    U.S. Links Charity to Chechen RebelsBy Nabi Abdullaev Staff Writer The head of a U.S.-based Islamic charity who is suspected of having ties to Osama bin Laden is in jail facing a grand jury investigation after the FBI showed he had lied about his support for Chechen rebels. Federal officials accused Enaam Arnaout, a Syrian-born U.S. citizen, and his Benevolence International Foundation of perjury last month for claiming they did not provide support to "people or organizations known to engage in violence, terrorist activities or military operations of any nature." Arnaout, 39, was arrested April 30. He had been under...

    Former US President Bill Clinton admitted Tuesday that he intervened in the Israeli elections in 1996 to help then-Prime Minister Shimon Peres defeat rival Binyamin Netanyahu. "It would be fair to say that I tried to help Peres win the elections, and I tried to help him in such a way that I would not be openly involved," Clinton said in an interview with Israel's Channel 10 News. "I tried to help him, because I thought he was a bigger supporter of the peace process, and I tried to do it in a way that served, in my opinion, Israel's...

    Radical left-wing icon former California Democratic Rep. Ron Dellums was a hired lobbyist for Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Russian lawyer who met with Donald Trump Jr. June 9, 2016, the Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group has learned. Dellums, who represented liberal San Francisco and Oakland, Calif., is a long-time darling of left-wing political activists. He served 13 terms in Congress as an African-American firebrand and proudly called himself a socialist. He retired in 1996. The former congressman is one of several high-profile Democratic partisans who was on Veselnitskaya’s payroll, working to defeat a law that is the hated object of...

    NEW YORK –– Attorney General Janet Reno has decided not to name a special prosecutor to investigate the 1996 fund-raising activities of Vice President Al Gore, The New York Times reported Wednesday. Reno has rejected the recommendation of the head of the Justice Department's campaign finance unit, Robert J. Conrad Jr., which marks the third time that Reno has rejected such a recommendation to investigate Gore, the newspaper said. The Times reported that Conrad was the only prosecutor in the department who thought there would be a need for an independent counsel. The vice president has repeatedly maintained that he...

    AP: FBI Sent Hamas Money in Clinton Days JOHN SOLOMON Associated Press WASHINGTON - While President Clinton was trying to broker an elusive peace between Israelis and Palestinians, the FBI was secretly funneling money to suspected Hamas figures to see if the militant group would use it for terrorist attacks, according to interviews and court documents. The counterterrorism operation in 1998 and 1999 was run out of the FBI's Phoenix office in cooperation with Israeli intelligence and was approved by Attorney General Janet Reno, FBI officials told The Associated Press. Several thousand dollars in U.S. money was sent to suspected...

    Former Intelligence Operative Says Author of Phoenix Memo Endangered His Life By Jacques Billeaud Associated Press Writer Published: May 23, 2002 PHOENIX (AP) - A former U.S. intelligence operative alleges in a court document that the FBI agent who wrote the memo warning about Arabs training in U.S. fight schools endangered his life three years ago by blowing his cover. Two Arizona congressmen and a former U.S. senator made inquiries on Harry Ellen's behalf about his complaints about the agency and Special Agent Kenneth Williams. The FBI reviewed the complaints but determined they did not warrant an investigation. Williams has...

The information is allegedly contained in a laptop, dozens of DVDs, audiocassettes and the pages of diaries, seized by the RCMP officers who met Zaynab Khadr at Pearson airport with a search warrant as she arrived back in Canada in February, court documents state. Khadr is the eldest daughter of a family that has...

    In a January 5th 1996 teletype to select FBI field offices, FBI Director Louis Freeh revealed that the Southern Poverty Law Center, the radical left wing group run by civil rights lawyer Morris Dees, had an informant living in Elohim City, a white supremacist compound whose inhabitants have been closely linked to the Oklahoma City bombing. And that informant was dutifully reporting to Bill Clinton’s FBI. (1) It’s thanks to Salt Lake City attorney Jesse Trentadue that we have this information, which proves “…the SPLC was engaged in an undercover role where they monitored subjects for the FBI believed to...

    The gunman who opened fire on a group of Republican Congressman and their staffers on Wednesday morning in Washington DC was once a foster parent to two teenage girls. James Hodgkinson and his wife Suzanne brought Wanda Ashley Stock into their home back in the summer of 1996, enrolling the young girl at the nearby Belleville East High School. Two months into the school year however, the 17-year-old committed suicide in a painful and gruesome manner, dousing her body in gasoline and then lighting herself on fire as she sat in her car on the side of the road. She...

    Hodgkinson had a history of violence that did not rise to the level to prohibit him from legally owning a firearm. He was the foster father of at least two girls. The first, Wanda Ashley Stock, 17, committed suicide in 1996 by pouring gasoline on herself and setting herself on fire after a few months of living with the Hodgkinsons, the Belleville News-Democrat reports. The Hodgkinsons gave an interview to the paper after her suicide, calling her a “very practical, level-headed girl.”

    American Thinker ^ | June 20, 2016 | Jack Cashill
    When I see former FBI New York honcho Jim Kallstrom appear on Fox News, I see a tortured soul. As boldly honest as he has been on the subject of Islamic terrorism, this once honorable man has lived a lie for the last twenty years on the subject of TWA Flight 800. Others have lived the lie as well, but none so personally. It was Kallstrom who spoke to the press, Kallstrom who testified at congressional hearings, Kallstrom who consoled the families of the 230 dead with the assurance he would leave “no stone unturned” in his pursuit of the...

    Obama’s national security advisor is a liar -- and possibly a felon.Former President Obama’s National Security Advisor Susan Rice asked for the names of Trump transition officials to be unmasked and made public in raw intelligence files, according to media reports, a move apparently carried out to harm the incoming Trump administration. As recently as March 22, Rice denied knowing anything about the intelligence reports. In an appearance on “PBS Newshour,” she said pretty definitely, “I know nothing about this.” The new news reports paint Rice as a liar. The evidence we know about in the Trump-Russia saga so far...

    Americans were told the 9/11 Commission looking into the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, was to recommend changes in policy and law to protect us from future terrorist attacks. So why was the commission used as a partisan attack vehicle? And why did they ignore, hide and not print a single word of possibly the most important information released to them by the small, highly classified Pentagon intelligence unit called Able Danger? Did President Bill Clinton's deputy attorney, Jaime Gorelick, really think the U.S. military would allow this information to be ignored again? Was Gorelick too busy yelling insults at...

    Dear friends, It is very important to not only pray a lot but also to keep our eyes open for the very powerful and devastating traps of Satan, which are very well camouflaged and disguised “as an angel of light” (2Cor 11:14). Due to the greatest lack of prayer and lack of regard for the holy Laws of God today, we have given great influence to the “powers of evil” (CCC 409) to be able do deceive us! A great number of people today have taken the easy way of “ignorance is bliss”, imagining that the truth and reality are...

    Joseph Goebbels said, famously, "The only real friend one has in the end is the dog. . . . The more I get to know the human species, the more I care for my Benno." As historians Arnold Arluke and Boria Sax put it, "The Nazis abolished moral distinctions between animals and people by viewing people as animals. The result was that animals could be considered `higher' than some people." The blond Aryan beast of Nietzsche represented animality at the top available grade, at one with wild nature. Aryans and animals were allied in a struggle against the contaminators, the...

    The facts are really very simple. In the 1996 presidential campaign and during the Clinton Monicagate investigation, the Chinese government paid a total of about Seventy Seven Million Dollars in bribes and payoffs to the Clintons. The payoffs served three purposes for the Clintons, and one for the PRC. First, the Clintons were worried about funding the 1996 general election. The 1994 Congressional election had been a disaster for the Democrats. The House of Representatives experienced a 54 seat swing in favor of Newt and his team. The House went from solidly Democrat to firmly Republican. In 1996, America was...

The Freeh teletype also revealed that Tim McVeigh, executed in 2001 for the murder of 168 people in Oklahoma City, had telephoned Elohim City asking that German national Andreas Strassmeir provide more assistance in completing the bomb which devastated the Alfred P.

    History does repeat itself. On November 5, the American people re-elected Bill Clinton to a second term in the face of allegations of serious abuses of power by the President and members of his administration. Like the allegations about the break-in at the Watergate Hotel that George McGovern unsuccessfully tried to raise during the 1972 election, the allegations about the Clinton administration’s abuses of power failed to capture the attention of the American people–partly due to the failure of Clinton’s rivals, Bob Dole and Ross Perot, to raise the issue until very late in the campaign, and partly–indeed, largely–due to...
