In a joint Department of Justice (DOJ) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) far-reaching investigation, members of the Arizona National Guard, including military recruiters were discovered working as “muscle” and “traffickers” for Mexican drug gangs, according to a report on Friday from the DOJ. About 12 National Guard were identified as suspects in one of the FBI’s biggest government corruption cases ever, which was almost totally ignored by government officials in Washington and major national news outlets

On Friday in federal court, a non-commissioned officer (non-com) with the border-state Arizona’s Army National Guard was sentenced to federal prison for his role in protecting drug traffickers by using his military position to provide security for shipments of cocaine being transported from Mexico into the United States, according to U.S. Justice Department’s Criminal Division and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) officials.

Sgt. Raul Portillo, who listed Phoenix, Arizona, but was suspected of living in Mexico, entered a guilty plea to one count of conspiracy to commit bribery and interfere with commerce by attempted extortion. U.S. District Judge James A. Soto of the District of Arizona imposed a sentence of only four years in federal prison.

According to his allocution before Judge Soto, the 34-year-old Portillo, a sergeant and recruiter in the Arizona Army National Guard, conspired with others from the National Guard to moonlight as protection for Mexican narcotics traffickers transporting and distributing cocaine to other locations in the southwestern United States. However, at one point during an FBI and military law enforcement sting operation the narcotics traffickers turned out to be undercover agents.

Although Portillo was identified by the FBI as a suspect, he mysteriously was never charged and he allegedly fled to Mexico. “In the case of Portillo, as well as other soldiers and sailors involved in criminal enterprises, the Defense Department and law enforcement agencies appear to be complicit in covering up the crime and misconduct cases involving enlisted ‘undocumented immigrants,’” said former NYPD police officer Iris Aquino. “If they’re undocumented, how do you know they’re not criminals or terrorists signing up to serve in the U.S. military?” she asked.

Once the November elections were over, President Barack Obama’s program appeared to be replacing American citizens, who are being terminated from their military units with illegal aliens in all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces, and the Pentagon is once again seeking to attract so-called undocumented recruits in the next several weeks, according to Military Times. Yet, neither the White House nor the Justice Department will acknowledge how many of the up to 58 National Guard troops arrested are immigrants.

According to his confession, Portillo admitted that he wore his official uniform, carried official forms of identification and weapons, used official military vehicles, in addition to using his official authority to bypass police stops and searches. He also drove through law enforcement checkpoints manned by agents from U.S. Border Patrol, officers from the Arizona Department of Public Safety, and Nevada law enforcement officers.

Portillo also confessed to taking payments totaling $12,000 for his transport and protection services for two large cocaine shipments. Portillo also shocked those hearing his allocution when he told the sentencing judge that he was paid a bonus of $2,000 by a Mexican drug gang for his success in recruiting an Immigration and Customs Enforcement inspector. To date, 58 defendants have been convicted and sentenced for charges stemming from this investigation and it’s believed they will be more arrests and convictions.

Congressional Democrats PAID BY IRANIAN LOBBY to support Obama’s nuke deal

Screen Shot 2015-09-04 at 5.22.26 PM

Every senator who accepted money from the Iranian American Political Action Committee (IPAC) should be impeached and removed from office — or at very least, soundly defeated the next time he or she comes up for reelection. But the enemedia, true to form, will cover for them and do everything it can to keep them on the government payroll.

“Gillibrand and other pro-Dealers got Iran cash,” by Jeff Dunetz, The Jewish Star, September 3, 2015 (thanks to Banafsheh):

One of the many unanswered questions about P5+1 agreement with Iran is why so many Congressional Democrats are rallying behind the President on this issue when recent polls show the majority of Americans want Congress to reject the deal.

Part of the reason is obvious: they are supporting a president from their own party, but a not-so-obvious reason may be that there is a “nefarious” lobby trying to control American foreign policy, and for a change the anti-Semites can’t blame the Jews. Iranian lobbyists are making big campaign donations to Democrats and are funding pro-deal propaganda.

Writing in Front Page Magazine, Daniel Greenfield pointed out that many of the Democratic legislators who announced their support for the deal are getting money from the Iran lobby, specifically the Iranian American Political Action Committee, IPAC, which maxed out its contributions to Senator Ed Markey (D-MA) and Al Franken (D-Minn) — each received $5,000 in the 2014 election cycle.

“Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), the Iran lobby’s third Dem senator, didn’t bother playing coy like her colleagues. She came out for the deal a while back even though she only got half the IAPAC cash that Franken and Markey received.”

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), who represents the state with the largest Jewish population in America, surprised many with her support of the deal. In addition to IAPAC cash, “Gillibrand had also picked up money from the Iran lobby’s Hassan Nemazee,” Greenfield reports. “Nemazee was Hillary’s national campaign finance director who had raised a fortune for both her and Kerry before pleading guilty to a fraud scheme encompassing hundreds of millions of dollars. Nemazee had been an IAPAC trustee and had helped set up the organization.”

Barbara Boxer, who also came out for the deal, also Iran lobby funds.

Getting IPAC cash on the House side were Mike Honda (D-CA), Andre Carson (D-IN), Gerry Connolly (D-VA), Donna Edwards (D-MD) and Jackie Speier (D-CA). Each of them supports Obama’s P5+1 turkey.

But the Iran lobby’s biggest wins weren’t Markey or Shaheen. The real victory had come long before when two of their biggest politicians, Joe Biden and John Kerry, had moved into prime positions in the administration. Not only IAPAC, but key Iran lobby figures had been major donors to both men.

“That list includes Housang Amirahmadi, the founder of the American Iranian Council, who had spoken of a campaign to ‘conquer Obama’s heart and mind’ and had described himself as ‘the Iranian lobby in the United States.’ It includes the Iranian Muslim Association of North America (IMAN) board members who had fundraised for Biden. And it includes the aforementioned Hassan Nemazee.

“A member of Iran’s opposition had accused Biden’s campaigns of being ‘financed by Islamic charities of the Iranian regime based in California and by the Silicon Iran network.’ Biden’s affinity for the terrorist regime in Tehran was so extreme that after 9/11 he had suggested, ‘Seems to me this would be a good time to send, no strings attached, a check for $200 million to Iran’.

Another part of the Iran lobby pushing the deal is the Ploughshares Fund. Ploughshares is not pushing the deal directly, but it’s financing many of the other groups pushing Congress to vote “yes.” Michael Rubin exposed the Plowshares money in a recent Commentary piece.

According to Rubin, Ploughshares Fund is “a multimillion-dollar group which defines itself as a foundation seeking nuclear disarmament but which has, for several years, taken a consistently apologetic line toward Iran.” Ploughshares has been throwing its weight behind influential organizations such as the National Iranian American Council, the Arms Control Association, and the Atlantic Council, among others, in an attempt to garner support for the deal, Rubin reported.

Ploughshares gave $150,000 to the National Iranian American Council for “advocacy” about the Iran Deal, $210,000 to the Arms Control Association to “influence US policy toward Iran,” and another $25,000 to fund an “expert workshop” and press briefings, according to Rubin.

Per its annual report, Ploughshares also gives money to the anti-Israel group, J Street ($100,000) that has not only fought additional sanctions over recent years but also that has worked to promote the Iran agreement. J Street’s support also comes from the fact that it was President Obama, not the Jewish community who gave the group legitimacy.

“In short, Ploughshares spread millions of dollars around to pro-administration groups to support whatever Iran Deal came out of Vienna. To criticize the Iran Deal would be to risk a significant source of funding—double digits percentages of their total budget in most cases—of these various groups,”

Organizations receiving funding from Ploughshares rarely acknowledge they’re being lobbied. They produce biased analysis and host one-sided panel discussions in order to advance the agenda they are being paid to move forward.

“Hence, various organizations hosted one-sided panels in the wake of the Iran Deal announcement with multiple Ploughshares grantees without acknowledging their funding from the Ploughshares grantees.”

At various times during the debate about his Iran agreement, President Obama has talked about nefarious lobby money pushing against peace. Something that many have commented was a not-so-veiled reference to the anti-Semitic meme that some hidden “Jewish lobby” controls the government.

The lobby that neither the president nor the congressional supporters of his deal will talk about is the pro-Iranian lobby that, either through campaign cash or directly in support of the deal, are a huge force in trying to give Obama his short-term legacy, the P5+1 agreement.

Long-term, that deal may very well be remembered by the ultimate war to end all wars waged by an apocalyptic Iran.

VIDEO: Muslim Women Caught Hiding THIS In Her Hijab…DISTURBING

An alert bystander switched on his video phone as the woman was checking out with just a few items. As she went through the register, store officials called her over. Apparently, they had seen her taking quite a few more items than she paid for.

What’s worse, she put them under her hijab to conceal them from shopkeepers.

The woman put up some desultory resistance, but the man and the woman who apparently ran security at the supermarket were having none of it. They began pulling item after item out of the woman’s hijab, dropping them on the ground. Whistles of disbelief can be heard in the background.

This comes at a time when our country is having a major debate over the role ofthe hijab in our society. Our assumption is that if we give people the right to wear religious headgear in situations where they wouldn’t ordinarily be able to, they won’t necessarily abuse it.

Especially given the fact that Illinois lets women wear the hijab or burqa for driver’s license photos, at least partially concealing their face and hair, this isn’t a hypothetical situation.

Nifty Chart Shows Income Tax Difference in 1913 and 2015

BY JASON W. STEVENS

The first tax bill came from the Woodrow Wilson administration in 1913. Wilson made the income tax a key part of his electoral campaign (the Republican party platform of 1912 did not mention the income take [sic]). …

Supporters of the new amendment called it “a victory for social justice and reform.” The press, however, openly debated the topic in 1913:

The Philadelphia Public Ledger: “Income taxes give rise to mendacity, to espionage, and to inquisitions that are vexatious, but they have one great virtue: direct taxes bring home… the meaning of taxation and of expensive governmental undertakings with certainty and power”
The St. Louis Globe-Democrat: “This is the most objectionable of all forms of taxes.”
The New York Herald: “Wrong in principle and un-American in Spirit.”
The Springfield Republican: “The Sixteenth Amendment owes its existence mainly to the West and South, where individual incomes of $5,000 or over are comparatively few.”
The Evening Mail: “He has a mean spirit who objects to an income tax.” …

Richard Byrd, the Speaker of the Virginia House of Delegates in 1913, gave a harsh prediction of what he imagined income tax would become:A hand from Washington will be stretched out and placed upon every man’s business; the eye of the Federal inspector will be in every man’s counting house. The law will of necessity have inquisitorial features, it will provide penalties, it will create complicated machinery. Under it men will be hailed into courts distant from their homes.

Heavy fines imposed by distant and unfamiliar tribunals will constantly menace the tax payer. An army of Federal inspectors, spies and detectives will descend upon the state. Who of us who have had knowledge of the doings of the Federal officials in the Internal Revenue service can be blind to what will follow?

What do you think of this?

Violent Black Mob Attacks Cop Screaming “We Need To Start Killing These Officers…”

A crowd of thugs beat up a police officer in Madison, Wisconsin simply for doing his job. This anti-law enforcement garbage is totally out of control.

The officer spotted a large number of people in the street and witnessed an irate black lady punch a man in the face. The officer also noticed that the woman had a container of pepper spray.

The officer went into the violent crowd to arrest the woman while the thugs were screaming threats including “WE NEED TO START KILLING THESE OFFICERS!” These people are the worst of the worst. What kind of scumbags want to kill the police? I know the answer- Barack Obama’s people.

The woman’s daughter interfered with the officer while he was attempting to arrest the mother and was grabbing him and the mother actually punched the officer in the face and grabbed him by the throat.

People in the crowd were recording the altercation while screaming obscenities toward the officer. And of course they called it police brutality. (H/T Channel 3000)

The thugs tried to get the officers gun but failed, thank God.

The 2 women were arrested and repeatedly threatened to kill the officer while being driven to the Police station.

This is the new America. Times have changed in a horrific way since Obama entered the picture. This mother is the biggest scumbag. Way to teach your children how to behave. You are a sickening worthless specimen. Just unbelievable.
