No one has written any more criticism of Donald Trump than this author. I’ve been repelled by his smears of Ted Cruz, his mindless and campaign-damaging comments and I’ve said so. But I now have to alter my views. Recently, George Soros was hacked, and thousands of documents from his Open Society Foundation were leaked online. They make it very clear that he has launched a many-faceted attack on Western civilization, one facet of which is to facilitate acceptance of large numbers of Muslim migrants into Europe. But the plot isn’t limited to Europe. Zero Hedge explains, in an article titled, “Soros Hack Reveals Plot Behind Europe’s Refugee Crisis,” contains multiple links to a vast trove of documents:
“Several notable revelations have emerged among the data dump of over 2,500 documents exposing the internal strategy of the organization, which expose some of Soros’ tactics to influence and benefit from Europe’s refugee crisis, the opportunistic funding and influence of media organizations, providing cash for … groups including the infamous La Raza, Soros’ funding of various ‘social justice’ organizations while paying to track unfavorable media coverage including that of Pamela Geller.
“One particular leaked memo, profiled earlier by the Daily Caller, argues that Europe’s refugee crisis should be accepted as a ‘new normal,’ and that the refugee crisis means ‘new opportunities’ for Soros’ organization to influence immigration policies on a global scale.
“OSF program officer Anna Crowley and program specialist Katin Rosin co-authored the May 12 memo, titled “Migration Governance and Enforcement Portfolio Review.”
The memo was put out by the “International Migration Initiative” (IMI). The title alone should tell us that Europe’s inexplicable welcome of the disastrous Muslim migration may have been no accident, and the report confirms that impression:
“In a section titled, ‘Our Ambitions,’ the authors explain: ‘Our premise for engaging in work related to governance was that, in addition to mitigating the negative effects of enforcement, we should also be supporting actors in the field proactively seeking to change the policies, rules, and regulations that govern migration.’”
Zero Hedge adds, “The memo explains how Europe’s refugee crisis is opening doors for Soros’ organization to further influence global immigration policy.
Links include an extensive list of “226 [members of European parliaments] who are proven or likely Open Society allies.” It’s titled, “Reliable allies in the European Parliament (2014 – 2019).”
Soros has his tentacles deep in America as well. ZH also notes that IMI works with entities in America, such as the Migration Policy Institute, headquartered in Washington, DC; and says MPI is “a strong advocate of amnesty for illegal immigrants in America.”
Yet another Open Society entity, U.S. Programs, has spent years “advancing core priority issues at the national level,” and “work[ing] to enable local and state actors to play a more critical role in shaping discussions around criminal justice, drug policy, immigrants’ rights, government security, and other key issues at the state level.”
“Throughout its 15-year history, U.S. Programs has complemented its national work with state and local grantmaking. The Emma Lazarus Fund, the Southern Initiative, the Program on Reproductive Health and Rights, and the Youth Initiative all had a strong presence in states like Louisiana, North Carolina, Texas, New York, and California.”
Breitbart revealed, “The documents further confirm that the Open Society last year approved $650,000 to ‘invest in technical assistance and support for the groups at the core of the burgeoning #BlackLivesMatter movement.’ The information was contained in a detailed 69-page Open Society report on the agenda of an Open Society U.S. Programs board meeting held in New York October 1 to October 2, 2015…. George Soros’s Open Society Institute viewed the 2015 Baltimore unrest following the death of Freddie Gray as opening a ‘unique opportunity’”
Zero Hedge also reports “confirmation of Soros’ funding and support for Social Justice organizations, taken from a memo revealing the ‘Democracy and Power Fund.’”
Soros funds the deeply Clinton-linked Center for American Progress and directly funds her campaign. It doesn’t take much brains to see that Obama and Clinton have been carrying out Soros’s aims here in America, and that Clinton will continue doing so. Putting the hacked information together with her past actions in concert with Obama forces me to take a new position on this election.
Here’s an example why, no matter how many dumb mistakes Donald Trump may make; no matter how unpleasant he’s been to those we may have supported, I have no choice but to support him over Hillary Clinton. Why? Because, with all his bad qualities, there is no indication that Trump has betrayed his country, or intends to. We can theorize that he might become a dictator, or that he may take away our freedoms. But there’s no evidence of that.
Not so, with Hillary Clinton.
Allegations have been made, by people of unquestionable integrity, that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton took actions in Libya that could be considered treasonous. I feel we must not allow Clinton to be elected president, if there’s any legal way to prevent that. The one legal way to prevent her being elected is by voting for her GOP opponent.
First, let’s talk about the findings of the Citizens Commission on Benghazi. You can read the report, and read the names of the members of the commission here: You will see immediately these are all patriots, loyal Americans, and experts on the topic as well.
Probably, you never heard of the CCB, or their report. We can thank our far left media for that.
We all do know that four Americans were killed in Benghazi, Libya, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens. But the public does not know what really took place there. Knowing the Obama Admin. was not going to investigate itself, the Commission did its own investigation. Clare Lopez, quintessential expert on the Middle East and Islam, is one of its members.
Two points: al-Qa’eda attacked us on 9/11 and killed almost 3,000 Americans, in the heart of New York City. That group is therefore an enemy of America. 18 U.S. Code § 2381 defines Treason as:
“Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason…”
I won’t go into the prescribed penalties.
The CCB report says: “At the time of his overthrow, Muammar Qaddafi was an ally of the United States in the Global War on Terror.” He was in particular fighting al-Qa’eda. You may remember that he made peace with GWB.
“On 17 March 2011 the United Nations Security Council passed resolution 1973 for a “No Fly Zone,” ostensibly to protect Libyan civilians caught up in the hostilities between Libyan government forces and the rebel forces, which were dominated by the Libyan Muslim Brotherhood and al-Qa’eda.
“The following day in London, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced U.S. government support for the Brotherhood-led Libyan Transitional National Council in its revolt against Qaddafi.” [She should have resigned before doing that, but did not.]
As you may know, the Muslim Brotherhood has declared in its Explanatory Memorandum, its intention to overthrow our government. Therefore, it is also an enemy of America:
“Understanding the role of the Muslim Brother in North America:
The process of settlement is a “Civilization-Jihadist Process” with all the word means. The Ikhwan [Brotherhood] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within…”
The rebel militias in Libya were Muslim “Brotherhood-led” and “al-Qa’eda-dominated.” Supporting such groups looks to this layman a lot like treason.
What else did our president and secretary of state do? According to the CCB:
“The U.S. was fully aware of and facilitating the delivery of weapons to the al-Qa’eda-dominated rebel militias throughout the 2011 rebellion.”
It’s really quite simple. Read again the definition of treason, if you’re unsure.
Clare Lopez was interviewed by WND, about the CCB report. Here are the quotes from Ms. Lopez:
“In early 2011, before Gadhafi was deposed, Christopher Stevens came to Benghazi in a cargo ship, and his title at the time was envoy to the Libyan rebels, which basically means Christopher Stevens was America’s very first envoy to al-Qaida,’ explained Clare Lopez.”
“’At that time, Stevens was facilitating the delivery of weapons to the al-Qaida-related militia in Libya,’ Lopez continued. ‘The weapons were produced at factories in Eastern Europe and shipped to a logistics hub in Qatar. The weapons were financed by the UAE and delivered via Qatar mostly on ships, with some possibly on airplanes, for delivery to Benghazi. The weapons were small arms, including Kalashnikovs, rocket-propelled grenades and lots of ammunition.’”
“’This was about weapons going into Libya, and Stevens is coordinating with Abdelhakim Belhadj, the leader of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, other al-Qaida-affiliated militia leaders and leaders of the Libyan Muslim Brotherhood that directed the rebellion against Gadhafi as an offshoot of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood,’ Lopez said.
“’After Gadhafi is deposed and Stevens was appointed U.S. ambassador to Libya, the flow of weapons reverses,’ Lopez noted.
“’Now Stevens has the job of overseeing the shipment of arms from Libya to Syria to arm the rebels fighting Assad, some of whom ultimately become al-Nusra in Syria and some become ISIS.’”
And we all know of the effects on our European allies of our illegal proxy war in Syria.
WND also quotes Kevin Shipp, a former CIA counterintelligence expert:
“‘The shocking part, maybe even a violation of international law that the Obama administration has been terrified to have fully revealed, is that Stevens as part of his duties as a State Department employee was assisting in the shipment of arms first into Libya for the al-Qaida-affiliated militia, with the weapons shipped subsequently out of Libya into Syria for use by the al-Qaida-affiliated rebels fighting Assad,’ Shipp told WND.”
TWICE arming al-Qaeda, WND is saying.
In a 2013 article, Clare Lopez describes America’s literal switching of sides to that of the jihadis, in one perverted act after another: “The current administration consistently and repeatedly appeared to respond eagerly to the calls for revolution from the Muslim Brotherhood’s senior Islamic scholar, Yousef al-Qaradawi. When al-Qaradawi said that Mubarak had to go, the U.S. waited a whole three days before throwing America’s key ally in the Middle East for over three decades under the bus.
“When al-Qaradawi called for Libyan rebels to kill Muammar Qaddafi (so the al-Qa’eda jihadis in his jails could get out and join the revolution), the U.S. led the Western military campaign that brought al-Qa’eda, the MB, and chaos to Libya.”
And then, in 2011 the Administration “officially purged our counterterrorism lexicon and training curriculum, and blacklisted and professionally marginalized our most capable instructors of Islamic doctrine, and thereby destroyed all ability to pre-empt Islamic terror in the ideological, pre-attack phase.”
This was all on Hillary Clinton’s watch and with her help, as Secretary of State.
But most ominous of all was “Since 2011, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had worked closely with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation [OIC] through the ‘Istanbul Process’ to pass UN Resolution 16/18,” which calls on all nations to essentially criminalize criticism of Islam.
“Key to the Istanbul Process, wrote Ms. Lopez, “is the U.S. Department of State commitment to take a leading role in a series of OIC meetings at the Foreign Minister level, the first of which was held in Istanbul in December 2011, hosted by the U.S. State Department.”
“The reported focus of that 3-day working session, held behind closed doors, was ‘Islamophobia,’ and how to implement tactics that would ensure Islam not be defamed.”
The OIC, a group of 56 Islamic states, had been demanding in the UN for years to silence “defamation” of Islam. Working with Clinton, they changed the wording, so that Resolution 16/18 duplicated the wording in Brandenburg v. Ohio, which sets the standard for an exception to First Amendment protection of speech:
“(1) Speech can be prohibited if it is ‘directed at inciting or producing imminent lawless action’ and (2) it is ‘likely to incite or produce such action.’”
The key is use of the perverted logic of “the test of consequences,” which, if implemented, could have held Pamela Geller—not the terrorists—responsible if her Mohammad cartoon contest had resulted in jihadi murders.
We can expect Clinton to carry out her work in curtailing our precious First Amendment, if she is elected.
Those who say the two candidates are the same are misinformed. They’re not.
Others may do as they wish, but there’s no way I can allow Clinton to continue the work of Barack Obama, her partner in these acts. These were not the acts of patriotic American leaders; they were the acts of radical revolutionaries, trying to topple the dictators who had been controlling these evil terror groups.
Unless this is a total lie, unless the most patriotic of Americans are liars, this was treason. And to me, country must come first.
