Facebook’s forcible suppression of opposition
Thursday, July 27, 2017 8:33 PM

More of Facebook’s forcible suppression of opposition. Below is a screenshot my European partner Anders Gravers took after he tried to share my post about Google’s scrub of search results when it comes to articles that criticize Islam. When he clicked to share, FB said only people that I have chosen in a specific audience are allowed to see it. I HAVE CHOSEN NO SUCH AUDIENCE. I am public. Everything I write, share is public. We need legislation to free the choke-hold Facebook and social media giants have on our first amendment rights.

Thomas Lifson of The American Thinker writes here:

Facebook has become the dominant force in the distribution of news in the United States, making it powerful beyond the dreams of Edward Bernays.  If Facebook determines that a source of news is to be shunned, the results can be catastrophic, effectively silencing the voice involved just as surely as cutting off the loudspeakers at a large rally would silence a speaker.  That makes this dispatch from The Gulf Today, which seems to have been ignored by our media, very disturbing:

ISLAMABAD: The Facebook management has assured Pakistan that it will remove fake accounts and explicit, hateful and provocative material that incites violence and terrorism.

The commitment was given by Vice President of Facebook Joel Kaplan who called on Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Saturday. …

The interior minister, the spokesperson said, has been playing a proactive role in engaging the internet service providers and finding solution to the issue of misuse of social media.

This also included convening of a special meeting of the ambassadors of the Muslim countries in March on a single-point agenda to discuss blasphemous content on social media and how to effectively raise voice of the entire Muslim world against the madness unleashed against Islam and holy personalities in the name of freedom of expression.

“Blasphemous content” means anything remotely critical or questioning of Islam, Mohammed, or any Muslim doctrine.  Sharia forbids it on penalty of death.  Even among Muslims, accusations can fly of blasphemy for even implying something negative, and the holier-than-thou crowd can always resort to violence because holy violence is sanctified in Isalm.  “Turn the other cheek” plays no role at all in sharia-compliant zones.

“Nothing is more sacred to us than our religion and our holy personalities,” the minister observed.

He said that the government of Pakistan firmly believes in freedom of expression but cannot allow anyone to misuse social media for hurting religious sentiments or undertaking unlawful activities.

Nisar said that Pakistan appreciates the understanding shown by the Facebook administration and the cooperation being extended on these issues.

These sharia-compliant policies are not new at Facebook, and they have already taken a toll on freedom of speech.  As Pamela Geller knows all too well:

My feed is blocked from my millions of followers on Facebook, and I have seen my circulation drop precipitously in the past three months. For news publishers, Facebook is the motherboard of link traffic. No news site can survive without them. None of us are immune, which is why my traffic is down upwards of 70% since the block. My Facebook page has a million followers; add my organizations to that, and it is roughly 1.5 million people. Now imagine their sharing capability, and their friends and their friends – you get the picture. It’s how we fight fake news. All of my FB followers experience similar issues with their posts and shares. I receive scores of emails everyday from readers telling me of new blocks, bans and Facebook jail sentences. It’s why I am suing.

Why the block? Because under Islamic law, you cannot criticize Islam. Facebook adhering to the most extreme and brutal ideology on the face of the earth should trouble all of us, because Mark Zuckerberg has immense power. He controls the flow of information. He controls what you see and don’t see on Facebook. We did not give him the power to abridge our unalienable freedoms.

Pamela believes that the Sherman Antitrust Act ought to be used to break up Facebook.  But because social networks require the broadest possible extent, I am not sure that that breakup would work.  The resulting half-networks would be crippled.  How would users be allocated to one or another of the new networks resulting from the breakup, for instance?  People would reconfigure their memberships anyway.

I would much prefer legislation that requires social media to censor only direct threats, making it illegal to delete content on any other basis.  That threat is necessary to counter the pressure Facebook obviously faces from Muslim governments like Pakistan’s.  Losing a billion-plus-strong market like the 57 Muslim countries is obviously undesirable for Facebook, so its management is responding to pressure.

The value of that market would have to be balanced against the value of markets like the United States that could stand up for free speech.  By seeming to cave in to the demand that Islam be the only subject that cannot be discussed openly and honestly, anywhere in the world, Facebook is in the process of handing the first global triumph of sharia, enforcing its ban on blasphemy.

Muslim mob brutally beat non-Muslims on London streets after asking “Why aren’t you a Muslim?”
Thursday, July 27, 2017 8:13 PM

Imagine if anyone ever did this to a Muslim. War.

As they beat their Christian victims, they laughed and filmed it.

The victim was confused but when one of them said “I’m a Muslim, what are you?” he answered “I’m a Christian”.

The attacker shouted “Why aren’t you a Muslim?” before punching him twice, breaking his glasses and causing a 2cm cut above his left eye.

One witness feared the men were ISIS terrorists. Whats the difference?

Muslim men attacked random strangers because they were white “non-Muslims” in violent rampage through city centre

One of the attackers shouted “Why aren’t you a Muslim?” at one of the victims before punching him twice and leaving him with a cut above his eye

The Mirror, July 27, 2017:

Three Muslim men have been jailed after strangers were randomly attacked in a city centre for being white “non-Muslims”.

Counter-terrorism officers raided the homes of Amin Mohmed, Mohammed Patel and Faruq Patel following the shocking incidents, a court heard.

One witness feared the men were ISIS terrorists when they launched their rampage in Liverpool city centre on March 20 last year.

The court heard how one of the attackers shouted “Why aren’t you a Muslim?” at one of the victims before punching him twice and leaving him with a cut above his eye, the Liverpool Echo reports.

The drunken yobs targeted three unknown men before Mohmed, 24, and Mohammed, 20, set upon Gary Bohanna when he revealed he was Christian.

Laughing Faruq, 19, who was not convicted of a racial or religious motive, then filmed Mohmed punching St Helens councillor Paul Lynch to the ground, as his terrified girlfriend tried to protect him, Liverpool Crown Court heard.

The judge, Recorder Louise Brandon, said: “This was a disgraceful and sustained campaign of violence carried out on the streets of this city.”

Paul Treble, prosecuting, said witness Edris Nosrati, who is Muslim, spotted two of the gang attacking a man in Bold Street at around 3.30am.

Mr Treble said: “He was concerned because one of them seemed to be using racist language, talking about Muslims and Christians.

One of them came up to Mr Nosrati and said ‘are you a Muslim?’ Mr Nosrati said he was, but the man said ‘well, what’s the Muslim word?’”

He said Mr Nosrati replied with a “well-known” Arabic phrase: “There is only one God, and Muhammad is a messenger.”

Mr Treble said: “He said it’s a phrase often linked with ISIS.

“He was concerned as to their exact intent and that they might be associated in some way to an extremist organisation.”

Mr Nosrati was told “you can go”, but when he tried to stop them punching another man, one replied: “It’s none of your business.”

Faruq Patel

Mr Nosrati followed the gang to Renshaw Street, where Mr Bohanna was asked: “What are you?”

The victim was confused but when one of them said “I’m a Muslim, what are you?” he answered “I’m a Christian”.

The attacker shouted “Why aren’t you a Muslim?” before punching him twice, breaking his glasses and causing a 2cm cut above his left eye.

The gang then encountered Mr Lynch, Labour councillor for Moss Bank, and his girlfriend Jill Newton.

Footage taken by Faruq captured Mohmed punch Mr Lynch with a “sickening blow” that could be “seen and heard”.

No racist comments were used, but Liverpool John Moores University student Faruq could be heard laughing as the victim fell.

Mr Nosrati called police but Faruq fled, so the witness chased and caught him.

CNN’s New Fake News Hitman: Simon Ostrovsky
Thursday, July 27, 2017 7:18 PM

He achieved his goal. Shortly after the ambush, Google AdSense suspended my account. For good. Only one political opinion is acceptable in the American mainstream today. Simon Ostrovsky is one of the most ruthless enforcers of this groupthink.

“Meet the new fake news hitman at CNN,” by Joseph Farah, WND, July 27, 2017:

I told you last Wednesday about the coming attack by CNN on the pioneer independent news agency WND – and, by extension, all alternative news sources.

It’s coming from CNN’s new star digital reporter – Simon Ostrovsky, a former Soviet veteran of Al Jazeera – who, in May, ambushed crusading anti-Shariah activist Pamela Geller, a courageous journalist and columnist for WND with a track record of braving death threats, violent attacks by jihadi terrorists and the lawless tactics of the Muslim Brotherhood.

“Ostrovsky asked me to bring my laptop to CNN’s studios so that I could show him my Google AdSense account and Google Analytics, to show the precipitous drop in referrals from Facebook, Google AdSense, YouTube and related sources,” Geller recounted in a recent WND column. “I did. Ostrovsky saw that revenue from Facebook was down from $150 a day at this time six months ago to $30 a day now. But Ostrovsky had lied in his emails to me. He wasn’t really interested in how Facebook and the rest were censoring me at all. He had a thick stack of copies of posts that were 10 years old and older from my website. He was calling out my advertisers, claiming that I was inciting to war crimes and that these advertisers were supporting my incitement by placing ads on my website. ‘Advertisers should know what they’re supporting,’ he said. He pointed to a 2006 headline in which I had called for bombing Gaza, because of the rockets they were firing at Israeli civilian installations. This was the basis for his claim that I was inciting war crimes.”

You should read Geller entire column to understand what his game is – and CNN’s as well.

Ostrovsky began his work at CNN in February. His first attack on the independent media came in May. Sounds like this former Al Jazeera hack, working for the premier fake news outlet in the world today, CNN, has a beat.

As I told you last week, Ostrovsky is out to make a name for himself by going after the competition – not just WND, but the free media generally, the non-drivebys, the non-state-controlled press that doesn’t follow the strictures of the Soviet-born activist’s youth nor the guys in the boardroom of CNN. Watch for it. It’s coming.

“There’s an imminent attack being prepared in the God-forsaken fake newsrooms of CNN Investigations,” I wrote a week ago. “I thought I’d alert you to this and prepare you for what I believe will be an all-out campaign by the network to discourage advertisers from working with independent news operations such as WND.com. Breitbart.com, DailyCaller.com and others.”

Keep in mind the pretense for getting Pam Geller in the studio. Here’s what Ostrovsky wanted to talk to me about:

  • “The story is looking at the issue of advertising on controversial, non-mainstream-websites.” Get the picture? CNN is “mainstream.” WND and other independent news and media operations are not. Right there that should tell you everything you need to know about the focus of this coming hit piece. CNN is in freefall. Its response is to attack the competition by telling its viewers not to look at sites like this one, but only at self-described “mainstream” media. Its response is to persuade advertisers not to associate with such “non-mainstream” and “controversial” media outlets. “Controversial?” How would you describe CNN? Talk about the pot calling the kettle black …
  • He wants to know if I would talk to him about how much ad revenue Google and other ad networks provide to WND. Why would he want to know that? I’ll let you figure that out.
  • He also asks if three specific “controversial” commentators whose work has been published by WND are paid contributors. This is called, in my business (which happens to be the real news business for the last 40 years), the search for selective facts to buttress a pre-conceived narrative. I note that none of the questions about payment are related to commentators who would be considered “mainstream” by CNN – Democratic activists, “progressive” voices and well-known, familiar voices of common discourse and debate in America today. That betrays the motives and intentions of CNN with this upcoming smear: to paint the darkest, most sinister picture of media companies like WND. This is about systematic misrepresentation. It’s about stringing together convenient “facts” with a pack of lies and carefully calculated and highly produced distortion to mischaracterize what others do.

Does this guy think I was born yesterday?…

Girl, 15, ‘raped in rail station’ by Muslim migrant “suffers second rape after flagging down [Muslim] man for help”
Thursday, July 27, 2017 6:37 PM

“This was a horrifying ordeal for this young girl and we have specially trained officers supporting her,”said Detective Chief Inspector, Tony Fitzpatrick, British Transport Police

What’s horrifying is that the British government welcomed and is deferential to these savages and their rapist culture. How different is this from the tens of thousands of Muslim child rape gangs there that were not prosecuted because law enforcement feared being labeled islamophobic?

Horror heaped upon horror — every girl’s nightmare twice over.

The real “perversion” (PM May) is the perversion of humanity.

According to Muslim law, these Muslims did nothing wrong.

Sex slavery is sanctioned under Islam. At the risk of repeating myself for the umpteenth time, #imgrc=ds5Li81Hb1ieWM%3A" target="_blank">sex slavery and rape of the infidel is sanctioned and rewarded under Islam. Muslim clerics all over the world confirm the right to have sex slaves. It is in the Qur’an — the word of Allah. Politicians keep turning a blind eye, law enforcement keep ignoring it, so this pox on our communities will continue to get worse.

Sex slavery and rape is in accordance with Quran chapter and verse. Sex slaves are war booty. Following a victory, Muhammad would usually distribute the captives, both male and female, as slaves to his soldiers. And Muhammad is the “perfect example for Muslims.” According to Islamic law, Muslim men can take “captives of the right hand” (Qur’an 4:3, 4:24, 33:50). The Qur’an says: “O Prophet! Lo! We have made lawful unto thee thy wives unto whom thou hast paid their dowries, and those whom thy right hand possesseth of those whom Allah hath given thee as spoils of war” (33:50). 4:3 and 4:24 extend this privilege to Muslim men in general. The Qur’an says that a man may have sex with his wives and with these slave girls: “The believers must (eventually) win through, those who humble themselves in their prayers; who avoid vain talk; who are active in deeds of charity; who abstain from sex, except with those joined to them in the marriage bond, or (the captives) whom their right hands possess, for (in their case) they are free from blame.” (Qur’an 23:1-6)

Girl, 15, ‘raped in rail station suffers second attack after flagging down man for help’

By The Telegraph, July 27, 2017:

A double manhunt is under way after a 15-year-old girl was raped by two different attackers, including a man she flagged down for help, police said.

Detectives said the teenager was first assaulted in a secluded part of Birmingham’s Witton railway station, near the Aston Villa football ground, some time between 7pm on Tuesday and 2am the following morning.

The victim had walked to the station with her friend, but is said to have been led away by a man who approached her.

Shortly after that attack, the girl walked out of the station and flagged down a passing vehicle to ask for help, police said. However, after getting in the car she was then raped a second time by another man, investigators said.

“This was a horrifying ordeal for this young girl and we have specially trained officers supporting her”Det Ch Insp Tony Fitzpatrick, British Transport Police

A major investigation, involving detectives from both British Transport Police and West Midlands Police, is now under way to try to identify both attackers and appeal for witnesses.

The first attacker is described as Asian with light skin, brown eyes, was of a skinny build and about 6ft tall. He was wearing a track suit top and bottoms, black trainers and was in his early 20s.

The second attacker is also described as Asian, in his early 20s, 5ft 6/7ins tall, of large build with a tight-cropped beard and was wearing a blue jumper and black jeans.

Detective Chief Inspector Tony Fitzpatrick, of British Transport Police, said: “This was a horrifying ordeal for this young girl and we have specially trained officers supporting her.

“It is now vitally important we investigate exactly what happened on Tuesday morning as well as identifying offenders for both of these awful incidents.

“My detectives are currently examining all available CCTV in an effort to identify the offenders and whilst these enquiries are made, we are keen to speak with any potential witnesses.

“Whilst this incident happened during the early morning and there may not have been many people around, I would be keen to speak with anyone who may have been in the area at the time.

“If you were passing by the station and saw two girls walking with an older man, then please get in touch immediately. Likewise, if you saw any suspicious vehicles close to Witton station close to 2am then please get in touch as soon as possible.”

Mr Fitzpatrick added: “We are now doing all we can to trace the people responsible and bring them to justice.”

Data Firm Backed By Google’s Eric Schmidt Paid Millions By Democratic Committees
Thursday, July 27, 2017 5:00 PM

A data company that’s supported by one of the left’s biggest fans, Eric Schmidt of Google ties, has — coincidentally — been paid big bucks by several Democratic committees, according to Federal Election Commission filings.

Schmidt is the executive chairman of Alphabet, the parent company of Google.

Eric Schmidt, of Google name fame, has some very cozy ties to Democrats — who’ve apparently provided him with some big bucks.

He’s also an investor and board member for Civis Analytics, a consulting firm created by a guy named Dan Wagner. And who’s Dan Wagner?

Well, he happened to serve as the chief analystics officer for Barack Obama’s 2012 presidential campaign.

But wait. The ties and connections go even deeper.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

Civis was “born” out of the Obama campaign after Schmidt, who helped as a recruiter and trainer for the campaign, approached Wagner about starting a company at the conclusion of the election.

The Alphabet chairman, who provided seed funding to Civis and later helped the group raise $22 million, was also found to be working with Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

A number of liberal committees and PACs have paid Civis for its services, including the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC); Democratic National Committee (DNC); Priorities USA Action, the largest liberal super PAC; NextGen Climate Action Committee, a PAC founded by liberal environmentalist Tom Steyer; and Senate Majority PAC, the political action committee started by former Democratic Sen. Harry Reid (Nev.).

Civis has received $22,500 from the DSCC for internet and website services and $27,500 from the DNC for polling expenses so far this year, filings show. From January 2015 to the December 2016, the DSCC paid $2.8 million to Civis for data modeling while the DNC paid the firm $560,000 for polling expenses.

The firm also received $68,400 from Priorities USA Action this year, the largest super PAC that backed Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. George Soros was the largest donor to Priorities, having donated $9.5 million to the group throughout the entirety of the 2016 election cycle. Priorities paid Civis more than $1 million during the cycle.

Schmidt and Google came under scrutiny during the 2016 presidential election after some Republicans claimed Google’s search engine was manipulating results in favor of Hillary Clinton and against Donald Trump. Schmidt responded to the accusations by saying that the company remains neutral.

Schmidt, on a personal level, was later found to be directly helping Clinton’s presidential campaign.

Following the release of John Podesta’s hacked emails, the Washington Free Beacon discovered that Podesta had linked up Schmidt with Cheryl Mills, a longtime Clinton aide, and Robby Mook, Clinton’s campaign manager, in April 2014. The email was sent six months before Clinton had launched her campaign.

During a later release, the Free Beacon found a PDF file attached to an email that verified Schmidt was working directly with the Clinton campaign. The document was tacked onto an email that Mook sent to Mills, Podesta, and David Plouffe, Barack Obama’s former campaign manager.

Teddy Goff, a digital strategist for Clinton’s campaign who was previously the digital director for President Obama’s reelection campaign, wrote the memo.

“I have been kept apprised of the work being done by Eric Schmidt’s group and others working directly and indirectly with your team. On the whole, I am comfortable with where we stand and confident in our roadmap to launch day and beyond,” Goff wrote.

“We have instructed Eric’s team to build the most important products in their portfolio—specifically, the back-end of the website, the ability to accept donations (along with associated features, most importantly the ability to store credit card information), and the ability to acquire email addresses—first,” Goff says. “Given how much time remains between now and launch—and, again, the availability of alternative solutions—I believe there is effectively no chance that these core functionalities will not be in place in time for launch.”

While the Schmidt-backed group is never mentioned by name in the memo, Schmidt provided seed funding to a company called The Groundwork.

Michael Slaby, the former chief integration and innovation officer for the Obama campaign, launched The Groundwork from a company he founded called Timshel.

The Groundwork was ultimately paid hundreds of thousands by Clinton’s campaign. Schmidt was later spotted at Clinton’s election night party wearing a “staff” badge.

Google, whose lobbyists enjoyed direct access to President Obama’s White House, and visited more than 400 times for meetings during his tenure, was forced to pivot in an attempt to court Trump and Republicans following the election.

Google did donate $285,000 to President Donald Trump’s inauguration ceremonies. But that was only after Trump won the election. Prior, he was all Hillary Clinton, all Democratic, all the way.

Muslims Return to Temple Mount, Riot, ATTACK POLICE, Dozens Wounded

Hey, it’s what they do.

Riot, kill, maim, hate and demand we respect it.

BREAKING: Arabs Attack Israeli Police on Temple Mount

Arabs attacked Israeli police on the Temple Mount Thursday as Muslim worshipers returned to the holy site after a 10-day boycott to protest Israeli security measures.

Livestreamed footage taken from the Mount of Olives, overlooking the Temple mount, showed thousands of people milling around the site, with the sounds of gunshots and ambulance sirens clearly heard.

The clashes took place hours after Islamic authorities who are responsible for maintenance at the Dome of the Rock and Al-Aqsa Mosque agreed to call off the boycott after Israeli authorities dismantled security cameras and metal detectors at entrances to the Mount.

The security measures were introduced following the murder of two police officers near the Lion’s Gate area of the compound by three Israeli-Arabs who emerged from the Al Aqsa mosque within the Temple Mount on July 14.

Late Thursday afternoon new protests began in the Bab Hutta neighborhood, in the Muslim Quarter of the Old City, when a gate leading from the neighborhood to the Mount was closed; the gate was later opened, allowing hundreds of Muslims to pour through and into the compound.

18:55 At least 56 people have been injured in the attacks against Israeli police, and the subsequent response by security personnel on the Temple Mount.

18:24 The most recent count is 46 people wounded in the clashes, according to local sources.

17:28 At least 38 people have been wounded in the clashes, according to the Palestinian Red Crescent Society

17:54 Sources in the Old City said that police have closed Damascus and Flower gates to the Old City. It has been impossible to independently confirm that report.

American sharia: Google bows to Muslim pressure, changes search results to conceal criticism of Islam and jihad
Thursday, July 27, 2017 3:42 PM

I speak from first hand experience. Geller Report has been scrubbed from google search results. 15 years of over forty thousands posts. Poof! Gone. The leftist masters of the universe are, without our consent, arbitrarily and capriciously abridging and surrendering our most basic fundamental freedoms. The internet is the last frontier in the war on free speech. We cannot and will not cede the field.

Google bows to Muslim pressure, changes search results to conceal criticism of Islam and jihad

“Google’s first page results for searches of terms such as ‘jihad’, ‘shariah’ and ‘taqiyya’ now return mostly reputable explanations of the Islamic concepts. Taqiyya, which describes the circumstances under which a Muslim can conceal their belief in the face of persecution, is the sole term to feature a questionable website on the first page of results.”

“Reputable” according to whom? “Questionable” according to whom? Google is bowing to pressure from Muslim such as Omar Suleiman without considering whether those who are demanding that the search results be skewed in a particular direction might have an ulterior motive. Could it be that those who are pressuring Google want to conceal certain truths about Islam that they would prefer that non-Muslims not know?

This is a real possibility, but of course Google executives would have to study Islam themselves in order to determine whether or not these Muslims who are pressuring them are misleading them, and that’s not going to happen. Still, they could have done a bit more due diligence, and made some efforts to determine whether those being tarred as “hate groups” really deserved the label, whether the Southern Poverty Law Center was really a reliable and objective arbiter of which groups were and weren’t “hate groups,” and whether the information that Google was suppressing was really inaccurate. Instead, Google seems to have swallowed uncritically everything Omar Suleiman and the others said.

Suleiman, however, still isn’t satisfied: “One leading activist in favor of Google modifying its results told Anadolu Agency he noticed the updated search results and thanked the company for its efforts but said ‘much still needs to be done.’” He claimed that Google has a responsibility to “combat ‘hate-filled Islamophobia’ similar to how they work to suppress extremist propaganda from groups like Daesh and al-Qaeda.”

This should have made Google executives stop and think. The Islamic State (Daesh) and al-Qaeda slaughter people gleefully and call openly for more mass murders. There is no firm evidence that anyone has ever been killed by a “hate-filled Islamophobe,” and the claim that Hamas-linked CAIR and the SPLC make in this article, that this supposed “Islamophobic” rhetoric has led to a rise in hate crimes against Muslims, is supported by not a scintilla of evidence. Suleiman is equating critical words with murderous deeds, and Google should have realized at that point that he had an agenda and wasn’t being honest.

“Suleiman said Google should differentiate between ‘criticism of Islam and hate-filled Islamophobia’, emphasizing the religion should not be infringed upon.”

That’s not clear. He apparently is saying that there is acceptable criticism of Islam that is not “hate-filled Islamophobia,” but if that is so, then the religion can be “infringed upon,” at least by this legitimate criticism, no? Or if the claim that Islam must not be “infringed upon” means that it cannot be criticized, why is that so of Islam but not any other religion?

Suleiman says: “I don’t think Google has a responsibility to portray Muslims positively. I think Google has a responsibility to weed out fear-mongering and hate groups but I don’t want Google to silence critique of Islam, or critique of Muslims.”

The problem with this is that neither Suleiman, nor Hamas-linked CAIR, nor anyone else who has ever said that there was a distinction between legitimate criticism of Islam and “hate-filled Islamophobia” has ever identified anyone he thinks is a legitimate critic of Islam who is not “Islamophobic.” Over 16 books now, as well as thousands of articles and over 45,000 blog posts, I have attempted to present a reasonable, documented, fair and accurate criticism of Islam and explanation of the jihad doctrine. Nevertheless, I’ve been tarred as a purveyor of “hate-filled Islamophobia” by groups and individuals that have never given my work a fair hearing, but have read it only to search of gotcha!-quotes they could wrench away from their obvious benign meaning in order to claim I was saying something hateful. And this isn’t just me — this happens to anyone and everyone who dares to utter a critical word about Islam or jihad, wherever they are on the political spectrum.

This experience, reinforced countless times over a decade and a half, makes me extremely skeptical when Omar Suleiman says that he doesn’t want Google to silence critique of Islam. If he could produce some critique of Islam that he approved of, my skepticism might lessen. But he won’t, and can’t. It seems much more likely that he pressured Google to skew its results so as to deep-six criticism of Islam, but knowing that he couldn’t tell them that he was trying to bring Google into line with Sharia blasphemy laws forbidding criticism of Islam, he told them instead that he wasn’t against criticism of Islam as such, but only against “hate-filled Islamophobia.”

Mr. Suleiman, if you and your colleagues hadn’t spent years tarring rational criticism of Islam that was accurate and presented in good faith as “hate-filled Islamophobia,” I might have believed you. But as one of your primary victims, I don’t.

I discuss the Islamic supremacist initiative to compel the West to accept Sharia blasphemy laws under the guise of stamping out “hate speech,” an initiative that is now galloping forward and achieving immense success, in my new book The Complete Infidel’s Guide to Free Speech (and Its Enemies).

“US Muslim groups welcome changes to Google results,” by Michael Hernandez, Anadolu Agency, July 26, 2017:

Queries about Islam and Muslims on the world’s largest search engine have been updated amid public pressure to tamp down alleged disinformation from hate groups.

However, activists who have worked to bring about the changes say more work remains.

In the past, users on Google seeking information about the religion or its adherents would be presented prominently with what many criticized as propaganda from hate groups.

That has recently changed.

Google’s first page results for searches of terms such as “jihad”, “shariah” and “taqiyya” now return mostly reputable explanations of the Islamic concepts. Taqiyya, which describes the circumstances under which a Muslim can conceal their belief in the face of persecution, is the sole term to feature a questionable website on the first page of results.

Google did not confirm to Anadolu Agency the changes but said it is constantly updating its algorithms.

The search giant referred the agency to a recent blog post in which it said it was working to push back on what it called “offensive or clearly misleading content”.

“To help prevent the spread of such content for this subset of queries, we’ve improved our evaluation methods and made algorithmic updates to surface more authoritative content,” it said.

Combatting Islamophobia

One leading activist in favor of Google modifying its results told Anadolu Agency he noticed the updated search results and thanked the company for its efforts but said “much still needs to be done”.

Imam Omar Suleiman, who has been at the forefront of efforts to combat misleading information about his faith on the web, argued that Google and companies like it have a responsibility to combat “hate-filled Islamophobia” similar to how they work to suppress extremist propaganda from groups like Daesh and al-Qaeda.

Suleiman said Google should differentiate between “criticism of Islam and hate-filled Islamophobia”, emphasizing the religion should not be infringed upon.

“Google does not need to silence criticism of Islam and honest discussions about Islam, but heavily funded hate groups that are able to work the SEOs to get their websites showing up on the first, second page – I think that’s deeply problematic,” the popular imam said, referring to search engine optimization — the way in which websites are able to improve their placement in search engine results.

The task of sorting out legitimate criticism or debate about Islam from misleading information will not be easy, particularly in societies that value freedom of speech — a fact Suleiman, who is the founder and president of the Yaqeen Institute for Islamic Research, acknowledged.

Google told Anadolu Agency it does not seek to remove content from its platform simply because it is unsavory or unpopular, but does its best to prevent hate speech from appearing.

One way it is working to improve on the effort is by providing users with a mechanism in autofill suggestions that would allow users to alert the company when an offensive term appears.

Amid a nationwide increase in hate crimes targeting Muslims, the effort to combat misinformation is more imperative than ever, Muslim group said.

Hate crimes against Muslims

The Council on American-Islamic Relations, the U.S.’s largest Muslim advocacy group, said it tracked a 584 percent increase in anti-Muslim hate crimes from 2014 to 2016.

The group is not the only one to find such numbers. The Southern Poverty Law Center tracks hate incidents and groups in the U.S. and said it found hate groups increasing in number for the second consecutive year in 2016, fueled largely by a near-tripling of anti-Muslim groups.

“The growth has been accompanied by a rash of crimes targeting Muslims,” the center said in its annual report.

Information people receive from a variety of sources — television, radio and the Internet — no doubt plays a role in fomenting hatred among some of those who perpetrate attacks but could also be used to stop them.

“We are seeing a rise in hate crimes towards Muslims, and there is a direct connection between this demonization of Islam and Muslims and the hate crimes that are being perpetuated against Muslims in the United States,” Suleiman said.

Still, he maintained that such voices should not be censored but “should not be featured prominently as authoritative voices.”

Suleiman added: “I don’t think Google has a responsibility to portray Muslims positively. I think Google has a responsibility to weed out fear-mongering and hate groups but I don’t want Google to silence critique of Islam, or critique of Muslims…

Donald Trump’s Afghanistan Plan: Fewer Soldiers, More Mineral Mining
Thursday, July 27, 2017 3:00 PM

President Donald Trump is reluctant to send more U.S. troops to Afghanistan to fight the war on terror — so he’s reportedly mulling with another idea: Mine the country’s resources and share in the wealth.

President Donald Trump sees validity in mining in Afghanistan, where resources are estimated to be worth trillions of dollars.

According to some estimates, Afghanistan is home to about $1 trillion worth of minerals and elements. And the Pentagon is intrigued at the idea of tapping into those resources.

Trump, meanwhile, has express skeptisicm at the notion of sending in more troops to control the spread of terrorism in Afghanistan, and to help the ailing country rebuilt.

His idea, to plow for wealth and share the booty with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani, would usher in a substantial shift in foreign policy.

Breitbart reports:

The U.S. president has discussed the prospect of extracting the material with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani who has promoted mining as an economic opportunity for his country, one of the poorest in the world, reports the New York Times (NYT), adding:

Mr. Trump, who is deeply skeptical about sending more American troops to Afghanistan, has suggested that this could be one justification for the United States to stay engaged in the country. To explore the possibilities, the White House is considering sending an envoy to Afghanistan to meet with mining officials.

While the United States has invested billions in nation building in Afghanistan, neighboring China has been tapping into what is believed to be one of the richest troves of minerals in the world.

President Trump is trying to change that equation and ensure the United States benefits from its multi-year investment.

“Officials said Mr. Trump was determined not to spend American lives and treasure in Afghanistan only to watch China lock up its rare-earth deposits, which are used to make products from wind turbines to computer chips,” points out the Times.

Members of the Trump administration reportedly met with chemical executive Michael N. Silver last week to discuss the potential of mining the minerals.

American Elements, Silver’s company, specializes in the minerals found in Afghanistan, which are used in a range of high-tech products, notes the Times:

Stephen A. Feinberg, a billionaire financier who is informally advising Mr. Trump on Afghanistan, is also looking into ways to exploit the country’s minerals, according to a person who has briefed him. Mr. Feinberg owns a large military contracting firm, DynCorp International, which could play a role in guarding mines — a major concern, given that some of Afghanistan’s richest deposits are in areas controlled by the Taliban.

Through aerial surveys conducted in 2006, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has determined that Afghanistan may hold millions of tons of useful minerals that the U.S. Department of Defense’s Task Force for Business and Stability Operations estimated in 2010 to be worth $908 billion.

Afghan’s government estimates the country’s mineral resources to be worth $3 trillion, though.

Again, from Breitbart:

Afghanistan holds at least “60 million tons of copper, 2.2 billion tons of iron ore, 1.4 million tons of rare earth elements such as lanthanum, cerium and neodymium, and lodes of aluminum, gold, silver, zinc, mercury and lithium,” reported NBC News, citing the USGS.

A state-owned Chinese mining company has already reached a 30-year, $3 billion contract with the Afghan government to exploit the country’s copper deposit.

The Taliban has reportedly reached an agreement with China that allows Beijing to mine Afghanistan without worrying about the safety of its workers.

Most of the mineral deposits are believed to be in Taliban-stronghold Helmand province, located along the Pakistan border.

“There are undoubtedly minerals to be exploited in Afghanistan, which could help provide economic stability to the country in the future,” Daniel Feldman, a former special representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan told NYT. “But given all the obstacles, it could be many years before mining yields dividends for the Afghan people.”

Eastern Europe Leaders Buck EU Migrant Quotas: ‘We Will Never Accept’ Demands
Thursday, July 27, 2017 2:30 PM

Eastern European leaders have come out swinging against a mandate from the European Union to take in a certain number of migrants, saying they’ll never accept the quota system.

Refugees pour out of a train station in Hungary.

The backlash comes as Europe has been suffering under the hefty demands of mostly Muslim migrants and refugees who’ve flooded the borders — at the bequest and open-door welcome of liberal politicians.

Apparently, some in more conservative political circles — like Hungary and Slovakia — say they’ve reached the tipping point. And they’re telling EU leaders: No more migrants.

From the Express:

EASTERN European countries today launched a furious fightback against EU judges insisting they will “never” accept any ruling forcing them to accept migrant quotas.

In a sign of the growing schism between the region and Brussels Hungary and Slovakia launched scathing attacks on the European Court of Justice (ECJ) accusing it of political activism.

Yesterday the court’s advocate general, Yves Bot, issued an opinion urging judges to reject the two countries’ application to strike out the EU’s migrant resettlement programme.

Eurocrats want member states to resettle 160,000 refugees from Greece and Italy under a forced allocation system, which was voted through in 2015 despite opposition from Eastern countries.

Hungary and Slovakia, supported by Poland, refused to take in their share and instead launched a legal battle to try and prove that the system is a breach of their sovereignty.

But yesterday French official Mr Bot dealt that effort a serious blow with the publication of his recommendation, which raised eyebrows due to its highly political nature.

The advocate general accused the two countries of failing to show “solidarity” with other member states and said they were politically duty bound to a “fair sharing of burdens”.

But his opinion drew a furious response from Budapest and Bratislava, who vowed to carry on fighting the quota scheme and launched stinging attacks on the Luxembourg court.

A spokesman for Slovakian prime minister Robert Fico was unrepentant, fierily stating that the premier “reiterates that he will never accept any mandatory quotas”.

And Hungarian justice minister Pal Volner went on the attack against activist European judges, saying it would be “very sorry if the court decides to become part of the political process”.

He accused the EU of a deliberate attempt to “upset and jeopardise the European people’s peace and security as part of a forced process of unknown origin.”

And he raged: “The main elements of this statement are political, which are practically used to disguise the fact that there are no legal arguments in it.”

“Our legal position is unchanged. If the court bases its decision on the law then we will welcome it positively and we will be very sorry if the court decides to become part of the political process.”

In his opinion published yesterday, French official Mr Bot unequivocally stated that judges at the ECJ “should dismiss the actions brought by Slovakia and Hungary” when they come before them later this year.

He rejected claims by Hungary and Slovakia that the quota scheme should have been put to national parliaments, and not just decided by EU leaders, and that MEPs should have been handed a greater role in shaping it.

And the magistrate said the fact that the fact the decision was not adopted unanimously did not invalidate it, because the Commission did not object to amendments leaders had made to the initial proposal.

California: “Naive” Oakland Muslim Indicted For Aiding ISIS
Thursday, July 27, 2017 1:52 PM

His attorney said: “Amer is not anti-American and does not support ISIS or any other terrorist organization. He is completely nonviolent, and he took no actions to harm anyone.”

“He said Alhaggagi was ‘naïve’ and not aware of who the individuals were that he was communicating with in chat rooms.”

Who is he trying to kid? If you’re talking about aiding ISIS, you’re not naive. You’re complicit. You’re a traitor. You should get full punishment under the law for that.

“Oakland Man Indicted For Allegedly Aiding ISIS,” CBS SF, July 21, 2017:

OAKLAND (CBS SF) – A 22-year-old Oakland man, who allegedly met with undercover agents to plan a potential terrorist attack, has been charged with attempting to set-up social media accounts for ISIS, federal prosecutors confirmed Friday.

A spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office said Amer Sinan Alhaggagi — who has been in federal custody since last November — was indicted on Thursday by a federal grand jury on several counts including attempting to provide social media accounts for the use and benefit of ISIS.

In a detention document filed in December, federal prosecutors told the court that Alhaggagi had spent significant time in Yemen and had allegedly met undercover agents on “numerous occasions to plan a potential terrorist attack.”

In a statement, Alhaggagi’s attorney August Gugelmann denied his client knowingly was involved in terrorism.

“Amer is not anti-American and does not support ISIS or any other terrorist organization,” the statement read. “He is completely nonviolent, and he took no actions to harm anyone.”

He said Alhaggagi was “naïve” and not aware of who the individuals were that he was communicating with in chat rooms.

“The evidence we have suggests these charges are based on internet chat conversations that he had with a number of unknown people,” the statement read. “Amer is a very young and naïve man, and it appears he allowed himself to be drawn into conversations that he should have been far more suspicious of.”

It appears in some of those chatrooms were either undercover government agents or cooperating sources, according to a protective order sealing evidence in the case that was filed in December.

The order read in part that the sealed evidence included “materials describing communications that occurred between the defendant on the one hand and undercover agents and cooperating sources on the other, whose identities remain confidential and non-public.”

In the detention order for Alhaggagi filed on Dec. 20, federal prosecutors told the court that the Oakland man was “both a serious flight risk and a danger to the community.”…

Muslim who plotted to murder Pamela Geller threatens confidential informant in the case
Thursday, July 27, 2017 1:00 PM

“Prosecutors seek to keep witness’s identity secret in ISIS case,” by Maria Cramer, Boston Globe, July 26, 2017:

Prosecutors on Wednesday asked a federal judge to shield the identity of a confidential informant in the case of an Everett man accused of plotting to support the Islamic State terrorist group.

“There have been threats made against this confidential informant by this defendant,” Assistant US Attorney B. Stephanie Siegmann told US District Judge William G. Young during a pretrial conference.

The defendant, David Wright, 27, is accused of plotting to kill people in the United States on behalf of the Islamic State. Wright was charged after his uncle, Usaamah Abdullah Rahim, was shot in a Roslindale parking lot by an FBI agent in June 2015. Authorities said the shooting occurred after Rahim, 26, attacked police with a military knife.

Law enforcement officials had confronted Rahim to question him about an alleged plot to kill police, according to authorities. Wright and Nicholas Alexander Rovinski, 26, of Warwick, R.I., had allegedly discussed that plot with Rahim, as well as a plan to behead anti-Islam activist Pamela Geller….

“Man tied to planned Islamic State-inspired attack due in Boston court,” Reuters, July 26, 2017:

BOSTON (Reuters) – A Massachusetts man charged with conspiring in an Islamic State-inspired plot to behead a woman who had organized a 2015 competition featuring cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed is due in court on Wednesday.

David Daoud Wright has pleaded not guilty to charges including planning the attack on the organizers of the Garland, Texas, “Draw Mohammed” contest with his uncle, Usamaah Abdullah Rahim.

Their plot went off the rails when Rahim told Wright and a third man that he could no longer wait and that “I’m just going to, ah, go after them, those boys in blue.” That conversation was picked up by law enforcement, who had the group under 24-hour surveillance, and when officers tried to question Rahim in a Boston supermarket parking lot, he pulled a large knife and was shot dead by police.

The third member of the alleged plot, Nicholas Rovinski of Rhode Island, last year pleaded guilty to conspiracy.

Wright, who lived just outside Boston in Everett, is due to appear later on Wednesday for a status conference in Boston federal court ahead of his September trial.

The organizer of the “Draw Mohammed” contest and the group’s alleged target, Pamela Geller, said the event was intended to highlight free-speech rights, which are protected by the U.S. Constitution. Opponents described it as intentionally provocative, as many Muslims consider depictions of the Prophet Mohammed blasphemous….

Migrants Overwhelm German Courts With Asylum Lawsuits, as Critics Warn: System Will ‘Collapse’
Thursday, July 27, 2017 11:30 AM

Germany’s judicial system is being flooded with requests from migrants who want asylum — so much so that legal watchers are warning: the system is about to collapse under the weight of all the petitions.

Blame Angela Merkel. She’s the one who’s let in so many migrants and refugees, despite concerns of citizens who say the country can’t handle all the demands.

Angela Merkel’s open-door policy to migrants and refugees has tasked the judicial system.

The chicken’s coming home to roost. Not only is Germany’s culture faced a dramatic shift from the mostly Muslim migrants. But now courts are suffering.

A new report reveals that lawsuits have completely overwhelmed the judicial system.

From TruthRevolt.org:

The legal suits are filed after migrants are granted “subsidiary protection” (a temporary status) by German legal authorities. Their protected status gives them a platform from which to sue and file appeals on their immigration status.

Many of these migrants are seeking what’s known as “subsidiary protection,” meaning they can stay for three years but then have to petition for longer stays.

And the fact they’re returning to court is just adding to the work load.

The Washington Free Beacon has the story:

Those with subsidiary protection status can stay in Germany for up to three years, but do not have the right to reunify with family.

Two-thirds of cases in Berlin’s administrative court are from asylum seekers, as 250,000 appeals are pending across the country Germany.

“This will paralyze us for years,” a judge told Berlin newspaper Der Tagesspiegel concerning the build up of lawsuits.

In 2015, German Chancellor Angela Merkel took an especially liberal line in welcoming refugees. But when the country was shaken by terror attacks, including one on a Christmas market by a Tunisian asylum-seeker, concerns about the German open-door policy led to tighter regulations.

German courts, however, have disagreed with German immigration officials’ judgements the vast majority of the time, finding in favor of 90 percent of Syrians who sue for asylum. Some hail this proportion as a human rights victory.

“The courts are cleaning up the mess,” University of Hamburg law professor Nora Markard said. “The success rate tells us how important judicial review is — and how important it is for people to have legal representation.”

Geneva Convention guidelines define a refugee as someone with “a well-founded fear of being persecuted for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group or political opinion.” When Germany’s migration office puts people in subsidiary protection rather than refugee status, it does so based on the belief that they are not facing political oppression in their home country.

The strain on German courts is likely to continue giving the country problems. Robert Seegmüller, chair of the Association of German Administrative Law Judges, said that the volume of asylum cases is bringing the system toward a crisis.

“The situation is dramatic for administrative courts,” Seegmüller told publishing group Redaktionsnetzwerk Deutschland. “We are now completely stretched to our limits.”

He said that having 250,000 cases pending is unsustainable.

“The administrative court system cannot endure such a figure in the long run,” Seegmüller said. “At some point, everything will collapse.”

More Facebook sharia compliance: Stop Islamisation of Denmark page banned
Thursday, July 27, 2017 10:55 AM

My colleague Anders Gravers has given me the news of more sharia-compliant censorship at Facebook:

Facebook has closed our site Partiet Stop Islamiseringen af Danmark with more than 11.000 likes and 10.000 followers without any real reason. They just call it a site who spread hate speech. That is of course a lie. It is the site for the political party SIAD and we don’t allow any hate speech or stupid remarks there.

We think it is a revenge from the leftist who supported the Mayor in Roskilde because she was crying in her office about she felt that we were after her :-) But we are not finished with them yet. We have a very funny action against the Bishop (who also supported the mosque building) in 3 weeks time.

Here are a couple of files with screenshots of our FB site with the suspension note in the top. The second shows the appeal time – 10 days ago and still no feedback from FB.

U.K. McDonald’s Under Fire After Muslim Bites into Wrap With Bacon
Thursday, July 27, 2017 10:30 AM

A Muslim man in East Oxford in the United Kingdom has registered a complaint against McDonald’s fast food restaurant after he says he bit into a wrap sandwich and found bacon.

Amir Ali said he was shocked to discover bacon in his McDonald’s wrap, and filed a complaint with the fast-food restaurant.

Amir Ali, 37, said he was horrified to find he had bitten bacon and that his religion beliefs were violated.

From ThisIsOxfordShire.com (h/t The Religion of Peace):

A FATHER from East Oxford forbidden to touch pork products due to his strict Muslim faith has raised a formal complaint with McDonald’s.

Amir Ali, 37, of Shelley Road, bought a sweet chilli chicken wrap at the fast food branch in Headington.

It was only after biting into the hot snack that he made a jarring discovery: a store worker had mistakenly added bacon.

He said: “In our religion we can’t eat bacon at all. We can’t even touch it, so I spent £3.69 just to get the other wrap.

“But I took a bite and something else was in my mouth. I thought it was lettuce because I’ve never tasted bacon. I took it out and thought ‘God, that’s bacon.”

Since the incident earlier in July Mr Ali, a waiter at an Indian restaurant, has spoken to staff at the Headington branch.

He said: “Everyone makes mistakes but something like this is very serious. I’m worried about my children going now.

“If anybody has this, check inside the wrap. If it can happen to me, it can happen to anyone.”

McDonald’s, for its part, penned a quick apology.

“At McDonald’s,” restaurant staff wrote, “we want all our customers to enjoy their restaurant experience every time they visit. We’re disappointed that we didn’t get it right on this occasion.”

San Diego ‘Refugee’ Arrivals Lowest in 10 Years Due to Trump’s Terrorist Travel Ban
Thursday, July 27, 2017 9:30 AM

President Donald Trump’s travel ban is having quite an effect. In San Diego County, for instance, a jurisdiction that traditionally welcomed migrants with open arms, only 12 refugees arrived there in June — the lowest number in more than a decade.

San Diego County has a reputation for taking in the most number of refugees of any other county in California. Since 2009, the area’s been a virtual hub for new arrivals from Iraq.

But that trend, due to Trump’s travel ban, appears to be reversing.

San Diego County’s seen a massive drop in the number of refugees since President Donald Trump’s travel ban took effect.

Even the left-leaning San Diego Union-Tribune reports as much:

The June arrivals are from Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq and Kenya.

The county’s arrivals have dropped significantly since President Donald Trump first signed an executive order in January that paused the U.S. resettlement program and reduced the number of refugees that the U.S. would accept per year by more than half, to 50,000 from 110,000.

As refugee advocates and the federal government fought in court over the legality of the order, which was rescinded and replaced in March, refugee arrivals stopped and sputtered, with increasingly small numbers getting flights to their intended new homes in the U.S.

That’s the opposite of the trend for previous years when summer months saw surges in refugee arrivals in the county, sometimes more than 700 in one month.

San Diego County was fifth in the state for arrivals in June, taking in fewer refugees than Los Angeles and three other counties.

Imperial Beach resident Ernie Griffes opposed his city’s designation as a welcoming city because he was concerned more refugees might settle there, and he supported Trump in part for his immigration platform.

Griffes worried that a large refugee family might move in on his street and he wouldn’t know who they were or whether they’d been vetted sufficiently. He called it “a big problem for quiet, little communities.”

Griffes said he’s glad that arrivals have slowed, as Trump promised they would.

“This is what is intended as the nation tries to digest culturally and financially the strains on neighborhoods and resources of non-citizens demanding services and support of all kinds that even citizens cannot get,” Griffes said via email. “This is a part of what the president was elected to do, and we’re pleased to see it happening.”

Robert Moser, Catholic Charities executive director, said the court battle over Trump’s order has created a constant uncertainty for refugees and resettlement agencies.

“You don’t know today what’s going to happen tomorrow because yesterday what you expected to happen didn’t,” Moser said over the phone. “It’s really, really hard to explain or convey what the impact is or will be other than the fact that the numbers have practically just stopped.”

Muslim migrant in Austria convicted of plotting murder of Jews
Thursday, July 27, 2017 5:21 AM

Islamic Jew-hatred – it’s in the Quran.

Muslim plotting to kill Jews in Hitler’s birthplace, Austria. Perf.

Palestinian in Austria convicted of plotting murder of Jews

The 27-year-old from the Gaza Strip was found guilty on Monday of belonging to the terrorist group Hamas and plotting a terror attack on Jews. He reportedly was sentenced to life in prison.

The man, who entered Austria as an asylum seeker, was arrested at a refugee center in Austria last July, the French news agency AFP reported.

He was accused of contacting two men in the West Bank and ordering them to kill Jews in Jerusalem by throwing hand grenades. The two men were arrested in Israel in June 2016, which led to the arrest of the Palestinian man in Austria, who has not been named in the media due to the country’s privacy laws.

He served nine years in an Israeli prison after being arrested in Gaza at 14 for attacking soldiers, according to AFP.

Rep Steve King: Democrat Muslim IT spy ring is “an enormous act of treason, a lot of people complicit” had access to “all the communication of the Foreign Affairs Committee”
Thursday, July 27, 2017 1:16 AM

There is a reason the fake newsmedia is filling the airwaves with Trump/Russia bunk. It’s the old sleight of hand. Don’t look there, look here?

Where’s Jeff Sessions? Where the hell is everyone?

The scandal goes all the way to the top – Clinton and Pelosi. The list of those reportedly employing the Awans and their associates includes these 23 current or former Democrats in Congress, including: Andre Carson, Luis Guiterez, Jim Himes, Terri Sewell, Jackie Speier, Mike Quigley, Eric Swalwell, Patrick Murphy, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Joaquini Castro, Lois Frankel, Ted Lieu, Robin Kelly, Tammy Duckworth, Mark Takano, John Sarbanes, Diana DeGette, Cedric Richmond, Charlie Crist, Jacky Rosen, Sandy Levin, Karen Bass and Marcia Fudge.

Rep. Steve King: Imran Awan Had Access to ‘All the Communication of the Foreign Affairs Committee’

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) talked about the ever-worsening scandal surrounding Imran Awan and his ex-employer Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz on Breitbart New’s Whatever it Takes with Curt Schilling Wednesday.

The Pakistan-born longtime congressional Democratic IT consultant was arrested by federal authorities as he tried to flee the country Tuesday, sending hundreds of thousands of dollars ahead of himself to Pakistan.

Rep. King, a staunch conservative and ally of populist nationalism, stressed that the facts are anything but clear at this stage. The surface narrative itself was suspisious enough for King even beforegetting into the extensive criminal allegations against Awan and his brothers. The trio is reported to have been paid over $4 million over the last last eight years for providing IT services for Wasserman Schultz and up to 24 other Democratic congressman. Imran Awan himself was reportedly kept on as a “part-time” employee at a $165,000 salary.

“If the reports are right, if these three individuals…drew down, over this period of time, $4 million and Debbie Wasserman Schultz had a part-time employee who’s making $165,000 that she just fired – what – yesterday afternoon?” King mused with Schilling.

Talk, however, quickly turned to the terrible implications of the evidence so far. Reports of smashed computer hard-drives, desperate attempts to recover seized computer equipment and years of access to the computer systems of the House Democratic caucus naturally raise alarms when considered with Awan’s ties to Pakistan. King said:

They had access to the information on the multiple clients that they had, and that number is nearly a score, as I recall, they would have had access to all the information that came through all those computers in all those offices and access to…all the communications of the foreign affairs committee.

“I think this could be an enourmous act of treason with a lot of people complicit,” Schilling said in reply.

Democrat Muslim IT Spy Scandal Spreads to Pelosi and Clinton

To understand how corrupt and compromised the enemedia is, this story is getting no ink. This hack is real Three Muslim members of the intelligence panel and five members of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs were among the dozens of members who employed the suspects on a shared basis. They were illegally accessing info from House Intel, Foreign Affairs servers.

The two committees deal with many of the nation’s most sensitive issues and documents, including those related to the war on terrorism.

“I’m surprised that the media hasn’t made a bigger deal about this,” Labrador said. “This is pretty outrageous. These are people who had direct connections and access to the House, to intelligence information, and the media has said very little about it. “
Village council orders ‘revenge rape’ of girl in Pakistan

Pakistan village council orders ‘revenge rape’ of girl

BBC, July 26, 2017:

Aome 20 people from Multan, Pakistan, have been arrested for ordering the rape of a teenage girl, in revenge for a rape her brother allegedly committed.

Police said the families of the two girls are related.

Members of both had joined forces to decide what should be done.

“A jirga [village council] had ordered the rape of a 16-year-old girl as punishment, as her brother had raped a 12-year-old,” police official Allah Baksh told AFP.

He said the village council was approached earlier this month by a man who said his 12-year-old sister had been raped by their cousin.

The council then ordered the complainant to rape the sister of the accused in return – which police say he did.

Pakistan’s Dawn newspaper reported that the girl was forced to appear before the group and raped in front of them and her parents.

The mothers of the two girls later filed complaints at the local police station.

Medical examinations have confirmed rape in both cases.

Another officer, Ahsan Younas, told BBC Urdu that the first girl to be raped was aged between 12 and 14. The victim of the revenge rape is said to be 16 or 17.

He said police had registered a complaint against 25 people, and that the suspect accused of raping the 12-year-old was still at large.

While some reports say the group that ordered the rape was a jirga – or village council – BBC sources said it was actually formed by members of the two families.

Jirgas, a kind of council formed of local elders, often settle disputes in rural Pakistan. However, they are illegal and have been condemned for a series of controversial rulings – including ordering so-called “honour killings” and past incidents of “revenge rape”.

In 2002, a jirga ordered the gang rape of 28-year-old Mukhtar Mai, whose 12-year-old brother was accused of an affair with an older woman.

Ms Mai took her rapists to court – an act of extraordinary courage in Pakistan, where sexual assault victims still face considerable stigma.

When their convictions were overturned by Pakistan’s Supreme Court, she was offered many ways out of the country. However, she chose to stay in her village and start a girls’ school and a women’s refuge yards away from where she was raped.

Profile: Who is Mukhtar Mai?

Ms Mai is now a prominent women’s rights activist, and her story inspired an opera, “Thumbprint”, which opened in New York in 2014.

Tillerson ‘taking a little time off’ amid exit rumors

This is good news. Better news would be if he would just take off. Here’s to hoping Ambassador John Bolton is in talks. That would be the  game-changer the State Department is desperately in need of.

State Dept. Blames Israel for Terrorism: Tillerson has got to go, it’s time for John Bolton

  • Tillerson ‘taking a little time off’ amid exit rumors

    By Chris Perez, The NY Post, July 25, 2017 |

    Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is “taking a little time off” amid reports that he’s sick of being in Washington, a spokesperson says.

 

Rumors have been swirling about the former Exxon-Mobil CEO’s frustration with the Trump administration and its involvement in foreign policy decisions after two sources told CNN they wouldn’t be surprised if there was a “Rexit” on the horizon.

State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert on Tuesday refused to say whether Tillerson was happy in his position, but she did reveal that he had been on vacation this week — despite there being numerous foreign policy issues to deal with.

“Just taking a little time off,” Nauert said. “He’s got a lot of work, he just came back from that mega trip overseas as you all well know, many of you were over there with the G20. So he’s entitled to take a few days himself.”

Nahal Toosi, a foreign affairs correspondent at Politico, tweeted that Tillerson had “Gone to Texas” — but was still working remotely.

“He’s fine,” Toosi said. “He’s working 20 hour days, but just not in D.C.”

Nauert insisted Tuesday that Tillerson was perfectly fine with being secretary of state and wasn’t going anywhere, despite the reports.

“The secretary has been very clear he intends to stay here at the State Department,” she said. “We have a lot of work that is left to be done ahead of us. He recognizes that. He’s deeply engaged in that work.”

Nauert added that Tillerson “does, however, serve at the pleasure of the president, just as any cabinet official would.”

She claimed he had been planning the vacation for quite some time — and that it was in no way related to the reports of his displeasure with the White House.

“The secretary, as do all other cabinet officials, meets with the president and the president’s national security advisers and cabinet members,” Nauert said. “That is something that’s normal, that’s customary. They sit down, they have a healthy dialogue and conversations about the heaviest and the weightiest foreign policy issues.”
