“The first batch is reasonably soon”
SEPTEMBER 7, 2016
During an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity last night, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange suggested that the organization could drop its long promised Hillary Clinton bombshell as soon as next week.
Asked by Hannity how soon the new information would be released, Assange responded, “The first batch is reasonably soon, we’re quite confident about it now, we might put out some teasers – I don’t want to promise anything because you have to see how the formatting goes – but we might put out some teasers as early as the next week or the week after.”
New revelations from Wikileaks are widely expected to represent the much anticipated “October surprise” for the 2016 presidential election, although the information could arrive weeks in advance.
Last month, Assange told Megyn Kelly that the new material on Clinton could swing the outcome of the election “if it catches fire” and that the American people “have a right to understand who it is they’re electing”.
As we previously reported, establishment media outlets are already gearing up to blame the Wikileaks data dump on Russian hackers in an attempt to neutralize its impact.
Elsewhere in the interview, Assange pointed out how Hillary Clinton brazenly lied to the FBI when she claimed she couldn’t remember what a (C) stood for on classified documents.
“In fact we have already released thousands of cables by Hillary Clinton. Here she is “Clinton” see, that’s her signature. With a “c” in brackets right there. We have thousands of examples where she, herself has used this “c” in brackets and signed it off. And more than 22,000 times that she has received cables from others with this “c” in brackets,” said Assange as he held up an example to the camera.
Over the last few months Facebook has been in the news often, and for reasons other than its latest stock value. This past May, Fox News reported on 10 instances where conservatives were singled out for censorship, and this after Facebook’s own internal investigation in which it claimed to have found no evidence of overt anti-conservative bias. However, after several more revelations of censoring conservative content, Facebook admitted that there had been some censoring of conservative content — but only by a few workers. The problem is, Facebook’s anti-conservative bias hasn’t changed.
A recent example is that of middle school teacher Stephan Neidenbach, who founded a Facebook page entitled “We Love GMOs and Vaccines.” To his surprise he later found the page had been removed by Facebook censors, because it offended some anti-GMO and anti-vaccine activists. National Review recounts, “Despite the fact that no polices were violated, [Facebook] acquiesced to [the activists’] demands and deactivated the page. … Neidenbach was subsequently banned from the platform for 30 days.”
This is yet another example of Facebook’s bias against conservative pages, whether they be pro-Second Amendment, conservative news or opposed to a variety of liberal issues. Facebook clearly seeks to tilt the public’s views on cultural and political issues away from a conservative perspective and toward leftist and socialist ones. No matter how much it may deny its bias, Facebook is a powerful platform that aims to promote and normalize a leftist worldview.
In an interview with Breitbart National Security Editor Dr. Sebastian Gorka, Fox News host Sean Hannity showed a video compilation of President Obama’s staunch defense and praise of Islam over the years contrasted with his critical comments about Christianity.
Hannity introduced the video clip during a discussion of Obama’s refusal to use the term “radical Islam” to identify the enemy – a refusal which he doubled down on in a speech on Tuesday that Gorka described as “petulant” and “outrageous.”
“[Obama] said that, ‘What difference does it make what we call it?’ Well, what if you went to a doctor’s clinic with a serious illness, you had tuberculosis, and the doctor says, ‘I’m going to call what you have the flu or a common cold. Here’s a couple of aspirins. Go home,’” Gorka explained.
Watch the video above.
Below is a partial transcript:
SEAN HANNITY: Here with reaction, author of Defeating Jihad: The Winnable War, the distinguished chair of military theory at Marine Corps University, Dr. Sebastian Gorka.
Let’s look at this attack. Let’s look at it from a law enforcement standpoint. Here they had all the information about this guy. He said he was part of al Qaeda. He said he was part of Hezbollah, cheered on 9/11, all these indicators, on a watch list, taken off a watch list. Big mistake?
SEBASTIAN GORKA: Well, clearly, it is a big mistake because this man has killed 49 Americans. Yes, we don’t know exactly how the decision was made. I work with members of the FBI, and they’re good people. They’re patriots.
Most of the big problems we’ve seen in the last seven years come out of the DOJ. It’s the DOJ that puts the political correctness matrix on top of the FBI.
HANNITY: OK. If the FBI, the DOJ, Homeland Security — if they knew about the Orlando terrorist, they ultimately did nothing. They didn’t follow up on the guy. You know, are we supposed to believe that the Syrian refugees that the president wants to bring into the country and Hillary Clinton wants to bring into the country that they say they can vet properly, even though our intelligence officials say ISIS will infiltrate — how dangerous is that?
GORKA: Hugely dangerous. ISIS has stated in their English language publications, Sean, that they will and they are using the refugee streams. We saw in Europe, we saw people using false Syrian passports exploiting the refugee streams to execute the attacks that were just like the attack in Orlando. So we don’t have to hypothesize. It’s happened already, and they say they want to do more.
HANNITY: One of the things I like about your book is you say we can defeat jihad. OK, we have Chattanooga, we have Boston, we have San Bernardino, now we have Orlando. We had Belgium. We had Paris.
We don’t seem to be winning this war, and a president that is hell-bent and passionately today saying he doesn’t have to say or identify radical Islam for what it is.
GORKA: But passionate in his petulance. That speech was outrageous!
HANNITY: That’s a great line. He was petulant today.
GORKA: Totally! He said that, “What difference does it make what we call it?” Well, what if you went to a doctor’s clinic with a serious illness, you had tuberculosis, and the doctor says, “I’m going to call what you have the flu or a common cold. Here’s a couple of aspirins. Go home.”
HANNITY: What if in World War II, we didn’t identify Nazism for what it is or imperial Japan for the enemy that they are?
GORKA: This is — this is…
HANNITY: Or Reagan saying the evil empire!
GORKA: Right. This is when you have to bring Americans together. Those people weren’t gay people, they were Americans!
HANNITY: By the way, under sharia, radical Islamists, if it was a group of women dancing…
HANNITY: … they would feel justified in doing this.
GORKA: Right, listening to music.
HANNITY: Listening to music.
GORKA: The Taliban banned music in Afghanistan!
HANNITY: All right, I’m trying to understand, it’s pathological at this point to me, the president, Hillary Clinton and the Democrats…
GORKA: It is.
HANNITY: It’s inexplicable. It’s — you know, I don’t understand this mysterious reluctance and resistance to identify an enemy.
I want to play some things for you. Let’s first go to The New York Times’s Nicholas Kristof and they talked about Obama when he was in a Muslim school. He said, “He recalled” — in a first rate accent, by the way — “the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer, reciting them with a first rate accent in a remark that seemed delightfully uncalculated, and it’ll give Alabama voters a heart attack, but Mr. Obama described the call to Muslim prayer as one of the prettiest sounds on earth at sunset.”
Now, I’m going to play for you back to back his comments about Islam and his comments about Christianity, and I want you to respond. Let’s roll the tape.

BARACK OBAMA, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: The United States is not and will never be at war with Islam.
And I’m also proud to carry with me the goodwill of the American people and a greeting of peace from Muslim communities in my country, As Salaam Aleikum.
Islam is not part of the problem in combating violent extremism, it is an important part of promoting peace.
Our enemies respect no religious freedom. Al Qaeda’s cause is not Islam. It’s a gross distortion of Islam.
The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.
ISIL is not Islamic. No religion condones the killing of innocents, and the vast majority of ISIL’s victims have been Muslim.
We’ve reaffirmed again and again the United States is not and never will be at war with Islam. Islam teaches peace.
Remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ. Slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ.
On Easter, I do reflect on the fact that as a Christian, I am supposed to love, and I have to say that sometimes, when I listen to less than loving expressions by Christians, I get concerned.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
HANNITY: He won’t say “radical Islam.” You heard his comments about Islam, terrible deeds in the name of Christ.
GORKA: Horrific! What nation are we? Who were the Founding Fathers? What Creator are they referring to in our founding documents? Are they referring to Allah or some nameless blob? No. They’re referring to the God of the New Testament.
HANNITY: Judeo-Christian values.
GORKA: Absolutely! Why is the sympathy always for the other? Why is America the problem, Sean?
HANNITY: OK, now let’s add to this an Iranian deal where you give the number one state sponsor of terror $150 billion. Let’s add to that American bloodshed for Ramadi and Mosul and Fallujah and Tikrit. Let’s add to that Muhammad Morsi, former head of the Muslim Brotherhood, a terrorist organization, becomes the head, the president of Egypt, and he gives them tanks, F-16s and $1 billion-plus, a guy that referred to the Israelis as descendants of apes and pigs.
He’s on the wrong side all of the time!
GORKA: And when a man comes along who’s a Muslim who says, I’m not letting the [Muslim] Brotherhood steal my country — I’ve met President Sisi. What do we do? We reject him!
HANNITY: President Sisi had has more courage to stand up to radicalism than the president of the United States!
GORKA: He’s on the front lines.
HANNITY: But here’s my question. Why? What is it?
GORKA: Look, let’s leave conspiracy theories to the side.
HANNITY: It’s not a conspiracy! It’s inexplicable to me!
GORKA: I’ll give you the explanation. This man comes from a certain ideological background, OK? His buddy was Bill Ayers. He grew up with a certain…
HANNITY: Bernadine Dohrn…
HANNITY: … Reverend Wright…
HANNITY: … ACORN, Alinsky…
HANNITY: … Frank Marshall Davis.
GORKA: And what’s the common denominator? America is the problem. Whatever the issue is, we are the problem. And as a result, he’s always going to sympathize with who? The bad guys. This idea that this guy had a twisted sexual identity in Orlando, he was suffering — we’re going to make the perpetrator out to be the victim eventually! It’s unconscionable, Sean!
HANNITY: I don’t think anybody else in the media will put that together, what we just did.
GORKA: No. And I’m glad you did it. That’s powerful.
HANNITY: Sebastian, good to see you. Thank you.
GORKA: Thank you, Sean.

Sunday in an appearance on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends Weekend,” former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich (R-GA) reacted to the mass shooting early Sunday resulting in 50 dead and 53 injured at a night club in Orlando, FL.
Gingrich specifically commented on the reluctance by some to categorize the shooting as Islamic terrorism despite the shooter having been identified as Omar Sateen, a 29-year-old son of Afghan parents that allegedly had pledged allegiance to ISIS.
“The elites in this country are intentionally dishonest,” Gingrich said. “That’s part of why you have the rise of Trump and Sanders. People know that the game is rigged. They don’t want to tell us the truth about the world, they don’t want to tell us the truth about trade deals, they don’t want to tell us the truth about who is getting payoffs in Washington, and they don’t want to tell us the truth about Islamic terrorism. That shouldn’t shock anybody — Why would you expect The Washington Post and New York Times to be honest about anything?

New Age guru and alternative medicine activist Dr. Deepak Chopra attacked Donald Trump Tuesday in an interview on Fox News’ The Alan Colmes Show, during which he called the presumptive GOP presidential nominee both “emotionally” and “mentally retarded.”
Chopra, 68, said that Trump epitomizes, among other things, the “darkest demons” of America’s “collective psyche.”
“I would never say this unless I believed it was 100% true, but he represents the racist, the bigot, the one who’s prejudiced, the one who is full of fear and hatred, the one who represents emotional retardation of a three-year old,” Chopra said of Trump. “And yet he’s so popular because he’s given permission to our collective psyche to express their darkest demons.”
Radio host Colmes asked Chopra if Trump is himself a racist and bigot, or whether he just represents those ideologies to his supporters.
“I think he is,” Chopra said, adding: “I think he’s racist, he’s bigoted, he’s prejudiced. He’s full of fear. He is angry. He has a lot of hatred. He pouts, he’s belligerent, he’s emotionally retarded.”
Later in the interview, Chopra doubled down on the notion that Trump suffers from retardation.
“Maybe I was too kind when I said he was emotionally retarded, maybe he’s mentally retarded too,” he said.
This is hardly the first time that Chopra has harshly criticized the GOP presidential nominee.
In March, Chopra told Fox Business that Trump resonates with the “dark side” of America: “He represents a state of collective consciousness of fear that has dormant prejudice and hatred,” he said.
On Monday, the Super Genes author penned a blog post for the Huffington Post entitled, “America’s Shadow: The Real Secret of Donald J. Trump.”
In his essay, Chopra writes that Trump “stands for” the “secret side of human nature … the shadow …” which “compounds all the dark impulses—hatred, aggression, sadism, selfishness, jealousy, resentment, sexual transgression—that are hidden out of sight.”
In his radio interview on Tuesday, the alternative medicine pioneer repeated his written claims from the day before, saying Trump is taking America to “the abyss.”
“This is taking us to the valley of death. This is taking us to the darkest place that humanity can go,” he said.
Corruption “beyond comprehension”
MAY 13, 2016
Earlier this week an investigation by the Daily Caller News Foundation revealed Democrat frontrunner Hillary Clinton and her husband received no less than $100 million from autocratic regimes in the Middle East.
“These regimes are buying access. You’ve got the Saudis. You’ve got the Kuwaitis, Oman, Qatar and the UAE. There are massive conflicts of interest. It’s beyond comprehension,” national security analyst Patrick Poole told The Daily Caller.
On Thursday, Stuart Varney at Fox News reported there are “major discrepancies” between what donors reported they gave to the Clinton Foundation and what the foundation reported they received.
In June, then Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina claimed “so little” of the charitable donations to the Clinton Foundation “actually go to charitable works.”
Clinton operatives insist the money showered on the Clintons did not have an effect on foreign policy while Hillary was secretary of state.
“Reports show that there were not donations to the Clinton Foundation that had any influence on State Dept. policy,” Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal told the the Benghazi Committee Thursday morning.
Also on Thursday, The Wall Street Journal reported the Clinton Global Initiative arranged a financial commitment that benefited a for-profit company owned in part by people with ties to the Clintons, including a current and a former Democratic official and a close friend of former President Bill Clinton.
Despite the denial, documents published by the Department of Justice under the Foreign Agents Registration Act show Clinton campaign financier Anthony Podesta personally handled a Saudi lobbying account. Podesta’s firm has lobbied for a number of corporations and countries, including Bank of America, BP, and Egypt.
Documents released in March by Judicial Watch also show numerous instances of influence peddling at the Clinton Foundation and the Clinton Global Initiative. Clinton and her State Department aides were involved in fundraising for the foundation, according to the documents.
“Our lawsuit had previously forced the disclosure of documents that provided a road map for over 200 conflict-of-interest rulings that led to at least $48 million in speaking fees for the Clintons during Hillary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state. Previously disclosed documents in this lawsuit, for example, raise questions about funds Clinton accepted from entities linked to Saudi Arabia, China and Iran, among others,” the organization reported.
In January, Fox News reported the FBI investigation into Clinton’s use of private email expanded to examine whether the “intersection” of Clinton Foundation work and State Department business may have violated public corruption laws.
One intelligence source told Fox News that FBI agents would be “screaming” if a prosecution is not pursued because “many previous public corruption cases have been made and successfully prosecuted with much less evidence than what is emerging in this investigation.”
