 Clinton cronies at State DOUBLED the inflow 
of Muslim migrants after 9th Circuit ruling
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:
WASHINGTON, D.C. – The State Department is in open revolt against the White House and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, inviting President Donald Trump to clean house.
For many Americans, Trump, made famous for his “You’re Fired” approach to his “Apprentice” reality TV show, has just been given a once-in-a-lifetime repeat performance of that line now that he is president.
Those federal employees feeling secure that civil service rules assure them permanent State Department employment in DC despite their open opposition to Trump’s foreign policies might be well advised to start thinking twice about how well they could adapt to a presidential reassignment to a remote outpost in Alaska, or at the southernmost tip of the United States in Texas, along the Mexican border.

This week a State Department “dissent channel” memo surfaced, objecting to President Trump’s Executive Order issued Jan. 27, temporarily suspending travel for 90 days from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen. By Friday over 1,000 State Department employees had put their signatures to the resistance statement.
“A policy which closes our doors to over 200 million legitimate travelers in the hopes of preventing a small number of travelers who intend to harm Americans from using the visa system to enter the US will not achieve its aim of making our country safer,” the State Department dissent memo reads, in language that clearly asserts the bureaucrats in the State Department have a superior lock on foreign policy wisdom than does the president.
Given Trump’s history as a highly successful multi-billionaire CEO, dissenting State Department employees are making a dangerous bet expressing their opinion that they know better than their boss.
The New York Times reported that the State Department currently has 7,600 Foreign Service officers and 11,000 civil servants. This means some 5% (the 1,000 signing the dissent memorandum) of current State Department employees are in open revolt against the newly-inaugurated Chief Executive of the US.
The State Department’s open revolt invites Secretary Tillerson to put under scrutiny for discipline, reassignment, and/or outright dismissal the 1,000 employees signing the dissent memo.
This, plus the “mass exodus” of top State Department policy and management officials that resigned in response to Trump’s election and his selection of Tillerson to be secretary of state, gives President Trump and Secretary Tillerson an extraordinary opportunity to “clean house” with a decision to fire for insubordination all State Department policy officials that signed the dissent memorandum expressing their open disdain for the border security objectives central to Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.
The depth of the State Department revolt is not fully appreciated until we examine the extent to which leftist State Department officials went to flood into the US a disproportionately large number of refugees from the seven terror-supporting countries specified in the Trump executive order – acting almost as if it were the State Department’s job to get as many refugees into the Untied States as possible from these seven terror-supporting countries before the window closed.
The Washington Times has reported the State Dept. has more than doubled the refugee inflow from the seven terror-prone nations since U.S. District Court Judge James Robart in Seattle imposed a temporary restraining order on the enforcement of President Trump’s executive order imposing the temporary travel ban.
“A staggering 77 percent of the 1,100 refugees let in since Judge James L. Robart’s Feb. 3 order have been from the seven suspect countries. Nearly a third are from Syria alone — a country that President Trump has ordered be banned altogether from the refugee program,” the Washington Times noted. “Another 21 percent are from Iraq. By contrast, in the two weeks before Judge Robart’s order, just 9 percent of refugees were from Syria and 6 percent were from Iraq.”
But the State Department open rebellion against President Trump does not stop there.
The argued that a CNN report on Thursday claiming the Russians were trying to influence the election in France so as to insure a win for anti-globalist Marine Le Pen, president of the National Front – a strong opponent of the European Union with a Trump-like “France First” message.
“In essence, CNN -and by extension the progressive State Department officials remaining within the shadow deep state construct- is trying to influence the French Presidential Race,” the story stressed.  “Blaming the Russians in advance is an attempt to weaken Marine Le Pen.”
The article went on to comment only difference between November 2016 and today is that this time CNN is attempting to get out ahead of an election rather than inventing the back-story “the Russians did it” to explain why Hillary Clinton lost an election her leftist supporters presumed she had won from the moment she declared her candidacy for president.
Predictably, Twitter on Friday morning in the aftermath of the Ninth Circuit’s Court of Appeals decision to leave Judge Robart’s decision in place has nothing about the issue trending, despite numerous tweets being posted by Americans angry at the appellate court’s decision and demanding that President Trump clean house at the State Department.


 New Katy Perry Song Encourages Anti-Trump Riots
 Pop culture re-brands civil unrest 
to cash in on divided America
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:
The lyrics to a new Katy Perry song timed to coincide with her re-branding as an anti-Trump “activist” includes a line that openly encourages her fans to riot.
Released earlier today, the pop star’s Chained to the Rhythm track features lyrics by reggae singer Skip Marley that include the lines, “We’re stumbling, we’re crumbling, and we’re about to riot / They woke up, they woke up the lions.”
Elsewhere, the lyrics make reference to “liars” and the “empire,” clearly placing it in a political context.
“Even though Skip is the one who seems to slyly diss the President, many drew attention to how it’s still Katy’s song, and how her lyrics could also be related to the current political climate,” reports Hollywood Life.
Perry, who now considers herself an “activist” according to her Twitter bio (no doubt a genuine lifestyle choice and not just an avaricious form of virtue signaling to make more money), endorsed Hillary Clinton multiple times and headlined a concert in her honor back in November.
Following Donald Trump’s victory, she took to Twitter to call for a “revolution,” asking people to “rise up”.
As part of her new role as the Che Guevara of pop music, Perry also attended last month’s anti-Trump “women’s march” in DC.
After releasing her new song, Perry proclaimed the new era of “purposeful pop”.
Fans reacted to Perry’s new song by thanking her for taking on Trump.
“The anthem for our revolution!” wrote one.
“Katy Perry’s #ChainedToTheRhythm is the 1st major pop release that feels influenced by Trump era,” added another.
It is rumored that Perry will perform the new song during an appearance at the Grammys this Sunday.
Other anti-Trump pop stars have also jumped on the bandwagon in recent weeks. During the “women’s march,” which was organized by a supporter of sharia law, Madonna gave a speech in which she said she had “thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House”.

While it’s unlikely that Perry’s fans are likely to organize a mass riot any time soon, her new song highlights how popular culture is re-branding civil unrest as a trendy form of virtue signaling in order to cash in on the deep political divisions that plague America.
There have been numerous riots since Trump won the presidency, including immediately after the election, at the inauguration, more violent unrest in response to his travel ban policy, as well as the shocking scenes at Berkeley last week when attendees of a Milo Yiannopoulos event were pepper sprayed and beaten by Antifa thugs.
While the dominant culture desperately tries to portray itself as the anti-establishment counter-culture, the only real counter-culture is the new brand of conservatism that helped sweep Trump to victory in the first place.

"The two boys, aged between 10 and 12, were ordered to execute the captives in front of their families…lads refused and were punished for failing to follow orders from the caliphate."
Children do not escape the cruelty of Islamic State jihadists. Some horrific examples (which may be disturbing to some people):
  • A one-year-old Yazidi baby was beaten in front of his mother until she gave in to all of the Islamic State jihadi’s sex demands.
  • A baby was blown up as part of an Islamic State explosive training exercise.
  • 74 children were executed by the Islamic State for “crimes” that included refusal to fast.
  • Children are also being raped, tortured, beheaded, crucified and buried alive.

“ISIS sickos chop off kids’ HANDS for ‘refusing to execute prisoners'”, By Tom Rawle, Daily Star, February 3, 2017:
The two boys, aged between 10 and 12, were ordered to execute the captives in front of their families.
Yet the lads refused and were punished for failing to follow orders from the caliphate.
A source told Al-Sumaria news in Iraq: “The Islamic State’s leaders issued orders to train a group of children on fighting in the group’s camps in Nables neighborhood, in the western side of Nineveh.
“Meanwhile, members of the Islamic State terrorist group amputated the hands of two children, for refusing to carry out the execution sentence on two civilians in front of their families.”
Public amputations are common in ISIS-run settlements.
Sickening images and video have emerged in recent months showing hundreds gathering around to see such spectacles.
The horrifying news comes days after ISIS’ chief executioner was killed by mystery death squads in the city of Mosul.
Abu Sayyaf is said to have butchered more than 100 captives.
Yet security sources have now confirmed the brutal killer had been stabbed to death by the squad of assassins…..

Those are among the regular prayers being recited at Al Andalous Islamic Center in Montreal by Imam Sayed AlGhitawi. He also pleaded with “Allah to support the mujahideen (Muslims who engage in jihad) in Palestine and to inflict total destruction on the Jews.”
There are others like him who are being permitted in Canada to spread messages of violence and conquest, while Canada is pushing through another anti-Islamophobia motion in Parliament that takes aim at free speech, specifically at any criticism of Islam. ACT for Canada published an important report on the motions, including our coverage at Jihad Watch; see here.
AlGhitawi’s statements are not singular. In August, Mazin AbdulAdhim, a prominent imam of Iraqi descent in London, Ontario, “encouraged Muslims to wake up from the illusion that the Western governments represent them, to disavow democracy, to follow the true teachings of Islam, and to work together for re-establishing the Islamic State – the Caliphate.”
Dr. Abdullah Hakim Quick, who “served as a special advisor to the Toronto Board of Education,” stated that “in Islam gays should be executed” and that “homosexuality goes with Zionism.”
Last February, the Alberta Islamic Welfare Association hosted Syrian refugees and their families at a get-together with members of the Edmonton Muslim community and Imam Shaban Sherif Mady of a Muslim congregation in Edmonton. During prayer with the refugees, Imam Mady prayed
O Allah! Strengthen the mujahideen [jihad fighters in the path of Allah] everywhere, make their hearts firm and strong, let them hit their targets, give them victory over their enemies.
Some years ago, Toronto area Imam Said Rageah at the Abu Huraira Centre called on Allah to “destroy the enemies of Islam from within” and he called upon God to “damn the infidels.”
It has also been found that “Islamic schools, mosques in Canada are filled with extremist literature.”

“Quebec Imam prays for the annihilation of the Jews”, by Jonathan Halevi, CIJ News, February 8, 2017:
At the end of his sermons at Al Andalous Islamic Center in Montreal, Quebec Imam Sayed AlGhitawi (سيد الغتاوي) recited supplications to Allah to support the mujahideen (Muslims who engage in jihad) in Palestine and to inflict total destruction on the Jews….
The following are excerpts from Sayed AlGhitawi’s supplications in 2014:
O Allah, give victory to our brothers who engage in Jihad for Your sake in everywhere, O Lord of the Worlds
O Allah, give victory to our brothers who engage in Jihad in Palestine
O Allah, connect to their hearts
O Allah, make their feet firm
O Allah, make their feet firm
O Allah, give them victory over their enemy
O Allah, destroy the accursed Jews
O Allah, show us the black day you inflict on them
O Allah, show us the wonders of your power and ability inflicted on them, O the most Merciful
O Allah, show us how you do to them what you did to [the peoples] of ʿĀd and Thamud [ancient peoples that perished by Allah because they didn’t heed the warnings of the prophets]
O Allah, show us how you do them what you did to [the people] of ʿĀd and Thamud
O Allah, rain down on them rain of stones made of Sigil stones, O Lord of the Worlds
O Allah, rain down on them rain of stones made of Sigil stones, O the most Merciful
O Allah, make their children orphans and their women widows…
O Allah, give victory to our brothers who engage in Jihad in Palestine, O Lord of the Worlds…
O Allah, destroy the accursed Jews
O Allah, show us the black day you inflict on them
O Allah, show us the wonders of your power and ability inflicted on them, O the most Merciful
Shook the ground beneath their feet
O Allah, kill them one by one
O Lord, don’t leave any of them [alive]

“Europe is on the road to war,” according to European Commission first vice-president Frans Timmermans, who has declaraed that citizens have to “fight against the ‘politics of paranoia’ and the ‘disruptive forces of xenophobia, intolerance and illiberalism.’”
He goes on:
EUROPE must not repeat the mistakes of its violent and bloody past by embracing populism and nationalism as a ‘breath of fresh air.’
In other words, as he disregards the current global realities of Islamic supremacism and jihad, Timmermans is accusing every European victim of jihad attacks and the rampant sex attacks and surging crimes committed by Muslim migrants of paranoia. He’s also indirectly accusing the persecuted Church and infidels of other religious minorities, and even the 11 million Muslims murdered by their coreligionists since 1948, of paranoia. He grossly underestimates the global jihad threat, the biggest threat to human rights and peace today. The nation of Israel is also victimized by jihad terror, so perhaps it, too, can be accused by Timmermans of “nationalism” and “paranoia.” Let’s not forget the victims of 9/11 on the list of the paranoid, in Timmermans’ bizarre reasoning, along with many others victims of jihad attack. Timmermans also completely ignores Islamic history as he slams Brexit, Trump and Europe’s own history.
The Timmermans of the world, and there are many, call on Europe and the entire West to surrender to Islamic supremacists and jihadists so as to avoid labels of paranoia, xenophobia and intolerance.
The only threat of destruction Europe faces is in living in its past, seeing all nationalism through the prism of World War II’s malignant nationalism, and forgetting the fine efforts of those (of every race and religion) who fought for human rights and democratic rule. That includes my own Chinese grandfather, who fought for the Brits in Trinidad in World War I.

“‘Europe is on ROAD TO WAR’ EU boss in shocking attack on Brexit and rising nationalism”, by Simon Osborne, Express, February 10, 2017:
European Commission first vice-president Frans Timmermans said citizens had to fight against the ‘politics of paranoia’ and the ‘disruptive forces of xenophobia, intolerance and illiberalism’.
And he said Brexit and the Donald Trump’s shock rise to power in the US should set alarm bells ringing across the West.
In a keynote speech to the Future Force Conference he said the European Union was not just Brussels but an eco-system of many different languages, cultures and traditions.
He said: “Europe is a union of unlikely allies. If you think nationalism is a welcome breath of fresh air, think again: It is the road to war.
“French and Germans, Dutch and Belgians, Danes and Swedes, French and English, Hungarians and Romanians, Bulgarians and Greeks all fought each other on the bloody timeline of European history.
“Three generations of French and German young men had slaughtered each other in three wars within living memory.
“But history can surprise us. Sometimes for the better. Twelve years later, 60 years ago next month, these two countries signed the Treaty of Rome, along with four other European nations. From arch enemies, to best buddies. They founded the most successful peace project in human history.”
Mr Timmermans warned recent political upheavals threatened to jeopardise the hard-earned peace across the block.
He said: “Right here, on our own doorstep, our fundamental values are under threat.
“In Europe, we see the return of the politics of paranoia. Fuelled by alternative facts in Internet echo chambers, the disruptive forces of xenophobia, intolerance, il-liberalism and nationalism and are on the march.
“New parties are peddling old, dangerous ideas.
“Brexit, Turkey, Poland, Hungary and even in the Western Balkans we see the return of fault lines in Europe. Not an iron curtain of machine guns and minefields, but a barrier of the mind, between inclusion and exclusion, between open and closed societies.”
Mr Timmermans accused Russia of trying to challenge the European order and feared President Vladimir Putin had too much power.
He told the conference: “We see hybrid warfare, now in Ukraine. Will the Baltic states be next? We see the return of the menace of nuclear war. Russia has less checks and balances than the Soviet Union had. President Putin enjoys more unrestrained power, than Nikita Khrushchev ever did…..

Yesterday, President Trump met with the National Sheriff’s Association at the White House.  Like so many Trump comments, this one took a strange turn when Trump (jokingly or not) threatened to “destroy the career” of a Texas state Senator:
During the meeting, Rockwall County, Texas, Sheriff Harold Eavenson told President Trump about a piece of asset forfeiture legislation he believes would aid Mexican drug cartels…here’s the full conversation:
Eavenson:  “There’s a state senator in Texas that was talking about legislation to require conviction before we could receive that forfeiture money.”
Trump:  “Do you believe that?”
Eavenson:  “And I told him that the cartel would build a monument to him in Mexico if he could get that legislation passed.”
Trump:  “Who is that state senator? I want to hear his name. We’ll destroy his career…”
Though the major point of conversation was about Trump’s threat to a state legislator, the bigger story should be the implicit support Trump gave to civil asset forfeiture, whether he realized it or not.  And if you are not aware what civil asset forfeiture is, it is (surprisingly) something that is agreed by both sides of the aisle to be unjust and unconstitutional, and rightfully so.
Civil asset forfeiture is defined by Wikipedia as “a controversial legal process in which law enforcement officers take assets from persons suspected of involvement with crime or illegal activity without necessarily charging the owners with wrongdoing.”  The practice is commonplace in the war on drugs, but it can be extended to almost anything.
What it means is that the government can essentially seize any of your assets it can find (be it in a bank account, or cash/gold/whatever you have in a safe or under the mattress), label them a part of a “criminal investigation,” and keep them indefinitely, without sufficient due process for the citizen to challenge the seizures, and whether you are ultimately charged with a crime or not.
Martin Armstrong of Armstrong Economics explains how police have every reason to seize assets, largely because these civil asset forfeitures are literally funding police departments:
Between 1989 and 2010, U.S. attorneys seized an estimated $12.6 billion in asset forfeiture cases. The growth rate during that time averaged +19.4% annually. In 2010 alone, the value of assets seized grew by +52.8% from 2009 and was six times greater than the total for 1989. Then by 2014, that number had ballooned to roughly $4.5 billion for the year, making this 35% of the entire number of assets collected from 1989 to 2010 in a single year. According to the FBI, the total amount of goods stolen by criminals in 2014 burglary offenses suffered an estimated $3.9 billion in property losses. This means that the police are now taking more assets than the criminals.
The police have been violating the laws to confiscate assets all over the country. A scathing report on California warns of pervasive abuse by police to rob the people without proving that any crime occurred. Even Eric Holder came out in January suggesting reform because of the widespread abuse of the civil asset forfeiture laws by police.
Bloomberg News has reported now that Stop-and-Seize authority is turning the Police Into Self-Funding Gangs. They are simply confiscating money all under the abuse of this civil asset forfeiture where they do not have to prove you did anything.
Prosecutors are now instructing police on how to confiscate money within the grey area of the law.
A class action lawsuit was filed against Washington DC where police were robbing people for as little as having $100 in their pocket.  This is getting really out of hand and it has indeed converted police into legal criminals or “gangs” as Bloomberg News calls them.
And Mike Krieger of Liberty Blitzkreig even cites the Huffington Post, of all places, which detailed the case of two bakers who did not commit any crime, but had their assets (and lives) ruined by the IRS, because they were able to legally seize the business’s assets by just believing that they may have been engaging in criminal activity, with absolutely no evidence to support their claim:
But the IRS refused to believe Vocatura’s Bakery was operating on the up and up. Agents said the business raised red flags because of a series of cash deposits in sums under $10,000, the amount at which banks are required to report transactions to the federal government. They said this behavior was consistent with a crime known as structuring, which the IRS defines as making calculated financial transactions in order to skirt reporting requirements. The agents had no evidence of other wrongdoing, but thanks to a controversial law enforcement tool known as civil asset forfeiture, they didn’t need any to seize every penny in the Vocaturas’ bank account: $68,382.22.
Under the practice of civil forfeiture, authorities can move to permanently take property they suspect of being linked to criminal activity, without obtaining a conviction — and, in cases like the Vocaturas’, without even charging the owner with a crime.
For the past three years, the brothers have been fighting to get their money back, maintaining they’d done nothing wrong. The IRS has responded by subjecting David, 53, and his brother Larry, 69, to a series of increasingly aggressive legal maneuvers — including threats of significant prison time and additional fines — in an attempt to strong-arm them into permanently forfeiting their assets.
Hours after the suit was filed, the IRS said it would finally give the Vocaturas their money back. But the prosecutor didn’t drop the case. Instead, he now plans to mount an expansive investigation into the bakery’s finances, looking for a reason to bring criminal charges against the brothers.
It was just the latest twist in a protracted legal battle that has called into question some of the government’s favorite — and most problematic —methods of taking people’s money.
The practice is just as bad as it sounds – with the original intent being to stop big time drug dealers from recouping their assets, the practice has devolved into police and agencies of all types funding their departments by stealing the assets of civilians, whether they were obtained criminally or not.  This is also not a partisan trend, and as Michael Armstrong indicated above, the practice has been steadily increasing, across all administrations, since it was first implemented in the early 1980s.

All in the same, this makes Trump’s support of the policy quite disturbing.  Mother Jones, of all places, sums up what it all means, and whether or not Trump actually supports the policy (or even realized the significance of it):
My guess is that he has no idea what civil asset forfeiture is and has no real opinion about it. If, say, Trump had been in a meeting with a few senators, and Bob Goodlatte had remarked that “police can seize your money even if you weren’t convicted of a crime,” Trump probably would have reflexively answered, “Can you believe that?” Instead, a sheriff said it was a bad thing related to Mexicans, so Trump automatically agreed with him. That means it’s now official Trump administration policy.
Obviously, the Sheriffs who met with Trump support the policy – it helps fund their departments.  Perhaps Trump was merely supporting lawmen and trying to unify everyone behind his stated policy of “law and order” by agreeing with them in words, and doing something different in practice.  Surely, we would all like to believe that Trump is prepared to concede that every citizen is innocent until proven guilty, and should have recourse to challenge the legality of any seizure of personal assets.
However, I’m not naive enough to think that is a certainty.  Trump very well could have realized exactly what he was doing and the policy he was supporting, and the ramifications behind his support.  He could actually believe the practice helps stop crime, and be ready to willingly disregard the rights of citizens to do so.  It is an extremely dangerous position to take; one that the Trump administration should clarify as soon as possible.
The average American citizen ends up being the big loser in the ongoing saga of oppressive conduct by the authorities, as the practice is unlikely to end without intervention via legislation and/or executive action.   So, while it would be nice if the media would ask the Trump administration for some clarity on their policy regarding civil asset forfeiture, they seem too preoccupied with asking Trump if he really wants to end a state Senator’s career, in their ongoing quest to boost their own ratings.
It would be funny, if it weren’t so sad.
