Exclusive to TGR:
“It’s a bloodbath at the State Department,” the New York Post hyperventilated last Friday: “Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is cleaning house at the State Department, according to a report.” In Donald Trump’s America, so much has happened so quickly to set the nation on a course decisively different from the one it was on during the regime of his disastrous socialist internationalist predecessor that this particular bit of good news was largely overlooked. But if a housecleaning at the State Department isn’t a cause for celebration, nothing is.
“Many of those let go were on the building’s seventh floor — top-floor bigs,” the Post tells us, and adds that this is “a symbolically important sign to the rest of the diplomatic corps that their new boss has different priorities than the last one.”
Pop the champagne!
And not only that, but “this week’s round of firings marks the second time State Department personnel have been cleared out since President Trump took office last month. Four top officials were cleared out of the building at the end of January.”
Break out the hats and hooters!
We can only hope that with the departure of these failed State Department officials, their failed policies will be swept out along with them. Chief among these is the almost universally held idea that poverty causes terrorism. The United States has wasted uncounted (literally, because a great deal of it was in untraceable bags full of cash) billions of dollars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Egypt, and other countries in the wrongheaded assumption that Muslims turn to jihad because they lack economic opportunities and education. American officials built schools and hospitals, thinking that they were winning over the hearts and minds of the locals.
Fifteen years, thousands of lives and hundreds of billions of dollars later, no significant number of hearts and minds have been won. This is partly because the premise is wrong. The New York Times reported in March that “not long after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001…Alan B. Krueger, the Princeton economist, tested the widespread assumption that poverty was a key factor in the making of a terrorist. Mr. Krueger’s analysis of economic figures, polls, and data on suicide bombers and hate groups found no link between economic distress and terrorism.”
CNS News noted in September 2013 that “according to a Rand Corporation report on counterterrorism, prepared for the Office of the Secretary of Defense in 2009, ‘Terrorists are not particularly impoverished, uneducated, or afflicted by mental disease. Demographically, their most important characteristic is normalcy (within their environment). Terrorist leaders actually tend to come from relatively privileged backgrounds.’ One of the authors of the RAND report, Darcy Noricks, also found that according to a number of academic studies, ‘Terrorists turn out to be more rather than less educated than the general population.’”
Yet the analysis that poverty causes terrorism has been applied and reapplied and reapplied again. The swamp is in dire need of draining, and in other ways as well. Ever since 2011, it has been official Obama administration policy to deny any connection between Islam and terrorism. This came as a result of an October 19, 2011 letter from Farhana Khera of Muslim Advocates to John Brennan, who was then the Assistant to the President on National Security for Homeland Security and Counter Terrorism, and later served in the Obama administration as head of the CIA. The letter was signed not just by Khera, but by the leaders of virtually all the significant Islamic groups in the United States: 57 Muslim, Arab, and South Asian organizations, many with ties to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, including the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the Muslim American Society (MAS), the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), Islamic Relief USA; and the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC).
The Islamization of Germany in 2016
“Germany is no longer safe.”
- Mass migration from the Muslim world is fast-tracking the Islamization of Germany, as evidenced by the proliferation of no-go zones, Sharia courts, polygamy and child marriages. Mass migration has also been responsible for a host of social disruptions, including jihadist attacks, a migrant rape epidemic, a public health crisis, rising crime and a rush by German citizens to purchase weapons for self-defense — and even to abandon Germany altogether.
- Development Minister Gerd Müller warned that the biggest refugee movements to Europe are still to come. He said that only 10% of the migrants from the chaos in Iraq and Syria have reached Europe so far: “Eight to ten million migrants are still on the way.”
- “There are written instructions … today we are not allowed to say anything negative about the refugees. This is government journalism, and this leads to a situation in which the public loses their trust in us. This is scandalous.” — Wolfgang Herles, Deutschlandfunk public radio.
- The Turkish government has sent 970 clerics — most of whom do not speak German — to lead 900 mosques in Germany that are controlled by the Turkish-Islamic Union for Religious Affairs (DITIB), a branch of the Turkish government’s Directorate for Religious Affairs, known in Turkish as Diyanet. Critics accuse Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of using DITIB mosques to prevent Turkish migrants from integrating into German society.
We have all heard the news today regarding the FBI reopening the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails because of “thousands” of emails they have discovered while investigating Anthony Weiner in his sexting scandal with an underage 15 year old girl. As many of you know, Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin, Hillary’s chief aide, are married (separated since his most recent sexting scandal broke several months ago).These emails must have some highly sensitive or secret information in them for the FBI to go to the extreme measure of reopening Hillary’s email investigation. During the original investigation numerous emails were discovered in Hillary’s emails that were classified SAP (Special Access Programs) dailycaller.com/2016/01/19/report-emails-at-the-highest-classification-levels-found-on-hillarys-private-server/ SAP’s contain information on ongoing covert operations and operators which, if disclosed, endanger the lives of those who are working “under cover” and compromise ongoing operations.The news has been non stop since it broke this afternoon. What the media (even Fox), is not mentioning is the fact that Hillary’s chief aide, Huma Abedin, is a Muslim and both her mother and father have high positions in the Muslim Brotherhood and are actively involved in a Islamic magazine that promotes Sharia Law throughout the world. Huma, herself, was an associate editor of this same magazine.Why should it matter that Huma,who handles highly sensitive information as Hillary’s closest aide, has a questionable family background? That information should be known to the American public but no one in the media is daring to mention the fact. Dare I say “political correctness” or not wanting to “offend” Islam.

VIDEO – PRAGER U IS ISLAM A RELIGION OF PEACE ?
|In the aftermath of every attack committed by Muslims in the name of Islam we are exhorted not to blame Islam itself, because it is “a religion of peace” that has been hijacked by people doing violence for their own reasons. Is this explanation accurate? Not according to author and activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali, and she would know: she was raised a practicing Muslim. In this week’s video, she explains that the call to violent jihad is contained in the Qu’ran, and that violent acts in the name of Islam cannot be divorced from the religion itself. On what grounds does she make this claim? And what can be done about it? Watch the video here to find out.
