it to be corrupt and tyrannical, with a natural tendency to intrude on individuals’ civil and constitutional rights. Finally, they support civil activism, individual freedoms, and self government. Extremists in the anti-federalist movement direct most their violence against the federal government and its proxies in law enforcement.”

The report also draws a link between the mainstream conservative movement and the violent “far right,” and describes liberals as “future oriented” and conservatives as living in the past.

“The far right represents a more extreme version of conservatism, as its political vision is usually justified by the aspiration to restore or preserve values and practices that are part of the idealized historical heritage of the nation or ethnic community.”

What will put you on the list:

1. Posting things the government doesn’t like onto social media.

Tweeting and posting to Facebook could contribute to getting oneself landed on the no-fly list. According to the 2013 document:

“[P]ostings on social media sites… should not be discounted merely because of the manner in which it was received.”

As the Huffington Post notes, the document contains language to protect Americans “engaging solely in constitutionally protected activities,” meaning that one can freely express themselves, pending no other suspicions.

2. Someone thinks that you are a terrorist — or maybe just does not like you.

If a fellow American so chooses, that individual can submit names they deem to be suspicious, which the federal government must consider until they can determine the legitimacy of the tipster.

3. The government made a mistake.

The federal government is not perfect, and can often make mistakes. Sometimes, those mistakes have resulted in lawsuits.

4. You have the same name as a potential terrorist.

5. Traveling the globe.

If an American likes to travel to exotic locations, they too can be placed on the no-fly list. Areas of the planet that are particularly rife with terrorist activities set off red flags, which can complicate one’s good standing in air travel.

While the average American doesn’t travel to terrorist-heavy countries, many immigrants wish to visit family members. In addition, some professions require overseas travel to dangerous parts of the world, such as journalists and government contractors.

Obama to go after guns of those on Social Security disability

The Social Security Administration has announced the details of a new rule that would bar many receiving federal disability payments from owning firearms.

“The Social Security Administration’s proposal doesn’t require an individual to be adjudicated mentally defective or to pose a risk to himself or others,” Lars Dalesiede, a NRA spokesman, said. “Instead they are set to strip away your constitutional rights just because you meet a set of criteria established by a group of faceless bureaucrats you’ll never meet. That puts thousands of Americans in the terrible position of choosing whether to pay their bills or give up their constitutional rights.”

The group called the president’s push for the new rule “embarrassing and shameful.”

Will taking an anxiety pill let Obama take your guns?

The Obama administration quietly released a press statement,

The Department of Justice is proposing to change rules for the federal background check system to clarify who under U.S. law is prohibited from possessing a firearm because of mental health problems.

…..confirming President Obama will be signing two new executive actions defining who can buy a gun based on mental health issues.

Earlier this year, the State of New York used similar mental health regulations to classify anxiety as a mental health issue. Because of that, anyone who has ever reported feeling anxious could be at risk of losing their 2nd amendment rights. In fact, there are already a number of cases making their way through the court system in New York, where people actually lost their rights because they were prescribed anti-anxiety medications.

Since almost 25% of the population now takes anti-anxiety / depression medications, almost a quarter of the country could be at risk of being labeled mentally unfit to own a firearm, if these same policies take hold at a federal level.

They’ve already started going after Vets with these regulations.

Bill Kristol’s candidate David French says ‘White Working Class Communities deserve to die’

Watch as Bill Kristol the presumptive ass of the GOP makes the dreams of the Dems come to fruition. You think that the GOP represents anyone other than that of the self serving political class? Think no more. Thanks Bill, now go back in your hole

According to new reports, The Weekly Standard’s Bill Kristol wants fellow professional Republican and National Review staff writer, David French, to run an independent presidential campaign.

While Donald Trump has called on the GOP to become a “worker’s party”— a development Sen. Jeff Sessions called for two years ago, ironically, in the pages of the National Review— French has defended the idea that white working-class communities “deserve to die.”

Specifically, French wrote a piece in support of Kevin D. Williamson, who had said:

The truth about these dysfunctional, downscale communities is that they deserve to die. Economically, they are negative assets. Morally, they are indefensible. Forget all your cheap theatrical Bruce Springsteen crap. Forget your sanctimony about struggling Rust Belt factory towns and your conspiracy theories about the wily Orientals stealing our jobs. Forget your goddamned gypsum, and, if he has a problem with that, forget Ed Burke, too. The white American underclass is in thrall to a vicious, selfish culture whose main products are misery and used heroin needles. Donald Trump’s speeches make them feel good. So does OxyContin. What they need isn’t analgesics, literal or political. They need real opportunity, which means that they need real change, which means that they need U-Haul.

French described Williamson’s piece as “excellent” and said that Williamson’s words were “fundamentally true and important to say.”

French went on to dismiss the struggles white working class Americans endure.

“Citizens of the world’s most prosperous nation, they face challenges — of course — but no true calamities,” French wrote.

While French suggests that the decline of America’s middle class and manufacturing power is no true calamity, others could argue that the greater a nation or culture, the more sorrowful it is to witness its decline — much the same way that history would mourn the destruction of the Palace of Versailles more than the totaling of Justin Bieber’s car.

French insists that the devastation of the working-class’ livelihoods is unrelated to failed federal policies such as mass immigration:

[I] have seen the challenges of the white working-class first-hand. Simply put, Americans are killing themselves and destroying their families at an alarming rate. No one is making them do it. The economy isn’t putting a bottle in their hand. Immigrants aren’t making them cheat on their wives or snort OxyContin. Obama isn’t walking them into the lawyer’s office to force them to file a bogus disability claim.

French, instead, suggests that the decimation of these communities is due to the laziness of the American worker…
