Now Huma Abedin is Being Scrutinized for Possible Corruption

Free Republic

via Red Statements

Sen Chuck Grassley has written two letter to the State Dept. concerning a special arrangement for Huma Abedin, Hillary’s closest adviser. At the same time Abedin worked for the State Dept, she also worked for a company called Teneo. For those of you who don’t know it, Teneo bills itself as an expert in helping your company get government contracts. Can you see the obvious conflict of interest here? The Senate is trying to find out if Teneo’s clients received government grants and if they did, was Abedin and or Hillary involved? Abedin also had a private email account that ran off Hillary’s server.

Here are the highlights of that letter:

Obama Widens the Back Door for Terrorists Entering the USA

Moonbattery

Just how obvious can Obama get away with making it that he does not mean this country well? On infodump Friday, State Department spokescretin Jen Psaki proclaimed:

“The United States has admitted 524 Syrians since 2011. We’re likely to admit 1,000 to 2,000 Syrian refugees for permanent resettlement in Fiscal Year 2015 and a somewhat higher number, though still in the low thousands, in Fiscal Year 2016.”

From about 100 per to thousands per year. Quite an increase. If insufficient resistance is encountered, the numbers will rise:

[Assistant Secretary of State Anne] Richard said the United States was already reviewing around 9,000 Syrian refugee cases referred by a United Nations agency and was receiving “roughly a thousand new ones each month.”

Something else recently exploded out of Syria, other than welfare colonists. Let’s see, what was it…

Oh yes — ISIS:

A senior FBI official has admitted the United States is finding it virtually impossible to screen out terrorists that could be hiding among the thousands of Syrian “refugees” heading soon to American cities.

The U.S. simply does not have the resources to stop Islamic radicals in Syria from slipping into the country through the State Department’s refugee-resettlement program, said Michael Steinbach, deputy assistant director of the FBI’s counter terrorism unit.

Separating legitimate refugees from terrorists was difficult enough in Iraq, where the U.S. had a large occupation force. Even then, the U.S. government’s vetting process missed “dozens” of Iraqi jihadists who slipped into the country posing as refugees and took up residence in Kentucky, according to a November 2013 ABC News report.

We have no presence in the failed state Syria, so we have no idea who these people are. But it won’t be long before we start finding out.

State Dept. Issues Worldwide Travel Alert

Newsmax

The United States issued a worldwide travel alert Friday, warning Americans to be vigilant during the holiday period, especially in the wake of a deadly siege in Australia.

Sydney this week saw a dramatic siege in a cafe that began Monday and left two hostages and a gunman dead.

“The lone wolf attack in Sydney, Australia… resulting in the deaths of two hostages, is a reminder that US citizens should be extra cautious, maintain a very high level of vigilance and take appropriate steps to enhance their personal security,” the State Department alert read.

The agency said an analysis of past attacks “strongly suggests” terrorists this holiday season are focusing not only on US government facilities but also on hotels, shopping areas, places of worship and schools.

“US citizens abroad should be mindful that terrorist groups and those inspired by them can pose unpredictable threats in public venues,” the alert said.

Obama State Department urges “all sides to maintain calm” after Hamas murders baby

Unconscionable and morally outrageous, but not at all surprising coming from the relentlessly anti-Israel Obama Administration. “Immoral: State Dept. Urges ‘All Sides to Maintain Calm’ After Hamas Murders Baby,” by David Steinberg, PJ Media, October 22, 2014:

At what point does a political hack choose to sacrifice one’s grasp of right and wrong for the job, or for the cause? Time and again, this election season has shown Washington’s careerists to be capable of just about any negation of ethics towards the goals of a campaign, and we’ve certainly seen that from this State Department before, most notably when Hillary Clinton lied about the Benghazi attack to a victim’s family, alongside his body.

But a baby was just thrown “10 to 20 meters” through the air and landed on her head.

The following quote is what the Obama administration, via Jen Psaki, came up with. Bear in mind that the deceased child — called “a pure girl with a holy soul” by her stricken grandfather, and what words could better describe a three-month old – is an American citizen:

White House Asked If They Will Help U.S. Marine Rotting In Mexican Prison: Nope…

Enraging to say the least.

Via CNS News:

It’s the State Department’s problem.

On the same day Republican lawmakers urged President Obama to do something about an American war veteran languishing in a Mexican jail, a White House spokesman indicated it’s not going to happen.

“My colleagues at the State Department are very focused on this issue,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said at Wednesday’s briefing.”And so, I’d refer you to them for their efforts to work with the Mexican government.”

Rep. Ed Royce (R-Calif.), chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, says he asked Vice President Biden to ask President Obama to call the Mexican president directly to urge leniency for Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi — but apparently it hasn’t happened.

James Foley’s Brother: I Was “Specifically Threatened By State Department” Against Raising Private Funds To Rescue Him

Weasel Zippers

One can understand and appreciate the concept of not paying a ransom, not negotiating with terrorists.

But Obama apparently picks and chooses when to negotiate with terrorists, choosing to do so in the case of Bowe Bergdahl, and not in the case of James Foley, as his brother points out.

Indeed, in the Foley case, as his brother notes, the State Department not only didn’t help, but went so far as to specifically threaten him when he and his family tried to raise private funds to rescue his brother. He does not elaborate further on the nature of those threats but said he was “appalled” by the regime’s approach.
