Senator Sessions: Clinton Foundation may be involved in extortion

Sen. Jeff Sessions, Republican, Alabama

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Alabama) told CNN Tuesday that it “seems like” the FBI didn’t get around to fully investigating the actual relationship between the corruption-plagued Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation and the U.S. Department of State. (Sessions is an ally of Clinton’s opponent in the general election, Republican businessman Donald Trump.)

“The evidence indicates to me that this should be fully investigated,” Sessions said, according to a LifeZette report. “I cannot say that [FBI Director] Mr. [James] Comey has not completed a full investigation but it seems like he has not.”

Sessions said that “just because [Comey] might conclude there is not a chargeable offense does not indicate that there is no wrongdoing.”

“The fundamental thing is you cannot be secretary of state of the United States of America and use that position to extort or to seek contributions to your private foundation,” Sessions said. “That is a fundamental violation of law and that does appear to have happened.”

Sessions said it’s clear that donors to the Clinton Foundation expected their donations to give them access to the machinery of government.

“Why are these people in countries that are very poor giving millions of dollars, even hundreds of millions of dollars, to a foundation that doesn’t benefit them in any direct way or the people in their country?” the senator said.

“They’re doing it to gain access, and you [shouldn’t] pay to get access.”

Sessions’ comments come as USA Today editorializes that the Clinton Foundation should be shut down and the left-wing Boston Globe urges the foundation to stop accepting donations.

Capital Research Center has published several profiles of the Clinton Foundation over the years. The two most recent are “The Clinton Foundation:  A cauldron of conflicts and cronyism,” by Barbara Joanna Lucas, Foundation Watch, May 2015, and “The Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation: Pay no attention to the First Family behind the curtain,” by Jonathan M. Hanen, Foundation Watch, September 2014.

More #BlackLivesMatter lunacy

shutterstock_383952574

It never ends with these people. Everything everywhere every time is always about race.

New York Black Lives Matter agitator Arielle Newton, a racist as all BLM leaders are, whined in an op-ed that “this presidential election is best characterized as a tyrannical pageant of white fear.”

Whatever that means.

Newton bashed the GOP as a “nativist institution” and then hit Democrats even though the Democratic National Committee has formally endorsed her dangerous cult of a movement. That party “pays lip service to the black community, and does not represent any transformative pathway to wholehearted racial justice or black liberation,” she said.

Maybe Newton wants forced labor camps for those who don’t toe her militant line.

“The Democratic establishment will never call for the abolition of law enforcement or economic reparations for black bodies,” Newton writes. “[I]nstead they’ll call for police­-worn body cameras and (maybe) ‘independent’ oversight.”

But the Democratic Party is already halfway there, regardless of Newton’s ravings.

The DNC resolution adopted a year ago in Minneapolis accuses American police of “extrajudicial killings of unarmed African American men, women and children.”

Plenty of Democrats favor giving black Americans reparations because of slavery, which ended a century and a half ago, and any Democrat proposing to do away with all law enforcement wouldn’t get laughed off the stage at a party function.

Another academic sinecure for DeRay the Destroyer

DeRay Mckesson

A George Soros-backed Black Lives Matter leader with delusions of eloquence has been given his second prestigious academic posting in two years because he’s good at starting race riots. It’s proof that crime pays. Embrace the pathologies of the Left and you will be showered with high praise and honors.

The agitator at hand is DeRay Mckesson, who should be in prison along with his fellow BLM  terrorists. He will be a Fall 2016 fellow at the University of Chicago’s Institute of Politics.

This is another reminder of why you shouldn’t give your hard-earned money to America’s universities.

Here’s the biographical blurb from the U. of Chicago website that details Mckesson’s meteoric rise from obscurity to Alinskyite role model:

DeRay Mckesson is a prominent activist within the Black Lives Matter movement and a leading voice against police violence. Known for his social media prowess, Mckesson has been in the public eye since the August 2014 protests in Ferguson when he began speaking out against excessive use of force by police and advocating for reform. Since then, he has grown his Twitter following to more than 500,000 and in 2015 he co-founded Campaign Zero, a comprehensive platform to end police violence. Recognized by Fortune Magazine as one of the World’s Greatest Leaders in 2015, Mckesson previously worked as a top human resources administrator in the public schools in Baltimore and Minneapolis. A Baltimore native, Mckesson graduated from Bowdoin College in 2007.

Unmentioned is Mckesson’s advocacy of street violence to advance his evil cause.

That’s what he did just last year when he was handed a teaching fellowship at Yale. Mckesson used his perch to argue that looting is a fine way to advance the racist Black Lives Matter movement.

“Looting for me isn’t violent, it’s an expression of anger,” he told his students at Yale.

“The act of looting is political. Another  way to dissolve consent. Pressing you to no longer keep me out of this space, by destroying it.”

How Mckesson ever got through college is a mystery.

Mckesson represents the triumph of self-esteem over reality. He fancies himself a poet and an intellectual. He enjoys imitating  the vapid prose of Ta-Nehisi Coates, himself a talentless creation of a corrupt media-academic complex.

Say what you will about the Left but they take care of their own.

Voter fraud is real

VoteForMickey

The Heritage Foundation provides a helpful pre-election reminder that voter fraud remains a problem in the United States.

“Progressives insist that voter fraud is a myth, a charade meant to justify repressive voting laws,” write Peter Tapsak and Jason Snead.

“The facts, however, tell a different story: Voter fraud is real, and if we ignore it, we leave our ballot boxes open to fraudsters who would rather steal elections than risk losing in a fair and open contest.”

Heritage maintains a database of election fraud convictions. It stands at more than 400 and growing. (Some of the entries overlap with the 54 ACORN-related election fraud convictions I documented in my book, Subversion Inc.)

A new entry in the Heritage database comes from Wisconsin.

Robert Monroe pled “no contest” to 13 counts of voter fraud, making him the most prolific duplicate voter in state history, Milwaukee County Assistant District Attorney Bruce Landgraf said.

Call it the Urban De-development Fund: Black Lives Matter gets $100 million to set more cities on fire

blackpower-blackunity-blackpanthers

The black nationalist terrorists of Black Lives Matter are about to get a huge injection of left-wing cash to help them kill more cops and burn more businesses to the ground.

(My takedown of BLM appeared a few months ago in American Thinker.)

Underwriting this mayhem are the Ford Foundation and Borealis Philanthropy which are creating something they call the Black-Led Movement Fund (BLMF), a six-year pooled donor campaign that seeks to generate $100 million for the Movement for Black Lives coalition.

The Washington Times reports:

That funding comes in addition to more than $33 million in grants to the Black Lives Matter movement from top Democratic Party donor George Soros through his Open Society Foundations, as well as grant-making from the Center for American Progress.

“The BLMF provides grants, movement building resources, and technical assistance to organizations working advance the leadership and vision of young, Black, queer, feminists and immigrant leaders who are shaping and leading a national conversation about criminalization, policing and race in America,” said the Borealis announcement.

In doing so, however, the foundations have aligned themselves with the staunch left-wing platform of the Movement for Black Lives, which unveiled a policy agenda shortly after the fund was announced accusing Israel of being an “apartheid state” guilty of “genocide.”

GOP promotes voter fraud in Colorado

shutterstock_461922709

UPDATE 5:15 p.m. Eastern: The Colorado secretary of state’s office objects to this post saying it is inaccurate. Safeguards, we have safeguards, they say. Lots and lots of safeguards. Please stand by…

UPDATE 7:15 p.m. Eastern: Secretary Williams’ office will send us a statement (possibly as early as tomorrow) giving its side of the story which we will gladly post.

First the Left flipped Colorado from a solid Republican red state to solid Democrat blue.

Now the Left is opening the floodgates in the Centennial State to massive voter fraud.

On the advice of left-wing pressure groups, Colorado Secretary of State Wayne W. Williams, allegedly a Republican, has decided to let anyone with a smartphone become a Colorado voter. Just text a word to Williams’ office and you’ll be given an opportunity to register to vote. (These online documents disappear eventually so I made a PDF for posterity. Read it here.)

The headline on the press release from Williams actually reads, “Hey, CO. U can now text 2 register 2 vote. LOL!

But Coloradans who want fair elections untainted by fraud won’t be LOLing (laughing out loud).

Clinton Foundation may have been hacked

hacked

It turns out the anticipatory bribe processing vehicle known as the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation may have been hacked.

According to Reuters,

Bill and Hillary Clinton’s charitable foundation hired the security firm FireEye to examine its data systems after seeing indications they might have been hacked, according to two sources familiar with the matter.

So far, no message or document hacked from the New York-based Clinton Foundation has surfaced in public, the sources said.

One of the sources and two U.S. security officials said that like hackers who targeted the Democratic National Committee, Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and the Democrats’ congressional fundraising committee, the hackers appear to have used “spear phishing” techniques to gain access to the foundation’s network.

These techniques include creating bogus emails or websites in an effort to gain access to Clinton Foundation staffers’ emails and then to the foundation itself.

Democrats and Hillary Clinton’s campaign are reportedly concerned that any hacked emails or voice messages could provide yet more damaging evidence against the ridiculously corrupt Clinton Foundation. Such information could prove damaging to Clinton’s bid to return to the White House.

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) is so worried it reportedly held a meeting behind closed doors Wednesday to take stock of its cyber security practices.

Bradley effect in 2016?

ZipApp

Some Donald Trump supporters are saying the fact that Hillary Clinton is ahead in virtually all national polls doesn’t mean a thing. Look at the huge crowds Trump keeps drawing to his campaign rallies and the tremendous support for him in social media, they say.

I’m not quite ready to accept that.

It reminds me of Election Day 2004 when more than a few John Kerry supporters were very confident the Democrat challenger would oust George W. Bush because he was leading exit polls. When Bush (barely) won reelection the Left suffered a mental breakdown claiming the exit polls were more reliable than the actual results.

And then there was the 2012 election where Mitt Romney seemed to be surging in the final days. He seemed (to some) to have momentum. His speeches were well-received. He sounded presidential. But in the end it was just psychological. Romney supporters wanted him to win so they convinced themselves he was winning.

On his August 8 radio show, Rush Limbaugh cautioned against reflexively rejecting poll data. “I guess what I’m saying is it’s a risk here to just throw the polls out and say they don’t matter because you end up creating a false reality for yourself that isn’t true.”

Now comes an app maker named Crazy Raccoons whose app suggests Trump will win in a landslide. (Crazy Raccoons self identifies as a “technology think tank providing simple solutions to complex problems.”)

From a USA Today report:

“Based on the stats we see, he looks strong,” says Ric Militi, co-founder of San Diego-based Crazy Raccoons, maker of the Zip question and answer app. His app poses questions and polls responses based on an average of 100,000 daily users. “I go with Trump, based on what we see.”

[…]

How can Zip’s results be so different?

“We’re not a poll. We’re a conversation, and 100% anonymous,” Militi says. “People feel comfortable answering questions without fear of being bullied or being called a racist. People can express themselves safely, and you get a pure answer.”

Does this mean this year’s election will be subject to some kind of “Bradley effect”?

And what is the Bradley effect, you may ask.

Islamist subversive in England could go to gaol for a frightfully long time

anjem_choudary

Britain’s leading Islamofascist agitator Anjem Choudary could go to prison for a decade because he has been convicted of supporting Islamic State (a.k.a. Daesh, ISIS, ISIL).

Unfortunately the United Kingdom abolished the death penalty in 1998.

Breitbart News reports

Choudary was convicted at the Old Bailey after jurors heard that he had sworn allegiance to the terrorist group, and urged his followers to do the same in a series of videos broadcast via YouTube.

Both Choudary and his co-defendant, Mohammed Rahman, 33, urged their supporters to obey Islamic State’s leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and to travel to Syria to support Islamic State, also referred to as “the caliphate”, the court heard.

The pair were convicted in July but details of the court case, including the verdict, could not be reported until today. They both face up to ten years in jail for inviting support for a proscribed organisation, and will be sentenced in September.

Prosecutor Richard Whittam QC said: “The prosecution case is that whichever name is used, the evidence is quite clear: when these defendants were inviting support for an Islamic state or caliphate they were referring to the one declared in Syria and its environs by Ibrahim [Abu Bakr] al-Baghdadi at the end of June 2014.

“Terrorist organisations thrive and grow because people support them and that is what this case is about. Do not confuse that with the right of people to follow the religion of their choice or to proclaim support for a caliphate.”

Choudary denied the charges, claiming merely to be a “lecturer in sharia law” giving “the Islamic perspective”.  As part of the evidence jurors were shown a YouTube video lasting one hour and six minutes, uploaded to Choudary’s YouTube channel on 9 September 2014, titled How Muslims Assess the Legitimacy of the Caliphate. The video consisted of a speech by Choudary, played over the image of a map of northern Africa, the Middle East, north-west Asia and southern Europe. […]

No one should be surprised that Choudary is an enemy of Western civilization.

In 2015 Choudary said, International Business Times reports, that he “would love to go and live” in the Islamic State, “if the British government would give back my passport. People are flocking to the Islamic State, […] people are loving it there. You can see the parties in the streets in Raqqa and Ramadi.”

Communists involved in Milwaukee mayhem

hammer and sickle on red field

Amazingly, the mainstream media is actually reporting on the terrible things that communists (yes, they still exist) do in America.

I was flabbergasted to see the New York Times reporting yesterday that the police chief in violence-plagued Milwaukee, Ed Flynn, said communists were stirring up trouble in his city. Normally the Old Gray Lady ignores or covers for communists.

Flynn said Monday that members of the Chicago chapter of the (kooky but potentially dangerous) Revolutionary Communist Party showed up “and they’re the ones who started to cause trouble.” The party claimed some of its members did go to Milwaukee to “support a revolution” but didn’t set out to cause trouble.

Angry blacks took to the streets Saturday long before much was even known about the police-involved shooting of Sylville Smith, a 23-year-old black man carrying a stolen gun. Smith was shot dead by a black police officer Saturday afternoon during a pursuit on foot after he fled a traffic stop. He ignored police orders to drop his weapon and —who’da thunk it?— got blown away by a cop who didn’t want to become another homicide statistic.

Party co-founder Carl Dix called the protests in Wisconsin a “righteous rebellion.” Dix blamed police for Smith’s death, and of course, also blamed police for the riots the police have had to deal with.

“This system sees police wantonly murdering people as part of the normal order of things,” Dix said, regurgitating the paranoid nonsense spouted by Black Lives Matter.

The Revolutionary Communist Party also participated in the unrest that rocked Ferguson, Mo. after the (completely appropriate) shooting of would-be cop killer Michael Brown in 2014.
