You will never know what happened . . .

The media is repeating a stream of quotes from FBI Director James Comey from his congressional testimony today.

The media’s talking points including Comey saying that “no president” could order a wiretap and that they found no evidence to support President Trump’s twitter claim that President Obama wiretapped Trump Tower during the election.

What the media has ignored was Comey’s admission that he could not discuss any activity within the FISA court that could approve a request to electronically spy on an American.

FISA which is the abbreviation of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, was enacted in 1978 and allows for collection of information on foreign agents and foreign powers.

Under the administration of George W. Bush, FISA powers were expanded to allow surveillance of any communication that occurs with entities overseas regardless if the conversation includes an American citizen on U.S. soil.

Additionally, FISA Courts grant approval for specific requests and the court is strictly secret.

If you were to read in between the lines of Comey’s testimony, you would find that he can’t rule out any spying on the Trump campaign as he cannot divulge any activity that occurred within the FISA Courts.

Florida resident Gregg Dunay is a proud Trump supporter who attended multiple rallies in the state and even traveled to Washington D.C. to watch Donald Trump’s inauguration.

He never suspected that a simple “Make American Great Again” bumper sticker would land him in the hospital.

But that’s exactly what happened.

When stopped at a traffic light, an African American man, ran across five lanes of traffic to blind side Dunay, after shouting “F—k Trump!”

Police from Kenneth City have released photos of the man and his vehicle, which was parked at a nearby gas station.

Should this be considered a hat crime? Comment below.

James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas ran into something unexpected at a holiday party hosted by a New York State teacher’s union.

At the party was attorney Mitchell Rubinstein who has worked for New York State United Teachers since 1990 according to his LinkedIn profile.

Rubenstein proceeded to tell one of Project Veritas’ undercover agents about his “worst” case ever.

The attorney described in graphic detail how, “20 years ago”, a teacher forced several children to engage in oral sex with him at knifepoint.

The teacher was defended by Rubinstein (at least before the school district) and was able to walk away with no jail time – just a resignation.

O’Keefe has been searching for this teacher for the past year that Rubinstein referred to only as “Mike.”

Yesterday, O’Keefe turned the story over to the public and asked for their help in locating the man.

The group 4Chan, most recently known for locating Shia Labeouf’s “He Will Not Divide Us Flag” (the group used star charts and condensation trails to locate the origin of the flag), took up the call, and within hours, has a possible suspect for “Mike.”

In 1992, the founder of a New York Bridge School was forced to resign after admitting to molesting two boys at his school aged 13 and 15. Eight others accused the man of abuse but those cases never moved forward.

Project Veritas is looking to confirm the relationship between the 1992 case at the Bridge School and the union attorney.

Finding “Mike” will be another blow to the teacher’s unions who appear to put the careers of their union members above any interests of children – even when they’re being sexually abused by their own teachers.

Watch the video above to learn more but be forewarned that it contains very explicit language.

Will T-Rex Tillerson turn over Hillary's emails?

Government watchdog group Judicial Watch, went to court this morning in Washington, D.C. to ask Rex Tillerson’s Department of State to “recover emails of former Secretary of State Hilllary Clinton” and other Department of State employees.

The group had this to say about the hearing:

The hearing will focus on the next steps in light of the recent decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit that required Secretary of State John Kerry (now Secretary Rex Tillerson) to seek the help of the attorney general in recovering additional Hillary Clinton emails.

The Federal Records Act states that an agency head “shall” initiate an action through the Attorney General when he becomes aware of any unlawful removal of agency records. The Obama State Department refused to do this. The Trump State Department apparently intends to do the same. This despite the recent D.C. Circuit ruling that the State Department had not proved it had done enough to recover missing emails and that an enforcement action must be sought unless “no imaginable enforcement action by the Attorney General could lead to recovery of the missing emails.” Neither the State Department nor anyone else has ever contended that all the emails have been returned.

This will be the first hearing since Judge James E. Boasberg granted Kerry’s lawyers motion to dismiss. Judicial Watch then won on appeal and Judge Boasberg reversed the decision on December 27, 2016.

Despite the president’s campaign criticism of Hillary Clinton’s email practices and the protection of her illegal behavior by the Obama administration, the Trump State Department told Judicial Watch this week that it would continue to object to asking the Attorney General to take steps to recover Clinton’s emails.

Judicial Watch has been the top organization pursuing Hillary Clinton’s email scandal and, during the Clinton Administration, filed suit against Bill and Hillary Clinton over numerous others issues including Filegate, Chinagate, Travelgate, etc.

The Clinton Administration was sued over 100 times by Judicial Watch.

Oops! We missed these. Sorry America.

Judicial Watch announced today that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) reported to a U.S. District Court that it located “an additional 6,924 documents of potentially responsive records” relating to a 2015 Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit about the Obama IRS targeting scandal. The FOIA lawsuit at issue sought records about the IRS selection of individuals and organizations for audits based upon applications requesting non-profit tax status filed by Tea Party and other 501(c)(4) tax-exempt organizations (Judicial Watch v. Internal Revenue Service (No. 1:15-cv-00220)).

These newly identified records are presumably not records that were contained in the “Congressional Database,” which the IRS created in 2013 to house records responsive to congressional inquiries into the IRS scandal.

The IRS is unwilling to commit to a timeframe in which the new documents will be made public:

At this time, the Service is unable to provide an estimate regarding when it will complete its review of the potentially responsive documents. The Service will begin producing any non-exempt, responsive documents by March 10, 2017, and, if necessary, continue to produce non-responsive records on a bi-weekly basis.

“The corruption at the IRS is astounding.  Our attorneys knew that there were more records to be searched but the Obama IRS ignored this issue for years,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.  “President Trump needs to clean house at the IRS as quickly as possible.”

In July 2015, Judicial Watch released Obama IRS documents confirming that the agency used donor lists of tax-exempt organizations to target those donors for audits.  The documents also show IRS officials specifically highlighted how the U.S. Chamber of Commerce may come under “high scrutiny” from the IRS.

In September 2014, another Judicial Watch FOIA lawsuit forced the release of documents detailing that the IRS sought, obtained and maintained the names of donors to Tea Party and other conservative groups. IRS officials acknowledged in these documents that “such information was not needed.” The documents also show that the donor names were being used for a “secret research project.”

Get on with it.

Over the last few weeks, stories have streamed across the wires of one illegal immigrant after another being arrested and deported.

The corporate media, which is attempting to create an uproar among sympathetic liberals, are actually doing the opposite.

For once, the corporate media is doing its job and showing the positive work that the Federal Government is finally doing . . . after years of refusing to enforce the law.

For the last eight or so years, President Obama maintained wide-open and welcoming borders and a very generous Welfare State.

How did that work out for us?

Aside from the mountains of money lost to maintaining the health, education and general prosperity for non-citizens who did not legally contribute to our national treasure, we allowed an insurgency to exist within our own land.

We saw this in California when Donald Trump staged a rally there and his supporters were met with violence.

We see it in the students who march on American streets while angrily waving Mexicans flags.

We see it in the tears of 15 year old Nisa Mickens’ mother. Nisa, a high school student, was brutally beaten to death by members of MS-13 gang members from El Salvador and confirmed illegal immigrants.

Obama and the social justice warriors who have cropped up under his presidency, can whine, cry, march, rally, and bitch and moan all they want.

By ignoring immigration laws, we have fostered lawlessness.

While each immigrant who illegally crosses our borders will look into a camera and say “I’m not a criminal,” their very act of crossing our border was a crime.

Let me say this clearly, “They are all criminals.”

So when 22 year-old illegal immigrant Daniela Vargas, a so-called “Dreamer”, holds a press conference to demand change from our president, and is subsequently arrested and deported by Immigration and Customs Enforcement . . . I cheer.

The Trump administration had the courtesy of flying Vargas back to her true home of Argentina when she was entitled, at best, to get an escorted bus ride across the border to Mexico.

The lesbian activist for illegal immigrants can hoof it back to Argentina for all I care.

While deportations for men and women like Vargas are cheered, there are exceptions.

The ten illegal immigrants who killed teenage girls Nisa Mickens and Kayla Cuevas under their gay MS-13 banner . . . well, they’re not going home . . . ever.

If justice is to be truly served for these punks, they should be bound and locked in a room with the families of the slain teenage girls.

It is impossible to sympathize with the plight of illegal immigrants when they are literally killing our children.

Deport them all, and then we can provide a route to entry for those who would benefit our nation and society.

The Feds are pushing drugs . . . again.

The U.S. government’s multi-billion-dollar effort to counter narcotics in Afghanistan is a humiliating failure that’s resulted in a huge increase in poppy cultivation and opium production. Despite the free-flow of American tax dollars to combat the crisis, opium production rose 43% in the Islamic nation, to an estimated 4,800 tons, and approximately 201,000 hectares of land are under poppy cultivation, representing a 10% increase in one year alone.

Uncle Sam’s embarrassing counter narcotics effort is part of a broader and costly failure involving the reconstruction of Afghanistan. More than $100 billion have been dedicated to help rebuild the war-torn country and much of it has been lost to waste, fraud and abuse not to mention corruption. The drug initiative is a recent example, documented by the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) in a quarterly report to Congress. The document is painful to read because it goes on for 269 pages, but Judicial Watch created a link for the counter narcotics section, which is around 19 pages and includes informative charts, graphs and the latest available statistics.

As of December 31, 2016, the United States has spent an astounding $8.5 billion for counter narcotics efforts in Afghanistan since 2002, the report reveals, making it clear that the cash will continue flowing. “Nonetheless, Afghanistan remains the world’s leading producer of opium, providing 80% of the global output over the past decade, according to the United Nations,” SIGAR writes. The watchdog includes statistics from the United Nations Office of Drugs and Crime (UNODC) confirming a 10% increase in the amount of Afghan land that was under poppy cultivation between 2015 and 2016. Despite Uncle Sam’s generosity, poppy eradiation results were the lowest this decade, the watchdog states. “No eradication took place in the biggest opium-growing provinces because of the grave security situation,” the report reveals, noting a steady rise in production and cultivation in the past decade. “Eradication efforts have had minimal impact on the rise in illicit opium cultivation.”

This, of course, translates into a large increase in opium production—43% in a year—the watchdog reveals, to an estimated 4,800 tons. “The reported production increase reflected the larger area under cultivation, higher yields, and lower eradication results.” Part of the problem, U.S. authorities say, is that between 2.5 and 3 million Afghans are drug users and the country lacks sufficient treatment centers to address the growing drug-abuse problem, particularly for women and children. American cash hasn’t put a dent on that problem either. A State Department branch known as the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) doled out $12.9 million in 2015 for drug treatment and education programs in Afghanistan and has allocated millions more despite past failures. INL also funds a scandalous, multi-million-dollar program called Governor-Led Eradication (GLE) that pays provinces for the cost of eradicating poppies. Between 2008 and 2016 INL disbursed $4.6 million, according to the SIGAR.

Afghanistan reconstruction has been a huge debacle that continues fleecing American taxpayers. Judicial Watch has reported on the various boondoggles over the years, most of them documented in tremendous detail by the SIGAR. Highlights include the mysterious disappearance of nearly half a billion dollars in oil destined for the Afghan National Army, a $335 million Afghan power plant that’s seldom used and an $18.5 million renovation for a prison that remains unfinished and unused years after the U.S.-funded work began. Among the more outrageous expenditures are U.S. Army contracts with dozens of companies tied to Al Qaeda and the Taliban. The reconstruction watchdog recommended that the Army immediately cut business ties to the terrorists but the deals continued. Another big waste reported by Judicial Watch a few years ago, involves a $65 million initiative to help Afghan women escape repression. The government admits that, because there’s no accountability, record-keeping or follow-up, it has no clue if the program was effective.

During a weekend of protests after President Trump’s decision to limit travel from known terrorist states, protesters attempted to takeover an airport in Portland Oregon.

As the crowd literally rushed through the airport doors, a lone Trump supporter stood in their way and was immediately knocked out by one of the protesters.

He remained unconscious for minutes after the assault while protesters mocked him by saying, “That’s right Nazi boy, whose your f’ing Fuhrer now, bitch!”

The attack was captured on tape and posted to YouTube.

The U.S. Border Patrol alters statistics involving the apprehension of criminal illegal immigrants to conceal that thousands are being released, a new federal audit reveals. The frontline Homeland Security agency charged with preventing terrorists and weapons—including those of mass destruction—from entering the country also skews figures to drastically deflate the high recidivism rate of aliens caught entering the U.S.

The distressing details of this crucial agency’s crafty record-keeping practices are outlined in a scathing report issued this month by the investigative arm of Congress, the Government Accountability Office (GAO). The probe focuses on a Border Patrol system developed to address a smuggling crisis along the southwest border. It’s officially known as Consequence Delivery System (CDS) and is used to identify the most effective and efficient consequences to deter illegal cross border activity in each of the agency’s sectors. For the system to work, the Border Patrol must report accurate information involving illegal aliens who are apprehended.

Instead, it appears that federal agents on the ground are being ordered to fudge the numbers as part of a broader Obama administration effort to protect illegal immigrants and falsely portray the Mexican border as safe. The GAO report suggests that Border Patrol headquarters directed agents to misclassify criminal illegal aliens, presumably to hide the fact that they were being released instead of prosecuted. Officials interviewed as part of the probe “said that agents received oral direction from headquarters to reclassify criminal aliens who cannot be given a consequence of federal prosecution, and that written data integrity guidance to sectors did not include activities for checking the accuracy of alien classifications,” the GAO report states.

The misclassification of apprehended illegal immigrants resulted in nearly 4,000 criminal aliens being returned to their home country rather than prosecuted between 2013 and 2015, the GAO found. After analyzing Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) data, congressional investigators determined that an astounding 94% (109,080) of the 116,409 aliens given a consequence of warrant or notice to appear still had an open case and “may remain in the United States.” Thousands more escaped criminal prosecution because they were not properly classified. “Specifically, of the approximate 15,000 apprehensions of criminal aliens who were not classified according to CDS guidance between fiscal years 2013 and 2015, 8 percent were recommended for criminal prosecution (3,912 apprehensions) compared to 47 percent of all criminal aliens during that timeframe,” the GAO writes.

In some cases, Department of Justice (DOJ) restrictions limit the number of illegal aliens that can be referred for prosecution, the report says. This leaves agents in a bind and hesitant to apply consequences that require referral to federal partners. Here’s an example: “Rio Grande Valley sector officials said that while agents apprehended over 129,000 aliens in fiscal year 2015, the sector can only refer about 40 immigration-related cases each day to the corresponding USAO District (Southern District of Texas) for prosecution. Once this daily limit is reached, agents must apply an alternative consequence that is not the Most Effective and Efficient as defined by the CDS guide.”

Recidivism numbers are kept down by using an unscrupulous system that only classifies an apprehended illegal alien as recidivist if he or she had been previously caught within a fiscal year. The system doesn’t account for immigrants with no record of removal after apprehension and who may have remained in the United States without the opportunity to recidivate. The Border Patrol guidance also states that a first-time apprehension classification may be used on an alien that has been apprehended by another agency. Congressional investigators determined that the Border Patrol system slashed recidivism numbers in half. In one outrageous case cited in the report an “alien apprehended 54 times in the Rio Grande Valley sector between October 2012 and May 2015 was classified as a First Time Apprehension 6 times.”

The FBI has confirmed what Judicial Watch reported last week, that the Ft. Lauderdale Airport shooter has ties to radical Islam and carried out the attack on behalf of a terrorist group. During a bond hearing in a south Florida federal court this week, an FBI special agent testified that the shooter, Esteban Santiago, communicated with Islamic terrorists in “jihadi chat rooms” and committed the massacre on behalf of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

Santiago killed five people and wounded six others during the bloody rampage in the baggage claim area of the Ft. Lauderdale Airport earlier this month. Authorities immediately attributed the attack to mental illness, saying that Santiago was a Hispanic Army veteran that became unhinged after a tour in Iraq. Santiago has been charged with an act of violence at an international airport, which could get him a death sentence. According to the federal complaint, Santiago fired 10 to 15 rounds of ammunition from his firearm, aiming at his victims’ heads and walking while shooting in a methodical manner. At this week’s bond hearing, FBI special agent Michael Ferlazzo testified that Santiago said he was fighting for ISIS and had been in touch with other terrorists who were planning attacks in jihadi internet chat rooms. The judge ruled that Santiago be held without bond and his next court appearance is scheduled for January 30.

Last week Judicial Watch ignited a ruckus after revealing that Santiago is a Muslim convert who years before joining the U.S. Army took on an Islamic name (Aashiq Hammad), downloaded terrorist propaganda and recorded Islamic religious music online. The Obama administration’s efforts to keep the pertinent information quiet in the aftermath of the shooting brought up memories of the Benghazi cover up, in which the president and his cohorts knowingly lied to conceal that Islamic terrorists attacked the U.S. Special Mission in Libya. In the Ft. Lauderdale attack the traditional mainstream media coverage promoted the government rhetoric that omitted any ties to terrorism even though early on a photo surfaced of Santiago making an ISIS salute while wearing a keffiyeh, a Palestinian Arab scarf.

Records uncovered in the days after the massacre suggest Santiago (Hammad) is a radical Islamic terrorist that’s seriously committed to Islam. Besides taking on a Muslim name, he recorded three Islamic religious songs, including the Muslim declaration faith (“there is no God but Allah and Muhammad is his messenger”) known as the Shahada. He also posted a thread about downloading propaganda videos from Islamic terrorists on a weapons and explosives forum. The investigative news site that unearthed this disturbing information connected the dots between Santiago, who is of Puerto Rican descent, and Hammad, an identity he created in 2007.

It’s still not clear why Santiago chose Ft. Lauderdale, out of all the nation’s airports, to carry out his attack. The facility is situated in Broward County, which has a large and growing Islamic community and questions remain involving who Santiago knows in the area. In 2015 Judicial Watch obtained records from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) that show an Al Qaeda terrorist who helped plan several U.S. attacks lived in Broward County and graduated from the local community college with a degree in computer engineering. His name is Adnan G. El Shukrijumah, but he also has a Hispanic identity, Javier Robles, and for years he appeared on the FBI’s most wanted list. Back in 2012 Judicial Watch reported on a terrorist front group’s demands that Broward County public schools close twice a year to celebrate Islamic holy days, illustrating the influence that Muslims have in the region.
