President Donald Trump is considering removing the security clearances for several Obama-era officials. So far six people are on the shortlist of Trump’s decision. The list starts with John Brennan, a former CIA Director. The other names are James Clapper, James Comey, and several others who might be considered ‘politicizing’ and/or ‘monetizing’ public service.

This is sure to fire up Democrats who support the following names, particularly those who go against President Trump and everything he fights for. Some Democrats just can’t be pleased.

“White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Monday said that President Trump is exploring whether to remove the security clearance of former CIA Director John Brennan and other top Obama-era intelligence officials.

Sanders accused Brennan, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former FBI Director James Comey and others of “politicizing” and “monetizing” their public service.

“They’ve politicized and in some cases monetized their public service and security clearances,” Sanders said during the daily press briefing. “Making baseless accusations of improper contact with Russia, or being influenced by Russia, against the president is extremely inappropriate and the fact that people with security clearances are making these baseless charges provides inappropriate legitimacy to accusations with zero evidence.”

Sanders’s comments came after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) suggested on Twitter that Brennan should have his security clearance revoked.

“Is John Brennan monetizing his security clearance? Is John Brennan making millions of dollars divulging secrets to the mainstream media with his attacks on @realDonaldTrump?” Paul wrote. He said he was meeting with Trump Monday to ask the president to remove Brennan’s security clearance.

Brennan and other former officials have been publicly critical of the president’s comments about Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Trump sparked bipartisan criticism last week when he cast doubt on the intelligence community’s assessment of Russian election interference — a remark he later walked back.

Last week, Brennan described Trump’s remarks alongside Russian President Vladimir Putin following their meeting in Helsinki as “nothing short of treasonous” and suggested they exceeded the threshold of impeachment “high crimes & misdemeanors.”

Sanders also said Monday that Trump is “looking to take away” security clearances belonging to former Obama national security adviser Susan Rice and former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe — the FBI official who was fired by Attorney General Jeff Sessions in March before the publication of an inspector general report that criticized his conduct.

Sanders declined to provide a timeline for when the security clearances might be revoked and also pushed back at the suggestion that the president is targeting individuals who had spoken out against him.

“No, I think you are creating your own story there,” Sanders said in response to a reporter’s question. “The president doesn’t like the fact that people are politicizing agencies and departments that are specifically meant to not be political.”

Sanders went on to refute the suggestion that Trump is himself politicizing matters of national security by going after his “political enemies.”

Trump has repeatedly derided special counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing investigation into Russian interference which is looking into whether there was collusion between Trump’s campaign and Moscow. The president has repeatedly referred to the probe as a “witch hunt.”

“The president’s not making baseless accusations of contact with a foreign government,” Sanders said.

“When you have the highest level of security clearance, when you’re the person who holds the nation’s deepest, most sacred secrets at your hands, and you go out and you make false accusations against the president of the United States, he thinks that‘s something to be very concerned with and we’re exploring what those options are and what that looks like,” Sanders added.”

More Than 90 Muslims Running For Office Across U.S. All Have The Same Thing In Common

This demographic is growing quickly

Published

on

As the 2018 midterms heat up, the choice of political candidates is becoming ever more diverse and somewhat confusing. There are a ton of Muslim candidates running for office across the United States. Most are Democrats as far as I know and support a liberal agenda. This election cycle has seen more Muslim candidates running for office than I can ever remember in my lifetime. At least one in Minnesota is pretty much a done deal and others may follow suit.

Fayaz Nawabi, who is 31 years old, is one such candidate in San Diego, California. He has never met President Trump, but he does give him credit for his running for office currently. He is running for San Diego City Council. Nawabi is pro-affordable housing, pro-environment, pro-immigrant and pro-refugee. He’s also pro-gun control. That makes him part of the blue wave of new liberal candidates that are spurred to run by Trump’s election and his conservative policies. The blue wave’s political platform is exceedingly liberal in all respects and pretty much the polar opposite of Trump’s.

In fact, Nawabi is part of a new subset of liberal politics… the blue Muslim wave. More than 90 American Muslims are running for office this time around. They are young and new to politics. They all have in common that they are long shots, stand against President Trump’s policies and are primarily Democrats. But even if they lose, they will surely run again next time around and they are gaining experience on the ground this campaign season.

Their numbers may seem relatively small, but their candidacies are a trend. This is an unprecedented rise in political numbers for the nation’s diverse Muslim community that typically has been underrepresented in American politics. Currently, there are more than 3.3 million Muslims that live in the United States. And that number is increasing every year. Right now, they hold just two of the 535 seats in Congress. Voter participation in Muslim communities is very low as well. That’s something these candidates are trying to rectify.

From The Counter Jihad Report:

“The rise of Muslim candidates coincides with the growth of the predominantly immigrant population and a partisan shift that has played out over a generation. In a 2001 Zogby poll of American Muslims, 42 percent said they voted for Republican George W. Bush in the previous year’s presidential election, while 31 percent said they voted for Democrat Al Gore. By last year, just 8 percent of voting American Muslims in a Pew poll said they voted for Trump, while 78 percent said they voted for Democrat Hillary Clinton.

“While Clinton’s campaign never garnered broad enthusiasm from Muslim communities, Trump’s campaign — which called for the monitoring of mosques and a ban on Muslims entering the United States — delivered a jolt on election night that some American Muslims likened to the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

“’It woke everyone up,” Nawabi said.

“Now, Muslim candidates are running for a wide range of offices across the country, from local school boards to the U.S. Senate. Some are making their Muslim identity central to their campaigns.

“’When you put someone in a corner and they’re in survival mode, they have a tendency to come out and speak more prominently about their beliefs,” said Nawabi, who considers himself an “unapologetic Muslim” who can quote the Koran from memory and moonlights as a “freelance imam.’”

In Michigan alone, there are thirteen Muslim candidates running for office. Physician Abdul El-Sayed is hoping voters will elect him to be the first Muslim governor in the United States and he has used his religious affiliation unapologetically in his campaign ads against Republican front-runner Bill Schuette, whom Trump has endorsed. “Donald Trump and Steve Bannon would love to see a right-wing radical like Bill Schuette elected in Michigan,” reads a Facebook ad for El-Sayed, who faces a Democratic primary in August. “You know what would be sweet justice? If we elected a 33-year-old Muslim instead of Bill Schuette. Send a message and help elect the first Muslim governor in America.” Michigan is pretty much ground zero for Muslim politics these days. A fierce battle in politics is playing out there in Muslim communities.

Another candidate is Asif Mahmood, a 56-year-old pulmonologist. He would be the first Muslim insurance commissioner in California. Deedra Abboud, 45, in Arizona, or Jesse Sbaih, 42, in Nevada, could be the country’s first Muslim senator. And any one of four Muslim women running for office: Nadia Hashimi, 40, in Maryland; Sameena Mustafa, 47, in Illinois; or Fayrouz Saad, 34, and Rashida Tlaib, 41, in Michigan could be the first female Muslim in Congress.

As I said, many of these new candidates may not win this time around, but give it time. They are determined and their communities are pulling together behind them. The proof will be in the statistics, polls and voter turnouts come election day. This demographic is growing quickly and you will definitely see more Muslims in office in the next election cycle or two should this trend continue.

Libs Freak Over Illegal Arrested Driving Prego Wife To Hospital, Didn’t Mention Sick Person He Is

The subsequent spin by the media spread far and wide

Published

on

Another day, another freakout by liberals over a fake news story. This time it again has to do with an illegal alien and if you just went by the headlines in the mainstream media, you’d think that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) was the evilest and most heartless outfit on the face of the earth. But once again, facts are left out and not reported accurately at all. Oh, how I long for real journalism that just reports what’s going on these days.

The illegal alien in question was in southern California (of course). He was arrested while transporting his pregnant wife to the hospital. ICE detained him when he stopped to get gas. But before you believe the left’s crocodile tears, this guy is wanted for murder in Mexico according to immigration authorities. Joel Arrona Lara, who is 36, was detained by ICE officers on Wednesday at a gas station in San Bernardino, California. His wife, Maria del Carmen Venegas, was scheduled for a cesarean section and that is why Arrona Lara was rushing her to the hospital.

I guess the media just overlooked the fact the guy was wanted for murder. Too bad for them that news of this guy’s arrest and the subsequent spin by the media spread far and wide and did so quickly. Several media outlets had the nerve to characterize it as an example of the Trump administration’s heavy-handed crackdown on illegal immigration. Venegas told CBS 2 in Spanish that Arrona Lara had never been stopped by police and didn’t have a criminal record of any kind, including traffic violations. She lied. Imagine that. “He had to wait for his son for so long, and someone just took him away,” she said.

“Mr. Arrona-Lara was brought to ICE’s attention due to an outstanding warrant for his arrest in Mexico on homicide charges,” ICE spokeswoman Lori Haley told The Daily Caller News Foundation. There’s also security footage from the gas station that shows him getting out of his car and then being arrested by ICE officers. A very upset Venegas then used her phone as her hubby was carted away.

Arrona Lara’s lawyer, Emilio Amaya Garcia, accused ICE officers of endangering Venegas and her unborn baby. “In this case, not only did they put the life of the mother in danger but also that of the child, who is a citizen of this country,” he told Univision on Thursday. Excuse me… what about the person he allegedly murdered? That is the ultimate endangerment if you ask me. And I highly doubt that the wife or the child was in danger because this was a scheduled cesarean section, not an emergency one.

Arrona Lara has allegedly been living illegally in the U.S. for 12 years. ICE released the following statement concerning his arrest:

“Mr. Arrona-Lara, a citizen of Mexico illegally residing in the United States, was taken into custody Wednesday by ICE Fugitive Operations Team officers in San Bernardino, Calif. Mr. Arrona-Lara is currently in ICE custody pending removal proceedings with the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR).”

“ICE continues to focus its enforcement resources on individuals who pose a threat to national security, public safety, and border security. ICE conducts targeted immigration enforcement in compliance with federal law and agency policy. However, ICE will no longer exempt classes or categories of removable aliens from potential enforcement. All of those in violation of the immigration laws may be subject to immigration arrest, detention and, if found removable by final order, removal from the United States.”

Many of these mainstream media outlets ran with misleading headlines, to say the least. They painted a picture of brutality and inhumanity as the left is currently trying to demonize and abolish ICE. Many publications didn’t even include the fact Arrona-Lara was a homicide suspect in their reports. How do you leave out that fact and even call yourself a media outlet?

The Daily Wire has a nice roundup of misleading media headlines:

The Washington Post: “ICE arrested a man driving his pregnant wife to give birth. She drove herself to the hospital.”

The Sacramento Bee: “They were on their way to the hospital to have a baby when ICE took him away”

CBS News: “ICE detains man driving pregnant wife to hospital to deliver baby”

TIME: “ICE Agents Detained a Man Driving His Pregnant Wife to the Hospital”

Slate: “ICE Officers Arrest Man Who Was Driving Pregnant Wife to Hospital for C-Section”

NY Mag: “ICE Arrests Husband Who Was Taking Wife to Give Birth at Hospital”

Newsweek: “Ice Agents, Part Of Trump Crackdown, Detain Husband Driving Pregnant Wife To Deliver Baby'”

Fair and balanced they are not. NBC News was one of the few to get the reporting right on this, if you can believe it. They reported that ICE specifically noted that Arrona Lara was arrested because of an “outstanding warrant issued for his arrest in Mexico on homicide charges.”

The irony of all this is not lost on me. The timing of the media’s latest deception to demonize the Trump administration for political gain comes just two days after more than 400 newspapers wrote op-eds decrying President Trump’s attacks on the media for inaccurately covering news stories and for sometimes reporting blatantly false information. Yeah… about that… see above.
