The Shock Polls Media Doesn't Want American Voters To See

By Capt Joseph R. John, August 22, 2016  

The below listed UCLA/LA Times poll, which began on July 4, 2016, the results of which is the type of information that the left of center liberal media establishment doesn’t want American voters to see.  That poll reveals the naked truth about the true standing of the presidential race between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.   

In that poll, Hillary is losing despite the fact that her campaign has been spending hundreds of millions of dollars on TV ads attacking Donald Trump in key battle ground states.  In this particular poll Donald Trump has a 2% lead over Hillary (he is not losing by between 8-10% reported daily by the liberal press).  Donald Trump has not spent one cent on TV ads in key battleground states. The dishonest left of center liberal media establishment has consistently refused to report the results of the below listed poll since July 4th, 2016 to the American voters.   

Donald Trump’s support from Black Americans rose to 12.8%, and his support from Hispanic Americans rose to 36.5%---more of a percentage of support by minorities than either Mitt Romney or John McCain received during their respective presidential bids.  At this same period in August 1988 in the Vice President George Bush versus Gov Michael Dukakis presidential race, Vice President Bush was down by 16 percent, but he subsequently won the election in November with 53% of the vote.  

The Republican Political Ruling Class has been violating President Reagan’s rule, “Do not to speak ill of another Republican.”  Their vocal criticism lays bare their fear that if Donald Trump is elected, he would destroy their cozy relationship with the Democrat Political Ruling Class, and with K Street lobbyists, who have been betraying the American people for the last 8 years---Washington DC needs a wrecking ball to shatter the rampant corruption.  

The American liberal press, TV Networks, Hollywood leftists, and a relatively small, but vocal, number of Never Trump Republicans, by repeatedly attacking Donald Trump, continue to violate President Reagan’s rule, are actually supporting Hillary’s election, by trying to undercut Mr. Trump’s appeal.   

The press continues to cover up every one of Hillary's repeated violations of National Security Regulations over a 4 year period where over 1000 classified messages were transmitted on a unclassified server, while over the years enlisted military personnel who didn’t have the support of a dishonest Attorney General protecting them, went to jail for violating National Security Regulations; in some cases, for violating rules for just one classified message-----not for destroying 33,000 messages.   

The press has been covering up Hillary’s illegal destruction of 33,000 messages that were transmitted on her unauthorized and unclassified server in her home, which foreign governments and WikiLeaks have hacked—some of those messages are so highly classified that the Congress and the American people will never know what was in them.   

For 4 years the dishonest press has covered up Hillary’s personal responsibility for refusing to provide adequate security for the US Mission in Benghazi, despite the fact that the US Ambassador pleaded directly to Hillary 6 times, for adequate security saying his life was being targeted.  Hillary’s repeated refusals led directly to the death of 4 Americans in Benghazi.  Then she flagrantly lied to the nation and to the families of those 4 dead Americans by saying a YouTube video was responsible for a demonstration that went bad, even though she knew the attack on the US Mission was a planned commando attack by over 125 Radical Islamic Terrorists.   

The most damaging action against the United States that Hillary took while she was Secretary of State, was to provide her signature approval to give Putin’s Russian Nuclear Energy Agencies control of an American company, Uranium One, and with it, 20% of all of the United States Uranium reserves.    

While she was Secretary of State, Hillary’s criminal money laundering operation, funneling hundreds of millions of dollars in donations from foreign government and foreign companies into a Canadian off shore bank; some of those funds were subsequently funneled into the Clinton Foundation US accounts; it was reported that only 4% of those funds ever went to charities.  

If Hillary were ever elected, she professes on the stump, that she would continue Obama’s destructive and anti-American policies – the same disastrous policies that have brought in over 900,000 Muslim refugees from the Middle East and resettled them in 185 cities without letting the FBI vet them to determine if they have terrorist ties, and would also continue Obama’s tax and spend policies that are aimed at destroying the Free Enterprise System that built the most effective economic engine in the history of mankind.  These policies increased the threat of terrorism in the homeland where there have already been 86 terrorist attacks by Radical Islamic Terrorist on Obama’s watch that the press continues to covers up, where the FBI now has over 1000 ISIS terrorist investigations underway in all 50 states.  Hillary further professes to continue to use Common Core to force feed Socialism into the fabric of the education of our youth in undergraduate education, continue the division and murderous conflict along racial lines that America hasn’t seen since the early 1950s, maintain a constant flood of illegal aliens to enter the US through the wide open southern border, and bring in hundreds of thousands of unassimilable Muslim refugees into the American homeland from the most radical places on earth. 

The Republican leadership in Congress, by their legislative action and failure to act, have revealed their true colors over the last 8 years.  They’ve demonstrated that they are only doing what is in their best interest, not what is in the best interest of the American people.  They have voted to allow the national debt to rise $20 trillion, sat on their hands while Obama hallowed out the US military, provided federal funding for over 300 lawless sanctuary cities that disobey federal laws, refused to use the power of the purse to stop Obama’s lawless immigrations policies, allowed the Department of Health and Human Services to threaten to withhold education funding to all 50 states if they don’t employ their Common Core Curriculum to indoctrinate America’s youth in Socialism, and for 8 years have refused to pass legislature to close the wide open southern border through which drugs, illegal aliens, and terrorist freely enter.  

 

For 8 years the Republican leadership in Congress has not only betrayed the Republicans who put them in office, they repeatedly betrayed the Republican Conservative Caucus in Congress by working against them, and sided with Democrats on the other side of the aisle in order to frustrate hundreds of Conservative Congressmen to pass legislature that is not in the best interest of the American Free Enterprise System, nor in the best interest of American citizens.  

 

The Republican Party will never be the same after this election, and Senator Ted Cruz, Senator Lindsey Graham, Gov John Kasich, Gov Jeb Bush, and Gov Mitt Romney have forever destroyed any presidential ambitions they may still have.

WND EXCLUSIVE

THE SHOCK POLL MEDIA DOESN'T WANT YOU TO SEE?

USC/L.A. Times shows Trump up in latest, but you've got to find results yourself

WASHINGTON – Every day the USC/L.A. Times poll asks a portion of 3,000 U.S. citizens randomly recruited from across all households and demographic groups how they view the presidential race.

The polls began July 4 and will run through the election.

The pollsters must have gotten a shock this weekend.

Their results show Donald Trump in the lead by two points.

So how did the news team report it?

It didn’t.

You have to look at the poll results for yourself to see the findings and understand them.

In news parlance, it’s called burying the lead – considered a cardinal sin in the business.

But it’s there as plain as day, in answer to the key question, “Who would you vote for?”

LAT-poll-8-21

Despite the glee the media have reporting daily for the last few weeks that Hillary Clinton is winning by 8-10 points, this polls shows Trump edging Clinton 44.2 percent to 43.6 percent – a statistical tie within the margin of error. But is that not news?

Not to the L.A. Times and not to any other major media outlet apparently.

Doesn’t fit the narrative.

If it hadn’t been for the Drudge Report spotting the shocker, it might have remained a deep, dark secret.

Instead of reporting that a man just bit a dog, the L.A. Times analysis story is headlined: “New poll analysis finds a wasted summer for Donald Trump and a boost for Hillary Clinton.”

The poll also shows Trump jump from 1 percent of the black vote to 12.8 percent, just after he began wooing black voters last weekend. Clinton dives to 82.9 percent from a high of 90.

LAT-poll-race-8-21

Among Hispanics, Trump also gained ground, rising to 36.5 percent – more than received by either Mitt Romney or John McCain in their respective presidential bids.

Trump also has a higher lead among men than Clinton has with women.

LAT-poll-gender-8-21

Yet, apparently, persuaded by media reports, voters overwhelmingly think Clinton will win – 54.3 percent to 39.9.

LAT-poll-winner-8-21

Another new poll, this one by the Pew Research Center, shows Trump narrowing the gap with Clinton to 4 percent – with Clinton at 41 percent and Trump at 37 percent. The Libertarian Party candidate, Gary Johnson, and the Green party candidate, Jill Stein, each scored just over 4 percent each, the survey found.
 

Ex-CIA Deputy Appointed by Obama, Lied and Whitewashed Benghazi Murders, Now He Endorses Hillary

By Capt Joseph R. John, August 8, 2016

The Obama administration summarily removed General David Petraeus as Director of the CIA for doing  1/1000th of what Hillary did, when she transmitted 33,000 E-mails on an unclassified server, in violation of the National Security Act.   General Petraeus knew too much about how Hillary turned down US Ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens' 12 direct and urgent requests, personally to Hillary, desperately asking for additional security for the US Mission in Benghazi over a 5 ½ month period, which she turned down or ignored.   
 

Despite over 600 requests from multiple US Agencies and the US Military to increase additional security, Hillary turned down every request, dooming 4 Americans to their deaths in Benghazi.  The Occupant of the Oval Office completed the betrayal by refusing to authorize “Cross Border Authority” so a 130 man USMC Fast Team in Sigonella, Italy, 377 miles away (1 hr and 50 min away), and 2 fully armed F-16Cs on the tarmac in Aviano, Italy, 1044 miles away (2hrs and 30 min away) could be dispatched to save the lives of Americans under attack by over 125 Radical Islamic Terrorists in Benghazi for 13 hours.  The betrayal doomed the life of the US Ambassador to Libya, two Navy SEALs, and a Communications Specialist to be murdered----Mike Morell was an integral part of the Obama and Hillary Whitewash and cover up as follows:

 

On September 12, 2011, CIA Officer Hunter Stevens, the Libyan Embassy Station Chief in Tripoli, Libya, submitted his official report on the attack on the US Mission in Benghazi to his superiors in CIA Headquarters in Langley, Virginia.  Since General Petraeus had been summarily relieved by Obama, the report was delivered to Mike Morrell, Obama’s newly appointed Acting CIA Director---Morell would ultimately disgrace himself, and betray 57 years of honorable service by the men and women of the CIA.  

 

What every American should know, is that the CIA Station Chief’s Report is inviolate and “NO ONE” is authorized to change its content!!! The only duty for the CIA Station Chief is to report “facts” as they occur.  It is not the responsibility of the CIA to develop “talking points” for political hacks like Susan Rice who lie to 5 Networks about the premediated attack by Radical Islamic Terrorists.  In the continuing narrative, Morell compromised the good work of the CIA by developing talking point and altering the CIA Station Chief’s Report. 

 

CIA Station Chief Hunter Stevens’ report stated: There was “No” demonstration in Benghazi in response to a YouTube video.

 

Mike Morrell made a massive edit to the CIA Station Chief’s Report, without authority and in violation of CIA Regulations, in order to make it fit the “UNTRUTHFUL” narrative that a YouTube video was responsible for a demonstration that went bad-----no one ever saw that YouTube video anywhere in Libya.

 

Mike Morrell changed the word “Terrorist” in the CIA Station Chief’s report to “Demonstrators” throughout.

 

Mike Morrell removed all references to “Al Q’ieda” from the CIA Station Chief’s Report.

 

Mike Morrell remove the phrase from the CIA Station Chief’s Report: “Attackers were not an escalation of a demonstration.”

 

However, despite Mike Morrell’s attempt to “illegally” sanitize the CIA Station’s Chief’s Report to fit Hillary’s and Obama’s narrative, it was considered unsuitable when they first saw Morell’s edits, and the doctored CIA Report was returned to Mike Morrell for more edits, it could not be released to the press and public in its current doctored form.

 

Because the CIA Station Chief’s Report inferred the CIA had warned the State Department about an attack on the US Mission in Benghazi, on Hilary’s orders, the State Department had Mike Morrell use his heavy hand to eliminate that information from the CIA Station Chief’s Report.

 

Mike Morrell then told Jake Sullivan, Hillary’s Chief of Staff at the State Department, he would be happy to develop appropriate “talking points” for release to support Hillary’s desired narrative.  He then did in fact participate in developing the lies that Susan Rice delivered on 5 Sunday TV Network News broadcasts.

 

Back at CIA Headquarters in Langley, not only did Mike Morrell discount the CIA Station Chief’s Report, Morrell also refused to consider the reports of 32 Americans employed by the CIA and the State Department who were on the ground and witnessed the Benghazi attack first hand.  Instead Mike Morrell relied on the advice of a CIA Analyst in a Washington, DC Office who wasn’t in Benghazi and didn’t witness the attack.  Powerful forces behind the scenes in the Obama administration had been muzzling the 32 witnesses who witnessed the attack.

 

When US Senators heard how Morell altered the CIA Station Chief’s Report, they summoned him to a Senate hearing.  Morell told the Senators, that the FBI made the above listed alterations to the CIA Station Chief’s Report.  Throughout his testimony to the Senators, Morell repeatedly lied and perjured himself in his Congressional testimony, and should have been charged, convicted, and jailed.

 

Mike Morrell refused to allow the CIA to do an Internal Investigation about the Benghazi attack on the US Mission, which is not only highly irregular, it is a flagrant attempt to Whitewash and cover-up what actually led up to the attack and occurred during the attack.

 

When the FBI was informed by US Senators that Morell accused them of altering the CIA Station Chief’s report, the leaders at FBI Headquarters in Washington, DC were furious and confronted Morell.  Morrell quickly backed down, and admitted he made the illegal alterations to the CIA Station Chief’s Report.

 

Mike Morrell is now being paid a lucrative salary at Beacon Global Strategies, LLC, working for Philippie Raines, who was the Senior Advisor to Hillary when she was sworn in as Secretary of State.  Raines is the founder of Beacon Global Strategies, LLC---they are the Clinton Gatekeepers.

 

Now the left of center liberal media establishment is making press releases, proudly proclaiming that the “liar” and “traitor” Mike Morrell endorsed Hillary, as if it is a badge of honor and that Morell’s endorsement somehow gives Hillary’s campaign credibility.  Those press releases this weekend, just confirms that Mike Morell was involved in the cover up and Whitewash of the Battle of Benghazi from the very beginning.  The below listed articles comments on Morrell’s dishonesty.

Ex-CIA Spook Who Whitewashed Benghazi Endorses Hillary 
August 6, 2016/2 Comments/in FeaturedNews /by Kenneth R. Timmerman 

Hillary has become a spook’s candidate. Former Deputy CIA Director Michael Morell, who so conveniently covered her tracks in Benghazi, has now confirmed it.

In a glowing endorsement his friends at The New York Times prominently featured Friday, Morell gave his full-throated support to Clinton, while insisting that he was no partisan and had even voted Republican in the past.

Like an obedient party hack vying for a new job, Morell spouted the party line that Donald Trump was “not only unqualified for the job, but he may well pose a threat to our national security.”

Those are strong words, especially coming from someone who we are led to believe is an unimpeachable source. But is he?

The “non-partisan” Morell was caught “mis-speaking” to Congress about his role in sanitizing the infamous CIA talking points prepared for US Ambassador Susan Rice to deliver on the  talk shows after the Benghazi attacks. And when he was caught out, like a faithful soldier, he fell on his sword. 

Endorsement of The 34th Combat Veterans For Congress to Run in 2016---(FL 18th)

Combat Veterans For Congress-----Embedded Integrity

The Combat Veterans For Congress PAC is endorsing the 109th Combat Veteran For Congress in 8 years; he is a fiscally conservative candidate who will work to rein in the out of control spending by irresponsible members of Congress, reduce taxes, reduce the national debt, rebuild the strength of the US military, support the freedom & independence of the individual, protect & support the 2nd Amendment, secure the borders, reform the VA, defeat ISIS & Al Q’ieda, repeal & replace Obama Care, and will work toward unleashing the private sector to create jobs, and stimulate private sector business investment once again.  SSgt Brian J. Mast, USA (Ret) (Ranger) (EOD) of Fort Pierce, Florida who served in the US Army for 12 years, until he was medically retired as Wounded Warrior double amputee, is running in the 18th Congressional District of Florida, for Congressman Patrick Murphy (D-FL-18) seat.  Cong Murphy has chosen not to seek re-election, but instead is seeking election to the US Senate from Florida.  

Brian Mast was born on July 10, 1980 in Grand Rapids, Michigan.  Brian’s father served in the US Army during the Korean War in a Nike Missile Battalion in Illinois, and Brian followed in his father’s footsteps, who set an example for him to love and respect his country and motivated him to “Never Give Up.”  Brian was raised in Grand Rapids and graduated from South Christian High School, in the suburbs of Grand Rapids in June 1999. In May 2016, Brian graduated from Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts with a Bachelor of Arts Degree concentrated in Economics with minors in Government and Environmental Studies.   

On May 23, 2000, Brian Mast was sworn into the US Army at the US Army Induction Center in Lansing, Michigan.  Recruit Brian Mast immediately reported for basic training at Fort Leonard Wood in Missouri.  Following boot camp, PVT Mast reported to the 841st Combat Engineering Battalion at Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where he was mobilized as part of the Global War on Terror 2003.     

 

In January 2007, Specialist Mast went through Infantry and Airborne Training at Fort Benning, GA and was promoted to Sergeant, and continued on to Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Training at Elgin Air Force Base where he was awarded the EOD Badge.  Sergeant Mast then reported to a newly created Special Operations EOD Company, under the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) at Fort Bragg, NC.  In March 2009, Sgt Mast was promoted to Staff Sergeant. 

In July 2010 SSgt Mast deployed to Kandahar, Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom and reported to JSOC in the 75th Ranger Regiment.  The unit worked only under cover of darkness, going after specific Taliban targets with the mission of eliminating or capturing a specific high priority target.  Working under JSOC meant fighting at the tip of the spear in the ongoing war against Radical Islamic terrorism. As a bomb technician, in this high level of special operations came with a great deal of responsibility. SSgt Mast’s task was to protect his fellow soldiers from the war’s most deadly weapon, the Improvised Explosive Device (IED). This meant placing himself directly in the line of fire on each and every mission.  In the course or those combat missions, SSgt Mast was able to detect and destroy many IEDs.

On September 19, 2010, SSgt Mast uncovered an IED, while in the process of disarming it, the IED detonated resulting in sustained catastrophic injuries, including the loss of both of SSgt Mast’s legs.  After sustaining such severe injuries in the detonation of that IED, SSgt Mast was transferred to Walter Reed Medical Center in Washington, DC and was specifically assigned to JSOC until his Medical Retirement from the US Army on June 19, 2012.

For service in the US Army including service in combat, SSgt Mast was awarded medals for valor and merit including the Bronze Star Medal (with the “V” device for Valor), the Purple Heart Medal, the Defense Meritorious Medal, the Meritorious Service Medal, the Army Commendation Medal  (with the “V” device for Valor), the Army Achievement Medal (an Oak Leaf for a second award)  the Presidential Unit Citation, the Combat Action Badge, the Senior EOD Badge, the Basic EOD Badge, the Parachute Badge, the Ranger Scroll, various Service and Campaign Medals.

While still in the US Army and convalescing from his injuries, SSgt Mast volunteered his time as an instructor of Homemade Explosives with the ATF.   He also volunteered his technical expertise for the National Nuclear Safety Administration from July 2011 to February 2012.  Following retirement from the Army on June 19, 2012, SSgt Mast continued working in counter terrorism as an Explosive Specialist under the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).  SSgt Mast also carried forward in life the standard that whatever cause he believes in, he will not just support it in word, but will support it in deed.  For that reason, in January 2015, SSgt Mast volunteered to serve alongside the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) to demonstrate his support for Israel’s freedom and their fight against Radical Islamic Terrorism.

On June 8, 2015 two days before SSgt Mast declared his candidacy to run for Congress, he resigned his position from DHS; he has been campaign for election ever since.  SSgt Mast is a member of the American Legion,  the VFW, the NRA, and the Council of Foreign Relations.   SSgt Mast has been endorsed by Senator Joni Ernst (R-IW), Cong Ryan Zinke (SEAL) (R-MT), Cong Steve Russell (Ranger) (R-OK), Cong Pete Sessions (R-TX), Citizens United PAC, and the Combat Veterans For Congress PAC.  Brian and his wife Brianna of 10 years are members of the Christ Fellowship Church of Stuart, and are proud parents of son Magnum age 6, son Maverick age 4, and daughter Madelyn age 1.

Hillary was "Not Put Under Oath" and the Interview by the FBI was "Not Recorded"

 By Capt Joseph R. John, July 8, 2016

Over the last year, Hillary repeatedly lied to Congress while under oath, lied in her response to questions during Presidential debates, lied during interviews with news media, and lied to the American people on how she handled Secret, Top Secret, and Sensitive Compartmented E-mails that were transmitted and received on the unclassified private E-mail server in the basement of her home.

Hillary Clinton also lied in her testimony while under oath to Congress, about the “Radical Islamic Terrorists “ who attacked on the US Mission in Benghazi, Libya.  She also lied to the families of the 4 dead Americans who were killed in Benghazi, within close proximity to their American Flag draped caskets, immediately after their bodies arrived at the Delaware US Air Force Base.  She also repeatedly lied to the American people and the news media when she said the attack on the US Mission in Benghazi was the result of a demonstration against a YouTube video that went bad, while on the night of the attack, she told her daughter that the attack was conducted by an Al Q’ieda type terrorist group.  

After many years as a practicing attorney, 8 years as a US Senator, 4 years as the Secretary of State, Hillary had been repeatedly briefed and required to execute proof of her understanding, under penalty of perjury, on how to handle classified material.  Hillary very well knew that in transmitting and receiving classified E-mails on an unclassified server, that she was violating US Federal Laws.  

In his testimony before Congress, the FBI Director alleged Hillary Clinton did not know what she was doing when she was violating Federal Laws.  If that is true, it goes to her lack of “competence” and further demonstrates that she is “incompetent” to ever be trusted to handle classified material again.
FBI Director Comey told the American people that the FBI did a “comprehensive” investigation of whether Hillary Clinton violated US Federal Laws.  He said Hillary had “No Intent”, even though he knew she repeatedly lied while she was under oath in her sworn testimony to Congress on her handling of classified material.  By lying to Congress under oath, she perjured herself, which was evidence of her “Intent” to mislead and deceive Congress about the details of how she received and transmitted Secret, Top Secret and Sensitive Compartmented E-mails on the unclassified server in the basement of her home.   
Most Americans fully understand that perjury in testimony before Congress, while under oath, is a federal crime. 

Hillary's interview by the FBI was not conducted in the same manner that all other suspects in a criminal case are interviewed.  FBI Director Comey not only did not attend the 3 ½ half hour (very short) interview of Hillary Clinton, but incredulously, he did not ensure she was put “Under Oath,” did not ensure the interview was “recorded,” and nor did he require to have a “transcript” taken of the interview for retention by the FBI.  Before the FBI Director ruled against referring Hillary’s case for criminal prosecution, Director Comey did not even speak to the 5 or 6 FBI Agents who interviewed Hillary on a Saturday on the 4th of July weekend.

The FBI Director’s decision not to recommend the indictment of Hillary Clinton negatively affected the view of millions of Americans, who developed the impression that there is no equality in the “Rule of Law.”  At a minimum, the way FBI Director Comey had the FBI handle the interview of Hillary Clinton also led the American people to believe there are two sets of rules for enforcing US Federal Laws.  There is one for Hillary Clinton, and another for other Americans who have been previously prosecuted, convicted, and jailed for doing far less than what Hillary did, in their own handling classified material.   

After the FBI Director Comey laid out the predicate on how Hillary repeatedly violated US Federal Laws over a 4 year period, then he drew an erroneous conclusion when he said “no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case” because she had no “Intent.”  Hillary’s “Intent” was proven when she repeatedly lied to Congress, about how she was handling classified material.  However, thousands of Americans are currently serving prison sentences for mishandling classified material, and in many of their cases, “Intent” was never proven.  “Intent” is not required to convict someone for violating Federal Laws governing the handling of classified material.  
Hillary Clinton and her staff, who were involved in improperly handling extremely sensitive compartmented E-mails (those E-mails are more highly classified than Top Secret), were incredibly reckless, and they should never be allowed to handle classified material again.  
Hillary Clinton's case should have been referred to the Justice Department for indictment, so that the Justice Department could have referred the case to a Grand Jury in order to allow the Grand Jury to make the decision.  If Hillary were a soldier in the US Army and had violated the handling of classified material, she would have lost her security clearance, would have been faced with crimial prosecution, and would have lost pay.  Director Comey prosecuted and convicted members of the US Navy for mishandling classified material, without having to prove "Intent."

Yesterday the US Attorney General gave Hillary a pass on prosecution for her gross violation of mishandling classified material over a 4 year period, in violation of Federal Laws governing the handling of classified material.  It was an extremely bad day for the American Justice System.

Hillary Clinton Above The Law

By Capt Joseph R. John, July 6, 2016

Federal Prosecutors, Law Enforcement Officers, and most clear thinking, law abiding citizens throughout the nation are concerned with the FBI Director’s decision to decision to summarily acquit Hillary Clinton.  FBI Director James Comey stated that Hillary Clinton sent and received Secret, Top Secret, and Compartmented messages on her unclassified private E-mail server, and went on to say “we believe that hostile actors gained access to the private commercial E-mail accounts of people with whom Secretary Clinton was in regular contact from her personal account.”  The FBI Director also stated that Hillary Clinton was “extremely careless” (another way of saying “grossly negligent”) in handling and transmitting very sensitive classified information.

Hillary violated US Federal Laws, violated National Security Statues, and put the National Security of the United States at risk; some of her staff handling the server and the messages didn’t have proper security clearances.  Many of the 24 million Americans who served in the US Armed Forces and handled classified messages, would have been prosecuted if they illegally destroyed 30,000 messages, and transmitted & received 110 messages containing clearly marked classified information, from an unclassified server.  

 

Hillary’s actions demonstrated “gross negligence”; “gross negligence” is a “felony.” Over a 4 year period, Hillary Clinton repeatedly violated federal statues governing the handling of over 100 Secret, Top Secret, and compartmented messages. The FBI could have easily met the standard to prosecute Hillary for her “negligence” in handling Secret, Top Secret, and Compartmented messages.

 

The central flaw in the acquittal of Hillary was “Intent.”  Intent “does not” matter in US Federal Laws governing the handling of classified material.  Thousands of Americans have been prosecuted for “mishandling” classified material—never having had “Intent.”  

 

The FBI Director’s findings revealed that Hillary Clinton misled the American people over and over again.  Director Comey contradicted Hillary repeated statements on national TV when she said that she never transmitted or received classified messages on the unclassified server in the basement of her home.  

 

This final decision in the Case of Hillary Clinton brings into question the manner in which this case was resolved, brings into question the judgment of the FBI Director, and demonstrates to the American people that in the Obama administration there is “Not Equal Justice Under Law” because thousands of Americans have been convicted and sent to prison for doing much less than Hillary Clinton did.  

 

A cautious FBI Director should have impaneled a Grand Jury, then he should have referred the findings of the investigation to the Grand Jury.  Violation of the Federal Statues should have been considered by the Grand Jury, and the FBI Director should have announced the Grand Jury’s decision to the American people.     

 

The decision by Director Comey to summarily acquit Hillary for her actions over a 4 year period in illegally destroying 30,000 messages, while transmitting and receiving over 110 messages containing clearly marked classified information, on an unclassified server in her home, was a miscarriage of justice that “Violated the Rule of Law.”  Director Comey’s summarily acquittal of Hillary Clinton damaged the fine reputation of the FBI.

Muslim Brotherhood “Massive” Government Infiltration While Stigmatizing Government Employees With "Islamophobia"

By Capt Joseph R. John, June 29, 2016

Many law abiding Muslim America citizens have assimilated in the United States and fought as members of the US Armed Forces, against Sadam Hussein’s invasion of Kuwait, and also against “Radical Islamic Terrorism” over the last 50 years.  They are opposed to ISIS’ murderous attacks against gays, Christians, and Jews, and are frightened of the “Radical Islamic Terrorist” threat.  More Muslims worldwide than Americans have been murdered by “Radical Islamic Terrorists.”

 

The Muslim Brotherhood (the progenitor of Jihadism), and its front groups, the Council of American Islamic Relations (CAIR), and the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), do not have members who are law abiding Muslim Americans, like many Muslim Americans who are good citizens and have assimilated in the United States.  Members of the Muslim Brotherhood, CAIR, and MPAC have sinister goals that are not in support of the US Constitution or The Bill of Rights.  They have become a very dangerous “Fifth Column” in the United States, appointed by Obama to very high and sensitive positions in the US Government agencies. 

 

For nearly 8 years Obama has been filling the Washington bureaucracy including DHS, the CIA, DOD, the National Security Council, the White House, the State Department, every US Intelligence Agency, and the US Armed Forces with thousands of members of the CAIR, MPAC, the Muslim Brotherhood, and other Muslim Brotherhood front groups.  

 

Phil Haney (former Custom & Border Protection DHS Law Enforcement Officer) and Richard Higgins (former DOD Manager of the Combating Terrorism & Technical Support Office & Irregular Warfare Section) made explosive charges on national radio.  They stated that the Obama administration is a "tool" for the Jihadi movement in the US.  That the driving force behind America's domestic counter-terrorism strategies and its foreign policy is a massive Muslim Brotherhood (MB) movement in the United States, that the MB controls how the issue of terrorism is handled at the National Security Agency level; UTT 6/20/16-SA John Guandolo ’89, FBI (Ret).

 

Mr. Higgins stated, "What (leaders in the Obama administration) are actually scrubbing is any references to the Islamic doctrine that would allow us to define who is or who is not actually one of our enemies."  Mr Higgins went on to say, "When you look at the deliberate decision-making process of the Obama administration, as it relates to “Radical Islam”, that deliberate decision-making process is controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood.  And the way they control it is by prohibiting US National Security Agency personnel from ever developing an understanding to the level where Phil Haney had it."(UTT 6/20/16)

 

An excellent example of how the Muslim Brotherhood controls security decisions concerning “Radical Islam” at the highest levels of the Obama administration, is stated more precisely as Mr. Higgins said, "The Muslim Brotherhood was killed en masse by Saddam Hussein – the US removed him.  Qaddafi killed the Muslim Brotherhood – the US removed him.  Egypt’s Mubarak defeated the Muslim Brotherhood--he had to go.  Mr Higgins alleges the US has become the MB instrument because the MB control our deliberate decision-making process."(UTT 6/20/16)

 

Another example of the Muslim Brotherhood controlling security decisions at the highest levels of the Obama administration, was how Obama, Hillary, and Susan Rice lied on national TV, to the families of the 4 dead Americans killed in Benghazi, to the United Nations 3 weeks after the Battle of Benghazi, and still today, insisting the attack on the Mission in Benghazi was because of an anti-Islam YouTube video that no one ever saw.  They all repeatedly lied instead of telling the truth, stating that the attack was preplanned and executed by “Radical Islamic Terrorists.”  Over a 9 month period leading to the attack, the US Ambassador to Libya, desperately begged Hillary directly 12 times for critically needed security.  He was turned down 12 times, then he was murdered along with 3 other Americans.

 

The Muslim Brotherhood has been banned from Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Russia, Jordan, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirate because the Muslim Brotherhood & CAIR have been identified as International Terrorist organizations that have tried to undermine and overthrow friendly Muslim Middle East governments.  Despite the fact that the Muslim Brotherhood and CAIR have been designated terrorist organizations, the Obama administration continues to support their anti-US Constitutional philosophy, and Obama has become an apologist for members of the Muslim Brotherhood, and CAIR’s terrorist ties.  

 

In 2007, CAIR was listed as an unindicted co-conspirator by the FBI in the Holy Land Foundation trial; it was the largest terror-financing case in the Republic’s 240 year history.  The FBI specifically identified CAIR as an entity of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee, a secret body set up to advance the Hamas agenda.” The UAE designated CAIR as a terrorist organization in 2014.  Yet over the next two years, Obama kept appointing CAIR members to highly sensitive federal government security positions.  The Muslim Brotherhood's very dangerous “Fifth Column” has been well established within US Government Agencies. 

“Muslim Victimhood” has helped masquerade the Muslim Brotherhood, CAIR, and MPAC members trying to position themselves alongside legitimate civil rights organizations, despite their very dangerous “Radical Islamic Terror” links.  They have a history of obstructing Federal Law Enforcement Agencies from indoctrinating new graduates of the Federal Law Enforcement and the FBI Academies about the dangers that ties members of the Muslim Brotherhood, CAIR, and MPAC have to “Radical Islamic Terrorism.”  They also try to impede investigations, by calling attention to Obama administration new policies, intimidating witnesses, using “Muslim Victimization” as a defense, and by using other attempts to halt investigations into activities of accused Jihadists. 

 

The Muslim Brotherhood, CAIR, and the MPAC appointees in the Obama administration have scrubbed a great deal of information about the 28,000 worldwide racist murderous attacks against gays, Christians, and Jews by “Radical Islamic Terrorists,” from all training manuals and historic reference material.  To date, the 380 “Radical Islamic Terrorists” who have been convicted in US Federal courts for terrorism acts and threats against the US government, were not Americans, they were foreigners who supported the Muslim Brotherhood, CAIR, and MPAC Jihadist doctrine.  

 

Historic information and reference books about “Radical Islamic Terrorism” that was provided to the FBI, CIA, DHS, the Border Patrol, Custom Law Enforcement, the US Armed Forces, and other Law Enforcement Agencies nationally, in order to acquaint them with the ties that CAIR, the Muslim Brotherhood, and MPAC had to Jihad, have been scrubbed by Muslim Brotherhood appointees in the Obama administration.  

 

Philip Haney's publicly stated he was ordered by DHS supervisors to remove the names of suspected terrorists and terrorist organizations that had strong ties to the Muslim Brotherhood from the DHS databases; he inputted many of the 850 names through the course of investigations he was conducting.  That was a violation of US Federal Law.  That critical information had been painstakingly accumulated over 8 years of intensive investigation by US Intelligent Agencies during the Bush administration.(UTT 6/20/16)

 

Members of the Muslim Brotherhood, CAIR, and MPAC in key positions of leadership throughout the Obama administration have used the hammer of  “Political Correctness” and every other means possible, to threaten Government employees.  Anyone in the US Government agencies who uses terms that the members of the Muslim Brotherhood, CAIR, and MPAC disapprove of, such as Muslim, Islamic, Hamas, Jihadist, Sharia, Wahhabism, Genocide, Radical Islamic Terrorism, Army of Islam, etc. have felt the very negative results of their using those terms vocally, on their computers, or in any drafted documents.    

 

The Muslim Brotherhood, CAIR, and MPAC have created paranoia by employees in federal bureaucracies, that if they use the above listed terms, which are not “Politically Correct,” there will be repercussions.  Using those terms will stigmatize the federal employee and he will be viewed as bigoted and a racist.  They have coined a word to slander the federal employee; that word is “Islamophobia.” 

 

Just the opposite is true, “Radical Islamic Terrorist” are racist and bigoted, and have been murdering gays, Christians, and Jews in 28,000 attacks worldwide for many years.  Obama’s Muslim Brotherhood, CAIR, and MPAC appointees in the US Government are using “Islamophobia” to stifle anyone, who would expose Jihadists perpetrated as “Radical Islamic Terrorists” and who identified the dangerous threat Sharia poses to the US Constitution and to the rule of law in the United States.  

 

Mr. Haney stated: "The gravitational force of the Global Islamic Movement is not radicalization, the gravitational force of the Global Islamic Movement is the implementation of Sharia Law."  The primary goal of the Global Islamic Movement is “the destruction of Western values” and “the destruction of Christianity.”  Both Mr. Higgins and Mr. Haney made it clear the “Jihadist” threat to America must be addressed immediately or we will suffer significant consequences for our inaction and for allowing our leaders to surrender their duties to our enemies. (UTT 6/20/16)

 

ISIS “Radical Islamic Terrorists” have been spreading their genocide of gays, Christians and Jews beyond the Middle East, worldwide employing bombs, box cutters, shoe bombs, suicide vests, throwing people off high buildings, in stoning people to death, using underwear bombs, employing crucifixions, using commercial airliners as missiles, burning people alive, setting destructive fires promoted by ISIS, using swords for beheading, drowning people in cages, setting off roadside IEDs, burying children alive, using acid baths to immerse people in, using machetes to hack people to death, honor killings of girls, exploding pressure cooker bombs, and knifing people to death.  “Radical Islamic Terrorism” racist attacks cannot be prevented by passing new restrictive gun laws.

 

There have been 86 racists attacks in the US against gays, Christians, and Jews by “Radical Islamic Terrorists.”  Many of the 86 racist attacks in the US were conducted without guns at all.  Those terrorist attacks were planned and conducted where Americans were prevented from carrying guns such as in Fort Hood, the Little Rock Recruiting Office, the Chattanooga Naval Reserve Center, the San Bernardino State Office Building, and the Orlando gay night club.  

 

Obama and his Democratic allies in Congress covered up the Jihadist motivated racist attacks against Americans in the US, by calling for stricter guns laws that violate the 2nd Amendment and would result in preventing law abiding Americans from defending themselves.  Mr. Higgins warned, "Every time one of these attacks happens in the United States, you see the Left in unison with the Muslim Brotherhood immediately responding with direct attacks on the First and Second Amendments.  That is not by accident, and we are going to continue to see that."(UTT 6/20/16)

 

“Freedom of Speech” guaranteed in the US Constitution, permits employees in US government agencies to freely express facts.  However employees of US government agencies are no longer allowed to identify the “Radical Islamic Terrorist” threat facing the Republic and using the previously listed descriptive terms of Islam: they are threatened with being labeled as bigots, racists, and being stigmatized with “Islamophobia,” and that using such terms may result in the loss of promotions, the loss of merit pay raises, failure to be removed from employment probation, and may ultimately result in the loss of their jobs.   

                                                             

What most Americans do not know, is that after CAIR’s appealed its Racketeering, Influence, and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) conviction in a lower court, the appeal was turned down by the US Court of Appeals in the District of Columbia.  The case involved CAIR’s racketeering, its massive criminal fraud schemes, and its attempt to cover up crimes against hundreds of American who were victimized.  Despite the RICO case, the fact that CAIR opposes the US Constitution, and CAIR’s ultimate goal is to install Sharia Law, Obama continued to appointment CAIR’s members to senior positions in the Obama administration. 

 

Those new Obama administration policies developed by the Muslim Brotherhood on how suspected Muslim Terrorists can be interrogated by federal Law Enforcement Officers, contributed greatly to the slaughter of 49 innocent gay Americans and the wounding of 53 others.  Omar Saddiqui Mateen, the son of refugees who was unable to assimilate, was given three passes by the FBI, because of the Muslim Brotherhood’s new hands off policies, which were instituted by the Obama administration.  

 

Possibly Mateen was treated differently, because he was previously issued a firearm license so he could work for DHS.  He alleged “Muslim Victimization” three times when questioned by the FBI, and possibly because his father, Seddique Mateen, had been received by the Obama administration at the White House and the State Department.  The Obama administration has been covering up the fact that Mateen’s father, who had very strong ties with the Taliban Islamic Terrorists, had been received at the White House and the State Department (we have photos of Seddique Mateen in the White House and at the State Department.)   

 

Recently, Attorney General Lynch, made a public statement about the Orlando Massacre; her ignorant “talking points” were most probably drafted by the CAIR and MPAC appointees in the Obama White House.  Lynch did identify the “Radical Islamic Terrorist” who perpetrated the Orlando racist massacre of 49 innocent gay Americans and wounded 53 others; a Jihadist who believed all gays should be put to death.  Like defendants with a losing case, being forced to cough up bits of discovery, it took the Lynch’s Justice Department a week to release the factual, formally redacted transcript of the Orlando shooter’s 911 call “pledging allegiance to ISIS.”  

 

Instead Lynch stated, as if Americans are stupid, “we may never know what motivated Omar Saddiqui Mateen to commit those murders—she further stated “what would be effective as a resolution in combating terrorism in the US is compassion, unity, and love as part of a larger pattern to wipe out Islamic Terrorism”, making such asinine comments is like telling children to go play in traffic.  Lynch, in the wake of the San Bernardino shootings, took “Islamophobia” to a higher level, by threatening to prosecute anti-Muslim hate speech---probably talking points given her by Obama’s Muslim Brotherhood appointees in the White House.

In an article in Townhall in May 2015, Sebastian Gorka warned against Obama’s greatest concern, which is not to offend Muslims, rather than informing the American people openly and honestly describing Radical Islamic Terrorists “as an enemy that seeks to spread its Sharia-based totalitarian rule over the world (including in the United States). In so doing, Obama ignores Sun Tzu’s dictum about knowing your enemy if you wish to win — he does so at our nation’s peril.” 

What the American people should be asking is why Obama has brought in nearly 1 million Muslim Refugees from the Middle East and Africa and resettled them in 180 cities throughout the US, while excluding Christian refugees from entering, and refusing to permit the FBI to vet those refugees to determine if they had terrorist ties.  While Obama knew ISIS seeks to spread Sharia-based totalitarian rule in the US, there have been 86 “Radical Islamic Terrorist” attacks by either those refugees or the children of those refugees.

What Obama has been hiding from the American people, is that since he called ISIS the JV team and refused to eradicate the Caliphate, ISIS has recruited thousands Jihadists, and now, after all their battle deaths, ISIS still has 80,000 trained “Radical Islamic Terrorists” spreading their Jihad worldwide, and many have made their way into the United States through the wide open southern border.  ISIS now holds territory populated by more than 6 million people and it has affiliates in at least seven nations, including West Africa. 

The enemy is already here, in a “Fifth Column” in the Federal Government, and in “Radical Islamic Terrorist” cells in all 50 states.  Over the last 2 years, the FBI has arrested over 103 ISIS terrorists, and they are currently prosecuting 1000+ RADICAL Islamic Terrorist cases in all 50 states.  Obama has failed miserably in protecting the American people from 86 racist “Radical Islamic Terrorist” attacks in the US (60 occurred in the last 2 years). 

If the United States ever hopes to defeat ISIS and the 80,000 murderous “Radical Islamic Terrorists,” the next President must move away from the failed Obama’s alliance with the largest state sponsor of terrorism in the world, Shite Iran, and realign the nation back with America’s traditional Arabic Sunni allies, that the nation worked with so well for the last 70 years (Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Morocco, and Bahrein); the NATO nations need their cooperation and support if it hopes to destroy ISIS.

Ban on Transgender Troops to Be Lifted July 1

By Capt Joseph R. John, June 26, 2016  

The Joint Chiefs of Staff should never permit anything to degrade the “Combat Effectiveness”, morale, and the unit cohesiveness of combat units in the US Armed Forces.  Recruiting and allowing transgender individuals to enter the US Armed Forces will further degrade the “Combat Effectiveness”, morale, and unit cohesiveness of the US Armed Forces.  

 

Obama’s Social Experiment on Diversity permitted the recruiting and entry of gay individuals into the US Armed Forces; that policy resulted in the rape of 11,000 straight male recruits by gays; something that has never happened before.  Obama’s destructive Social Experiment on Diversity has negatively affected unit morale, retention, recruiting, unit cohesiveness, and “Combat Effectiveness” of the US Armed Forces.

 

The entry of transgender individual will result in hundreds of the expensive sex change surgeries (that will be the main reason they will join), it will result in serious unit conflicts, destabilizing events that will destroying unit cohesion, and their presence will further degrading of unit morale----it is another of Obama’s destructive policies that have been degrading the US Armed Forces for nearly 8 years.  The US Armed Forces is not a laboratory for Social Experiments, its primary function is to defend the Republic from enemies. 

 

Will the “do nothing” Republican leadership in Congress continue to do “absolutely nothing”, as Ryan and McConnell have done absolutely nothing to oppose this latest destructive policy that will degrade the effectiveness of the US Armed Forces.  Ryan and McConnell watched on the side lines, while Obama hollowed out of the US Armed Forces, degrading its strength to the level it stood at prior to WWII, while China, Russia, Iran, and Islamic State keeps growing and modernizing their military forces.  

 

This latest Obama destructive military policy is unconscionable, and the Joint Chiefs of Staff should hang their heads in shame for not resigning on mass!!

Ban on Transgender Troops to Be Lifted July 1

June 25, 2016/4 Comments/in FeaturedNews /by Tom Vanden Brook

The Pentagon plans to announce the repeal of its ban on transgender service members July 1, a controversial decision that would end nearly a year of internal wrangling among the services on how to allow those troops to serve openly, according to Defense officials.

Top personnel officials plan to meet as early as Monday to finalize details of the plan, and Deputy Defense Secretary Bob Work could sign off on it by Wednesday, according to a Defense official familiar with the timetable but who spoke on condition of anonymity because officials were not authorized to speak publicly about it. Final approval would come from Defense Secretary Ash Carter, and the announcement will be on the eve of the Fourth of July weekend.

The plan would direct each branch of the armed services over a one-year period to implement new policies affecting recruiting, housing and uniforms for transgender troops, one official said.

Carter announced last year that the ban, which affects a fraction of the military’s 1.3 million active duty members, would be lifted unless a review showed that doing so would have “adverse impact on military effectiveness and readiness.”

That phrase raised concerns on Capitol Hill where a key lawmaker questioned whether an “honest and balanced assessment” could be made of the effects on “military readiness, morale and good order and discipline” under Carter’s guidelines for the review.
