DOJ Says Atty. Gen. Used Alias to Conduct Official Business to Protect Security, Privacy

Judicial Watch

Illustrating how government hides information from the American public, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch used a fake name to conduct official Department of Justice (DOJ) business in agency emails obtained by Judicial Watch. As the nation’s chief law enforcement officer Lynch, Barack Obama’s second attorney general, skirted public-records laws by using the alias Elizabeth Carlisle in emails she sent from her official DOJ account. In the records provided to Judicial Watch, the DOJ explains it as necessary to “protect her security and privacy and enable her to conduct Department business efficiently via email.”

This begs the question of how many other government officials use fake names and whether those aliases are searched when agencies process Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests. Besides Lynch, we have only discovered the use of such aliases among government operatives to conduct official business at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Obama’s EPA administrator, Lisa Jackson, famously used the alias Richard Windsor in a government email account to conduct official business and communicate with staff. Jackson even took required EPA computer training under the fake identity with the handle Windsor.Richard@epa.gov. She eventually resigned over the scandal, which brought to light the agency’s violations of federal open-records laws.

In Lynch’s case, Judicial Watch requested the records as part of an investigation into the Obama administration’s involvement in a United Nation’s international law enforcement coalition called Strong Cities Network (SCN). The purported mission of the global coalition was to build social cohesion and community resilience to counter violent extremism. The DOJ masterminded the agreement and Americans found out about the U.S.’s participation when Lynch announced it during a U.N. speech on September 29, 2015. Lynch referred to SCN as a “truly groundbreaking endeavor” and assured the notoriously corrupt world body that the Obama administration was deeply committed to the new initiative. “The government of the United States is fully invested in this collaborative approach and we have seen the value of empowering local communities by promoting initiatives they design and lead themselves,” Lynch said.

Following the Attorney General’s fiery U.N. delivery, a New York newspaper reported that the city was joining a new global, terror-busting network to combat homegrown extremism. Civil rights groups quickly denounced the U.S. participation, expressing concerns about law enforcement abuses against Muslims. In a letter to New York Mayor Bill de Blasio 22 civil rights groups warned that other programs created to counter violent extremism stigmatized “Muslim communities as suspicious and in need of special monitoring.” The anti-terror initiatives have also made “the relationship between Muslims and schools and social service providers into security-based engagements,” the letter states. SCN assures however, that “violent extremism and prevention efforts should not be associated with any particular religion, nationality or ethnic group.” In a statement the DOJ also guaranteed that the SCN will safeguard the rights of local citizens and communities. The State Department also put its weight behind SCN.

In its mission to educate the public about the operations and activities of government, Judicial Watch filed a FOIA request with the DOJ on October 15, 2015 for documents related to SCN. Specifically, Judicial Watch asked for legal opinions and analysis prepared by the DOJ relating to the U.S. involvement in the program, documents that form the foundation for the decision for the country to participate in SCN, all international agreements and related records involving the commitment of U.S. resources or personnel to SCN and records of communication between officials in the Office of the Attorney General relating to the initiative. The DOJ claimed to have no records related to the SCN and billed Judicial Watch a startling $50,000  to conduct the search that didn’t produce a single file.

Though the DOJ recently furnished the documents with Lynch’s fake name, the records were part of Judicial Watch’s original 2015 FOIA request. The records also show that then Assistant Attorney General John Carlin touted SCN at an event sponsored by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), an extremist leftist group that helped a gunman commit an act of terrorism against a conservative organization. A year later Carlin would launch the Michael Flynn counterintelligence investigation and seek the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant now in question.

BREAKING: BILL CLINTON JUST COMMITTED A CRIME SO HORRENDOUS THAT THE SENTENCE IS LIFE IN PRISON!

| Danny Gold for Liberty Writers reports, This is what we have all been waiting for! It has now become apparent that Bill Clinton committed one of the most horrific crimes in US History the same day he met with Loretta Lynch on her private jet. One of Bill Clinton’s most trusted legal advisers leaked that the former President intentionally ambushed Lynch that day and blackmailed her into promising NOT to charge Hillary Clinton for her email servers. The adviser revealed to legendary journalist Edward Klein: ‘BILL SAID, “I WANT TO BUSHWHACK LORETTA…”

DEMOCRATS BELIEVE THE MOST EFFECTIVE WEAPON AGAINST TERRORISM IS LOVE?

Football-Obama

Canada Free Press

We have all seen the definition of insanity…..compassion, unity and love will do nothing to stop the war on America by radical Islamic terrorism!

Loretta Lynch made a speech yesterday to the families and friends of those killed in a terrorist attack in Orlando, Florida.

“We stand with you to say that the good in the world far outweighs the evil; that our common humanity transcends our differences; and that our most effective response to terror and hatred is compassion, unity and love.”

The American people have lost faith in President Obama and his ability or commitment to fight terrorism here or frankly anywhere in the world. We have seen the president’s anger peak with Republicans and the NRA, but have seen nothing but compassion when it comes to the terrorist acts of radical Islam. He has blamed Christians for violence in their history while denying the violence and the connection of terrorism to Islam itself.

Loretta Lynch Will Not Promise to Follow FBI’s Recommendation on Hillary

Independent Sentinel

Who believes that the Democrat attorney general will indict the Democrats’ only chance to win the presidency in November? If the powers-that-be wanted to do their job, they could have indicted Hillary Clinton by now.

Unsurprisingly, Attorney General Loretta Lynch won’t commit to following the FBI’s recommendation in the case of Hillary Clinton’s emails, however, she promised an independent review during a hearing Wednesday, when asked during a House hearing Wednesday.

You can take that to the bank.

Obama Made a Call to McConnell and Grassley With a Chilling Suggestion

Obama-rights

Independent Sentinel

Barack Obama called Mitch McConnell and Chuck Grassley to let them know he was going to nominate a Supreme Court Justice and his SPOX hinted at a possible nominee – an unsurprisingly horrible choice. No one in the world listens to Obama and he can’t negotiate a deal without giving away the Crown Jewels but every member of Congress caves at the first opportunity to his demands.

If Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley give in and allow Barack Obama’s nominee for Justice Scalia’s seat to come to the floor, it’s only a short matter of time before the person will be appointed.

We all know what that will mean. A leftist will tilt the scales in favor of the far left and every one of their agenda items will be pushed through, leaving no recourse for the right. At that point, we need a new party though it will likely be too late.

Earnest described the calls as “entirely professional” and said Obama made clear “he is going to nominate someone.”

The Obama SPOX said some nice things about Loretta Lynch, who has been mentioned as a potential nominee. She received bipartisan support, he said.

That sounds like a strong suggestion.

Day after Muslim terrorist attacks in California, US Attorney General says jail Americans…

Day after Muslim terrorist attacks in California, US Attorney General says jail Americans who don’t stand with Islam

Speaking barely a day after the horrific terrorist attack in California, Obama-appointed Attorney General Loretta Lynch said at the annual Muslim Advocates annual Dinner that critics of Islam “will be prosecuted” if speech about Islam “edges” towards violence:

 

Attorney General Loretta Lynch on Thursday warned that the Justice Department could take aggressive action against people whose anti-Muslim rhetoric “edges towards violence and told the Muslim community that “we stand with you in this.”

Lynch made it clear that she shares those concerns, but vowed to use the DOJ to protect Muslims from discrimination and violence. Noting the rise in violence against Muslims and mosques in the wake of the Paris attacks, Lynch added that, “When we talk about the First amendment we [must] make it clear that actions predicated on violent talk are not American. They are not who we are, they are not what we do, and they will be prosecuted.”

“My message not just to the Muslim community but to all Americans is ‘We cannot give in to the fear that these backlashes are really based on,'” Lynch said.

On the Muslim Advocates web site advertising the dinner and Ms. Lynch as the keynote speaker, it says under her photo that she is going to discuss the “priorities of the U. S. Department of Justice, particularly its efforts to combat anti-Muslim hate and discrimination”:

If you think it’s bad that Obama is threatening YOUR right to free speech, it’s not going to get any better if Obama gets his way in bringing tens of thousands of Muslims into the country as “refugees.”

How much things have changed within the last decade.

Obama Administration and UN Announce Global Police Force to Fight ‘Extremism’ In U.S.

On Wednesday, Attorney General Loretta Lynch announced at the United Nations that her office would be working in several American cities to form what she called the Strong Cities Network (SCN), a law enforcement initiative that would encompass the globe.

This amounts to nothing less than the overriding of American laws, up to and including the United States Constitution, in favor of United Nations laws that would henceforth be implemented in the United States itself – without any consultation of Congress at all.

The United Nations is a sharia-compliant world body, and Obama, speaking there just days ago, insisted that “violent extremism” is not exclusive to Islam (which it is). Obama is redefining jihad terror to include everyone but the jihadists. So will the UN, driven largely by the sharia-enforcing Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and the pro-Islamic post-American President Obama, use a “global police force” to crush counter-jihad forces?

After all, with Obama knowingly aiding al-Qaeda forces in Syria, how likely is it that he will use his “global police force” against actual Islamic jihadists? I suspect that instead, this global police force will be used to impose the blasphemy laws under the sharia (Islamic law), and to silence all criticism of Islam for the President who proclaimed that “the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”

What is a global police force doing in our cities?

Welcome to the New GOP Majority

Conservative Review
A Congressional Quarterly analysis showing that Senate Republicans have voted with Obama more than 50% since the beginning of the new Congress – more than they did while serving in the minority.  But there’s more to the story.  It’s not just the fact that Republicans are voting with Obama, it’s that they have deliberately ceded structural control of the chamber to Democrats.

Typically, the majority party will manipulate the floor process to block initiatives from the minority party and vote on wedge issues favorable to their side – ones that embarrass those in the minority.  As such, even if the majority party lacks the votes to overcome a filibuster and pass the legislation, they can use the amendment process on the bill to shame the minority and draw sharp contrasts in the hopes of winning the next election.  Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) was the ultimate master at pursuing Obama’s agenda while blocking all Republican amendments.

Now that Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is in control of the floor process, nothing has changed.  They are pursuing Obama’s agenda… while blocking many Republican amendments! Continue reading

Lynch vs. the Constitution

By Andrew C. McCarthy

McConnell Rushes to Nominate Loretta Lynch Who Promises to Violate the Constitution

Independent Sentinel

The Loretta Lynch nomination has never been held up because she suggested she will violate the law as Attorney General nor was it held up because she refused to answer significant questions and feigned ignorance during the questioning. Her nomination was held up so it could be used as a wedge in the battle over the anti-human trafficking law.

Democrats found some anti-abortion language in the bill and, thanks to Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, Republicans backed off. A change made to the bill to help Republicans save face requires money to help victims be taken from existing community health center funds that already have abortion restrictions.

Now that the agreement has been reached, the Senate will vote quickly on Loretta Lynch’s nomination. Republican leaders had insisted the trafficking bill be finished before any vote on Loretta Lynch to replace Attorney General Eric Holder.

“As soon as we finish the trafficking bill, as I’ve indicated for some time now, we’ll move to the president’s nominee for attorney general — hopefully in the next day or so,” said Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Kentucky Republican.

Loretta Lynch has majority support in a Republican-controlled Senate and she has made it relatively clear she will uphold Obama’s laws as opposed to the Constitution despite the fact that she will be the chief law enforcement officer in the land.
