Back in the fall of 2010, the question was, what was up with FBI outreach to known-Hamas-op Kifah Mustapha? Everybody at a Washington intelligence conference this week told me to ask the FBI. So I did.

I wrote the following column about their answers:

"They Call It Intelligence" October 7, 2010

Reading Patrick Poole's splashy coverage of the FBI's VIP treatment of Kifah Mustapha -- a known Hamas operative and unindicted co-conspirator in the landmark Holy Land Foundation terror financing trial -- will make your head spin with this dizzying question:

How could the same officials charged with securing the nation against the very terrorism Mustapha's activities supported (as laid out in court documents filed by federal investigators) have possibly invited him into the top-secret National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC) and the FBI's training center at Quantico during a six-week "Citizen's Academy" hosted by the FBI as "outreach" to the Muslim community?

Watching Sen. Cruz question DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson about the absence of the word, "jihad," the enemy threat doctrine of our "homeland's" most lethal enemy, in the latest government security and strategy documents, I am struck anew by how very long this official effort to suppress the facts about Islam (not, not, not "Radicalislam") has been going on -- throughout the Obama administration, of course, but long before it began. This battle of suppression was already being waged when on September 17, 2001 President George W. Bush told the nation, "Islam is peace." Soon he would send armies into that Islamic world of peace to do battle, wholly ignorant of Islamic war, or jihad.

All these years later, the campaign is still a success -- if, that is, the point is to protect Islam, not the "homeland" from Islamic attack.

When it comes to Big Lies about Islam, nothing much has changed except...

Even as former Ambassador Thomas Pickering has been deservedly thrashed in the media for "taking money from Boeing while vocally supporting the Iran nuclear deal" -- the same Boeing that recently inked a $25 billion passenger jet deal with Tehran -- his old striped pants have barely been creased. The Pickering facade of Grand Old Diplomat remains in place, if now a little crooked.

But there is so much more to Pickering than his many diplomatic posts, however lofty they may seem to reporters including Betsy Woodruff at the Daily Beast, who broke the Boeing-Pickering-Iran story of hot and greasy...

Through the good offices of Gates of Vienna, below is a translation from the Russian of Vladimir Bukovsky's recent column on Brexit, written for the Ukrainian publication Gordon. The translation is by by D@rLin|{, and I am very grateful to have it.

PUBLICATIONS  “Gordon’s exclusive”

Bukovsky: As soon as Ukraine got rid of USSR’s yoke, it started asking to join the EU. This is incredibly dumb!

The EU – a huge and insanely expensive bureaucracy, like the Soviet Union was. Great Britain finally understood that and voted to leave the EU, which is doomed to fail. So thinks the author and journalist Vladimir Bukovsky, who has lived in England for the past 40 years. In his “Gordon” column, the former Soviet dissident explains why everyone, except Russia, will benefit...

Vladimir Bukovsky's illuminating arguments against the "soft" totalitarianism of the European Union are well known. (In fact, I discuss them in American Betrayal.) If you have not heard him point out the many startling similarities between the EU and the Soviet Union, do watch this short video.

"There is an alternative to being ruled by those two dozen self-appointed officials in Brussels," as he has long said. "It is called independence."

On asking Bukovsky for a comment on the Brexit vote for British independence, the first forceful strike ever against the post-WWII, global, New World Order, he passed along the following:

 



 On deck: Nexit and Frexit.

What to say? Good news takes some getting used to.

How about: Take that, globalists!

Or: Nationalists of the one-world-goverment, disunite!

Next up, Frexit, Nexit -- and US out of UN.

Sky's the limit.



Ed Cline (above), a good friend and also supporter of American Betrayal, is the patriot on the ISIS kill list who needs help.

The story below conveys the essential details of this real-life trauma in the actual life of an American citizen, circa 2016, but the effect is surreal, dystopic. It is happening here, and we are discovering that we are now and perhaps for all time powerless to stop it. 

Surely, though, we can help our fearless compatriot in his time of need.

This is the back page of Friday's Weekend Arts II section, a full-page advertisement for an upcoming auction at Bonhams in London to include this Warhol silkscreen of Mao, the Communist monster responsible for the deaths of 80 to 100 million -- or more -- human beings. His portrait is expected to sell for between $820,000 and $1.1 million. 

What sort of society looks on this face, prizes it, showcases it, turns it into a sign of success and sophistication?

It is the same society that glows and puffs up with sacrosanct pride over the two democratic leaders, Churchill and FDR, sitting alongside the mass murderer "Uncle Joe" Stalin, estimated to have killed 60 million human beings, revealed to have been at this same moment of solidarity successfully deploying a Communist intelligence army of occupation against his two "allies," and successfully surbverting their nations...

In October 2015 I gave this talk at the Social Contract Workshop outside Washington, DC, (and forgot to post it).

It examines the ideology behind the immigration crisis, reframed as a war on law and nation waged by governing elites in both Europe and the US seeking to repopulate our countries. How did this all come about? How, for example, did we get from the 1920s, when the question, "How might immigration benefit the American people?" was on Congress's mind, to today, when Congress drives masses of migrants/refugees into our cities, towns and communities?

  







In essence, my 2007 book, The Death of the Grown-Up: How America's Arrested Development Is Bringing Down Western Civilization, was an extended rumination on the cultural factors that made Americans unable to talk about, study, teach, debate, let alone face and ward off Islam like "grown-ups" -- honestly, logically, fearlessly. It is a cultural history of how Americans and other Western peoples evolved into the perfect dhimmi. 

Today, the taboo against telling the truth about our Islamic crisis, just like the Islamic crisis itself, is far worse because it has been institutionalized, deeply rooted, selected for, and otherwise set in the postmodern equivalent of stone.

Those familiar with the "long war" on American Betrayal will know why the publication of a letter I have written to the editor of a publication that has printed one of more than a score of lyin' attack pieces gets an exclamation point in the headline: So many journals have refused to publish my responses at all.

So, first, a cheer for American Communist History, Volume 14, Issue 3, which yesterday (finally) published the letter below.

Lt. Col. Archibald B. Roosevelt during World War II

Remember when that old cabal of American ex-Communists and American Communism experts shrieked, hissed and hurled toxic mud over American Betrayal's thickly-sourced discussions of the "occupation" of the halls of power in Washington, D.C. by a secret, Kremlin-directed intelligence army?

Good news, the very latest, on the Bukovsky case. From Luke Harding of The Guardian via Twitter: 

 

 

If a tree falls in the forest -- no, if a legendary Soviet dissident goes on a hunger strike, and there is no media there to report on it, will it ever crash into world consciousness?

Not so far. I find myself in some numbing degree of disbelief at the general silence over the fact that Vladimir Bukovsky is now 20 days into a hunger strike -- his impasse with the British justice system becoming a life and death struggle in a frighteningly literal sense -- amid scant news coverage and even less discernible sense of public urgency. Thank goodness for Claire Berlinski's powerfully human cri de commentary that came out today at Ricchochet.

As with all legal wrangles, the details are a little complicated, but the essence of this case is clear. Vladimir Bukovsky, the legendary Soviet dissident, has once again pitted himself against a state power. It is not, of course, the old Kremlin; it is the British legal system, which last April charged him with serious crimes: five charges each of making and possessing indecent images of children; one charge of possessing a forbidden image.

Those are the facts. That is, it is a fact that the Crown Prosecution Service made public both these charges and their intent to prosecute Bukovsky one year ago online at their "news centre."

Are these charges true? Bukovsky is pleading not guilty to all charges, which are to be heard in court on May 16. 

Last August, Bukovsky filed an unusual countersuit. He sued the Crown Prosecution Service...

Part 20 of the "Post-Constitutional Election" series is here.

The insularity of Eliteworld is such that when Evan Thomas (Phillips Academy, Harvard) argues in a New York Times op-ed, "Why We Need Foreign Policy Elites," he assumes that his Exhibits A & B  -- (A) "opening China" (B) arms control treaties (detente) with the USSR -- will all but clinch his un-democratic case for the necessity of turning over foreign affairs to a cadre of Ivy-trained policy advisors.

That's bad enough. 

What comes next, though, goes beyond liberal platitudes about what might constitute unassailable policy successes.

Watch Andrew Bostom lecture on "Islam and the `Sexual Ethics' of Jihad Slavery," as presented on January 29, 2016 at The Education Policy Conference in St. Louis, MO. 

The depredations of ISIS in the Middle East, the Muslim migrant (real) war on women in Europe, will never seem "extreme" again -- within the Islamic context, that is. They are perfectly Islamic, sanctioned and practiced for 14 centuries. 

The trick is to prevent the Islamic context from becoming the Western context.

The Hill has published a list of 61 Republican lawmakers, operatives, donors and pundits who have vowed never, ever to vote for Donald Trump, ever. Never.

No matter how many lights it takes to write their names, even this most luminous concentration of anti-Trump fervor (vows by the dozen!) is unlikely to affect the final GOP delegate count too terribly much. 

Not surprisingly, there is overlap between "Never Trump" and the "contributors" of my ever-growing, ever-oozing Right's Anti-Trump Lexicon. This merits a salute: selected quotations to commemorate the expert insights and always elevated -- yea, rarified -- tone of #NeverTrump.

Extremely distressing news from the Guardian by Luke Harding about the great Vladimir Bukovsky (above): 

The Russian dissident Vladimir Bukovsky has been on hunger strike at his home in Cambridge for more than a week in protest at what he calls the “Kafkaesque” British judicial system.

Bukovsky was charged last year with child pornography offences. He strenuously denies the allegations. In August he took the unusual step of suing the Crown Prosecution Service for libel: he is seeking £100,000 in damages and claims the CPS has “falsely and maliciously” hurt his reputation.

Maxing out maudlin to a pinnacle of banal that overshadows even audacious theft and exploitation, behold Ronald Reagan as heavenly sock puppet of #NeverTrump, breaking his own 11th commandment not to speak ill of other Republicans with a whopper straight from "Jimmy's World," brimming over with a tear too gaudy for Bambi. 

I think what they meant to say was: Congratulations to the presumptive GOP nominee, Donald Trump, on his outstanding sweep of five states yesterday. Yuge! It's time for conservatives and populists in the Republican Party to come together and unify and defeat Hillary Clinton in the fall.

Part 18 of the "Post-Constitutional Election" series is here.

Curly Haugland is an unbound RNC delegate from Bismarck, North Dakota, and a member of the national convention rules committee. He is also something of a regular on cable, especially CNBC, where, in the calmest of tones, Curly will explain that ours is a nation of delegates, not voters -- at least as far as the GOP presidential nominating process goes.

To be sure, Curly doesn't know why his party even bothers to hold primaries. It's not that the contests are completely irrelevant -- the delegates "use the primaries to get some kind of an indication of the preference of the population" -- but, as Curly puts it, "the delegates at the convention choose the nominee, not the voters."

Bismarckian delusions of grandeur? Not...

This is getting interesting.

Donald Trump is now the only candidate running for president of the United States to call for the release of the 28 redacted pages in the 9/11 commission report. These pages, which are believed to implicate Saudi Arabia in the 9/11 attacks, were hidden away by the Bush administration, and continue to be withheld from public view by the Obama administration.

Sen. Rand Paul also supports releasing the 28 pages. While still a presidential candidate, Paul introduced a Senate amendment in June 2015 to declassify the 28 pages.

In this excellent overview of the 9/11 cover-up the Bush-Obama administrations have engineered and perpetuated, symbolized by those 28 redacted pages of the 9/11 report, former US Senator and Florida Governor Bob Graham, still campaigning tirelessly for the 28 pages' release, makes a point I had not heard before.

(Out on the hustings, by the way, Jeb Bush claimed not to know what the 28 pages were.)

Graham says there is even more than truth and justice at stake. Having continued to hide the role of Saudi Arabia in 9/11 from the American people, the US government has in effect given the original Islamic state a green light for global jihad.

Graham:

I think that the Saudia have gotten the message that given what they know they did in 9/1 that the United States' failure to react is essentially a form of impunity, that we can do anything we want...

Among the stranger phenemena of this campaign season are Ted Cruz's segues from real person into the character played by Michael Douglas in the 1995 movie The American President. I have posted two performances above; there may be more.

On "defending" wife Heidi from Donald Trump's dread "retweet" -- already absurdist melodrama -- the bizarro fact is that Ted Cruz relied on the lines of a script, not his own mind, to speak out. And not just the lines. Cruz further stole Michael Douglas's performance of those same lines to try to generate righteous anger over his wife's "attack." Think about it: The man's wife is supposed to be under attack, and, in response, he plays a part, thick, like a ham. Such "scenes" have sparked some amusement, but little reflection on the oddness of...

Whenever Hiroshima is in the news -- lately, for Secretary of State John Kerry's visit and talk of President Obama's possible visit -- some number of opinion pieces follow, weighing President Truman's decision to drop two atomic bombs on Japanese cities at the end of World War II in the Pacific. Left or Right, most of these pieces seem to write themselves, following narrow and constricting lines of accepted narrative, as though the writers were actors reading lines in a play.

One in particular caught my attention this time aroound, namely for its headline, "Simply no other choice," which perfectly encapsulates the fore-ordained school of U.S. history that cancels questions and punishes exploration.

Smokin' hot off the Youtube, with thanks to Ken Sikorski of Tundra Tabloids.

The transcript of the Trump-Matthews exchange is here.



Does Ana Marie Cox blame women assaulted by rapists for their own violent attacks? 

I ask because this is exactly the stance she takes regarding Donald Trump and the deviant invective one Rick Wilson (among many others on the GOP/Right) uses against Trump and his supporters. Wilson is the GOP Rubio strategist and commentator whose violent and depraved public ravings deserve a chapter of their own in The Right's Anti-Trump Lexicon, or, perhap better, in a psych textbook.

Cox opens her back of the book interview with Wilson in the NYT Sunday Magazine, "Rick Wilson Would Take Clinton Over Trump," thus:

You've gained lots of fans on the left thanks to your vicious descriptions of Trump and his supporters.

As Brussels convulsed in bloody jihad on the morning of March 22, 2016, Ivar Mol sent out this tweet (above). 

Translation from the Dutch: "How can you continue teaching when Muslims in your class are cheering?"

I don't know who Ivar Mol is. His twitter account identifies him as a meditation and yoga teacher.   

His tweet certainly caught my attention, along with that of many others, including some casting doubt on what is, after all, a rhetorical question.    

The implications of Ivar Mol's question shouldn't be shocking, however; not at this late date. From the attacks of 9/11 to Gaza every day, we should be well used to bloodthirsty demonstrations of approval for jihad carnage, as inculcated in followers of Islam by every single authoritative Islamic (not "radical" Islamic) text. That is not to say that many among us will not be shocked -- if they ever even hear of such things.

He is now actively organizing what he calls a two-track process to block Trump's road to the nomination.

Part 10 is here.

Donald Trump's presidential candidacy threatens the Left's strangehold in this country more than any other movement in American politics in my memory, if not modern history.

That's the simple reason thousands of Leftists mobilized in Chicago last week to shut down the democratic process -- to seize the space inside and around a Trump political rally and transform it into a morass of menace, sirens, chaos, and mobs.  

Ted Cruz, John Kasich, Marco Rubio, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Rachel Maddow, Jake Tapper, Megyn Kelly et al to the woeful contrary: Nothing, but nothing, Donald Trump has said from his podium about protestors disrupting his rallies (punch him in the face, get him out of here, beat the crap out of anyone that throws tomatoes at me, I'll defend you in court -- the works) drives the anti-USA agendas of these Leftist groups; nor did it inspire them to organize the mobs that "successfully" interupted the democratic process last week in Chicago.

One of the critically important issues ignored by the Fox panel in last night's debate was Donald Trump's proposed temporary ban on Muslim immigration into the United States. 

Naturally, then, inquiring Fox minds also ignored the globe-shifting migration of hundreds of thousands of mainly Muslim men into Europe in the last year alone. Thus, there were no questions about how the candidates might seek to protect the USA from the effects of mass Islamic immigration, such as the largely Islamic epidemic of violence...

Trump senior policy adviser Stephen Miller, late of Sen. Jeff Sessions' staff, went on with Breitbart News Saturday Stephen K. Bannon, as reported here (including audio).

Breitbart emphasized Miller's "epic" case against Marco Rubio, but Miller's opening remarks about Ted Cruz were to me more illuminating, especially in the context of the "post-constitutional" election series I've been writing.

In the course of this series, I've examined Ted Cruz's branding as the "consistent conservative," also the constitutional conservative, and found it wanting on several levels. For one thing, Cruz has flip-flopped in the space of the primary cycle on vital immigration and trade issues.
