With Fall of Raqqa, ISIS Is No Longer a Terror State – Breitbart

Tuesday was a landmark day in the war against the Islamic State, as both the ISIS capital of Raqqa in Syria and its Philippine stronghold of Marawi were liberated.

Analysts caution that ISIS has not been destroyed, but with these twin defeats, it has been broken down from a terror state back into a terrorist organization.

The value of ISIS’ former status as a terror state was enormous. Islamic State recruiting pitches were filled with boasts about its prowess as a conqueror of territory, from easily routing the Iraqi military at Mosul to carving a bloody swath across Syria. The Islamic State declared a “caliphate,” or Islamic nation. Its leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was the “caliph.” Other terrorist gangs swore vows of fealty to Baghdadi on that basis. His continued survival is a matter of debate, but if he no longer holds a caliphate, he can hardly claim to be a conquering caliph anymore.

As Al Aan reporter Jenan Moussa pointed out, the Islamic State dreamed of invading Rome at the height of its power.

Again? Students arrested for handing out Constitution

The fight was in the ring in 2011, 2013, 2014 and 2015, and now it’s back – and this time it’s in a courtroom. The Alliance Defending Freedom has filed a lawsuit against Kellogg Community College in Michigan for allegedly arresting three students for handing out copies of the U.S. Constitution.

Hundreds walk out of Stanford classes, demand ‘sanctuary campus’ – SFGate

TRUTH BOMBS: Then they should be fired, failed and replaced just like any other working American who walk out on their job!

ARTICLE: More than 500 Stanford University students, faculty and staff members walked out of classrooms and ducked out of jobs Tuesday in a protest of the policies of Donald Trump, the latest in a wave of Bay Area and national demonstrations against the president-elect. Some of the Stanford dissidents, though, came with a concrete demand for the university’s administrators: investigating the possibility of the South Bay campus serving as a sanctuary against the sort of millions of deportations Trump has said he’ll seek as president. Hundreds of people — students, faculty, staff and other supporters — had as of Tuesday evening signed an open letter addressed to President Marc Tessier-Lavigne and Provost John Etchemendy urging the two leaders to “immediately develop a protocol for making itself a sanctuary campus.” Sanctuary cities, like San Francisco, have formally adopted policies for local law enforcement limiting their cooperation with federal immigration authorities when it comes to deporting individuals just for being undocumented. Emphasizing Stanford’s support for the Dream Act, which would allow undocumented students to attend the school and apply for citizenship if passed by Congress, Lapin added that “this is a time to reaffirm our commitment to free expression, diversity and inclusion.” California passed its own version of the Dream Act in July 2011, granting undocumented students access to private scholarships to attend state schools. In an interview with CBS News’ “60 Minutes” Sunday, Trump said he would deport or arrest two million to three million undocumented immigrants, though adding that he would prioritize those with criminal records.

Articles: Yes, There Is a Coup On in America

TRUTH BOMBS: Great Article! A must read to educate yourself.

ARTICLE:

There’s a great LifeLock ad where four masked bank robbers burst through the door and yell for everyone to get down.  A woman on the floor looks up at a bank guard.  “Do something,” she whispers.

“Oh, I’m not a security guard,” the man says.  “I’m a security monitor.  I only notify people if there’s a robbery.”  He looks over at the armed robbers in stocking masks, holding a hostage.

“There’s a robbery.”

Like the security monitor, Americans are passively observing a robbery, the theft of democracy.  We’re witnessing, in real time, an insurrection, a coup d’état.

The definition of coup d’état is change in government by illegal or forceful means.  Like Hillary Clinton illegally seeking the office of president.

Per 18 USC Ch. 101 field-end:cite : RECORDS AND REPORTS:

(b) Whoever, having the custody of any such record, proceeding, map, book, document, paper, or other thing, willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, falsifies, or destroys the same, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both; and shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States.

So there’s that.

Then there’s the fact that Hillary’s guilty of perjury, destroying evidence, obstruction of justice, and that whole pay-to-play thing.  I know – she hasn’t been charged, much less convicted of those crimes, but that brings me back to my original point.

Hillary wasn’t charged or convicted because the FBI and Department of Justice (DOJ) served as accessories after the fact to cover up her crimes and enable her to avoid prosecution.  The FBI flat-out took a dive.  The Department of Justice (DOJ) tried to be more clandestine, but Bill Clinton’s meet-up with Attorney General Loretta Lynch on the airport tarmac got caught on video.  The meeting might have been to influence Comey but more likely to dot their is and cross their ts on the upcoming non-indictment.

So we have a woman, Hillary Clinton, who should be in jail but is instead cruising to the presidency; a Justice Department that openly assists Hillary in her cover-ups, and a complicit media that hides all these facts from the public.  Evidence of collusion, criminal acts, and cover-ups.  If it looks like a duck, et cetera.

But hey, I’m just a writer, not a freedom fighter.  I can’t stop a coup.  Like the bank monitor in the LifeLock ad, I only notify people if there is a coup.

There’s a coup.

Now, this won’t come as a surprise to most because the insurrection’s not being carried out in the shadows.  It’s in our faces.  Crime, collusion, and banana republic stuff we’ve only heard about are the new norm.

And the conspirators go about their dirty work as though we were not even here, oblivious to the public scrutiny.  Hillary has laughed off questions of a potential indictment since the beginning, sneered at suggestions that her scandal might keep her out of the White House.  Even more frightening than her confidence that she won’t be indicted is her unshakable faith that she’ll be elected.  Hillary’s not concerned about the coming election; she doesn’t campaign or hold press conferences, and she has few rallies.  It’s almost as if she doesn’t really need the votes.

That’s probably a good thing for her, since Hillary proved in the primaries that she can’t get the votes.  She had to cheat to beat Bernie Sanders, a 73-year-old socialist out of a win.  She had to tamp down Bernie supporters’ passion and enthusiasm and force them to accept her stale, depressing message.

The truth is, a large chunk of the Democrat base doesn’t like Hillary.  In fact, many can’t stand her.

So how is she winning?  I mean, that’s all we hear, right?  Hillary’s winning in a landslide, has a monumental lead that can’t be overcome.  Hillary’s shown to be winning because the media is  “with her,” or should I say “with them”?  Our once free press is working hand in hand with usurpers to engage in sedition and open treason; to defeat the Republican nominee, Donald Trump; and to impose a sick, evil woman, a criminal as our new leader.

To accomplish this goal, the press uses wartime psychological operations (psy ops), Soviet-style propaganda, and gaslighting to deceive, confuse, disrupt, and demoralize the enemy (that would be we).

Psyops Techniques:

False flags – staged events where the perpetrator is concealed and another party blamed.

  • The James O’Keefe videos show Democrat operatives bragging on how they stage violent protests at Trump rallies, that they have a national network to cover all locations.  The media are all in to blame Trump, paint him as an angry man who foments violence.

Shock and awe – the method of displaying overwhelming force or impressive technology to intimidate or demoralize an enemy.

  • Think polls, political experts who tell us it’s over, Hillary’s leads are insurmountable, there’s not enough time for Trump to “catch up.”

Propaganda:

  • Includes name-calling, manipulated statistics, and other techniques.  The media’s favorite is the bandwagon effect.  This tactic appeals to people’s desire to be on the winning team (“voters abandoning Donald Trump in droves” and “Hillary’s running away with the election”).

Gaslighting:

This is the left’s most insidious tool, based on deception and false information to make us doubt our own perceptions, our sanity.

  • Media show Trump getting trounced while they withhold more current data.  They dismiss as anecdotal (that’s the new buzzword for meaningless) empirical evidence that points to a Trump landslide – yard signs, bumper stickers, massive crowds, and unprecedented enthusiasm.  Their “experts” tell us the overflow cheering crowds mean nothing, don’t “translate” to votes.
  • And how many times must they tell us there is no voter fraud?  Yet O’Keefe has a video with a Democrat operative explaining how to accomplish mass voter fraud, and there’s mounting evidence to confirm voter fraud on a pandemic scale.

Psychological warfare leaves its victims feeling off balance, filled with self-doubt, isolated, and less likely to fight for our candidate.  This is the damage our media and government inflict on their own people.  The free press we’ve depended on to expose corruption, ensure fair elections, and protect democracy is now part of the corruption, rigging the elections, and defeating democracy.  Our protector turned assassin.

Now the media huddle with the left to plot their end run on democracy.  It’s a sprint to the finish line.  How far will they go?  All the way, folks.  I can see networks calling the race for Hillary even if they know it’s based on fraud.  I can picture Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, President Obama, our entire government and media telling us we must have a peaceful transition, that we can’t question the results under any conditions.  Oh, wait – they’re already doing that.

And now they’re setting up in case of a Trump landslide.  We could get “fake election results” by Russian hackers, they say.  There will be no “peaceful transition of power” if they lose.

We’ve allowed these people to infest our government at the highest levels, to co-opt our national media, and they now hold the keys to the most powerful government on Earth.  They’re not going to just hand those keys over and go quietly into the night.  They’ll fight every inch of the way.

So what can we do to stop it?  There’s only one path to victory for the people: Donald Trump.  He’s the sole reason the cabal is having to fight back.  Any other Republican would have been one of their own, a non-threat.

But Donald Trump is a true outsider, a general leading the revolution.  Trump’s a fighter hanging in there through daily coordinated attacks, slander, and smears.  But Trump needs a landslide in this election, enough votes to overwhelm the fraud, to stymie the media’s phony narrative.  In the primaries, Trump used a boxing analogy, said he couldn’t win by decision because if it was close, they could cheat.  He needed a knockout, and he got it.  In the end, it’s up to the American people to deliver another knockout on November 8.

As for me, I’ve done my part, sounded the alarm.  I can’t actually stop the coup; I’m like the bank monitor in the LifeLock ad.  I only notify people if there’s a coup.

There’s a coup.

2016 election rigged? More so than Watergate

TRUTH BOMBS: Yep Land of the Free…. Home of the Sucker.. And liberals will still keep on believing in their failed ideologies.

 

ARTICLE: Where’s the special prosecutor?

Where are the House and Senate hearings?

Where are Woodward and Bernstein?

Yes, the 2016 election has been corrupted. Fraud has been perpetrated on the American people and the rule of law. The multiple scandals – provable now through prima facie evidence – actually make this political year, from primaries through general campaigns, represent something bigger than Watergate!

Do I exaggerate?

You be the judge.

First of all, let me begin by saying I am old enough to thoroughly understand Watergate. It was the political development that inspired me to enter journalism as my profession. I followed it carefully, meticulously, methodically – from the early newspaper reporting to the resignation of President Richard Nixon.

I can assure those who were not conscious at that time, those not yet born, that what is taking place in 2016 is indeed bigger and more shocking than this mythical scandal of all American political scandals. The only thing missing is any attempt at justice, prosecution of guilty parties, accountability.

There is no special prosecutor. There isn’t even any national discussion about the possibility of naming one.

There are no House and Senate hearings. Instead, many Republicans are denying there is any widespread or systematic attempt at “rigging” the election.

There are, however, some Woodward and Bernstein upstarts exposing what’s going on. That would be James O’Keefe and his compatriots at Project Veritas.

If James O’Keefe wanted to be rich and famous, author of a bestselling book, seeing himself portrayed on the big screen, all he would have to do is switch his focus and point of view. Unfortunately, for this courageous and intrepid young man, he’s taking on a much bigger and more powerful conspiracy than did Woodward and Bernstein.

O’Keefe is the young man who exposed the “dirty tricks” or “black ops” component of the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee for all to see. Without question, in a just world, he would be the runaway choice for the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service.

The trouble is the major media, totally, 100 percent in the pocket of the DNC and Hillary campaign and actually an essential part of the Democrats’ strategy for electoral victory, have no interest in giving O’Keefe’s Project Veritas and its stunning revelations any exposure – none, zip, zilch, nada.

Without question, however, as a Watergate baby, I can tell you what O’Keefe and his intrepid team have exposed is the dark underbelly of fraudulent, corrupt American politics at its worst – meaning business-as-usual Democratic Party politics that puts the biggest political scandal of the 20th century to shame by comparison.

That’s right. I said what O’Keefe uncovered and documented is bigger than Watergate – much bigger. And I say that as a guy who became a journalist because of Watergate.

At the end of the day, Watergate stunned the nation because it demonstrated that the Committee to Re-Elect the President, or CREEP, as it was unfortunately acronymed in 1972, resorted to “dirty tricks” in its efforts on behalf of Richard Nixon. Those responsible for the “dirty tricks” were called “plumbers.” Among other things, they broke into the office of the Democratic National Committee inside the Watergate Hotel.

Thirty-four years after Watergate, we know Nixon was shielded from the plans for the break-ins at the DNC office. Two years later, he was forced to resign for his participation in the cover-up of the black ops perpetrated by his campaign and some of his former staffers. The revelations of the activities in the Washington Post and, later on, nationally televised House and Senate hearings and the work of two special prosecutors led directly to the resignation of the president.

While Hillary Clinton is not the incumbent president in 2016, she is the closest thing possible – Barack Obama’s handpicked successor, his former secretary of state, the candidate he is actively campaigning for, the opponent of a challenger he calls “unfit” for the presidency.

Are the “dirty tricks” of the Hillary campaign, the DNC, the White House and their allied organizations that served as black ops “plumbers” equivalent to the scandals of Watergate?

Even without the benefit of House and Senate hearings, special prosecutors and a press eager to ferret out corruption by one party in a presidential election, what we know about the fraud perpetrated by the Hillary team indeed rivals, in many ways, the seriousness and impact of Watergate.

  • George McGovern and the Democrats never had a chance to win the presidential election of 1972. The biggest question about Watergate was always “why?” Why did the Nixon campaign resort to dirty tricks in a race that was virtually uncontested – with no serious challenger?
  • There is no reason to believe the bugging devices planted in the Watergate headquarters of the DNC had any impact on the outcome of the election.
  • At the end of the day, the Watergate break-in really did amount to a “third-rate burglary.”
  • The voluminous subsequent investigations in the House, Senate and by special prosecutors never turned up evidence of efforts to conduct voter fraud and intimidation of political opponents by the Internal Revenue Service, though there was misappropriation of campaign funds.

By contrast, in 2016, there is overwhelming proof – including dramatic undercover video recordings – of Clinton surrogates boasting about organized voter-fraud campaigns, “dirty tricks” including the successful incitement to violence at her Republican rallies and events, active collusion between Hillary’s “plumbers,” the campaign, the DNC and even the White House, which held daily calls with the rogue operators and meeting with their leader, Robert Creamer – a convicted felon and husband of a sitting Democrat member of Congress from Chicago – an astonishing 342 times and with Obama himself 47 times.

A key source in O’Keefe’s videos, Scott Foval, the national field director of Americans United for Change, was fired after the videos were released, and Democracy Partners head Robert Creamer resigned in a bid to deflate the scandal.

Foval says on the video recording: “It’s a very easy thing for Republicans to say, ‘Well, they’re busing people in.’ … We’ve been busing people in to deal with you f—–‘ a——- for 50 years, and we’re not going to stop now. We’re just going to find a different way to do it.”

For instance, Foval says, personal vehicles for each voter arouse less suspicion than busing in a large number of people from out of state. Foval also discusses planting people at rallies for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. Those chosen are sent to incite violence and are even given scripts and training.

Creamer – who is married to Rep. Jan Schakowsky, D-Ill., is shown on video being asked about circumventing voter registration laws for Hispanics.

Interestingly, a major campaign theme for Hillary Clinton is doing away with all voter identification requirements, which, she suggests, “suppress” the vote.

Ironically, there is even a direct tie-in between Watergate and Watergate 2, which I hereby dub “Hillarygate.” That historical and ironic link would be Hillary Clinton herself.

Few remember, or care to remember, that Hillary Clinton played a significant role in the Watergate scandal. Her role was scandalous itself.

Hillary Clinton, as it turns out, was one of the staff investigators of the House Committee preparing an impeachment case against Richard Nixon, but she was fired by her boss, lifetime Democrat Jerry Zeifman, general counsel and chief of staff, for being a “liar” and “an unethical, dishonest lawyer.” He said Clinton was collaborating with allies of the Kennedys to block revelations of Kennedy-administration activities that made Watergate “look like a day at the beach.” In addition, he said, a brief Hillary wrote for the committee was so fraudulent and ridiculous, she would have been disbarred if she had submitted it to a judge.

Hillary’s brief argued Nixon did not have the right to counsel in an impeachment case because of lack of precedent.

To make that case, Clinton deliberately ignored the then-recent impeachment case of Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas, who was, indeed, allowed to have a lawyer during the impeachment attempt against him in 1970. Zeifman claims Clinton bolstered her fraudulent brief by removing all of the Douglas case files from public access and hiding them in her office, enabling her to argue as if the case never existed.

Not much has changed in the character of Hillary Clinton since then. In fact, her propensity to lie, cheat and steal set the stage of Hillarygate in 2016.
