Soros Money, Muslim Advocates Leader, Helped Weaken Homeland Security Policies

And how Americans may have lost their lives as a result.

A Muslim legal group, girded with $1.8 million in grant money from George Soros’s Open Society Foundations (OSF), has helped influence major policy changes in the war on terror, including the Department of Homeland Security’s screening of individuals with suspected terror ties and the FBI’s training program for its agents working in counterterrorism.

Internal records, made public by the hacking group DC Leaks, show OSF spent $40 million between 2008 and 2010 on programs aimed at weakening U.S. counterterrorism policy.

Muslim Advocates’ Executive Director Farhana Khera played a key role in shaping the foundations’ spending. Khera co-authored a 2007 memo that “informed” the foundations’ U.S. Programs Board’s decision to create the National Security and Human Rights Campaign (NSHRC), a Sept. 14, 2010 OSF document discussing the program’s reauthorization, shows.

The NSHRC’s goals included:

  • Closing Guantanamo Bay, eliminating torture and methods such as the extraordinary rendition of prisoners, and ending the use of secret prisons;
  • Ending warrantless and “unchecked” surveillance;
  • Ensuring that anti-terrorism laws and law enforcement activities do not target freedom of speech, association or religious expression;
  • Reducing ethnic and religious profiling of people of Muslim, Arab or South Asian extraction;
  • Decreasing secrecy and increasing oversight of executive actions, and expose U.S. government or private individuals who abuse or violate the law.

Some of these policies, such as closing Guantanamo and ending enhanced interrogation techniques, already were also advocated by Obama administration. OSF claimed its work laid the groundwork for implementing those policies. The Edward Snowden leaks cast light on the depth of the government’s warrantless surveillance activity. The other goals are more difficult to assess.

Muslim Advocates was founded in 2005 as an offshoot of the National Association of Muslim Lawyers. It often criticizes U.S. counterterrorism strategies that use sting operations and informants as discriminatory.

Papers released by the anonymous hacker group DC Leaks show that OSF budgeted $21 million for the NSHRC from 2008-2010. OSF spent an additional $1.5 million in 2010. The NSHRC also received a matching $20 million contribution from Atlantic Philanthropies, a private foundation established in 1982 by Irish-American Chuck Feeney billionaire businessman.

OSF made 105 grants totaling $20,052, 784 to 63 organizations under the NSHRC program. An Investigative Project on Terrorism tally shows Muslim Advocates received at least $1.84 million in OSF grants between 2008 and 2015.

REVEALED: Yahoo ‘secretly scanned the incoming emails of hundreds of millions of customers for the FBI and NSA’ while Edward Snowden urges people to delete their accounts

Yahoo secretly scanned the emails of hundred of millions of customers, it has been revealed.

The company complied with a classified U.S. government directive to search its customers’ incoming emails.

It secretly built a custom software program in 2015 to scan hundreds of millions of Yahoo Mail accounts at the behest of the National Security Agency or FBI last year, two former employees and a third person apprised of the events told Reuters.

Yahoo Chief Executive Marissa Mayer’s decision to obey the directive sparked a huge rift in the company, roiling some senior executives and leading to the June 2015 departure of Chief Information Security Officer Alex Stamos, who now holds the top security job at Facebook.

It is not known what information intelligence officials were looking for, only that they wanted Yahoo to search for a set of characters – that could mean a phrase in an email or an attachment, said the sources, who did not want to be identified.

Refugees sending ‘suitcases of welfare cash’ home to Somalia

From WND
By Leo Hohmann | 18 May 2016

FBI ‘won’t touch it’ for fear of offending Muslims

cash-in-suitcase

Men and women pulling “suitcases full of cash” started showing up at Seattle’s Sea-Tac Airport last year holding tickets for international flights bound for Africa.

Transporting large amounts of cash overseas is perfectly legal. But it was who was carrying the money … and where it was going that caught the attention of law enforcement, according to a report by KING 5, the local NBC affiliate for western Washington.

Those hauling the cash-laden cases were Somali-Americans who’d come to this country as refugees. They routinely send money back to Somalia. And many of the greenbacks headed to the jihadist-infested East African country come from welfare checks the refugees receive from the U.S. government, compliments of American taxpayers.

Hillary horror! ‘Get those f-ing retards out of here’

From WND

Shocking insider account details explosive fits of rage
Hillary-TW
“When are they going to get those f—ing ree-tards out of here?!”

 
Those are said to be the infamous words of Hillary Clinton – also known as Arkansas’ “Mother of the Year” in 1984 – when Hillary reportedly grew frustrated that handicapped children weren’t collecting their Easter eggs quickly enough on the lawn of the Arkansas governor’s mansion.

“[T]he children were having a wonderful time. But they were having a v-e-r-y, v-e-r-y, v-e-r-y s-l-o-w time of finding and picking up the Easter eggs,” wrote Dolly Kyle – a childhood sweetheart of Bill Clinton who had a 33-year relationship with him – in her new book, “Hillary the Other Woman: A Political Memoir.”

Kyle recounted the story as told to her by Arkansas State Police troopers and Louise, a mutual friend of both Kyle and the Clintons and a longtime advocate of what was then the Arkansas Association for Retarded Citizens.

“Hillary had enough. She stomped up the grass to the shaded veranda on the back of the mansion … and accosted one of the troopers,” Kyle wrote. “At this point the story diverges a bit. Some people say there was an open microphone; others said that Hillary could be heard across the yard because she was yelling. … At any rate, the frustrated Me-First Lady demanded, ‘When are they going to get those f—ing ree-tards out of here?’”

But that’s just the beginning of Kyle’s behind-the-scenes peek at the temperament of the woman who could be elected America’s 45th president by the end of this year.

In yet another revelation, Kyle says Hillary – whom she nicknamed “Chilly” – used the terms “stupid kike” and “f—ing Jew bastard” before “condemning all Southerners for racism.”

WND requested comment on Kyle’s allegations from the Hillary Clinton campaign but hadn’t received a response at the time of this report.

A Texas man whose life was destroyed when a sex offender stole his identity hopes he will be able to rebuild his world now the thief has pleaded guilty to misusing his Social Security number.

Marcus Calvillo, 46, was only a teen when illegal immigrant Fernando Neave-Ceniceros, now 41, stole his Social Security number to hide his own identity and lack of illegal status.

Over the next 20-plus years Neave-Ceniceros would go on to commit crimes, including sex offenses with young teens, under Calvillo’s name – ruining his life in the process. But the thief will likely only receive a year and a day in prison, The Dallas Morning News reported.

Whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government…..

America's Watchtower

 Of course those words come straight from the Declaration of Independence and here is the whole quote:

  We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.

  Those are powerful words and yet so simple in their meaning: Man has been given rights from God and as such…

Syria: The questions that must be answered before any aggression. 50963.jpeg
“Unarmed civilians” or terrorists?
 
Below we pose several questions, the basis of this article, which intends to reveal the whole truth behind the issue of the Syrian civil war. These questions have been sent to the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office and the US State Department. Their answers, if they have any, will be revealed to our readers.

Question 1: Why has the west been supporting Syrian terrorist forces for two years?

Question 2: Do you not entertain the notion that to solve the Syrian issue, it would suffice for the west to cease arming, financing and aiding the Syrian terrorist forces fighting President Assad?

Question 3: Are you, or are you not, aware that in supporting forces hostile to President Assad, you are also supporting sources loyal to al-Qaeda?
