Demonology: Why Does The West Seem To Work In Concert With Islam to Bring About It's Own Destruction?

Some thoughts on Islam and it's malignant effects, from one of our commenters:

The core of this issue is spiritual, and it challenges secular westerners. Either there is a God, that is the God of the Bible or there isn't. And either Satan exists or he doesn't. And either there is a spiritual war being waged by proxy through human agents here on earth or there isn't. 

What percent of readers of this article even care about God let alone understand what God wants in their lives? I would imagine only a minority. Yet, clearly we are entering a time when, as was said about Stalin, you may not be interested in Islam , but Islam is interested in you. 

Islam intends to impose upon all people in the west its Three Demands: convert, submit or die. 

The deity of Islam is not the God who is revealed in the Bible. This "allah" is from Satan. Even if you deny that there is a God, this demonic "allah" through Islam intents on forcing you to convert to Islam, to submit to Islam, or to die while resisting Islam. Islam intends upon visiting upon the west the utmost of horrors in order to "strike fear into the hearts of the unbeliever", in order to make you so fearful of Islam that you cannot and will not resist it. It is the sacred duty of all Muslims to make this happen.

The only way to understand this is to understand that this is in fact a spiritual proxy war through human agents. If Halal is in fact "sacrificing to idols", then it cannot matter unless there really is a God and it really matters what humanity worships. And make no mistake, even an overtly secular person has spiritual values and worships spirits, even though they appear to be Progressive values, like Gia worship of the planet's environment. People who advocate "global warming" act with religious fervor for a reason. People who seek "social justice" act with religious fervor for a reason. People who advocate abortion, infanticide and feminism act with religious fervor for a reason. People who seek "the socialist revolution" act with religious fervor for a reason. 

The time to choose is coming upon us all. The Bible is clear: when people worship idols, they are really worshipping the demonic spirit that projects the ideals that people have about that idol. The Book of Daniel tells us in chapter 12 that the only nation on earth that is protected by an angel are the descendants of the nations of Israel. The rest of the nations on earth are overseen by a "prince", meaning a demonic power.

The only way out of this is for a person to come to know God. He is the only protection from demonic powers. That is why Islam is "hell bent" upon conquering the west. That is exactly why secular progressives in the west find common cause with Islam to suppress every aspect of even the legacy of the founding Judaeo-Christian culture. 

Again, all this is utter foolishness if there is no God and if there is no Satan. But then what the hell are we seeing being played out before our very eyes? 

Daniel 10:13 refers to the "prince of the Kingdom of Persia" who opposed the angel who appeared to Daniel from acting for 21 days. This opposition was overcome with the help of the angel Michael. 

Notice the next verse. This is a direct mention of spirit powers influencing human leaders of nations for good or for evil. 

When you see otherwise rational leaders making, defending and sticking with clearly irrational policy decisions that take their societies in a totally destructive direction, and colluding with other leaders who seem "hell-bent" on doing the same thing, how else can you explain this given verses like Daniel 10:13?

How else can we explain the otherwise irrational immigration policy of people like Merkel, where a injecting a million Muslim "refugees" is not still not enough? I think that even IBA has carried this story.

Now of course, not all moonbattery is spiritual influence. To think so itself is irrational. But we do have events that have an "other-worldly" appearance. For example, how do you rationally explain the totally irrational MSM fixation on Russia, Russia, Russia, so much so that I call this the "current madness"? And when you see a long chain of totally improbable events all working towards an even greater improbable success, maybe in serious fact you are in deed seeing something "other-worldly". 

We could go back in history to ask, what collective madness took over the German people when they fawned over Adolph Hitler? Or that would also cause over 95% of Austrians to vote for Hitler when they had the chance? Or that the 9/11/2001 attackers wers so wildly successful at reaching their important targets?

For me the weight of the evidence is that we are seeing spiritual warfare via human proxies. One of those proxies is Islam. Another is post-modernist Progressivism. 

The Bible is clear: for the time being, Satan is the deity of this world. When people worship any other thing except the True God, they are worshipping Satan. The only people who are not subject to his influence are people for whom God offers protection. Even people who consider themselves to be nominal Christian can be influenced. Recall the sobering words of Jesus who spoke directly face to face with one of his disciples (Luke 22:31) "Simon, Simon, behold, Satan has desired you, that he may sift you as wheat. "

But it gets even more serious. Notice what he said to the Pharisees: (John 8:44):

"You are of the Devil as father, and the lusts of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and did not abide in the truth because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own, for he is a liar and the father of it. "

There is nothing new under the sun. The very words of Jesus tells us that some people on earth, today, as I write this, are also the willing proxy agents of the devil. They are of the Devil, who is their (spiritual) father. And they will do the things that the devil lusts to have done in the affairs of men. If you believe that Jesus was the Son of God, then you must believe his words. He didn't say a single thing that was frivolous. He didn't cause anything to be written for His future followers that was vacuous or a fairy story. He was deadly serious and we are approaching a deadly serious time in human history. It is a time to give the events in the news very close and rational examination. 

Revelation 14:22 Here is the patience of the saints. Here are the ones who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus. 

Mat 6:13  And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil (the evil one): For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. 

Mat 13:19 When anyone hears the Word of the kingdom and does not understand it, then the wicked one comes and catches away that which was sown in his heart. This is the seed sown by the wayside.

Report: Pence And A Dozen Trump Cabinet Members Attend Weekly Bible Study

Several members of President Donald Trump’s cabinet regularly attend a Bible study in Washington, D.C., according to the pastor who leads the meetings. 
“It’s the best Bible study that I’ve ever taught in my life. They are so teachable; they’re so noble; they’re so learned,” the leader of the study, pastor Ralph Drollinger, former NBA player and founder of Capitol Ministries, told the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN). 
About a dozen leaders, including cabinet members, attend the weekly study. Vice President Mike Pence plans to attend as his schedule permits, and Trump receives a copy of Drollinger’s lessons, according to CBN. 
The Bible study’s most faithful attendees include Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue, Energy Secretary Rick Perry and CIA Director Mike Pompeo. 
Drollinger claims a formal Bible study like has not happened in the capital, with such high-profile leaders, in more than a century. 
“These are godly individuals that God has risen to a position of prominence in our culture,” Drollinger said.

CAIR Organizes Nationwide Protests Against Israel Over Metal Detectors at Temple Mt. – Just Like in Mecca

In Mecca, Saudi Arabia there are more than 5,000 CCTV cameras and over 100,000 people employed to provide security during the annual Hajj.

Metal detectors are not a problem in Mecca.

But there are no Jews there, so no one complains.

This is just the latest example of Israel being held to a different standard.

China buys record North Korean coal as sanctions ignored

From the Daily Mail:
LAUNCESTON, Australia, Sept 26 (Reuters) - It appears that China is interpreting the "people's well-being" as meaning North Korea should be able to export record amounts of coal in defiance of sanctions against the rogue nuclear-armed state. 
China imported 2.465 million tonnes of coal from North Korea in August, the highest on record, and 61 percent above what was bought in April, the month sanctions were supposed to take effect. 
Tougher measures were imposed by the United Nations in March aimed at starving North Korea of funds for its nuclear and ballistic missile programme. China said at the time it would ban imports of gold and rare earths, as well as coal. 
While coal imports from North Korea did slip in April to 1.527 million tonnes from March's 2.345 million, they have been steadily trending higher since then to reach August's record. 
Some exemptions were to be allowed for imports from North Korea for the what was translated as "the people's well-being," or "livelihood purposes."

Minnesota Public Schools To Segregate Students Who Object To Transgender Guidelines

Minnesota’s Department of Education has released an advisory to all K-12 schools to “segregate” students who raise objections to the state’s new mandate for transgender locker rooms and bathrooms. 
Earlier this month, state officials approved of a new gender toolkit titled “Safe and Supportive Schools for Transgender and Gender Nonconforming Students” aimed at making “non-binary” and transgender students feel welcome from kindergarten through 12th grade. 
The toolkit also calls for segregating students concerned with their privacy away from transgender students so it “does not result in stigmatizing the transgender or gender nonconforming student.” 
According to the Minnesota Star Tribune, the toolkit isn’t mandatory, and is subject to change in the future, but schools are advised to follow it anyway. 
At present, the toolkit will not prevent a male student from stepping into the girl’s locker room while claiming to be transgender. 
Instead, female students who object to the intrusion will be “segregated” so the male student does not feel stigmatized. 
Furthermore, schools are instructed to provide transgender students the privilege of choosing their own preferred gender pronouns, and staff are not merely encouraged, but advised to oblige their demands. 
Teachers who fail to address these students by their chosen pronouns are warned that they could be in violation of federal law. 
“Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) protects the privacy of students,” the toolkit advises. “Schools should note that neither a student’s gender nor pronouns are considered public or directory information. Casual use of a student’s incorrect pronoun or incorrect name may violate FERPA.”

U.S. Says Time for Talk On North Korea, OVER!

From AFP:
Nikki Haley, the US envoy to the United Nations, said there was "no point" in holding a fruitless emergency Security Council session, warning that another weak council resolution would be "worse than nothing" in light of the North's repeated violations. 
The US Senate passed new bipartisan sanctions on Pyongyang on Friday. Haley urged China, Japan and South Korea to tighten the screws on Pyongyang. 
"An additional Security Council resolution that does not significantly increase the international pressure on North Korea is of no value," she said in a statement late Sunday. 
"It sends the message to the North Korean dictator that the international community is unwilling to seriously challenge him. "China must decide whether it is finally willing to take this vital step. The time for talk is over."  
The latest ICBM test "poses a seemingly tangible threat to the national security of the US", said Jeung Young-Tae, director of military studies at Dongyang University in South Korea. 
"Now the US will see no point in negotiation, which only helps Pyongyang earn more time to develop its weapons programmes," he said. 
"Whether we want it or not, the risk of unilateral military action by the US cannot be ruled out at this point."
Earlier, Trump warned that he would not allow China -- the impoverished North's sole major ally and economic lifeline -- to "do nothing" about Pyongyang. 
In two tweets Trump linked trade strains with the Asian giant -- marked by a trade deficit of $309 billion last year -- to policy on North Korea, after South Korea indicated it could speed up the deployment of a US missile defence system that has infuriated China. 
"I am very disappointed in China. Our foolish past leaders have allowed them to make hundreds of billions of dollars a year in trade, yet they do NOTHING for us with North Korea, just talk," Trump wrote. 
"We will no longer allow this to continue. China could easily solve this problem!"

Why Did The Obama's Need Electronics Moving Specialists to Move Out of the White House?

"MOVING MASTERS, INC., It's your Move, Call the Masters" "Quality in Electronic & Office Moving"

An Anonymous commenter provides the following observations, analysis, and commentary:
This company logo specifically mentions they specialize in moving "electronic" items. I'm not aware of any other prior occupants of the oval office removing electronic equipment by specialized carriers. This, admittedly, could be nothing - but that image just stuck with me - particularly because of his efforts to allow intel to move between agencies by his decree just prior to his leaving office.
IIRC, There also was a lot of additional construction taking place within the WH nearly the entire span of time he was in office.
Given all the leaks within the current administration, and electronic technology expanding - all that construction - Obama's latent intel legislation - the hiring of a specialized moving company/a mid size box truck to the WH during the transition - advertising it's Electronic specialty - can't help but question if any/all is related.

I have no technical or electronic 'know-how', but in my household, I've had tinkerers who enjoyed building their own gaming systems. Often parts would arrive in the mail wrapped in special envelopes which resist static.
Also, I learned the hard way that magnets are the nemesis of some electronic related items. In the past, I erased all my credit cards by placing a business card printed on a refrigerator magnet into my wallet.

I'm sure there are other reasons, but those are two issues which readily come to mind.

For shits and giggles, let me add this little gem from memory lane to the conversation:

Maxine Waters boasts about Obama Database video

Yes, static and magnets are enemies of electronics. So is heat, but heat wouldn't have been a factor in January.

I wonder what type of and how much electronic equipment was moved out of the White House in January 2017. Fragile monitors, certainly.

I can't imagine that the Obama administration left behind any electronic equipment.

Now, remember, the Awan's were "IT Specialists". They had control over the Blackberries, laptops and desktop computers of 30 Congresspeople, including DNC head, Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
In today's first video by George Webb he lets loose another speculation which raises concern...

"...Actual Verizon and AT&T Blackberry stores may also have been compromised over the last twelve years"

Now, Webb is referring specifically to the stores within the Capitol which he visited and filmed offering these blackberry phone options.

On the other hand - not connected to AwanGate - I couldn't help but consider all the phone stores I've visited to upgrade cell phones over the last dozen years. How many of these stores are operated by foreign nationals - particularly by ME types? 
Here, in NY I cannot identify a single store which isn't operated by ME types. Not sure about the rest of the country but this is not a reassuring situation. 
It's not like going out for Chinese and being served by oriental staff. We are not importing these devices from the ME .


CTO = Chief Technology Officer - Obama was the First President to have one 
Aneesh Chopra was the first appointed CTO of the White House. Aneesh Chopra: Virginia Secretary of Technology In 2006, Virginia Governor Tim Kaine appointed Chopra as the commonwealth’s Secretary of Technology. His service continued until his appointment as U.S. Chief Technology Officer in 2009. Chopra spearheaded a number of innovations in state government, including the creation of a Productivity Innovation Fund which provided resources for state agencies to pursue IT projects to improve efficiency.[9] In 2008 Chopra implemented a statewide performance management strategy, that Governing magazine described as “venture governmentalism.” Later that year, the Pew Charitable Trust and Governing Magazine announced Virginia was tied as the “best managed state” in the country.[10] U.S. Chief Technology Officer[edit] Chopra's appointment as the first Chief Technology Officer of the United States was announced by the White House on April 18, 2009. From the official release: “[a]s Chief Technology Officer, Chopra will promote technological innovation to help the country meet its goals from job creation, to reducing health care costs, to protecting the homeland.”[11] Chopra was confirmed by the United States Senate on August 7, 2009. The office of Chief Technology Officer was organized within the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. The C.T.O. also serves as a cabinet-rank member of the National Economic Council and the Domestic Policy Council.
Aneesh Chopra now has his own company Hunch Analytics: Aneesh is the former (and first) U.S. Chief Technology Officer. As an Assistant to the President, he designed the National Wireless Initiative, helped launch Startup America, and executed an “open innovation” strategy across the government built on private sector collaboration – opening up data, convening on standards and staffing “lean government startups.” He is the author of the book, “Innovative State: How New Technologies can Transform Government” focused on how the country can tap entrepreneurial problem solvers to address challenges in health, energy and education markets among other public and regulated sectors. In 2011, Chopra was named to Modern Healthcare’s list of the 100 Most Influential People in Healthcare (#39) and in 2008, to Government Technology magazine’s Top 25 in their Doers, Dreamers, and Drivers issue. Chopra earned his master’s degree in public policy from Harvard University, and his bachelor’s degree from The Johns Hopkins University. You can find out more about Aneesh at this site.

CareJourney founded by investment from Hunch Analytics: CareJourney was founded in 2014 with an investment from Hunch Analytics under the belief that open data and standard APIs will bring about a revolution in population health analytics. At a very early stage we harnessed these trends to provide our members with actionable insights to improve the quality of care and reduce costs for their patients. We are based in Arlington, VA.
Hunch Analytics helps health care and education providers make smarter decisions ByDale Keiger / Published Fall 2014 "Aneesh Chopra became the nation's first chief technology officer in 2009. Much of his work focused on the use of big data to inform big decisions. He noticed something then that he continues to see today: When it comes to making major decisions, there are two camps. One consists of people who believe intuition trumps analysis—go with your gut. The other rejects intuition in favor of careful data analysis—where there is enough data, there's no need for intuition." "In health care and education, he points out, outcomes data, often collected by government and made increasingly available, are becoming ever more important. For example, the Affordable Care Act has mandated a change from hospitals working on a fee-for-service basis to more of a fee-for-outcomes system. There will be a premium on making people well and keeping them well because hospitals will be reimbursed at a much lower rate for patients who bounce back within weeks of their initial treatment. A hospital like Johns Hopkins has internal data on everyone who has been admitted. But there's a vast trove of external data, Chopra says, that if properly analyzed can help management identify ways to keep populations healthier. For example, Medicare patients can download three years of their personal health care data through the Medicare website. This data set is called a "blue button file" because of the website button that beneficiaries click to obtain it."
Enter Affordable Care Act: Chopra touts new era of entrepreneurship "Today is the best time to be a healthcare entrepreneur in America." By Mike MiliardFebruary 20, 201103:29 PM Chopra – alongside Deputy National Coordinator Farzad Mostashari, MD, and VA Chief Technology Officer Peter Levin – was speaking as part of the Health IT Venture Fair & Strategic Partner Forum. He was there to discuss how the HITECH and Affordable Care Acts are driving innovation opportunities in the private sector. Specifically, he meant to show how the government can create a better climate for market-driven health improvements through technology. As national CTO, Chopra reports to President Barack Obama, who has enacted a three-pronged approach to innovation: Invest in the "building blocks of innovation," R&D and human capital, to out-educate and out-innovate America' economic competitors around the world. Set the right conditions for market-based innovation, catalyzing entrepreneurship through programs such as the new Startup America Partnership and via policy initiatives like the simplification of the Research & Experimentation tax credit and the modernization the U.S. Patent Office. Foster an "all hands on deck" approach to R&D and standards, convening many different players to inspire new products and services.
Chopra cited recent funding for programs like the national wireless initiative and pointed to a $3 billion innovation fund that would go after basic R&D for security and reliability and engineering to make sure "wireless communication can be fully leveraged in our healthcare ecosystem." Of that money, he said, $100 million is earmarked for healthcare application innovation. In addition to Startup America, a nonprofit public-private initiative, Chopra lauded programs like the "DC to VC: Investing in Healthcare IT Summit," which saw participation by the ONC and companies such as Practice Fusion and Vocera. One recent object lesson? The NHIN Direct Project, which saw dozens of vendors – some of them competitors – working in tandem with the ONC and other parties to establish a simple and secure way to send encrypted health information between two parties. The open collaborative – anyone was allowed to participate – was announced in March of 2010. Consensus was reached on the technical specifications soon after. Just 90 days later, the first of several firms announced they'd commercialize the spec. The program went live in January, and as of today, 50 organizations have announced their support of the Direct protocol. "This will be," Chopra said, "one of the fastest protocols to go from concept to execution." And if the public and private sectors continue to focus on R&D collaboration and open-standards philosophy, he said, "this is the best time to be an entrepreneur."
National Wireless Initiative (Chopra under Obama Administration) Policies promoting wireless broadband in the United States From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Redirected from National Wireless Initiative) Policies promoting wireless broadband are policies, rules, and regulations supporting the "National Wireless Initiative", a plan to bring wireless broadband Internet access to 98% of Americans.[1] Spectrum is limited and much of it already in use. This raises the issue of space and strength of supporting the network. The infrastructure has to reach across the entire United States in areas that normally do not have Internet access. The main concept is to bring wireless service to residents in areas that may otherwise not have access to it.[2] The public's interest in this plan is important as the people are the ones who will utilize this service. Network neutrality raises issues on freedom of information and who will have control over how the information is released, or even lack of control.

Oh, and by the way . . .
George Webb surmises that the DCCC and DNC intentionally hired foreign nationals or citizens of foreign nationalities to
work in IT during the Obama campaigns specifically for the talents as well as to operate as ‘ethnic human shields’ to
block any criticism of questionable tactics.

Why I Despise Collective Guilt

True story....

Back when I was teaching elementary school, a biracial 4th grader who was actually 5th grade age (I'll call him C) responded to my query as to why he failed the weekly spelling test with the following cop out:

"I failed my spelling test because your ancestors held my ancestors as slaves."

AOW: "Wrong!  My father's family objected to slavery on principle and never held slaves. My mother's family lived on land that wouldn't sprout black-eyed peas, so never even considered acquiring a slave. You failed your spelling test because you didn't study.  Man up!"

I'm proud to say that, some three decades later, C and I are in touch via Facebook. He decries his stupidity of all those years ago.  Yes, we have discussed this specific incident.

And, C has thanked me for holding him personally accountable five hours a week, 180 days a year for three years.  His father had walked out, and his mother was undergoing treatment for breast cancer; nobody else was around to hold C responsibility for his own actions.  What a round of tough love we went through! 

Today, C is a wonderful, albeit strict, father and extremely successful in his field (computer systems, one of which is used by one of the big hospitals here).  Oh, and he's politically conservative.

Children as young as three are visiting doctors because they are confused about their gender, experts say

From Daily Mail:
GIDS said 1,986 people under 18 were referred for specialist treatment this year 
94 were referred seven years ago and seven three year olds have been referred 
Experts say this is due to a rise in acceptance and knowledge about specialist clinics
No, it's because perversion and mental illness are being mainstreamed by Gramscian Leftists intent on destroying Western Civilization.


Australia’s Halal Chief Says White Women Need To Be Fertilized By Muslim Men

From the Daily Caller:
Mohamed Elmouelhy, the head of Australia’s Halal Certification Authority, publicly commented on Facebook to state that white Australian women need Muslim men to fertilize them and “keep them surrounded by Muslim babies.” 
Elmouelhy’s intolerant views led him to declare that the “white race will be extinct” in 40 years. 
The certification chief, who immigrated to Australia in 1975 and became a citizen in 1981, made his comments in response to a study in Human Reproduction Update from Israeli researchers in Hebrew University, which revealed declining fertility rates among men in North America, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. 
Based on 43,000 men, the scientists found that a high proportion of men in Western countries had sperm counts below the threshold for infertility. 
“According to the Hebrew University, Australian men sperm count has declined by 52 per cent over the last 40 years so your men are a dying breed, Australian women need us to fertilise them and keep them surrounded by Muslim babies while beer swilling, cigarette smoking, drug injecting can only dream of what Muslim men are capable of,” wrote Elmouelhy in a comment on Facebook that was first reported by the Daily Mail. 
“If the country is left to the bigots the white race will be extinct in another 40 years,” he continued. “Muslims have a duty to make your women happy because you are declining, better go chose a plot for yourself at your local cemetery. If you can’t afford it, commit suicide it is a cheaper alternative for bigots.” 
“It will [sic] mandatory for all women to wear hijab or burka if they prefer, bikinis will be displayed in Museums but not on nubile bodies anymore,” he continued. 
“When that happens everything in Australia will be Halal certified. Bigots and pigs will be declared Haram and must not be approached or touched, they can live together in reserves. There will be a Halal butcher on every corner, all other butchers will be offered to convert to Halal or given a passage back to where their ancestors came from.”


Australian Police Disrupt Plot to Bring Down an Airliner

From the AP:
CANBERRA, Australia (AP) — Police disrupted a terrorist plot to bring down an airplane and arrested four men on Saturday in raids on homes in several Sydney suburbs, the prime minister said. 
Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said on Sunday that security had been increased at Sydney Airport since Thursday because of the plot. The increased security measures had been extended to all major international and domestic terminals around Australia overnight. 
"I can report last night that there has been a major joint counterterrorism operation to disrupt a terrorist plot to bring down an airplane," Turnbull told reporters. "The operation is continuing." 
Australian Federal Police Commissioner Andrew Colvin said details were scant on the specifics of the attack, the location and timing. 
"In recent days, law enforcement has been become aware of information that suggested some people in Sydney were planning to commit a terrorist attack using an improvised devise," Colvin said. 
"We are investigating information indicating the aviation industry was potentially a target of that attack," he added. Australia's terrorist threat level remained unchanged at "probable," Turnbull said. 
Turnbull advised travelers in Australia to arrive at Australian airports earlier than usual — two hours before departure — to allow for extra security screening and to minimize baggage. 
"We believe it's Islamic-inspired terrorism," Colvin said when asked if the Islamic State group was behind the plot. 
The plot was the 13th significant threat disrupted by police since Australia's terrorist threat level was elevated in 2014, Justice Minister Michael Keenan said. 
Five plots have been executed.

Andrew McCarthy On Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the Pakistani IT Scammers

From Andrew McCarthy:
In Washington, it’s never about what they tell you it’s about. So take this to the bank: The case of Imran Awan, Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s mysterious Pakistani IT guy, is not about bank fraud. 
Yet bank fraud was the stated charge on which Awan was arrested at Dulles Airport this week, just as he was trying to flee the United States for Pakistan, via Qatar. That is the same route taken by Awan’s wife, Hina Alvi, in March, when she suddenly fled the country, with three young daughters she yanked out of school, mega-luggage, and $12,400 in cash. 
By then, the proceeds of the fraudulent $165,000 loan they’d gotten from the Congressional Federal Credit Union had been sent ahead. It was part of a $283,000 transfer that Awan managed to wire from Capitol Hill. 
He pulled it off — hilariously, if infuriatingly — by pretending to be his wife in a phone call with the credit union. Told that his proffered reason for the transfer (“funeral arrangements”) wouldn’t fly, “Mrs.” Awan promptly repurposed: Now “she” was “buying property.” 
Asking no more questions, the credit union wired the money . . . to Pakistan. 
As you let all that sink in, consider this: Awan and his family cabal of fraudsters had access for years to the e-mails and other electronic files of members of the House’s Intelligence and Foreign Affairs Committees. 
It turns out they were accessing members’ computers without their knowledge, transferring files to remote servers, and stealing computer equipment — including hard drives that Awan and Co. smashed to bits of bytes before making tracks. U 
They were fired in February. All except Awan, that is. He continued in the employ of Wasserman Schultz, the Florida Democrat, former DNC chairwoman, and Clinton crony. She kept him in place at the United States Congress right up until he was nabbed at the airport on Monday. 
This is not about bank fraud. The Awan family swindles are plentiful, but they are just window-dressing. This appears to be a real conspiracy, aimed at undermining American national security. 
At the time of his arrest, the 37-year-old Imran Awan had been working for Democrats as an information technologist for 13 years. He started out with Representative Gregory Meeks (D., N.Y.) in 2004. The next year, he landed on the staff of Wasserman Schultz, who had just been elected to the House. 
Congressional-staff salaries are modest, in the $40,000 range. For some reason, Awan was paid about four times as much. He also managed to get his wife, Alvi, on the House payroll . . . then his brother, Abid Awan . . . then Abid’s wife, Natalia Sova. The youngest of the clan, Awan’s brother Jamal, came on board in 2014 — the then-20-year-old commanding an annual salary of $160,000. 
A few of these arrangements appear to have been sinecures: While some Awans were rarely seen around the office, we now know they were engaged in extensive financial shenanigans away from the Capitol. 
Nevertheless, the Daily Caller’s Luke Rosiak, who has been all over this story, reports that, for their IT “work,” the Pakistani family has reeled in $4 million from U.S. taxpayers since 2009. 
That’s just the “legit” dough. 
The family business evidently dabbles in procurement fraud, too. The Capitol Police and FBI are exploring widespread double-billing for computers, other communication devices, and related equipment. 
Why were they paid so much for doing so little? Intriguing as it is, that’s a side issue. A more pressing question is: Why were they given access to highly sensitive government information? 
Ordinarily, that requires a security clearance, awarded only after a background check that peruses ties to foreign countries, associations with unsavory characters, and vulnerability to blackmail. 
These characters could not possibly have qualified. Never mind access; it’s hard to fathom how they retained their jobs. 
The Daily Caller has also discovered that the family, which controlled several properties, was involved in various suspicious mortgage transfers. 
Abid Awan, while working “full-time” in Congress, ran a curious auto-retail business called “Cars International A” (yes, CIA), through which he was accused of stealing money and merchandise. In 2012, he discharged debts in bankruptcy (while scheming to keep his real-estate holdings). 
Congressional Democrats hired Abid despite his drunk-driving conviction a month before he started at the House, and they retained him despite his public-drunkenness arrest a month after. Beyond that, he and Imran both committed sundry vehicular offenses. 
In civil lawsuits, they are accused of life-insurance fraud. 
Democrats now say that any access to sensitive information was “unauthorized.” But how hard could it have been to get “unauthorized” access when House Intelligence Committee Dems wanted their staffers to have unbounded access? 
In 2016, they wrote a letter to an appropriations subcommittee seeking funding so their staffers could obtain “Top Secret — Sensitive Compartmented Information” clearances. TS/SCI is the highest-level security classification. 
Awan family members were working for a number of the letter’s signatories. Democratic members, of course, would not make such a request without coordination with leadership. 
Did I mention that the ranking member on the appropriations subcommittee to whom the letter was addressed was Debbie Wasserman Schultz? Why has the investigation taken so long? Why so little enforcement action until this week? Why, most of all, were Wasserman Schultz and her fellow Democrats so indulgent of the Awans? 
The probe began in late 2016. In short order, the Awans clearly knew they were hot numbers. They started arranging the fraudulent credit-union loan in December, and the $283,000 wire transfer occurred on January 18. 
In early February, House security services informed representatives that the Awans were suspects in a criminal investigation. At some point, investigators found stolen equipment stashed in the Rayburn House Office Building, including a laptop that appears to belong to Wasserman Schultz and that Imran was using. 
Although the Awans were banned from the Capitol computer network, not only did Wasserman Schultz keep Imran on staff for several additional months, but Meeks retained Alvi until February 28 — five days before she skedaddled to Lahore. 
Strange thing about that: On March 5, the FBI (along with the Capitol Police) got to Dulles Airport in time to stop Alvi before she embarked. It was discovered that she was carrying $12,400 in cash. 
As I pointed out this week, it is a felony to export more than $10,000 in currency from the U.S. without filing a currency transportation report. It seems certain that Alvi did not file one: 
In connection with her husband’s arrest this week, the FBI submitted to the court a complaint affidavit that describes Alvi’s flight but makes no mention of a currency transportation report. Yet far from making an arrest, agents permitted her to board the plane and leave the country, notwithstanding their stated belief that she has no intention of returning. 
Many congressional staffers are convinced that they’d long ago have been in handcuffs if they pulled what the Awans are suspected of. Nevertheless, no arrests were made when the scandal became public in February. 
For months, Imran has been strolling around the Capitol. In the interim, Wasserman Schultz has been battling investigators: demanding the return of her laptop, invoking a constitutional privilege (under the speech-and-debate clause) to impede agents from searching it, and threatening the Capitol Police with “consequences” if they don’t relent. 
Only last week, according to Fox News, did she finally signal willingness to drop objections to a scan of the laptop by federal investigators. Her stridency in obstructing the investigation has been jarring.  
But Samina Gilani, the Awan brothers’ stepmother, begs to differ. Gilani complained to Virginia police that the Awans secretly bugged her home and then used the recordings to blackmail her. She averred in court documents that she was pressured to surrender cash she had stored in Pakistan. I 
mran claimed to be “very powerful” — so powerful he could order her family members kidnapped. We don’t know if these allegations are true, but they are disturbing. 
The Awans have had the opportunity to acquire communications and other information that could prove embarrassing, or worse, especially for the pols who hired them. Did the swindling staffers compromise members of Congress? 
Does blackmail explain why were they able to go unscathed for so long? And as for that sensitive information, did the Awans send American secrets, along with those hundreds of thousands of American dollars, to Pakistan? 
This is no run-of-the-mill bank-fraud case.

Also consider Obama's final acts to ensure said access the Awans (as well as any other Obama hold-overs) were afforded not be interfered with/interrupted once Trump took over the oval office:

Jan. 12: Obama expands the NSA's ability to share data with other agencies

Jan 20: Obama’s final act as president promises more tech talent in Washington

Ted Cruz: "No Party can stay in power by lying to the American people"

I'm not as optimistic as Senator Cruz that the constituents will persuade the betraying senators to get the show on the road.

From where I'm sitting, I'm hearing the peasants beyond the moat say that they are done with career politicians. And Senator Cruz's words in the video below — particularly the words unfortunately and in time — don't cut it.  He has only an intellectual understanding of the struggles of the peasants beyond the moat (aka The Deplorables).

The full interview with Senator Cruz after the failed July 28, 2017 vote on the "skinny repeal":

Senator Cruz also stated:
“I’ll tell you this, if you stand up and campaign and say we’re going to repeal ObamaCare and you vote for ObamaCare, those are not consistent,” he added. “And the American people are entirely justified in saying, ‘Any politician who told me that and voted the other didn’t tell me the truth; they lied to me.’ ”


“You can’t have your central promise for seven years be we’ll repeal ObamaCare, and then you show up and vote not even to take up the bill to consider repealing ObamaCare."
Do the three senators who voted no on the "skinny repeal" — Senators Susan Collins (Maine), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), and John McCain (Ariz.) — realize what they have wrought? In their zeal to resist President Trump, they may well have dealt the death blow to the GOP.

Do they actually want to bring about single payer?

Confirmed: John Brennan Colluded With Foreign Spies to Defeat Trump

From the American Spectator:
An article in the Guardian last week provides more confirmation that John Brennan was the American progenitor of political espionage aimed at defeating Donald Trump. One side did collude with foreign powers to tip the election — Hillary’s. 
Seeking to retain his position as CIA director under Hillary, Brennan teamed up with British spies and Estonian spies to cripple Trump’s candidacy. He used their phony intelligence as a pretext for a multi-agency investigation into Trump, which led the FBI to probe a computer server connected to Trump Tower and gave cover to Susan Rice, among other Hillary supporters, to spy on Trump and his people. 
John Brennan’s CIA operated like a branch office of the Hillary campaign, leaking out mentions of this bogus investigation to the press in the hopes of inflicting maximum political damage on Trump. 
An official in the intelligence community tells TAS that Brennan’s retinue of political radicals didn’t even bother to hide their activism, decorating offices with “Hillary for president cups” and other campaign paraphernalia. 
A supporter of the American Communist Party at the height of the Cold War, Brennan brought into the CIA a raft of subversives and gave them plum positions from which to gather and leak political espionage on Trump. He bastardized standards so that these left-wing activists could burrow in and take career positions. 
Under the patina of that phony professionalism, they could then present their politicized judgments as “non-partisan.”


This guy really gets Trump, if my opinion.

Washington Post Admits, “The Quest to Prove Collusion is Crumbling”

From Christine Laila at Gateway Pundit:

In a stunning op-ed in the Washington Post titled, “The Quest to Prove Collusion is Crumbling”, the writer actually admits that the whole Russian collusion narrative is ‘the story that never was’.

Almost as stunning as the piece itself, the story was ignored by both the main stream media and independent media. Ed Rogers penned this piece following Jared Kushner’s testimony.

Rogers said, instead of igniting the Russian collusion narrative, Jared Kusner’s testimony stifled it, causing the media to “quietly back out of the room unnoticed”. Excerpts from Rogers’ WaPo op-ed:
While everyone is fixated on President Trump’s unbecoming and inexplicable assault on Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the media has been trying to sneak away from the “Russian collusion” story. 
That’s right. For all the breathless hype, the on-air furrowed brows and the not-so-veiled hopes that this could be Watergate, Jared Kushner’s statement and testimony before Congress have made Democrats and many in the media come to the realization that the collusion they were counting on just isn’t there. 
As the date of the Kushner testimony approached, the media thought it was going to advance and refresh the story. But Kushner’s clear, precise and convincing account of what really occurred during the campaign and after the election has left many of President Trump’s loudest enemies trying to quietly back out of the room unnoticed. 
Cable news airtime and in-print word count dedicated to the nonexistent collusion story appear to be dwindling. Democrats and their allies in the media seem less eager to talk about it, and when they do, they say something to the effect of “but, but, but … Kushner didn’t answer every question … He wasn’t under oath … There are still more witnesses … What about this or that new gadfly?” 
They are stammering. And it hasn’t taken long for news producers and editors to realize that the story is fading. 
At last, the story that never was is not happening.

He's a Palestinian "Refugee".
The attacker who today killed one man in a supermarket in Hamburg and injured six other people, one of them gravely, was a Palestinian ‘refugee’ named Ahmed al H., according to the German newspaper Tagesspiegel. He was born in 1991 in Saudi Arabia and came to Germany as a refugee. Although he was due to be deported, he couldn’t, for his lack of papers. He is reported to have been known to German intelligence agencies as an extremist and as a so-called ‘risk’, people who German intelligence agencies assess as willing to commit acts of violence.
Passers-by were able to overpower the fleeing suspect. The suspect was lighty injured. Arriving plainclothes policemen arrested the suspect.

Priebus Canned, General John F. Kelly To Replace Him

John Fuckin' Kelly!

From the New Fake Times:
WASHINGTON — Reince Priebus, the establishment Republican-turned-loyalist to President Trump who served as his White House chief of staff for the last six months, was pushed out on Friday in the latest convulsion in a chaos-wracked West Wing to which he had repeatedly failed to bring some semblance of order. 
Convinced that Mr. Priebus was not strong enough, Mr. Trump has been talking about bringing in “a general” as chief of staff and chose John F. Kelly, the retired Marine four-star general serving as secretary of homeland security. But some of his advisers oppose that idea, arguing that Mr. Trump needs someone more in tune with the nationalist political movement that helped propel him to the White House.
Oh, but wait. It looks like Trump's making his own decisions:

The Trump Effect: Deprogramming The American Mind

Look Deeply Into My Butt,
You Are Getting Very Horny

From Front Page Magazine:
Six months into the Trump presidency, it seems safe to say that America has never had a political experience like the one he has brought to the White House. He has sparked a stark raving mad #resistance from the left that makes Bush Derangement Syndrome look fair and balanced. 
The news media hang on his every tweet. Hollywood is practically self-combusting in panic and disbelief. Climate change Cassandras are melting down. Illegal aliens are feeling the heat as well. 
He has even thrown his own party into turmoil. All of this hysterical disarray has resulted from the impact not of a movement or a Party, but of one man, Donald Trump. 
Now a new documentary offers some thoughtful commentary on President Trump’s agitating arrival on the political scene. Produced, directed and edited by Agustin Blazquez, The Trump Effect: Deprogramming the American Mind features author and filmmaker Laurence Jarvik musing upon the rise of Trump and how this iconoclastic President is changing the way Americans think about ourselves and the world. 
Over the course of an hour of discussion, Jarvik’s primary thesis is that Trump is dismantling the politically correct ideology that has dominated American political discourse since 9/11, which will lead the way to a newfound freedom and unification of a country on its way to becoming great again. 
Laurence Jarvik is the editor and publisher of Penny-A-Page Press and the author of PBS: Behind the Screen and Masterpiece Theater and the Politics of Quality. He is also the director of Who Shall Live and Who Shall Die, a documentary about America’s indifference to the plight of European Jews during the Holocaust. 
Agustin Blazquez is the Cuban filmmaker behind a seven-part Covering Cuba documentary series and the founder of UnCovering Cuba Educational Foundation, a non-profit organization. 
“The Trump effect,” Jarvik begins, “is the deprogramming of the American mind, and Trump is the Deprogrammer-in-Chief.” Since the traumatic terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, Jarvik notes, “Americans have somehow been programmed, indoctrinated, sort of fed a lot of fantasy ideology, whether it’s in schools, whether in the media, whether in politics,” and the brainwashing and fear induced by this PC totalitarianism is similar to being immersed in a cult. 
The process of breaking free from its grip is not unlike the process whereby a cult follower is deprogrammed. Jarvik is hopeful that Trump can break this spell; indeed, he is already doing it. 
“The techniques Trump is using are the same techniques used by deprogrammers,” he argues. 
“First they have to discredit the cult leader… [Trump] did it with the Clintons and the Bushes, and he did it with President Obama.” 
“The second step is to show the contradictions between what they say and what they’re going to do on a policy or action level. Again, he did that,” and “that’s where the tweets come in.” Jarvik notes that Trump uses Twitter to constantly bombard the public with information and attacks on leftist hypocrisy and policy failures. 
“The third stage,” Jarvik continues, which is the tipping point in this, is that you have to get the cult member who is being deprogrammed to recognize reality. The cult creates a fantasy world that you live in. Once the cult follower is shown the leader can’t be trusted, that the policies make no sense, and then is exposed to what reality is, the former cult person can begin to think for him- or herself. So Trump has really been carrying out this experiment and deprogramming the whole country.
