You must admit, the pace at which the authorities in the UK are moving to arrest individuals associated with the barbarism of the Manchester Islamic terror attack is breathtaking. But we must ask ourselves, does this quickness and ease represent a pre-knowledge of the existence of this cell of vipers?
We know, due to reports, that the UK has some 3,000 individuals — ok Muslims — under surveillance for terror activities with another 400, knowingly, having traveled out of the UK to join, train, and fight with the Islamic State and return to the UK. The suicide bomber, Salman Abedi, had just returned from Libya where he’d been for three weeks. It appears we have a case of an enemy hiding in plain sight, and yet we have folks who speak out against better vetting and border security? Regardless of being homegrown or not, there is an Islamist infiltration that exists in our liberal democratic states, and our governments have a responsibility to crush it.
But, that is not the focus of the progressive socialists, especially here in the United States. Instead of advancing against the enemy we can plainly see — and we regularly experience their terror — the left focuses instead on a fabricated enemy…which they once dismissed.
Let us not forget it was Barack Obama who chided Mitt Romney in the 2012 presidential debate, along with other leftists, when Romney responded that Russia was our number one geopolitical threat. So now, we’re supposed to believe the Democrats are so concerned about Russia?
Obama told Dmitry Medvedev to “tell Vladimir I’ll have more flexibility after my reelection”, and the left said nothing, but now they are all up in anger about President Trump’s “collusion” with Russia, and he’s tried to influence an investigation thereof? C’mon liberal progressives, this is all y’all got? This is weak as pond water and your “conviction looking for evidence” mentality is not just absurd, it’s delusional and illogical. Sadly, we have a GOP majority that lacks moral courage, kowtowed to the screaming banshees of the left, recused themselves from nothing and appointed a special counsel.
All this when we knew the Obama administration was using our intelligence agency to conduct surveillance on American citizens…for years. Something tells me that’s not going to be discussed by the liberal progressive media, the progressive socialists, and Democrats. This is being referred to as some of the most serious Constitutional violations in our history. This is why the whole Patriot Act, FISA courts, would end up being used wrongly by someone abusing the executive power of the office of the president. Yep, ol’ Barry Soetoro is enjoying his Italian vacation, but he along with Susan Rice and others need to be brought before Congressional hearings…they should be in jail. Nah, instead we have the left concocting Loch Ness and Bigfoot stories.
But, that’s not the only major hypocrisy of the progressive socialist left. Wait! There’s more. Much more.
As reported by The Daily Caller News Foundation, “Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz threatened the chief of the U.S. Capitol Police with “consequences” for holding equipment that she says belongs to her in order to build a criminal case against a Pakistani staffer suspected of massive cybersecurity breaches involving funneling sensitive congressional data offsite.
The Florida lawmaker used her position on the committee that sets the police force’s budget to press its chief to relinquish the piece of evidence Thursday, in what could be considered using her authority to attempt to interfere with a criminal investigation.
The Capitol Police and outside agencies are pursuing Imran Awan, who has run technology for the Florida lawmaker since 2005 and was banned from the House network in February on suspicion of data breaches and theft. “My understanding is the Capitol Police is not able to confiscate Members’ equipment when the Member is not under investigation,” Wasserman Schultz said in the annual police budget hearing of the House Committee On Appropriations’ Legislative Branch Subcommittee.
“We can’t return the equipment,” Police Chief Matthew R. Verderosa told the Florida Democrat.
“I think you’re violating the rules when you conduct your business that way and you should expect that there will be consequences,” Wasserman Schultz said.”
Perhaps we should remind you about Imran Awan, and his brothers – Pakistanis, by the way — who somehow were paid in the millions of dollars as IT specialists for several Democrat members of the House of Representatives, some of whom are members of the select intelligence committee.
There’s no chasing of windmills here, these brothers actually were handling classified information, and let me explain something, Capitol Hill IT specialists do not make $4 million!
“The investigation is examining members’ data leaving the network and how Awan managed to get Members to place three relatives and a friend into largely no-show positions on their payrolls, billing $4 million since 2010.”
And as for the claim by Rep. Wasserman-Schultz claiming that she should have “her” computer returned…actually, this is property of the US taxpayer.
“A federal employee with knowledge of the situation and who requested anonymity told The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group that as House authorities closed in on Imran Awan and his brothers, a laptop used by Imran was hidden in an unused crevice of the Rayburn House Office Building. Wasserman Schultz’s office is in Longworth House Office Building, a separate structure. The laptop was later found by Capitol Police and seized because it was relevant to the criminal investigation, the source said.”
So based on this, the computer equipment in question — for which Rep. Wasserman-Schultz offered an open threat of “consequences” — was not confiscated from her office, but discovered secretly stashed in a completely different House office building. My question for Ms. Wasserman-Schultz is, what was the equipment of her Congressional office doing hidden in a crevice in the Rayburn building? And, why was this equipment, which had classified information, not in a secure location? Seems we have another case similar to the Hillary Clinton private email server with classified information debacle. But hey, you’re not going to hear about this being covered by the liberal progressive media.
Furthermore, “Though on the surface Wasserman Schultz would have been a victim of Awan’s scam, she has inexplicably protected him, circumventing the network ban by re-titling him as an “adviser” instead of technology administrator. Politico described him and his wife, Hina Alvi, as having a “friendly personal relationship” with both Wasserman Schultz and Rep. Gregory Meeks of New York. That baffled a Democratic IT staffer, who said “I can’t imagine why she’d be that good of friends with a technology provider.” “Usually if someone does bad stuff, an office is going to distance themselves” rather than incur political fallout for a mere staffer, he added.”
Yes, why is it that a US Representative is taking such a defensive stance over an IT staffer, and why contradict a law enforcement order, a ban, against Imran Awan, and still seek his services? Now, my lovely so very intellectual, logical, and reasonable progressive socialist chuckleheads, would you call this “collusion?” Please, ‘splain this one to us, we are waiting, ok, here it comes…crickets.
Here in lies why the progressive socialist left is failing. Regardless of how much they rant and continue to run stories about President Trump, they are liars. And unfortunately for them, we can seek out truth and bring their lies to the light. There should be a special prosecutor assigned, not for Donald Trump, but for this security breach and the relationship of the Awan brothers, and wife, with some nine different Democrat members of the House of Representatives. So we have a former Democrat president, Obama, who abused his power and used intelligence agencies, illegally and unconstitutionally, to conduct unwarranted surveillance on American citizens. We also have a massive security breach involving several Democrat congressional members and some $5 million of US taxpayer funds.
Yep, this is FUBAR!
