In an article titled, ‘Open Letter to John Piper on White Evangelicalism and Multiethnic Relations,’ the author, Raymond Chang, uses a term I’d not heard before. ‘White evangelicalism.’ According to Chang, white evangelicalism is “a segment of modern evangelicalism that is led and shaped by a cultural agenda defined by whiteness.”
I have to wonder if the author is reflecting a reality in predomininatly white churches, or, by planting inflamatory terms in our subconscious wants us to start looking askance at such churches with newer and darker questions.
The piece goes on to discuss issues around Lecrae and John Piper.
The reason I’m motivated by Chang’s piece is because I see evangelicals of all backgrounds moving away from the Bible on the topic of race relations. That is one reason I wrote an article titled, “7 Reasons Secular Answers Fail to Address Racism.” That piece was noticed and, as a result, I was invited to appear on a radio program based out of Charlottesville, Virginia, a site of great racial conflict around Civil War monuments.
What truly concerns me is that this subject has great potential to divide people, especially when pastors and academics like Chang, seek to combat racial divisions using divisive language. It reminds me of the day I heard former President Obama say, “We’re not going to embrace the politics of division” as he sought to divide the nation.
This, however, is the refractory position of non-biblical thought relative to all issues. Cut loose from the foundation of God’s Word, we always become the very thing we say we hate. The result has been an erosion of biblical values in the churches. As a friend intuitively noted, “Identity politcs has morphed into identity salvation.”
I don’t have all the answers. But I know this. The Bible and the gospel do.
Finally, Chang contends in his open letter to John Piper that divisions between multiethnic groups within the Church are not theological at their core, but are cultural. Really? No, the fact is that divisions of any kind within the Body of Christ are intensely biblical and theological. The problem is that some people don’t know their theology.

‘THEY HATE TRUMP LIKE THE PLAGUE’: NYT CONTRACTOR REVEALS ANTI-TRUMP BIAS
‘They’re like f*ck Trump, f*ck Trump…yeah, they all hate him,’ says contractor
Oct 23, 2017
Project Veritas has released more undercover video as part of their American Pravda investigation showing an IT Consultant for the New York Times confessing to the anti-Trump bias pervading their company culture.
The IT contractor, Todd Gordon, who has worked for The New York Times for twenty years, explains that hatred for Trump is a sentiment shared by virtually every employee at the newspaper.
PV Journalist: “Have you ever had anybody in New York Times’ office come up to you and say, I actually enjoy Trump?”
Todd Gordon: “No, no, no.”
PV Journalist: “Really?”
Todd Gordon: “Not one person.”
PV Journalist: “Not one person?”
Todd Gordon: “Not one, not one. Everyone hates him. They hate him like the plague dude.”
The video continues with Gordon explaining that the NYT is aware that the Russia ‘scandal’ was “all hearsay” but intentionally put out the dubious information anyway.
Todd Gordon: “Right, it’s all been here-say. Maybe he did this, maybe he did that. You’re right, 100%. They haven’t been able to prove it.”
PV Journalist: “But 100%, that’s how I feel like Times…”
Todd Gordon: “You’re right.”
PV Journalist: “…has covered this, right?”
Todd Gordon: “Yeah, 100% you’re right. It’s all heresay.”
PV Journalist: “You’re in the office all the time, so you get to see it firsthand.”
Todd Gordon: “Yeah, heresay, it’s all heresay. And they’re like grab that heresay and let’s put it out there.”
Gordon added that it’s impossible for the NYT to be unbiased with Trump due to their almost obsessive dislike for him.
“I’m like, ‘Beautiful day, today.’ And they’re like, ‘As good as it could be, fuck Trump,’” Gordon said.
“Everywhere I go, everywhere I go they’re like ‘as good as it could be, but we’re fucked.’”
This is Part IV of Project Veritas’ American Pravda investigation exposing The New York Times’ blatant anti-Trump bias.
Andrew Surabian, senior adviser to the Great America Alliance spoke with Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Raheem Kassam on Monday regarding Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s claim that Steve Bannon and others are “specialists in nominating people that lose.”
Surabian blasted McConnell as “the opposite of a fighter,” adding, “that’s why he hasn’t been able to pass any of the Trump agenda through the Senate. So, that’s number one.”
He continued, “No Senate candidate across the country wants to be associated with Mitch McConnell. Then you have to ask the question, why do these candidates not want to be publicly associated with Mitch McConnell and the reason is because they all know Mitch McConnell is an albatross on their campaigns in the primaries and in the general election.”
Mitch McConnell is the most disliked national political figure in the country,” said Surabian. He then went on to point out a number of McConnell’s handpicked candidates who have lost elections in recent years.
“No one has higher disapproval ratings than Mitch McConnell, so these candidates and their consultants and their pollsters understand that it’s much better for them to be associated with Donald Trump and Steve Bannon than it is to be associated with an albatross like Mitch McConnell.”
“We’re witnessing the meltdown of the McConnell industrial complex,” concluded Surabian.

Not only the Clintons are implicated in a uranium deal with the Russians that compromised national-security interests.
Let’s put the Uranium One scandal in perspective: The cool half-million bucks the Putin regime funneled to Bill Clinton was five times the amount it spent on those Facebook ads — the ones the media-Democrat complex ludicrously suggests swung the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump. The Facebook-ad buy, which started in June 2015 — before Donald Trump entered the race — was more left-wing agitprop (ads pushing hysteria on racism, immigration, guns, etc.) than electioneering.
The Clintons’ own long-time political strategist Mark Penn estimates that just $6,500 went to actual electioneering. (You read that right: 65 hundred dollars.)
By contrast, the staggering $500,000 payday from a Kremlin-tied Russian bank for a single speech was part of a multi-million-dollar influence-peddling scheme to enrich the former president and his wife, then–secretary of state Hillary Clinton. At the time, Russia was plotting — successfully — to secure U.S. government approval for its acquisition of Uranium One, and with it, tens of billions of dollars in U.S. uranium reserves.
Here’s the kicker: The Uranium One scandal is not only, or even principally, a Clinton scandal.
The Obama administration, with Secretary Clinton at the forefront but hardly alone, was knowingly compromising American national-security interests. The administration green-lighted the transfer of control over one-fifth of American uranium-mining capacity to Russia, a hostile regime — and specifically to Russia’s state-controlled nuclear-energy conglomerate, Rosatom.
Worse, at the time the administration approved the transfer, it knew that Rosatom’s American subsidiary was engaged in a lucrative racketeering enterprise that had already committed felony extortion, fraud, and money-laundering offenses.
The Obama administration also knew that congressional Republicans were trying to stop the transfer.
Consequently, the Justice Department concealed what it knew. DOJ allowed the racketeering enterprise to continue compromising the American uranium industry rather than commencing a prosecution that would have scotched the transfer.
Prosecutors waited four years before quietly pleading the case out for a song, in violation of Justice Department charging guidelines. Meanwhile, the administration stonewalled Congress, reportedly threatening an informant who wanted to go public. Obama’s ‘Reset’ To understand what happened here, we need to go back to the beginning. The first-tier military arsenal of Putin’s Russia belies its status as a third-rate economic power. For well over a decade, the regime has thus sought to develop and exploit its capacity as a nuclear-energy producer. Naïvely viewing Russia as a “strategic partner” rather than a malevolent competitor, the Bush administration made a nuclear-cooperation agreement with the Kremlin in May 2008. That blunder, however, was tabled before Congress could consider it. That is because Russia, being Russia, invaded Georgia.
In 2009, notwithstanding this aggression (which continues to this day with Russia’s occupation of Abkhazia and South Ossetia), President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton signaled the new administration’s determination to “reset” relations with Moscow. In this reset, renewed cooperation and commerce in nuclear energy would be central.
There had been such cooperation and commerce since the Soviet Union imploded. In 1992, the administration of President George H. W. Bush agreed with the nascent Russian federation that U.S. nuclear providers would be permitted to purchase uranium from Russia’s disassembled nuclear warheads (after it had been down-blended from its highly enriched weapons-grade level).
The Russian commercial agent responsible for the sale and transportation of this uranium to the U.S. is the Kremlin-controlled company “Tenex” (formally, JSC Techsnabexport). Tenex is a subsidiary of Rosatom. Tenex (and by extension, Rosatom) have an American arm called “Tenam USA.” Tenam is based in Bethesda, Md. Around the time President Obama came to power, the Russian official in charge of Tenam was Vadim Mikerin. The Obama administration reportedly issued a visa for Mikerin in 2010, but a racketeering investigation led by the FBI determined that he was already operating here in 2009.
The Racketeering Scheme As Tenam’s general director, Mikerin was responsible for arranging and managing Rosatom/Tenex’s contracts with American uranium purchasers. This gave him tremendous leverage over the U.S. companies. With the assistance of several confederates, Mikerin used this leverage to extort and defraud the U.S. contractors into paying inflated prices for uranium.
They then laundered the proceeds through shell companies and secret bank accounts in Latvia, Cyprus, Switzerland, and the Seychelle Islands — though sometimes transactions were handled in cash, with the skim divided into envelopes stuffed with thousands of dollars in cash. The inflated payments served two purposes: They enriched Kremlin-connected energy officials in the U.S. and in Russia to the tune of millions of dollars; and they compromised the American companies that paid the bribes, rendering players in U.S. nuclear energy — a sector critical to national security — vulnerable to blackmail by Moscow.
But Mikerin had a problem.
To further the Kremlin’s push for nuclear-energy expansion, he had been seeking to retain a lobbyist — from whom he planned to extort kickbacks, just as he did with the U.S. energy companies. With the help of an associate connected to Russian organized-crime groups, Mikerin found his lobbyist. The man’s name has not been disclosed, but we know he is now represented by Victoria Toensing, a well-respected Washington lawyer, formerly a federal prosecutor and counsel to the Senate Intelligence Committee.
When Mikerin solicited him in 2009, the lobbyist was uncomfortable, worried that the proposal would land him on the wrong side of the law. So he contacted the FBI and revealed what he knew.
From then on, the Bureau and Justice Department permitted him to participate in the Russian racketeering scheme as a “confidential source” — and he is thus known as “CS-1” in affidavits the government, years later, presented to federal court in order to obtain search and arrest warrants. At the time this unidentified man became an informant, the FBI was led by director Robert Mueller, who is now the special counsel investigating whether Trump colluded with Russia.
The investigation was centered in Maryland (Tenam’s home base). There, the U.S. attorney was Obama appointee Rod Rosenstein — now President Trump’s deputy attorney general, and the man who appointed Mueller as special counsel to investigate Trump.
Because of CS-1, the FBI was able to understand and monitor the racketeering enterprise almost from the start.
By mid-May 2010, it could already prove the scheme and three separate extortionate payments Mikerin had squeezed out of the informant. Equally important: According to reporting by John Solomon and Alison Spann in the Hill, the informant learned through conversations with Mikerin and others that Russian nuclear officials were trying to ingratiate themselves with the Clintons.
There is no doubt that this extraordinarily gainful ingratiation took place. I outlined some of it a year ago in suggesting that the Justice Department should be investigating the Clinton Foundation, and its exploitation of Hillary Clinton’s influence as secretary of state, as a potential racketeering case.
In 2005, former President Clinton helped his Canadian billionaire friend and benefactor, Frank Giustra, obtain coveted uranium-mining rights from Kazakhstan’s dictator. The Kazakh deal enabled Giustra’s company (Ur-Asia Energy) to merge into Uranium One (a South African company), a $3.5 billion windfall. Giustra and his partners thereafter contributed tens of millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation. Besides the valuable Kazakh reserves, Uranium One also controlled about a fifth of the uranium stock in the United States. Alas, Putin, the neighborhood bully, also wanted the Kazakh uranium. He leaned on Kazakhstan’s dictator, who promptly arrested the official responsible for selling the uranium-mining rights to Giustra’s company.
This put Uranium One’s stake in jeopardy of being seized by the Kazakh government. As Uranium One’s stock plunged, its panicked executives turned to the State Department, where their friend Hillary Clinton was now in charge. State sprung into action, convening emergency meetings with the Kazakh regime. A few days later, it was announced that the crisis was resolved (translation: the shakedown was complete).
Russia’s energy giant, Rosatom, would purchase 17 percent of Uranium One, and the Kazakh threat would disappear — and with it, the threat to the value of the Clinton donors’ holdings.
For Putin, though, that was just a start. He didn’t want a minority stake in Uranium One, he wanted control of the uranium.
For that, Rosatom would need a controlling interest in Uranium One. That would be a tall order — not because of the Kazakh mining rights but because acquisition of Uranium One’s American reserves required U.S. government approval. Uranium is foundational to nuclear power and thus to American national security. As the New York Times explained in a report on the disturbing interplay between the Clinton Foundation and the transfer of American uranium assets to Russia, the United States gets a fifth of its electrical power from nuclear energy, but only produces a fifth of the uranium it needs.
Consequently, a foreign entity would not be able to acquire rights to American uranium without the approval of the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States. CFIUS is composed of the leaders of 14 U.S. government agencies involved in national security and commerce. In 2010, these included not only Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who had cultivated a reputation as a hawk opposed to such foreign purchases, but Attorney General Eric Holder, whose Justice Department (and its lead agency, the FBI) were conducting the investigation of Rosatom’s ongoing U.S. racketeering, extortion, and money-laundering scheme.
In March 2010, to push the Obama “reset” agenda, Secretary Clinton traveled to Russia, where she met with Putin and Dimitri Medvedev, who was then keeping the president’s chair warm for Putin.
Soon after, it emerged that Renaissance Capital, a regime-tied Russian bank, had offered Bill Clinton $500,000 to make a single speech— far more than the former president’s usual haul in what would become one of his biggest paydays ever.
Renaissance was an aggressive promoter of Rosatom. The Clinton speech took place in Moscow in June.
The exorbitant speech fee, it is worth noting, is a pittance compared with the $145 million Newsweek reports was donated to the Clinton Foundation by sources linked to the Uranium One deal.
The month before the speech, the Hill reports, Bill Clinton told his wife’s State Department that he wanted to meet while in Russia with Arkady Dvorkovich, who, in addition to being a top Medvedev aide, was also a key Rosatom board member. It is not known whether the State Department gave clearance for the meeting; the question appears to have become moot since the former U.S. president met directly with Putin and Medvedev.
You’ll be comforted, I’m sure, to learn that aides to the Clintons, those pillars of integrity, assure us that the topics of Rosatom and Uranium One never came up.
Keeping Congress in the Dark Meanwhile, congressional opposition to Russia’s potential acquisition of American uranium resources began to stir. As Peter Schweizer noted in his essential book, Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich, four senior House members steeped in national-security issues — Peter King (R., N.Y.), Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R., Fla.), Spencer Bachus (R., Ala.), and Howard McKeon (R. Calif.) — voiced grave concerns, pointing out that Rosatom had helped Iran, America’s sworn enemy, build its Bushehr nuclear reactor. The members concluded that “the take-over of essential US nuclear resources by a government-owned Russian agency . . . would not advance the national security interests of the United States.” Republican senator John Barrasso objected to Kremlin control of uranium assets in his state of Wyoming, warning of Russia’s “disturbing record of supporting nuclear programs in countries that are openly hostile to the United States, specifically Iran and Venezuela.”
The House began moving a bill “expressing disfavor of the Congress” regarding Obama’s revival of the nuclear-cooperation agreement Bush had abandoned.
Clearly, in this atmosphere, disclosure of the racketeering enterprise that Rosatom’s American subsidiary was, at that very moment, carrying out would have been the death knell of the asset transfer to Russia. It would also likely have ended the “reset” initiative in which Obama and Clinton were deeply invested — an agenda that contemplated Kremlin-friendly deals on nuclear-arms control and accommodation of the nuclear program of Russia’s ally, Iran. That was not going to be allowed to happen.
It appears that no disclosure of Russia’s racketeering and strong-arming was made to CFIUS or to Congress — not by Secretary Clinton, not by Attorney General Holder, and certainly not by President Obama. In October 2010, CFIUS gave its blessing to Rosatom’s acquisition of Uranium One.
A Sweetheart Plea Helps the Case Disappear Even though the FBI had an informant collecting damning information, and had a prosecutable case against Mikerin by early 2010, the extortion racket against American energy companies was permitted to continue into the summer of 2014. It was only then that, finally, Mikerin and his confederates were arrested. Why then? This is not rocket science. In March 2014, Russia annexed Crimea. Putin also began massing forces on the Ukrainian border, coordinating and conducting attacks, ultimately taking control of territory. Clearly, the pie-in-the-sky Obama reset was dead.
Furthermore, the prosecution of Mikerin’s racketeering scheme had been so delayed that the Justice Department risked losing the ability to charge the 2009 felonies because of the five-year statute of limitations on most federal crimes.
Still, a lid needed to be kept on the case. It would have made for an epic Obama administration scandal, and a body blow to Hillary Clinton’s presidential hopes, if in the midst of Russia’s 2014 aggression, public attention had been drawn to the failure, four years earlier, to prosecute a national-security case in order to protect Russia’s takeover of U.S. nuclear assets.
The Obama administration needed to make this case go away — without a public trial if at all possible. Think about this: The investigation of Russian racketeering in the American energy sector was the kind of spectacular success over which the FBI and Justice Department typically do a bells-n-whistles victory lap — the big self-congratulatory press conference followed by the media-intensive prosecutions . . . and, of course, more press conferences.
Here . . . crickets.
As the Hill reports, the Justice Department and FBI had little to say when Mikerin and his co-conspirators were arrested. They quietly negotiated guilty pleas that were announced with no fanfare just before Labor Day. It was arranged that Mikerin would be sentenced just before Christmas. All under the radar. How desperate was the Obama Justice Department to plead the case out? Here, Rosenstein and Holder will have some explaining to do. Mikerin was arrested on a complaint describing a racketeering scheme that stretched back to 2004 and included extortion, fraud, and money laundering. Yet he was permitted to plead guilty to a single count of money-laundering conspiracy. Except it was not really money-laundering conspiracy. Under federal law, that crime (at section 1956 of the penal code) carries a penalty of up to 20 years’ imprisonment — not only for conspiracy but for each act of money laundering.
But Mikerin was not made to plead guilty to this charge. He was permitted to plead guilty to an offense charged under the catch-all federal conspiracy provision (section 371) that criminalizes agreements to commit any crime against the United States. Section 371 prescribes a sentence of zero to five years’ imprisonment. The Justice Department instructs prosecutors that when Congress has given a federal offense its own conspiracy provision with a heightened punishment (as it has for money laundering, racketeering, narcotics trafficking, and other serious crimes), they may not charge a section 371 conspiracy. Section 371 is for less serious conspiracy cases. Using it for money laundering — which caps the sentence way below Congress’s intent for that behavior — subverts federal law and signals to the court that the prosecutor does not regard the offense as major.
Yet, that is exactly what Rosenstein’s office did, in a plea agreement his prosecutors co-signed with attorneys from the Justice Department’s Fraud Section. (See in the Hill’s report, the third document embedded at the bottom, titled “Mikerin Plea Deal.”) No RICO, no extortion, no fraud — and the plea agreement is careful not to mention any of the extortions in 2009 and 2010, before CFIUS approved Rosatom’s acquisition of U.S. uranium stock. Mikerin just had to plead guilty to a nominal “money laundering” conspiracy charge. This insulated him from a real money-laundering sentence. Thus, he got a term of just four years’ incarceration for a major national-security crime — which, of course, is why he took the plea deal and waived his right to appeal, sparing the Obama administration a full public airing of the facts.
Interestingly, as the plea agreement shows, the Obama DOJ’s Fraud Section was then run by Andrew Weissmann, who is now one of the top prosecutors in Robert Mueller’s ongoing special-counsel investigation of suspected Trump collusion with Russia.
There was still one other problem to tamp down. That was the informant — the lobbyist who alerted the FBI to the Russian racketeering enterprise back in 2009. He wanted to talk.
Specifically, as his attorney, Ms. Toensing, explains, the informant wanted to tell Congress what he knows — about what the FBI and the Justice Department could already have proved in 2010 when CFIUS signed off on Russia’s acquisition of American nuclear material, and about what he’d learned of Russian efforts to curry favor with Bill and Hillary Clinton.
But he was not allowed to talk. It turns out, the lawyer explains, that the FBI had induced him to sign a non-disclosure agreement. The Justice Department warned him that it was enforceable — even against disclosures to Congress. (Because, you know, the FBI is opposed to all leaks and disclosures of confidential investigative information . . . except those initiated by the FBI, of course.) In addition, when the informant was primed to file a federal civil lawsuit to recover his own losses from the scheme, he claims that the Justice Department threatened him with prosecution, warning that a lawsuit would violate the non-disclosure agreement.
The Hill reports that it has obtained emails from a civil lawyer retained by the witness, which describe pressure exerted by the Justice Department to silence the informant. What a coincidence: That was in 2016, the stretch run of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.
Dan Gainor: Media Obsessed with Trump Russia Conspiracy Ignoring Clinton Uranium One
23 Oct 2017 by Dan Riehl 23 Oct 2017
Media Research Center Vice President of Business and Culture Dan Gainor joined Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Raheem Kassam on Monday to discuss the media’s refusal to touch the Hillary Clinton Uranium One story and other topics.
Gainor praised the Hill for breaking the story on the Clintons while pointing out that most establishment media outlets do not want to cover it.
“The major media didn’t want to cover it,” said Gainor. “In fact, yesterday on Face the Nation, John Dickerson was one of the first major media people on CBS, ABC, or NBC to even discuss it. That’s five days after the Hill had the story.”
Gainor added, “The media has spent endless hours promoting this Russia connection for Trump that they’ve never been able to prove. They’ve been talking about it since October of last year. And here you’ve got new allegations actually tying Hillary Clinton to something, and they don’t want to cover it at all.”
He went on to point out the need for more conservative journalism to combat the significant imbalance as compared to the left.

Ben Shapiro: Obama Admin Knew About Bribery in Russian Nuclear Deals!
The team that colluded with Hillary to collude with RUSSIA and cover her butt with Mueller in the center. Ironically laughable, Mueller investigating Trump’s relationship with Russia, his relationship prior to becoming POTUS; he (Mueller) colluded with and protected Hillary’s treasonous activity with Russia while Secretary of State. She was Secretary of State, not a uranium saleswoman. These hypocrites are more interested in ridding Trump, but desperate to protect Hillary and OBAMA! These are swamp monsters. Kill the swamp monsters (expose and indict); the swamp gets drained much quicker. There is more behind this than we may ever know………Soros smells like he could be near by.
What the New York Times and the Washington Post both correctly report is that in a friendly phone call with president Donald Trump, I made the case for the release of 3100 still classified government files that address the assassination of Pres. John F. Kennedy.
A 1994 law scheduled the release of the last batch of JFK assassination-related records for October 26 of this year. Under the act, only the president can delay the release for an additional 25 years.
The president, who was cheerful, upbeat and confident, is fully engaged in his effort to pass his tax reform package so he can turbocharge the economy. He listened politely to my pitch for transparency in the release of these files mandated by the US Congress in 1994. He asked a few pointed questions and told me he would review the matter. I was optimistic.
Only days previously I had been joined by my fellow New York Times best-selling author Gerald Posner, whose book Case Closed supports the deep flawed Warren Commission conclusion that Lee Harvey Oswald killed John F. Kennedy and acted alone. My book The Man Who Killed Kennedy – The Case Against LBJ destroys the official narrative as it lays out how Vice President Lyndon Johnson, with the assistance of the Central Intelligence Agency, the mob and Big Texas Oil, orchestrated the murder of our 37th President.
We know that Lyndon Johnson’s “strong right arm” Bobby Baker, the Secretary of the Senate, told a Kennedy associate “John Kennedy will not live out his term and will die a violent death” during a freezing cold Inauguration Day blizzard in 1961.
We learned a great deal from the first tranche of documents that were declassified under the JFK Assassination Records Act of 1994 about the role of Lyndon Johnson in the events of November 22, 19, 3 as well as the actions of the CIA, major organized crime figures and even George H. W. Bush.
The documents released thus far under the Congressional act include a memo from FBI director J. Edgar Hoover to Pres. Johnson informing him that the KGB conducted their own independent investigation into the Kennedy assassination and concluded that LBJ was the mastermind. We also learned that French intelligence had informed Jacqueline Kennedy that Lyndon Johnson was the linchpin in the conspiracy which led to her husband’s death.
We discovered that in December of 1963, J. Edgar Hoover, then FBI Director, ordered the head of the FBI office in Dallas to “brief George Bush of the CIA regarding the activities of anti-Castro Cubans in the Dallas area,” which is curious because George Bush would testify under oath at his 1970s U.S. Senate confirmation hearings to be the Director of Central Intelligence that he never worked for the CIA prior to his appointment.
The documents already released under the process President Trump completed last week also revealed the record of a phone call placed by George H.W. Bush to the head of the FBI office in Houston only minutes after the Dallas shooting in which Bush went out of his way to establish an alibi claiming to be in Tyler, Texas, for a luncheon speech. He even urged the FBI to look into an active Young Republican in Harris County, James Parott, who Bush claimed he heard had threatened the president. When the FBI arrived at Parott’s home the bewildered young man was found in the back-yard painting “Bush for U.S. Senate” signs.
My White House sources told me that CIA director Mike Pompeo opposed the release of the classified JFK assassination material by President Trump. Now, the game of the Deep State boys will be to undermine the president’s order by redacting and withholding much of the material the president has ordered released. It is notable that the first tranche of documents released by the National Archives in July were so redacted and had so much material withheld on the basis of “national security” that they were worthless.
I will report to the American people if there is an effort to nullify the President’s bold decision through bureaucratic blackouts and blanket claims of “national security.”
It’s not surprising that they would try this ploy. The CIA has never been forthright about its ties to Lee Harvey Oswald and neither has the FBI. They both have much to hide.
Oswald appears to have been recruited by the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) as a Marine recruit. Oswald missed qualifying in 1958, which means he was on a special assignment, almost certainly learning Russian at the military language school in Monterey, California.
Oswald was stationed at our most secure base at Atsugi, Japan, from which the U-2 overflights were being launched, which would not have happened had there been any question of his loyalty.
While there, Oswald contracted gonorrhea, which was noted in his military service record as having occurred in the line of duty. (Some assignment!)
The Soviets knew the U-2 flights were taking place, but not the altitude at which they were flying and were unable to shoot them down. Oswald made a pseudo-defection at the behest of the CIA, even faking suicide to gain their attention. As a radar operator in Japan, he knew the altitudes and (presumably) provided that information to the Soviets.
Shortly before a planned summit between Eisenhower and Khrushchev, the Red leader accused the U.S. of spying on the Soviet Union, which Eisenhower denied. Khrushchev then produced the pilot, Francis Gary Powers, and parts of the plane, which led to the cancellation of the summit, increasing Cold War tensions instead of diminishing them.
Oswald, who had loudly defected, suddenly returned to the United States with the travel expenses for him and his wife paid for by the U.S. government, and despite the fact that Oswald had renounced his U.S. citizenship, it had never been formally revoked.
Returning to the U.S. with his new wife, the niece of a KGB colonel, he was greeted by a CIA-front organization and given money to relocate, where Marina landed in Dallas and Lee in New Orleans, where he was “sheep-dipped” (given a false persona) as a pro-Castro, communist sympathizer.
It is beyond dispute that Oswald was arrested in New Orleans handing out anti-Castro literature which is strange for a man who is described to us as an active communist. Once arrested Oswald placed his one allowed phone call to the head of the FBI bureau in New Orleans and was shortly thereafter released.
Without Oswald knowing he was being set up as the patsy, Ruth Paine, who had ties to the CIA, arranged for Oswald to obtain a position at the Texas School Book Depository just weeks before the motorcade.
At the time he was shot, he was working as informant #179 for the FBI and was being paid $200 per month right up to the time of the assassination.
That proof Oswald was working for the FBI as an informant was uncovered by Waggoner Carr, the Attorney General of Texas at the time. Carr, a conservative Democrat who had been a “Democrat for Nixon” in 1960 where he was aligned with Texas Democratic Governor Allen Shivers, who openly endorsed Nixon after Kennedy wrestled the Democratic nomination from LBJ. Nixon told me of Carr’s finding regarding Oswald.
That led to an emergency meeting of the Warren Commission, which delegated LBJ associate Leon Jaworski to investigate the claim. He would report that it was only a “false rumor” when it was actually true.
Which explains why the accused assassin of our 35th president’s W-2 forms were unavailable — until the CIA was able to fabricate replacements, which is one of its areas of specialization, i.e., the manufacturing of false documents.
The next dump of classified JFK documents included records from the most mysterious part of Oswald’s pre-assassination history, his alleged trip to Mexico City where he reportedly appeared at the Russian and Cuban Embassy demanding asylum and a visa. We have an actual recording of a phone conversation between FBI director Hoover and President Johnson in which Hoover tells the President that the man photographed and described in Mexico City does not look remotely like Oswald.
Philip Shenon, who has written a book about the assassination, said: “From the record we already have, we know he met there with Soviet spies and Cuban spies and other people who might have wanted to see Kennedy dead.” No, actually we only know a man claiming to be Oswald appeared in Mexico City.
We also know from the last release of JFK files that the Dallas police reported to the FBI that they had multiple calls from several air charter services at Love Field reporting that a man identified who himself as Lee Harvey Oswald had appeared and inquired about the availability of a chartered plane from Dallas to Mexico on November 22, 1963. In every case, the charter company employees shown a picture of Oswald insisted it was not the man who has visited their facility to inquire about charter service.
Regardless, a man claiming to be Oswald in Mexico City or inquiring about chartering a flight we are supposed to believe would be destined for Mexico but hijacked to Cuba would mean Oswald had a confederate thus a conspiracy took place.
Contents of the last batch of classified files pertaining to the murder oh Pres. John Fitzgerald Kennedy will be fascinating unless the mandarins in Langley withhold the truth from the American people yet again.
Dateline Bruxelles, Belgium, Europe – 2016: What makes an identity traceable in the practical histories of events is the character of dynamic, acting entities. We are looking for something unchanging pulling through a multitude of variable conditions and outcomes. With the typical course or process and its functional rule, “character ” must be understood as that which remains in principle constant in the working-out of life; where there is no such constant we speak of “lack of character.” It is character — the form in virtue of which a moving existence can combine the highest constancy in the essential with the maximum variability in the details — that makes telling biography possible at all. When we look at the Left or at Islam, we look for the character, for constancy, for that which remains identifiable and unchanging under a multitude of versatile conditions.
In the article below a trait in the character of modern Islam emerges – the critical mass of demographic pressure that Muslim immigration infuses into the Western countries. A simple rule emerges therefrom: to wit – wherever there are more Muslims there is more terror. It’s that simple because the brutality of Islam is that simple.
Can you identify all the character traits of Islam?
EUROPE, ISLAMISM AND SOME UNCOMFORTABLE HOME TRUTHS
The flags are at half-mast in Westminster in a show of solidarity with Brussels, one of those ceremonies Europe seems to be getting used to. We’re long used to the statements of shock by politicians (why the shock?) as well as the platitudes about this having nothing to do with any particular religion. After that we have the now traditional focus of all our anger and grief towards Katie Hopkins [a British media pundit with controversial statemenrts about Muslims], as if what she says or believes makes any difference to the growing problem facing Europe.
Not all of Europe, of course. Central Europe, chiefly Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic, remain largely safe from the terror threat, despite the former in particular being a Nato player in the Middle East. It is precisely because the reasons for this are so obvious that they cannot be mentioned. Poland is 0.1 percent Muslim, most of whom are from a long-settled Tartar community, Britain is 5 percent, France 9 percent and Brussels 25 percent, and those numbers are growing.
For all the goodwill shown by the vast majority of people in Europe, Muslim and non-Muslim, and for all those things that shouldn’t have to be said – that most Muslims hate this monstrosity – these statistics correlate to terrorism risk. That’s not something people want to hear when they have a desperate urge to feel solidarity, but it is true nonetheless. It may well be that as the Muslim population increases in any European country, the radicalisation risk grows exponentially, since such extremism thrives on ghettoisation and isolation.Neither the French policy of integration nor the British model of multiculturalism can stop this. There is no sign of Islamism disappearing anytime soon. These problems will not go away. It is simply a facet of the multi-ethnic society we now inhabit.
After Paris I wrote:
Radical Islamism thrives in the absence of other identities, which is why it is especially prevalent among second-generation immigrants, who are more likely to feel alienated and torn between cultures. This alienation, which is reflected in statistics on mental illness among the children of migrants, is the flipside of what Salman Rushdie called the world of the “cultural mestizo” found in the arts; to the especially talented this provides the sort of confusion and nuance that might produce great novels or films but to others it brings great stress and confusion.
Religion provides the comfort of certainty, something politicians have failed to see because they have assumed that particular Western values are universal or inevitable, when they are actually quite unusual and fragile; this was reflected in Barack Obama’s statement that the Paris atrocities were an attack on “universal values”.
Added to this we have another serious problem, the growing absence of jobs for lower-skilled men, an explosive mixture in a Europe that has in many of its cities groups of men united by a universalistic religion with an ambivalent attitude to violence [at best!].
Central Europeans have become the new target for liberal snobbery in the past couple of years, their antediluvian attitudes to Islamic migration making them the new hillbillies; low-status whites it’s okay to mock on account of their views. But looking at what is happening in Brussels, London and Paris, is it not rather rational for them to look at Merkel’s open-borders policy and the whole multicultural thing with some scepticism? I suspect those flags will be back at half mast soon enough.
There is no Islamic terrorism without Islam. As Islam expands, so does Islamic terrorism.
World War III has begun, and again, it starts in Europe, specifically France. It’s the continuation of millennium of jihadi wars and Islamic imperialism. What’s different this time is that the media, academic and cultural elites dare not speak of the enemy ideology (or the enemy for that matter) and viciously attack anyone who dares speak of it.
France is in the middle of a civil war. The civil war is based on religious differences. As the religious divide between the Islamic colonists and the militantly secular French government increases, the violence will worsen. The outcome of the war will determine whether France will be a secular republic or an Islamic state. The Jihadists have a plan for winning the war. The French authorities don’t.
Interior Minister Gerard Collomb made it official. France is “in a state of war”.
It’s not just rhetoric. Bombs turn up in a posh Parisian suburb. Two young women are butchered at a train station. And it’s just another week of an Islamic World War III being fought in France.
From the November attacks in 2015 that killed 130 people and wounded another 400+, to the Bastille Day truck ramming attack last year that killed 86 and wounded 458, the war is real.
French casualties in France are worse than in Afghanistan. The French lost 70 people to Islamic terrorist attacks in Afghanistan. And 239 to Islamic terrorist attacks in France.
The French losses in Afghanistan were suffered in over a decade of deployment in one of the most dangerous Islamic areas in the world. The French losses in France were suffered in less than two years.
There’s something very wrong when Afghanistan is safer than Paris.
10,000 French soldiers were deployed in the streets of their own country in Operation Sentinelle after the Charlie Hebdo – Kosher supermarket attacks in 2015. Thousands of French soldiers are still patrolling, guarding and shooting in French cities which have become more dangerous than Afghanistan.
Operation Sentinelle has deployed twice as many French soldiers to France as to Afghanistan. And French casualties in the Islamic war at home have been far higher that they were in Afghanistan.
When the French intervened to stop the Islamist takeover of Mali, they suffered a handful of losses. The 4,000 French soldiers came away from Operation Serval with 9 casualties and Operation Barkhane amounted to 5 dead. The Gulf War? Another 9 dead. It’s a lot safer to be a French soldier fighting Al Qaeda in a Muslim country than a Parisian civilian going to a concert in his or her own city.
French casualties in the struggle with Islamic terror in just the last two years are approaching the 300 casualties of the Korean War.
France is at war. That’s why there are soldiers in the streets.
Its new anti-terrorism bill creates a permanent state of emergency. Suspected extremists can be placed under “administrative detention” in their own homes and neighborhoods under police surveillance and remote monitoring.
Pop-up checkpoints can appear in public spaces that are designated as “security zones” where anyone can be stopped and searched. Mosques can be shut down for six months. Public gatherings can be banned. Warrantless searches can be conducted within miles of potential targets.
The Interior Ministry will have police state powers. And it will be able to wield quite a few of them without having to go through the formality of asking judges nicely for permission.
Some of these measures should be familiar. France is the new Israel.
France’s Interior Minister called the anti-terrorism bill, a “lasting response to a lasting threat”. The choice of words recognizes that Islamic terrorism is here to stay.
The “State of War” is permanent. And France has no plans for winning the war. Instead it’s trying to get better at playing defense. And that’s what most Western domestic counterterrorism efforts amount to.
France is just taking the lead because it has the biggest problem.
The British put soldiers on the streets after the Manchester Arena bombing. The Italians and the Belgians began deploying soldiers in cities around the same time that the French did.
When an illegal alien Muslim terrorist due to be deported murdered two young women in Marseille while shouting, “Allahu Akbar”, French soldiers opened fire. The 24-year-old who shot the terrorist was a reserve member of a regiment of combat engineers in the French Foreign Legion.
The French Foreign Legion isn’t off fighting in a foreign desert somewhere. It’s fighting in France.
French soldiers are told to loudly announce, “Stop or I Shoot”. And then open fire. And that’s what he did. And French soldiers are being forced to learn the phrase and expect to come under attack.
In February, French soldiers were attacked by a Muslim terrorist outside the Louvre. The Egyptian Jihadist shouted, “Allahu Akbar” and came after them with a machete. One soldier from the 1st Régiment de Chasseurs Parachutistes was wounded. The attacker was shot down.
The 1st Régiment de Chasseurs Parachutistes had been deployed to Afghanistan and Mali. Now they were at the Louvre. You don’t need to be Napoleon to know that counts as a major retreat.
A month later, a Muslim terrorist shouted “I am here to die in the name of Allah” while holding a female air force soldier hostage at Orly Airport.
He got his wish courtesy of her fellow soldiers.
In August, six soldiers from the 35th Infantry Regiment were hit by a BMW driven by a Muslim terrorist. Members of a regiment which had been deployed in Afghanistan were sent to a military hospital after an attack in the wealthy Levallois-Perret suburb of Paris. A year earlier, soldiers from the 5th Infantry Regiment had been hit by a Tunisian shouting, “Allahu Akbar” while they were guarding a mosque.
France has entered its longest state of emergency since the Algerian War. The 2015 attacks saw its first state of emergency since 1961. But where is France supposed to withdraw from this time? Paris?
It was one thing to abandon the beleaguered Algerian Christians and Jews to Muslim terror. And to abandon them a second time when they fled to France only to face persecution by their old Islamic neighbors who had tagged along and settled down in Marseille. But can France abandon the French?
The issue once again is colonialism. But the new colonists are Algerians, Tunisians and other Islamic imperialists who have settled in France and wave the black flag of the Jihad over their no-go zone settlements in French cities. And they have made it abundantly clear that they will not stop there.
Last year, former Prime Minister Manuel Valls said that, “Every day attacks are foiled… as we speak.”
And it’s no wonder. Thousands of Muslim settlers left France to fight in Syria and Iraq. Valls was looking at 15,000 potential threats domestically. France has one of the largest Muslim populations in Europe. We don’t know exactly how many millions of Muslim settlers live in France. But we can measure their growth by the expansion of the terror threat. Islamic terrorism is, despite the spin, reducible to Islam.
There is no Islamic terrorism without Islam. As Islam expands, so does Islamic terrorism.
France is in the middle of a civil war. The civil war is based on religious differences. As the religious divide between the Islamic colonists and the militantly secular French government increases, the violence will worsen. The outcome of the war will determine whether France will be a secular republic or an Islamic state. The Jihadists have a plan for winning the war. The French authorities don’t.
And what goes for France also goes for Western Europe. And for the West.
The French combination of social appeasement and police state enforcement isn’t working. The same model ultimately fails wherever it’s applied. Breaking up terror cells and stopping attacks is far better than the alternative, but the scale of the problem will always continue increasing because of demographic growth and a globalized terror infrastructure.
Demographics dictate that France’s terror problem will only keep growing. And the French authorities understand this. That’s why its governments increasingly talk about Islamic terrorism as a lasting threat.
Our War on Terror has squandered endless blood and treasure while avoiding the root cause. Western nations deploy massive armies to root out small terror networks while allying with their Gulf backers. Soldiers patrol major cities waiting for a terrorist or several terrorists to attack. Meanwhile the mosques that indoctrinate them to hate and kill non-Muslims are also protected by those same soldiers.
That’s not how you win a war. It’s how you lose everything.
I followed the money and the reasons why land was being taken in Harney Cnium One https://losingamericanland.coounty Oregon. This is why Dwight Hammond (age 74) is sitting in a federal prison. Initially the sentence for Dwight (Father) was 3 months in prison and Steven (son) was 12 months in federal prison. Both were also stipulated to pay $400,000 to the BLM. The judge said “that sentence is too short”. Sometime in June 2014, Rhonda Karges, Field Manager for the BLM, and her husband Chad Karges, Refuge Manager for the Malheur Wildlife Refuge (which surrounds the Hammond ranch), along with attorney Frank Papagni exemplified further vindictive behavior by filing an appeal with the 9th District Federal Court seeking Dwight’s and Steven’s return to federal prison for the entire 5 years. The Hammonds serve their original sentences and to date they have paid $200,000 to the BLM, and the remainder $200,000 must be paid before the end of year (2015). If the Hammonds cannot pay the fines to the BLM, they will be forced to sell the ranch to the BLM or face further prosecution. (Coercion to sell their ranch , I think so).See the history of Dwight and Steven Hammond: http://www.prcforum.com/forum/157-political-discussions/69473-history-behind-hammond-ranch-blm.html
Incidentally the Hammond Ranch is surrounded by the Malheur Wildlife Refuge.
The out cry resulted in a take over of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge and the murder of a man who had not even a parking ticket on his record. Yes murder is a harsh way to put the killing of a man by the FBI.
The reasons why this happened goes deeper than the take-over of the wildlife refuge.
The Uranium One deal had already been done and the project to start mining the Uranium was being held up by one rancher who would not sell his land to the federal government. Making it look like the reasons for doing all the land buying was the save the grouse campaign. When in fact it was a Uranium deal negotiated by the Federal government. Go to the mitigation plan and the environmental impact statement to see how much land is needed.
The UN mandate to take the land for ecology purposes were also a front for acquiring the land in order to get at one of the bigger uranium deposits in the US. Incidentally there are large deposits of gold also.
I discovered this during the Burns Oregon standoff January 2016. The mitigation of such a project usually takes large parcels of land to satisfy the UN mandates on ecology and wildlife. A mitigation plan does not actually take into account human lives that will be affected and they (the feds, the UN, government officials involved) do anything to force a sale of needed property. The facade of a payment looks good to the populous but the price is never a fair market value of the land. As a matter of fact all kinds of very interesting things happen to a persons land that is targeted by the BLM. Sudden devastating flooding, enormous fires, limited access, new regulations and even threats of jail time if you don’t obey an implied regulation and or policy. If a biologist has identified a possible, endangered species on your land, you will be fined and or arrested for endangering the said species.
The devastation of flooding to a rancher is “Not only can you not grow your winter feed but it kills all of your perennial grasses” This can mean sure financial hardship.
A simplest solution has been sought — a canal to drain the water from the closed basin into the Snake River — But when the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers determined the project’s benefit-to-cost ratio was too low http://www.disasternews.net/news/article.php?articleid=742 Theres the Army Corps of engineers in their infinite wisdom rearing their ugly head. Lets see where else have we heard them doing untoward things to people —mmmm oh yes the flooding in New Orleans after Katrina, They conveniently did not fix the dyke—- That’s right! They had the money but just didn’t fix it!https://wordpress.com/post/losingamericanland.com/383
During the 1970’s the Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS), in conjunction with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), took a different approach to get the ranchers to sell. Ranchers were told that, “grazing was detrimental to wildlife and must be reduced”. 32 out of 53 permits were revoked and many ranchers were forced sell. Grazing fees were raised significantly for those that did not sell. Refuge personnel(BLM) took over the irrigation system claiming it as their own.
Human life on a ranch is a hard life but it is a life that people choose.
If a person looks at what is going on within a 50 mile radius of the Hammond Ranch, the devastation that took place is appalling. Ranches were being bought up by the federal government. Call it BLM or some other agency working to complete a mitigation plan for the preparation to start a mining or multiple mining projects.
Ultimately the injustice of the whole project has hit the core of many people and they took action by taking over the Malheur Wildlife Refuge, in order to make the American people aware of the unlawful methods of the Federal Government and their hired mercenaries.
When connecting the dots the purchase of Uranium by the Russian company killed Lavoy Finicum and put an innocent hard-working rancher in Federal Prison.
