Senate Report: Biden Family Bought $100K of ‘Extravagant Items’ with China-Linked Credit Cards

September 23, 2020

Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden’s family members bought more than $100,000 worth of “extravagant items” in 2017 using a line of credit linked to associates of the Chinese communist government.

A bombshell report by the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee and Senate Finance Committee details numerous cases in which Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, and family members have deep ties to the Chinese communist government, Russia, Ukraine, and Kazakhstan.

In one instance, the Senate report states that on September 8, 2017, Hunter Biden and Chinese national Gongwen Dong — with ties to the Chinese communist government — opened a bank account to fund a more than $100,000 “global spending spree” for members of the Biden family.

“Hunter Biden and Gongwen Dong, a Chinese national who has reportedly executed transactions for limited liability companies controlled by Ye Jianming, applied to a bank and opened a line of credit under the business name Hudson West III LLC (Hudson West III),” the Senate report states. The report continues:

Hunter Biden, James Biden, and James Biden’s wife, Sara Biden, were all authorized users of credit cards associated with the account. The Bidens subsequently used the credit cards they opened to purchase $101,291.46 worth of extravagant items, including airline tickets and multiple items at Apple Inc. stores, pharmacies, hotels, and restaurants. The cards were collateralized by transferring $99,000 from a Hudson West III account to a separate account, where the funds were held until the cards were closed. The transaction was identified for potential financial criminal activity. [Emphasis added]

According to the Senate report, Hunter Biden held one of the credit cards while James Biden and Sara Biden, Biden’s brother and sister-in-law, held three cards.

(Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee and Senate Finance Committee)

The Senate report states that Hudson West III LLC was first incorporated on April 19, 2016, more than a year before the China-linked line of credit was opened to fund purchases made by Hunter Biden, James Biden, and Sara Biden.

Hudson West III LLC had a number of business dealings with companies and Chinese nationals linked to the Chinese communist government, the Senate report states:

On Aug. 8, 2017, CEFC Infrastructure Investment wired $5 million to the bank account for Hudson West III. These funds may have originated from a loan issued from the account of a company called Northern International Capital Holdings, a Hong Kong-based investment company identified at one time as a “substantial shareholder” in CEFC International Limited along with Ye. It is unclear whether Hunter Biden was half-owner of Hudson West III at that time. However, starting on Aug. 8, the same day the $5 million was received, and continuing through Sept. 25, 2018, Hudson West III sent frequent payments to Owasco, Hunter Biden’s firm. These payments, which were described as consulting fees, reached $4,790,375.25 in just over a year. [Emphasis added]

The Senate report also accuses Hunter Biden of paying Russian and Eastern European women who are linked to prostitution or a human trafficking ring. Another detail reveals that one of Russia’s most powerful oligarchs paid Hunter Biden’s private equity firm $3.5 million in 2014.

 

Senate Committee: Hunter Biden Paid Women Linked to ‘Prostitution or Human Trafficking’

A new Senate Committee report alleges that Hunter Biden paid women linked to “Eastern European prostitution or [a] human trafficking ring.”

The report, released Wednesday by the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs and the Senate Committee on Finance, alleges that Biden made a series of questionable financial transactions, opening him and his family to extortion and counterintelligence concerns.

The committees’ report confirms in a footnote that Biden “sent thousands of dollars” to individuals involved with “possible human trafficking,” associated with the adult entertainment industry, or associated with prostitution.

From the report:

The records note that it is a documented fact that Hunter Biden has sent funds to nonresident alien women in the United States who are citizens of Russia and Ukraine and who have subsequently wired funds they have received from Hunter Biden to individuals located in Russia and Ukraine. The records also note that some of these transactions are linked to what “appears to be an Eastern European prostitution or human trafficking ring.”

The report notes existing extensive public reporting concerning Biden’s alleged involvement with prostitution services, which it does not confirm or refute.

While the committees raise concerns about Biden’s payments, they do not specifically detail the individuals involved with former Vice President Joe Biden’s son.

“The Committees will continue to analyze the records in their possession,” the report notes.

 

 

Trump Will Not Denounce Armed Americans Acting If Police Stand Down

September 1, 2020

David Marcus

When rioters in Kenosha, Wisconsin last week burned down and looted businesses, the police did not stop them. We have seen this in cities across the country. No storeowner in Democratic-run areas that are subject to a leftist protest, which can “intensify” into riots, can have the slightest hope that the police will keep it from happening.

That being the case, they really have no choice but to defend their property themselves or let it go up in flames. President Trump will not denounce the constitutional right for them to do so, nor should he.

Trump could not have been more clear in his press conference on Monday that he wants police to handle all of law enforcement. Every sane person does. But it is just as clear that many Democratic mayors and governors are refusing to allow police to do so.

In some cases, this is because local law enforcement is overwhelmed, but in too many such cases Democratic mayors playing politics refuse the help of federal law enforcement. Thankfully, in Kenosha, the National Guard went in and quelled the violence, but in Portland help has not only been rejected, but derided, and the violence persists.

Demands for Trump to condemn such actions follow the alleged killing of two protesters by a 17-year-old in Kenosha last week. He had traveled from a nearby town to assist other armed men in defending local businesses.

Now let’s be clear: that teenager should not have been there. He should have been at a movie with his friends, not “playing cop” in a violent riot zone. But that doesn’t change the basic fact that Americans have the right to use guns to protect their property and property in their communities, especially if the police are not allowed or otherwise unable to do so.

This is a tale as old as America, whether it was homesteaders in the old West, or Korean storeowners during the Los Angeles riots. Americans are not going to see their life’s work destroyed because feckless Democratic mayors refuse to enforce the law. Pretending that armed citizens reacting to widespread destruction by trying to stop felonious behavior and riots are responsible for the riots is as absurd as blaming Trump for them. They are the fault of the leftist rioters themselves, and nobody else.

The corporate media think they have Trump in some kind of trap — as if he has to denounce this or else his criticisms of Biden staffers and Kamala Harris helping bail out rioters are hypocritical. But they aren’t. Telling Americans they have the right to defend their property is still a popular message — maybe not in the Hamptons or among celebrities and Democratic politicians with private security, but it sure is with many, many Americans.

Trump is absolutely correct that defending citizens’ property is a job best done by well-trained professional police. In fact, it is one of the central reasons police, and the government itself, exist at all: to protect private property.

This is why communists who don’t believe in private property want to defund or abolish the police. This is what happens when you defund or abolish the police. People who don’t want to be communists, who want to earn a wage and own property they can call their own, fight for it. That isn’t going to change.

People need to understand that if they try to burn or loot other people’s property, they are in danger of those people using violence to stop them. No matter how many glowing interviews NPR does with authors who find absurd justifications for stealing, people have a right to defend themselves, and they are going to do so.

President Trump is not going to tell them not to. Democrats might. They might say, “Just give the criminals what they want” — in fact, Democrats in Minneapolis literally did that — but no sensible people would even suggest it.

Trump knows he has a winning issue in law and order. It’s been a winning issue longer than the TV show named after it ran, which is a long time. Joe Biden knows it too. It’s why every day he has inched closer to condemning the actions of Black Lives Matter and Antifa without actually doing it.

Something has changed in this election. The media wants to stop that change by making Trump say people aren’t allowed to defend themselves. It’s an absurd notion on its face and shows just how desperate the president’s detractors are becoming.

 

‘Put a bullet in Donald Trump’: Watch 2 minutes of Dem threats of violence against president

A video circulating on social media presents a montage of threats against the United States and President Trump by Democrats and media figures.

“They’re still going to have to go out and put a bullet in Donald Trump,” says one.

The video was posted on Twitter by Blaze TV reporter Elijah Schaffer.

“I will go and take Trump out tonight,” said Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said: “I don’t know why there aren’t uprisings all over the country. Maybe there will be.”

New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo said, “Show me where it says protesters are supposed to be polite and peaceful.”

Former Attorney General Eric Holder said, “When they go low, we kick.”

An MSNBC personality said of Trump, “I’d like to punch him in the face.”

Joe Biden once said that if he and President Trump were in high school together, he’d “take him behind the gym and beat the hell out of him.”

Actor Johnny Depp asked, “When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?”

A commentator on MSNBC said, “They’re still going to have to go out and put a bullet in Donald Trump.”

And there was, “Where is John Wilkes Boothe when you need him?”

There were two other entertainers, one who held up a faked bloody head of a decapitated Donald Trump and another who said, “I have thought at awful lot about blowing up the White House.”

The Twitter news aggregating site Twitchy called it the most important video of 2020.

“Imagine if any Republican encouraged people to go punch Biden in the face? Or strangle his family members? Or blow up his home? It would be front-page news 24/7. But since it’s Trump? Eh.”

 

Cancel Culture Alert: Target These Racist Organizations

July 23, 2020

Amid all the woke “cancel culture” desecration and destruction of our nation’s history, it’s apparent that our “higher educational institutions” have succeeded in dumbing down most of the Millennial generation of privileged white leftists. The latest targets of these oh-so-woke BLM “Burn, Loot, Murder” cadres of black supremacists and their white frontline agitators are organizations with any remote connection to long-past racist or racial insensitivity.

Demonstrating their monumental ignorance, they’ve gone after iconic brands like the NFL’s Redskins, the Broadway hit “Hamilton,” those universities founded by racists, and so much more. Dennis Prager adds: “Uncle Ben, Aunt Jemima, Ulysses Grant, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, ‘whitening’ agents, meritocracy, Western culture and Christianity.”

In order to avoid resistance to their agenda, these fascist leftists would especially like to cancel cops.

But in their effort to cancel America, they’ve missed some prime targets. In Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, he declared, “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.”

In that spirit, here are a few additional organizations that require immediate cancellation — but won’t receive it. As it turns out, leftist “cancel culture” is very selective, and when it comes to their political advocates and Leftmedia propagandists, they get a pass.

For example, it’s time to cancel The New York Times.

The Times is the epicenter of Leftmedia print propagandists, the true “enemy of the people.” So corrupt has the Gray Lady become that, last week, a highly regarded contributing editor and writer, Bari Weiss, resigned in protest. Apparently, she’d finally had enough of being called a Nazi, a racist, and a bigot by her own colleagues.

In other words, the cancel-culture crowd loves the Times. And what’s not to love? Having received a Pulitzer puff trophy for staff racist Nikole Hannah-Jones’s shoddy 1619 pseudo-history, this week the editors announced they would further appease the “anti-racist” racists by capitalizing the “B” in black whenever making the racial distinction.

Now that’s white privilege!

It’s interesting that this decision came in the same week that New York Post columnist Michael Goodwin published this inconvenient truth: “The family that owns the New York Times were slaveholders.”

Oops. Turns out that Bertha Levy Ochs, mother of Times founder Adolph Ochs, was an advocate for slavery and her family owned slaves. Ochs, who started the Chattanooga Times before he bought the failing New York Times, wrote in 1900 that the racist Democratic Party “may justly insist that the evils of negro suffrage were wantonly inflicted on them.” He funded Confederate monuments, including the Stone Mountain Memorial to Jefferson Davis, Stonewall Jackson, and Robert E. Lee. Regarding his mother’s affinity for the latter, he wrote, “Robert E. Lee was her idol.”

Cancel ‘em, or at least distribute the company stock to their former slaves’ descendants. After all, the Times’s 1619 Project asserts that the nation was founded on the backs of slaves.

And how about that other paragon of journalistic objectivity, The Washington Post?

I was amused to see that the WaPo ran a column on Washington and Lee University last week, asserting, “Both namesakes of Washington and Lee University perpetrated racial terror. The school should be renamed.” That would be George Washington and Robert E. Lee. So I guess if one’s organization includes just one name of a person who “perpetrated racial terror” — like, say, the WASHINGTON Post — then it’s OK to keep the name?

WaPo is owned by one of our nation’s four Archenemies of Liberty, billionaire leftist Jeff Bezos, who also owns Amazon. When the cancel crowd is done with WaPo, they can start with Amazon!

On to bigger racist targets — the cancel-culture mob should go after Planned Parenthood, which has, for almost a century, targeted millions of preborn black babies “to create a race of thoroughbreds” and keep America white!

As you might recall, the atheist social activist and leftist icon Margaret Sanger, who founded the American Birth Control League in 1921, which changed its name to Planned Parenthood in 1942, was an abject racist. Sanger blamed ministry to the poor, a fundamental tenet of Christianity, for excessive numbers of “unwanted” ethnic breeds.

According to Sanger: “Those vast, complex, interrelated organizations aiming to control and to diminish the spread of misery and destitution and all the menacing evils that spring out of this sinisterly fertile soil, are the surest sign that our civilization has bred, is breeding, and is perpetuating constantly increasing numbers of defectives, delinquents, and dependents. My criticism, therefore, is not directed at the failure of philanthropy, but rather at its success. These dangers are inherent in the very idea of humanitarianism and altruism, dangers which have today produced their full harvest of human waste.”

Ah, yes, “human waste.” She advocated policies that ensured “more children from the fit, less from the unfit” in order to “to create a race of thoroughbreds.” Of black people, Sanger wrote, “We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”

That explains why the PP abortion mills end the lives of a grossly disproportionate number of black babies. In fact, more than 20 million black children have been aborted, which is more than the entire black population in America during the 1960s Civil Rights movement. But don’t let “any of their more rebellious members” know about it.

No small irony that its most vociferous defender, The New York Times, announced Tuesday that [Planned Parenthood is officially trying to distance itself from its racist history. That only took 99 years!

Too late. Cancel ‘em!

And what about the right of women to vote? What, you say?

After the War Between the States, the Suffragettes turned on Frederick Douglass for daring to suggest they should support the 15th Amendment, which gave black men full citizenship and equal rights under the law, including the right to vote.

In 1869, Susan B. Anthony let her racist sentiments shine, chastising Douglass: “If you will not give the whole loaf of justice to the entire people … then give it first to women, to the most intelligent and capable portion of the women.” But certainly not to black women…

In fact, Anthony and her Suffragette partner, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, also refused to support the 14th Amendment. Stanton wrote Douglass, “Think of Sambo who does not know the difference between a Monarchy and a republic, who never read the Declaration of Independence or Webster’s spelling book, making laws for educated refined women … the daughters of Adams and Jefferson.” Stanton’s position was that the black woman would be better off as an educated white man’s slave than be free with a black man.

In the 1913 Great Women’s Suffrage Parade in Washington, Alice Paul, the organizer, decreed the parade must be segregated and insisted that black women in attendance march at the rear. Declared Paul, “I believe a large part if not the majority of our marchers will refuse to participate if negroes in any number form part of the parade.”

Time to cancel women’s right to vote!

Finally, no cancel-fest would be complete without noting the granddaddy of all racist organizations — the Democrat Party itself!

Recently, Demo candidate Joe Biden came up out of his basement and declared: “White supremacy should be rooted out and relegated to the pages of history — not promoted by the President of the United States.”

Given the violent racist history of the Democrat Party, shouldn’t any and all references to it be “canceled” and stricken from history — and anyone associated with this racist party tarred and feathered?

Democrats were, are, and will continue to be the party of black oppression.

Republicans emancipated black people in the 19th century. After the War Between the States, Democrats became the party of racist oppression for the next century. And in the 55 years since the beginning of the Civil Rights movement in the 1960s, the abject policy failure of the Democrats’ so-called “Great Society” is still enslaving black people on what amount to socialist urban poverty plantations.

And, no, the old racist Democrats didn’t “switch” to the Republican Party.

The Democrat Party is still run by wealthy white leftists, and their policies still oppress black people. Arguably, the Democrat Party is now, simultaneously, the author and beneficiary of generations of “systemic racism.”

Cancel ‘em all!

Grassroots Conservatives View DACA Amnesty as End of the Road for GOP

July 15, 2020

An amnesty for nearly a million illegal aliens could spell major losses for the Republican Party in November, while driving a surge of migration to the United States, grassroots conservatives tell Breitbart News.

On Tuesday, President Trump reiterated in the Rose Garden his intention to craft some form of an amnesty for the roughly 800,000 illegal aliens enrolled in former President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

“We’re going to work on DACA because we want to make people happy,” Trump said. “And I’ll tell you, even conservative Republicans want to see something happen with DACA.”

In interviews with Breitbart News, a number of grassroots conservatives and immigration reformers took a different tone. They said Trump’s comments left them “stunned,” “appalled,” and “worried.”

William Gheen, who heads the anti-illegal immigration grassroots group Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC), said he surveyed his members on Trump’s promise for a “road to citizenship” for DACA illegal aliens.

Of the thousands of ALIPAC activists contacted, Gheen said he received thus far about 300 to 400 responses. On DACA amnesty, more than 90 percent of respondents said they opposed the plan.

More importantly, Gheen said, his survey revealed no uptick in support for Trump should he sign a DACA amnesty, while 90 percent of respondents said they would be more reluctant to vote for him again in November. Gheen said:

There is substantial, strong opposition to this that damages Trump’s credibility even further because he campaigned on ending DACA and told us they had to go home in 2016. I believe if Trump signs anything like this for Obama’s DACA illegal aliens, it will kill his campaign.

Angel Mom Mary Ann Mendoza, the director of Angel Families, lost her 32-year-old police officer son Brandon Mendoza in 2014 when he was killed by an illegal alien. Mendoza told Breitbart News she was taken aback by Trump’s comments considering the White House intends to rescind the DACA program again.

Her biggest concern is House and Senate Republicans working alongside Democrat lawmakers to pass a DACA amnesty plan, with Trump’s approval, without any consideration for or input from Angel Families.

“Angel Families know we are the true victims of illegal alien crime,” Mendoza said. “I don’t care who it is in Washington, D.C. who is talking about DACA reform — you need to talk to the people who have been directly impacted by this.”

The chain migration impact, alone, from a DACA amnesty would ensure a flow of millions to the U.S. — primarily from Central America and Mexico — who would eventually be eligible to vote, Mendoza noted.

RJ Hauman, a spokesperson for the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), said the White House’s attempts to broker a deal with Democrats on the issue have repeatedly failed, and Trump should not expect any different this time around.

“Why would that suddenly change in an election year? The only option for the Trump administration is to re-rescind the program in a manner that adheres to administrative law,” Hauman said. “The clock is ticking.”

Electorally, grassroots anti-illegal immigration activist D.A. King pointed to the 1988 presidential election of George H.W. Bush which came just two years after former President Ronald Reagan’s amnesty for at least 2.7 million illegal aliens.

“We respectfully advise the president to remember the proven results of legalization [for illegal aliens] on elections,” King told Breitbart News. “The president, and Jared Kushner, should note that after the ‘one time’ Reagan amnesty of 1986, Hispanics rewarded Republican George H.W. Bush with 30 percent of their vote.”

Bush’s 30 percent represented a drop in support for a Republican presidential candidate compared to Reagan’s 34 percent of support among Hispanics in the 1984 presidential election.

In contrast, King said, Trump won 28 percent of Hispanics — just two points less than what Bush got after Reagan’s amnesty — by campaigning on deporting illegal aliens and reducing legal immigration.

“The Dems have promised to do amnesty again on Day One. Is the President trying to out-amnesty the Dems? All my conservative Hispanic friends are already planning to vote for Trump,” King told Breitbart News.

 

Nancy Pelosi’s email to blue-state governors

Dear blue-state governors:

On last night’s call I detected some concern about the amount of federal money coming to you to fund your state budgets in exchange for exploiting the virus and racial/police riots in pursuit of our goal of getting rid of Trump.

I will address the money issue, but first let’s step back and reexamine all the good work we have done to date.

Since March, we have had nightly calls that coordinate our attacks on Trump using the virus and now the racial unrest as our primary weapons.

We have coordinated closely with our media allies, the DNC, the Squad, Antifa, BLM, SPLC, the NBA, the NFL, Women’s Soccer, Soros, FBI, CIA, NSA and other groups that hate Trump.

All this builds on the anti-Trump measures we have already coordinated to fan anti-Trump hatred: the Kavanaugh hearings, Russia, Ukraine, impeachment, Stone, Manafort and so on. Not to mention all the Green New Deal, LGBTQ and “white supremacy” curricula we have loaded into public schools!

You all have performed brilliantly in our concerted plan to use the virus to hurt Trump.

You have shut down your economies, doing great and lasting harm to Trump’s national economy.

You have closed churches and kept them closed.

We are at over 40,000,000 unemployed! Let’s keep going! 50,000,000 by July 4!

BUT, you have ensured all state and public union workers have gotten 100% of their paychecks whether they are working or not. Remember where their political donations go!

You have agreed to keep your economies closed far longer than medically needed.

You have put sick people into nursing homes so that we can rack up more casualties and scare more people into compliance.

You have avoided using Trump’s hospital ships and tents.

You have arrested those small-business owners trying to reopen.

You have agreed to coordinate our reporting of another wave of COVID in late October.

AND – this is the best yet – you have scared people enough to let us shut polling places in November, force the use of mail-in ballots and thus let us work our voting “mail-in magic”! Remember: This is all about votes!

Now with the racial situation, you have:

  • Fanned the flames of racial unrest and manufactured an outstanding level of sustained rage, just as we planned. You make Obama and Holder in Ferguson look like amateurs!
  • Followed perfectly the script we developed on “All Whites Are Racists and All Blacks are Victims.” Notice how all the CEOs are on board!
  • Marched publicly for the media to see. Social distancing … ha!
  • Let your cities be taken over.
  • Told the cops to stand down.
  • Fired police without investigations.
  • Called for Defunding the Police.
  • Let looting proceed without consequences.
  • Released the rioters and looters without prosecution.
  • Ignored black-on-bBlack crime.
  • Ignored actual crime statistics and the real story on the War on Cops. (I hate that Heather Mac Donald!)

You have done so much! Take a bow! We have really hurt Trump! He’s gonzo in November, and I will still be House speaker!

Now, some of you are concerned that you may have gone overboard, that your people are hurting and (worse) that your reelection chances might have been harmed. You say that you need more money from the feds. What about all that stimulus money I already gave you? Trillions! So how about a little gratitude! Yes, Trump blocked the latest $3.5 trillion I said I would get for you, but please, did you really think I was serious about the 3.5?!

So, yes, I’ll get you more money – the dumb Republicans like to spend, too! But please, man up for heaven’s sake. We are almost there! Don’t get weak on me now!

Looking forward to our call tonight. Same time.

With millions of Americans concerned about coronavirus, radio host Rush Limbaugh is providing some perspective on the actual number of fatalities from COVID-19 compared to those from other causes.

On his Wednesday broadcast, Limbaugh cited a list from worldometers.info that rounded up the worldwide deaths from Jan. 1 through March 25 of 2020:

  • “Coronavirus: 21,000 deaths.
  • Seasonal flu: 113,000.
  • Malaria: 228,000.
  • Suicide: 249,000.
  • Traffic fatalities, 313, almost 314,000 deaths.
  • HIV/AIDS, 391,000 deaths.
  • Alcohol related deaths, 581,000.
  • Smoking-related deaths, 1,162,000.
  • Cancer deaths, 1,909,000 deaths.
  • Deaths attributed to starvation, 2,382,000 deaths.
  • And death by abortion, 9,900,000.”

“I’m not trying to make any correlation,” Limbaugh explained.

“I’m not trying to say, ‘Hey, we’re overreacting to coronavirus death.’ I’m just giving you the stats here. You can react to these stats however you wish.”

He added: “You still have some really shocking numbers. Because we don’t talk about it. We got suicide hotlines. We try to teach people to drive safely. We do whatever we do with HIV/AIDS. We tell people to drink responsibly, tell people not to smoke, try to devise cancer treatments, we try to feed people.”

Limbaugh even mentioned efforts by his hometown of Palm Beach, Florida: “The town website where I live is chiding people for being on the beach, for standing too close together while their dogs are pooping. I mean, you wouldn’t believe it. I’ve seen it all.”

 

Iranian Militia Leader Leading Iraq U.S. Embassy Raid Listed as Obama White House Guest

December 31, 2019

Iranian militia leader Hadi al-Amiri, one of several identified as leading an attack on the U.S. embassy in Baghdad on Tuesday, reportedly visited the White House in 2011 during the presidency of Barack Obama.

On Tuesday, a mob in Baghdad attacked the U.S. embassy in retaliation against last weekend’s U.S. airstrikes against the Iran-backed Shiite militia Kataib Hezbollah (KH), responsible for killing an American civilian contractor. KH is one of a number of pro-Iran militias that make up the Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF/PMU), which legally became a wing of the Iraqi military after fighting the Sunni Islamic State terrorist group.

President Donald Trump has since accused Iran of having “orchestrated” the embassy attack and stated that the government would be “held fully responsible.”

Breitbart News reporter John Hayward described the attack on the embassy, writing:

The mob grew into thousands of people, led by openly identified KH supporters, some of them wearing uniforms and waving militia flags. The attack began after a funeral service for the 25 KH fighters killed by the U.S. airstrikes. Demonstrators marched through the streets of Baghdad carrying photos of the slain KH members and Iraq’s top Shiite cleric, Grand Ayatollah Ali Sistani, who condemned the American airstrikes.

KH vowed to seek revenge for the airstrikes on Monday. Both KH and the Iranian military unit that supports it, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), have been designated as terrorist organizations by the U.S. government. The government of Saudi Arabia also described KH as one of several “terrorist militias supported by the Iranian establishment” in remarks on Tuesday condemning the assault on the U.S. embassy.

The attackers were able to smash open a gate and push into the embassy compound, lighting fires, smashing cameras, and painting messages such as “Closed in the name of resistance” on the walls. Gunshots were reportedly heard near the embassy, while tear gas and stun grenades were deployed by its defenders.

A uniformed militia fighter on the scene in Baghdad told Kurdish news service Rudaw that attacks were also planned against the U.S. consulates in Erbil and Basra, with the goal of destroying the consulates and killing everyone inside.

The Washington Post reported Tuesday that among those agitating protesters in Baghdad on Tuesday was Hadi al-Amiri, a former transportation minister with close ties to Iran who leads the Badr Corps, another PMF militia.

In 2011, both Fox News and the Washington Times noted that then-Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki brought his transportation minister, al-Amiri, to a meeting at the White House. The Times noted that the White House did not confirm his attendance, but the official was on Iraq’s listed members of its delegation.

The al-Amiri accompanying al-Maliki, besides also being transportation minister, was identified at the time as a commander of the Badr organization, further indicating it was the same person. At the time, the outlets expressed concern that al-Amiri had ties to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), which the FBI has stated played a role in a 1996 terrorist attack that killed 19 U.S. servicemen. President Donald Trump designated the IRGC a foreign terrorist organization, the first time an official arm of a foreign state received the designation.

Fox News’ Ed Henry questioned White House Press Secretary Jay Carney following the visit about the attendance of al-Amiri at the White House. Carney refused to answer and stating that he would need to investigate the issue. The full transcript from RealClearPolitics reads:

Ed Henry, FOX News: When Prime Minister Maliki was here this week there have been reports that a former commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, which U.S. officials say played a role in a 1996 terrorist attack that killed 19 U.S. servicemen.

He was here at the White House with Prime Minister Maliki because he’s a transportation minister, yeah, transportation minister —

Jay Carney, WH: Who’s [sic] report is that?

Henry: I believe the Washington Times has reported it. I think others have as well, but I think this is a Washington Times —

Carney: I have to take that question then, I’m not aware of it.

Henry: Can you just answer it later though, whether he was here and whether a background check had been done?

Carney: I’ll check on it for you.

Henry: Okay, thanks.

In 2016, Obama secured a deal with Iran which included a payment of $1.7 billion in cash. Breitbart News reporter John Hayward reported in September of 2016:

On Tuesday, the Obama administration finally admitted something its critics had long suspected: The entire $1.7 billion tribute paid to Iran was tendered in cash — not just the initial $400 million infamously shipped to the Iranians in a cargo plane — at the same moment four American hostages were released.

“Treasury Department spokeswoman Dawn Selak said in a statement the cash payments were necessary because of the ‘effectiveness of U.S. and international sanctions,’ which isolated Iran from the international finance system,” said ABC News, relating what might be one of history’s strangest humblebrags. The sanctions Obama threw away were working so well that he had to satisfy Iran’s demands with cold, hard cash!

By the way, those sanctions were not entirely related to Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons. As former prosecutor Andrew McCarthy pointed out at National Review last month, they date back to Iran’s seizure of hostages at the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, its support for “Hezbollah’s killing sprees,” and, most pertinently, Bill Clinton’s 1995 invocation of “federal laws that deal with national emergencies caused by foreign aggression,” by which he meant Iran’s support for international terrorism.

Former white house staffer during the Obama administration, Ben Rhodes, blamed President Trump’s policies for the Tuesday attack on the U.S. embassy.

Many have hit back at Rhodes for the accusations, including former CIA ops officer Bryan Dean Wright.

No further information has been given about al-Amiri’s presence at the U.S. embassy raid on Tuesday. Read more about the attack on the U.S. embassy in Baghdad at Breitbart News here.

 

Can We Even Be Fair Anymore?

I have been on this earth for 83 years and I remember elections and political climates from the days of the Franklin Delano Roosevelt administration through the present day.

Roosevelt was given credit for ending the Great Depression by the people in my part of the country and was very popular and could depend on plenty of votes to carry the “Solid South.”

He was much loved, but his wife Eleanor was maligned and disrespected for reasons I don’t even remember, probably because she was the epitome of what we imagined to be the haughty elite who thought themselves better than those of us much farther down the food chain.

Actually, Eleanor Roosevelt was a kind-hearted woman who did a lot of good in her life, but her finishing school speech and the inability to affect any “down to earthness” was enough to brand her as aloof and cold to edgy Southerners who were the object of so much criticism, hyperbole and jokes in those days, considered slow, dumb and incestuous by so many uninformed “Yankees.”

Actually, we knew very little about Mrs. Roosevelt, our concept was prejudiced, ill-conceived and stemmed from nothing more than swift glimpses of her in newspapers and the newsreels that showed in between the cartoons and the ever-present black and white westerns that played in every theater in the Southeast religiously every Saturday.

When Roosevelt died, and Harry S. Truman came to power, he was perceived as being weak and feckless and not able to hold his own with Stalin, who was trying to gobble the entire European Continent.

His critics were proven wrong many times over as Truman demonstrated his mettle time after time in the tumultuous period that followed the Second World War, and why anybody would consider the man who had to live with being responsible for dropping the first and only atomic bombs as being weak is ridiculous in hindsight.

Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, H.W. Bush, Clinton, W. Bush and Obama had their detractors and apologists, but no president in my lifetime has been the object of as much concerted scorn and downright hate as Donald Trump.

Congressional committees, TV personalities, columnists, bloggers, Hollywood heavyweights, foreign leaders and pundits and talking heads of all strata and stripe seem to have boiled their reason for living down to one thing, remove Trump from office.

And as we all now know, the articles of impeachment will go forward in the House and if passed there, which I have no doubt it will be, will go to trial in the Senate.

With a booming economy, record unemployment, stratospheric stock market, rebuilt military, economy crippling restrictions removed, independence from foreign oil, and too many positive improvements to list here, it’s strange why – especially with an election in eleven months – this incredible and determined army of malcontents would be arrayed against a president that was elected by the people.

Now let’s kick the gearshift into neutral for a few minutes and try to assess the situation, putting aside personal likes and dislikes, Democrats or Republican, left, right, middle of the road, whatever.

Let’s just take a look at what has surfaced so far, and I know that the hearings, especially the Nadler sessions with the Ivy League law professors were long, laborious, extremely hard to understand, but if you’ve gleaned anything from them use your own common sense in answering these questions, because the majority opinion of what I’m about to ask could well define our Republic for the next several decades.

  1. So far in the Congressional hearings have you seen or heard anything that is, in your own mind, an impeachable offense?
  2. Has President Trump done anything that has endangered our security?
  3. Should the president serve at the pleasure of the American electorate or the whim of the majority of the House of Representatives?
  4. If this goes forth and impeachment is carried out will there ever be another president with opposing majorities in the Congress who will not be in danger of impeachment?

Adam Schiff and the Democrats have opened a Pandora’s Box that could well keep this Republic embroiled in political civil war for the foreseeable future.

In essence, Schiff, Nadler, Pelosi and their Democrat majority are trying to strip We the People of our constitutional rights, to elect a president, with mere months to go until an election.

If this sordid cancer metastasizes to its full potential, Heaven help us all.

What do you think?

Pray for our troops our police and the peace of Jerusalem.

God Bless America
