Marking the 100th anniversary of the 1917 Russian revolution, Cliff Kincaid of America’s Survival, Inc. introduces the November 10, 2017, ASI “Russia-gate” conference. Cliff examines America’s communist revolution – the eight years of the Obama presidency. “What you are going to see and hear today is an outline of the forces here and abroad who want to see President Donald J. Trump not only impeached but dead,” Kincaid says. He adds, “Our books, Comrade Obama Unmasked and Red Star Rising, are absolutely essential to understanding what’s really happening behind the scenes.”
Family Security Matters
At long last, most of the files captured when U.S. Special Forces killed al-Qaeda’s leader in May 2011 have been released. Although bits and pieces have dribbled out, they should have been public long since.
The best short discussion of the files is in The Long War Journal, written by Bill Roggio and Tom Joscelyn, my colleagues at the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies. They, along with Stephen Hayes at The Weekly Standard, have long advocated the release of the archive.
The files are very important. They provide invaluable insight into the growing terrorist threat to the United States, document AQ operations well beyond the Middle East, and show remarkable patience in the use of media. Bin Laden is gone, but his blueprint for his organization’s long-term strategy remains active.
Why has the intelligence community been so reluctant to release the files? It took so long because a lot of the story they tell is at odds with the official narrative, according to which AQ had been gravely weakened, and bin Laden himself largely marginalized, by the time of the attack. Other files document the details of the oft-denied cooperation between AQ and the Tehran regime of the Islamic Republic of Iran. Still others document relations with Pakistan and with other governments and regimes in the region.
General Michael Flynn, whose DIA experts had access to the whole archive and had analyzed key parts of it, wrote in a best-selling book I co-authored (“The Field of Fight”) that
When (Obama) and his supporters were assuring the American people that al Qaeda was broken and on the run, we learned that their strength had roughly doubled.
One letter to bin Laden reveals that al Qaeda was working on chemical and biological weapons in Iran….Others speak of Mumbai-style attacks on European cities….The story of the bin Laden documents is just one of many…
That’s why another top American general has called the bin Laden files “the single largest collection of senior terrorist materials ever,” and why the suppression of the documents is so serious. It will take time for public debate to reveal the full significance of the archive, and some of it remains classified. This massive release will help, but we must not ignore the fact that the CIA did what it could to prevent an informed debate all along.
It seems clear that our picture of al-Qaeda has been erroneous in the past, and may still be. The impetus for releasing the documents seems to have come from the president’s office. In any event, we can hope that they will put an end to the very damaging notion that Sunnis and Shi’ites don’t work closely together.
Curiously, we were smarter when we knew less. In 1998, when the U.S. government indicted bin Laden and al-Qaeda for the first bombing of the World Trade Center, the indictment said
Al Qaeda forged alliances with the National Islamic Front in the Sudan and with the government of Iran and its associated terrorist group, Hezbollah, for the purpose of working together against their perceived common enemies in the West, particularly the United States.
Back then, it wasn’t hard for us to acknowledge that AQ Sunni bombers worked with Shi’te terrorists in Hezbollah and elsewhere in the Iranian regime. Then we got more sophisticated, to our misfortune. Let’s hope the bin Laden documents help our understanding, and eventually help shape a winning strategy.

Yes, there have been stories about young people turning to socialism. One of the latest polls shows that a majority of millenials would prefer to live under a socialist, fascist or communist system rather than a capitalist one.
But thing are getting a bit more disturbing now that elections have been happening. Turns out one of the Virginia Democrats elected in last week’s special election. Lee Carter, is a young unreconstructed socialist, and a member of the far-left Democratic Socialists of America. That organization has seen a fivefold increase in its membership, from about 6,000 to now 30,000. You can bet the Communist Party U.S.A., now run in part by the fairly youthful and charismatic Libero della Piana, is seeing similar membership numbers rise.
For decades, organizations and individuals have undermined our American education system by attacking our beliefs in a constitutional republic and our fundamental Judeo-Christian principles. These have been supplanted with a “multicultural” viewpoint, which has taken the place of traditional American perspectives and values with accommodation and appeasement of protected minorities depicted as victims of the dominant culture. Oil-rich Arab-Muslim nations, including Saudi Arabia and its Muslim Brotherhood cohorts, have used multiculturalism to target impressionable youths in our public schools, promote Islam, and advance Islamic political agendas. Under the subterfuge of promoting a multicultural educational environment, these agents have replaced time-honored educational materials of American ideals and historical perspectives with anti-American, anti-Israel, anti-Judeo-Christian, and pro-Islamic rhetoric.
This re-engineering of the education system to disproportionately highlight the virtues and contributions of Islamic ideology is part of “civilizational jihad,” the enemy’s term for the subversion of our society. It was defined in the 1991 Muslim Brotherhood document “An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America,” presented as evidence in the 2008 Holy Land Foundation terrorism trial. The document calls for the stealth takeover of North America through infiltration of all of society, with the ultimate goal of destroying the U.S. and turning it into a Muslim nation.
You know it’s funny. You have a corrupt Democrat Senator Robert Menendez on trial for bribery, conspiracy and other charges. The media basically ignores the story, Democrats refuse to answer if what should happen to Menendez when rarely questioned and Mitch McConnell is as silent as can be. Robert Menendez has even been accused of having sex with underage hookers in Dominican Republic in this case. So where are all the calls for him to resign, proven or not?
|Still waiting on Mitch McConnell to call for Robert Menendez to resign|
And then there’s the Roy Moore, the Alabama Senate candidate who now has Gloria Allred joining the pile on of women who accuse Moore of sexual harassment when they were teenagers. Mitch McConnell has already decided that he believes these women, without proof and has called for Moore to step aside and drop out of the race which has an election on December 12.
Regardless if you believe the women or Roy Moore, there still is no concrete proof if Moore did what’s claimed. He’s never been sued for it, never been on trial (like Menendez) yet McConnell calls for Moore to drop out and continues to remain silent on Menendez. Do you see how this is an obvious ploy by the GOPe to get rid of Moore because “Big” Luther Strange lost the runoff? You’d have to be blind as a liberal to not see the obvious connection.
Thee answer the this whole Roy Moore situation is quite clear for McConnell and other GOPe scum. Shut the hell up until after the election, seat Moore once he polishes off the slimy Democrat running against him and see what happens. If actual proof of what these women are accusing Roy Moore of are presented, you expel him from the Senate. Then the RINO Alabama governor can appoint Luther Strange again and McConnell gets his butt buddy back.
Yet you have an actual Senator on trial for bribery, corruption and sex with underage hookers, but McConnell remains silent on him? McConnell has got to go.
WikiLeaks announces “Vault 8”
Those releases were part of a series of leaks WikiLeaks called Vault 7. Now, WikiLeaks says Hive is just the first of a long string of similar releases, a series WikiLeaks calls Vault 8, which will consist of source code for tools previously released in the Vault 7 series.
The WikiLeaks announcement has sent shivers up the spines of infosec experts everywhere, as it reminded them of April this year when a hacking group named The Shadow Brokers published cyber-weapons allegedly stolen from the NSA.
Some of the tools included in that release have been incorporated in many malware families and have been at the center of all three major ransomware outbreaks that have taken place n 2017 — WannaCry, NotPetya, and Bad Rabbit. More here.
