Britain Mobilizes Troops for Protection Against Terrorism | May 24, 2017

Britain raises terror threat level to ‘critical,’ suggesting another attack could follow Manchester bombing

|| U-T San Diego

“Britain began mobilizing troops to help protect key locations Tuesday as the government warned of the potential for another terrorist attack in the wake of a suicide bombing that killed 22 people outside a Manchester arena.

For the first time in 10 years, the government raised its terrorism threat level from “severe” to “critical” after the militant group Islamic State claimed responsibility for the Monday night attack that also injured at least 59 people leaving an Ariana Grande concert.

“The work undertaken throughout the day has revealed that it is a possibility we cannot ignore that there is a wider group of individuals linked to this attack,” Prime Minister Theresa May announced, adding that counter-terrorism officials believe “not only that an attack remains highly likely, but that a further attack may be imminent.”

The 22-year-old bomber, identified as Salman Abedi, is an English-born son of Libyan immigrants who was a student at the University of Salford in Manchester.

The attack is the latest to plunge Europe into a cycle of grief, fear and political recriminations, as Muslims in Manchester condemned the bombing, parents anguished over the many youngsters killed and injured, and authorities struggled to learn whether the bomber had help.

“So many young, beautiful, innocent people living and enjoying their lives murdered by evil losers in life,” President Trump said while visiting Bethlehem in the West Bank. “I won’t call them monsters because they would like that term, they would think that’s a great name. I will call them losers because that’s what they are.

Abedi had been investigated by British authorities for unspecified reasons, according to a U.S. law enforcement official who has been briefed on the investigation.

His 23-year-old brother has also been taken into custody, the official said, but it is unclear whether he will be charged.

In a statement released on social media, Islamic State said a “soldier of the [caliphate]” had “managed to place explosive devices in the midst of the gatherings of the Crusaders in … Manchester.”

It said the attack was an “endeavor to terrorize the mushrikin,” using the Arabic word for polytheists, a pejorative that includes Christians, according to the group’s ideology, and it threatened to carry out more attacks.

“What comes next,” it said, “will be more severe on the worshipers of the Cross and their allies, by Allah’s permission.”

Claims of previous lone-wolf attacks perpetrated by Islamic State supporters have often come from the Amaq news agency before being acknowledged by Islamic State in a later statement. But Tuesday’s claim first came from Islamic State’s media branch, hinting the attacker had a more direct link to the group.

Police said the blast was triggered by a man carrying an improvised explosive device near the exits at the arena just a few minutes after Grande had finished singing her final song, “Dangerous Woman,” and left the stage. Grande was not harmed and has said she was devastated by the attack.”

22 Dead, 120 Injured, Youngest Victim Eight Years Old After ‘Suicide Bomb’ at UK Ariana Grande Concert

|| Breitbart

“22 people have been confirmed dead and around 120 others are injured following reports of multiple explosions after an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester in the North of England on Monday Evening.

Greater Manchester Police originally said there had been a “number of fatalities and others injured” at the Manchester Arena, where Grammy-nominated pop singer Ariana Grande was performing. Nineteen people were confirmed dead as of 8pm EST.

Following the terror threat level being raised to its highest rating, critical, London’s Metropolitan police confirmed the military will be working under the police and deployed as armed guards across key locations in London.

In a statement, the Metropolitan Police Services (MPS) confirmed: “As part of the pre-planned and tested deployment under Operation Temperer the military will be working under the MPS command structure to provide static armed guarding at key locations. This will include Buckingham Palace, Downing Street, Embassies and the Palace of Westminster. This will free up armed officers to carry out patrols.”

Commander Jane Connors, leading the London policing operation, said: “We are using every tactical option – not just through the use of armed officers but ongoing work by the Counter Terrorism Command; working with partner agencies and gathering community intelligence.

“Operation Temperer is now in force,” May stated. Operation Temperer is a plan formulated after the Paris massacre, once considered secret by the British government, that could put up to 5,000 soldiers on the streets in the event of a major terrorist attack.

May specifically stated that initiating Operation Temperer meant the protection of key sites would be handed over to military personnel instead of the police, freeing up police officers for other duties.

“You might also see military personnel deployed at certain events, such as concerts and sports matches, helping the police to keep the public safe,” the Prime Minister explained. “In all circumstances, members of the Armed Forces who are deployed in this way will be under the command of police officers.”

“I do not want the public to feel unduly alarmed,” she emphasized. “We have faced a serious terrorist threat in our country for many years. The operational response I have just outlined is a proportionate and sensible response to the threat that our security experts judge we face. I ask everyone to be vigilant and to cooperate with and support the police as they go about their important work.”

“The spirit of Manchester and the spirit of Britain is far mightier than the sick plots of depraved terrorists,” May declared. “That is why the terrorists will never win, and we will prevail.”

“The spirit of Manchester and the spirit of Britain is far mightier than the sick plots of depraved terrorists,” May declared. “That is why the terrorists will never win, and we will prevail.”

Singer Morrissey, who hails from Manchester and was celebrating his birthday in town when news of the bomb attack broke, wrote a furious Facebook post in which he excoriated British politicians for leaving the people at risk while they enjoy security protection.

“The anger is monumental. For what reason will this ever stop?” Morrissey asked, before calling everyone from the mayor of Manchester to the Queen of England on the carpet:

Theresa May says such attacks “will not break us”, but her own life is lived in a bullet-proof bubble, and she evidently does not need to identify any young people today in Manchester morgues. Also, “will not break us” means that the tragedy will not break her, or her policies on immigration. The young people of Manchester are already broken – thanks all the same, Theresa.

Sadiq Khan says “London is united with Manchester”, but he does not condemn Islamic State – who have claimed responsibility for the bomb. The Queen receives absurd praise for her ‘strong words’ against the attack, yet she does not cancel today’s garden party at Buckingham Palace – for which no criticism is allowed in the Britain of free press.

Manchester mayor Andy Burnham says the attack is the work of an “extremist”. An extreme what? An extreme rabbit?

In modern Britain, everyone seems petrified to officially say what we all say in private. Politicians tell us they are unafraid, but they are never the victims. How easy to be unafraid when one is protected from the line of fire. The people have no such protections.

Manchester concert bomber may have trained in Libya: report

|| NY Post

“The suicide bomber who killed 22 people outside an Ariana Grande concert in the U.K. had recently returned from Libya, it was reported on Tuesday.

Intelligence agencies are trying to determine whether Salman Abedi, who detonated a bomb just outside the Manchester Arena Monday night, received terror training in Libya, according to The Times of London.

The revelations came as thousands of troops were deployed to high-risk areas in the U.K. as the terror threat remained high.

A total of 22 people were killed in Monday night’s attack.”

Comey has put himself in a legal box with no good exit strategy | May 18, 2017

Gregg Jarrett: Comey’s revenge is a gun without powder

|| Fox News | Opinion

“James Comey was lying in wait.

His gun was cocked, he took aim and fired.  But his weapon was empty.

Three months ago, the then-FBI Director met with President Trump.  Following their private conversation, Comey did what he always does –he wrote a memorandum to himself memorializing the conversation.  Good lawyers do that routinely.

Now, only after Comey was fired, the memo magically surfaces in an inflammatory New York Times report which alleges that Mr. Trump asked Comey to end the Michael Flynn investigation.

Those who don’t know the first thing about the law immediately began hurling words like “obstruction of justice”, “high crimes and misdemeanors” and “impeachment“.   Typically, these people don’t know what they don’t know.

Here is what we do know.

Under the law, Comey is required to immediately inform the Department of Justice of any attempt to obstruct justice by any person, even the President of the United States.  Failure to do so would result in criminal charges against Comey.  (18 USC 4 and 28 USC 1361)  He would also, upon sufficient proof, lose his license to practice law.

So, if Comey believed Trump attempted to obstruct justice, did he comply with the law by reporting it to the DOJ?  If not, it calls into question whether the events occurred as the Times reported it.

Obstruction requires what’s called “specific intent” to interfere with a criminal case.  If Comey concluded, however, that Trump’s language was vague, ambiguous or elliptical, then he has no duty under the law to report it because it does not rise to the level of specific intent.  Thus, no crime.

There is no evidence Comey ever alerted officials at the Justice Department, as he is duty-bound to do.  Surely if he had, that incriminating information would have made its way to the public either by an indictment or, more likely, an investigation that could hardly be kept confidential in the intervening months.

Comey’s memo is being treated as a “smoking gun” only because the media and Democrats, likely prompted by Comey himself, are now peddling it that way.

Comey will soon testify before Congress about this and other matters.  His memo will likely be produced pursuant to a subpoena.  The words and the context will matter.

But by writing a memo, Comey has put himself in a box.  If he now accuses the President of obstruction, he places himself in legal jeopardy for failing to promptly and properly report it.  If he says it was merely an uncomfortable conversation, he clears the president of wrongdoing and sullies his own image as a guy who attempted to smear the man who fired him.

Either way, James Comey comes out a loser.  No matter.  The media will hail him a hero. ”

Seth Rich Found Alive by Police After DC Hit Died at Hospital | May 17, 2017

Seth Rich was ALIVE When Police Found Him – But Police Camera Video Went Missing

|| theGatewayPundit

“According to Public Incident Report CCN #16113797 dated July 10, 2016 by the Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police Department, former DNC employee and the leaker of emails to WikiLeaks, Seth Rich was alive when the police found him on that date. He died later that morning.  The report also notes that Rich was conscious and breathing with gunshot wounds to his back when the police found him. The report also notes that at least three of the police at the scene wore body cameras that night.

The video from the body cameras has gone missing.

Former Clinton Campaign Manager John Podesta wrote in an email released later by WikiLeaks that he was “definitely for making an example of a suspected leaker”:

Where are the police videos of Seth Rich the morning he died and what did he say?”

# Of Leaked DNC Docs Match # Of Docs Found On Seth Rich’s Computer

|| dcWhispers

“This makes for a rather disturbing coincidence. Last year Wikileaks released a statement indicating it was going to share leaked DNC-related documents outlining Democrat Party collusion to defeat Bernie Sanders, promote Hillary Clinton, etc. A breaking Fox News report out today has an FBI sources detailing the number of DNC documents that were found on DNC staffer Seth Rich’s computer following his death.

Here is the applicable Wikileaks announcement:

Starting on Friday 22 July 2016 at 10:30am EDT, WikiLeaks released over 2 publications 44,053 emails and 17,761 attachments from the top of the US Democratic National Committee

Now check out this paragraph from the breaking Fox News story on Seth Rich’s still-unsolved murder:

The federal investigator, who requested anonymity, said 44,053 emails and 17,761 attachments between Democratic National Committee leaders, spanning from January 2015 through late May 2016, were transferred from Rich to MacFadyen before May 21.

The number stated by Wikileaks and the number on Seth Rich’s computer are exactly the same.

First, ask yourself why the FBI responded so quickly to a “robbery gone wrong” as it did with Mr. Rich? This sort of crime would normally be the purview of local D.C. police.

Second, note how the numbers of leaks docs outline in the two reports are exactly the same.

Third, if the FBI did in fact confiscate Mr. Rich’s computer and confirmed the alleged connection between Rich and Wikileaks, that would be undeniable proof the entirety of the “Trump/Russia” story was a fabrication from the outset orchestrated by members of both the federal government (Deep State) and Mainstream Media power players – a fabrication that continues to be pushed to this day in an attempt to destroy the Trump presidency.

Fourth, why is it the shooting death of a young DNC staffer received no gun control outcry from Democrats? When do they ever pass on using such tragedies to promote their gun ban agenda? There was no such outcry. No media attention. No story. Seth Rich’s murder was largely ignored by the Mainstream Media and the very Democrats he worked with and for – including the Hillary Clinton campaign.

Finally, as incredible as the above all sounds, if true, then every day Donald Trump remains President is another day the Deep State and its media allies fear full discovery. They cannot allow a Trump presidency to continue. That is why even a growing number of liberals have become unsettled over how negative and hysterical the media coverage of Mr. Trump has become. Fear of the truth being known can be a motivator to do almost anything by those who wish to keep that truth hidden.

If this doesn’t send chills down your spine you’re not paying attention.”

Chilling similarities between Seth Rich murder and ‘Clinton Body Count’ victims

|| WND


“The unsolved case of Democratic National Committee data analyst Seth Rich’s death shares some eerie similarities with many mysterious deaths of individuals linked to former President Bill Clinton and twice failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Just as in the Rich case, several of the people who died mysterious deaths were shot spontaneously and in public places, sometimes from behind, sometimes by unknown assailants and often just before they were set to release incriminating evidence concerning the Clintons’ activities. In most cases, there were no signs of theft at the crime scenes. And while some of the deaths were ruled suicides, other cases remain a mystery.

Rich worked for the Democratic National Committee as a data analyst and reportedly sent more than 44,000 DNC emails to WikiLeaks, including 17,761 attachments, from January 2015 through the end of May 2016. As WND reported, the DNC staffer was reported to have been in contact with WikiLeaks Director Gavin MacFadyen, who died just 17 days before the election of lung cancer.

Rich was mysteriously shot and killed July 10, 2016. As WND reported, Rich was murdered near his affluent neighborhood in Washington, D.C. He was shot in the back with a handgun at 4:18 a.m. while he walked home, and nothing was taken from him. Rich, who called several people as he later walked home, was talking on the phone with his girlfriend, Kelsey Murka, when he was accosted a block from his house. He was transported to a local hospital and was pronounced dead at 5:57 a.m.

“If it was a robbery it failed because he still has his watch, he still has his money, he still has his credit cards, still had his phone, so it was a wasted effort except we lost a life,” said Rich’s father, Joel, shortly after the bizarre murder.

On July 22, just 12 days after Rich’s death and days before the Democratic Party Convention in Philadelphia, WikiLeaks released 20,000 emails from DNC officials.

Those leaked emails revealed, among other things, that the DNC tried to tip the scales in favor of Hillary Clinton’s campaign and prevent Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders from becoming the party’s nominee. The leaks were cited by some Democrats as one explanation for Clinton’s election loss. Many accused the Russians of “hacking” and turning the tide for then-GOP candidate Donald Trump during the 2016 election.

In one email released by WikiLeaks, Clinton campaign Chairman John Podesta said he’d like to “make an example” out of the person who leaked the emails.

“I’m definitely for making an example of a suspected leaker whether or not we have any real basis for it,” Podesta wrote on Feb. 22, 2015, according to WikiLeaks.”

Judicial Watch Releases New Huma Abedin classified emails sent on unsecured servers | May 17, 2017

New Huma Abedin Emails Reveal Additional Instances of Clinton Sending and Receiving Classified Emails Through Unsecure Server

|| Judicial Watch

“Judicial Watch today released 894 pages of new State Department documents, including previously unreleased email exchanges in which former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was sent additional classified information through her unsecure clintonmail.com email account by top aide Huma Abedin. The Abedin emails also include repeated instances of Clinton’s detailed daily schedules being sent to top Clinton Foundation officials at unsecured email addresses.

The records were produced for Judicial Watch by the State Department from the non-state.gov email accounts of Abedin.  The records were obtained in response to a court order from a May 5, 2015, lawsuit filed against the State Department (Judicial Watch, Inc. v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:15-cv-00684)) after it failed to respond to a March 18, 2015, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request seeking:

  • All emails of official State Department business received or sent by former Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin from January 1, 2009 through February 1, 2013 using a non-“state.gov” email address.

The new documents included 29 email exchanges not previously turned over to the State Department, bringing the known total to date to at least 317 emails that were not part of the 55,000 pages of emails that Clinton turned over to the State Department. These records further appear to contradict statements by Clinton that, “as far as she knew,” all of her government emails were turned over to the State Department.

The emails show classified information was sent through the clintonemail.com account:

The new Abedin emails also reveal four instances in which Clinton’s then- scheduler Lona Valmoro forwarded the former secretary of state’s detailed daily schedule to top Clinton Foundation officials. In each case, those who received the schedules included Bill Clinton’s personal scheduler and Foundation aide Terry Krinvic, Justin Cooper , a then-aide to President Clinton who helped manage Hillary Clinton’s unsecure email system, and Clinton Foundation director Doug Band.

The Abedin emails contain information sent from Clinton’s unsecured HDR22@clintonemail.com account in which she reminds an aide that she is to have a talk with New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand on “cybersecurity” and a reference to a “HRC Support Network”:

Gov Brown Defends Recall Senator who Caved on CA Fuel Tax Vote | May 16, 2017

Gov. Brown to host fundraiser for senator facing possible recall to show ‘he’s got his back’ after tax vote, aide says

|| LA Times

“Gov. Jerry Brown is taking the unusual step of hosting a political fundraiser for state Sen. Josh Newman (D-Fullerton) because he thinks it is unfair that some activists are trying to recall Newman for his vote favoring an increase in gas taxes to pay for road repairs, Brown’s top aide said Monday.

The Brown camp also is skeptical that opponents of the gas tax bill will be able to carry out their threat of qualifying an initiative to repeal Senate Bill 1 but are prepared to do battle if it makes the ballot.

The governor was a leading proponent of the legislation, which passed the Legislature with no votes to spare and will raise $5.2 billion annually for road repairs and mass transit through an increase in gas taxes and vehicle fees.

“It is unusual for him to do an individual legislator’s fundraiser because if he did one he would have do to lots, but Josh is under unfair attack and so the governor wants to make sure he knows that he’s got his back — that’s why he is stepping out and doing this for him,” said Nancy McFadden, the governor’s top aide.

Brown is headlining a fundraiser on May 23 at de Vere’s Irish Pub in Sacramento, billed as an event to support Newman’s reelection campaign. Donors are asked to give up to $4,400 to Newman’s 2020 Senate campaign committee, although the money can be shifted to fighting a recall measure if one qualifies.

Recall papers were filed last month by Elvira Moreno and 59 others, with the aid of conservative radio talk-show host Carl DeMaio. They must collect 63,592 signatures of registered voters in 160 days to qualify the measure for the ballot.

Assemblyman Travis Allen (R-Huntington Beach) and others have also proposed an initiative drive to put a measure on the 2018 ballot to repeal the gas tax.

McFadden was skeptical the measure would make the ballot.

“We have done a number of initiatives over the past six years so we know how hard it is to qualify,” she said.

If it does qualify?

“We are going to defend the work we did. Absolutely,” McFadden said.”

Illegal Aliens Caught working on U.S. Air Base | May 15, 2017

ICE Nabs Illegals Working Construction On Travis Air Force Base

|| Daily Caller

“Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents have arrested illegal aliens working construction at the Travis Air Force Base and are looking to deport them as soon as possible.

ICE quickly arrived on the scene after a military official realized that two illegals, Hugo Mejia and Rodrigo Nuñez, did not have valid social security numbers and reported the pair of construction workers at the base, The Mercury News reports.

After arresting Mejia and Nuñez, ICE has placed the men in expedited deportation proceedings, as both men have removal orders stemming from when they entered the country illegally over a decade ago.

Mejia is naturally upset. He told The Mercury News in Spanish, while detained at the Rio Cosumnes Correctional Center, that he has a good track record.

“I’ve been here for 17 years and my record is excellent,” he said. “I’ve never done anything to anyone. My bills are paid on time, I have a clean record, we’ve never asked the government for help.”

ICE told The Mercury News that the two men “will remain in ICE custody pending court proceedings and it will be up to a judge with the Department of Justice’s Executive Office for Immigration Review to determine whether they will be subject to removal from the U.S.”

Justice Scalia Believed Supreme Court was Being Surveilled by Obama

|| theGatewayPundit

“Judge Andrew Napolitano, Fox News senior judicial analyst, went on FOX Business Network on Monday to discuss allegations Senator Rand Paul and another senator were under surveillance by the Obama administration.

Napolitano also dropped a bomb on the Obama administration spying on the US Supreme Court.

Judge Napolitano: Justice Scalia told me that he often thought the court was being surveilled. And he told me that probably four or five years ago…If they had to unmask Senator Paul’s name to reveal a conversation he was having with a foreign agent and the foreign agent was hostile to the United States they can do that. That’s not what he’s talking about. They’re talking about unmasking him when he’s having a conversation with his campaign manager when he’s running in the Republican primary.

During the discussion Judge Napolitano also said Barack Obama could be subpoenaed to testify if he viewed the unmasked intelligence.”

Utility Regulators May Withhold Governor Brown’s emails surrounding San Onofre Nuke Closure | May 13, 2017

State utility regulators will again consider releasing San Onofre emails

|| U-T San Diego

“The day after then-Sen. Barbara Boxer called on the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate Southern California Edison’s handling of the San Onofre nuclear plant, utility executive Michael Hoover sent an urgent email to another company official.

“We have a small window of opportunity to work with parties to implement a shutdown in exchange for getting our money back,” Hoover wrote to senior vice president Les Starck May 29, 2013. “That window will close soon and we will lose a very good opportunity.”

The next week, Edison International CEO Ted Craver placed a call to Gov. Jerry Brown — then with President Barack Obama in the Palm Springs area — to inform the governor that the company decided to close the broken power plant for good.

Craver later emailed his board of directors, alerting them to the decision and recounting his conversation with Brown.

The whirlwind of private communications and regulatory decisions surrounding the 2012 closure of the San Onofre plant became clearer after emails and other documents were released under a multitude of requests under the California Public Records Act.

Yet the California Public Utilities Commission continues to withhold specific emails between regulators and the Governor’s Office that could shed more light on why utility ratepayers are being charged billions of dollars for failure of the power plant north of Oceanside.

The commission on Thursday will consider whether to release more than 60 San Onofre-related emails exchanged between commission President Michael Picker and the Governor’s Office. The staff’s recommendation is that the board not release the emails to San Diego consumer attorney Michael Aguirre.

The item is posted on the commission’s consent agenda, where matters considered routine and not worthy of public debate are voted on in bulk. According to the draft resolution, the emails are not subject to disclosure because they are privileged communications.

“Aguirre claims the withheld records should be disclosed because the ‘public is highly interested in knowing the role the Governor’s office played in connection with San Onofre’,” it states.

”The plain language of Govt. Code section 6254(l), however, shows that the exemption to disclosure of documents exchanged with the Governor’s Office is an absolute exemption; it does not include a balancing test. Therefore, the public’s alleged interests in the disclosure of these records are not relevant.”

Commission spokeswoman Terrie Prosper said there is no legal requirement for commissioners to discuss every item on the agenda.

“The reasoning behind a commission decision or order is in the text of the order or decision itself,” she wrote in an email. “A vote of the consent agenda is a formal action.”

The agenda item Thursday follows a lawsuit Aguirre filed in 2015, arguing that the commission was improperly withholding the emails.

A San Francisco Superior Court judge was sympathetic to Aguirre’s case.

“There’s something about this that just doesn’t sound right, about stonewalling public information like this,” Judge Ernest Goldsmith told commission lawyers. “That’s the optics of where we are: There’s something the PUC doesn’t want out there.”

Before he could review the emails in chambers to decide whether they should be released, an appeals court sent the dispute back to the commission.

The appeals court agreed with the the utilities commission that the commission itself — not a judge — is the right place to go to contest a records request rejection by the commission.

A denial by the commission on Thursday could then be appealed to the state appeals court.

Aguirre and law partner Maria Severson complained that the commission excluded from the public file their petition outlining the events surrounding the closure — including emails like the one Hoover sent his colleague in 2013, when the company was deciding whether to repair or abandon the nuclear plant.

“The only document the PUC has before them is a proposed resolution and a summary of our argument,” Severson said. “That is disingenuous.”

Prosper said that the petition is available to commissioners, even if it’s not publicly posted with the commission agenda.

The San Diego lawyers said the emails between Picker and the Governor’s Office could explain how ratepayers ended up being charged $3.3 billion of the $4.7 billion in premature closure costs.

“They fought us at the Court of Appeal and now they fail to publicly disclose the damning evidence that commands release of the records,” Severson said. “By placing the matter on consent agenda without a hearing, they are again shutting out the public.”

Liza Tucker of Consumer Watchdog, an advocacy group based in Santa Monica, said utility regulators have no business withholding records related to the plant closure and its settlement costs.

“That is an excuse to make sure the public never gets to the bottom of what really went down in the settlement over San Onofre,” she said. “It doesn’t answer the question about whether government officials helped Southern California Edison evade responsibility for one of the biggest financial and environmental disasters in the state.”
