Schweizer Exposes More Joe loose lips-Biden Corruption — It’s ‘Going to be a Central Issue’ in 2020


{ pjmedia.com } ~ Rumors swirl that former Vice President Joe loose lips-Biden will be a leading contender for the dummycrats-Democratic presidential nomination in 2020… Extremely early polls find strong support for him in his party. But investigative journalist and bestselling author Peter Schweizer has unearthed loose lips-Biden’s history of corruption, and that will prove a major issue in the upcoming election. “This is, I think, going to be a central issue” for 2020, Schweizer, best known for uncovering liar-Hillary Clinton’s corruption but also the author of the new book “Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends,” told Fox News’ Steve Hilton. Schweizer’s book came out in March, but since then new evidence of the loose lips-Biden family corruption has come to light. Schweizer told Hilton about a bank account unearthed in a New York conviction against Devon Hunter, a friend of the former vice president’s son, Hunter loose lips-Biden. “A bank account that Hunter loose lips-Biden drew a lot of money from and that a lot of foreign entities put a lot of money into,” the author noted. “Just to give you an idea, over a 14-month period, from 2014 through early 2016, while Joe loose lips-Biden is vice president of the United States, a Ukrainian company called Burisma — it’s controlled by a very corrupt oligarch — sends three million dollars into this account.” “A Chinese government entity called Bohai Harvest — which is run by the Bank of China — sends $650,000 into this account,” Schweizer added…   https://pjmedia.com/video/schweizer-exposes-more-joe-biden-corruption-its-going-to-be-a-central-issue-in-2020/?utm_source=PJMCoffeeBreak&utm_medium=email&utm_term=August2018


A Crime Against Humanity


{ spectator.org } ~ Last week at the New Criterion, conservative scholar James Piereson posed an interesting question, arguing the affirmative: is socialism a hate crime?… As is his custom, Piereson makes a solid case. His isn’t a complex argument — Piereson simply totals up the corpses thanks to the world’s chief practitioners of socialist governance in the 20thcentury, and concludes that anything which leads to the deaths of more than 110 million souls has to be a hate crime by the definition afforded us by the modern gatekeepers of the term. After all, the evidence for its malignant effects is obvious to anyone with sufficient curiosity to look at the historical record. The socialist movement has been responsible for the murder, imprisonment, and torture of many millions, and perhaps hundreds of millions, of innocent people during its heyday in the twentieth century. That history of murder and tyranny continues on a smaller scale today in the handful of countries living under the misfortune of socialism — for example, Cuba, North Korea, Vietnam, and more recently Venezuela. How do socialists escape the indictment that, in view of the historical record, they are purveyors of tyranny and mass murder? Many deny that Stalin, Mao, and the others were true socialists and, indeed, that socialism has never really been tried — a manifest absurdity. Senator commie-Sanders and others claim that they are for something called “dummycrats-democratic socialism,” a popular and peaceful version of the doctrine, but that’s what Lenin, Mao, and Castro said until they seized power and immediately began to sing a different tune. Democracy and diversity are what they say when out of power; tyranny and authoritarianism are what they practice once in power. That is the tried-and-true technique of all socialist movements. And a bit more…The question is often asked: why does the same thing happen over and over in socialist regimes? Socialist plans and policies — five-year plans repeated again and again, collectivization of agriculture, nationalization of industry, the concentration of power into the hands of a few — lead inevitably to economic collapse, repression, large-scale killing, and democide. It has happened according to script wherever socialism has been tried. Socialism always and everywhere begins with humanistic promises and ends in barbarism…   https://spectator.org/a-crime-against-humanity/?utm_source=American+Spectator+Emails&utm_campaign=d02e9a0482-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2018_08_27_08_00&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_797a38d487-d02e9a0482-104608113


The Left Still Doesn’t Know Why It’s Losing


{ spectator.org } ~ In Reagan’s America: Innocents at Home, Garry Wills described the 40th President’s relationship with the voters as “a kind of complicity,”… implying that Reagan and the electorate had colluded to commit some sort of crime. The offense was, of course, their mutual refusal to imbibe the propaganda ladled out by the liberal establishment and the media. This defiance caused Reagan and his supporters to be written off by their “betters” as a collection of cretins. History proved precisely the opposite, but the Beltway brain trust never absorbed the lesson. They are thus repeating their error with President Trump and his supporters. In the New York Times, for example, Charles Blow advises us that the President has hijacked the GOP and now presides over a reign of terror that prevents “mainstream Republicans” from taking a stand against him. Having difficulty remembering a Times writer acknowledging the existence of “mainstream Republicans?” The Gray Lady’s editorial position has long been that the GOP is a gang of dirty rotten scoundrels whose sole mission is to do down widows and orphans on behalf of rightwing robber barons and rabid racists. Blow would have us believe that, under Trump, the GOP base has further devolved into a national threat: Republicanism is Trumpism, with no daylight between them. Traditional Republicans are now afraid to stand on principle because they do so at great peril of being drummed out of politics. The voters are now Trump’s noxious base, ergo Trump holds each of their fates in his hands.… Viewed that way, Trump’s base itself becomes the enemy of the Republic. But the President’s base is “viewed that way” only by TDS victims. The dummycrats-Democrats are already losing support because of the #WalkAway movement. Meanwhile Trump’s “beastly base,” as Blow also calls them, already consists of about 63 million voters and public opinion polls show that his support among crucial dummycrats-Democratic constituencies is increasing dramatically. If Blow had any sense, he would realize that insulting the customer isn’t an effective sales technique. He would hesitate to alienate any additional voters. But neither Blow nor his colleagues are rational. Last week another TDS victim, Dana Milbank, wrote the following: Trump and his Fox News-viewing supporters dock their spaceship in a parallel universe where truth isn’t truth. At Tuesday night’s rally in West Virginia, Trump’s irony-challenged audience could be heard chanting “Drain the Swamp!”… Republican lawmakers fear that with 87 percent of Republican voters backing Trump, crossing him is political suicide… https://spectator.org/the-left-still-doesnt-know-why-its-losing/?utm_source=American+Spectator+Emails&utm_campaign=d02e9a0482-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2018_08_27_08_00&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_797a38d487-d02e9a0482-104608113


FBI Agent Told Congress the Bureau Used Leaked Stories to Obtain Spy Warrants

by Chuck Ross

{ dailycaller.com } ~ An FBI special agent told Congress earlier in August that the bureau has used leaked news stories as justifications to obtain surveillance warrants against American citizens… a source familiar with the testimony tells The Daily Caller News Foundation. During a closed-door interview with the House Judiciary and House Oversight Committees on Friday, Special Agent Jonathan Moffa told congressional investigators that the FBI and Justice Department have leaked stories to the press and then used them to obtain warrants under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). “He more or less admitted that the FBI/DOJ have previously leaked info to the press and then used stories from the press as justifications for FISA warrants,” a source who took part in Moffa’s interview told TheDCNF…  https://dailycaller.com/2018/08/27/source-fbi-congress-leaked-stories-spy-warrants/


In the Capital of British Pakistan

by Daniel Greenfield

{ sultanknish.blogspot.com } ~ Muslim terrorists attacking the British Parliament in cars has become an annual tradition.

Khalid Masood did it last year, running over pedestrians before slamming into the railing of Westminster Palace, and then going on a brief stabbing spree that ended when he was shot dead by an armed police officer, who unlike the unarmed police officer he stabbed to death, had a gun because he was protecting a government official. 2017’s parliamentary attack ended with 5 dead and dozens injured.

This year, Salih Khater decided to have a go at parliament even though it was out for the summer recess. He smashed his car into a barrier near Westminster Palace after running over a number of pedestrians. The Sudanese refugee was much less successful at it, wounding only 3 people and killing no one.

Both Muslim terrorists not only carried out attacks against the same location, they had been living at addresses 10 minutes apart. Sater, 2018’s parliamentary terrorist, had been living above the Bunna internet café in South Birmingham. Masood, 2017’s parliamentary terrorist, had made his home over the Shiraz Persian restaurant, owned by a devout Muslim, also in Birmingham.

Muslims make up over 1 in 5 persons of the population of this former Britishworking-class stronghold. Sparkhill, named after the gently flowing Spark Brook, once a hub of British life, has had its history erased by the migrant flood, until it was dubbed by BBC’s Citizen Khan sitcom as “the capital of British Pakistan.” The Mermaid Inn, a local landmark pub which dated back centuries, was turned into an ethnic restaurant. Various other historic pubs have declined into grimy Pakistani eateries.

Sparkhill’s British past is becoming as much a matter of archeology as the Roman coins occasionally dug up under its streets. Its present is violent, murderous and Islamic. Its future is yet to be decided.

It’s only fitting that the “Capital of British Pakistan” should be at war with the British Parliament.

The “Capital of British Pakistan” was also where the ‘Three Musketeers’, Naweed Ali, Khobaib Hussain, and Mohibur Rahman had etched “Kafir”, meaning non-Muslim Infidel, in Arabic, on their meat cleavers in preparation for a killing spree last year. Evelyn Road, where Ali and Hussain had lived, was once famous for its Church of the English Martyrs. But there is a different breed of martyr in Sparkhill now.

These three Birmingham terror plotters shouldn’t be confused with Irfan Naseer, Irfan Khalid, and Ashik Ali, who had called themselves the Four Lions while plotting to kill as many Britons as possible through everything from setting off nail bombs, to shooting up synagogues to attaching blades to a car and running over non-Muslims.

“Just drive it into people in crowded area,” Khalid had suggested.

The terror plot was funded by collecting on Ramadan for Muslim Aid. Some of the money went to a Muslim school. The rest for terror.

Nasser hailed from Sparkhill and Khalid from Sparkbrook.

They were among eleven Birmingham Muslims sentenced in that Islamic terror plot.

1 in 10 imprisoned Islamic terrorists in the UK came out of the “Capital of British Pakistan”. It was where the money for the massive Muslim terrorist attacks in Paris and Brussels changed hands. The money, which helped kill over 100 people in two other countries, came from welfare payments made to Anwar Haddouchi, a Muslim in Birmingham, even though he had long since left to join ISIS. Two other Muslim colonists in Birmingham, Zakaria Boufassil, and Mohammed Ali Ahmed, passed along the cash.

And that’s not the only international terror connection to Sparkhill. Sparkhill was also where Imam Tarik Chadlioui, the Muslim religious leader accused of contact with one of the Bataclan Islamic terror bombers who killed 89 people in Paris, lived and is facing extradition to Spain over Jihad videos.

The roads of the Jihad lead to Birmingham.

When Al Shabaab, the Somali Islamic terror group allied with Al Qaeda, filmed a recruitment video aimed at Muslim settlers in the UK, it listed Birmingham as its top source of recruits.

The UK’s first Al Qaeda bomber came out of Birmingham. Over in Sparkbrook, Moinal Abedin had turned his house into a bomb factory after 9/11. After serving his sentence, he’s a free man in Birmingham. Some years later, Rashid Rauf plotted to blow up planes flying from the UK to the US using soda cans. A soda can was eventually used by ISIS to blow up a passenger plane in Egypt killing everyone on board.

Birmingham’s real Citizen Khan emerged when Parviz Khan of Alum Rock led a plot to kidnap and behead a British soldier. Zahoor Iqbal, one of his henchmen, was also from Birmingham. Last year, Zahid Hussain, was busted with a pressure cooker bomb in Birmingham. Like a number of other Muslim terrorists, he had used Christmas tree lights as a detonator and planned to blow it up on a rail line.

Like Citizen Khan and Rauf, Hussain was from Alum Rock in Birmingham. Ummariyat Mirza was also arrested last year in Alum Rock for preparing for a knife attack. His wife, Madihah Taheer, was also arrested. His sister had been passing around pictures of severed heads and other ISIS propaganda.

“Can we get married already?” Taheer had asked. “I want you to kill people for me I have a list.”

Possible targets for the Birmingham knife attack had included the RAF and a synagogue.

Junaid Hussain, the head of ISIS’ Cyber-Caliphate unit, which published the addresses of American soldiers, hailed from Birmingham. As did many other ISIS recruits including Awat Hamasalih, Rasheed Benyahiya, Gabriel Ramus, Humza Ali, Anas Abdala, Abdelatif Gaini, and Tareena Shakil, who took her toddler with her to join ISIS, and Ali Akbar Zeb. A number of these were the so-called “paintball Jihadis”.

Yusuf Sarwar and Mohammed Nahin Ahmed were jailed on charges of preparing for terrorist acts.

These are some of the examples why Birmingham has been dubbed “Terror Central” by the British press.

British authorities meanwhile are up to their old ostrich games. Shortly after the latest Muslim attack on the British Parliament, they dispatched armed police to protect Birmingham mosques from some broken windows. Had there been armed police on the scene during last year’s attack on Parliament, some of the five victims of that Muslim terrorist attack might still be alive. That’s real broken windows policing.

Amnesty’s UK Director called the broken windows, rather than the murderous terror attack that preceded them, “another shocking example of a hateful attack on our streets.”

There are no shortage of hateful attacks coming out of Birmingham. But they’re coming from inside the mosques, not from outside. And yet the media and the authorities have already found it more urgent that windows were broken in a mosque than that a terrorist attacked a center of British government.

At the Birmingham Central Mosque, whose chair had attacked counterterrorism as Islamophobic for singling out Muslims, and which had booed a Muslim police commander after the previous parliament attack, a trustee whined about Islamophobia and claimed that they are the real victims.

“It’s affecting people who are the most vulnerable in society.”

The most vulnerable people in society aren’t Muslim settlers in Birmingham. They’re the tourists visiting the British parliament in 2019. Or any time another Birmingham Muslim terrorist tries to run them over.

And maybe the next “Citizen Khan”, from the capital of British Pakistan, will successfully attack the capital of Britain.
