Fake News Sites Continue False Claim about the Iran Nuke Deal

The mainstream media and President Obama have made a considerable issue out of the dissemination of fake news leading up to the election, even going so far as to hint that Donald Trump’s victory might have been owed in part to the work of the fakers. On cue, The Washington Post recently published a story citing anonymous sources that claimed the fake news was the product of Russian propaganda. Yet Fortune magazine concluded that the Post’s “analysis was fairly weak,” and “Much of [the evidence] seems flimsy at best.” That didn’t stop the Post from blaming Russian propaganda, based on biased evidence and anonymous sources.

As AIM’s Cliff Kincaid recently explained, Facebook and Google are looking to create an algorithm that eliminates fake news on their websites. To do so is to risk disproportionate discrimination against information from outside the mainstream, including conservative and left-wing blogs, points out The Hill. “Critics also charge that the ‘fake news’ trope obscures the fact that the mainstream media have their own problem with false or misleading stories,” writes Cathy Young in The Hill. Kincaid also cites something called the First Draft Coalition, a sort of Ministry of Truth comprised of media organizations that we are supposed to trust to produce content free of fake news.

In fact, many of these so-called reputable news organizations are responsible for what is perhaps the fake news story of the decade. The story involves one of President Obama’s major foreign policy legacies, the Iran nuclear “deal.”

For about a year now, we have been pointing out that the Iranian nuclear deal between the P5+1 and Iran, is in fact, not a deal at all. There is an English language version, which the American public has seen (except for the side deals that were kept hidden from Congress and the American public). Also, there is an Iranian version passed in their Majlis, or parliament, which is considerably different.

Will Obama Turn Loose an Unrepentant Terrorist?

SECURE FREEDOM MINUTE

Among Barack Obama’s most toxic legacies is his campaign to shrink America’s prison population by turning loose many thousands of convicted felons.  Watch for his already record-setting numbers of prisoners granted clemency, pardons or commuted sentences to grow even larger in the remaining weeks of this presidency.

Surely though, even a Commander-in-Chief capable of such reckless disregard for public safety would not release one of the nation’s most notorious, murderous and unrepentant terrorists?  Unfortunately, it appears Mr. Obama is actively considering doing just that, by commuting the sentence of Oscar Lopez Rivera, a leader of the Puerto Rican terror group known as the FALN.

Fortunately, dozens of family members of Lopez Rivera’s victims and retired law enforcement personnel involved with his case wrote the President yesterday, strongly recommending against unleashing this dangerous criminal on our people.  They speak for all of us.

Another Day, Another Act of Jihad

SECURE FREEDOM MINUTE

Another day, yet another act of jihad.

To be sure, the authorities are discouraging us from connecting the dots between the fact that the perpetrator who tried to run over, then butcher, innocent Ohio State University students is a Somali refugee and that he recently publicly professed his Muslim faith.

They tell us they’re still trying to establish a motive.  They say they have not yet concluded that it was a terrorist attack.  And no one else is supposed to jump to conclusions.

In fact, it’s generally the case in such incidents when the perp is a foreign-born Muslim, the violence is not an inexplicable “lone wolf” attack.  It’s an individual jihadist action, intended to terrify and dominate infidels in furtherance of the Islamic supremacists’ goal of imposing worldwide their totalitarian doctrine, Sharia.

It amounts to a dangerous self-delusion to pretend otherwise.

Former Intelligence Officer: 15% of Refugees are ISIS

COUNTER JIHAD

The shockingly high figure comes from one of LTC(R) Shaffer’s sources involved with the refugee flows.

Last week we saw CIA head John Brennan testify that ISIS has “a large cadre” of foreign fighters to serve in attacking the West, and also that ISIS was probably using refugee flows as a means of vectoring its agents into the West.  Now a former high-level intelligence officer claims that he has a source that gives a more specific figure.  At least fifteen percent of refugees are ISIS, according to LTC(R) Anthony Shaffer of the London Center for Policy Research.  The claim came in an interview Shaffer gave to a radio show hosted by Larry O’Connor and Brian Wilson on WMAL.  (You can listen to the interview here.)

“I got the percentage from one of my sources. We’re talking about, right now, in the refugee stream, between 15-17% of individuals coming through the refugee stream are ISIS.”

The ‘Big Lie’ Is Back

In 2011, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton promised the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to use “some old fashioned techniques of peer pressure and shaming” against those whose exercise of free speech “we abhor.”

At the time, she had in mind specifically perpetrators of what the OIC, the Muslim Brotherhood, other Islamic supremacists and their enablers on the Left call “defamation of Islam.” But the same playbook – in the tradition of Mrs. Clinton’s mentor, Saul Alinsky – is now being followed with a vengeance against what is abhorred by the cabal best described as the Red-Green Axis.

Much in evidence among such “old-fashioned techniques” now being employed is what’s known as “the Big Lie.” It entails the endless repetition of outrageous falsehoods to defame, and ultimately silence, one’s political opponents.

Three good men Donald Trump has selected for key strategic and national security positions are currently getting the Big Lie treatment: his White House Counsel Steve Bannon, Attorney General-designate Senator Jeff Sessions, and incoming National Security Advisor Lieutenant General Michael Flynn. They are being relentlessly vilified as “racists,” “bigots” and “haters.”

Clinton Accountability Goes Forward

JUDICIAL WATCH

We’ve repeated time and time again that your Judicial Watch would pursue accountability for Hillary Clinton and her associates no matter what happened on Election Day.

Keeping that promise, we released this week 508 pages of documents in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit seeking information about possible conflicts of interest between the actions taken by Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State and Bill Clinton’s activities.  Further demonstrating the Obama administration’s contempt for transparency, more than 440 pages of the documents were redacted either in full, or with only minor notations remaining.  The documents were released as a result of a federal court order in FOIA lawsuit filed against the Obama State Department back in 2013.

The documents included an undated, unsigned memo entitled “Private Sector Opportunities for WJC” [William Jefferson Clinton].  The memo provided capabilities analysis of three companies with major investment interests in Haiti: Tetra Pak, Seaboard, and Cemex.

The documents also include a lengthy March 2009 email from Clinton Foundation Director of Foreign Policy Amitabh Desai to former Assistant Secretary of State Andrew Shapiro and subsequently forwarded to top Clinton aide Jake Sullivan containing the names of nearly 200 then-current and former heads of state to be invited to the 2009 Clinton Global Initiative annual meeting.  Clinton hadn’t yet been Secretary of State three months before her cash machine was shaking down the world!

The list includes dignitaries from Saudi Arabia, which gave $14.5 million to the Clinton Foundation; Kuwait, which gave between $5 and $10 million; Oman, the United Arab Emirates, and Qatar – all of which donated between $1 and $5 million over the years.  In February 2015, the Washington Post reported, “A third of foundation donors who have given more than $1 million are foreign governments or other entities … and foreign donors make up more than half of those who have given more than $5 million.”

In July 2014, Judicial Watch released more than 200 conflict-of-interest reviews by State Department ethics advisers of proposed Bill Clinton speaking and consulting engagements during Hillary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state.  The documents show that Mr. Clinton’s office proposed 215 speeches around the globe.  And 215 times, the State Department stated that it had “no objection.”  The Washington Examiner published a report by Judicial Watch Chief Investigative Reporter Micah Morrison and Examiner then-Senior Watchdog Reporter Luke Rosiak which notes that Mr. Clinton “earned $48 million while his wife presided over U.S. foreign policy, raising questions about whether the Clintons fulfilled ethics agreements related to the Clinton Foundation during Mrs. Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State.”

We sued for these documents in 2013 but we first asked for them in 2011.  It is a scandal that the Obama administration (including Clinton’s top operatives at the State Department) stalled the release of these smoking gun documents for over five years.

These documents show that Hillary and Bill Clinton’s money machine sought to shake down almost every country in the world, from Saudi Arabia to desperately poor Haiti.  President-elect Trump can’t move fast enough to launch a serious criminal investigation of the unholy – but highly profitable – alliance between the Clinton Foundation and the Clinton State Department.

A Tiny Minority of a Million Muslims in America

The US Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO) is boasting that its voter registration campaign “One Million Voters” across mosques and schools has doubled the number of registered Muslim voters to over a million.

The media is cheering this development even though USCMO has a history that makes the KKK look downright sunny. USCMO was in the news last year for its statement denying the Muslim genocide of Armenians and arguing that any recognition of the massacre must also recognize “Muslim suffering.”

USCMO’s Secretary General Oussama Jammal had engaged in 9/11 Trutherism at a rally backing a Hamas supporter. He was president of the Bridgeview Mosque which raised money for the head of Islamic Jihad. The Chicago Tribune described this as the result of a “hard line” takeover of the mosque.
